force is only the reflection of the
way that labor cast its ballot last
It labor would stick to its class
and not scab on ejection day, then
peaceable assembly, free speech and
the conflict between labor and the
police would be ended. Chas. Johnson.
JUST OPINION. One Day Book
forum writer recently called me a
know-it-all - on - all - subjects. Good
Lord, man, I just give my opinions!
Supposing half of them are in error.
Yes, what if only one per cent are
good? Is not this one lost sheep idea
worth the search? We are all more
or less wrong. If not, we would be
elsewhere. Just read the paid writ
ers in high-priced periodicals to show
what crazy ideas have a market
value. A cheap clerk on a beer sal
ary is not supposed to possess the
wisdom of a Solomon or the genius
of an Edison. Allen Steven.
I want to write a few more lines
on the war question and will try to
show that it is not foolish to talk
against war and preparedness. For
years Germany, England and other
European countries have been pre
paring and boasting of their power
ful armies and navies.
Any man with the least foresight
would have known hia war was
coming years ago. England boasted
of her navy and Germany of her
army, and now they are at it, trying
to find out which is the best
America is not prepared and it is
a mighty good thing she is not or
she would be in it, too, especially if
she had a fighting president and not
so many peace seekers. We cannot
be sure how America would come
out in case of war, no matter how
well she prepared.
Germany thought the allies would
seek peace in a few months and the
allies thought Germany would do
the .same, but thejr are at it jet,
fiercer than ever, with no peace in
Have Socialism in your head now,
even under capitalism, and don't
preach preparedness for war, the
very thing the capitalists are wish
ing for and ask you to work for.
Workers killing workers is not So
cialism, and preaching war will
never fetch itFrank Smith.
GETTING THE ILL VOTE. Had
the question of suffrage been put up
to the noblemen of Illinois would
they have given women the vote?
Probably not They'd have voted
the same as their neighbors in Ohio
and Missouri. The Illinois women
were given the vote by a corrup, un
representative legislature and it
would seem that the only hope" of
the suffering voteless females in
New Jersey lies in the removal of the
whisky trade from Peoria to Hobo
ken. What has equal suffrage accom
plished? The oldest suffrage state,
Wyoming, is today the most wide
open in tie west Colorado, about
the second state to give equal rights
to women, is the most lawless and
exploited. In Washington the same
bunch of noble stiffs who, a few
years ago gave women the right to
vote assembled last fall with the
"votresses" and knocked the eight
hour law cold.
It may be true that there are lots
of whisky-crazed men, but there are
just as many religion-crazed women
and between the two grafters, the
divekeeper and the parson, there is
but little to choose. Wm. Burton.

Drill Sergeant What in the deuce

your shots going?"
