THESE PROPOSITIONS. The
propositions of Sirfessor Superite
1 Exploitation is the first law of
progress; 2 Socialism is a brain dis
ease; 3 The conscious ego.
No. 1 is right: "Exploit to get
the value out of anything." Mr.
Webster's dictionary. Capitalism
can't distribute what It produces. As
an agency of exploitation it must
fail. Capitalism cannot utilize the
labor-power of society. As an agency
of exploitation, again it must fail.
No. 2 is right: Capitalism is a
frenzy. Socialism is a reflection in
thought upon the aberrations of cap
italism in fact It shows the cause
and cure. It is a brain dis-ease.
Also a muscle dis-ease.
No. 3 is right: "Ego," in Latin,
means "L" "Conscious ego," "You
can't fool me." I say: "You can't
fool me, either."
It is only when we see two con
scious egos with opposite interests
that we begin to get an idea of the
classification of conscious egos. The
one, doing the work of the boss con
scious egos, well protected, lords it
over the conscious ego, who, because
his ancestors left him nothing but
the world, has to peddle his labor to
exist and sheds crocodile tears over
the statements of capitalistic apolo
gists who call him " a cheap organ
izm," " a simpoleon" and his ideas
Some conscious egos, who, being
well fed, yet realizing that some
thing is rotten, do not express their
material interests in such drastic
language, but in "sweeter reason
ableness" temper the wind to the
shorn lamb by advocating free milk
And now let me offer a proposition
for him to launch, his brick-bats of
solid concrete against: Socialism
demands the right to work. Dou
THE HUNTING SEASON. The
season has again opened here in Chi
cago, but only for policemen and sa
loonkeepers; so it don't matter.
No wonder the saloonkeepers are
shot by the boy bandits. The school
books, teachers and reformers tell
them what an awful thing drink and
the saloon is. All they hear from
preachers and in churches about the
saloon and saloonkeeper is that it
ought to be put out of business and
the saloonkeeper sent to Billy Sun
The young hero -has no more In
dians to fight, so he steps into a b'eer
guzzeling hell-hole, takes a drink of
ginger ale and kills the saloonkeeper.
Hurrah, give the hero a big headline
in the paper. Have know-it-all re
former show how statistics prove
that the saloonkeepers and the sa
loons are the cause of the murders,
and try and have another law to cur
tail the privileges of 90 per cent of
the people. Saloonkeeper.
TOBOGGANING. Now that toi

Douglas parks, it is necessary to

down the slide and return immediate
ly for another, going to the head of
the line, in front of thbse who had
been waiting for half hour or more,

Why should such parties have a
special privilege, or special permit for
the slide when hundreds of others,
who are out to enjoy the sport just as
well, must wait their turn in line.
