Manhas changed his methods^since the prehistoric time when the^cannibalistic giant who could wield^the heaviest clubs became chief of^the motly tribes of cave dwellers.^These ancient chieftains to glut their^pride and proclaim their powers to^admiring followers decorated their^caves with the skulls of their van^ijuished opponents. To the com^mon people of those days the chief^was the ideal man, and was treated^with reverence, respected for his^mighty deeds, he had ability as the^polished skulls of a hundred men^testified. Our captains of industry^are the modern cannibal chiefs.^The primal instinct of man remains^the same, a veneer of civilization^thinly covers the cruelty, but the^greed is much greater in its scope.^Instead of the swift blow with a^club which at most could but kill^one victim at a time, our modern^cannibals use the scientific weapon,^private ownership of the^ machinery^of production, and instead of a sin^^gle victim murder thousands yearly,^to glut their greed for profit. The^vast majority of their victims do not^cutter the quick death, but struggle^though life enduring the pangs of^hunger, living in foul dens, the air^of which reeks with disease, no^prospect but dull, soul destroying^toil. Our modern system is much^better for the chiefs than the pre^^historic method; then the chief had^to work killing victims to live on,^now the victims kill themselves pro^^ducing luxuries for the chief who do^not have to labor. The people slave^because necessity drives them to it^and no other taskmaster is needed.^To obtain the means to sustain life^we labor, produce abundance to^gratify every want and desire of^man, but the employing class takes^all, and in return for our labor dole^out in wages just sufficient to sustain^life. And, as there are many men^for every job, it is only the more^energetic and capable men who can^obtain employment at callings which^ensure a small degree of comfort.^Hut as each of the preceeding sys^^tems of producing the necessities of^life have disappeared from the eirth.^When no longer capable of feeding^the majority of its slaves, so the^capitalist system will change to the^cooperative commonwealth when the^permanent army of unemployed^reaches a few million more in num^^bers.
Thenin the victory of the work^^ing class, the struggle between peo^^ple of different classes, based on^their economic condition, will cease^and n.^n assured of the necessities^of comfortable life, will be able to^practice the golden rule and become^a truly civilized being.
TheIrish landlord Scully who^some years ago became notorious^for the evictions carried on by his^orders in the west of Ireland, owns^47,000 acres of good land in Logan^county, III., where he has estab^^lished the Irish system of landlord^^ism. The farms are let in Xoor 160^acre tracts at the rate of $4.50 per^acre but the tenant must make all^necessary improvements and before^any part of the crop raised on the^land can be sold, Scully must be^paid the cash by these ^independ^^ent American farmers.
Scullybought the land from the^government several years ago for^11.25 per acre, the increase in pop^^ulation, has made the property val^^uable, so without any work or further^expense he yearly receives four dol^^lars and fifty cents per acre from it.

thestock market is held up, when^naturally the conditions indicate a^falling market. The brothers are^holding the prices of stock high with^the hope that the suckers can be^convinced this is the time to buy.^No gambler can take even chances^with his victim, he must have the^majority of chances in his favor.^Consequently the legal stock gam^^bler manipulates the market to en^^able him to rob his victim, just as^the illegal gambler who runs rou^^lette wheels or pharo tables has a^variety of chances and devices^which enables him to win. There^is no real difference between the^two, both are scheming to rob^suckers and use slightly different^methods; and of the two the illegal^gambler is by far the better man, as^he does not make hypocritical claim^to respectability, nor hide his rob^^bery under a cloak called high^finance.
Thedestruction and sinking in^less than three minutes of one of^Russia's greatest battleships demon^^strates that the modern battleship is^nothing but a death trap. And in^^stead of a tremendous engine of de^^struction, almost invulnerable, as^is popularly believed is in fact^one of the easiest destroyed of^all the types of warships. The^weight of armour plate or turrets^and water line renders the ship so^unstable that a comparatively small^injury on, or below water line will^cause the ship to turn turtle. The^reason governments build these^monstrosities is because of the ex^^traordinary opportunity for graft^by their construction. One battle^ship will cost the government as^much as several cruisers and of the^additional cost a very large percent^age is profit. Our patriotic capital^^ists will sacrifice everything, but^profit, for the country. They are^very willing to construct ships that^they know are defective and are al^^most sure to cause the loss of human^life. There is profit in battleships,^ar.u it a few hundred workingmen^are drowned what matter, capitalism^must have profits.
Thebosses are opposing eight-hour^legislation in congress and claim it^is tyrannical. They also oppose em^^ployers liability acts or any legisla^^tion favoring the majority of the^people. lor twenty years a lobby^of earnest union men have been^striving to have congress pass laws^to benefit labor, but have accom^^plished nothing. It is time for the^people to realize that the congress^and senate of these United States^are composed of men of the capi^^talist class, consequently it is folly^to expect them to pass laws favor^^able to labor; because if shorter^hours are granted to workers there^is less profit for the employer.
Sometimesthe employers strive^to drive men harder for the shorter^time and thus make op the loss, but^the condition cannot long prevail^and the result is eventually increas^^ed cost of production except where^the adoption of improved machinery^eliminates men thus reducing cost.^It is only to be expected that our^law makers refuse to sanction such^measures, and if they do pass one^to make political capital: the su^^preme court can be depended on to^declare the law unconstitutional.^And even when adopted by the^people as a constitutional amend^^ment, as in Colorado; the bosses^refuse to be bound by its
menof their own class, laborers to^congress, and make the laws instead^of begging for them.
SocialistParty.^William Mailly, Nat'l Secretary,^Omaha, Nebr., Apr. 25, 1904.
Contributionshave been made to^the National Organizing Fund since^last report to the amount of $ 13.50;^previously reported, $ 3,167.96;^total, ^3,181.46.
Thebulletin is short this week be^^cause of making preparations for^removal of the office furniture to^the seat of new headquars. Address^mail as usual until official anounce-^ment of the new address is given.
TheNew England Passenger As^^sociation has also given rate of one^fare and one third on certificate plan^under same conditions as other pas^senger associations previously re^^ported. All who come to the national^convention should remember they^must get delegates certificate from^railroad agent at time of purchasing^ticket if they want reduced fare^home from Chicago.
StateSecretary Jas. S. Smith of^Illinois has issued a circular of in^^formation concerning hotel accom^^modations at the conventions. Those^writing for this information should^enclose stamp for reply.
TheIllinois State Committee re^^ports the endorsement of Comrades^Sam Block and M. W. Speare for^the reserve list. Unless objections^are raised and a direct vote called^for the names will be placed on the^list in three weeks from date. The^State Committee of New York has^withdrawn the endorsement of L. D.^Mayes as speaker for reserve list,^because of a protest from Local^Rochester.
MorrisHillquit has been re-elect^ed National Committeeman for New^York; and Chas. H. Towner, Cov^^ington, has been elected to fill the^vacancy caused by resignation of^Chas. Dobbs, as National Com^^mitteeman for Kentucky.
Noreport has been made to the^National Committee conceraing the^actions of the Ouorum because of^the National Secretary's absence,^but in view of the fact that no re^^port will be made next vteek and^probably not the next. I will report^that the Ouorum has approved of^the following proportions sa-bmitted^under dates given:
March1, Temporary suspension^of ^Foreign Bulletin,^ ^Annual^Report;^ withholding names of J.^H. Osborne from reserve list pending^further instructions from state com^^mittee of Colorado because of pro^^test from State Committeeman R. A.^Southworth. (Wrote Slate Secretary^Martin, April rjth for reply to^letter of March nth relative to pro^^test. )
March29th, -Temporary post^^ponement of sending organizer to^Wisconsin at expense of National
AprilXr - Submitting nominations^for delegates to National Conven^tion from (Georgia after regular time^because of claim that call for nomi^^nations had not been received.
Thevote on location of National^headquarters has resulted in the se^^lection of (Chicago as you will see^by enclosed report. The office furn^^iture is being moved at once so that^we may, if possible, get settled in^new office rooms before the conven^^tion.
Robt.Lillard and family have^moved to their new ranch just above^the old Shay place. He has a splen^^did location as he has located under^the new ditch that the Fergus Cattle^Co., have taken out of Armells.
Quite,a number of boats are going^by bound for the Worlds Fair at St.^Louis.
Mr.Davis crossed the' river here^and is going to work around Malta^for the summer.
Thecattle wintered here in good^shape without any loss; the grass^on the range is green now and stock^is picking up.
Theice went out of the river heie^the 6th. Mr. Frost went down the^river two days later with his ferry.^Mr. King accompanied him from^Benton.
Anumber of bob cats in the bot^^toms and they are playing havoc^with tne rabbit industry and it is^almost impossible for the ranchers^to get fresh meat.
Thereis a large mountain lion^around these parts; he has been seen^frequently but is so shy it is almost^impossible to get a shot at him and^quite a few large wolves which get^away with the calves.
Mr.Carney is busy putting in a^crop and every one around here is^making garden or seeding. Most of^the ranchers along the river intend^to raise their own grain and vegeta^^bles this year and Lewistown can^expect to get her tropical fruit from^this section in time as this is the^banana !^e!t of Montan.t and when^we get tired ranching we can rest^by going down to the river and^catching the festive catfish.

TheSocialists recogni/e that the^class struggle between the capitalist^and the working class, now^ that it is^there by force of circumstances,^cannot be ended by economic means.^The mere economic organization of^the working class can never end in^any other solution but violence. The^omly way to meet the problem suc^^cessfully, and without bloodshed, is^to supplement the economic class^struggle by the political class strug^^gle at the ballot box. Kconomic or^^ganisation as a class and political^organization as a class, that is the^only way to solve the riddle of how^to abolish classes and class struggles.
Thecapitalist themselves, if they^read the signs of the times correctly^should do everything in their power^to hasten the political organization^of the working class in the Socialist^party. Pat in the further course of^trust development, a commercial^crisis through overproduction, and^therefore, a gigantic unemployed^problem, is looming up in the hori^^zon of the near future. When that^time comes, there are only Imp ways^of meeting the situation: One is to^slaughter the gungry masses, to stifle^the class sf ^ggle in blood, and to^travel the same weary road all over^again, through the same gruesome^strife and murder, to again come to^the same dilemma. The other is the^presence of a Socialist organization^strong enough to guide the working^class, and also the capitalist class,^by the bridle of reason, to yield to^the Socialist majority in conformity^w;th the democratic spirit of this^country, and to reorganize society^on the basis of collectivism. There^will then be only one class, the work^^ing class, who will buihl the society^of the future with brain and brawn,^a society without class antagonisms^and without class hatred. In one^word, to abolish class hatred we^must abolish the economic condi^^tions that create classes and class^hatred.
