3f The Class Fight S
BYA. T. HARVEY
Withthat hypocrisy, which is the^leading characteristic of the capi^^talist class, the National Clothiers^association, states that their advo^^cacy of the open shop is in the in^^terests of the poor down trodden^worker. Their declaration is in^keeping with the tactics of the citi^^zens alliance and has for its object^the destruction of unionism. This^is a very powerfnl incentive to the^Clothiers association. Mentally they^can see the halcyon days when the^resistance of the unions removed,^all goods would be manufactured in^the sweatshops, where the magnifi^^cent salaries paid the workers, en^^ables them to drink tea and eat^bread three times daily, when work^^ing by practicing economy they can^extravigantly indulge in red h^r^rings at Christmas. The work^would then be performed in 'he^wretched dens in which the tailors^live; our captains of industry would^not have to rent large rooms for^workshops; this, with the great de^^crease in wages adds materially to^the possible profits of the masters,^so they suddenly discover that the^open shop is such a good thing for^the worker, always having his in^^terests at heart, they decide to^adopt it.
Thereis a great strike in prospect^the Garment Workers union must^fight to protect the interests of its^members; again labor will try the^guage of battle on ground of the^master's choice. The panic is on,^and the manufacturers would have^to shut down for a long time in^order to allow the surplus clothing^in the hands of the retailers and^jobbers to be sold. Should the oper^atives strike the chances of victory^are all in favor of the rich, who in^the strike will find a splendid excuse^for shutting down, and allowing king^hunger their able allie to fight the^unions for thein. a few bitter de^^feats on industrial ground and the^unionists will see the folly of elect^^ing capitalists to office, and then ex^^pecting them to prove traitors to^their interests, as exploiters of labor^by supporting the strikers, or even^refusing to actively aid the capital^^ists. It is not reasonable to expect^capitalists to help labor, and before^long the unionists will be forced to^vote as they strike against the class^that robs them.
Pueblo,Colo., May 2. ^ Judge^Walter n. Nixon in the district^court this afternoon issued an order^restiaining the machinists of the^Santa Fe railroad at Denver, Pueblo,^la Junta and Trinidad from going^on strike. No men had went out^here and only a few had obeyed the^strike order at I.a Junta.

ixeand fight but until they learn^that this is a political question and^must be settled at the ballot box^they will not accomplish much^Farmers and stockmen will learn^this quickly and from a strong sec^tnin of the Socialist Party, the or^gani/.ation of the world's workers^demanding the full product of their^toil.
Menwho have never reada line of^any Socialist classic and but little of^anytr.ir.g else, look wise and tell, that^Socialism has been a failure when^^ever it has been tried. Socialism^has never been tried, it is nothing^but the ignorance of vast numbers^of people on this all important sub^^ject that enables the wise(, ^) ones to^get a hearing. The capitalists no^doubt refer to some of the many^Utopian colonies which have been^started in various states, with in^different success, about the only^ones remaining are those bound to^^gether by religious ties. These com^munistic colonies do not, and can^^not apply the Socialist philosophy.^Socialism will come as capitalism^came, through economic evolution,^and the acceptance by the majority^of the people of Socialist ideas.^Careful students of present day^economic conditions, believe that^we are very near the change in sup^^port of their views they point out^the rapid movement of the nation's^wealth into the hands of a very few^men. We have become used to the^outward signs of this concentration^and scarcely notice it any more.^Three years ago there was no such^thing as a steel trust, yet we already^feel that Schwab's trust is quite an^ancient affair. Goaded on by the^necessity of investing the vast^profits resulting from ownership of^the trusts, our capitalists are ever^seeking new outlets for their surplus^money. The latest reported exten-^tion is the organizing of the whole^^sale grocery business of the country^by Rockefeller. At the present rate^of increase he will with his little^group of capitalists own the United^States in seven years. This will^force the people to adopt Socialism^the public ownership of all sources^of wealth.
Redemocanpoliticians weep salt^tears at the thought of the rank in^^justice the Socialists would inflict on^the poor farmer, who is usually pic^^tured as a hard working man saving^every cent to purchase necessary^impliments to work the place he has^redeemed from the wilderness. Vet^despite these esteemable traits, we^Socialists are supposed to have but^one desire and that is to take the

littlehome, rob him of the small^portion of the fruits of his labor^that capitalism has left him. The^farmer is a laborer, producing^wealth, which the people of the na^tion must have to live, the Socialists^are a party of the working class and^are struggling to gain possession of^the powers of government for the^purpose of securing to the workers^the foil product of their labor. This^can only be done by adopting the^Socialist plan the collective owner^^ship of all wealth, land included.^Hut the farmer will never be dis^tnrbed in possession of his farm, and^can continue to I've on and cultivate^it as he sees fit. He will be relieved^of ell the worry of debt, no interest^rent or profit sharks to rob him; in^^stead of long hours of labor for cap^ilalists who now take the proceeds^he will work min; hours less and^receive the full produ*.*. It is man-^festly impossible to say just what
votedinto power by them, so in^^junctions are the very best medicine^you can administer to cure the se^^vere attack of assinity the voters^of your district are suffering from.^So you slaves must not quit working^for your masters it would einbarass^them; the dividends must be paid^and the sweet ^Cholly^ boys who^strut the promenades of the summer^resorts must have the proceeds of^your labor to keep them in idleness;^hence the injunction.
InKansas the Santa Fe company^has gone on strike and the employ^^ees are locked out. There is said^to be 10,000 men thrown out of em^^ployment. Did you ever hear of^an injunction against a railroad^company for locking out its em^^ployees^ ^not on yonr tin type^ the^captaiM of industry, see to the se^lection of men for the judgeship and^other important offices in both the^democrat and repablicaa parties'particular plan will be adopted by^( ^iisequently can depend on them ' the farmers under Socialism to better^\n hen in need.

Twodetachments left the train,^one of 16 men moved toward the^depot, and the other of 6 men ad^vanced toward the town. The ene^^my consisting of one man, named^Flohr retired at a rapi^t pace too the^town; both detachments gave chase^firing at the retreating man, who^reached cover of friendly buildings^and escaped. The soldiers frustrat^^ed in their attempt to kill the enemy^vented their rage in threats and dili^^gently searched the town, for the^fugitive, who could not be found;^after searching for half an hour the^soldiers were recalled and the mili^tary train went on to Feung Weng^Chang. You say. Oh! no, to Tellur-^ide. This skirmish was not fought^between the armed legions of war^^ring nations, it was a conflict in the^American class war raging in Colo^^rado with a somewhat fiercer flame^than in any other state. But let no^man'think, that if the conditions^seemed to demand such brutality by^the hired thugs of our captains of^industry, that we in Montana, would^not experience similar outrages.^Capitalism is nearing the end, and^like the royalists of the 17th cen^^tury, hesitates at no crime that offers^it the faintest hope, of suppressing^the desire for industrial liberty which^is seeking expression through the^working class today.
TheDenver Post repeats the ex^^planation of the would be murderer^Kenly, why he did not shoot Flohr,^the deported unionist. He said:^my eyes have been bothering me^lately or I would have got that man.^You can bet I and every other^trooper shot to kill, and am sorry^we missed him.^ Yet, school child^^ren are taught to sing ^My Country^'Tis of Thee;^ and to love the free^(^) institutions of the greatest re^^public, etc. We should love them,^aye, love them well enough to wipe^out of existence this hideous system^of capitalistic exploitation, which is^the cause of every_ outrage against^the liberty of the citizen in the Unit^^ed States. It is hard to believe that^in this country men should saffer^such treatment. Laboring men are^shot and bayoneted, driven from^their homes, prevented by injunc^^tions from speaking to fellow work^^men, chained to telegraph poles,^because they refnse to scab; their^women have been insulted and out^^raged by citizens alliance thugs,^trigged out in military garb, all this^in free America. The republican^and democratic press with very few^exceptions uphold this condition,^representing as they do the two^wings of capitalism, they dare not^criticise. A few democratic journals^raise a wail about Peabody and^strive to make political capital out^of the sufferings of the laborer, but^they do not dare to point out that^Peabody is but the tool, and that^just as efficient democratic tools^have been found to carry out the^plans of the capitalists. Stuenburg^of Idaho was such a man, and the^democratic governors of several^southern states have used their pow^^er and office just as Peabody is do^^ing to crucify labor; in Colorado^the unions are offering a stronger^resistance than in any other strike,^hence the length capitalism is forc^^ed to go in its efforts to exterminate^effective unionism.
TheColorado struggle has record^^ed in letters of fire and baptized in^human blood, the lesson labor must^learn before it can be free. It may^be, but days, it may be months,^and possibly years, before the lesson^is assimilated, but understood it^must and will be that as human la^^bor applied to the earth, and its^products is the source of all wealth,^and as wealth by right belongs^to him who created it, therefore^the interests of the people can^not be the interests of the little^clique of millionaires who through^the working of unjust laws rob^labor of its product. When this^lesson is learned the majority will^enlist under the rnddy banner of the^working class and voting as they^strike free humanity from thr fonl^and slimy anaconda of capitalism.

Two dollars per day^without board is generally paid,^only four men receiving three doll^^ars and ten cents a day. What the^1 o cents isfor, no one has deciphered.^Possibly Rockerfeller is following^the national trait, characteristic of^his countrymen, who marks hii^^goods for forty nine cents. At any^rate his satellites have shown a mas^^ter mind in selecting his wage slaves^there. They are Austrians. Aside^from the Montana Club building in^Helena, there is no work in the^building trades line here, nor will^there be until the fall.

Theliberal art building is built^of stall. Its contract price was^$475,^ooo and its builder the Keller-^manti contracting company. Al^^though following the prevailing style^of architecture of the exposition the^renaissance it adheres very closely^to classic lines. The long facade,^especially, shows a magnificent en^^trance, almost pure cc-inthian.^Here is what the architects, Harnett,^Haynes ^ Harnett, say of their^structure:
Thestyle of the architecture is^a severe treatment of the French^renaissance for the enterior facades.^In fact, the treatment embodies^rather a feeling of the classic than of^the renaissance. It has been the^endeavor of the architects to depend^largely on sculpture in the decora^^tion of the building, refraining from^the over use of stereotyped architec^^tural ornamentation. The main^facade is 750 feet long and is^made interesting by the use of a^central pavilion and of two end^pavilions. The center pavilion is^bought somewhat above the connect^^ing buildings which unite it with the^pavilions on either side. Kach of^the three pavilions, on the fronts^forms an elegant entrance to the^building.
Onthe main facade are three^entrances and on the 525 foot facades^are two entrances, one in each of^the ends pavilions. The main en^^trance is in form of a hemi-cycle^with circular colonnades. The ceil^^ing of this hemi-cycle is frescoed on^a background of old gold. The^decorations and ornaments are^brought out in relief. In the log^^gias of the building are mural fres^^coes on old gold backgrounds, which^add subdued color to the picture.,,^It was in this building that the^Saengerfest of the North American^Saengerbund last June was held.
