The Next Big Thing.
Is Socialist Day on Sunday., October
13. Every local in America it expected
', to hold a propaganda meeting on that
1 date at which messages will be read
' from both Debs and Seidel and a collec
', tion taken for the national campaign
Reports from all parts of the country
,I indicate that this "Socialist Day" is a
• big idea fraught with tremendous propa
['. ganda value. Hundreds of locals arc
, preparing to make this the biggest day
1 of their local campaign, and there will
' be more socialist meetings held, more so
' ci:>li-t speeches made, and more socialist
' literature distributed on October 13 than
', on any single day in the history of the
■ socialist movement. No party or move
j ment has ever undertaken or accomp
lished anything of such magnitude or po
; litical significance.
If your local has not already made ar
rangements for a meeting on this date,
do so at once. Get a speaker if you
can; if not, do your own speaking. Tf
this is imposiblo hold a meeting any
way, read the party platform and the
letters from Debs and Seidel. The con
-1 sciousness that nearly six thousand oth
er locals are doing the same thing at
the same time, showing the solidarity,
organization and growth of the move
ment, should of itself create such an en
thusiasm as to insure the success of
■ your meeting.
Remember, the letters are coming—
letters from Gene and Emil, direct to
'your local, and to be read only on So-
I cialist -Day. Get busy NOW and ar
range for the meeting at which they will
be read—SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13.

The following eommunloatlon lias beo7i
received from Comrade Billquit:
"Please re-lttbmlt motion recently
made by me in connection with the
Lyceum lecture bureau, together with
comment which accompanied the same.
1 sincerely hope that thii time all the
members of the committee will vote on
It in the affirmative or the negative,
since the mat In- is of too great import
ance to be simply neglected as it was
on the first submission."
The re-iubmltted motion and com
ment are as follows:
"I move that a tub-committee of one
be chosen by the national executive com
mittee to make a thorough examination
of the qualification* of the Lyceum lec
turers on the approved list, assigned and
unassigned, and that lie report upon the
results of >uch examination with recota
mentations to the national executive
committee as expediently as possible.
The comrade to I"1 chosen as such sub
committee shall be authorized to secure
information about the qualifications of
such lecturers through personal inter
views and references, and authorized to
require the lecturers to submit to him
manuscripts or synopses of their pro
posed lectures; he shall be authorized to
incur all necessary expense for that pur
pose, Including traveling and hotel ex
penses, and shall be paid for his services
at the same rates at which lecturers on
the Lyceum course are paid.

shall act upon such report at a meeting

as well ai the mosi expensive undertak

impose upon several hundred locals a

for solid education and telling propa

CAN THE FARMER BECOME
By a Farmer.
(Editor's Note. —This is the second
article on the relation of the farmer to
the socialist party. The first, by Com
ade Emil Herman, is answered in the
article below. His reply will be wel
comed. The importance of the subject
leads the Commonwealth to welcome a
■ Without much propaganda effort on .
the part of socialist agitators, farmers
of the West and South are flocking into
the socialist camp in numbers great
enough to attract marked attention. .
This is not a fortuitous circumstance.
They are coming to socialism like other
workers because of strenuous economic
conditions in their particular environ
ment, the result of industrial develop
Fear is entertained by some socialists
that the farmers, being technically and
theoretically in the capitalist class, may
not be a desirable accession to the so
cialist movement. A knowledge of the
facts and conditions in the case ought to
dispel their fears.
After three or four years of intense
silence, and "masterly inactivity" in the
socialist movement, Comrade I'mil Her
man is again out in his favorite pastime
of persuading the farmers that they are
headed the wrong way; and in his clos
ing statement informs us that the real
poor farmers must give too close atten
tion to their (immediate) interests "to
permit of much revolutionary activity in
the socialist movement." Comrade Her
man is so anxious to discredit the farmer
that he contradicts the socialist philos
ophy and the facts of history. Witness
the Lawrence strike and all of he recent
strikes of unorganized labor —they have
been forced down to a point where they
would about as lief die as live, and that
is why they become revolutionists.
There are plenty of farmers in the
United States who are at the jumping
: off place —they are ready for the revo
lution and they are coming into the so
cialist movement because they know
that socialism spells revolution.
Every one who is competent to discii's
the farmer question knowg that they
work longer hours and receive in the
roundup a smaller per cent of the prod
uct of their labor than any other claa*
of workers. Hence the great problem
with farmer* is, anil bas been for years,
'"How to keep the boy and girl on the
I farm." And the fact that farmers are
looming to socialUm proves that they are
learning how to solve the problem, and
that they are not soft on THEORY.
While technically and theoretically the
farmer U a capitalist and an exploiter of
j labor and therefore theoretically belong*

So, while we may admit that farmers
are capitalists to please Comrade Her
man and to save time and space, the
fact remains incontrovertible that THE
FARMERS' CHILDREN ARE proletar
ians. When they grow up he cannot give
them each a farm or set them up in
business. He can only stand helplessly
by and see them march off into slavery
and sell themselves—their labor power—
wherever they can find a buyer. Even
Comrade Herman will concede that the
farmers' children are proletarians and
therefore they belong in the socialist
camp. So if the father and mother fol
low their children, my word is, receive
them with open arms and a "God bless
The farmer that farms, the farmer —
the landlord is a capitalist and he is
usually class conscious. But the farmer
who is farmed by the landlord must give
one-half of his crop to the landlord be
sides all of the expenses of producing
the crop, outside of his own labor. Now
we must not call that exploitation be
cause it would make some socialists red
headed, and they would want a whole
column in the Commonwealth to refute
that statement; but we can tell the truth
without fear of contradiction by saying
that the tenant farmer is knocked out
of about two-thirds of the product of his
labor in the first round.
Farmers are not exploited; to say that
they are would technically contradict
Karl Marx, but somehow or other they
are beaten out of a large per cent of
their labor. Socialism promises to all
workers the full product of their labor,
and farmers are learning that capitalism
and capitalist parties can not protect
their economic interests. That is why
they are becoming revolutionary social-
I have tried to be concise and brief,
and I have by no means exhausted the
subject. If Comrade Herman wants
more information, with permission of the
Commonwealth, I shall be pleased to ac

Shelton, Sept. 5, 1912.

Shelton on the evening of September 14.
The meeting was called to order by the
county secretary, who introduced Com
rade Reynolds as chairman. After a
short address the chairman introduced
Comrade W. 11. Kingery, candidate for
representative of the Thirty-first dis
trict, who delivered a very able lecture.
Dr. W. M. Beach, Comrade Kingpry's
opponent on the republican ticket, was
Invited to reply, but after roming to tho
platform declined to spesik.
Several Taooma comrades were present
and furnished some good music cam
Just before the close of the meeting
I)r. Beach announced that some time in
the near future he would tell the people
all about socialism as advocated by sci
entific socialists, but he did not extend
to the socialist party or Comrade King- ;
cry an invitation to reply; therefore, the
socialist party of Mason county is com
pelled to ask that the doctor nhow them

to wear a broad smile, for it looks like
