It has boon two months since JUS*
'■■' TICK protnlMed to produce, the evi
dence that Billy Sunday was a thief. j
Now Is tho time for the public to have,
the proof. Ou next Sunday Dill Sun
day will collect thousands ot dollars
on the strength ot the claim that he i«!
an honest man trying to do good. It
we pro\o from his own words and defi- j
nition, as well as by the definitions of'
■ recognized authorities that he is abso
lutely and unquestionably « thi(>f, then
•I we have proven our claim and oven
the religious people are foolish to
spend one cent in contributions to thin
prince of gratters, who by practically
• blackmailing prominent citizens, getfl
■' gifts ot money, clothes, furniture, flow.
' en, etc Of all the gratters iiit» world
has ever seen this man is more versa
tile, unscrupulous, cowardly and trlcVy
! in his methods than any of his Ilk. In i
• the definition ot a thief given by
; Blackstone, the distinction is made be
tween a -robber" and a "thief." Tho 1

ECHOES FROM THE RECENT
j v tlu> Sllvnup. pQbool tlecMon the
I vote wnn no overwhelmingly again i
the Socialist candidate for director,
thai Hi.' newly elected director was
at a loss to know why he had rocolved |
such n. decisive majority. In previous,
>, an the total vote ranged from nine
to fifteen or thereabouts. This ■'■■"'
the vote was 84, of which Mr. Ham-
I m«, the non-Socialist, received 73.
' An all of mystory pervaded the nt-i
jtuoßphcre. Did this largo vote mean
an undefined fear that tho eleven Bo
I cialists in the district might have
elected another Socialist to the school
board! or did it mean that Comrades
, Mr. and Mrs. .i M. Baiter, who nio two j
jof the three teachers in the school,
[were to be let out?
j Never In the history of the Silvnnn
school, not even when the renowned
Socialist persecutor, Mrs. Lints Jones
was its principal, did the school run
BO harmoniously as this year. Tito I
pupils seem to bo electrified with an
enthusiasm for school work and nn
unsatiablo appetite for knowledge of
the execitlng, throbbing, niodren, sci
entific world and its marvelous pro
gress in which they must soon become j
vital factors. An Ideal sentiment of
sympahty, love and respect exists be- ]
tween teachers and pupils.
Socialist Teachers Not Wanted.
The dark lantern, secret caucus bri
gade said the Salters must go.
The pupils circulated a petition
among themselves to he presented to
the board asking that the Salters be
retained. Every one expressed a
willingness to sign It, but some said ,
they did not dare. Several pupils
openly defied their parents and signed
Some of the more outspoken parents
pointed out the severe loss the district
would suffer were the Salters not to be
returned. In order to ascertain the
•will of the majority on this matter,
Mr. Hammerly called a meeting of the
parents to discuss and present reasons
why Mr. Salter should not be retained
All but two of the parents in most j
emphatic terms expressed themselves ;
in favor of Mr. Salter's retention.
One said that the spoils system j
ought to be applied to the school, or j
in other words, as the Socialists lost i
out in the election the Socialist teach- j
ers should go. He had no fault to
find with them as teachers nor could !
he get any word of complaint from nil
children. The most, serious charges
were that Mr. Salter had said there
was no God; that the flag was a dirty
rag: that George Washington was '
aided in his campaigns by his adver
sary, Lord Howe., and that the sol
diers at Calumet and Colorado are but
tools of the mine owners. Also as
a general objection that too much ;
stress was placed on the news of the
day, especially that relating to strikes.
Many of the parents failed to come to |
the meeting. Mr. Hammerly said he
took that as evidence that they were
opposed to Mr. Salter. In order to
dispel any doubt on the matter a pc-
It.ition has been circulated among the
parents asking the board to re-employ
its present teachers another year.
This petition has received a majority
of the parent's aignatures. The op-1
position said on the floor o£ the meet-1
ing that all the; year they had com
plaint* regarding the teaching of Mr.

Would Make Strikers Deputies.
Wo had a splendid example of the
| effectiveness of political action a short
time ago in Crawford county, Kansas.
Thero the workers elected the entire
Socialist ticket, including the sheriff.
The telegraph operators threatened to
go on strike and the railroad company
wanted protection. They went to
Sheriff Turkington and put their de
mand for protection up to him. He
told them that they were entitled to
protection and he would see that they
got it; that he would make every
striker a deputy sheriff. How differ
jent from Tuerfano and Las Animas
'counties! In Colorado we have our

\ Kansas, wo havo one of our own men.
lit didn't cost any more to the workers
i to elect Turkington than it did to elect
JFarr and Grisham. In fact, it didn't
cost as much. Wo are paying an aw
iful price for having elected Farr and
Grisham and Ammons —our friends.
Let us learn by these bitter and
Socialism does not consist In vio
lently seizing upon the property of the
rich and sharing it out amongst the
poor. Socialists do not propose by a
single act of Parliament, or by a sud
iden revolution, to put all men on an
equality and compel them to remain
I so. Socialism is not a wild dream of
a happy land where the applies will
drop off the trees into our open
mouths, the fish to come out of the
rivers and fry themselves for dinner,
and the looms to turn out ready-made
suits with gold buttons, without coal
ing the engine. Neither is it a dream
of a nation of stained-glass angels
who never say damn, who love their
neighbors better than themselves, and
who never need work unless they wish
to. No. Socialism is none of these
things. It is a scientific scheme of
government, entirely wise, just and
practical.—Robert Blatchford, In Mer
