Organized labor and its possibilities
is a subject that has been discussed
for many years, and yet, notwith
standing the exhaustive manner in
which it has been treated, we are
forced to acknowledge that it is a
topic which is ever ancient and al
The industrial system is regulated
by trade, therefore the labor unions
must always be in a position to* cope
with the exigencies created thereby.
The country set apart special days
for the purpose of perpetuating the
fame and glory of its heroes and the
celebration of its independence-and
rightly so. In a like manper the toil
ing millions of our land will celebrate
the festival of Labor Day in a man
her that will far surpass in grandeur
and enjoyment all previous demon
strations, for never in the history of
the labor world has there been a
more crucial period for the workers
and their supporters than the one
through which they are now passing.
The distinguishing feature of la
bor organization is its educational
achievements, for the people are
taught in the meetings that they
are something more than human en
gines for extracting gold from one
part of the community and transfer
ing it to the pockets of the other.
They are taught to help all mankind
and to estimate what can be done in
the future for all classes.
The countless thousands who march
on Labor Day should be reminded
that in order to advance they must
learn the real lesson of unionism. It
is a matter of decided moment both
to those who direct great undertak
ings and to those who take' part in
therfi that there shall be a general
and constant sense of good will and
an activity that will anticipate and
prevent all unnecessary failure.
Let us march together, associate
with one another and all join in mak
ing Labor Day a joyful one.
THERE IS NO ESCAPE.
The protests against receiving our
spiritual guidance from the republi
can party falls on barren soil; the
flow of superhuman goodness and
charity is unimpeded. And at this
season we not only hear the pious
family sermons, but highly colored
descriptions of how the G. O. P. will
heap the dinner pails with all sorts
of good things. It would be well for
them in starting the campaign to se
lect their sermon from First Timothy
6:10: "For the love of money is the
root of all kinds of evil; which some
reaching after have been led astray
from the faith and have pierced them
selves through with many sorrows."
The people have become accustomed
to see the republicans don their sol
emn visage in campaign years, and
-tell the youth of our honest land the
dangers of adoring wealth and the
horrors of pushing our own gain to
the cost of our fellow man. Tell
them also how contemptible a sin is
hypocrisy,. and warn them. ner. to.
takvuufaittr and cruelsateaga
theVteler; never to, corrupt legisla
tures; never to wring needless. mill
ions from the necessities of the poor,
and, to go one step farther, explain
how beneath contempt it is, how sac
rilegious and mean, for a wage earner
to ask for representation in county,
state and national government.
A Great Program 'That All Will
Assist in Making a Success
of On Labor Day.
Major Martin Maginnis, one of the
early pioneers of Havre, and widely
known throughout the state as an in
teresting speaker whose heart is with
the labor interests, will be here to
take an important part in our Labor
Day celebration and give the main
address. Our local ministers will al
so speak from the standpoint of labor
and nothing but inclement weather
can prevent a successful and never-to
be-forgotten, labor event in Havre.
Elsewhere in this issue will be
found the line up of the procession as
far as the committee could arrange,
also the program of sports. While
each union and business place will
make a special effort to put an at
tractive float in the procession, the
Trades and Labor Assembly will en
deavor to outclass them all. Their
float will represent the delegates of
the different unions of Havre, and
forty little girls dressed in white,
each emblematic' of Trades and Labor
Assembly delegates will occupy apret
tily decorated float. We print the
names of the little misses that they
may be in readinesl when the time

The business men and individuals
have been more than liberal on this
occasion, and have gained the good
will and confidence of the working
army. Ample funds are on hand to
meet all the expense incurred and re
liable committees will see that every
obligation is strictly adhered to.

There are various constructions of
the word "Liberty." It applies to the
liberty of government and the liber
ty of person. Liberty of government
is founded upon justice and reason.
Liberty of person is founded upon law,
and personal liberty cannot infringe
upon the legal rights of others or of
the state. The anarchist takes the
extreme position that there should be
no law to hold the individual in
check. As a result of this most dan
gerous doctrine anarchists have assas
sinated three presidents of the Unit
ed States. Premeditated murder is
anarchy. • Premeditated or open vio
lation and defiance of any law is an
archy in a degree, according to the of
fense committed. In every such will
ful violation of the law the violator
seeks to trample upon and set at
naught the dignity of the state, in
whose protection he lives and claims
certain rights. The better citizen a
man is, the more he respects the law
of his country and the rights of others,
and the higher he stands in the esti
mation of the community. The law
states that "city or town printing,
must be given to the lowest bidder.
Has this law been violated?
