ROOSEVELT FRIEND OF LABOR
At a recent session of the executive
board of Knight- of Labor the follow
ing sensible resolutiotiB were passed :
Whereas, The newspaper report
that certain labor organizations and
their leaders are attempting to have
organized labor take up the fight of
the enemies of President Koosevelt.
because of his action in the dispute
existing in the government printing
office in Washington, and believing
the president the best friend organ
ized labor ever had in the white
house, and that the present move is a
political one in tbe interest of prom
inent republicans who "control some
few labor leaders'with a desire to at
tempt tbe defeat of the nomination of
President Roosevelt: therefore be it
Resolved, by the general 'executive
board of tbe order of tbe Knights of
Labor, incorporated. That the ac
tion taken at this time against Presi
dent Roosevelt is not in the interest
of organized labor, but a political
move that, if carried out, will disrupt
or lower organizations and injure the
members, and if the leaders attempt
any such action, the majority of the
members of all organizations, without
regard to their political opinions.
6hould tefuse to organize and repud
iate such leaders and their action: be
Resolved, That such action as i
contemplated against President Roan
velt is one of the many mistake." mil
errors made by organized labor, as
they seem inclined to ignore BBC
rights of others, create strikes and
made demands that are unreasonable,
relying not on the justice of their
contention or claims, but tbe aiiixUbl
of trouble and loss they can cause
others, ,'and to see what they secure
by depending on politicians and not
on the justice of their demands: and,
be it further
Resolved, That as Senator Hanua
of Ohio is said to be a great frieud of
organized labor and that he is also
considered a loyal supporter and
sincere friend of President Roosevelt,
we. therefore, suggest to both sides in
the present controversy existing in tbe
printing office that they refer the dis
pute to Senator Hanna for a decision.
UNITED VERDE DIVIDENDS.
The Los Augeles Mining Review re
ports that a dividend of ISSSjSfQ was
declared by the United Verde mining
company last Thursday, making tbe
third dividend of au equal amount for
the year. The paer in question adds
that when things get into smooth go
ing order again at the United Verde
dividends will not be conspicuous by
their absence. Wonder if this can be
the same United Verde company to
which the board of supervisors of this
county recently made a present
amounting to about $10,000 and which
the mouth piece aud apologists of said
jLioard said had been running at a big
loss last year? If it is that extra MC,
000 could have beeu taken from tbe
?C7.",000 dividend fund of the com
pany without being missed aud it
would bave beeu felt very beneficially
by this county. The above however
only goes to show that the excuses
offered for that $16,000 donation to
the company had no foundation in
fact, and were absolutely false. The
man who niade tbe assertion that tbe
United Verde company operated at a
loss last year is a fit subject for either
the lunatic asylum or the fool killer.
The same paper states that during
the previous twelve months, the com
lauy paid ten dividends of To cents
each, making a total iu dividends for
that year of 2. iVJ, 000. aud yet in the
face of such a record, our benevolent
board of supervisors reduced the as-se-e.
valuation of tin property from
$3,000,000 to a little over $1,000,000.
With a record of 2.250,000 a year iu
dividend.- the utter and absolute ab
surdity of placing a million dollar
valuation for the purposes of taxation
must le apparent to tbe most obtuse
mind. Then why in the name of good
business did thesuiervUors flim flam

Another packed audience greeted
Harry ML McKee last night at the
court house. Notwithstanding extra
seats had beeu provided every avail
able space was taken and the speaker
sustained the reputation he establish
ed at his first lecture of being the
most brilliant orator and ablest ex
ponent of socialism that has ever vis
ited our city. His personality is
striking, and bis uot over strong
physique seems burdened with an im
perious will and an intense nature.
He is an idealist, a dreamer, but with
a burning enthusiasm which cbarac
terizes his every utterance and carries
conviction to his hearers, because he
believes in realizing tbe highest ideals
and making the most beautiful dream
a living reality. He has a winning
manner which brings his audience in
to .-in pathetic mood and at once dis
arms antagonism. Never once has
be indulged iu abuse. He says he
has no fight witb men but witb a sys
tern that makes men hoggish and sel
fish and brutal. He said tbe cause of
the inequality of the present day is
the economic system the wage system
the method employed by tbe race in
producing and distributing wealth,
which permits the man or group of
men who are the best getters to get
tbe unlimited private ownership of
all the means by which tbe people
must live. Five per cent of the pop
ulation now own SO per cent of the
wealth and thus have a power that
enables them to levy tribute on every
man, womau, and child for the privi
lege of staying alive. He quoted sta
tistics to show that while with our
boasted labor saving machinery wage

au average of ?1000 annually, the la

Ownership gives power and the rea
son five per cent of the population

of our government, aud the terms on
which we may stay alive is because

and inaugurate a system based upon
the collective ownership by the entire
people of all the means of producing

aged by the producers, in order that
tbe more abundant wealth resulting
from co-operative industry may be
justly distributed to all who are will
ing to work, in proportion to the ser
vice rendered in ths process of pro
duction, anil this is socialism.
it is not "dividing up " We have
the collectively owned school house
but do not tbink of tearing dowu the
school house and dividing it up among
tbe citizens of the community. It is
collectively owned and collectively
used. But socialism does seek to
stop the "divide up" that is goiug on
uow. Every laborer produces au
average of $1000 worth of wealth and
receives an average of WH7 which
means a "divvy ' of over $500 apiece.
Again. Socialism -is not anarchy,
'out would establish a more harmon
ious, rational aud just method of pro
ducing and distributing wealth than
tbe chaotic, brutal method now in
use. The wage system the speaker
characterized as anarchy gone mad.
He says that even the strenuous
"Teddy" declares in his message that
the methods now employed are no
longer adequate to cope with the new
conditions resultiug from modern
machinery and concentration of capi
tal. The trust, he says, is a good thing,
tbe latest aud best modern machine
for producing aud distributing
wealth, but instead of it being owned
by a few and operated for their profit,
let it be owned try all the people and
operated to produce things for use and
at cost of production.
Modern capitalism, he said, had its
birth with the beginning of modern
machinery aud has grown baud in
hand with the machine. It was pos
sible for the mechanic a century ago,
by a few days labor to save enough to
provide himeslf with the simple tools
of tbat period and be au independent
producer. But when steam came iu
the tools began to grow to do tbe
work of ten or a hundred or a thou
sand men requiring an ever larger ag
gregation of capital to successfully
run them, hence tbe combination
known as co-partnership, next, the cor
poration then tbe trust and finally
the international trust control ing uot
only the home markets but tbe mar
kets of tbe world.
Now with the billion dollar trust
what possible alternative has the la
liorer but to organize? Combiuation
of capital is inevitable uuder the

was thus rendered, absolutely neces
So we have fhe trust aud the trades

as we maintain a system which per

bv man or group who are smart
enough to get it.
Labor by organization has beeu able
to secure a living wage, better coudi
tions and shorter hours, nut only a
share, and that the smallest share, of
the product of his toil has the laborer
been at le to secure, aud if every la
borer in the laud were organized in
the uniou of his craft and only a
small proportion are so organized
they could never secure more than a
share of tbe product siuce tbe system
compels the capitalist to make profits
aud in order to do this he must ex
It is good to organize in your un
ion. It is noble to stand together in
your struggle for better conditions,
but the strike at the shop door will
never solve the problem. Strike at
the ballot box by voting for the col
Bothro ow nership of the machinery of
production aud distribution. Own

trugclewill never cease so long as
one class the capitalist class com
prising but live pe. cent of tbe popu
lation own what the other class tbe
laboring class comprising the over
whelming majority of the people
must use in order to live.
The speaker unlike many political
speakers wbo appeal to tbe prejudices
of their bearers is logical and fair
appealing always to the reason of bis
audience. In his three addresses here
Mr. McKee has doue more than all
the talk and speechmaking of tbe past
to disarm antagonism and break down
prejudices. He has made the most
powerful and convincing argument for
socialism we bave ever beard. And
in the asnweriug of questions be dis
played a master hand, treating all
questioners with courtesy and making
many of the vexed points so clear tbat
one could not fail to understand and
be couvinced. If socialism bad more
such able champions Mr. McKee's pre
diction that socialism will obtain
within ten years would seem possible.
A local of over fifty members was
organized at the close of tbe address.

Mr. McKee leaves today for tbe

ager iu New York, advising him tbat
Mr. Hearst had practically abandoned
tbe trip to New Mexico and Arizona
which he had planned for this mouth,
on account of the lack of iuterest

a few to agree to take the trip and he

by the delegates from the two terri
tories. Col. Wilson fully coincided

Delegate Rodey to that effect. Mr.
Hearst intimated tbat a party might

AGENTS OF FAMOUS
McCoy Company Gets Carload
From Bartlctt Springs.
The F. Q. McCoy company, wbo are
agents for the celebrated Bartlett
Springs mineral water, bas just re
ceived a car load of this famous wa
ter, for tbe Prescott trade. Tbe wa
ter from these springs is not only
pleasant and refreshing but is health
giving as well and is very popular,
both as a beverage and for its medi
One of the springs contain a natural
gas witb which tbe water is charged
instead of by artificial gas and tbe
bottling of tbe water is very unique.
All tbe water is bottled at tbe spring
and to prevent tbe escape of the nat
ural gas that the water contains, it is
drawn from tbe bottom of tbe spring
through a block tin pipe and at no
time exposed to tbe air. Tbe bottles
are filled through a tube tbat extends
to the bottom of tbe bottle, and as
soon as tilled are at once hermetically
closed witb sterilized corks or seals;
the most hygienic process possible be
ing used iu all branches of the bot
tling department. Before packing,
each bottle is carefully examined and
all defective bottles emptied. This
guarnatees tbe Bartlett Water to be
bottled iu the mojt sanitary and scien
Bartlett Water is especially adapted
for exportation, being free from or
ganic matter, and contanis natural gas
that holds its mineral salts in perfect
solution; which also guarantees it to
keep for years without losing any of
its beneficial results. Some of tbe
diseases which are cured by the use of
this water are rheumatism, gout
gravel, salt rheum, skin diseases,
Bright's disease, diabetes, liver com
plaiut and stomach trouble. It bas a
mild laxative elf ect and antiseptic in
fluence on all he organs of digestion
and excietion. In this water nature
supplies tbe compounds wbicb carry
off all poisonous and waste products
through the kidneys, bowels and skin,
and at tbe same time supplies those
elements and salts which tbe body re
quires for building up uew tissue,
and thus by a gentle and sustained
action cures disease aud restores tbe
system to vigor and health.
It is also claimed tbat Bartlett Wa
ter removes all desire for alcohol in
persons who bave unfortunately de
veloped a taste for and acquired the
drinking habit. Kvery effect of the
alcoholic poison is corrected and tbe
system toned up and invigorated until
the necessity for a stimulant no longer
The persistent use of the water will
invariably tone up the system and
strengthen and benefit the person us
ing it. No mineral water has ever
been discovered which has received
the universally strong endorsement
from the medical fraternity which
this bas. Full directions for its use
accompanies tbe water, which can be
had from the F. G. McCoy company.
