minority of their compnuions. it is inter
ctling to note that the I. W. V. has been
rcpndinted by the American Federation

of inflammatory speeches there was n
rush of self-sacrificing I W. W. mem
bers to th towns where trouble vr.i?
afoot, and these promptly got themselves
"In it tnip," I asked the organizer of
the I. W. W. camp, "that you pay 530
r nionh to every man wbo goe to jail?"
'Yes." he said. "TheyarP servin,. the
general good, and for every man who
goes to jail thpre are a thonsand con
verts." I stowed him a handbill advocating a
three hour day,
"Xou know ihnt is impojflible," . said
"A doctor couldn't practise hh profewion
en that schedule a single day. Neither
could a nnrse nor a teacher nor a railroad
conductor live on those work hours. You
conld not ran your own home with yoirr
wife for partner one day on that scheme.
She would rise at six, well ay, and quit
at nine. How about dinner 'and atipper
and bedtime for the kiddies?"
"To," he said, "we couldn't run life on

striking for bigger pay. We Rre' not
striking for Iocs! government. We nse
these as ocesrion arise. We are strik

We are striking to educate all workers
to their power. When they realize that
the world would stop if they stopped work
it means the great general strike. It in
Tht meetings In the camp were secret
and. Indeed, moot of the orgnni7.ition and
workings of the I. W. W. Is se'eret. They
.maintain a sort of secret service which I
aeeasralate a vast amount of knowledge, '
and often is nble to inform the governing
,'nidy of the intentions of (he capitalists

A bcis cursi-d onf of th; men wlio was

That is the way labor is going to fight in

Wheu I remarked tl at h'sn oqe idea
seemed lo he to strike, no matter what
thecxttsc. he said:-
; "It 1. We hiupt continually strike, if'
Jberc were no grievances, no wrongs. wel

Ten years ago 'arbitration' and contract' r
meant something to the labor world So ji
did the ballot; but we have been fools '
long enough What have contract, and
arbitration, and ballot done for in? Wt j
spurn (he wonlsl Oce it awsilvcn.s to its J J
power, labor is In n position to dictnte, f

I "You will say the accumulation of j
wealth means that some person hns savM 5
out of his living wage. Fie has worked (
sixteen hours a day when others worked I Lc
only eight, and his capital represents
years of that excess work nnd excess sav- i
ing Ton will say that his profits, which V i
he takes while he gives us only Jiving ;&
i wage are nothing more tjan componnd H
interest on arrears and years and accn-
Jmulations of excess work.
"And tha' fs exactly so. That represents
the capital systpm, and that is what w are g
fighting. Tt isn't shorter hours or better ijv
j pay. or this or that, we are fighting for. t g
jir is to tranifer power from the capital ( tJ
side of the line to the labor side of the line. ' )
Wben that is accomplished we will eliral- ,
natP feudalism. Xo man will be allowed j if
to work fnr more than his living. There '
will be no unearned increment, no profits '
to recreate a capital system." ' gf
It was suggested that some men might f '
really enjoy work and not hate it as tbo i' b
I. W. W. seems to. When asked what : ft
would he done in a crm like this th? k:
camp leader said: j- y'
"We would forcibly prevent ir. "; -
"Present conditions are the resnit of ;
our political stupidity. We propose to j J
remedy all thi6. and the working clsrt j
