R SIDE OF THE STORY
'~tailroad's propaganda which has been distributed fast and
ri-g the present strike has had the effect of convincing i
that the railroads are right and that the men are all wrong ja
01 this connection it is well to remember that the big railroad t
otons have millions to spend for just such a purpose, a
o the workmen must spread their propaganda from mouth
a very slow process which may mean their defeat. Money r
thief of justice during these times when men are struggling i
very existence. It is a battle of the might of mone
s the justice to men.
We believe that all fair minded men in the employ of the
s would be willing to accept a reduction in wages. pro-r
-d that the reductil m in freight rates and passenger rates
also be so reduced to bring about lower cost of living. In
l ion the reductiion of the men's wages will be out ,f pro,
to the reduction of railroad rates. IEvery man is entitled
" lir compensation for his work and he will not get this from
edcoltporaton without a struggle.
The railroads are ready to show that they are not at present
a sufficient amount of money to pay a fair dividend to
stockholders. and we agree with them in this contention,
if they would cut out the thousands of the drones who draw
onable salaries just because they are a son, brother, uncle,
> or father of a railroad president, they would he able,
t y to pay a fair dividend on their stock but would be able
FF their workmen a liveable wage.
.Every era of prosperity throughout the world goes hand in
al with high wages. "High wages and good times, low wages
tlpaic," is a true saying that has often been proved.
It is to be regretted that at this time, the other brotherhoods
irkad men are unable to help the present situation except in
,gral sense, a united brotherhood today would bring to a final
the real truth of the claims of the railroads that they are
caking ends meet.

' GIRLS JOIN MORALITY LEAGUE.
a The Morality League in the past
few weeks has been flooding the
malls with applications to the fair
sex. Three of them have been re
turned properly filled and answered,
It but we expect to receive many more
y in the next few days said John Curry,
y secretary of the league.
The applicants are: Helen Estop
ir Inal, Dionese Vitter, and Norma
* Baker, who are the first girls to
a come forward in our fight for public
' decency. They all agree that the
present dance has passed the dis
graceful stage, and so they call upon
1 the other good girls of the com
d, munity to come forward and help rid
d Algiers of indecent dancing.
*, When informed that these girls had
id tendered applications to the Morality
id League, L. J. Schroder, President
** said, "The girlhood of Algiers has at
last come to a period of realization
They have at last seen the things
that we have been picturing to them

Ia things that are depriving our youth
id of the pleasures of childhood, and
d- that is the indecent, immodest,
e. vicious, vulgar dances.
A Algiers never in its history lacked
B to support a movement that was for
h, the benefit of its future men and
Kt women, and to-day it is found rising
0 as in the past against a vice that is
