Another Renegade
By H. E. Keas
One more labor magazine has heard
tbc golden call. "Western Railway
Journal," published monthly in los
Aageles by The Railway Men's Pub
lished Company, Inc., once a journal
of much promise in the labor world,
has gone definitely reactionary. This
magazine, of excellent typographical
appearance, enjoys a general circula
tion among railroad men of the west
ern states. Class-conscious railroad
workers in the western territory and
' elsewhere who are acquainted with
the past record of this magazine, es
pecially during the year 1918 and 1919,
will be bitterly disappointed wl.on
they contrast its present policy with
that of a short time ago.
Altho the magazine, was not, strict
ly speaking, a radical labor journal,
it formerly gave space to articles
trw.ting of the different phases of
the growing labor movement both here
and abroad, without fear or fa1 or.
Its policy was that of an "open
forua" for the railroad union mem
bership and the only restrictions as to
articles appearing in its pages were
that "all contributions must be signed
by the writer to insure publication.
Individual Contributor! are responsible
for their own articles. ' ' Under this
arrangement the magazine became in
fact, an open forum. Many first-rate
published in the east, fully covering
tho horrible crime, with the sugges
tion that could they not print the art
icle contributed by the writer, they
at least publish the cut and give tho
facts, using as much of either article
as was necessary to do this. The cut
and the article contributed by the
writer were returned to him, the edi
tor giving the excuse that he "could
not publish account too aggressive."
loo aggressive: When the entire
American labor movement was smart
ing with the hideousness of this
cold blooded crime against one of its
beloved leaders. I'ndaunted by the
rebuff, the writer, in a letter to one
of the associate editors of the journal,
tool: the chief editor to task. The as
sociate editor immediately placed the
matter before bis chief. Here is his
account o the affair. 1 quote his
letter in part:
" Yon said something! It was

our bin chief and sat down and told
aim to read and digest it. I thought it
would ruffle him, but it did not; he
acknowledged without hesitation that

and as he was under ohliun-
Q
tions to those who were behind the
paper, he did not want to take a
chance just now of getting us in bad
with an element that would be pleased
to make it interesting for our cause."
What a spineless policy for a pro
fessed labor paper. Labor paper in
deed !
Now, increasing number of the
railroad workers of the western stat
es and elsewhere will wonder as to
juRt who are "those behind tha
paper. " But they will not have to
wonder long. We find the answer in

most severe condemnation by th
liberal element of the countrv for the
recent brutal raids and deportations
Condemnation and allegations suported
by indisputable evidence which all
fairminded persons can not logically
question. But then, we go on a bit
further and here we find the reason
for the change of policy, for the ef
fusiona of venom, for the thottling of
labor's cause. Fat advertising con
tracts do not reconcile themselves
with fearless advocacy of labor's real
interests. As a naive acknowledgement
of their obligations to "those
behind the paper," why this support
is so freely given and why we may
expect to find many more editorials
of a reactionary character iu the
pages of this "labor" journal in its
future issues, the article is a gem. We

While Jack asd Collins were attend

Olive Anderson graduated from High
School at Auamoose, after which, she
was persuaded by her mother to take
a trip to Colorado, for her summer
vacatirn. Needless to say, the idea
was entirely agreeable to her, nor was
the reason for her willingness ob

The next group to leave the Move

mat none ot the subscriptions made in

heart of the steel district.
In the meantime, the bone of con
tention, the 90,000 word steel report
was effectually ' side-tracked. No in
terim report was, issued during the
crisis of the steel strike when' it
would have been effective. Now that
unionism in the steei industry has
b:en almost completely crushed, the
Committee promises to flood the
country with free copies of the full
report.
when the Industrial Relations Depart
ment of the InterchVch World Move
ment laid down tbc principle last
October that labor has the right to
bargain collectively and began its in
vestigation of the steel industry at
the time of the big strike, the In
terchurch ran into a suag. Ructions
began.
The first break which indicated
trouble below the surface came in
the last week in May when General
Assembly of the Presbyterian Church
withdrew from the Movement. The
reasons given out for the severance
were that the Movem-nt was spending
too much money' and using wastful
methods.
In reality, Banquo's ghost, the
steel investigation, was present at the
feast. Mcitland Alexander, a minister
in the fashionable section of Pittsburgh
trying to hide the embarrassing-spectre

fully guarded from her husband. Al
tho it must be said to hig credit that
he suspected something of this order,
an,d frankly told Olive what he con
sidered the mother's plan to be.
One evening while working in his
office, with Olive helping him file
some letters, he stopped suddenly, and
said, as he found one of Jack's let
ters in the unopened mail, "You must
understand me Olive, that I do not
approve of your correspondence with
that young fellow, for the very gopd
reason, that I know nothing' about
him. But that is not saying that I
know all the decent and desirable
people in the world. He may be as
go3d as any man on earth. ' I know
he has more brains than the average.
He may be alright, and if he is, and
you love him I'll give you both a start.
And if he is not, and you are con
vinced that he can make you happy,
don't rush things, but bring him home,
and I will help you make him what
he ought to be. Your mother thinks
that I am afraid to let you go to
your uncle, that is not the case vou
meet him there. If he is the right sort,
he will treat you as you ought to be
treated, and I have confidence enough
in your natural ability, that I believe
no man on earth could get the best
of you. You know that your Dad will
heJp you in any thing you want and
hell let you be the judge of whether
it is good or bad. I have tried to
make your life for you, and failed.
Now I am going ta try to help you
make your own life, so that you will
win, and after all that is what
counts with me. Play fair with your
iau, Ullie and he will piny fair with
you. ' '
"So I think you had better go to
Colorado, and spend the summer run
ning around the hills. This fall you
ean enter the University there, and I
will come up and have a look as to
how you are making it." Then after
filling a pipe and causing it to de
scribe its customary circle before his
face from the corner of his mouth ho
added, "and when you get back into
school, dig into your books, and
forget those rotten papers you have
been reading. They are enough to
drive an average man crazy, let alone
a Tilly romantic girl."
At all of this, Olive smiled a, casual
good natured but not unapreciative
smile. "It is no use for us to argue
these questions, Daddy. We have
argued them often enough. In fact we

Tlu donates of the British Trade Unions lost no time
in protesting, in Budapest as well as in London, against the
active assistance of their irovernmont to tlit? worst deeds of lie
"White Terror.
They had been sufficiently warned by the experience of
the Italian Delegates, so that they did not expect any marvel
lous results from their jonrney. They would he content, they
intimated, if the impressive indictment collected within three
days in Vienna among the refugees from Hungary, among
people, part of whom still bear marks of tortures visibly on
their bodies might be shown by them but once to the autor
of the White Terror, Admiral Horthy, and to his protector,
the British Plenipotentiart Minister at Budapest, Mr. Efohler.
This man is to high degree personally responsible for all these
atrocities, chiefly perhaps by the report to his governmenl
about "the alleged White Terror4', which was mbmitted to
tho British Parliament and which should be read bv everv
worker in order to see by it how the diplomacy of haughty
capitalists may mock the sufferings of the working-class.
Today the delegates of the British Trade I'nions know
enough to give, in a counter-report, a due answer to this
master-hypocrite. This answer too mav claim the attention
of the workers of the world.
The delegation of British Lahor left Vienna yesterday for
England. They have seen most horrible things. Colonel Wedg
wood is soon to speak in Parliament, and all of them will
report to the L'dr Tarty and submit their executive a re
solution, which is going to be dealt with at the national
meeting of the Labor party at Scarborough on the 21st of
June. To this day the tortured Hungarian proletariat is look
ing forth with yearning urm.
On May 28th the London conference confirmed the re
solution of the Amsterdam office of the Trade Unions' Federa

White Terror and as a nivalis of fighting against this govern
