high seas whose might cannot longer be discounted
without comment. On the other hand British ton

The leading bourgeoisie journals in England are
in actual panic over the sudden appearance of a
new trade rival. Some capitalists doubting the abil
ity of Great Britain to defeat this new rival are
urging collaboration with American Plutoci'acy by
a union of all Anglo-Saxon Powers. They are, how
ever, in a. small minority. The influential war
mongers therefore urge more ships, more guns,
more defense for aggression against any possible
enemies in the future. They fail to see why they
should bow to the growing power of the American
Bourgeoisie without a stiff fight, especially so
when they the capitalists never do the actual
fighting. If issuing a call for "King & Country"
will bring enough Henry Dubs to fight their dirty
battles then why give up to America or why
even collaborate? So the flames of war are being
fanned not only in Great Britain but in this
coutry as well. War bloody war is the very
source and fountain of Capitalist Society. To talk
of eliminating war under the Capitalist System
is to throw dust in the eyes of the worker. War is
indissolubly a part and parcel of Production for
Profit. The capitalist knows no country, has no
home or is capable of having one. His insatiable
lust, his eternal greed, his unlimitted appetite for
exploitation in order to bring more dollars into his
realms, this is the only tenet of the capitalist.
The workers have nothing to gain and all to
lose. A war between America and Great Britain
will mean destruction of millions of proletarians,
stai-vation, disease in still more aggravated pro
portions that it is manifested in Europe today.
Workers of Africa and England, behold the trap
the master classes of both countries are laying for
you. They want you to-rush at each others throats
so that you may forget about the real enemy in
your midst. There is only one way the only
way of eliminating forever the cures that is war.
There is only one way of destroying the miserable
inhuman and beastly conditions under which the
workers of all countries are forced to exist That,
way is the destruction of the capitalist system of
production for profit and the erection of Com
munistic Production for USE. The road has al
ready been blazed by the heroic example of the
On "Aiding Russia"
Chicago, Nov. 11, 1920.
Editor The Toiler:
A few days ago I sent the following letter to the
Chicago Daily Tribune. As it has not yet been
printed, and as Ao not expect them to print it, I
am sending a & py of it to you and ask you to do
so. The letter follows:
"November 7th, 1920.
Chicago Daily Tribune:
Gentlemen: On this day of the third anniver
sary of the Russian Revolution, please convey
through your foreign correspondents my thanks
and gratitude as a citizen of Soviet Russia to the
governments of France and England and their
all-lies for the aid they have given within these
three years to the counter-revolutionary generals
Kolchak, Denikin, Udenich, Wrangel and other
First of all these aids and attempts to crush So
viet Russia were the main factors which helped to
create a strong revolutionary victorious Red
Army. In the second place, the amunitions and
uniforms sent to these generals came in very
handy in. due time, and the Soviet Government
made very good use of them. Besides direct aid to
Soviet Russia these attempts opened the eyes of
the workers of the world to the real causes of the
war and the brand of democracy it was fought for.
Kindly send my thanks also to the American
Red Cross which is opening campaign now to aid
suffering humanity. According to your corres
pendent Larry Rue (oct. 18, 1920) this organ
ization helped the all-Russian ruler, Baron Wrangel
with supplies to the sum of $2,000,000 besides
500,000 tons of supplies weekly. As all the supplies
sent to this champion of democracy has fallen into
the hands of the Soviet forces I think that the
supplies of the American Red Cross are also in-'
eluded. Anyhow with such a glorious record I be
lieve the Red Cross will le able to collect other
millions of dollars and thousands of new members
for the aid of suffering humanity.
Thanking you in advance,
M. A. STOLAR."
