With 'tii> issue "t the Journal, we
sever our connection therewith, having
disposed of the same, with the good will
and patronage to Messrs, J. F. Camp- 1
bell and E. P. Marsh, who will assume
full control thereof from this on. In;
retiring from the ownership and con
trol of the Journal, since its conseptionJ
six year-, ago. we take this means of
thanking our many friends and patrons
for their patronage and support and be
speak a continuance of the same, only,
in a more loyal manner, for our sue-]
cessors, who are too well and favorably
known among the patrons of the Jour
nal t" need any introduction at our
hands, further than to assure them thati
the paper will receive their undivided at
tention and be improved according to
the support it receives, which should be
liberal and unfaltering, if the course it
stand- for, is t" be espoused as it should
UNIONISM VS. POLITICS
(From Weekly Bulletin.)
We frequently hear some well mean
ing person -ay "The day of trade union
is past. It ha- reached the zenith of
its utility and can no longer be a fac
toi in industrial progress. What we
want nowadays i, political action."
This is not alone the mistaken idea of
the novice, for many advanced radicals
express the tame opinion. The Bulletin
believes action on the pan of the wage I
earning i- \er\ necessary, but not
so essential as economic act ion. in the sc
ouring and maintenance of good wages
and in tin upbuilding of trade and labor
Political action Should be entirely
apart from eeonotni ■ industrial ac
tion. Tin re are countries in which suc
cesses in the political movement have
l>een a detriment to the trade union
movement, and has manifested itseU to
the extent that trade unionism, which
was the Meruit ing station and educa
tional society for the political movement
in the industrial field through the trade
union movement were lost, and it was
soon found that while much was to bo
gained by political action, yet the trade
union movement must be kept up and
prosecuted with the same and even
greater than ever.
Leaders in Great Britain have noticed
the dangers from a neglect of the trade
union movement from polities] success,
and have sounded i note of warning.
The Australian labor leaders arc doing
the same. Since British and Australian
'labor leaders have had practical ex
perience, it would behoove the leaders
in America to profit by their exper*
the leading labor journal of thai coun
try, recently contained an editorial
along the line, entitled "Hack to tin
I Unions," n hich said, in part i
"We ate really devoting too much
time and attention to politics and ncg
nccting fields of action more vital to
•'The secretary of the Australian La
bor Federation, in his annual report to
tb,> affiliations, throws out a strong
suggest ion that we are. 'Back to the
Unions' should be our cry.
"Unionism and parliament ariantsm
must go together if each is to be ef
fective in its sphere. One must supple
ment and support the other. Neither
can attain the highest efficacy alone.
That the best results may be obtained
from each, a true balance must be pre
served between tfhem, a reciprocal equal
ity. a perfect interchange of service.
"It is in the growing preponderance
of political action that the danger lies.
This it is that render the warning nec
essary—'Back to the Unions.'"
Culture for everyday workingraen
! that would at one tiino have seemed
a far-fetched Idea. Perhaps il .till
seems a little extravagant to the mole
eyed souls who think that the grinding
round of his daily task is all that .
workingman can know or needs to know:
but it is pleasant to note that such is
imt the idea of the authorities of Ox
ford University, one of the oldest, most
scholarly, and incidentally the most ar
istocratic in existence.
The matter is brought to the public
attention by a report from a joint com
mittee of seven representatives of Ox
ford University, appointed by the vice
chancellor, and seven representatives of
the working classes, appointed by the
executive committee of the Workers'
Educational Association. This joint
was charged with the task
of determining whether any attempt to
provide university training and culture
for workingmen was desirable. The
committee has deliberated and advised
over tin- question for a year, and now
jwe have the result in the form of a re
; port in which the fourteen member, tin-
I animously recommend a .scheme by
. which it is hoped to put the desired cul
ture within the laboring man's reach.
' The scheme provides, firstly, for the
holding of "tutorial" classes in local
centres, to be conducted by university
men of high academic standing and
', teaching experience, but to be managed
largely by the working people them
selves; ami secondly, for admitting to
the university as full members all mem
bers of the "tutorial" classes who tire
I deemed fit for further university train-
There will be sneers for this project,
!of course. Perhaps the workers of
Great Britain will lose their interest in
it. Hut they have shown sufficient pro
gressiveness in other directions to war
rant the belief that they will make the
most of this educational opportunity,
which reflects credit on Oxford and is
a far advance on the university exten
sion courses now common in this coun
try. Some people seem to think that
culture is rightly the exclusive privilege
of the rich. It is doubtful, however, if
I the poor could possibly make a worse
j use of it than the sons of some rich
men who might be called to mind. The
best part of this English experiment is
the broad and helpful spirit of it.

EQUAL PAY FOR BOTH SEXES
A. ,1. MORROW.
Salaries of all civil service employes
I in Chicago are to be equalized and grades
lof service readjusted. Salaries will be
fixed in direct proportion to the value
:of the work performed -some increased
j and some lowered. The market price
jof labor in the commercial world will
be the standard by which city employes
will be paid. All men and women doing
the same kind of service, or service of
equal value, will receive the same sized
check. Mayor liussc and the council fi
nance committee have given their ap
! proval to the innovation.
