Devoted to the Interest
THE MAN FROM
FIRST SOCIALIST CONGRESS
MAN SPEAKS TO 2,000 PEO
PLE IN COLISEUM RINK
THROWS AN INTERESTING
SIDELIGHT ON WORK IN
Before an audience of two thousand
people who paid two-bits each to get
in. Congressman Victoi 1,. Berger -poke
for nearly two hours Sunday afternoon
in the Coliseum rink. It i- safe to say
that die big audience would gladly have
sal and listened to him two hours longer.
To the person who pictures a socialist
as a long-haired) vague-eyed dreamer
-pooling stereotyped phrases from Karl
Marx, Mr. Berger was a revelation. Mr.
Berger impressed his audience as being
nothing bul a plain, everyday sorl of
person »iih an inexhaustible fund of
humor and kindliness and a big -lore of
practical, common sense ideas. lie
studiously avoided scientific socialist ar
gument and confined lii- lime almost
I wholly to a recital id' hi- duties a- a
Congressman and hi- efforts in behalf of
labor. There was nothing bitter in his
jlarraignment of ihe old parties. He de
clared that tin' majority of ihe members
lof congress with whom he had come in
contact wei'e honest, conscientious men,
doing I lie best they knew how to do for
the count ry.
Mr. Berger ha- but lit He time for the
["direct actionist" or "revolutionary so
cialist," declaring that the socialist -tale
will come through an evolutionary pro
cess. He expressed hi- willingness to
support any measure introduced by re
publicans or democrats if thai measure
offered relief for the working c lass. He
]nailed one objection to the entire satis
faction of hi- audience, viz.. that social
ism would destroy individuality or make
impossible individual effort. To Mr.
Berger socialism means opening the gates
lof opportunity to every man and woman
to develop his or her individuality.
•Mr. Berger pleaded with the workers
to strengthen hi- hand iv congress by
-ending other socialists to work with
him. "There is so much to do," said
Mr. Berger, "and one man can do so
little. Gel busy with your ballots, you
people, and send more socialists to con
gress to help me out."
Victor L Berger, firsi socialist con
gressinnn, created a profound impression
among his Kverett auditors of all -hades
of polil leal belief.

Realizing that the time is no! far dis

annual payments. Two payments of

possible to pay off tin entire indebted

January 5, 1913 thereby cutting off one

There ought to be no trouble in rais
ing the $2,100 needed to clear the prop
erly. A moment's reflection will eon
vince anyone that the Labor Temple has
been the greatest asset the Kverett labor
movement has had. First lias l M the
matter of a nominal rental charged. The
unions have always had a home in which
there was no landlord to boost ihe rent
or tell them to move on a moment's
notice. That is noi the greatest benefit,
however, thai the Temple has brought
to the movement. The constant Inter
mingling of all the crafts under one roof
has hern the real secret of our success.
Every night in the week the reading
room i- filled with men representing
every industrial craft. Each man knows
his neighbor or soon becomes acquainted.
The various problems and perplexities
that confront one craft are freely dis
cussed with members of snother. The
result i- that the boys have a fairly
Igood understanding of conditions that
arise in all trades and il create- a bond,

was no place for a person with heart
trouble. The strain of thai twelve-inn
ing battle between the Smokestackers
and Marysville was terrific and when
Ihe winning run came over about I.oiio
fans were fit subjects for a lunacy com

It was a grand game, folks, viewed
from any angle, and was cram jam full
of excitement from the opening hymn
to the benedict ion. That little town of
Marysville has one grand ball team and
its members would rather beat the
Smokestackers than shake the hand of
William Jennings Bryan. From the
Lime the teams faced each oilier a! the
umpire's call we knew we were going

Clarice, it was a dandy.

' Duncan started for first and Wilson for
the plate. Ladd bluffed Jimmie back
to third and threw for ihe out at first.
Wilson started for home again and Gid

In the second, a marvelous fielding
stunt by Quigley at second robbed the

The sixth inning opened the scoring
and it was Marysville that did it. Wil

forced at second by Keppler. Quigley

horror of the crowd he let it gel away

BY NEW CITY CHARTER
PROMISE TO CARRY THE
PROVISIONS THROUGH THE
At the time out now city charter was
being drafted organized labor strongly
urged the incorporation of the section
abolishing the paid employment office
and substituting therefor a municipal
free office. Organized labor has no
apology In make for that act inn. We do
nol insinuate thai all employment men
are dishonest bul enough complaints
have ciinic in from men who have been
fleeced in the past few years to warrant
the abolition of the whole system of
paid employment agencies, Furthermore
the whole idea of compelling a man to
buy the chance to earn his living i- re
pugnnnl to our sense of what i
fair. The t\| i' men who largely fre
quent employment offices in search of
work are generally down on their hick
and can ill afford to -pare a dollar or
two to buy a job. It is much more hu
mane and in keeping with the newer
trend nf thought that after all we are
"our brother's keeper" to help the un
fortunate out of work through the mcdi
Itm of a municipal office than to turn
him over to the tender mercies of the
Now we are told that the paid employ
ment agent - of this city will not accept
the charter provision without a fight
hut will challenge in the court- the
■ iiy'- right to legislate their business
out of existence. It was to be expected
that they would take such action and
we arc entirely satisfied that they
should. We might just a- well know
how tin urts feed about the matter
now as later. It is bound to come up
sometime. The next legislature will he
asked to pass a law forbidding any man
or ajrency accepting a fee from an appli
cant for work as the price of furnishing
employment and a determined fight will
be made for it- pas-age. In the event
the law passes it i- certain that it will
have to run the gauntlet of the courts
and organized labor will certainly inter
pose no objection to an immediate te-t
of the principles involved in the charter
provision. Bring your suits.
The cry "class legislation" is no new
one to our cars. There was never a law
passed yet safeguarding the workers that
the parties hit did not yelp "class legis
lation" or whine about "being deprived
