Any union shoi Id be very sure of its ground before asking the
central body to publicly endorse its st;m<l in a proposed strike or
boycott. Say what yon will, it is the attitude of the general public
I a union s grievance thai plays a prominent pari in making a!
strike or boycotl effective. Particularly bo in the case ol' a boycott
where tl c public is asked not to patronize a firm or indi\ idnal because'
of - me dispi I < thai has arisen, is this true. An ingeniously worded ex
planation ma\ serve for a time but not for long because the public
tits to ':!.• w who is righl and who is wrong in the controversy. It
will oft< it hap] en that a union will have a grievance with a firm for
.1 violation of its rules, and yet the violation he so technical that it is
nexl to impossible to explain it to the public. In such a ease is it
good policy to ask th" central body to endorse the boycott or for the
central l ody to granl sxich endorsement .' It is a matter open to «rrnve
argument. We understand perfectly how jealous each individual
'oiio ;.s hi' an] infringement of its rights. But it is better sometimes
for- tin- individual nnion to take a little the worst of it than to in*
i entire labor movement of a city in a controversy which
r.-iii be explained only semi-intelligently a id defended half-heartedly.
Even when a firm is removed from the unfair list—which occassional} 1
happens il i> not always proof positive thai the unions have won a
victory. In one t ase in this city a boycott existed for months against
a firm becai se one man in its employ failed to qualify for union
membership and the firm refused to let him go. After a long time
had elapsed the man in question joined the organization and the boy
cott was Lifted. A victory for the union! Yes, but that victory in
volved the Wrecking of an entire local union—an organization that
was ■ roi nd pieces while we were fighting over the one man. We
In'i abolish the "Unfair List" but we would be mighty careful
how we add to it. We would rather see organized labor concentrating
on 0! •• or two notoriously unfair firms on elean-cnt issues readily
nde stood and grasped by the public, than to have two or three score
firms and individuals advertised as "unfair"' and in the public's mind
only tl c haziest idea f what it is all about. So we repeat that local
unions should have a clinching argument to put before the public
foi tl sy ask the central body to put a firm or individual on its
" I Unfair List."
We are a very positive people. Things are bad or they are good.
V c like people or we don't like them and we say so in unmistakable
terms. We agree with our neighbors entirely or we disagree with
the most emphatically. When we work we work with such vigor
the world thinks we're crazy. When we play we play with a
tl at makes il a good deal like work. We hold to our po-
I al views with a bulldog tenacity that sets the whole country by

~'" v " the coi ntry from ruin and disaster if the stubborn opposition
; '' 1-1 i'Jit away their false gods and turn to our political remedy.
V c are just as positive in our religious beliefs. Believing in one God
and a Heaven after death for those who have led righteous lives on
earth, we •il p into several different creeds and every one of us
secretly believes that our own particular denomination offers the
real, bona fide shortcut to the heavenly gates. "The gold of our own
doctrine and a fellow heap of dust." Seemingly in every phase of
life il is "an irresistible force meetim; an immovable object." One
lers how, in this clash of wills, cross-fire of purposes, desires and
aims, aught comes out bur chaos. There is hidden somewhere some
greal secret balance wheel that holds steady the entire works. For
we are surely as a nation marking time for the world's people. We
are meeting mighty problems and slowly but surely settling them.
We overthrew chattel slavery and united a country' torn in two by
internal struggle. We are overthrowing another form of slavery that
we call industrial. Slowly, painfully vet every step forward, we are
ing toward the goal of human freedom iii its highest sense, the
day when opportunity to use to the fullest one's mental, physical and
spiritual powers shall dawn. You can fee] the leaven working in

will, [sn lit -rand and isn't it wonderful that through all this eon
ills, cross purposes, this jumbled, scrambled, hurried, wor

There was a time in the history of politics when it was the rule
to blackguard a candidate just before election. To attach his personal
character, his domestic relations, anything about him that could be
I worked into a scandal. ll' there was a skeleton ill his closet, even
though its joints creaked from old age. it was dragged out and pa
raded before the people. It was no trick at all to manufacture on
'short notice a perfectly good skeleton if close inspection of the closet
disclosed none there to hand. The older generation will remember
I the sweel scandal thai was stirred up around the luckless head of
Grover Cleveland upon the occasion of his first campaign for the
presidency. Happily that style of campaigning is nearly over ami
politics is on ;i cleaner basis as far as personalities are concerned. We
say "nearly" over for a faint echo of the old abominable style is heard
in the present gubernatorial campaign. The campaign against Hob
Hodge has developed largely into an attack upon his moral iitness to
bold office. Where [lodge should he expounding the principles of
the new political faith to which he has sworn allegiance and giving his
ideas of what he conceives th< di lies id' the office in be and how he
would meet them if elected, be has been forced to continually slop
and give answer io the pack snapping at his heels, li is not a digni
fied style of campaigning and Bob Hodge knows it. To the meanest
ami most scurrilous of the charges Hodge has refused t i make public
answer, and rightly so. Ihe burden of proof OUght to be on the ones
who are hurling the mud A few days ago a woman candidate, Mrs. |
Margaret IJoss, publicly made charges of the vilest nature against •
Hodge and asserted thai she had absolute proof of their truth. II is !
I plainly Mrs. Ross' public duty to produce the proofs with till possible
speed. If Hob Hodge is a n >ral degenerate the voters want to know
about it. And the proof should be beyond question—not the brand
described in the old doggerel, "said a friend of Brown's to 0 friend
of Jones' and Jones' friend said to me." We have bad quite enough
lof insinuation against the private life and morals of Hob Hodge. Some-
I body 01 yht to get out in the open with something definite or else all
hands shut up. If it is nothing but the old game of dirty politics—
and we believe it is-—the people are going to get nauseated with it
and answer the charges as the people invariably do answer eleventh
hour campaign rot—by piling up their ballots for the object of the
