GOVERNMENT BY GUNMEN
By ARTHUR LE SUEUR
It looks to the writer today as
though the National Association of
. Manufacturers has inaugurated j a
reign of terror ail over the United
j States for the purpose of goading the
workers to open revolt and to retalia
i tion in the form of violence for the
purpose of wiping organized labor,
whether in the political or industrial
; field, off the map. The officials elect
ied for the purpose of enforcing the
' law might as well be dead, for all the
protection that they afford working
men and women. Violence as a labor
tactic has long since been discarded,
but is now the weapon of the capi
talist class, backed by the National
Guard, and the authorities of the
state and nation. .
The aim of capitalists seems to be
to goad the workers to a general and
open resort to violence in retaliation
for the murders, and worse, of the
thugs and gunmen, but should they
succeed in doing so, it would put back
the labor movement not less than fifty
Blood would flow like water; army
and national guard, with machine
guns, flying machines, with bombs to
drop behind the barricades, would be
a few of the weapons at once put to
use. Workingmen, be not deceived;
any resort to violence will end at this
time in your utter destruction. These
are the reasons: The government of
I the United States today is engaged
through the department of agricul
ture, in a desperate endeavor to satis
fy the farmers, through the establish
ment of credit bureaus, etc., so as to
keep them satisfied, and to hide from
them the fact of the identity of their
interest with yours. Without the sym
pathy and aid of the farmers you will
never win your emancipation from the
hell of wage slavery, and the capital
ist class know it. They are trying to
put you in the wrong before the farm
ers and utterly destroy your activities
before the farmers can be educated to
the fact that your interests are iden
tical with theirs.
If they can keep the farmers quiet,
while they destroy you, they will win.
If you fall for their game of resorting
to violence they will destroy you and
your organizations before the farmers
can be put wise to their game. The
capitalist class must keep the farmers
ignorant of the facts while they do it,
for the farming class of the United
States, if it were united and organ
ized, is the dominant economic factor.
The shortage of ammunition in Rus
sia must be making the poor fellows
at the front regret all those bombs
they used to waste so lavishly on the
Czar. —Boston Transcript.

NEWS FROM OUTLOOK
Outlook Wash., June 13, 1915.
Editor Washington Socialist:
I am enclosing check for $2.00 to
renew my subs, for one year and a
dollar for the printing plant fund.
I was in attendance at the State
Grange sessions at Centralia and was
much pleased at the radical resolu
tions adopted and radical speeches of
some members. Many Socialist but
tons were worn by delegates. In fact
farmer Socialists seem more apt to
show their colors in a crowd than
wage workers. The Farmers' union
meeting at Spokane last winter also
made a good showing of Socialists. 1
attended the meeting of Local Cen
tralia Sunday evening, but alas! not
enough for a quorum turned out. We
can beat them at Outlook, a village
of about 100 people with a smaller
farming community. I understand
that Centralia has 1,000 population.
It was evident to me why such con
ditions exist. Some of the comrades
present were quibblers on tactics and
In view of the Austrians' assertions,
made when they lost Premysl, that
the city was of little importance, any
way, the Teutons seem to have gone to
undue trouble to get it back again.—

Dear Comrades: Kitsap and King
counties are launching an experiment
In efficient propaganda that will need
the hearty co-operation of every So
cialist within our borders to achieve
the success It merits. It is the First
Annual Encampment of the Socialists
and sympathizers of Western Wash
ington at Olalla, near the southern
border of Kitsap comity on the West
Passage around Vashon Island, be
tween Tacoma and Seattle.
The spot selected—the farm of com
rade W. E. Wesferman, adjoining the
boat landing; an Ideal picnic place.
An orchard, gently sloping to tide
water with some virgin forest back
ground. As romantic as youthful
hearts in love with nature and each
other could desire.
The grounds face the beach where
clams can he secured In abundance,

bake on the eve of July 4, will be

constructed just in the forest edge,
where "tripping the hlght fantastic

so inclined. An orchestra of five
pieces will be chartered for the en

Indulged In at regular Intervals dur
ing daytime as well as evenings.
An old time "chicken dinner"—
your mother used to make, will be
served by the comrades on Sunday
and Monday. Substantial refreshments
will be served all comers at reasonable
rates, at all times during the encamp

p. m. Olalla will strive to retain
their erstwhile and present honors
against Vashon Island on Saturday,
July 3rd. Bremerton Navy on Sun
day, July 4th; Springfield (Pierce
Co.) on Monday, July sth.
Many other sports and games and
feats of strength and skill will be in
terspersed between lectures from sev
eral of the best propaganda speakers
of the Socialist movement.
Mary L. Geffs, of whom splendid re
ports come from all sources, will be
the opening speaker from 7 to 9
o'clock p. m., on July 3rd.
Emil Herman, now making an or
ganizing tour of Kitsap county, will
deliver a splendid effort from 3:30 to
5:30 p. m. on July 4th. A symposium,
short talks a few minutes each free
for all will be the agreeable feature
from 10 a. m. to 12 of the same day.
The evening oration will be given by
that thrilling propagandist, comrade
Kate Sadler, our national committee
Comrade Carl Ulonska, the most ef
ficient organizer, orator and county
secretary of Snohomish county, will
address the encampment from 10 a.
m. to 12 noon on Monday, the sth.
Comrade Glenn Hoover, of the
Herald staff, closes with his best ef
fort, from 3:30 to 5:30 in the after
The sports and games interspersed
between talks, etc., will give splendid
zest and afford diversion from too
much intellectuality. Questions about
and discussions of all addresses will
be in order, to bring to the surface all
salient points and how best to apply
the helpful suggestions announced.
It is hoped that every Socialist and
sympathizer, together with many of
our political opponents may be pres
ent during the entire session.
The profits, if any, are to be divided
between the King and. Kitsap county'
organizations, and as we have several!
annoying, down-dragging debts to 11-i
quidate, let us hope that the amount
may exceed our most sanguine expec
tations. Each should "add their mite,"
that we may make our little island
like county shine as the best in Wash
Pierce and Snohomish counties will!
send large excursions, doubtless to
swell the throng. It is also expected
that special excursions will be arrang
ed from Bremerton and Poulsbo and
vicinity for July 4 and 5, to carry all |
who wish to attend. i
So, comrades, if you have dimes orl
$$ to spend on "The Glorious Fourth,"
come to Olalla-, and spend every cent
of It in the Comradeship Circle, where
every penny of profit will go into the
propaganda purse to carry on the
cause of our class, to its successful
fruition in the Social Revolution.
It will be the grandest propaganda
effort Washington has ever witnessed.

YE PARTY COLYUM
We note that com. James Sudden,
the portly hammer wielder of the
State Ex. Committee, is touring the
northern part of the state. We are
glad that he has left these parts. He
Is too strenuous. He was forever in
sisting that we should do something
for Socialism. We are firmly con
vinced that nothing can be done and
prefer to sit around and philosophize.
Besides Sut is a pernicious agita
tor. We were employed in the same
office with him one summer and had
occasion to watch him in action. He
flitted gaily about here and there
among the high-stooled "clarks" and
the low-necked typewritresses drop
ping seeds of discontent as he went.
We frown upon this sort of thing.
We are a believer in legitimate agi
tating and are opposed to utilizing our
employer's time for such purposes.
Being somewhat chary of having our
feelings hurt we were forced to bear
the embarrassing spectacle in silence;
but now that he is gone we have no
hesitancy in saying what we think.
If the corns, can countenance his rude
tactics we would advise them to take
a day off and listen to this arch-dis
We have been much disturbed lately
by the persistence of our fin. secre-
tary in collecting dues. This is very
annoying. We much prefer to let our
dues lapse for six months or a year
utid then take out a new card. We
favor drastic action by the member
ship against over-zealous secretaries.
It get on our nerve to hear it called
the Socialistic party. We heard a
com. call it that the other day and we
were tempted to reach for an ax but

quired to read their constitutions once

OUR RULING CLASS
The most unmoral, the most corrupt,
the most contemptible, ruling class the
world has ever known.
The Rulers who ignore law, ignore
government, prostitute religion, de
bauch the schools, deprave the minds
of the young, teach the practice of
deception and hypocrisy, consider suc
cessful adulteration as a science, pre
tend to believe in '. the divinity of a
working man, yet crucify him every
moment of their lives. ,
Send millions of dollars worth of
supplies to those to whom they owe
no obligations, and refuse to recog
nize any right as inherent in those to
whom they owe every obligation that
can bind a human being. > i,
And yet this is the natural result
of a crazy system and not the result
of great differences in the f human
units composing the different strata
Rockefeller cannot donate to his
own slaves any considerable portion
of that which he has filched from them
without losing his slaves and his com
manding position as a capitalist. For
by feeding his starving slaves he
would enable them to resist his ex
ploitation to the point of exhaustion
on . both sides instead of only on the
side of the slaves. Clear now isn't it?
Rockefeller cannot allow freedom of
education, for by doing so he under
mines his own power. His power is
based upon the ignorance of his
slaves, a free mind never consents to
dwell in an enslaved body. Rockefel
ler must control education, or the
minds of the slaves will become free,
and he will then lose control over
their labor and their lives.
So why waste futile efforts in at
tempting a reconciliation between
these hostile positions, or in praise
or blame of either one side or the
other? Instead let the workers estab
lish and maintain their institutions of
learning, and free their own minds of
the dead weight of traditions, step
ping forth as men and no longer tak
ing their dogmas, creeds and super
stitions from the Rulers, but learning
