SOCIALISTS AT WORK
When the great street car strike
was followed by an endeavor on the
part of the car companies to import a

prohibiting the use of strikebreakers
on the street car lines of Chicago.
The council passed the ordinance un
der suspension of the rules.
The ordinance provides that no man
shall work either as motorman or con
ductor on the Chicago car lines who
has not had twenty-one days of con
tinuous training in Chicago under a
competent man, who in turn has serv
ed at least three years in Chicago.

Is at hand. Com. Sudden, with the
aid of Local Tacoma Four, launched a
motion calling upon the national ex.
committee to draw up a text book for
use in his little Sunday school. We
doubt the ability of the N. E. C. to
deliver the goods. Moreover we are
itching to detract a little glory from
Local Puyallup, who are also an au

A Thick Skin Essential.
No doubt there are in the sequester

state hundreds of aspiring young stu

the future; some will become candi
dates for cong. ' from the 3d district
when Lea Aller has sought his well
earned rest, and others will edit the
Milwaukee Leader. To these and to
Jimmy Sut's Sunday school kids we
would say that the most essential re
quisite of a first class Socialist is a
thick skin in the region of the ears
so as not to be disturbed by the gentle
criticisms of the corns. To under

ance that one thoroughly digest the

There was a . form of Socialism
stalking abroad in the land before evo
lution was invented. In those days we
conceived of Socialism as being com
prised chiefly of imposing municipal
ly-owned stores, as spick and span, as
a Standard Oil lunch room. We were
waited on by dapper little clerks at

lem emblazoned on their left sleeves,

proof packages and never fibbed about

precision of a U. S. mail route and

j we had performed two hours of stren
uous labor we hied ourselves gently
homeward in our Fords over well
paved roads. Along the highways con
tented cows grazed on well kept lawns.
The lull of the stately elms, whose
lengthening shadows fell silently over
the country-side, soothed us with
peace and quietness. Struggle was no
This brand of Socialism has gone
to seed. Like com. Charlie Wallace's
state chairman, it has been pooh
poohed into oblivion by science. We
have covered up the flaws in our
scheme with high sounding terms und
er the guise of evolution.
Evolution Is Invented.
Evolution was invented about the
middle of the 19th cent, by a set of
high brows who felt themselves too
good to work and who had an un
quenchable desire to get their names
into the papers. It was brought out
at a time when society was having
troubles of its own and could pay no
attention to these eminent ones. This
is why they were not drawn, quarter
ed, and boiled in oil. The result is
that humanity must continue to be
tormented in vain attempts to solve
their inexplicable riddles.
The theory of evolution has it that

everything is shifting around. ' Noth

nothing will be as it is. It does not
necessarily mean '. that your great
grandfather was an ape, although you
might be an ass. Darwin framed up
the theory of organic evolution
through .natural selection. He at
tempted to show that man, T. R. for

worm, is the result of countless ages
of painful progress. We know that
this must be a mistake, as regards T.

; Marx Saves Rent. ;■". ■
So it came to pass that there was
Karl Marx. He had been living in
the Carnegie public library of ' Lon
don for thirty years to save rent. Al
so he never shaved. Fred Engels was
getting tired of grub-staking him and
Mr. Marx was fearful of losing his
meal ticket unless he produced re
sults. ' Sitting one bleak November
day in his customary place with bis
feet atop the radiator gazing gloomily
down Threadneedle street, and re
flecting bitterly on his tough luck, an
idea flashed into his mind. "Now

ed, "he will undoubtedly make a name
for himself when he gets his theory

lying around loose to which no one
had stuck his trade mark was society.
True Hegel had experimented with it,
but the most Hegel had done was to»
point out that, to be in style, society
should evolute like everything else:
He had tried to make it evolute but
the darned thing wouldn't spin. Marx,
he of Jewish extraction, being also
something of an economist, shrewdly
guessed that he would have a market
able commodity of high potential
value if he could succeed in making
society evolute. Moreover, he saw
what Hegel hal not seen. Hegel had
failed to supply the motive power to
keep society moving along. Mr. Marx
then ambled to the telephone and call
ed up the store to hear what Engels
thought about it. Engels admitted
that it was about the best thing that
could be done, and from that time for
ward unil his death Marx unburdened
himself of accumulated wisdom that
will puzzle mankind unto eternity.
Marx had already a fairly accurate
idea of the type of engine to attach
to society to keep it in motion. He
labeled it the Class Struggle. Some
time in the future we will explain to
our expectant readers something of
the workings of this intricate machine.
In the meantime we remain,
