SOCIALISM AND ETHICS NOT IDENTICAL
Pity for poverty, enthusiasm for equality and freedom,
recognition of social injustice and a desire to remove it, is not
Socialism. Condemnation of wealth and respect for poverty,
such as we find in Christianity and other religions, is not So
cialism . . . Modern Socialism is the child of capitalist
society and its class antagonisms. Without these it could not
be. SOCIALISM AND ETHICS ARE TWO SEPARATE
THINGS. This fact must be kept in mind.—Wilhelm Lieb
knecht in "No Compromise."

Tell your neighbors about this great
Q. A widow with four children
married a bachelor. At the time of
the marriage he was holding a home
stead, and had contracted for the pur
chase of aome land from the N. P.
railway. After the marriage the above
mentioned property was deeded to him
by the government and the railway
company. There was some more land
bought from the railway company and
some city lots were also acquired aft
er they were married. She died first
and left no will. He died two months
afterward. There were two children
from this marriage, and he willed all
of the property except the homestead
to his two children. The homestead
he willed to three of his step-children,
and to the fourth he willed $500.00,
which wa* to come from the home
stead, provided the administrator con
sidered this heir worthy of It when he
came of age. This fourth step-child,
according to the term* of the will,
could choose between the $500.00 and
two years' schooling. Shortly after
the death of the testator all the chil
dren were sent to privately owned
schools, among them this fourth step
child, and he was not consulted about
it. He stayed at school about five
months, and then quit on his own ac
cord, and rustled for himself since
then. When he was twenty years old
he got $200.00 from the administrator,
and did not get any more since. There
is quite a lot more to this, but I will
cut It short as possible, and say: This
will was made in 1890. All of the
property has fallen Into the hands of
the other heirs, and most of it has
been sold. Some of the property is In
Idaho, and some in Washington
What I want to know is: Did the tes
tator have a legal right to will all of
the property, or was not a part of it
community property and belonged le
gally to his wife? Was all of her
heirs entitled to an equal share in
this community share of her's, since
she died intestate? If so could her
heirs now contest the will success
fully? Have the present owners clear
title to the property? Thanking you
in advance for your answer, I am, etc.
A. Most of the property you have
mentioned was community property.
The homestead might perhaps be held
to be the executor's separate property.
Upon the death of the wife the legal
title to her community interest (half)
therein passed to her heirs equally.
The testator had no right to will that
half to any one; and his attempted
willing of that interest to others could
not give legal title. You cannot con
test the will however. It is too late,
if I judge correctly.' No one can con
test a will after one year after it has
been admitted to probate; or in your
case, after one year from the time
you became of age. You do not state
your age, but I infer that the time has
passed. However, you can still assert
your title or interest in the property.
If, however, you are under twenty-two
years, you can contest the will. From
your statement, one would infer that
there has not been any administration
on your mother's estate. But there
might have been without your know
ing or realizing it. Have some one
examine the probate records. You can
still have your mother's estate pro
bated. Or,, you can bring an action
against the other heirs and holders of
the property to "quiet title."
Q. I moved my family to Spokane
last year. I live In King county. Can
I vote In King county and my wife
vote in Spokane? Or must both have
the same legal residence?

county if she registers within the re

Q. As I am a subscriber I would
like to have the following answered

board got the right to refuse people
the use of the school building for pub

A. The school law provides, Sec.
4481: "Every board of directors
shall have power—To 'authorize- the
school room to be used for summer
or night schools, or for public, liter
ary, scientific, religious, political, me

NEW YORK—Wastage of life in
American factories, as deplorable In
its way as the slaughter on the bat
tlefields of Europe, ami the ravages
of preventable disease in this coun
try, Were Inveighed against by Wil
liam ('. Redfleld, secretary of com
merce, to the graduates of Manhattan
college at the commencement exer
cises. "So long as wo have so many
shortcomings of our own we should
not be ovorcritlcal of those of other
nations," the secretary argued.
Redfleld commented on the material
progress of the United States since
the European war began, which had
given us "a position of financial
power such as we never before held.
"But while we look with horror on
the mass of dead and wounded on
the fields of battle yonder, do; we
look with equal horror on the lists
of dead and wounded In our own fac
tories? How long will the Christian
character of America permit that to

ALREADY RANKS HIGH
ENTHUSIASM AT SNOHOMISH
On Tuesday, Juno 22, the people of
Snohomish had an opportunity to hear
a lecture given by our youthful orator,
comrade Carl Ulonska.
Only a school boy, but he already
ranks among the best speakers in the
state. _ ;
He holds his audiences spell-bound
from start to finish; for he really has
a message for them; a message that
educates, cheers and convinces even
the most obstinate ones.
He has served the party in respon
sible positions of trust, and has been
loyal and efficient in all of them.
The Socialist party can be justly
proud of htm. .

SOCIALISM VERSUS INDIVID
"Individualism regards humanity as
made up of disconnected or warring
atoms. Socialism regards it as an
organic whole. . . . The aim of So
cialism is the fulfillment of service;
the aim of individualism is the at
tainment of some personal advantage
—riches, place or fame. Socialism
seeks such an organization of life as
shall secure for everyone the most
complete development of his powers;
Individualism seeks primarily the
satisfaction of the particular wants of
each one, in the hope that the pur
suit of private interests will, in the
end, secure public welfare."Social

OWNED BY FOREIGN LAND
There are now 20,647 acres of land
in the United States owned by twenty
nine foreign landlords and foreign
syndicates.' The amount of land thus
owned is as large as Ireland. Indeed,
one Irish landlord is said to draw
$400,000 annual income in hack rents
from his estates in Illinois. One Eng
lish gentleman in London owns 700,000
acres of American land. The census
of 1880 showed that there were 1,024,
--601 tenant farmers in the United
States. That number must have in
creased considerably in six years, and
at the present time our American
"peasantry" probably outnumbers that
of Great Britain and Ireland combined.
At any rate there are in Ireland today
only 547,222 tenant buildings; in Eng
land and Wales together but 414,804,
and in all Scotland 81,101. The state
of Illinois alone has 20,000 more land
tenants than Scotland. France has
today 5,000,000 small rural proprietors
and 2,000,000 large proprietors and
owners of real estate in towns. Alto
gether, both great and small, the num
ber of landed proprietors in the Unit
ed States is not quite 3,000,000, and
yet we have a greater population than
France by 12,000,000 and many times
as much land as that country.—Pro

THE BREAKING OF THE NEVA
By VICTOR HUGO
We are in Russia. The Neva
frozen. Heavy carriages roll upon its
surface. They improvise a city. They
lay out streets. They build houses.
They buy. They sell. They laugh.
They dance. They permit themselves
anything. They even light fires on
this water become granite.
There is winter, there is ice and
they shall last forever. A gleam pale
and wan spreads over the sky and
one would say that the sun is dead.
But no, thou are not dead, O Lib
erty! At an hour when they have
most profoundly forgotten thee, thou
shalt arise, oh, dazzling sight! Thou
shalt shoot thy bright and burning
rays, thy heat, thy life, on all this
mass of ice become hideous and dead.
Do you hear that dull thud, that
crackling, deep and dreadful? 'Tis
the Neva tearing loose. You said it
was granite. See, it splits like glass.
'Tis the breaking of the ice, I tell you.
'Tis the water alive, joyous and ter
rible. Progress recommences. 'Tis
humanity again beginning its march.
'Tis the river which retakes its
course, uproots, mangles, strikes to
gether, crushes and drowns in its
waves not only the empire of upstart
Czar Nicholas, but all of the relics of
ancient and modern despotism.
That trestle work floating away?
It la the throne. That other trestle?
It is the scaffold. That old book, half
sunk? It is the old code of capitalist
laws and morals. That old rookery
just sinking? It is a tenement house
in which wage slaves lived.
See these all passing by, never more
to return; and for this immense en
gulfing, for this supreme victory of
life over death, what has been the
power necessary? •

YE PARTY COLYUM
While we were seated in the coffee
house the other morning chiseling de
solation into a ham sandwich, a
stranger accosted us who demanded to
know if we were editor of Ye Party
Colyum. We invited him to join us In
a glass of water and assured him we
were Ye Editor. Ignoring our hospi
tality he drew a red card from an ex
pensive leather case, and explained
impressively that he had recently
come from Shipley, lowa, where he
bad been a local member for thirteen
months. We inquired if he were.re
lated to Ye Editor Shipley. But he
ignored us and proceeded to state that
he had been reading our articles and
had become utterly disgusted there
with; he also insisted that the boy at
the top of our colyum should have
had a hair cut. Furthermore he ex-
pressed keen displeasure with the ma
terial that appeared in the paper, the
same being too radical for him. He
also considered the new name un
couth, beside having some minor ob
jections. We inquired as to how long
he had been a subscriber. He seemed
somewhat embarrassed and said he
had not yet subscribed. "WHAT?"
we roared, thinking how we had been
'cheated. But our manner must not
' have been reassuring for he left hur
riedly without shaking hands.
We attended local meeting Friday

officers were to be elected. We at

We note with satisfaction that much

might say for the information of our
friends that we have been a Socialist

When discovered he appeared to be
laboring under considerable distress,

during the early morning hours, while
industriously nailing up posters about
his home town, he was hailed by a

some one explain of what good Social
