By Berton Braley
Out of chaos, out of murk
1 arose and did my work ;
while the ages changed and sped,
1 was totllni for my bread,
Underneath my sturdy blows
Forests tell and cities rose.
And the hard, reluctant soil
Blossomed richly from my toll.
Palaces and temples grand
Wrought l With my cunning hand.
Kli'h Indeed was my reward —■
Stunted soul and body scarred
With the murks of scourge and rod,
I, the tiller of the Bod,
Prom the cradle to tho grave
Shambled through tin' world—a slavo!
Crushed and trampled! beaten, cursed,
Serving beßt, but served tinl worst,
Starved and cheated, gouged and
Still i bullded, still i toiled,
In the world myself had made.
Up from slavery 1 rise,
Dreamt and wonder In my eyes.
After brutal ages past,
Coming to my own at last.
I, was slave —but 1 am free!
1 was blind—but 1 can boo!
1, the builder, 1, the maker,
I, the calm tradition-breaker,
Blare and serf and clod no longer,
Know my strength — and who Is
I am done with ancient frauds,
Ancient lies and ancient gods—
All that sham is overthrown,
I* shall take and keep my own,,
Master of the world I've made!

MEN AND women all over Amer
ica today have tailed among thieves.
You must bind up their wounrli: you
must catch the thieves, and you must
break up the system which promotes
WOMEN AND men the world over
work because they and those dear to
them must live. It is doddering non
sense to speak to them in the same
breath of work and joy. Their joy
comes through a relief from work.
THE ADEQUACY of wages may be
tested in terms of the health and de
cency which are involved in the main
tenance of physical efficiency. If in
dustry is to support its workers, if so-
ciety is to see to it that families are
not forced to depend upon charity,
wages must be sufficient to enable
the wage-earners to buy health and
decency. At the present time, in the
United States, the wages paid to a
considerable portion of the adult male
workers are insufficient to permit de
cent family living.
THE PRESENT WAGE scale, paid
to workers by American industry pre
vents millions of them from giving a
family of three young children the
simple decencies of life necessary to
the maintenance of health and effi
AT THE SAME TIME, industry is
organized on such a large scale basis
that the Dumber of positions "at the
top" is strictly limited. Among the
employes of the American railways,
for example, one in 100 is an officer.
The proportion is higher for manufac
turing industries, although it is sel
dom that more than 10 per cent of
the men employed in an established
Industry hold positions which involve
even a moderate amount c.-f responsi
bility and initiative.
AMONG ALL of the basic, prin
clpll s of economic life, none is more
vital than this that every ablebodled
adult should have a job; that he
should work at the thing for which he
is best fitted; and that he should be
paid the full value for what he pro
THE HOPE of America lies In its
workers. To them the nation owes
its existence. Upon them rests the
possibility of continued growth. The
worker must be encouraged and the
THE NATION is built on the work
of its workers.
A GREAT PORTION of those ren

which they render in exchange for
their, daily bread.

GET IT NOW
Now is the time to get into the
fight the Socialists are waging in the
City of Everett Now is the time to
make your donation to the campaign
fund. Now is the time to drive homo
to the workers the fundamental prin
ciples of Socialism,, They are eager
for our message. The workers listen
more readily today to our message
than they have ever been known to
in the past. We must grasp the pres
ent situation and place our message in
the hands of the toilers. This can
not be done without funds. Our only
source of obtaining these funds is
from you. We are therefore waiting
for you to act. You can rest assured
that all monies will be judiciously
spent. Every cent will be used to
drive a sledge hammer blow at the
system and every blow will loosen
the grasp of plutocratic politicians on
the keys of the Everett City Hall.
RING OUT THE GLAD NEWS
Everett is to be the next city on tho
Socialist map. After making careful
investigations in all parts of the city
the campaign committee find that the
election of our three candidates on
tho primary ballot is absolutely a suro
thing. So many Socialists have been
made in the pail year that it is only
a question of counting tho hallo's to
determine llio enormity of our growth.
All ovei the world the same thing has
liappenAd, po It is not unnatural that
it should have happened here with
tho amount of hard work done this
The Socialist vote in some parts of
(lie world has shown such a tremen
dous increase that it is hardly con
ceivable. Right here on the Amer
ican continent, as shewn in this pa
per in previous issues, the growth has
been so great thai the old party poli
ticians have given up in hopeless
despair. The sentiment in this city :
is very gratifying and it only means ■
that every shoulder must go to the :
tvueel after the primaries to insure a !
complete victory for Socialism in the
City of Everett.
Every comrade that can spare the
time on election day will be. needed In
the polls to watch the counting of
the ballots. Our strength Is known to
the politicians of Everett. Therefore
we want a strong, wide-awake bunch
of Socialists in every booth. If you
are willing to serve, get in touch with
us before election day and we will
place you and give you instructions

Minors In the state of Washington
are working on an average of two
day« a week. You need more fuel to
beat UP your house. There are mil
lion* of tons or fuel In the bowels
of the earth and thousands of men
willing to mine it. And why Is it that
it cannot be mined? Simply because
it Is owned by corporations that must
make profits on what they control.
The Socialists are out for the control
of these mines by the people. When
the people who own the mines want
fuel all they will have to do Is to have
tho fuel brought to the surface and

8,210,000 farmers aro struggling for a

would willingly work these lands are
swelling the armies of the unemployed
in tlii' cities and towns.
No person can truthfully say that
the workers cannot produce enough,
for we neo stores and warehouses
filled to overflowing on every side.
Then, why is It that those that pro
duce these things, go hungry and rag
ged? Tln> reason can be found in
the fact that the workers on an aver
age only get enough in wages to buy
back about one-fifth of what they
produce. The other four-fifths is re
tained by the owners of factories, etc.
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
(An editorial in American Socialist)
There might have been a real in
vestigation of the Eastland disaster in
Chicago. But the Republicans and
Democrats elected to office with the
campaign funds provided by the
plutes saw to it that there wasn't.
When the Chicago city council met
in special session to discuss the East
land disaster, William E. Rodriguez,
Socialist alderman from the 15th
Ward, seeing that the other aldermen
intended doing nothing except ex
press their sympathy to the survivors
of the 1,000 dead, offered a resolution
providing for a real investigation. If
Rodringuez's resolution had passed,
and if the city council had followed
its usual custom, the Socialist alder
man would have been made chairman
of the special investigating commit
To permit such an investigation,
however, would have been a greater
catastrophe, in the minds of the Chi
cago anti-Socialist aldermen, than the
sacrifice of the 1,000 victims. So the
adroit political tools of the shipping
interests immediately amended the
'proposition so that the investigation
would be made by the subservient
wharves and bridges committee of the
council, where the investigation will
slumber and die of old age, with all
other measures aiming to safeguard
If the workers want protection for
workers, they must put in office only
candidates of their own party, the
Socialist party—a party organized,
controlled and financed by the work
