To tho dllorI would like to Fay a
fow words for tho benefit if it may bo
such of Bro W E I M and others in
like fix as I am in the wuno boat
It must bu iickiinwlbdgcd that for
over u hundred I years wo I o been
lighting tho ianio battle vim uivo wo
gained Polltlcsl Politic I Thats nil
and a fow Insignificant laws Hiatus FOOU
as thero is a way to mako use of them
porno court decides that they dont mean
what they way
Wo then pay men who dont know
what they mean to mako laws that thu
courts dont or wont know what they
mean provided they t nro for tho benefit
of tho majority
I would like for any brother working
man to tell mo of ono law that was
node for tho many Instead of tho few
that has not been thrown down as soon
as hero t was a raw for it
Judge Hrcntnnns decision in tho
Chicago stockyards case equivalent to
saying that tho laws of Chicago only
apply to the fire limits You see it was
only working men and women to bo
burned or poisoned by tho violation of
tho law
lint wo have a euro for our ills It is
its sum as that the sun rises and sets It
Is in tho union label They might try
butt hoy cant Kgislato it out if they
did it would cost us no inoro to print
fair lists of gixxls to distribute among
tho union men
What is tho difference if Tom Dick
or Harry or any other scab bo President
of tho United States if WE wont buy
seal goods
Our union men and their wives are a i
plenty If they alono demand tho label
it will bo Mifllcietit
rIo capitalist class run most of the
stores not for fun but for profit
If you wont have their goods without
tho label they will soon get goods with
tho label
labelWill
Will your neighbor bo in n humor to
help you when you need him if you do
not act and ndvociito help for others
Let each and every ono say If I cant
find this or that with tho label I can
stand it to wait a fobs days until I can
find it with tho label Then I will
havo moro money to tqxtnil with the
fair man when I find him Almost
everything imaginable can now bo pur
chased with the label
Why vrnsto time on polities esix > cially
at such a time when enemies are at tho
head of both tho leading tickets when
we have a friend time label that has
done moro for us In a week than poll
tics has in an hundred years
Preach the label for breakfast
Preach tho label for dinner
Preach tho label for supper
And moro converts can bo monde in an
hour than in politics in n year
I would advocate n fine for any man
appearing in it labor jmrnde wearing
any article not bearing the union label
Dunns
Socialism Spells Anarchy
To the editor of Catholic Columbian
In time IIIUO or your paper of August
20th you say
Mr Donnelly leader of tho stock
yard strike in Chicago is a Socialist
Socialistfrhat
That shows that ho is badly informed
on tho labor question Socialism sjMlls
anarchy government oppression and
labor slavery Its fundamental pried
ides cannot bo held by n Christian
Tho fact that Mr Donnelly has bo
comi a Socialist if ho has really become
one indicates not that ho is badly in
formed 011 thin labor question but
rather that ho Is beginning to under
stand what time labor movement means
Your assertion that Socialism sixjls
anarchy government oppression and
labor slavery III I simply n false asser
tion tinged with moro or less of malice
and that is all
ButJJyou aro making known to tho
working class and they will understand
how to profit by tho knowledge tho po
sition yon occupy in this struggle be
tween tho working class and tho capi
talist class
You nro for tho capitalists and against
tho workers for tho fleecers and against
tholr victims for tho robbers and
against tho robbed for tho rich and
against tho poor
You say Its fundamental princi
plea cannot bo held by n Christaln
They cannot oh And why not Is
Christianity so thoroughly and irrovoca
bly committed to tho perpetuation of
time institution of wage slavery that in
order to esponso tho cause of economic
equality of industrial freedom ono
must abandon tho Christian religion
I call hardly believe this your dictum
to this effect notwithstanding
But suppose your theory or rather
your assertion that Christianity Is irroc
onsidorablo with tho fundamental prin
ciples ofjiSociiJIsm were true What

then It would simply mean n gradual
loss to time church of tho most intelligent
active ambitious and indoxmdent ale
ment of its working class members who
feel capable of doing their own political
thinking and voting for themselves
I know that you aro always ready and
oven eager to receive endorsements at
tho hands of rich men hut canyon afford
loallcnato from tho church time good will
of hundreds of thousands of working
men In order to gain rich mens gold
If you can it will only go to show
that tho suspicion which in many qnar
terms already amounts to conviction that
time I salvation of souls is not tho only
business of your profession is not alto
gather unfounded
Why did you not tell your readers
what the fundamental principles of So
cialism mire and then explain why n
Christian cannot hold them
If time fundamental principles of So
cialism are erroneous will you pluuso
point wherein Or do you expect your
readers to accept your editorial opinions
as infallible utterances and your deci
sions as authoritative decrees
When you say n Christian cannot bo n
Socialist cannot support time Socialist
party or vote its ticket you mean that
so far as your power to prevent it ex
tends tho Christain citizens of this ro
public shall exercise at their peril tho
constitutional right of alllllating with
that Xlltical organization their best
judgment approves
Socialists hold that tho pcoplo of
every country should have the right of
self government that it is tho right of
tho majority to determine tho form of
government or organized society under
which thoy are to live that if tho
working class shall bo convinced that it
I is to their interest to organize them
selves Into it class political party to ad
vnnco their class interests they bravo
tho right to do so and that if said
working class constitute tho majority in
any nation they have tho right to gov
ern said nation if they see fit to do so
Do you say it Christian cannot hold
to these principles Socialists hold to
these principles and thoy arc educating
and organizing thoir fellow w orkiug
men of tho world to hold with them the
fundamental truth that tho land of
every nation should bo owned collective
ly I by the peoplo of that nation that tho
machinery of production and distribu
tion should be owned by those who pro
duce and operate it that consequently
rent interest and profit should bo abol
ishtd that those who will not wmJfi <
being able to work shall not eat
Now do you say n Christian cannot
hold these principles Will you pleaso
jioliit out wherein they are wrong
If you cannot jxiiit out wherein
Socialists arc wrong yon cannot expect
us to abandon our convictions
