IUTGEE OF LAKE COUNTY
Two Harbors Citizens Circulat

Distributed In Duluth—Re

Two Harbors must go without a
representative in the state legislature
this winter, and treacherous citizens
of Lake county are responsible for it.
Abe McGee was the candidate from
Two Harbors for the legislature, but
he was not suitable to the crowd who
have been manipulating the political
machine of Lake county for the past
Members of this machine, and their
names might be mentioned if it would

this city that Mr. McGee pushed him
self into the legislative fight, and he
would not be supported by the citi
zens of Lake county.
On election day these men went
about the city of Duluth, particularly
in the First, Second and Fourth wards,
and buttoned-holed every leading poli
tician ,they could meet, making asser
tions about McGee, that we are sure
they could not repeat in Two Harbors,
and live there in happiness.
The poison they spread had its ef
fect, and many Duluth citizens voted
against the Two Harbors candidate on
the strength of statements made by
the leading citizens of that vil
Now the Duluthians are sorry. They
see that they have been the victims of
treachery and deceit. Returns from
Lake county indicate that Mr. McGee
was mighty strong there. He polled a
higher vote than eithep Miller or Hugo,
and rather than being an unpopular
citizen of Two Harbors it is learned
that he is one of the strong and inde
pendent citizens of that village who
does not owe allegiance to any "inter
ests," which may be particularly con
cerned about who the representatives
in the legislature are.

Many Citizens Take Exception
to Union Labor's Methods
of Pledging Candidates.
Fearful Lest Labor Well Seek
Only Class Legislation—
Jealous of Power.
Not a few well meaning citizens
are very much alarmed over the fact
that organized labor has a number of
candidates for the Legislature pledged
to work and vote for several measures
df-ired by labor.
These very much concerned friends
don't like the idea of questioning can
didates. They fear class legislation.
They are afraid that labor will carry
the thing with a high hand and crush
every one else. How ridiculous. If
labor was so unfair it would have
grasped the reins of government long
ago, and there would not be a cor
poral's guard of the other fellows left
to tell the tale.
All labor asks is ita own. It is
wrong to imagine that union labor de
sires legislation to benefit labor only.
In all of the political demands of labor
there is not one that bears on the
question of organized labor. Their en
actment into law would benefit all
It Is also wrong to assume that a
small faction of the people is trying
to control political affairs. Whatever
legislation we ask for is to benefit all
Strange to say those who are com
plaining .about union labor entering
politics, are usually those who have
been a part of political machines in
the past, and are jealous of well organ
ized workingmen when they butt into
the political game.
It may be true that Secretary Dea
con of the state labor political com
mittee was a trifle blunt in submitting
the questions to the candidates. He
asked for a straight "Yes or No" an
swer, and some of the candidates
didn't- quite like that. They wished
to trim, and make this or that qualifi
cation. This is what we have been
getting for several years, and when
we reminded members of the legisla
tures of their pledges they did not
hesitate to mention their qualifications,
with the results that we- were not get
ting legislation. This time we knew
what we wanted, and we merely asked
candidates whether they were for or

THE LABOR UNION IN POLITICS.
The entry of the labor unions into
the political arena is causing a great
ftltore all over the country. The move
ment has hardly got started, but has
been heralded throughout the land.
Men.' of all glasses, that believe right
and -think right favor the plah and saY
that the movement is a good thing and
that labor is justified in trying, to
protect its Interests. The unlbn men
will read all kinds of stories in the"
newspapers, some setting forth that It
Is a bad thlng. etc. But pay no atten
tion to' such articles. Most'of them
are written by space fillers .at so much,
per column and dated any old place
that fltis the' story. We read one the
other/day telling how ^his political
movenrent would disrupt the American
tfitderailon of lAbO!* iu|4J

great deal of concern for the labor or
ganization. But some of the same
people that get up this kind of stuff
are the very ones that have been try
ing for several years to break up the
labor unions, with tjie assistance of
such men as Parry and Post, but how
they are really afraid the labor or
ganizations might get hurt by enter
ing politics. Wouldn't that Jar you?
And again, It Is c}ted, that the old
Knights qf Labor went to pieces be
cause of politics. Well, anyone that
lis posted in the crrganiaatiton "labor
movement knows very well that it was
not because of politics that the
•Khights of Labor went out of business,
it was something else, and every
union man knows it. "There's a rea
son" for this pretended concern dis
played by some ppople for the welfare
of the labor unions because 'of their in
tention to go into politics. Doiyt

unions will take care of themselves.
