U. and the railroads is not the capitalistic class, for we expect to find them on the side of railroads ; but the mean est man is the laborer who is against the union and in favor of the rail roads. He is a poor, miserable, cringing tool, whose opinions are echoes, and whose hands no honest man of any class should touch. He is meaner than the renegade white who in early days joined the Indians in murdering and (fobbing white communities. The capitalist we can forgive, and treat with respect, for where a man's treasure is, it is natu ral for his heart. to be, also; but there is only one place for the fel low who, working hard for a living himself, takes sides against his fellow-laborers, and that place has a climate a blamed sight hotter than Fresno. Not all capitalists and em ployers are against the A. R. U. in tin's stiuggle. Many of them are broad-minded and good hearted men, and used their means in a public spirited way, and they are with hu manity in its struggle to better its condition. The distance between one of these better ciass of capital ists, though he were worth millions, and the laborer who is against other laborers, is as great as the distance between Heaven and Hell. Every sell respecting man despises the toady, the tool, the sycophant. People will use traitors, but they despise them, always. So we say to every laboring man, don't reserve your hate for the man who is natur ally against your side of the ques tion. Reserve it all for the con temptible cur of a laborer who, in stead of being a man, prefers to bo a cringiDg lickspittle. New Char ter, Santa Cruz, Cal. Judas Ellen Foster, Helen Kim bej and two or three other pretend ed woman-suffragists, who are first Republicans, and then suffragists, propose to fight for the Republican part' despite its cowardly attitude on the question, and they have char tered a section of the Topekii Breeze, and have contracted for ten thousand copies of that paper each week during the campaign, to boom their party.
