142 years ago today.
.Although special lagsji existed in
so'ic of the colonies pii it7 to the
American Revolution, it wasy red, t
white and blue banner of 1'ntland e
that was carried to victory in the >
lonial wars against Spain. Fra tie
and the Indians. Most of the early
flags of the colonists were patterned
after the Union Jack of the mother
country. The (;rand Union flag,
ised at Cambridge in 1776, was the
first used by thei American aiiy that Ii
had the thirteen alternate red and
white ttripes, the number symbolic
of the thirteen colonies. Many flags
were proposed during the Revolu
t ion and the early days of the re
public. One of them, designed by
'TIhomas Paine, was composed of all

Allenites.
The fountlr of the sect called Al
lenites was the Rev. Henry Allen,
who was born in Newport, It. i., 171
years ago today. June 14, 1748. The
Allenites were numerous in the co
lonial lays in America, and the sect
still has i few adherents on both
sides of the Atlantic. Henry Allen
'i1 taught thatt the soul of a human ie
ing is an emanation or part of the
great spirit, and that all of us were,
Ipresent with our earliest ancestors
in the Carden of Edelt and participat
eol in the fatal eating of the apple.
lit IIe held that Adam and Eve, before
k the fall, were immaterial spirits
without material bodies, and that
they were given the burden of flesh
ll only after their-and our -trans
gression. The Allenites refused to
Ill accept the doctrine of the resurrec
It ion of the body, itwhihli was one of
the first articles of the orthodox
It' faith in those days, and they also de-i
be Blared the ordinances of the gospel
to be little account and matters of

of the Christian Scientists and other
sects of the present stay. In their

liberty a tit-die pursuit of happiness.
That to secuti these rights, govern- e

two years ago, today is blazed and
trodden. Tomorrow this path will I
be replaced by a paved road.
Russia has set the example. H-ler
contititutiton (July, 1918) begins i
with a bill of rights of which this is
the tirst paragraph: "Bearing ini
ttmind as its fundamental problem the -
abolition of exploitation of mten by t
in en, the entitre abolition of the di
vision of the people into classes, the
i 1 suppression of exploiters and the es
tabliehiment of a socialist society."
Later in the same section ;
are the words, "Universal obligation t
1- to work is introduced for the purpose :
I, of eliminating the parasitic strata of
1 society and organizing the economic
e lit-" of the coilitunity." Section 18
)- reads:
,t "The Russian Soviet Republic con
hi siders work the duty of every citisemn
n of the republic, and proclaims as its
e- motto: 'iIe shall not eat who does I
ie not work.' "
"e That is the spirit in which the
rs fundatentail law of the new world

The Russians make the negative

(b) Persons who have ani in

t(c) Private merchants, trade

The Russian worker is eligible to
vote and to hold office because he
is a worker.
The Russian profiteer is denied
the right to vote and to hold office
bca uase lie is a profiteer.
The people of Russia have discov
ered and expounded a new crime,
the crime which one member of so
ciety commits when he says to a fel
low member-- "You work and toil
and earn bread and I will eat it."
The workers of Russia have writ
ten into their constitution many
other provisions, such as those by
which all private property In land
is abolished; all forests, treasures of
1t earth, and waters of general
puitc utility, all factories, mills,
minesýtptilways, and all the banks
and ot1len4 financial institu tions are
transferredc'to the ownership of the
coinunity without compensation to
their former owine's.
That is the only way in which la
bor can benefit labor. Sham reforms
and patch-work measures- are a de
lusion and soare. The workers must
own the works before they can hope
to be free.
They Will Go!
1Mday first the international hibor
holiday so generally observed by the
workers of Europe saw fresh indig
nities heaped upon the foreign born
ioen and women in the United States.
The police, representing "law and
order" vied with mobs of unifornied
soldiers and sailors in their efforts to
make this country an impossible liv
ing place for any self-respecting 1pmr
eigner. A concert given by a I-limp
garian Singing society was raided by
400 soldiers, who insisted upon '''lThe
i Star Spangled Banner" and forbade
the playing of all Hungarian or Ger
man music. Meeting places of for
'eign-born workers were attacked;
meetings were broken up, aod men
and women were insulted Snd as
saultl d.
The soldier-mob raids were care
i fully planned and executed; the po
A lice were directed from headquart
s ers. The masters of American life
evidently desire this thing. If they
did not, they would easily stop it.
Be satisfied, masters; these "for
- eigners" will go. Already they are
- leaving by the hundreds of thou
sands, and recent investigations show
- that, as soon as passports can be se
- cured, between 5,000,000 and 10,
000,000 of foreign-born men and wo
men expect to go back to Europe.
e The last census reported 13,345,545
e foreign-born individuals in the Uni
e ted States. This body of working
0 people, who have been doing the
hard work of the United States for
(. decades, will go back to Europe.
I Well, what then?
r Then the workers who remain will
be able temporarily to demand and
secure labor-famine wages. Then
e the masters will have their excuse
.t for bringing black labor from the
south to the north (as they did dur
ing the war) and for bringing yellow
r coolie labor as they did a generation
ted States as they did a generation
d ago.
The driving out of millions of for
t- eigners means ultimately the im
-position of more acute forms of slav
ery upon the American working peo
e ple. Thus tyranny will grow; des
f- potism will enthrone itself, and cap
ur italism will die by its own hands.
