It is sad, but true, that President WV'ilson's letters seem tI have lost their magic influenee even with the faithful Gompers. The witlidrawal of the labor delegation from the industrial conference after Secretary Lane had read the president's plea' in impressive tones indicates this. The ambition of the late John Mitchell has been realized. 'Caapifal and labor have gathered in one room and looked one another squarely in the eye," as he wished. President W\ilson'spolicy has been tried: "RIepresentatives of capital and representatives of labor sitting around the same table and talking as man to man.' Gompers' policy of "negotiation and conciliation" has been given a thorough test; he has met the representatives of capi tal under the most favorable circumstances, with at least the nominal backing of the president of the United States. What has been the result? Even the stanldpat leaders of the ultra-conservative element of the trade union movement have been treated with scornful contempt by the representatives of capital; they have been shown that capital believes because of their years of leader ship and the enforcement of their policies that the forces of labor are emasculated and powerless; they have had it proved to them that capital believes because of its control of the gov erning forces it can whip labor to heel any time it pleases to do so. What do you think now of your doctrine of the identity of interest between capital and labor, you ''conservative and construlctive spokesmen of the bona fide labor movement? What becomes now of your policy of "making a friend of the employer?" Why dolln't you repeat all those bitter denunciations of the radicals that heretofore came so readily from your lips when they told you that you were leading labor straight into the jaws of capitalism? You laughed when men and women with vision enough to see the reign of terror that was coming went.to jail for speak ing the truth; aye, you laughed and you helped to send them to jail: you ridiculed theem when they said your tinrn was coming, when they told you their persecution was but an omen of what the future held. The, Industrial X\'oikers of the \Vorld fell the sting of the lash on their naked backs and y"ul laughed again; you thought that capitalisn 'was simply removing.one of your competitors. Criminal syndicalism laws were enacted in many states and still you'laughed;. they were only for revolutionists. What do you say now, you misleaders, wheln, in California. your conservative trade unionists are being sent to jail for daring to strike for decent wages? \'What do you say when coal miners in Ohio are being jailed for striking against a company that short-weights their coal? 'What do you say when your trade unionists are being jailed by the dozens at the behest of the steel trust, and others are being clubbed and shot while the governieiint raids their homes and drags strikers from their beds on flimsy anid framned-up charges? What do you say when Ei. 11. UGary. representing the dear 'public' of which you have prated all your life, spits in your face when you go crawling into conlference with him? "Keep out Lof partisan polities," you said. "Punisl your enemies and reward your friemds. We will tell you who they are so you can place 'good meen' in governmental positions." WVhy don't you call on some of those good men now when the heads of the steel workers are bruised and bloody from wounds inflicted by thugs acting under the orders of your "good men" in high office? Don't you see that your dctlri ne of "good imenI in office" and your policy of conciliation Ihas been provel to be a pitiful fallacy when viewed from the sound basis of economic de terminishm? Dbn't you realize now that it is material interest---the best thing for themselves----that governs the actions of individuals? Do you see now that it is only the organized power of the working class that brings victorýs and not 'the cringing com promise that you call negotiations? Do you see where you have led u.? DIo yon see that in this critical period, because of your fatuous disregard of the laws of social development and the lessons of history, the ranks of the workers are divided by craft jealousics and rent by juris dictional disputes at a time when unity is needed as never be fore? Do you see the result of your suicidal policy of vesting all authority in the hands of officialdom and frowning on any discussion in the unions of the questions that really matter? . Do you see that by discouraging the teaching of working .iadss history, economics and philosophy in the trades union ,inovpment that you have done valuable work for the exploiters and kept.4-the minds of the toilers enslaved ? :'Do you see that you have left the workers in a labyrinthine maze' froi which your policies cannot extricate them? Do you admit that your leadership has failed? Ybu ujst, if you have the courage to draw the c(orrect con clusioni from the evidence. We are waiting, 0 Leaders, for a message from you. Tell us what to. do. Give us your solution of the problems that preSs. frm all sides. illl your silwetl' be? Wijll you continue to tell us to attempt to conciliate the murderer.,' of our edmrades? \\Till you contiiiltiet te.ll us to havte fdith iii the good inten tiitns of a state -that you must know is,-next to hunger, the stlroligest ally of capital? \\ill you continue the attempt to enforce the policies that hove brought us to this desperate .pass,- and thereby confess -,irwselves fools or hypocrites, or both? (ºi will you have the h~pnesty and courage to acknowledge vyour mistakes and stand before the world as apostles of the cr't'ed of working class unity? Are you for one big union of the workers and for the aboli limi of the profil system? ;\Answer. you leaders, andi consider well before you answer, for by it you will stand or fall! POLAND-TWO VIEWS. A local norning paper publishes an interview with Profes so,' lioman Podoski. a member of a Polish delegation collect ing data on electrification of railways. ini this country. The distinguished visitor is quoted as follows. Poland is the most stable and the mnost representative form of government in Europe today, he said. We have no Bolshevism in our country, and it is the only country in Europe which can rightly make the boast. There can be no such radical spirit When everybody is working, and they are all busy in Polaind. Paderewski is the most pop .ular maIl iii Europe and the most loved -in our country. Harmino has marked his. role as stAtesman. All parties love him alike. Frtom the Seatl.le .Union Record wx.e publish the following news 'dispatchlt re(eivcil byh mail front their special correspon dent in Colpenliagen: Cop)ehhagen, Oct. (.---(By. Mail.) -A enet'al strike has broken out in Warsaw is a protest against the inter vention and invasion by Polish forces of free Russia. It is also effective in. other parts of Poland. The country is believed to be on the verge of a proletarian revolution. The Polish bourgeoisic, in order to save itself, is attempt ing to convince-the workers that the Jews are responsible for the present- chaotic state of affairs. The amalgamated trade unions of Warsaw have refused to send delegates to the international labor conference to lbe held in Washington, 1). C., declaring openly that the conference is called at the behest-of the capitalistic class and that the proletariat has nothing in common with'. it, and have aplpealed to the international proletariat for unity in the struggle against the common .enemy. There is a serious discripaney in the two accouuts, that merits attention; the correspondent of the Union Record has no particular reason for misrepresenting conditions iii Poland, but Professor Podoski has; xiie fear that the patriotic enthusi asm of the professor. his anixiety to protect his meal ticket, has led him to color' slightly the immediate outlook in his native land. Perhaps the fact that the Paderewski government -is de:. sitous of being financed by the United States is responsible for the professor's straying fromn the narrow path of truth. On the whole, the incident offei's a fair sample of the de pendence that may be placed upon the statements of reprle sentatives of European governmehts that are remaining in power with the help of allied finances. and bayonets. MYERS AND THE PLUMB tLAN. We have beei' favored w,ith a copy of a letter received by Black Eagle lodge. No. 287, of Great-Falls from Senattor Hetiit L. Myers in reply to a communication from that organizatioh asking himn to support the Plumb. plan of railway ownership and operation. Here is the reply: t My dear sir: I ant just inl receipt fiom you, as secretary, and Mr. I udson, as presidenot of your lodge, of a communication under date of Sept. 25, urging support of the Plumb plani for the operation of railroads. I reply to you for both. : I have given your lettel consideration and -I will. say r friakly ti.ha I am inot in favor of the Plumb plan and do not inteind to support it. I do niot believe it to be in the interest of' the people of the counotry. There is now be fore the senate a bill, khown as the Cummins bill, for the restoration of the railroads to their owners and. the operation of the roads uinder goverunment regulation. I think it a niuch better plan and I intend to support it. Yours very sincerely. H. L. MYERS. Mr. J. II. Sherwood, Seo(y, Black Eagle Lodge 287. 1 International Association of Machinists, r reat Falls, Montania. The Cummins bill referred to by Senator Myers contains a r clause maiking it illegal for tilhe railway workers to strike. In y view of the past record of the honorable senator, it is highly probable that because, of this clause alone the Cunimins hill i meets with his approval. n Montana lhior is well reprsentoted in the United States sen l ate----if you don't care what you say. UNABLE TO FORGET. il 'having learned nothing, lie has forgotten nothing.' If the newspaper accounits of the speech made by Mr. Gotn pers before the conventiohi of the United Textile WVolrkers yts tt terday are true, the above quiotation is singuhirly appropriatie; ? ie blanied the attitude of the employers in the confereiibe e upon their attorneys, proving that he still believes that the - hostility of the employin `0 lass toward labor is the result, not of economic condltionlls; ut because certain individuals rep l esent their interests. 's Gopers went out of his way to pay a fulsome and unde if served tribute to the president, speaking of his letter to the conference as "a great document." The president's letter was simply another of his well known compositions, breathing a high idealism, but totally neglecting rehlities. To call it a 11 great document is to say something that is not true. Y According to the president of the American Federation of Labor, fhe only difficulty with which labor was confronted was g the fact that the employers' group was opposed to labor. He r has a ready explanation, and it is the rather novel one that the 's employers themselves are not opposed to labor, but that it is their hired men vwho are to blame. tC No realization of the fact that the nlodern stock company, by which industry is financed, has long ago destroyed the per sonal relationship between employer and employe; not a word t- that would lead us to believe that he knows- this is the twen tieth century; the same old slush about good men and bad 11 m)cn. Wt \e doubt. even alter his bitter experiences of the last few weeks, if the aged president of the American Fderation of l.abor' iill have u .ytil ng to forget. '- · ::. .

WITH THE EDTORS IN THE COLLEGE STATENr it is a platitude to say that the big value of college lies in the fact that It is life in the miniature. But' like most. platitudes it is firmlly enough tiased on fact"to be almost a ..pemise. "The work of the university is p.i successful When it gives a true and ,ecurate picture of life. It develops thb best citizenship when it provides the healthy, nortnal and sane activi ties, privileges and duties of a citi yen.' If, 'in the university life, con litions .are imposed which distort the aims of normal citizenship, then the product of the university will be ab normal. The students will be. grad tated to take their place as narrow and prejudiced citizens. Military: training ,in.time of wa.i is a civic, duty. In.time.of peace it is a prbfession. . If we were to enforce training in any profession upon ouri college citizenry, it would be much better to 'give work' in' medicine, in law or in .journalism; These are professions which are in daily con tact with civic affairs. But of the nilitary profession, the average .citizen . 'cares . little. It touches his life but once in a'geper ation. And in such a crisiS the re sponse of the college man is proven. It was evident, too, that in the re cent war students of the colleges and universities of the country, which had R. O. T. C. organizations, had no advantage in any branch of the serv ice. The training given students of the university in the spring quarter did not teach them to do a "squads right," and was less effective than a week's work in a 'training camp. L Yet that three months of training cost the 'government thousands rof dollars in salaries and equipment. It 'cost the university disorganized classes as a result of' a ruined sched ule. No one gained. An hour a day places. an undue emphasis upon military drill. Since even this time is. ineffective,. 'less tmne would be notably. so. ,T-he one thing to do is to remove it from the university entirely. Military drill fails even in its suc cess. ' If it succeeds in making cOmi peten't soldiers-men competent.. to work at their profession--it is the *orst possible step toward, citizen. ship,. " ' .We do not train doctors in orderd that they may operate on paper dolls. 'We can not irain soldiers and, expect them to be content to do "squads right." It places a tool in their hands, a weapon that can be 'used Only with ultimate bloodshed. It trains them in' a form of.argudment which, necessary as it may be'in meeting a nation which refuses to 'speak softly," yet' is full of dangers to orderly, democratic government. A twentieth of one's lifetime iri military service, and that is approxi t mately what military, drill in the university amounts to on a relative basis, is not a normal part of citizen f ship. As the best step toward re construction which the university can make is the perfection of a sys tem which will make for sane.citizen ship, so must it now remove compul sory 'military drill from its curri 3 culum.--L. of M. Kalmin. MAKING AMERICA SAFE FOR THE STEEL TRUST. Federal troops have taken charge 1 of Gary, 'Indiana :Har'or aid East Chicago, Ind. This means business It is taken to mean the beginning of j the end of the great steel st=ike. There was no' disorder, no violence to justify the occupationi of that dis , trict by United States soldiers.' The immediate reason was' a mna,$ meat f; ing and a parade of the striket.. Both were orderly and peacefnl, butt they served as an excuse for Ivotking the aid of the United Stats war, depart, inent in breaksing thie.strike. One metropolitan eyening paper 6f last- Tuesday'- signifieantly reports that~ the miilltary rule will be: " ike that in the .cctiiled pdtitons of der m!any, wherei'a la'ny of, the federal'iigl diers here ircently t.w service." -That. means that 'while otur .boys learned .in 'Aineriedg -how to brhak Germany.. thley earned.. in Gerntiaby how to break a steel strike lan Anieri ca, a:strike of a half million mhen who produced amminnit'ion for ;the American gbvernmenit, bouight Liler ty bonds and niany Who had but 'the other day takoet off thie tliited States army uniform. And while.t .at. ghastly dirama is bIeing enacted in the Gary -district,, Elbert H.

Satan hiniself would have beeri un able to spring a bloodier joke on our sinful world. The most sickening. part of this tragic force inWashington is the fact that "'organized labot!' the official labor movement, meekly submits to the exasperating humiliation of meet ing labor-crushing Gary as a "repre sentative- of the public." Is the military sutppfession"of the steel strike one of the new 14 points of democracy?-The Advance. WHEN: STUDENTS VOTE..

Although I have tried for over two months to get some ac ,tion on my own behalf in thd way of vocational training, it seems as if the powers that be in Washington are. too busy with other matters than to look after the boys who did their bit.

The romahce of Genevra of° the great family. of the 'Orsini "breaks the haai't." In the palace of the Orsini, in Modena, Italy, there, hangs a pieb ture of-a bride in her wedding gown of the 15th century. The picture hangs over an old Venetian cliest. The roguish face of the. bride has one finger `on her lip. Can you bear to listen to the story? .Genevra, the lovely child of 15, pranksonie as a kitten, on the great day of her nup tials with Count Francesco Doria, was missing from the bridal ban quet.
