Ordered, that the hoard do now ad A A A ■ II m 1 M ■ ■ W 1 W 1 | | [To the People of Holmes County: To alleviate the hardships of the present world-wide break-down of our | capitalistic system—proven everywhere by its inability of furnishing re munerative employment tc idle millions of willing hands—will require the ] sincere counsel and assistance of every citizen. It becomes, therefore, the duty of every man and woman to contribute their mite to a united effort to devise means by which the present nomic paralysis may be relieved and a recurrence of its cause prevented. In every state in the Union, the people are weary of the sophistries and unfulfilled promises of the Democratic and Republican parties, demand ing aloud to know why- in the midst of abundant crops and of the inex haustible products of oar forests and mines, with plenty and to spare on every hand—why men, women and children, willing to work, should have to long for the necessities of life! For years, the Socialist party has offered the only practical remedy for the prevention of these periodically recurring industrial depressions, which have been in the past, and are today, among the prolific methods, employed by the captains of unearned wealth to enrich the few at the expense and suffering of producing millions. By means of a world-wide conspiracy on the part of corporate wealth, aided and abetted by a subservient and subsidized press, that information is purposely withheld from the knowledge of the great mass of the people. Therefore, in the exercise of our duty as citizens and of the right of free speech, the Executive Committee of the Socialist Party iu Holmes County deems it its duty to lay before the people and make plain the true facts and causes that have carried our country into the present anomalous condition. In furtherance of that duty the Executive Committee ha3 invited ■ eco GEO. H. GOEBEL, A Speaker of National Reputation, to address the people of Holmes County At Lexington, Wednesday, July 29th. At Coxborg, Thursday, July 30th, To the end that the truth may be known, the committee appeals to all regardles of party or sex, to show by their presence at these lectures that they are capable of laying aside the prejudices of the age, and of weighing in the light of reason,—the Creator's greatest gift to man,—the deductions, which science and common sense have demonstrated, to be the only remedy for existing conditions. As Socialists, we appeal especially to the ladies of this county to lend their ear to a presentation of above facts. We appeal to woman as the greatest sufferer, in the terrific struggle for existence now convulsing every country and nation. We appeal to her, as the tireless slave of her environ ment, whose labor is never done and who, tied by the influences of tradition and custom to a condition, and resigned to the believe, that an All-Wise Provi dence intended her to be the mere object of chance, to pose in the gamut of life, from the role of a butterfly of fashion to the drudge in the home of poverty if not shame. Barred by legal restriction from raising a voice in defence of the rights woman toils today with no choice of compensation except such, a» she may find in the giddy life of fashion, or the mere ne cessities of life, as the wife of an average man. At last', to be man's mere econoomic dependent, where she might be his equal his queen, j To woman, Socialism offers the happiness and pleasures of youth, the comforts of a home securely her own and the contentment and peace, inci dent to the secure possession of the comforts and necessities of life, in old age. When, therefore, we appeal to the intelligence of the ladies to grace these lectures with their presence we do so, for the purpose of affording them the opportunity to compare the elucidation of the principles of So cialism with the misrepresentations of those who now hold them in bondage that they may exploit woman's every effort, blight her life and the lives of. coming generations. Men and women! Your assistance will destroy an economic system that enslaves your daughters and destroys the manhood of your sons. Socialism depends for its financial support on the monthly dues of its enrolled members and the voluntary contributions of those who are in sympathy with its principles. We therefore request all, who desire to assist our effort to bring about a change from present economic conditions, to enroll their names or send their contributions to the secretary of the Socialist Executive Committee, at Lexington, Miss.
