WAR WHAT FOR?" By Geogge
it. Kirkpatrick, Is the greatest book on economics by any living American author. It is a book that fairly bristles with sharp points that puncture the hide of capitalism and makes this old monster squirm and hunt cover. No "Dare-Devil Dick" writer ever ima gined such "blud curdling" episodes as Kirkpatrick describes as true his tory, the history of the befuddled, the betrayed and slaughtered working class, on many a goary battlefield. The class who had nothing to gain but misery and death, or if they sur. rive, long hours of grinding toll to pay the war expenses 375 pages, cloth binding, Illustrated, $1.20 a copy.

While. the garment workers were returning to the shops the ear.y patt of the week. Acting Chief Howe could not neglect the opportunity to deliver another cowardly blow. Monday night 1:l pickets were ar r, sted and spirited into the Central police station upon the theory that they had beaten a strike-breaker, who aferwards died. No warrants were issued and when Attorneys Katz and Ibawl.y and Harry Thomas went to the station Tuesday morning *o bail the men they were infurmed that th, garment workers were not in jail Lat, t Ihe, attorneys began habeas elr us prct' edings and when Howe and his ad\Isers heard of that move they rel .sled the prisoners. Some of the latter claimn that they were. given a taste fI" the third degree and Rowe is being denounced in unmeasured terms. The strikers Ibeh,eL that the man who was beaten was attacked by some of his own kind of people, as a num ber of fights have taken place among the strike breakers during the past 19 weeks. There are still nearly a thousand strikers unemployed, a large number of whom are blacklisted. but all will he cared for by the international un ion until they can secure work in this city or out of town. c'loakmakers of New York are out strong for the Socialist party. They are holding mass meetings in order to elect Ren Schlesinger to the State Legislature in one of the down town districts. They are attacking Tam many Hall in a manner that is giving Boss Murphy a pain. Coo(ks Get iinto Line A real. Ilve, cook has been discov ered who talks socialistic. He is none other than Fred Ebersing. president if the Chicago union, who writes to the Daily Socialist to complain that cooks ase compelled to work seven days a week. He wants to know whether Berger will Introduce a bill In con gress to provide a six-day week for all wage-earners, and declares that the only hope of American workingmen now is "to see more Bergers In con gress." This is mlgthy encouraging news, fellow citisens. Heretofore we were of the opinion that there were only two members of the Hotel & liestau rant Employes' Union and Bartenders League of America socialistically in clined, the same being a bartender in Los Angeles and a waiter In San Fran clsco.

Wars are more and mor, coming to be fought mainly for busin,.-s con siderations to protect a cn'ession that has bee ngiven to some corpora tions for opening mines or factories In a foreign country, to close or open a door for trade, to seize some covet ed market from a rival. Women's geat business is rearing the new gen eration, and they are coming to real ise that their business is the most im portant of all. and should not be sac rificed to any other. It Is a cheering sign when the women of the Latin nations, so long held in strict subordi nation. grow active* and emphatic .n their protest against having their sons taken away to be "food for powder."

Great retsaleness is apparent among the employes of the Midland railroad, as It is shown that a gr,.tt number of men are being daily din charged for little or no cause. It is claimed that old men are replaced by men who were loyal to the company during the recent strike. Are we goingAto be free men and free women? In a land of pltenty is thehre not enough for all?
