1 through til their outgivings a dis
tinction "between their personal and
professional opinions which fairly
brings home to the unions tho spirit
of tho" crime, if not Ua perpetra
tion. Mr. McNamara professed to
regard the dynamiting to death of a
score of Innocent persons as an act
of anarchy. Secretary and treasurer
McNamara Is under arrest as the
anarchist. Mr. Gompers's expres
sions afforded a similar contrast.
He Issued. a declaration that
"organized labor stands tor peace.
Industrial as well as International,
'carping critics to the contrary, not
withstanding. The tollers, he says
are the great burden bearers ot
war's horrors, and pcaco Is the
noblest attribute of mans duty tol
man the world over. In promoting
these noblo sentiments Mr. Gompers
the individual, meets with several
obstacles placed In his path by Mr.
Gompers, tho union official In defer
ence to the declared hostility of the
unions ho was unable to utter from
a platform the sentiments which be
now issues a manifesto. It was
also In bis official capacity that ho
denounced the arrest of the sus
pected dynamiters as "kidnapping,"
the first act in a tragedy contem
.plating the assassination of organ
ized labor. It is the millions at the
command of Mr. McNamara's ene
mies which will convict him. Tho
Federation has aided his union in
every way. No union has been
more bitterly attacked."
In this utterance of Mr. Gompers
the labor official, Mr. Gompers, tho I
individual, is as much out of touch
with tho genera! sentiments of the I
community as with himself. Ills r
voice is for peace, but his policy is j
for war against whatever opposes
the aims ot tho union. There will
bo no response to his suggestion that
minions win suffice to convict Mr.
McNamara If innocenL That would
be a. greater crime even than tho
Xt Angeles explosion. Nosreater
misfortune can happen to a people
than the prostitution of any instru
mentality of government to tho uses
of any faction, whether labor or
capital. Whether or not Mr. Mc
Namara "was "kidnapped," he will
not be convicted unless proved guil
ty. Neither will there be any pro
sumption of complicity of tho union
which will not be held subject to
proof. The case against the unions

pressors and the oppressed ot all
countries, a struggle between tho
capitalist and tho laborer. It Is
this conception which Is at the root
ot tho dynainltlngs and murders and
arsons In the Interest ot labor.
Rightly considered, neither labor nor
capital Is struggling against the
other, but both are co-operating In
the common Interest against a de
ficiency of tho good things of life.
Even If tho strugglo of capital for
profit, and the strugglo of labor for
a wage, be selfish rather than In the
Interest ot humanity. It Is not at
bottom a struggle ot ono against the
other, but rather ot both against
want. It is labor which converts
this struggle, whatever its character.
Into a class struggle, rather than an
economic struggle, by substitution ot
opposition for cooperation. Labcr

By Permission of
the Farmers free list
The District of Columbia Is a
territory set down between Mary
land and Virginia, states that are
pronouncedly democratic In political
faith, and SO per cent of their in
habitants, who read newspapers, are
of the democratic party. Washing
ton. too. is a Southern city, and a
majority of tho newspaper readers,
of this town are democrats. And yet
cery dally paper published ln the
District of Columbia Is republican
In politics tho two leading ones,
tho Post and the Star, intensely so
and tho other two, tho Herald and
the Times, mildly so. In thifc cam
munity a democrat must wait to hear
from New York or Philadelphia, Bal
tlmore or Richmond, or Norfolk, bo
fore he can get political opinions to
euit him,
The following from the Washington
Post is not only extreme in its
republicanism, but It Is fanatic ln its
"The southern farmer never rricd
out against Canadian competition ln
the past nor has he Joined his
northern neighbor in opposing the
ratification of the reciprocity agree
ment The South was not in sym
pathy with tho imposing of a high
duty on Canadian products in the
first place, for the two-fold reason
that it derived no appreciable ben
efit, and then It was contrary to
tho democratic low tariff policy. The
Canadian tariff was Just high enough
to protect tho Northern farmer,
and he alone could be affected one
way or the other by takins the
tariff off.
"These things being true, why
should manufactures used exclusive
ly ln tho South go on the 'farmers'
free list?' Does it profit the farm
ing community along the Canadian
border for congress to take tho tar
iff off of cotton gins, cotton bas-
ging. gunny cloth, and all devices
gether with other articles of taann
fature never seen in that latitude?
The framers ot the free Ust set up
the plea that they would remove the
tariff on articles used especially by
the farmers in order to compensate
them for any losses tney-znight suf
fer through reclprocityv but bow can
they reconcile their words with their
deeds? Besides, as the South far
mers and everybody would share
with the North any gain which might
accrue from the adoption of tho free
list exclusive of the articles above
mentioned, it would look as If the
committee had deliberately gone out
ot the way to give the Southern
farmer all the Northern farmer gets
and untold millions taore."
Now, let me look at that Not for
the moment of Its entire existence
has the G. O. P. ,1-eea natioBil. and
i isiiaj mum Ab vtbj nnaq was cvwuzmi
; and the PayBe-AMrieh neactrosity
I exeeptlesaHy ae. The "ferment' free
list" prepared by Mr. Underwood
the Chicago Tribune
lakes a chunk of sectionalism out
of the tariff. Now listen.
Binding twine, a necessary to the
wheat grower, is on the free list
Why? Because the wheat states are
at the North and they vote tho re
publican ticket On the other hand,
steel tics are as much of a necessity
to the coUon planter as binding
twine to the wheat groier. But cot
ton ties are not only taxed in tho
Payne monopoly, but the tar Is prac
tically prohibitory, made o to swell
the millions of Andrew Carnegie and
the other forty-eight millionaires that
Carnegie boasts he made by mean3
of the tariff on metals. Simple Jus
lice demands that the man who tills
the soil of the South shall be put
on an exact equality with the man
who tills the soil At the North.
Again there is a tarff of 15 cents
a bushel, or 20 per cent ad va'orem,
en corn, and It yielded $Jf,352 rev
enue in the fiscal year 1900. The
corn states are Rt the North, and
tbey vote republican. Cotton is on
the free list that Is, the cotton In
the ownership of him who grows it
In 1909 we imported 80,01,0270
pounds of cotton In tbo hale, valued
at $13,622302, and there also came
ln of cotton "wastes or flocks,"
23.830,958 pounds, valued at 51,211,
518. total SH.Si3.320. A duty ot 0
per cent ad valorem on that vould
bave yellded S2.968.6C4. But the cot
ton states vote the democratic tick
et Everybody, even the Washing
ton Post knows that had cotton been
exclusively grwn at the North, there
would have been a protection duty of
at least 50 per cent laid on it
Now I am opposed to a duty on cot
ton in the bale, but I am 'also op
posed to a duty on grain of every
description. J was present the hot
summer of 1909 when Mr- Aldrich
said to tne south teat .no was a3
much In favor of protecting what
was produced in that section as he
was Inclined to protect the industries
of the North. What a pity it Is that
somo of his Southern friends, who
are so anxious to reach 'the tariff
test did not fling a 20 per cent
duty on raw cotton at him. Just to
see htm take water.
I heard John Sharpe Williams
make an eloquent speech on that
very question, and bad there coursed
in his veins "all tho blood ot all the
Howards" ho could not have done
it grander. He said fie was a eoton
grower, and the duty would put
money In his pocket; but the ser
vant was sot a do& and he scorned
it If every senator were tar resign
who votes to swell his own personal
sains by means of the taxing power.
I fear a search warrant would fail
to discover a quorum rof that body.
And why should sot the cotton
piaster be put os sa exact equality
with the grain grower? "There is
bo reason to morals, and the sole
reave 1 politics to Uutt'oae Ilea

at the South and Is a democrat and
the other Is a republican. It Is well
understood that co citizen of the
South Is eligible to the office of
president or vice president It is
known ot all men that ..of the bil
lions pcid In pensions to Northern
soldiers the South cheerfully contri
butes her share, though the present
republican secretary of tho treasury
characterizes the thing thus.
"We have an enormous Civil war
tension list which Is not a credit to
us. It has lost Its patriotic aspects
and has become a political list, cost
ing the government about. $60,000,000
per year."
Nor Is that all. When the South
was prostrate, devastate, helpless, in
digent, congress levied an Illegal
tax on her cotton and collected" $63,
000,444 of it Not one cent has
teen refunded, though everybody
knows that had this tax been col
lected from the corn grower he
would have received It back to the
uttermost farthing as soon as its
illegality was recognized.
Read that editorial from the Wash
ington Post again, study it and
master it What do you conclude?
Why, that the South ought to be
grateful to congress that her pres
ence in the Union Is not proclaimed
as an impertinence and considered
as an intrusion.
What is the question here? The
government xercises the taxing pow
er for the benefit of a certain class
on (he Canadian border, that Is to
fav, nil tho peoplo.jro taxed for the
benefit of a few people.- But a re
publican president smites that in
justice and seeks ; reform of it
The Washington Post argues that
this graft is a vested right and if
It be taken from the class it bene
fits, something Just as good must be
substituted for. it Read that second
paragraph from the Post I hae
quoted, again. Was ever such nai
vete before
What do we have? The "farmers"
free list gives to the grain" grower
free thrashing machines. That Is all
right because he Is a republican;
but it is awful to give the Southern
planter a free cotton gin. Why? I
can conjure no reason unless it be
that be is a democrat It is proposed
ln this bill to give the cotton planter
free bagging; but in the same
measure free sacla are provided for
the wheat grower. The sack is an
absolute necessity to the one and
tbe bagging an absolute necessity to
the other.
No, what's the matter is this: Can.
adlan reciprocity is tbe tocsin to
summon congress to do tbe "pro
tection principle" to death. Hence
the rage.
