opposes the profit system and that the
liquor traffic creates more employers
with the greatest net profit to the em
ployer than does any other industry in j
the world? The liquor interests of the
country are the bitterest enemies the
socialist movement has and I have my
first saloon man and rounder to meet
who favors political or any other kind
of freedom for women.
You will find that all people who op- j
pose the prohibition and socialist move-1
ments also favor the white slave traf
fic and wide open towns in general.
This being the case we find the allied
criminal element solidly organized
a<rainst all reform but the reformers
hisorganlzen With several little parties
in the field of politics which make a
clean walkaway for the stronger scien
tifically organized gangs. I think you
would do well to join forces with the
prohibitionists and make a strong ap
peal to the women voters that the vice
element of the land are fighting. Hoping
you will think this over and make your
fight from a strong moral point of
view, I am yours respectfully.
Dear sir—Answering your favor, the
socialist program includes a remedy for
all social evils. The profits system of
imlu-try is the foundation stone of
both intemperance and white slavery.
Our party will consider no '"joining of
forces," for any reform or petty gain.
Socialism is the force in politics today.
It says that the wage labor system of
industry must go. You are not consist
ent in making so great a cry against the
sale of liquor while consenting to the
sale of life. The bodies of men, women
and children are on the market under
your competitive wage system. Some
can not sell at all, others sell for less
than will buy their bread. How can
you destroy the liquor traffic or even
the white slave traffic —with the neces
sites of men and women driving them
to hell and the cupidity of masters lur
ing them on?
Nevertheless, our party is THE party
of temperance as it is the party of pur
ity and peace. Our last national ion
] vention passed a resolution calling upon
all municipal socialist administrations
to close the restricted districts. Social
ist Mayor Duncan of Butte, removed all
the dance hulls and saloons from the re
strieted district and otherwise so cut
down the revenues of the place that two
thirds of the resident* therein moved
out. He also refused fines from fallen
women, with the result that "Big Busi
ness" lost interest in the district as a
tax-proilueinn agency. <>ur puity is
open, dome in. Fraternally yours,

MINNIE E. PARKS.
OUR CANDIDATE FOR STATE;
Mrs. Minnie K. Parks, nominated for
treasurer of the state of Washington,
by the socialist party of the state, was
born in 1871, in the little village of Ver
ona Mills, Xew York. When 11 years
of age, the family emigrated to South
Dakota, a long hard trip in those days,
and some years were spent in enduring
the hardships and deprivations and ac
quiring the experiences of the pioneer
ing ii new and unknown country. She
took part in all of the activities of
farming life on the frontier. Plowing
with oxen, breaking colts, stacking
grain and all the other hard out-of-door
work which usually falls to the lot of
the men and boys, formed as large a
part of her course in the great univer
sity of life as the supposedly less stren
uous occupations which are left by com
mon consent to her sex.
Limited M were her opportunities for
schooling, she managed to acquire suf
ficient knowledge in that line to enable
her to successfully fill the position ef
country school teacher. Later she re
moved to Chicago, where she found em
ployment as a commercial artist and ad
ded much to hor already varied experi
ences iiH a worker. About five yeara
ago she came to Seattle and has since
been active in the affairs of the party
there, also in other organizations of
As a worker on the farm and in the
city she has had a typical working
class experience. She has suffered from
the lack of necessities and has been
compelled to see her children suffer,
when all about them was an abundance
of the good thing! of life, and ihe was
willing and anxious to be allowt'd to
perform any amount of labor in order
to obtain only a small portion of them.
She hat a well grounded knowledge of
the economic cause of tuch condition!,
which are the usual lot of the workers.
And she knows the absolute necessity of
thorough organization among the work
