When you grow disheartened and
think that the progress towards the
Socialist goal Is slow then consider
this fact A hundred years ago
strikes and organlza lions of labor
were not known The mass of tho
people had no voice in law ranking
Many of them could not oven road
How much then the people havo
reallv gained
Recent cabos stated that 50010
shipbuilders were on strlko in Eng
land and In Germany there was llfcHy
to be a lockout and strike involving
one million and thirty thousand metal
workers and electricians As the
press fittingly remarks The outlook
Is extremely gloomy
They point to the saloon in the
slum district and they blame the sa
loon for the slum One would think
that the saloon was started and the
slum grow up around IL A 8 a mat
ter of fact the saloon camo to cater
to the devitalized inhabitants of the
slum And tho slum Is ltho direct
result of the proOt system
The slums are caused by tho pal
aces Big residences result from big
profits and big profits mean low
wages and long hours of labor Low
wages and long hours mean that the
workers must crowd together In tene
ments and fahaclm must live In collars
and attics must have insufficient food
md unsuitable clothing
When men work from ton to four
loon hours por day their vitality Is ex
hausted they have not tho propc food
to ciiperalo their worn bodies thoy
breathe the poleonoun air of tho tene
ment and falling to recolvo the na
tural stimulant of sunshine air and
food thoy turn to the false stimu
lant of drink V
V Remove the Profit I
Socialism offers tho only euro for
the drink evil Tnkp tho profit out of
whisky and you take tho hell out
of It Wo would not hope to do away
with the slums by closing the saloon
but wo would do away with the sa
loon by closing the slums by making
it possible for every man to havo a
comfortable homo and comfortable
surroundings If lh0 higher standard
of living decreased tho demand for
alcoholic beverage the laborers GUI
ployed would merely be transferred
to some other lino of work where they
would receive the full product of their
h EJven as long hours and low wages
result in Intemperance so short hours
and high wages loud to temperance I

counts I
In his repot I to the chief of staff
Col Weaver bemoans the uniriendlv
attitude of the Unions towards tho
militia oven the teachings of pa
triotism he complains are of no
effect even when II is shown that
the sole purpose of the militia is the
maintenance of law and order the
workingmen very generally decline to
Join the national guard
Truly the worklq man is an unre
generate and is unregcneratable So
spineless Is his sense of patriotism
that he declines to kneel down and
kneeling hug the guns that have rid
dled the breasts of his brother work
Ingmen at many a strike for a living
wasre so obtuse is he that he falls
to identify the law and order which
suits his exploiters with tho law and
order that suits him and his exploited
class and he declines to shoulder a
gun under the coinmand of a politi
calmilitary agent of the employing
Hopeless workingman whose skull
is BO thick that nil 9iih preachments
of patriotism and law and order
leave him untouched unallurable for
the iniltla
This ssoild be a bal enough count V
in the capitalist indictment of tho
worlIngman Col Weaver follows
the first with a second After having
graphically depicted the hosilltv of
the workers towarls the militia and I
having quite pointedly Indicated tho
reason thorefor the Colonel expresses I
the opinion that the way to overcome
the hostility of Unions for the militia
is to establish a State Constabulary
upon which to devoive the duties of
I smashing strikes or In the Colonels
own words of preserving law and or
der whereupon the Colonel opines
that be militia not belli for some
time called upon to shoot to kill
worklngmon on strike the workers
j change their opinion will look upon
tho militia as a force of national de
fense and will acquire love for and i
forthwith inop again into the old
ranks of the National Guard In other
words eel Weaver takes the work

I idiocy would hEll nlong the trick of
making the militia look Innocent just
I long cuough 1n entrap Lho workers

mOl United States gunboat Hornet

at this city lIS making preparations I
to clear this port at 10 oclock to
morrow morning for Central Ameri
can waters
The gunboat is being closely watch
ed by Unitod States marshals Re
ports in Central American circles here
say the Hornet is to aid in a revolu
tlon to be started In Honduras by
fem mer President Manuel Bonilla
The Hornet is expected to clear un
der command of Captain C Johnson
She has hurriedly taken aboard
about two hundred tons of coal and
provisions for thirty days
Nicaragua Is Bucy7
That the visit here of Dr SaLvador i
Castiillo former ministergeneral to I
AYnshington from Nicaragua has
something to do with tho hasty clear
Ing of the Hornet and that the ex
pense is being borne by him it is re
It Is also reported that the former
P73sldcnt Bonillu to New Orleans I
several weeks ago was for the pur
pose of securing a suitable craft that
would be of assistance In striking a
blow at the Davllla government
The vessel according to her cap
tain will clear for Cape Gracius with
a crew of six firemen four sailors
and several officers At the lime of
Bonlllas visit the Hornet was owned
by u New Orleans firm which bought
the boat from the government last
year It was about this time that the
vessel was purchased by a Mr Beer
who owns five schooners in the Cen
tral American trade
Now In Trim Shape
Repairs were started at once on the
Hornet and she Is now in trim shape
She Is to take the place of the
schooner in the trade according to
her owner although he said the Hor
net Is subject to sale either before
she clears this port or after sho
reaches Central American waters It
has been rumored that President Es
trada of Nicaragua would lend assist
ance to Bonilla It also is reported
that General Lee Christmas is expect
ed to lake an active part In the pro
po ed revision
Tho attention of federal officers
was called to the rumors and United
States Marshal Victor Lolset with a
force of deputies has kept a close
watch since So far no violation of
the federal law has been detected
Bonilla Knows Nothing
At the same hour Manuel Bonilla
former president of Honduras said
emphatically he had no knowledge of
the intended movement of the Hornet
If the Hornet has sailed or Is pre
paring to sail ho said you cannot
make it too plain that it Is not In
tho Interest of General Bonilla The
report that the Hornet Is connected
with a revolutionary movement which
I am to lead against tho present Hon

ging frantically with her hand sho I
finally moved enough dirt to OX pOlO
his nose and mouth enabling him to
breathe She noticed ho was only
able to draw abort gasps and at once
concluded that It was the pressure of
the dirt against his chest that pre
vented normal breathing She wont
ed desperately with a shovel for 10
minute and cleared away enough dirt
to relieve the pressure on his chest
The gallant work of rescue had com

the laborer was still a prisoner She
finally mustered enough strength to
summon some men who were passing
They completed the rescue and re
moved Young to tho Charon home

Navarro Protects His Men
The alleged Inactivity of General
Navarro as previously reported was
due to the fact that he did not wish
to pursue the socalled pronuncmdos
Into the mountains not desiring un
necessarily to jeopardize the lives of
hIt soldiers They followed a strate
gic movement which would draw the
enemy out Into the open for an en
gagement rather than pursue them In
to an Impregnable stronghold
The country in that vicinity Is the
Switzerland of America and contains
many deep ravines high mountains
and recesses such as in former years
offered safety to bandits and afforded
such adequate protection that fifty
men could effectually withstand an on
slaught of a thousand soldiers I is
lecausc of the rought nature that Gen
01 al Navarro chose to await the time
when he could encounter the enemy in
open country
In my opinion the alleged revolu
tionary movement Is now effectively
stamped out Of course a minor guer
illa warfare may bo carried on for a
short time but the ultimate suprem
acy of the government forces is un
