SCAB DEFINED
I I
j Tho word scab is one of the vilest
I opithetn that can bo hurled at a hu
Man facing and the one who rightly
I ticserves the appelatlon Is of the same
quality A scab says Webster Is a
mean low paltry follow This defi
I nition Is general in its application but
may bo specifically applied to one
lit any walk of life In looking over I
tho Industrial field wo can llnd but I
cno class of fellows to whom this i
definition will apply In all its full
ness and they are those who act as
the fence or the gobetween with
which tho loecherous employer hopes
to rcduco to penury and abject ser I
vility tho honest workingmen and
women Those who by an offer of 1
less wages would take the employ
ment from another Those who cut I
prices and underbid to such an extent I
that it affects the well being of tho
laborer and for what Not that it
Js of any benefit to them for It is only
an Injury But they are like the pro
verbial dog who wouldnt gnaw the
bone nor let anyone else gnaw it
They do not want to advance or im
prove themselves and they aro will
ing to be used to compell others to re I
main on the same level with thorn
They arc willing to be used as tho i
tools through which honest manhood
and womanhood may be compelled to
forever pay tribute to the bloated plu i
tocracy They are the lick splltles
who would rob infancy of Its nourish
ment childhood of its pleasures youth
of Its innocence and old age of its
restful repose If there Is a place hot
ter than the Jnferno of hades we
feel sure that they will be presented
with free tickets to the boxes closest
up IThe I
upThe subjoined quotation is an ex
tract from a book written by Dr
Frank Julian Warne and is a splen
did definition of the union labor term I
scab and a description of its be
ginning Dr Warne said
Ostracism is a stronger social
force In maintaining a high standard of
personal conduct than most of us real
ize It means banishment or exclus
ion from social intercourse or favor
and is usually employed by a partic
ular group against members of its own
class or craft Its effective weapon
Is some term of reproach coined for
the purpose Lawyers for example
who do not come up to the standard
set for that profession by Its domin
ant group are ostracised and termed
shysters So It Is with the medical
profession Physicians engaged in
questionable practices which the dom
inant group denounce are ostracised
by the more reputable practitioners
with the reproachful term quack
The same social force is at work
among tho Industrial classes de
clares Dr Warne Union men he
gays set a standard as to wages and
conditions of employment In a parllc
ulnr Industry and those workingmen
w who fall below that measurement In
offering their labor for a less price
are ostracised and denounced as
scabs Whether lie group be doc
tors or lawyers or orlclngincn what
ever it adopts as the standard of meas
t uring conduct along particular lines Is
sooner or later taken up by the broad
er social grouping In the community
and accepted as Its standard of Judg
ment along those linos This is Just
as true of a community closely Iden
tified with an Industry tho livelihood
of whoso members It may be depends
upon the industrys activities In which
a dominant group usually members

trial standard This explains the at

LABOR DAY
Labor Day is approaching rapidly
Are you preparing for It I dont
mean union people only but everyone
The committee arc trying to make the
Labor day celebration this year a cel
t ebration of the people for tho people
and by tho people And in connection
with the FourState Fair they are of
fering a program that will surpass
anything that has keen attempted in
the past The fun will begin early
in the day and will be continuous un
I til the grand finale We are ouduav
tiring to make the day of special in
terest to the children and wo desire
that tho parents come early bring
the little ones and make tho day long
o bo remembered by them The
V morning sports beginning at 030
will bo exclusively for the boys and
girls t > o bring thorn and let them havo
the time of their lives
We must not forgot that the boys
and girls of today will bo the men and
women of tomorrow and the fathom
anal mothers of the near future So
il becomes the duty of tho men and
women of today to start them right in
life help them to conceive the highest
possible Ideals and teach them the
f alue of a determined effort to at
V tllu them Teach them the groat
> aluc of an unblemished character of
unimpeachable integrity of sturdy
manhood and womanhood roach
them Bclfrelianco and selfrestraint
and to be determined to attain as near
perfection In all their undertakings as
it Is possible for humanity Teach
them the value of doing with their
might what their hands find to do
and of doing it now Teach them the
value of Improving overy moment for
there Is only one minute In tho world
ai a time and that Is always talon
away before another is given
This Is one of the things for which
the labor movement was organized
and It is ono thing for which the un
ion people aro constantly and Insist
nll working the complete cduca
lion of the child and had it not been
for the efforts put forth In that di
I rection Instead of the 3000000 chil
dren now in the mills and factories
there would be nearer three or four
times that number So If you would
help In this great work bring the
children to the Fair grounds on the
GUt of next September and we will
give them at least a short lesson on
the Importance of doing their best and
I doing it NOW
j In talking with somo of the mer
chants We find that at least some
arc reading our department and arc
coming to realize the importance of
I the distinction between sweatshop
and prison mado goods and goods
made by union labor Our article on
tho Union Label of two weeks ago
has had a good effect on some and
they are beginning to see their rcspon
I
slbllity for any contagious infection
that might be due to tho handling of
i that class of goods Wo had become
somewhat discouraged at the seeming
Indifference manifested toward our
i feeble efforts but we shall alto cour
I
age and go on realizing that wo are
doing at least somo good even if those
I who are or should be most vitally in
terested are not doing what they
I should
I
If you arc too busy with your pleas
I ures to attend the meetings of your
local dont complain If your wishes
and Ideas are not carried out Tho
officers nor tho members arc not mind
readers so If you do not tell them
what you want at the meeting you
have only yourself to blame for what
I you call failures on their part
I
I Do you want your label supported
Then support tho label of others
I
A man who has never belonged to
a labor organization has some excuse
I
1 for purchasing nonunion goods and
patronizing nonunion stores restau
rants barber shops laundries etc
and cannot be blamed for taking the
place of the striker in the same meas
ure as a member of a union taking a
union mons place But when a union
man purchases nonunion goods
spends his money with nonunion cs
tablishmonte etc he Is a traitor to
unionism and is the real scab Labor

HOW ORGANIZED LABOR IS RAIS
ING THE STANDARDS OF
WORKINGMEN
By the Rev Charles Stclzlc
It is doing it first through the labor
press Probably no force Is greater
I In development of the cause and to no
one feature Is organized labor more
Indebted than to the labor press of the
country With its record of progress
Its constant urging toward better
things through active propaganda
methods its lessons in technical train
Ing thus making of Its readers better
workmen its appeal to belter living
its earnest attention to the family life
and welfare those are some of the
factors which make of the labor press
a power of good
I Organized labor is raising the stand
ards of workingmen by fighting the
battles of all the people It is carry
Ing with it even the lowcst and most
degraded Every victory won for the
men and women at the top means a
higher level for those lower down
While the trade unionism may for a
time belong to the aristocracy of la
bor ho soon makes of that aristocracy
a democracy for all
Organized labor is raising the stand
ards df workingmen by compelling
I them to think rapidly and to speak
clearly The trades union movement
I
j has developed a company of speakers
who are abundantly able to present
I
tho cause of the toilers This is con
stantly being demonstrated at the na
tional meetings of labor bodies where
statesmanship of the highest order is
demanded and where some of the ad
dresses would easily rank with the
host that are delivered in the confer
ences and conventions of other na
tional bodies
Organized labor Is raising the stand
ards of workingmen by the education
of its members in special meetings and
I lecture courses and in supplying spe
I cial courses of study One of the most
I significant movements in this direction
Ifs tho correspondence course recently
sot up by the International Typograph
ical Union intended for journeymen
and apprentices Tho possibilities in
such work arc almost limitless and
no doubt organized labor In other crafts
will follow the example of the print
ors
I Does any one know this poor fel
low asked the Good Samaritan ad

gathered at the scone of the accident
His mind poems to have become an
absolute blank and
Trust olilciul Trust official

WEAKFISH
In abundance and popularity the
weakfish Is known to more anglers of
the Atlantic coast than any other fish
caught in salt water
The weakflsh swim in largo schools
near the surface and are very vora
I cious destroying the young even of
their own kind It IB abundant along
the entire coast except when interfered
with by the bluefish its bitterest en
emy both arrive in the vicinity of
Now York about the same time but
tho latter being the swiftest swim
mer and more savage fighter possibly
Interfores with the food supply of tho
weakfish and In many instances whole
schools are driven away where they
would otherwise bo plentiful Somo
seasons we find them scarce through
out Its rail go but this has not hap
pened for several seasons indeed
they have boon remarkably abundant
and wonderful catches have been re
ported this season particularly off the
Staten Island shore and great South
Bay Jamalca Bay and City Island
waters The weakfish Is very erratic
In temperament and movement one
day It Is taken on a certain tide tho
next day It bites on another LIdo
r sometimes It will bite well on windy
daysand at other times on calm days
It Is extremely shy and sensitive to
vibration and sound splashing of
oars dropping tho anchor too force
fully have a tendency to drive them
all away Thunder will send them to
the bottom and perhaps two days will
Intervene before they will again rise
to the surface If sharks are in the
vicinity you may put up tackle for the
day Sometimes tho fish aro caught
near the bottom then again they are
found about midway between it is
supposed they go where food Is most
plentiful It is this uncertainty of lo I
cating them that constitutes tho great
est charm In fishing for them But
when once located and chumming is I
properly begun then begins real fish
ing In earnest Any angler who knows
how to go about It may land from ten
to fifty fish during a chango of tide
DR ELIOTS CHOICE OF BOOKS
DICTATED BY PUBLISHER
By Herbert Howe Bancroft
The friends of Dr Eliot must bo
disappointed in the explanation
he gives regarding the list of books
ho makes out for educational pur
poses It was done at the request
of a publishing house he says and
for a pecuniary consideration as well
as for another motive It was simply
a book speculation on the part of tho
publisher and he would naturally in
dicate the line of work from which
he would like the selection made
and in the sale of which he would de
rive the greatest profit
There should be variety enough to
suit all tastes Arabian Nights
Pilgrims Progress and Franklinn
Autobiography for light reading
dips into poetry and philosophy with
I
a little romance for the refined with
meditations on religion and the souls
destiny for the more somber minded i
The Ditto andShakospearo he
says wore omitted from the list at
tho suggestion of the publisher The I
reason of courso Is thatmost people
have read the Bible and Shakes
I
peare
I It would thus appear that the selec
I tion was not made wholly by Dr
Eliot but by Dr Eliot and the pub I
lisher and not for educational pur
poses entirely but for educational
purposes and pecuniary profit
Again the list was originally In
tended to be a 50 book list Now any
good edition of Shakespeare would
I
take five volumes the Bible would
take three volumes and there would
be eight gone out of the 50 i
I have handled many hundred tons
of books but 1 have never yet seen a
popular edition of the Bible in three
valumes and I have seen many good
readable editions of Shakespeare In
ono volume
Not moro portitent Is the slatemct
that these books were omitted be
cause every one Is supposed to have
read them Have not most people also
read tho Arabian Nights and Pil
grims Progress And is the selec
tion made mostly from books people
have not road and as the best books
in literature are the ones mostly read
and the ones mostly read must not be
Included in this collection I fall to
I sec how Dr Eliot and his publisher
nro going to embody the best books
in their list
No mention Is made of Homer in
this explanation though Homer is
not more read than Pilgrims Pro
gress and most scholars would pro
nounce it the more important of the
two for educational purposes

WHAT ARE WAGES
What are wages Wages are that
part of the product of labor which the
capitalist pays to the workingman out
of the proceeds of the vorklngmans
own products Say that a worklugman
produces 4 a day and that 1 Is paid
him for his labor That 1 Is taken
out of the wealth that he himself pro
duces and It is kindly given back to
him by the capitalist who pockets the
other 3 That is on feature of wage
Another is that wages are the price
of labor In the labor market and that
the same footing as any other com
modity It Is governed by tho law of
supply and demand Its price the
same as that of anything olso hair
pins shots or castoff clothing is de
toi mined > by the law of supplv and de
mand Iho more there Is of those the
1
cheaper their price Likewise with
labor Under tale capitalist system
I labor Is a commodity in the market
The workingman must sell his labor
I which he gets paid for with the thing
called wages at the market price If
I the supply of labor Is so much larger
than the demand then instead of get
I ting his one dollar out of the four
that he produces In the Illustration
I above given he may get only ninety
five cents If the demand for labor
goes down further he may get ninety
cents as the price of his labor and if
It goes still further below the supply
j still further down would go the price
of labor i e wages Tho price of
labor may sink tol dont know how
low a level
Where Will It Stop
Some of you may say that the work
ingman has to live and there Is a lim
it No there Is no limit The only
I limit that there Is Is a limit to the
rapidity of the decline Wages can
I not fall from a hundred cents to ten
cents but they can fall by easy gra
gradations
We have for Instance this story
about the Chinese that In some placeo
they live only upon the rats they
catch that In other places their
stomachs having been squeezed still
moro they live upon the tails of rats
that others ate and that in still other
places there are Chinamen who live
=
upon tho smell of tho tall of the rats t
This may sound like a joke and yet j
there Is more truth than poetry about
It
I In the history of Franco wo have It
reported that large masses of the pop
I ulation lived In tho eighteenth cen
tury during the ancient regime upon
p herhsi the price of which for the wholo
I year would not have been five francs
The human stomach is like an India
rubber ball you can squeeze It and
squeeze it and squeeze it and you can
shave off and pare off the wants of the
workingmnn till his wants are merely
those of the beast
No Wages Under Socialism
Wages then are tho part of the
product of abor which the capitalist
allows the workingman to keep and
which the capitalist does not steal
I along with tho other three parts
Under Socialism there will bo no
I wages under Socialism the work
Ingman must get all the four dollars
I which ho produces
I What aro the tilings which compel
the workingman today to receive
wages
First The capitalist class owns all
the things necessary to produce with
it holds the land the railroads and
the machinery with which to labor
The working class owns none of these
necessities all of which It needs to la j
bor with hence It must soil Itself
SecondThe reason why tho wage
worker must put up with so small a
return Is that under this system he
Is not treated as a human being
Christianity to the contrary notwith
standing I
Tho capitalists are refined cannl
I bals they look at the workingman in
i no other light than a horse in fact
in a worse light they will take care
of a horse but let the workingman
die Labor is cheap and Is treated
that way under capitalism Under So
cialism standing upon that high sci
entific plane we see a higher moral
ity We see that labor should not bo
treated as a commodity It should not
ho treated as shoos and potatoes and
I hairpins and castoff clothing but as
a human being capable of the highest
Intellectual development So treating
him tho wage worker cf today be
comes a part owner in the machinery
of production and being part owner In
the machinery of production he lhcl
gets the fill return of his labor h1 J
then free from the shackles that com
pel him to accept wages he becomes
the boss of the machine whereas to
day he is Its appendage
Under Socialism we dont need pota
tohugs to raise potatoes Some peo
ple think that the wageworker class
I must carry the capitalist on its back
As well say that you must have potato
bugs or you wont have any potatoes
If you remove the potnto bags you will
have all the more potatoes remove
the capitalist class and you will have
he whole of your product there will
not then be any potatobug i c cap
italist to sponge up the bulk of your
product Weekly People
I THE MARCH ONWARD
Successive Revolutions Have Over
thrown Different Ruling Classes
I
The Worker Will Remove the Last
Oppressive System
From tlmo immemorial all the hur
dons of life great and small both so
cial and economic have been borne by
the lowly The great masses of tho
common people the toilers and the
spinners the hewers of wood and the
drawers of water have had to bear
the cost of everything to produce
everything and to get nothing In re
turn except a bare subsistence

dition was accepted as the only

thing else let alono teach It was both
criminal and blasphemous Thero wore
always a select few with ability cun 1
ning and Impudence enough to take
advantage of tho credulity of their fel
lows so that they could impose upon
them and take possession of every
thing that their labor produced These
rogues claimed to be supernaturally
credentialed and threatened eternal
punishment of the most terrible kind
to all who doubled or questioned their
claims The workers were assailed by I
day and by night kept in continuous
subjection In abject fear and In the
most brutal ignorance A class of self
appointed superiors Intent upon keep
ing the many In slavery and perpet
uating their own power terrorized
them by day while another class for
the same reason and with as much
truth In their claims made their nights
hideous by peopling the darkness with
terrible phantoms which they alone
could propitiate
THE BUGABOOS
These two classes were Interdepend
ent upon each other and carried on
their Joint Imposition with wondrous
success The overlords who ruled the
I masses by day punished with the ut
most severity all who dared to object
to either their divine right or the
sacredness of the calling of the other
class who terrorized the minds of the
masses wllh demons by night This
secoud class not only insisted upon
punishing in the most brutal way all
who doubted their claims to supernat
ural powers and privileges then and
there but condemned them to everlast I
ing damnation In an eternal hereafter
as well I
As long as these two classes suc
ceeded In keeping the masses In Ignor
ance they were perfectly safe with an
excellent chance of perpetuating them
selves and the continuity of the ease
and affluence their impudence had
given them But time works wonders
and a change came at last Many
things contributed to it and although
little probably Insignificant in them
selves all contributed to the great
awakening Wonderful forces were at
work and wondrous things were ac
complished
Forces That Effected the Change
The great forces that effected the
change and wore put in motion were
not intended to affect the welfare of
the workers In any way yet It eventu
ally transpired that they wore tho
most Important factors without which
the present conditions would have
been impossible Had these great
movements not taken place labor
would sllll be In the same mental
darkness and cnlrammcleil physically
In bodily and mental slavery as it was
before the awakening that came with
the sixteenth century It was then
that the present really began From
thai lime real progress was made and
modern thought and freedom had their
birth
The sixteenth century witnessed
two great revolts against despotism
clerical despotism in on case and In
tellectual despotism in the other The
revolt against the first culminated In
the Reformation that of the second
ended with the Renaissance Without
these modernism would never have
come into being
Whon the seventeenth century is
reached it Is found that another great
revolt took place a revolt this lime
against the dogma ot a divine right
of kings Herein lay the true germ of
democracy for as long as the claim
made by tho king that he was divinely
I chosen was left undoubted and unchal
lenged the people could never come
into power
The eighteenth century saw the
ideas of the seventeenth century cone
to n logical conclusion In the lurid
glare of tho wonderful French Revo
lution and of the sanctuary was tho
rights of man the most potent of all
the forces set in motion for the ad
vance of labor It way Irresistible and
although a reaction took place that
lasted until the early part of the nine
teenth century its Influence is still
felt and is strongly in evidence In all
modern coffrl
The seeds sown by the early rcvolu
Uonlsls bore fruit nnd labor became
possessed of the franchise tho mighty
lever that is to move everything away
that blocks Its progress or stands In
the way of its advancement Tho
worker after securing political free
dom Is now bent upon securing it upon
the industrial field also Tho twen
tieth century will undoubtedly mark
his advent into full and complete eco

RICH POSSIBILITIES OF WESTERN

rich and arable and capable of being

is on the line of the proposed exten

and I could not but picture to myself
the wonderful transformation that Is
in store for it during the next decade
when American capital which Is sure
to follow the opening of tho railway
takes hold of it What opportunlllos
for Investment it offers And now is
the time to strike Investors who
take hold of this land now while It
can be bad at a merely nominal price
will reap fortunes in colonization later
In five years at the furtherest prob
ably much soonerthe whistle of the
locomotive will awake the country
from its long night of darkness and In
ertia to the daylight of progress and
prosperity These jungles will bo
transformed into orange groves fields I
of corn and bailey and alfalfa will
spring up rich harvests of bananas
pineapples and the hundred other prof I
Itable crops they are caablo of will
be gathered and from the nearby
hills will come as fine coffee as trop
ical America can grow
Perhaps this Is too optimistIc a view
to take but we shall sec I have tray

BUYING MEXICAN LAND
An acquaintance of mine purchased
from tho government a tract of theso
I lands approximating fifty thousand
acres Whon he went to claim his
I properly ho found It in possession of
an old Mexican who claimed ownership
in spite of the government grant Tho
Mexican had lived upon it all hIs life
and it had been In the family for many
I generation It was stocked with sov
I oral thousand head of cattle under the
charge of cowboys who carried re
volvers The Mexican and his grown
sons also carried revolvers When my
acquaintance demanded possession
the Mexican Informed him that the
land was his title or no title govern
ment grant or no grant and ho intend
ed to hold It against all comers and 1
he and his men would shoot anybody 1
found trespassing upon It My friend j
discreetly retired to the land olllco anti
demanded to bo put In possession of
tho property for which he had paid 1
Hero he was Ipld that the government
had undertaken only to sell him a good f j
title nnd not to put him in possession J
Such a tlllo had been delivered to hlmi
and the government could not in adrti
nlon attempt tn dispossess trespassers 4
He must do that himself but he must
not kill anybody In doing It Perhaps
the courts could help him Now a
man may be born live out a long and
eventful career dlo and he forgotten
while the machinery of tho courts hi
getting ready to be put into motion
The result Is my acquaintance is the
owner of fifty thousand acres of good
Mexican land that ho cannot set his
foot upon and of which he may nojter
get control V t
I cite this as a warning to would bo J
investors It is a wise precaution to 1
first learn before accepting land office 1
titles whether the land they wish to
buy IK free from tho encumbrance ot
belligerent claimants In possession 1
My acquaintance did not take this pre
caution Ho purchased in good faith
