West Virginia Justice.
A recent case in Squire Rogers'
court at Huntington. W. Va., forcibly
illustrates just why the workers are
coming more and more to fear and
hate the capitalist courts.
It appears that a Mr. Kidwell. a
veteran stationary engineer, three
weeks ago went to the Wilson Cream
ery of Huntington and inquired for
work. Mr. Wilson hired Mr. Kidweil
and agreed to pay him S2.00 a day.
After working a week or ten days,
Mr. Kidwell informed Mr. Wilson that
he had secured a better job. and that
he would like Mr. Wilson to get
another man as soon as possiDle
Mr. Wilson flew into a rage; told j
Mr. Kidwell that he would not pay
him for what he had done, and that
he would law him through the courts
and lick him every time lie met him. I
Mr. Kidwell worked one more day for
this courteous gentle man. took his
tools and went to his new position.
Being unable to secure his wages
from Wilson, he appealed to Justice
Rogers for aid.
Mr. Kidwell secured th* services of j
an attorney and the case was lin>r-j
oughiv threshed out. It was shown;
to the court that Mr. Kidwell whs aj
competent engineer with a regular:
Va. license, and it was lurther j
proven that ther? was no agreement j
between the parties for Mr. Kidwell j
to work ; ? 1 1 v time on probation. That !
is the workers sidr of the controversy;
according 10 Mr. Kidwell.
N<?\s enters the man of a little nam- i
}
ev uiio the court with hold and pom- 1
pous air and coolly i/lforms the learn- j
ed justicr that he has made a rul?. j
by w hich he says he recognizes all his j
new engineers as apprentices for the!
first ueek.
With a wave of his hand the wor- j
thy justice dismissed the case and |
ordered Mr. Kfdwell to pay the costs.,'
(And Blaekstone turned over in his j
grave.)
SEND THE JUDGE.
Judge Windes of Chicago. sentenced
Jacob Jacobson. also of Chicago, to
ten years in the penitentiary. Jacob
soil hart served four terms, though
but 2 5 years old. It seems that he
was a social failure. But how about
the judge and the laws? With four
long periods of complete control over
Mr. Jacobson, having him shut up
where they could preach, pray. sing,
exhort, teach or torture, they failed
to change the man. If Jacobson fail
ed. so did they, and they propose to
hide their failure in the penitentiary.
The world would soon be a much bet
ter place if it were arranged so that
a Judge ?r a lawyer should accompa
ny every "criminal" to prison and
serve as a cellmate. We know too
much about men and prisons from
outside, and study neither with suffi
cient care from the inside
The final meeting of the General
Labor Day Committee will be at 3.00
P. M. Sunday afternoon in the City
Hali. Complete arrangements for all
committee work is to be perfected at
this meeting. In order to have a
Labor Day celebraion successful in
every respect all members of all com
mittees must be present.
3 P. M. at city hall.

Chairman Labor Day Committee.
Luther Burbank has produced a

duced millions of spineless men.
Workers as Legislators
The Wiscansin Federation of Labor
at its recent state convention, voted
$50 to each of the seven Socialist
members of the State Legislature,
claiming that with these representa
tives on guard at the State Capital
it was unnecessary to employ lobby
ists to look after labor's cause, and j
that the state federation hud really !
saved more money than was voted j
to the Socialists. The members of
the Wisconsin Legislature receive
$500 for their services and must re
main in session nearly six months, '
This makes it haul for members of
the workingclass to have to depend
on their salaries for the support of
their families. The state of Kansas
pays $150 to members ?f the legisla
ture. At the same time the average |
Sheriff gets from $3,000 to $4,000.
Great is the intelligence of the voter, i
Radical? Yes!)
J. A. Way i Ji.NI>
You say I am radical. Well, what
of it? Are you afraid of a word? A
radical may be right or wrong. Are
you not as radical in your efforts to
maintain the present iiiillionare-pau
p? r system as I am to change it for
better condition? Now about radi
calism. If revolutionists are shown j
w her in u man cannot be too radical j
in advocating right then the ques- 1
tion is. are we right or wrong? And!
would a system that abolishes pover
ty and crime be more desirable than !
the present? Would it be right?
Would it not be right if every man or;
1
woman who desires labor that they {
may create wealth equal to what j
they consume, were given liic1 oppfjr-'
tunitv. and on whom no non-pruduc-j
ars should lay iribute? Is it right 1
that men who procuee nothing shall j
live on those w he produce? And if so, :
to what extent? Where is the exact1
limit that divides right from wrong? i
If a man produces a bushel of pota
toes why is he not entitled to all the
consumer pays for them with the
least possible expense that they can
be delivered to the consumer under
the most economist conditions? If
workmen build a wagon for $10, why
should the farmer pay $40 to $75?
If men build sewing machines for $5
or SB (which thev can) why should
others have to pay $50 t<? $100? I
claim that this is wrong: that taxes,
rent, interest or profits or any other
scheme that enables one set of men
to live off the wealth created by others
is wrong. It doesn't mutter whether
people believe a tiling or not, fact
is a fact and their opinion upon it
does not change that fact To assume
that one set of men has h right to
profit olT of others is to assume the
right of a slave owner to qrofit off his
slaves. When men are used by other
men for profit, whether under the
name of rent, interest or what-not.
they art- to the profit-receiver just
the same as the slaves were to their
master. The masses have been taught
these things are right just as their
forefathers were taught ta believe in
the divine right of kings, but their be
lieving it does not make it right.
The masses have uever studied these
problems and they do not know so
well as those who have. They do not
know the wrongs injure them and if
they did they do not know that a sys
tem can be created that will bring
about a remedy. Jesus taught that
system and He lived that system ?
not in reference to a world to come,
but in this material world. Pure
souls cannot exist in wretched, pov
erty-eaten bodies and before purity
can be enthroned and intelligence de
veloped to receive the teachings of
the Savior, the conditions here must
be changed so humanity will live
purely. This can never be done un
der a system of competition ? of rent,
interest and profits.
I
(By Covington Hall.)
The union and the state have noih
i ing in common. The union is of the
i
working ciass; the state is of the
capitalist class. The union is based
on man; the state on property. The
1 union is a brotherhood: the state is a
| pluuderbund.
I From the very moment when the
first union sprang into existence the
state began the relentcss war that
can only end in the destruction o f
union or state, for in these two social
organizations are bound up the life
and death, the hopes and ambitions
the welfare and the ideals of the
democracy and the despotism, of the
working class and the capitalist class,
one of which must rule the world, for
rulership cannot he devided. It was
because Industrial Unionism saw this
enmity, the enmity between the union
and state, so clearly, and because it
so boldly proclaimed it, and itself the
form of the future society, that it has
met with such vinous opposition from
the state and its creators and hang
erson. The masters know as well us
do the workers, and better, it seems
where the power ol the workers lies ?
where all power lies to-day ? in in- j
dustrial solidarity, in union, and that |
h union of the working class means n ;
new order of society, which means '
the elimination of classes from t }ir
world, which means tiic destruction
of the state, wherefore the masters j
encourage all things that tend to ob- j
scure the main Lsue.- that tend to
blind the workers to the destiny of.
the union, which is to overthrow and .
succeed the state.
Already, by sheer force o! econo
mic evolutitn. the shell of the state,
is cracking in all directions and they
who resist the attempt of the clasb
eonscious workers 10 build up Indus-,
trial Unionism are resisting that which
alone can save the world from
"anarchy" as the capitalist never
dreamed of in his most frightened
definition of thai yvorld.
That the ruling class reeogui/.es |
that a sooial crisis is near at hand is j
borne witness to by a thousand facts,!
i
as witness the silence of their press j
j in regard to all the recent strikes and
j struggles of the workers, their at-!
j tempts to revive the dying spirit of |
patriotism; their "philanthropic" and
"religious" activity: their battle call
to racial hatred; their wild, despairing
and desperate effort to create "a I
I man on horseback" out of the saw
I I
{dust hero. Theodore Roosevelt, t lie j
hypocritical pleader for "the family" '
and "the home." beautiful things that
cannot exist for the workers as long ,
i us he and his kind are allowed to
| dominate the destiny ot the race
j And the crisis that is on us in not
a "political" crisis: it is not an indus
trial crisis ? it \& a social crisis.
We are near the topmost crest of.
j an age of evolution? we arc on a!
: battle of destiny ? the armies of De
mocracy and despotism, no matter
whether the living-dead who cumber
the earth like it or not, we are closing
| in on each other for a finish-fight, the j
| prize of which will be the control of j
; the labor-power of the human race by ;
; the victor.
It is because the true, the revolu- ,
, tionary union seeks to control the
labor-power of the workers, and sub- j
i ordinate? everything else to that end
' that it awakens the hatred of the ,
property-guarding state, which cannot ;
help but see in this latest child of
| evolution, the revolutionary industrial
! union, an enemy that means its ruin
if it cannot be crushed
i As to which is to be crushed, the
property-guarding state, or the man
protecting union, the working class.
; ami the working class alone, can say.
But every day and hour this truth
is more clearly and sharply seen ?
the union and the state have NOTH
| ING in common, and as the union
! grows, the state must wane, for the
| new is born by a revolution OUT of
I West Virginia Disgraced.
The people of West Virginia are
different from the inhabitants of other
states, and the disgrace brought upon
us by those who occupy places of
power is keenly felt among all decent
people.
The trouble with West Virgina is
that public opinion is stifled by the
most subservient press outside ot
Russia.
All the yellow dogs of West Vir
ginia journalism yelled and snapped
when a Senatorial investigation was
? ordered, and when the proof of West
Virginia despotism was exposed to an
; outraged country the best these fetch
: and carrys of capitalism could do
! was a cowardly attempt to besmirch
! the character of honest, plain, out
I spoken Senator Martine of New Jersey.
If the newspapers of West Virginia
had kept their subscribers informed
1 us to the condition in the coal fields
I
? of West Virginia this state would not
1 now stand disgraced before the world.
The Bflldwip guard, the midnight
< assassin, the anarchistic coal baron
; and all such stay away from a state
where there is an honest, unbought
press.
A contemptible form of petty per
secution that |ias been hissed out of
almost every state in the union ex
cepting West Virginia was revealed
in the circumstance surrounding the
discharge of Comrade Franklin. Presi
dent of Huntington Trades Council
from the barber shop of a Mr Davis
uii Ninth street recently.
A few large minded, pious gentle
men differed with Mr. Franklin in
political matters and thought they
might convert him to their way of j
thinking by influencing the owner of j
the shop to drive Franklin into the!
street without a Joh. At the request !
of certain christian ('0 gentlemen j
Mr Davis discharged Franklin, giving
as his reasons the fact that several of !
his patrons had complained to him ofi
Franklin's political ideas and had. in
effect, threatened to boycott his
shop. The principal objector was
Mr. Rosensteel, a leading light in the j
big new white Methodist church now !
building on Fifth Avenue, Huntington.
What personal satisfaction Mr. Rosen
steel could get out of taking the ;
bread and butter from Comrade
Franklin's family is beyond our com
prehension. We will now be led in
prayer by Bro. Rosensteel.
THEN AND TODAY.
Soifie years before the French rev
ulution the more extravagant sports,
among the nobility of the country
used to amuse themselves shooting
at the peasants. It was great fun.
but they killed so many a law had to
lie passed limiting the practice.
Today the peasants of England are
not shot for sport, but they are pen-]
ncd up in cities where they are killed
by disease. Meanwhile Americon
noblemen are said to be paying, this
year, between $2, 000. 000 and S3, 000.
000 for the privilege of hunting birds
on the lands that have been withheld
frum the people. There is not much
difference, after all the years.
the old and not by an evolution of
the old INTO the new ? "the expro
priators are expropriated." Indus
trial democracy means, if words mean
anything, the seizure of the natural
resources and the machiners of pro
duction by the working class, which
must mean the socialism of industry
which must mean the end of the
reign of poverty over man, which
must mean the fall of the state and
the reorganization of society on a
social basis, around the union.

AGENCY FOR CORRECTION
OF PRESENT ABUSES.

I It is not infrequent that wu hear the
j so-called 'friends of labor" ullucie
j sneeringlv to the Socialist party as
I an organization dreaming of the
?j "sweet bye and bye," and one too
! v a true ami shadowy in its ends and
aims for serious consideration by men
plunged in the struggle for daily i
bread.
Although the Jinal goal to which the :
Socialist party is unfalteringly mov
ing is the emancipation of labor by ;
the overthrow of the entire protit sys
tem of private exploitation and cor
porate plunder, and the substitution
of a co-operative system of produc
tion and distribution in which the'
utilities wottid be publicly owned ;imi
democratically managed, to the cml
that each worker get not only an op- >
ponunify to labor but the full social
equivalent of his labor, yet so mighty
has thi' organization waxed, and so j
powerful lias become its press as an
avenue of wide-spread publicity that
the Socialist party today stands in the j
forefront as an agency for tin- oorree- !
lion of present abuses.

According to your report <>n
West Virginia Gov. U. D Hatfield
faitlifully promised that our organizers
and speakers should have their rights
of free speecii amplv protected any
where in this state ? tiiat lie would
guarantee this. Your report says:
"The Governor unhesitatingly de
clared ihat workingmen had the right
to organize and that he would protect,
them in that right to the extent of
his power; that Socialists had iiie
same ri^ht of free speecn and f r* '?
assemblage and to th* full prou-ftion
ol the law.
Your report further makes the dec
laration that "W. Va. miners and
other workers can now organize and
hold meetings free from interference
of the private thugs and sluggers oi
the mine owners, whom Gov. Hatfield
is pledged to do all in his power to
entirely suppress."
