Organized Labor and
The Dynamite Suspects
T F the men arrested under charge of complicity in the Los Angeles
dynamite arrested are, in fact, prominent unionists and if they
dynamite outrages are, in fact, prominent unionists and if they
are guilty of the crimes laid at their door, then they" have done
the cause of organized labor in America the most grievous injury in
its history. That cause is just, if justly followed. If it comes to
be identified with violence and outlawry it is doomed.
It goes without saying that union labor, as a whole or in any
considerable part, does not and will not countenance these savage
and abominable methods of the dynamiter. This fact should be
obvious, for the reason, if there were no other, that the adoption of
such a policy of violence would be suicidal for any cause in whose
aid it might be invoked. No human institution is strong enough to
set itself up as an enemy of society.
t The general public will, no doubt, acquit organized labor as a
body of approval of these crimes and will await the trial of the
suspects in the orderly process of the courts without prejudice, sus
pending judgment until the evidence is produced and tested. On
a casual glance at the circumstances as they have been presented
for public inspection by the detectives, things looked bad for the
men under arrest. They are said to have been found in possession
of high explosives and the requisite apparatus for setting off infernal
machines by clockwork. With these articles were other deadly
weapons, which innocent men do not need in their business.
Such appears to be the general tenor of .the case presented by
the detectives and the police, but the" orderly inquiry under rules of
law and without prejudice must be awaited before judgment can
be pronounced upon the matter. -
In the meantime it behooves organized labor as a whole to
enter anew the most distinct repudiation of violent or criminal
methods and to make it clear that such practices will be sternly
discountenanced by all men who have the interests of, the cause at
heart. If the suspects are guilty, the labor leaders should be the
first'to demand their punishment and thereby demonstrate that there
is neither sympathy nor approval for such methods among the labor
unions.
The organization of labor has accomplished the greatest good
for humanity by improving the conditions of labor and of living "for
ill. people who toil. Now, if the leaders and the rank and file do
not in the most positive way discountenance violence and separate
themselves from outlawry, their cause, which, justly followed, is the
cause of humanity, will have been given a grievous and damaging
setback. It is probable as well as desirable that this course will be
followed. As, the matter is understood here the typographical union
has offered a large reward for the arrest and conviction of the
dynamiters, and this offer is apparently representative of the best
sense of organized labor.
THE ratification of the reciprocity agreement with Canada by
the house of representatives is a gratifying fact. The opposi
tion of the small'band of belated standpatters does not count.
I They are out of touch with the sentiment* of
the country, and they no longer represent
the republican party.
Mr. Taft is the leader of the- party, and
I he fully represents its best. and most enlight
ened sentiment; besides that, lie carries on worthily the traditions
handed down by Blame and McKinley. Uncle Joe Cannon and
John Dalzell may rage, but the results of the last general election
show that standpatism is a discredited cult.
The opposition worked heaven and earth to persuade the
farmers that reciprocity would hurt them. It is the old game of
humbug that has been played off for 30 years on the farmer. The
plan was to include in the tariff duties on agricultural products that
looked fine in print, but were of no possible benefit to the farmer,
the price of whose wheat and wool and cotton was fixed by a foreign
market under free competition and without any sort of protection.
On the other hand, the farmer paid excessive duties on every
manufactured article that he bought. It was a onesided bargain, in
which the farmer paid for all.
The Game
of Humbugging
the Farmer
NOT only in San Francisco but in other parts of the state the
J new revenue system is causing a great deal of confusion and
- doubt. In Los Angeles and other cities that put charter
"| limits on municipal taxation they are con
fronted with a diminished assessment roll," due
to the elimination of the property owned:by
corporations, and the only alternative seems
. to be an arbitrary horizontal increase of the
assessment .scale of values. This should make no very material
difference in the sum of taxes to be raised, because the state tax
levy, which" has averaged from 35' to 50 cents on every $100 of
property, will be lifted from the back of the general tax payer, but
the thing causes a condition of uncertainty and confusion that
requires a lot of explaining. .
■" *In Stockton, for instance, the situation is " complicated by
increased municipal demands for expenditures, which, if allowed,
would add greatly to the difficulties of the situation created by the
Confusion Due
to the New
Tax System

change of system. The Stockton Independent makes these sug
gestions :
The businessmen of Stockton are naturally alarmed at the great
increase in the'assessed valuation placed uapn business property by
the city assessor. That officer is not primarily responsible for the in
crease. The estimates for the current year call for $338,058.40, and he
must so assess property that.it will raise that amount. If the business
men would look over'the estimates' they would not blame Assessor Ken
yon, but would see where the cause of the increased burden "is and where
skillful and careful pruning might save the necessity for such great in
creases in the assessments. ' /' "i .-*
It should be obvious that the present transition period demands
a rigid and'severe pruning of estimates, not only in Stockton but
in all other cities in the state, if we are to escape the creation,of
awkward, deficits to hang for years about the necks of tax payers.
Moreover, it will be necessary to amend those city charters that do
not fit the requirements of the new plan for the collection of revenue
for the state government.
STATE SENATOR GATES of Los Angeles still chews the cud
of bitter recollection over his failure to split the state university
**-^ in two parts, one for the north and the other for the south.
He vows to heaven that he will do it yet.
"They will not," he says, "be able to prevent
us from getting a real university in the course
of the next two or three years."
■ It- appears, then, that the original propo
sition advanced by Gates was insincere—a humbug, a stalking horse.
It was pretended then by Gates and the others that the design was
merely to finance a technical school at Pasadena, not intended .to
be a rival to the University of California. Now Gates comes out
flat footed for "a real university.""
Still Trying
to Split the
University
All California should rejoice were it demonstrated that the state
could support two "real universities." Up to the present time the
tax payers have found it a severe burden to support one real uni
versity, and any man who has followed the financial history of the
institution knows that it lacks much of completeness,' for the simple
reason that it is always short of money. It has been a constant
struggle to obtain the needed appropriations, and i this not because
of any niggard spirit in. the legislature, but simply because the
money was not'there. ; . - -
"A lame school is a waste of money. .Gates wants to make two
of them- His political vision is bounded by his own "deestrict." '.
PEOPLE in California will be glad to learn 'that the Gould
■""system of railroads, including the Western Pacific, will not be
* . gobbled by the same interests that now control, most of our
other means of transportation, and the further
assurance is given that the system is in the
way to.be amply., financed by powerful .inter
ests quite capable of taking care of its
requirements. No doubt the Gould system
has been stiff-red to run down for want of such support and needs
rehabilitation, but this is now in the way to be supplied. •-,
The Western Pacific road has become an important factor in
the commercial and industrial life of California, The -road is new,
and as usual in such cases, has experienced some mishaps during
the last winter, but these appear to have been overcome, and the
line is in the way to do business. It is much needed, and the competi
tion in service that it supplies will greatly promote our industries.
Hitherto central California has been' practically a one road
region, and we were compelled to take what that road was pleased
to give us. Its service will be improved by competition. Besides,
there is plenty of business for all the roads.

I WANT to tell you of a New Year's, or rather day after
Christmas resolution which I made and am actually
finding great pleasure in keeping.
.Inspired by the day after Christmas fatigue. and the
many days after Christmas financial sufferings, I made
this resolution— that every month of the year 1911 I
would buy or make one Christmas gift. \
That means that next Christmas is to find me with
11 of my minor gifts bought and stowed away. ''
The advantages of this scheme I am already finding
are manifold. . ' .
For one thing, it gives me an opportunity to take
advantage of: sales and reasonable prices in general.
My January, and February purchases were two beautiful
pairs of silk stockings which I bought for just half what
I should. have to pay for them next fall. .'_,_"'
My March purchase was some lovely handkerchiefs which I bought at i
handkerchief sale very reasonably. All through the year there are sales o1
one kind and another of which I mean to take advantage.. -
Again, I do not find an occasional bit of embroidery any tax, whereas th<
Christmas rush of work makes me fairly hate the sight of a needle. For tht
April gift I am embroidering a little jabot.
Then again, of course, having the financial strain» diffused in this waj
ought to be a great advantage. My* only fear is that in the "affluence of th*
thought of those 11 gifts safely packed away,,l shall feel that I can spend
a bit more than my wont upon my other gifts and thus end in the same dirt
straits of poverty as usual. I sadly remember one Christmas season, whet
a week before Christmas I lost a purse containing $14 just as I was about
to make two or three final purchases. ■*", The purse fell into the hands of a
marvelcusly honest personthink of it, only a week before Christmas^
who sought me out and returned it to me with the dire result that in the ex
uberance of the spirit and sense of wealth;produced by this release frorc
abject poverty, I spent not only the $14, but the major part of $10 more
which was to have tided me over to payday. I have fears of a similar
catastrophe, but I am hoping to avoid it by stern reminders to myself of my
own bad example.
Not only am I preparing the gifts, but I am even wrapping. them up in
the customary white swathings and red ribbon. They might look a bit odd,
even erie, to anyone who did not understand, but' as for me. I'm sure no
bride to be gets any more delight in peeping into her chest than I do into
the shirt waist box where these Christmas, 1911, gifts are bestowed.
Forgive me for talking so much about myself. You see, am having
so much fun out of the idea that I simply have, to pass it along.
