EUGENEVDEBSLECTURE
Delivered to a GoodSized Audience at the
Opera House
HE DISCUSSES ECONOMIC QUESTIONS
And Telia of tho Hnriliililiiit Entnllril
Upon tho Laboring Men hy the
Combination < i Cnpltnl
Tho opera house was well Oiled yester
day nttornoon to hear tho lecture of Eu
gene V Dobs tho great labor leader and
his utterances were cheered to tho echo
The houso was not In a very Inviting
condition for an audience It having been
badly drenched tho night before during
tho fire and It was conBeouontly damp nnd
disagreeable and tho falltug walls from
time to time across the alleyway where
tbey were feolnc nulled down as a matter
of safety caused two or thrco startling
olarms that Interrupted the lecture
In his address which lasted about nn
hour and thirty minutes Mr Debs com
menced with Tirlmltlvo time and quoted
Jotforson as saying that no government
should be either extremely rich or ex
tremely poor There should be social
equality but neither class nor casto In
thoso early days the working man io
colved adequate romneusatlon on exactly
what he produced AVork was then dono
with primitive tools Thoy cost but n tow
dollars and every laborer could easily
eocnre hU own tools Implements of occu
pation from the surplus from his labor
Tho American laborer was thon nn Inde
pendent man Then oamo tho Invention
ot labor saving mnrltlnory and began tho
great class struggle when the little shops
cxnuadod Into vast factories
In tho early history of the Republic
to which he referred there was not i sin
gle millionaire nor a single tramp Tho
millionaires had como later and tho word
tramp had been coined to ropresent hla
antithesis tho most deplorable and mal
nnoholy llguie in Ui ontlro horoscope of
human noeletv a rebuke to our much
vaunted Christian civilization As ocono
vnio machinery Increased so Die army of
unemployed labor Increased As the ma
chines sunorsodlin human labor became
more perfect competition Increased and
wages decrcniod
lie referred to tho difficulties of secur
ing employment under existing condition
No man could appreciate tbeso dlfllrultlea
unless he bad been a stranger In u strange
land looking for work going from door to
door begging for permission to earn
enough to keep his family from starvation
Under present conditions It was nlmost re
garded as a rrlme to ho poor and the
man poorlv dressed Is discriminated
ngalust and tabooed by society no matter
how respcetablo he may bu Ho Is a
social outcaRt because his olotbos nro
shabby If you nro not well dressed In
thoso days sorluty Is against you but
Many a man who Is poor in money is rich
In principle A poor girl sleuls a rich
girl Is slmiilv the victim of kleptomania
Tho sDoakor told how Christ was tho
frlcud ot the poor and roclted the story of
tho Magdalen
This country ho said was a vast bat
tlefield with tho rich nrrayad against the
poor tho strong acalnst thn weak nnd yet
they refer to tho present situation as the
eurvlvnl of tho fittest There Is ovnn a
struggle of the laboring classes among
themselves dcsulto the Ulbllcal Injunction
that wo should lovo our neighbor as wo
lovo ourselves Tho utesont day rule of
business Is might against right cunning
agalnt l connivance Laboring nwn are
continually seeking to deprive oach other
f employment
Ho referred to John D Rockefeller ni
a man who had It In his power to fix the
price of products and regulate the scale
of wages Ho keeps labor In subjugation
He absolutely controls ono of the chief
necessities ot life
Up to the tlmo machines made their
ndvent It n comparatively easy for
every man to earn a living Tho child of
the laboring man today feeds tho machtno
and tho machines starves tho child Tho
raachlno was tho first enemy to tho
working man by getting Into the hands
of capitalistic corporations who used them
to reduce tho wnces of laborers The ma
chine had even Invaded tho nrlntlng of
fices and were now doing work that It was
thought could only bo done by baud and
Edison says that within twenty years all
tho work ot tho world will he dono hy
machinery
There was a time when ono man by hand
tnado an ontlro pair shoes and ho knew
exactly what tho orollt ot his labor
would he Now shoes nro made In facto
rlcs nnd a pair of shoes before It Is com
pleted passes through seventytwo hands
nnd tho profit that formerly went to ne
man must be divided no Into seventvtwo
Darts
Under the present system our women
and children arc driven Into factories and
bomos are broken up because It requires
tho combined labor of an entire family to
support tho household Homes are now
but adluncts to fartorlci Men will Insist
that the agitation of the labor question
Is senseless That all men arc equal and
tho cquntrv Is a free one for men to do as
they Please This all sounds very pretty
but at the same time our children are be
coming mere coes in the wheels of In
dustry Our children get tho munificent
wage of 9 cents per dav In the cotton mills
of the South and 8 conta Dor day In furni
ture factories making cane bottoms for
chairs while men working in coal mines
Ket 60 cents ver dav
The jsneakcr referred fo Mm rapid
growth of trusts tbirtvnve having been
formed during the past month and you
cant break up those trusts by any statu
tory enactments Tbey arc tho natural
crowth of the present competition system
Dut these trusts will eventually be ab
sorbed hi the people and we will then pass
from capitalism to socialism The force
of present economic conditions will bring
about a condition of socialism Rockefel
ler Is dolns more to advance the cause
of toclallsm than all the socialists com
hlnod Competition Is bolng absolutely
destroyed In the concentration ot trusts
The middle classes onco referred to as the
great bulwark of this country are being
crushed and are pissing away Small
business concerns are being absorbed by
the trusts The recent formation of the
tobacco trust recently threw 2000 travel
ing men out of employment That trust
Hke all others fixes the nrleo they pay for
tho jaw material as well as the price at
which thov sell their finished product
Pursuing the subject ho pointed out how
tha nyotern was being gradually extended
Into new fields The operation of the
farra mortgage ln eliminating the small
farmer was doscrlbod Next ho showed

he has been well known to tho general
public Mr Dehs was born In Terro
Haute Ind In tho autumn of 1S55 nnd at
the ags of lb years began his work ns a
railway employe In tho Vandalla car shops
Suuu after he obtained a pasilloil As lire
man on tv freight engine In which capacity
he served same years and soon attracted
attention In tho councils of thn Ilrotber

had become a member He was 32 years
old when that organisation made him

with tho State sponsors General Gordon
from tho platform called out to her In the
great audience of thousands to como for

fortunately she was not present Comrndo
Carey and his most estimable wife showed
her much attention taking her on ex
cursions with them If Miss Dolgado as
pinsor uf Dick Dowling camp didnt re
ceive much honor and wasnt tho re
elpicnt of much attention ns such then 1
fell to bo a Judgo of such matters The
camp has reason to bo proud of ihelr little
sponsor as she reflected great credit upon
the position
To Major and Mrs Jack Harby the
camps as well as States delegation have
much to bo grateful for They proved
editor of Its msgailne nnd from that day j emselvcs our friends entertaining us
forward ho hat been a Jhjjider He was I ro > lly Indeed Charleston has cause for
afterwards mado secretary nnd treasurer j fJlclng at the acquisition of such people
< the organisation and saw It grow to
National proportions
In IS92 Mi Debs founded the American
Jtnllwny union which was the first or
ganization In the railway world to admit
to membership every employe from the
section man and engine wiper to tho con
ductor and engineer Its central Idea
was complete nnd universal organization
Under bis guiding hand it speedily reachod
colossal proportions Its first great strike
was called on the Orent Northern railway
Tho rend was successfully tied up from
St Taul to the Paclllc ocean and tho
comnsny forced to restore tho wages of all
T
as Major and Mrs Harby as citizens nnd
Houstons loss Is Charlestons gain May
their shadows never grow less
All In all the reunion nt Charleston
was a glorious and complete succsss and
can never be excelled by any other city
They are evidently of a refined hospi
table chivalrous Southern stock
There was not much necessity for dele
gates at that reunion as the votes were
taken by States nnd not by camps
Our delegates were composed of solid
that was considered dabgcroUB vas pulled
down by tho fire boya with ropes
Thero has been no explanation as to
bow tho fire originated nor Just exactly
Where It started Of course thero are many
conjocturcs nnd some rumors that may
load to nn Investigation but nothing defl
nlto Is known and tho Incident may go
down tho annals ot time as a mystery
Why there was no water pressure Sat
urday night when there were thousands
of dollars worth of property being destroy
ed Is ntso another matter that will proba
bly bo Investigated
In glvlug a list of thoso who suffered

Sweeney and Coombs opera houso was

on tho Interior was so badly soaked that
some of It fell yestordny afternoon during

results of which pre stilt fresh In the
memory of the people In the Pullman
matter Dobs offered to submit the ques

emphatic refusal ordered the members
ot the union to handle no Pullman cars
The battlo was on and within two days
scarcely car ot any description wns mov
ing between tho Mississippi valley nnd
lho Pacific coast Within a short time the
commerce of tho Nation was practically
paralyzed An appeal was finally taken
to the courts Debs refused to obey tho
courts decree preferring to so to Jail
for contempt
Mr Debs was the Orst leader In the
labor movement In America to offer his
liberty as a protest against the rule of
corporations His remarkable ability as
an orator has made hlra the natural cham

his unfaltering mbvement marks him as
