Here's a call for you, my brother, to the sleeping host of Toil, To the strong men in the workshops and the strong men on the soil; Here's a call to them to waken and to come into the fight, Hurling 'gainst the murdrous masters all our power and our might! Here's a call to men of Action, to the Militants of Toil, To the strong men in the workshops and the strong men on the soil; Here's a cry sent out to Labor over ocean tide and plain To war upon the Liberticides for liberty again ! Here's a cry to every Rebel, every Fighting Son of Toil, To the strong men in the workshops and the strong men on the soil; Here's a call to every Unionist, regardless of his Clan, To join in the struggle for the freedom of a MAN! SHARKS AND SEAMEN. A Shark may do anything to a Seamen and it's alright. Where the law don't help out the Sharks, and in most eases it does, well, the Seamen are meat for the Sharks, anyhow. And it' all men who won't organize can expect, for in an organized world the unorganized are helpless. Ships said to have nothing but cement bottoms are said to be regularly sailing out of the ports. Sev eral years ago one of these cement ships struck a storm; she also struck the bottom of the Mexic Sea, with all on board, p. d. q., but as nothing but a few Seamen went to hell it was alright. The other day a captain, regardless of the immigra tion laws, turned off a lot of English Seamen in New Orleans and they went to the British Consul for to get their money. They got a lot of beautiful prom ises, it is said, Mr. Hopkins even offering to weep for them, sayng his sympathy for his fellow country men was so deep he would rather pay them out of his own pocket than see them suffer only he didn't. Another day a Negro Seamen, British Subject, got thrown off his ship. Hle also, it is said, got into the Consulate of his Britannic Majestiy also he got it in the neck, being told that they could do nothing for him on account of "race prejudice.' Under the eminently just and humane laws of capi talist society a captain can put a Seaman off ship in any port of the world, be it 10,000 miles from home, and pay him only for the time he has put in, but if Seaman wants to quit the ship, that's a horse of another color. lie can't quit unless he deserts, then somebody or other takes all the pay coming to hint. It is freely talked that lots of this "forfeited" pay goes into the pockets of the Captains. Consuls and Commissioners. Another graft worked on the childlike Seamen is the "home crew"graft, where they are signed on in Norway or some other land at wages prevailing over there but which are far below those of the ports to which they are being shanghaied. They can't leave after they find out how they have twen flimflammed, though, for they have "signed on" for from two to three years. Scandanavian Seamen are now working out of the port of New Orleans at wages actually be low those paid the Fruit Trust's Chinese. And these Seandanavian Seamen rmine over here with U'nion cards in their pockets! Must he sonmIe heluva union in Scandanavia. say abolut on a par with those of HIavelk WiLsmon anti George lIodine. On top of all this shameless petty grafting e*,mes the graft of the hbuzzard-like Shipping Masters, whose every interest is in keeping the Seamen drunk andl in slavery. The more we gather ,of the rgend conditions under which exist the Slaves of the S.as the more it looks like a loathsome water-imitation of the Lumber Trust. If you Seamen had the sense of a nanny goat you would get into the MARINE TRANSPORT WORK ERS, I. W. W.. and end it all and forever! BE MEN! I'NION MEN! I. W. W.!
