The working cluas and the employing class have

Between these two classes a struggle mast g

These conditions can be changed and the later

ln any one Industry, or in all Industries, if neceO
sry, cease work whenever a strike or lockout is
on in any departmbnt thereof, thus making am

Instead of the conservative motto: "A fair day's
wage for a fair's day's work," we mut inscribe
on our banner the revolutionary watchword:
"Abolition of the wage system.
It is the historic mission of the working class
to do away with capitalism. The army of proe
