"As they were made so will they re main till the capitalist system or the 'new unionism' sweeps them out of existence," said the guy with the far seeing eye. "Look," said he, "at the army of meal ticket artists who are deeply entrenched in the offices of the old unions; do you think they are going to sit idly by and see their fat jobs slip out from under them? For in dustrial unionism means fewer un ions, and fewer unions means fewer officers. Therefore the officers are going to 'wield all the power at their command to the end that the caft unions remain craft unions to tbe end of time." Choice Chunks of I. W. W. Wisdom There were still others who sat In their wisdom seats and handed out the following chunks of folly to their fanatical followers: "The old unions are baked hard in their present form they are crystalized and cannot change their form no more than the leopard can change his spots. "The A. F. of L. was organized with the aid of Mark Hanna and other thieving employers. The craft union has fulfilled its mission, —if it ever had one —and must disappear. Those who try to prepetuate it are the deep est reactionaries, even thougli they call themselves socialists, anarchists or syndicalists. The craft union fost ers strife and division among the workers. It fails to conform in any way to the development of produc tion and exchange. It stands in the way of progress and forms a bulwork for capitalism. Those who hold that craft unions will develop into indus trial unions are ignorant of his tory. There is no record of an or ganization that has developed In that manner." Creating the One Big Noise Fed upon that kind of mental alf alfa for a while the radical element In the labor world was ready to start a "real" union, which indeed It did amidst a flourish of trumpets in Chi cago, in 1905. There was DeLeon, Debs, Haywood, St John and a bunch of other theorists,- all of one mind—■ that the A. F. of L. was a dead one and only needed some one to come around and bury it. Indeed many of those present at the convention thought that they were really attend ing the funeral of the A. F. of L., "After we got this whirlwind ablow ing" they said, meaning the I. W. W„ "the decrepit old Federation will just have to go and make a coffin for itself." The I. W. W. was born in a storm of oratory, each speech more fiery than its predecessor, and all directed at the A. F. of L. The I. W. W. was a big noise to start with, and sound is its principal ingredient to this day. If the 1 3ise Is dying down it is only because the number of its megafones are getting fewer. As an organizer of the working class It has been an utter failure, and it is my conviction that the workers as a whole are all the better for that. Workers Too Wise to Join In the first place it is a dual or ganization and its success would have brought about the very evil Its pre moters said it was destined to abol ish. The strife that would arise be tween it and the A. F. of L. did not succeed in getting any great number of the workers to join it, would have been tremendous in its bitterness and Intensity, and would result In the greatest setback the organized labor movement has ever had. But the workers have wisely refused to join it, and have thus saved their energy and labor. Have Not Repudiated Industrial Unionism. But, If the workers have repudiated the L W. W., that does not mean that they have put the stamp of disap proval upon industrial unionism. On the contrary, in every industry the question of industrial action of all the unions engaged is being agitated.and in some instances plans are in opera tion which insures joint action lp demands for improved conditions. The Water Front and Marine Worker's Federation of the Pacific Coast is the latest movement in this direction. This federation had its birth in San Francisco, and includes the unions of sailors, riggers and stevedores, fire men.marine cooks and stewards.flsh ermen, bay and river steamboat men, marine gasoline engineers, steamfit ters, piledrivers, longshoremen, team sters, caulkers, and hoisting engin eers. Experience has taught these work ers the necessity of joint act ion.They have learned that so far as their em ployers are concerned they are all the same—they are mere workers, useful in the seafaring business, and as such they propose to meet their BUlpluyerß as one DOrty through their federation. As wage earners they have one common Interest, one com mon set of employers, therefore the organization that represents them all ls the most efficient one, and will pro duce the best results. That is Indu trialism, and, as these various unions learn more and more the superiority of this method of dealing with the employers, they will gravitate closer together and eventually merge their different unions. Conditions Compel Change of Form That is the natural, evolutionary, met hod of progress the constant re- THE LABOR JOURNAL TRADE COUNCIL NOTES Carl F. Bottlng and William Pylon were elected to the vacancies in the board of trustees. A benefit dance for unemployed tim berworkers has been arranged for by the Barbers union to be given at Fra ternal hall on the evening of April 21. Delegate from Cooks' and Waiters' union reported that his local had voted for $25.00 of Journal stock; also $25.00 $25.00 had been donated to aid unem ployed timberworkers. Teamsters' union delegate reported that his local had voted the sum of $25.00 In aid of unemplyed shingle weavers. The Tailors reported a no nation of $10.00 In aid of the same or ganization. Beginning next week, April 21st, the Everett Trades Council will meet on Wednesday evening of each week, in stead of Friday, as heretofore. Owing to the fact that the Labor Journal must go to press on Thursday it is necessary to hold the council meet ings the night previously in order to afford our readers news hot off the wire, so to speak. Hence the change. One of the functions of the Kverett Commercial club, if not it's chief (pretended) reason for being, was to act as a conciliatory medium in the event of labor and capital conflicts in this community. Why does this body not fulfill this promised function? As a matter of fact, about the only active part this organization has tak en in the local conflict calling for passing of a resolution calling for more vigorous police repression of the legal rights of the workers. Why not rename this body of busi ness men "The Spectator's Club?" Attorney R. J. Faussett appeared be fore the council and gave an informal talk on the public utility situation in Everett, plainly showing that illegal rates upon the citizens of this munici posed upo thee itizens of this munici pality. A resolution of thanks to Mr. Faussett was unanimously voted by the council for his valuable services to the city of Everett in exposing the graft of the Everett Light ,t Power Co., and for his energetic efforts to obtain redress at the hands of this greedy corporation. adjustment to changing conditions and the slufflng off of useless ap pendages.. If there were no unions in existence and we had the knowledge we now possess, we would most like ly organize industrial instead of craft unions...But the craft union be ing here the wisest method to pur sue, it is to federate the unions in the different industries and latter am algamate them, when the turn of events shall dictate such a policy. Many are the conditions that urge us, in self-defense, to ally our unions closer together. No such conditions ever existed before, so history can't teach us in this line. The greatest teacher is not the past but the pres ent. When the employers organize and hire a private army of spies and gun-men to supplement the police, it is time for us to get busy and line up, shoulder to shoulder in one solid mass and thus present a united front to the masters. We must cease to be mechanics or laborers. Being such is merely a detail of our daily grind Under this new condition we rlsfe above art and craft. We become men and brothers, all united by the fact that we are wage earners struggling for a better life against the combined power of wealth. Thusly united in industrial federations we march on ward and upward.

ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIAL STATUS The following extracts from an ad dross recently delivered by Mr. Frank P, Walsh, Chairman, United states Commission on Industrial Relations, before the City Club at Chicago, throw flashlights on the industrial pro blems confronting the masses of to day. Coming as they do from a man who is outside of the ranks of labor they are all the more significant. "The gtatotst influence In life," said Walsh, "is caused by environment. The only factor which enters into environment is the economic factor. The income of a family absolutely determines its place of living and its interpretation of life. "You have no hesitation in saying that there are various classes. What are.classes? They arc human beings of various strata. They actually dwell on plateaus of various heights, according to popular and universal conception. Why? Simply because of the economic factor in the lives of the various classes. Each takes on the color of its class according to its income. The economic factor decides for each class the texture and value of its clothing, the quality of its food, its place of residence, its associates, Its tastes, Its amusements; indeed, every outward aspect of lift? is lived practically the same way by each in dividual in each class. And the economic factor enters more largely into the mental aspects of the in dividual than it does into his physical aspects, His belonging to any of the various classes practically determines for him his views on morals, sociology sin and suffering. If you will ana lyze your views, you will find that they practically coincide with those of of persons of your own class." IN COLORADO The legislature of Colorado has been showing its devotion to the mint owning interests. With the brief ex ception of the populist regime, in which Gov. Waite and Lieut, Governor Coates stood firmly for the rights of the miners, the government of Colo rado lias been in the possession of the Mine Owners' association. The present legislature has gone to greater extremes than any of Its predecessors In enacting laws to serve the interests of the feudal lords. Laws have been enacted which might, well have been taken bodily from the medieval sattutes enacted to keep the serfs in subjection. It has been made a crime to print or write anything calculated to "incite riot." A "riot," in the eyes of the law consists of two or more workingmen assembling to propose a strike, to de mand higher wages or to protest against the importation of strike breakers. To "incite riot" may ba anything from urging miners to strike to compel the mine owners to obey their own laws, to protesting against the killing of women and children by the uniformed thugs com misioned by the state and employed by the mine owning interests. The legislature of Colorado has made it a felony to "attack " a uni formed thug. It likewise lias been made a crime to refuse to obey the orders of a thug, providing the thug has enlisted in (lie militia while in the pay of the mine owners. It is a striking indictment of the ability of the American workingman to use his political power for his own protection that in those states Where the miners and workers affiliated with them to constitute the bulk of the pop ulation, the government lias been used to oppress them. The great body of the workers, through misleadership, lias learned nothing from its unhappy experience. In Colorado, after having been kicked and bullied and jailed, where they were not shot, under the Republican Pcahody and Democratic Amnions, the workers are still jumping from the mine owners' frying pan into the mine owners' fire in a vain endeavor to obtain relief. Stupid as the Bourbons were, at least they knew that they could ex pect nothing from their enemies. IT PUZZLES YOURS TRULY Just supposing that a German war vessel should hear, right now, we mean, the S. O. S. of a British passen ger ship, sinking after a collision at sea. Would it hasten to the aid of the passengers and crew? Why, of course it would, and once there would rescue every man jack or a trying; and would take them on board and feed them, and clothe them, too, if need bo. And the other way round it would be the same. And yet if they met that same ves sel steaming along, in good health, figuratively speaking, they would send it to the bottom and set the passen gers and crew adrift in small boats to possibly perish.
