TELEGRAPHERS UNDERPAID, SAYS COMPANY HEAD The United Stales Industrial Rela tions committee is silling in Chicago, hearing evidence pro and eon in the telegraph operators' light for higher [wages and recognition of their union. President Mewoomb Carlton and vico- President Brooks of the Western Un ion Telegraph Co., both admitted that the wages of the operators are too low. Edward Reynlds, general man ager of the Postal Telegraph, declared that wages are all right as they are 'They are paid as much as they could Barn in any other work," ho said. While President Carlton was willing to grant a wage Increase, he was out and out agin' the unions. He admitted the principle of collect ive bargaining and said that, "a re sponsible organisation" of Western Union telegraphers could be deult with. '•Our oppositions to the union ure well understood," he said, "and we will fight." Konenkamp, president of the Com mercial Telegraphers' union, referred to some of the Western Union meth ods as "criminal" and llio operators conditions as "slavery." He continued that If one union Buffered because'of its leaders' personality, he would pledge that within 90 days after the Western Union recognized the union they would all resign. Edgar Barrett, a Western Union employe, admitted that he was former ly employed, as a "spotter." Henry Lynch, n telegraph operator, claimed his unionism forced him into exile in Winnipeg, Canada. mota, three miles; house 30x14, two stories; school eight months, 20 pupils.

This gives tin' Socialists five members on the directorship and constitutes one third of the board. Joseph K. Cordes was ulso elected as civil judge. The re turns show a notable InercuHe in Socialist vote over the preceding yenr. CHICAGO SOCIALISTS ELECTED Two Socialists have been elected to the City council. They are Win. K. Rodrijtuea and John C. Kennedy. AND ANOTHER ELECTED Thomas Wight, Socialist, has been elected Alderman of the Rhinelander, Wis., City council. The combined votes of the two opponents totaled less than half of that received by Wight. The installment of bulb blowing ma chines at the Corning, N. J., glass works has resulted in the laying off of from 75 to 100 expert bulb blowers in the big factory. A number of the blowers and gatherers who have been accustomed to earn $5.00 and $6.00 day have been given an opportunity to gather for the machines at $2.00 a day. Two Socialists have been re-elected to the Audobon, Pa., school board. The ruling class of England has fin ally succeeded in breaking down the child labor law to the extent of se curing the right to work 12-year-old children on the farms, who may be exploited 10 to 12 hours a day, besides losing three years of schooling. THE RED FLAG (By Prank B. Norman.) The red flag is a sympol that red blood Is sacred. That it .shall not be shed nor exploited. H Ik a prophecy of a tlmo to come, whon all creatures with rod blood in their veins .shall live iii lovo and se renity and lie down In peace together. Its ndherents proclaim the brother hood of man. While it may be foreign in origin, doming from far off Calvary, yet it Kliall in time encircle the earth. It shall be a canopy oyer the earth at rest, at last, in peace, when all other symbols shall havct crumbled into dimt and been forgotten. WHAT IS SOCIALISM ? Socialism is the public ownership and the popular management of the meani of production and distribution which are now used to exploit the musses of the people out of the bulk of the products of their honest toil. * * * Socialism stands for the pri vate ownership of everything that ought to be used in private. It stands for private property in everything except those tilings which can be used to exploit others.—John M. Work. GUARDING THEM. The Employer—"By the way, the children usually eat with us." The New Governess ((irmly:) "I must object to that." "Why?" 'They'w sun; to pick up such faulty not inns of grammar."-Cleveland Plain Healer.

CAPITALISM IS ALRIGHT New Vorlt City's expenditures for Charitable purposes in 1904 amounted to 16,736,856.04, Ten years latter they hud grown to 110,865,065.11, an In crease of 88.8 per cent. At. its Convention on April 0, the In dependent Labor Party of ICngland adopted a resolution expressing strong disapproval Of the participation of the party in recruiting campaigns. It also adopted a resolution condeming the government for its anti-drink order. The split In the ranks of the Ger man Social Democracy Is taking dofl nate shape/ The two ''camps are lin ing up their forces and each are get ting control of the different Socialist papers, WE SHOULD WORRY That troops will eventually bo used to force strikers back to work is a foregone conclusion. Lord Kitchener's letter to the striking (lockworkers, in Which lie threatened drastic measures met with roars of laughter from the strikers at their mass meeting. Dun's report for the first quarter of 1915 shows 7,216 business failures and the liabilities of the defaulting firms amounting to $105,703,335. Only once has this sum been exceeded, this being in the panic year of 1893, when liabilities were $121,500,000. WAR IS HELL A newspaper correspondent says an average of 1,200 soldiers are taken from the German trenches insane each day. HELL HERE, TOO More than 400,000 men in 28 states will be thrown out of work in from 30 to CO days unless the government per suades England to permit America to import German dyestuff, acording to a delegation which appeared through Secretary Tumulty to President Wil son for relief. , Statistics have just been issued which state that child labor is direct ly responsible for an annual expendi tue in this country of $25,000,000 for relief work alone. WHAT SOCIALISM IS (From the Encyclopedia Britannica.) "Socialism is that policy or theory which aims at securing by the action of the central democratic authority a better distribution, and in due subor dination thereunto a better produc tion of wealth than now prevails. So cialism has been, and still is, very frequently associated with irrellgion and atheism. The same remark ap plies to continental liberalism, and partly for a like reason; the absolute governnvents of the continent have taken the existing forms of religion into their service and have repressed religious freedom. On religion, as on marriage, Socialism has no special teaching." MY POLITICS Being a Study in Capitalization and the Correct Use of Words, as Well as a Confession of Faith. I am not a Democrat because the Democratic party is not democratic. 1 am not a Republican because the Republican party is not republican. 1 am not a Progressive because the Progressive party is not progressive. I am a Socialist because the Social ist party is democratic, is republican, is progressive, and is Socialistic; and I am a Democrat, Republican, a Pro gressive and a Socialist.

PERFECTION OF SOCIETY THROUGH EVOLUTION Socialism Is a Stage Yet to Be Reached. SCIENCE PREDICTS CHANGE. Involution is the continuous and übiquitous manifestation of an occult and inherent tendency tord. perfec tion.— Lamarck. BoclaUem Is a COIMCtoM endeavor to ratMtltntS OTgairiMd co-operation for existence in place Of the present anar chlcal competition for existence, or the system of Metal organisation calculat es 1 to bring this about. This definition, though it gives, perhaps, adequate ex preMton to the active nnd practical side of Socialism, leaves out of account altogether Its theoretical basis. From tills point of view, Socialism is nn at tempt to lay the foundation of a real science of sociology, which shall ena ble mankind, by thoroughly under standing their past and present, to comprehend, and thus, within limits, to control the movement and develop ment of their own society In the near future. Consequently Socialism in its Wide sense is not, as Is still commonly thought, a mere aspiration for a better state of society, still less only a aeries of proposal* (0 mitigate the evils nris- Ing from the present social arrange ments. Modern scientific Socialism essays to give an Intelligible explanation of the growth of human society, and to show Unit as eiich step In the long course of private property, through chattel slav ery, serfdom and wagedom was Inev itable, so the next stop from capital ism to .Socialism Is also Inevitable. The object which Socialists have in view Is Unit this, the final transforma tion, should be made consciously by On organized, educated and intelligent people Instead of unconsciously, and therefor* teinpestoously, by groups of discontented, embittered and Ignorant worker*. Agitation agninst the injus tice of the present system of produc tion therefore is only valuable so far as It educates men nnd women to ap preciate the tendency of the time and leads them to organize for the attain ment of the definite end which the evo lution of economic forms has made ready. Whether the great change will be brought peaceably or forcibly has no bearing upon Rocialism in Itself, but depends upou the stage of develop ment which has been reached in each civilized country and the attitude which the dominant class may adopt In relation to the demands which the economic situation impels the produc ing class to make. • • • With the establishment of national and eventually International Socialism, mankind resumes the definite control over the means and j instruments of production and masters ; them hence forward for all time Instead of being mastered by them. By such co-opera tive Industry, whose power over na ture Is Increased by each fresh Inven tion and discovery, a carapace of re pression is lifted from the faculties of each Individual, and wealth being made as plentiful as water by light, wholesome labor, all freely contribute to Increase their own happiness as well as that of their fellows. Human nature assumes a new and higher character In a society In which the surroundings are such that life Is not, as today, a constant struggle against the pressure of want and the temptations of misery. Instead of the personal, limited, Introspective, Indi vidual ethic Is Hie social, altruistic, broad ethic In which the duty toward society necessarily Involves the highest duty toward a man's self. Woman, re lieved of economic and social subjuga tion, will assume her place as the so cial equal of man. So tar, therefore, from Individual Ini tiative and t>ersoual freedom In the highest sense being limited and stunt ed, human beings will have the oppor tunity for attaining to a level of phys ical, moral and mental development such as the world has never seeu. The golden age of society Is, Indeed, not In the past, but In the future.—H. M. Hyndman In Johnson's Encyclopedia Vrtlcle "Socialism. 11 The Church's Problem. Will the church, as one body, ever awake to her opportunity to be, not the clubhouse of the well to do, but tne spiritual expression of the American people T Not uutll her Byinputhles are go awakened thut what concerns every man, every woman, every child, con cerns the church.

Hie probiuui of the unemployable, the problem of lack of opportunities, the problem of indus trial accident*, the problem of the child, the problem of woman in in dustry, she cannot excuse herself on the ground that hers Is the problem of eternal life. For life In time Is a part of eternal life, and the environment of the life of probation is that which tends largely to pull upward or to pull downward In eternal life. — Living <'lunch.

The state of Kansas has undertaken the job of finding out what meats and other foods are to be used by the housewife in her efforts to reduce the cost of living. Twenty-four white rats are to be experimented on to find out which are the best and cheapest foods for wage slaves to exist upon and produce wealth and reproduce their kind. It is really wndert'ul how these legis lators look after our interests. How thoughtful of these men to use white rats to experiment with. There are thousands of hungry people; but if the officials were to experiment on them with different kinds of meats and cc- ' erals and fruits they might die of star vation or over-consumption. There are ton 3of meat in the cold storage plants and millions of heads of cattle grazing in the fields, but it would never do to place these at the disposal of the hungry workers, for they might choke themselves by eating too much, and they might even get fat and lazy and insist upon lying around instead of producing wealth. There are mill ions of acres of vacant land in the hands of speculators, but it would never do to compel these speculators to give up their land to enable the av erage man to use it, because we would then depopulate the cities and thus do away with the average man's pleas ure of hunting a job. It would also blot out the beauties of the country as constituted by the frests with their giant trees. Think what an eyesore it would be to see fields of wheat, veg etables and fruits and roving cattle instead of the "giants of the forest." Yes, we are indeed lucky to have such great men in our midst. To think that these men should go to the troub-' le of determining by experimenting on white rats, which are the cheapest and most nutritious foods makes us swell up with pride. There are plenty of the choicest cuts of meats but they are not for the common wage worker. There are plenty of delicious fruits, but they are not grown for us. There are plenty of all kinds of eatables and wearables, but we did not produce them for our selves, hence we cannt be entitled to them. If the markets of the world are glutterd with the unsalable products of our labor, we should content our selves with knwing that we have done our duty in producing these things, and that if they cannot be sold to the "heathen Chinee" or the dusky Indian, that we should take our medicine like the soldier on the battlefield. And should be die of starvation, we have the satisfaction of knowing that we shall get our reward in heaven. WHO WILL BE NEXT TO FALL? Lockout of Chicago Sheet Metal Work- ers to Be Enforced. CHICAGO, April 13.—The Building Construction Employers' association issued an rder today for the enfrce ment tomorrow of the lockout against the sheet metal workers. The order was issued despite the fact that the sheet metal workers had not noti fied the association that they would abide by the general lockout order of a week ago, which was directed at all the building trades allowing their working agreements to expire. The employers' association leaders said the sheet metal con tractors would be ousted from the association if they refused to enforce the order. WAR—WHAT FOR?
