Editor Worker: —
Local Rosedale yesterday passed
& resolution for National Referendum.
It calls for a definite stand against
the doctrine of National Defense, es
poused by so many of the would-be
leading lights of the party. Nation
alism wrecked the movement in Eu
rope; it will do so here, unless the
revolutionary comrades make their
stand against it now. The proposed
referendum will make a clear line up
of revolutionists and reformers, and
show us whether there is sufficient
men in the party to stand by Socialist
Local Rosedale hopes that Washing
ton locals will back it up by their
seconds, as Washington has had a
reputation for being an advanced
state. But, we shall see.
Trusting you will give this note due
prominence, Comrade Editor, I remain
FRED S. FAULKNER.
Geo. H. Goebel, Everett, May 14.
All the politicians and Daily Howl
ers "appear" to be lambasting the
"big interests" and "monopolies" of
this state and nation. Of course
"There's a reason." Subscriptions
look good and the spoils of office are
better. Big business and monopolies
are the outgrowth of the capitalist
system and anybody that upholds the
present system and then lambasts its
institutions is knocking at the wrong
door. Big business is here to stay,
and Col. Hartley knows that, too. He
also knows that there are plenty of
"suckers" hanging around that can
not analyze the "stage play."

We held our regular meeting yes
terday, Sunday, May 7th, 11:30 a. m.
After our business meeting we en
joyed a half hour talk by Comrade
Carl Ulonska on "Internationalism
and Its Effect Upon the Labor Move
ment," and then adjourned to the din
ing room to a fine lunch. Fifty per
sons, including children, were present.
We always serve these lunches after
meetings because it helps to get out a
good crowd and that way we get non
socialists to attend the meetings and
they soon get interested in the busi
ness part as well as the social part.
I wish more of the locals would
take up this plan and use the school
houses as we do. They have a right
to use them, and we never accomplish
anything without first trying and
often being defeated several times be
fore we win.
Yours for a bloodless revolution,

A big audience greeted Comrade
Anna Maley in The Forum, Sunday

"Bread no I Brotherhood." Comrade
Malay has mill got the fire of tin'

was noticed that she was not a* well,

Her lecture, however, is n hum
tllngei' and just the Kind thai could be
expected from a Comrade who is #is
well Verted In Socialism as the is. In
her speech she said.
"Not only does life depend upon
bread, but most, of the people spend
most of their time in bread-getting.
11l a contolling sense, labor, the bread
getting process, constitutes life.
"Theoretically, the world's desire
for many centuries has been toward
brotherhood. The battlefields of Eu
rope today and the wars of all time
are the acutest manifestations of the
fact that the world's desire has not

look to the workshop, where most of
the people spend most of their lives,
for an explanation of all those things
that defeat the practice of brother
"Industry is now carried on by
means of improved tools which make
labor ever more productive. Machines
compete with man for jobs, forcing
men to compete with one another.
Competition among workers means
lower wages—lower wagon means less
power to buy. The less American
workers can buy, the more American
goods must be sold abroad. The same
is true of Germany, of England, of
"The necessity to control trade
routes has been and is behind the con
flict in Europe.
"In short, the motto of industrial
masters everywhere, 'Buy labor on the
cheapest market and sell its products
on the dearest markets,' defeats
"The United States steel trust has
waged relentless war upon labor un
ions in its effort to buy labor on a
cheap market. It now takes advan
tage of Europe's misfortunes to sell
its products on a dear market. Un
der guise of 'Preparedness' it seeks
to whip the United States into pur
chasing its products. It is not con
tent with making men like Senator
Penrose its salesmen in congressit
must needs put a salesman's grip in
the hands of our President and send
him out to scare the people into buy
ing. All this is not strange in view
of the fact that our government pays
$17.50 each for schrapnel that can be
had for $7.92, and $440.00 a ton for
armor plate that all estimates place
at not more than $247.00 a ton.
"Socialism holds that every city as
a city, should engage in every line of
business that affects the common life
of the city, and that the state and the
nation should do ever so. A city that
can run a school can run a milk depot.
A state that can build roads can oper
ate coal mines. A nation that can
build a Panama Canal can build a
"The governments of Europe, to
carry on a war for the profit of the
masters of the bread in Europe, have
gone into many lines of business. If
England as a nation can manufacture
coats for purposes of murder, cannot
a people's government manufacture
coats for purposes of life?
"The point is just here—we must
have a people's government, a govern
ment pledged to put society into busi
ness for itself, to carry on production
for use and not for profit, to give the
people, not free bread, but the free
opportunity to get bread.
"Public schools mean, not free edu
cation, but the free opportunity to get
education. If the child must go to
the factory instead of to the school,
that is not because the people own the
school, it is because they do not own
the factory. It is not because we
have some Socialism, but because we
have not enough Socialism. Private
control of personal use goods, social
control of social use goods—this is
the slogan of Socialism."
Ceo. H. Goebel, Everett, May 14.
TIME TO QUIT
A brakeman on the 'Frisco was
heard to state a few days ago that
Germany had conceded every point to
the United States, and was ready to
publicly apologize or do anything to
atone. When asked where he got that
information, he stated that it came
from Germany just as soon as she
learned that Theodore Roosevelt and
his three sons and one son-in-law, as
stated by Roosevelt, were going to
enlist if war was declared.
Does it require deep insight to un
derstand that with changes in man's
material conditions of life, social re
lations and social system, his ideas,
views and conceptions, in one word,
his consciousness also changes? What
does the history of ideas prove but
that intellectual production changes
with material production? The ruling
ideas of any age have ever been only
the ideas of its ruling class.—Marx.
The workers are slaves from choice,
but their choice Is the result of their
ignorance and their prejudices. If
you can get a slave to read a Socialist
paper or booklet, you have taken the
first step to emancipate him.

By ALLAN L. BENSON,
Socialist Party Candidate for
The American press lies daily and
hourly about Socialism. It heaps, upon
Socialism all of its scorn, all of its
derision, all of its contempt. Why?
Because Socialism would harm the
country? . By no.means! Because, in
the opinion of the great)capitalist in
terests, Socialism would cut off the
grafts of the great capitalists. If So
cialism were a fool's dream, the cap
italist interests and their newspapers
would pay no attention to it. They
care nothing about fool's dreams. But
they care a great deal about anything
and everything that has within it the
power to take this country from the
few and turn it over to everybody.
They know only too well that if the
great industries of this country were
collectively owned by the people, and
operated by the representatives of the
people, not for anybody's profit, but
for everybody's use, that the day
the capitalist class would be ended.
By opposing us, lying about us and
slandering us, they really declare
how sure they are that Socialism, if
tried, would do what its advocates de
clare it would do—end poverty.
Workingmen who are being sweated
by the capitalist system to four
rooms and a lean living may doubt
whether Socialism would work. The
capitalists who are sweating the
workingmen have no such doubts.
THE REAL CULPRIT
The Crown Prince had been so busy
that he hadn't had time to get to
gether with his father and have a
confidential chat. But one evening
when there was a lull in the 808-cen
timeter guns, they managed to get a
few moments off. The Crown Prince
turned to his father and said:
"Dad, there is something I have
been wanting to ask you for a long
time. Is Uncle George really respon
sible for this scrap?"
"No, my son."
"Well, did Cousin Nick have any
thing to do with it?"
"Not at all."
"Possibly you did?"
"Then would you mind telling me
who it was?"
The anointed one was silent for a
moment. Then he turned to his son
"I'll tell you how it happened.
About two or three years ago there
was a wild man came over here from
the United States, one of those rip
roaring rough riders that you read
about in dime novels, but he cer
tainly did have Aout him a plausible
air. 1 took him out and showed him
our fleet. Then I showed him the
army, and after he had looked them
over he said to me, 'Bill, you could
lick the world.' And I was damn fool
enough to believe him,"—
