If a merchant advertises in evury paper but those patronized by the toilers, it would seemingly indicate that he is not very friendly with this class or overanxious to have their trade. Along this line, it is a foregone conclusion that those merchants who do advertise in the columns of the papers devoted to labor, feel friendly toward this class, and desire their trade.

Hißilow Th«> war has wrought in me, as in many others, a new purpose, a ptirpOM which finds more sympathy, at the present time, in the Social ist party than in any other. Personal and trival aims seem base now. One's heart goes with those mighty armies. One feels the mystic power of the cross around which surge the regiments of death. The old battle cries no longer rouse us. The old issues no longer suffice. One is ashamed to play the old game of political expediency and party advantage. Henceforth I want my life to count to the utmost in the great task that lies before us, the task of destroying the seeds of war and building a new social order. A handful of people own the bulk of the nation's wealth. The great majority live in poverty or on the verge of it. In the populous wards of every big city there are teeming thousands who pant for breath on summer niphts in quarters that would gag and turn the stomach of a man used to decent surroundings. Here is one Cincinnati picture: A woman standing over a cook stove. She has an infant in her arms and a child crying at her feet. It is 100 in the shade. In the same room with the stove is a bed an dtable set for supper. This is the only room they have. There are but two windows. They face the west. The walls of the building simmer with the heat. The afternoon sun beats in relentlessly. The father has just come home from work in a nearby slaughter house. The air is full of the stench of blood and offal, mingled with the nauseating odors of cloths and bed ding redolent with the fumes of victuals. What of the sanctities of mar riage? What of the sacredness of home? What of the holiness of motherhood? What of the rights of children? How can these flowers take root in such a soil? This young mother has been caught in the trap of cruel cir cumstance. Look at her and then remember that another woman in Cincinnati paid $240,000 for a pic ture to hang on her wall. The poverty of o/ie woman and the poulence of the other flow from the same cause. It is robbery in the name of law. It is injustice avoidable, inexcusably, damnable. While such injustice lasts there will be hate and social strife and war. The present order has come to judgment. . This war is a witness against it. In the course of human events the hour has come for a new declaration of independence. Our fathers, traitors to the government which claimed their obedience, bold ly asserted, and defended with their lives, the principle of political equal ity. We now assert the principle of social democracy. We are bound to admit that all persons are equally entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happi ness. We are bound to acknowledge that the present social order dis tributes these blessings grudgingly and with grave inequalities. It is therefore our right to alter or abol ish this social order, and to insti tute in its place, laying its founda tions on such principles, and organ izing its powers in such form as to us shall seem most likely to effect the safety and happiness of all.

ON THK MAP TULSA, Oklii.-- A crowd of mask ed men in black rob* , calling them- Ri'lves "Knights of Liberty," took 17 member* of the 1. W. W. from policifflen early t««l»y, lashed them with i'Ht-i,-"i! c-uii'. anil then daubed their bleeding i>u ks with tar and feathers. The I. W. W. had been convicted in police court of vagrancy and fined $100 each. The trial lasted until nearly midnight. The pris oners were being removed from the jail in three automobiles when the black robed men held them up and compelled the police to turn over the men they were guarding. It. is evident that men must lenrn l>y experience, and that the average business man in incapable of profit ing by the experience of others. If the Commercial club of Tulsa, Okla., had learned from the experiences of the business men of Everett they would not have committed the out rage reported. But the whole in cident goes to prove that business and bu.snien.imen are the same all over the country, in fact, all over the world. The Tulsa "Knights of Liberty" .set out to crush the I. W. W. in the same manner that was tried in Ev erett. Presumably the same re sults will follow. At the time of the Everett affair the Wobblies were comparatively insignificant. Since that time they have gained five hundred per cent in membership in the Northwest, and 600 to 1 in Everett, which was out of all pro portion to their previous rate of in crense. They have organized unions In many new sections. And they have become strong enough in the Northwest to have established the eight-hour day on the job in some twenty-four camps. Business men forget that the method by which most men learn, paiticularly those who have not had much education, is by imitation. Violence breeds violence. It can be expected that the I. W. W. will adopt the methods that are demon strated to them; they are but hu man. Not, however, that they would be likely to ape the vigilantes too literally. That is, when they set out to get revenge, they will not work in conjunction with the police department, the sheriff's office, or the courts. The business men ac quired the right, or power, to use the police, deputy sheriffs, and courts through political action, and the ■Wobblies are religiously opposed to using that kind of a weapon. Hence they use what they call "sabotage," so as to avoid detection. We are not writing a brief for the I. W. W., but to show the folly of the methods of business men in dealing with them. LIONS LED BY ASSES The widespread strike of the coal miners of Indiana and Illinois with out the sanction of the officials ef their union, or rather in apfte <jf the vehement protest of their of ficials, furnishes an interesting ob ject lesson to the student of labor unionism in war times. At a conference of representatives of the government and the high of ficials of the miners' union held in Washington some weeks ago a con ditional increase of wages was grant ed to the miners, the condition be ing, on the part of the operators who were also a party to the conference, that the increase should be added to the already exorbitant price of coal. The miners waited long and pa tiently for some definite word as to when the increase was to take ef fect, and finally in sheer desperation, being allowed to work only half time and unable to meet the high cost of everything, they went out on strike. Frantically, the officials of their union, from the highest to the lowest, shrieked that the strike was "irregular" and that the miners must go back to work at the old wages. In vain diil they protest that they could not buy food for their families nor send their children to school for the want of clothes. All such appeals to their officials fell upon deaf ears. They must submit at this time, even if their families were on the verge of starvation. The operators and their own union of ficials were all in combination against them—and all stowing away three big fat meals a day. Meanwhile the thieving operators were charging robber rates for coal, literally sandbagging the helpless consumers to come across at their rate. The strike of these brave miners on their own initiative with every thing against them, including their own high-salaried officials, is a clear case of lions led by IHM —Gene Debs in Social Revolution.

I ROM "MEMOIRS OF A REVOLUTIONISTS" (By Peter Kropotkin) In every town of Russia, in every quarter of si Petersburg, small groups were formed for self-im provement and self-education; the works of the philosophers, the writ ers of the economists, the researches of the young Russian historical school, were carefully read in these circles, and the reading was fol lowed by endless discussions. The aim of nil that reading and discus sion was to solve the great question which rose before them what way could they be useful to the masßes? Gradually they came to the idea that the only way was to settle among the people and to live the people's life. Young men went into the villages as doctors, doctors' assistants, teachers, villages scribes, even as agricultural laborers, black smiths, woodcutters, and son on, and tried to live there in closest contact with the peasants. Girls passed teachers' examinations, learned mid wifery or nursing, and went by the hundreds into the villages, devoting themselves entirely to the poorest part of the population. ■'?>£ Here and there, small groups of propagandists had settled in towns and villages in various capacities. Blacksmiths' shops and small farms had been started, and young men of the wealthier classes worked in the shops or on the farms, to be in daily contact with the toiling masses. At Moscow, a number of young girls, of rich families, who had studied at the Zurich university and had start ed a separate organization, went even so far as to enter cotton fac tories, where they worked from four teen to sixteen hours a day, and lived in the factory barracks the miserable life of the Russian factory girls. It was a grand movement, in which, at the lowecst estimate, from two to three thousand persons took an active part, while twice or thrice as many sympathizers and suppor ters helped the active vanguard in various ways. With a good half of that army our St. Petersburg circle was in regular correspondence—al- ways, of course, in cipher. ! The literature which could be pub- I lished in Russia under a rigorous censorship—the faintest hint of So cialism being prohibited—was soon found insufficient, and we started a printing office of our own abroad. Pamphlets for the workers and the peasants had to be written, and our small "literary committee," of which I was a member, had its hands full of work. Serghei wrote a couple of such pamphlets—one in the Lam menais style, and another contain ing an exposition of Socialism in a fairy tale—and both had a wide circulation. The books and partlph lets which were printed abroad were smuggled into Russia by thousands, stored at certain spots, and sent out to the local circles, which dis tributed them among the peasants and the workers.
