The above portion of the United States cool commission’s
preliminary report is a sample of present—day economic thought.
That the public my be served, the workers’ rights must
be limited! Or, in other words, stop strikes when the public in
Workers may ask: .‘What of our rights ?”. The new phil
osophy (?) replies: “Not to be considered. You may not know
it, but when you accept this employment your rights are neoco
urily subject to limitttion, and therefore you can be jailed' if
you strike."
This is the hokus pokus now passingdor socid jmtice, and
which has been approved by the United Stotee supreme court
(Wilson vs. New.)
The public may continue its sweet way, oblivious of the
workers’ wrongs, but the letter must have ‘fiimitetions” placed
on their rights, that “the public interest may be respected and
Truly, these be unususl statesmen that doth advise—end
delude—the multitude.
Attention is called to the cunning runner in which the com
mission clsssiflea the workers' rights and the operation of pub
lic utilities. _
“Limitations on the right: of owners, of cod operators, mine
workers, «tiers and dealers” is whut the commission favors.
To limit the rights of workers means to control their fight
to strike, end jail them if they dilobey.
When a corporation is regulated, the liberty of its oflicinls
is not interfered with. Corporntions my be fined, and the
charge is panned on to the public, but corpontion oflicinla are
never jailed.
' It is absurd to say there is no difference, for instance, be
tween 3 government order that railroad rates be reduced and a
law that workers can not quit their employment.
In the case of the railroad there is nothing elemental in
volved. No fundamental right of the railroad president, board
of directors or stockholders is denied. 4
There may be differences of opinion between the govern
ment and the railroad. The latter may not agree on the justness
of the rate order, but this is a difference of detail and not of prin
ciple. The railroad: and all other public utilities acknowledge
the right of the government to regulate them. This principle
is never disputed, though its application often is.
The workers, however, deriy themrng—h'twotflgvoemment to
regulate them, as edvocated by the coal communion. '
When the worker is “reg'ulated’r’gi; 'l;an Tiberty is in
stantly aflected.
Personal liberty in fundamental. It must not be subject to
the mood of men or wild notions that run counter‘to the experi
ence of the ages.
The right of the hum being to own himself is imperish
able. It has survived every iron heel.
It is idle to say that vvage mike}. will synender ownership
of themselves because the agents of greed have evolved a soph
istry which, Kb?“ strbped bore, means:
“The public’a conv'ehiencéiilvséi—gwlhvery.”
