United Press and Publishing Company Published Every Wednesday. subscription Rates $2.00 Per Year fenteied as Second Class Matter at tbe Post office at New Ulm. Minnesota Wednesday, Sept. 3, 1919? Va&y* In line with,a bdlef whl(Sl f% fiXVt always held, the New Ulm Publishing Company is this week turning over its business into the hands of its employees who have helped to create the structure that has been built up during the past seven years. We have always contended that the worker should control the tools of production and we have worked to that end with unfailing interest, hoping that the time would come when the employees of the plant would find them selves sufficiently familiar with the work to be able to handle the proposi tion independent of our active assistance. The past two years have called for unsual effort on the part of everyone busi ness end the printing business labored under the burden of extreme scarcity of help and of material together with rapidly increasing costs and the enlarged demand caused by war and post-war conditions There was more work to be done and fewer people to do it. Only by the most strenuous efforts could the task be accomplished and only because our employees stood valiantly by us through it all, working often almost night and day, were we able to pull through successfully. They have thus proved their interest in the work, their dependability, and during the summer while we were absent they also proved their ability to handle the entire business. We have, therefore, dating from Septem ber 1, turned over £o them as lessees, the entire business of the New Ulm Publish ing Company. The new company will be known as the United Press and Publishing Company. The firm consists of the following members' John Woebke, Emma Hellmann, Arthur Kachel and Lawrence Lang They will retain in their em ploy all of the former help and will conduct the business in the same loca tion We have every confidence that these young people will carry on the policy we have pursued of giving the public the best service of which they are capable at a fair return for their work and also that they will fight the battles of the common people against autocracy every form as we have done to the best of our ability. Possibly we could have turned over the plant a couple of years ago andmember would have done so, if sinister forces had not been at work to criish any and every one who dared oppose them in their war methods. We felt that we should stay on the job and take the brunt of the fight rather than unload at such a time. Now that the war for true democracy has been won, now that we are convinced that our views on democracy will finally prevail, we are 3erfectly willing to turn over the plant to our help, knowing that they, too, have learned the great lesson of true derrc cracy and will continue to publish the Uew Ulm Review as an independent organ and in the interests of the common people. We take this opportunity to express to all our true and tried friends who stood by us when we fought the battle for liberty our heartfelt thanks and to assure them that we are grateful for the opportunity of having been able to be of assistance to them even though the work at times became lather stren uous We hope thai they will continue to give their patronage and supporrt to our successors even in a more marked degree than it was accorded to us, be cause the young people too will have many things to contend with that are calculated to make the most courageous falter. Albert -Steinhauser Harriet Payne Steinhauser Our Principles. Commencing with thjs issue, REVIEW will be published by a firm composed of employees of New Ulm Publishing Company, idea of a co-operati\e plant has long "been cherished by its owners and but for the war would have Deen put .into operation some time ago. Mr. Stein hauser has several times expressed his opinion in regard to co-operative plants and believes that the time is coming when all large factories and offices will be operated by the employees themselves. the new the The Consequently he is willing to try out the plan and let his plant be the first of its? kind to be run under those conditions. The former managers have always had the inttr st of theiremployees upper most in,mind and have always been willing to fight for the laboring man hi the great battle for justice. It is tk!e regretted that there are few like them, that there are but few-who are willing to 'practice what they preach and give the laboring man a chance to get the fall value of his labor. They have been through strenuous times when it would have been to their pecuniary advantage to throw up the fight and let the laboring man fight oas wmm his battles alone but they remained true to their principles and have fought the battles of the oppressed—and won. They have been harrassed and lied about. Incidents have been laid at their door of which they had absolutely no knowl edge whatever. But down in their hearts their oppressors admire them for standing up for their principles and foremost 6f all, admire th^ way in which they have always backed the Constitu tion of the United Stajtes and downed autocracy at every possible chance. In taking oyer the REVIEW it shall always be the endeavor of the new com pany to abide' by these principles, ^to uelprthe laboring mw* kHHUlf from the shackles of capital to support the Constitution of this nation to forever continue the fight against autocracy and above all to fight the battles of our country and to fight for that flag which the founders of handed down to the present genera tion a flag which shall be second to none but shall wave above them all The columns of the Review will always be at the service of the public. It shall always be our aim to help build up the, city and gain back for it the good.name which it once possessed but which the lying press of the country has blackened to its fullest power. Right is might and although it will take time the truth is bound to win and New Ulm can soon expect to regain its former place.S In regard to the business end of the company we shall always endeavor to give quality and service in aH jobs turned out and if we give these we are sure to give the satisfaction which we would like to Ijive to all our customers. It will be our aim to give our readers the news as quick as possible and we shall be glad to rectify any mistakes which may occur. Trusting that we may earn the confi dence of all our readers and always hoping to gain additional subscribers and friends, we are, ~i« Yours truly, United Press and Publishing Company Mr. Wilson is now trying to reorganize a country which was in danger of degen erating into a republic during his absence abroad* O Had the recent race riots occurred in Moscow and Petrograd instead of Chicago and Washington, millions of Americans would unfailingly have hailed them as evidence of Russia's inability to govern itself.

There is to be a strict system of licenses, such as has been recommended by the Federal Trade establishing throughout the country storage and marketing facilities that will permit competition with packers' branch houses. The bill was drafted after month of careful study and has the approval of bodies concerned with the cost of living on the one hand and the prosper ity of farming on the other., The pack ers complain that this measure is "rev olutionary but the American people are no longer afraid of revolutionary measures to curb profiteers Commission, for the purpose of remov- charge of the section of sanitation, vet ing the stockyards from the control of inary division, Minnesota college of the packers of limiting the packers' agriculture, says the state has more control over industries producing unre-! officially accredited purebred herds of l.ted food products of putting refrig- cattle free fr^tn tuberculosis that any erator cars, jon the basis of common other state.^Also that it has more carriers and making them part of the herds that have given one clean test carrying system of the country and of and more herds under official supervi W4 One explanation that has been given of Mr. Wflson's concessions to French,, British, Italian and Japanese Imperialism and of his lamentable compromise on his pr nciples is that he ieared^to precipi tate a revolution in France if he retired from the peace conference. "It, is possible" says Robert Dell in a letter to The Dial, "that the explanation has some foundation and if Mr. Wilson had such a fear, there was some justification for it. But it is not a sufficient reason for his capitulation, for, if the fear be justified, the French government at any rate would have yielded rather than allow Mr. Wilson to withdraw And Mr. Wil son's capitulation has only made the revolution more certain. Had he stood firm and secured a peace in accordance with the principles which he laid down and which the Allies and Germany aq ce'pted, he might have saved bourgeois society at least for a tune. His failure is regarded as the final failure of the bourgeiosie and has convinced the mass of the people whose hopes in him have been so bitterly disappointed, that there is nothing*to hope from a capitalist society and that only a radical change can make possible the ideals which Mr. Wilson aimed at and has failed to attain." two short years have past since that memorable anti-draft meeting at T^-roe* Hall Park and already a mighty change is noticeable in the criticism of that event. The judgment of history is beginning to#make itself felt and throw a new light on the spirit of our people. The men who were abused in the vilest language as disloyalists and traitors to th«nr country, for partici pation in that meeting are being exoner ated fro*r the sins they were accused of having ccmritted against America. Mr. Lundeen, a man who, as Congressman j® has gained a clearer vision of everything connected with the late war tells them that they were the real true-blue Ameri cans and that they fought for the very principles dear to every American since the days of the Uberatipn from ,the British yoke. f* H4A We must not have any special alli ances or secret treaties," said the Presi dent.^"Therefore any special alliances which we may have must be kept secret."

During that time every man in the county will make it his business to select more-than enough seed to plant his corn acreage in 1920.

Everything and a little bit more in the way of a musical diversion is "Oh Girlie, Girlie," appearing at the Turner Theatre on Wednesday Sept. 10, for one performance only. Jf It is a genuinely "funny farce, a rol licking story, supplemented pleasantly by a sparkling musical score, linking together a dozen or more clever lyrics, and the entirely possesses more points of comic interest than anything on its order this season. ^*^*f§%fflj| A very great deal of the comedy brilliance is made doubly clever by the drolleries of JOS. SHRINER, MORTON and GIBSON and ANN RAYMOND. The music of "Oh Girlie, Girlie" is tuneful in the extreme, the whistling la-la-la, of foottapping tunes. There is one number especially, called "When the Preacher Makes You Mine,", which is efficient reason, all of itself, for the delightfulness and popular appeal of t'Ob. Girlie, Girlie," and there's a glo rious Girlie, Girlie Chorus, which aids and abets the song and dance specialties, and together with the scenic equipment and stunning gowns, tends to make this one of the events of the theatre-going public. »^1 *&& JKtf»d Drf an Mrs. Sundt and Mrs. Henry Anderson from Hanska visited in New Ulm last Wednesday Peter Steffel has- returned home from Mapleton where he visited for some time with relatives. •&?
