THE BETTER PART,
HARVEY KEESE.
Better to know the truth, that maketu
free,
Than revel in the treasures of the
dead;
Better to open thine own eyes and see
Than blindly trust to what men may
have hjiid.
Better than dreamn of heaven's future
bli8,
Or phantom pictures of another life,
It is to live thy future life in this
Bring heaven down into this vale of
strife.
Better to touch with gentle hand a
heart
That hath been wounded in the shade
of death,
Than from the sinful turmoil stand
apart
And gaze enraptured and with bated
breath
Into a viHion-land that fancy weaves
' Beyond the clouds that deck eternity.
Better than painting angels on the
leaves
Of book or sermon, tale or homily,
It is to show that angels walk the earth
Clad in the flesh of pure humanity;
To open well-springs in a land of dearth,
And prove man's strength in his in
firmity. Fair Play.
NEW YORK NOTES.
Dr. George H. Everett, of the Nation
alist Club, will lecture at next Friday
evening's Lyceum meeting on the sub
ject of "Ethics of Co-operation."
The entertainment committee of the
German Section and their assistants
deserve praise for the splendid memo
rial festival in honor of Lassalle, which
they prepared at Maennerchor Hall last
Saturday evening. Lassalle's idea of
political uction was evidently agreeable
to the audience, who applauded when it
was mentioned.
CITY COMMITTEE.
Special Circular to Workingmen' Or
ganizations. The City Committee of the S. L. P.
has decided to send the following special
circular to all labor organizations in
New York city :
Citizens You are invited to send
two delegates from your organization to
a Labor Convention under the auspices
of the New York Sections, of the Social
ist Labor Party for the purpose of con
sidering labor laws to be submitted to
such convention, which will be, called
by the County Committee of the S L.
P. between September 15 and October
1 next at the New York Labor Lyceum,
25 East Fourth street.
In view of the many failures which
have attended the attempts of work
men's organizations to permanently or
ganize politically for the benefit of their
class, the Socialist Labor Party, whose
platform emphasizes the emancipation
of labor, has determined to attempt the
organization of a political movement,
offering the services ot their established
organization to that end, and thus
guarding against the fate of former
movements.
The labor laws to be submitted will
cover the following demands, which
were recommended by the International
Socialist Workmen's Congress held at
Paris last July:
1. The eight-hour maximum labor day
for all workingmen.
2. Prohibition of child labor under
the age of fourteen, and a reduction of
the hours of labor of all minors be
tween fourteen and eighteen years of
aire to six hours a day.
3. Prohibition of night labor, except
for Buch industries as require natural
uninterrupted attention.
4. Prohibition of woman labor in all
industries especially injurious to the
female organism.
5. Prohibition of night labor for
women and male laborers under eigh
teen years of age.
0. A leisure time extending over at
least thirty-six hours in succession per
week.
7. Prohibition of such industries and
such methods of labor especially inju
rious to the health of the workingmen.
8. Abolition of the truck system in all
its industrial establishments, inclusive
of industries carried on in dwellings.
9. Extensive inspection by State fac
tory inspectors, at least half of whom
to be selected by the workingmen them
selves. Propositions for the abolition of cer
tain unjust provisions in existing laws
which are now injuring the interests of
the working people will also be duly
considered.
In extending this invitation to you, we
assure you that it shall be our endeavor
to make this convention thoroughly
democratic, and no attempt on the part
of political heeler9 and anarchists to
manipulate the convention for personal
ends will be tolerated. No delegates
who are known to be connected with
the old political parties or anarchist
groups will be recognized.
Whatever laws may be decided upon
by this convention, the 8. L. P. offer
the facilities of its organization as a
proper means of enacting such laws
through pledged candidates if elected.
The particulars and details in this
matter will be presented to the conven
tion for its sanction.
1'ITY IOMM1TTEE, S. L. 1'.
BROOKLYN' AMERICAN SECTION.
A very interesting discussion meeting,
sprinkled with a little business, was
held lat." Tuesday evening by alaive
named Section at the Brooklyn Labor
Lyceum.
The Organization Plan of the Kings
County Committee was read and then
looked into carefully, paragraph by
paragraph. Parts of the constitution of
the S. L. P. were taken up for discussion
for the general good of the members.
The principle subject of the evening was
the London dock laborers' strike.
The members of the Brooklyn Ameri
can Section are unanimous in their sen
timents that the London strike is mak
ing socialists by the hundreds and even
thousands, not only among the strikers
themselves, but among the people resid
ing in London generally, as the strike is
affecting them disastrously.
Our organizer, Comrade Sliafer, in
formed us that he had invited Comrade
Lucien Sanial to address either the new
branch Section, at the corner of Grand
and Keap street, next Friday, or the
Brooklyn American Section next Tues
day, as he desired.
It was regularly moved and seconded
that the Brooklyn American Section at
tend the meeting at Grand and Keap
streets in a body next Friday.
A QUESTION OF LAW.
About two months ago the German
Section, of New York, through a com
mittee prefetred charges against four
members of the National Executive
Committee, namely, V. L. Rosenberg,
W. Hintze, Adolph Gerecke and Joseph
H. Sauter; then, through another com
mittee, "tried"' the alleged delinquents.
The American Section, hearing that
charges had been preferred against Jhe
National Executive Committee, also ap
pointed a committee to investigate, in
structing it to sit with the oommittee of
the German Section, if permitted; but
the American Section's committee was
refused admittance on the ground that
the committee of the German Section
hadno authority so to do. Consequently
the alleged facts were not officially
brought before the American Section's
committee, and they could not make
any report. Meanwhile, too, the Na
tional Board of Supervision had sent in
its circular which denied jurisdiction in
the matter in these words:
"Wrhile the right of the Section of
New York to bring charges against the
National Executive Committee, or single
members of the same, or officers of the
party, is fully recognized, the Section,
however, has no authority whatsoever
to examine the members of the National
Executive Committee, or to investigate
the charges made against them, but
must only submit the charges to the
Board of Supervision, who will care
fully and conscientiously examine and
decide about them."
Finally, in a meeting composed of
members of the German and Jewish Sec
tions, between seventy and eighty votes
were cast in favor of withdrawing said
four members from the National Execu
tive Committee. The membership of
the German Settion is between seven
and eight hundred. The American Sec
tion did not take part in these proceed
ings, holding them to be illegal.
At the regular monthly business meet
ing of the American Section, held Aug.
19, a committee of two from the Ger
man Section requested permission to
speak. The chairman askeJ the spokes
man of the committee whether the sub
ject of his remarks and the documents
he proposed to read debated the charges
brought against the Executive, and upon
receiving an answer in the affirmative,
decided that it could not be permitted,
as such debate would be contrary to the
Constitution (Section Regulations, 3),
which provide? that
"charges against members shall not be
debated until the special committee, to
be elected for this purpose, has thor
oughly investigated the case and re
ported to the Sections."
A written request of the German Sec
tion for a joint meeting (object of pro
posed meeting not stated in request)
was refused, the American Section
holding that such meeting could not de
cide upon anything, and would conse
quently be useless.
The following resolutions were adopted
at the same meeting of the American
Section (Aug. 19):
Whereas, The New York German Sec
tion. S. L. P., by ratifying the action of
its Central Committee in the matter of
certain charges against the National
Executive Committee, by debating the
same at length before a proper investi
gation was made, and by voting to sus
pend four members of the National Ex
ecutive Committee, three of whom are
members of the American Section, have
violated the following provisiuns of our
Constitution:
Firstly. Article IV, paragraph 2,
a to c, declaring it to be primarily
the duty of the National Board of
Supervision, to watch over the uc
tions of the National Executive
Committee, to settle all difficulties
in the Party involving questions of
principle, and, when necessarv, to
suspend any Boards, Executive Com
mittees, Party officers or members,
subject to appeal to the general
Party vote.
Secondly. Article V, paragraphs,
declaring that Sections shall have
jurisdiction over their own mem
bers. Thirdly. Section Regulations,
paragraph !!, declaring that charges
cgainst members shall not be de
bated before a thorough investiga
tion and report to the Section.
Fourthly. General Regulations,
paragraph 4, declaring that all offi
cers, boards or committees in the
Party shall be subject to dismissal
by a general vote of their constitu
ents, with the right to appeal to the
Board of Supervision, the constitu
ents of the National Executive Com
mittee being, to all intents and
purposes of our Constitution, the
National Convention in the first in
stance, and the Party at large in the
next and last instance; and
Ultcreax, The said proceedings of the
German Section were also in conflict
with its own resolutions theretofore re
peatedly passed to the effect that all
questions ot importance and such as
affect the whole Party shall be sub
mitted to the general vote of each
Branch separately; and
Whercax, The National Board of Su
pervision has warned the German Sec
tion of the illegality of their action, which
warning was tabled, and in this manner
wilfully and arrogantly ignored; and
Whereon, The New York Jewish Sec
tion, without any investigation what
ever on its part, has simply sanctioned
the said action of the German Section
and adopted a similar course; and
Whereas, All of the aforesaid illegal
proceedings are calculated to destroy
the Party discipline and to undermine
and ruin the very existence of the Party
organization;
Mesolved, That the American Section
calls upon the National Board of Super
vision either forthwith to suspend the
said German and Jewibl) Sections ex
cepting such of their members respec
tively, who disavow the said illegal pro
ceedings, declare their continued allegi
ance to our Constitution and to abide by
its provisions; or to submit the ques
tion of such suspension to the general
vote of the Party, tho result to be pub
lished within six weeks from the time
this present resolution is placed in its
hands; and further
lletolved, That copies of this resold
tion be printed in the Workmen's Ad
vocate atul Ikr Sozialist, subject to the
approval of the National Board of Su
pervision. Notwithstanding the warning of the
National Board of Supervision, the Ger
man and Jewish Sections held a meet
ing, at which they elected four men to
be members of the National Executive
Committee, namely, S. E. Schevitsch,
R. Praast, Karl Ibsen and Otto Reimer.
134 votes were cast. The American
Section took no part in this illegal ac
tion, although some of the members of
the Section, contrary to the vote passed
at the meeting of Aug. It), were present
and took part, being encouraged to do
so by vote of the members of the Ger
man and Jewish Sections present.
Last week an invitation to Bend a rep
resentative to appear before the Board
of Supervision at Philadelphia was re
ceived by the organizer of the American
Section, and he hurriedly called the
organizing committee of the Section to
gether, who voted to send Comrade
Bushe to defend the resolutions adopted
by the Section.
The decision of the Board of Super
vision was received by the Secretary of
the National Executive Committee, and
the following is a translation of the
document:
OFFICIAL.
BOARD OF SUPERVISION.
EXTRAORDINARY SESSION, FRIDAY, Aug.
3d, 18&9.
l'rexent: All the members of the Board
of Supervision, and upon invitation,
Alexander Jonas, representing the Ger
man and Jewish Sections of New York;
J. F. Bushe, representing the American
Section of New York; Comrades Rosen
berg, Hintze and Gerecke, of the major
ity of tbe National Executive Commit
tee; Meyer, of the minority of the same;
K. Ibsen, for himself and the other
three comrades (Schevitsch, Praast and
Reimer), w ho had been elected in place
of the "withdrawn" Rosenberg, Hintze,
Gerecke and Sauter, as members of the
National Executive Committee.
Subject before Vie meeting: Appeal of
Rosenberg and comrades against their
withdrawal by the New York Sections,
or the German and Jewish Sections of
New York. At the same time, consid
eration of the advisory proposition of
the American Section of New York.
After hearing the documents and all
concerned, unanimously
lienulved, The appeal is admissible.
The withdrawal of the four members
named was illegal and is annulled. The
subsequent election of substitutes ii an
nulled, and the present members of the
National Executive Commit tee shall con
tinue in the exercise of their functions.
h'casoiii : The interference of the
Board of Supervision is formally jus
tified by the propositions un ler discus
sion. In point of fact it may be re-
marked mat im only article of the Con
stitution which refers to "dismissals" is
No. 4 ol the "General Regulations." It
provides that:
"All officers, boards or commit
tees in the party shall U subject to
withdrawal by a general vote of
their electors."'
This definition is generally held; no
exception is expressly specified, nor can
such he accepted, in view of the plain
language (Fussuiuj) of this rule. Infer
ence is indeed made by the appellants to
paragraph ;!, article 2. chapter IV,
"Board of Suervisio:i," and the deduc
tion made that this Board only has the
right to suspend members of the Na
tional Executive Committee. But then
it expressly says "suspend," which indi
cates a transient or provisional removal,
while dismissal (Ablnntf mhj) means a
definite withdrawal from an office or
duty. Therefore there is no doubt that
the members of the National Executive
are subject to dismissal. Besides, there
is a precedent in this connection (Fa
bian, New York).
The question now' arises as to who
may dismiss them. The article quoted
says: "by general vote of their electors
(Wi'ihler;. The English constitution
says, instead of electors, "constituents,"
which expression the Board of Super
vision considers fairly synonymous
(ziemlieh (itcichbedeuteud). The word
I'rabxtimmnng (general vote) is mani
festly to be interpreted to mean tint the
dismissal cannot be done by committees
(Central Committees of Sections, etc.),
but only through the membership of
the Party themselves.
Now, who are the "electors" of the
members of the National Executive
Committee? Here it must be noted
that the Party at its convention decides
upon a locality whose party membership
shall elect the members of the National
Executive Committee. The conclusion
is compulsory that the members of the
Party in New York, which locality the
last Party convention designated us the
seat of the National Executive Com
mittee, are the electors of the members
of the same. It does not alter the case
that the same are officers of tbe whole
Party. The Party has simply trans
ferred its' powers in this matter to the
party niembeis in New York. So that
when theste withdraw the mandates
from those elected, dismiss them (sic
euriicldierufen), they exercise their con
stitutional right.
Such a case, however, is not under
consideration. It is admitted on all
sides that the dismissal of these four
members was decided upon at a meeting
specially called for the purpose by the
Central CouimitUe of the German Sec
tion of New York. The German Sec
tion does not represent the entire mem
bership of New York. It is claimed
and not denied that the other Sections
there were called upon, and the attempt
made, respectively, to take a separate
vote. It is to be assumed, then, that
an addition of the votes would have fol
lowed and the result established. But
the other Sections in New York were
not compelled to obey such a command
of the German Section or its agent.
The American Section refused to de
bate the question, and tor this reason a
decision ot the party membership of
New York is not under consideration.
The proportionate strength of the Sec
tions does not affect the case. What
influence the participation of the mem
bers of the American Section may have
had upon the debates and decisions of
those meetings is not to be calculated.
It is hardly necessary to further men
tion that the German Section was riot
empowered to assume jurisdiction over
three members of the American Section,
as was done in this case. The dismissal
of members of the present National
Executive Committee is only allowable
by a majority vote of all members of
the various Sections of New York, so
far as they take part in a meeting called
for discussion and action upon a corres
ponding proposition. Such a meeting
cannot be called by a single Section.
There is in New York, as has been es
tablished, a standing representative body
of all Sections under the name of "City
Committee." This committee can, by a
majority vote, arrange a general meet
ing in the usual manner for objects such
as those in question, and all Party mem W
beis are in duty bound to subordinate
themselves to its decisions. The one
sided decision of the German Section
cannot be recognized. A 11 other pro
cedures in the case, namely, the elec
tion of substitutes, are therefore void.
The Board of Suprvision cannot re
frain from designating the quoted arti
cle of the Constitution (No. 4 General
Regulations) as misdirected (yerfehlt) so
far as it includes the National Executive
Committee in its general meaning.
Through it the changing majorities of
the local membership are fret to exer
cise an influence on the National Execu
tive Committee, which the Party hardly
desired. But the definition (liextirimuny)
is obvious. The Board of Supervision
is especially boui.d to sustain the Con
stitution. They cannot interpret its
provisions away, and the definite lan
guage of this article does not admit of
interpretation (laxnt ubeihaupt l)eutun
yennicht zu). The Boanl of Supervis
ion will propose an amendment of the
same at the next Party convention, to
the effect that tbe dismissal of the Na
tional Executive Committee, or individ
ual members of the same, may not lie
ordered by local memberships.
For the information of the members
of the Party, it may be added that after
the Board of Supervision decided on
formal grounds that the dismissal of the
four members was invalid, the Board
had no cause for examining the mate
rial reasons w hich caused the action of
the German Section.
For the Board of Supervision,
