Much hard language was indulged in and venomous feeling aroused in the House of Commons yes terdav afternoon over the retirement of Vice-Admiral Sir Francis C. Bndgo man-Bridireman from the position of first sea lord of the British admiralty. Admiral Lord Charles Beresford, who s a member or tne Mouse, ana Winston Spencer Churchill, first lord of the ad miralty, reviled eaen otner to tne ut most limit allowed in the British Par liament. "Backstair methods," "bribes and 1 threats,' ' "gross insinuations" and "skulking" wero some of the phrases cx changed, Briefly, Lord Charles Beresford charged Mr. Churchill with pursuing policy of bribes and threats. If, he said, the sea lords disagree with Mr. Churchill's autocratic assumption of the executive as well as the administrative authority, they were dismissed in inso lent letters. The reply given by Winston Church ill was crip and stinging. - Lord Charles Beresford, he said, had made a number of insinuations of a very gross character. He continued: "He has skulked In the background, waiting for an opportunity to make charges Unsupported by facts. He has levelled scurrilous attacks of espionage, favoritism, blackmail and inefficiency ngainst me, but I have never taken him too seriously. "He does not mean to be as offen sive as he really is. I am sorry he was not made admiral of the fleet, as I know how sore he was about it, but since I have been at the admiralty I have discovered that it would be very difficult to get a board of naval men to approve such an appointment.

"Cutlcura Boap and Ointment cured me of blackheads and bolls from which I suffered pain and lot of sloop for nor than a year. The trouble first started with pimples which I thought would go away, but later I bad my face and the side of my neck full of black beads and bolls which dis figured my face. I was ashamed to go out of the house. I tried everything recommended, but without doing me any good until I started to use Cutloura Boap and Ointment. They relieved tne of the pain and gar me a peaceful night. After using Cutlcura Boap and Ointment for two weeks I was cured.'! (Signed) J. F. Pomajsl, Mar. 34, 1912. Baby Had Irritating Breaking Out. 48 W. OTth St.. New York City. "My baby was taken with an Irritating breaking out on his face. As he always scratched, the sores would fester and finally coiod out pus which made more sores. This mads him cross and ugly. I purchased the Cutl cura Boap and Cutlcura Ointment.

LABOR NOTES OF WIDE INTEREST "in fares the a prey, land to hastening ills When wealth accumulates and men de cay,' Chicago millionaire, provide that a fountain and a monument be erected to the memory of 'Ike Cook,' a famous trotting horse of the early 'AO's, which he owned." And again we see where a Mrs. An thony, according to her own statement, spent nearly $o0,000 in one year for clothing only and where a Miss Draper spent $25,000 in one evening entertain ing Washington society at a butterfly ball. Then turn your race to the lower east side of New York, "rats' row" in Cincinnati, the alum districts of every city in the land and the mining regions, especially In the unorganised fields. Take lor instance West Virginia, when labor organizations are conducting a life and death struggle to improve the conditions ot the slaves of the mines. Don't tell me that those who are in abject poverty want to be so. Plutocra cy will not permit them to escape it. Whenever and wherever the robbed and oppressed attempt to get up from their knees ara stand erect on their feet, ev ery power in the political state is rushed into service to repress the rising spirit lor a better life. lhis is not a state of affairs confined to this country alone. It is the same all over the civilised world. Like causes have like effects and the forces that have driven us together into a union have driven the workers in other nations into their union and will drive us together into a political movement of the working class that both arms may be used to says unver uoiasmitn, ana though the r;Rnt the wrong, un(1.r which we have kwi,.h '"rr suffered during a brutal cast.

Almost daily can we see in the press where vast fortunes are being squandered by the idle rich, while those who do the world's work are con demned to a life of misery, poverty and despair. Our press is a chronicle of crime, a standing . indictment against capitalist society. Men, as a rule, are born to crime. Their environments foster the evil traits that reduce men to dishonesty. Riches have the same evil influence upon men that poverty breeds; the only difference is that they wor kin different direc tions. Harry Thaw was a victim to his environments. So is the man who robs and murders in order to get the stuff that rules the world. Honest toil does not receive its proper reward and that is why men resort to dishonest methods, And there are employers who would like to reward honest toil far better than they do, but the keenness of business rivalry, the competition that is sup posed to be the life of trade, will not permit it. It is no wonder that men will resort to crime when they are kept on the ragged edge of, life and read the following: "Miss Mary Astor Paul, daughter of James a. i'aul, jr., or the JJrexel firm made her debut recently at a ball that for grandeur, cost and novelty eclipsed the famous ball of four seasons, with which Mr. Paul introduced his oldpr daughter.

There is an appeal being made to Christmas shoppers that should not be. made in vain to trade unionists, and that Is to do their buying early, in order that men and women clerks may not be forced to work unreasonably long hours. The positions held by these workers aie trying, even under favorable conditions, as they have to satisfy the wants, real and fancied, of hundreds of purchasers each day, and to add to their burden by the needless imposition of waiting until the last minute to make your purchase is unfair and unjust so shop eariy, Wo note with interest that even the non-nuion manufacturers are finally waking up to the facts that they cannot successfully compete with the output of prisons, for at the recent convention of the National Association of Garment Manufacturers in Milwaukee, a augges tion was made that a committee be appointed to select a label to indicate that produits are made by free labor. If the non-union manufacturer, with the power that he has to enforce any kind of working conditions upon his employes, who enjoy "ir .ustrial freedom con tract" cannot compete with the prison contractor, wnat chance has an employ er who pay, living wages and whose em ployes work but eight hours a day, to meet this unfair and unhealthy compe tition 7 lie lias a chance, to be sure. if the worker insist upon having the union label attached to every article he purchases, but otherwise he and his em ployer are at the mercy of the non union manufacturer, as well as the pris on contractor, so get busy and k boosting for union-labled goods.
