A. R. SIMONS THE SPEAKER
Chicago Man Sees Good to Come of
Present Struggle Between
The May day festival of the social
ists of the tri-cities took place last
evening at Claus Groth hall, Daven
port. A literary and musical program was
rendered and the address of the even
ing was delivered by A. R. Simons, of
Chicago, who spoke of the principles
and pledges of the socialistic party
and reviewed the industrial condi
tions of the country, both in the past
and the present. Mr. Simons is the
founder of the "Worker's Call." and at
president editor of the International
Socialistic Review. For a time he was
connected with- the various Chicago
dailies and secured his early training
and first ideas of socialism while re
porting upon a paper.
The substance of the speaker's re
marks was that the idea of the "world"
grows constantly larged. In ancient
times the world was known as a nar
row strip around the Mediterranean.
It has been widened by discoveries,
but is still unconnected with the com
ing of capitalism, steam transiortation
and electric communication, the world
becomes really the globe.
Then came the struggle for the con
trol of this world and its markets. This
is now practically completed and the
capitalists rule the world.
In the meantime it has solved the
problem of wealth and production, but
has separated the worker from tools
and the product. Now the struggle is
between capital and labor for the pos
session of these tools and products.
This is the last great world struggle
because a victory of the workers means
an end of the rulers and the ruled.
KnoiiKti for All.
The speaker laid particular empha
sis upon the assertion that today the
world's strpply was large enough to
meet all demands but that it was the
distribution of this supply which caus
ed hunger, poverty and famine. Like
wealth, the products are controlled by
a few and the masses are made to suf
fer by reason of this monopoly.
MAY CONTINUE BUSINESS
Cralle . Co. Considering Laving in a
New Livery Stock.
There is a possibility that L. F
Cralle & Co. will not discontinue the
livery business that the firm conducts
in this city. Some time aKo. it will be
recalled, the stock of their establish
ments in Rock Island and Moline was
disposed of for a farm at na, S.
D. Though thr stock has been taken
away by the new owner Cralle & Co
are still conducting a boarding stable
at the old stand in the Tindall barn on
Third avenue and it is not unlikely
that it will later be decided to put in
a complete new stock and continue in
the business as of yore. The lease on
the building does not expire for some
months and it may be renewed. The
