. AND THEN WHAT
(From the El Paso Herald.)
If the workers were to take posses
sion of the industries let us say of
the mines of the southwest and ex
ploit them for the common benefit of
all, who would replace these mines
when-they are exhausted? Who would
una prospects and develop these
prospects into paying prospects 2
The, thought comes up in connection
wiihTthe reports that the numerous
agents of the' Industrial Workers of
the World are again carrying on a re
cruiting campaign in the mining
camp, signing up miners into member
ship through use of the persuasive ar
gument of short hours, inordinately
high, wages and eventual confiscation
of the mines.
The enrolling agents of the I. W. W.
make their argument more convincing
by drawing 'comparison between the
wages the miners receive and the pro
fits accruing to the operating compan
ies. For purposes of discussion they
do not mind exaggerating the latter
figures if the tnlei- figures are no
deemed sufficiently alluring.

Consider the case of the Denn-Ari-zona,
which isnow-beginning ,to take
its place among he big producers of
the southwest. It ought 'to go on a
dividend paying basis in the future
and therefore is a property which' th'e
I. W. 'W. and the socialists would like
to confiscate "for the common good."
But how about the earlier history of
this property? More than $2,000,000
was sunk into the prospect without
one dollar of return. The sum. in
fact, was nearly double, when one cori1
siders the interest on it and the tact
that it was invested about ten years
without any revenue whatever in re
turn. The money was wisely invested
by competent engineers but the fact
remains that for years it represented
a profitless expenditure and a total
loss of the men who risked it.
The history of the Denn-Arizona is
precisely that of the United Verde and
the United Verde Extension, except
for difference in time. There were
the same big expenditures, the same
losses by stockholders, delays and dis
appointments before the tide turned
and the flood of money going out be
gan coming in.
Moreover, there was no assurance
that it would ever come in. Many
prospects swallow fortunes and never
disgorga'a cent. Would the' socialists
and the I. W. W. chance the invest
ment of millions in a prospect which
might prove'va' flat-failure-2-provided
they had the millions in the first
SACRAMENTO, Sept 13. He was
out for a good time, but his celebra
tion threatened to get the best of him
so he telephoned for the police.
"Send a patrol.wagon to the Colusa
bar," was what Sergeant Higgins
heard over the phone, "there's a big
fellow hero that's going to get into
trouble, He tliinks he's the hardest
egg 'that ever' came from Petaluma',
You'd better lock him up.'"
"Who's talking?" asked the Ser
geant. "Jack Davis," came" the answer.
"And who's the man you want ar
rested?" "Jack Davis."
His request was granted.
It is a good thing tb terni just how
big this government is and how its
long arms can reacli down to the in
dividual. It is much bigger than any
.ne man, ann-'f-the govomr.'ons wants;

place ?r 8? 'tfieyf"have the- gov
ernment' set aside 'a. few millions fox
the investigation-of-evexy prospect en
countered? ? '
Or would -they have private capital
take, all the risks of developing doubt
ful prospects into' paying properties,
only to have them confiscated "for the
common goqd"ias soon as theybegan
to pay? ,iSuch a proposition' is so rid
iculous as not to require comment.
But n6t more ridiculous than the whole
program-of the I. W. W. Itris -plain
enough that no one would take the(
iruuuie lu iinu a prospect or invest a
dollar in it afterwards if assured it
wouldTbe taken away from him when
on a paying basis'.
Most people realize the absurdity of
the I. W. W. plan and it would not
require this discussion except for the
renewed activity of the traitorous or
ganization, many of whose leaders
have just been convicted on charges
of conspiracy to interfere with and ob
struct the war program of the United
States. Not a worker ought to be
misled by the specious appeals of these
charlatans, but some of them are be
ing misled. The I. W. W. in Arizona
and elsewhere is now trying to make
workers believe that its program is not
traitorous, but that it is waging a
campaign to change industrial condi
tions merely. Let every laboring man
look beneath the surface of the confis
cation plan, as above indicated, then
look back over the record of the I. W.
W. since the United States declared
a state of war with Germany, and then
give every I. W. W. recruiter the an
swer he denerves.
