Are Opposed To Saloon And Tha
Use Of Liquor
If the saloon Is the "Poor Man's
Club," as Its advocates claim, whj
have bo many prominent labor lead
ers condemned the use of that term?
If the saloon is the 'Toor Man's
Club," why did John Mitchell, former
president of the United Mine Worker
of America, and one of the ablest ex
ponents of trade unionism in tha
country, say: "Almost every distur
bance in the ranks of labor can be
traced to some connection with the
Why did John Lennon, treasurer of
the American Federation of. Labor,
say: "The saloon is the enemy cf
the people. I am against it and will
do all in my power to put it out of
Why did James W. Kline, presi
dent of the International IJrotherhood
of Blacksmiths and Helpers, ' say:
"Barroom demagogues have caused
the loss of life, property and public
confidence and many times have
brought defeat to the cause of labor."
Yes, the saloon is the poor man's
club, but it is the club that is used
to beat him over the head and ren
ders him inaccessible to the ideals
and aspirations of the labor move
ment, and causes him to forget the
sound principles upon which the or
ganized labor movement stands.
Compare the amount of capital in
vested in the liquor industry with tho
amount of wages paid to the workers
in that Industry and you will find that
the liquor industry is tho most
cruel exploiter of labor under the
present Industrial system.
But the worker in the liquor in
dustry not only pays In low wages
tor the unique privilege of helping
make the brewers rich, but at a ter
rible cost of life.
The death rate among the brewery
workmen in America is 12 per cent,
higher than the normal death rate,
while the death rate among waiters
in hotels, restaurants and clubs, whero
liquor is sold is 77 per cent higher.
This high death rate has a direct
bearing on the question as to bow
much the worker receives as to his
"share" of the business.
The life of the average bartender
Is shortened seven years because of
the business be is in, according to
Charles Stelze, the noted trade union
social worker of New York.
The open saloon creates thousands
of industrial outcasts who are thrown
on to the' labor market This in turn
creates a cheap labor supply with
whom yon must compete.
Will you vote for the licensed sa
loon and thereby place your enemiei
in a position to undermine the labor
Every labor leader in the country
cautions his men to refrain from tha
use of liquor in times of Industrial
If it is a good thing for the worker
to stay away from liquor in times of
Industrial war, why isn't it a good
thing from him to stay away from
it in times of industrial peace?
