WHEN THE WORM TURNS Tho big corporations, the finan-, ciers and the new breed of war , millionaires are entrenched be hind their dollars and their greed and can see nothing but their own 1 pleasure and their own will. Their j towering ambition is greater , wealth, and power. The labor unions, long suffer ing from capitalistic rapacity, j have assumed gigantic propor tions where by the nod of one , man they are able to paralyze the industry of the country, throw hundreds of thousands of people ; out of employment, and bring oth- j crs to sickness, starvation and the grave. Their power has gone ' to their heads. The two classes combined rep resent only a small proportion of the population of the country, yet they practically demonstrate ev-1 erything to the exclusion of all other classes. I The farmers, the doctors, law-J yers, merchants, editors, preach ers, and millions of others arc at ( their mercy and gasping under j the capitalistic and labor heels because they are not organized. They represent the great majority of the population, and yet they are dominated by the small minor ity. But the worm will endure just so much torment, and then it will turn. And this is equally true of the worms in the human family. In Russia the aristocrats plun dered the peasants until human nature could stand no more. Then the peasants arose in their might and tore the aristocrats asunder. Russia is a bolshevistic hell as a result of this misuse of power. Washington should remove its smoked glasses, take a look around, and note conditions as they exist. Some day the American worm may turn. It may tire of the capitalistic plundering and the wielding of the labor lash. It may send people to Washing ton who will represent the great masses, and not these two small classes. Then the financier with a bil lion in his fist will look no better than the labor dictator with a lash in his hand. And neither will look good at all. Even in America the classes are not immune from the wrath of the masses when desperation points the way.
