VOL. I. a E Mammon is King. GEORGE C. FINDLBY. Oh, say, can you tell by our country's condi­ tion, Whether Freedom still lives in our borders so wide, Triumphantly reigning, performing her mis­ sion, While Plenty and Peace with the people abide? Whether Justice still rules in the courts of the nation And Equality dwells amid every station Ah, Corruption doth tarnish the red, white and blue, And Mammon oppresses the brave and the true. Cruel Mammon is king in this land that we love, While Bribery rules as his chosen premier The Dollar o'er Manhood enthroned is above, While Womanhood, thwarted in her holy career, The unwilling victim of Lust and of Power, Breeds dastards and cravens who tremble and cower While Corruption doth tarnish the red, white and blue, And Mammon oppresses the brave and the true. Awake, Oh, Columbia, the true and the brave, And arm thy true soldiers with thunders of right! Come down from the heavens, come up from the grave, Ye sires who for Liberty fought with t...

wealth in the hands of a few has al­ ways been, and must inevitably be, to glut the markets. Suppose there wae an island of one million peo­ ple and in that island wealth was pretty evenly distributed among the people. Suppose you were trading with those people, furnish­ ing manufactured goods for raw material. You would know that there was so many people in that country that wealth was pretty evenly distributed among them that upon the whole they needed so many hats, pairs of shoes, so many suits of clothes, etc. Under these conditions, you could safely load your ships with just so many hats, shoes, and suits of clothes, with reasonable confidence of sell­ ing them because the people need these things and have the money to buy them because of an equita­ ble distribution of wealth. Let us suppose that you have sold out your cargo and have returned home for another cargo, purposing to re­ turn about the time the hats, shoes, and clothes, you have sold them, are worn out. You return w...

WM. E. THE ASSEMBLY APPLAUDS. The Following Letter Was Read at the Last Meeting. MCEWEN, Sec.'y Fed. Trades Assembly, Duluth. My Dear Sir:—I thank you for your letter of this date. I en­ joyed being with the members of organized labor in Duluth on Labor Day, and speaking to them, I greatly appreciated the opportunity of talking to you and the welcome and hear ing you gave me. I assure you I have nothing but satisfaction with your arrangements, for with all that was going on on the grounds and the great crowd present, I do not see how you could con viently have bettered things. As to what you say about my defeat of course I am disap­ pointed, personally and other­ wise. I am not sorry, however, to have taken the stand I did. While defeat is perhaps a per­ sonal loss to me, it is not that which is to be most regretted. I regret that I shall not be in a position in congress where I could talk for the cause so near to me and, I believe, which so greatly concerns the great mass of the pe...

organized, and wages have risen over 100 per cent in three years. When does your gold standard come in? "If Christ came to America," asks the Coming Nation, "how long would it be before he would be in the chain gang?" Within an hour after he should begin on the dens of thieves. The Tobacco Trust has can­ celled all its contracts advertis­ ing Battle Axe plug. A million dollars spent in advertising that brand has been rendered unavail­ ing by the boycott. The postoffice department is the only public enterprise in America that comes anywhere near being the benefit to the peo­ ple that it might be, and it is the only one of any importance that has not been delegated to a corporation. The officers of the Miners' union at Leadville, Col., charg­ ed by the mine operators with the murder of Jerry O'Keefe during the recent labor troubles have been released, the district attorney acknowledging that he bad no evidence to impli­ cate them.

6 I.55p.m.^4t II. E. E. E5TEKLY, A Word About Cheap Goods. We keep them in some lines. Our only excuse for keeping them is that some people cannot be persuaded that high grade goods is the cheapest in the long run for instance, we have razors as low as fifty cents, but no one would care to take the chance of getting a good one at that price when we have others that are fully warranted and can be returned if not satisfactory. It may not be generally known but there is hardly an article that we sell that is not made in three or more grades and they all look alike. How are you going to tell then what you are get­ ting? The only way is to deal where everything that is graranteed can be re­ turned if unsatisfactory and your money refunded, and that place is CHAS. S. PIERCE, Hardware, Stoves and -Tinware. I9I8 W.

The Union Label, the Foe of the Sweat 5hop. The cigarmakers, ever push­ ing, vigilant to a degree, that is commendable, are again in the field, armed cap-a-pie against the tenement, child and convict system of making cigars. The tenement house cigar makers are usually composed of families, consisting of from six to nine persons, and are compelled to pay exorbtitant rents from $9 to $12 per month for two or three small misera­ ble rooms. These quarters, for dwelling purposes alone, are very much cramped, and the wonder is, says Ex-Commis sioner Dowling, in his report for 1S95 of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, how these people find room to sleep, yet they ply their trade in the same rooms, which are used for habitation. To see children crawling around the floor, others taking stems from out of the leaves filth and dirt abound, sickness among the children and the odors arising from the foul air, are conditions such as would surprise and sicken the least fastidious. So much has been sa...

8 nent republican politician of Mapleton, Minn., has made an assignment—liabilities, $32,000, to $18,000 assets. Evidently hit by the incoming tide of prosperity. As evidence of returning pros­ perity the green glass workers of Pittsburg were offered a 20 per cent cut in wages. The mat­ ter was compromised after a strike by accepting a reduction of 5 percent. The largest carpet mills in the world, located at Yonkers, N. Y., have shut down and 7,000 peo­ ple are out of employment. The reason given is the fear ol free coinage of sil— no that ain't it. It's because "the revival of trade expected to result from a republican victory has not a terialized." The Common Sense of It. Can organized labor, by pres­ ent methods, maintain its rights as against combinations ol capi­ tal engaged in production on in­ dividual account? This question stares organized labor in the face, and it must be answered. In pressing the de­ mand for an answer we do not forget the fact that it is wise sometimes t...

shrink back in their shells for fear some fool will point his finger at them, where will the truth find teachers? The protective feature of trades unionism was once even more unpopular than socialism today. Now that feature is almost universally recognized as legiti­ mate. Where would it have been had the men of the early days been arrant cowards, afraid to open their faces in defense of a just principle? A declaration by a labor or­ ganization isn't a very danger­ ous thing to make. Barring the so-called Chicago anarchists, we have not heard in this genera­ tion of men being burned at the stake or hung as malefactors for a belief. And there is now no community in this country so benighted as to repeat the Chi­ cago episode of ten years ago. But for defending the protec­ tive feature of trades unionism men have been imprisoned and shot and hung in free America, and so frequently that, unless they be men of exceptional prominence and ability, we never make any fuss about it. Let us b...

Mr.'Michael Raphael of Brook­ lyn, N. Y., has been in the city the past week in the interest of the cigarmakers blue label. Mr. Raphael addressed the meeting of the Trades Assem­ bly last Friday evening and urged the more general use of the cigar bearing the blue label. He is an earnest talker and conscientious worker and his efforts here will undoubtedly bear good fruit. Mr. Michael Raphael, of the Cigarmakers? union, Buffalo, N.
