Union Labor Drifting.
It in now conceded by close observ-
ers i>t the trend of union l»»njr and
Socialistic conditions tliat the union
labor movement is rapidly drifting in-
to the Socialist party. Hvery victory
that capital wins over organised la-
bor driven the workers more and
more into the Socialist rank* where
they aro taught that the ballot box
and not the labor strike in the place
lor the workers to win. When cap-
ital, by the aid of corrupt court# and
hired military authorities, succeeds in
rendering impotent the effort# of un-
ion labor organisation* and thereby
drive* them into the Socialist party,
there will be something doing ami
plutocracy will not be long in finding
out that while it has succeeded in
vanquishing a comparatively harm
less but pesky little beaut, it lias fall
eli Into the hands of a mighty mou-
nter that will crush its very life out.
plutocracy, like tdaveocracy, will
have to be cited, but only when the
last ditch ii reached and its destruc-
tion is complete will it see. Mr. Bry-

just like his prototype, the gradual
emancipation fellow, did a generation

of emancipation for the negro
slave, but was not an ' abolitionist."
Hut he was drifting, jutd we

cating gove rnment ownership of pub
He utilties history is only repeating
itself. Watch Government Owner-
ship Bryan an* his followers and the
rilll-Hedged M.a>jialists as they drift
#nearer anil nearer together! To fav-
or gradual emancipation as against
the abolition of slavery was a distinc-
tion without a difference then, and to
fav«u* government ownership as
against Socialism is a distinction with-
out a difference now.
