SEPTEMBER 10 1001 NUMBER 83 4 INDEPENDENT LABOR PRESS A NECESSITY Labor Given the Knife by the Great Molders of Public Opinion The Workers Must Establish and Maintain Their Own Press If They Expect to be Properly Represented f i1 1 ttj F L C l0 11 s No argument is needed to convince tile intelligent observer of passing events of the growing need of a labor press that has no entangling alliances with any of the agencies which have undertaken the task of emasculating the labor unions or destroying them entirely The most su perficial reader of the daily press is quick to notice the manner in which the news agencies of the world arts continuously and forever giving Labor the worst of it in every conceivable manner The Asso elated Press the chief agency in America is made up of one or more dally papers in the various cities of the country and the stuff put upon the wires and known as the Associated Press dispatches is usually gleaned from the matter prepared for these local papers Very often a proof of the matter set up for the daily papers is supplied the As sociated Press correspondent and often without any corrections or changes what ever the matter is telegraphed all over the country and appears in alt papers re ceiving the press report as Associated Press dispatches The foregoing recital is made for the purpose of showing that while the Asso ciated Press if damned for false stories especially in nearly dl cases where there a strike or other controversy between Capital mid Labor in reality the blame rests upon the daily papers whose acting under instructions have juggled the facts so as to make it appear Labor is wrong and that the em pl cra nrev pinorstited rhitf Tobe sure the doily paper merely serves its master in this It looks to the business interests the banks corporations manufacturers and large employers of labor generally for its support Anti obeying the impulse to defend the class interest of the element to which it be longs the dally paper uses all its powers to thwart organized labor confuse the union membership and help the employ ers to a victory that means no improve anent in the condition of the workers The facts above stated arc so patent and are being more and more recognized by wageearners as the days come and go that we deem an extended mention thereof to be superficial were it not for the moral the story contains Under the circumstances what is Labor to do Must it docilely submit to the fate of inaction Shall it cower and cringe before the public gaze because it has been lied about and villified and whipped back to the factory shop or mill through the misrepresentation of men in control of the daily press interests opposed to those of the workers No I There is a better of the problem The thing to do is to build up a LABOR by Labor and controlled by Labor Through your own press fellowworkers you may become powerful but not otherwise With a medium that is under your owner ship and control your organization may become a power not now more than Is economic ate pressowned news gatltering reporters that whose solution dreamed of To establish mad make re cure such a Labor press is the duty of the hour You must have your own medium to give utterance to your demands crys tallze the sentiment that may be created in your favor and finally do battle for you in every conflict in which you may be engaged Tint WORKKR is the only paper within several hundred miles of Louisville that Is organized and established on the right basis It is the only one that is owned by the forces of Labor and therefore is the only medium through which the favors of those friendly to Labor ever reach the point for which they arc intended It is the only Labor paper Everyone who reads the Louisville daily papers will recall that within the past couple of years they vied with each other in their efforts to get up a union labor department Regularly each week a column or two was devoted to the news of the unions Where arc these now When they have not en tircly disappeared they have dwindled to virtually nothing This is a manifesto tion of the studied purpose of the Em ployers Association and all its friends to give no recognition to organized labor except to oppose and belittle this great movement A representative of one of the daily papers in a semiconfidential manner gave the writer the tip several months ago that from that time on there would be less labor union news in the City Haily paberS Mian1 fcuT ternary to give Events have proven that he knew whereof he spoke Labor is to be ignored or if given any considera tion at all it is to be given the knife Again let the unions understand that they may expect nothing of value from their natural enemies and in the final analysis the whole question is sifted down to and rests upon and is controlled by the economic interests of the employing class as opposed to those interests of the working class We do not blame the employers for defending their interests but the workers MUST awaken to a proper defense of TiiKiR interests and this can be done only by and through the press which and control and not through the press that almost without exception gives Labor the hot enl of it in every great issue and on every great question Set up and support your own press and keep it true to its purpose Therein lies your only safeguard

wo have reread of Mr Gomiiors So January 1850 in tho city of London England was born a robust healthy and remarkably flnofonucd baby boy to a young couple that had recently crossed from Holland to attempt fortunes in tho great and ancient City above named It is stated oil good au thority that tho newcomer at once Mt in to kick not finding conditions as would wish thorn and all that know him can without hesitation swear that ho its never up to tho present time found conditions us ho would wish to sea them or as good as they could bo made and hence ho has boon most oronsly kicking over since and trying with a faithful and indefatigable bud energy to right tho wrongs that do but should not exist What ho has accomplished for tit amelioration and clovatiou of labor null tho tolling masses is common knowledge to all nud as wo have stated herein generally well known His genealogy on too maternal sldo is easily traced hack to Austria on tho paternal side to Franco Ho attended tho common schools of London from his sixth to his eleventh year when he was placed at tho shoo trade for tho purpose of tering its mysteries It seems that ho had not been con sulted nor was this now calling tastofrl to him and ho kicked and as usual mado his protest felt and and striker and ho was apprenticed to tlA trade of his father that of clgarniakuip- Ho worked in tho factory during lira improved himself every gjwro mome when not in tho factory or school its reading writing and arithmetic When ho was but 13 years of ugo his parents loft old London to take up and maku their future homo in tho United States They arrived In Now York July 29 1803 During his apprenticeship tho aboli tion ofBlavery and tho merits of tho controversy between the North ond South wore frequently discussed in tho different shops and among tho laboring classes of London as no doubt else where and it was in such arguments and debates in his tender years that Samuel like MaCanlly and Scott showed his marvolou kuowledgo of an dent and current listory that aston ished his companions and auditors Ho advocated tho abolishment of chattel slavery as ho has over since worse slavery tho enslavement of the masses Mr Gompers never ludes to child labor only as a crimp and deplores that so many like himself are being deprived in their tender years of sunshine home and school and forced to toil for a living boforo they have tho strength or mind to really undertake to toll much less to intelligently and ad vantageously direct their budding skill In 1804 when only 14 years old Mr Gompers became a member of tho Cigarmakcrs Union and has hold a con tinuous card over since enjoying tho proud distinction of holding tho loiigesj continuous membership in tho organiza tion In 1882 ho was elected to tho Presi deny of the American Federation of Labor and has held tho office continu ously over since with tho exception of ono year 1883 John OBrien of the coal minors organization was elected that year and tho convention realizing their mistake prevailed on Mr Oom pers to again stand at tho and ho has been succeeding liim sell since F T 0 Thursday night Sept 15 TO ADVERTISERS Printers Ink tho recognized

paper of August 20th you say Mr Donnelly lender of tho stock yard strike in is a Socialist shows that he is informed on tho labor question Socialism spells anarchy oppression Its ples cannot bo held by a Christian The fist that Mr Donnelly lIes bo come a Socialist If ho has really become one indicates not tint ho is badly in formed on tilt labor question but rather that ho Is beginning to under stand what the labor movement means Your assertion tlmt Socialism spoils anarchy government oppression and labor slavery is simply a falso tinged with moro or less of malice and that is nil Btitjjyou nro making known to tho working class and they will understand how to profit by tie knowledge tho po sition you occupy in this struggle be tween the working class and the capi tnllst class You are for tho capitalists and against tho workers for tho fleecers and against their victims for tho robbers and against tho robbed for the rich and against tho poor You say Its fundamental princi pies cannot bo hold by n Christalu They cannot oh And why not Is Christianity so thoroughly and irrevoca bly committed to tho perpetuation of tho institution of wage slavery that in order to espouse tho cause of economic equality of industrial freedom ono must abandon the Christian religion I can hardly believe this your dictum to this effect notwithstanding But theory or rather your assertion that Christianity is irroo ousidorablo with tho fundamental prin ciples of SocialIsm woro true What TTTTTTJTTT T T T TT T T JlocCHflIr mbU good iN thntllll soon U 11111 lJH j IIi Ii t A workingman donut politics assertion supposo your 1 1 then It would simply mean n gradual loss to tho church of the most intelligent active ambitious and Independent ole moat of its working class members who fool capable of doing thoir own political thinking and voting for themselves I know that you are always ready and oven eager to rccolvo endorsements at tho hands of rich men lint can you afford to alienate from tho church tho of hundreds of thousands of working men in order to gain rich mens gold If you can it will only go to show that tho suspicion which in many quar ters already amounts to conviction that tho salvation of souls is not tho only business of your profession is not alto gether unfounded Why did you not toll your renders what tilt fundamental principles of So cialism are and then explain why n Christian cannot hold them If tho fundamental principles of So cialism aro erroneous will you pleas point wherein Or do you expect your renders to accept your editorial opinions us infallible utterances and your deci sinus as authoritative decrees When you say a Christian cannot bo n Socialist cannot support tho Socialist party or vote Its ticket you mean that so far as your power to prevent it ox tends tie Christain citizens of tills re public shall exorcise at their peril the constitutional right of alHllating with that political organization their best judgment approves Socialists hold that tho people of every country should havo tho right of self government that It Is tho right of tho majority to determine tho form of government or organized society under which thoy aro to live that if tho working class shall bo convinced that it is to their interest to organize them selves into a class political party to ad vance their class Interests they bravo the right to do so and that if said working class constitute the majority In may nation they havo tho right to gov ern said nation if thoy see fit to do so Do you say a Christian cannot hold to these principles Socialists hold to those principles and thoy arc educating mid organizing thor fellowworking men of tho world to hold with them the fundamental truth that tho land of every nation should bo owned collective ly by tho people of that nation that tho machinery of production mum distribu tion should bo owned by those who pro duce and operate It that consequently rent interest and profit should bo abol ished that those who will not yrmkv being able to work shall not eat Now do you say a Christina cannot hold these principles Will you plcaso point out wherein they nro wrong If you cannot jioiiit out wherein Socialists aro wrong you cannot expect us to abandon our convictions JAM II AUNOLD WORLDS FAIR Of 1904 Ohio Valley Worker Will Pay Expense of Trip for Contest Winners
