The destruction of the' Taft banner
by vandal hands is attracting little at
tention here. "Old Bill" Bentley, a lo
cal sleuth of high repute, has been
commissioned to run down the perpe
trators of the outrage, and Mr. Bryan
has offered a reward of $100 for evi
dence to convict, but in a general way
the city is amused. Many believe that
politics had nothing at all to do with
the fall of the Taft banner and that
trade unionists cut the rope. The
banner was made by non-union labor.

The way the printers had to scurry
around for heat right after the flood
of last week was something to remem
ber. Gasoline . torches, kerosene
lamps and any old thing to make
heat were resorted to, and by hard

to get out on reasonable time. It

TALKS WITH THE TOILERS.
Special Truths From Many View
points, by Rev. Charles Stelzle.
It would be difficult to think of a
shade of religious or economic belief
which was not represented In the
Sociological Conference which it was
my privilege to attend during the first
week in July, at Sagamore Beach, on
Cape Cod Bay. About one hundred
men and women of prominence in the
sociological world discussed for three
days the questions of trades union
ism and socialism, and the relation
of the church to these problems.
Everyone who spoke, from John
Spargo, the socialist, to Mrs. Edwin
D. Mead, the exponent of universal
peace, was an acknowledged expert
on the subject which he discussed.
The conference was opened with a
paper written by John Mitchell, on
"The Philosophy of Trades Unionism."
John F. Tobin of Boston led the dis
cussion. Dean Hodges of the Protes
tant Episcopal Theological Seminary
of Cambridge, Mass., prepared a paper
on "The Trades Union from the Point
of View of the Church." "The Spiritual
Significance of Socialism," and "The
Socialized Church" were discussed on
the succeeding days.
Editors, college presidents, social
settlement workers, authors and
writers, trades union officials, minis
ters, business men, professors, and
workers in many phases of social life,
freely -presented their views. There
wasn't a dull moment. Everybody
was on the job every minute of the
time, while the meetings were in prog
ress. The speakers had come from
every walk of life. There were some
who had come up from the slum and
the tenement. Others had always
lived in homes of luxury and refine
ment. Most of the members of the
conference had come direct from the
firing line, and -they were there for
business.j There was no time for plat
itudes and common-places. There was
no evasion. The talks were true ex
pressions of very real experiences, or
of genuine desire to get at tbe troth.
There wasn't a fool speech made.
There was no trace of bitterness.
Whatever feeling of bitterness there
may have been in the hearts of some,
was hidden, although sometimes it
would have been an easy matter to
have caused an explosion, had not
everyone respected - me others'
At times the audience was deeply
moved as the injustices of the toilers
were presented. Going back to their
respective vocations, the men and
women who-listened to the talks will
become more aggressive in their ef
forts to alleviate and finally wipe out
It was surprising to note how many
things were held in common by these
workers who came from so many and
such varied experiences. They were
all seeking, in tbe way that seemed
best, the uplifting of the human, race.
This discovered that to quarrel among
themselves was fatal. There were
enough things upon which all eoald
unite to keep everybody busy.
It is interesting that this remark
able conference was called together
and entertained noder Christian aus
pices. The host was Mr. George W.
Coleman, a churchman of prominence
in Boston. There probably has sever
been another conference just like it.
The man who believes that be alone
possesses tbe troth is a back num
ber. There is no truer indication of it
than this belief. The day is rapidly
approaching, and this conference
helped its coming, when men shall
learn that they cannot afford to speak
ill of their brothers, who are Just as
honest and sincere and self-sacrificing,
as they are, even though they
may not be able to accept their pet
