things; jealousy of individuals who
dare have opinions of their own. Dif
ferences of opinion on matters wholly
apart from trades unionism are made
the basis of bitter attacks, b&ckcapping
and snarling criticism. And men who
boast of being "square men" are the
men who are quickest to try and injure
brother unionists who happen to differ
from them on some personal matters.

A 'BIT PERSONAL.
The Wageworkerr begsl pardon 'for
obtruding a little personal matter right
here, but it can not forbear expressing
its pleasure at having accumulated a
few enemies. It is really very proud
of the enemies it has made although
not quite so proud of them as of the
staunch friends it has made. Buit the
mere fact that it has made enemies
is a sign of progress, a sign that it
is really amounting to something. It
rejoices in the enmity of those narrow
souled members of unions who, having
good jobs, don 't care whether the other
fellow has anything or not. It rejoices
in the enmity of those frantic shouten-s
for "personal liberty" who would deny
every man but themselves the right to
express an 'honest opinion if thait opin
ion did not square with their own. It
rejoices in the enmity of those to whom
truth is unknown and wiho have no
regard for fairness or squareness. It
is toeing .boycotted by men who prate
loudly of free speech and free press,
and who, - while profiting from those
very things would suppress a free press
because ithey can not control its utter
ances. Or te 0P'?!i9n? of the editors
thereof, .., .
A& its list of loving enemies increases
The Wageworker 's list of loyal' friends
increases and we rejoice in the free
advertising those loving enemies are
giving, for, coming from that source,
every knock is a boost.
As in the beginning, so in closing.
The Wageworker craves pardon for ob
truding this personal note.
AN EXAMPLE OF UNIONISM.
. When Ernest Sndel, socialist, was
elected mayor of Milwaukee the capi
talistic class thought to make an ex
ample of that city. "We will," said
the capitalists, "Tefuse" to invest in
Milwaukee city bonds, and as Mil
waukee is a borrower at the present
time, we will make it so uncomfortable
for that city that no other city will
make the error of electing a socialist
to the mayoralty."
So saying the capitalists sat back
in their easy chairs and thought how
beautifully they wre going to put the
Bcrews to. Milwaukee.
But they didn't reckon with the
host. True that Milwaukee is a bor
rower of money. But when the capi
talists sought to punish Milwaukee for
having elected an enemy of the capital
istic system they forgot that there
were a lot of trades unionists who
had some money. The Bakers and Con
fectioners' International Union has
something like a quainter of a million
dollars in its strongbox. "We'll loan
Soidel's . city our .money," said .the
members of that big union. The
Brewery Workers ' Union lias something
like a half million dollars in its treas
ury. "We'll loan Seidel's city our
money," said that big union. Other
unions said the same thing, and the
first thing irhe capitalists knew they
were losing a chance .to make profitable
investments in Milwaukee bonds. Then
they woke up.
The unions will not be called upon
to sell their securities for the purpose
of .helping the socialists administration
of Milwaukee out of a financial hole,
ifor the capitalists are now not only
willing, but eager, to loan money on
In an Ohio city recently the manager
of a big corporation, who was also
president of a big bank, became em
broiled with 'his employes. They asked
for recognition of their union and an
increase in wage. The haughty em
ployer would not listen to them, but
on the comtrary imported "scabs" and
then sought the protection of .the
miliitia. The interests of the corpora
tion and the bank were closely allied,
tw trades unionists quietly began with
drawing their money from the bank.
As a result the manager of the cor
1 poration had to make terms in order
to save his bank.. Doubtless he 'has
revised his estimate of the cohesive
power of trades unionists. '
These incidents are mentioned merely
to ehow what organized labor can do
when it lays aside its petty jealousies
and prejudices and works as a unit
in the interests of the whole body of
labor. The trouble is that organized
labor does this thing too seldom. The
whole system is permeated with jeal
ousy jealousy of men who try to do
SPEAKING OF CANDIDATES.
The candidate for the legislature,
be he republican, democrat, socialist or
prohibitionist, who will not agree to
vote .for the senatorial candidate re
ceiving the highest unmber of votes
at the November election, is not fit
to be trusted. The man who will not
trust the people should not be trusted
by the people. J. R. C. Miller is one
of these. He knows better than the
people what the people want and should
have. Miller is a republican. P. F.
Zimmer, Allen McWilliams, Jerome
Shamp and W. J. Blystone, all repub
lican candidates for legislative nomina
tion, have refused to abide by the
choice of the people on the matter
of the senatorship. H. J. Lenhbff and
C. E. Groves, democrats, have refused
to give assurance that they will vote
for the people's choice for senator.
Not one of these men is entitled to
th support or the vote of any trades
unionist who 'believe in the initiative
and referendum, or who believes in
the popular election of United States

John E. Miller, democrat, who was
a member of the senate during the 1909
session, is now a candidate for the
house. Mr. Miller stood for the right
two years ago. He voted for the two
or three bills that organized labor stood
for. He "opposed several measurer that
were calculated to injure the cause of
labor. He has signed "Statement No.
I," and he is deserving of the support
of the union men who make partisan
