In contention was whether the city of South

had absolutely defined the limits of the

Eugene V. Debs, in Address at Wash
ington Hall, Says He Feels Sure
of Ultimate Kesult
Eugene V. Debs, perennial presidential
candidate on the socialist ticket, spoke
last evening at Washington hall . at a
meeting, arranged under the auspices of
the socialists of Omaha, as a protest
agalnBt the conviction of Fred W. War
ren, editor of the Appeal to Reason.
"Feudalism was evolved for a purpose
and lived until it had fulfilled its historic
mission and then the present capitalist
class was evolved," said Mr. Debs. "Their
work is now over and socialism will come
as sure as the sun rises on the morrow.
If It Is brought about by ' violence and
bloodshed It will be In spite of the so
cialist party and not because of It. '
"Any system In which a single human
being Is denied an opportunity to earn a
living is a despotism as far as that in
dividual Is concerned. No people is great
unless master of the things which' control
means of making a living and such Is
not now the case In this country.
"There are now in this country 22,000,000
people who earn their livelihood by labor,
and of these 5,000,000 are women and 2,000,-
000 are children. These may only work on
condition they sell their labor to the capi
talists who own the means. If there is a
man in this country not properly fed and
clothed It Is no fault of God Almighty, but
is due to the outgrowth ot the system
under which we live. There' will be no
brotherhood of man as long as you arid
I have to fight for our existence.
"The great majority always blocks
progress because It Is always wrong. His
tory proves that In all great movements
and revolutions which have resulted In
good for mankind, it has been the minority
which was right. The ruling class has
always kept the masses In darkness."
