man of the social democratic party in Mil
waukee Issued a statemetit giving an out
line of principles m"t win guide mi social
democratic administration during the next
two years, beginning with tomorrow, when
the Inaugural ceremonies will take place.
"The socialist party of America Is the
American expression of the International
movement of modern wage workers for bet
ter fnod, better houses, sufficient, sleep,
mora leisure, more education and mote cul
ture," says the statement. . To scuro
economies as well, as political liberty will
be one of the aims of the social demoiacy.

among other things is advocated, but until
this Is reached the best possible servlcs
will be expected from these utilities com
petition is objected to on the ground that
the more competition means more cor
ruption. In bref the social democracy stands for
every radical change that will bring means
of production into tho hands of the people.
. . . Text cf statement.
Mr. Berger'a statement In full is as fol
A detailed review of what the social
democratic administration of Milwaukee in
tends to accomplish during the next two
years will be contained In the mayor's in
augural message. I wish only to state the
general principles upon which this party
stands and upin which we were elected on
April 5. I,' of course, will not repeat the
In the first p'ace, the social democratic
party of Milwaukee Is an integral part of
the social party of America. In Wisconsin
we are officially named "the social demo
cratic party," which Is the customary In
. Tho socialist party of America Is the
American expression of the International
movement ot modern wage workers for
better food, better houses, sufficient sleep,
more leisure.- more education sud mure cul
ture. The founders of the republic declared for
political freedom. But we call attention to
the fact that since the birth of this nation
a revolution in Industry has taken place.
Formerly hand labor and individual effort
produced the necessities of mankind, lo
day machine labor and social or associated
labor are the means of producing those
necessities. And while in that former time
it was the Imperative duty of tho govern
ment to protect the Individual In possession
of the property he had-produced, so today
It is equally the fluty of the fiovernment
to protect associated labor, that Is to say,
the whole body of working people. In the
possession of tho products of their toll
Middle Class Disappearing.
The present system of social production
by individual ownership has produced two
classes tne propertyies class and tno cap
italist class. The middle clues: once tne
buck bone of this great nation, is fast dis
appearing in the mill of competition, and
the issue Is now between the first two
classes. All attempts to obscure this Issue
or to delay the settlement are futile, fur
all other issues will be speedily absorbed
by -it. Thus It develops that the battle
for human rights has become a battle to'
determine which form of government we
shall have in the future plutocracy Or
Political liberty alone has become Inade
auatc we i.-.ust have both political and
economto liberty. To Feeiire this Is the aim
of the social democracy.
In city atialis -u ond for the public
ownership of municipal utilities. .We are
weir&ware, however, mat Milwaukee does
not enjoy self-goremment, and that, as a
rulevno steps ean. be taken in mat airec
tlon without an appeal tQ the state legis
lature at Madison. - -
In municipal- attaira. the. tociaL democracy
stands also for radical cliange that will
bring means f produotton Into the homes
of the people. It believes In self-government
for the city, tho initiative, the refer
endum and the right of recall, in a just
and equitable taxation, in efficient sani
tary inspection of workshops and houses,
and In the public control of the food sup
ply in the interests of the public health
and in the highest, development of a rea
sonable public service. At the proper time
the social democracy will Initiate thla and
MeetluBT Present Conditions.
We call attention to the fact that the
measures we urge are lu no way a complete
n.iM, for existing evils, nor are taey neces
sarily socialistic measures. They are to be
viewed rather as needed palliatives. Under
no circumstances should the working peo
ple rest content with municipal imtove
ments. which are merely temporary in their
nature and must be entirely inadequate.
They should move onward to the conquest
of all public, powers, to an entire chunge
of the present system for one which shall
secure to the people collectively, the means
of production and distribution.
The main spring of corruption in muni
cipal afaflrs is found in the fact that a
few - alderman or officials have in their
power to give away or sell franchises to
officials to secure a share in the millions
The temptation thus offered our public
officials to secure u shade in the millions
thus given away is too reat for the aver
age man to withstand. If the city should
operate its public utilities, the motive and
the opportunity for bribery would be gone,
even if minor evils and breaches of trust
mliiht continue, owing to the corrupting
influence of the capitalistic system which
makes money-getting the sole aim of life.
The social wlemooracy, therefore, objects to
more competition in public utilities; more
competition means more corruption.
We stand for the public ownership of pub
lic utilities; but until w reach this, we will
enforce the utmost extension and possible
service from these utilities, as far as the
present laws, will permit.
Contract System ' Dangerous.
We look upon the contract system also
as a danger. It constantly Induces con
tractors to bribe city officials on the one
hand and to exploit their workmen on . the
other. Moreover, it is always in the inter
est of the city that citizens earn decent
wages; tnereiore, insieaa or contractors,
tha labor unions ought to he encouraged.
The city should tad pledged, so far as
the charter permit, to employ only union
labor, and at eight hours a day, and should
require tne same of all contractors doing
The money made out of the city by con
tractors will better go toward the relief
of the unemployed: first by the improve
ment of the streets; second by the estab
lishment of public coal and wqor! vards and
a public Ice house. In this climate Ice Is

ss necesssrv In summer as rosl Is In the
winter. These necesiMes should be sold
st ccst. The city could easily harvest an
abundance nf Ice during the winter months,
thus employing many cltlsens who would
otherwise have to receive public aid. We
realise that giving work to the unemployed
can solve no Industrial problems, but It I
the least that can be done as a humane
dutv towsrd thos in distress.
Free education Is essential to a hleh
civilisation. Free bonk are as much a
part of free edurntlon a f-ee teachers and
trt sr-bool houwes. The social democracy
demand thnt books end scImhI utensils
be furnished free to all pupils attending
the ru,,,,c schools. '
Taxation of Corporations.
This naturally leads us to the question
of taxes. If corporations bore their share
of taxes figured even at the present val
uation the taxes or all clttsens could be
reduced 20 per cent, and there would still
be enough money left in the city treasury
which could be used for public improve
ments of all kinds. "
public health renulres - more attention to
factories and work shops, better plumbing,
mure public baths and a system of public
street closets, such as Is found In Euro
I'liblio health also, demands an extMision
of the free medical servlo. At the present
time many a disease and even epidemics
get their origin from the fact that poor
people shrinK rrem consulting a -pnyaican
because ot the expense, until it Is too late.
While we realise that pauperism ano
prostitution are the legitimate outgrowth
of the present Ht"ni, which submerge
the lower stratum of the. proletariat, it is
well known that certain wealthy citizens
derive profit from degradation through the
rent of old rookeries which are a menace
both to public morula and the public
health. We will see to it that all slum
property be condemned and that steps
shall bo taken to protect our boys ana
The city ouglit to afford the protection or
the law to such of its cltlxena as are un
eole to afford it themselves. At preetit
the poor know of Uio law only when they
feel Its crushing effect. A poor .person
with a Just cause has hd stundlng In the
courts unless some lawyer Is promised a
Ma- share of the proweds of the case; if
there are no proceeds the poor person has
no means of defense at all.
Th Is Is a ireneral outline of the principles
that will guide the social democratic ad
ministration. ' - . .
As to the working details, we shall have
to refer to our platform and the message
of our mayor, Emll 8eldel.
We are hampered bv an obsolete charter
and laws made in favor of the capitalist
cIkss - and th- capitalist ' class, only, - but
we sen in promise the best administration
this city has ever had, and as far as
human effort can secure it, we will make
good our promise.
