No argument is needed to convince Uie 
intelligent observer of passing events of 
the growing need of a lalx r press that 
has no entangling alli-nces with any of 
the agencies which have undertaken the 
task of emasculating the lalior unions or 


The 11 

of the daily press is quick 
to notice the manner in which the news 
agencies of the world are continuously 
and forever giving Lalior the worst of it 
in every conceivable manner. The Asso- 
ciated Press, the chief news-gathering 
agency in America, is made up of one or 
more daily papers in the various cities of 
the country, and the stuff put upon the 
wires ami known as the Associated l'ress 
dispatches is usually gleaned from the 
matter prepared for these local papers. 
Very often a proof of the matter set up 
for the dsily papers is supplied the As- 
sociated Press correspondent, and often, 
■ what- 

ever, the matter is 
the country and appears in all papers re- 
ceiving the press report as Associated 
Press dispatches. 

The foregoing recital is made for the 
purpose of showing that, while the Asso- 
cntc.l Press if damned for false stories, 
especially in nearly all cases where there 
is a strike or other controversy tietwcen 
Capital and Labor, in reality the Mmm 
rests upon the daily papers, whose re- 
porters, acting under instructions, have 
juggled lhe f " cU *° H » to milke il n PV eaT 
that Labor is wrong and that the em- 
j,i ..„,. , rr . rx-rseou*-"' «-ont». To bf 
sure, the daily paper merely serves its 
master in this. It looks to the "business 
interests," the banks, corporations, 
iiniuul.icUircrs, and large emphc ers of 
labor generally for its support. And, 

dreamed of. To establish and make se- 
cure such a Labor press is the duty of the 
hour. You must have your own medium 
t« give utterance to your demands, crys- 
talize the sentiment that may 1* created 
in your favor, and finally do battle for

Thk Workkr is the only paper within 
several hundred miles of Louisville that 
is organized and established on lilt right 
basis. It is the only one that is demo- 
cratically 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 are intended. It is the only genu 
ine Labor paper. 

Everyone who reads the Louisville 
daily papers will recall that with. n thi 
past oouple of yesrs they vied with each 
other in their efforts to get up a union 
lalnir department. Regularly each week 
a column or two was devoted to the news 
of the unions. Where are these depart- 
ments now* When they have not en- 
tirely disappeared they have dwindled to 
virtually nothing. This is a manifesta- 
tion of the studietl purpose of the Km- 
pl.ocis' Association and all its friends to 
give no recognition to organized lalsir 
except to oppose ami l elittle this great 
movement. A representative of one of 
the daily papers, in a semi-confidential 
manner, gave the writer the tip several 
months ago that from that time 011 there

interest of the element to which it bl 
longs, the daily paper uses all its powers 

ers to a victory that means no improve- 
ment in the condition of the workers. 

The facta above stated arc so patent, 
aud are being more and more recognized 
by wage-earners, as the days come and 
go, that we deem an extended mention 
thereof to lie superficial were it not for 
the moral the story contains. 
, Und-r 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 liccause 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, whose eco- 
nomic interests are opposed to those of 
the workers ? No ! There is a better so- 
lution of the problem. The thing to do 
is to build up a L*noR press— owned by 
Labor and controlled by Lalior. Through 
your own press, fellow-workers, you may 
become powerful, but not otherwise. 
With a medium that is under your owner- 
ship and control your orj animation may 
become a power not now more than

In this connection a letter from a 
Parry agency in San Francisco, which 
has N'en going the rounds of the labor 
press, is strikingly full of interest. As 
1111 exchange remarks, it is full of "cold- 
Maodod 'business.' " The chief ocetipii 
tion of tlieae agencies establ ished under 
the fostering care of the Parry crowd is 
to furnish the new class of Pinkerton 
thugs, much worse than the old kind, 
to do lhe duty work of the high-toned

Again, let the unions understand that 
they may expect nothing of value from 
then natural enemies— and in the final 
anal ysis the whole cpjestion is sifted down 
to and rests upon and is controlled by 
the oeOOWk interests of the employing

Chief among thorn she ban been instru-

weekly labor paper, and the lni nu t :, n

It is not always ginnl diplomacy on

I the Audit!

■ Intel 


of ten, bring warning into the enemy's 

My old friend "Ed" Oronk was 
forced to admit that he was " somewhat 
prejudiced" in the Federated Trades 
Council and Louisville Federation of 
Labor combat. " An hoLost cenfessien 
is good for the soul" and business 
" makes strange bed fellows." 

My left hand bower, "Johnny" 
Stack, is one of the good uatured fel- 
lows that takes " reuolntiou defeat" 
with a light heart and a smiling face; 
in fact, the " fat boy" can't do other- 
wise, his facial expression is always the 

audit th 

otliee. He will leave for Chicago on 
W, din -dev. 

Mr. Nat Loonborger, a prominent 
member of No. M, has 'cturnetl liome 
after an extended visit to relsHv.e and 
friends in 
World's Knir. 

Where Will He Land Next? 

National officers of the Bill I ' ,„ 
I'nion have given 1'eoti! thirty days to 
get out of the.r Louisville local-tho 

slulelle Ills III I'e.d/ s ft* 1. 1\ |ill|KT to 

the eontnirv wil hstiuiding. 

By-the woy, it turns out that Feetz is 
the man that has l«-cn going among the 
business 1110:1 of the city and represent- 
ing that entire harmony pivvailn ill the 
Louisville lalxir movement, that there 
is but one central body. It is a painful 
fact that there is not a word of truth in 
such allegations There can bo no har- 
mony until UNION men take hold of 
the movement and put the fakirs, liko 
Pectz and his gang, out of it. 


• husii 

The Woggle Bug at No. 10's last Sun- 
day's meeting said most emphatically 
that the Federated Trades Counoil is a 
lively, healthy be(e)ing, which carries a 

inunity against giving Pectz any busi- 
ness for the account of the    ino Vil- 
li Y Wohkkh. We most seriously ob- 
j.-ot to hnviug the g HHi name of the 
Wokkkk prostituted in thin manner. 
And PiH'tz is warned also »hat he must 
not leave tho inference with bimiiieas 
men that business secured from them is 
intended for the Wokkkk. By such 
course he lays himself liable to prosecu- 
tion, and if iMirsistfld in ho may expect 
to have the law upon him.
