FLANDERS BATTLE Berlin, Aug. 3, via London.-Tho special dispatches from tho front in tho Berlin newspapers agree in describing tho battle In Flanders as a struggle for the submarine base in Belgium, as well as in characterizing it as the most stupendous combat of the war. The British advance in the Wyts-chaete sector on June 7, is commented upon by tho correspondents as part of the strategic scheme to gain the TJ-boat bases, the June attack being calculated to give the entente forces freedom of movement and permit them to proceed from t(je Ypres battle ground in a northeasterly direction and strike at Zeebruggee from the : rear. j "The great, brutal force of the ini-I tial blow has been parried," writes the ! Tageblatt's correspondent regarding ' the Flanders battle. "We survived the j gruesome tension occasioned by the , uncanny artillery Are, and we arc able again to hold our heads high as tl.a battle of living men is resumed. Tho struggle has now reached the phase ot human effort aftor unseen mechanical death has been knocking at the door day and night tor weeks. The German lighting spirit was fully awakened and heroes flung themselves from the islands of defenso in the reconquered district against the advancing masses and seriously weakened the flanks of the oncoming troops. Millions of shells have been spont and now comes the to�t of strength and nerves. "The mainspring which impelled the German fighting man on was the strong realisation that he was here called upon to defend the" German U-boat-to serve the mightiest, most promising weapon of his country and bar the path to it with his lite. The German troops counter-attacked in frightful bayonet and hand grenade combats. It was the mightiest -eoun-ter-thi'ust, following the mightiest impact, which tho world has ever seen. "Nightfall witnessed the happy poliievsmont. The foe had won German trenches, had gained control o.'

The capitalist class took them because it Iwb the power to control the muscle and brain of the working Industry. Organized, we, the working ciass, will have tho power. With that power we will tako bnek that which has been stolen from us. We will demand more and more wages from our employers: We will demand shorter and- shorter hours. If we gain these demand's' .wo are diminishing the profits ot the boss. We are talcing away his power. Wo are gaining that power for ourselves. All tho time wo become more disciplined. We become self-reliant. We realize" that without our labor power no wealth can he produced. We fold our arms, tho mills close, industry Is at a standstill. We then make our proposition to our .former masters. "It is this: "Wo, the workers, have labored long enough to support id-1 lers. From now on'he who does not j toil, neither shall he eat." (From pago j 14, Hevolutlonary I. W. W.) On page 24 of "The I. W. W.-Its Histroy, Structure and Methods" is the statement: "The futuro belongs to, the I. W. W. The day of tho skilled , worker is past." From pago 10 of the same publication was taken tho following statement: | "There is but ono bargain that the I. W. W. will make with tho employ, lng classes-complete 'surrender of all control of industries to organized workers." Other extracts from the same publication submitted to the defense council were: "The tactics used are determined by the power of organization to make good in their use. The question of right and wrong does not concern us. No terms made with an employer are final. All peace, so long as the wage system lasts, is but an armed truce," "No part of the organization is allowed to enter into time contracts with the employers." . "The I. W. W. maintains that nothing will be conceded by the employers except that we iiavo power to take and hold by tho strength of our organisation. Therefore, we. seek no agreements with the employer. Fail-' ing to force concessions from the employers by strikes, work will be resumed and sabotage used to force the employers to cedo the demands of the workers. "We aro looking forward to the time when the organized proletariat will meet the union, the world over and docide how lung they will 'work and how- much otjthe wealth - they produce they will give to the boss."
