Hamilton. Can., Trades and Labor Council lias decided to build a labor temple. Regina, Sask., city council will ask the provincial legislature for an am- endment to the City Act which will give married women the franchise. Organized labor at Chicago, 111., will appeal to the churches to help secure shorter working hours for women. "By 1912 the issue in the United States will be between Socialism on one hand and Capitalism on the other. This fight between the privileged few and the disinherited many holds with- in its womb the greatest revolution that has ever yet convulsed, civilized Hanna. A revised governmental council has been jigged up in India by the ex'ecu- itive of Britain's commercial interests. And, as in Russia, safeguard is pro- vided in a qualification, which em- powers the government to declare in- eligible persons whose election is deemed unwise. The Viceroy's coun- j'cil in future will have 370 members instead of 12C. of whom 135 will be elected as 30 heretofore. The new council will assemble in January. The wage-earners of Haverbill, Mass., have elected Charles H. Mor- ril, Socialist, to the Massachusetts legislature. That the presence ot militiamen, called out by the corporate interests at times when working men are re- belling against conditions which they refuse to tolerate, only tends to stir up trouble and compel clashes in which the employers do not antici- {pate, is amply borne out this week I in the award of the Colorado audit- board.

As a matter of self preservation the working class will sooner or later be compelled to secure possession of the machinery of government for the purpose of car- ing for its own interests. Under the rule of property interests there is more precaution taken to pro- tect a Chinese laundry than a human life. Employers are strong on fire- fighting appliances but weak on hos- pital ambulances. Nature created community: private property is the off-spring of usurpa- Ambrose.

It is true today as it was ten years ago. that the wage worker needs the knowledge of a few elemental, prin- ciples of political economy and so- ciology, more than he does bread, to make the most of given conditions in I his daily struggle with the capitalist class. The great mass have neither home nor country, yet the world is theirs by right, and soon will be theirs in fact, when they rise in their man- hood's might and take it, hold it. and run it. Only then will they know the meaning of the word "home."
