parties seem to be having a great Bme this year be tween the two wings of the parties The Socialists Whowere supposed to represent the ultra Ideas of govern ment ownership etc face the same sort of contest in the other parties Socialists from all over the United States who are gathering in Indianapolis todayfor the national convention of their party to be formally opened on Sunday are con fronted by a problem that is as old as human society It is the ques tion of the eternal warfare between the radical and the conservative a of cleavage that probably was first drawn in the first gens long before the dawn of his tory and has continued among all peoples and nations and parties and religions to the present day The development of constitutional gov ernment has resulted always in the formation of two great groups the radical and the conservative the left and right the Democrat and the Republican the Liberal and the Unionist When existing political parties fail to reflect this eternal alignment of a powerful third party inevitably arises to force a reorganization and a return to first phenomenon now to be witnesed ia the United States When Socialism was not repsecta indeed it was looked upon almost as criminal in its tend Socialists hung togeth er that they might not hang separ ately That stage of misunderstand ing of motives has passed and now the Socialists themselves in the United States as elsewhere are forced to face the ageold division between radical and conservative elements In France and Italy and to a lesser extent among the more practical Germans Socialists are al ready at war with each other Whether the problem has become suflciently acute in the United States as to result in a division dur ing the convention to be opened to morrow is of course problematical Recent events such as the Lawrence strike and the agitation at the In dustrial Workers of the World lead to a belief that the separation of the sheep and the goats the politi cal Socialists and the Is at hand In the past American Socialism so far as its spirit is reflected in the platforms adopted by national con ventions has been of the political action variety While advocating and preaching the full Socialist pro gram of cooperative ownership of all the means of production and dis tribution the politicalaction Social not scornimmedite re forms such as government employ for those out of work collect ive owiwrship of railroads tele graphs steamship lines con servation reclamation labor legis lation such asshorter workdays in lieritance andincome taxes woman suffrage and many other matters not distinctively Socialistic The disciple of Syndicalism on the other hand spurns all compromise de clares that the class struggle is a state of warfare and if he doea not defend at least does not condemn any act that will produce results Direct action is the sogan the Syndicalist who throws out as use less the educational evolutionary political action of the kid glove Socialist The fellow who eats pie with a knife is in happy circumstances in comparison with the one who eats beans with his knife in the state of Tenneaee One H H Williams made derisive remarks concerning the sword swallowing bean atunt iout on by Victor Williams and the latter became so incensed that he fatally perforated the former with lead First it was Massachusetts then Maryland and now
