This activity of the unions is not only permissible, but also indispensable as long as the present system exists. Moreover, this activity must be generalized through the establishment and consolidation of economic organizations (Gewerkschaften) in all countries.

(Underscoring ours.) —Prom a Resolution prepared by Karl Marx and adopted at the Congress of the International Workingmen's Association at Geneva, 1866. AFTER having ascertained the seat of proletarian power in the organized class-consciousness at the point of production, and also after having defined the functions of the political and economic organizations of the proletariat in the so- called every-day struggle—a struggle which we only conceive as part of the great historical class conflict—we believe it is opportune to place an essay, dealing with the purely organic phase of Industrial Unionism, before the readers. How does the Socialist Industrial Union organize the workers; and in what manner does this form of organization differ from that of the Craft Unions and so-called bastard types of Industrial Unions? These questions will now instinctively crop up, and
