Transcript Introductory When the phrase Party press is used by the Socialist Labor Party it has a deep and far-reaching connotation. It does not merely imply a paper or papers endorsing and advocating the principles of the Party ; it means a Party-owned press, which is an integral part of the Party itself and without which the Party is scarcely conceivable. It is the Party's voice and without it the Party would be mute—or, well, that is part of the story. The PEOPLE and the Socialist Labor Party are inseparable. The history of the paper shows how truly it is flesh and bone of the Party's flesh and bone. The PEOPLE was started at tha time when the "ic" was dropped out of the name of the organization and corresponding changes took place which made it truly a political party. But the European idea of a big "readable" paper with heaps of "family matter" in it still clung to it. It was inconceivable then that a purely agitational paper could exist and be of interest. But about a year later De Leon was made Editor of the PEOPLE and, truly a pioneer, he conceived and dared a new venture—a paper that should truly be the voice of working class interests and of the S. L. P. in particular. The PEOPLE would be a teacher —for diversion the worker could go where he wished, for diversion concerned not his interest. The notes from the PEOPLE rang out clear and strong from the first. And the important thing was that it was the Party's voice—not merely De Leon's not New York's either. But the PEOPLE in the beginning was not issued by the Party itself. It was issued by the Socialist Publishing Association, which also printed the Volkszeitung. The idea of the Party ownership of the press is in itself a chapter that demonstrates how inseparable are the S. L. P. and the PEOPLE. The Party ownership of its press has been raised by the S. L. P. to the dignity of a principle. When, in the late nineties, the Kangaroo split was throwing its shadow ahead, naturally the first attack was on the press and the Editor of the PEOPLE who was propounding and defending the new Socialist Trade and Labor Alliance union policy of the Party. The Party instantly realized that neither the publishing of the paper nor the selection of its editor could safely be left to a more or less irresponsible association. The motion was put to a general vote that the Party take
