Transcript test. Comrade Hugo Vogt offered the following resolution: Whereas, The "Socialistic Cooperative Publishing Association" was established by the Socialist Labor ■ Party for no other purpose than to gain supporters for the Party through press publication; and that, in accord with this purpose, it is expressly prescribed by the constitution of the Association that the publications which it issues shall be edited in accord wtih the principles and the tactics of the S.L.P.; Whereas, The tactics of the Party on the subject of the trade union movement have been unequivocally defined in the following resolution of the National Party Convention, held in New York in 1896: "Whereas, Both the A. F. of L. and the K. of L., or what is left of them, have fallen hopelessly into the hands of dishonest and ignorant leaders; "Whereas, These bodies have taken shape as the buffers for capitalism, against whom every intelligent effort of the working class for emancipation has hitherto gone to pieces; "Whereas, The policy of 'propitiating' the leaders of these organizations has been tried long enough by the progressive movement, and is to a great extent responsible for the power which these leaders have wielded in the protection of capitalism, and the selling out of the workers; "Whereas, No organization of labor can accomplish anything for the workers that does not proceed from the principle that an irrepressible conflict rages between the capitalist and the working class—a conflict 13 that can be settled only by the total overthrow of the former and the establishment of the Socialist Commonwealth; and "Whereas, This conflict is essentially a political one, needing the combined political and economic efforts of the working class; therefore, be it "Resolved, That we hail with unqualified joy the formation of the Socialist Trade and Labor Alliance as a giant stride toward throwing off the yoke of wage slavery and of the robber class of capitalists: We call upon the Socialists of the land to carry the revolutionary spirit of the S.T. and L. A. into all the organizations of the workers, and thus consolidate and concentrate the proletariat of America in one irresistible classconscious army, equipped both with the shield of the economic organization and the sword of the Socialist Labor Party ballot." Whereas, This resolution was adopted, not by the National Convention only, but also by an overwhelming referendum vote (more than 10 to 1) of the Party membership; and that the same has been endorsed in almost all the State Conventions of the S. L. P., held since 1896; and that the tactics therein defined have, more particularly with regard to the local field of activity of the N. Y. Volkszeitung, been confirmed in three successive general votes of the membership of this locality; therefore be it Resolved, That it is the duty of the Board of Directors to see to it that the editor of the Volkszeitung adhere to the attitude of the Party upon this tactical question, that is held by the Party to be one of the
