Transcript of the Volkszeitung, who, at the meeting, "explained his position," repudiate a single anti-Party utterance of his supporters; and when the further circumstances are taken into account that the Volkszeitung has been suppressing information damaging to Haverhillism; that it has editorially disclaimed knowledge of the information necessary to refute the absurd excuses given by the Haverhillites for their Armory record; that it is, editorially, making convulsive efforts to suppress the fact that it was the S. T. and L. A. that conducted the Allegheny strike, and that, but for the existence of the S. T. and L. A., the proletarian up- flaring in this case would have been captured and led into the ground by the pure and simple fakers, and would have been lost to the movement as usual; that (very much like the Haverhillites, who also throw in, somewhere in a corner of their taxation stuff, phrases about the abolition of the wage system and the necessity of voting only for their party) the Volkszeitung is publishing, editorially, genuine "reform" small- traders' sentiments on taxation, all in opposition, not only to a healthy, aggressive Socialist movement, but in direct opposition to the Party's officially expressed attitude as set forth in its municipal program — when all this is taken into account, the fact stands indisputable that THE VOLKSZEITUNG' PUBLISHING ASSOCIATION HAS LOST CASTE, AND IS NOW DRIFTING INTO OPEN HOSTILITY TO THE PARTY. Well and wittily did a comrade strike off the situation on that evening of March 23. The yearly election for the editor of the Volkszeit ung coming up in the- order of business after the above votes, the comrade nominated JUSTUS SCHWAB as the most appropriate man for the office, under the circumstances. We imagine we hear at this stage the cry of surprise: "What, Justus Schwab, that lager-beer Anarchist, that notorious enemy of the Party, that clown of the labor movement, is HE too a member of the Volkszeitung Publishing Association?" Yes, and not only he but a number of others of more or less equal kidney. Among the members, for instance, is Ernest Bohm, who formerly rarely attended the meetings, but now, since he left the Party to escape expulsion for publishing advertisements of capitalist parties in the Souvenir of the late lamented Central Labor Federation, has an interest in seeking to do the Party all the mischief he can, and, together with his supporters in guilt, is always on deck; Philip Bauer and Sohr, both of whom, in and out of season, have nothing but slander for the Party, and oppose it at all turns, and the latter of whom was told in his own union by a German fellow member that, in Germany, he would be looked upon as a police agent; a Dr. Hoffman, "Gold-bug Anarchist"; one Filley, all around crazy Anarchist—all non-members of the Party, and who knows how many more. And this brings us to the lessons to be learned. The Volkszeitung Publishing Association was established by the Party as a publishing committee of the Partj7, without which it cannot live; indeed, its constitution provides that none but members of the Party are qualified for membership. But the constitution goes no further. 15
