Transcript zeitung element.) Did you hear those hisses? They prove my case. THESE PEOPLE hiss the Party; we applaud it. What is at the bottom of this marked difference? We cannot afford to be Socialists in one corner of our mouths, and fools in the other. We recognize the fact that material interests determine man's views. When we apply this scientific principle, every capitalist numskull politician charges us with being "personal." The charge of "personality" should never deter us. In this case, we need not look far for the material interests that determine the Views and shape of the element within the Party that arrays itself against us, the element that HAS faith in the Party. Hergat in the Association, the board of directors before our National Executive Committee were both outspoken. "The Volkszeitung," they declared, "cannot live without the support of the 'conservative' (read pure and simple) German unions." That is tip enough for anyone. Every pure and simpler with a job or expecting a job on a label committee or strike committee; every pure and simpler who fears for his sick and death benefit; all such are incommoded by the Alliance. Like veritable caricatures of the middle class, they clutch their "illusion of property," scared to death about losing it. They are willing to let the faker ride them and to stand by him, and they stand in dread of the Alliance, hence "feel quite sure that the S. L. P. cannot be the Party of the future." Again every one of them who has a little lager beer saloon, or a small store, or who, being a small trader, suffers, as the middle class generally, from the effects of taxation—all such think it execrable that the Party should not share the declarations of the Democratic party on.taxation to the effect that the working class is crushed by taxes, and hence their views that not the S. L. P., but some other party must come to do the work—hence also their hisses for the Party. It may be asked: Have the orators of that element also middle class, small property or pure and simple interests to guard? No. But on the same principle that the bourgeoisie attracts to itself as its orators a stripe of men of certain kindred intellectual interests, so likewise does the element that, for the reasons just given, "has no faith in the S. L. P.," attract to itself men whose interests run in somewhat similar grooves. For instance, it is no accident that among these spokesmen is a Schlueter—only a temporary sojourner in this land, awaiting the expiration of the sentence against him to return to his home in Germany; it is no accident that among these spokesmen is a Dr. Halpern (who acted at the last meeting as the claque for the traducers of the Party and its officers)—a gentleman whose jovial countenance we may -at any. time miss from our midst, his heart being in Russia, whither he pants to return as soon as it may be safe to do so; it is no accident that among these spokesmen is a Feigenbaum—a member who only the other day was seeking to perfect arrangements whereby he could fall on his feet back in Europe; it is no accident that among these spokesmen is a Nathan T. Stone—a young man who is pulling the wires for a job in McKinley's 21
