Transcript manner born, was being throbbed into existence by the throbs of the nation itself. That movement went into the existing S. L. P., and transformed it. The very next year it unfurled its banner in the political field and held it. The Volkszeitung element was defeated. They valiantly sought to accommodate themselves to the inevitable, but could not; bankruptcy began to stare the Volkszeitung in the face; every year that passed made their element's position more unbearable: In front, the accelerated development of capital rendered the labor faker and the taxpaying small trader more and more desperate, while the magnificent progress of the Party, with its increasing revolutionary ardor, was burning them in the rear. For some time the foul interests of ten years ago had been plotting to ease their straits; their maneuvers to nag the Party's officers into blunders suffered shipwreck one after the other, and were turned upon them; then, all else proving unavailable, they staked their all upon a headlong coup that should strangle the Party —and failed ignominiously. Self- pilloried before the membership of the whole country as raw-boned vio lators of the Party constitution; beaten back, in the battle of the 10th instant, from the Party's premises that they now again sought to capture by surprise and violence—all as narrated in last week's issue; and subsequently outgeneraled in their, attempts to starve the Party and bar it from the post office, they are today July, '99, a physically and morally shattered crew.

The S. L. P. has become a Party, indeed; it has leaped the boundaries of the city and state; it has spread out north, south and west, and now extends from ocean to ocean, honored, respected, feared, over 80,- 000 strong. In 1899, the S. L. P. is no longer the concern that can be bagged by the canaille of capitalist society. Salutatory (Editorial by Daniel De Leon in the Daily People, July 1, 1900.) Few modern enterprises, if any, carry as distinctly as does the newspaper enterprise that mask that is characteristic of the present stage of social development—a mark that, to those who can see, denotes that an old system has reached its end, and a new must be stepping upon its heels, and must speedily supplant it. The past long dominates the mind of the present. Despite the striking character of modern industrial enterprises, the mind is still dominated by their character of old, when, in 27
