Transcript The Party Press (Editorial by Daniel De Leon in the Daily People, September 20, 1903.) No better time than campaign time to reach the masses. Thanks to the inherent weakness of the capitalist class, election time is that when the capitalist class plows the ground deep. It is driven to it in order that it may sow the poisonous seed of its own poisonous plant. But the very furrows opened for such evil purposes are, despite the capitalist plowman, receptive of better seed. The sociologiclaw subdivides the sociologic work. It is for the usurping and condemned class to plow the field; it is for the uprising and avenging class to sow the seed. Now then, at no season is the field plowed deeper and wider than at the election season; consequently, at no season is the duty more incumbent upon the Socialist sower to do his part in the distribution of labor— the sowing of the seed for the oak of the Socialist Republic, under whose spreading boughs no slave shall bend, and the laborer shall, indeed, "be worthy of his hire." The Party press is the vehicle of such seed. Owned and controlled by the Party membership, the Party press expresses the collective view of the body. No impure and outside influences can affect it. The seed it scatters is sound and healthy. About three years ago, the press of this land and others bubbled over with "Chinese atrocities." Today it is well known that' these "atroci ties" were manufactured in the offices of certain railroad interests, and that the "atrocities" were but intended to furnish a pretext for a war that was to pour into the hands of capitalists money soaked in the blood of human beings. Just now similar "atrocities" are being retailed as perpetrated on the Macedonians—the identical Macedonians who but yesterday were described as the "incurable brigands who kidnaped Miss Stone." And so on with regard to foreign news. It is similar with regard to internal concerns, economics and politics. Outside of the press of the Socialist Labor Party, there is none that does not obey more or less the impulse of interests baneful to the working class. It cannot be otherwise. None of those papers but is private property. They are either owned by one individual or by corporations. Without exception they are "on the make." However well the individual may mean, the Cause of the masses is not safe in one man's hands; and as to corporations, their very make-up places their interests at war with those of the people. Hence, only the press of the S. L. P. is seen in the land to uphold unflinchingly and unshakably the principles of the working class to wage unsparing war upon the many-shaded foes of labor, and to furnish the working class 'with the healthy information that it needs.
