Transcript We have raised a monument more lasting than brass, Loftier than the regal stature of the Pyramids, A monument that neither the tooth of the rainfall, nor the blast of North Wind Is able to wear away, nor yet the numberless Sequence of years, nor the flight of Time. Party Press Answers to Questions by Daniel De Leon. Did you ever stop to look at and consider a cannon-ball? It is a thing worth contemplating. The birds of the fields may hop upon it and twitter their love songs; spiders may stretch their webs from one cannon ball to the other, and in peaceful quiet wait for the stray fly; kindergarten children may hold a May Day picnic there, and play hide-and-seek around a cannon ball pile—all the symptoms of peace may cluster around a cannon ball in idyllic form. And yet the cannon ball is intended for war, for turmoil, for destruction, for bloodshed, for death. How is that? That which the cannon ball is intended for comes not into operation until it is in motion; AT REST the cannon ball is ineffectual; it becomes effectual only when in MOTION. So With facts. Gathered in statistical collections; enumerated in archives; listed even in the columns of a paper, these facts would be no more effectual than cannon balls at rest; their effectiveness steps in only when they are fired at error. What the propelling gunpowder is to the cannon ball, that is the editorial argument to facts. A paper full of nothing but facts, strung up as you suggest, would be no better than a cannon ball magazine. There are no such papers, and we know of none that has ever tried the experiment. On the other hand we do know of "reform" papers that are all powder, whose explosions hurl not one fact, and that, consequently, accomplish nothing. The People belongs to neither category. It is intended for neither a pedantic string of facts, nor for a blunderbuss to fire blank cartridges with. It takes the facts and renders them effective by shooting them off, and it accomplishes the shooting by means of the editorial gunpowder of argument. Were you struck? —August 14, 1898. Oh, yes! There may be "a good deal of trouble connected with a Party's running its own press." That's true. But he who would escape the trouble of running his own business had better not join the labor movement, and if he has joined it, had better get out again. Where no oxen are the stall is clean. —April 15, 1906. 32
