That the farmers of the country

ers at Washington, who appear before

CHICAGO. Auc. 1. In his letter
accepting the socialist vice-presidential
nomination made public today by
socialist national headquarters. Sey
mour Stedman of Chicago summarized
the party's aim as the "transforma
tion of the present capitalist system
into a collective and co-operative so
ciety." 'We have always," he added, "ad
vocated a peaceiul change and this
high hope is still cherished by us."
Eugene V. Debs, five times head of
the socialist ticket, was notified in
prison at Atlanta, Ga.. by a special
committee several months ago and
made an informal address in reply.
Notification ceremonies were dis
pensed with relative to the vice-pres
idential candidate.
A change in society, Stedman de
clared, is impending, and he said that
th socialist party offered the only
practical programme to avert threat
ened chaos. He urged Immediate
socialization of railroads and mines.
flour mills and stock yards.
Nomination 1 Accepted.
I accept the nomination you tender
me, he wrote, "deeply appreciating
the confidence and comradeship with
which it comes and pledge my beat
efforts to meet the. duties and, re
quirements of the task you have set
for me.
'Our beloved standard bearer Is
mute by the Judgment of a harsh and
unreasonable Interpretation of war
time legislation. His imprisonment
is continued by a ruthless, despotic
chief of the democrats, supported by
a republican congress. Yet his clarion
call will rally together all Intelligent
workers of hand and brain, all who
love liberty and believe in freedom
and humanity."
Of the work of the peace confer
ence. Mr. Stedman said:
"Self-determination meant to our
party and comrades what it- said. It
was a declaration which first came
to life from a convention of our party
and we are the only political party
in the United States which stands
for keeping the faith and recognizing
the Russian socialist republic, the
only party in the United States which
demands recognition of the Irish re
public. Proposed Leogne Denounced.
"We denounce the proposed league
of nations as an organization of inter
national capitalists banded together
for the purpose of subjugating and
exploiting the peoples of the world.
"We favor a league of free peoples
administered by delegates elected di
rectly by and responsible to the peo
ple." Dealing with domestic affairs, Mr.
Stedman continued:
r reedom or speech has become a
byword, the liberty of the press is i
lost liberty: representative govern
ment-is attacked and successfully
throttled in the state' legislature of
New York: to the citizens of a con
gressional district have twice been
denied representation by denying its
elected representative his seat and
participation in congress: to newt
papers, the most enlightened in the
country, are denied the use of mails
mob violence and murder have been
and are being tolerated and approved:
houses have been searched and papers
seized and people arrested without
warrant or legal procedure.
Profit-Grabbing Scored
"Large Industries go unchecked in
grabbing profits; the railroads are
handed back to private privilege wrih
a loan and guaranteed dividends, the
miners and railroad workers are
crushed by injunctions and indict
ments and tried under war statutes
for offenses charged to have been
committed within the last few
months. And now, by no means, do
we behold a relaxation. The most
firmly entrenched capitalists of the.
world are in this country. The world
war has solidified and united them.
They control the press and the ave
nues of information and the economic
power and wealth of the country.
"The closing of war in Europe
opens more clearly the class con
flict. We are drifting Into a firmly
established captalist despotism with
thousands of spies, reckless power
