As the first of its kind, the Belgian strike is worthy of
studv. Its avowed object was to force the substitution of
manhood suffrage for pural voting. Its immediate provo
cation was the defeat of Liberal and Socialists coalition in
iwirliamentarv elections. These elements introduced the
manhood suffrage bill, which was refused consideration by
the clerical majority and the king. Then followed the

years of age with one or more children, paying a dollar
house tax, has a second vote, as does any citizen over 125

The number of voters in Belgium in 19U was 1,700,000,
of whom 995.000 had one vote, :)H5,000 two votes and
aiO.OOO three votes. This created a class government
based upon property, education and office holding, that
spelled discrimination for the people and enabled the
classes to out vote the masses.
Xo violence was attempted by the strikers, many of
whom sent their wives and families out of the country to
be eared for by socialists in other nations, thus enabling a
longer strike and creating a bond of sympathy with their
fellow toilers in other lauds. Troops were ordered out
bv the government although there were no demonstra
tions. Furthermore the army is honeycombed with so
cialism and it is doubtful if the soldiers would have obeyed
orders to shoot down their brothers.
The strikers had popular support and were sustained
bv public opinion, because their cause was a just one, and
because their opponents represented the reactionary and
stand pat forces of special privilege. Many employers
gave active support to the- strikers. Many continued
their employes wages. Others contributed to strike funds.
Koligious and political influences were also apparent.
Although this strike was successful, it does not follow
that another political strike would be especially if the
cause was a poor one or an unjust one. Immense masses
of men are hard to organize and restive of discipline.
Invoked in an unjust cause the political strike, like the
industrial strike, would fail. It probably could never be
used to the extent the Syndicalists contemplate its use but
can be made an extremely effective weapon to accomplish
needed political reforms, to sweep away in a few days the
barricades of privilege that caste has built for centuries
across the paJofjmnjaiy)rojress

Ohio and elsewhere fiom whom Pitts
hurghers get their milk sent word
hore today that they do not see how
they can comply with new requiro
ments of the city health depot tmont

milk at prevailing prices. Tho new
requirements demand stone, brick or
cement milk houses. There are H000
dairymen affected. These dairymen
furnish Pittsburgh uilli 3,000,000
jtiurls of milk daily. They say it
will cost them $800,000 to meet the
now heultli recpiircmeiits and they are
ufraid it cannot be done. Reports
today said tho fanners have organ

May 1, unless 'certain portions of
