A. F. of L. Bulwark of Capitalism
Says Babson in Wall Street Report
Big. business and all allied and re
,actlongry forces. in America may re
joice in the information conveyed in
the report of Roger W. Babson, auth
or of "Babson Reports," which at
:.tempts to keep the money lords of
*this country informed of all radical
tendencies of labor.
In this report it is stated that
Gompers opposes a "sober" working
.class, because that means a "radical"
working class, and further charges
the "beer special" sent to Washing
ton during the A. F. of L. convention
was merely a part of the campaign
to keep labor from becoming sober.
This charge is in harmony with
Gompers' patriotic apearance recent
ly before the judiciary committee of
the U. S. senate, charging that a dry
U. S. is an aid to bolshevism. Gomp
ers produced a report on conditions
in Detroit since Michigan went dry,
pointing out that numerous radical
publications had been started, a
school organized, a home for the
workers. "The House of the Masses"
-bought costing $75,000, and nuiner
oils other bolshevik activities for
:stimlatitlng the workers mentally
dcirried out successfully.

LABOR'S FEAiRt OF BOLSHEVISM.
,By ROGER BABSON.
(His Report to America's Money
As we go to press, the annual con
vention of the American Federation
of Labor is still in progress in At
lantic City. A final report on its
performances will be given in our
next issue. We deal with the temper
and spirit of the convention,
Caution, conservatism, prejudice
these are the qualities which stand
out. Indeed it might be safe to sub
stitute for these words the one word
We say this guardedly, for the
ways of the convention are deep, and
one cannot he too sure that his diag
nosis are correct. If the word should
be FEAR, the next question is, what
is it that is feared? And after all.
maybe it should not be called FEAR
For example, why did the conven
tion adjourn to allow 400 or more
of the delegates to journey to Wash
ington to pray for the abolition of
the prohibition rule? Like any other
body of 400 average men in America
probably a majority of these men
take a drop at times. But, like oth.
ers, these men also know the gentle
art of brewing at home, and so havy
no fear of desert dryness. We d(
not :believe that labor, as a body, ih
"wet" when it comes to a questior
of saloons or no saloons.
It was alleged that the brewini
interests financed the trip, furnishing th

The common reply was, "Tney do not

Seattle, Aug. 2.--With the gen
eral support of the public and with
strong backing from various unions w
that are able to be of great assist- i
ance, the outlook for the striking it
millworkers at Ietllingham is exceed- i
ingly promising, according to Inter- F
national President Clair Covert of '
the Timber Workers' union, who is
keeping in close touch with the situ- r
Covert states that the Bellingham
Metal Trades council has placed the
lloedel-Donovan mills and the
Puget Sound Sawmills and Timber
company's mill on the unfair list.
The latter company on Saturday I
served notice on its 250 employes
that they must either join the Loyal
Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen
or quit their jobs. The next day an
advertisement, evidently paid for by
the firm, appeared in a Belllngham
paper, announcing that the employes
of the company "desired to make
the plant 100 per cent 4-L." ButI
on Monday morning, says Covert,
over 200 of the mten showed how
they felt about the matter by quit
ting the job and now only about 40
men are working in the plant. c
Four L's Banned.
"There is a strong feeling against h
the L. L. L. L.," said Covert Tues
day morning, "and this feeling is
increasing. The workers all know
that the L. L. I,. L. has never oper- r
ated to increase wages, but on the I
other hand has frequently stepped
into a dispute and forced the men a
to accept the employers' terms. The i
minimum rate that the L. L. L. I,.
is asking for this month is only %
$3.60, while the companies are ac- I
tually paying $4.40 and the union t
is asking for $4.80. These figures
speak for themselves."
Deputy State Labor Commissioner t
O. M. Strand went to Bellingham I,
from Seattle on Monday to confer
with both sides in the hope of set-I'
tling the dispute. The representa

pany absolutely refused to talk to

head- The passing of William Jennings
Real- Bryan is a remlarkable commentary
silly on the turn of public affairs in rc
ig na- cent years. Bryan, the idealist, made
\ few a great appeal to our people at one
New time. He is still an idealist of suf
ig olt ficient strength to resign the great
would office of secretary of stale rather
Ih tie than violate his conscience. The
democratic .machine, ruled by Wall
sliably street and southern Blourbons, has
i any- done its best to kill him off.
patri- Why, then, don't the people take
it was himn ill as their champion? Ilecaut.,e
d sis- the people needl more than good. men;

well as the heart is needed in these
