Priest Taken to Task
By Steel Strike Chief
President Tighe of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers, Excori
ates Pittsburgh Pastor for Open Letter Attacking
Strikers and Their Chiefs.
M. F. Tighe, international presi- t
dent of the Amalgamated Association at
of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers, to ft
which the bulk of the 400,000 strik- hi
ers in the steel industry belong, sent ai
the following reply to the Rev. tl
Thomas Devlin, pastor of Holy Cross
church of Pittsburgh, who denounced ir
the leaders of the steel strike as a w
menace to the nation in an open let- p:
ter to his parishioners recently: tl
'Dear Sir: o
"After reading in the Pittsburgh
Sunday papers your letter regarding
the present industrial struggle on the
part of the workers in the steel mills
of the country, I confess to a feeling
of sincere regret and sympathy, that
one of the same faith as myself, and
occupying the position that you do.
would give public evidence of lack of N
understanding on a subject so very t
important in the lives of present and :
"If after 36 years of constant com- h
munication with the workers in the t
iron and steel mills of your vicinity o
you have not acquired a knowledge
of the miserable conditions under t
which many of those workers were a
forced to labor; if yodi have not in ,
those years known of the many
many unsuccessful attempts made by
these workers to organize for the a
purpose of securing better conditionn.
and their failure owing to the un- t
scrupulous power and influence of i
corporate interests, then it must be
acknowledged that your powers of
observation have not been as acute as i
they should be.
"It may be that to one who teaches r
the doctrine of the lowly Nazarene.
•Who had no place wherewith to lay )
his head,' the attempt of the organ
ized labor movement to advance the t
steel workers to a plane above that
is not looked on with favor. It is -
true we have this as one of the ex- I
amples: 'The poor we have always
with us,' but, thanks to the organ- I
ized labor movement and to none 1
other, we are fast relegating that I
part to oblivion.
"When you attack the American I
Federation of Labor or any of its
agencies you certainly are treading
on grounds that at least you should
know something about. I
For your information let me say -
to you, that Mr. Foster is not a vice a
president of the American Federa- n
tion of Labor, nor a remote official
of that organization. He is a mem- a
her of the Carmen's union' and acts
in the capacity of an organizer. His
position is simply that of secretary of a
a national organization committee, i
composed of 24 international organ-I
izations of labor, many of the leaders t
of which are religiously of the same `
faith as yourself. The chairman of
the committee is as devout as any of
sour congregation. But had you,
stopped to think and not have lent
yourself to the soul-crushing corpo
rations, you could have seen that the
whole attack was not what Fitzpat
rick or Foster was politically or re
ligiously. but what could be done to
deceive the poor down-trodden wage
earners of the steel autocrats.
"Far be it from me to endorse or
countenance for one moment any of
the doctrines of anarchism or other
isms, but in this movement neitherI
Foster nor Fitzpatrick are issues.
The issue is, 'shall the American
wage workers in the steel mills in
free America live and die and hand
down to those who come after them,
the heritage of industrial bondage?'
"Did it occur to you. that by your
action you have simply made your
self one of the handmaidens of the
greatest and most rapacious trusts
that ever shackled the limbs of the
toilers, not only in the steel mills,'
but in many other lines of industry.;
That their position has made it pos
sible for many others to follow in
their footsteps; that to own a man
industrially is to own him both polit
ically and if necessary, his very soul,
for the seven-day week was one of
their policies until the labor organ
izations made them relinquish it in
"It is no wonder that many of the
leaders of the labor movement show
an indifference to the church, when
they know from actual experience
that they receive no encouragement
Ifrom that source, but, to the con-.
tairt, TiOu ninny of those wno tecrn

Boston "American" on India
In an editorial on the League of
Nations, Boston "American" on Sep
tember 7, 1919, says thus about In
"Until lately America has never
hesitated to express indignation at
the oppression by a powerful people
of a weaker, nor have we ever hesi
tated to give political asylum to
those patriots who have dared to rise
against oppresion and, having fail
ed, have fled to us for safety and
Quite in keeping with this (refus
al to receive delegates of Ireland and
Egy)pt) new and strange attitude on
the part of an American president
in the refusal of asylum to those dis
tinguished and patriotic Indians who
are now under arrest in America at
the request of the British govern
ment for having agitated against the
continuance of the two hundred
years of British oppression in India.
The practice of nations, internation
al law itself, requires us to give
asylum to these Indians, but presi
dent's ideas of the "new freedom"
and iis weird interpretation of the
"right of self-determination of peo
ples." his grotesque interpretation of
his own pledge that under the new
order of things no longer "shall the
powerful oppress the weak," has per
mitted these East Indians to be ar
rested in the United States and will
probably permit them to be delivered

"When the campaign of organiza
tion was first conceived it was well
understood that with the power that
wealth at all times is able to com
mand, that every agency that the
scheming mind of men could con
ceive would be employed to defeat
the movement, for just as the south
ern aristocracy fought to prevent the
release of the black slaves, so would
the corporation autocrats fight to
keep their wealth producers in their
power and submissive to their will,
"Knowing this, they (the organ
izers.) are not at all surprised at
anything lhat may occur to thwart
them in their efforts, but with a
faith that knows no such word as

right and the toilers of the steel mills
will be emancipated from the ills
that they today are suffering from.
