C. F. OF L. OFFERS TO DEMON
STRATE APPLIED CHRISTIANITY
An invitation to the Church Fed
eration to come to its next meeting
and "learn something of applied
Christianity" was issued yesterday
by the "Chicago Federation of Labor.
This was the drift of a resolution
passed yesterday by the labor body.
Added, to it was an amendment em
bracing a speech by Fred Hopp, finan
cial secretary, in which he called at
tention to the fact that the Church
Publishing Company, which printed
a great deal of the "Go-To-Church
Sunday" literature, was being prose
cuted by State Factory Inspector Os
car F. Nelson for violation of the
child labor law.
The action on the Church Federa
tion followed the receipt of a com
munication from that body urging
the members of the labor body to co
operate in making "Go-To-Church
Sunday" a success.
There were several speeches rela
tive to the communication. Many
speakers spoke of the abuse of the
Golden Rule in the modern churches.
One declared the best sermon he ever
heard was preached by a speaker at
a meeting of the Chicago Federa
tion of Labor.
The federation also decided to re
main absolutely non-partisan in the
coming election and for this reason
voted to indorse no candidates,
whether they were members of a laV
bor union or otherwise.
There was considerable discussion
on a resolution to abolish free lunch
offered by the Chicago Cooks' and
Pastry Cooks' Union. The resolution
branded free lunch as unsanitary.
The cooks also asserted that free
lunch was prepared by scabs. John
C. Harding fought against indorsing
the resolution, declaring it was not a
labor body's place to bother with a
fight that only involves the saloon--keepers
and a few politicians. This
seemed to echo the general sentiment
of the delegates. "
Jos. W. Morton then offered a reso
lution indorsing free lunch if pre
pared under union conditions. This
was passed. x
