GREAT LABOR PROTEST MEETING TO
BE HELD IN WASHINGTON
Workers From All Over Country Will Meet and Demand
Better Laws From Congress-Socialists Pass
The biggest labor protest meeting
ever held in the United States will be
held by 1,000 delegates from all over
the country in Washington, D. C,
within the next two months. This
was the surprising announcement of
Adolph Gerner, vice president of the
United Mine Workers of America,
Illinois division, at the convention of
the national committee of the Social
ist Party this afternoon.
It will be bigger than any labor
convention, because it will be more
fcihtant. And the laboring -men are
going to carry their militancy to the
very doors of the White House.
The men want legislation that will
bring about more justice in America.
They will plan bills to this end.
Two bills which have been intro
duced in Congress which they are
particularly anxious to see passed,
are the bills recently introduced by
Sen. James E. Martlne of New Jersey
and Rep. Wm. W. Balz of Illinois.
Martine would prohibit all corpora
tions doing interstate business from
hiring armed guards. ,
