LET LABOR DEMAND A SHOWDOWN ON
THOSE CHARGES OF SHAKE-DOWNS
Make the Investigation Thorough and Find Oat If There
Are Crooks On Both Sides Look Up the Charges ,
of Employers Trying to Crush Com
v petitors With Strikes,
BY N. D. COCHRAN
Now that charges haver been publicly made that certain business agents
of labor unions have been holding up employers, jt will be better for all con
cerned if the charges are thoroughly investigated.
If there are laborjeaders in Chicago who are grafting, who are or have
been calling strikes and putting workmen on the streets for no better pur
pose than to feather their own nests then honest unionism will profit by
a complete exposure of any such betrayal.
There is nothing honest unionism has to fear by such investigation,
PROVIDED THE INVESTIGATION IS HONEST AND THOROUGH.
But if money has actually- passed from employers to labor business
agents, then investigate' the whole thing arid find out how much both sides
are to blame. - --ru" - -
