LABOR OFFICIALS RIDICULE
STAND OF LOCAL PAPERS
Officials of the Chicago Federation
of Labor, aroused at the "righteous
indignation" of railway officials over
the failure of arbitration -with their
employes, question the sincerity of
Chicago papers who have been howl
ing editorially for arbitration.
The following telegram has been
sent to President Wilson;
"President Woodrow Wilson, White
House, Washington, D. C. The Chi
cago newspapers, particularly the
Tribune, Herald, News and Post, will
be exceedingly bitter because of your
attitude in the railroad situation as
regards arbitration, which we under
stand it to be, that you are agreed
that arbitration should apply to
property right always but to hu
man rights never. Pour years ago
we had a signed agreement between
the Chicago Newspaper Publishers'
ass'n and the Printing Trades to ar
bitrate any difference which might
arise. The publishers broke that
agreement, locked out the employes
and teetotally refused to arbitrate.
. They are in a ridiculous position
when they critieifce you on the ques
tion of arbitration. John Fitzpat
rick, President; E. W. Nockels, Sec'y,
Chicago Federation of Labor."
