-POISON HEADLINES A front
page Daily News headline yesterday
said: "Labor Fights Plan of "Wilson
to Make Rail Strike Illegal" In the
regular news story below it was then
stated that the American Federation
of Labor at Baltimore is taking a
stand against compulsory arbitration
and against any legislation for this
nation modeled on the Canadian in
dustrial disputes act In no way was
' it shown by the Daily News that
Pres. "Wilson is committed to compul
sory arbitration. In fixing a head
line on its front page declaring that
organized labor and the president are
.' quarreling over compulsory arbitra
tion the Daily News played the role
v of a rather dirty sensationalist.
It is made clear again that Pres.
Wilson has some experts at poisoning
the news among.his plutocratic ene
mies n the railroad-fed press of Chi
cago. The Tribune today launches
, the same lie as the News yesterday.
Both these papers know well Pres.
Wilson never advocated that the
right to strike should be taken away
from the working class.

election about millions of buBhels of
.corn from Argentina being dumped

or whether it was just plain cam
paign corn for feeding Tribune vot
ers before election..
"NEED FOR SPEED. Practically
all the big railroad systems will at
tack the validity of the Adamson 8
hour law by injunction proceedings."
Which is just about the best thing
that could happen for all concerned.
The majority of the people of the
United States are in sympathy with
the 8-hour day movement. The pres
ent congress is assuredly. If the Ad
amson bin is faulty, the sooner the
fact is established the better it will
be. Then the coming session of the
64th congress can 'remedy the de
fects, if they may be remedied" with
ample time for consideration and de
liberation.. If an adjudication of the questions
involved should be deferred until
after the 4th of March, the passage
of a new bill, or the proper amend
ment of the Adamson law, would
come before a lower house which
promises to be Republican by a small
The courts should rush a hearing
of the injunction cases.
