E ON LABOR
Branders Shows Right to Organ
ize Is Not Recognized.
THE PLATFORM IS SILENT
Noted Lawyer Exposes the Flimsiness
of Promises Made to Workingmen by
-Perkins and His Candidate, Who
Stands for Private Monopoly.
"The new party pledges itself to so
cial and industrial justice and specific
ally to 'work unceasingly for effective
legislation looking to the prevention of
occupational diseases, overwork, invol
untary unemployment and other in
jurious effects Incident to modern in
dustry,' * . but nowhere in that
long and comprehensive platform
* . * can there be found one word
approving the fundamental right of
labor to organize or even recognizing
this right without which all other
grants and concessions for improve
ment of the condition ?of the working
men are futile. The platform promises
social and Industrial justice, but does
not promise industrial democracy. The
justice which It offers is that which
the benevolent and wise corporation
is prone to administer through its wel
fare department There is no promise
of that justice which free American
workingmen are striving to secure for
themselves through organization. In
deed, the industrial policy advocated
by the new party would result in the
denial of labor's right to organize.
"The new party stands for the per
petuation and extension of private
monopoly from which the few have
ever profited at the expense of the
many and for the dethronement of
which the people have, in the past,
fought so many valiant battles. Thac
cursed product of despotism the new
party, proposes to domestl a?.e in our
republic, proclaiming, 'We do not fear
commercial power.' Certainly organ
ized labor has had experience with the
great trusts which should teach all
men that commercial power may be so
great that it is the part of wisdom to,
fear' it" JiTaasr^^'S^^i^'^r'^'
The above declaration was made by
Louis D. Brandeis before the conven
tion of the American Federation of
Labor, Massachusetts state branch, at
Fitchburg, Sept 18.
Of Supreme Importance.
He urges a careful study of the new
party platform, particularly its effect
upon labor, noting not only WHAT IT
CONTAINS, but WHAT IT OMITS,
adding, "When you make that exami
nation you will find that there Is a
significant omission-and that this skill
fully devised platform TAKES FROM
LABOR MORE THAN IT GIVES."
Labor Record of Trusts.
Mr. Brandeis then lays bare the la
bor record of the trusts, declaring that
"great trusts-the steel trust, the sug
ar trust, the beef trust, the tobacco
trust, the smelter trust and a whole
troop of lesser trusts-have made the
extermination of organized labor from
their factories the very foundation
stone of their labor policy. The abili
ty to defeat labor's right to combine
seems to have been regarded by the
trust magnates as a proper test of the
efficiency of their capitalistic combina
Mr. Brandeis shows that in 1S99,
during the Colorado smelters' strike,
the American Smelting and Refining
company closed its mills where the
strikers had beeniemployed and trans
ferred the work to other mills, thus
breaking the strike. The United States
Steel corporation had similar success
in 1301 with the Amalgamated Asso
ciation of Iron and Steel Workers.
Had the association been dealing with
competing employers the result would
have been different The United States
Steel trust was prompt in introducing
this plan. June 17, 1901, six weeks
after it began its operations, its execu
tive committee passed this vote, which
was offered by Charles Steele, a part
ner of George W. Perkins in the firm
of J. P. Morgan & Co.:
"That we are unalterably opposed to
any extension of union labor and ad
vise subsidiary companies to take firm
position when these questions come up
and say that they ar e not going to rec
ognize it-that is, any extension of un
ion in mills where they do not now
Union Men Not Wanted.
The result waa that the bulk of
American union laboring men in the
iron, and steel industry were made to
understand that they were not wanted
at the works of the United States Steel
corporation. Places once filled by
American laborers loyal to their union
were given to others, and, as the Stan
ley committee found, "Hordes of la
borers from southern Europe poured
into the United States." * * .
Hence about SO per cent, of the un
skilled laborers in the Iron and steel
business arc foreigners of these class
es, the profits going to the steel corpor
ation. Mr. Brandeis declared that "the
immediate and continuing result of
the steel trust's triumph over organ
ized labor has been an extensive sys
tem of espionage aud repression."
There has been no disturbance of
business interests during this presiden
tial campaign. Why? Confidence in
the integrity of the Democratic nomi
nees and right purposes of the party.

"Dear me!" said Mrs. Peck, who was

patiently for a look at it. "H?re is a

he can find no trace of her."
