Message to Labor Issued by
Washing-ton, Aug. 31.-President
Wilson in a Labor Day message to
American workers to-night announc
ed that he would call in the near fu
ture a conference of representatives
of labor and industry to "discuss
fundamental means of bettering the
whole relationship of capital and la
bor and putting the whole question
of wages upon another footing."
The president said he was encour
aged and pleased with the results
thus far of the government's efforts
to bring down the cost of living and
expressed confidence that substan
tial results would be achieved in the
solving of this problem. Patience
and vigilance, however, he said, must
be exercised and the government's
efforts must have co-operation of
Presumably referring to the exist
ing labor unrest and threats of
every citizen to refrain from doing
anything that would tend to increase
the cost of living but instead to do
all possible to promote production.
The president expressed partic
ular gratification at the .attitude tak
en by the representatives of organi
zed labor in supporting the govern
ment's program to meet requests for
additional wages through a lowering
of living costs and said he hoped
that the workers themselves would
"move with the government instead
of against it in the problem of this
great domestic problem".
Message of President.
The Labor Day message as made
public to-night at the White House
"I am encouraged and gratified
by the program which is being made
in controlling the cost of living. The
support of the movement is wide
spread and I confidently look for
substantial results, although I must
counsel patience as well as vigilance
because such will not come instant
ly or without team work.
/ *'Let me again emphasize my ap
peal to every citizen of the country
to continue to give his personal sup
port in this matter and to make it as
active as possible. Let him not only
refrain from doing anything which
at the moment will tend to increase
the cost of living, but let him do all
in his power to increase the produc
tion, and further than that let him
at the same time himself carefully
economize in the matter of consump
tion. By common action in this di
rection we shall overcome a danger
greater than the danger of war. We
will hold steady a situation which is
fraught with possibilities of hard
ship and suffering to a part of our
population. We will enable the pro
cesses of production to overtake the
processes of consumption, and we 1
will speed the restoration of an ade
quate purchasing power for wages.
"I am particularly gratified at the 1
support which the government's pol
icy has received from the represen
tatives from organized labor and I
earnestly hope that the workers gen
erally will emphatically indorse the
position of their leaders and thereby
move with the government instead
of against it in the solution of this
greatest domestic problem. ,
Conference Held Soon.
"I am calling for as early a date
as practicable a conference in which
authoritative representatives of la
bor and bf those who direct labor
will discuss fundamental means of
bettering the whole, relationship of
capital and labor and putting the
whole question of wages upon
The proposed conference, it was
stated authoritatively to-night would
be called to meet soon after Presi
dent Wilson returns at the end of
tour of the West. It was thought
likely that the meeting would be
held at the White House as was the
reconstruction conference of gov
ernors and mayors last spring.
Proposals that a conference be
tween labor and employers be held
has been urged from a number of
quarters. Secretary Lane expressed ?
the belief in a statement a few days
ago that the president should call
such a meeting. Resolutions are
pending in both houses of congress
urging that workers and employers
be .'brought together.
In the president's promise to call
a labor-capital conference, officials
saw alleviation of the tension exist
ing among organized labor. Coming
on the eve of Labor Day it was be
lieved it would have a most bene
