WALHALLA, S. C.
WEDNESDAY', JULY ll?, 1022,
lhere are strange tilings taking
place these days, many of thom grow
ing ont Ot the strike that has been
instituted by tho organization com
posod of those bodies of workmen
Known as the maintenance of way
men men who look after the repair
ol rolling stock, who work In tho
shops ol' tho railroads and go out
. ad cloar ni? when wrecks occur, and
numerous othor forms of essential
work that must be done before any
railway eau operate successfully, or
al least advantageously to the public
interest, Wo do not know on which
side tho greater weight of justice or
grievance may rest-the railways or
tho employees. Our observation bas
been, In tho majority o' cases, that
there is right and there is wrong on
bath sides. Dut that is not what wo
intend to consider, lt is really none
of our business, being an outsider.
On July 13th Mayor il. Tv Agustin,
of Hamlet. N. C., wired to railway
officials as follows:
"Understand strike-breakers have
been soul to Hamlet to work. Tho
mon who won! ont on July l are
law-abiding citizens, and it' these
men aro allowed to remain hero,
lhere Will ho serious trouble. As
mayor of Hamlet l must insist that
hes? nev |)0 removed and no more
sent hero. I make* tins request in
t riler thal property ami lives may bo
l rou utod."
Tho mayor of Hamlet implies ono
u;' two very damaging conditions
either tin i tho railway was Import
ing murderers and firebrands, or thal
his boasted ."law-abiding citizens"
mc not law-abiding citizens nt nil.
Which is tho ea.-e?
"Understand." says the mayor's
ti legram, "strike-breakers have been
sent to Hamlet to work." lt is un
lawful to work in Hamlet? Was a
local law passed in Hamlet prevent
ing those who si rind; from working
legally, and they, in the exercise of
their law-abiding principles, were
forced tu quit work in order to con
form ti) the law. and to remain "law
abiding" to the end'.' If not. then
their let.ving their jobs was purely
voluntary, and if others may deem lt
not unlawful to take up the lawful
work that was laid aside, who're is
thc wrong itt lt?
We ita ve no argument In favor of
tile roads in this situation; none for
(or against) thc mon who are now
Striking, this is a matter for the
workmen and the employers to ad
Just between themselves. We would
not, if wo ?ould, invoke any law to
force tho striking men to resume
their work. We seo no reason why
"law-abiding citizens" should invoke
violence, blood-shed, loss of life or
destruction of property in any effort
lo provont Hie railroads from man
ning their shops and inaintonancc-of
way /orcos if they seek to do so. Tho
provinco of local .authorities, as wo
icc it, is simply to see that the laws
.ire observed by both sides-that no
violence is done to men who may
wish to work, and that no striker is
molested or prevented from going to
work if ho (booses or peaceably and
With arguments seeking to dissuade
others from working If ito may so
choose. But to request that no mon
be sent lo any place for the laudable
purpose of working, because, for
sooth, the citizens of that communi
ty aro law-abiding, is but to admit
ell founded doubt of ibo statement
thus made. Tho position of Mayor
Austin ls untenable when analyzed.
