said that. on every hand. and for the
slighest provocation, ali classes of or?
ganized labor stand ready to inaugurate
a strike with atl Its attendant evils. and
that in adition to this, strdnger ties of
cousolidation are being urged over the
country among labor unions, with the view
of being able to inaugurate a sympa

of labor simply to redress the grievances

Mr. Thompson declared that many labor
leaders aro open and avowed Socialists;
that their organizatlona are weakening the
ties of citizenship among thousands of our
people in that they have no other stand?
ard of obligattons than that these organl
zations inculcate. Their treaty will spread
disregard of rights of others; they are
destroying respect for law and authority
among the working classes; they are edu

princlpally in a correct pubiic sentiment

Mr. Thompson expressed the opinion
that pubiic sentiment iin tho South wouid
