WASHINGTON. Jan. 11. The
northwestern railway merger may
have a deep and vital significance for
organized labor. Monopoly is almost
always inimical to labor. Reduce the
number of employers in any impor
tant line of business, and wages and

for the labor world, a monopoly, and
'it is evident that the locomotive en

erally have nothing to gain as the
result of its continuance.
The heads of the great rail
way labor organization launched
by appointment with the Presi
dent yesterday, and the confer
ence which followed lasted until after
3 o'clock. The Attorney General of
the United States was present, and

conference may be very important, i

operation .between the administration
and organized labor in order to bring
these things about. '
Those who say they know the pur-
nose cf yesterday's conference claim!
that the President, who for weeks has
ueen studying the northwestern rail-
way erser from the view point of
the statutes said to be involved, the
probable effect of the merger on rates,
and the discriminations which it may
make possible, at last reached the
position where he wanted to study it
from the view point of the enormous
labor interests which are involved.
He wanted to know whether the mer
ger, in the opinion of the heads of
the great railway brotherhoods, was
to be regarded as a menace to labor '
Back of the conference is the fact,
now well established, that the train
men and employes generally of the
Northern Pacific railway are greatly
disturbed over the merger, and pre
dict that unless it can be prevented,
there will be a general shading bf
