STRONG FIGHT AGAINST
SHIP SUBSIDY BILL
Unqualified Condemnation Is Voted
by The American Federatidh of
PROTEST TO CONG)IESS
"Cunningly Devised Scheme to Enrich
Certain So-Called Ship Owners,"
Cincinnati, June 13.-Unqualified
condemnation of the ship subsidy
bill was voted unanimously today
by the delegates at the American
Federation of Labor convention al
most-simultaneously 'with President
Harding's dispatch of a letter ask
ing Congress to pass the measure
under threat of an extra session.
The* convention also voted to send
a protest against passage of the
bill to Senate and House leaders.
The bill was termed by the reso
lution adopted by the convention
qs a "cunningly devised scheme to
enrich certain classes of so-called
American ship owners at the ex
pense of the truly. American tax
ayer and also' to provide patronage
which is certain to be used for
purely political purposes." The
resolution concluded with the state
ment that the bill was "condemned
as inimical to the public interest,
and pa'ticularly destructive to the
nation's hopes for sea power."
j The action by the delegates was
their first attack on the Harding
administration, -which it was indi
cated by the federation's executive
council report would be the brunt
of other attacks (luring the two
weeks' convention. All other mat
ters were laid aside for considering
the shipping bill, but the only floor
discussion that came while the meas
ure had the right of way was from
Andrew Furuseth, president of the
While the action o nthe shipping
bill was the outstanding develop
ment of the convention, interest
among the delegates also was cen
tered in the first movement for a
contest of membership of the fed
eration's executive council. Joseph
A. Franklin, president of the Boiler
makers' Union, announced his candid
acy for treasurer, opposing Daniel
Tobin, president of the Teamsters'
Union, who is 'a candidate for re-elec
Mr. Franklin's anonuncement came
after a meeting of the chiefs of eleven
rail unions, which control about one
third of the convention vote, and the
candidacy of Mr. Franklin was re
garded as a movement to give the rail
organizations a representative on the
council. ' No claim of strength was
made by Mr. Franklin, but he and his
friends began a campaign that will
end on the last (lay of the convention,
almost a fortnight away.
The move is the second in recent
years by the rail unions to win a
place on the council, they having
a candidate in 1920 in William H.
Johnston, of the Machinists' Union,
who opposed Jacob Fiacher, of the
Barbers' Union, for a vice presi
dency. Although +-r. Franklin's an
nouncement sail he would oppose
Mr. Tobin, it was later said among
delegates that he might switch and
oppose Mr. Fischer.

Summerton, S. C., June 8, 1922.
Editor of The Manning Times:
On the second- day of June, the
writer, with several friends from Sum
merton, jumped in a touring car and
made a hurried trip to Florence, South
Carolina, the object of the trip being
connected with a certairt bankruptcy
proceeding before Referee Kirk
whom, after some difficulty, we found
happily housed in the Federal Court
House at Florence. Kirk, the Referee,
claims an aristocratic pedigree and
traces his ancestral history bac kto
the first beginnings of South Carolina
history, but the writer has investigat
ed the matter and finds that the
word "Kirk" means a little Church,
and therefore Referee Kirk is not a
person at all, but he is merely a little
sacred edifice, being made a part of
the Federal Court building at Flor
ence by the judicial decree of Federal
Judge H. A. M. Smith. Ever since
the writer first commenced the read
ing of history, he has understood that
when our forefathers settled this coun
try, they declared for the separation
of the Church and the State, but when
Federal Judge Smith installed Kirk,
the Referee, in the Federal building at
Florence, he clearly made Kirk, the
Church, a part and parcel of the Fed
eral Court House and thereby violat
ed the first principles of the Constitu
tion of the United States. The pub
lic highway from Summerton to Flor
ence, despite heavy rains which came
down in torrents during the day and
had been falling heavily during a
period of two weeks, was in line shape
and condition, with the exception of
that part of the road between the
town of Turbeville in the County of
Clarendon and the town of Olanta in
the County of Florence, covering a
distance of about six miles. Both
Florence County and Clarendon Coun
ty have neglected that part of the
highway between Turbeville and
Olanta, and the fact that such a con
dition of affairs "xists in a disgrace
to both Florence County and Claren
(loll County. The writer understands
that the dividing line between Flor
once and Clarendon Counties runs
somewhere between the towns of Tur
beville and Olanta, the result being
that each County has simply worked
up the public road to the farthest
town in each Count.,, and have neg
lected the intervening space of pos
sibly six miles, which is traversed
here and there by numerous neighbor
hood roads, none of which can be
traveled with any degree of pleasure.
Now, the people living between the
towns of Olanta and Turbeville need
help and deserve to be treated better
in the matter of a public highway
than the aforesaid facts would tend
to show, and the object of this letter
is to bring the pressure of public
opinion on the authorities of Florence
and Clarendon Counties and force the
|completion of a safe and decent high
| way between the towns of Olanta and
Turbeville. Good roads are the fore
runners of civiization, it is a com
mon sight to sei grown men and wo
men who live between the towns of
Olanta and Turbeville sitting in their
rocking chairs on the front porch ab

.without. any idea of the necessity of
I shoes as a rotect i -n f:nm t'ie r rvag
es of hool worm. to .;:y nothing
about the comfort and the pieas -e of
wearing a nice pair of shoes. The
sole object of Christianity is to make
decen citizers and the earth a fit
plice to live in, and the writer has
always had scant patience with those
ol religious codgers, who are always
r-eparinIg' treasures to lay up in
Ileaven and to fit themselves for man

PRESIDENT HARDING MAY
CALL [XTRA SESSION
President Pilans to ["orce Vote on Ship
WARNS REPUBLICAN LEADERS
That He Will Feel Compelled to Call
Special Session Unless Ac
tion Is Taken
Washinigton, June 13.-Warning
by President Harding that he would
feel obligated to call Congress in
special sesson f t failed to take up
the ship subsidy bill prior to adjourn
ment was supplemented today by a
White House announcement that the
administration was determined to
press unremittingly for action now.
The President's view on the ques
tion of an extraordinary session were
set forth in a letter written May 26
to Chairman Campbell of the House
rules committee, expressing the hope
that the committee in charge of legis
lative machinery woulI open the way
for speedy consideration of the
measure. Copies were obtained mean
while by the merchant marine com
mittee, framing the bill--which was
ready tonight to introduce it tomor
row-and Republican committee men
decla"'ml the notice served by the Pre
silent would rally many Republicans
to its support.
It was dislch3,ed at t. White
House that the 're'silent could suffer
n1o ce-iter disanpoint met. than that
which would come through failure to
put the shipping bill to a vote. 11 use
leaders who have talked with him on
the subject have stated that he has
been most insistent that the measure
be taken LII), if necessary, as a
straight party issue, believing its en
actment of the greatest value to the
business welfare of the country.
While the merchant marine c;,m
mit.tee was working rapidly to have
the bill in shape for the House to
morrow, Representative Davis, Ten
nessee, a Democratic member, launch
ed the first minorty attack on it, de
elaring it "vicious" in its provisions.
There was animated discussion
among members as to the effect of
the President's letter after publica
tion of the text. Considering the
Democratic oppostion and Republican
"disaffection," one of the Republican
leaders asserted today that as matters
stood it was extremely doubtful if a
special rule, giving the bill the right
of way, could be passed in the house.
The principal Republican opposition
was reported among members from
Kansas, Iowa, Mdinnesotla and Wisoon.
