Defines tho Position uf Organized Iitihor
On Kxiianilnti. ,
Boston, March 21. Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federatlor.
of Labor, was the principal speaker at
the peace meeting in Trcmont tem
ple, under the auspices of the Good
Citizens' Peace society.
Mr. Gompers referred to the posl
lion of organized labo'r on the question
of expansion, and said: "If It was
right for the founders of this govern
ment to fight for free government, it
is not now right to fight against it.
We are today fighting against the only
Asiatic country that has ever made
an attempt to establish a lepubllcan
form of government, and we are to
day seriously considering taking part
In a plan to divide up China, because
it will help our trade.
"The organizations of labor recog
nize that a large standing army Is a
menace to liberty and fomenter of
trouble between man and man. If
peace can not be secured In any other
way, the time is coming when feder
ated labor will refuse to make Imple
ments that are intended to strike down
their fellowmen; when ship builders
will refuse to construct vessels of war;
when sailors will refuse to navigate
ships of war, and when workers will
refuse to contribute their labors in
any way for the slaughter of their
brethren, wherever they may be. There
is a treaty being formulated by the
union workers of Great Britain and
America which will make peace neces
sary without the intervention of gov
ernments. There has never been a
conference of workers that has not
declared for tranquility and peace."

time of the next congress.

Attorney Generil Announced That Ho
Iinil Hern Unable to Secure Impor
tant Witnesses Who Ileptc
sent Ohio Itellueries.
New York, March 21. The hearing
in the case of the State of Ohio ex rel.
F. S. Monnett, attorney general,
against the Buckeye Pipe Line com
pany of Lima, O., was resumed in tho
office of Charles Edgar Mills, sitting as
Attorney General Monnett conducted
his side of the case. Messrs. Elliott
and Kline appearel for the company.
It was expected that the state of
Ohio would present representatives of
thre or four important oil refineries
of Ohio to give Information as to the
alleged arbitrary methods of the Pipe
Before the proceedings opened Mr.
Monnett announced that he had been
unable to secure those witnesses, and
after a brief re-examlnatlon of George
Rice he would close his case for the
time being. Mr. Monnett explained
that he was Informed that while the
local courts could compel the attend
ance of his witnesses, they could not
punish them If they refused to testify.
Tho proceedings against the Pipe
Line company are to secure an annul
ment of Its charter on the grounds
that the company has violated the
anti-trust law of Ohio, and that in de
fiance of the courts it is still a mem
ber of the Standard Oil trust.
The purpoae of calling Mr. Rice was
to allow him to testify In contradiction
to the statement made by John D.
ivrchbold that he had attempted to
blackmail the Standard Oil company
by demanding $500,000 for his oil prop
erties, which were worth about $25,000.
Mr. Rice, replying to the attorney
general's Invitation to make a state
ment, read from a lengthy manuscript:
"It is true," he said, "that in 188G,
on their solicitation, I did submit a
proposition to sell all of my oil prop
erties not only my refinery, but pro
duction as wen for the sum stated."
Mr. Rice quoted from the letters of
Mr. Archbold already published to
show that the Standard Oil company
had his proposition under considera
tion. "The Standard company," Mr. Rice
said, "by its control of the railroads,
has raised the freight rates so that
It was impossible for mo to carry on
"In 188G," he said, "the Baltimore
and Ohio and their southwestern con
nections raised their freight rates on
me from 50 to 1C2 per cent, and none
on tho Standard Oil trust, which closed
up 14 of my agencies out of 24 In five
months, and shut me out of over half
the towns in which I was doing busi
ness." Alaskan Fxpeditlnn.
