Peoria Wire Fence Company
Files Petition for Injunction
PICKETS AROUND PLANT
Strike Follow Discharge of All Ma
chinists First of Last
Peoria, 111., June IS. Drastic action
to drive away the pickets of the local
machinists' union, stationed during
the present strike In the vicinity of the
Keystone Steel and Wire company's
plant at South Kartonville, was taken
late yesterday efternooa when the big
fence concern filed a petition in the
circuit court asking for an injunction
of a half dozen workmen, now employ
ed In the machine shops, who claim
they have been accosted by the pick
ets and efforts made to have them
cease their work. Some of the affi
ants claim they have been offered mon
ey to keep away from the plant.
According to the Keystone company,
it became necessary on May 1, 1913,
to discharge all the machinists em
ployed in the machine shop of the
plant because the men were threaten
ing to strike and a strike would have
greatly crippled the factory.
It is further claimed in the petition
for relief that shortly after the dis
charge of the machinists the workmen
held a meeting la their lodge rooms
; and a strike was called. Also that H.
J. Molloy was chosen to act as a busi
ness agent for the union to handle the
situation for the men.
From May 1 on to the present, ac
cording to the Keystone petition, pick
ets have been maintained around the
factory, who constantly annoy the
workmen employed at the concern, or
new men coming into the city to work
in the machine shops. It is further
charged that the pickets have gone so
far as to threaten the men at work. Al

Hon. W. Elza Williams, one of the

es on paramount issues during the
On the tariff. Congressman Williams,
In the course of his remarks, raid:
"As the result of the issues of the
lant campaign, the tariff is t,o be re-vlst-d.
and tha revision is to be down

ed with tho rep.;onsibil!ty, and In keep
ing with its platform pledges and cam
paign promir.es is now engaged In a
good faith effort to comply w ith the
mandate of the American people ex
preat.ed at the pails. The democratic
party has always stood for a tariff for
revenue ouly, and insists thut there Is
no constitutional authority to impose
tax1 upon the people for uny other
purpose. We are oppoM-d U a protec
tive tariff thai 'o a tariff tax levied

but It is urged that it will remove the

of manufacturers. At Uie same t'me

and almost in the same breath it is
ured that it will not reduce the cost
of living and the price of necessaries
in 'he homes of our people. Just how
these two arguments can be reconciled
Is beyond my understanding. I be
lieve it to be a fact, as stated by an
eminent authority, that the tariir is
the mother of trusts; that we have pro
tected American industries in such ex
cessive profits and against foreign
competition to such an extent that we
have piled un In this country in the
hands of the beneficiaries of the protec
tive system the colossal fortunes that
are a menace to our institutions.
"I fully agree with the theory of
this bill. It may not be peKect; uo
assessment ever was. There are un
der any syptem or scheme of taxation
inequalities, unfair valuations, and an
unequal distribution of the burdens of
government local, state and national
which can not be avoided. But I be
lieve that this bill approaches nearer
to exact Justice and to the equal dis
tribution of the burdens of government
than any tariff measure devised since
the Walker tariff. And I further be
lieve that within six months from the
date of is enactment business will
have adjusted itself to n?w conditions
and to new rates, and that 'universal
prosperity will prevail. Hut whatever
may be the result of the bill, there is
no escaping a substantial and material
jeducMon at tariff rates; the people
have demanded it,; that was the Issue
which disrupted the republican party,
and the democratic party would be
derelict In its duty, unmindful of its
obligations, and unfaithful to every
trust if it did not enact into law 'a
tariff measure limiting taxation to a
revenue basis and eliminating the
whole policy and f ystem of protection,
except in so far as incidental protec
tion results from a revenue tariff."
On the income tax. Congressman
Williams said among other things:
"The democratic party has demand
ed for years that wealth shall contrib
ute its Just share to the burdens of gov-'
eminent, and to that end has favored
an income lax. The supreme court
held the last income tax unconstitu
tional. For years the democratic par
ty has sought a constitutional amend
ment authorizing the method of taxa
tion. Of course, the men enjoying
great incomes have, through the in
strumentality of the republican party,
opposed such an amendment, and it
was not until we secured a democratic
house and a senate anti-republican that
we were able to force to the submis
sion of the people a proposi'ion fth
such an amendment to the constitu
tion. We expect that the reduction ip
tariff rates will materially reduce the
revenue derived from tariff taxation,
and we have provided in this bill for
an income tax to make up the differ
ence. It is said in opposition to this
provision in the bill that those enjoy
ing an income less than $4,000 will
escape their fair share of taxation and
that the burden will fall on those who
enjoy a larger Income. That is true,
but who can better afford It? It must .
not be forgotten that under the tariff
