Flint, Mich., Oct. 23. Notice was
served jn employers of labor last
night by Secretary Redfleld of the de
paTtment of commerce that he had
not abandoned his Intention of inves

made on the plea that the new tariff
compelled' retrenchment. The seem

tore the Flint board of commerce.
"When this matter was suggested
some months ago," he said, "there ap
peared very general comments on the
alleged action, which comments were
chiefly remarkable for their vigor in
dealing with an assumed state of facts
that did not exist.
"An attitude of, courteous candor
which was not for a moment misun
derstood by the gentlemen who were
directly concerned was so altered in
the telling of it as to put the depart

for so doing.
"When the direful results which
prophets of evil foretold did not occur
the facile imaginations of some editors
led them to say that the secretary of
commerce had withdrawn from his at
titude. The secretary of cdrnmerce had
dene no such thing. He accepts no
responsibility for the vagarious re
marks they would have had him Bay
and which they would like to criti
cise. wnx ot bk BitTran.''
"Meanwhile the department will not
be 'bluffed" by those who wish it to
err into action which would have for
the sole basis of it existence the hope
of some that it might make a mistake."
The secretary declared that the
threats of reduction in wages as a re

become few of late. This be attribut

administration that it would act
promptly where such threats were J
