ISSUE OF VERACITY
Raised Over That Trouble Avith
Plate Printers. -
P0WDEEL1 SAYS rOSTEK HAS LIED,
IT the Secretary H Been Correctly Re
ported by the Press The Knights ot
Labor Leader Gives His Version of Re
cent Conference on the Engraving and
- Printing; Buretn Dispute Gompers Ar
rives at Washington and Has a Confer
ence with the Secretary. -
Philadelphia, July 3.-A statement
relative to the controversy over the em
ployment of the plate, printers dropped
from the rolls of the bureau of printing and
engraving at W.ishincrton has been issued
by General Matter Workman Powderly.
These plate prin ers are Knights of Labor
and were discharged for insubordination
and other causes, some time ago. Since
then the knights have been hard at work
to have them reinstated, with' poor suc
cess up to a few weeks ngo, when it was.
threatened that if they were not given
work the fight would be carried into the
Ohio campaign nnd the knights massed
against McKinler. Since then there have
been numerous i-onferences, the last one
being reported ia these dispatches from
Washington, in which an agreement was
nearly arrived at when a committee of the
Federat ion of Labor demanded a confer
ence. Postponed the Matter.
The demaud of the federation men
caused a hitch because tfty claimed that
the replacing of the knights would dis
place fedemt ion men, who were on the
waiting list, atd ' Secretary Foster w-3
represented as saying that the two labor
organizations must settle their own dis
pute before he to jk further action, A dis
patch yesterday from Wa-shington says:
"President Gomt ers and Secretary Evans,
of the Federation of Labor, arrived from
Xew York this afternoon and had a confer
ence with Secretary Foster in
relation to the troubles in the bn
reau of engravir g and printing. These
gentlemen fo-mally.protested against the
injustice of show ing any favoritism to a
particular class of plate printers. Mr.
Hompers did not express any objection to
the secretary's action in iifuoringhe past
records of the seven discharged Knights
Wants the Rrles Strictly Enforced.
'But he insisted that it would be unfair
to give those met any preference over oth
ers occupying places as chance printers
and applicants for presses. President
Gompers claims that the rules governing
the employment )t plate printers should
be strictly observed. During a general
talk with the secretary over affairs at the
bnreau, Mr. Gon.pers expressed great coi
fidence in the fairness and ability cf Col.
Meredith, chief of the bureau of engraving
and printing, and will, in a few days, and
by letter, express his views as stated to
Statement of Powderly.
Powderly prefaces his statement with
the remark that none of the general offi
cers of the knights has said anything to
the press on the f-ubject of the plate print
ers, having purposely refrained from say
ing or doing, an yibing that would embar
rass the admin stration. He then pro
ceeds: "But I f.?el that the statements
charced to the s-H?retary of the treasury
demand some recurnition and denial, since
they are entirely and unqualifiedly false
He has stated, so it is alleged, and he has
not denied it, hat the plate printers'
trouble was not -he subject of discussion
at the meeting h ld at Mansfield between
Senator Sherman, Major McKinley and
himself. That natter was discussed at
Mansfield, a setrlemenr advised, and I
ho?dt.he prnofs orer the signature of Ma
jor McKinley 'lir.iself.
" The Conference at Washington.
"On his return to Washington the sec
retary of the tn asury wired the general
worthy foreman of this organization, Mr.
Cavanach. to come to Washington that
the matter could be settled. The general
worthy foreman complied with the re
quest, and on June 30 Messrs. Devlin and
Cavanagh called at the treasury depart
ment, saw Mr. Foster, and concluded an
agreement to restore the discharged men
to their placs; he even went so far as to
write to one of thtm asking him to advise
him whether he wished to be re-employed.
That letter embodied the agreement en
tered into. It is written in his own hand
and over his owd signature. We hold that
letter as proof or what we say. Mr. Dev
lin made the mi raorandum of theteras
on which the agreement was based, and un
the streneth of which he wrote the letter.
Terms of rhe Agreement.
"The terms a-e as follows: First, that
the seven men w ho have bepn dismissed
from thei rolls in the plate printing depart
ment shall be testored to their former
places,, or places of equal importance and
pay; and that tl ey shall be treated with
the same eonsidcration as other plate
printers by the cuief and his assistants in
the bureau; that four of them shall be re
stored within ten days, and the balance
within two weeks from this date. The
foregoing was approved by Mr. Foster,
secretary of the treasury, and Mr. Mere
dith, chief of the bureau of engraving and
printing. It was stated by Mr. Meredith
that the agreement could be carried out
without the displacement of any men in
The Federation Demands m Bearing.
"These deliberations were concluded and
those present congratulating themselves
upon the happy- termination of the diffi
culty, when a conmiMee of plate printers
were called into the secretary's chamber
by Mr. Meredith. The card which' an
nounced their (j-rival bore this inscrip-
tirtn. 'A Halona-tnn t - A V N .
Federation of Labor desires to be heard
before an ag-eeneut is arrived at with the
Knightiwjf Ibor.' These men had been
called away from -their machines at 11
o'clock that day, just as soon as it became
known that Mr. Cavanagh had arranged
w ith the secretary of the treasury for an
A Charge of Bad Faith.
"They were dr lied by Mr. Meredith as
to their speech and conduct .while deliber
ating with the at cretary, but the instruc
tions were not complete, for Mr. Meredith
forgot to tell th nn the name of the or
ganization they -ere supposed to repre
sent before the necrefcary, and they gave
the name of aa association that does not
and never did exist. After a short inter
view with this committee the aecrstarr
turned tp Mr. Drrlin, and.stmtchingsome
papers from his hand, said: 'If tbere is
to be a fight w.th this organization or
yours, I don't kt ow but what I had bet
ter fight yours. ' To that Mr. Devlin re
plied: 'If there js to be a fight I guess we
can dt a 'lit tie of that ourselves.'- - -
. Couclnded to Consult Gompers.
"Mr. Deviiu -then called his attention to
the fact that he bad eoneluded an agree
ment to settle the matter; that in that
agreement nb mail! whether Knight ot
Liilior or member-of the : federation, was
to be discriminated against; but the secre
tary of the treasury stated that he -would
have to sand for, Mr. Oompors before he
could arrive at a further understanding of 1
the case..- The advisers of Mr.. Foster have
influenced - him to , so act , as to givej
the controversy lsuch'-a Coloring as to
create the Impression that it is a struggle
between labor organizations; Such is not
the case. - We have no fight, quarrel, or
dispute with any labor organization, and
this contest will not be so regarded by the
general officers ot the Knights of Labor.
Mr. Foster has &n undoubted right to con
sult Mr. Gompers if he pleases, but the
tact still remains that none of the men ln-i
vtolved belong to any 'organization but the
Knights of Labor." .
