Washinagton, June Ii.-Organized
labor, bringing to cv1;rress today In a
public demonstration its - protest
amgainst proii::ition of beer and wines,
gave warning that the tranquilIty of
the working classes might be serious
ly m~ienaced by enforcement of the war
time prolilbition law.
Samuel Gompers, !'ead of the Am
crican Federation of Labor, said he
wa "a:'; .-hensive of results," fear
ing :l1bor '.Would not adijust its( If to
the new conditions. While lie declar
ed l: ior lealers wotiul do everything
they could to control the situation, he
was unable to say "Wihat.l ndividual
workers would do."
In a three hour meeting on the
esatern steps of the capitol other ad
vocates of wine and beer prohibition
repeal protvested that the provision was
striking at the personal liberty of the
masses, and was taking from millions
of workers their daily bread.
A crowd of several thousand, said
by labor oflicials to represent union
Inca in every state, came by special
trans for t he flag day protest meet
ing and clleered again and again dee
larations that the people never hlad
been given an opport unIty to Cxpress
thcmselves on plohllbition. Applause
also greeted cvery prediction that the
ban on beer and wine would increase
unrest among tie masses.
Three lrepresentatives: John F.
Fitzgerald, of Poston, and Adolph J.
Sabbath and John W. Rainy, of Chii
eago, all democrats, addressed the
meeting, predicting that it congress
did not modify the .July I law, Presi
(lent W%'ilsoni would do so by proclama
it was at a hearing before the sen
ate judiciary ocimittee that MIr. Gom
pers expressed apprehension over tle
outlook. le told the conlInittee it
w'as his opinion, from a long knowl
edge of the habits and thoughts of the
workers, "that nothing could be (lone
by congress so pIejdic(li ial to the peace
and tran(uility of the masses" as the
absolute law. lie asked that the beer
provision he modified only to permiiit
sale of the beverage wihen containing
not more than 2 3-4 percent of alcohol.
Later', speaking at the capitol meet
ing, t1ho federatlion president said pro
hiib ition w l(li11 affect tie richer and
Poorer classes in a vastly different
way, the laborer being unable to stock
his cellar for future use. It was an
inujust d i scriminat ionl, he protested,
"that the rich, the emiloyers, the bus
miess men, may have their booze at
leisure for their whole life-time guar
anteed, and the right of the worker to
get a glass of beer when he can, do
Ied to him1. "
The working people he asserted,
were not -asking for intoxicants be
cause the honest workman did not
want them, but were only pleading
for "a fair opportunity to live our
whole lives." As lie spoke Mr. Goin
pers held up a sinall American flag,
o which he repeatedly referred as the
symbol of indildual liberty now vio
Although union oflicials previously
had esti mated more than 100,000 work
ers would take part In the protest, tle
crowd did not fill the capitol lplaza.
Among the))m were more than 100 wo
m1lenl of the anti-prolibition League or
ganized in Baltimore and led by Mrs.
E. Rooney of nlifranicisco, who threw
the meeting into a momentary tuniuilt
by mounting the speakers table and
shouting that It would take a wuoman
to "plut across" personal liherly in
the U'nited States.
Washington, .lune 1..-Representa
tive Upshaw. of Georgia, prosted in
the House today against the anti-pro
hibition demonstration onl the capitol
giounds, declaring labor Ieople wverc
hIuttinlg up a hopeless light in endeav
oring to keep light wines and beer oi
the market. The majority of working
men, .Mr. Upshaw contended, believed
