Stone Drug Store. Samuel Gompcrs, president of the American Federation or Labor, in an interview granted In Paris, doolared that he favored demauds mfldo by American lnbor for nationalization of tho railroads. Ho feels that tho labor ers aro Justified In demand mode by them, that thoy aro entitled to have a volco In management of tho railroads "Tho railroads must bo brought un- dor suitable control, avallablo by turning tho roads over to tho work ors, 'government and technical ex ports," ho stnted. The labor loader thinks thnt It If- tho logical stop that remains to be taken at this time and that It Is th6 only manner In which tho railroads should bo operated. Ur explained tho great deficits existing today, are duo entirely to mismanage mont under tho McAdoo ndmlnlstrn tlon, Btnttlng thnt tho latter had no technical knowledgo and was not qual ified for tho position. Mr. Gompers stated that tho method of proccduro would bo for tho govern mont to tako ovor tho roads officially then tho administration bo turned over to representatives of labor and the government, together with tho re quired technical men. Ho Xolt ns- surcd that this would avert nny fur- thur trouble and at tho same tlmo that tho roads could bo operated at a profit. Referring to McAdoo ho stated tho lnttor could not bo expected to handle tho railroad properly as ho wns not trained nlong that lino and could not ho' considered competent. Ha felt that it was tho McAdoo administration which brought nbout failure of the government operated railroad. "I will back up tho demandB mndo by tho American Federation of Labor to Insure government ownership of railroads and a volco of labor In op eration of tho lines," ho stated. In this manner only can govornmont owner ship of the roads be given a fair trial, ho held. "Labor Is justified In Its demands. ns tho railroad workers woro never fairly treated in relationship to the road owners." -::o::- Xollco to Water Consumers. Itoginlng Monday morning.
