WARNING SIGNED BY MAYOR Labor Federation Will Proceed Any way and if Possible Organize All of the Negroes in the South Will Better Their Condition. (By Associated Press.) Meridian, Miss., Jan. 11.-F. Cellley of St. Louis, a general organizer of the American Federation of Labor, has been compelled to cease his efforts to organize negro laborers of Meridian into local unions. Cellley began his work here last week organizing whites and negroes into sepa rate unions. When his purpose became know n he was waited upon by a promi nent railroad man, who handed him a written warning to desist. The warning was signed by the mayor and 21 prorni nen't citizens. Cellley was told plainly that if he per sisted in organizing the negroes into labor unions he would be compelled to leave town. He accepted the warning and is now working among the whites only. Referring to the matter today, he said: "I have been traveling in the Southern states 11 weeks, and this is the first time I have run up against anything of this kind. "Tn Memphis, Little Rock, Jonesboro and Vicksburg I organized unions com posed entirely of negroes. They worked as carpenters, barbers, cooks and wait ers. In no place was there any objection of the kind raised. "The American Federation of Labor has strongly indorsed the idea of the negroes being organized. It is our plan to assist the blacks in bettering their condition. So long as the negroes have no combination of any kind they would be forced to accept low wages, with mis erable treatment. This will result in the white men getting the same sort of a deal. "So, to protect ourselves, we want to raise the negro to better conditions. I am not prepared to say just what course I shall pursue, but I believe the negroes ,wll be well organised here before long." IIALE'S NAVY PLANT BILL ENGINEER ~ELVILLE HAS AT LAST GAINED HIS POINT.
