ALL PARTIES IN HOUSE BOW TO UNION LABOR Not a Dissenting Voto to Sec tion of Anti-Trust Hill Ap proved by Gompcrs. ITS MEANING IX DOUBT Democratic Lenders Sny It Does .Not Exempt Unions From Prosecution. TVASltf.voToN, June 1. The Jlouas adopted to-day b n unanimous vote tha amended Inbot provision of the anti trust bill. This Is the amendment which was agreed to by President Wilson on behalf of the Administration and by Samuel Gompcrs as tho representative of the unions. lly thin Action the Houe went on record ns In favor of the passage of Im portant legislation tho meaning of which Is admittedly shrouded In doubt. Tha labor advocates contend that the amend ment exempts orKiinlzed labor from prose cution under the Sherman anti-trust net. The President nnd his followers deny this. Yet the Administration and Its supporters made no nttempt to insert In the provision language which would removo the doubt and explicitly make labor union answer able for violations uf the nntl-trust law. To-day's vote wns the most conspicuous example Washington has yet hud of tha fear In which CotiKif-ss stands of th.i political power wielded by organized labor. Itepubllcans vied with the Demo crats and Progressives In toting for tha amendment. I'Vitrrntlon omee-rs Vt'nte-Ii. Thero were 207 members of the Hnuio present when the provision came up for vote, Frank E. Monlson nnd other officers of tho Kederallon of Labor wero present In tho galleries. Democratic leaders In debate declared that section 7. the labor provision, does not exempt labor from prosecution under tho anti-trust laws. Republicans Insisted there wns doubt on this score. "Ten or twelve years from now we may still be wondering what this provision means, and we will not know how far It goes In exempting Inbor from prosecution until. It has been proved In the courts," said Representative Murdoch. Tho House by a voto of 105 to (IP refused to adopt a straight out exemption clause offered as nn amendment by Repre sentative. Thomas of Kentucky, Representative Webb of North Caro lina, chairman of the House Judiciary Committer, refused to accept the Thomas amendment nnd all other substitutes on tho ground thut the labor provision had been submitted to union lenders and had been approved by them. The burden of Mr. Webb's talk that us labor was satis fied and the Congress traders were con vinced that the unions wero not put beyond the pale of the law, the provision would have to be adopted as It was offered, flection 7 as originally reported read: The Orliclnnl I.niiKnnue. "That nothing contained In the nntl trust laws shall be construed to forbid the exlstenre and operation of fraternal, labor, consumers, agricultural or horticultural organizations, orders or associations In stituted for the purposu of mutual help nnd not having capital stock or conducted for profit, or to forbid or restrain Indi vidual members of such organizations, orders or associations from carrying out the legitimate objects thereof." To this section with the consent of President Wilson and the approval of Mr. Gompers was added the following: "Nor shall nny such organizations, or ders, associations or the members thereof be held or construed to be Illegal com binations or conspiracies In restraint of trade." Representative Lewis of Maryland (Democrat) one of the leaders of the labor group In the House, took tho stand I that tho unions had achieved u great vic tory. "I know thero Is some misapprehen sion nbout It," said Mr. Lewis ".Some honest people nre Inclined to think that this section may mean a specie of class legislation. They make tho error of treat ing labor as u commodity, n natural error, perhaps, when the subject Is given super ficial thought. I.nlmr .Not 1'roprrtr. "Under our Institutions labor can never becoino. property either before the court or before the Legislature. Under our Con stitution property In human beings bus forever ceased, but a barrel of oil Is not only a commodity In tho market. It Is a commodity before the courts and before tho Legislature Its legal attribute Is property and the leading attribute of the worklngman Is citizenship. A different process of sociology and Justice apply to these two subject matters when they are before Congress or the courts." Section 7 also contains provision that the ontl-truU laws rtinll not apply to agreements among railroads that receive tho sanction of the Interstate Commcrto Commission. Section S of the bill, prohibiting mergers of corporation that lessen competition nnd forbidding the formation of holding eompanles under penalty of tine nnd Im prisonment, was pnsjed by tho House Just as It was reported. The House then proceeded to the con f (deration of suction !', which Is aimed nt Interlocking directorates. Debate on this w"a continued Into the night session, wnich which was held In the hope that suincient progress would be made to enable tho House to complete consideration of the bill by to-morrow night nt the latest. President Wilson does not consider that In agreeing to the labor amendments to the Clayton bill he has given labor unions blanket exemption from the opera tion of the Hherman nntl-trust law. In talking this morning with callers I tic President explained that all that sectloi 7 of tho Clayton bill ineati3 In Its amended form Is that labor organizations as such are not Illegal bodies. f-ectlon 8, the President maintained, di.es not glvo Inbor any more a-tua! rights than It had under tho original Hherman law. He dcclured this sec .Ion merely specltles what acts labor can do under the limitations of the law. In other words, according to the PreHlde.it, if lubor unions under the proposed Clayton law trnnbitrrsH tho law they will bo iUii'i to prosecution.

Another amendment to the canal tolls repeal bill was offered to-day.

BANKERS TO PROTEST OH WILLIAMS ORDER Will Try to Got Modification of Hulingr at Washington Meeting To-night. MAKES MUCH EXTRA WORK Comptroller Asks for Smallest Details of Business Done in June. Wasiunoton, June 1. A convention of representative! of banks and clearing houses of leadlnt cities of the Kaat. South and middle West will bo held In Washing ton to-morrow night to consider an order made by John Skelton Williams, Comp troller of the Treasury. Tho Invitation was If sued by the Ilaltlmore Clearing House. For several days bankers all over the country have been complaining of the new order, which requires reports under oath from national banks on a variety of de tails of their dally business never before called for by any Comptroller. Honkers say that these dally reports, which are re quired lo be mado during June, will lm poio a tremendous amount of labor nnd require additional help at considerable ex pense. It Is assumed that the Justification for demanding these reports Is the belief that they will be useful In connection with the organization of new Federal reserve boards. Two Dally Statements ltrqnlrrel. Hankers were notified last woek that they would be expected to return dally two statements, aworn to In each ease, either by the president or cashier of the bank roportlr.g, showing the dally busi ness of the bank. These reports are called for in great detail. Kach bank Is required to make a re turn by States of the amount of specie, national bank notes and United States Treasury notes received from outside cor respondents. In nddltlon they must re turn reports of such rccolpts from Canada and Mexico separately und then under an other hendlng for all foreign customs. Detnllexl reports by States lire required to bo mado of thp amsunt of the checks and drafts on local banks and drawees, showing the number of Items and tho amount of each check, and llko reports on checks and drafts rtlclvod from outside cities and towns. Another detailed report Is required on foreign exchnnnH outside of the United States, a detailed report on checks and drafts drawn each day by the reporting bank, as well ns of sblpmenU by express or otherwise, showing separ ately the amount of shipments of specie nnd gold and of Treasury notes and bank notes. These reports are requlrod to be made by Statca. MiKKrstleina by Comptroller. At the top of each of the forms sent out by Comptroller Williams uro the fol lowing suggestions : "These data ure desired primarily for the benent of the twelve Federal reserve banks now In process of organization In their respective districts. To compile and furnish this Information will throw some additional work on your clerical force, but It Is not believed that this work will be heavy or burdensome on those banks where the most approved systems of ac counting and the most modern methods are now In operation." The blank form curries the statement that tho Comptroller expects a "prompt and complete compliance with the re quest." The following clearing bouses have been Invited to participate by sending delegutes to the conference: Iloston, New York, 1'lillndclphld, Richmond, . Washington, Pittsburg. Cincinnati, Chicago, Atlanta, Jersey City and Cleveland. The object of the conference Is to bring about If possible a modlllctlon of tho order. BANKS HERE TO COMPLY. .ir York Institutions Will Not .loin In Pratrat Merlin. The New York national banks and the New York Clearing Houmi Association will not send representatives to Washing ton to take part In the meeting to be held nt tho Hotel Wlllard to-day to pio test against the request of John Skelton Williams, Comptroller of the Currency, for a dally statement from all national banks. Tho attitude of the New Yorlc banks and the local clearing house Is neutral. In his communication to tho banks Mr. Will iams said that lie wished the figures for the use of the twelve Fe-deral reserve banks now In process of organization. As the- New York banks have decided to give their heartiest cooperation to the working out of the Federal reserve oct they do not wish to do anything which might be con strued as a hindrance to the operation of the rVstem. They therefore have signified their Intention of complying with Mr. Will iams's wishes In spite of the enormous burden It will entail. It Is also felt that protest against this request or any other of the- edicts of the present Administration In financial mat ters would bo likely to carry more weight In Washington If New York banks were not In any way associated with it, Wood Moves for Iletter tWr Ice.
