THtJ SUN. TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 19l4.
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.

of tho new dreadnoughts, authorized un
der tho navy appropriation bill, nt a

At present tho New York navy ynrd

tho work should go to the New York ynrd
tho Senate voted 41 to 13 fiirittnt tin

for tho building of the largest battle-

The Secretary of the Navy had asked
that the navnl appropriation bill bo passed

One Item In tho navy bill provides for
nn Increase In the number of chaplains
for the navy.
Senator Warren remarked that the
amendment for the Incrense In the num

creasing the number of spiritual udvlsers,
but was opposed to giving the chaplain
a rank in tho navy equal to that of the

The Senate leaders, after a careful

The ln3lcnlons ar that the repeal bill
will pass by n imijoil'y of s.xtten, but
that It will be amended, liven advocates
of the bill predict that the Simmons
amendment or somethlni; like It will be
adopted.
This amendment declnrcs that the
United States In repealing the tolls ex
emption Taw yields no rlKht or prlvlbKe
enjoyed under existing treaties. The
amendment does not bo fnr enough In the
opinion of many Senators und It Is pre
dicted that It will probably be broadened
to provide for arbitration of tho questions
raised In the construction of thy Hay
I'auncefote truaty
Threo spctches were made to-day on
tolls question Senator Colt of Ithode
Island, a Hi publican, declared In favor of
repeal ami Stnator Myers of Montana, u
Democrat, also put himself on record In
favor of repeal In opposition to the attl
tuile asiumed by hlsi colleaguo. .Senator
Walsh. Stnator Catron of New Mex.co
spokn In exposition to repeal.
Senator Colt Insisted that the t'nltecl
States would stand discredited In the eyes
ot tin- world if this Uovernment failed to
repeal the exemption taw. He declared
that the Ilay-rauncefote treaty committed
this country to tho equal treatment of the
vessels of all nations. Including those ot
the United States, In regard to passage
through the canal.
Senator Catron Insisted that the Presi
dent had sought to Influence the acts of
Congress by suggesting that there wero
certain delicate International questions
that made It necessary for Congress to
receilo from the position It nnd heretofore
taken on the tolls question.
"So far as I have been able to discover
there are no matters of great delicacy and
nearer consequence dependent upon tho re
peal of the free tolls provision," said
Snator Catron.
Another amendment to the canal tolls
repeal bill was offered to-day. Senator
I'ittman of Nevada, a Democrat, whose
attitude on the question has ben some
what In doubt, presented un amendment
which would give the President the right
to reduce tho rate of tolls to be char?ed
on Amu lean coastwise vess-.ds or to ex
empt them entirely from tolls In hi dis
cretion at any time when It might
appear necessary to prevent discrimina

This was construed to mean that

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

most of the early payments havo been
small, ns naturally those having to make
payments running up Into the thousands
will wait until the end of the month.
