r*~ *&•. JOHNPJREY Addressed Five Hundred Workingmen and Women Saturday Night, on La bor's Non-Partisan Politi cal Campaign. A crowd of about $ve hundred working: men and women gathered in front of the court house last Satur day night and listened to John P. Frey, editor of the International Molders' Journal, deliver his address on labor's non-partisan political cam paign as inaugurated by the Ameri can Federation of Labor. The meeting was presided over by Stanley Ogg, president of the Co operative Trades and Labor Council, who presented Mr. Frey in a splendid manner. When Frey arose he stated that he hardly knew how to address the gath ering since the ladies have a vote, and then said he would address all as citizens. Mr. Frey immediately launched into his discussion of the non-partisan campaign of the American Federation of Labor, and in the early part of his address discussed at some length the rocent steel strike and the attitude taken by the governor and other of ficials of Pennsylvania towards the steel workers, denying them the privi-! ilege of holding meetings in their own halls. He said that the steel strikers 'were debarred from holding meetings in their own state of Pennsylvania, and were compelled to come over into Ohio to hold their meetings. He also stated that we wanted a governor of a state who will allow working men to meet. This privilege was granted to them by the governor of Ohio. He said that neither party has a clean sheet for legislation, but there are men in each party who have done things for labor and these men should not be forgotten by labor. In his re marks he said that he has been fre quently asked why the American Fed eration has not organized a political party. His answer to this was that there are too many classes in the ranks of labor, and that the A. F. of L. believes it unwise to organize on class lines. In 1906 the non-partisan political campaign was started by the Federa tion, and it gave the records of men in congress who voted against labor legislation. In this campaign out of ten men who voted against the labor legislation, seven were defeated, and the seven men elected in their places passed the desired legislation. Mr. Frey then took up the work men's compensation law and the man ner in which it is handled in Ohio, which has become the model for sim ilar laws and their administration in other states. While on this subject, Mr. Frey asked his hearers to look into the records of the two men aspir ing to the highest office within the gift of the people and ascertain their attitude towards this beneficent law. The Allen industrial court law of Kansas was then taken up in detail and opposed by Mr. Frey. The part the American Federation, with its non-partisan movement, is endeavoring to play in the present campaign is to be placed before the people, the records of the candidates so that a fair analysis of the records of these candidates can be made as a guide to the exercise of the right of franchise by every voter. While one of the candidates has an absolutely clean record and stands without one act unfavorable to organized labor, the attitude of the opposition candi date is absolutely opposite. He went into the record of the re publican presidential candidate and stated that while a member of the Ohio legislature he approved of con vict labor. He said that the turning point has come, it is here, when the independent voter has the power in his hand to elect men in office who are friends of the working men and women of this country. He advised that we vote for men on their records instead of the claims of their parties. In voting for parties the working men have voted for men who were our worst enemies. He told the crowd that this is not the kind of a speech that you have been accustomed to hearing. Here tofore speeches have been made by candidates who have lauded their par ties to the skies. He further stajted that the American Federation is call ing to the workers' own responsibil ity in this campaign. Frey called attention to articles in the papers where thousands of emi grants from all over the world are coming to this country. The next president of the United States will say whether this will be a white man's country or a country for Chinamen and Japs. He concluded his address by mak ing a strong appeal to the working men and women to register, and vote for candidates whose records are clean. You are the ones that will be responsible if you don't vote correct ly- mk. K: .r^'^^^y^-Kf Touching upon woman's suffrage, Mr. Frey stated that as far back as 1880 organized labor had favored the franchise for women. He urged every woman to exercise fully her right to franchise after a careful study of the candidates and the principles for which they stand. Never at any time during his ad dress did Mr. Frey mention the name of any candidate, but he held up to his hearers the records of these can didates, '^••''}. %\C»\'.^?-''::*-"' SALE OPENS THURSDAY SEPT. 30th i .*. v -.:! v''«v T^'v -.
