Oakland, Cal—Officers of the Cali
fornia State Federation of Labor op
pose the importation of Mexican la
borers for temporary agricultural
employmept, and then have them re
turned when the harvest is over.
"This will mean," the unionists say
"that these workers will have to be
held in peonage to prevent their es
cape and their acceptance of more de
"This plan does not differ from the
scheme advocated by Hawaiian sugar
planters a few years ago—namely, the
right to import Chinese coolies, who
would be returned to China at the ex
piration of a certain period."
Rejected By British Coal
London, England.—In a speech in
the house of commons, Winston
Churchill, chancellor of the exchequer,
blamed coal owners for a continuous
of the British mine lockout. Church
ill attempted to negotiate a settle
ment during the absence of Premier
Baldwin on a vacation, but was block
ed by owners. In the house Churchill
pleaded with the miners to return to
work and make district agreements.
This is what the employers demand.
Premier Baldwin joined Churchill
in stating that the government can not
coerce the owners. The labor mem
mers of the house jeered this state
ment and pointed to coercive methods
against the miners.
The entire trade union movement is
resentful against the government be
cause of its amendment to the min
ers' seven-hour law, at the request of
coal owners. The- act now permits
eight-hour agreements. The enforce
ment of poor laws, for centuries in
charge of local authorities, has been
taken o^er by the minister of health.
The people pay poor taxes but in sev
eral areas have no voice in the dis
tribution of same.
These and other aids to the coal
pwners make it difficult for the gov
ernment to convince trade unionists
&nd sympathizers that a neutral atti
tude is maintained.
