S. Broacfied in Anonymous Attacks WORKERS MUST HELP STAMP OUT k SECRET ORGANIZATION, WOLL SAYS l'K , Lieutenant of Gompers Denounces Followers of "Fiery Cross" as Enemies of American Ideals and Fomenters of Class Feclirtfl and Discord ME Ku Klux Klan, Inc., while pumping the virus of racial and religious prejudice throughout tho Nation, makes use of poisonous propaganda ty against the Jews. V' Evidence of these whispered or outspoken maledictions can bo found P 'in the Searchlight, the Atlanti publication which has on its mailing lists V, a multitudo of Grand Goblins, King Klcagles and other functionaries of f the order. ? Just ns the Klansmcn mask their identities behind hoods and gowns k does tho order shroud its anti-Semitic attitude behind anonymous signa ?' tures in "contributions" to the Searchlight, which is mailed to all the I' States in which tho "Invisible Empire" has gained a foothold. P One of the vicious attacks made on tho Jewish people is that agitators t of that race are plotting, to creato a war between the whites and the Negroes, to destroy the American Government. The Jews now, the allegations go on, are interested in overthrowing Christian Russia and, through the Third Internationale at Moscow, are working to destroy all the Gentile Governments of the world. With this object in view, the allegations continue, Jews are boring their way into every Government on earth except the Governments of China and Japan. Another aspect of the Klan's activities, its relation to labor, is attract- ing attention and condemnation. Workers in some sections of the country havo been threatened with bodily injury for insisting on the maintenance of wage scales. f The Negroes also receive a full share of Klannish attention. Tho 'jC attitude of the Klan overlords toward nil men but those eligible for 5 "naturalization" under the "Emperor" is flamboyantly set forth by tho "Imperial Chaplain" of the order. By manipulating hatred, bigotry and intolerance while professing "100 per cent Americanism" the Klan's kluckers of "Imperial," "Grand" and "Kingly" degree are busily engaged in extending the frontiers of the '(Invisible Empire." '''The text of the Klan oaths and the flowery language of its "Kloran" show that tho leaders of Kluxism have established an "Emperor" and an "Imperial Palace" in a Nation which has thrivqd mightily with a President and a White House. Ui CLOAK OF ANONYMITY USED BY KLAN IN SPREADING HATRED WOLUS WARNING TO LABOR Washington, Sept. 10. Warning to organized lnbor against tho conduct of tho.Ku Klux Klan and its antagonism to trade unionism was issued today by Matthew Woll, vico president of the American Federation of Labor and close nssoclato of Samuel Gompers in. deter mining labor policies. Mr. Woll called upon the Federal Government'' to make a thorough investigation of Kil Kluxism and its operations. His statement reads: , ' ' "Ku Kluxism as preached by its self-styled Emperor and ns prac ticed by his followers is a menace to Amcrican''freedom. The very title of tho principal official shows its un-Atnericanism. There is no room for any Emperor in" America.. "I am satisfied that it would be impossible to find a trade unionist who belongs to tho Ku Klux Klan. Trade unions stand for democracy; the Ku Klux Klan stands for a sneaking, cowardly autocracy, working in the dark, striking under cover, making ono pretense hero and another somewhere else. "The conduct of the Ku Klux Klan in the Northwest should be sufficient to warn every labor man of what the spread of this Klanish ncss may mean. In that great section tho Klan has been bitterly hostile to trade unionism, and I have no doubt will be, when oppor tunity offers, just as' bitterly hostile elsewhere. "In portions of the South tho Klan has been driving Negroes to work, regardless of wages and conditions. It is an outrageous institu tion, abhorrent to every American principle. In tho Klan there is a vicious principle swathed in a mass of ritualist buncombe. It3 greatest attraction is for tho credulous, the superstitious, the vain and the foolish. - "Tho United States Government, through proper agencies, should investigate thoroughly the whole range of Ku Klux operations. There is no room for an Invisible Empire in a democracy, and I am satisfied that the whole voice of trade unionism demands its eradication." Other lnbor leaders indorse the statement of Mr. Woll, among them Thomas Flaherty, of the National Federation of Postofflcc Clerks. Scnti'Final Matcho.S'in National Tennis Today '- Court--' 2:30 P.

Public opinion in England, so far as. it has found expression, is virtually solid In support of the Prime Minister in Ids contention thnt all the advance, possible toward peace hnve been mado by Great Britain nnd thnt the Govern ment cannot go further to meet the Irish republican aspirations. Hopo for Irish Plebiscite There wns hope that Do Valcra would ask his people for a new mandate, and, that a plebiscite in Ireland would result In favor of the acceptance of Dominion, homo rule, but even the Irish Nation alists, according to expressions from them received here in Dublin, believe now thnt the result would be contrary to English expectation. It is pointed out that Lloyd George's -eply to De Valcra left nn opening for the continuation of the discussions after the Cabinet had decided what should' be done, but the preponderance of opin ion here is thnt there can be no further concessions by England. The Govern? inent, it is thought, may therefore de cide upon n general election to obtain an indorsement of its policy fronv the public. It was made plain by the Prime Min ister that he could not meet the Sinn Fein delegates if the claim of Irish In dependence mid sovereignty were In--isted unon.
