WHY THAT LABOR INVESTIGATION

It Should Also Include. Investigation of Crooked Busi

BY N. D. COCHRAN
My interest In the proposed investigation of alleged crooked business
agents is the interest of honest union workingmen and their families.
I have heard from time to time of alleged crookedness on the part of a
few labor leaders, and not all of them -were business agents; but I have met
a lot of leaders and business agents, and I am convinced that the great ma
jority of them are on the square.
I am not convinced, however, that ALL of them are on the sguare.
I believe organized labor in Chicago is especially fortunate in having at
the head of the Chicago Federation of Labor leaders who are on the level
with the workers they represent.
Ordinarily th fierce attacks of newspapers and employers are directed
at the square labor leadersfor the -game'is gallyjpdiscredit the entire
