ORGANIZED fORCES AWAITING ACTION Attitude of Federation of Labor Will be Determined by Action of Present Congress on the Measures Urged-Slgnlflcant Congress Just Held. Washington. March 31. Labor' attitude toward auch law as it consid ers Inimical to the workingman, and toward supreme court decision along the same lines, is set forth In an edi torial In the American . Federatlonlst by Samuel Gompers, president of tho American Federation of Labor. Th article Is based on the recent confer ence held by labor leaders, wherein the supreme court decision in the hat. ters' case was discussed. President Qompers. after saying the conference was one of the most important ami significant ever held by labor, continues: No SMcial Meetings, "it Is not the custom of the Am erican Federation of Labor to call special conferences, but this situation was so grave it demanded some Im mediate action other than could be obtained through the ordinary chan nels of union meetings or annual con vention. "These must' bo regarded only as Initial steps in inaugurating the movement of asserting and using the full power of labor, if necessary, to secure proper relief, recognition and protection of Us natural rights and liberties by our law-making executive and Judicial powers. '.'Labor's protest eonferenne already seems to arouse some apprehension (imong the politicians, who are wont to consider the workers good mater ial for exploitation. Latent Force In Alreyanco. "It will bo well far the lawmakers and the law dispensers to remember that there Is a limit to the patience of the wageworker. Let no one de ceive himself as to the real meaning of the recent conference of labor's forces. "It Is only too true that our or ganizations hs-ive not utilized their full political power, but with the recent decision of the supreme court has come the solemn realization that la bor must actively exert every power If its rights, ns r vital portion of our social and industrial fabric, are to be lecognlzed and safeguarded. "libor halts at this time to respec fully petition Congress for the am endment to the Sherman law which will spf-clllcally exempt labor from a law not Intended to apply to It. It also asks the enactment of Its Injunction bill, Its eight-hour law- and an em ployers' liability law. To Wideli Candidates. "Ijibor proposes to carefully scan the record of every candidate who desires the vote of tho workers for election to any office and they all net-d such votes ami make Its de cision according to such record; but out of Its very patience grows the power of irrevocable decision. "Hy the time the present Congress adjourns there will be recorded by the logic of events a history which will show the attitude of each mem ber toward the measures asked by labor." The record of every Congressman, the editorial concludes, will be sent out to Ills district, and the tight. If nttessiry. will be waged upon him I here. TO PROTI .CT si 1 AM FX.
