Of late I have been besieged on every halid by business and professional men as to what organized labor Is going to do when the anti-boycott law goes into ef feet November 3, 1903? I will answer that question in rep y to an address issued to the public by the Citizen's Alliance, and which appeared in the local daily papet* of October 28. In the first place, I wish to say that trades unions will thrive on the sour milk which Is being Issued to them by the Cit izens' Alliance. The effect of the anti boycott law and all efforts of the corpora tions (clothed In the beautiful garment of the Citizens' Alliance) to the contrary notwithstanding: hut It must be distinct ly understood that labor unions are main ly composed of good, peaceable, law-abid ing citizens, who are Capable of earning from two dollars and fifty cents to eight dollars per day, and who will remain within the bounds of this law until Its constitutionality has been tested *“ jjj® highest courts of the lapd; and if th final decision goes against them, tn< y w u take their medicine like men. I have failed to see where any good purpose has been shown by the Citizens Alliance; on the contrary, it has- been made very clear by the use of the words "underclass” in their public address and other actions of this. T suppose, upper class, that their motives are impure and are calculated to Widen the breach instead of creating friendly and personal relations between employer and employee. The very first act of this Citizens’ Al liance was to do the "R^d Flag” act, by appealing to the great law-making power of Alabama to help them to tie the hands, seal the mouths, and raise a dagger with which to take the life of the only medium through which labor unions propose to emancipate, elevate and educate the child slaves of this great country, by the pass age of an un-American anti-boycott law. If this alliance ever had any desire to encourage more friendly relations between employer and employe, why are they re sorting to measures of law and extermi nation in a matter purely local and per sonal? If pure motives prompted this move ment, why in the pame of peace and good will did this alliance not call a confer ence of the conservative element of their friends and neighbors who have always remained true, politically and otherwise, and make an effort to correct whatever wrongs that may have been committed? There is an abundance of evidence which tends to showr that wherever differences have existed and the employers have manifested a fair disposition and a giv ing spirit, recognizing fully the rights of employes, it has ever been an easy thing to adjust matters. For instance, in the case of the Clerks’ association, if their demands were ex cessive, and the Merchants’ Exchange had manifested a liberal disposition, no one would have been more ready to acknowl edge the fact than the clerks. But a lit tle stubbornness has prolonged a settle ment. Not satisfied with the effect of their work, this alliance, which presumes to stand for "more friendly personal rela tions,” bring their subjects to task be fore the eyes of the public and with a hot iron brand them in the face as "under class dictators.’’ * Industrial Peace. No one desires industrial peace and prosperity anil will dq more to obtain it than the conservative wage-earner; hut when a peace-making, liberty loving or ganization takes the olive branch of peace in one hand and a glittering sworil in the other, it Is hard to believe that peace Is desired. If peace Is desired, why does no! thiq, noble ‘'alliance'’ try to pour oil on the troubled waters instead of .going to the public with such expressions as only tend to agitate strife, class prejudice, and disturb the peaceable relations which now exist between a large majority of our clt-i izcny and the working classes. "We can have none of this under-class I dictation. The foregoing expression has j never been publicly made use of in a S similar connection in any state, north, east or west, and the fact that the Cltl- ! zens' Alliance has told the truth, stand to Its credit, and the line Is drawnj not between organized labor and unorganized labor, for their interests are common, but between a very small class of Indi viduals and a mighty host ot good citi zens, ‘earnest toilers and hardworking bread-earners. The Obligation. "1 fully agree to discountenance all strikes, boycott* and schemes of perse cutions. I am over twenty-one years of age and am by occupation a -_ ”1 agree to abide by the constitution and by-laws of (he Citizens’ Alliance, and agtee on my honor to keep secret for ever all that may be said or done by the alliance, hr any of its members; also, the personel of Its membership. "Sign---n The above clause in the obligation re futes the obligation that no tight is be ing made on organized labor, and the , fact that each member is required to for ever keep secret all doings and sayings and the personnel of its membership, Is j to any intcdligent person sufficient evi dence of the evil-purposed intent of the organization, which, would, ns a thief in the night, steal the right to set the price on their own commodity, (the muscle), with which the poor working girls at from *2.50 to *4 b*t week, the mine, mill and factory children of this country can purchase bread to support thcmsplves and, perhaps, a widowed mother and or phan babies. Some of the Bad. They speak of the necessity and duties of a good citizenship, and. In another paragraph, advocate a policy which would deprive' the wage earner of the high American privilege of demanding shorter hours and more pay. In order that they may have the time to studv and the means by which to become Intel ligent and good citizens; the right to work or refuse to work for individ uals or corporations, who decline to al low them to fix the price on their labor, the only commodity they have to put upon the market. Further, this policy would not allow workingmen to refuse to deal with their enemies and to deal with their friends. If, for good reasons, wage-workers are not permitted to strike (and it is particularly noticeable that the alliance left the work strike out of the pySlIcatldn of article 2 In their address), for more mpney and In a peaceable, law abiding manner persuade men not to take their places, In the name of reason and justice, what rights have they? A Benefit to Community. Instead of being a curse, as the Cltl INITIAL TRIP IS TO BE MADE TODAY New Train on the L, & N. Runs to Decatur WILL BE VERY CONVENIENT Leaving Birmingham at 6:15 a. m. and Returning in the Afternoon, Busi ness Men Will Benefit By the New Schedule. The new accommodation train on the Louisville and Nashville railroad to De catur will make Its initial trip tomor row. It will leave Birmingham every day except Sunday at 6:15 a. m. and will arrive In Decatur at 9:40 a. m. It will t>e perhaps the most cenvenient accommo dation leaving Birmingham. It will en able coal operators to reach their mines at a reasonable hour and gfve them an opportunity to transact their business and return on the fast mall. Huntsville Connection. The train will make close connection at Decatur with the Memphis and Hunts ville accommodation for Huntsville, and allow three hours to drummers and oth ers to remain In that city and return to Birmingham the same day, the ac commodation leaving Decatur at 3:15 p. m. Commercial travelers desiring to visit Decatur and go west will have two hours and forty minutes in which to call-on the merchants, and make Memphis the same day over the Memphis and Charleston division of the Southern railway. It will also be convenient for citizens who desire to visit the towns hlong the Louisville and Nashville railroad between this city and Decatur, as it will enable them to return the same day. Double Track. Th| double track between Flint and Decatur is complete and already in serv ice, and in a measure is responsible for the inauguration of this new train, which has been long demanded by many peo ple in Birmingham and other towns along the Louisville and Nashville as far as Decatur. zens' Alliance would have the public be lieve. organized labor Is composed of men of good standing and moral worth, and. leaving out their short-comings and over doings, it is a great blessing to any com munity In more ways than one. In the first place, I make the assertion that the good wages received and the great vol ume of money kept in circulation for the last four years by these noble sons of toil, who, I dare say, are so liberal as to spend all their earnings on every pay day, is more than any other one thing responsible for the continued growth and prosperity of the Birmingham district. If any doubt remains, let's cut the wages half in two and see how quick the mer chants will squeal and the number of small business houses that will go to the w^ll. Let us suppose you cut in half the wages of the laborers in this district. Where would the half so taken be dis tributed? Among the merchants, shop keepers, and others engaged In trades or professions in the district? No; not a cent; but It would go to swell the divi dends of the shareholders of the corpor ations who reside in other states of for eign jurisdiction, rendering thereby in vestments in business here less profitable, and bringing grinding poverty and dis tress to those who only create wealth. And, yet. some of these merchants are fighting the clrrkB (but they need have no fears that organized labor will stand by the clerk), and some of them are try ing to vote themselves into the Citizens’ Alliance. Who Pays the Freight? Who, and with wluit class of people are the .electric cars on every line In this district laden from 5 to 9 o’clock in .the morning, and from 5 to 9 o’clock at night? And who tills the vaults of this corpora tion on labor days, show days and dur ing the summer months? If these* under class' ’ people were able to own vehicles or automobiles, who would pay ths freight? Yet, a prominent official of this company (and 1 suppose a member of the Citizens' Alliance) can spend almost one whole day in trying to convert some prominent business man and friend to the underclass against his best interests to his way of thinking. These “underclass" people spend hun dreds of dollars every year for hall rent, printing, etc., and, yet, real estate and job printing establishments are actively engaged In fighting them. There is no perfect labor organization, by any means. And, where Is the church, society or Institution that, has attained perfection? Differences have existed with them and individuals, wrongs have been perpetrated on communities, business men have been annoyed, and the indis creet actions have been taken in very few cases. But, In order to get a redress for their grievances, some few Individuals and the Citizens' Alliance have resorted to means far more damaging to them selves and the community at lurge. The statement has been made by a re liable man, who is in a position to know, that the Citizens’ Alliance proposes to take one organization after another and rid the community of labor unions, and then fill the places of these tollers with a better element. This statement Is borne out by the fact that an attack has already been made on the ClPrks’ asso ciation: and, as a member of the Alli ance would put it. by trying to beguile a prominent business man Into this al liance, "let them strike; we will take care of you and reimburse you for every dollar you lose.” Should they succeed in this undertaking, what has been gained? The men who take the plaaes will soon become members of a labor organization, for. In the language of an eminent divine, while speaking to a vast concourse of labor-day paraders In the city of New York, said: "The great guiding hand of the labor movement is divine, and it will prevail.” The constitution, all the writings and actions of the Citizens’ Alliance furnishes plenty of proof that their fight is for the extermination of these underclass, bread-earning toilers, and some of our merchant friends have found it out; and whm the final test Is made a legion of friends both in and out of labor ranks will rise In their might, and the unholy purpose of the Citizens' Alliance, O, where will it be?
