BUILDERS LAY RED ACTIVITIES TO UNION MEN Opposition to Immigration Is Plot to Force Higher Wage, Charge. OFFICERS ARE RETAINED Rather startling, statements marked .the debate on the association's poli cies toward immigration and labor legislation at yesterday’s session of the ninth annual convention of the National Builders’ Exchanges in the assembly room of the Claypool hotel. During the discussion vigorous state ments were made regarding the lack of effort on the part of the United States department of labor to stamp out the reds and radicals in this country and the motive behind the American Fed eration of Labor’s fight for complete sus pension of immigration was estimated in terms of self-interest. One speaker charged that the federation was against immigration because it would continue the prevailing labor shortage and there by enable organized labor to further boost the wage levels in the United States. President Charles William Bernhardt took the position that Immigration should be carefully regulated, but tbt the gates of America should not be closed to those who desired to escape conditions in Eu rope when, on their arrival in the United States, they made n convincing showing as to their character and sincere inten tion of abiding by the laws of this coun try and becoming citizens. The speaker said that the legislative committee of the National Association of Builders’ Exchanges had correspond ence in its possession which indicated the country is not approaching a crisis, but that it already is in one. Although during the debate every shade of opinion from complete exclusion of thg immigrant to liberal regulation was expressed, the convention’s resolution on the question proved to be a conservative compromise favoring the continuation of immigration "under proper regulations." When the convention was called to or der at 10 o’clock this morning the appli cations of the exchanges at Little Rock, Ark., and Warren, 0., met with favorable action. The annual report of the board of control was received and filed and V. R. Gould of Omaha, chairman of the la bor committee, reported that on account, of the unsettled conditions afid due to the fact that the employer interests were being organized to give the subject direct and inclusive attention, the labo. - committee had been Inactive during the year. 4 William F. Chew of Baltimore pre sented the report of the legislative com mittee and it was in connection with this report that the debate on immigra tion developed. Mr. Chew presented for consideration of the convention a resume of three pro posed federal laws which are being backed by several national organizations. One of these would force labor organ izations to incorporate so that they could sue and be sued and thereby es tablish some legal responsibilttes where unions fail to live up to their contracts and agreements or cause damage through unwarranted strikes. Another proposed measure would make unwarranted strikes illegal, and the third .would outlaw strikes of government employes. That the legislative committee for i920 might have the expression of sentiment -of the convention to guide the commit tee’s efforts the convention voted its ap-, proval' of these proposed measures..' Just before the noon adjournment Max Baumann of New York reported as chairman of the nominating committee saying that in the committee's best judg ment it would be wise to re-elect the present officials. He said these officials had made a creditable showing under the extraordinary conditions in 1910; that they were familiar with the peculi arly difficult phases of many of the post-war problems, and that there was every reason to believe they could serve the association better than anew Ret of officers, however efficient and willing the new officials might be. The recommendation was enthusiasti cally received by the convention and ac cepted without a dissenting vote, the -secretary of the convention being In structed to cast the unanimous ballot for the following officials: Charles William Bernhardt, president, Atlanta, Ga. C. A. Dube], Sioux City, la., first vice president. William F. Chew, Baltimore, Md., sec ond vice president. B. M. Freeman, Columbus, 0., treas urer.

But we can not put on a third car on the Lexing ton line now and it could not be operated under existing track conditions If we did have It. But we are not letting the matter drag.” He produced letters to prove the good faith of the car company.

The committee estimates tbe cost of the entire project at $10,000,0b0. The cost of the land alone is estimated at $4,750,000. It proposes the purchase of two city blocks, between Vermont and North streets and Pennsylvania and Meridian, erecting a building on one block and re nting a plaza on the block south of the Memorial to the Federal building. In the block between North street and St. Clair street, on which is located the state blind school at St. Clair park, it proposes the creation in the future of another addition to the city plaza. The proposed memorial building would house the national headquarters of the American Legion, the national headquar ters of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Woman's Relief corps, the Spanlsh- American War Veterans and tiny other organization of world war veterans. It would require several years to com plete <he project. It is proposed that the cit/ and county provide money to pur chase the site and that the state provide the money for the building.

My father lived to be ninety years old,” explained Rufenbarger. “How old are you?" the court inter rupted. "I'm 60” "Humph, then seventy-five gallons would last you until you were 90, if you drank it at the rate of about two gallons and a half a year, wouldn't It? How much are you worth?” questioned Judge An derson. Rufenberger finally stated he was the owner of an eighty-acre farm, but it was assessed for more than it was worth.
