of Labor Department
Washington. March 8 William B
Wilson, the "baby member" of the
cabinet and head of the new depart-i
ment of labor today summed up in a
fe words the policy that will govern
him In th- discharge of his duties
While apparently he resented the re
port that he wouid be a special plead
er in the cause of labor he acknowl
edged to entertaining strong convlc
i tions on the labor question
It would not be accurate to say
! that I represent organized labor in
I performing mj official duty." he said.
I shall represent the government.
I Of course, however, the point of view
has much to do with such matters."
Probably more interest Is heint; ta
ken in the prosram of the department
'of labor than In any other executive
I department of the government. Ap- I
pointed virtually at the instigation of'
Samuel Qompers, president of the Am
erlcan Federation of Labor, Mr. Wll- j
son. it was feared by those opposed
to union labor methods, would decide
all questions from the viewpoint of
organised labor and that the Amcr
lean Federation of Labor would be
the dominating spirit In the new de
lta rt ment
Friends of Mr. Wilson declare their
confidence in hlsVjudgmenl and fair
ness. They point to his record in
the house on labor legislation and In
slst it always was marked by toler
ance and sound sense.

by Alphonse Madero, one of the de

has called attention to it.
While Madero was opposing I'orfirio

elaborate junta in Washington with
which both the state department and
the department of Justice seemed
powerless to interfere further than
to keep a close scrutiny of all its
members by special agents.
