Thinks People Should Know What He Is Up Against Neither Roads Nor , Unions Should Have Power to Distress Public as They Are Doing. By DAVID LAWRENCE (Special Dispatch to Tin? Reformer.). 'Copyright 1!)22. WASHINGTON, August 17. Presi dent Harding means to place squarely before the country the dangers of na tional domination of basic industries by labor unions. Irres-eetive of whether the meeting in New York between the rail executives and the brotherhood chiefs who represent the shopmen brings to an end the rail strike, the President feels that the issues involved in the present crisis are too big to be suddenly shelved with the abrupt termination of the strike. Mr. Hardinjj has not made up his mind to ask for specific legislation at this time, but he feels that congress and the country should know the details of the present controversy so as to have the way open for thorough consideration of the whole problem. The President's narrative of what has happened will also serve a useful purpose as a basis for any action that may have to be taken if the present emergency should grow so serious as to require instant seizure of the railroads, without wait ing for congressional authority. Some of the jl'resident's friends have told him thatj he -owes the American eopIe a frank, explanation of what he has tried to do and that the 'public should know just where to place the responsi bility. On top of this are considera tions of justice to the President him self as the criticism of his course has grown to such proportions as to make members of congress fearful that it would reflect unfavorably on the Re publican party at the polls next Novem ler. Has Disregarded Politics. This phase is merely incidental as Mr. Harding has proceeded along lines that seemed to him expedient from da to day without regard to whether it was politically wise or unwise. Neverthe less. Mr. Harding would be the last to deny that impressions formed by the electorate during the strike period are not unlikely to be developed on the ba sis of such few facts and statements as have been authoritatively issued thus far. The President alone knows the whole story not only of the negotiations that have gone on in an effort to settle the strike but the issues which precede the outbreak and which may be said to have sggravated the labor situation and brought it to a climax in the shopmen's strike. Mr. Harding could tell an, interesting story if he chose on the moves made bv the railroads to reduce the power and prestige of the United States labor loard and of the corresponding effect which such tactics made upon the strik ers, who saw no more reason for obey ing the labor board than did the rail roads. Too Much Power. But apart from all this is the great est fundamental fact of all which has impressed Mr. Harding as he has seen the crisis grow morrt acute from day to day. ft is the power of the national la bor leaders to subject the country to hardships and the corresponding power of thi railroad managements to conduct themselves in a way .that goads the workers to take desperate measures. Shall national union domination be per mitted, in , such absolute essentials as transportation? Mr. Harding thinks not. While the right to organize and the right to emit work are conceded, the right to abuse these privileges is not conceded. Hence the President believes regulation. 4s-necessary in the public in terest. Ti President still thinks the railroad labor board can be made the agency of protection to all concerned. The personnel of the board today may not be what it should be but that does not mean that the idea is wrong or the plan unsatisfactorj'. In the coal industry a national board and commission analgous to the United States railroad labor board would be recommended. The powers of congress to regulate interstate commerce as pro- Wben you cool off suddenly and when yon sleep in a draft, yon get a Cold.

Corporations engaged in interstate com merce can no longer monopolize produc tion and gouge the public. So, too, Mr. Harding believes labor unions or rail road managements can be made amen able to the public interest through reg ulation. The interstate commerce com mission regulates the income of rail roads, and the labor loard has been in vested by congress with power to regu late the outgo of railroads on the big gest item, namely wages. Penalties are of course necessary to secure obedience to the railroad labor board's decisions and some similar step would be neces sary with respect to the awards of a na tional coal commission. People Can Limit Power. President Harding has had abundant experience in his negotiations with all sides in the coal and rail strikes to come to the conclusion that if the public throvgh its government permits the con tending forces to make war on each other, tho American people will always have to pay the cost of the war in the end. The people have the power through congress to limit the rights of both la bor and capital in the basic commodi ties which arc necessary to life and the "President is seriously considering a re quest that such power w specifically written into regular statutes so a to make n strike or lockout, of coal work ers or railway employes as unwarranted as a strike of policemen.
