FOUGHT BT WILSON exemption op labor unions AND FARMERS FROM TRUST LAWS PLANNED. IS AWKWARD FOR PRESIDENT if Paragraph la Inserted in Anti-Mo nopoly Measure Consistency Would Require That He Veto the Entire Legislation. By GEORGE CLINTON. Washington—It is possible that President Wilson may be obliged to use his personal influence to prevent his pertly In congress from inserting in tffle of th*j anti-trust bills a para graph whltfli may cause trouble. The president it is known is opposed to uny legislation which will exempt cer tain organizations from prosecution under the auti-trust lawa, but It is be lieved that the majority in congress is preparing to insert just such a provi sion into pending legislation and Mr. NV ilson. it Is said, wants to stop it. It is the intention of these Demo crats. who probably can dominate the house, to secure the insertion in one of the anti-trust laws of a provision which shall exempt from prosecution labor unions and farmers’ organiza tions. It is of course the Intention of the Democrats to make some excep tions. The organizations of the kind named of course can be prosecuted if they do certain things, but they first are not to be prosecuted for entering into any combination or agreement having in view an increase of wages, a shortening of hours, a bettering of !.he conditions of labor, or. and most >mportnnt, “for any i\ct done In fur therance thereof that is not in itself unlawful.” As for the farmers' or ganizations, it is intended to exempt them from prosecution when they co operate In an effort to obtain and ; maintain a fair and reasonable price for their products Fear It Will Be Abused. On the face of things this leglsta | tlon may look fair and square. Per haps It is, for many of the legislators | and thousands of their constituents I are coming to the belief that labor and the furmer should be put into classes ! by themselves and should b<- helped I by legislation which would be perhaps ! unconstitutional if enacted in favor of i any other classes, or divisions if you will, of tho citizenship of the United States. The objections which will be entered to the legislation rest upon what^ some men say ip the certainty that it will be abused and that if it be^bmes if part of the law of me land labor unions will be allowed to do what they will unchecked, and that the farmer will be allowed to raise prices to the sky provided he can do it through co-operation with his fei I lows. Last year the Democrats did what they could to exempt labor and the farmer from prosecution under the Sherman anti-trust law. In the sundry civil bill which was passed ,one year ago this month there was Inserted n provision forbidding thnt any of the money voted for the use of the attor ney general’s office In prosecuting the trusts should be used to prosecute la bor unions and farmers' organizations engaged In such lines of endeavor as those drawn above. Mr. Taft vetoed this blll*as one of the last acts of his administration. In March last the Democrats re passed the sundry civil bill in virtual ly the form in which it was sent to Mr Taft. President Wilson approved i the' measure, but attached to It a ' memorandum “condemning the prln ! ciple of special exemption of organ! ! zations of farmers or laboring men 1 from prosecution for maintaining j combinations in restraint of trade and i commerce." Would Tie McReynolds’ Hands. After President Wilson had signed the sundry civil bill, including the ex J ernptlon clauses Attorney General j Me Reynolds started a prosecution of I labor, unionists In West Virginia. He | was not allowed to use any of the sundry civil bill money In the ease. 1 but there were funds at his disposal which enabled him to i^cure Indict 1 merits, carry the matter Into court | and start the trials This was pointed | to by the administration as showing i that It had no intention of exempting : labor anions from the operation of the j Sherman antitrust law. If the Democrats, however, carry j out their present Intention and exempt , the unions and the farmers' organiza tions from prosecution by means of an | actual law of exemption, the hands of | the president and his attorney general will he tied As things are. the Inhi bition lies simply against the use of t certain money to pay for prosecutions of this kind The paragraph of ex emption In one of the anti-trust laws actually will prevent the bringing of any suits against labor unions and farmers’ organizations for acts which on the part of other combinations would be criminal. Some of the Democrats seem to think that if their party shall insist upon legislation of the kind outlined .Mr. Wilson will veto It. oven if in so doing he must veto all of the anti trust elgislatlon which goes with It. If the matter is put up to the presi dent ho will be troubled to sign the bill containing It and be consistent with his utterances of last March, when he virtually rebuked his party for doing what it did through the me dium of the sundry civil bill. Conversion Fight Due. Shortly congress and the ranks or the militant consei vattonlsta of the United States will be arrayed against each other on the subject of control of the water power In the navigable streams, la Uncle Sam to have control over water power leases, or is It to be vested hereafter in the legislatures of the individual states? The majority in congress be lieves in states rights. The conserve tionlsts say that if the matter be turned ever entirely to the states, mo nopoly will rejoice and the public will be robbed. In December there was a National Conservation congress held in Wash ington. It was supposed to be com l»osed of delegates devoted entirely to the plan to keep the command of wa ter power sites in the hands of Uncle Sam. However, there were a good many delegates present who it was charged were representatives of the water power people, and who were present for the sole purpose of trying to thwart conservation under federal authority. There was a hot controversy in the conservation congress, but finally a resolution introduced by Gifford Pin chot pledging the congress to the prin ciple that the people would draw a revenue from their heritages was put through by an almost unanimous vote. It was evident that those who were op posed to the plan did not care to put themselves on recori^ae voting against something which if put Into effect seemingly will give the entire peopl^p a return for the power site rights which the government may grant. Water Power Lease Bill. There is today before congress a bill w hicli Is intended to give to the indi vidual states the right to lease water power sites on navigable Btreame with in their borders. Uncle Sum is sup posed to have control of navigable streams and therefore the conserva tionists say that giving the states pow er to govern in the matter is inking away from the federal government a constitutional right and that the result will be, stuto legislatures being more ensily reached than a national leglsla tore, that monopoly will get hold of tlie water power sites and tin; people will get no return for that which is inherltently theirs Within six months the United States Supreme court hns handed down two decisions which prove as conclusively as Supreme court decisions can that the United States has complete con ; trol of the power in navigable streams and that it can exact payment for Its use. One case came out of Mlchlgun and the other out of Utah. Recently intimations have been printed that the president of the Unit ed States is in entire sympathy with the Democrats in congress who want to give water power to corporations without payment to the whole people for its use. The president is a states rights man, but It is not believed he has expressed himself as in fuvor of such a plun. The IMnchot men say the report almost unquestionably is being spread in order to make the peo pie of the country believe that a man in whom they have confidence thinks the scheme as outlined by the majority in congress is righteous. Conservationists on Guard. The conservationists in Washington are wjikerul to the situation. They know everything that is going on and it is known that If congress attempts to do what a subcommittee apparently intends that it shall do. there will bn another fight in the center of a field with as much interented onlookers as there were when Mr. Ptnchot and his followers attacked Mr. fiallfnger and his followers. The Democrats say that they are progressive and are conservationists. The followers of the school of Gifford IMnchot deny that the Democrats are telling the truth. The conservationists say th.it to put Mie water site matter In the hands <^f the states is to throw away money and to make monopoly ( certain, if water power legislation in the form in which the majority In con gross seem to want to enact It is put through and signed by the president, it is declared by the conservationists that one pledge in the Democratic plat form will have been shattered, that monopoly will rejoice and that the peo pie of tin Unite)] States will have their pockets picked. On the other band the Democrats say that the states can be depended upon to safeguard their own rights' and that there is no reason why the federal government should enter into the confines of any one state to regu late the affairs of its people In the wa ter power matter Maintaining Modern Hotel.
