No. 12 Citizens, Take Notice ! Oe Truth, and Facts About the Present Railroad Strike lgSTThe strike, a unanimous one for all practical pur as called primarily because of discrimintations and be ecaracy in industries has been attacked. pOND One of our reasons, overtime for Sunday and or, was taken from us nearly a year ago--a condition labor for more than a generation-then abolished at the outocratic capital over the advice and protest of ministers age presidents, and over the most earnest protest of labor, S ditions possible under which labor can be worked cn at pro rata rate, allowing labor no protection for Sor recreation. iZRD.-.Another reason: Many of the railroads have ar se aside decisions of the United States Railroad Labor which were not ALL favorable to the companies, and defied lbo Board on many decisions more favorable to the em yet they have not been called in account for such viola We ask for justice to both sides. We have always obeyed the mandates of the Labor Board at last their decisions of wage reductions and some - working conditions have become unreasonable, and To submit to them would be submitting to slow and peonage in the shops. Now that we have resented _rages against us. we have been branded by certain mem the Labor Board as outlaws. We ask you, good citizens. o. the railroad executives not "outlawed" when they have flouted and defied the Board for the past several p0RTH--Democracy in industry, a doctrine endorsed by -ational political party. by the Federated Church Councils ca. and by every public man and loyal woman of America, riaL. It deserves to stand and we are for it. And there are of other good reasons wh.y we are on strike, too numerous soa here and unknown to the public. S citizens of New Orleans, this is your home; it is our * well. It is our desire to keep our home town one among wt in America. We desire to raise our children to be good but we could not do this if we were to submit to the out ,onditions the Labor Board is trying to impose upon us. a God-fearing, law-abiding citizens, trying to better our and conditions of our community. We are not of *it type or class of men that have no respect for their or country as the railroad is now trying to force yea citizenship under armed guards to take our places in tes. We are men that stand for Godliness and manliness fame town, and we feel that you are for the same,-to keep oa clean of abject and immoral characters. Signed. FEDERATED SHOP CRAFTS OF NEW ORLEANS.

Umbach, president of the[ parish board of assessors, declared it would be "foolish" to inaugurate the lot and block plan of assessment at this time. It was through this plan that Commissioner Murphy hoped to obtain funds to complete the 192.3 paving. Commissioner Murphy previously had stated that unless some new plans were adopted the city would be able to complete only one-third of the projects being considered. Mr. Umbach added that he believes the lot and block plan unfair to tax payers because it taxes equally prop erty of greater and less value. Com missioner Murphy and Mr. Umbach will confer next week with the hope of finding some way of financing the paving work. FOUR CANDIDATES QUALIFY. Four candidates have qualified for member of the First Congressional District, to represent the Fifteenth Ward. H. N. Umbach and John F Moynagh. of the Regulars, and enry Acker and John E. Collins, of the New Regulars, filed their papers at Baton Rouge. No Joy Riding on his Side of the Fence COAL cqTIKE!
