JURISDICTION ISSUE
IS AN OLD PROBLEM
Cincinnati. "Tlic question of juris
iliction existed with all of its disturb
ing features centuries au,o," writes lidi
tor l'"rcy of the International .Slolders'
Journal, who cjitotcs history to show that
these contentious were problems for
trade unionists of the loiuj ago.
The Joiners' 1,'ild of Hull, knnland, in
I.VJ8, provided in its by-laws "that uoe
carpenter, liouscwridit, or other wriidit
within this townv, shall make any joy
ner worke whatsoever." The Carpen
ters' Kiljl answered this attack liy adopt
ing a law, the same year, which provided
that "no joyncr nor shipwright shall at
any time or times in private or puhlicke
worke and worke appertcyniuK properly
lo the carpenter to worke."
The Cobblers' ild of Hull, in (T,
passed the following law:
"That noe shoemaker, or other per
son or persons, shall use or exercise the
trade of a colder for mendinge of shoes
within this lowne."
"This brief glimpse into the past af
forded by these gild laws," says Editor
b'rey, ''is' sufficient to enable us to real
ize that the problems which our trade
unions contend with today are in many
ways similar to those which troubled the
workers centuries ago. It is one of the
most serious ones which our movement
is forced to contend with today, for
while the jurisdictional dispute of to
day and yesterday may lie adjusted, some
change in methods of production, or the
use of some new material, at once creates
the question of which union shall have
jurisdiction over the work.
"Some enthusiasts, unheeding the his
tory of the past, have advocated an ex
treme industrial form of organization
as a cure. In doing this, however, they
close their eyes to the self- evident fact
that such a form of organization, which,
if it could exist for any length of time,
might minimize the number of smaller
disputes for a while, would in the very
nature of things develop jurisdictional
strife upon a larger scale than ever be
fore, and involve hundreds of thousands
in hitler jurisdictional disputes, where
but hundreds are involved today. There
would be overlapping of industries just
as there are overlapping of trades to
day, and always have been."

WILL CONGRESS PRINT
WALSH PROBE REPORT?
Washington. The report of the com
mission on industrial relations has been
referred to the committee on printing by
the house of representatives.
When Speaker Clark announced the
report was before the house, Congress
man Lewis, chairman of the committee
on labor, moved that 200,000 copies of
the final report and 10,0(10 copies of all
testimony taken be printed. In the final
report is the summing up of the various
groups of the commission.
Following a debate on parliamentary
procedure, the speaker ruled that ac
cording to the rules and practices of the
house the resolution was not privileged.
Xo opposition to printing the report de
veloped at this time, although Congress
man Davis of Texas, took occasion to
say :
"While I am not familiar with your
rules and regulations and the ruts in
which you have run before, I under
stand this to be a very inopportune
time for any man to become parsimon
ious or picayunish over the printing of
a matter that the whole country and the
whole civilized world has got its eyes
on. There are more than -10,000 far
mers in my State who are interested in
the development made in that investiga
tion as to the land monopolies of Texas,
and they are anxious and heart-throbbing
about it, and the Federation of La
bor and the bankers and business men
all through the State have insisted that
this report and these proceedings of this
commission must be nut in such tangible
I shape that they can get the facts and
that the whole matter must be put be
fore them.
"The press paraded the fact that there
were two carloads of it, ami that it ought
to be sent to the junk pile. I want
to notify you right now that if there
is a man from Texas who votes to have
it go to the junk pile, he will meet
me on the stump when he gets back
to Texas in the next campaign."
The committee on printing, which will
make recommendations on the number
of copies to be printed, consists of Con
gressmen liarnhart, Indiana, chairman;
Tavetmer, Illinois, and Kiess, of Penn
sylvania. COMPENSATION LAW VALID
Xew York. Writing in the Bulletin,
issued monthly by the Xew York State
industrial commission, F. Spencer Bald
win, manager of the State compensation
fund, says "the trend of judicial opin
ion throughout the country has been
favorable to the constitutionality of
workmen's compensation acts, and to
the broadest and most liberal construc
tion of their provisions."
lie says the decision of the Xew York
court of appealsjn the Ives case, which
invalidated the first workmen's compen
sation act of 1010, is the only court de
cision on record adverse to the legality
of workmen's compensation legislation.
1 his decision was so strong in the
minds of employers," writes Mr. Bald
win, "that it was not difficult for in
surance brokers to frighten them suc
cessfully by the bug-a-boo of uncon
stitutionality." Since then the court of appeals has
handed down contrary opinions. In the
case of .Marie Jensen versus the South
ern Pacific Railway company, this court
states :
"This subject should be viewed in the
light of modern conditions, not those un
der which the common law doctrines
were developed. With the change in in
dustrial conditions, an opinion has grad
ually developed which almost universal
ly favors a more just and economical

system of providing compensation for
accidental injuries to employes as a sub
stitute for wasteful and protracted dam
age suits, usually unjust in their results
cither to the employer or the employe,
and sometimes to both. Surely it is
competent for the State, in the promo

both the employer and the employe to
yield something toward the establish

plan of compensation is for their mutual

San Francisco. At a lunch given by
Baron Shibusawa, Japanese financier, to
several trade union officials, these work
ers frankly told the Oriental banker that
the opposition to the Japanese in Cali
fornia is not racial, but economic. It
was the fear that the Japanese, through
ignorance, would take their jobs because
they would work cheaper, and thereby
lower the living standards, that Ameri
can wage workers objected to this latest
invasion.
llaron Shibusawa acknowledged that
his country must reckon with organiza
tions of workers, as industry develops in
Japan.
