This Is Declaration of Sec
v retary of American Feder
ation of Labor. ,
Binghamton. N. X.. Sept. 4. In his
address at the Labor day celebration
here today, Frank A. Morrison, -secretary
of the American federation of La
bor, said:
"Antagonisssm by nostile associations
of emplovers toward the men of labor
Is a potent argument for the trade
unions. It clearly depicts the struggle
and emphasizes the pressing necessity
of workmen combining for mutual pro
tection. To stunt and retard the growth
of our moyement,, every means which
can be conceived by subtle minds has
been invented. In" an opeif and fair
contest before the bar of public opin
ion, even with an unfair press, the
cause f labor was steadily advanced.
-With the full knowledge of this, those
W 1LII U1C -M . -- o " ,
antagonistic organizations u.
ers, driven with desperation, navmg u
or any form of law, are seeking by va
rious means to destroy tne organiza
tions of labor. To make false and
criminal charges without any founda-
tioa whatever, appears to be their pres
ent mode of warfare.
McNamara "Kidnaping."
"la the 'kidnaping of the McNama
ras, taking them byforce. without com
plying with even the simplest forms
of law, transporting them across the
country, is apparently considered by
the men committing this outrage as
permissible. These employers -associations
do not .hope for a final con
viction of the men charged, their pur
pose being to cast odium on our entire
movement. They apparently are deter
mined -by-fair means er'foul, to strike
union labor. fetal blow. In this, the
present difficulty, the members of la
bor organisations of our country
should, with oae accorcj-esolve to give

THe TrHstaT'Cklef Interest."
"The chief atestIon of interest to the
trusts today is. how they can prevent
their employers from "becoming 'mem
bers of anions, thus minimizing the
possibility of a demand being made
upon thea. for 'an increase in wages
or shorter hours of "labor. The trusts
are employing the ablest men that
money can secure, to perfect plans to
more effectively "bind the workers to
the industry- One of the most plausi
ble, and at the same time the moBt
-trtMnus svstem thai the representatives
jf great corporations are trying to
fasten upon the -workers at the pres
ent time, is the socalled dividend
scheme ia which the employes cannot
msVo sucsestion. either"" as "to wages,
- hours or share of the profits. This
scheme of the trusts to hold their em
ployes is particularly interesting, when
it is known that a roll call of the cor
porations that favor the system will re
veal the facts that they are the cor-
porations and trusts that have abso
lutely refused to permit their employes
to -organize, aye. more, they have
demonstrated their willingness to ex
pend millions of dollars to keep ,their
condition unuer wuiuu uicj j.o.ujl,
the slaves were .helpless to do other
than the bidding of their masters.
The Slavery Question.
"Some will say that there is a dif
ference that the employes of the
trust can quit and look for work else
where, while the slave could not, but I
ask you where can these men secure
other employment, when you take into
consideration the constant Influx of
over 1.000,000 aliens ayear. About
26D,08'men are working for the steel
trust few If any of these men are
today members of a trade union. The
steel trust in the late strike defeated
tile union. The influx of aliens con
stantly coming to our shores to secure
employment at any price.because they
must live, is used as a club by the
trusts to prevent men from quitting
work for fear that they cannot secure
employment elsewhere..""
Chesterfield Courthouse, Va.. Sept. 4.
Henry Clay Be&ttie, jr., on the Tartness
stand toaav cateeorically denied that he
took part in or knew anything of the
purchase of the shotgun by his cousin,
Paul Beattie. with which his wife "was
killed. He likewise flatly contradicted
almost the entire testimony of his
cousin, particularly with record to the
alleged confession in which Henry is sup
posed to have said to Paul "I wish I
had not done it."
Answers Readily.
- Tightly clenching a handkerchief with
which he nervously rubbed his face, the
prisoner rested his head .. on one hand
and half reclinincr in the arm chair,
faced the jury. His answers were quick
and decisive and he showed an apt
memory in relating the details of the
manner in which the alleged highwayman
approached his machine, and intending to
shoot at the accused, murdered his wife,
who sat beside him.
Ne Chaage in Story.
It was the satne story, .identical even
ia its phraseology with that which the
accused told to the coroner" although he
admitted more of his relations with

Mexico City, Max., Sept 4. Stoned
and forcibly robbed of 3000 pesos Sun
day by a mob of Maaderistas, In the
principal thoroughfare of the capital, I
Gen. Bernardo Peyes, candidate for the
ppresidency in opposition to Francisco
I. Madero, was forced to abandon an
effort to address bis constituents and
to run the gauntlet of a jeering crowd
upon whom the police had received
orders not to fire except as a last re
sort. All Quiet Today.
There was nothing in the aspect of
i ,itv nrinv ii crlo--
this city today to recall -yesterday's
rioting, except the heavy patrol of
mounted police which moved about the
town at regular intervals. Shutters
were removed from the store windows
at the usual hour this Tnorning nd
everything was reported quiet.
- Genl' Reyes ascribes' the affair to a
prearranged plan ,of certain persons
attached to the department of commu
nications. The general said he had
communicated this information to
president de la Barra, who promised
that he would see that the plan, if such
a one existed, was frustrated.
A proclamation telegraphed by
Francisco. I. Madero from Puebla and
published today, expresses his disap
proval of breaking up of Reyes meet
ing yesterday.
3Iay Are Hurt.
Repeatedly the police charged the
turbulet element Sunday and the rec
ords of the Red Cross, the White Cross
and the commissaries account for 43
wounded-as a" result "of "the day's dis
orders. Most of these were injured
by stones but many show bruises and
gashes made by the sabers of the
mounted police.
The stoning of the aged general was
the climax of a riot that began about
10 oclock in the morning and had not
been entirely quelled late Siinday night '
After its beginning police and, soldiers
patrolled the streets, but because of
the government's desire not to use the
iron hand, the heavily armed horsemen
had but an Intimldatory effect upon
the rabble. t
Plead Faith In Government.
Placing their faith in the word of
the government that equal guarantees
would be given to all parties in the
campaign, and trusting Madero's -words
that he Tvould welcome honest opposi
tion, the backers of -Reyes Inst week,
called an open air meeting for Sun
day. It was announced that Gen. Reyes
would make his initial speech of the
campaign, the site selected being in
front of the $10,000,000 national thea
ter in course of construction.
Early in the morning groups of Ma
deristas began forming in various
parts of the city and threats to inter
fere with the Reyista meeting were
Shortly before 10 oclock the partisans
of Reyes began gathering In Avenida
Juarez and the two elements clashed
near the western end of the Alameda.
Near this turbulent scene Gen. Reyes,
his son, Rodolfo, and a group of party
leaders drove in an automobile. Far
outnumbering his supporters, the Ma
deristas crowded about his machine,
making difficult farther progress.
Stones Throfvn at Reyes.
Stepping from the car the general
rebuked the mob for it conduct, but
his words provoked louder jeers, sup
plemented by a rain of stones and oth
er missiles. The automobile was
abandoned. Its occupants walked the
length of the Alameda to the center
of the disturbance, a distance of four
blocks, the rowdies following and
throwing stones.
Mounted police who had been trail
ing the crowds, now rode their borses
into the center of the mob. Entering j

and his escort -went to the second

Such was the disorder, however, that
Reyes's escort attempted to dissuade
him from making the effort. The old
man would not be deterred and raised
his hand for silence. Instead the tumult-grew,

the new theater, were hurled at the
white haired military figure. A num-
