Buenos Aires. Argentina. Sept. 4
Unions of laborers connected with
port activities in Buenos Aires and
other ports of Argentina have im
posed upon exporters "their own pri
vate export tax0 as a means of main
taining extensive boycotts now in
force against exporters and shipping
companies, according to a complaint
made by packing house establish
ments here to minister of finance
Salaberry At the present time more
than 100 exporting firms are under
boycott, in addition to the powerful
Mlhanovich company, owner of most
of the river and coastwise shipping
of the country.
A committee representing meat and
hide exporters told the finance min
ister that the dock laborers were re
fusing to load their overseas ship
ments unless the shippers made a con
tribution toward the support of the
union of $7 for each 200 bales of wool
and S3 50 for eaeh 100 casks of tallow
and like products.
The delegation pointed out that
these contributions could be called
"extraofficial export duties." and
that some of them have been de
manded since last May.
Over 00 Vessel, Tied Up.
The boycott of the Mlhanovtch com
pany has held over 200 vessels in port
for six months. Efforts of the gov
ernment to settle the differences be
tween the company 'and the workers
have not met with success. Meantime
the losses to domestic commerce have
been enormous.
Speaking In the chamber of depu
ties, a representative from the prov
ince of Kntre Rlos, largely dependent
upon river transportation, declared
that the apparent object of the marl
time workers was to obtain control
of the country's water transport.
"They publicly announce.' he said,
"that the boycott is not a strike over
wages or hours of labor They talk
about the social movement, especially
that in Germany, and applaud the one
that has taken place in Russia, de
claring that the maritime strike has
nothing less for iu object than the
socialization of the transport ser
vices." During the months of the boycott
the Mlhanovtch company has been
able to return to service a few of its
boats by transferring them to the
Uruguayan or Paraguayan flags.
ish government, which for the pres
ent are minimized or laughed at. The
boycott of Sinn Fein and Catholic
workmen organized at Belfast by the
Orangemen threatens serious results
for the economic life of the country
because the Catholic south is busily
talking reprisals. If the Belfast boy
cott persists, official action by the
Sinn Fein authorities' will follow:
Belfast May Get o Food.
Many of the workers In Belfast
who come under the anti-Catholic
boycott are members of British trade
unions, and these unions are being
appealed to for assistance by their
locked out members. A boycott of the
port of Belfast, excepting for the
transport of foodstnff. is already un
der discussion among labor leaders
in England, who declare they cannot
permit religions or sectional differ
ences In Ireland to deprive their
members of protection.
XTouDie au over tne insn railways
has been getting worse for weeks
past, due to the refusal of railway
men to transport troops or munitions.
This is beginning to spread to Ulster
where local Sinn Felners are wreck
ing trains and kidnaping trainmen,
even in sections where they are in a
small majority, and thus Increasing
the fury of the Orangemen.
Sir Hamar Greenwood, chief secre
tary tor Ireland, the British official
who is responsible to parliament for
the administration of the island,
summed up the situation as follows.
Courts Strut Function.
The "Restoration of Order In Ire
land' bill that has Just passed the
house of commons applies only where
there is disorder The bill is neces
sary, because civilian courts have
failed to function, owing to terror
ism exercised against Jurors and oth
ers in certain areas. The govern
ment's only desire Is to give to those
disturbed parts of Ireland an effi
cient court that will administer the
law fairly and impartially.
"The 71 Sin Fein members for Irish
constituencies refuse to enter the
house of commons, and demand the
secession of the whole of Ireland
from the United Kingdom and setting
up of an independent republic.
"That demand neither this British
government nor any political party In
Great Britain will listen to or con
eider for a moment. Its acceptance
would be fatal to the security of the
empire, and I believe would be fatal
to Ireland.
"There are three fundamentals gov
erning the situation, and they are ac
cepted by every political party In
Great Britain. They are (1) that
Ireland must remain within the em
pire, (2) that questions of defence,
ports and treaties must remain under
the authority of the house of com
mons at fVesmlnster. fl that th si-r
connives of Ulster must not be co
erced. I believe that the majority
of the Irish people would accept these
"The Irish question remains pri
marily a question for Irishmen, and I
am glad the leading business men of
both creeds, and of both Unionist and
Nationalist parties, are now endeav
oring to organize the moderate opin
ion of Ireland.
"There is political trouble in Ire
land of the gravest character, and
the economic ruin of Ireland is threat
ened if the moderate people of that
country do not unite to cave If."
