APPLY ESPIONAGE ACT
! TO STRIKING NEGRO
NEW ORLEANS. May 24.—Joe
I Denis, a negro, has been found
guilty in the I'nited States District
Court of violating the espionage
law by urging a strike on the Tex
as A Pacific Railroad, near here,
September 14, 1918. If is stated
that this is the first, conviction of
'ts kind in the I'nited States.
Denis, while employed as fore
man of a section gang, was
charged with interfering with the
movement of troops because he
urged workers to strike to better
conditions. Attorneys for the de
fendant will appeal the case.
The New Orleans Labor Advo
cate says that the responsibility
for the conviction rests with Judge
Foster, who charged the jury to
bring in a verdict of guilty "if it
found the facts bore out the con
tention of the government attor
ney, that the defendant had ham
pered the government in the opera
j tion of railroads."
Invoking the espionage law to
convict the negro appears rather
far-fetched, says this paper, which
declares that "the intent of that
measure, as we understand it, was
for a means of handling German
spies during the war with Ger
To invoke it to convict an ig
| norant negro worker because he
asked his fellow workers to join
I him in a demand for liv ing wages
not only appears to be wholly in
consistent, but inhumane as well.
"We believe the judge, whether
intentional or not. has taken a
step that will stir up considerable
mot" turmoil than he anticipated.
To attempt to deny workers the
right to strike is a decidedly se

REAL TEST FOR
THE 50-50 OF 4LS
<Ry Harry Wood in the Timber
workers' Department of the
I'nion Record of May 31.)
j The lumber manufacturers in
.the Northwest have received an in
crease in the price of lumber of
about $!i per thousand. The em
ployees as yet have not received an
Increase in Wages, Taking this in
crease in lumber on a 50-60 basis,
the employees should get an even
division of this increase. The em
ployers, no doubt, Will claim that
logs and other articles that enter
into the manufacture of lumber
have Increased, so, of course, they
could not split the $9 60-40 with
The increased cost of living for
the employees will offset the in
creased cost of production of the
employer, so It still leaves it a 50
An up-to-date mill cuts 300,000
feet, daily, and has a crew of 300
men, which is a large number of
men for a mill of thii size. This
would be an increase of 19 a day
for each man. Take this on a 50-50
division, it would be $-1.50 per day
for each man. Figure it out for
yourselves. Of course in a mill
that is not up-to-date and uses men
in place of machinery it may not
work out this way, but the 50-50
split in this class of mills would
not be less than $2 per day.
Do you think some of the 4L
employees will get it? Ask some
of the 4L boosters and see how they
feel about it. Possibly some of the
ex-spruce officers will get a raise,
bttt not the men who are doing the
actual work of manufacturing the
lumber. Ask the boss and you
might find out quickly.
There will be an increase in
wages very soon, but it won't be
on a 50-50 basis, and the raise
won't come from the 4L etther. If
it came from the 1L you would wait
several months and it would not
date from the day the employer re
ceived his raise.
If the 1L is a 50-50 organization,
like they claim, you will get this
increase, but your 4L dream will

LAW OF MISSOURI
ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 31. In an
address to the Central Trades and
Labor I'nion. President Wood, of
the Missouri State Federation of
Labor, declared that the compen
sation law passed by the last Leg
islature is the third best, compen
sation law in this country.
The unionist explained that
where an employer is forced to go
to court delayed payment draws 6
per cent interest. This, it is be
lieved, will make court procedure
unattractive to employers. The
waiting period for injured em
ployees is one week, and he secures
this one week's pay if lie is kept
from his employment for six weeks.
The fight for this legislation has
been a long one and its successful
ending has finally placed Missouri
in the front rank of compensation
