"The delegation of the American Federation of Labor which appeared before the platform committee of the Republican party convention in Chicago presented to the convention of the American Federation of Labor in Montreal the labor proposals which it submitted, and analyzed and compared these with the declarations contained in the Republican party platform. The con vention by a unanimous vote adopted and approved that report. The con vention authorized and directed a committee to appear before the Demo cratic national platform committee at San Francisco and to present the iden tical proposals to that committee, with the instruction that a comparison and analysis should be made with the proposals and the declarations of the Dem ocratic party." SECOND INSTALLMENT Labor's Demands: Americanization of those coming from foreign lands, as well as our standards of educa tion and living, are vitally affected by the volume and character of im migration. It is essential that additional legis lation regulating immigration should be enacted, based upon two funda mental propositions, namely, that the flow of immigration must not at any time exceed the nation's ability to as similate and Americanize foreigners coming to our shores, and that at no time shall immigration be permitted when there exists an appreciable de gree of unemployment. Democratic Platform: The plat form is silent on the general sub ject, though in relation to Asiatic immigration it says: The policy of the United States with reference to the non-admis sion of Asiatic immigrants is a true expression of the judgment of our people, and to the several states whose geographical situa tion or internal conditions make this policy and the enforcement of the laws enacted pursuant thereto of particular concern, we pledge our support. Labor's Demands: We demand the observance and enforcement of all the f, deral maximum eight-hour laws and their extension to comprehend all civil departments of government. Democratic Platform: The plat form refers to the passage of the eight-hour law under the Democratic administration and further say<: Laws regulating hours of labor and conditions under which la bor is performed, when passed in recognition of the conditions under which life must be lived to attain the highest development and happiness, are just asser tions of the national interest in the welfare of the people. Labor's Demands: We favor the enactment of a more comprehensive federal compensation law which will embrace all workers who cannot be provided for by state compensation laws, and we demand that workmen's compensation laws be amended to provide more adequately for those incapacitated by industrial accidents or occupational diseases. Democratic Platform: Under this administration was passed the Work ingmen's Compensation Act, the ex tension of which we advocate so as to include laborers engaged in load ing and unloading ships and in inter state commerce.

Democratic Platform: Silent. Labor's Demands: We demand the repeal of the labor provisions of the Cummins-Esch law. Democratic Platform: The Presi dent's recommendation of return to private ownership gave the Republi can majority a full year in which to enact the necessary legislation. The house took six months to formulate its ideas and another six months was consumed by the Republican senate in equally vague debate. As a con sequence the Each-Cummins bill went to the President in the closing hours of congress, and he was forced to a choice between the chaos of a veto and acquiescene in the measure sub mitted, however grave may have been his objections to it. There should be a fair and Com plete test of the law until careful and mature action by the congress may cure its defects and insure a thoroughly effective transportation system under private ownership, without government subsidy at the expense of the taxpayers of the country. Comment: The platform calls at tention to the fact that defects ex ist in the Cummins-Esch law and pledges the Democratic party to their rectification. Inasmuch as the rail roads are now under private owner ship and operation and their em ployes no longer in government em ploy it will be observed that in the third plank hereinbefore quoted the Democratic platform declares that "in private industrial disputes we arc opposed to compulsory arbitra tion as a method plausible in theory but a failure in fact." Labor's Demands: We declare that the congress of the United States should take action to prevent the federal courts from continuing the usurpation of authority in declaring unconstitutional acts passeil by con gress. We further urge that judges of all federal courts shall be elected by the people for terms not exceeding six years. Democratic Platform: Silent. Labor's Demands: We declare our unalterable opposition to any ex ercise of force by the United States in Compelling the Mexican people to meet unwarranted and unjust demands of those Americans whose sole interest is the exploitation of the people and the natural resources of the Mexican nation. Democratic Platform: The United States is the neighbor and friend of the nations of the three Americans.

The administration, remembering always that Mexico is an independ ent nation and that permanent sta bility in her government and her in stitutions could come only from the consent of her own people to a gov ernment of their own making, has been unwilling either to profit by the misfortuntes of the people of Mexico or to enfeeble their future by imposing from the outside a rule upon their temporarily distracted councils. As a consequence order is gradually reappearine,- in Mexico. At no time in many years have Ameri can lives and interests been as safe as they now are; peace reigns along the border and industry is resuming. When the new government of Mex ico shall have given ample proof of its ability permanently to maintain law and order, signified its willing ness to meet its international ob ligations and written upon its statute books just laws under which foreign investors shall have rights as well as duties, that government should re ceive our recognition and sympathetic assistance. Until these proper ex pectations have been met Mexico must realize the propriety of a policy that asserts the right of the United States to demand full protection for its citizens. Comment: We are firmly of the opinion that our republic should not attempt to determine which laws shall be enacted by the people of Mexico and that our government should not constitute itself a censor of the in ternational obligations of Mexico with relation to investors foreign In that country. The splendid spirit manifested in the first two para graphs in the platform correspond entirely with the demand! of labor with regard to Mexico and sets forth a policy of international morality in keeping with the highest and best concepts of Americanism.

DECLARE WAR ON LABOR UNIONS Chambers of Commerce Affili ated Willi ihe I. S. Chamber of Commerce So Voted Prom "Labor," official organ of the Plumb Plan League, published In Washington, I>. C. the following "cheerful" news is taken: Chambers of commerce affiliated with the Chamber of Commerce of the United States have voted to make war on organized labor. The result lof a referendum vote on the plat' form adopted at the Atlantic City convention of the Chamber of Com merce was announced in Washington Friday, July 80, The program fol lows the lines enunciated by Judge Elbert 11. Gary, head of the steel trust, at the close of President Wil son's first industrial conference in October, 1919, when the represen tatives of organized labor withdrew after their proposition for collective bargaining hail been defeated by the negative vote of the employers' group. The so-called open-shop policy is adopted by an overwhelming vote, only four local chambers voting against it out of a total of 1,679 par ticipating in the referendum. If put into effect it means these employers will close their doors to union labor. Another proposition which calls for enactment of a law prohibiting em ployes of public utilities, such as rail roads, packing-house plants, street cars, telephone and telegraph, from striking, was endorsed by a vote of 1,564 to !»7. It seeks to tie all public utility employes to their jobs and would deny the constitutional right of protest in the form of strikes. Judge Gary Endorsed A proposition creating a tribunal by law to adjust industrial disputes, whose decisions would be final and binding, was endorsed by a vote of 1,671 to 100 against it. Only 54 votes were registered against a proposition which seeks to exclude [outside groups or representatives ' from participating in the settlement 'of industrial controversies. This is lan endorsement of Gary's attitude in [refusing to confer with a committee representing the streel strikers. An | other proposition seeks to prohibit municipal, state or national govern mental employes from forming labor unions. Only IK votes were cast against this. It is said to have been the largest referendum vote ever recorded on any subject by the Chamber of Com merce of the United States, between 1,600 and 1,700 local chambers par ticipating. Program Committee The committee that prepared the industrial platform for submission to a referendum vote was composed of William Butterworth, president Deere & Co., Moline, 111.; Frederick ,J. Koster, formerly president of the San Francisco Chamber of Com merce; Max W. Babb, vice-president Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Co., Milwaukee; W. L.

It slid out from under him like a Peterboro canoe from a summer boarder. When General William C. Gorgas, who died recently in England, was handed the problem of freeing the Panama Canal Zone from disease it was the worst yellow fever plague spot in the world with a nice side line of blackwater, ehafrras and typhoid fevers, pernicious anaemia, paludis mo and other cunning little ail ments. One of the first things Gen. Gor gas did was to call for volunteers willing to be inoculated with these diseases for the great physician was compelled to learn what caused the diseases and how to treat them be fore he could drive them out. Out stepped bold Private Jenkins U. S. A. with 15 others and qualified right away as a hero. Those volunteers were real heroes, too, for they agreed to face almost certain death, not in the heat of battle with comrades alongside and a chance to kill on their own accout but in cold blood, on a hospital cot, in horrible agony, with no weapons but a clinical ther mometer and a prayer. It was the kind of a job that took chilled steel courage, nerve, grit, Kameness, valor, bravery, daring, fortitude, gallantry and valiance. And Private Archer Jenkins U. S. A. had 'em. Hut after Private Jen kins had been vigorously bitten by the 57 varieties of mosquitoes and i had been injected with every dis- I ease culture on the list he was re jected. He got an order relieving him from detached duty with the Marine Hos pital service and sending him back to duty with his company which con sisted mainly in lugging a service rifle up and down in front of obso lete machinery and yelling "Sergeant of the guard, post No. 3" which is no way for a hero to talk. Archer Jenkins was a hero but he could not hold the hero's job because he was immune. He could sit all night in 18 inches of jungle water with the air full of miasma and insects and never even contract a habit. There are a lot of would-be-finan cial heroes in this country who are I immune. They have the nerve to I work, they have the courage to earn, ! some even have the guts to save but ! they could not catch an opportunity for safe and profitable investment in a life time of exposure. So while they may get into the hero group picture for a few minutes, sooner or later they are back on the old job walking slow in front of the obso lete machinery. There is an easy way right now to tell whether you are immune or not. If you can earn and will save ami cannot contract financial inde- I pendence through the opportunity of- I fered for safety and profit by Liber ty Bonds at present market prices i and by Government Savings Securi ties. you are immune and pretty soon you'll be raising your voice for the I sergeant of the guard on Post No. 3.
