Washington, June 3. Strikes and
peaceful picketing were sanctioned by
the House yesterday afternoon when the
Webb amendment to the Clayton anti
trust bill was agreed to almost unani
mously, making such acts of strikers
not unlawful under the Sherman law.
Labor's ao-oaJled "bill of rights"
Immunity from injunction rule and le
galizing strikes and secondary boycotts
was considered in the House. Sub
mitted as an amendment to the admin
istration anti trust bill by Chairman
Webb of the judiciary committee, it em
bodied, he said, the ideas of both Presi
dent Wilson and officials of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor.
The amendment was to section 18 of
the Clayton bill, which provides that
nothing in the section which permits
utrikers, peaceful picketing and assem
bling shall be unlawful.
Consideration of the amendment was
sidetracked for some time by the word
"or," which Representative Murdook,
Progressive of Kansas, insisted must be
inserted in the first part of the section
to make it apply to strikers.
Representative Henry of Texas, who
opened the debate to-day, declared sec
tion 18 is "labor's bill of rights." He
said it had been submitted to the presi
dent and to the A. F. of L. and that
both concurred with the judiciary com
mittee that it should be paused.
"This amendment ought to be added
to preserve the rights of labor," said
Mr. Henry, "and to restrain the coiu'ts
from interfering with labor at times of
Chairman Webb said the amended sec
tion would legalize only "secondary boy
cott." Representative Moore of Pennsylvania
declared the House was "terrorized and
bulldozed" yesterday when it voted 20

for taking a referendum strike vote

that the committee of the employes
would issue a statement later in the
day, answering that given out last night
by the railroad managers.
The managers declared the demands of
the employes were not warranted by
business conditions and .that to grant

Thrace and Macedonia Men
aced by Famine Worse
in Albania
London, June 3. The formal ending of
the Balkan war has brought no rest to
tliat long suffering region. Thrace,
Macedonia and Albania are boiling with
racial and religious strife. Stories of
fighting, of persecution and of massacres
are continuous. 1 he changes of boun
daries and of sovereignty which result
ed from the peace treaties, and the
launching of Albania as an autonomous
state, are responsible for the new era
of struggle and butchery. Every power
concerned in the new allotments is try
ing to impress not only its laws, but its
of departing Jews, number between two
and three thousand persons daily, so
that all shipping is crowded and the nor
mal life and business are as much dis
turbed as they were during the day's
of the war. An important factor of the
upheaval is that both the Greeks of
Thrace and the Jews of Salonica were
the most prosperous peoples in those
communities, and their expulsion means
disaster and ruin to both.
Meanwhile Albania is seething. The
Greeks claim 400,000 adherents out of
the 550,000 inhabitants of the southern
portion of the new Albania. These peo
ple of Kpirius known as Kpirotes refuse
allegiance to the Mpret. Fierce fighting
has been going on about Kortiza, and the
rebellion is said to be led by officers from
the (Jreek army. The worst tale of
atrocity which the near East has yielded
in many days came from this field. The
bodies of 200 Albanian Mussulmans were
reported to have been found in a church
at Corda all crucified alive. So many
stories of similar stripe come from preju
diced sources that this has been talten
as a creat exasperation at the worst.
One fact stands above impeachment.
Famine prevails throughout the Italkan
peninsula as it has intermittently for
many years. J he war for civilization
proclaimed by the Balkan league wrought
no cure of the old racial feuds; only
new phases of the same disease.

Trainmen of Road Adopt 7 Per Cent.
Increase Plan.
New Haven, June 3. Announcement
was made here yesterday that the wage
increase plan promulgated by the New
York, New Haven & Hartford railroad,
following the arbitration proceedings in

adopted by the joint committee of the
Brotherhood of Trainmen and Order of

seem the order of the day. Between the
Christian and the Mussulman dispensa
tions, between Creeks, Turks, Bulgar
ians, Roumanians, Servians and Alban
ians, there is little choice of standards
of civilization. Much of the informa
tion comes from Athens which presents
events only from the standpoint of (Jreek
interests: much is disseminated bv the
newspapers of Vienna, which is a foun-1
tain of canards.
The Turkish government is determined
to drive the whole Greek population from
Thrace, according to accounts from Greek
sources. It has organized a campaign of
oppression which is making life impos
sible for people of Greek affiliations in
the country about Kirk Kilisse, Lule
Burgas and all the land which Bulgaria
conquered in the first war and lost in
the second one.
Irregular troops, who get their living
by loot, and bands of so-called brigands,
all supposed to lie acting under inspira
tion from Constantinople, are overrun
ning the country. Burning villages light
the sky. as during tho days of war: cat
tle and sheep are driven away; pillage
and ravishing go on. Life is made so in

to escape to the coast with what bundles
they can carry on their backs. Athens
reports that 25,000 refugees have arrived
at Salonica by ship, and that 15,0fX) more
are waiting on the coast to get away.
The Greek government, on its part,
does not lack enterprise in oppression,
if witnesses from non-Greek sources may
be credited. Restrictive laws against
the Jews in Salonica have been made
so strong that 80,000 are leaving that
once prosperous port. The battalions of
