Remarks of Former Assistant Attorney
General Beck.
I Now York, Jan. 22.?An attack on
labor anions made by tormer Assist-j
nnt Attorney (Jeneral Hock, ot I'hila-1
t deluhia, was the canso for the remarks
made by William .J. Hryan in departing
from the text of his speech at the I
Holland society dinner just held hero.'
Mr. Hryan declared there it; greater j
1 danger from "corporations which dofy
the law" than from labor unions.
I Mr. Deck, in his speech, said:
| "if 1 do not misread history, the,
prosperity of the Dutch pooj>'?v "has
| founded upon a principle which is viI
tally essential to the progress and hap;
plncss of any people, and that is the
unalienable right of every man to
| work for whom he pleases and at
what wage ho pleases and to enjoy ]
ireeiy the fruits of his toil. This principle
lit in some need of vindication in
this country and at this hour. Man :
was not brought into the world to ;
work. It is only his burden. 71 is
right and any form of social tyranny
which contravenes this right is inftn1
itely mischievous.
