JoiP A. Ho1 f Nelton, candidate for pongress fro this district, has given outthe fellewlngletter discuss. Hig import6 it qiftionsi. I am sLrungly In favor pf labor unions. It 0s the i%4,glven right of every man, andshis right as a: citizen of: this great country, to organize and unite with his lellow-men for.te.apurpose of improv g phis conditions iha general. No man will dispute this as a general propo sition. It fs.as natural for men to or ginize for the general uplift of all and for the bettering of conditions and sur roundings as it is for witer to run'down hill. Let's look around, vgt ourvery doors, and see what we find along this line. The -cotton mills, doctors, dentists, law yers, Ymerchants, bankers and hundreds of other trades and ptofessions have their organizations. ,Then why is it wrong for the mill operatives to organ ize? Why is he alone singled out as the one class of our citizens "who shall not organize" for the betterment of his con ditions? It seems to me very short sighted policy of some of our mill presi dents to pursue the policy some have the past months. Would it not be better for them to say to their help, "Yes, go ahead and organize, try and8select the best men from your ranks for officers and committeemen to represent you, and when you have any grievance or com plaint to make, we will meet you half way. We will talk the matter over, hear your side of the case and then pre sent our's, and as reasonable men we ean get together and adjust the matter.'' rhis seems to me to be the righticourse to pursue and when anything is founded upon right you stand upon very high ground. It is a shameful state of af Cairs when white men, living in a free :ountry- "The land of the free and the rome of the brave"-are actually afraid to mention a word, above a whisper, in favor of labor unions for fear of being immediately turned off and thrown out >f employment. I do not vouch for the ruthfulness of the following, but it is generally talked that if a man takes any part in the getting up of a union, or 3ven speaks favorably of them, his job s gone. And it is a very difficult mat ter to get another position with any of the mills in this section. If this be true it is the rankest sort of oppression and should not be tolerated. I hope it is not true, for it is so unreasonable on its very face it is hard to believe business men would act so foolishly. Any person who would transmit, by phone or letter, the name of any man who had been dis charged for the reason he was in sym pathy with labor unions ought to be lia able.criminally and any mill which aoun. tenances any such act should be liable for damages. It is an outrage that free white men should be hounded from pil lar to post in any such manner when he is only exercising his right as a citizen of this great country -the freedorm of which we boast so mu<.h. I say to the mill operatives to o 'gan Ize. The longer you put . off just so long are you standing in youm own light. The masses of our people, both town and country, are at our back. If our mills continue the course in which they have started they will soon find them selves in the very unenviable position the railroads deliberately placed them selves by the way and manner they treated the public a few years ago. They soon discovered the short-sighted ness of their policy and set about put ting their house in order. But it took a long time and they had to reap their bitter reward. I have heard that some of the mills of the Piedmont section of our state have about decided it is the wrong policy to fight the organization of their help and to accept the situation and meet it as men should. This would seem to be the only rational course for them ' > pursue. It is not much trouble to get along with men who actually work4 for a living when you treat them like human beings. The majority of the help in many of the mills in this section when shown that conditions do not war rant any advance in wages would accept the situation gracefully. All they would want, and they have a peorfect right to be shown, that conditions were truth. fully represented as to profits. When times are hard and no profits can be made at the present wage-whatever that might be-the help, when showr actual facts, would be willing, as a sonable men, to share in the depression. Then, when conditions is improved and the margin of profits increased, it Is nothing but right that labor should share In the increase. I have noticed In the papers of late that several of the New England milhi have granted increases In wages, giving BISCUIT Supply energy. Build blood and muscle. Give vigoro brainand nerve. Nearly twice the food value per pound of the best steaks. Cost much less. Me im Ja~ne roh Wq~' ieo~r Rural il P ery as the reason profitesere better. This was done without a "srkk'' on the partof the operative, too., Tbis sldws what can be done when peopld'ptie a live-and-let-live policy. As to the postoffico departme tion In disturbing the rural free delivery service by trying to combine two 'Outes in one and have the service rendered in automobiles, it seems to be meeting with much opposition wherever it has been tried out. It seems to me to be a very serious mistake on the part of the postoffice officials. It means for one of the old routes to be served a good por tion of the year by a sub-carrier, and that means inefficient service. The rural free delivery is the greatest thing the national government has ever given the masses of our people and for the government to badly cripple the service under the false notion of trying to econ omise is simply deplorable. It is to be hoped that enough congressmen and senators will make such a vigorous pro test that it will be discontinued and the routes that have been changed put back as before and each carrier given his same place. Sam Nicholls is doing his best to stop any contemplated changes in his dis trict. Let us hope he miy be success ful. The postoffice department is about the only branch of the government that is in any way near self-sustaining. Then why do ..anything that will in any way hamper .the service to the country peo ple?
