Romany tribes, commonly known as "gypsies", are traveling toward California from all parts of the United States with the avowed purpose of establishing a "sirnihatch ' or permanent sacred en campment at Emeryville, across the bay from Sau Francisco, officials of east bay cities believe. In possession of tribal leaders, who came to the coast to attend the recent marriage of George Adams, head of one tribe, and "Gypsy" Mary, who said she was an Egyptian princess, were found telegrams from headquar ters of six tribes scattered throughout the country. These contained but two words "Amen avasa" or "We come!" They were said to be re plies to a country wide call for the gathering of the gyp3y clans. Not aU of the gypsies are included in the' movement. The response is confined to the more religious ele ment who still cling to the tradition that one day they would take the road to the land of promise by the "great -water-" the ultimate home or the wanderers on the Pacific Coast. Fifteen thousand men and women and their boyS and girls, are estima ted to be on their way here. Lesko Amenja, head of a Greek gypsy band, and others have made inquiries as to state laws on municipal organization and the residents of Emeryville are said to be apprehensive that the gyp sies will have sufficient voting power to take over control of the town, now a city of. 2.700 population. The bands are reported to have adopted a central tribal flag designed at Chicago by one of their leaders. It bearing the legend "Borodlro Sivety"-"A Greater re ple." Involved in the migration to this coast are gypsies of the Turkish, Rumanian, Hungarian, German, Mo ravian, Lithuanian, Russian, GreeK. Bohemian, Italian and Spanish tribes. (Industrial Index.) Just a few days ago this country seemed almost face to face with an industrial crisis that in some respects would be unparalleled. The ly bright side was the common realiza tion system would be so acute that it could not, of its very nature- last over a week or so. But there have been some helpful developments, and perhaps a surprise or two. At any rate the prevailing sentiment Is distinctly more moder ate than that of a week or two ago National labor leaders appear to have a sobering jense of responsibility in the grave crisis that confronts or(- iranized labor. Labor, like capital must run the gauntlet of public opin Ion. Labor leaders do not wish to ninke anv serious mistake at a time when labor has an opportunity to do itself and the whole country as a whole real service, or else by in jvdicious act set back the clocks of thP, working classes as a wnoie tor vp.irs. Labor leaders realize that hardships brought upon the country as a whole affect labor- too- ror tne great bulk of us are workers. When an industrial price of any kind is to te paid, labor pays the greater part of the price. When an added bur den is to be born- it is borne princi pally by labor. By labor we mean simply those who work; that part of the nation not composed in the purely nitaliatic class. Labor has an opportunity at this critical Juncture of Bhowing a spirit of moderation and co-operation; of a demonstration that it Is a part of , American people- and npt a class epart from them that will create generally a kindlier feeling toward ani7M labor and a respect for the judgment and sense of responsibility of those whom labor has chosen to h it leaders and spokesmen.
