Samuel Gompers' Reply to Let
ter of President.
Washington, Oct 21\—Replying to
President KoosevelVs letter to Senator
Knox in reference to the application
of the writ of injunction in labor dis
putes Samuel Gomoers, president of
the American Federation of Labor, se
verely arraigns the president for what
he terms "a change of position of at
least apparent friendship to bitter, in
'It has been my pleasure," Mr.
Gompers says, "to have oft had the
privilege of discussing with President
Eoos-ovelt a number of the funda
mental questions of right, justice and
moral and social uplift. Included in
these discussions were the invasions
of personal rights and human liberty
by the courts in the injunction abuse.
It is true that the president has not
always fully agreed with my conten
tions, but he has never, until the pub
lication of his latest utterance, hinted,
much less charged, that anything that
he advocated was lawless, unfeeling,
despotic, brutal or wicked and yet
the rights for which the workers of
our country contend, and which as
best I can I defends and advocate,
have been as well known to him dur
ing the past several years as they
are when he now so unjustifiedly un
dertakes to misrepresent my work,
my motives, my law-abiding citizen
ship. Surely that opinion was not al
ways entertained by the president."
