UNITED EFFORT CALLED FOR >' One of the First Evils to B« Attacked •Is the High Cost as Factor Contributing Most to Industrial Unrest. Washington, March 22.—The political platform of the 4,000.000 member* of associated trade unions was made public in an advance editorial 'in'' the American Federntioriist,' labor's official organ, by Samuel Gompers. The editorial entitled "Labor's Political Banner Unfurled" is considered to be an official "'analysis of labor's platform in the coming presidential campaign. A united effort by union labor is called for by Mr., Gompers to'defeat -all candidates "who are indifferent or Sostile to the people's interests ana the aspirations of labor." • A "political 1 blacklist" already has b'een compiled by the American Federation of labor containing the 'names of all probable candidates for office who have shown thenlselves inimical to labor. This' list is to be augmented as the campaign approaches to include all-, candidates whom iaber wishes defeated.' Failure of Congress. In enumerating the^campaign .principles Mr, .Goiupers states that "not one '.measure - of' really constructive character:', has been placed upon the statute books- since the armistice, and tha{ labor, -must.. take action in the campaign to bring about the selection of candidates who will change this git- tiatlou. : One of the first evils to be attacked, Mr. Gompers points out,- is the high 'cost of'living. , "No factor., contributes more to in- : dustrinl unrest and unstability.' than '.excessive costs of necessaries^'••'of' life," tlie editorial states*" - I : "It is a demonstrated truth that the cost of living has advanced; more rapidly than have .wages;- We urge the deflation of currency, prevention of hoarding and unfair price firing, establishing . of co-operative movements operated under the Rochdale i system,' makhig accessible all income tax returns and 'dividend declarations." N Control of Profits. • ' The publicity of profits of all corporations and their federal supervision and control by government eir aminers is a constructive measure, which: slionld have congressional at : tention, Mr. Gompers states. The establishment of a system of government credites) . whereby labor- Ing men might borrow money at 'low rates of interest to trcn'ld their own homes, the editorial points out, would free ownership of homes from the grasp of exploitative and speeulativ.e interests, will make far more efficient workers, more contented families and better citizens. "Credit should also be extended to voluntary nonprofit making housing and joint tenancy associations. States. and municipalities should be frfeed from restrictions preventing their nn- ijertaking proper housing projects." . A graduated fax jipon all usable land which is not actually cultivated Is recommended to prevent the private ownership of large, unproductive estates. • " •• NO JUSTICE IN IFF TfMf ESCAPE 'British Premier Tells Moslems' They.

Applying impartially to. union and no'nunion labor,- the plan does not prohibit strikes or lockouts, does not provide for compulsory arbitration, which organized labor opposes, does not enforce collective bargaining or acceptance of 'arbitral 'awards by either pnrty, and avoids compulsion in any -form. ••_• • The: plfm, however, is ' ingeniously contrived to invoke the force of p'ubllc opinion'to induce the arbitration of disputes and the acceptance ofawards snd.to.disconrs'ge.strlkes and lockouts. The theory of. the .proposals is that disputes shall"be,settled; if possible, "at the-source" in. the shop councils, but,'failing that,! shall-go to the sys-, tern of investigation and arbitration tribunals. Agreement of both sides to arbitration.. carries, with" 1 it the obligation to desist from strikes or lockouts pending decision. . WORK FOR SEPARATE PEACE ANOTHER H. C.

The woman who feeds her family ten- ] derloin steak and the man who wears. : 'silk shirts are the ones who are. keep- • Ing prices np.' Remedies so far ..have • not been effective because they have been blanket measures, made to cover . groups, communities, masses.

"For 15 years I have been in tlie federal service. Not everybody, feels kindly toward that service. I don't know that anybody does. \ "In 191-4 the employees of the United Sf«tes governmont were underpaid. They got loss thiui inen and women of the same ability working for anybody else.

Demand for Justice. "I nm here in redemption of a promise. During the war I advised postnl and other federal employees to hold off—to go easy—to stick to their jobs because we were at war, and when the war is over, I told them. 'I will go to "the front, for you and try to get justice.' "If tlie wages of the federal employees were cut in half you couldn't get up u strike among them. That is all the more reason, that congress should settle this difficulty, and give them, justice. "The question has been raised, 'Where is the money coining from?' Even at the risk of being misunderstood, I will say Hie Supreme court of the United States decided it was beyond the power of congress to lay a tax against n stock dividend. Now I am. not criticizing that court, at least publicly, this afternoon, but I reserve the right to have my own opinion as. to that matter. "It is a matter of opinion that there are many melons to .be cut of the accumulated profits of 1917; that they are to be disposed of .through a stock dividend program. I will give'these^ men warning that a way will be found' through which the United r S-tates will have the power to tax n stock dividend. But, remember, I am not criticizing any court. "Keep Out of U. S. Service." - "To persons who advise with me about going into the government service I 'tell them. 'Under no circumstances go Into the federal service, because' of the Injustice with which the government treats Its employees;' all except federal judges, who are notoriously overpaid. If any of you can find anything to'do outside, get out and get out now. I don't know whether I am violating any statute in giving that advice. . , London.
