Hertenstein wrote to McKinley. Re publican candidate for Governor, ask- i Ing an explanation. McKinley delayed j answering by letter. j McKinley yesterday sent an fitilJ- sary to see Hertenstein. Hertenstein refused to talk to the emissary, saying McKinley's stand was the only one he cared about, as McKinley is the man asking for votes. McKinley then telephoned to Hertenstein calling him to the Planters Hotel for a conference. John Warrington, secretary of the Allied Printing Trades Council, and A. 15. Sovey. of the Bookbinders" Union, accompanied Hertenstein to the conference. They talked with McKinley for two hours, making suggestions. Wouldn't Write It. Finally McKinley was told to his vii'wg in writing. "I haven't time." he said. That broke up the conference. "All we want." said Hertenstein this morning, "is to have McKinley put himself in black and white so he can not say he was misquoted. There is only one way he can get us off his back. That is to give us his written word h is for text books printed by free labor. "Union lalor throughout the State will be asked to Join In the fight on McKinley If he does not change his front." Greatest Need of This Country Is Free Press, Says Woman Leader BY EMMA F. LANGDON. l nion Labor Organizer Who Ix-fk the Smelter Trust. If you were to ask me what we need most in this country J woulJ say that our greatest need is a free press. How can "we educate our people in 'the working classes with the present rule by a corporation-controlled pres? The same people that own the smelters, the mines and the mills of the United States own the vast majority of the country's great dailies. I most earnestly thank The Star for the opportunity which it is giving me today to present labor's side in our great fight with the smelter trust. It is an opportunity to reach the public which is seldom given to u.s. Let the corporations strive as they will for complete mastery in this country, let labor struggle for its very existence, but let the press be free to criticise, condemn, psaise or educate. Let GotT-given speeci be not muzxled. put MILLIONAIRE'S SON, FREED FROM JAIL, GOES BACK AGAIN CHICAGO, Pept. 23. Harold F. Hoops, son of a millionaire, is a guest at the Hridwell today. He is a real guest. He returned there voluntarily to work out a plan for his future, and be Is permitted to remain through the courtesy of Warden Whitman. Hoops served twenty-six days of a fifty-day sentence for "mashing." Finally his father mailed a check to pay the balance of his fine and the lad went home. He could not face the friends of his "wild oats" days. He could not face relatives at home. Less than twelve hours after he was freed he was back at the Hridwell asking to be locked up again. "I have learned my lesson." said Hoops. "I have nothing further to say. My actions hereafter must speak for me." Here's an 88-Note Player-Piano von $395 nrlil' S-taalarl Mali With S Hfll Mn-te.

First "I take the position that every man here in your employ owes to you his best services while at work, whether he is attending a furnace or doing the most common labor. When he leaves here and goes to his home I then take the position that he frhall have the privilege of Joining any church, an; fraternal organization or any other society h may see fit to Join." Second "Yes. any church, but a labor organization is a different proposition." Third "I have always understood this Is a free 'country. I think yout position is thoroughly un-American. Fourth "Yes. I agree with you. it Is a free country and therefore I am free to let any man who Joins a labor organization hunt another job." Fifth "I wish to say. through the medium of The Star that In addition to the dozen or more men Mr. Porter has discharged because they have Joined our union. I have secretly Initiated during the last week thirty-five men working at the smelter he runs for the Guggen-heims and he doesn't know it. Let him find out their names if he can and discharge them. More than that. I or some other organizer will stick to the Job until every one of his 300 employes Is a member of our union." The first and third paragraphs in the above quote words used by Emma F. Langdon. union labor organizer, recipient of a medal for her defense of the freedom of the press, and the only woman member of two labor organizations with a total membership of 369,000, In a conference fraught with sensational declarations which she held yesterday afternoon with Rudolph Porter of St. Louis, general manager of the smelting department of the Federal Lead Company, in its plant at Federal, two miles from Alton. 111. In the second and fourth paragraphs are quoted the answers to her by air. Porter. aa aiven to me last night by organized labor's fearless champion. Defiance to Capital. The fifth paragraph conveys organized labor's defiance to organized cip-ttal. as voiced to me by this same champion. j In giving me her version of her I conference with Mr. Porter. Emma iLangdon's piercing black eyes snapped, j her Hps were pressed closely together as she completed her sentence, and her combative chin spelled the mes- l sage to Mr. Porter that in the fight j she Is waging with him single-handed In organized labor's name, she will ask no quarter. j Anyone hearing her tell of yester-j day's conference at Federal could ! easily Imagine that beneath her lady-llike demeanor there lurked the dauntless spirit which earned for her the gold medal officially bestowed upon hr for her heroic defense of the freedom of the press during the bloody strike in the Cripple Creek district, nine years ago. .1 j . . . 1 1 i k muse days oi memorauie . . . ... . , ,,, . . ; . ; Tou can t prevent the workers from tumult in Colorado, Emma Langdon, ' . .

She prepared the news, set the type, locked up the forms, ran the electric press and gave out the papers for distribution. The editor and his entire force, including her brother-in-law, had been thrown Into the bullpen by the militia, and unassisted she gave the Record's clientele the news of the day. so eagerly sought by steadily laboring for nearly three days. For this heroic work, taken up unasked on her birthday, she was honored with a gold medal which, although inscribed simply as coming from friends, was bestowed upon her by city and county officials of Teller County, In the center of Colorado's strife. An Independent Paper. "It was not a Socialist paper," she said last night, although she ir an active worker in the Socialist ranks. "It was independent and thoroughly democratic, like The Star. Still I was not afraid to print it. The people of Victor and vicinity wanted the news and I gave it to them, despite .the unwarranted attempts of the authorities to suppress the publication of the Record. "So you don't imagine, do you," she added, her snapping black eyes sending an electric defiance to Mr. Porter, "that I am going to let one Individual In the smelter trust stop me from organizing the men in its employ? I am secretly Initiating from one to five every day. but it would have suited me much better and been more American if I could have done this openly." In a speech at New Club Hall, Thirteenth street and Chouteau avenue, last Sunday afternoon, Emma Langdon told an amazed auadience that all the charter members of a union she had organized in the smelting plant of the National Lead Company at Col-llnsville. III., on July 2, had been dis charged. She added that from twelve to fifteen members of a union which she had organized in Alton, Sunday before last, had also been given their walking papers. Protects Converts. After deciding to turn her policy f public into secret initiation, in order to protect her converts in their employment, she arranged for yesterday's conference with Mr. Porter In the hope that some way to remove the difficulties In the path of trades unionism might be agreed upon. Here is her story of the conference: "I wish to say at the start that our talk throughout was pleasant. Many a joke was cracked. Mr. Porter was perfectly courteous at all times, but 5'cs. the undercurrent of determined hostility was undoubtedly always rls Ing. I didn't put on any ?ty! organized now. This is true, run ning the entire gamut from the merchants to the smelter trust. Tout company itself is In an organization. "'How do you know it is? he asked. - " 'Tou know that I know that it Is," I told him. 'What chance would you have of prospering against the great smelter trust if you were outside its financial fortress? Understand me, I don't object to your Joining It. I only object wnen you prohibit your employes from joining a labor organization to protect their own interests, the same as you or any other employer joins a business or ganization to protect your own Interests. " 'I went through the Cripple Creek strike and can never rorget It, he commented. That's simply prejudice, I retorted. 'Tou should not let such feelings interfere with justice here.- " I believe that labor organization will ultimately come among our employes.' he admitted, 'and we w!? probably have trouble, along that line, but I'm going to put it off as long as I can. " 'I am not here to stir up strife. was my answer. 'If T go away you might have some radicals crne here and make speeches to your men on the road just outside your plant. In a year from now you will Tiish I had stayed here. "It made my Southern blood boil to hear his man so calmly spurn our cause, which is the cause of common humanity. I repeatedly called his attention to the undoubted fact that after his men re through with their day's work they are free to do as they please, but it seemed to be in vain. Why would not his men be allowed to join cur union when they are allowed to become Masons or Odd Fellows or to join any other fraternal organization? At Lovejoy Monument. " 'This conference, mark you. was held In the shadow of the lofty Love-Joy Monument, erected in Alton in freedom's name. Our rlerht of peaceful assemblage is guaranteed to us by the Constitution, which proclaims it as a basic principle of our govern ment. Yet this man denies us thl3 right. I repeat. It makes mv Southern blood boil." "I told Mr. Porter I would have been glad to have him attend eny-tf our meetities and hear every word I said. Twice I tried to reach him on the telephone to extend such an invitation, but he was away each time. He told me he had been 9f I them, but I certainly did not see him. i win ni? manner in saj ing so I in- j . .11. i I ln t. fi4ani!v J - . , .terred that his hostility had not wav. as if I naa Known mm an my life.

"RiKht here I w ish to say that wer-i this merely a talk between two Individuals, at least one of whom rr.y- elf i3 of no public importance, the subject would simply be one for Urn.-ited private discussion. It was. however, the misguided ultimatum of or-gan'zed capital to organized labor, as I understand it, and that necessarily must be a subject of great import to the American people.

Rest assured that such a course would be adopted only as a last resort." Questions on conditions in the Flat River district revealed that Emma Langdon had taken an active part in organizing the 3,500 men. Besides assisting in this she found a special field among the women, organizing five auxiliaries of substantial size, containing hundreds of members. She also organized children between the ages of 4 and 12, believing that the ultimate solution of the labor problem will rest largely with the rising generation. She Was employed in active labor there as the accredited representative of the Western Federation of Miners from June 14, 1911, until July 10 of this year. The medal presented to her for her bravery In publishing the Victor Record during the Cripple Creek strike has on the obverse side her name on a bar and this inscription: "Foi- bravery in defeating military suppression of the press, Sept. 29, 1903. On the reverse side are these words: "Heroism. From friends of the Cripple Creek District. Feb. 12, 1904." Emma Langdon is proud of the i fact that she is the only woman member of the Western Federation of Miners, with a total membership of 50,000. and also the only woman member of the United Mine Workers of America, In whose ranks 319,000 delvers into the bosom of the earth are enrolled. She is an honorary member of both these organizations. She is also an active member of Typographical Union No. 49 in Denver. "If the government of the country were turned over to me to manage," she said in concluding her Interview. "my first act would be to send the J women and children home, where they should be out of stores and factories and away from the grind of industry put the children in school and give the women an opportunity to be the mothers of a race of gods. "I would rather be at home the average woman would but you see we are all In this eternal battle for bread to make a living.

So far 140 delegates have reported at the convention and 600 are expected to arrive today. Mrs. Ellen P.
