TEE CHILLICOTHE DAILY, CONSTITUTION WEDNESDAY, OCT. 25, 1916 SENATOR JAMES A. REED Cansas City, Mo., Democratic Candidate for Re-election, Lawyer, Statesman and Friend of Labor. Over twenty years ago, when County Counsellor of Jackson nty, he rendered an opinion that the county court could require all public printing bear the union label, and, as Mayor of Kan- City, he did require that all of the printing of the city be done mion labor. In the past six years he has been the champion of the laboring in the United States Senate. Defense of the American Federation of Labor. In 1912. on the floor of the senate, he defended Samuel Gompers the American Federation of Labor, against the unjust attack e by the Republican Senators. He again defended Mr. Gompers tlie American Federation of Labor in the summer of 1916. National Association of Manufacturers' Lobby. The National Association of Manufacturers, an organiza- which always fought labor, was the head ef the lobby which :ed Washington during the Republican administration. Senator a member of the Lobby Investigating Committee, was aped as chief attorney for the investigating- committee which this organization from the halls of Congress. Dickey is a er of this organization. -- - - ·-. Railroads' Workmen's Compensation Bill. or years labor organizations of this country had been endeavor- secure a Workmen's Compensation act which would protect from the "ambulance chasing" lawyers and at the same time for them a just sum for the damages they sustained while in ^charge of their duties. The railroads saw the "handwriting on 11," and had their representatives introcKtce a Workmen's Corn- ion bill, w h i c h , although purporting to be what labor demands in fact a bill which took away from labor most of the rights ad under the common law and gave them no additional rights, a "wolf and sheep clothing." Senator Reed debated this meas- · days to get it amended so that it would be a benefit to labor t a'detriment. As the result of his fight, the scheme of rail- md corporations was exposed and the bill was defeated. Abolition of Gag Rule. e gag- rule issued by Roosevelt and Taft forbidding govern- ;mployes from petitioning congress or belonging to labor was nullified by Congress at the instance of Senator Reed. Convict Labor. ,e bill to prevent competition between free labor and convict y preventing interstate shipments of convict-made goods lorted favorably by Senator Reed's committee and ardently ed by him on the floor of the Senate. Paint Creek Strike. May, 1913, the condition of the miners at Paint Creek, W. :ame so intolerable that a strike \ 3 called. The mine own- jorted a gang of detectives, thugs, scabs and professional and encamped them near the strikers. As a result there itinual warfare and the Governor of the state called out the and declared r'-artial law. The strikers were tried and im- 1 by a military court martial, but were refused trial by jury Reed was one of the chief backers of a resolution in the :alling for an, investigation of these conditions. Preventing Competition of Soldiers With Civilians. j · a n u m b e r of years organized musicians of the country had deavoring to have legislation enacted which would prevent ipetition of army musicians with civilians, the reason for tention being that army musicians were on the government supported by taxes of the people, and when these govern- id employes hired themselves out for private performances :rebv prevented the employment of civilian musicians who no'pay from the government. Senator Reed succeeded in through an act which prevented competition of army men Hans "in any line of trade. Preventing Abuse of Writ of Injunction, itor Reed was instrumental in inserting in the Clayton Anti- t, the provisions which declared that the labor 'of human s ' n o t an article of commerce, which exempted labor and 3-anizations from the terms of the anti-trust laws, which ;d the abuse of the writ of injunction, and guaranteed trial in contempt cases. Stop Watch System. 'uly, 1916, there was a proposition before the Senate pro- nat the stop watch or Taylor system, so injurious to the man, should not be used in government factories. Senator de a vigorous fight for this provision and succeeded in hav- tained and enacted into law.

If Union Labor is oppressive, over-bearing, unreasonable, and a public detriment, it should be muzzled. Labor conditions are growing from bad to worse all over th« country. Unless their demands are met by concerted action on the part of organized employers, Kansas City will soon be in the grasp of labor agitators. Business enterprises will be paralyzed, as they are today in San Francisco, where the Chamber of Commerce has determined to raise $1,000,000.00 for the purpose of putting an end to the present strike, and bring about conditions wherein any and all men may find employment, without paying tribute to labor unions. The street railways of New York are tied up. The dairy business of Cleveland and St. Louis are today out of business, on account of drivers' demands. The dairy drivers have forbidden grocery and bakery wagons to come, and will not permit ice to be delivered to the dairy companies by union teamsters. Can we expect organized labor in Kansas City to rest quietly and refuse to participate in the "labor movement" that is being promoted in other cities. Unless prompt action is taken for self protection, Kansas City will be "union ridden" as many other large :ities are. What is being done by the business interests to head off .he advances of organized labor? Does any one imagine that organized labor has sufficient pride in this city's welfare to withhold its death-dealing- hand, should an opportunity arise to promote its selfish ends? Labor unions demand that you must do business under their dictation, regardless of profits or protests. If you think union labor is competent to dictate the policy, name the wagjes and hours which must govern your business, then, without resistance, you should invite them in and let them take charge. If, on the contrary, one cannot subscribe to their policy and is determined to do business without outside interference, now is the time to "get busy" and make "preparedness." Will YOU awaken before the crisis? Should labor agitators have enacted,into laws all that they have mentioned in their requests for "Legislation Wanted," the business men will soon wake up. Their legislative committee is at work. The Employers' Association is perfecting arrangements to prevent a "tie up" of industries in Kansas City, to oppose the enactment of laws that will injure business and place undue burdens on employers. Will you co-operate with us for mutual protection ? Yours truly, .,,, H. H. ANDERSON, Secretary.
