Executive Activity to Add Postage
Gardens to Ti'de Union "lib
In an interview recently the Presi
dent stated to an official of one "of our
international unions that no further
action would be taken by the post
office deparment in regard to chang
ing the status of publications now
classified as secondclass matter until
report was received from the com
mission appointed to investigate this
subject. Much concern has been felt
on account of the attitude of the de
partment regarding publications of
the character mentioned, and if the
department had put into operation its
contemplated regulations trade union
publications now enjoying the sec
ond class privilege would have either
been crushed or materially handi
capped. Opposition to the depart
ment's plans reached such a stage
prior to the adjournment of the sixty
first congress that it authorized the
appointment of a commission, with
the instruction that it report the find
ings of its investigation not later than

SWAMPED WITH MAIL.
Answers to Senator La Follette's Cir
cular to the Railway Mail Clerks
Immense in Number.
Although but a short time has
elapsed since Senator La Follette sent
out his letter of inquiry to the rail
way mail clerks answers are coming
in at the rate of several hundred a
day. The senator's offer to assist
them if furnishd the information nec
essary has struck a responsive chord.
The matter affects these clerks' right
If answers continue to arrive at
the present rate a very large per cent
of these employes will emphasize the
opinion heretofore held that if given
an opportunity 90 per cent of them
would seek membership in the Am
erican Federation of Labor. The
government officials are beginning to
realize now that they have attempted
a difficult task in their effort to de
prive workmen the right to associate
themselves together for the purpose
of improving their conditions.
Pathetic letters have been constant
ly coming into the headquarters of the
American Federation of Labor recit
ing acts of intimidation, coercion and
other forms of tyranny on the part of
superintendents and other officials of
the railway mail service. Many men
have been laid off, victimized and
otherwise mistreated. Definite action
will be inaugurated within a short
time to get the whole matter before
the extra session of congress.

GOOD FOR VERMONT.
Some Splendid Labor Legislation.
Washington, April 15. That the
trade unionists of the country are be
coming alive to the influence which
they can assert along legislative lines
is illustrated by the accomplishments
of the Vermont State branch of the
American Federation of Labor. It is
not an easy task to initiate new leg
islation into the legislatures of the
older and more "sedate" states, for
countries long settled do not
change in opinions or methods rapid
ly. The officials of the state branch
therefore are entitled to much credit
for the excellent results accomplished
during the last session of the Ver
mont legislature. The sum total
gained can best be told in the lan
guage of our informant, secretary of
the state organization, Alexander
"As a result of organized effort
there was enacted an employers' lia
bility bill, voluntary compensation
plan on lines adopted in New York
State; a valuable amendment to the
child labor law, making it the best
law in New England; a bill to amend
the state constitution, giving the legal
voters the right to say whether com
pulsory compensation should be leg
alized. We were also successful in de
feating a bill .designed to establish
compulsory arbitration. We are well
pleased with the Iruits of the session.
Chief Executive Still Inveighing
Against Recall of Judges Provis
ion in Arizona Constitution.
The president is still vigorously
opposing the section of the Arizona
constitution which provides for the
recall of judges. From statements
emanating from the White House it
is gleaned that he can reconccile him
self to all other enactments in the
organic law of the new state save the
one mentioned. But even though this
at the present time seems to be an in
surmontable objection to a ratification
yet the president may be unwilling to
disapprove it solely because of the in
corporation of this provision.
President Taft has held several con
ferences with Attorney General Wick
ersham and other members of the
cabinet on this question. To Chair
man Flood of the house committee on
territories and Representative Hous
ton of Tennessee he has outlined a
scheme to eliminate the clause. The
proposition was that the constitution
pending before congress be adopted,
and that later the people of Arizona',
under the constitutional power, pro
pose an amendment to the constiution
permitting the recall to apply to all
officers now mentioned except judges.
Prominent Arizonians now in Wash:
ington state that the people of the
territory, while anxious to be granted
statehood, would, if the recall of
judges provision were, again sub
mitted to a vote, retain it by an over
whelming majority. "; -
