Compliments pf New Yoj:k Leather Belting Co.
This is an extract from the reply written by
Robert Baker, President of the Austin Engine Com
pany, Brooklyn, New York:
AUSTIN ENGINE COMPANY
t vj",j Office: Second Avenue and Eighth Street. :
Brooklyn, N. Y., July 25, 1908:
New York Leather Belting Co.,
51 Beckman Street, New York.
. , Gentlemen : We have yours of July 22d offering
us copies of cards posted in your factories, which
you say read as follows :
' 'Believing that the election of Taft and Sherman
means a safe and progressive business administra
tion the day following their election We shall start
this plant on 'FULL TIME and KEEP GOING "
Permit us to say we do not understand. Why
have you stopped your factories? Why is the
"FULL TIME and KEEP GOING" plan not now
.in operation? Why has there been any shutting
.down by you and the other members of-the National
Association of Manufacturers, the American Hard
ware Manufacturers ' Association and the numerous
other similar associations to which you say you
belong? r Did you not assure us that McKinley
would insure a "full dinner pail" to all who desire
to work? Was not this assurance renewed when
your several bodies endorsed Roosevelt and Fafr
banks? Then what has emptied the dinner pail of
millions of men who are willing to work? What
greater reliance can be placed on this assurance
than' on the other? If you were false prophets be
fore, -"how do we know you will not be a&ain?"
