THE OMAHA BEE: TUESDAY. JULY 18. 1U22.
at New York City
Organization It Designed to
Supplant the Socialist and
Farmer Factions With
in Next Few Yean.
New York, July 17. The American
labor parly, patterned after the labor
party o( Great Britain, was launched
Sunday by the socialists, farmer
laborites and trades unionist in con
vention at Beethoven hall.
Immediately after the new party
tui started off with a whoop, a
trades union delegate wlio opposed
the amendment, demanded that the
liiction of its repeal be submitted
In a referendum.
This threw the leaders of the re
cently formed labor party into a panic.
They feared the loss of the votes that
swelled the 69.908 total cast for the
farmer-labor ticket two years a (to in
the "dry" sections.
Happy Solution Found.
A happy way out of the dilemma
was found when one of the intellect
uals offered a substitute providing
that all amendments to the constitu
tion be submitted to a referendum.
This, of course, will not affect any
existing amendments, but the "wet"
delegate was not aware of what was
being done, for he led in the demands
for the innocuous substitute.
''It's nothing but a party of op
portunities," said a left wing social
ist, who, witl his fellows has been
ostracised by the convention.
To Supplant Socialists.
The new party will not function as
an independent political group this
year, its organizers announced, but
it will supplant the socialist and
farmer-labor parties within the next
year or two. The farmer-labor party
is comparatively new. It nominated
its first state ticket two years ago,
with Dudley Field Malone at its
head. There is little left of the old
A few years ago the socialists
elected 10 of the 62 assemblymen
from this city. Last year they elect
ed but' three.

Mr. J. M. Hood, Jr., President of the Company,
The Crown Cork and Seal Company has been
in successful operation for over thirty years.
Its principal product is the Crown cork, which,
is the most economical bottle stopping device
produced and for which there is no com

The Company occupies a commanding posi

in this line. The Company's operations are
world-wide, with plants in Baltimore, Toron

Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon (Portugal) and Se
The Company's net profits for the past
thirty years, after deducting interest, taxes
and all other charges, have averaged
$788,377. During the ten years ended De

income available for interest and Federal
taxes was $1,322,164, or Sy2 times the an
nual interest charges on this issue, its only
outstanding funded debt.
In 1920, the Company showed net income of
$1,504,828, but in 1921, the decline in sales
together with substantial inventory adjust

$1,577,144 before interest. Due to curtailed

will show a profit.
