Organiird Labor Threaten-
Grnrral Strike in Retalia
tion for Action Against
Gompers Denounces Act
By GRAFTON S. WILCOX
Omaha ! luH Wlra.
Washington, Sept. !. American
organized labor threaten a general
itnke in retaliation against the gov
ernment for iu course in obtaining a
temporary injunction at Chicago
against the (Inking railroad shop
men and tnrir union ofiicials.
With President Harding acknowl
edging that the injunction is the
most sweeping ever obtained in this
country and expressing a determine
tion not to flop at this, if further
itept are necessary to maintain rail
road transportation, the American
Federation of Labor was aroused to
the point of "seeing red" and will
co'.sidcr the advisability of a general
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, de
nounced the government' course.
He declared the injunction to be in
violation of the law and announced
that the federation executive council
would meet inv Washington Saturday,
September 9, to consider the question
of a general strike.
Pepared for Contequencea.
The conference of American labor
leaden will be held just two days
before the day set by the federal
court in Chicago for a hearing on the
government's motion to make the
temporary restraining' order against
the shopmen permanent.
The p'resident, it was declared in
an authoritative quarter, is prepared
to meet any consequences, political
or economic, that may come from the
government's action. The govern
ment is determined to keep the trains
moving. It believes that the injunc
tion is fully justified. The govern
ment, it was declared, has done all
that it could to bring the strike to an
end. Mediation having proved futile
and negotiations fruitless, the gov
ernment will now proceed to fulfill
its full duty in protecting the rights
of the public and preventing a break
down of transportation.
Saya Injunction "Outrage."
The American Federation of Labor
president was so aroused by the gov
ernment's move that he summoned
the press to his office tp make a
declaration bristling - with - defiance,
and denunciation of the order issued
by Federal Judge Wilkerson in re-j
sponse to Attorney General Daugh
Mr. Gompers called the injunction
"most outrageous." He broadly in
timated labor leaders would ignore
its provisions, which he declared
constituted flagrant violation of the
labor sections of the Clayton anti
Never in his long career at the
l:ead of the American Federation of
Labor, Mr. Gompers said, has he
found such a widespread demand for
a general strike. He stated that he
had received no less than 200 letters
and telegrams urging a nation-wide
walkout, of union labor.
Up to Various Units.
The demands were so powerful, he
Mated, that he felt it his duty to lay
the situation before the executive
council. He pointed out, however,
that neither he nor the executive
council had any authority to call a
general strike. Such action would
have to be endorsed by the various
units that make, up the American
Federation of Labor. The powers of
the executive council are .limited to
recommendations in this respect, but
their recommendations usually carry
great weight in shaping the strike
policies o( the various component
parts of the federation.
The formal meeting of the execu
tive council for September V was not
specially called to deal with the pres
ent situation, Mr. Gompers explained.
The da:e was fixed several months
ago. Because that date is so close
at hand, it will be possible to bring
h, inmnclion and the calling of a
general strike before the council jut j
about as promptly at woum nave
been possible if a special meeting had

Turks Start Encircling
Movement on Greeks
Constantinople, Sept. 1. (By A.
P.) After five days of heavy fight
ing around Afiun Karahissar the
Turkish attacks upon tjie Greeks
have diminished in violence and the
first phase of the operations is re
garded as ended.
A further Turkish advance is said
to be hampered by. the range of
mountains 15 kilometers west ot
Afiun, the crests of which still are in
the hands of the Greeks and from
which the Greeks have used artillery
against the Turkish Infantry.
The Turks are developing an en
circling movement which, in allied
military quarters, is regarded as a
risky operation and, in the case of
failure, may nullify the advantages
gained by the Turks in the last five
days of fighting.

The order wa granted by Federal
District Judge James II. Wilkerson
on application of United States At

force until September 11, pending:
hearings on government's application
for a permanent writ of in junction.
"The underlying principle in

Unions Cannot Dictate.
The attorney general addresaed the
court immediately following th
reading of the formal complaint, read
by Assistant Solicitor General
Lasterline. Hi plea for the in
junction, Mr. Daughrrty said, was
made necessary by the fact "that '
there comes a time in the history of
all nations when the people must be -advised
whether they have a gov
ernment or not."
"No union, or combination of
unions can, under our law, dictate to
the American union," the statement
continued. "When the unions claim
the right to dictate to the govern
ment and to dominate the American
people and deprive the . . , people
of necessities of life, then the gov
ernment will destroy the unions, for
the government of the United States
is supreme and must endure."
For Protection of Unions.
"Tomorrow it will be said by
some . . . more malicious than

"When a man in this country is
