Chicago Federation of Labor to Make Record of Labor Cases. The Chicago Federation of Labor decided at a regular meeting to keep Labor Troubles Infrequent Where Written Agreements Exist. The strike of the unorganized labor In the Pressed Steel Car plant, at Mc Kees Rocks, Pa., has been settled through concessions made by the em nlrivors Concessions made because of ' pressure of public opinion when the facts were learned, and yet among the mottoes of the Employers' and Manu facturers' association is this: No sac rifice of the independent worklngmen to the labor union. No, they should stand alone to be plucked as the evi dence shows they were in this open plant. There are many good people who seem to believe that if there were no labor organizations there would be no strikes. The history of labor , strug gles for decent treatment for the past 100 years in America, as well as the Pressed Steel Car strike, shows how absurd such notions are. The fact is, that the most lasting peace is where the laboring men are best organized and working under written agreements for the sale ot their services, and those agreements which have been longest in force In sure best relations between employer and employe, and best conditions in every sense.
