BOY TORTURED BY ECZEMA
"When my boy was six years old , he
luffcrcd terribly with eczema. Ho
could neither sit still nor Ho quietly in
bed , for the itching was dreadful. Ho
would irritate spots by scratching
with his nails and that only made
them worse. A doctor treated him
nnd we tried almost everything , but
the eczema ucomed to spread. It
Btnrted in a small place on the lower
extremities nnd spread for two ycnrs
until it very nearly covered the back
pnrt of his leg to the knee.
"Finally I got Cuticura Soap , Cutl-
cura Ointment nnd Cuticura Pills nnd
nave them according to directions. I
used them in the morning and that
evening , before I put my boy to bed ,
I used them ngaln nnd the Improve
ment oven In those few hours was sur
prising , the inflammation seemed to
bo so much less. I used two boxes of
Cuticura Ointment , the same of the
Pills and the Soap and my boy was
cured. My son is now In his sev
enteenth year and he has never had
n return of the eczema.
"I took care of a friend's child that
had eczema on its face nnd limbs nnd
I used the Cuticura Soap nnd Ointment
They acted on the child Just na they
did on my son nnd It has never re
turned. I would recommend the Cuti
cura Remedies to anyone. Mrs. A. J.

Btnrted out to ruin the Bucks Steve
Co. , drlvo Us hundreds of workmen
out of work and destroy the value of

that hard enrned money of men who
worked , had been invested there.
The conspirators were told by the
courts to stop these vicious "trust"
methods , ( efforts to break the firm
that won't como under trust rule ) , but
Instead of stopping they "dare" the
courts to punish them and demand
now laws to protect them In such de
structive nnd tyrnnnical acts as they
may desire to do. * * * The reason
Gompors and his band persisted in try
ing to ruin the Bucks Steve Works
was because the stove company insist
ed on the right to keep some old em
ployees nt work when "do union" or
dered them dlschnrged and some of
"do gang" put on.
Now let us reverse the conditions
and have a look.
Suppose the company had ordered
the union to dismiss certain men from
their union , nnd , the demand being re
fused , should institute n boycott
against that union , publish its name
In an "unfair list , " instruct other man
ufacturers all over the United Stntes
not to buy the labor of that union ,
have committees call at stores and
threaten to boycott If the merchants
sold anything made by that union.
Picket the factories whore members
work nnd slug them on the wny homo ,
blow up their houses nnd wreck the
works , and even murder a few mem
bers of the boycotted union to teach
tuem they must obey the orders of
"organized Capital ? " , , ,
"There is no trust or combination of
capital In the world , " said Mr. Burns ,
"that violates laws oftener than do the
trust labor organizations , which resort
to more dishonest , unfair nnd dishon
orable methods toward their competi
tors than any trust or combinations in
the country. "
Mr. Burns said the action of "these
so-called leaders" would bo harmful
for years to como whenever attempts
were made to obtain labor legislation.
"Tho Labor Digest , " a reputable
worklngman's paper , says , as part of
an article entitled "Tho beginning of
the end of Gomperslsm , many organ
izations becoming tired of the rule-or-
ruln policies which have been en
forced by the president of the A.
F. of L. "
"That ho has maintained his leader
ship for BO long n time In the face of
his stubborn clinging to policies which
the more thoughtful workingmen have
seen for years must bo abandoned , has
been on account partly of the senti
mental feeling on the part of the or
ganizations that ho ought not to bo de
posed , nnd the unwillingness of the
men who were mentioned for the plnco ,
to nccopt a nomination in opposition to
him. In addition to this , there Is no
denying the shrewdness of the leader
of the A. F. of L. , and his political sa
gacity , which has enabled him to keep
n firm grip on the machinery of the or
ganization , nnd to have his faithful
henchmen In the positions where ihey
could do him the most good whenever
their services might bo needed.
"Further than this , ho has never
failed , at the last conventions , to have
some sensation to spring on the con
vention at the psychological moment ,
which would place him In the light of
a martyr to the cause of unionism , and
excite a wave of sympathetic enthusi
asm for him , which would carry the
delegates off their feet , and result In
"That his long leadership , nnd thid
apparent Impossibility to fill his place
has gone to his head , and made him
imagine that he is much greater a mnn
than ho really is , Is undoubtedly the
case , and accounts for the tactics ho
has adopted in dealing with questions
before congress , where he has unneces
sarily antagonized men to whom or
ganized labor must look for recogni
tion of their demands , and where labor
measures are often opposed on account
of this very antagonism , which would
otherwise receive support.
"There is no doubt but what organ
ized labor In this country would be
much stronger with a leader who was
more in touch with conditions as they
actually exist , and who would bring to
the front the new policies which organ
ized labor must adopt if It expects to
even maintain its present standing , to
say nothing of making future progress. "
Wo quote portions of another article ,
a reprint , from the same labor paper :
"Organized labor , through its lead
ers , must recognize the mistakes of the
past if they expect to perpetuate their
organizations or to develop the move
ment which they head. No movement ,
no organization , no nation can develop
beyond the Intellects which guide
these organizations , and if the leaders
are dominated by a selfish motive the
organization will become tinged with
a spirit of selfishness , which has never
appealed to mankind in any walk of
life at any tlmo since history began.
"It can be said in extenuation of cer
tain leaders of organized labor that
the precarious position which they oc
cupy ns leaders has had a tendency to
cause them to lose sight of the object
behind the organization. The natural
Instinct in man for power and position
is in no small measure responsible for
the mistakes of the leaders , not neces
sarily in labor unions alone , but in
every branch of society. This desire
for power and leadership nnd personal
aggrandizement causes men who have
been earnest and sincere in their ef
forts in the start to deteriorate into
mere politicians whoso every act and
utterance Is tinged with the desire
to cater to the baser passions of the
working majority in the societies or
organizations and this is undoubtedly
true when npplled to tuo present lead
ers of the Federation of Labor. Wo
mention the Federation of Labor par
ticularly In this article , because that
organization is the only organization
of labor which has yet found Itself In
direct opposition to the laws of the
land. There nro other organizations of
labor whoso leaders have made mis
takes , but they have always kept them
selves and their organizations within
the bounds of the law and respected
the rights of every other man in con
sidering the rights of themselves and
their constituency ; whereas , the motto
of the Federation Is just the reverse ,
and unless the leaders conform them
selves and their organization in accord
ance with the laws of the land , the
leaders nnd the organization itself
must be disintegrated nnd pass into
history , for In America the common
sense of mankind is developed to n
greater extent thnn In any other nation
on the earth , and the people , who nro
the court of last resort in this country ,
will never allow any system to develop
In this country which does not meet
with the approval of the majority of
the citizens of the country.
"This must have forced itself upon
the leaders of the Federation by this
time. If it has not , the leaders must
bo eliminated. The organization which
they head has done many meritorious
things in times past and the people are
always ready and willing to acknowl
edge the benefits which their efforts
have brought to their constituency ns
a whole , but nt the present time labor
organlzntlons in general , and the Fed
eration of Labor in particular , stand
before the bar of public opinion , hav
ing been convicted of selfishness and n
disposition to rule all the people of
the country In the Interest of the few.
