MOB SPIRIT IN ORGANIZED LABOR
Prealdeat of the national Aasocla

Aaetber Paper ea the Line

CHAUTArQUA, N. T., Aug. U.-D. M.
Parry, president of the National Associ
ation of Manufacturers, today delivered
one of the most Important addresses be
fore the conference on the "Mob Spirit
In America." Mr. Parry spoke on "Mob
spirit In Organised Labor."
He said In part:
In this country In the last year there
have been many mobs of different klnda,
but to my mind the most dungoroua of
them is the mob ot organised labor- No
man, 1 take It, can object to any kind ot
an association, which is organised lor law
ful and beneficent purponex, but organised
labor, aa it la couducted today, eland
oonvioted by Its own leaders aa a, lawless
Balls Aaalaat the Laws.
In that It seeks by physical force to
override Individual rights and its con
tinually railing agaiuat the laws and
denouncing courts anu pub.lo officials fur
enforcing theae laws, it fulfills all the
requirements of the definition of moboo
racy. Unlike the lynching bees and the
vicilanoe committees 11 la what minht be
termed a standing mob, under fair
discipline by Its officers, and ready upon
occasion to commit the overt aula of out
rage and destruction which are the out
ward manifestation of the mob spirit.
It declares, in effect, that Its will in
superior to customs, traditions, govern
ment regulations ana even me consucuuon
of the country, it asserts that the In
dividual baa no inherent rights that can
not be taken from him and that, there
fore. It has the right to say that no man
shall work and that no Industry ahall run
without Us consent.
Depends Vpoa Intimidation. ,
In Its attempt to compel a recognition
of its pretensions to sovereignty It relies
not on reaaon, but upon misrepresentation,
Intimidation and the bludgeon. In its oon-
tlnual preachments against law and Its
constant appeal to the baser passions of
men, it Is doing more than any other
agency to Inculcate the mob spirit and to
encourage the unfurling of the red flag of
The president of the Chicago Federation
ef Labor, recently declared In an Interview:
"The president deals a dath blow to
organized labor when he declares that he
cannot discriminate In Its favor. It sounds
fair on the raoe of it, but without dis
crimination we are Just where we started.
What we have been fighting for Is union
labor to the exclusion of all other."
These are the words of a conversation
among union laborers and they voice the
aentlment of the agitators the country
over. To their mind If you deny the right
of their organisation to commit Illegal
aota, you are attempting to crush it. If
organised labor has only lawless purposes
It ought to be crushed.
Weald Set ap aa Oligarchy.
During' the last year, the attemnts to
force men to give allegiance to striaes In
their plans to set Up an ellgarohy that will
control Industry, independent of the laws
of the country, have resulted in mob con
ditions In many of the leading centers.

on. It is time that the workmen of this
country were learning that in the millions
of dollars In salaries they pay to agitators,
they are creating In return nothing but
ceaseless trouble, enforced Idleness, and
loss of the comforts of life. They are also
bidding for the destruction of their most
precious possession that of Industrial lib

mighty poor investments.

Thomas I... Kldd,.' vice preside 'ot the

discussion.. He asserted that the leaders

their childhood and their experiences in
later life with the company store and the
other evidences of greed and power ar
rayed against them.
Mr.. Kldd Insisted, however, that the
percentage of riots In labor troubles Was
small, saying that records of 25,000 strikes
In seven years show less than 1 per cent
attended by riots. He did not believe Mr.
Parry correctly represented the employers
of the country. ,
"The employment of detectives and agents
who excite the men to violence," said Mr.
Kldd. "places much responsibility on cer
tain employers." The lawlessness of the
few, be insisted, should not obscure the
good oltlsenship of the majority of the
"The employer claims) the right to conduct
his own business," he continued, "and the
union insists on the right to pass Judgment
on conditions under which the work was
done. The bribe-taking unionist is no more
guilty than the bribe-taking employer."
The feeling between union and nonunion
men was not surprising owing to the great
benefits secured by the saorilloe ot the few.

SAYS THE CONTRACT WAS EROKEN

Faalt Is Not All on
WASHINGTON, Aug. lJ.-The. Interna
tional Typographical union began Its ses
sion today with a sharp controversy over n
motion to distribute a pmophlot prepared
by the Newspaper Publishers' association
lt crltlolsm of the union's conduct during
the printers' strike ut Boattlo and Spokane,
Objection was made to the circulation of
the pamphlet on the ground that It did
not bear the union label, but President
Lynch made an earnest appeal for Its ac
ceptance, and his request was granted by
a decided vote. The convention then. In
accordance with a resolution adopted yes
terday, listened to an addrcas by Frederick
Driscoll, chairman of the Publishers' as
sociation, relative to the strikes in the
state of Washington. He disclaimed re
sponsibility for the printing of the pub
lishers' circular without a label, and thon
proceedod to read a formal statement,
which wan a sharp criticism of the union
and of President Lynch,
Peace I'nder Arbitration Flaa.
Mr. Driscoll said that continuous Indus
trial peace had been enjoyed for more
than two years under the plan of arbitra
tion adopted by the association and the
union, and until the occurrence of the two
strikes at Spokane and Seattle, which he
characterized as "Inexcusable," contend
ing that the reasons put forth to Justify
these strikes are untenable. He said that
"if arbitration had been adhered to ac
cording to the obligations of our agree
ment thore would have been no strike or
disturbance of our friendly relations."
Continuing, he said:
The national board of arbitration should
have been organised aa provided in the
contract, in each of the too cases. That
boatd. If it had found prior lrregularltltiea
for even frauds; If publishers or unions
i.ad aaked for consideration of subjects
not allowed in the contract, to take and
posses a necessary power to annull
and wipe out all previous proceeding and
begin anew from the Inception of the
Issues raised and give an award which
would be accepted by all parties In In
terest. Not a Pleasant Duty.
He said hla was not a pleasant duty to
criticise the president and executive council
of the union, and added:
But as a friend of your organlztlon, as
a representative cf our usaoc.ntlon. as
a man and a citizen, I am obliged to enter
my proteat against these gross violations
of our arbitration contract.
Referring to the two cases at Issue, and
stating his contentions respecting them,
Mr. Driscoll said the existing agreement
should be respected and tbe publishers at
Spokane and Seattle restored to tU?
statu guo existing before the strike, and
that they should proceed under the terms
of the existing contract to arbitrate and
finally settle the differences.' He closed
with an appeal to the union to do what
he regarded as its duty.
Prlscoll's Speech Applauded.
. Mr. Drisooll's speech waa received with
applause and the chair announced that.lt
would ba referred to the committee on ar
bitration He added that when tho com
mittee reports he would make a statement
In which be hoped to be able to show that
the merits, of tbe Washington, controversy
are not all' on one side.'
'The convention then listened to an - ad
dress by Martin P. Hlgglns, president of

Assistants' union. Mr. Hlgglns said that
he had boen at one time a member of the
Typographical union and, referring to Mr.
Drisooll's address, said he knew when all
the facta were brought out It would be
question aa to who had broken the contract
in connection with the Washington strike.
An address also was made by Collis P.
Lovelace, prealdent of the Boot arid Lhoe

Its uniform support of his own organisa

of the organization of employers snd wel

amount of disturbance, "yet," he contended,
"there Is an element In those organizations
which falls utterly to understand the pur
poses of unionism and which Is therefore
calculated to Injuriously effect the best
Interests of all."
He declared that no effect to destroy
unionism could succeed, and said that ex
tremists on the side of employers can be
compared only to Herr Most.
