We cannot afford to lose the virtues
which made the men of '1 to '66 great 1n
war. No man ia warranted In feeling pride
in the deeds of the army and navy or the

letup In the work of building, and of keep
ing at the highest point of elllclenry. a
navy suited to the part the United Btatrs
must hereafter play In the world, and of
making and keeping our small regular

can never be anything but the nucleus

to be found among the nations.

CHICAGO, Oct 16. Employers and labor
representatives of national reputation were
In attendance today, In Stelnway hall, at
the opening session of the National Civic
federation conference, which Is to discuss
and debate questlona affecting wage earner
and capitalist. In an effort to better rela
tions between them and to right Industrial
William D. Mahon, president of the
Amalgamated Association of Street Rail
way Employes; Samuel Gompers, John
Mitchell and S. S. McClure of New York
were among those present at the gather
ing, which waa called to order by Judge
A. N. Waterman, president of the Chicago
branch of the Clvlo federation.
Capital waa also represented, as was the
farmer, T. F. Woodlock, editor ot a New
York financial paper; Oscar 8. Strauss,
president of the New York Board of Trado
and Transportation, and John M. Stahl,
who will represent the agriculturalists, be
ing In attendance.
Mr. Strauss waa Introduced and presided
at today's session. He spoke on "How to
Establish Better Relations Between Em
ployer and Employes," advocating con
servatism in dealing with labor troubles.
Value of Trade lalona.
He said In part:
The value of trade unions in raising the
standard of living and In guarding the in
terests of labor. In Tegulating the hours
and conditions of work, are benefits which
organisation has unquestionably promoted.
The great hope of our Industrial future
is that the working classes, whose powers
for good and for evil have been so strength
ened by organisation, will be guided by en
lightened principles, and abstain from
seeking benefits In contravention of un
doubted economic experiences and at the
ooet of fundamental rights.
To the extent they mlsuoe their great
power, of arbitrarily curtailing the rlghta
or tneir reiiow laborers or their employers,
they array themselves agalnBt public sen
timent, and from that day their nower and
their usefulness will decline. VEven If labor
organisations comprised the entire number
of .wage workers In the country, this would
give them no right either to override the
personal liberty of thoie within or beyond
their ranks, or to Inxist upon special priv
ileges or immunities.
Mnst Rely Ipsa Jnatneaa.
They must rely upon the justness of
their cause and to the extent force is used,
the boycott or the bludgeon In compelling
others to unite with them, to that extent
they negative their own cinlm to being a
brotherhood organization, whose purpose
Is to elevate and benefit the wage earning
class. Hut, as a matter of fact, while labor
organization are very strong In some In
dustries, they Include only about 15 per
cent of the wage earners of the country,
and It must not be forgotten that organi
sation, however powerful, can give no
rights to curtail the personal liberty of
the remaining 85 per cent of the wage
earners of the country.
While the rreatlv Increased ors-nntxAtlon
of both laborers and employers Is ,x fact
wnicn must ie taKen into consideration In
discussing the Industrial future. It must not
be overlooked that, however powerful theaa
great Interests mav grow, thev ran onlv
embrace a fraction ot the people In any
The general public Is greater and many
times more numerous than these two
powerful bodies combined, and upon it
mufct fall the heaviest losses that grow out
of Industrial war. The general public Is
patient, long suffering and enduring. Ita
only organization Is the general govern
ment, municipal, state and national, for the
-protection of the public welfare.
Demands of the Pkhlir.
'Public'' opinion 'demands that' the great
punuc service corporations not only shall
perform their functions, but also they ehall
not be obstructed in that performance, and
it also demands that the great avenues of
supply and distribution of the necessities
of life shall not be arbitrarily cut off In
order td test-the relative strength and en
during powers of the contending forces.
Organised labor and organised capital are
In a formative state. They are new to their
acquired power. With time and experience
a reaction in favor of conservatism will
make Itself felt, and In the meantime con
ciliation will help tather than hinder a
ttiore reliable and permanent remedy.
President Mitchell's Views.
President Mitchell, in opposing the open
By a refusal to work with nonunion men
labor organisations occasionally excite
acute Irritation among employers and In
vite grave criticism from press and public.
To refuse to work with nonunion men Is
to- no greater and to no less extent com
pulsion than for a life or fire Insurance
company to refuse certain classes of people
or for any association whatsoever to set
conditions under which It will have deal
ings with certain persons. The compulsion
exerted by unions, whether toward non
unionists or employers, must be judged
upon Its merits, and must- not be decried
merely because of Its compulsion.
The majority of nonunlonlats are not ma
licious, only at the worst stupid and apa
thetic However, there Is one group of
nonunlonJsta, the professional strike break
ers, but little removed from the criminal
classes. I do not mean to say that every
strike breaker Is a criminal. Some of theve
professional atrlke breakers are former
unionists, men who have been dishonorably
discharged from the union, cashiered for
conduct unbecoming a unionist. If not ao
tually indicted for defalcations or other
offenses &gaint tha law. Others have never
been In a union and have never been defiled
or contaminated by work.
With the progress of trades unions and
their growth In strength there will prob
ably be a lesenlng in the intensity of feel
ing sgilnst the nonunlonlst, but no lessen
ing In the pol'cy of exclu-lon
Tn conclua'on. I believe that trades Unions
have a perfect legal right and moral rlirht
to exclude nonunionlets, but that this right
shall be exercised with the utmost care and
only after persuasion.
