"We presented to congress," says the let
ter, "measures that would, If enacted, so
far ss human law could do. make Impossi
ble the awful loss of life. We have sought
this remedy more In the Interest of the
traveling public than In that of the scu
men, but In vsln."
The document concludes:
The beneficent writ of Injunction Intended
to protect property rights line, ss used In
labor disputes, leen perverted so as to at
tack snd destroy personal freedom and In
a manner to hold that the employer hss
some property rights In the labor of the
workmen. Instead of obtaining the relief ,
which labor has sought It Is seriously
threatened with statutory authority for ex
isting Judicial usurpation.
The committee on labor of the house of
representatives was Instituted st the de
msnd of liibor to voice Its sentiments, to
advocate Its rights and to protect Its Inter
ests. In the past two congresses this com
mittee has been so orgnnized as to inske
Ineffectual any attempt labor has made for
Objects to an Order.
This being the fact. In the last congress
labor requested the speaker to appoint oil
the committee of labor mcmliera who. from
their experience, knowledge snd sympathy,
would render In this rongress such service
as the commute wss originally designed
to perform. Not only was labor's request
Ignored, but the hostile makeup of the
committee was accentuated.
Recently the president Issued an order
forbidding any and all government em
ployes, upon the pain of instant dismissal
from the government service, to pet "Ion
congress for any redress of grievance or
for any Improvement In their condition.
Thus the constitutional right of cliixens
to petition must be surrendered by the
government employe In order that he may
obtain or retain his employment.
We present these grievances because we
have long, patiently and In vain waited
for redress. There Is not any matter of
which we have complained but for what
we have in honorable snd lawful man
ner submitted remedies. The remedies for
these grievances proposed by labor nre in
line with fundamental law and with tho
progress and development mmle necessary
by changed Industrial conditions.
Labor brines thesf, its grievances, to
your attention because you are the repre
sentatives responsible for legislation or
for failure of legislation. The tollers come
to you as your fellow cltixens, wno, ny
renson of their position in life, have not
only with all other citizens an equal inter
est In our country, but the further Interest
of being the burden bearers, the wage
earners of America.
As labor representatives we ask you to
redress these grievances, for It is In your
power to do so.
Labor now appeals to you. ana we mini it
may not be in vain. Hut It, perchance,
you may not heed us, we shall appeal to
the conscience and tho support of our fel
low citizens. V'erv respectfully,

Reply of Speaker Cannon.
Speaker Cannon received the delegation
In the lobby of the house of representatives.
After President Gompcrs had read the
memorial, Speaker Cannon made a spee?n
in which he resented the charge of un
fairness against the house committee on
labor. "It Is Impossible for a committee
not. to have many men of many Ideas In Its
make-up," said the speaker. "I select th s
committee with all fairness. It is Impossi
ble for a caucus to select them, as thut
would consume a whole session. In your
annual meetings you doubtless find a great
variety of - opinion. If you don't have n
lot of damns I -miss my guess. No two men
have the same Ideas."
President Oompers replied to this state
ment by praising itepresoniaiive warun-;
of New Jersey, tho chairman of the home
committee on labor, and stated that other
members of the committee have not, In the
opinion of labor Interests, shown ordinary
intelligence In their treatment of matters
affecting labor. "The general policy or con
gress has been to Ignore the requests of
labor," President Gompers concluded.
