Victor Rosewater, Robert Smith and
John Jj. Kennedy addressed a meeting of
the Douglas County Republican lcagu
at Barlght hall last night. Mr. Rose
water spoke of the Indication ot re
publican revival all over the country, and
discussed the southern representation to
Robert Smith urged the republicans to
attend the meetings of the leaguu and
keep in touch with the affairs of the or
ganization so that It wight not be
charged as usual in such organizations
that two or three members are running
the affair. He charged the democrats
with being incapable of dealing with the
tariff situation, and said, "We're stand
ing for a government strong enough to
give all the citizens Justice."
John I Kennedy spoke of the harmony
that now exists in the republican Party,
saying the party Is together now and
that it cannot be pulled apart. Touching
also on the democratic administration,
he said, "You cannot govern a country
on wrong principles. Tou can't govern
a country on good Intentions, but that Is
about all we have had for a while. He
declared It was the republican tariff that
had been the making of the western
country and he is afraid of the Argen
tine corn shipped into New York harbor.
"I'm tired of wish-washy legislation,"
he declared. "Talk about tariff for rev
enue only. Why, God bless you, it It
weren't for the Income tax and a few
other taxes they wouldn't even have
revenue." He gave President Wilson
credit for being a man of good intentions,
and being a scholarly man, but he was
sorry because the president Old not have
practical knowledge of the subject of
running a government.
Touching the Mexican situation he
found occasion to criticise and declared:
"If I had the army and navy at my

Say Union Agents
CHICAGO, June 26. Representatives
of the building contractors of Chicago
were directed by the United Btates dis
trict attorney to appear before the
federal grand Jury today with whatever
evidence they had that the contractors
had been systematically blackmailed by
agents of the labor unions. John J. Mc
Laughlin, state representative was ex
pected to be the principal witness on
behalf of the contractors.
Without accusing the labor unions,
which they say have been defrauded
and used as tools by dishonest business
agents, the contractors declare that
extortion of sums of J500 to $100,000 has
played a part In every large construc
tion Job In this city In recent years. The
demand for federal aid was precipitated
by the killing Wednesday ot George
Hammond, a union business agent, by
Patrick Dignan, a contractor.
DIgnan surrendered yesterday. He
told the police that he had been hounded
Labor leaders today declare that the
charges brought by McLaughlin and
others were fraudulent. It was a prac
tice of certain contractors, they said,
to attempt to bribe union agents to tie
up other contractors in strikes. In the
cross fire of frauds aiQ briber', the
labor men declared, the contractors were
active and profited more than did dis
honest union agents.
