THE ADAMSON LAW
Former Progressive Leader
Tells South Side Men Real
'J, Meaning of Act.
WILSON GAVE UP EIGHTS
"The president committed an unfair
and illegitimate act when . he' sur
rendered under pressure to the rail
road brotherhoods, by ordering the
passage of the Adamson wage-raising
act." was a itatement made by Ray
mond' Robins, the distinguished labor
student and speaker, and member of
the republican national advisory coun
cil in an address last evening at
Franek's hall. South Side. t
He strdck out from the shoulder tn
his attack ort the Adamson bill and
al.urrf fhrtn 9 fttahll. ffnVfmmflll
i ' is weakened by auch a surrender on
t ' the part of the executive branch of the
national government to one class
group without first investigating the
tnerits.oT the case or recognizing the
valuable principles of arbitration. On
this subject he said:' 1
"I telieve that Do group of Amerl
can cjifzens shauld be opposed to the
principle) f rbitration and I take
vigorpns exceptions to the president
upon the wanner in which he made
his proposition to the railroad presi
dent . during :the' recent threatened
railroad strike.'" " V '
; - Wage Railing Bill,
"life his advocacy elf the Adamsoa
bill tHe president did not contemplate
an eight-hour day .on a. single railroad.
He was; merely, raising the present
ten-hour -basis to an eight-hour basis,
and, fapon anylsls it is evident that the
bill is a wage-raising proposition with
out considering the rights of the ship
pingjpublic or.the general public. The
' bill ;does not change, the working
hours of any railroad man, it does not
liimVthe time of, service.,
"T)he president' hurt the social and
economic future of the country. The
' bill a& blow struck at the principle
1 of arbitration, which is the most vital
principle of working but the social and
economic problems) Arbitration is the
method' of civilization and of peace,
as obpp'sed to the .method of civil war.
"CSilekens will come home to roost.
Let (US' consider this a moment; 'The
president said arbitration was un-
. necessary ,for the brotherhoods. Two
weelts-Jater President Shonts of the
Interborough lines in New York an-
. nouneed that inasmuch as the presi
dent has Said arbitration was not ne
cessary for the railroad workers, then
it is; not. necessary for the directors of
the Jqterborough lines. Twenty-four
houf after the passage of the Adam-
: son' 1il the president vf a great rail
road sompany said he would not obey
this taw of the United States. He felt
that the government had been used in
the Interests of one class, as against
another class. ; ,
"J(f any political or labor group can
usefUe government in this manner,
it opens the door for highly influ
ential,, capitalistic group to use the
gotpcment in a similar manner, Labor-loses
much wheii it loses the-fcen-,
ennV public copfidence. The government-of
all of the people should not
bertiMed for any class group. This
ac0on of the president was a costly
surrender of the rights of the whole
peorilc to the demands of a group,
wljen you hare a government that
. vvilU order a revolutionary statute
, paed in a few hours you face a dan
ger, Thai national government which
v.-unld thus surrender under pressure
shoajiid be disputed. ;
. vJ Another Way Out.
"The president should have" asked
congress for authoiity to cope with
the -situation, and he should have been
granted such authority. He should
i,-.. havpold the presiden of the' rail
roads and the men of the brother
hoods that arbitration is the method
of &ilreation and if eitiier aide re
fused ito recognise arbitration, then
he would use the power of the federal
govatrtment to run the railtoads for
theifltare of the general ptsMic".
Inv' S'ubVort of the candidacy of
Charles. E. Hughes Mr. Robins caid:

tions which he demonstrated in h
official life. He is the man who is
able to unite all sections of the coun
try against the present administration.
He has shown himself to be a great
executive and is an exemplar of hon
esty and efficiency. Every working
man is interested in honesty and ef
ficiency in public service. He appeals
to the people as a man opposed so
boss rule, as was evidenced when he
fought the invisible government when
he was governor of his own state.
. A Real Progressive.
"A change in the social and eco
nomic system of this country is neces
sary and I am confident that Hughes
will be the man who will accomplish
that change. He is a real progres
sive and is a candidate who appears
before the people without pre-nomina-tion
entanglements. I was in Chi
cago at the time of the convention
and I know there was no Hughes
headquarters there. Mr. Hughes is
a man who knows what should be
done and how it should be done, ac
cording to the law and constitution
of the land. As governor he was
close to the heart of labor, and he is a
man in whom labor can place the up
most confidence. I submit his labor
record to all thoughtful men."
. .. ' America Must Lead. ' T ;
Mir. Robins drew a picture of the
changed world conditions which will
confront this country at the close of
the ; European war. He said that
America must furnish the leadership
of the world in this great democratic
advance and the great democrato pur
pose of the world.
i "The rank and file of the republican
party gives the best hope for the so
lution of our social and economic
problems and of meeting the great
problems of the future," he said.
He reviewed the changes of social
and industrial life which have been
wrought during the last thirty years.
He referred to a new situation call
ing for new statemanship of firm pur
pose. He told of the transition of
American life from the old and simple
forrn of individualistic activities to the
present-day complex system with
lane coroorations employing thou
sands of men, and the owners and divl
rectors in most instances living many
miles from the source of their earn
ings. He ' said that politics has
changed; that every home today is
more interested in politics than ever
before, and that the people in this
country are dealing with politics as a
. Asks Political Integrity.
- "The . ' progressive movement is
over." declared Mr,. Robins, "and its
work is done insofar as a third party

integrity in this country and said he
was interested in politics because of
his home, family and his country.
The meeting was held under the
auspices of the South Side Hughes
and Fairbanks club. Mr. Robins made
an effective impression upon his audi
ence. f Attempt at Disturbance.
A gang of rough-house democrats
attempted to create a disturbance be
fore the meeting was called. , Two
liquor-laden leaders of the gang be
came so demonstrative that a police
man had to be summoned to quiet
them. During the meeting several
committed petty annoyances, which
prompted Mr. Robins to announce
that those who did not like the meet
