,-'4 ROBINS DISCUSSES 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. WhatBltample Did. "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.

"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: ..' "I am -for .Hughes as a candidate in '17 ?', ymmm m w The Brambach ' : jf.

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 social concern. . Asks Political Integrity. - "The . ' progressive movement is over." declared Mr,. Robins, "and its work is done insofar as a third party "See How Tbtt Corn Comes Clear Off!" "GETS-IT" Lo.o.

He bespoke political 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 ing might retire. I know the spi spirit of men. Those stated Mr. Robins. Eight or ten of the gang left without having accom plished their purpose, of "starting something." ' The Best Laxative.
