Answer Muster Call . V
Saturday the bovs answered to the
call of muster, and it's the one forma
tion that is ntrei into, hert and
soul. For muster means to the Sam

means to the laborer and mechanic.
In other words, muster should be
spelled "m-o-n-e-y.M And when the

Washington, Sept, 8. Dudley
Field Malone, customs collector at
New York, tendered hit resignation
to President Wilson today in pro
test against the failure of the presi
dent to advocate passage of the fed
eral suffrage amendment and be
.cause he permitted the imprison
ment of women who have been
picketing the White House.
Counsel for Pickets.
Mr. .Malone, who as counsel de
fended the first of the militants ar
raigned in police court here, told the
president in his letter of resignation,
that, inasmuch as he had promised
the women of the suffrage states that
he would exert all his energy to have
the national democratic administra
tion endorse suffrage by constitu
tional amendment he felt obliged to
resign and devote himself to redeem
ing that promise.
In quitting the office of collector of
the port of New York Mr. Malone
leaves one of the best paid places in
the government service. He is a son-in-law
of former Senator O'Gorman.
' After detailing his experiences in
campaigning for Wilson in the auf
frage states, where the democratic
party's negative attitude toward euf
frege was a most difficult argument
to meet, Mr. Malone continues his
JetWr of resignation at follows;
"The present policy of the admin
istration, in permitting splendid
American women to be sent to jail
in Washington, not for carrying of
fensive banners nor for picketing, but
on the technical charge of obstruct
ing traffic, is a denial even of their
constitutional right to petition for,
and demand the passage of, the fed.
eral suffrage amendment It, there
fore, now becomes my profound obli-
gation actively to keep my promise
to tne women ot tne west.
Cites England'! Example,
"In more than twenty states it is a
practical impossibility to amend the
constitutions, so the women of those
states can only be enfranchised by
the passage ot the federal suffrage
amendment, since England and Kus
sia in the midst of the great war have
assured the national enfranchisement
of their women, should we not be
jealous to maintain our democratic
leadership in the world by speedy na
tional enfranchisement of American
Time Men Hcbed Out.
"It seems a long seven years, Mr,
President, since f first campaigned
with you when you were running for
governor of New Jersey, In every
circumstance throughout those years
I have served you with the most rc-
specttui attection and unshadowed de
votion. It is no small sacrifice now
for me, as a member! of your ad-
ministration to sever our political re
lationshlo. But I think it is hisrh time
that men in. this generation, at om
cost to themselves, stood up to battle
for the national enfranchisement of
American women. .So in order ef
fectively to keep my promisee made
in the west and more freely to go into
this larger field of democratic effort,
I hereby resign my office as collector
of the port of New York, to take ef
icci at once, or at your earnest con

tion of Principles,
Minneapolis, Minn., Sept, 8. The
American Alliance for tabor and De
mocracy, organized three weeks ago
with President Wilson's stamp of ap
proval, concluded its big loyslty con
ference here tonight with the election
of officers and the adoption of a dec
laration of principles.
The alliance, composed of the na
tion'! labor leaders and havine? a it
double vurpose the crushing of dis-
loyaity ano tne solidifying of labor in
the war for democracy, elected as its
leader Samuel Gompers, president of
the American Federation of Labor.
A committee was appointed to ex
tend aid and encouragement to new
Russia. It is composed of Mr. Gom-r
Ders. Frank P. Walsh. Tnhn Snarim
former member of the executive com
mittee of the socialist party, and James
Uunean and Charles Edward Russell,
the latter two members of the Ameri
can mission to Russia.
The declaration of principles of the
alliance in part follows:
"The American Alliance of Labor
and Democracy, in its first national
conference, declares . its unswerving
adherence to the cause of democracy,
now assailed by the forces of auto
cracy and militarism. As labor union,
ists, social reformers and socialists,
we pledge our loyal support and serv
ice to the United States government
and its allies in the present world
' "We declare the one overshadowing
issue is the preservation of the
democracy. Either democracy will en
dure and men will be free or auto
cracy will triumph and the race will
be enslaved. On this price issue we
take our stand. We declare that the
great war must be fought to a decisive
result, that until autocracy Is defeated
there can be no hope of an honorable
peace, and that to compromise the is
sue is only to sow the seed for blood
ier and more devastating wars in the
"We strongly denounce the words
and actions of those enemies of the
republic who falsely assuming to
speak in the name of labor and
democracy are striving to obstruct
the operations of the government.-"
"Believing that the material inter
ests of the nation's soldiers and sail
ors and of their dependent! should-be
withdrawn from the realm of charity
and chance, and that health and life
should be. fully insured, we indorse
the soldiers' and sailors' insurance
bill now before congress.
"We declare for universal equal
suffrage, . .. . , .
"Inspired by the ideals of liberty
and justice herein declared as a funda
mental basis or national policies, the
American Alliance for Labor and De
mocracy makes its appeal to the.
workingmen and women of the United
States and calls upon them to unite
in unanimous support of the. president
and the nation for the prosecution of
the war and the preservation of
democracy." ' ' :.
