V LABOR UNION IN
Says Petitions Prompted by
: "Radical I. W. W. and Bol
' : shevik Element in La- .
, In i statement given out yester
day Mayor Smith branded the pro-
: moteri of the recall petitions against
himself and Commissioners Ringer,
Ur and Towl, as "the radical, I. W.
W, bolshevik element in the labor
"The four men, who have been
named in the recall petitions against
Commissioners Ringer, Ure and
Towl and myself," he said, "repre
sent ideas of city government entire
ly different from those represented
by us. If the people of this city
want to turn their government over
to that kind of control, then Ringer,
Towl, Ure and myself should be re
called. That is exactly what it means
and the voters have a right to say
which class of representatives they
want in the city hall. I am willing
that the men and women should
. make their preference known at the
polls," his statement read,
v Classifies Petition Signers.
, ' The mayor made it clear that he
,' classified those who are behind the
recall movement as the "radicals, I.
,W. W. and bolsheviki of the labor
party," together with the "liquor
element,", and certain unnamed per
sons whom he insisted had been af
; fected financially because they have
lost control of the police depart
ment. "If Omaha wants a closed shop
industrially and a wide-open town
generally, I think that we should
be recalled," he insisted.
T. P. Reynolds, labor leader and
one of those who are named in the
recall petitions and who will submit
his name against Police Commis-
; sioner Ringer at the recall election,
declared that the mayor does not
apeak the truth when he designates
the recall advocates as I. W. VV.'s
"It's a lie," said Mr. Reynolds,
"and it is the same old story of an
official who has failed. We have
heard that kind of talk before and
know what it means. Everyone
Vho is opposed to Mayor Smith is
an I. W. W. or a bolshekik in
Resents Labor Statement.
Mr. Reynolds resented the
mayor's reference to a closed shop.
"Labor does not ask for a closed
shop at all," he added. "We are
asking only for a square deal and
that is something we have never
gotten from Mayor Smith. I agree
with the mayor when he admitted
in his recent letters to the commis
sioners that his administration had
been a failare and we do not want
; to follow his line of work. Yes, we
certainly have different ideas of
city government than the mayor
Denies Bolsheviki Talk,
jr Mr. Reynolds took issue with the
mayor on another point by deny
ing that there is any bolsheviki
representing labor in Omaha,
v .The Central Labor unnon is ab
solutely against the I. W. W.'s, the
bolsheviki and Mayor Smith," said
