DENVKR. Colo., Oct. 8. "I have told
the officers of the Colorado Fuel &
Iron Company and the miners employed
by the corporation that there is" one
thing which must never happen again
that la a strike. A strike is wantonly
wasteful of human life and property;
no party ih benefited, but all parties
are harmed, including the public and
This was the statement of John D.
Tlockefeller, Jr., in an address before
the Denver Chamber of Commerce to
day. Mr. Rockefeller was the guest of
honor at the weekly luncheon of the
Credit t-lvrn Elder Rockefeller.
Referring to the many expressions
of friendship he has received during
his three weeks in Colorado, Mr. Rocke
"These I have accepted as intended
partially for myself, but mostly for my
fHther, whose representative I am. My
father has been for many "years a good
friend of the fc-tate of Colorado. His
confidence In the future of the state
has been shown by his placing of con
siderable sums of money in the Colo
rado Kuel & Iron Company. On the
common stock of that company he
never has received one cent in divi
dend, but he has not lost faith in the
future of Colorado."
jV Bitterness Is Kelt.
Mr. Rockefeller declared his father
was the tendorest, the most democratic
of men, and related several Incidents
of the dealings of the elder Rockefeller
with his workmen.
"Criticised, maligned and condemned
these many years, not only for his
business success but also because of
his philanthrophic endeavors, there still
is not the slightest trace of bitterness
in his character and he holds nothing
but good will for all men," said the
"Whatever I am or may be, I owe to
piy sainted mother and my honored
The speaker then referred to his
testimony in 1914 before the Congres
sional committee which investigated the
Colorado coal miners' strike.
"My statement," he said, "that I be
lieved in the freedom of every Ameri
can workingman to work for whom
he pleased, upon such terma as he
pleased, frequently has been misrep
resented. The inference sometimes
lrawn from it that my father and I are
fighting organized labor is untrue."
Relief In Vnlous Aiwrrtrd.
Mr. Rockefeller read extracts from
his testimony beforo the federal Com
mission on Industrial Relations, in
which he declared his belief in labor
unions, "provided they were so or
ganized as to leave every worker free
to associate himself with such groups
or to work independently."
The extracts concluded with a state
ment that the interests of both labor
and capital must be conserved or both
"It is upon that last declaration that
the industrial plan accepted by our
company and its employes has been
developed,", Mr. Rockefeller declared.
"In contrast with the spirit of co
operation which animates that plan, is
the spirit which too often is seen in
the most common forms of organized
lubor with which we are most familiar.
There labor and capital are enemies
and success to one comes only through
harm to the other.
Spirit of nrmcirr.ry Felt.
"We cannot hope to prosper until
labor and capital ioin hands. A spirit
cf democracy underlies our industrial
plan, as contrasted with the plan which
is in common usage among other or
Kanlzations of labor, where only those
who elect to join the organization are
entitled to its benefits.
"We shall try to administer this plan
o that there may never come a day in
which may be repeated the industrial
disorders which have too often come
in the affairs of this company and
ether companies of the state."

Returning yesterday from San Fran

emphatically, regarding the support of
the present steamship service which is
afforded. He said:
The steamships Great Xorthera and North
ern Pacific are certainly two fine boats.
They are modern in every respect and excel
all other steamships on this Coast. Port
land should appreciate far more than she
does what it means to have this excellent
service between Flavel and San Francisco.
The people of Portland and , vicinity
should support the service in every war pos
As a result of the service much money is

with the exposition drawing to a close, it
oenooves me people of this city to patron

by travel whenever they can do so.
Portland generally must wake up to the
importance of shipping. Her people must
learn that nothing will contribute so much
to her growth and to her prestige as will
larger shipping developments.
It will help every phase of Portland's life
and growth to have more traffic on the Co

CHICAGO MAYOR BILLED
CHAMBER NOT ACTISG ON ACCOUNT
OP POLITICAL ASPECT.
Rotary Club Will Be Hont to Mr.
Thompson Tursday and Republi
cans Anked to Dinner.
William Halo Thompson, the Mayor
of Chicago, who, among other things,
locked the streetcar officials and the
strikers representatives in his room and
men threw the key out of -the window,
telling them to settle it then and there;
the man who put the lid on Chicago's
Sunday drinking and the man who is
bobbing up as a Presidential aspirant
on the Republican ticket, will reach
Portland Tuesday on the Shasta Limi
ted, accompanied by 20 Chicago Alder
men and six Commissioners.
Mayor Thompson's visit to Portland
will have a political significance and
consequently the Chamber of Commerce
will give no special attention to his
coming, more than to welcome him as
a distinguished citizen. On the other
hand, however, the Rotary Club of
Portland will be the official host of
Mr. Thompson and his party and in his
honor has arranged a dollar dinner to
be served in the Chamber of Commerce
main dining-room. It is expected be
tween 400 and 500 will be present.
Mr. Thompson has asked that the
entertainment arranged for him permit
some political conversation. The Rotary
Club, according to the local president,
Fred Spoeri, is arranging to have the
Republican County and State Central
Committees represented: the Governor
of Oregon and his official family. Mayor
and Commissioners of Portland and
others interested in hearing Mayor
Thompson, attend. The Illinois So
ciety is arranging to send a large dele
gation to the dinner also.
The Mayor and his party will leave
Portland late Tuesday night.

The Christian Peace Association

The scope of the work of the asso
ciation, as outlined by a folder issued,
is as follows:
"The association is not wastinir anv
of its forces advocating disarmament.
Nor does it oppose military training in
the public schools. The association
does not oppose nor resist anything. It
overcomes. The only way to settle the
world's disputes is to remove their
causes. Then there will be no dis
putes. Economic justice is the solution
of them all."
