RIGHTS OF LABOR
Attempt , to Change Conspir
acy Law Made by
TWO KENTUCKIANS ARGUE
fclierlcy Would Teach Teople to Obey
Laws, Not Disregard Them.
James Pleads for Strik
ers Kepi In Jail.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 11. A vigorous
fight was waged In the House of Repre
sentatives today over the bill' to codify
and revise the penal laws of the United
States with particular reference ' to sec
tion 19. affecting conspiracies against the
civil rights of citizens. Smith of .Mis
souri and Hughes of New Jersey offered
amendments having for their object the
exemption of labor unions from the opera
tion of the section whenever such unions
declare strikes or boycotts. A motion to
strike out the whole section was made
by Bartlett of Georgia. The brunt of
the debate was borne by Sherley of Ken
tucky, a member of the committee on re
vision, but he was supported by a "num
ber of Republicans.
The amendments were all lost, as was
one by I)e Armond to strike out section
20, because It conferred on Federal Courts
in punishing "felonies and misdemeanors
committed under' section 19 the authority
given to the courts of the state In which
the acts are committed.
One Concession to Strikers.
The only amendment successfully to
pass the gauntlet was one by Clark of
Missouri, striking out that portion of sec
tion 19 which provides for offenders the
additional punishment of ineligibility to
hold any office of honor, trust or profit
under the Government.
In anticipation of the debate and the
necessity for votes, the Republican lead
ers mustered their full strength and
thereby were enabled to vote down all
amendments which they deemed unreas
onable. The exceeding earnestness of the
debate led to the charge that there had
been a prearrangement. but this was de
nied. The' fact that many of the votes
taken during the somewhat stormy de
bate were almost strictly party votes was
declared by Democratic leaders to be In
cidental and not significant of any pre
concerted plan. It is likely that the dis
cussion of the hill on points of law will
be indulged from time to time for several
Mould Legalize Boycott.
When the House resumed consideration
of Ihe bill.' the pending business was an
amendment to section 19, providing that
in the matter of civil rights, the code shall
not embrace agreements by labor or trade
unions to settle peaceably strikes or. boy
cotts. It was regarded as of sufficient
importance to cause a call for all Re
publicans to be present. The amend
ment was suggested by -Smith, not by
Booher. as has been erroneously stated,
and the former offered a modi Heat ion of
his own provision so as to make it read:
'Nothing In this section shall embrace any
Krcemnla made by labor or tradtt unions
that shall result in or affect the declaring
of a strike or a boycott or any efforts in
the exercise of free speech made by such
labor or trade unions after such strike or
boycott shall have been declared, provided
ttiat such efforts were made in a peaceable
manner and provided further that they are
made for the purpose -of inducing nonunion
persons to act with them and against the
company or corporations against which the
strike or boycott has been declared, even
though such company 6 corporation be In
jured thereby in Its property rights.
Courts Suppress Labor's Rights.
Smith said he believed labor unions
had the lawful right to make contracts
declaring strikes, but It had been the
experience that whenever they did so,
they were barred by some court of
equity or some legislative enactment
for fear they might cause some incon
venience and annoyance to the public.
Therefore the efforts of strikers are of
ten suppressed by some court process.
The power of capital, he said, was
so great as to minimize and impair
every effort made in that direction.
Upon the supposition that the Smith
amendment would be held to be un
constitutional, Huehes. while remark.
ing that he was In sympathy "with It,
offered the following substitute, which
he thought would stand the test' of
judicial construction: "
Provided, however, that it shall not be un
lawful for two or more persons to enter an
agreement to leave or refuse to enter the
employ of any person, co-partnership or
corporation, or to advise, persuade or Induce
others to do so
Two Kentucklans at Repartee.
Strenuous opposition to both the
Smith amendment and th,e Hughes sub
si Utile came fronj Sherley who de
clared amid Republican applause that
any right guaranteed under the Con
stitution or any luw which is violated
by conxpiiacy or otherwise should be
"What we need in America," he said,
"Is to teach the people to obey the laws
and not to disregard them." The labor
ing man, he said, was entitled to his
rights, b it, he said, amid loud ap
plause, "the time has not come In this
country when any class of men are en
titled to special rights over any other
, Sherley became Involved in a brief
rulliuiuy with his colleague, James,
who'sald that District Judges had fre
quently decided against labor unions.
'And Circuit Courts of Appeals have
reversed district judges." responded
"And laboring men are kept in jail
until those courts are reversed,"
lames said, amid Democratic applause.
Debate Snuffed Out.
Moon of Pennsylvania objected to
any proposed amendments to organic
law as covered by the bill and moved
to shut off debate in ten minutes. This
aroused the opposition of the Demo
prats. ho forced a division .of the
House and then a vote by tellers,
which resulted favorably to ' Moon's
motion, 1 27 to 96.
A further amendment was then of
fered by Clark, striking out of sec
tion 19 the clause making Ineligible
to office under the Government alT
persons found .guilty of conspiracy to
deprive anyone of his constitutional
Williams of Mississippi remarked
that the law was the last relic of re
construction times. Further debate
on the subject was cut off. , The
amendment was agreed -to.
The reading of the bill was then
continued, and Cockran of New York
supported the Hughes amendment,- ar
guing that the section as It stool
would further embarrass the relations
of labor and capital. Both amend
ments were lost.
LITTLE MONEY FOR BUILDINGS
Impending Deficit Means ' Strict
Economy by Congress.
'Washington, Jan. 11. "The 50th
Congress has been in actual session only
a few days, and more than 600 bills al
ready have been introduced for the ex
penditure of about 80.000,000 in proposed
buildings. If 20 per cent of that total is
appropriated during the present session
the people of the country may consider
The foregoing statement was made yes
terday .by Chairman Bartholdt. of the
House committee on public buildings and
grounds. "Government revenues." . he
said,' "are falling short at the rate of
about Jb',000.000 a month, due to the cur
tailment of the luxury-purchases by the
people in this time of financial distress
and commercial depression. We feel sure
of a heavy deficit at the close oi the fiscal
year. The estimate of expenditures Tor
the fiscal year June 30, 1909, must be cut
down, as the chairman of the appropria
tions committee pointed out recently, and
original legislation, such as bills proposed
for the erection of public buildings and
the purchase of public grounds must be
held In with a tight rein. It Is true the
Government balance sheet shows a hand
some surplus of something like 250,000.000,
but it must be remembered that a. great
deal of that money is distributed among
the National banks and that they are not
at this time in a position to hand it over."
NEITHER BILL SATISFACTORY
Democratic . Committee Members
Want Hearings on Currency.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 11. The Demo
cratic members of the House committee
on -banking and currency held a meeting
for the discussion of the Fowler and
Aldrieh currency bills and voted unani
mously to support any motion for hearings
on both bills i-efore the full committee.
It was developed that all of the minority
members are opposed to the Aldrieh bill,
because it enlarges the policy of securing'
currency by the deposit of bonds. Some
of them also look with disfavor upon the
Fowler bill as too revolutionary in its
proposal of a complete retirement of ail
outstanding currency and the substitution
of a currency secured by National bank

Deficiencies in New York's
WATER TO EIGHTH STORY
Not Enough Pressure to Carry the
Stream Higher Engines Work
Under Vacuum Fire Has Good
Start Another Man Missing.
NEW YORK, Jan. 11. The fire in
the Parker building at Fourth avenue
and Nineteenth street last night, -which
cost the lives of four men and did
damage to the extent of $5,000,090, dem
onstrated some of the inefficiencies of
the New York Fire Department and the
Deputy Chief Binns said:
"The fact that the - fire gained great
headway was due entirely to the lack of
water. There are two twelve-inch mains
on Fourth avenue. There is no pressure
whatever. In the side streets there are
six-inch mains, and on Broadway there is
a 36-inch main.. But the pressure from
the Broadway main was more than half
lost as a result of the distance from the
fire. . (
"Many of the engines worked under a
five-pound vacuum Instead of 15 to 20
pound pressure, which is ordinarily
found in the street hydrants.
"It shows that at the present time in
New York." continued the deputy chief,
"the water towers cannot reajch above
the eighth floor. Because of the poor
water pressure,- the three water towers
responding to. the five alarms had to be
laid aside." -
For months the fire department has
been dreading a fire in a sky-scraper,
and although the Parker building was
only 13 stories in height the fate of one
of the modern buildings of twice that
height Is easily imagined from last night's
experience. The water pressure, even
when augmented by the force of the
largest engines In the. departmnt, was
not . sufficient to raise the water to a
point anywhere near the top of the
building. When the new salt-water high
pressure ' mains . are completed, officials
say this failure .will be no longer bo
Water Onlj.to Eighth Story.
The fire began on the sixth floor of the
building. Baffled by weak water pres
sure and bursting hose, the firemen
worked at a great disadvantage.. Water
could not be forced above the eighth
story. Falling floors cut off the escape
to the street not only for firemen but of
other occupants, and they were rescued
only by the most daring work. The foun
dations of the building abutted against
the subway, and the walls, bulging when
the steel posts and girders first expanded
and then contracted, threatened to fall
and crush the tube. All traffic In the
subway between Fourteenth street and
the Grand Central Station at Forty-second
street was suspended while the fire
was at Its worst in the early hours, but
was resumed during the height of the
early rush of passengers down town, only
to be suspended again under urgent or
ders of the fire and building departments.
For hours after the fire was practically
extinguished it was still dangerous to
run trains by the building, and subway
passengers were forced to resort to the
elevated and surface cars. ' -
Another Man Missing.
Robert Boyer. a printer employed on
the fifth floor of the Parker building,
was reported missing today. " He was
at work in the building when the fire
started and has not since been seen.
The fire was officially declared to be
under control soon after 7 o'clock, but
Deputy, Chief Binns warned the police
to keep crowds as far away as possi
ble from the wrecked building, as there
was great danger that it might col
lapse as a result of the contraction ot
the steel girders as they cooled. This
resulted in a complete tie-up of the
Fourth-avenue trolley line, and it was
not expected that any cars would go
over the Eighteenth-street crossing
during the day. - ft
The subway service, which had been
resumed during the early rush hours,
was suspended shortly after 9 o'clock
owing to fear of the officials that the
wrecR of the Parker building might
collapse and crash through Into the
underground tube. After that hour no
trains were run between Grand Central
station at Forty-second street and
Fourth avenue and Fourteenth street.
From information -given by the occu
pants of the surrounding buildings it Is
believed that the fire was in progress
fully an hour before It was discovered.
Superintendent Fullerton, of the Ameri
can Lithographic Company, directly
across the street from the burned
building, said today that fully an hour
before the alarm was given he smelled
smoke and- had a thorough, search
made on every floor of his building.
An hour later the firemen were in
possession of one of the upper floprs
of the American Lithographic Company
turning a flood of water on the Parker

The sale of that great newspaper, the

the -publisher of cheap magazines, the
founder of the half-penny Daily Express'
and recently the purchaser of the famous
Tory organ, the Standard, and the St.
James' Gazette, which has been merged
with the likening Standard, suggests a
train of moralizing that we shall en
deavor to avoid.
It is perfectly clear, though, that if the

That the new director represents also the
