the West Virginia Federation of
Labor in annual convention. The
resolution characterized Mr. Gom
pers as a tool of politicians and
declared that under his guidance
the federation was ' like a ship
without a rudder."
The resolution says:
"He (Gompers) has Rone con
trary to the policies of the Am
erican Federation of Labor, as
promulgated in tin national con
vention at Montreal. Therefore
the delegates or the West Virginia
Federation of Labor to the 1921

American Federation of Labor
will oppose any attempt to repeal
the system of excise of "luxury"
tax and substitute a sales tax. it
was declared today by the execu
tive council of the federation.
The council, it is understood,
regards any effort to substitute a
ales lax for the excise tax as an
attempt to shift the burden of tax
ation from capital to labor.

Officials explained that organ,
ized labor believes that the pres
ent system is more equitable.
They claim that the sales tax
would not only place the burden of
faxntio : on the workers, but
would add to the cost of living.
With the excise or luxury tax
repealed, labor officials said, the
manufacturer, merchant and other
big interests would be given a re
newed opportunity to profiteer.
The stand of the executive
council will be incorporated in
