Secretary of Federation Says
Gary Can Not be Very Solicitous-
of Men's Welfare.
DENVER, June 14 ( J. I. O'Sulll

Uibor leaders cite the working condi

attacks on them 1y E. H. llary, head
of the inited States steel corporation.
Krank Morrison, secretary of the fed
eration, declared that more credence
would be placed on Gary's remarks
' should he allow his men to organize
for their betterment, let them work
eight hours a day Instead of twelve
and pay good wages Instead of cut
ting them at the first opportunity.
"Gary can not he very solicitous of the
men's welfare," declared .Morrison,
answering the Gary speech before the
students of the Syracuse university,
when he forces them to work long j
hours and ruts their wages."
Tho labor convention marked t'me
while the' committees framed resolu

opposing the re-election of Samuel

yesterday was generally approved and
absolutely solidified his position as a

In such a category as this, hut veteran
members of the Grand Army of the
Republic who are in Pendleton for
their annual state encampment are
forming Just that sort of a club. The
qualifications are not determined by
who can tell the biggest II-mt, fib
now. Rut the men who can belong are
thosa who added a year, or two, or
three, or maybe more to their ages
when they enlisted In the l:nlnn army.
The legal age was IS for entrance,
but there were a lot of men who fought
In the wsr who lacked a lot of being
that old when they held up their
right hands and took the oath that
bound them, body and soul, to the
cause of the North in the great con
fllct,. Veterans smile now when accused
of having sworn falsely to their age
when they enlisted,
"I guess I'm guilty,'' confessed R.
M. Abbott, now senior vice-commander
of the Oregon department. ,"I was
only sixteen, but I Rot In and saw a
lot of service."
George H. Perkins of Monmouth
who saw service as a member of the
49th Wisconsin Infantry admitted
that there was one time in his life
when he "doctored" the truth the least
"I was Just a little past IB," he sn'd.
W. H. Hay of Forest Grove enlisted
