Up Over Charges
Washington, May 8 Assailing what
he described as a "despicable propa
ganda against labor,". Timothy Healy,
president of the Brotherhood of Sta
tionary Firemen and Oilers, charge
before the railroad labor board today
that "a high official of the govern
ment has been used to more thorough
ly deceive the people Into believing
that If a man works for wages he Is
an enemy of our government."
Mr. Healy did not name the official
to whom he referred but much of his
long prepared statement to the board
had to do With the announcement by
the department of Justice concerning
threatened strikes and violence last
May Day. '

ernment department being introduced
Into arguments before the board on
the demands of railway workers for
increased wages but Mr. Healy said
the men he represented were wrought
up over attacks on labor by govern
ment officials and that he had been
instructed to lay before the board -a
statement on. the loyalty of railroad
men. . - ,
Mr. Healy told the board that the
propaganda against labor began In
less than 24 hours after the signing
of the armistice. Labor was accused,
he declared, of being responsible for
the high oost of living.
"Many honest and sincere peoptc
have listened to the poisoned tongues
and read the output of poisoned pens
until they believe. that labor U dis
loyal," continued Mr. Healy. "The
crusade of this high government, of
ficial Is undoubtedly for the purpose
of aiding In the campaign of certain
employers of the country to secure
laws establishing involuntary servi
tude. "Sedition laws, were suggested th.it
would tie labor hand and foot."
Mr. Healy declared that May Day
had been selected as a day for "imag
inary terrible things to happen be
cause contracts of some unions cus
tomarily expired April 30."
"There is one peculiar thing about a
newspaper editor," Mr. Healy said.
"He believes everything he reads in
everybody else's paper and he never
changes his mind with the channel in
procedure 'of the labor movement."
Trade unions as they grew older,
he added,' had discovered that May ls
was not always a good time for their
agreements to begin, nevertheless, he
declared, newspaper editors continued
to speak of May Day strikes.
"This made them fall for the proi

spokesman. "Representatives of ull

Watson announced through his at
torney that he would plead guilty to
first degree murder and would not
attempt to establish insanity as a de
fense. He said, according to the at
torney, that he wanted or expected
was to escape the gallows.
Clemency Not Promised
, Even this boon is uncertain, ac
cording to both prosecution and de
fense; it was announced here recent
ly by W. C. Doran, chief deputy prose
cutor, that Watsen would be given a
sentence of life Imprisonment, if the I
district attorney's recommendation
prevailed with tile court, In consider

related to the officials in his first
confession a week ago.
Watson Gains Strength
However, District Attorney Wool
wine has never publicly assented to
Mr. Doran's statement, the defense
has never admitted that it has such
a promise, and even if one exists,
both sides admit, the Judge before
whom Watson must appear for sent
