America has no peasantry.
America has no class set apart, mark
ed apart, definitely classified as being
apart and Irrevocably fixed as apart
from the great mass of her people.
America has no class from which it Is
impossible to merge.
America is distinguished throughout
the world by the high standard of liv
ing which the masses of her people en
Joy. The comparison Is sharp and dis
tinct. For this, the American trade-union
Is primarily responsible. America has
no proletariat as Europe knows the
proletariat
In the beginning, this was because of
the manner In which our country was
settled and because of its boundless
natural resources. It has remained so
primarily because of the trade-union
movement.
For this. If for no other service, the
trade-union movement of the United
States is entitled to be ranked aa one of
the country's greatest assets, If not,
Indeed, as the greatest asset of all.
The growth of the trade-union move
ment has substantially paralleled the
growth of the machine or factory sys
tem. With the coming of steam and
the subsequent coming of electricity
and the use of these agencies of pow
er In the development of factory life,
the tendency of Industry was to concen
trate populations in small areas and
tendency of employers was to keep
these coneentrttted populations, so faf
as possible, at a mere aubslstance level
of wnges.
t'nloaa Halt Class.
Tint for the trade-union movement
entering into modern Industrial life,
combating the ever present tendency
of employers toward a mere subsistence
wage, combating their tendency to re
tain the long employment day that had
obtained prior to the development of
fartory life, America would have had
a clans ns distinctly marked apart from
the rest of society as any European
country.
The idea obtains to some extent that
trade unions are merely organizations
of nggresston, that they are something
in the nature of predatory bands form
ed to secure for their members such
temporary advantages aa may be pos
sible, no matter what the coat to em
ployers or to society. Of course, those
who out of short-alghtedneaa oppose
the trado union movement, Beek always
to spread this false Impression.
The truth Is that no organisation In
America Is broader in its outlook or at
tempts to more intelligently understand
the general neds of our society or to fit
In more constructively and helpfully.
An understanding of the structure of
thp American Federation of Labor may
be helpful In lending to an understand
ing of Its activities and policies. The
form of organisation around which the
American labor movement Is built 1b
exactly like the form of organisation In
the political life of our country. The
American Federation of Labor Is con
structed with Its foundation on the
ground and nil powers proceed from
the bane upward and not from the top
downward. The smallest unit of or
ganization Is the local union. Local
unions are composed of groups of peo
ple working In the same trade In the
same communities. These local unions
are nflllinted Into what are known as
city central bodies or city central la
bor unions. The city central labor un
ion Is, thus, a representative organisa
tion composed of delegates from all the
local unions In a city. By the same
process, state federations of la
bor nre formed. In most cities, there
are, in addition to the city central la
bor union, delegate bodies representing
the unions In specific branches of In
diistry such as the building trades, the
metal trades and the printing trades.
Through these representative com
munity organizations, the wage earners
In each city are brought together and
are placed In a position to act united
ly nnd Intelligently for the conserva
tlon and advancement of their own In
terests and for the consideration of
problems of all kinds relating to the
life of the municipality.
International Scope.
In addition to these representative
community organisations, there afe na
tional and International unions. Most
American unions have adopted the term
'International' because their member
ship extends into Canada and Mexico.
National and International unions are
formed by uniting all of the local un
ions In a given trade.
Comparing the trade-union move
ment with our political Btructure the
national and international unions really
correspond to the departments of gov
ornmont. The Amerioan Federation of
Labor la as lta name implies, a federa
ttnn a federation of unionB corres
ponding to the federation of states, It
In an nfflllatton of national and inter
national unions. In Its annual conven
tlons, these national and international
unions nre entitled to vote in propor
tion to the membership on which they
pay jter cap i la tax to the American
Federation of Labor. Jn addition, each
city central body, each state federation!
and each of the five departments of the
American Federation of Labor Mine, r
Metal Trades, ttulldinw Trades, Union
Label Trades and Kailroad Employes'
Department, are entitled to one dele-!
gate.
Many persons think that the Ameri-7
can Federation of Labor is an organi-j
lation of great power. In a most 1m-
portant sense this is true, but In the
sense in which it Is understood by!
many of labor's critics, it is without!
truth. The great power of the Ameri-
can Federation of Labor Is the power
of moral suasion. It la the united opin
ion of four million organized wage
earners that has weight and power.
Th American .Federation of Labor
haB no power of compulsion elter over
ItB own affiliated membership or those
outside its membership. It Is believed
by many that the American Federation
of Labor ordem strikes. This is not the
case. The American Federation of La
bor cannot order one person to cease
work. The statement that the Amen
I can Federation of Labor has no power
of compulsion Is absolute. There is no
qualification whatever. It can say,
through its conventions, or through its
Executive Council and Its officers that
certain policies or certain courses of
conduct are advisable, but only as there
is general unity of opinion and the
moral force of that unity of opinion Is
there any ac .ual power to compel com
pliance. B. F. Doherty Dies In Port

BROTHERHOOD SETTLES
The regular monthly luncheon and
meeting of the Brotherhood took place
on Monday evening at Hotel Patrick, '
with a somewhat smaller attendance'
than is usual when this event 1b pulled
off, and but one long table was re-j
quired to accomodate those who sat'
down to the spread. Mrs. Pyle pre-j
pared her usual good meal and this;
was thoroughly enjoyed. After a short!
business session President Livingstone
presented the subject for discussion,
which was "Disarmament," introducing
Jos. J. Nys as first speaker. He was
followed by S. E. Notion, Prof. James,
W. S. Raker. E. M. Shutt, J. W. Hiatt
and V. Crawford and the disarmament
question was quite thoroughly dis
cussed from a number of angles. There
was expressed a general feeling of sat
isfaction and optimism over the re
sults so far attained at the Disarma
ment Conference and a resolution ex
pressing this feeling was passed and
the secretary ordered to forward the
same to President Harding and Secre
tary Hughes. The Interest in the de
bate was lively and the meeting was
declared to be one of the best yet held
by the Brotherhood.
Chairman Chidsey of the relief com
mittee reported that after making a
survey of the city he was Unable to
report anyone In need of aid. This
committee would he glad to be In
formed at any time of anyone In need
and want within the city, as they de
sire to lend assistance in all such cases.
The subject to be discussed at the
December meeting will be "A Commun

Heppner Lone to lone
In the football game between the
Heppner Legion Post and lone Post
teams at lone on last Friday afternoon,
the Heppner boys received a complete
shutout, the score being 13 to 0 at the
close of the hard fought battle. The
defeat of the locals can be laid to their
lack of team training, ns they had ex
perienced difficulty In getting together.
With lone It was a case of good team
work though they had a hard time
holding their opponents In the second
half, when the Heppner team apparent
ly got its wind and was ready to put
up a stiff fight.
These teams will come together on
Thanksgiving at Heppner and Manage

LIE IN HIS COFFIN
Poor old sleepy Lexington, hitherto
considered dead, proved to be the livest
and toughest old somnambulist that
ver grabbed a pigskin.
It seems that our neighbor Heppner
some time ago made it known that if
we could find eleven children In our
high school that had an average of
ninety In deportment, they, meaning
Heppner, would like to play us a game
of football. Now you can imagine the
time we had getting up that eleven, es
pecially as we have only eleven he kids
in our school from abc up, but as they
all proved to be extra good kids and
were anxious to learn how to play foot
ball, (Prof. Bennett said that was the
name of the game) we got busy.
Well, the first turn out of the box,
what does our neighbor do but bring
down a coffin with the remark that af
ter the game was over It was custom
ary for all teams that had hitherto
played Heppner to enter said coffin and
go forth to the silent acres.
Well, galdinglt, that made ua road
and. O, well, game was called, and Bay
the way that bifnch of grammar and
abc kids of ours plowed up the dirt was
something fierce.
It seemed that when Heppner did
get hold of the windbag, some little
scamp from Lexington would take It
away from them and run on with it;
finally Louie must of felt sorry for
them, for he tossed the ball to them to
see if they knew what to do with It
and, by cracky, all they did was feel of
it to see if It was made of leather or
wood. Finally Bill got tired of watch
ing them stand there and hold It, so the
scamp run up and took it away from
them and run off with It again.
Well, this sort of thing kept up all
the afternoon till the score got up so
high on the Lexington side that we run
out of paper and our pencil got dull.
Some of the gang was for letting Hepp
ner score a few more in order to even
things up, but It seems that they didn't
have a man on the team that could run
that far or kick It higher than his
head, so what could we do but call It
56 to 14 In our favor and let Heppner
go home, coffin and all. Contributed.

W. r; Scott of Lexington was quite
severely injured on Sunday when his

en out to the main Una near Metsner to
take the train to Portland and In going
up on the highway the steering gear
gave way and th machin turned over
the grp.de, pinning Mr. Scott under

for about fifteen minutes before relief
came and when th car was lifted it
was foind he was quite severely In
jured. He waa placed on the train and
taken to Heppner Junction but reached
there too late to get on the local and
was brought on to Ion for medical
treatment Some cuts and very bad
bruises have kept him confined at home
since but It is expected that he will be
out in another day or two. It was
feared at first that be had received
serious internal Injuries but this proved
not to be so, according to word sent

states that they had a fine season for
work, and though he came out at about
the same time of the year, it was the
first time that he traveled in dust from
the mines to Heppner. Another week's
stay there would have told a different
story as it has been snowing a lot in
the mountains and he would have en
countered a foot or more of snow in
getting over part of the road to Hepp

Feeder Koda Are Now the Ner.
The main trunk highways of Oregon
are fast nearing completion, tbough
there remains much to be don yet be
fore the roads now on the map of the
State Highway Commission are all
graded and surfaced. The program,
however, is being well carried out and
now the greater question of feeder
roads and market highways is coming
to the front This is the question In
road construction that the people of
this state will have to work on in th
immediate future; It is the real road
problem, now that the limit has been
reached In th state's ability to get
further capital by the bonding process,
and Just how the future road program
will be financed is th question that will
require a lot of figuring.
Heppner waa visited last evening by
Senator L L. Patterson of Polls county,
and W. B. Dennis of Carlton, Washing
ton county, in company with Commis
sioner W. B. Barratt and Herbert Nunn
of Salem, head of the-engineering de
partment of the State Highway Com
mission. At an informal luncheon at
Hotel Patrick, a number of our cltlsan
had th pleasure of meeting Mr. Pat
terson, Mr. Dennis and Mr. Nunn, each
of whom is a good roads enthusiast
The two former gentlemen were mem
bra of the state legislature who wer
foremost in the fight to put acroaa th
state's road building program: Senator
Patterson being one among the first
to take up the work, and Representa
tive Dennis giving this subject such
attention and support that he wa
looked upon as the best informed man
on the subject in the 1919 session of
the legislature. He did not return to th
legislature In 1921, but was called ther
to aid in the road legislation during
the last session and rendered much val
uable service to the committees having
this work in charge.
At the little meeting last evening,
Representative C. E. Woodson presided
and there was short talks on th road
question by Messrs. Patterson, Dennis
and Nunn as well as a few of our local
men. Mr. Patterson was of the opinion
now that we had practically completed
the trunk lines it was up to th state
to get behind a program that would
help the farmers and citizens of th ru
ral districts to get to these trunk lines;
this would, as a matter of fact prov
to be the greatest development scheme
for the Btate. Tourist travel Is a great
thing, but the development of th
farms and home la a much greater
thing. He would make no particular
complaint of the Highway Commission
for the policy they hav followed, for
their program was to a certain extent
set out by statute. Mr. Dennis took
much the same ground and emphasised
what Mr. Patterson had to say. They
had Just traveled over some of th
Eastern Oregon roads off the highway
and wer made to realize the need of
better laterals and market roads. These
gentlemen will get behind a program
that will put this over.
Mr. Nunn reviewed to some extent
the work accomplished, and did not hes
itate to say that Oregon had accom
plished more in building of permanent
roads for the money expended than any
other state; this fact is proved by th
statistics at hand. It is a record to b
proud of.
Mr. Barratt was reticent about mak
ing any statements but gave out the
word that he hoped to see the work on
the Oregon-Washington Highway thru
this county completed, as well as the
connecting link in Gilliam county. He
accompanied these gentlemen to Ar
lington today, and with Engineer Nunn
was going over the survey In Gilliam
county from the Morrow county line to
the Columbia River Hishway to try to
convince the engineer that another lo
cation for that end of the highway can
be made that will eliminate the neces
sity of cutting up so badly the alfalfa
fields through which the present survey
runs. Mr. Barratt states that the pres
ent route, if the road was built would
practically ruin several good alfalfa
farms along Willow creek In Gilliam
county, put the county up against ex
cessive damages and make it almost
impossible to complete the work. He
hopes to eliminate this.
Messrs. Fattersn and Dennis state
this was their first visit to Morrow
county and the first opportunity they
had of seeing what a wonderful empire
exists out here In this Eastern Oregon
country. They wer delighted with the
reception given them at Heppner, and
hope that now the better roads have
come. Eastern Oregon and Willamette
valley will become more sociable and
better acquainted.
