No Class Lines in America
Says Samuel Gompers.
NO PEASANTRY HERE
Activities of A. F. L Out
lined and Policies Ex
plained by Leader.
By SAMUEL GOMPERS.
President of the American Federa
tion of Labor.
Editor's Note. No man in the
world today sUnds so high in the es
teem of labor as does Samuel Gom
pers, and no man is given more re
spect by the employers, for while the
latter were opposed to the organiza
tions be represents, they have admit
ted ha was honest, fair and open to
reason as well aa being a elean fight
er for the rights he believed due to
his followers. He knows the ideala,
the alms and the strength of union
ism as no other man does.
America has no peasantry.
America has no class set apart,
marked 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 ia distinguished through
out the world by the high standard
of living which the masses of her
people enjoy. The comparison is
sharp and distinct.
For this, the American trade-union
movement ia primarily responsible.
America has no proletariat as Eur
ope knows the proletariat.
In the beginning, this was because
of the manner in which our country
was settled and because of its bound
less natural resources. It haa re
mained so primarily because of the
For this, if not for no other service,
the trade-union movement of the
United States is entitled to be ranked
as one of the country's greatest as
sets, if not, indeed, as the greatest
asset of all
The growth of the trade-union
movement has substantially paral
leled the growth of the machine or
factory system. With the coming of
steam and the subsequent coming of
electricity and the use of these agen
cies of power in the developmnt of
factory life, the tendency of Indus
try was to concentrate populations
in small areas and the tendency of
employers was to keep these concen
trated populations, so far as possible,
at a mere subsistence level of wages.
Unions Halt Class.
But for the trade-union movement
entering into modern industrial life,
combating the ever present tend
ency of employers toward a mere sub
sistence wage, combating their ten
dency to retain the long employment
day that had obtained prior to the
development of factory life, America
would have had a class as distinctly
marked apart from the rest of society
as any European country.
The idea obtains to some extent
that trade unions are merely organi
sations of aggression, that they are
something in the nature of predatory
bands formed to secure for their
members such temporary advantages
as may be possible, no matter what
the cost to employers or to society.
Of course, those who out of short
sightedness oppose the trade nnion
movement, seek always to spread this
The truth Is that no organisation
in America is broader in its outlook
or attempts 'to more intelligently un
derstand the general needs of our so
ciety or to fit in more constructively
An understanding of tha structure
of the American Federation of Labor
may be helpful In leading to an un
derstanding of its activities and its
oolicies. The form of organisation
around which the American labor
movement is built is exactly like the
form of organisation in the political
life of our country. The American
Federation of Labor is constructed
with its foundation on the ground
and all powers proceed from the base
upward and not from the top down
ward. The smallest unit of organi
sation Is the local union. Local nnions
are composed of groups of people
working In the same trade, in the
same communities. These local unions
are affiliated into what are known as
city central bodies or city central
labor unions. The city central labor
union Is, thus, a representative or
ganisation composed of delegates
from all the local nnions in a city.
Bv the same process, state federa
tions of labor are formed. In most
cities, there are, in addition to the
city central labor union, delegate
bodies representing the unions in
specific branches of industry such as
the building trades, the metal trades
and the printing trades. Through
these representative community or
ganisations, the wage earners in each
city are brought together and are
placed in a position to act unitedly
and intelligently for the conservation
and advancement of their own inte
rests and for the consideration of
problems of all kinds relating to the
life of the municipality.
In addition to these representative
community organisations, there are
national and international unions.
Most American unions have adopted
the term "international" because
their membership extends Into Can
ada and Mexico. National and inter
national unions are formed by unit
ing all the local unions in a given
Comparing the trade-union move
ment with our political structure, the
national and international unions
really correspond to the departments
of government. The American Fed
eration of Labor is. as its name im
plies, a federation a federation of
unions corresponding to the federa
of states. It is an affiliation of na
tional and international unions. In its
annual conventions, these national
and international unions are entitled
to vote in nronortlon to the member
ship on which they pay per capita
tax to the American Federation of
Labor. In addition, each city central
bodv. each state federation and each
of the five departments of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor Mine,
Metal Trades, Building Trades, Union
Label Trades and Railroad Employes'
Department re entitled to one dele
Many persona think that the Amer
ican Federation of Labor Is an or
ganisation of great power. In a most
Important sense this is true, but in
the sense In which it Is understood
by many of labor's critics, it is with
out truth. The great power of the
American Federation of Labor ia the
united opinion of four million organ
ized wage earners that has weight
The Aemrican Federation of Labor
haa no power of compulsion either
over its own affiliated membership or
those outside its membership. It is
believed by many that the American
Federation of Labor orders strikes.
This is not the case. The American
Federation of Labor cannot order
even one person to cease work. The
statement that the American Federa
tion of Labor haa no power of com
pulsion is absolute. There is no qual
ification whatever. It can aay, through
its conventions, or through its Execu
tive Council and its officers that cer
tain policies or certain eourses of
conduct are advisable, but only as
there is general unity of opinion and
the moral force of that unity of opin
ion is there any actual power to com
-That dusting with copper carbonate
is a most promising method for treat
ing seed grain for amut control is in
dicated by a summary of cooperative
field trials conducted during the past
growing season by Oregon county
agents in cooperation with the State
An average of thirty tests with cop
per carbonate showed that smut in
fection ran 8.46 percent Sixteen tests
with the ordinary bluestone treatment
ran 3.48 percent and fourteen tests
with the formaldehyde treatment
showed infection of 1.11 percent The
copper-carbonate dusted seed was
planted in the same field with grain
of the same variety which had been
treated with either formaldehyde or
bluestone in tha manner ordinarily
followed by the growers. Sometimes
reduced delivery for the dry-treated
the drill was especially adjusted to
seed, and in other cases the same op
enings were nsed for both liquid and
dry-treated seed. Seed was treated
withS copper carbonate at the rate of
two ounces per bushel, the Experi
ment Station- recommending that the
seed grain be placed in a tight box,
with a lid, which could be rotated like
a churn until all grain was thorough
ly coated with the dust
Germination Is Speeded.
That copper-carbonate treatment re
sults in more prompt emergence than
the usual liquid dips is the general
opinion of those watching the tests.
H. G. Avery, Union County Agent
reports that one copper-carbonate
plot germinated full three days ahead
of the rest of the field, which was
treated with bluestone. All coopera
tors have noted an improved stand
where copper carbonate was used. In
one case in Union county the stand
was 63 per cent heavier, and on the
L. Redding farm in Morrow county
the seed treated with copper carbon
ate yielded a stand more than twice
as thick as that treated with formal
dehyde. In almost every case a greater vigor
in the seed was noted. County Agent
Bennion of Umatilla county stated
that one farmer in his county could
note the difference in favor of the
copper carbonate plot nearly half a
mile away. County Agent Calkins,
Morrow county, stated that In general
the plants from copper-carbonate
tested seed were taller and larger. In
general the plota from seed treated
with eopper carbonate were reported
to have a greater number of heads
per unit area and hence a presumably
Thorough Mixing Necessary.
In commenting upon the effective
ness of copper carbonate, Professor
H. P. Barss, head of the department
of Botany and Plant Pathology at' the
College, states that there is no reason
to expect copper carbonate to excel
the liquid treatment in effectiveness
for seed disinfection, since the liquid
dip when rightly used will kill all of
the smut on the seed. In order to
equal the liquid treatment the copper
carbonate must be so thoroughly
mixed with the seed as to penetrate
the brush and crease on the seed as
well as to cover the entire surface of
each grain. For this reason proper
seed treatment on a large scale is dif
ficult because of the lack of suitable
devices to insure the proper mixing.

MOMEY PHILOSOPHY for 1922
FINALLY our charming women
folk have bowed to the inevitable
and given the gate to the short skirt.
Soon sight of a tapered ankle will be
spoken of as something that existed
in "the good old days." Women of
course will be chided for their weak
ness. They have protested that the
short skirt is healthy and comfortable
and tried to keep it in the mode, but
what are the poor things to do when
the wholesale dressmakers just won't
make short skirts. The girls must
buy what they are offered or nothing.
And Where's the harm? The change
means more cloth used, more mill
hands at work, more business in the
stores. The much derided changing
mood of our women folk has kept the
wheels of industry moving many a

THIS week is inaugurated our Annual
Fall Subscription Clean-Up, during
which we hope and expect to have our sub
scription accounts brought down to date
and extended for another year. The num'

list is surprisingly small, and is growing
less every day, but we would like to have
our list 1 00 per cent "paid up" and look
for good results during this campaign.

ONE of the finest and most complete
feature services available to the
country newspaper publishers of the Uni
ted States is the Publishers' Autocaster
Service, in which The Gazette-Times holds
theexclusive franchise in Heppner. Thru
this service we are supplied with features
of interest to every member of the family.
The talent pictured above-a staff of feature
artists equal to that maintained by large
metropolitan papers-is working for this
paper, and their product is of the very high
est class. In addition to this service, The
Gazette-Times publishes exclusively in
Morrow county the Community Service ar
ticles, written by the country's leading
men in all lines of endeavor, each recog
nized as an expert on the subject he dis
cusses. These are but a few of the good
things you get in The Gazette-Times which
no other paper in this territory can give you.
. THE GAZETTE-TIMES has by far
the largest circulation of any Morrow coun
ty newspaper. This circulation has been
maintained on the merit of the paper alone,
it not having been necessary to give pre
miums or hold contests to secure and keep
subscribers on our list. The paper itself
is recognized as being worth every cent of
the subscription price. In fact, so much
good, worth-while material is put into the
paper that it is not possible to put money
into side issues that, as commonly used,
serve only to camouflage the short comings
of the paper using them.
