This helm: admitted, we submit
that tin; manner In which the Labor
movement of Klamath Falls was
pilloried at last week's meeting of
the Business Men's Association was,
to say the least, uncalled for.
Our attention has been called to
statoim'iits In the Sacramento ami
Portland papors , which, In offect,
say that "propaganda Is being circu
lated In Labor circles to the effort
that In order to work In Klamath
County n person must belong to nn
authorized Labor I'nlon."
This statement Is absolutely un
truo; and any action of the Uiislnoss

1 lie statement attributed to us been
mtide. On tlio contrary, we have ni
all times retrained from doing any
thing that might bo Interpreted us
assuming nn arbitrary stand.
The American Federation of La
bor has for years been struggling
nlong proper, lawful lines to bettor
conditions for those allllllated with
It; anil we In Klamath Falls have
done our best to uphold the tradi
tions of our parent body.
Wo can say with pardonable pride
that wo have dono everything to
attain and maintain Industrial peace
In the community; wo have at nil
times shown a willingness ana anx
iety to adjust by arbitration any dis
putes that arose; nnd the fact that'
four different trados In this city are
operating 'under mutual agreement
with their respective employers Is
evidence at the solid foundation on
which wo build. - '
Willi those honestlv opposed to us
wo have no iiiarrcl. Wo realize that
honest difference of opinion Is a
good thing for the human rnco In
general. But wo do not think that It
1 1 necessary to bolster up by mls
tatement an otherwise legitimate
I'llforenre of opinion.
We have, at no time, assumed the
Initiative against those opposed to
organized labor; the authority vest
ed by secret ballot, In our represent
atives hnB never been misused; and
every net, ever, activity of the or
gbnlzcd labor movement In Klamath
county has been, and Is, subject to
Wo believe In tho secret ballot on
all questions affecting our welfare;
each union runs its own affairs with
out outside Interference, but subject
to strong constitutional discipline;
and we are not given to mass action.
One other thing: Wo do not ad
mil the right of any body of men to
arrogate to themselves a monopoly
of all the patriotism In tho country.
We do not muko a parade of our
putrlotlsm we llvo It.
Tho ranks of Union Labor contri
buted to tlio ranks of our armies in
Flanders; ex-service men constitute
a goodly portion of our membership.
Right here in Klamath Falls there
nro literally scores of men who
qulotly assumed their responsibili
ties under the colors; nnd, tho war
being ovor, as quietly resumed their
places In Industrial life, and in the.
ranks of organized labor.
Tho sorvlco tings of organized la
bor are literally sprinkled with stars
many of thorn gold, Indicating tho
ultimate sacrifice. To those men,
wo In organized labor owo a duty,
which wo would bo recreant to Ig
nore; nnd the work entrusted to us
H a sacred ono. Wo ask nothing ex
cept to bo allowed to work out our
destiny along lines compatible with
our duty as citizens, ns union men,
nil members of tho community.
Wo say in all sincerity that the ac
tion of tho Business Men's Associa
tion was not a freo nnd voluntary
one, but was dominated by other iu
lluonces. And wo know this to bo
bo, by tho word of members of tho
Business Men's Association, who
wore denied tho right to secretly
bnllot on .a question of importance,
and ha'o since so stated.
If tho body of union men wero to
threaten to "close down" a plant un
less Its domands were granted forth;
with, Just censuro would bo heapod
upon thorn. What, then, must wo
think of tho throats of largo inter
ests to closo down rather than recog
nize tho same right they nvnilod
themselves of last Wednesday the
right to colloctivo bargaining?
In closing, wo relterate: Nono of
tho unions affiliated with tho Cen
tral Labor Council has In contempla
tion any trade movement of any
kind; thorotoro the action of the
Business Men's Association was in
opportune, not a free expression of
opinion, nnd not Interested in tho
general wolfaro of tho county.
Thoro aro many other pressing
problems confronting us, that com
mend themselves to the attention of
nil citizens in ovory ijalk of life, re
gardless of mercantile, financial or
Industrial connections. Tho worl
crlos for increased production; tho
country cries for restored stability;
and, locally, thuro are crying neods
aa yot unfilled. Wo In organized la
bor nro ready and willing to do our
shnro, nnd wo resont, as cltlzpns, be
ing ostracized for our belief In col
loctivo bargaining which, nftor all,
is tho basis of tho Constitution of tho ,
Wo npologlzo for this long tres
pass on xour vnlunblo spaco, nnd
trust that you can find roomfor it,

"I have not only gained twenty
pounds by taking Tanlac but It has
rid mo of tho nervous indigestion
which mado my life miserable for
throe years," said Mrs. Mattlo Kirk
land, of 2547 Benton Boulovard,
Kansas City, Mo.
''During those three years," she
continued, "everything I ate dis
agreed with 1110 and I suffered for
three hours after overy meal with
gas on my stomach. My head ached
all tho tlmo and I would often get
so nervous and dizzy that I would
havo to Ho down. I lot weight until
I got down to only one hundred and
ton pounds and my housework was
simply a burden to me. I Tvas so
run down nnd weak I could not walk
at times and while I tried almost
everything I heard of, nothing did
mo any good.
"I read so many testimonials for
Tanlac from our own Kansas City
peoplo that I decided to try it and
tho very first bottlo improved mo
wondorfully. I havo now taken sev
en bottles and I oat anything I
want without tho least trouble aftor-
wards. My appetito Is splendid and
my norves aro so calm I sleep liko a
child ovory night. In fact I fool as
strong and well as I did boforo my
troubles started three years ago. I
am glad to make this statement for
Tanlac, for If I hadn't seen similar
statements from others I probably
would still bo a sick, misorablo wo

This tractor has great pulling power and can be
