was seen at his home yesterday by a reporter of the United Press The master workman had just returned from Buffalo where he hud goue to aid in adjusting la lxr differences He was asked his views concerning the labor demonstrations in New York and elsewhere today and at first stated that he had nothing to say and that such information should come from Mr Gompeis president of the Federation of Labor under whose auspices the demon strations would beheld Concluded ti Say u Few Words Warming up to the subject later he said that his position on this question was too well known to ueed explanation He had always favored an eighthour law The Knights of Labor had also endorsed it adopting a preamble favoring it at the general assembly in 1S78 As he under stood it todays demonstration sthrotigh out the country were to convince the pub lic that the labor element was really in favorof shorter hours for the toilers All Working for the Short Day This movement to secure an eighthour law is a universal one said Powderly and we are all working steadily for it Within the last few years about thirty in dustries employing labor have adopted it I and still others have adopted the nine hour system In some instances workmen received but eighthours compensation and in others thoy got tenhours pay for eighthours work Other industries pay their workmen tenhours compensation for ninehours work A Reduction of Hours by plan which I recommended to the general assembly was to reduce the hours of labor one half hour each year till an eighthour system could be obtained with ten hours pay This has been adopted by the Union Pacific railroad company and in three years their men will be working eight hours daily I believe that the Amer ican Federation of Labor is concentrating its efforts in favor of the carpenters just now and if they succeed it will be a great gain to labor generally The carpenters are the largest class of mechanics which have a mebership in the federation One Rengoii for the Reform You will see concluded Powderly that this eighthour law is a most right eous one when you remember that a man can perform between the hours of 8 and 13 in the morning more labor with the im plements of the present than two men tonld perform in two days of tan hours each witu tho implements used forty years ngo The genius of the mechanic provided this labor saving machinery and it is but right that he should share its benefits However the solution of the whole prob lem will come when the laborer shares the profits of his toil As he will be then work Anarchistic Caprices
