of tlie KllVFMi K Y Sept The national convention of tho Switehruens Mutual Aid aflHocliiLion met here yesterdny with repreaentalires from warly every rail way in the United States present The convention was welcomed by the runyor and the morning session devoted to welcoming and responses In the the convention wwnt Into secret nesaion at tbe Central 1jflbor Union hall There nere 110 members rciinxcntlnK nearly state In the Union anil iv number of noints In Aftor tho appointment of com mitUeH Uraml Master Sweeney read his annual report in the course of which he dlicuweil tlie objects ot the association and HB notion during tho New York Cen tra strike tti ma Iloflectons on Strikes After stilting the objects o the associa tion he proceeded as follows As to strikes I desire to be explicit in order that our position maybe fully understood It is erroneous to suppose that labor or ganizations are in favor of strikes or fo ment trouble Tho very reverse is true The bettor organized a trade is tho less trouble do tho employers experience with Ihclr employes For the benefit of those among you who do not owe allegiance to the Switchmens Mutual Aid association as well as of tho members I may bo per mitted to state this nne8toc at soma length fie then explained tho barriers thrown up by the organization to avoid anp the course that must be pun ned before a strike can have tho support of tho general organization 1olints for Railway Proceeding he said It Is my experience that wherever the officials will meet and treat with the men there has never boon any necessity of a resort to extreme meas ures and whenever radical measures are taken you may be sure that it is because tho respective railroad officials refuse to give the complaints of the men proper consideration I say advisedly that it la a refusal even to consider the grievance which in most oases loads to trouble not a refusal to whatever may be asked The men are not without common sense It IB easy to negotiate with their repre sentatives But a refusal to treat with them amounting to a denial of their right to present a complaint or desire savors too much of Oriental despotism to bo meekly borno by Americans though they be but mechanics and laborers I never knew of a working man who wanted a strike until ho was driven to it by abso lute necessity The Question of Combination Continuing he said I have said that will not offer any apology for tho eilst euce of the Switchmens Mutual Aid as sooUiUim With trusts and gigaulic cor porations all around us and continually ijrowiiin who dare sny that labor should not comblnoP How rare are tho cases where labor organisations have enered on a conflict with ctipitul and have nqf enjoyed the sympathy oE the public But I would like to cull thu attention of all railroad officials to thu fact that they make u mistake in opposing labor organi zations because they derive as much ben efit from thorn as do the laboring men themselves provided tha orgauizations are judiciously irmimgud It is easier to deal with a railroad president than with all the slock holders Do not tho mana gers white all tho world is running towarils combination and simplicity of management that it ia ensinr for them to deal with an executive head of a body of men than with all the ntcnt It saves time trouble affords a better oppor tunity to equalise wages and avoid jeal ousy removus causes ot dissatisfaction and secures better service from the em ployos RanuimR Their Own lousiness Many railroad managers fully xiuder this and assist rather than oppose labor organiKut ions Those who still op pose them display thereby a laaieatable task of foresight They insist ou run ning their own business as the phrase goen The time is fast approaching when they will lenrn thatthey are as much in terested as are the laboring men them pelves in the success of labor organiza tloDn Notwithstanding the strong oppo sition that has been made to the advance ment of organized labor and tha despotic Attitiule of some men high iu official po sition labor organizations are today stronger aud more effective and better disciplined than at any previous time Labor Is better united between individu al men and organizations than ever be fore The onward march of organized la bor Is irresistible Kocrvtn for Folly I cnuuot but recret the folly of the at titude of some egotistical railroad officials who think they are stronger than the economic forces which arffbringing about those rssults or seem to see ia passing events the works of men instead of the results of liuvs immutable as tho great I laws of physical nature These men re fuve to meet the representatives of labor organizations and virtually sometimes I even in BCI many words deny the righii of men lo organize Have ve not the same right to organize as they And is not ne cessity stronger on ourside than onthelrsf They could live without organization We bt degraded below a stage com patible with human dignity were It not for our organizations The officers of la bor organizations represent their constitu ents KS the iffliialsof a company repre sent the stockholders I Thi Action on the Central Strike j After referring to the United Order of Railway Employes embracing four classes of railway workmen and its power he re ferud to the Central strike as follows j As nu illustration of tha workings of the i council of the above and the influence aud wisdom and oulninness that govern its decisions let me cal1 your to the recent meeting at Terra Haute lod There was a strike on the York Central railroad Reports had bwa sent all over the country that the tire VamierbiU would be drawn Into tjio trouble The anxiety was in visea some troubles of our own caused tne grana mascer ot toe Swttcn menaMutnai Aid Association to depart to the scene of the trouble Public apt ire I hension excited by reports sent out by persona who were ignorant of the form I and purposes of our federation grew al most to a panic when the grand officers of j the Federated Railway organization went I to New York in response to an argent In vitation from of people expected a general strnce ind at many places business was prac incally suspended to Foment Trouble Amidst all this excitement and under the influence of the pressure of universal sympathy with tho men who were fight ing for their right to organize the preme council met The result is known All fears were set at rest and the public naw that the railroad employes were not anxious to foment trouble but on the contrary endeavored as they always will to preserve the peace not only in abstaining from infractions of the law but by avoiding any interference with the Industry and commerce of the country To my mind it Is only a question of time when all railway employes will be feder ated in one great body It is idle for in dividuals to oppose this consummation They may delay the formal act of federa tion but the sentiment is growing In spite of all fanned and fostered by the irresistible march of events The Supreme Council Indorsed Quaker Jity lodge No 73 of Philadel phia presented ft resolution which was unanimously adopted in which the su preme council of the Federation of Rail way Employes wis indorsed for its ac tion in the New York Central strike as was the position taken by the grand lodge officers in the recent
