Albert Lea Examiner (Newspaper) - September 1, 1921, Albert Lea, Minnesota Farmers workers help Albert Lea trades and labor Assembly celebrate labor Dayt la Gir ground endorsed by the Albert Lea trades and labor Council Albert Lea examine Elf you Are wrong you can t be too conservative if you arc right you can i endorsed by the Austin trades and labor Coe Neil a Olio a single it of Piei 5 workers lose in rail wage award overtime pay granted to the transportation brotherhoods in Railroad service by the terms of the Adamson act of 1916, if taken away in whole or in part by the Railroad labor Board will precipitate a general Railroad strike throughout the United states. This is the conclusion reached by men who have watched the process of disarming tying throwing and ppm Meling the Railroad labor organizations during the past two years Ever since Congress and the Railroad executives got their Heads together to begin the framing of the transportation act. Now the ver it life of that measure hangs in the balance. Of Railroad labor decides to fight for the vestiges of Security which it still retains labor is free to do so. The Law Doc not prevent strikes. The Railroad labor Board if it join the anti Union and huge smashing movement through a repudiation of the overtime guarantee in the Adamson act will become an advisory hotly without an audience. It will go into the discard. Would enlist labor bodies Gigantic Force Are operating to make the Railroad labor Board take this fatal step throughout the bus j Ines and professional classes of the country where reactionary influences penetrate readily the word heard everywhere is that the Industrial and agricultural collapse is the fault of Railroad wage and con miners wages. These must come Down or the country will be ruined sinister suggestion Are made to the effect that for organised labor to resist these proposed depression in wages and standards of living is treason or insurrection or something of the sort which require to be met with violence by a a patriotic citizen. This propaganda is not definite it is gauge and whispered and hinted but it is running Back anti Forth from town to town one need not he especially intelligent to conclude that it is carefully manufactured Abd Dis-1 tribute and that worse is to follow. It appears the Eastern and Western group of railroads have not merely refused to agree that the transport tation brotherhood shall escape a wage reduction but that they Are go my to insist on one regardless of the decision of the Railroad labor boart a their decision i affected by uncertainty regarding the Fate of the Townsend Bill through which the Railroad Are attempting to raid Tho United state Treasury for now und additional loan of $500,000,000 under the Guise of a a refunding the present debt. Senator la Follette. Stanley and other Are planning a determined fight on the Bill when the Senate takes it up after recess. They Are in Hope that Public sentiment which is being aroused to the True nature of the Biry May make it impossible to put the measure through the Senate the letter of William g. Mcadoo to senator Stanley read into the congressional record wednesday is helping to crystallize sentiment Agam i the grab. Move against foal Miner of Railroad labor stops a a first step toward getting an understanding with the anti labor forces in the management and in the Washington administration and in Wall Street Coal production must likewise Stop. Coal operator have been preparing for a struggle when the contracts tween them and the United mine workers expire next Spring. Recently they have been Given from a Home mysterious source to demand the abrogation of their contract and to insist upon a wage reduction on dec l president lewd of the mine workers a refused the same propaganda machinery which i driving toward a crisis with Railroad labor is driving toward a Brea with the a Ooi Tail it was Gump can t understand Why Farmer labor people should own paper an except from an editorial from the red Wing daily Republican Ami reprinted in Gumps agony a great Deal of Buncome is heard about Farmer owned papers being willing and Able to do More for than papers which Are not Farmer owned. It does not take Long for Farmers to find out that there is nothing to this. So far As country papers Are concerned anyone who has sense enough to publish a paper at All Khz orcs that the Farmer a interest and the business menus interests Are interdependent Anil that what directly hurts one will indirectly Hurt the other. In order to serve any useful purpose at and therefore he must uphold the interest of the one As Well As of the other instead of merely harping about the grievances of the Farmers and the Rasca Lity of the business and professional class thus in effect trying to make matters worse by arraign ing the two interdependent classes against each other. It is a realization of these facts that causes the occasional petering out of so called Farmer owned papers. Also the fact that Many of them Are worked up by would be a newspaper men who appoint themselves champions of Farmers interests As a pretext for getting into the newspaper game at the Farmers expenses being unable to get there in any other Way. What a matter fido did some one step on you be got a reason to whine All right Haven to you pretty smooth sailing when you and a few of your half baked satellites were ironing around town trying to boy Cott the examiner different now he can to even do a decent Job of whining yourself so you hide behind another joke Joum Alist and let him do your whining for you a the Farmers and workers interests and business interests Are interdependent Are they. That a one time that through some strange Freak of Fate or circumstance you printed the truth in your puerile rag. The knowledge that they Are interdependent is the thing that a making the business men of Albert Lea advertise in the columns of the examiner to the banners and labourers of Freeborn county and that a the reason they Are getting their business that a one thing that a hurting you. And another painful thing is that the examiner tells the truth without fear or favor a a journalistic system that is far beyond your meagre comprehension. And again you never missed a Chance to take a Nasty Little slam at the Farmer or worker when the Opportunity arose you re getting called for those Little tricks pretty regularly now Arentt you and it hurts of course it hurts. We want it to Hurt and it will Hurt a bit worse lie fore we Are through with you. We have pretty thoroughly succeeded in making you the laughing Stock of Freeborn county Haven to we the Only Guy in town that does no to Giggle when your name is mentioned is a a Bill Chamberlain and he has a sore jaw from cussing the nonpartisan league and can to laugh. Before we Are through with you people wont laugh when your name is mentioned they will hold their noses and look sick. And that garment of dignity you affect to Wear it becomes you with the same Grace that a hobble skirt does a Muley cow. W on to lie drawn into any Low squabble with a Farmer Lalmer paper will you you let it you wont not while Burtie hollow nut wields the editorial pen on the daily excuse. That delightful child May not know much but he sure does know How to take a trimming lying Down. Well that a what you pay him for Isnit it not very Bright hut remarkably docile. We can to see Why the Farmers should run their own paper. Gump. And you so willing to do it for them. Telling the banners what to do is your particular Forte Isnit it ? but a lot of the Farmers and workers got to lie big boys and mind. Ii la ainu to it went right off and started a paper of their own. And the darned thing keeps right on living and getting Sasser every Day. Too had old kid know just How you feel. Just like an old Hen with some ducklings in her flock when those precocious youngsters take their first swim. Now done to think for a minute. Andrew that we Are trying to make a fool of you. It is not our province to attempt to improve on the Handiwork of god nor Are we so egotistical As to paint the Lily or gild the Rose. Goodbye old dear a till we meet again next week.
