Of Callaghan says Ireland will be free by associated press Topeka kan., mar 14. A review the Workings the Kansas Indus trial court Law from a mine Union officials Point View has been made by Alexander Howat president j District no. 14, United mine workers America. Or. Filowat says Quot the Industrial court has been in existence one year. During that period it has accomplished nothing in bettering labors condition in this state. A few wage claims involving i but a very Small number men have by associated press new York mar. 14.�?marine work ers employed ferries Buff eries been handled by the Industrial ourt tugs barges and other floating equip a few crumbs handed out As a bait Toji Lent railroads in new York her labor but for every Penny that has Hor Wil be asked within the next few been paid out to labor hundreds Days u Wake reductions rang dollars have been Given to the Public utilities corporations in increased rates. Eight ten cents an hour in crease was Given to the employees the Joplin Pittsburgh uni Way company who were already working for a starvation wage $3.50 $1.00 per Day and the passenger rates the company were almost doubled. Quot the Industrial court also added about 33 13 per cent to the value the Telephone company at Topeka and did the same at Kansas City Kansas and permitted their rates to be adjusted accordingly. A the Industrial court has Cost the tax payers Many thousands Dollar directly and Many hundreds Ltd thousands dollars in increased rates to Public utilities that have been Given by the Industrial court. P has pre vented no strikes and has done Noth ing but aggravate the labor prob Jeu and create Industrial strife. Quot every honest self respect n z working Man in the state should resent a Law this character. There is n Law even in the most autocratic country Europe today that enslaves the workers in such a manner As is in tended by this Law. Quot this Law is an infringement the sacred rights even Horn St working Man in the state Kansas. This so called Industrial court Law is an in j suit to every Man who believes in the principles Liberty and Justice and is a disgrace to the state Kansas. J this Law is meant to enslave organic de labor and to place us in the same condition that we were in years ago j lie fore we had established the 1 Nite 1 t mine workers. It is meant to place j us at the Complete mercy tin pm players labor. It is intended to d stroy the usefulness and effectiveness our organization and in fact is Only the beginning a movement that is finally intended to enslave the work i ing class America and to destroy j the organized labor movement the entire country. Quot organized labor is not opposed Toj the Industrial court Law because our desire to Call strikes but we know from bitter experiences the past what it Means to us it we surrender j the right to strike if that right is j taken away from us.

We know How Little j sympathy consideration we May Tope at the hands the employers1 when we Are chained to our jobs like slaves. Organized labor in Kansas has a right to expect the same degree Liberty and Justice that is accorded the organized worker in the other states the nation and we Are going to continue to fight until that principle is recognized and reestablished in this state.
