y THE LABOR ADVOCATE A CliRAK-HEADED EDITOK. San Francisco. While other news paper editors are pawing the air and us ing expensive white paper predicting the "downfall of this republic" because Congress made jt possible to avoid a railroad strike, tile San Francisco Bulle tin submits this cold analysis: "If there were no minority in the United States with more power to do harm than the brotherhoods have there would be no reason to worry about the fate of the republic. If there were no minority in the United States whose power to do harm was not conditioned, as that of the railroad brotherhoods is, by the habitual performance of a valu able service, there would still be no rea son to worry. But the railroad brother hoods are mere straws compared with the powers which actually dominate the railroads of the United States. Louis Brandeis; now a supreme court justice, showed in his book on 'Other People's Moncy' how the credit and capital of the United States is controlled bv rinc within...

"It looks like they arc sorry the strike was averted," said Con gressman Adamson, author of the eight hour law for railroad men, in discussing the claims of opponents of this legisla tion in the house of representatives, last week. "In the first place," he said, "it is not true that the act fixes wages. That statement is gratuitous and inconsider ate. The law fixes an eight-hour day. We had previously a 10-hour day and a nine-hour day. We now have an eight hour day. The only reference to wages is in the language used to hold in statu quo until the working of the eight-hour law could be observed and all other fea tures of the service adjusted to the eight-hour law. The language means and means only that there shall be no changes in the relations of the parties in any effort of the railroads to recoup what they assert to be an increase of wages. "The present threat of some railroad officials to resist ...

The first broadside of a campaign to throw the labor vote of the country to the support of President Wilson and the Democratic party for passing the Adamson eight-hour law was fired today by officials of the four railroad brotherhoods. With the exception of the brother hood of locomotive firemen and en gineers, the four powerful railroad or ganizations have sent out bulletins to all members urging them " to support our friends and defeat our enemies." W. S. Carter, president of the fire men's organization, said similar action will be taken by his union at once. "Support Our Friends." The bulletin sent out by W. G.
