THE LABOR ADVOCATE The big business corporations of this country have learned it. A quarter of a century ago they were seemingly all powerful. Their word was law in State Legislatures and the National Congress. Their power bred arrogance and the public-be-damned attitude. And suddenly they were shorn of their power. Organized labor today has acquired enormous power. There arc certain indications, disquieting to its real friends that it, too, is growing arrogant and disregarded of the rights of the people. We hope it will never reach the public-bc-damncd stage. If.it will heed the voice of history it should watch its step. INDEPENDENT WE FIT NONPARTISAN Stout Women Up to 59 Bust.

THE LABOR ADVOCATE L : J AXOTIIKH STKIKK "SOrjUTIOX." Washington. Henry R. Townc, presi dent of the Vale & Townc Manufac turing Company, urged the Chamber of Commerce of the United States to ac cept Iiis plan of avoiding strikes. It involves a system of contracts between the railroads and their employes with the establishment of funds by both par tics from which penalties will be paid for breach of contract. The plan fur ther involves contracts which arc in dividual between the railroad and each employe and not with a railroad employ es' union. The latter plan caused the New York street car strike of last September, which is still on. The Canadian industrial dis putes act prohibits a strike or lockout in a public utility until after a commis sion investigates. Dominion trade un ionists show that it is impossible to con vict an employer of enforcing a lockout, while the contrary is true when workers strike.
