M.; Parry, president of the National
Association of .Manufacturers, lies Is
sued a statement which Is full of gin
Ker. Here are some passages from It:
"The American Association of Mann
facturers Is opposed to nny luw which
means the undermining of .the coni
itiorclal stability1 or the linlustrhifvltal
ity of the I'lilted States. It Is opposed
tp the terrible anti-Injunction hill now
pending in ccnress, which proposed
law' has been Imported to this country
from lubor-uursed Kiighnid. This law

"TJe National Association of Manu
facturers Is also unalterably opposed to
the so-called eight-hour bill fathetfd
by tynnuel (Ioinpers, This bill, If It
could he put Into effect, would be a
radical and destructive assault upon
the prosperity of this country. While
In tho nature of things It would be Im
possible, to put such an absurd law Into
practical operation, yet It would have
the effect of dislocating business con
ditions, causing an Industrial paralysis
in this country the like' 6t which wo
have never experienced. Such a hill
would open th way to tho blackmail
the heavy iron, steel and shipbuild
ing Intercuts which are en-Kneed in llicf
manufacture of government oitpplles.
They cannot run on nit elght-hoilr basis
from the physical nature of their work.
By the terms of this proposed clftht

titty for each ninl every man who Is
pennliled to work over eight hours,
"The average worker docs not want

These relluws are alwny willing to en
gage In any brawling or denunciatory
assault upon employers. Tho nvcir.go
labor agitator Is an Ishmacllle. Ills
hami Is raised against every mint. Tho
agitators have secured the passage of
resolutions In which organized labor
has set Itself ngnlnst the lnwn of tho
land, declaring- that the lawn which
must ho obeyed by others shall not bo

contly organised labor line innilo a Con

driving non-union workmen from I ho

under their ptesent leadership thn
unions desire the overthrow of tho law
and the eoui-K They know Hint they
cannot bring-this about with tho mllltla
at hand to uphold the law. The agi
tators desire to build up a despotism
inside the liberties of the United States.
The employers of this country, how
ever, do not propose that such an an
archistic Element shall ever have charge
of tho destinies of the United Stales."
It Is a safe guess that the "agitators"
will win unless the employers get down
from their high horse and fight the,
enemy with his own weapons. In the

A California chemist claims to have
devised a process whereby potassium
cyanide, a drug- much used lu mining
and now costing twenty-five cents a
pound to produce, may be produced at a
t.ist of live cents a pound by drawing
it f hlefly from the air. This reminds us
of Lord Kelvin's scheme of drawing fer
tilization for the world's grain llelds
from the nitrogen in the air. At this
rate of chemical progress It may not
be long until there will indeed be a
trust with a corner on the atmosphere.
Various bills to rebuke and restrain
unfair trusts are under consideration
at Washington, all based on the Idea of
federal supervision similar to that sup
posed to be exercised by the interstate
commerce commission. Since tho sub
ject Is a big one and not likely to be
solved all at once, how would It do as
a beginning to clothe the Interstate
commerce commission with power suf
ficient to enforce uniform freight rales
and thus threaten one of the funda
mental strongholds of the trusts?
The Philadelphia North American's
attempt to prosecute a ye,llow "news"

argues that the place to bring such an

are that In .Philadelphia the grntesque-ne.-s

to news taking would laugh its case
