Valera Is Scored
Another popular resolution was

the self-styled President of the Irish
Republic. The motion stated that
de Valera Is an American, born In
Rochester, N. Y., that he Is a draft
dodger, that during the period of
hostilities be treated with the enemy
and attempted to form a submarines
base upon the Irish coast and that
now he is attempting to secure the
protection <jf this country as an

which was unanimously adopted,
stated that he should not be ac
cepted or recognised by any city of
this country.
Other resolutions adopted were of

The Yeomanette Post Introduced
and passed two resolutions, one con
cerning the removal or modtflcalon
of civil service examinations in re
gard to the yeomanettes, the second
concerning the discontinuance of
wearing the corn flower, the Ger
man National flower and as such was |
worn to recognize enemy aliens dur- '
ing the war period.
A very popular resolution which
was passed with much applause was
that one which nrged that there be
no discrimination In the action
taken against alien and native-born
slackers, and that if anything the
punishment of the native-born -
slacker be more severe.
The exploitation of the uniform j
by men who wore it while peddling
or soliciting, was strongly con- !
demned as a fit subject for the dls- ;
gust of any service man of the Unit- |
ed States. Action will in all proba- ;
bllity be taken on this.
Would Punish Bergdolls
The so-called "Bergdoll resolu- |
tion" met with the greatest recep- j
tlon and was passed with no dls- >
sentlng vote. This resolution urges j
that the Department of Justice re- ;
double Its efforts to apprehend both j
Grover and Erwin Bergdoll. of Phil- i
adelphla, who are draft dodgers still i
at large and unpunished, and who j
have flaunted that fact In several ■
public appearances. The resolution
likewise decries the evident hesita
tion of the government to punish
Mrs. Bergdoll. who greatly aided In
the escape and protection of her
The subject of lynching and race
riots was taken up and unanimously
disapproved by the delegates. It
was urged that the government take
more active steps In the, repression
of any such disturbances In the fu

politics at any meeting of a post,
or at any meeting under the au
spices of the American Legion."
Compulsory and universal train
ing was adopted after a hot debate. I
dur'ng which both sides of the ques

It was recommended that the Na

an ovation which lasted for five
| minutes, the delegates, standing on
j chairs, clapping and cheering, un
: til Major Murdock finally pounded
| for order. Governor Sproul smlllng
jly thanked the convention for Its
' reception, and after a few brief
] words of appreciation announced
! that It was hts belief that this first
| convention was a memorable occas
ion. He would therefore depart
: from his usual custom and deliver a
i prepared speech. The Governor then
' read his well-conceived address. In
terrupting it from time to time to
| add an Impromptu remark.

frequently Interrupted and cheered
for minutes at a time, and when

tiring in his work with the tempor
ary organization of the State Legion,

declaring that their nctivltloa "hail
all the elements of a conspiracy."
Expect Soviet Operation
Activities of union organizers In
steel districts before the present
strike was called had "all the ele
ments of a conspiracy," T. J. Davles,
tin worker told the Senate Investi
gating the strike to-day. Foreign
workmen in some cases he said, ex
pect it to result In Soviet operation
of the mills.
"These men moved mysteriously
around the plant," declared Davles,
who said ho represented the senti
ment of five thousand tin workers.
"We kept hearing that they Intended
to cripple the plants, paralyze oper
"These foreigners, when we asked
them, explained they were going to
get the 'closed shop.'
Workmen Intimidated
" 'President Wilson, President
Gompers,' they all say, 'are with us.
You Americans can't work here af
terward. Nothing but union men.
"Some of them explained to mo
'we won't need bosses after this,
committees will run mills.' "
Davles said some workers were
Intimidated because they are told
their houses will be blown up and
their wives killed.
Armed with books which Foster
ijas written during his career In la
bor circles which advocated revolu
tionary socialism and sabotage, and
with copies of the I. W. W. organ
"Solidarity," containing articles con
tributed by him from Europe where
he went In 1911 as a representative
of that organization, Foster was
pressed Into a lengthy explanation
of the doctrines and views he advo
cated In 1914 and earlier years.
"Dying Newspapers"
Foster first attempted to parry the
questions at the outset, refusing to
answer unil newspaper reporters
were excluded from the room, on
the ground that "lying, prejudiced,
newspapers have misconstrued and
misrepresented my personal opin
ions with the whole Idea of Injuring
the cause of 100,000 steel workers."
He was finally crowded Into a declar
ation, when Senator McKellar,
Democrat, of Tennessee, reading
many quotations from his works,
demanded that he say whether or
not-"he still adhered to this belief.
"Those are not my views, now,"
he said, In a subdued tone, after
listening to his own words repeated,
declaring "the state to be a med
dling, capitalistic Institution" and
advocating violence In strikes, and
calm acceptance of bloodshed as
necessary to forwarding of the rev
olutionary cause.
Gompers Breaks Tn
President Gompers, of the Ameri
can Federation of lAbor, broke Into
the examination In Irritated fashion
at one point, when Foster was
standing- on his objections to news
per reports of hts testimony.
"Well, they can't say anything
worse about yon than they have."
the aged head of the Labor Federa
tion adjured him.
Foster would not, however, com
pletely adjure his old works and
faced with one line to the effect
"that the syndicalist worker will not
be hgid back from direct action by
the capitalistic code of ethics, duty,
honor, patriotism," he told the com
"Put quotation marks around
some of those, and I'll stand by
them yet. They'll show how the
words are used."
Has Own Ideas
Other excerpts from later writ
ings, stating that "government as
we know it will shrivel up and die,"
and "Industries now in the hands
of the state, municipalities and the
nation, will be given completely over
to the workers in them," he was
quite well prepared to defend.
"I have my own ideas about gov
ernment," he said of the first, and
of the second:
"That's not so startling nowa
Not Syndicalism
"Well, that's syndicalism, pure
and Bimple, isn't it?" Senator Sterl
ing, Republican, of South Dakota,
one of his most persistent interro
gators, demanded.
"I think not." Foster said. The
witness endorsed his own advocacy
of race suicide with the statement
that "It is foolishness for workmen
to undertake to raise big families."
President Gompers with apparent
amusement listened 'to Senators
read Foster's essays on the Amer
ican Federation of Labor—written
before he Joined it as an organizer
—wherein he asserted that "the
American Labor movement is In
fested with hordes of dishonest of
ficials and labor fakirs. These men
must go." He explained that to-day
he considered the blanket charge
not tenable.
One letter, written to "Solldariy,"
wherein Foster explained that It was
the true duty of a revolutionary to
work thbough existing trades unions
and quit trytng to build up new or
ganizations, Interested the commit
tee considerably. Foster admitted
authorship, but would not say it
described his present course.
Spelled Fight
"All these things, these doctrines,
spelled violence, didn't they?" Sen
ator McKellar asked him.
"They spelled light," Foster re
His remarks on the present strike
wore comparatively brief.
"It came bfceause the workers
were denied opportunity to present
their grievances," he said. "It could
not be delayed at President Wilson's
request, because of the steel cor
poration's policy in instituting
wholesale discharges."
Foreigners made up the largest
membership in the unions at pres
ent, he explained, "because higher
paid Americans, knowing of the fate
of past attempts to organize the
steel industry, stand back to wait
and see."
"Of course, we'd like to take the
OCTOBER 4, \pl9.
j Americans first," he said. "They
] oocupy the strategic positions, being
I more skilled."
Docs Not Want Violence
"Are you n syndicalist now?" Sen- |
| ator McKellnr asked.
"No," Foster said. He added he
| intended to conduct the strike with
: out violence, so fgr as his power
' went.
"Are you seeking now: havo you
! ever sought, to circulate those doo
| trlnes In that pamphlet among steel
; workers?" naked Senator Borah,
j "Not at all," Foster answered. "1

Belonged to I. W. W,
Foster paid ho belonged to the L.
W. W. in 1911 and represented the
organization at the International
conventions in Europe.
"I haven't been a member for five
years," he added.
"What was your attitude during
the war?" asked Senator Walsh,
Democrat. Massachusetts.
"I thought the war ought to be
won at all costs," ho said, adding
that he had made dozens of speeches

In Pittsburgh, Braddock and Homo
stead, steel workers "live In hovels."
"Laborers In the building trades
get eighty cents an hour," he said,
' while in the steel mills, the same
class get forty cents an hour,"
Gompors Fills Breach
President Gompors came back be
fore the committee when Foster
concluded "to straighten out a few
matters," he said, and nttackod
briefly some of the points Judge
Gary, chairman of the steel corpora
tion, emphasized In his testimony
fcefoie the committee.
"The steel corporation in 1301
passed a resolution declaring Itself
unalterably opposed to union labor,"
Mr. Gompers said, "notifying nil of
Its subsidiary offices that it stood
against any extension."
He defined an "open shop" as "a
place where the principle of collec
tive bargaining cannot exiot."
Steel corporation hospitals—"l
have been Informed by newspaper
men" ns he put it—are places whore
