One Man Shot and Many
Others Hurt in Melee
Last Night
By Associated Press•
Pittsburgh, Oct. 22.—Rioting in;
the Braddock steel mill district was !
renewed last night when a crowd of .
About fifty strikers and their sympa- .
fthizers clashed with several work
>men who had just 4eft one of the f
plants shortly before T o'clock. One |
nian was shot during the melee and
many others were injured.
State troopers, attracted by the i
noise of the fight, rushed to the j
scene on their mounts, and rode in- 1
to the mob, using riot clubs freely. |
When the troopers put in an ap
pearance, the crowd greeted them !
i with a shower of stones, clubs and
bottles, and an unidentified man
drew a revolver and fired five shots,
one of which struck Joseph Dinnoek,
■ln the vicinity of whose, home the
-disorder occurred. He was not seri
ously hurt.

heartier co-operation between the
elements engaged in industry or un
til it was revealed that the "men
who work and the men who manage
American industry are so set upon
divergent paths that all effort at co
operation is doomed to failure."
"National Disaster"
If the nation's industrial leaders
and workers are to bo without faith
in each other, constantly struggling
for advantage over each other and
doing naught but what is compelled,
the President said the situation thus
created "would be a national disas
ter." •
Delegates Indignant
Before the recess Samuel Gom
pers, president of the American Fed
eration of Labor declared that a mo
tion by John Spargo, of the public
group, that the conference give the
President "a solemn pledge binding
every group and individual that noth
ing would be left undone" to solve
the problems before the body, would
be "most unfortunate." The motion,
which had been seconded by Harry
A. Wheeler, chairman of the capi
tal group, was withdrawn.
As they left the conference hall,
the labor delegates expressed their
indignation over Mr. Spargo's mo
"Do you think we are going to stay
here to be crucified from day to
day?" demanded Frank Morrison,
secretary of the American Federa
tion of Labor.
At a conference before the general
session this morning the labor group
requested' Chairman Lane to read
the President's letter. Mr. Lane did
not desire to read it to a single
group and consequently gave it to
the full conference.
Mr. Lane and others in the con
ference said the opposition of the
labor group to Mr. Spargo's resolu
tion was based on the desire of some
individual members of the labor
delegates to be at liberty to withdraw
from the conference if they desired,
it v.as said th^t. should any of them
withdraw, new delegates probably
would be appointed and the labor
group remain in the conference.
Will Return
All members of the labor group
will return to the conference at 2.30
p. m. to-day, Mr. Morrison announc
ed after the private conference of
the labor delegation.
Other members said the group
had decided as a whole to remain in
; the conference.
His Message
The President's message follows:
To the Ladies and Gentlemen of
the Industrial Conference —
P am advised by your chair
mar? that you have come to a
situation which appears to
threaten the life of your con
ference, and because of that I
am presuming to address a
| word of very solemn appeal to
] you as Americans. It is not for
j me to assess the blame for the
I present condition. I do not
speak in a spirit of criticism of
! any individual or of any group:
i but. having called this confer
ence, I feel that my temporary
indisposition should not bar
the way" to a frank expression
of the seriousness of the posi
tion in which this country will
be placed should you adjourn
without having convinced the
American people that you had
exhausted your resourcefulness
and your patience in an effort to
come to some common agree
Without Faith?
At a time when the nations of
the world are endeavoring to
find a way of avoiding industrial
war, are we to confess that there
is no method to be found for
carrying on industry except in
the spirit and with the very
method of war? Must suspicion
and hatred and force rule us in
civil life? Are our industrial
leaders and our industrial work
ers to live together without
faith in each other* constantly
struggling for advantage over |
each other, doing naught but I
what is compelled?
Intolerable Outlook
My friends, this would be an
intolerable outlook, a prospect j
unworthy of the large thitvgs j
done by this people in the mas- j
tering.of this continent —indeed, |
it would be an invitation to nn- |
tional disaster. From such a j
possibility my mind turns away, j
for my confidence is abiding
that in this land we have learned
how to accept the general judg
ment upon matters that affect
the public weal. And this is
the very heart and soul of de
Should Stand Together
It is my understanding that
you have divided upon one
portion only of a possible large
program which has not fully de
veloped. Before a severance is
affected, based upon present
differences, I believe you should
stand together for the develop
ment of that full program
touching the many questions
within the broad scope of your
investigations. It was in my
mind when this conference was
called that you would concern
yourselves with the discovery ot
those methods by which a
measurable co-operation with
in industry may have been se
cured and if new machinery
needs to be designed by which
a minimum of conflict between
employers and omployes may
reasonably be hoped for, that
we should make an effort to se
cure its fldoption. It cannot be
expected that at every step all
parties will agree upon each
proposition or method suggest
ed. It is to be expected, how
ever, that as a whole, a plan
or program can be agreed upon
which will advance further the
productive capacity of America
through the establishment of a
surer and heartier co-operation
between all the elements en
gaged in industry. The public
expects not less than that you
shall have that one end in view
and stay together until the way
is found leading to that end or
until it is revealed that the men
who work and the men who
manage American industry are
so set upon divergent paths
that all efforts at co-operation
is doomed to failure.
I renew my appeal with full
comprehension of the almost in
comparable importance of your
tasks to this and to other peo
ples. and with full faith in the
high patriotism and good faith
of each other that you push
your task to a happy conclu
The right to organize for the pur
pose of collective bargaining, Sam
uel Gompers, president of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, said yes
terday, is the one question in con
troversy—"the one thing the work
ing people of the United States are
going to achieve."
Warns Employers
A hush fell over the crowded au
ditorium as the labor leader, square
ly facing the employers' wing and
shaking his finger toward that
group, exclaimed to the represent
atives of American capital:
"If you do not bear with us in
an effort toward construction, if you
think it impossible for us to secure
relief for the suffering masses of
American labor, if you insist on con
testing with us every inch of the
ground in our battle for better con
ditions, if you deny us the rights of
organization, if you render our work
finally impotent, you may destroy
us, but you will find yourselves fac
ing something else, something worse,
and you may come to rue the day
that you destroyed the saneness and
the willingness to serve that has and
does characterize the officials of
American trade unionism to-day."
Mr. Gompers again sounded a
note of warning a few moments
later when he told the members of
the conference that he feared they
did not appreciate the "critical sit- j
uatlon in which we find ourselves to
day." The people of the United
States, he asserted, are "sitting on
a lid industrially," turning toward
the employers he added, "whether
you like it or not trade unionism has
come to the United States to stay."
Concluding with the statement
that although the conference may
fail to satisfy the real needs of the
workers, he said the organized labor
movement would continue to flour
ish. and "whatever may be denied
us t*)-dav. we will win to-morrow."
Recognition of the right of work
ers to bargain collectively was swept
aside by the National Industrial
Conference last night In defeating
first a proposal by the employers,
next a substitute declaration by the
conference's general committee, and
third the original proposal of the
general committee. The conference
thereupon reverted to the steel
strike arbitration issue with pros
pects of a vote before adjournment.
The proposal from the labor group
to arbitrate the steel strike soon
was disposed of, both the employers
and the public representatives vot
ing against It. The conference slate
was thus swept clean.
Funeral services will be held to
morrow afternoon for Mrs. Ella R.
Beaver, 70 years old, who died on
Monday. Services will be held at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. J.
S. Frankford, 2032 Fulton street. The
body will be taken to Columbia on
Friday morning by Hoover and Sons,
where further services will be held
at 9 o'clock in the First Lutheran
Church. Burial will be in the Co

Sustain Losses
Citing losses sustained by agricul- [
tural producers, Senator Capper said
the recent decline in livestock prices
i had cost producers $80,000,000. Live
stock growers, he said, do not con
trol the markets and, like other agri
cultural producers must accept
prices fixed by others.
| Farm wages have doubled, land
values have risen enormously, and
everything the farmer buys, he said,
has risen from fifty to 300 per cent.
Among the remedies suggested by
Senator Capper were cessation of
"Federal government propaganda
i which tends to bear down the prices
of farm products."
Urges Wider Markets
"Executive departments," he said,
"should seek by every means at
their command to open wider mar
kets to the farmer by lifting the em
bargo on wheat and wheat flour fi
Europe, by extending credits to Eu
ropean governments and by lower
ing ocean freight rates."
Legislation to free the livestock
j producer of alleged control of the
| markets by the packers also was
! urged by Senator Capper, who sug
| gested establishment of co-operative
farm selling agencies.
"Price making in necessities of
life," he said, "should never again
be left to the gamblers of the ex
change or to corporate monopoly."
To counteract adverse conditions
of city life plant more trees.
