Mr. Samuel Gompebs. discussing the striko mania in Washington on Tuesday evening, told 10,000 Hbor union pamders: \Bis business had detfnttely de- termined to glvo labor, because of its growing strength, a blpw be- tween the eyes.\ , What Mr. GoMr-EB- means when ho says \labor\ is union labor, and thus we refer to It when we ask: Who hit Union labor between the eyes when the steel strike was engineered, launched and lost? There were no differences between tlicsteel employer nnd the steel cm-- 1 ployee over wages. The wages had I bcens Increased frequently nnd heav- - j ily. They were higher, much higher, than the level of similar occupations, Both employer and employee were agreed as to that. There were no differences between the steel employer nnd the steel employee over hours. Both were agreed as to them. There were no differences between the steel employer and the steel employee over Other terms. Both said no. What happened was that- - outside Union organizers and agitators went (o'tfie management of the open shop Steel mills and demanded that It turn the mills Into closed shops, with thj Organization by the outsiders of tho non-unio- n men Into union whether they wanted to be so unlnnlred or not fincn nutstfto .organizers, and . adtn ors threatertef thnf tf their\ orders oheved frier would fie hp tho union not ol uiw Winn) niuuir.v. i! j Te outIde orfranlzern and a.a-- j ; tors men it. iney puiiea out or.jne;r work thousands of lenorant foreign- ers so deluded by the aeitatora or s self-delnd- that they believed they wero actually going to get paid by the steel mills for being on strike. The deceived foreigner actually went to the mills to collect tho wnges ther thought they were getttne from the mills for striking against the mills. These outside organizers and arf-- t a tors cost such poor creatures their earnings for weeks. They cost others their earnings. They cost Uw steel workers, the steel Industry dnd the nation altogether tens of millions of dollars. But ,neT dw not tle UP tno steel mills. They did not make closed shops of the open shop mills. They Just blew up. Who hit union labor between the eyes then? Who bit union labor between the eyes when the President of the United States called a national conference to try to establish better relations be- tween every employer and every em- ployee ln the Interest of tie public? Mr. Samuel Gompebs. representing union lnbor in thnt conference, first Btrove to use the conference to save the day for his fellow agitators nnd leaders who bad called the striko against the steel mills and had lost it. Next he tried to distort the confer- ence into nn lndorscr of collective bar-gdnl- by nnd through unions only. Finally, because his resolution on theso lines was defeated, he bolted the conference nnd broke It up. Thus ho nrouscd ths American people against union bulldozing. Who hit union la- bor between the eyes then? Who hit uniou labor between tho tyes when the longshoremen ln New York violated their contracts and pledges with the national Government nnd tied up tbo shipping of this port? They havo lost their own earnings. They have cost thousands of others their earnings. They have crippled tho commerce of the Port of New York. They have discommoded the vbole country. Tbey hnve alienated public sentiment. They have, In truth, outraged and Infuriated the public. Who hit union labor between the eyes then? Who will hit union labor between tho eyes If the soft coal miners wnlk out night? President Wil son says tho officers of the minors made u binding Agreement with the United States Government to continue work until the peace treaty became effective or until April 1, 1020. But Whether tho miners did or did not so understand their agreement with tho United States Government there 1 no tjiifstlon about the following facts: These officers, without a voto of the w'oora themselves, hava demanded nj working period of twenty-flT- e or thirty! uours a wecx ana an iucrenQ ul w por cent. In pay for It. Tjieso officers, without a vote of tho miners themselves, havo ordered n ,., , Bl.. ,,!.. ui.vnv ..,i'v iholr arbitrary and prcpostoroue do-- , , . . These olnccrs, without A vote of the mInor, lemsclvcSi hnV8 rcfueca to any ncRotlntlona. I Tlicso odlccra, without a vote of the miners tliomcelvea, havo challenged President Wjmon, tho Government of the United States and tho American , pooplo to keep the mines operating, thousn to 'close tiicm down moans to .,11.1,1. lnriiiBrl k1nfe tYtlt nation', railroad., throw the nation's wage earners out of work ana starvo ana irecze tno Americnn people. When the Americnn pcoplo and their Government havo shown these aennnt, domineering oiucers 01 me miners mat nauonni soveitJigmy not lodged In the coal unions, as it la I not lodged In any other unions, who will hnvo hit union labor between thq eyes then? What Their Flection Would Mean. Tho election of Major La Gpabdia would put a now nnd much needed element In the Board of Estimate. Aa President of tbo Board of Aldermen he would hnvo three votes, and bo Is a good fighter, Tho election of Major McCook and Justice Newuusoeb Is the means of rebuking; Murphy for trying to fill the Supreme Court bench with hla personal choices. A boss doesn't care what's thought of his methods If he can Oil the offices. The election of Richard n. Smith: nnd his Republican associates on the City Court ticket would be n second blow nt Mubphy for refusing to re- nominate n good Judge. The election of James 0'Mau.et would prevent the Surrogates' Court, with its great powers and responsibili- ties, from falling into the hnnds of n enndidato personally selected by Mr. Murphy. The election of Henbt n. Cuwiah ns President of the Borough of Man hattan would enable nn expert on city KOvernment to cast two votes In the Board of Estimate. Cobban and La Guardia would form a powerful and useful combination against extrava- gance and stupidity. By All Means Call Colonel Tlonse. Our correspondent In Paris quotes ns typical of the present French view of American reluctance to accept with out change or question the covenant of tbo League of Nations this utter- ance by Lc Qaulois: \It seems Impossible that a ma- jority tof the Senatel will disavow the work of the Conference, which was above nil, let us not forget, the personal work of President Wilson. The political differences which exist In America cannot affect AraerlcVo international engagements,\ The misunderstanding here la ob- - vlous. Thei source of that .mlsurtder. apparent. k \The French newspaper's mistake. proceeds from tho notion that the,pflr! ,sonal work of President Wilson while' abroad completed an interna; 1 1 una I engagement on the part of the AmerlcarGovernmenL It is unnecessary to explain to any-bod- y familiar with the Constitution of the United States that it waa not In the power of any American partici- pant in the deliberations of the Peace Conference, no matter how eminent his official position or how firmly fixed his personal conviction that hu was representing nn actual If unas- certained sentiment among tho peo- ple of his country, to conclude on his own responsibility any International engagement binding upon America, This Is as true of small affairs as of great. Our Republic does not make treaties that way. Unfortunate In the extreme, as af- fecting the .fulness of the understand- ing between the people nnd the Gov- ernment of the United States and the peoples and Governments of the friendly Powers associated with us In the war against a common enemy, was the steady growth of a contrary opin- ion during the months between the President's first nrrtval In Europe and his finnl departure for home.\ The entirely false conception of our con- stitutional process of concluding Inter- national engagements which haB arisen ln the minds of Intelligent for- eigners is Illustrated by the foregoing remarks of tho Paris newspaper. Of course the responsibility for tho misunderstanding is Individual and not national so far ns tho United States Is concerned. To a certain ex- tent 'the Individual responsibility for It has already been determined by the record of those addresses by tho Presi- dent when nbrond which created ln tho first place the mistaken Impres sion as to tho extent of his ppwer to commit this Government. But there tiro many thlnps the Senate does not yet know regarding the genesis and exact character of these \In- ternational engagements\ or commit- tals in tho absence of power to com- - mit.

This may have been a ahrowd turn on tho port of McOooey to save bis Jon, but U does not Justify his candidate's campaign slogan \Con tinue 8urrogato Wimoate.\ Under the circumstances this appeal for votes seems plain humbug. The Republican candidate for Kings county Is Colonel James Crooks Mc-Lxx-s, an experienced Inwyer of abil- ity and Integrity, whose temperament and character glvo assurance that If elected he will perform tho duties of that office with credit to hlmsolf and Impartial Justice to the public. Colonel McLeeb la the son of Gen- eral James McLccsa veteran of tho civil war, who was severely wounded In tho service. Colonel McLeer en- listed as a private In Trujp C nnd served as a sergeant diirtbg the Spanish-Am- erican war. He rose to tho rank of Lloutenant-Colone- l of the First New York Cavalry, with which he served nine months on the Mexi- can border. In our war agalnsi Ger- many he went to Franco In command of the Twenty-sevent- h Division Trnln, was later with the Third United States Cavalry, nnd returned to the United States In command of the 116th Ammunition Trnln the latter part of February of this year.

For example, we havo between 600,000,000 and 700,000,000 acres of public lands yet the property of th Government We have about 70,000,- -. 000 acres of coal land yet th prop erty of the Government: we have about 6,000,000 acres of oil lands still j the nropertv of the Government: we have 166,000,000 acres of forest re- serves still the property of the and somo two or three mill- ion acres of phosphite land proluo-in- g phosphate to improve\ the Impov- erished soils of the Government and still the property of the Government And this proposed taw makes.poasiule the use, the development and conser- vation of those great reiources.\ And in thus hastily calling attention to some of the country's available and as yet untouched natural resources the speaker did not mention the water power obtainable from Government controlled streams or the mlltl s of acres of shale lands rich In and fUei. just a hint of the co .vry'a woalth waltlnu to reward capital and the labor of men unafraid of work.

(2) Eight thousand three hundred Lowland Scotchmen brought over by the a..i. ,tj...i . ..i.i i. . ... ..u uy ii tn certain sections of the remaining nve counties. (S) Aboriginal Irish who \conformed to the religion of his Majesty's I.'s In to retain their lands. (4) Aboriginal Irish did not con- form were assigned various lands. The population of Ulster nt that time was about 600,000. so the new- comers formed about part of the population. Moreover mnrrled native women.
