declares that union labor in America will
not surrender the liberties it possesses
under our Constitution to any such gov j
crnmeut as that set up bj Lenine and

I'he violent character of the Trotzky-
Lenine regime in Kussia is due. in a large I
measure, to th. supp'Tt given, moral if
not material, by the labor unions of Eu- |
rope. Gompers lays down the princi- ,
pie that American labor unions will add
nothing tfc that hideous travesty ou lib- |
erty now existing in Kussia. and it is a
safe statement that every intelligent and
patriotic man and woman affiliated with
trades unionism in the United States is
with Mr. Gompers in that.
There is no doubt that an insidious and
persistent propaganda is at work in this
country for the Bolshevik cause. It is un-
intelligent, ruthless and is financed with
plenty of money -largely loot taken from
the people in Kussia. A warning is
sotinued by the great labor leader against
Mr Gompers says it would be sheer
folly for the American working man to
surrender the right to vote, to bargain
collectively, and to have a voice in the
Government he lives under to come under
the dominion of two bloody tyrants like
Lenine and Trotzky. s
