HEADS OF THREE STATE FEDERATIONS MEET
The meetings of the heads of the A. F. of L. State Federations
of three states in Charlotte Saturday and Sunday, brought to
gether men who have labored early, late and long for the benefit
of mankind, the sanctity of the home, the preservation of the
Liberty we so dearly love, and the right of the worker to share a
portion of the profits of Capital. Conservative to the extreme
yet militant regarding the rights of the worker, these men dis
cussed from every angle conditions confronting labor at the pres
ent time, and the means to be used to keep business upon an even
keel. Future contracts for construction, both governmental and
private, were gone into; conditions that exist, and may arise, were
threshed out, and ap rogram was mapped out, to meet these con
ditions, in order that the worker may not be made the stepping
stone to enormous profits by those in the “higher brackets.
The talks were made in the open; everyone who cared so to
do, had an open door to discussion; and again, The Journal says,
as it has said before, that the A. F. of L. has nothing to hide;
though mistakes may have been made, by which it has profited,
and that today it stands as one of the principal Bulwarks to the
Liberty of America. ....... .
The Southern branch of the A. F. of L. is in the hands of
George L. Googe, of Atlanta; he is a Southerner, an American of
the old school! a lover of right, and one who at all times has
stood for a fair deal and a square deal for capital and Labor.
The meeting was a success; much good was accomplished;
and a plan mapped out by which the units of labor in the South
will be guided. , ,
Last, but not least, let’s pay a little tribute to our local labor
men, especially those in the building trades— To H. L. Kiser and
Lon Conder, president and secretary, respectively of the Building
Trades Council much credit is due for the manner in which they
handled the meeting at the courthouse Sunday afternoon and the
labor they are both putting out for the building trades (and other
unions) in Charlotte.
A TRIBUTE TO W. A. BRADSHAW VETERAN MACHINIST
A letter from Savannah, Ga., Forest City Lodge No. 23,1. A.
of M., summons him to be present at the first meeting in January,

He is loved in Charlotte, every member of every craft in the
A. F. of L., as well as every worker, holds him in high esteem, and
his loyalty is unquestioned. So, Mr. Bradshaw, The Journal hands
you a bouquet in Be, which will go along with your medals and
watches, which he been presented you.

THE WORLD IS SAFE (?) FOR DEMOCRACY
“Me and God” said Emperor Wilhelm, that was in the “World
War, when America sent its boys oversea to “Save the World
for Democracy.” Now a blatantusurper, mad with the hist of
power and world dominion, says ‘We Will Defeat the Entire
^°,rld ” uAndu8?i. PJTLE.R.0F HELL” takes »P the Herculean
task. “How hath the mighty fallen,” and “he that boaateth,”
etc., will as surely as God lets the sun rise and set, see his doom.
Napoleon, a grand, great warrior, with his world
ambition, wm a piker (and a gentleman, despite his love affairs)
compared with Hitler. Sometimes one wonders how a man. who
regards the SPENDING OF THE LIVES OF HIS SUBJECTS
as a mere matter of a day’s routine, can lay himself down in re
pose, and that God will let that man sleep, when he knows that his
own people are suffering—to say nothing of the misery impn^
upon others—that massacre, rape, devastation; destruction of
the art of ages, even the civilization, built up through the cen
turies are facing extermination.
America is NEUTRAL, but is lending aid to Britain; Amer
ica is as much at war today as Britain is; for with Britain’s de
feat, as Hitler says, “AMERICA WILL BE NEXT—AND LAST.”
But—he will find another Britain to defeat, only of a stronger
and a more diversified territory than he found in Britain, if and
when he defeats the British.
Hitler plays the “HAVES” and “HAVE NOTS” up to Labor
and his people, but American Labor knows too well that slavery
is in store for labor under German rule; American Labor knows too
well that Britain has been fair to organization and freedom of the
laborer; and American Labor knows too well that with the fall of
Britain, American Labor will be left to fight alone, and the Capital
ist who is fighting Labor will have nothing to fight it with, for
along with Labor he will be absorbed:
