Men With Police Records Spy on Labour

" Labour espionage is an offspring of modern finance-capitalism," writes Mr. William Corkill in a feature article in the current May issue of The Christian Front. "Evidence brought before a Senate Committee investigating strike-breaking activities reveals that there are over two-hundred spy and strike-breaking agencies at work in the United States today.

"Denying the right of the labourers to bargain collectively and freely, the modern large corporations have spent millions of dollars to suppress or vitiate all union activities. For instance, the Pennsylvania Railroad has paid the Pinkerton Agency two hundred and seventeen thousand dollars for industrial spy services during the past four years, as was testified by Robert A. Pinkerton. President of the Pinkerton Detective Agency.

" Treacherous, diabolical," continues Mr. Corkill, " the labour spy moves, poisoning at the roots all attempts on the part of labour to secure its just demands. Significantly, a large number of these spies have police and prison records.

"How," questions the author, " can Labour co-operate with vested wealth and power when such startling disclosures reveal that treachery accompanies the silky proposals of the industrial barons. Labour rightly suspects the capitalist's peace offerings,"

Holding that the system of industrial espionage practised by -most of the large corporations in America is paving the way for Communism, Mr. Corkill concludes.: " Is it any wonder that Labour is being influenced and indoctrinated by and with communistic philosophy?"
