SAMUEL GOMPERS RE-ELECTED
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 24. American
Federation of Labor elected Samuel
Gompers president for another year
by a practically unanimous vote, and
selected Philadelphia as the 1914 con
vention city. The attempt of the in
surgents to defeat Gompers for re
election fell flat. John Mitchell, who
withdrew from the executive council
of the federation, was succeeded as
second vice-president by James
O'Connell. John White, president of
the United Mine Workers, was elect
ed seventh vice president of the Fed
eration. The electrical workers' fight ended
in complete victory for so-called Mc
Nulty faction. Friends of the Reid
Murphy faction failed in an attempt
to put through a resolution denounc
ing the McNulty faction's acts in the
Pacific Gas & Electrical Co.'s strike.
The strikes in Colorado and Mich
igan were endorsed by the federation
and the executive council was in
structed to investigate charges that
copper companies in Michigan are
holding land taken from the public
domain by fraud and if this is sub
stantiated, to demand that the gov
ernment institute suit.
