Railroad Magnets and Represent
atives of Railway Firemen Meet
in Deliberate Conference.
-Minneapolis, Nov. 13. The recent
political activity of the American
V deration of Labor occupied a prom
inent place la the report of the exe
cutive eoaacil, which was read today
at the convention of the federation.
The report deflaes the attitude of or
ganised labor towards politics. The
America Federation, the report says,
toes not contemplate the formation of
a distinct political party. It does not
intend to dictate the party member
ship of any union man. But it does
propone to suggest legislative meas
ures of advantage to labor and to Be
cure the nomination and election of
representatives favorable to such en
Indeoendent Votina Proposed.
"We have never opposed politics in
our organization," says the report,
"although we have always opposed
partisan politics. Independent voting
with an eye single to the interests of
labor Is mrged upon all members of
Hfnlhucd unions. '

GREATEST MONEY POWER EVER

COUP ONLY ONE OF THE DE
TAILS IN THE BRINGING TO
GETHER OF THE THREADS OF
A GREAT NATIONAL ROAD TO
BE WORTH BILLIONS OF DOL
LARS AND TO BE CONTROLLED
BY FOUR BIG MONEY FAMILIES.
New York, Nov. 12. Under the
beetling crags of Wall street a new
and mammoth money power Is gradu
ally taking form.
It is freely asserted today that tne
Ultimate object of this staggering fin
ancial movement is to bring under
the capitalistic control of a few pow
erful interests a national railroad
which will far exceed in reality the
ancient dream of a trans-continental
system and will. In fact, spread over
the length and breadth of the nation
like a web.
There are now. according to the
Wiall street view, nine groups of rail
road capitalists in the United States
as follows: Vanderbilt, Pennsylvania,
Harrlman, Rockefeller, Hill, Morgan,
Gould, Moore and Santa Fe. Three-
quarters of all the railroads of the
country are In these hands. - They
nave a combined mileage of 146,082.
They are worth more than $7,000,000,
000, or about 7 per cent, of the esti
mated total wealth of the nation.
Wilthlu a month, rumor, always the
forerunner of fact in the street, has
flooded the trading places of stock
merchants, coupling four of the nine
great groups in a community of in
terest." It is now an established fact
that the Vanderbilt, Pennsylvania,
Rockefeller and Harrlman Interests ar"
in harmony, and the street sees indi

the financial consolidation of the won

Whether the plan is conceived from
his tortuous brain, it is nevertheless
the fact that he has been selected as
the general of the Rockefellers, Van

has always won great favor.

SESSION AT PHIL
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 13. The
Divorce Congress opene4 its proceed
ings here today. Judge Staake, the
secretary, announced that he had re
ceived communications from promi
nent men all ovtr the country hoping
that the draft of the bill which would
be submitted to the meeting would be
approved of and adopted by congress.
Delegates to the number of 700 from
41 states In the Union were In attend
ance In the Clover Room of the Bell-vuo-Stratford
hotel when proceedings
commenced. The principal speakers
were Governor Samuel W. Pennypack-
r, who has taken a very active Inter
est in tho movement; Bishop W. C.
uoaue or Albany; tlio Rev. W. H.
Roberts; Bishop A. W. Wilson, and
Francis Lynde Stetson, of the lnter-
cburcu conference. The object or the
congress as stated by Governor Pen-
nypacker Is to secure uniformity In
the divorce laws of the states and In
the practice of their courts in dealing
with divorce cases. It is Intended by
the congress to recommend legislation
to this end. It will agree upon its
recommendations and these should im
mediately be adopted by the legisla
tures or the various states without
any unnecessary delay, as well as by
the judicial tribunals. Bishop Wilson
pointed out the evils arising from the
great diversity In our divorce laws and
tlie necessity for immediately remedy
ing them. He explained that as mai
lers now stand It Is possible to obtain
divorces much too easily and fre
quently without any adequate notice.
People who are recognized as being
divorced in one state are held lo bo
still married in another and, as a re
sult, much injury Is done to innocent
partks. Grounds for severing the mar
riage tie In one state are held Insufli
(ieut in another, while the decisions
of the federal courts differ, from those
in some of the state tribunals upon
this subjiK-t. Tho law association of
Philadelphia has anuounoed thut ail
delegates can have access to their
library. The draft of the uniformity
divorce luw has been prepared and ui
