TIIE WASHINGTON TIMES, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1912.
FACE A. F. OF L
Attitude of Labor Body to
Politics Among Impor
CONVENTION HALT ItOCltESTEIt,
" Y., Nov. 12. Four question of vital
Importance lo the future of organized
labor are occupying the attontlci of tlio
American Federation of t,alor. In an
nual session In this city. All will bo dis
posed of before the convention finally
"Mourns, but It seems certain tnrtr.y
that a brisk contest will precede a di 11
nlto decision. In order tlio problems to
bo met are:
Complete organization of tile plants of
tlio great steel corporations. Including
tho United Htatcs Htecl Company.
Continuation of the struggle to union
ize tho metal trades on tho I'aclllc roast
and to unlonlzo nil Los Angeles In
dustries. To definite methods to '. e pursued In
dealing with tho Industrial Workjrs of
tho World uhero the Interest of the
two organizations clash
To decide whether labor shall main
tain Its present Independent nolltlcal
attitudes or go directly into politics us
So far us thu unionization of the
fc,eel Industry anil the t'icinc. ir ust
features are concerned the efforts of
the past year hava been dlscouiuglng.
Outside of San Kranclsco the coast or
ganizations hae not met with the
success desired. In the unionizing of
the plants of the I'nlied Ktutei situ I
Corporation the organizers have en
countered serious obstacles, most of
tho skilled workers having remained
aloof while the unskilled woikers have,
been Joining the Industrial Workers in
Ilecause of this the question of deal
ing with the Industrial Workers of the
Wofld loomed up today as most mo
mentous. None of the delegates would
discuss It, hut privately nil admitted
that It would have to be dealt with.
The Industilal Workers' leaders. Vin
cent St. John. William I Haywood,
and others, am bitterly opposed to the
federation, and denounce It at every
opportunity. At Lawrence, Mass., and
In Little Kails, N. Y , at the present
time, the two organizations ale at war,
and the present convention must deride
what will be dono when the big clash,
now seemingly Inevitable, conies In con
nection with the steel Industry.
When the convention resumed Its ses
sions today It was the consensus of
opinion that strong resolutions denounc
ing compulsorv arbitration, as at present
proposed, would be udopted. President
Oompcrs opened the way by declaring
In his nnnual address yesterday that
"law or no law, the workers would
always reserve as their last weapon of
defense the right to strike."
Most of the morning session was de
voted to routine committee reports.
