DKNVKH, Nov. . Hearty applause
wai given President Samuel Gompers,
nf tho American Federation of Labor,
by tint delegates at the twenty-eighth
annual convention of the opening aca
ion today, and nlso at the clow of bis
report, which wan rend at the after
norm nession. ThlH won interpreted to
indicate there will bo no effective op

John Mitcholl said tho statement

convention in regurd to tho action of

not btt fulfilled.
Hi said it wan true there might be
a light on the nitration of allowing the
Federation to be brought into politic
in the future but ho does not think
(tamper will be censured for bin purt
played in Hupportlng Bryan.
In tlni part of (tampers' report deal-
tng with the Duck Stove and Itange
ninpany injunction, he was frequently
interrupted by uppluuso.

Jmw anyone can comply fully with
tlic court's order. Ho said:
"Shall we be denied the right of
free speech, free preso, aud simply
because wo are workmen t"
(lomperH said tho ciiho would be used
i precedent for further encroach
ments upon the rlghta of people, and
tbe decision of the miprome court in
the Uatteni' com involved overy wage
earner in the country.
"No more unjust decision wun ever
issued by a court," declared tbe labor
leader, "the Dred Scott decision did
not approach it in acopo."
In regard to congress ho said:
"Speaker Cannon has packed the
committees, not only against labor,
l""t against any other real reform leg
islation. Congrcw adjourned with a
defiant declaration of Sherman that
tho Republican party was responsible
for any legislation or failure of legis
lation, and he and hla party were will
inj to assumo tho responsibility."
"The report of our legislative com'
mlttoo rovoalH a talc of perfidy to the

perforce besmirches the namo and his
tory of the political party that found

at the time of his lust election but
lacked authoritative confirmation.
Tiioagh Gov. Utter' announcement of
the other day was made, ho any, jwith
out previous consultation with Senator
Aldrich, there is no reason to doubt
his reliability. Indeed, Gov. Utter
says it was with difficulty Senator Al
drich was persuaded from publicly
making the announcement three years
ago when the Rhode Island legislature,
for the fifth consecutive time, elected
him to the senate.
There is no oilier member of the
senate whoiie impending retirement
could be of Mich largo significance as
is that of Senator Aldrich, for his
leadership nf the dominant party in
the upper house of congress has for
many years been undisputed. Asso

have been hucIi men n Allison of

WASHINGTON, Nov. O.-Tho Pro
hibitionists hno given the country a
new idea in the matter nf campaign
contributions. One thousand members
of fhit priy t.jiv pledged them
soiree to pay into the party treasury
a certain sum each year for the ncit
four years. TliU means thnt tho Pro
hibitionists will begin their neit na
tional enmpajgn with n nucleus of
$2.1,000 toward an adequate campaign
The idea has lnterFn"pomtnent

they ask, should not the older ' partits
begin now raising funds for the cam.
pnign of 10I15f A high official of the
administration, who has bad much ex
perience in tbe collection of campaign
funds, is enthusiastic over the idea. It
ought not to be difficult, be declared,
to find 10,000 Republicans who would
pledgo themselves to pay $10 n year;
150,000 who would pny $5 a year; GO,
000 who would pay $1! a year, and
100,000 who would pay $1 a year.
This would mean an Income of $400,
000 a year. The collection of the
money, of course, would involve n lot
of clerical work and considerable ex
pense and it would bo necessary to
maintain a considerable forco of em
ployes at permanent party headquar
ters. The cost of the headquarters,
the official figures, would bo In the
neighborhood of $100,000 a year, but

If both parties were to adopt this
