Speak of Lnbur's Past, Present
and Future Hinging Resolutions
Adopted Denouncing the Iluzietuu
Tlie lieuvy artillery of the American
Federation of Labor was heard last night
,it Electrical Workers' Hall, on "Louisiana
avenue. The era'ut of the speeches, as
v. asituended, willunnoubtedly be to give au
Impulse to ltcr an d more enlarged orgaui
zMion intlie Dihtnct of Columbia.
TUeiieetiug was held under the auspices
-tit Hie Building Tr.idcs Council, of the
city. Mi. "William Silver made an ex
cellent presiding -officer, introducing all
the speakers very fluently.
At the close of Uie meeting a preamble
and resolutions were read. They were
jiohiiive, but temperate iu tone. The reso
lution inveighed asainst the recent killing
of miners as a crime against. American
liberty, audcalldd for tne arraignment, trial
audpunlsiuncutof their slayers.
They protested against government by
injunnlon, and affirmed the purpose of
tlie trade unionists tf enforce all their
demands tl.r.wgh legal channels. They de
dnr-ii"rjr equality or treatrnentaa between
tlie rich and tlie poor, ami the desire of the
I&loring man to stand equally with all
Classes tie fore the lav.'.
I'lemlfut Silver, of the Building Tradus
Council, made an introductory address, iu
-winch lie stated the purpose of the meet
ing, referring in complimentary terms to
the speakers of the evening.
President Gumncrs spoke first. He said,
in part, that he was a ""iVasliingtoninu now,
and it Would be unfair to trench on tho
time of the distinguished speakers. It
was due the occasion, however, to say
something on the very peculiar and acute
conditions of the day. From all time
latxir had to struggle and contest for Its
ii'wjrty aiKLiu order that the burdens might
Today, us of old, the wealth possessors
were opposed as a force to the labor,
anil as a general rule the governmental
iorees were with the former. The masses
i:ad to fight for themselves and whatever
liberties taey have achieved. The posses
sors of wealth, .agnin, were always free,
whether here or under the greatest despot
isms. The toiler had always to be alert
for the -preservation of the liberty he won
Tt.e struggle bctweeirthe wealth possessor
and tbc labor took on many pliates until
iu this century began the plans of in
timidation. Labor combined, but crowned
heds and courts combined against labor.
Men were sent to prisons and their graves
in defense of organization, but there was
a change when States and the General
Government recognized it as n right and
not as a -ousplracy. So the new element
in the economic struggle was born.
i!r. Gompers here referred, as one or
tlie 'orces acting against labor, to goeru
ment by injunction, tne right to which was
exer Iscdnowoven b.vthecourtsorcrun''ery.
Tills put the world back again to the law
agnlnit conspiracy, a dangerous power as
it was exercised by the judge alone. Mr.
iiouipers tiltimraiud ui t- io -i t
recent history In "West Virginia, where,
as In the case or Judge Mason, he acted
as petitiouei , attorney, party In interest
and Jodge of his own case. All this was
against the spirit or the Constitution, a
flagrant abuse of the principles of lib
The time must come, however, wlien
they, as all things against oiganized !aln.r,
miiat go. (Applause.) Capital could do
Its worst, I ut there could never in the eud
be a wrong against the republic as long
a the laloring men shall "stand together
and preserve what was established by
"Washington. Jefferson and Taine.
Mr- Gompers predicted that, with the
perfection of union'siu, with all traden
organised, tppciulized and classified, and
with calm appeals to their fellow-men, all
wtontrs will be righted under American in
stitulionc. There was nothing to be
gaiued from passion, but with enlightened
methods they could furnish a remedy for
aU wrongs, II there were no factions. JJivi
Mon was to be deplored, but never be
foie In the history of the country wad
there so much unanimity as there was to
day (Applause). At the close of. Ilia
speech Mr- Gompers referred to "the marr
who led the masses to victory ,' Mr.
Ratchforu, to v hich sentiment the meeting
responded with applause. This meant
that the tendency was upward; that the
worst was over. The shooting of the
miners he chnrnrtcrled as a crime against
American liberty. (Applause).l It was
a butcherv that had shocked the conscience
of the American peoplo. But it could
never again happen with perfected organ
President Katchford was received with
great applause. After thanking the meet
ing for its Interest iu tli3 occasion lie said
he would Uscus the strike and its causes.
He regretted that the miners' organization
had been accused or too frequent quarrels
On the contrary it had been conservative
and had been forced Into hostility with
the employer In truth it was the lack,
of organization which led to the troubles
Mr Ratchford traced the cause of the
trouble to the ever increasing tide of
foreign lsbor. He was not opposed to
foreign lalnir by men who came here to
obey our laws and fight under our flag
(Applause. He was not In favor of those
who come here to work for starvatioa
wages. For the past four years when
the building of railroads ceased swarms oi
foreign laborers were dumped into the
mines There was something wrong in
the law which protected labor-saving
machines and which invited here hundreds
f tlwusantls of workers to take the place
of American laborers. (Applause ) The
mine owners, by macMuery with one man
can produce a vast deal of coal, so that the
wages, in Ohio, for instance, are about
SIS. to a month: and the miners obliged
to live on the mine owner's lands and in
his houses ""flie miners were to poor
that tliey had no choice but to remain
Besides, the miner had to deal at the mine
owner's truck stores, In which it took
rik. tons of coal to pay for one sack of
flour. They practically had nothing at
the end of the month.
Mr. Ratchford claimed that It was the
miners' organization which resisted the
reduction of G -cnts per ton, but in the
end forced an advance of 5 cents a ton,
(Applause ) Generally, he was not satis
iicd with a settlement, which was not
full, but circumstances sometimes altered
caes. Had all the miners beeu in, how
ever. ' hero would ha e been nocoinprnmise.
It was tne miners themselves who defeated
the miners. Tlie supply of coal was kepc
up by some miners who were not in the
organization As long as such a condition
existed no settlement would ever be com
plete (Applause.) It could only be by
perfect organization that tho perfect fruits
of a btriko could be obtained. He would
not, however, counsel radicalism, but con
servatism and practical work (applause),
lrot mor-j milk and water resolutions.
Labor must have with It the mtddlo
classes to succeed, because if not, the
middle class Avlil ully itself with tin
capitalistic classes. In conclusion, lie
thanked the trade unionists of Wash
ingtou for their support in the -strike,
also the prt"3 and the public One opera
tor, indod, had raid: "Ratchford, you
didn't whip us, it was public opinion."
As a result, the , branches or organized
labor had beeu Avoided together more
closely, as tho corporations and truots
had been banned together and organized
years ago. No organisation should be l.or
niitted to fight alone. (Applause, i- Tue
victory or one should he the vlolpry or all.
Mr. Jumps Duncan, se.enil vice presi
dent of the American-Feileratiou of Labor
discussed first thjJewonB or unrestricted
immigiation. HeJoke ol the evils of the
padrone system and the special evils on
speciol trades. He mentioned .specifically
the Finns, who stayed here only for about
two years and returned to their own coun
try, anu who had reduced the wages of-
pa ers to less than CO per cent of what
they were five a ears ago. Mr. Duncan
uiugratulatcd the "Washington building
tradet- on the icsltion they occupied iu
relation tc the immigration bill before
Congress. Mr. Duncan made tlie point
that the literary test as to Immigrants was
not the highest- and liest, because prospec-.
tivii immigrants might be educated roi
the purpoKes of the test.
Mr. Duncan touched next on tlie eight
hour law question. He believed that such
a law could be as well enforced by com
mon consent of tlie labor unions as by Cou
gressltself. lApplause.) Mr. Duncan quoted
with great applause the action of Grant
iu 1872 granting an eight-hour rule to
Government contract Ialxifers In Richmond
He also showed how the eiuployeis had
eventually inveigled the workmen back
to a ten-hour day. There had been many
aiueuuiUMits made and suggested to per
fect the law, but the.American Federation
tif Labor Intended to stay with the Govern
ment until the law would be as the labor
ing man desired. (Applause). He was in
for the right, and would remain in it till
tlie public, the constitutional lawyers, aud
Congress had been educated up to the jus
tice of the workingiiian'fl demands In this
relation. The best way to enforce the law
was for the labor organlzatlonsto icsolve
not to wark more tliau eight Iiouth a day
Mr. Miller, formerly vice president of the
Ualtcu Mine Workers Union, made a
brief but capital f-psech. in which he demon
siratcii the value of union in work as in
the recent strike. Mr. Miller said that
it was hib experience that it was not the
Hun, the Pole, the Slav or the Finn
who were hardest to load, but the English
men, in? Irishmen and tho Scotchmen. He
paid tribute to the foreigner of any class
which would play lis part In the settle
ment of troubles. It was not always the
American who stood first in support or
organized lntior. He was, however, ab
solutelj opposed to the admission of tho
vicious class which could not and would
not subscribe to and fight for American in
siltutions (applause). He acknowledged
the help ot the "Washington trades finan
cially toward the settlement ot the strike.
He nlso acknowledged tho favor of the
press, which molded public opinion and
aided in the great material and moral
Mr P. J. MtGulre, of Philadelphia, first
vice president of the American Federation
of Labur, said thut it was not the cap
italists or the press that was to be feared,
but the sucker. tApplause.) What was
cedcl was rot, in Tact, the chlvalrj of
the olden time, but the chivalry of indus
try, which would mako tho fraternity
which Christ spoke of, and which would
come again when men were 'men to each
other. tApplause.) One great trouble w-as
that tholulioring man had depended more
on the law than on himself. (Applause.)
That Was perhaps best demonstrated by
the fact that the granite cutters had main
tained their wages since 18G8-
Mr. McGuire believed not lu a religion
whioh was good for only one day In thi:
week, but for 305 days In the year. It
was the spirit or self-sacrifice that would
produce a golden rule from which the new
religion could b preached- (Applause.)
Mr. M Garland, of Philadelphia, traced
in a very interesting manner the progress
or trades unionism from tlie time of Queeu
Elizabeth to the present. He maintained
that the present methods were the moEt
advanced, but that the methods would be
improved as time progressed- Mr. Garland
aid not believe much in waiting on tho
ballot to settle a matter. (Applause ) If
the miners recently had waited until 1900
to settle the difficulty, It probably would
never have be-3n settled- The trades unioiic
or Feunsvlvnnia had already secured seven
good laws in favor of the laboring man.
lApplau-e.) Tho speaker dwelt at some
length on tho various fights made by
trades unionism against the encroach
ments of i-apital, from the Homestead trou
bios (ill the present day. The trend wus
onward, at-d it could be expected that in
time even Injunctions shall notbe exercised
to the detriment of thelabDrer. (Applause.
Mr. James O'Councll, ot tlie A. F. L.,
made a short closing speech, in which he
spoke of the great sympathy of all trades
unionists with tliat of the miners, and the
usual effect of such support. (Appiaue.)
In May next the great blow would be
struck for 'the eight-hour day. Then the
liboring man would be asked to stand up
and pledge himself never again to work
more than eight hours a day. They were
not to ask it as a favor, but as a right.
(Applause.) It was high time for tho
laboring man to know that he was him
H'if responsible for a great many or his
In conclusion Mr. 0'Connell prophesied
a great moral and industrial effect from
the victory or the miners.
After tfaa addresses and the adoption of
the lesolutions the meeting adjourned.

that "tho 8tate rests," in the Luetgert
aa ile-murder trial. No more witnesses avIU
b: called b3' the State, except, perhaps,
by way ot rebuttal.
The morning session of the court was
rradc interesting, first, because Judge
Tulhill allowed the State to call Avit
ne.sses in an attempt to prove that Luet
gert had a motive in getting rid of his

fered In his affalrb with other women,
notably Mary Sicmmcring.
To proA-c this the prosecution placed on
the stand Frank Bialk, the watchman,
and Frank Odorof fski, Avho swore to fre
quent visits on the part of Mary to the
factory at night. Bialk and Odoroffsk.
also testified that Luetgert received numer
ous A'islts at the factory from other Avomea.
Then Mr. McEAven formally tendered tho
tangible bits of evidence. Each bit of bone,
properly designated by a mark shoAving
the number ot exhibit, the piece of false
tooth, the rigs, a hairpin, bits of wire
and pieces of corset steels were offered
separately and each Avas. formally ob
jected to by Mr. "Vincent.
His motions to strike out all this evi

by the court, the State's couusel gaA-e the

Secretory Bliss ordered yesterday after
noon thitthe leindeer at Teller Reindeer
Station, Alaska, be driven to St. Michael's
and tnere held tn readiness to transport
supplies into the gold regions ot tire
Yukon, should the necessity arise.
This- suggestion probably originated with
Dr. Sheldon Jackson, ot the Bureau urEdu
cation. avIio Is at prteiit In Alaska, and
through Avhose efforts the introduction ot
Asiatic reindeer into Alaska was brought
Teller Station is 225 miles from St.
Michael's There are 500 reindeer at "this
statiou, eighty ot Avliich are trained to the
sled. The idea ot the department is
that just us soon as the cry ot hungry
miners is heard from the gold dlggtugs,
1,700 miles awaj, these Arctic beasts ot
burden shall be loaded and sent eastward
Hot R. K Anderson, ex-minister to Den
mark, is quoted by the department ashaA
ing said that a reindeer will draw a sled
load or 300 pounds at the rate ot lOo
miles a day, and subsist on the moss that
grjws bounti rutty throughout Alaska.
The following letter was received by
Secretary Bliss from Dr. Jackson, dated
at St. Nicholas. August 23.
'I was accompanied up the Yukon by
A. Kjellniann, who I took with me to
make an examination of the A-alley of the
Yukon, with reference to the introduction
of reindctr int the mines, and by mutual
ubmjrvation to learn of the conditions under
which the reindeer freighters will be com
pellcd to AVurk. Mr. Kjellniann was Avell
satisfied Avlth the results of the trip."
