(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.)
Chicago, Dec. IS.?The conference on
arbitration and conciliation, which
passed Into industrial history with its
adjournment tonight, was enlivened
during the day by a debate between
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, and
I Inch II. Lusk, ex-member of Parlia?

New SSealander took exception to Mr.
Gomper'a declaration last night, that
he wanted to see labor organizers re
tntn the privilege of striking when
liny pleased, why they pleased, or
merely because they pleased.
"That is not liberty," cried Mr.
Lusk. "'It Is license. Mr. Gompers
wauls conciliation and lie says you can
never have any conciliation unless you
; re ready to cut one another's throats.
Well, If that is the unfortunate con
ditlon of the people of America, 1 am
sorry for them."
During th<? afternoon Mr. Gompers
secured the stage and reiterated his us

answers, which bewildered the audi?

that during the hearing of a dispute

THE) ASSOCIATED PUESS WINS
(By Telegraph to Virginian-PUot.)
St. Louis, Dec. IS.?The Supreme
Court of Missouri, sitting at Jeffer?
son City, today handed down an opin?
ion in the case of the Star Publish?
ing Company versus tho Associated
Press of Illinois, deciding the case
unanimously in favor of the Associat?
The Star Company was engaged In
publishing an evening newspaper In
St. Louis, known ,rts The Star, and It
brought suit for n writ of mandamus
to require the Associated Press to
serve It with the evening news report
on the same terms for which such
Service was being rendered to the Post
Dlspatoh, which was a member of the
Associated Press. The Star Company
claimed that it was not able to secure
from any source as satisfactory news
services as was furnished by the As?
sociated Press, and that the agree?
ment of the Associated Press with the
company publishing 'the Post-Dispatch,
not to furnish the evening report to
any paper, was illegal nnd in Viola?
tion of the anti-trust laws of tho
United States, of the State of Illinois,
and of the State of Missouri. The As?
sociated Press answered that while it
was in form a corporation, it was es?
sentially a co-operative society based
upon an agreement between its mem?
bers to gather and furnish news to one
another, thai It was not engaged in
news gathering as a commercial en?
terprise nnd that It carried on its bus?
iness without any effort at profit-mak?
ing, it denied that its so-called ex?
clusive contracts wore in violation of
the laws, either of the United States,
of the State of Illinois, or the State of
ASSOCIATED PBESS SISTAIN'ED.
The opinion sustains tire Associated
Press at every point. It holds that the
Associated Press is not a monopoly
ami that it does net violate the anti?
trust laws of the State of Missouri;
further than that it could not go,
holding that the anti-trust laws of
the Plate of Illinois were not
in force outside of that State and
that the nn'il-trust laws of the United
States were to be construed by and en?
forced in tho courts of the United
States. The suW has been pending tor
a Ions time, having been brought in
December* 1807. The star Company
took the testimony of Melville 12.
Stone, William Laffnn. and other
newspaper men, and men familiar with
tho business of news gathering ami

timony taken by it.
