Inaugurated must at tlie outset command
the confidence of the people. In this
country the note-issuing function was an
incident, the deposit accounts the princi

Iu order to make any system successful
the note issued must be immediutcly, not
ultimately, convertible iuto coin.
This was the first consideration. After
this came, if the banks could be given the
power to expand tho currency in times of
stringency, the two main objects of a cur
rency system would be obtained. In his
system he had proposed a pur cent, de
posit upon which bunk notes should be
issued. To tho extent of the deposit those
notes were absolutely safe. The other 60
per cent, would be secund by a safety

Denver, Dec 11. President Gorapora'
annual report was submitted to the
Federation of Labor convention, after
the preliminary business had been trans
acted, committees nppolnted, etc. He
compliments the organization upon being
able to preserve its existence during tho
recent adverse circumstances. Referring
to the coal miners' strike, he said, 125,000
nien were out for eight weeks and yet
there was hardly a dearth of coal. Con
sidering this the establishment of a
minimum rate of wages was a very great
victory. He defended the action of the
fc deration in regard to the A. K. U. 6trike
by the assertion that Debs' proposition
submitted to them was a virtual ac
knowledgment that tho strike was a
failure. President Cleveland's action at
that time ho severely condemned.
Hopea for a Government Telegraph.
The honest effort of tho government to
regulate immigration is acknowledged.
but amendments to the law6 ara sug
gested, the most important of which are
speedy trials of immigrants suspected of
being under contract and the sending of
agents to foreign countries to inspect pros
pective immigrants. Hope is expressed
that government telegraph and telephone
will soon be established in connection
with the postal department, and .unions
among government employes are recom
mended as an aid to the movement. Amer
ican seamen are claimed to lie tho worst
treated of those of any civilized nation.
The bills in their interest and also for the
protection of the cigar makers he said,
would have passed tho last session of con
gress but for the prejudicial effect of the
The Only Congressional Sunbeam.
The establishment of a national labor
day is referred to as the only sunbeam
lalior received from the last session of
congress. The convention is asked to in
dorse the Phillips bill for the creation of
an industrial commission. Copies of tlie
bill were distributed. The cfTorts of the
officers of the federation in behalf of free
coinage of silver are mentioned and a
better understanding of the subject by
laboring men generally is rejiortod. The
mutter of proposed semi-annual confer
ences with the Knights of Labor was re
ferred to the convention, bnt a ujiiun of
the organizations was not recommended.
Opposes IxMlrnenflent Political Action.
Speaking of tlie programme submitted by
the last convention to the affiliated unions
for discussion, Gompers strongly opposed
any movement looking to independent
political action by organized labor at pres
ent. Results of local attempts in this line
were cited to show the disastrous effects.
A serious strain upon lalxir organizations
was predicted for tlie coming winter, but
the speaker added: "Unless every indica
tion is incorrect and cause and effect lose
their logical sequence we are within a
year of an industrial revival which in ac
tivity and intensity will far surpass that
ol any previous period."
DEMANDS DECLARED TIMELY.
The Labor Leader Puts In a Word Against
The present time was suggested as op
portune for the inauguration of a vigorous
demand for an eight hour day and for a
law prohibiting contract work on govern
ment improvements. The proposition to
establish compulsory arbitration was de
nounced and the charge made that design
ing persons were advocating it as a means
of destroying labor organizations. Many
persons, including congressmen, had
written to him on the subject, he said,
and it was obvious to him that there was
danger of some such law being enacted.
"it Is generally BccepU-d," said he "that
in the consideration of tiic question of
compulsory arbitration there is one meaus
by which an award avainst labor could
he enforced, but that the imposition of
those conditions would be tantamount to
chattel slavery, hence the alternative prop
osition to make the organization and the
funds of the organization attachable . for
the failure of any workman to abide by
a decision which may be awarded against
us, or, in the absence of such funds, com
pcl the placing of a bond by the trade
union for the enforcement of such an
award." The speaker feared tho effect of
arbitration on the unorgunized and weak,
and said: "The first step must be organ
ization, the second conciliation, the next
possibly arbitration, but compulsory arbi
After referring to some details a cordial
greeting was given the English delegates,
and much benefit was predicted from an
nllillution with the wage earners across
the water. Higher dues were recom
mended for the various unions. The ad
dress was frequently applauded. The cre
dentials, and other committees next re
ported, and Secretary Kvans mode his
report. The receipts from sources, includ
ing a balance Nov. 1, 1893, ot 1,177.W,
were stated at $22,41)3.83.
A few words were said by John Burns,
the British delegate. He said: "Tho con
vention that appointed us comprised 403
delegates, of whom 10J were members of
parliament, justice or municipal officers.
This shows what a hold organized labor
has on the people of England. I shall be
pleased to hear ten years hence that you
have progressed as ar as we have today.

reasons, one of which is that the country

competition America has eclipsed her in
