GOMPERS. LABOR CHIEF, DECLARES
BRYAN WILL BE NEXT PRESIDENT
Chicago, Sept. 7. Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation
of Labor, stopped in Chicago on his
way to Danville, 111., where he will
made a Labor day address today. In
an interview lie predicted the election
of William Jennings Bryan, raked
"Uncle Joe" Cannon over the coals,
and spoke in blistering terms of Eu
gene V. Debs and his record.
The chieftain of trade unionism in
(he United States declared, without
reservation, that it is his belief Mr.
Bryan will be the next president. Ho
based his predictions upon personal
observations while touring the coun
try and also reports sent in by labor
"In my 44 years In the trades union
movement I never witnessed such a
unanimity of action and judgment
among the workers to place In power
a party favorable to their interests,"
he declared. "I am satisfied Mr. Bryan
will be our next president."
In his address at Danville, Mr. Gom
pers declared, he would pay particular
attention to Speaker Cannon. As Dan
ville' Is Speaker Cannon's home, Mr.
Gompers asserted that he believes ;t
will be timely to express his views to
the speaker's constituents.
"Primarily as a trades unionist and
more broadly as one seeking to do a
public service, I believe it is my duty
to put forth such efforts as are at my
command to retire from public life the
present speaker of the house of rep
resentatives," he said. "During hl3
long career in office he never has done
anything for the people except that
which he was forced to do. His influ
ence in the house has been most per
nicious. He has built up a machine
there, and unless a member bows to it
he is not even given the chance of rep
resenting the dictrict from which he
comes. In other words, he is a mere
cipher. The vulgarity and profanity of
Speaker Cannon alone deserve the
most severe, condemnation."
"What do you think of the article
written by Grover Cleveland in which
he referred to the labor vote as an in
determinate quantity?" he was asked.
No Cleveland Argument.
"I have no argument with Mr. Cleve
land." he replied. "Assuming that the
article Is authentic and I am n6t sure
that it is It was written before either
of the big political parties met In con
vention and adopted their platforms.
Mr. Cleveland did not know when he
wrote that article If he did write it
that the democratic party would meet
at Denver and adopt a platform declar
ing for human liberty and the rights
of man. I do not know what Mr. Cleve
land would have written in the other
two articles which, it is said, he was
planning to have published."
Deba Not Labor I.rader.
Mr. Gompers' attention was called to
the statement issued by Presidential
Candidate Debs of the socialist party
at Denver regarding him.
"Mr. Debs is not connected with the
labor movement." he declared. "He Is
an employer "and his interests are not
connected with trades unionism. I
never - obtained : money enough to be
come an employer, and while I am not
proud of being poor, it is a fact never
theless. Debs lies when he says that
I always opposed political action in the
trades union movement until it was
bound hand and foot by court decis
ions. I was opposed to partisan poli
tics in trades unions, but always favor
ed every union using all power at its
command to achieve its rights. We
have been forced into this fight. Debs
is seeking to engage me in public de
bate. I refuse to argue with a man
who has lost his reason. It is like try
ing to pour medicine down the throat
of a corpse."
