COMMUNICATIONS.
Communication from Senator
Teller was read and ordered placed
on file. It is here appended:
"I am in receipt of yours of recent
date, enclosing a petition from your
branch of the American Federation
of Labor for the free coinage of
silver. I shall take pleasure in pre­
senting the petition in the senate
along with mafly others of the same
character, recently received. It is
very gratifying to me to see that
the labor people are taking up this
cause, as I am satisfied that upon
it depends their future prosperity.
Yours truly,
H. M. TELLER."
Communication from Senator
John L. Mitchell, below reproduced,
was read and ordered placed on file:
"I am in receipt of your letter of
March 28, including a resolution of
the Trades Assembly of Superior,
urging the senate to 'pass a law for
the free and unlimited coinage of
silver.' In reply I wish to state
that the senate passed such a meas­
ure on the 1st of February, as a
substitute for house bill 2904. The
house has, however, refused to con­
cur in the adoption of the substi­
tute. It is now perfectly clear
that such a measure cannot pass
during this congress. The house
is against it by a large majority,
and the president would have a
veto ready in case the house
yielded to the bill in its present
shape. Yours trulv,
J.'L. MITCHELL."
Communication from Collars and
Cuff Makers read and filed.
Circular from the American Fed
erationist, the official organ of the
American Federation of Labor,
which was signed by President
Gompers and Secretary McCraith,
was read and referred to the differ­
ent unions. The circular asked
that agents be appointed in the sev­
eral organizations represented to
work up the circulation. The price
was reduced five cents on lots of
10, and it was urged that all who
possibly could should subscribe
for this meritorious journal.
Proceedings of the Duluth Trades
