Ooaleran.ee With Secretary Oortal you?Business Considered. The members of the executive oommltteo of the American Federation of Labor call ed at the Capitol this afternoon at 2 o'clock and had an extended conference with mem bers of the House committee on labor. In cluding Chairman Gardner. The commit tee was headed by President Samuel Gompers. It was started that the confer ence was mainly in regard to the several eight-hour law bills which have been intro duced in the House this session and which have been contemplated by the labor lead ers. The subject of immigration was also talked of. Arrangements were made for a confer ence of the labor officials with Secretary Cortelyou this afternoon. The hour agreed upon was 2 o'clock, but at 2:30 President Gompers' party had not Arrived. The Opening Session. The quarterly session of the executive council of the federation began early yes terday morning. As far as can be learned the Miller controversy has not been thus far discussed by the council. It Is expect ed, however, that the cas~e will be again taken up. The last. convention of the fed eration, in Boston, Mass., instructed the council to take steps to have President Roosevelt reopen the ctise. Should the President grant the request, the executive council of the federation will submit to him all evidence and documents bearing on the case, which are held by Local Union No. 4 of the Brotherhood of Bookbinders. The convention further re quested the President that, upon the veri fication of the charges. Foreman W. A. Miller be dismiesid from the government service. President Robert D. Barrett of the Book binders' Union, No. 4. was at Typographical Temple yesterday, and It is understood he conferred with several members of the council, but the nature of the conferences could not be learned. It is the prevailing opinion that Mr. Barrett will accompany the executive council to the White House, In the event the body decides to make a verbal request of the President that the Miller case be reopened. The representatives of the various or ganizations affiliated with the federation appeared before the council yesterday to arrange conferences. A number of hear ings were given Immediately and others were set for later In the session. New York Controversy. The controversy between the building trades and the employers of New York city was again brought to the attention of the council. President Gompers and Vice Presi dent James Duncan were Instruoted to proceed to New Tork, at the conclusion of 'the quarterly session, with a view to bring ing about a settlement. President Gompers and Vice Presidents Duncan and O'Connell and Secretary Mor rison. all of whom reside In this city, were appointed a committee to ascertain the cost of a lot suitable tor the erection of an office building for the federation. The erection of an office building for the ex clusive use of the federation has been con templated for some time by the officials. The committee will carry out the instruc tions of the council and submit a report at the next meeting. r President Reynolds and a member of th?i executive board of the Illinois Coal Miners' Union urged the council to withdraw lha charter Issued to the Coal Hoisting Engi neers and that the engineers become a pa:t of the United Mine Workers of America, but the executive council deferred decision until the representatives of the engineers could bo heard. Must Adjust Differences. The officers 6f the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and the National Union of Shipwrights and Joiners and Caulkers were ordered to confer and ad just differences, and the same Course was pursued as to the controversy between the International Union of Hod Carriers and Building Laborers and the American Broth erhood of Cement Workers. It was decided to have a committee attend the convention of the Bricklayers' and Ma sons' International Union for the purpose of urging the union to affiliate with the federation. President Gompers was directed to com municate with the Pawtucket Central La bor Union, and ask for specific cases in which local unions have not been repre sented in that body, and that in the event of any case being specific the union in question bo required to conform to the con stitution of the American Federation of Labor and send its full quota of delegates. Test of Anti-Boycott Law. The council decided to help the Alabama state federation of labor test the constitu tionality of the so-called anti-boycott law recently enacted by Alabama. It was decided to request the Brotherhood of Boilermakers and Iron Shipbuilders, the International Association of Allied Metal Mechanics, the Wood, Wire and Metal Lathers' International Union, the Amalga mated Sheet Metal Workers' International Alliance, the Metal Polishers, Buffers, Platers and Brass Workers' International Union, the Bridge and Structural Iron Workers' International Union, to hold a conference In January for the purpose of adjusting their differences regarding juris diction. If the conference cannot adjust the matter the executive council will define the lines of demarkatlon. SONS OF JONADAB. Council to Be Organized in Northeast Washington?Watch-Night Services.

Plan to Partially Carry okt Wishes of First President. The George Washington Memorial As sociation held its regular annual meeting yesterday afternoon at Rauscher's. The principal business transacted was the election of the national officers and the completion of preliminary arrangements for erecting a Washington memorial ad ministration building In connection with a university In this city, partially in ac cordance with a request made by the first President In his will. It Is understood the present plans contemplate the erec tion of the administration building of the proposed greater Columbian University, although this has not been officially con firmed. The report of the nominating commit tee was adopted without amendment. This resulted In the election of all the old officers. They are as follows: Presi dent, Mrs. Archibald Hopkins; corra Oraphophones ?e Xmas Gifts. What better time than Christmas time to introduce a Graphophone into the home?

The meeting was called to order at 2 o'clock, there being thirty-seven mem bers present. These represented the states of New York, Colorado, Virginia, West Virginia, Massachusetts and Rhode Island and the District of Columbia. Adjourn ment was taken at 4:80 o'clock. It is probable that a special meeting will be called by the officers within a few months to consider the question of the erection of the administration building of the new Columbian University as a memorial to George Washington. No more can be done until the directors of the university are heard from. The Qeorge Washington Memorial As sociation was organized in 1897. It is national in scope and its oitly objects are to carry out the will of the father of his country by promoting the national uni versity Idea and to secure a permanent monument to him as a part of tbe reality of his own dreams. President Washing ton always expressed the hope that this olty would become national in every re spect and the first in the land. Of course,' he did not express a desire to have a memorial of himself here, but it is thought by. the association that nothing could be more fitting than to combine the two objects.
