In the October issue of the American Federationist,
the organ of the American Fed
eration of Labor, President Gompers reviews
his campaign against Representative
Littlefield in the second district of Maine
and gives to organized labor credit for the
redaction of Mr. Littlefield's majority from
5.419 In lflM to about 1,000 In 1906. He
says that "labor did not undertake to defeat
Mr. Littlefield because he was a re
jiuuiiuiu nor Decause Ms conspicuous opponent
was a democrat. It made a clean
fight against Mr. Llttlefield because of his
bitter, relentless antagonism to the beat
Interests of the wage earners, as well as
the common people of our country." He
charges "the Interests" with a direct effort
in Mr. l^lttlefleld's behalf, and declares
that "the commercial, railroad and shipping
trusts poured immense sums of money
into the campaign and the methods used to
'get' the nomination were amply employed
to Becure Mr. Liittlefield's election at any
He also charges the Maine reoresentative
with unworthy methods in conducting
his campaign. Considerable attention Is
given to the part taken in the campaign
by Speaker Cannon, Secretary Taft and
other republicans from the outside who
went to Mr. T.ittlefield's assistance. Of the
Speaker's efforts Mr. Gompers says: "He
totally misrepresented the aims nnH rmi
poses of labor in Ills speech," and he
charges the Speaker with "so constituting:
the committees of the House that the
wrongs of labor might be continued and
tho lights of the people denied," and he
adds that Mr. Littlefield was one of his
capable lieutenants in carrying out that
policy. Of Mr. Taft, Mr. Gomi>ers says:
"As for the affinity of Secretary of War
Taft with Mr. Littlefleld and solicitude
for his re-election, I need tout refer to the
fart that when Mr. Taft was Judge of the
ieuerai court ne issued one of the earliest
injunctions against which labor so justly
complains. Mr. Littlefleld as a member of
the judiciary committee in Congress always
used his position to prevent any remedy
of the injunction evil and abuse. Whatever
other merit Secretary Taft's speech
may have had, his misrepresentation of
labor's position on the question of injunction
could only have been willful. It was
an attempt as a member of the cabinet to
justify the further invasion of constitutional
rlchts of which he mas irtilitv a* a
Reference Is also made to the parts played
| by Senators Lodge and Beverldge and
others who also represented the President's
supposed interest in Mr. Llttlefield's behalf.
Mr. (jumpers concludes:
"Tlio campaign in Maine has shown how
great are the forces aligned against the
interests of the people, and it has also
shown that labor needs only to lead the
way and all good citizens aid in the noble
and patriotic work."
The same issue of the magazine contains

According to Charles J. Hammond,
a New York leader who was recent
ly in wasnington. the American Federation
of Labor will not be the only
organization of workingmen to take
part In the approaching elections. He
said a national labor party was being
formed which had already Indorsed
President Roosevelt. Mr. Hammond said
the locomotive engineers and firemen were
strong friends of the President and handed
a Star reporter the following printed
statement as Indicative of the drift he had
"Emanating from the session of the general
assembly of the Knights of Labor, Incorporated,
recently held In New York, is a
call for a representative meeting of all
labor organizations and their members to
adopt a name and platform for a national
labor party. The object thereof is stated
to be to secure such legislation as will be
of benefit to the masses of the people and
to 'prosecute all unlawful combinations and
the officials of insurance companies, trust
companies and all others who extort, embezzle.

"President Roosevelt and Senators Tillman
and La Follette came in for indorsement,
which was also extended to those
senators and representatives who have
worked for the passage of rate and pure
food bills.
iniinn.n was praisea tor tils advocacy" of
reforms in conducting elections, especially
for his opposition to the unlawful use of
money in election campaigns. La Follette
was indorsed because of his efforts in preventing
valuable lands and leases in Oklahoma,
Indian Territory and elsewhere from
nncsintr into tho ?n *- '
other corporations without just compensation."
The formation of a new and powerful
labor organization may be the outcome of
the thirtieth biennial convention of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, now
In session in Milwaukee.
It Is understood that a proposition will be
made to unite the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Firemen with the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen. Color Is given to this
rumor by the fact that W. T. Lee. assistant
grand master of the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen, is at present in Milwaukee,
md has twice appeared before the convention.
The union of the two organizations would
moan a most powerful labor combination.
Both are reckoned among the strongest
unions in the country, both financially and
in point of membership. The firemen have
a membership of upward of 00,000, while
ir:c uroiuernooa musters anout 1)0,000 men.
The treasuries of the two companies would
add up to nearly $2,000,000.
A matter of some importance to workingmen
in Washington, as well as elsewluere,
is the announcement recently made
in New York that "the George A. Fuller
Company, which was under charges for
disobeying an order of the Allied Iron Association
by re-employing union house
DIU'IUD ??. mc J KIWI nwici, aziu wnn
charges were referred to the board of governors
of the Building Trades' Employers'
Association, has made its peace with the
latter. The firm will not be disciplined
and is now working in harmony with the
other employers.
"The firm has agreed to cmnlnv th?
housesmlths on all future contracts, Including
some which It is about to start,
on the open shop basis, and has made all
thehousesmiths at work on the Plaza Hotel
get certificates from the employment bureau
of the Allied Iron Associations, which
means that they are employed individually
and not as members of the union. Vice
President Clough of the George A. Fuller
Company said last evening:
Building Trades Employers' Association.
In fact we were always in accord with it
in spite of some misunderstandings. We
are employing the housesmiths on the
open shop plan and did not Intend to do
anything else.' "
Announcement is made that Mr. John B.
Simering has rec&ntly become affiliated

Association of Machinists. Mr. Sintering
was the organizer of the Navy Yard and
Arsenal Employes' Protective Association,
an incorporated body under the laws of
the District of Columbia.
This association is composed of all
classes of mechanics and laborers, many
of whom, it is said, would never have con
tributed their money or influence to advance
the cause of the workingrmen liad
they not become members of the organization.
A great many of them are not eligible
to membership in the unions affiliated
with the A. F. of L. and the Central Labor
It is also said that the association of
navy yard and arsenal employes has always

"The rule recently adopted by the Burlington
railroad reducing engineers who are
compelled to wear eyeglasses." says Luke
Grant in the Chicago Record-Herald, "has
started an interesting discussion In railroad
circles. While the matter has not appealed
tu inc jjltuju. quue an strongly hs aia tne
rule promulgated by a number of the railroads
a few years ago that a man over
thirty-five years of age could not procure
employment, still many of the men affected
feel the situation keenly.
"In speaking: on the subject the other
night a locomotive engineer, who himself
wears eyeglasses, said he did not believe
the arguments used against the practice by
officials of the Burlington road were good.
He said that under any circumstances an
engineer had to observe signals through
some kind of glasfl, as no man running an
engine at a high rate of speed would dare
to put his head out of the cab without
having some eort of protection over his
eyes. He said he would be blinded by the
air if not by the smoke and dust.
"Dr. Nelson Miles Black of Milwaukee
who has made a life study of the subject
of ocular diseases, has written an interesting
treatise on the 'question of whether
locomotive engineers who wear glasses are
safe employes or not. Dr. Black rode more
than G.iX*> miles in engine cabs in all kinds
of weather, studying the effects of varying
atmospheric conditions on the vision of engineers.
"Not only does Dr. Black hold that engineers
who wear lenses to bring their
vision up to normal are safe employes, but,
he says, they are safer than those who do
not, for the reason that the protection afforded
the eyes by glasses is a distinct advantage.
"An interesting point in the discussion Is
that all agree that lenses used to strengthen
the vision in daylight are less effective In
the dark. A man who wears glasses can
see better at night without them. Dr. Black
gives his own reasons for this phenomenon
and quotes a large number of authorities
who agree with him. His explanation removes
the objection which the railroads use
against the use of glasses at night. Dr.
Black says that as everything In the universe
is seen by reflected light, except selfluminous
objects, my idea of the diminution
of vision observed by wearers of
glasses after dark is that the lenses reflect
so much of the small amount of light
coming from these various objects after
nightfall as to make a decidedly noticeable
diminution in the vision.
"He quotes a number of authorities to
show, however, that self-luminous objects,
sTich as street lamps or railroad signals,
stand out more sharply defined by the aid

of vision after dark cannot be considered an '
objectionable factor agains\ glasses.
"Of late years It is well known that there '
has been constant tendency to increase the I
speed of important trains and to cut out
stops, so that today we have, on the Burlington
system, a considerable number of <
trains which are commonly run at rates of i
speed as high as fifty, sixty and more miles i
per hour, and through many of the sta- ]
tlons without stopping or without any con- i
siderable reduction of speed. I
A tram running' sixty miles an hour 1
passes over more than eighty feet of die- l
tance in one second; at seventy miles per t
hour over more than 100 feet per second, i
and should it happen, as it doubtless might, i
that an engineer in charge of such a train e
running at such a speed was required to re- t
move his spectacles to wipe the steam or t
mist from them, or should they become
broken, or fall off. and he be required to s
take time to get another pair to put on. for i
each second of time he was so occupied a

During tlie past week Chicago has seen a
struggle for supremacy between the rival

The leaders of the secession movement declare
that they want honest administration
of affairs, and that President Shea must go
"down and out." If they keep on pursuing
the same tactics they have in the past few
