A Meeting of the Federa tion of Labor. Outline of the Possible Action of the Association. President Debs Confident of Suc cess, Denies That He Is Coins to Surrender. Bythe Associated Press. Chicago, July 12. The strike situa tion throughout the country was in gen eral one of quietness. The central point of interest has been the meeting of the labor leaders with .President GomperB, of the Federation of Labor, at their headquarters in this city. It is admitted that the action of that body, if taken unanimously, will have a marked effect on the situation, and persons well informed as to the pre dictions of persons composing it ex press an opinion that unanimous ac tion by it, except in the reaction of quieting the present agitation by turn ing it into other channels, is unlikely. It is known that several suggestions are being -considered by these leaders. Among them are the following : First That the striking Pullman em ployes on high patriotic grounds ap peal to President Deba to declare the strike off by reason of the infinite dam age which is being done to the business of the country. Second That the leaders unite in an appeal to the public to quit patronizing Pullman sleepers, drawing rooms and dining cars. Third That President Cleveland be requested to appoint a committee to in vestigate the strike and the causes which led up to it in the expectation that the report of such a commission would jusify the action taken by the strikers and free them from the charges of rioting and disorder. Fourth That immediate efforts be made to secure the impeachment of Attorney General Olney. Fifth That an effort be made to se cure the passage of a compulsory arbi tration law by congress. Sixth That complaints be lodged looking to the indictment of railway managers for a consmracy to obstruct the movement of the United States mails by refusing to run mail cars except in connection with Pullmans.
