Federation, "Kill jet form a handsome
nucleus for the fund to erect the piopobtd
monument.
Tiioimn the (" ngressioiial work of the
present legislative committee ife practicallj
ended, the committee still is engaged in
securing al liable dala for the preparation
of important labor measures to 1m? prcnenU d
in Congress verj earlv after the hoiidajs.
It is confidently predicted by the committee
and itiedelegatesthattliebillsrecomtncn tied
bj l!ie Federation, and now pending before
Congress, will be fatvablj acted on dur
ing the present session. While the Federa
tion bill substituting daj labor for contract
work ui. all Ilirul government buildings
did not meet with general approval, still
the Federation believes that it was through
the agitation of the question by the Federa
tion that the present bill giving the Com
missioners discretionnrj power In giv
ing out work, islikelv to become a law.
'1 he Federation has als( imu li confidence
in the federation bill prohibiting the ap
pointment of aliens to gov eminent positions,
or their employment on nnj- contract or sub
contract work on an j- buildings of tins
government.
Another incisure now pending before Con
gress, which was introduced at the request
of the Federation, '"The Employers' Lia

Not much has lnsen said up to this time

' change in the personnel of the present of

1 is if the present presiding officer, Mr.
James F McIIugh, will only consent to
I become a candidate, there will be no
doubt of his election. Such was the opin
ion or ev erv delegate seen at the meeting
on Tuesday night.
I he oies business before the contiact
committee was the work on the Con
