The issues were brought before the delegates by the report of the fedrat ion's Executive Council. “We are not in a mood," said Mr. Gotnpers, ’to have those rights and privileges guaranteed to us by our Constitution taken from us by any subtle reasoning or assumption of power, no matter whence it emanates.” This declaration of the veteran labor leader was greeted with applause, as was also his statement that organized labor would “go onward and forward, more determined than ever that there shall not be imposed upon our brow, upon our backs, the type of the ‘man w.th the hoe.“* The speech by Mr. Gompers came after a program of welcoming ad dresses by Mayor George P Carrel. Secretary T J Donelly. of the Ohio Federation of Labor and others. The big armory of the Ohio National Guard, which is the seat for the con vention. was filled by delegates and spectators, while above their heads were hung a thousand American flags | forming the hall decorations. ! In his brief speech Mr. Gompers de clared that organized labor only asked employers to meet with the union lead ers in conference for the settlement of any disputes but he said that a gen uine conference was impossible unless both sides stand on an equal footing Tlie "open shop." he added, is not the result of conferences. Mr. Gompers concluded with a refer ence to the Disarmament Conference, asserting that it made a beginning to ward abolishing war. and that labor throughout the world made the "great est contribution toward that purpose.” The convention session also was marked by presentation of a report by Santiago Iglesias president of the Free Federation of Workers of Porto Rico. indorsing t ie Administration of E.

HUSBAND DENIED ALIMONY. Washington Supreme Court Rule* It Illegal. Olympia. Waah.—Legally, alimony fo- a husband is an unheard-of thing, according to the Washington Supreme Court. The wife cannot be held liable for “temporary suit money,” “temporary attorney’* fees” and “temporary main tenance," as husbands can when con ditions are reversed, said the court The Supreme Court even went to the length of declaring that under com mon law no husband has a right to alimony. The court upset and set aside the decision of Superior Judge Joseph B. Llnd-Ooy. of Spokane county, which made Mrs Agnes Jacobson liable for temporary suit money, temporary at torney’s fees and temporary mainte nance for her husband.
