THE DEMOCRATIC MESSENGER. SNOW HILl!, MARYLAND,
President of Federation Calls
Attention to Big Issues
DECREASE IN MEMBERSHIP
President It Assailed—“ Contemplating
System To Regulate Trade
Unions,” It Is
Cincinnati, O.—Facing a fight tliat
leader* oi organized labor regard as
one lor the existence of unions, the
American Federation here opened its
forty-second annual convention, which
was marked by the presentation of
many issues that are to he considered
during the next two weeks and a
speech by President Samuel Gompers.
declaring "we do not deceive ourselves
into any fancied security." The issues
were brought before the delegates by
the report of the fedrat ion's Executive
“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. Mont Roily as Governor of Porto
Rico. Iglesias declared that Governor
Reily had dealt fairly with organized
labor in Porto Reo,
