FBIDAY, JUXE 2 gfTRADES(jfe.) COUNCIL The shot aimed by the -Ohio Re publican convention at the trusts seemed to Hash in the pan. Some eloquent pleas for harmony were made at the Columbus "peace conference" yesterday by leaders of the -warring Republican factions, but it will be observed that not one of the belligerents had enough confi dence in the sincerily of his fellows to. take the initiative in disarming.

Will Give Grand Barberton Banquet Inn. at The Ohio Valley League of Bi Metallic clubs which closed a three days' session at Louisville Thursday, recommended the re-adoption of the Chicago platform by the Democratic party and the re-nomination of Mr. W. J. Bryan for president. This year's session of the League was the most enthusiastic one of its history. If Mr. Hanna has no more of a hand in dictating the nomination of today's convention than he had in controlling its organization, he will not have very much to brag about. Boss Cox of Cincinnati managed to have his delegation admitted to the convention, against the protests of 15,000 Hamilton county Republicans, but the door was closed without cere mony upon ex-Mayor McKisson and his friends. The Columbus convention to-day "congratulated the Republican party on the fact that a Republican Con gress and a Republican Legislature were the authors of laws forbidding the organization" of business combi nations known as trusts and coin bines," but not a word of praise did it have for the sturdy efforts of At torney General Monnett to enforce the parry's anti-trust laws. Mr. Monnett should understand that while Republican anti-trust laws are good things to shout about during campaigns, they are never made to be enforced. A spark of the warlike spirit that was his characteristic of old, and which gave him the quality of a suc cessful leader, was detected in the speech of Senator Foraker to the McKisson delegation from Cuyahoga county at Columbus yesterday. ''The day has dawned," said he, "when the representatives of the Republi can voters in the state must be heard in their state conventions. They must have a vote in the affairs of the party. Tou are the true representa tives of the the Republican party in Cuyahoga-county, and have always under all circumstances been found loyal to the party, and I say now that you ought to have, and I believe you will have, seats in this conven tion." But when the time came to apportion the badges to the contesting delegations, the McKisson men were not recognized, and it remains to be seen what Foraker and his -friends intend to do about it. The Labor convention at Columbus yesterday was attended by 126 dele- gates from various labor organiza tions throughout the state. The fol lowing excellent platform of princi ples was recommended to Ohio's political parties for adoption: "Equal rights for all, special privileges for none; the adoption of initiative and referendum; a more rigid examina tion of workshops, mines and homes; liability of employers for injury to health, body or life; equal pay for equal work for male and female; abolition of the sweating system; municipal ownership of all public " utilities; national ownership of tele graphs, telephones, railroads and all public highways; abolition of con vict labor; abolition of government by injunction." A proposition to place an independent ticket in the field was voted down. As the best of the principles advocated by the Labor convention will appear in the platform of the Ohio Democracy this year, there will be no necessity for an independent ticket. BIRTHS.
