PHIMEE 115 IT EI THE HORSE NEW YORK, Nov. 13-Af dison Square Garden was held what is de clared to be a fiieil brilliant assemblage tonight, when Rear-Admiral Prince iouis ot isattenberg lent his presenco as an added distinction to the fotffial opening of the 21st annual horse show" under the auspices of the National .Horse Show association. The garden has been open during the day, and the judging of the various classes had been in progress, but it Temained for the evening to give the show its social impetus and spectacular effects. The prince was loudly cheered as he entered tho building, and the band played "God Save the King." In re-1 sponse to cheers prolonged and enthusi astice, the Prince repeatedly bowed his acknowledgments. AGO WOULD 1 STREET CIS J i clay to celebrate its silver jubilee the city where the ormlulzation was given blrvi .twenty-five years ago. More than 500 delegate's filled the old City hall, when the convention" was called to order at 10 o'clock this morning. They represented all organized crafts and came from all parts of the United States and Canada. President Samuel Gompers delivered his annual address to the delegates, and Secretary Frank Morrison and Treasurer John B. Lcn non presented their annual statements. T.he convention got into working order before an adjournment was taken late this afternoon. Owing to the unusual importance of some of the matters to come up for consideration it will be ten days and possibly longer before the business of the convention . is concluded. President Gompers' address was the feature of the day. It showed that the federation continues to gain in mem bership at a gratifying rate. Presl-i dent Gompers reviewed briefly the history and progress of the organiza tion since its formation in Pittsburg twenty-five years ago, and congratulat ed the convention upon tho outlook for the future. Tho remainder of his address was devoted to numerous re commendations. He referred to the great awakening in Russia, claiming that the results so far attained in the land, of the Czar and others of an equal ly beneficent nature that are to follow j pute to come, before the convention siricuon ot European immigration was contained in tho address. Other mat ters referred to Mr. Gompers were the eight hour day, sweat shops, child labor and Federation injunctions. The work of organizing labor and dis seminating labor propaganda com prised the remainder of Mr. Gompers address. President Gompers occupied more than two hours in delivering his ad- dress. Its salient points were greeted with loud applause, and when he had finished he received an ovation which lasted sovcral minutes. Frank Morrison, secretary of the fed eration, presented his annual report, which showed that the membership is fast approaching the two and a half million mark. The report of Treasurer John B. Lcnnon contained figures show ing the financial affairs of the organ ization to be in a satisfactory condition. The present convention, while regard ed as one of the most important ever held by tho federation, promises at the same time to be one of the most harmo nious. The socialist clement, which came to the fore several years ago, and created a spirit of dissension, has al most entirely disappeared, so far as its influence is concerned, and President Gompers and the other officers are as sured of re-election by nn almost un animous vote.

One of tho mat ters under consideration was a project for placing the Council of Empire, the upper house of the national as sembly, to a certain extent on an elec tive basis, which Witte insisted upon before accepting the premiership, and which was one principal cause of tho long delay in issuing the imperial man on an elective basis.

Tho convention will also discuss the matter of uniform mining laws among the various states and it is certain that committees will be named to call on the governors of the various states and urge them to include in their next message to the legislatures of their re spective commonwealths the advisabil ity of uniformity of such laws among the various states of the union. The congress will probably draft a bill which each state will be asked to adopt. There is a movement coming to the front to make the "fganization strictly a business one. At present delegates are named by governors, chambers of commerce, mayors, etc., but there is a sentiment among the delegates to do away with this and have the delegates to future congresses elected by their respective state associations, thus making them 11 practical mining men, wnicn is not now in every in stance the case.
