LABOR MEN'S
CONVENTION.
Delegates at Bridgeton Split Over
the Election of President
Fraud Claimed.
SOME LEAVETHE HALL.
BRIDGETON, Aug. 19.— The second
day's session of the New Jersey State
Federation of Labor was replete with
excitement yesterday, ami for a t’liie there
was every possibility of the meeting
breaking up in a row.
The Disturbance arose over the election
of president, some of the delegates con
tending that the election had been cal'
ried on unjustly. Their contentions, how
ever, failed to meet with the approval ot
the chairman of the convention, and as a
result the complaiuiug ones, headed t>y
President John A. Moffett, of the l uited
Hatters of America, left the hall in a
body, with the express purpose as they
declared, of holding a convention of their
own elsewhere this afternoon.
When the convention opened this morn
ing Vice-President Guidon R. Levak, of
Millville, was in the chair. There were a
* few minor matters adjusted by the dele
gates and then the chairman announced
that the convention would go into execu
tive sessiou and elect officers- Tellers
were appointed and it was learned that
there were 119 ballots to be cast. When
the call for nomination was mad but two
names were placed before the convention
Cornelius Ford of Hoboken, the past
Dresident. and George Wambold. of
Bridgeton.
The first ballot showing that 122 votes I
had been cast, of.which number Ford was
accredited with having sixty-three and
Wambold fifty-nine. Chairman Levak im
mediately proclaimed Ford |the re elected
president.
At this President Moffett arose and de
clared that the election had been carried
fraudulently, and that another ballot
should be taken. In this bo was sup
ported by several other delegates. The
chairman, however, refused to listen to
the complaint, and declared the election
valid.
Moffett is then said to have rose to bis
feet and in a loud tone declared that those
in the room who were with him in his ob
^^^M^^^efe-should leave the hail, lie pro
eloquentI j that v.m.-tl.ing w...
P^^^wrong with the election, auil lie desired
all the hatters and Ins friends to standby
him. All the Moffett’s organization,
with the exception of Secretary Thomas
J. Mead, of the Essex Trades Council, left
the convention amid the utmost excite
ment.
After Moffett and liis associates had
departed they gathered in a small liall
near the convention chamber, and it was
there that the president of the hatters an
nounced his intention of holding a separ
ate convention late this afteiuoou or to
night.
The more conservative element of the
federation are opposed to Moffett, and the
outbreak of to-day lias been threatened
for some time. Some of the conservative
representatives say that the represent
atives of the American Federation of La
bor were present at the meeting, and
t that things will run along as in times
past.
j Moffett’s al egatlon that there were hut
A 119 ballots polled and 122 counted is met
” with scorn by his opponents. There were

ent, and the tellers declare emphatically
that the ballots were correctly counted.
Just what the outcome of the fight be
tween Moffett and the federation will be
as pure a matter of coujeoture. There ii
some talk among the hatters friends o
his setting up a separate organization t<

but in this he will not reoeive the sane

Iu the hope of avoiding a repetition
of the freight blockade that so seri
ously interfered with traffic on the
Pennsylvania during the past six
months, the compauy intends to grap
ple with the problem early this fall
so as not to permit the tracks to be
come congested. General Manager
Aterbury says plans were under con
sideration for a cut-off for eastern
through freight, but nothing definite
has been decided on. Second Vice
President Pugh, General Manager At
terbury and W. A. Platt, assistant to
the chief engineer, are now making
an inspection ot the West Penn Rail
road.
Labor Day will certainly be a rec
ord breaker in Hudson county if the
plans of the demonstration committee
of the Building Trades Council do
not miscarry and it is not likely they
will. The committee lias made such
arrangements for the event that it
will eclipse anything ever held in
this county. All possible kinds of
amusement have been secured, both
for the child and adult. There will
be a first class professional vaudeville
show, moving pictures, games, prize
bowling and all necessary side shows
to make tho park an exposition on a
small scale. Two bands of music
have been engaged and there will be
dancing all day.
In the parade it is expected that
there will be close to 15,000 men’in
line. Grand Marshal Arrington and
his able assistants have made all ar
rangements, and Hoboken,from which
point tile parade starts, will present a
gala appearance on Labor Day.
Now York is threatened with a
strike of all the trades in shipuilding
yards in support of the marine mach
inists, who nave been on strike for
several mouths to enforce the demand
for a minimum wage rate of $3 a day.
This strike, unless it can be averted,
is likely to take place within a week
and will involve the boilermakers,
blacksmiths, helpers, pattern makers,
coppersmiths, painters and other
trades, and could tie up all the ship
building yards in New York and
vicinity, including the Townseud
Downey yards on Shooter’s Island,
which wero the nucleus of the big
strikes of shipbuilders a year ago.
11 is said that tho strike would call
out 15,000 or 20,000 meu in vards
around Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn,
Staten Island, Elizabethport, Jersey
City and Hoboken. It is declared
that every effort will he made to
avert this strike, but if the unions
carry out the program it is believed
that the striko will be inevitable.
