BIG UNION FOR MARINE WORKERS Member of the English House of Commons Presides at Opening Session By United Press Leased Special Wir*. NEW YORK, Nov. 29.—Delegates representing over 500,000 sailors In every American and Canadian port on the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf and Great Lake coats met here today In conven tlon, the object of which Is to weld the marine worker^* of the world Into a single gigantic union. J. Havelock WI1 son, leader of the British Seamen and member of the English Parliament pro sided at the opening session. The movement for an International sailors organization originated In Eng land, where, according to Wilson, the seamen have suffered a great deal at the hands of ship owners. Wilson says that the activity of the British shippers and the measures taken by the American employers on the Great Lakes are part of a world wide movement against seamen's union. It ts for the purpose of combatting this movement that the sailors are to organize. With the perfecting of the Inter national union the seamen contemplate the formulation of a series of demands which will be presented to the employ ers. They are confident that with 600.000 men in America and all of the union bailors ready to strike If the de mands are not acceeded to the em ployers will capitulate. Among the demands will be; Uniform wage scales for long and short voyages. The number of engine room and boil er room employes carried on each ship to be regulatêd according to the coal tonnage of the ship. The selection of every crew to be under the supervision of representative of the sailors union, to safeguard the interests of the sailors. LABOR LEADERS TALK WITH TAFT Offer Suggestions as to Le gislation by the Coming Congress PRESIDENT WILL ACTON SOME OF THEIR REQUESTS By United Press Leased Special Wir*.

John Mitchell, Frank Morrison, and James O'Connell, officers of the Federation, spent an hour and a half In conference with President Taft today. A law to prohibit the Injunction, es pecially where Individual liberty Is In volved as against property rights, was urged by the labor leaders. They also rtHiuesled that the eight hour law be amended so as to apply to sub-contrac tors as well as to contractors on gov ernment work. And amendment of the Hhennan anti trust law to prevent Us application to labor unions was discussed at great length. The labor leaders called th* President's attention to the Loewe, or Hatters case, now pending In the Cir cuit Court of Connecticut and told him that they thought It an Injustice for suits of this character to be brought against trade unions. The British trades dispute act of 1906 was submitted tn the Pres'dent as a model for legislation In this coun try. "Surely Congress should give us what the crown fis willing to give workingmen In England," said Oom pora to the President. The labor leaders asked the Presi dent further to recommend an appro priation by Congress to pay Inspectors so as to secure a more thorough en forcement of the child labor law In the District of Columbia. They asked also an amendment to the Employers' liability act which would eliminate the fellow servant and contributory negligence features of the present law. The President told the labor leaders that he would consider the recommen dations carefully, and certainly recom mend legislation along the lines of some of them In his forthcoming mes sage to congress. He did not specify, however, the particular recommenda tions that appealed to him. 1R0SE STOKES - - TO LEAD STRIKE Millionaire Socialist Doing D Jcl/ a 4 IW., 41.« C «« Picket Duty for the Gar ment Makers By United Press I.eased Special Wire.
