GOMPERS DELIVERS SPEECH
40 DELEGATES HOLD SESSION AT
Labor Leader Makes Vigorous Ad.
Urging That Employes
Form Own Insurance
[By Associated Press.]
WASHINGTON, Oct. 19.—The United
Textile Workers of America met here
loday in annual convention. There
■were present about forty delen
representing 10,000 workers, the entire
body of Mich employes numbering
about 700,000 in Hie United States.
The convention was not called to
order until the arrival of Samuel
Gompers, president of the American
Federation of Labor.
Mr. Gompers spoke with great vigor
upon the necessity of the members of
the organization providing all forms of
Insurance for themselves, instead of
jjaying their money into the (-offers of
the great insurance corporations of
He advocated higher dues for the
textile workers to be of service to
them "In time of stress, and to be
used as a beneficial fund."
Referring to the strike of the tex
tile worker! in Fall River several
years ago, Mr. Gompers declared the
contest had taught the employers in
the textile trades that It was cheaper
to pay the living wages demanded by
the union than it was to bear the ex
pense of a strike.
Life Line Reached
"If employer! In the textile trade
understood." Bald Mr. (Jumpers,
the life line hai been.reached In I
of textile workers, and that the men
and women in thai trade will not work
for less than the living wage, that liv
ing wage will he paid to them. If
people simply allow themselves to be
molded by the oppressive grasp of
their employers there 1b no limit to
■which the workers may not be op
Referring to his as". 59, Mr. liompers
said that vyhlle s"m<- people thought
lie was an old man, he was sad
there were a couple of "good fights"
in him still.
Mr. Gompers declared the recent
financial crisis would have lasted longer
had It not been for the influence of
lnbor organizations in keeping '..
up so that the products of (he mills
rould find purchasers. Had wages
been reduced, he said, the crisis of 1907

VICTORIA, B. C, Oct. 19.—Swept

deck! of the Canadian-Australian lln

.Mis. T. Sampson of Krlsbone, was
drowned before her husband's eyes
during .i gala when the liner was an

Many other! had narrow escapes.
Steward Noble VII swept against the

by him, Fireman Anderson suffered
fraeturei of both legs, and from 18 to
20 passengers and seamen were swept
in a maelstrom of broken deck fittings,
but only one life was lost.
Mrs. Sampson was swept against the
rail with such force that it broke and
she was carried into the sea. Life
buoys were thrown and a boat made
ready for lowering, but it would have
been madness to lower it even had the
unfortunate woman been sighted after
the vessel was hove to, as the warning

Question of Safety of Thursday Isle
from Invasion Discussed by
VICTORIA, B. C, Oct. 19.—The ques

north of Australia, from invasion by
Japanese was under discussion at Mel
bourne in the Australian parliament
shortly before the steamer Marama
sailed, and Senator Poarce, late min
ister fur defense, said:
"At any time the Japanese of Thurs
day island could overwhelm the gar
rison and capture the fortifications.
That's the first thing- which would be
done In the event of an invasion."
The senator was speaking to impress
the government that a mistake had
been made in not making provision for
new guns at Thursday island. He
said there were thirty men in the par
rison, and ten times as many Japanese
residents, many of whom were military
officers, and it would be easy for them
to capture the defenses.
