Samuel Gompers who is to speak at Cly ffeside July 7th at 2:30 p. m. slow tune has a record of interest worthy of consideration, lie has been in the labor movement from early boyhood. In his eleventh year he was put to work in a factory in London, England. At thirteen he came to America and entered the cigar makers trade, his mem bership due card in the Interna' tional union being the first one issued lie has risen to his present leading position—head of the American Federation of Labor, from secretary’ of a local union, serving in import ant positions along the line to his promotion. In 1880 Governor Hill tendered Mr. Gompers the position of com missioner of arbitration at a salary of three thousand dollars a year, which Mr. Gompers declined, though he at that time was earning less than twenty dollars a week at his trade. I he following year he was nomi nated by both Republican ami l>etno cratio parties for the state senate and although his election was thus as sured, he declined, believing that he could be of more service to lalmr by devoting his undivided efforts to the labor movement. The following year a nomination to congress was tendered him which he also declined; as also the subsequent tender by President MeKinley of mem)>crship upon the industrial commission. He is at present editor of the American Federationist, the official monthly magazine of the Federation of Labor. He was born in J^ondon England, January 27, 1850. His subject atClyffeside will be “Labor’s Rough but Noble Struggle.

He and a companion Phil Hooser, had gotten off a freight train and were walking down the railroad traok when a shot was fired striking Higgs in the right arm between the elbow and shoulder. The bone was shiver ed and two large pieces were removed. The bullet was a 38 caliber. It is not known who did the shooting. Moikk.

Messer, accompanied l»y his father ami uncle, sought out Marcum, who Messer alleges made some rather un complimentary remarks about him. In answer to a ipicsiiun from Mes ser, Marcum admitted that he bad upon an occasion said that Messet bad killad a dog belonging to a. neighbor. Messer thereupon drew a weapon and tired at M ireum. Four shots weVe tiled and Mareum tell to tho giound, expiring in a short time. “For tiod's sake do not lot him kill me," cried Marcum as the first shot was tired, addressing himself to the father and uncle of Messer.
