ADMITS THAT HE
HAS THREE WIVES
QM LOBBY PROBE
Says Aim of American Federa
tion of Labor is to Help the
Working Man Obtain Better
IaM Coir, Formerly of Laporte,
Married Fourth Wife Hut
She Is Now Dead.
WASHINGTON", Sept. 11. Pamuel
Oomiifrs. president of tho American
3'edern.tien T Iabor. appeared lat
"Wednesday as vltn'5s before the
house lobby investigating committee,
heinniriK an inquiry Into organized
lai'or efforts to influence legislation
.Mr. cjornper. questioned by his at
torney, Jackson H. Ralston, f-ra.ve the
committee a detailed statement of th
aims and purposes of the American
I'ederation of Labor, frankly told of
Its efforts through a legislative com
mittee to lntluence congress toward
tho enactment of legislation favor
able to the workers and declared that
In this effort opposition of tho Na
tional Association of Manufacturers
always had been encountered.
"The only evidence that I and rny
colleagues ewr have had as to the e-x-lstenco
of the National Association of
Ianufacturcrs," ho added, "was vin
dictive antagonism to everything we
advocated, no matter how humane."
At the outset of his testimony Mr.
Gompers was asked to state the aims
cf tho American Federation of Labor.
Tell of A. F. of Ij. Alms. '
"It alms," he said, "to relieve the
working people from burdensome long
Jioura of toil; to protect them in
their work, protect their lives and
health; to improve their material,
moral, social and political standing;
to bring about a better condition for
tho toilers of our country as a reward
for services they render to society."
Tracing the history of legislation
for the benefit of labor, Mr. (Inmpcrs
claimed credit on behalf of the fed
eration for the work of legislative
committees In Washington and in
many states of the union, asserting
that all labor legislation was con
Ftantly being urged upon legislative
lodios through argument by the rep
resentatives of the working people.
The. witness said the American
Manufacturers' association had not al
ways been an anti-union or anti-labor
"As a matter of fact." he said, "tho
National Association of Manufacturers
was not an anti-labor organization
until D. M. Parry's declaration in 1903
to the? convention of that association
at New Orleans. Mr. Parry as presi
dent had his report printed. It was a
virulent attack on all organized labor.
That report he never read to the con
vention at New Orleans. From that
time the .association became anti
labor and anti-union."
Hep. Willis asked Mr. (tempers
tv hat relation the American Federa
tion of Labor bore to the Knights of
"The relation," Mr. Hampers re
plied, "between a living human organ
izism and a corpse."
Mr. (lompers was called to the
Ftand at the conclusion of the exam
ination of James A. Fmcry. counsel
lor the Council for Industrial Defense
of the National Association of Manu
facturers, who, said, when asked what
3i? thought of the Workmen's Pro
tective association, organized by Mar
tin M. Mulhall:
"I think it was a political Falstaf
fian army, whose members increased
according to the imagination of the
commander in chief."
