Tho first session of tho American Federation of Labor, which began in annum con vention nt tho Jamestown oxposition today, was devoted to speech-making and reading of reports. Whou adjouun ment came tonight President Gompe.ru, Secretary Morrison and Treasurer Lon non had submitted their reports nnd a partial report o f tho credentials commit-, teed had been read. In response to tho addresses of wel come by Governor Swanwin and Expo sition President Tucker, Gompers paid a tribute to Virginia and tho exposi tion, pointing out tlio fact that this was the first oxposition of tho kind built entirely by organized labor. Ho con fined MsTcmarks chiefly to general mat ters. Toward tho end ho camp down to labor problems and said: "I know of no organization that makes so little pretense to patriotism but in which itruc patriotism prevails to such a large extent as in organized labor. Wo want pcaco and lovo peace and arc working for peace, and in our working people being better organized wo will secure peace. "If it is to be peace, if it is to be fun or if it is to bo fight, we will bo there. I don't think there is any man loves pcaco more than I. I bolievo industrial peace is essential to our progress, almost as essential as tho air to the lungs of broathing animals, but the timo is past when tho possessors of wealth and em ployers of labor, who consider them solves masters, can look down upon a laboring man who stoops witli bent shouldors and accepts orders of a mas ter. "Labor today stands orect, looking the whole world in tho face and insist ing upon equal treatment, equal oppor tunity and resenting any attempt at injustico or wrong." At the conclusion of formalities in cident to tho opening of tho convention President Gompers read his annual re port, which in part is as follows: Fellow Trado Unionists: Wo mcot hero on this historic ground, whero three hundred years ago the first perma nent settlement of tho English-spcnking pcoplo was made. It was an event por tentious in its world-wide influence on progress and civilization. It has a mag nificent lesson for tho men of labor. Tho trials and tribulations of tho early col onists and tho difficulties with which they hnd to contend put thoir endurance and forbearanco to tho severest tests. That they established a now order of society maintaining tho largest amount of individual sovereignty consistent with interdependence nnd mutuality, should prove an inspiration to us to strugglo on tonaciously to achieve the high and ennobling nspirations of labor.

Not alono in our conventions, but in tho gatherings of labor generally, "No re ductions in wages" has been made the slogan and watchword. That policy has had its beneficent influence, not only upon labor, but upon all industry. It has been heard and heeded; at no timo has it had greater justification and dem onstration of its effectiveness than dur ing recent months. Not in tho history of all our country has there been what has been termed a shrinkago of values so great as within a few months past. The shrinkago oc? currcd not upon actual, tangible wines, but upon inflated or watered sleeks which in tho financial vernacular are termed "values." In former periods when shrinkage of inflated values trans pired, its general influence upon indus try was almost immediately to affect tho real values of production, which in turn wero forced upon the toilers in the form of reductions of wages, bringing in thoir wake an industrial crisis and panic. It is due to the determined and clean cut policy of labor of our country that our princes of finance, despite their machinations, could not influence em ployers of labor to hazard an attempt at wage reductions. If all labor will unfalteringly adhcro to tho determina tion to resist any and all reductions in wages, we shall not only avoid the mis cry, poverty and calamity of tho past, but wo shall teach financiers, employers and economists in general a new philos ophy of lifo and industry, the magnifi cent and humano influences of which will livo for all time. To achieve success we must moro thoroughly organize, unite and federate our fellow-workers. Wo must establish moro fully faith in ourselves and confi dence in each other, stand shoulder to shoulder amidst stress or strife, make fraternity tho principle of our every; day lives, and impress upon our fellow workers the necessity of helping to bear each other's burdens. In our organized effort wo should en deavor to maintain industrial peace by trade agreements with omploycrs. Theso agreements, written or verbal, should bo faithfully kopt. Wo should uso our best influences nnd judgment to avoid industrial conflicts wherover possible, and under nny and all circumstances to resist to tho uttermost every attempt to rcduco wages. During former periods of industrial crises or trado stagnation, when laljor complacently acquiesced in wago reduc tions, tho political economists of tho day proclaimed, and employers gener ally followed, tho theory that tho law of "supply and demand" governed all (Continued on Page Fivo) DohaKey in 'Cleveland PK''- Dealer.
