GOMPERS IS NON-COMMITTAL
A. F. of L. Convention Takes Action
to Safeguard Workers-Question

Montreal. Canada.-The delegates
to the convention of the American
Federation of Labor. in session here,
are keenly disappointed at the failure
of the Republican convention in Chi
cago to incorporate in its platform de
mands prepared and presented by or
ganized labor's representatives.
When asked what would be the re
sult of the rejection of labor's demand
by the Republican party, Mr. Gompers
"You may draw yuor own in
The plank, Mr. Gompehrs asserted,
is directly contrary to what labor had
demanded of the -Republican party.
"We had asked the convention to go
on record in favor of the repeal of the
compulsory arbitration sections of the
transportation act." he added, "but the
Republicans appear to have not only
refused our suggestion but would ex
tend it to all utilities."
Mr. Gompers arrived here from Chi
cago, where he had presented labor's
demands to the national Republican
The platform adopted by the Re
publican convention was termed "an
outrage and an affront to the working
people" in a statement by Matthew
Woll, vice-president of the federation.
He declared it is "a document with
which Wall street and the steel trust
ought to be highly pleased."
Mr. Woll said the platform gives
"what I take to be a pledge that the
United States will police Mexico for
the benefit of organized oil, mineral
and mining appetites,"
A resolution adopted by the conven.
tion provided that "every effort be
made by the organized labor move
ment to the end that schools, hospitals,
asylums and othef similar public or
private institutions, factories, as well,
as other forms of buildings requiring
proper care against the dangers of
fire, shall be provided with approved
appliances for the prevention of fire."
Organiazd labor was also urged to aid
in enforcing legislation tending "to
arfeguard life, limb and property."
Despite the fact that the conven.
tion is being held on British. soil,
Matthew Woll, vice-president of the
federation, declared that the Irish res
olution will be taken up for discussion
and adopted by the delegates.
James Simpson of Toronto, vice
president of the Canadian Trades and
Labor Congress, said that if the fed
eration wants to discuss Ireland it is
Several of the Canadian delegates
announced that they would not par

question, but would leave the matter

MATERIAL CUT IN
CLAIM IS MADE THAT BUDGET
FOR FISCAL YEAR ABOUT
HOUSTON MAKES STATEMENT
Great Expansion Compse rcial Credits
During Year. But Big Liquidation
of U. S. War Secur;ties
W\ashington.-Secretary Houston, in
writing to the bankers of the country,
declared that the completed opera
tions of the treasury for tiae fiscal
year ending with this month. "should
show little, If any, deficit, the govern
ment having about balanced its budget
--current receipts against current dis
bursements-for the first full fiscal
year after the fighting stopped."
'"Though the first quarter of the
present fiscal year showed a deficit
of about $770,000,000," Mr Houston
said, "In the second quarter there was
a surplus of over $150,000,000, in the
third quarter there was a surplus of
nearly $400,000,000, and the fourth
quarter should also show a surplus.
"The total gross debt of the United
States, which on June 30, 1919,
amounted to nearly $25,500,000,000,
and on August 31, 1919, amounted to
nearly $26,600,000,000, had been re
duced on May 31, 1920, to less than
$25,000,i00,000. The floating debt out

15. Most of this will be paid out of
over $3,260,000,000, and on August 31,
1919, to nearly $4,000,000,000 had been
reduced on May 31 1920, to less than
"The reduced ordinary and public
debt diabursements have made possi
ble a very important reduction in
the amount of the net balance in the
general fund, which has been applied
to the reduction of the debt"
The secretary declared that both
gross debt and floating debt would
oe further greatly reduced by the re
tirement of nearly $1,000,000,000 in
trelsury certificates due about July
which on June 30, 1919,. amounted to
taxes falling due this month, but to
meet the balance and to provide for
current requirements of the govern
ment up to July 15 the treasury has
decided to offer about $400,000,000 in
new certifications, in two series, one
bearing interest at six per cent and
maturing June 15, 1921, and the other
bearing 5% per cent Interest and ma
turing Jan. 3, 1921. Both series will
oe dated June 15.
Discussing the outlook for the com
ing fiscal year, the secretary said
there would be a further reduction
of both the gross and floating debts
in the first two quarters, and that
unless additional burdens should be
imposed by future legis:ation there
would be a very important reduction
in the last two quarters.
"The period of upwards of 12
months since the floation of the Vic
tory loan," Mr. Houston continued,
"has witnessed 'great expansion of
commercial credits, but steady liqui
dation of United States government
war securities. .The federal reserve
banks' combined loans and discounts
secured by government war securi
ties have been reduced by more than
$400,000,000, though they have in
creased their lyans and investments
by about $1,200.000,000."

London.-Possibility of the abandon
ment of the Spa conference between
representatives of the allied govern
ments and Germany is being discussed
in European capitals.
The success of the Independent So
cialists and the Conservatives in the
German elections leads to the belief
in France that Germany is less than
ever inclined to carry out the treaty.
This belief, with the prospect that
SGioyanni Giolitti, former Italian pre
mier, will form a new ministry in that
country, is said to have moved Pre
mier Millerand of France to oppose
any further yielding on the question
of the German indemnity, such as
might be expected to result from the
Spa meeting. It is recalled that
Signor Giolitti opposed Italty's en
trance into the war and it is said his
foreign policy includes resumption of
full relations with Germany.
Premier Millerand is said to feel he
might hasard his position if the Spa
conference were held, and belief is
expressed here that Signor Glolitti
may decline to attend the meeting.
