Gompers, of the Federation,
Strongly Opposes the

President's Annual Report
the Main Feature of the
Day's Session.
Denounced as a Plot to Kill
Labor Organzations—
Burns Talks.
Denver, Col., Dec. 10.-Tlie four
teenth annual convuution of the Amer
ican Federation ot Labor whs called to
order by President Uompera promptly at
10 o'clock today. There wore 100 dele
cati's aiul spectators in Odd Fellows'
hall at that time, and half that many
more oau.e in 'during the morning
session. President Kliodey Kenehan. of
the Dc-nvt'i" Trades assembly, delivered
tl%. • address ol \\tlcoin\ to which Mr.
Uompers brietly responded. The latter
spoke feelingly of the almost desperate
condition of lauor at the present time.
This was followed by complimentary
words tor Denver and her energetic
peoule. Referring to the innovation of
hoMins: this convention so tar West as
Deuver, Ire su .riresteil that within a
decade the Westward movement of in
dustry might take the conventions of
the federation to Lite Uolden Gate.
As Mr. Uotiipers closed his remarks,
John Burns, the great English lal-or
leader, entered the hall.and was greeted
with a storm of applause. He took his
seat at the left of the president, the
chsiron the right being occupied by
David Holmes. M. P., of London.
President Gompers named James
Duncan, R. 11. Metealf, Thomas J.
Elderkin, Herbert A. Mullen and
F. Traity as a committee on creden
tials. Thomas M. Patterson, ot Den
ver, was introduced and delivered an
address on "Labor's Rough but Noble
Struggle." A vote of thanks was given
Mr. Patterson at the conclusion of His
iddresf. alter which the convention ad
journed until 2 o'clock.
When the general session came, to
order this afternoon, the committee on
credentials reported u neon tested. dele
rations and asked time to consider
three c >ntests. The request was granl
rd. The report states in conclusion:
"In presenting this report, your com
mittee takes pleasure in reporting that
we have had placed before us creden
tials of David Holmes and John Burns,
representing the trades unions of Great
Britain, and it aftords us unbounded
pleasure to recommend to the conven
tion the seating ut these delegates from
over the ocean, and the granting to
them ot the full privileges of the con
The president then delivered his an
nual report.
Presitlj-nt Gomper*'-Annual Ileport
was submitted to the convention this
iftrrnoon and contains nearly 8.000
vvoids. He camplimunied the organiz
ation upon being able to preserve its
existence during the recent adverse
circumstances. Referring to the coal
mines strike, lie s;tid 125,000 men were
Mil for figbt weeks, and yet there was
hardly a dearth of coal. Considering
this, the establishing ol a minimum rate
of wages was a very great victory. He
defended Hie action of the Federation
In the A. R. I", strike by the assertion
that Mr. Debs' uroposition submitted to
them was a virtual acknowledgment
that the strike was a failure. President
Cleveland's action at that time he se
verely condemned.
The honest effort of the government
to regulate immigration was acknowl
edged, but amendments to the laws
were suggested, the most important of
which were speedy trials of immigrants
Buspected ot being under contract and
the sending of agents to foreign coun
tries to inspect prospective immigrants.
Hope was expressed that the govern
ment telegraph and telephone will soon
be established in connection with the
postoftice department, and unions
among the government employes were
reconirnenaed as aids to the movement.
American seamen were claimed to be
the worst treated of those of any civil
ized nation. The bills in their interest,
and also for the protection of ci^ar-
Btakers, he said, would nave passed the
last session of congress but for the
prejudicial effect of ttse railroad strike.
The establishment of a national hibor
day was teferred tons the only sunbeam
labor received from the last "session of
congress. Hie convention was askea
to indorse the Phillips bill tor an in
dustrial commission. (Joi>ies of the bill
were distributed. The elforts of officers
of the federation for free coinage of
silver were discussed, and a better un
derstanding of the subject by laboring
Uien geuerally was reported.
Opposed to Affiliation.
The matter of proposed semi-annual
fomerences with tiw Knights of Labor
was reft-rrrd to tt;e convention, but a
union of the omanizatious was not rec
ommended. Speaking of the progremme
submitted l>y tile last convention to the
affiliated unions for discussion, Mr.
Uompers strongly opposed any move
ment luoklng to independent political
action by organized labor at present.
Results of local attempts in this line
were cued to show the disastrous ef
A serious strain upon labor organiza
tions was predicted during the coming
winter, but the speaker added: "Un
less every indication is incorrect, and
cause and effect lose their logical se
quence, we are within a year of an in
dustrial revival which, in activity and
ir.tensity. will far surpass that of any
previous period." The present time
was suggested as opportune for the in-,
ausrurauun of a vigorous demand for an
tighl>liour day and fora law prohibit
ing contract work on government im
provements. The proposition to estab
lish compulsory arbitration was de
nounced, and the charge made that
lesiguiDC persons were advocating it as
x means of destroying labor organiza
Many persons, including congress
urn, had written to him on the subject,

there was danger of some auch law

"It is generally accepted," said he,

lliifher dues for the various unions
were suggested as a means of eunfc*>ißK
their usetuluess and auginenliift; their
strength, and the fact was cited that the
only union tliat has increased its ineiiir
bership in the past year has the highest
dues of any in the federation.

report of the tiuauces anil numerical

which is less than at any time since
1800. The report showed that 107 char
ters were issued during the yt-ar for
local and central unions, and state fed
erations in thirty states. Several im
portant amendments to the constitution
were recommended. .Regarding the
proposition that the federation enter

that such action be. confined to work in

President Uompers then introduced
Hon. John Burns, who made a short
address, lie said: "David Holmes and
myself were chosen by the organiza
tions of labor of the old world to repre
sent them in tills, the first American
labor convention at which English rep
resentatives were present. The con
vention that appointed us consisted of
400 members, of whom 100 were mem
bers of parliament, justice or municipal
officers. This shows what a hold or
ganized labor has on the people of Eng
land. 1 shall be pleased to hear ten
years hence that you have progressed as
far as we iiave today. Our coming here
is interesting for many reasons*, one of
which is that the country from which
we come initiated the employment sys
tem. 1 would say. however, that while
hugland inaugurated industrial com
petition, America has eclipsed her in
monopolies." lie spoke feelingly of the
warm welcome they bad received, and
gave some words of advice as to the
future work in the convention.
Mr. Holmes excused himself from
spe.iking on faccount of a heavy cold
contracted on Ins way to this city.
President Gompers, in response to
Mr. Burns, stated that under no gov
eminent on earth have laboring men
been so imposed upon as in America.

may soon improve and that improve

A formal invitation from the trades
assembly to take an excursion around
the "loop"' tomorrow was accepted, as
was one to attend the Lyceum theater,
and to a reception by the hotel employ

W. Heed, of Denver, was introduced to
the convention and made abrief address.
He said: "For fifteen years 1 have been
more concerned about a home over here
than about a home over there. 1 have
regarded the old world as a discipline
and the new world as an opDortunity,
and regret tiiat many opportunities
have been thrown away. We are told
that the workiuratan today is better off
than lie formerly was. To my mind the
Sioux on the plains of Dakota with his
pony and bows and arrows years ago
was better off than some Kansas or
Nebraska farmers today. The working
mnn may be better off than he was. but
he has by no means kept pace with the

Congratulatory telegrams were read
from E. V. Debs and James O'Conneil.
The credentials committee reported
the contests all settled, except that of
the painters' union, and asked for more
time on that. At this point
ySis* Phoebe < oiizing
entered the room and was called to the
front by President Gompers. She spoke
briefly. The president announced some
of the unimportant committees, aud
the convention then took trie painters'
union contest out of the hands of the
credentials committee and seated the
delegates holding the first-issued cre
dentials, Messrs. Coouer and Murphy.
A letter was read from Carl Browne,
Coxey's lieutenant, in which he con
gratulated tiie convention that it had no

that it pass a resolution demanding that

CHICAGO. Dee. 10.—The news In evi
dence today was all against the wheat
bulls, but the uncertainty regarding the
expected report of the government
had a restraining Influence on sell
ers, and Way closed hut J^e -lower.
May corn gained May outs closed

row range. It oueued from }gc to } 4 c
below its closing value on Saturday,
and did not change much afterward.
It was in the main heavy all da), and
there was much to make it so, including
an increase of 1,200,000 bu in the quan
tity of wheat and Hour on ocean pas
sago and a decline of %@ld in prices at
Liverpool. Cables from London report
ed reselling of Russian wheat there at
less than shippers' prices. A Liverpool
firm cabled that the reports from Ar
gentine were coming better as regards
their crop prospects. Financial ruin
was reported to have overtaken the
principal bank and nearly all the chief
commercial houses in St. John's, N. F.
There was an increase of KIA.OOO bu in

a quantity to encourage much selling.
The Enidish visible suuply was esti
mated to have decreased 1,387,000 bu
last week, and New York reported some
lilling of orders there for cash wheat for
export. May closed at 59j^c. Corn was
strong, considering the weak feeling
which prevailed in wheat. The re
ceipts are giving evidence of falling off.
The weakness ol the cash article was
the only bearish feature in today's
trade. The opening price for May was
40%e, and it sold at 4'J}£(«H9%e. After
that it worked up and touched 50)£c for
a moment, but was down again at the
close to 49%(ri>49%c. * .
Oats were a shade firmer, in sympa
hy with corn, and possibly influenced
tby a decrease ot 594.000 bu in the
visible. May started at 32% c, where it
closed after > 4 'c fluctuations.
The provision market was heavy, and
prices ruled lower. The packers hud
products for sale when any one bid tor
them, and sometimes did not wait for
bids, but made offers, shading prices.
Hog receipts were 44,000 head and esti
mated at 33,000 tor tomorrow. Trices at
the close showed the following losses

declaring that the Erie reorganization
plan would be abandoned, and that a
stock assessment would be levied, in

usually large amount, causing a decline
of 1 per cent, while the preferred on
sales of only 4Uoshares,l>roke ?jk per cent
compared with the last previous sale
written was made on Nov. 13 As the
event proved, the circular was issued
after the close of business, but it made
no sugirestion of a stock assessment but
inertly proposed to lay aside temporar
ily the reorganization plan for the rea
son that the earnings of the road are at
present unequal to the payment of tiie
interest on the proposed new bonds
and asked the bondholders who have de
posited their bonus under the plau to
agree to postpone any hostile action un
less a further default iv interest should
occur. Ihe alternative is the abandon

ii«u was done in stocks today. The set*

were flat. Erie and Reading fell, but
tlu' close was above the worst on a cir

that the original reconstruction scheme

withstanding the dullness in Americans
there are signs of more buying from the
