LOUIS LABOR CONFERENCE Many Leaders Present and Yesterday's ScsMion a ISusv One. BUT ITS FAILURE PROBABLE Too "any Different ad Coaflirtiag Inter ets Are KcpreMited Deb Keloses t Committee Appointaeat. St. LouU, August JO The conference of labor leaders which began thl morning had a busy day and tonight th end la In sight. What tbe conference, ha ac complished, if anything, U In doubt. It is. not believed the leader have at tain any defintta result and in fact, the president of one of the national or ganisation said the failure of the con ference waa a foregone conclusion. "I should feel very much chagrined." said this gentleman, "If I had any part In the convening of thl conference." The report of the committee on creden tials showed SS delegate, rc pre Renting the following organization) worn present: United M In workers of America, Social democracy, American Federation of La bor. Stone Cutter International Union, Brotherhood of Painter and Dec rat or. Brotherhood of Bottle Blowers, Building Trade Council of St. Louis. Patriot of America. Brotherhood of Track Foremen. "Single Tax League of America, Cen tral Labor Council of Cincinnati. Inter national Typographical Union, Peoples Party of Kansas and Industrial Order of Freed men. The report after some discussion waa adopted. It was decided, however, that tbe delegates be recognised as coming from the particular organization which they represent Instead of the . gwieral body. The general report showed also the presence of one woman delegate, Mrs. Mary Jones of Chicago, who represents the social democracy. The chairman then named as committee "On rvaoulutions and plan of action." W. G. Pearoe, of ths Miners: W. D. Mahon, of the street railway men; . Berger of Milwaukee. who represents the Social Democracy, In whose favor Mr. Debs declined; O. C. Clemens, of Topeka, representing the populists, and James R. Sovereign. Mr. Ratchford then took tbe floor. He went over the miner's strike from its Inception to the present day and! dweK particularly on "Government by injunctions." He pleaded for prompt action, and com ing to the point of his arguments advo cated a special session of congress as the best an In fact, only relief. The committee on resolution and of action was at work all day and Mr. Sov ereign announced that they had formula ted a plan, but declined to give any de tails. The platform It Is expected will be submitted to the convention tomorrow. The fourteen different organizations represented In the eonveintlon make an unwieldy body and h Is evident that all of them cannot bea.tisfled by a platform formulated by five men representing as many branches of organized labor. Mr. Rathford's plan of petitioning; Pres klerit MeKlnley to convene congress In extra session to enact measures provid ing for the settlement of labor difficulties, or as he put it. "to define the right of citizens, if my" did! not meat with the approval he had hoped for. andi It Is not thought that the plank will be incorpor ated in the platform. Although present In the convention all day. Debs did not speak, nor did he put in an appearance at tonight's mass meet ing, where he was widely advertised to makte an address. It is thought adjournnwnt will reached tomorrow. be THE MARKETS. Portland, August SO. Wheat Valley 85; Walla Walla, S0g;S2. San Francisco, August 30. Wheat 146 (SJ151-T4. New York. August 30.
