of Labor onvention up to 12 oclock was chiefly akein up in appointing committees and iearing reports The special committee ppointed to examine the credentials ol jucien Sanial from the Central Federa ion of Labor of New York city announced heir readiness to report and the report was ailed for Their report which was a long me stated that the committee had made a careful investigation of the matter They had listened to statements from resident Gompers Iiucien Sanial Au gust Wallinger and Ernest Bohm Socialists Are Not Wanted They recommended the cordial accept ncij of the fraternal expressions prof ered by the party through Vfr Snninl and declared that the hopes ind aspirations of the Socialist and Labor unionists are very similar The commit tee held that the American Federation of jibor is committed against the introduc ioii of matters political or religious and hat it could not logically admit tlie So cialist Labor party to representation and hut its door in the face of other political orgnnizations The committee expressed he opinion that no political party was en itled to representation in the American Federation at the same time deprecating the necessity which had arisen of refusing seekers of their companionship that priv ejje The Federation Officials Indorsed They accordingly recommended that the credentials presented by Mr Sanial from he Central Labor Federation be returned that the action of President Gompers in refusing that body a charter be affirmed iVy the convention that the action of the executive committee in refusing to return to she Central Federation its charter be affirmed as that body virtually ceased to exist when the charter was surrendered that the convention while declining to ad min representatives from the Socialistic Labor party at the same time declares tsulf tolerant of all phases of the reform movement and that it would bar no dele gate on the ground of his individual polit ical or religious belief Wanted Further Consideration Delegate Morgan presented a motion which was seconded providing that no ac tion be taken on the report of the commit tee that the report IK published in full together with the statements of President Gompers and Lucien and referred to the bodies represented in the conven tion which shall consider the matter thor oughly and instruct their delegates the convention as tp what couree they shall pursue hn anticipation again being brought up at that Mqr gan made a brief address in supportof his motion The motion was debated for some time but finally voted down Move lo Reject tlie Report A resolution was then offered rejecting the report of the committee and providing that the petition of the Central Federation of Labor for a charter be allowed and that Sanial be given a seat in the convention The latter part of this motion was ruled out of order by the president After much discussion the previous question was called for and a poll vote asked for Overwhelmingly Defeated This resulted in eighty delegates casting 1089 votes for the adoption of the commit tees report while thirty delegates with a total of 535 votes cast them negatively The report vas therefore adopted and the American Federation of Labor had taken its stand upon the Socialistic ele ments entrance into its organization The convention then adjourned for the day Kcports and Resolutions The announcement during the session of the formation of two new national unions retail clerks aud the waiters and bar received with applause The treasurers report showed receipts for the year expenditures A number of resolutions

permitted ator Iettigrew lias a Radical feolu noli if u Vexed Question Dec Pettigrew of South Dakota who is tit the Fifth avenue hotel has HJI idea which if put j into execution soon make sealskin clonks worth their weight iugold This is what he said to a reporter All of the seals in Alaskan waters should be external Dated This government should pay a bounty for each st al killed until they are all gone If the seals were exterminated the Alaskan waters would be the greatest fishing waters in the world The seals feed on codfish Eaeh see1 eats five or 6 pounds of codfish per day Fishing for Coil More Profitable Now instead of having a great fishing sea destroyed entirely I think it would be more profitable to kill every seal and let the fish be the prey of man The seal company gives employment to some 300 Aleutians or Indians but if the waters are rid of seal and given over to iishing at least 10000 American citizens would have employment Alaska would then amount to someihiug aud the Behring sea diffi culty would soon be settled SeiilRkin Sacfiues 1iilieultliful In my opinion the seals will be exter minated in three or four years anyhow They do not contribute anything specially to the comfort of the masses in this coun try Wearing sealskin is conducive to pneu monia anj way and those who have the money to buyscch highpriced wearing material shorten their lives Why the United Slates has nothing to do with mak ing sealskin wearing material it all goes to England where a skin is purchased at then after due process is sent to this country and sold for It can plainly be seiti that if thousands oj Americans were given employment in fishing for cod in Alaskan waters more benefit would accrue to this country TIDE HOME FIELD News of interest Gathered in Our
