Paine'sFnrnitureCo. 48 CANAL ST. I •"“."MST* I VOICE. Neither Husky Nor Weak at Detroit. Delegates Get Down to Business. Granger Governor is Warmly President Rompers Sounds the Keynote. Socialist Party Gome in for Lots of Attention. Detroit, Mich., Dec. 8.—One hundred men, representing a constituency of 600,-OOO people, met today in Clauson’s Hall. They were the delegates to the loth annual convention of the American Federation of Labor, over which President Gompers presided, . Hon. Stephen A. Griggs, president of the Common Council, representing the mayor, welcomed the delegates, aud urged them to wield carefully the groat power vested in them. President Gompers, in reply, said that the trade-union movement contained tho elements oi present progress anil future hope; that the liberty sought by the wage-earner could bo only achieved by himself. There were obstacles to be overcome, prejudices to live down, opposition of interested parties to conquer. The watchword of the crisis of today should be, ‘Put none but Americans on guard.’ ‘‘We desire to keep in touch with all of the true reform movements of today. Our object is to achieve the greatest good to tho greatest number, and we thus keep first iii view the interest of the wage earner.” The afternoon was devoted to a business session that proved a lively and exciting one, and wit nessed the preliminary skirmish between the radical and conservative wings of the trade union movement. The report, of the committee on credentials showed tho following national and international organizations represented: Minors, 6 delegates; united carpenters, 5; typographical union, 4; cigar majors, 4; iron moulders. 8 ; amalgamated iron and    steel workers. 8:    boot    and shoe workers- 2; 'horse collar makers, 2; lasters, 2: amalgamated carpenters, I; clothing operators, I; custom tailors, I; furniture workers, I; glass employes, I; harness makers, I; painters and decorators, I; mosaic tile layers, I; knife grinders, I; sailors and firemen, I; tack makers, I; boiler makers, I; barbers, I; brewery workmen, I; hod carriers, I; machinists, I; German typographical union, I; coopers, I; metal polishers, I; electrical street car men, Pennsylvania, the Central Labor Unious of Boston. Milwaukee. Baltimore, Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Cleveland, Sheboygan, Erie, Rochester, Detroit and Birmingham, Ala., and from local and federal labor unions of trades not possessing a national organization. This is a » Larger Number of Delegate* by 25 per cent, than ever before mot in a federation of labor convention. After the acceptance of the committee’s favorable report upon the above delegations, the convention rejected the credential of John Willard of Fall River, issued by the local union of painters of that city, on the ground that the National Union of Painters was represented, and that local unions attached to a national union bad no claim to further representation. Like action was also taken upon tho credential of F. F. Pierce of the Central Labor Union of Lansing, Mich,, on the ground that a charter had not been obtained by that union In proper season. At this point of the proceedings, Gov. Luce of Michigan arrived and was enthusiastically received. Ho looks like a prosperous granger and at ouce got in touch with the delegates, and was repeatedly cheered his address. (ESTABLISHED 1858. > ;ial Marl - Dom -or- Reliably Made FURNITURE CARPETS Cash or Instalments. 1075 to 1079 Washington St. I Th HO Ie said in substance: ‘‘In the name of this magnificent city and peerless Commonwealth, I welcome you. I recognize the importance of tho Interests you represent. ‘‘The laborer furnishes the motive Dowers of the civilization wo enjoy. The capitalist has learned and approved tho power of association. So muon the more does the toiler need to appreciate the value of tho same principle. “I congratulate you upon, your opportunl-,_es. Remember that even the most worthy objects cannot leap into realization by re solve alone. They must bo aohioved by slow and steady growth. “I have been a toiler in the full sense of the term. I was born on a farm, reared on a farm, and jived on a farm until elected governor, when a young man I cleared the trees from a patch or ground, hewed out a home, married the best girl in the world  ty< trees from a patch of grume (uproarious applause), and ny actual muscle surrounded our home with comforts. "I have long been a member of an organization of farmers, and I greet you who come from the mine and railway, the shop and factory, the bench and street.” President Gompers responded earnestly, saying that it was not often delegates to labor conventions were greeted by high executive officials who "Spoke (rom the Elbow." Gov. Luce advanced again tofthe front of the platform and said that he did not often ask to be heard a second time, but that he had been so impressed by President Uornp-ers’ remarks that he wanted once more, as one who for 87 years had borne the burden of hard labor, to express his heartfelt appreciation of the work of the grout labor organization before him. As he left the hall at the conclusion of his address the 16 Massachusetts delegates volleyed out their mystic N. E. O. B. B.— A—L,” the war cry of tile delegates. The next business, the consideration of the credential of Lucien Sauial, from the Central Labor Federation of New York city, brought up what will doubtless prove to be the pivotal issue of the convention. The committee on credentials referred the matter back to the convention for action. A debate of two hours followed, the radl-Thoinas Morgan of Chi-deal of parliamentary sparring Mr. Burial was accorded the floor. his side bf the case. „ tor union admitting its delegates, si be accorded representation in the federir- Simi a1 claimed that the Bait! . including a Gorman section Amor Union, including a Gorman section of the Socialist Labor party, had been grunted this representation, and that it was Inconsistent on the part of President Gompers to ref use a charter to the New York federation. He further claimed that the Socialist Labor party is not a political party in the sense in which this definition is accepted by tile wage-earners of all lands; that in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland trade unions were a part of the socialistic move- "Thoir name is legion” might well be applied to the almost endless variety of lovely, easy rocking chairs at Paine’s Furniture Lo., 48 Canal st. _____________ Atn druggists sell Minard’s Liniment. 25c. Urns Hartshorn's Coistril Balsam. mont; that in Groat Britain the socialists had during the past year carried to a successful conclusion the biggest strikes on record, organized over 500,000 men and were a part of tho Ti ow Trade Unionism. Ho affirmed that in America they simply aimed to advance the wage-earners’ cause, and that while all other political parties were simply agencies for the spoliation of tho toiler, the Socialist labor party was made up of wage-earners, and those for the wage-earners’ interest. At the conclusion of his address, tho whole subject matter was referred to the following special committee of five, with instructions to report by noon tomorrow: W. J. Shields, Frank K. Foster, John B. Lennon, VV. B. Kist and J. Connor.    . President Gompers then delivered his annual address. It was liberally applauded, especially those portions relating to the eight-hour movement, child labor and the remarkable development of tho federation. President Gompers first briefly reviewed the work of the past. and then, speaking of the best course to be .pursued to promote and advance the great cause of labor, in the language of Ira Steward, said, “Tho. way out of the wage system is through higher wages, resultant only from shorter hours. Ho called attention to the necessity of avoiding, as far a.s possible, all controversial questions, and advised the concentration of the whole efforts upon such measures as mot with popular approval. I hat such a course is most calculated to achieve tho greatest success for tho working people, ho claimed the past year had demonstrated. He reviewed the history of the eight-hour movement, from its inception. Of the immediate results of the agitation lie quoted from Secretary P. J. McGuire’s official report, to the convention of the Brotherhood of Carpenters, held in Chicago, last, August, which showed that during the previous season the movement had been successful in 187 cities and had benefited 46,107 workmen in that trade and countless numbers in every other branch of the building trade.    , "From statistical blanks issued within the past two mout hs to the trado unions,” ho said, "I learn that there arc few trades or callings throughout the whole country that have not obtained a reduction in the hours of their labor, or an increase in their wages. "There is no question but that the near future is bright for The Eight-Hour Movement. if the organized wage-workers will but concentrate their efforts upon its achievement. "This movement of ours finds a responsive chord in the hearts and minds of tho overworked and unemployed. It is at onoo a watchword and a rallying cry which will ennoble the men and women of our time, and make the progress and civilization of the future more secure.” Speaking of the great growth of the organization, and of the greater recognition of tho union by tho wage-earners, he said that 913 local branches had been established throughout the country, while 274 charters for local unions were issued from the office of the American Federation of Labor to such wage-workers who have no national union OI their trado or calling. The membership of all organizations except one bas increased from 5 to 35 per cent. Tho non-increase in the olio (tho Lasters’ Protective Union of America) is attributable to the fact that a disastrous conflagration devastated tile contra of their industry at Lynn, Mass.    . As a consequence of the formation of tho national union, ho said, 12 now national and international unions were formed within tho past year, and two are about to hold a convention for the same purpose within a few days. Of the above number. eight have affiliated to tho American r education of Labor, aud tile remainder propose to do so at their next convention. During tho year 1163 authorized strikes have taken place, of which 989 were successful, 76 lost and 98 compromised. The strikes were generally for a reduction in the hours cit labor aud increase of wages, or the maintenance of tho rights of the workers. All report an increase oi wages from 7 to 25 per cent., except one, the silk-workers, who report lesser Cumings, owing to dulness of trade. I ain more than convinced that as the working people learn lo appreciate the Necessity of organization and the federation of all, steadier and larger gains will bo forthcoming as the re suit of our joint eff orts, and we shall be so much nearer the end—-justice to all man kind -for which we so earnestly strive. Ho warned the people who proposed to strike that bluster will not win and that they must pa prepared for whatever buttle they propose. "Such organizations of labor,” he said, ‘‘may at times win victories from their employers, but they are generally of a transitory character. We must not only be right, but possess tim powor to enforce that right, and there is no argument so potent with unwilling or unfair employers to grant reasonable demands as a well-organized trado union, with a well-tilled treasury, to stand them in need should u strike be necessary to enforce the demand. President Gompers referred in com men dation of the project of an international congress in 1893, to ho coincident with tho world a fair, under the auspices of the United States government; demanded the enforcement of the eight-hour law in government work; asked for a suitable Federal alien contract labor law, protesting againsl the amendments proposed to the bill nitro duped during the hist session of Congress, which he said thwarted the vory purpose of the bill. He suggested the extension of the observance of Labor day as an uiimial holiday,and warned them against child labor, and in this latter connection ho said: "Of all the ills that mankind suffers from the unjust and cruel tendencies of modern method!’of wealth-producing, tho one that seems to me to rise to horrible proportions is that of child labor. Our centres of industry, with their mills, factories and workshops, are teeming w ith young and innocent children, bending their weary forms with long hours of daily drudgery, with pinched and wan cheeks and emaciated frames, dwarfed both physically and mon tally, and frequently driving them to premature decay ami death. "The hone of a perpetuity of free institutions is endangered when the rising generation is robbed of the opportunity to enjoy the healthful recreations of the pluy grounds or the mental improvement* of tho school house.” He commended the efforts of the Bailors’ and Firemen’s International Union to effect a unity of Tho Seafaring Craft throughout the world, and said the effort promised to be successful. Bpeaking of labels, he said: "From my experience I am led to believe that if this convention should authorize the Incoming executive to prepare a union label to be issued under such regulations us may be deemed most advisable, much good would result." lie referred to the beneficial effects of ballot reform, and urged the extension of the system until all the States of the Union arn brought into line upon this question. He spoke highly of the work of the organizers, and credited them _ with a large measure of the success with which the movement is meeting. Recently the movement among the corporate and employing classes to combine has taken more rapid strides than ever before, and ho suggested that this policy bo continued. He met the charge of excluding socialistic labor organizations from affiliation with the American Federation of Labor, by saying that he was convinced that the Socialist labor party, as a party, is not entitled to representation in a purely trade muon organization, and denied that ho had ever tried to exclude any one for his ononomic opinions, and insisting that the only requisite to the trade union movement is good standing in a local union. lu conclusion he said; ‘‘As the representatives of thelorganized workers of our country let us lay aside all personal differences and arise to the dignity and loftiness of the great problem aud cause that confronts us, and work out the emancipation of labor from the thraldom that cunning and chicanery have enmeshed us.” Sucretsry Evans’ Ile port w as next presented. He prefaced it by saying that how far the American Federation of Labor has succeeded iii demonstrating its ability to playa leading part in the work of labor reform can be best illustrated by the work it has accomplished. “At the lust annual oouven lion, held in Boston ouo year ago, the question of a reduction in the hours of labor was fully discussed, and methods determined upon by which It could be put into practical operation. "The advisability of selecting the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners to lead iii the movement has been made manifest to all, and the successful result is one which all trade unionists can well feel proud of.” The report shows that during tile term Got. 31, 1890, 274 charters ' Iordan, Harsh J -A.3NTO all OO.
