Con- President Reviews the Suc- cess of the Eight-Hour Movement. SKIRMISH WITH INDIANS. Ranchmen With tllM-Armi mad Ammunition WhltM. _____ CHICAGO, Dec. Miles n. A terday revived a letter from Buffalo Legislative PUtform of the Farm- Gap, S. D., under date of December 6, which says: "Yesterday afternoon a Aliiauce. Coal JUnerm Will 3cxt to Demand Shorter Strikes Con- ducted by the Federation. DETROIT, Mich., Dec. national convention of the American Federation of Labor opened here Monday with ninety delegates in attendance. Acting Mayor Griggs extended an official wel- come. President Doian, of the local Trades Council, also spoke. President Gompers in responding said: "Put none but union men on guard. We know what we want and I think we know how to go about to get it" After the speeches the convention took a recess. President Gompers' annual address advised the convention to avoid contro- versial questions ami concentrate effort upon such issues as the members are most agreed. That such a course is best, is evidenced by the success of the eight-hour movement since toe last con- vention. Tlie agitation for that reform has been successful iu 137 cities and has benefited 4R, 19? workmen in the car penters' trade, besides countless others in other branches of the building-trades. The demand for an eight-hour day wil be made by the other trades in series and its final success can not be ques tioned. The next industry to make the demand will be the coal miners. They will move May 1, 1891. During the year the Federation has established 274 local branches and the National Trades Onion reports local branches established. Existing branches have added from five to thirty-five per cent in membership. The address de- clares in favor of the system of national unions of individual trades. .During the year authorized strikes have taken place. Of these 989 succeeded, 76 failed and 93 were com- promised. Many concessions were gained without resort to strikes. The people who propose a strike are warned that bluster will -not win. and that they must be prepared for whatever battle they propose. The Federation is not always able to assist strikes financially. President Gompers refers in com- mendation to the project of an interna- tional labor congress in 1893, to be coin- cident with the World's Fair; demands the enforcement of the eight-hour law in Government work; asks for a suita- ble Federal alien contract labor law: suggests the extended observance of Labor Day as an annual holiday; warns against child labor, and declares for in- ternational copyright and ballot reform. President Gompers meets the charge of excluding- Socialists by denying that he has never tried to exclude anyone for his economic opinons and insisting that the only requisite to the trades union movement is good standing in a local union. At the afternoon session the commit- tee on credentials went into session. President Gompers appeared before the committee and objected to receiving any papers from the delegates representing the'Central Labor Federation of New York. While the convention was awaiting the report of the committee on credentials Franx K. Foster, of Mas- sachusetts, talked on the rapid progress of trades unions in New England. Adam Menzies, of Denver, Col., spoke encour- agingly of the growth of the labor or- ganizations in the West The committee on credentials then presented their report They decided not to receive the credentials of the delegates from the Central Labor Fed- eration of New York, but permitted them to thoir case to the con- vention and allow thit body to decic'e it Aftf-r the appointment of various comraitt-'-os the convention adjourned until to-day. ___ party of fifteen Sioux at the entrance to jfatjonsii Banks Sbould be Aboil-Led the Bad Lands endeavored to cut off and fl Depositories for capture three cowboys.

Shortly after this letter was received a telegram came from the same place dated Monday, saying: "Ranchmen and Indians had a slight skirmish.

Several short speeches followed tho introduction of the memorial and then 'the convention adopted the following resolution: Resolved, That we are opposed to the Conger lard bill and that we favor the passage of the Paddock pure food bilL Warn and Their RwmltlnK Dlw fJulformUjr U ciBMiflca- tlon WASHING TON, Dec. annual re- port of the Inter-State Commerce Com- mission, after reciting the various hear- ings and decisions rendered bj the com- mission, says that the efforts to influ- ence public opinion against the law bj those desiring its repeal, have in a measure been abandoned and the prin ciple of the legislation accepted as tho settled policy of the country. Appar- ently, and to a large extent actually, the law has been obeyed; but active and severe competition and tie prevalence of rate wars has, at various times and places, occasioned of tha pro- visions as to the publication of rates and tho prohibition of unjust discrimina- tions. Nor have the railway associations formed for tbe purpose of preventing: violations of the law by any moans ful- filled the hopes of their originators. They do but little toward preventing rate wars, secret concussions in rates and other demoralizing practices. The great extent of territory and of railway mileage under tho supervision of the commission, and tho performance of such imperative duties as to making of investigations, supervising of tariffs, the collection of statistics and the hearing and deciding of controversies, precludes the possibility of effective en- forcement of the law by the unaided ef- forts of the commission. But had the commission the power which has 'hereto- fore been asked for. to conduct investi- gation through special agents, it would have a means of enforcing the law which does not now exist. The commission has not received from the carriers the aid that might have been expected in preventing violations of the law by their competitors in the granting of rebates, etc. Influenced by tbe fear of offending influential ship- pers, the course pursued is to meet tho illegal concession, not to expose it The subject of rate wars and rate cut- ting is discussed at length and the re- sulting evils of discriminations and other violations ot the law are pointed out The suggestion is made that the practice of rate cutting appears to the public to furnish evidence of no slight weight, that published rates are already higher than they onght to be. The desirability of greater uniformity in the classification of freights is pointed out, and it is shown that the railway to the sug- gestions of the com finally decided upon a uniform classification to effect at an early day, throughout almost the entire territory of the United States. The long and short haul question re- ceives long and able treatment The carriers are adjusting their charges more and more to the requirements of the law, and complaints against it are becoming less frequent.
