Gompots and oilier labor leaders or the American Federation of 'Labor may continue to aiiaocliite with An- drew Canvagie, August Helmoiri and other so-callfiit "enemies of labor." as members of 'tho National Civic Federation. The labor conven- tion -defcatted the resolution respect- fully 'requesting its officers to.resign from tbe civic federation." President Gompors bitterly assailed the socialists in a. def'enso of (he i-.lv- Jc federation. "There ia nothing wo can do to please the socialist he exclaimed, "unless we go over body, hoots .'tod, breeches to that party .Then they will remain quiet so long us we remain subordinate -to Lliat party. If they succeed in passing this resolution they would offur some- thing else, anything to antagonize the labor movement as a militant force of this country. Tljelr Idea is that the whole nation should be brought to state of poverty and ihvtn by some cataclysm they would come in-io their own and take charge of society.

Today Kev. fl'homas MHchftil, jiastor of New St. James PrMbyterian Church, robbed i.ae court of an Interesting case by nn- Hlng tho contending parties In mar- Ottawa, Nov. Clarke, th'i able aiid exceptionally brilliant par- liiilncntary debater from Red Dew, contributed a speech yesterday to the d'abatu in reply to the speech from the throne, which challenged the keenest attention of thu Mouse: It was a speech free from animus ami yet ivpleto with strong arguments and questions which have not yet been answered. Dr. Clarktt reviewed tbe recent campaign and showed up utt-er hollowness and lack of sincerity in the appeal to the "English-born" and the flag-waving indulged in, Being English-born and a resident of ICug- laud the greater part of his life, tlie attack was all thw more -forceful. Dr. Clarke declared Uiat the de- feat of reciprocity was a serious blow to the West and to Canada as a whole, lie said that little would aver come of thtj predicted commercial and or- ganic union within the Empire, be- cause while it had talked of for i twenty-five years, no one had ever !got down to deta.il. Tho Minister of Public Works. Hon. F. D. Monk, charged -Sir Wilfrid Laur- wlth refusing Alberta and Saskat- chewan the right of dual language, and if the French .members of the legislature are not privileged to ad- dress the house In their native -tongue it is Laurl-er's fault. Mr. McKenzIe, Cape Breton, was the first speaker, and confined him- self largely to the naval question, showing the great benefit th-e Liuir- ier policy would be in building up the Maritime Provinces. A. D. Crosby, thy youthful member who defeated Sir. Fredei'ick liorden, dealt with the fisheries and said Nova Scotia fishermen were now looking for markets els'a.where as a result of the defeat of reciprocity. Red Deer's Able Man Dr. Clarke, of Red Deer, was glad to seo in th'a position at prime minis- ter, a man of .high personal Integrity, a worthy successor to his groat pre- decessor. The Red Deer member at- tributed the growth of Canadian, pros- perity after 1S90 to the increase of foreign commerce, due to the lower- ing of the duties. It yon have a dam across a sti'eam and remove part of it, water will trickle through." A tar- iff is a barrier to foreign commerce. Dr. Clarke found himself unable to congratulate the premier on the aus- picious occasion on which came to power. Mr. Clarke pictured Mr. Borden as being weakened in power, flanked on one side by that Well known selfish patriot, Clifford Sifton, and on the other by tire Nationalist, Henri Eourasea. Tho government, Dr. Clarke sarcastically remarked, was a cabin-et of poor, but patriotic, citizens, succeeding such "bloated plu- tocrats as tbe leader of the opposi- tion and Mr. Fielding. The Red Deer member attacked th-a Conservatives tor their professions of loyalty, dur- ing the campaign. Thy Liberals suf- fered defeat when trying to assuage 'international animosity. The Minis- tsr of Trade and Commerce had spok- en of the etection as a triumph of sentiment. ".lint sal-d Dr. Clark, "the sentiment of tho Canad- ian Manufacturers' Association." A Base Apptal Dr. criticised the Conserva- tives for tlie appeal made to the Bri- tlih-born during the campaign. Tho people of Groat Britain, he said, were loyal to the' flag, although they trad- ed w-Hh the world. He could not un- derstand how Canadians could be- come disloyal by buying and selling with one people. The loyalty cry was not even good nationalism, be- cause it sought to deprive reslctents of Canada who were born In Great Url tain of privileges which they enjoy- ed In the home land. Referring to tnte declaration of the mover of the address for organic and commercial union within the Empire, Dr. Clarke said that he wished tho people who advocated It would got down to details and show how It could be worked. He would approve if the government took steps to make a lowtr duty on woollens in favor o'f the Yorkshire mills, which are much liceilsd In our climate. But that would not meet with the approval of tho chief Conservative whip, Mr. Istnnfleld, and the nKinbers of the ministerial party.
