A. F. OF L, RESENTS
ON LINCOLN GIFT
Former Attorney General
McRcynolds Criticised for
Decision Declared Oppos
ed to 8-Hour Law.
Former Attorney General Mcnoynoldi,
now Asfc'clate Justice of the Supremo
Court of tho United States, was criticized
at tho convention of tho American , foil
ration of Lnbor, In Horticultural Hall,
today for a decision which Vlco President
Duncan, of the Federation, said Mr. Mc
Itoynolds made on tho eight-hour work
day as It applies to ffo-crnment work.
According to Mr. Duncan, Mr. Mcltcy
nolds whon-Attorney Gincrnl rendered an
opinion to the effect that all material used
on government bulldlnR operations was to
bo considered In the nature of supplies,
and vns to be put chased In tho open mar

According to n report presented by Mr.
Duncan, Mr. McRcynolds gave his opinion
on tho basis of a statement mado by
Secretary of Labor Wilson on the floor
of the House of Representatives when ho
was a member of Congress from Penn
sylvania. Mr. Duncan Muted, as a result
of the opinion of Mr. McRcynolds, tho
Lincoln Memorial, now being constructed
, at Washington, was being- built by non
union labor with material supplied by
The convention adopted tho report of
the committee to the effect that n thor
ough Investigation bo mado on tho sub
ject and that an effort be mado to ob
tain another opinion from present Attor
ney General Gregory, and that If the lat
ter's opinion also proves unfavorable an
offoit bo mudc to obtain additional legis
lation from Congress which would com
pel tho application of the Federal etelit
hour act ndt only directly to Government
operations but to tho purchase of ma
terial and supplies.
A motion picscntcd by Delegate John
B. Lennon was adopted declaring that
tho construction of the Lincoln Memorial
by nonunion labor and under circum
stances in accord with Mr. McRcynolds'
decision "was entirely out of harmony
with tho life and work of tho President
In whoso memory the memorial is being
Tho resolutions committee In making
Its report recommended that tho framing
of n comprehensive employers' liability
law be entt listed to tho executive council
of the American Federation of Labor, In
view of tho wide differences in tho matter
between the various organizations in tho
Arorlcan Federation of Labor.
Tho Resolutions Committee reported
favorably on tho necessity of the en
action of a Federal compensation act, tho
principle points of which are to be that
widows should have compensation for the
death of their husbands during widow
hood and for every child under 18 years
of age, and that the law bo administered
by State commissions appointed for tho
A spirited discussion was held on the
question of a clause In tho proposed Fed
eral compensation act recommending a
compulsory physical examination to bo
undergono by every worker when enter
ing any employment.
Delegate Dauget, of the Trade and
Labor Council of Schenectady, said that
In many cases employers compel women
workers to undergo a physical examina
tion which is offensive to them, as well
as UBtng the physical examination clauso
In some of tho States which have a com
pensation act as a means of discriminat
ing ngalnst workers active in the labor
n. B. INSURANCE CRITICISED.
Criticism was also made of tho in
surance systems employed by the Penn
sylvania, Baltimore and Ohio and other
railroads as being unjustly compulsory
upon the employes.
Delegates John B. Lennon and John
"Walker, of Illinois, favored a physical ex
amination clause In cases where the
physical examination of a workman Is
necessary for tho protection of the in
terests of the public and fellow employes,
whoso safety Is dependent upon a man's
physical ability to perform certain du
ties. Delegate Walker opposed, However,
physical examination whero It was un
I necessary and whero such examination
l -would bo an Instrument In tho hands of
1 employers to discriminate against union
Delegate Flint, of New York, expressed
himself as against all physical examina
tions. Delegate Hugh Frayne, of NewYork,
opposed a physical examination on tho
ground that, wherever It Is permissible,
employers use It to weed out married
men from employment In order to reduce
their risk and liability.
A great congress of organized labor Is
to be called at the close of the European
war, If the resolution Introduced by
Samuel Gompers, at the convention of the
American Federation of Labor, will be
adopted Muring the course of this week.
The congress will be held wherever the
proposed peace congress at the close of
tho war Is to be held. It Is the popular
belief among the delegates that the reso
lution will probably be carried, In view
of the, fact that it has been penned and
Is championed by Gompers.
According to the resolution the meeting
will be held "to the and that suggestions
may be made and such action taken as
shall ba helpful in restoring fraternal re
lations, protecting the Interests of the
tollers and thereby assisting In laying tho
foundations for a more lasting peace."
Tha resolution deplores the war and ex
tends fraternal greetings and sympathies
to the workers ndw, righting In Europe.
Much of the business of the convention
during Its. second week's session will ba
taken up by the settlement of Jurisdic
tional disputes, some of tha disputes ex
tending over a long poriod of time. Many
of these difficulties are attributed to the
constantly changing developments In In
dustry and the Increasing tendency
toward .specialization on one side and the
llmlnatlon of skilledlabor on the other.
DISPUTES TO BE ADJUSTED.
It Is pointed out that whereas In for
mer days the carpenter was virtually the
only worker in wood, todav the -wnml
working Industry Is virtually divided
among several Important groups of ar
tisans, each of whom are organized Into
separate unions. Frequently there Js
overlapping In these Industries and here
the difficulties begin A dispute .whleh
the convention will have to decide along
this line will be between tha United
Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners
cwd the Sheet Metal Workers. The differ
ence resulted In tb withdrawal of the
carpenter, the second largest union In
Amwlca. from tho building trades depart
ment of tha Federation ltMif. The long

LABOH LEADERS DEPLORE
ADVANCE OF MILITARISM
I am emphatically and Uncompro
misingly opposed to any scheme to
enlarge the United States nrmy and

executive council of the American
Federation of Labor and reiterate the
opinion that those who wish to abolish
war must lose no opprtunlly to Impart

the encredncss of human life a part

It would prove a serious mistake to
continue to Improvo the military es
tablishment. We now see constant
arming for war In Europo has pre
cipitated the greate't conflict of all

reipilro centuries to recover from. It
stands to reason whore a man loads
himself up with revolvers, dirks and
other murderous Instruments he Is
bound to get In trouble. It Is Just so
First Vlco President, American Federa
tion of Labor.
I believe nn attempt is to bo made
nt tho opening session of Congress to
cienta n. larger army and navy. In
fart, I saw a tetter sent out to subordi

ordering further recruiting. Militarism
Is wrong, reactionary, burdensome nnd
at variance with civilized Boclcty.

MR S.THOMAS FREER OUTSIDE
SUFFRAGE WORK, SHE SAYS
Plans to Continue Agitation for
Mrs. J. D. Thomas, who resigned from
the presidency of tho Woman Suffrage
Soclctv after sharply criticising tho al
leged failure of Mayor Blankenburg nnd
City Council to provide funds for tho re
lief of the city's unemployed, will con
tlnuo Independently her suffrngo work
and her efforts to help tho unemployed,
according to a statement from her today.
At the time Mrs. Thomas handed her
resignation to tho society, sho also re
signed from all other suffrage organiza
tions of which sho was a member.
"I took the action voluntarily," said
Sirs. Thomas, "because I found It difficult
nnd sometimes embarrassing to speak as
the president of tho society on tho ono
hnnrt nnd on tho other ns an Individual.
1 sent In my resignation voluntarily, ex
pecting It to bo nccepted. In the accept
ance of the resignation I find myself moro

I can help Although I am no longer
nfllllated with BUffragn organizations, I
am JiiFt as staunch a BUffrnglst ns ever,
nnd shall continue to do whatever I feel
capable of doing."
Mrs. Thomas said further that, although
she Is not officially connected with suf
frngo ork, she expects her friends both
In nnd out of suffrago ranks to aid her.
She intimated that tho Incident of her
criticism of the Mayor and city officials
for the plight of tho unemployed would
not deter her from further efforts In be
half of the men who lack employment.
"I have no quarrel with nny ono," she
said. "Whatever criticism. I make or have
made li entirely constructive
"A critical condition exists now In tho
largo number of men who have no work.
There should be funds for their relief. I
shall nppenl and shall nsk my friends to
appeal to tho city administration to Iny
nsldo minor considerations and aid In this
, "Tho question is, If there Is no fund for
tho Help of the unemployed. Is It not pos
slblo to crcnto such a fund? There cer
tainly should be some menns of raising
money to cope with nn emergency like
that now confronting us. I know that wo
all want a city beautiful beautiful parks
and bcnutlful streets but first we must
have well-fed men."
NEGRO, ALLEGED GEM THIEF,
GIVES BATTLE TO POLICE
Two Officers Injured In Attempt to
A Negro accused of robbing threo
Jewelry stores within a half hour early
today put up a terrific light with two
policemen, chewing the hand of ono and
severely bruising the other by hitting
him over the head with a brick wrapped
In a bag. The man gavo his name ns
John Perkins and said ho lived near 22d
and Lombard streets.
Perkins was held without ball by Mag
istrate Harrlgan at the 3d and De
Lanccy streets station. He was captured
by Policemen Kelly and Jones at Gth and
Spruce streets. Kelly said ho caught tho
man robbing ono of the windows. Tho
prisoner's pockets were filled with
w niches and Jewelry, ho said.
Tho pollcemon say Perkins, armed with
a 1rIclc wrapped In a flour sack and a
diamond tipped glass cutter, first visited
tho store of Isaac Goldberg, at 270 South
fith street There he scratched and broke
a piece from tho plate glass window and,
Teaching Inside, took as many watches
and scarfplns as he could gather. The
next store visited, the police say, was
that of Isadore Putsten, of 637 South
street. Apparently he did not Btop to use
tho glass cutter here. A big hole was
smashed in the window.
Putsten missed four gold watches and
two gold trophy cups when he opened
the store a few hours later. Perkins'
next stop was at 623 South street, a
Jewelry store owned by iBaac Bogdanoff.
Patrolman Kelly had Just turned the
corner at 6th street when Perkins began
work on the plate glass window. Kelly
crept up as close -as possible, he said,
and watched Perkins with the glass cut
ter, scratch out a large circle on the
window. Then PerklnsNrapped the glass
with the padded brick and the glass fell
In. He reached In and withdrew several
Kelly started forward, but Perkins saw
him and set oft northward. Kelly fol
lowed, firing his revolver In the air. At
6th and Spruce streets Perkins slowed
down and waited for the patrolman. A
furious fight followed,
Perkins tore Kelly's fingers to the
bono with bis teeth. Then Patrloman
Young, of the 3d and De Lancey streets
station, ran up and tried to help Kelly.
Perkins waited for a chance and swung
the padded brick against Young's head.
Young's face was badly cut. Finally tha
Negro gave In nnd went to the police
station- The two patrolmen were treated
at the Pennsylvania Hospital.

MRS. FRIEDA TROST,
A STOIC PRISONER
Murderess, Serving Life

A frflll little woman, who, for tho love of
another Woman's husband and the desire

Eastern Penitentiary serving a life sen
tence In payment for the crime.
The prisoner, Mrs. Frieda Trost, foAner

was sub'cciuently found guilty by a Jury
In Judge Audcnrled's cdurl, has served
almost n year of tho term.
When sho entered tho penal Institution
on December K. Inl3, nfter tho Govornor
had spared her llfo by commuting the
scntonco to llfo Imprisonment, sho was In
poor health and It was thought she would
not live long. ,
HEIl HEALTH IMPROVED.
Although she tins been tn prison nearly
11 months, Mrs. Trost has greatly re
gained her health and Is almost a dif
ferent woman from tho murderess, bo
hind whom the door of tho big prison
closed for llfo.
Warden "Hob" McKcnty said today that
Mrs. Trost was a moVlcl prisoner, that
sho docs the work asslgjncd to her with
out a murmur, nnd seems resigned to
her fate. Not once during her Imprison
ment has she snld anything about tho
crime for which sho Is being punished,
although prior to and during her trial
she steadfastly mnlntnlncd her innocence,
declaring she had purchased arsenic at a
nearby drugstore to poison cats, nnd not
Mrs. Trost has few IMtors, the only
two being hor sister nnd a minister.
From time to tlmo they visit her In
her cell nnd offer words of cheer nnd en
couragement to the woman. Only once
Blnco sho has been In prison has her only
daughter, Irene, 11 years old, visited her,
and her former bnrtender and lover, Kd
mund Geunklc, has never seen her since
December H, 1812, when sho was con
victed. Like mnny other women prisoners, Mrs.
Trost spends a part of each day in the
workrooms engaged in making clothing.
Mrs. Trost keeps her cell spotlessly clean
nnd according to tho ofTlclala at tho

service. The service Is hold in the cor
ridor Just outside of the cellrooms and
during the religious exercise the pris
oners are allowed the privilege of sitting
on stools In the corridor while the service
Is In progress.
ORDEAL OF HER TRIAL.
MrB. Trost wns arrested at her home
on Germnntown nvenuc bv Detectives
Emmanuel and Delshaw a few days after
Coroner's Det'ectlvo Paul had determined
her husband's stomach contained arsenic.
In the trial that followed witnesses tes
tified that Mrs. Trost had been unduly
intimate with her bartender, Edmund
Guenkle, a good-looking German.

MRS. THOMAS GREGORY
Wife of the Attorney General in the Wilson Cabinet.
NEW CABINET LADY THIRD
TO HAIL FROM AUSTIN, TEX.
Mrs. Gregory, Wife of Attorney General, Busy
House Hunting With Her Daughter Tries
To Be Unknown a Little While Longer.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 There's a
brand new Cabinet lady como to town
a very good looking Cabinet lndy, with an
equally good looking daughter Just out
of collvgo and ready to mako her debut;
and, what's more, she's tho third of the
present group of Cabinet hostesses to
come from Tcxns yen, even from llttlo
old Austin. What wonder If Austin Is
wearing tho satisfied Bmllo of one, who,
after long neglect, Is at last being ap
preciated at her true worth?
Mrs. Thomas Gregory, who was spend
ing tho summer nt Blue Itldgo Summit
with her children nt the tlmo of her hus
band's appointment as Attorney General
(vlco Mcltcynolds, promoted to the Su
prime Bench), Is In Washington house
hunting. When a Woman with a daugh
ter of "debuting" age Is known to be
ton natuinlly conjures up visions of gal-huuse-huntlng
In Washington, WaBhlng
ety for th yqunser set. And when a
now Cabinet woman comes to town, all
Washington, moro or less, wants to meet
her. But mooting Mrs. Gregory Just now
is not so easy as those who met her
last winter might expect.
No, Indeed It hasn't gone to her head,
or anything like that. Only she's ter
ribly busy. Almost with tears In her
eyes she pleads, "Just let me get a roof
over my head and ft few clothes to my
bnck, nnd then I'll be de-lighted I" Sho
fancied she wasUravellng Incog, or some
thing of thnt sort, when, Instead of
going back to tho Dewey, where she
spent a gocd deal of last winter, she
established herself at n sort of subli
mated boarding house out on G streot.
But thero Isn't n boarding house In Wash
ington that can serve ns a bushel to hide
tho light of a new Cabinet lndy!
HER DAUGHTER VERA' POPULAR.
Mrs. Gregory promises to be a distinct
addition to the always exclusive little
group of Cabinet hostesses. She Is rather
short, but decidedly graceful, has good
fenturcs and lovely coloring, with deep
violet eyed nnd a quantity of very dark
hair. Her daughter. Miss Jane Gregory,
who graduated from the University of
Texas lost June, is exactly like her
mother, nnd when she enters the lists
some of the most promising of the sea
son's debutantes will have to look to
their laurels. In college her popularity
Is attested by the fact that she was
chosen "Lady of the University," by vote
of the student body, an honor to which
neither scholarship nor personality alone
can attain. It argues both.
It seems rather out of proportion that
three of the ten Cabinet women should
have been born In Austin, Not only were
they born there, but Adele Stelner, now
Mrs. Burleson: Helen Beall, now Mrs.
Houston, nnd Julia Nalle, now Mrs,
Gregory, really grew up together and
were closely associated during their girl
hood In the little Texas capital. Between

The Burleson girls are looking forward
as keenly as their mother to the plensure
of teaching Jano Gregory tho ropes of
ofilclnl life In Washington. Mrs. Hous
ton has not lived much In Texas since
her marriage, but sho was delighted
when she camo to Washington nn ab--luo
stranger at tho beginning of the pres
ent Administration to find her dear old

woman like herself, and one whoso long
acquaintance with Washington would
make straight many n seemingly devious
way to a newcomer. Now both nro

Really, so far as Mrs. Gregory Is con

her position. Sho was In Wnsblngton a
good part of last winter, picking up
naturally nnd easily the little peculiari
ties of official etiquette. Sho was at tho
Dewey with her youngest, llttlo Miss Cor
nelia, an endearing young person of eight
or nine jears, who tyrannized over guests
and employes alike at the hotel, and her
mother says was in serious danger of
being spoiled there. There are prob
ably qulto a few persons In Washington
today who hate themselves for neglecting
tho opportunity of cultivating Mrs. Greg
ory then. But her husband, being merely
one of Mr. McReynold's trust busters,
tbey saw no particular reason for going
out of their way to bo civil to her. And

Ironies of the situation that Mrs. Gre

200,000 tTow Members of Interna

"A peculiar situation," said Mr. Hayes,
"has developed among thi clothing work
ers of tho clothing Industry, numbering
about 110,000. For several years tho rus
tom tailors, tho most skilled and highest
paid of tho crafstmen, have clamored for
an amalgamation of nil trades.
"Tho officers of the workers on mon's
garments and women's garments, two
sepnrnto International unions, opposed the
Idea. Last summer, at a convention In
Cleveland, the officers of tho workers on
ladles' garments were not re-elected and
their places were filled with men who
favor a clothing workers' federation as a,
first step toward amalgamation."
