Scranton Bad Strong Opposition for
the Honor of Entertaining tho
Next Convention of tho American
Federation of Labor Bullotlna
That Have Been Issued by Super
intendent Rlno Four Narrow
Guage Locomotives Turned Out by
the Cliff Works.
Com-ff) II. Ootlitor. the Scrnnton
delegate to the convention of the
American Fetlerallon of Lnbor, which
wns held last week In l.oulevllle, Ky
Is fcellnp constclemblj- eltttort over the
fact that thin city will ho the Hccne
of the 1901 convention, mill, Indeed, It
van largely line to Ills efforts thut

llr. Gothler was peon yeiteidny by
a Tribune mnn, and oxiirenseil hlmsplf
tx fnllowHitibout the feeling of the
convention towards this city: "The
trcneral scnllmcnt of the convention
v.ns entirely In favor of tlila rlty, as
the place of the next convention. AVo

too. put In ti clnliu, but the Luzernlfi
wcio never consldeted as ut all ilntt
geious In the race.
The Hon.TJanicl G. ISceeo was their
delegate. From the beginning of the
convention, President John Mitchell,
ot the United Mine Workers' asso
ciation, was with us, and had he not
proved tho powcrlul ft lend ho did, I
doubt If Scianton would have icomo
out on top.
"The miners, who had the largest
delegation present, vci of ciours?,
mild for us, and alongside or them
wore the clgarmakers, printers, brew
cry workers and longshoremen. Prac
tically our bitterest antagonists wore
the carpenters. Thlr ipprcsentathos
fought us tooth and nail, and spread
lepurts that theie were no balls In
this city largo enough for a conven
tion of the size of the Federation's.
They also declaied that tho hotel fa
cilities of the city were poor.
"The Milwaukee delegates put up a.
good fight. They scattered broadcast
pamphlets and booklets containing
glowing eulogies of their city, and
vetting forth its advantages. We won
out though, 2.200 votes to 1,?00, fhe
mlueis alone conti oiling 1,000.
"This convention will bring to
Scranton next December, nbout three
hundred men, who will represent
about three million working people.
This Is the second attempt we have
made to secure tho convention for the
city, Delegate C. W. Baxter making a
strong try for it last year."
Supeiintendent Klne, of the Lacka
wanna, has posted bulletins announc
ing that today three signals will be
put into service in the Cayuga yard.
The west-bound signal is located near
the water tank, and the east-bound
home signal is located at the west end
of the fill, wet of Cayuga yaid, and
the distant .signal at the point of
curve about 1,200 feet west ol the
llailroadois are instiucted to see
the new automatic block and Inter
locking1 signal rules, effective Dec. 16,
governing tbeso signals. Yesterday
two signals were put into service at
Susquehanna bridge at Pittston.
They are located at the fouling point
at each end of the gauntlet truck.
Knst-bound tinlns approaching within
one-quarter mile of tho cabt-bound
signal will set tho west-bound signal,
and hold it red until tho train has
passed oft! the gauntlet. West-bound
trains will set the east-bound signal
on passing tho west bound signal and
hold it set until tho train has passed
ott the gauntlet. This will give the
cast-bound trains the right ot way.
llnginemen should keep clear of track
i'ii cult when possible, so as not to
t-top oppoMng. trains.
At the Cliff Works.
Four narrow guage locomotives
have been turned out of the Dickson
Manufacturing company's locomotive
shops, on Cliff street, and shipped to
Pittsburg. They are the first com
pleted of the big order of twenty,
three recently lodged with the com
pany by a Smoky City concern.
Another of the freight engines be
ing built for tho Delaware and Ilud
Min Railroad company was yestoiday
turned out and the last ot the order
will follow tomorrow. The last order
given by the Delawaie cud Hudson
consisted of ten engines and very rap
Id work has been done on them by
tho Dickson rompnay.
Gompers Still Leads.
The re-election of Samuel Gompers
n.s president of tho Ameiican Federa
tion of Lnbor is only another proof of
the hold that this vuteian guiding
sphit of the Federation has upon the
members of thu organization.
Many wild rumors weie atlo'it prior
to tho session, that Feciotnry and
TiPiihurer P. d. McGuIro, ot the Car
penters,; President Mitchell, of the
United Mino Worker., and others,
would ho lu the Held for the presi

candidate, declaied thut ho would not
