Two Busu Sessions Mark the fifth
Dau of the Bla Labor
By Clever Pnrllnmentniy Mnneuver
hg the Convention Lenders Succeed
lu Disposing- of a Testy Issue
Without Going- on Record in i
Manner That Would Offend Either
Side Ticket Scalping- Serves as a
Subject by Which the Socialists
Are Enabled to Inject Some Doc
trinal Speeches Resolution Op
posed by The Tribune Is With
The fifth day of the- convention of tho
American Federation of Labor was
marked by two of Its most Important
and interesting sessions.
The resolution against anti-ticket
scalping legislation brought forth a
lively debate, which among other
things showed that there Is a very
pronounced socialistic- tendency among
the delegates, declarations for public
ownership of public utilities being en
thusiastically applauded.
Chinese exclusion was unanimously
favored, but the convention refused to
accede to the demand of the extremists
from the I'aclflc coast that "JapanesH
and other Asiatics" should also be
barred. Tho leaders of the Federation
thought to "slide" the "Jap question,"
but the Pacific coast demanded action
and the convention was compelled to
fa co the Issue. The matter was so
cleverly handled, however, that It Is
an open question as to convention's
sentiments on the desirability of ad
mitting "Japanese and other Asiatics."
As the record stands the impelling In
fluence was a desire- to avoid compli
cations but the sneoches modify this
in a very marked degree. In a word,
the Japanese question is In the air tu
far as the American Federation of I.ti
bur Is concerned.
Tho matter of a universal label canu
up In a report disfavoring the proposi
tion because of the inadequacy of legal
enactments to protect It. Efforts were,
made to commit the federation to the
universal label immediately upon the
enactment of ptoteeting laws, but they
proved futile.
The resolution to the effect that nf
employer of labor be allowed member
ship In the convention against which
The Tribune has so earnestly advised,
was withdrawn, by Its father, with the
consent of the convention.
Last night the visitors were ban.
quetted by the Central Labor union at
St. Thomas' college hall. All the' celeb,
rlties were there and It proved a very
successful event from every point of.
Favor Ticket Scalping-.,
Till- llcket-scalplng discussion took
up a good part of the time of the morn
Intf session. It was precipitated by th'
favorable repeat of the- committee oil
resolutions on the resolution of the lie
ternatloiial Typographical union pro
testing against legislation that wll
make ticket scalping Illegal.
This discussion was the liveliest
heard so far during the convention.
The socialists demanded government
ownership. lialhoad men denounced
the resolution and declared the sulci
of railroad tickets was none of the con
vent Ion's business.
The resolution favoring ticket .scalp
ers and denouncing the railioads for
trying to stop them from selling, llnally
p.tssed, but the railroad delegates pres
ent asked that their opposition be no
ted. Delegate Taiiquer.i, of Colorado, who
Is also a state senator, opposed the te
porl. "Why seel; enemies?" he asked.
"This Is lioni! of our business,"
nelegate Lee Hart of Chicago re
sponded with a sarcastic! address in
which he said: "Why should we make
love io tin- railroads. The- dear, gener
ous railroads: they love us not."
Then .Mayor Agaril, of Fall-port, HI.,
followed with the sensational state
ment that ihe railroads and not tho
hcalpers should be htanded ns cilm
liinls, "I saw," said Maor Agurd, "
employes mutilate and permit to b
mutilated bodies of victims In thu re
cent .Michigan wreck, no as to defeat
possible) suits for damages, I also saw
a employe' strike it reporter
and fractuie his skull, to prevent him
iTiiiii obtaining facts regarding the
liet at the unit uf Hie tumble, and
declare for goxeniuieni ownership.''
