PENVKR. Nov. IT. Yesterday's dis
cussion of the Danbury hatters case
and the working: of "government by In
junction." and the political speeches
which followed in the convention of
,the American Federation of Labor, were
"not made matters of record 4n the offi
cial report of the proceedings of the
convention. The official publication to
ils v contained only the following brief
mention of these discussions:
-Subject Passed Over.
"A discussion of the Danbury hatters'
case and of the working- of -government
by injunction" generally was entered
Into. Tills was followed by a discus
sion of how these could be remedied
by political action. Those taking part
In the discussion were President Gom
pers. Delegates MoCullough, (Sullivan,
Hayes (Max S.). Grout, Gallagher,
Kuruseth and Walker."
A major portion of the single session
beld today was devoted to the contro
versy In the Electrical Workers- Union.
The discussion was acrimonious and at
times personalities were Indulged In.
The matter came up on the report of a
special committee which has been con
sidering the credentials of delegates
from the contending factions. The com
mittee recommended the seating of F.
J. McNuity. P. W. Collins and K. J. Fay.
and refused the credentials for H. W.
Potter. H. V. -Sherman and J. J. Reid.
It recommended also that a special
convention of the union be beld at St.
I.ouis January 1. 1909. and urged the
two factions to "get together."
Agreed to Keslgn.
After the discussion of the commit
tee's report had lasted more than two
hours. Messrs. Potter, Sherman and
Reid. who are the officers of the seced
ing faction of the union, agreed to re
sign if the officers of the original union,
Messrs. McKulty, Collins and Fay, also
would resign, so that they could then
meet In convention m St. Louis with a
clear slate. The latter officers agreed
to resign before the St. Louis conven
tion, and the report of the special com
mittee was then adopted. 159 to 22.
After the convention adjourned the
executive council met and voted to issue
a charter to the Order of Hallway
Clerks, This charter had been held up
owing -to claims of Jurisdiction by the
Freighthandlers' Union. The matter
was adjudicated at the seslson of the

Name of President Roosevelt.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 17. Arguments
In the contempt case of the Buck Stove
& Range Company against Samuel Gom
pers. Frank Morrison and John Mitchell,
of the American Federation of Labor,
were concluded today. James M. Beck,
of counsel for the stove company, made
a strong plea for his clients. In which
he closely dissected the injunction of
the court against the defendants and
sought to show that they had put them
selves Into contempt by officially pub
lishing the company on the "We Don't
Mr. Beck referred to the cruelty and
Indefensibility of the boyortt and said:
"I have very high authority for say
ing that In a very recent public state
ment the President of the United
States said that, of all forms of op
pression which man had yet devised,
the most cruel is the boycott."
Mr. Ralston, for the defense, object
"I certainly object to the President
of the United States being brought into
this discussion. We all have the high
est possible respect for htm, but he
cannot be quoted as an authority on
matters of this kind."
' Judge Wright overruled the objec
'I suppose counsel In argument have
the rtght to adopt the words of an
other person to convey an Idea, if they
see fit to do so."
Mr. Beck thereupon continued his ar
gument, and at Its close Justice
Wright took the case under advise
ment. A decision is not expected for

CINCINNATI. O.. Nov. 17. President
elect Taft left tonight for j-ot Springs.
"I have not seen a politician nor dis
cussed any political question since com

think I have accomplished my purpose
In coming here, which was a personal
business matter in which there is . no
public Interest, nor should there be."
Bishop Oldham, of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, who haB spent sev
eral years in the Philippines and came
to this country to attend the recent
missionary conference at St. Louis, had
a long talk with Judge Taft today rel
ative to Philippine matters. Incidental

his hearty approval of the recently
published letter written by Judge Taft
to a St. Paul clergyman. In which he
made clear his position relative to the
Judge Taft is planning a trip to Cuba
early In February to witness the relin
quishment of American authority and
the inauguraton of the new Island gov

dial reception at the Grand Opera
House last night, when for the first
time since his election he attended a
theatrical performance, witnessing the
Viennese opera, "A Waltx Dream" Mr.
Taft occupied a box with Charles P.
Taft and Miss Taft. but was not recog
nized until the intermission between the
first and second acts. A storm of ap
plause then greeted hlm.and he ac
knowledged It with a bow.
The demonstration of the evening oc
curred, however, at the conclusion of the
second act. Immediately after the ap
plause hsd died away after the climax,
the orchestra struck up "The Star-Spangled

from the boxes to the gallery rose and
stood while the National antHtm was
being played. Then a tumult of applause
broke forth, amid a veritable tempest of
waving handkerchiefs. Mr. Taft bowed
his appreciation, and then left the box
and the theater.

Judge Barnes today to be hanged on

Billek, a fortune-teller, whose income

death of the Vzrals. all of whose lives
were Insured and which money Billek is
said to have planned to secure. He was
first sentenced on October 7, 1907, and
since that time he has been reprieved
Blllek's last hope, a slender one In
view of the previous attitude of Gov
ernor Deneen. is that the death sentence
may be commuted to one of life impris
