relative merits of La Grande and Pen

not contemplated so lengthy a meet

night. An attempt to change entirely the
basic principles underlying organized
labor through a resolution indorsing
the "one-big-union" plan was neatly
sidetracked when the measure was
tabled by a vote of 37 to 26. Motion
for non-concurrence had previously
been lost. A resolution upholding the
doctrine of self-determination and fa
voring independence for the Irish, in
troduced by G. H. Baker and others
of Bend, carried, as did a recom-'
mendation to encourage the disem- j
ployment of married woruen.
Shorter Day Advocated.
Nearly an hour was taken up In de
bate over a resolution having as its
object, placing the convention on rec
ord as favoring a shorter working
day. Chief among the arguments
used against the measure was that it
would be inimical to the farming in
terests. That a shorter working day
would provide a greater amount of
employment and would not hamper
production on account of increased
efficiency were the chief arguments
used by the backers of the measure,
led by E. R. Dodds of Portland and
L. W. Buck, secretary-treasurer of
the Washington federation. The res
olution was carried by a decisive ma
jority. Featuring the business of the morn
ing session was the passage of a res
olution handled through the laws and
legislation committee asking the fur
nishing of free textbooks for the pub
lic school of the state, and one sug
gesting a change in existing laws to
provide for the gradual adoption of a
