THOMAS f. KIDD'S FINE SPEECH
Officers of American Federation of
Labor Talk of the Problems
Xovr Confronting: the
Worklnjfman.
Notwithstanding: the warm -weather.
Cordray's Theater was well-fllled last
night by an audience that gathered to
hear addresses by James Duncan, vice
president, and James B. Lennon. treas
urer of the American Federation of La
bor, and Thomas I. Kldd, president of
the Amalgamated "Woodworkers Associa
tion. The meeting was called to order by
George T. Harry, president of the State
Federation of Labor, and around him
were seated the representatives of the
various central bodies. Among those who
occupied chairs were Charles Mickley,
George M. Orton, Horace A. Duke. Frank
Calkins. J. S. Hutchinson. A. R. Lawton.
N. P. Jorgenson, J. T. Morgan. Charles
E. Hoyt, H. DImick. Thomas Brande, J.
E. TVilson and L. D. Reed.
The first speaker of the evening was
Mr. Lennon, who was Introduced by
President Harry. In the course of his in
troductory remarks Mr. Harry said that
Mr. Lennon was one of three gentlemen
who represented the greatest labor organ
ization the world has ever known. They
were on their way to San Francisco to
attend the convention to be held on the
21st, and he humorously connected the
problems to be considered with the pre
vailing high temperature. In conclusion,
he Introduced Mr. Lennon.
Hoiv to "Wipe Out Sweat Shops.
Mr. Lennon said that during his trip
to the West he never met with greater
hospitality than was extended by Port
land. The Western world offered the
possibilities of a vast empire in an in
dustrial senso, and it opened up a field
for both men and women. Speaking of
his order, he said that the principles
were purely democratic There was no
distinction between the East and the
"West, and one section of the country re
ceived as much consideration as the
other. But the sweat shops and the con
dition of the cotton mill operatives should
receive attention. Their condition could
be Improved by legislation, such as has
"been promoted by all unionists, and
which has served to relieve the various
crafts. The workingmen had to depend
upon their members for their laws, for
during the past 50 years all remedial acts
wpre secured through their instrumental
ity. Speakin5.1Offc.the bqnpfits of unionism,
he ventufl 'tna,""5ssertlon that the mem
bers of the local unions were receiving
more pay and had shorter hours than
others who had not affiliated with the
organizations. Men employed at tailor
ing (his own occupation) had received an
Increase of $5 per week generally, and
the increase was due to unionism.
Reverting to the sweat shops, Mr. Len
non said that there was only ono tiring
for the union men to do, and that was
to crush them out. This might be ac
complished by a demand for goods bear
ing the union stamp, and an absolute re
fusal to take anything that bore the
marks of child-labor or of women driven
to death in the sweat shops of New York.
Kidd on Future of Unions.
Thos. I Kidd. one of the vice-presidents
of the American Federation of Labor, was
the next speaker. "I listened to the
eulogy of my friend, Mr. Lennon. about
Portland, and I fully indorse all he said
about your beautiful city," began the
speaker. "I cannot say enough in regard
to the hospitality I have met with
amongst you. At the very outset, let mo
state that we have met here tonight to
discuss the future of the trades-union
movement, as we see it. As Lennon has
said, trades-unionism knows no geograph
ical limitation. The workers of the world
are being banded together. In recent In
ternational trades-union conventions
American and British societies have met
as fellow-workers united in one aim,
knowing no geographical surroundings,
and saying: 'We are one. In future
wordl's trades-union congresses we shall
have, In addition to those delegates of the
English-speaking Tace, delegates from
France, Germany, Italy, and representa
tives from every country under the sun.
There will be no division. The future
safety of the world depends on the future
of organized labor. When nearly all the
world thought that war was brewing be
tween the United States of America and
Great Britain over the Venezuela ques
tion, British workingmen delegates said:
'If war is declared tomorrow we will not
shoot down our American fellow-workers.
Let the American and, British speculators
who started the trpuble fight it out.
They started It.' (Laughter.)
"Some day war will be no more and
there will be universal peace. Armies will
no longer be employed, and great navies
will rust at their moorings. I say. If our
moneyed men and politicians want to do
any fighting, let them go ahead. There is
nothing to prevent them. People like Len
non, myself and others are often accused
of being people who stir up discontent.
That is true. We are out to stir up all
the discontent we can about a good many
things. I never see a man with his shoul
ders prematurely bent with the toll of
many weary years and his hair whitened
working away as he makes wealth for oth
ers, and then thrown aside like a cast-oft!
tool, but I am discontented. When I see
little children working in the mines and
in stifling factories, I am discontented.
Laborers are often prevented by sickness,
death of ones dear to them, loss of work
and worldly misfortune, from laying up
something for the inevitable rainy day,
and then there Is nothing for them but the
poorhouse. I am again discontented.
"Strike, and Strike to "Win."
"I would take children out of the mills
and factories of the South and East and
give them education. I would take idle
men wandoring the streets and give them
employment In places of the children who
would then have been withdrawn from em
ployment. Satisfied? When I hear a man
or woman say 'I am satisfied.' I put him
or her down for a 'chump.' Such people
as those I have just mentioned are peo
ple who don't think, who do not make
the most of life. Just as soon as we say
we are satisfied, we take a step backward
never forward. There is no progress. It
Is said that we go on strike sometimes.
We do. And it is said that we, In so
doing, disturb the harmony existing be
tween employer and employed. We are
told that we interfere with the rights of
the employer, which are like the handle
of this water-jug the handle is all on one
side. (Laughter.) Yes. we strike, and
strike to win every time. In the coal
strike in Pennsylvania we sec, the idea
of a man appealing for his rights to an
other man who owns coal mines. The
miners have struck work against 'condi
tions which are just as villainous as those
human chattel evils existing in the South
before the Civil War.
"In JHazleton, Pa., there lives a man
who, for convenience sake, I shall call
Mlneowner Smith. He sells coffins, and is
the Poo-Bah of that place. He runs a
large store. If a miner gets sick. Smith
gets him a physician. When a child is
born In a miner's family. Smith gets the
medicine and attending physician. Does a
child die. Smith gets in his work again,
and when the little coffin is required, why.
Smith gets that coffin. So, you see, so far
as that mining tommunlty is concerned, it
is a case of Smith from the cradle to the
grave. Smith charges his own price and
gets it. You cannot go anywhere else. I
hope the coalminers will win, and will
achieve one of the grandest successes that
will be inscribed on the scroll of organ
ized labor.
Evil of Child Labor.
"We are criticized because of our
strikes, but we go right ahead. We are
criticized from the pulpit, and I have
no respect for the pulpit when Christi
anity is not preached there. They tell
us to take the capitalist by the hand and
give him a good shake, but he does not
want it. They tell us of a golden home
and of a golden harp, on which we shall
twang, in the sweet by and by, but wo
don't want a home in that ftV off age.
JUDGE WILLIAM H. TAFT
"WHO HAS SUCCESSFULLY ENDED THE XEGOTIATIOJfS WITH
THE VATICAX.
We want one right now and here.
(Laughter.) We don't wan,t the purse
divided, we want the purse to get our
fair share of the dividing. At Scranton,
Pa., I recently- saw a labor parade be- 1
cause of the strike, and I saw a crowd of
little boys walking in the procession. I
said to a man near me: 'I suppose these
are miners' sons, walking beside their
fathers.' The man replied: 'Oh, no. These
are all miners and they work In the
mines. These little fellows are breaker
boys.' If I had been a citizen of the
great State of Pennsylvania I would have
hung my head in shame at such a condi
tion known to exist. Many of the boys
were between C and 7 years old, and they
work in the mines separating the foreign
matter from the coal. They work far un
derground, far from the pure air. the
music of the birds, the sun. Their fingers
are often split and bodies bruised, for
what? Fifteen cents per day, and to
make a millionaire mlneowner a little
richer. Such a condition should not be al
lowed to exist, and when all working peo
ple are properly organized it will not bo
permitted to exist. I remember seeing
several little girls of 6 years of age work
ing in a cotton mill in Alabama 12 hours
every day. A girl of 9 years said she
had worked three years in the mill. At
Charleston. S. C. there was recentlv a
meeting of presidents of great cotton !
mills, and they were afraid because they !
knew that the American Federation of
Labor was after them. They proposed to
recommend that bills be drawn for presen
tation to the Legislatures of North and
South Carolina, enacting that no children
under 12 years of age shall work night
shifts in mills, and that on the day shifts
all children must be 10 years old. They
thought by so doing they would prevent
our going on with our work in the di
rection we are proposing., but we won't
etop until a law is passed forbidding the
employment of any child under 14 years
of age In any factory. Wc won't be
bluffed. In writing for Northern capital,
the representative of a cotton mill in Ala
bama recently wrote: We can get adult
male labor here for 00 cents' per hour.

IS NOT DISPLEASED
Pope Approves Negotiations
Carried on by Cardinals.
APPOINTMENT OF A DELEGATE
Mfrr. Sbnrcttl, JToiv nt "Washington,
' May Get the OfO.ce If He Is Not
.Appointed Archbishop of
Manila. .
ROME, July 19. The dispatch from
Rome, published in the Daily Chronicle
of London today, assorting that the pope
is intensely displeased at the way in
which the commission of cardinals has
conducted the negotiations with Judge
Taft in the matter of the friars' lands in
the Philippines, and that he has annulled
the proceedure of the commission and
summarily dissolved it, expressing the
view hat the American demands were
reasonable and signifying his readiness to
treat with Judge Taft personally. Is
based on an entire misunderstanding of
the situation. The commission of cardin
als was not summarily dissolved. Its work
ended with the acceptance of Cardinal
Rampolla's proposition to refer further
discussion of the negotiations to Manila.
As all the parties agreed to this, it Is
absurd to say that the pope is desirous
of personally treating with Judge Taft.
On the contrary, the pope has expressed
the highest satisfaction with the result of
the negotiations. He said: "Having start
ed direct relations with Washington. Is
one of the happiest events of my pontifi
cate." Interest in the Philippine question now
centers in the appointment of an apos
tolic delegate to Manila, as It is con
sidered the selection will be an indication
of the real intentions of the holy see. Gov
ernor Taft has unofficially intimated to
the Vatican that the appointment of an
American prelate would be preferred,
and mentioned the name of the Rt. Rev.
George Montgomery, bishop of the diocese
of Monterey and Los Angeles. It Is
thought to be Impossible to select Bishop
Thomas O'Gorman, of Sioux Falls, S. D.,
because of his participation in the nego
tiations here. Doubt, however, is ex
pressed about the Vatican appointing an
American, as the opinion is expressed In
pontifical circles that an entirely Inde
pendent delegate Is required properly to
deal with the questions at Issue.
ARCHBJSHOP OF MANILA.
Msrr. Sbnrcttl May Condnct Friar
Lands Negotiation.
WASHINGTON, July 19. No matter
how the negotiations at Rome end, even
In the unlikely event that at the last mo
ment the Vatican officials should accept
the principal proposition advanced by
PROMINENT MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS AS CAUGHT BY
Governor Taft, It is believed here that It
will still be necessary r tfae apostolic
delegate referred to In - Cardinal Ram
polla's notes to go forward .to Manila in
the capacity of an appraiser of the friars'
properties.
Mgr. Broderick, private secretary to
Mgr. Sbaretti, called at the War De
partment today and had a conference with
Secretary Root, the substance of which
has not been made public Mgr. Brod
erick's principal, Mgr. Sbaretti has not
been in Washington for many weeks. -He
started from Rome preceded by a declara
tion that he had been named as archbishop
at Manila, but when he reached Washing
ton on his way to the Orient he was de
.talned at the Catholic legation here. It
was the original understanding that in
his capacity of archbishop of Manila, if
he was appointed to that post, he was to
negotiate directly with Governor Taft re
specting church matters in the Philip
pines, including the friar lands question.
The outcome at Rome, taken in connec
tion with Mgr. Broderick's call, has led
to the belief that Mgr. Sbaretti Is after
all to be archbishop of Manila. At any
rate, it is understood that he Is to con
tinue his Journey to the Philippines, and
if he does not fill the post mentioned, he
may be still named as apostolic delegate
there.
Status of the Filipino.
WASHINGTON, July 19. Gradually the
status of the Filipino in his relations to
foreign countries is being established. The
State Department has finally decided how
It shall take care of Filipinos outside of
the archipelago. Ambassador White has
established a precedent in the case of Ed
ward Fancixo, a native of Manila, a rec
ord of which has Just reached the State
Department. This man applied to the
Ambassador in Berlin, July 2, for a pass
port or protection papers. The Ambas
sador's certificate says :
"Satisfactory proof has been furnished
me that Edward Fancixo is a native of
the Phlllplnes and loyal to the United
States. He is entitled to protection of the
Consular and diplomatic officers of tho
"United States. As he is not a citizen of
the United States, however, he is not en
titled to a passport."
Transport Sheridan Arrives.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 19. Tho United
States transport Sheridan arrived this
morning from Manila with 612 men of the
Thirteenth Infantry, 154 men of the Third
Cavalry, E&4 casuals and 76 sick. The
cavalry will Join the headquarters of their

and the Thirteenth Infantry will be as
signed to duty at Angel Island and Al
catraz. Colonel Stephen W. Grosbeok,
Judge-Advocate, Is a passenger on the

be Judge-Advocate of the Department of
the Lakes. .
Philippine Custom Revenues.
WASHINGTON1, July 19. The Bureau
of Insular Affairs of the War Department
has lroued a comparative statement show

pine Archipelago for the first four months
of 1902, compared with tho same period

TWO WEEKS' RESPITE.
Quebec Judge Takes Gnrnor-Grcene
Case Under Advisement.
QUEBEC, July 19. Colonel Gaynor and
Captain Greene, the two American con
tractors, who are wanted In Savannah,
Ga., for alleged frauds in Government har
bor work, were given another respite of
two weeks by Judge Caron in the Superior
Court today. Judge Caron heard argu
ments by counsel for the United States
Government and for the prisoners on writs

ties. Should the writs be vdcated, the
extradition proceedings will be heard on
their merits In Quebec.

MAJOR-GEXERAL JOHX R. BROOKE. .
WASHINGTON, July- 10. A general order has been prepared at the War
Department retiring Major-General John Brooke, who will reach the aso limit of
C4 yean". Monday, July 21. "With the exception of General Miles. General Brooke
Is the only officer on the active list of the Army who reached the grade of
Brigadier-General during the Civil War. Ho had a distinguished record during
the Civil War, entering as a volunteer Captain. Ho was made a Lieutenant
Colonel In the regular Army at the time of the reorganization In 1806. and has
been advanced In regular order to Major-General. Efforts were made by his
friends In the last sesston of Congress to have a bill passed allowing him to retire
with the rank of Lieutenant-General, but tho bill failed.
General Brooke became a Major-General a year before tho war with Spain.
When hostilities began he was ordered to command the large rendezvous camp at
Chlckamauga. He went on the expedition to Porto Rico, and after the peace
protocol, he was made chairman of the evacuation commission in Cuba. He wa3
then designated Governor-General of Cuba, holding the position until relieved by
General Wood. Since that time. General Brooke has been In command of the
Department of the East, with headquarters at Governor's Island.
rising rapidly. Tho flood Is reaching far
outlying firms, and farmers In the low
lands on the Missouri side have lost ev
erything but their citadels on high knolls
and a few fields behind the highest levees.
Damage is caused on the Illinois side be
tween here and Qulncy, where there are
many thousands of acres behind riverside
levees which are not entirely efficient, the
water working through at the side of the
flood gates. The Lima and Hunt levees,
opposite Canton, Mo., the most dangerous
places, and which protect many square
miles of corn In Illinois, are being con
stantly patrolled, and 'hopes are enter
tained that they miy possibly hold.
The greatest damage Is on the Missouri
side of tho Mississippi River, between
Keokuk and Hannibal, territory covering
300 square miles, and on which the corn
was estimated at SO bushels to the acre a
few diys ago. Hundreds of farmers are
tenants who lost crops by last year's
drouth In the uplands and moved to the
lowlands this year. They are now penni
less and hunting work In towns and cit
ies. Reports today are that In the terri
tory indicated the loss will be over JI.00O,
000, chiefly to corn. In splendid contrition
previously.
The damage done up the Mississippi
River Is greater than expected or than at
first reported. One township In this coun-
AN OREGONIAN ARTIST AT
ty. Green Bay, is under six or seven feet 1
of water. It contains over 11,000 acres of
crops." The families were driven out hur
riedly, and some cattle drowned. The
corn there was the very finest In- this
section of the country last week. The
levee eight miles north of Burlington
broke. Inundating three square miles that
had been considered safe.
The Skunk River, the most destructive
tributary of the Mississippi, is roaring
down with a flood exceeded but twice in
the history of the state, in 1S51 and 1S82.
The water topped the record of 1S92 and
has touched the highest record of 1S61.
This river rises in the center of Iowa and
empties into the Mississippi 23 miles north
of Keokuk, greatly Increasing the flood
at points below.
Railroads in Iowa will bo put to great
cost in tho maintenance of tracks and
safety of trains. The Burlington and
Rock Island systems are closely patrolled
by watchmen at all bridges and culverts.
No great damage has occurred to them
on account of the systematic prevention,
but this has been done at great cost. The
Supervisors of Lee, Des Moines, Washing
ton, Henry, Jefferson. Wapello and Van
Buren Counties have been at work trying
to save wagon road bridges, many of
which have already gone out. Losses
from this cause will bo very-considerable.

small grain caught in the fields. The
crop In other "places Is chiefly corn.
A new element that has appeared all
over the flood section of Iowa is disease
among the stock from the condition of the
pastures overflowed slightly before and
used after the temporary subsidence of
the waters.

RANGER VITNESSES THE SIGHT
Xnsnrsrcnts Apparently Were About
to Attack the City "When the Gov
ernment Sent Its Fleet Out
to Meet Them.
PANAMA, Colombia, July 19. The insur
gent gunboats Padilla and Darlen ap
peared last night between Flemonlco and
Ottlquo Islands. Governor Salazar there
upon ordered the government gunboats
Chuchuito and Clapet to put to sea and
meet them. Heavy cannonading was
heard at 10 A. M., and continued until 4
o'clock this afternoon. It was heaviest at
10 this morning. At 2 o'clock, the Darlen
was seen In tow of the Padilla, and it is
believed that she had been hit. The gov
ernment fleet was handicapped by the
absence of tho gunboat Boyaca, the keet
of which was being repaired, and it 13
thought probable that this fact was
known by the insurgent General Herrera,
who decided to attack Panama In order
to prevent the government from helping
General Bertlfl" troops at Agua Dulce.
The United States steamer Ranger,
which arrived here from Chlriqui, came
within tho line of fire. During a part of,
the heavy firing she was back of Flam
enco Island.
A representative of the Associated Press
was informed by United States Consul
Gudger that American interests at Pana
ma had not been materially interfered
with.
The government gunboat Boyaca, which
Is at La Boca, hurriedly completed repairs
and Is going out at 5 o'clock. The Padilla
has gone. The Ranger left the buy after
the Padilla started, taking the same
course as the revolutionary gunboat. No
explanation is offered for the movement.
It is thought probable that a great
battle Is being fought at Agua Dulce.
Whatever the result of this shall be to
General Herrcra's army. General Salazar,
the Governor of Panama, said to the rep
resentative of the Associated Press, the
revolutionary forces will suffer terrlbly
and an attack by them upon Panama will
be rendered impossible, even If they are
not defeated. General Salazar haa blind
confidence in his troops.
