' Bargain day, "when the wideawake

DRY ELEMENT DOWNED
AFTER BITTER CONTEST
Nearly All Big Organizations
' of Nation Allied Against
! Dry Measure
ATLANTIC CITY; N. . J; A reso-!
lution , expressing organized i labor's
disapproval ofl war-time prohibition
and.atrongly urging that 2 per
cent beer be exempt from the pro
visions of (the eighteenth amend
ment to the constitution and from
the war-time prohibition measure
which goes into effect Julyil, was
adopted today by the reconstruction
convention of the American Federa
tion of -Labor. A bitter fight was
waged on the proposal by dry ele
ments, especially by delegates from
Seattle, who based their arguments
on the benefits they said their city
had found through prohibition, but
was carried by an overwhelming
vote of 2.475 to 4.005. The voting
is proportional to the membership of
the unions represented. . '
The resolution will be sent to
President Wilson and congress, t
Nearly all the big labor organiza
tions of the country voted for the
resolution . The blacksmiths, spin
ners, stereotypers and delegates of
the Teachers Federation of America
all voted against it. The boilermak-
ers and Iron shipbuilders, the long
shoremen, and the typographical or
ganizations split their voteJ Aside
from Seattle, Chicago was the, only
one of the big city labor organisa
tions that voted "no." i
In the list of state federations
Florida, Missouri. Kansas and Vir
ginia voted, against it. The ; railway
clerks delegation refused to vote at
all, giving no reason, while the dele
gation from the Illinois state federa
tion of labor : declined to vote be
cause they announced their organ!
ration had taken no stand on the
matter, l ; . s . .
Immediately! after the passage of
the resolution , another was. offered
providing that the convention should
suspend Its session Saturday in order
that the delegates might go ,to
Washington on a special train to
participate jn the great demonstra
tion to be held in front of the capitol
there as a.protest against war-time
prohibition. This resolution was
adopted . almost unanimously, the
delegation from, Seattle being the
only one to vote against it. i
