Portland, Or. With an unprecedent
ed display of harmony and unanimity
of purpose, the 500 delegates repr
senting tho American Federation of
Labor opened the 43d annual conven
tion of the organization at the munici
pal auditorium Monday.
Form and ceremony marked the
formal opening of labor's two weeks
of deliberation and work. Addresses

ernor Pierce, G. A. Von Schrlitz and
Otto llartwig. An invocation was
given by liishop Walter Taylor Sum

The morning session of the conven
tion, beginning at 10 o'clock and last
ing until well after noon, was taken
up almost exclusively with formali
ties. A short part of the morning
session and practically the entire
afternoon session were devoted to or
ganization and routine work. The most
important feature of the day was the
release for the public of the annual
report of the executive council of the
federation. The appointment of com
mittees, the seating of delegates, the
many routine acts connected with the
opening of a convention of such magni
tude occupied tho rest of the day.
While the formalities connected
willi the opening of the morning ses
sion were principally courtesies and
welcomes from various persons to the
visiting delegates, remarks made by
Governor Pierce and answered by Mr.
Gompers showed a new political trend.
The governor, introduced as a plain
dirt farmer, complained of the in
equality of a system that gives the
farmer but $1 out of the $3 which the
producer pays for agricultural pro
ducts. This remark was greeted with
continuous applause. Fifteen minutes
later Mr. Gompers declared that the
day is at hand when the farmer and
the industrial workingman will unite
against a common enemy, the profi
teer. The honor of opening the conven
tion went to G. A. Von Schrlitz, presi
dent of the Portland Central Labor

Dusseldorf. It was variously esti
mated that from 10 to 15 person were
killed and that between 200 and 300,
many of them women and children,
were injured during the disorders at
the separatist demonstration Sunday.
The trouble began at 4 o'clock in
the afternoon when 40,000 persons, in
cluding 15,000 manifestants, had as
sembled in the square. The panic-
stricken crowd fled for safety imme
diately the shooting began, trampling
women and children. So rapid was the
flight that in 30 minutes Hindenburg
strasse was deserted.
The firing originated from tho
houses overlooking the square, but
rapidly degenerated into a general
shooting affray, in which the police,
communists and separatists took part.
The great separatist demonstration
here terminated in a veritable massa
cre. A score of persons were known
to have been killed and the wounded
were believed to be numbered in the
hundreds. Dusseldorf was still seeth
ing with excitement and more trouble
was feared tonight.
The French occupation authorities
held the German military police the
security police responsible for the
outbreak, declaring that they started
the shooting, in which the communist
groups later joined. The hospitals and
police barracks were filled with
wounded, and French military doctors
were rendering all possible assistance.
The French authorities sent out pa
trols to round up alP the security po
lice they could find in the streets
nnd place under arrest all those still
held in reserve at headquarters.
The city awoke early, teeming with
excitement; thousands were abroad in
spite of an appeal addressed to the
population to remain indoors. But
Streetcars, automobiles and other ve
hicles were absent from tho streets
and the hotels and stores had all low
ered their iron and steel gratings.
About 11 o'clock the first of the 25
trains bearing the manifestants to
Dusseldorf arrived and was received
by a company of Khineland public
militia, which had just sworn alle
giance to the green, white and red
Soon after noon all the manifestants
from points in the "Rhlneland repub
lic" had reached the city and a pro
cession formed and marched behind
innumerable green, white and red re
public emblems to Hindenburgstrasso

Statues of William I. Bismark and Von
Standing directly under the statue
of William 1, the separatist leader,
Joseph Mat thes, began speaking.
"The separatists," he declared, "aro
animated by hatred toward none, but
only desire peace, security and tran
quility." Suddenly, without warning, several
shots wore fired, from behind a low
ered steel curtain protecting the plate
i:lass entrance to a store. In the panic
that ensued a small group made a
concentrated rush for the speaker.
The security police fired a fusilade
and tho shooting became general, the
police being especially active in
smashing their way through the
crowds and taking prisoner many who
were transferred to headquarters.
French military forces were rushed
to the scene and ordered the green
Police to cease using their revolvers
but. according to the Preach, the po
lice refused and continued to fire. The
cavalry seized many of tho police and
surrounded their barracks quelling the
disturbance in a few minutes.
THE RABBIT STORY
JVTRS. RABBIT was having a both-"-
ersome time with her children.
It was time for them to be asleep and
here they were wide awake. "If you
do not close your eyes and go to
sleep you will not be up with the sun
for a run In the woods before Mr.
Dog Is out," she told them, tucking
them in once more.
"It will be clear by morning," said
Mrs. Rabbit. "I am certain Mr.
Moon-man will clear away the clouds
just as he did for Miss Twilight in
"Oh, tell us about It, Mother, do,"
cried all the little bunnies, "and then
we will go right to sleep, we promise
Mrs. Rabbit sat down beside the
bed and all the little bunnies kept as
still as well, as still as little rabbits
nnd their mother began the story.
Once upon a time up where the
Sky-folks live Mr. Moon-man one
night heard a sound of weeping, so
"Oh, Tell Us About It, Mother, Do."
he peeked behind a cloud and there
he saw pretty little Miss Twilight all
curled up in her purple-pink robes
crying very hard.
"What is the matter?" asked Mr.
Moon-man .kindly. "Have you lost
Little Miss Twilight lifted her
pretty face. "Oh, no, Father Moon, it
isn't that," she said, showing him a
basket filled with candles, "I have all
of the candles here ready to place In
the blue sky.
"But every night now for a week
so soon as I place the stars I mean
the candles all lighted In their places
along come those bad little Rainclouds
and put them out.
"I know that all the earth children
think I have forgotten to do my work
and perhaps they will look for the
lights to be placed In the sky again.
Oh, dear, I am unhappy."
"Well, well, dry your eyes, Twi
light," said Mr. Moon-man. "We will
see what can be done about those
mischievous Rainclouds. I am rather
tired of having them in my way, too.
Now you run along home and get your
candles lighted, and if I am not very
much mistaken you will be able soon
to place the candles In the sky, though
It Is too late for the earth children to
watch you at your work."
Mr. Moon-man went sailing along
the sky and every Raincloud that he
met went scudding away. For they
knew Mr. Moon-man would cull on old
Wind Witch for help and she would
come with her broom and sweep them
all away if they did not run; and she
wasn't very careful where she swept
them, once she started clearing the
So off they ran to their home on
the top of a high mountain and went
to sleep, leaving the sky clear for Mr.
Moon-man to shine in.
Pretty soon along came Miss Twi
light, though of course she had
changed her gown now, and no one
could see her as she took the can
dles from the basket on her arm and
tucked them in the deep blue sky until
every star, as we call the candles down
here on earth, was twinkling In its
"Thank you, dear Father Moon,"
said Miss Twilight as she tripped away
nnd Mr. Moon-man promised her that
the next night when she lighted the
candles she could wear her beautiful
Twilight robes, and let them trail
along the earth below as she ran.
And that was the way Mr. Moon
man sent the rain clouds scudding
home once upon n time, and If you are
good little bunnies and go to sleep I
am sure he will do the same thing to
night and in the morning you will find
the sun Is shining.
But all the little bunnies were fast
asleep nnd Mrs. Rabbit tiptoed out of
the room and closed the door behind

THE HAND OF AN ARTIST
TF THE person whose hand Is under
examination is to win great dis
tinction In some field of artistic en
deavor, and also, perhaps, riches in
such life work, inspect carefully the
mount of Apollo, at the base of the
third or ring finger, for a star. If
there is a plainly marked star there,
it is a very favorable sign. Some au
thorities on chiromancy hold that the
same distinction is conferred by a
star on the mount of Jupiter, at the
base of the index finger.
When the line of the head, the lower
of the two main lines crossing the
pnlm horizontally, ends In a very de
cided droop, it is a mark of the great
Imaginative power that is so neces
