Effort to Secure Endorsement
of Irish Independence
St. Paul, Minn., June 20. Samuel
Gonipers was re-elected president of
the American 'Federation of Labor to-
The election' of Gompers was by ac
clamation. He was unopposed.
James Duncan, Springfield, Mass.,
was e-eloeted first viee president and
J. P. Valentine, Cincinnati, Ohio, was
elected second vice president. They
had no opposition.
The federation today adopted a. res
olution favoring home rule for Ire
land. An effort to endorse Irish inde
pendence was defeated.
Timothy Healy, of tho lirotherhooa
f Stationary Firemen, and Michael
Euan, of the Pennsylvania Federation
of Labor, were joint authors of the
home rule resolution. Debate continued
for an hohr.
President Gompers turned off the
oratory, scoring"iprofessional Irishmen
"Tho Irish in Ireland, not the Irish
in the federation, will have to (kcido
their own fate," said Gompers.
Kesolutions asking that Samuel
Gompers and other representatives of
the federation- bo maintained perma
nently in England, France and Italy
until the war is won, were passed by
the federation. A special plea that
Gompers visit Italy to show Italian la
bor that American labor is in sympa
thy with their cause was made by Ital
The federation went on record de
claring that any kind of a world peace
now is futile.
The condition of RussSa was used to
illustrate this position.
The federation reiterated its support
of President Wilson and said that

pastor of Calvary Episcopal

He didn't have to go to war,
but he's still young, and he
found a passage in the Book
about "putting on the armor of

in the present instance, an avia-

WHY PARIS SELLS MORE YOUNG MEN'S SHOES THAN ANY
OTHER STORE IN SALEM
Because we give them style, fit and best of all wearing
qualities. Keith Konquerer Shoes can not be duplicated
in quality even by paying $1.00 more than we are asking.
We also carry a few women's shoes of this make that we
guarantee will outwear any shoe on the market at any
price. All our women's shoes are made by the unlocked
A last that fits 90So better than other shoes.
About Our Army Siloes We sell more Buckingham and
Hecht Shoes than all stores combinedWhy? Because
they are better quality and we don't hold you upwe sell
them $1.00 less than other stores. Don't take our word,
but ask any one wearing Buckingham & Hecht Army

They also call them by a word meaning

Machinegun companies are especially
noted for their devotion to the kaiser

they are called the "Murderer's Club"

Field, June 19. (Night) The ele
ment are aiding the Italians.
Heavy rains in the mountain regions
have changed the Piave from a slug
gish stream to a rushing flood, de
stroying bridges aind cutting off Aus
trian forces on this aide of the river
from their source of supply and rein
forcements. British airmen report that twelve of
the fourteen bidges flung acoBS the
Piave by tho enemy have been caried
awuy. Trapped on the west bank, Aus
trian detachments are subjected to al
most constant mauling by the Italian
artillery and bombs dropped by allied
airmen, with no avenue of escape.
The Austrians thus caged in have
an advantage in defensive positions
and are yet too well supplied with am
munition to warrant a frontal assault.
There is every possibility, however,
that exhaustion of their ammunition
and food supplies, together with the
pounding they are undergoing, will
eventually force them to lay down
their arms or sacrifice themselves in
desperate esaults on tho Italian lines.
Frantic efforts to restore the pon
toons so far have been frustated by
the swollen current and the accuracy
of the Italian artillery.
The enemy's losses on all parts of
the front in the first three days of the
offensive are now estimated at 150,000
The heaviest fighting is still around
the bridgehead the Austrians have es
tablished on the lower Piave from
where they are trying to push west-
wad toward Venice. The enemy now
holds the west bank of the river from
Mascrada to Fossalta and San Dona
Di Piave, a front of 18 kilometers
Austrian artillery is pouring thous
ands of poison, tear, emetic and mus
tard gas shells into the rear areas.
Schio, Bassano, Asolo and Treviso have
thus been rendered practically unin
habitable. A number of the wounded display
ghastly wounds, in support of the
claim that the enemy is using explos
ive bullets. ,

For clearing the skin and making it
