Last week the editor of The Wage-
worker had the pleasure of attending
several sessions of the American Fed
eration of Labor convention at Minne
apolis, and of meeting personally sev
eral of the noted labor leaders of the
country Samuel Gompers, Frank
Morrison, John Mitchell, Charles Bold,
Congressman-elect Wilson, Timothy
Healey, E. Gerry Brown, and others
too numerous to mention.
The chief purpose of the editor's
visit was to extend to the Federation
an invitation to hold its 1907 meeting
in -Lincoln. By courtesy of . President
Gompers and the convention he was
given the floor just before the noon
adjournment . on Saturday, and pre
sented the claims of Lincoln. Tho
letters of invitation signed by Gov
ernor Mickey, Mayor Brown and Mr.
Bryan were loudly applauded, and by
direction of the president were ord
ered placed on the records of the con
vention. Had Lincoln been represent
ed at the beginning of the convention
by two or three good hustlers, backed
by the advantages offered, there is
little doubt that the convention could
have been launched. As it was, James
town, with the attraction of the ex
position, was on the ground from the
start and had secured the inside track
before any other city was mentioned.
The Lincoln delegate was given a
warm reception by the convention, and
was-assured that the claims of " this
city would be given careful considera
tion. If the Lincoln Commercial Club
had taken hold of the matter In the
right spirit when the matter was first
called to its attention, Lincoln would
bave been a sure winner. That was
generally conceded by the many dele
gates with whom the Lincoln repre
Right here, is just the proper place
to correct an erroneous report sent
out by the Associated Press from Min
neapolis last week. It was in effect
that the delegates to the American
Federation of Labor had by a vast
majority after a careful canvas, en
dorsed Theodore Roosevelt for presi
dent again in 190S.
There's nothing to it.
The editor of The Wageworker was
one of the delegates interviewed, and
his answer was about the same as
that of the other delegates. This is
the way it was done:
"I represent the Minneapolis Daily
Bladder, and we are taking a poll of
the delegates to ascertain how they
stand on the question of President
Roosevelt being a candidate for re
election in 1908. Would you care to
be qui ted on this matter?"
That is what the gentlemanly young
reporter would spring on the delegate.
and this is about what the reply would
"O, Roosevelt's all right, I guess.',
