parts of the country, referred to the ac
eptca of fraternal delegates lo European
r labor assemblies and welcomed tboae pres
ent from Europe, Canada and Porto Rico;
aid that the Canadian Trades and Labor
congress was In Una with the federation.
'Ha referred at length to the experience of
tha federation organiser In Porto Rico and
' aald that the lawa under which he bad
been arrested had been repealed. Several
unions formed by the organiser have been
chartered by American national and Inter
national bodies, but the Carpenters' union
haa refused to Issue such charters and Mr.
Oompers asked for action In the matter
by toe present convention.
In regard to the matter known as "trade
autonomy" and the "Jurisdiction problem"
Mr. Oom pera aald In part:
Berond doubt the greatest problem, the
danger which above all others threatena
not only the euccess, but the very exist
ence of the federation. Is the question of
Jurisdiction. I believe that unlene our af
filiated national and International unions
radically and noon change their course we
hall at no distant day be In the midst
of an Internecine contest unparalleled In
any era of the Industrlnl world. There Is
ararcely an afllllated organisation which Is
not engaged In dispute with another orga
nisation upon the question of Jurisdiction.
In many instances employer fairly In
clined toward organised labor have been
mado to surfer from causes entirely beyond
their control, and other employers, taking
udvantage of the trouhle have refused to
recognise either organization.
The president said that aomo of the min
er had threatened to withdraw from the
federation If they were not auatalned. He
urged that action be taken to check Indis
criminate attempt of unions to extend
Jurisdiction without the consent of organi
sations already In existenca, and that in
case of attempt! to secure decisions of offi
cer by coreclon tha officers be prohibited
from proceeding In the matter and that the
'.hreatenlng union be suspended until It has
withdrawn Ita threat.

Nearly 1,000 organizers are In the field

part of the time. The expense of organiz
ing unions during the year has been $36,

Mr. Oompers discussed legislation af
fecting labor, referring to the eight-hour
bill, which he said should be placed in the
hands of a special committee; the antl
injunctlon bill, which ho said should be
passed in the form In which It passed the
house, without the pending senate amend
ment; the convict labor bill, the Chinese
exclusion bill, eaylng that the present law
is defective and that tho question should
be reOpeaed by congress. He approved a
bill restricting immigration; denounced the
seaman's bill Introduced in tho house of
representatives by Mr. .Allen of Maine; ap
plauded the enactment of the bill to pro
tect musicians from the competition of mil
itary and naval bands, and said that billa
prohibiting child labor should be enacted
by the stales.
Referring to President Roosevelt and tbo
labor question, he quoted from the presi

CARACAS, Venezuela, Nov. IS The Offl
clal Gazette yesterday published a presi

j were short of ammunition, attacked them
at midnight in their last stronghold, near
Pan Mateo, precipitating the retreat which
the revolutionary leaders had planned for
the same morning.

abouts of General Matos, loader of Ihe
revolution, la that he was recently near
Nlrgua, two days' march from Barqulaa
raento, or three days from Tucacat, on tho
Atlantic, the only two places from which

This does not mean that the eecretary di
