News of E. H. Harrlman's condition
which developed over Sunday made hif
prospects appear so favorable that the
over-extended short account in the stock

Tha stock market became quieter during
the midday hour, as has been the case for

The whole market took its tone from the
Union Paoiflc movement, and the general

CLASH IN TRADES CONGRESS
Gompers'- Statement of Position of
Americans" Coldly Beceired.
SHARP W0BDS FB0JI AUSTRIAN
tlat..are It ts Tlsae for Western
Men to Reach Derision on
I nternntlonnl Move
ment. PARIS, Aug. SO. Samuel Gompers, presi
dent of the American Federation of Labor
was the dramatic center of the first day's
session of the sixth International Trades'
Union congress, when several European
delegates bitterly denounced what they
clamled to be the equivocal attitude of the
American Federation with reference to Join
ing the International movement. Mr.
Gompers needed all his old time energy to
repel the atUck. He Insisted that the
problems and policies of American trades
unionism were so Intermingled with Ameri
can traditions and Ideas that Americans
could ill spare the time to encounter the
Influence of European leaders where the
trades unionism tendencies were tempera
Nevertheless as an evidence that the
United States was anxious for International
co-operation, Mr. Gompers Introduced a
proposal favoring world wide organisation
which would "defend the right and Inter
ests of all and create International solid
arity." Gomnera Explains Position.
The clash came over the question of. the
exact status of Mr. Gompers and the Amer
ican Federation of Labor In the conference.
Mr. Gompers explained that for the pres
ent he was merely an auditor, but was
ready to give his opinions. He said It has
been the aspiration of the American work
men to come Into closer contact with the
labor movement In Europe, as they were
profoundly attached to the cause of solid
arity of labor. One obstacle In the Way
of affiliation, he said, was the feeling that
antagonism existed In Europe towards
American trades unlonl.'eVi. Moreover, It
was feared that the American wormen
might be compelled to subordinate their
policies to those of men knowing little or
nothing about American Industrial condi
tions and problems. v
"Personally," he continued. "I have no
authority to pledge the affiliation of the
American Federation of Labor, but I be
lieve It will come In time."
Statement Received Coldly.
. Mr. Gompers' statement was received
coldly. Several delegates Jumped to their
feet to protest. Hueber, an Austrian dele
gate, characterised Mr. Gompers' explana
tion as mockery. He, like the others, hid
been under the impression that the Ameri
cans meant business and that Mr. Gompers
was the official delegate from that coun
try. Otherwise he could not understand
how the American resolutions happened
to be printed In the official program.
"We thank you for your opinions," he
said pointedly, "but we do not need them.
Your policies may not permit you to come
to us, but one day, American workmen,
you will realise that your policies are er
roneous and you will see the necessity
of Joining the International Confedera
Gomperi Answers Hueber.
Mr. Qompers, stinging undej the rebuke,
but unflinching, arose to reply. "I re
gret," he exclaimed, "that you have mis
construed my remarks as an attempt upon
European trades unionism. I repeal, we
are sincerely desirous of international fed
eration, but only so far as it preserves the
American . conception of suntontsm. If
Europe does not want us it will be unfor
tunate. Nevertheless, we will continue to
do everything; possible to attain the goal
for what the human race is struggling
International Federation and unity."
Hueber retorted that It was now seven
years since the Americans began talking
about Joining the International confedera
tion and it was about time a decision was
reached. "It now appears," he concluded,
"that Mr. Gompers Is merely on a voyage
M. Legion, the International secretary,
ended the controversy with the statement
that Mr. Gompers was only a guest, but
he hoped that that official was convinced
that the moment had arrived for the
American Federation of Labor to Join
forces with their European brethren. The
regular business ' of the conference was
then resumed and resolutions Were adopted
In sympathy with the strikers In Sweden
and Barcelona and for an appeal to the
unionists of the world to strive for the
abolition of war. x
Comment of French Press.
Tha newspapers devote much space to the
International congress and the significance
of the presence of Mr. Gompers. The
Journal Des l)ebats points out that the
American Federation of Labor and the
French General federation of Labor,
which did not Join In the last two con
ferences, represent opposing conceptions of
trades unionism. Mr. Gompers, represent
ing the American sentiment. Is utterly op
posed to the building up of unionism on
a foundation of socialism, politics or open
revolution; Instead, his work lies in the
direction of developing the real Interests
of the workmen and solving the problem
of labor and capital.
