In A. F.L to Seek
Irisli Recognition
Sympathizers in Federation
Prepare Resolutions Which
They Claim Will Be Passed
by Big Vote.
Denver, June 10. Immediate rec
ognition of the Irish republic, with
drawal of the British troops from
Ireland and the refund by Great
Britain of the $9,000,000,000 loaned
by the United States is demanded in
the resolution tentatively drafted by
Irish sympathizers to be submitted
to the convention of :he American
Federation of Labor here next week.
This resolution it was learned to
Aiv hat keen decided UDon at a
meeting of delegates with Irish sym
pathies. The committee tnat win
complete the document is headed by
Peter J. Brady of New York.
Much Support Pledged.
The Irish sympathies will ask
the federation to call upon President
Harding to immediately communi
cate a message to congress urging
recognition of the Irish republic and
formally protest against the alleged
"barbarious warfare" being carried
on by British troops in Ireland. Re
payment of the English loan is asked
on the ground that British govern
ment has failed to pay its interest
and was using the money available
for this purpose to maintain soldiers
to suppress Ireland and "other small
nations" and to carry out a great
naval expansion program.
"Approximately 95 per cent of the
delegates to the convention are Irish,
sympathizers," said Mr. Brady, who
asserted that support to the resolu
tion had been pledged by a larger
majority. , .
Elimination pf jurisdictional and
inte-union strikes was the main is
sue before the convention of the
building trades department of the
federation today. Resolutions were
presented endorsing the work of the
national board of jurisdictional
awards, which has been successful in
settling a large nuumbcr of jurisdic
tional disputes in the building trades
during the last year.
Will Enforce Decisions.
Should the convention endorse this
arbitrati6n body, labor leaders said,
the United Brotherhood of Car
penters and Joiners, which has de
fied a decision "of the board, will be
compelled to accept the award hand-
ea Qown ddiiisi . . '

this dispute the board decreed that
the sht metal workers were u
titled to do the installation of metal
frames and fixtures in buildings
William L. Hutch:son, president
Of the carpenters and joiners, ciaims
that his organization is entitled to
do this work and -will disregard the
- The position taken by the car
penters has been declared by John
Donlan. president of the building
trade department, a menace to the
successful operation of the national
board. He urged the convention to
take action V maintaining that tni
eliniination of inter-u-ion controver
sies was necessary to stablishing the
building industry.

cominf in and eoine out of this

ck?s of people. The class is not
made tip entirely of the male sex,
as there are a number of the fair
sex included. One peculiar in
stance occurred at' a residence lo
cated near the canning factory here.
While the man of the house was
working in his garden, two parties
dressed in overalls approached the
house and asked if they could use
the bath room for a few minutes.
They were granted the privilege.
They entered the bath room and it
was noticed that they were in the
same a considerable time. Finally
they came out. both neatly dressed
as women, and, after thanking the
man for -the accommodations, left in
the direction of the city. Later he
saw them return, going toward the
lower Jards, where they undoubt
edly again dorined men's clothing
and caught a freight train, continu
ing their journey.

Convicted Mail
Bandit Conducts
Search for Loot
Man Taken From Train ,En
Route to Prison to Look
For Missing
Sacramento, Cal., June 10. Roy
Gardner, mail bandit, sentenced to
25 years imprisonment at McNeils
island prison, was taken from the
train here today enroute from San
Francisco to the prison by federal
officials and led to a spot several
miles from the city to search for a
mail sack, said to contain between
$150,000 and $180,000 worth of bonds
stolen from a Southern Pacific mail
car here on the morning of May 19.
According to.Special Agent Barney
McShanc the loss of the bonds was
not discovered until several "days
after the car had been reported
Claims Double Cross.
McShane said Gardner told the
federal officers in San Francisco he
hid the sack containing the bonds
under a tree near this city tha night
before the robbery of another train
near Newcastle to which Gardner
subsequently confessed. Search
under the direction of Gardner failed
to reveal the bonds. The bandit
told the officers that he had been
"double crossed" and that some one
else had taken the sack.
A further search was made along
the banks of a nearby stream, but
that also was fruitless. Gardner
later was taken to a station near
here to be taken to McNeils island.
No information concerning the
ownership of the bonds was made
public here.
Planned to Flee.
Tli VianHft i a!H in have told
the officers that he had secreted the
bonds with the intention of secur
ing them after the Newcastle train
rohfery and leaving for Mexico.
The mail car from which the sack
was taken was attached to Southern
Tacific .train No. 10, on the morning
the affair occurred. As the train
entered, the city lirnits a signal was
given from the mail car to stop. The
brakeman running forward saw a
man leap off into the darkness and
escape. A hurried check was made
but according to the officers nothing
was missed at the time.
