Qomper president of the American
Federation of Labor defended his
organisation and its executive council
In a speech today before the conven
tlon of the American Federation of
Miners of a speech made by Charles
II. Moyer president of the Western
Federation of Miners and Duncan
McDonald before the convention.
Mr. Qompera asserted it would be
impossible to levy an assessment for
the copper mine strikers of Michigan
and denied that the organisation is
"reactionary fossilised worm-eaten
and dead." and that the executive
council 1 made up of "boose fighters."
After Mr. Oompera had concluded
McDonald announced he would speak
to the convention In the morning and
asked the federation president If he
would be In this etty. -He said he
would remain here as long as he pos-
slbly could and still keep an engage-
ment in New York City at 1 o'clock
in the afternoon. Mr. Moyer said he
would also speak tomorrow morning
(lumpers Answers Charges.
Frank J. Hayes vice-president in-
troduced Mr. Oompera and expla :..-d
that he appeared before the conven-
tion to answer the charge against the
federation and its executive council.
"Taking the newspaper reports as
a criterion Mr. Oompera eaid "the
attacks on the federation and its offi
cers Is the most important work dona
by this convention. I don't know if
the charges in the newagaper are
true but It are. primed MiAaqMa

"Only McDonald answers" Mr
Gorapers continued. "Of the eleven
men who compose the executive couti
cil eight are tee-totalera who never
touch a drop of lluor. Two of the
men are as moderate drinkers a any
men who ever take a drink. For my
self 1 take a glass of buer when Hi
day's work is done. I challenge any
man to prove otherwise than that 1
am as good a man mentally and
physically as I ever was and
reached my sixty-fourth year last
Mr. Qompera denied that the feder-
ation had placed obataclea in the path
of unionised Industrialism but on the
other hand he said had encouraged
It wherever possible and had urged
the amalgamation of trades.
"The American Federation cannot
say 'yes you must amalgamate'
said. "It Is an outrage to lay the
failure of Industrial unionism to the
federation. The men and women In
the labor movement are human being
and cannot be molded In an instant
to suit the desires of any one. They
muat be made to see the advantage
of .the movement first."
The speaker referred to the Roches-
ter convention of the federation and
resented that he was charged with
being a "scab at heart" which he
said had been made by McDonald.
"By God that la more than a human
can be expected to stand!" Mr. Qom
pera shouted. He said he had passe 1
over many Insults but thl ons could
not b overlooked. He said McDonuld
denied In the convention that he had
made the statement and that was suf-
ficient. Moyer Correctly Reported.
Mr. Moyer said his speech had been

Qomper who then turned to the
charge that the executive board had

Mr. Moyer say it coats about
$10000 a week. The federation could
laise only 1(0000 in six mouth if
every organisation were to pay. Th.U
would run the clrlker only three
weeks and the organisations have only
