A Atlanta. Nov. , 17 The American federation of Labor, inannual conven tion here,, decided to urge" Congress to pass a workman's compensation law,' giving a minimum of five years' wages to employes killed in services. - -' ... A resolution, which is believed cer tain of adoption, will nrge the passage of the La Follette bill, which would give free speech to Government clerks. The measure would abrogate the Exe-i cutive order issued by Roosevelt and maintained by f aft which prohibits the employes of the Government from tak ing part in any effort for legislation without the specific perm'ssion of the heads of their department,- The United Mine Workers introduced a resolution condemning the National Civic. Federation and requesting all members of the American Federation . of Labor sever their connection jvith the Civic Federation. This,' it is ex- pected, will precipitate a fight and may result in an effort to prevent the re election of President Gompera, r " . -. In a recent statement Gompera said that hsi believed his 'connection with the Civic Ftidera'ion was of great value to him and that be would not sever it. Be is strongly of the opinion that it is in the Interest of labor to maintain the present relations. The United Miners have attempted before to cause the re tirement of Gompera and the election of a younger rran, but so far they have found little support in their effort. : A resolution urging the granting of independence to Porto Rico was present ed by a delegation from the island. It will be considered later. Fraternal delegates . from England, Canada and Porto Rico were received. New Bern, Take Notice. Mr. Editor Please stop my ad at once.

Yet Struck by the Revolutionists -; Capture of the Entire Chi- ' v - nese Fleet : 1 r -.V . . . - Tokio, Nov. 17th. According to offi cial messages received by the Japanese Admiralty, the entire Chinese navy has surrendered to the revolutionists .and the Imperial Government is now with out a war vessel worthy of the . name. The haval surrender is regarded as the greatest blow that has been struck the Manchn dynasty, as it will place in the hands of the revolutionists power to sweep the great rivers of China snd to transport troops along the waterways without danger. ' ' The Japanese messages come from Chinkiang and declare that the surren der took place Wednesday when twelve cruisers and gunboats were formally turned over to the rebels at Chinkiang. Three were surrendered at Talyeb, one at Chofo and six othera in the lower Yangtze river. As the messages came from Japanese officers who have been detailed to watch the progress of the insurrection, they are regarded here as; authentic. . Tbe revolutionary governor of Chin kiang tendered a formal banquet to the 160 officers of the fleet who surrendered and who swore allegiance to the newly formed republic.

Led by Miss Chrls tabel Pankhurst, a big delegation of suffragettes in conference with Pre mier Asquith, Chancellor of the Ex chequer Lloyd-George, Foreign Secre tary Sir Edward Gray and First Lord of Admiralty Churchill concerning the inclusion of votes for women in the manhood suffrage bill the administra tion will shortly introduce in Parlia ment. It is significant of the suffragettes increasing influence in English politics that Premier Asquith, who has hitherto steadfastly refused to receive such dep utions, made a definite appointment ment with the present one for a confer ence at his official residence and asking the leading members of his ministry to be present at the conference. The suffrage bill the administration contemplate provides for the abolition of the existing British system of plural voting by large property owners and the establishment of just such a one-man-one-vote system as prevails in the United States. The women had already been offered the ballot on a property qualification and were willing to accept the proposi tion as an "entering wedge," as their leaders expressed it. Many Liberals, with Lloyd-Gtarge at their head, refused to sanction the plan, however, on the ground that it would increase the conservative vote. Lloyd George at any rate favors equal suff rage, but without the property qualifl cation. An attempt is now being made to reach a compromise between the conflicting factions. A strong cordon of police surrounds the Premier's residence as a precaution against a suffragette demonstration while the conference is in progress. FOR RENT.

New York, Nov. 18-Cotton has of fered a stubborn resistance to anything of a depressing character, Time after time, it has demonstrated a certain strength which has' defied bears and others. It might decline, but it speed ly rallied. The crop might be estimat ed as high as 16,000.000 bales, but far mers have refused to" sell freely. Many of them have been holding back their cotton altogether. Many believe that a big crop, even 15,000,000 to 16 000,000 bales, has been amply discounted in the big decline in prices since last Summer, It is pointed out, too, that a grown crop is one, thing, a commertial crop, or a crop actually sent to'market is another thing. The commercial crop may be much smaller than the one actually raised. The South, it ia added, has in the past shown its ability to hold back cotton and what has been msy be again. The exports are large. Large Bpot in terest have been big buyers of Decem ber and other near months. One of them in 48 hours, it is said, bought 100,000 bales of January. The revision of differences here on Wednesday is construed by some as bullish. Some half dozen well known Liverpool houses at one time bearish, are now bullish in their conviction. The1 National Gin ners' figures up to November 13th, were 11,478,000 bales as against expec tations of 150,000 to 200,000 bales more than this. Liverpool houses have been buying here. So to some extent have American spinners. Hears have,' as a rule, be come mora cautious. Many of them have covered and have been watching a market that somehow refused to go down. Yet there a e still bears. They point to the Chinese news as portend ing poor trade in China to the report that China is cancelling large orders in Lancashire where some of the mills are it is said, shutting down on that ac count and to the fact that at best there is no very decided improvement in trade in this county where the taking by Northern spinners at least continue to run considerable behind those of last year. They think that 1 holding back cotton at the South will in the end prove a boomerang. The into-sight movement is large. StockB at the ports are liberal and they are piling up at the interior towns. Here at New York the market has gotten into a fort of dead lock. Farmers will not sell freely, nor ill spinners and others, as a rule, buy except cautiously. Ellisons says that mills in Lancashire are reported to be stopping owing to the war in China. Spot markets are q'liet. The weather of late has been generally favorable, though it new threatens to become-very cold in tne western belt.' The South still, aa a rule, holds firmly around nine cents and the whole maiket has got in to a rut. What is to extricate it re mains to be seen. Prices are somewhat lower for the week, but beard have won no Ruccesnea to boast of, For that matter, neither have the' bulls. The East Indian crop is estimated by Ralll at 4,400,000 bales, or 500,000 bales leas than last year, The weekly statistics were bullish but fell flat in a very dull market.

New York, November 20-Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh has made ' the startling accusation that there is not an honest line of importations com-, ing into this country. The effect of the statemet coming from the head of the Treasury Depart ment creates a sensation among the appraisers, several of whom accepted the remarks of Mr. MacVeagh as adi- rect charge of incompetency or dishon- . esty, and are said to be talking of re sign ing. "The Treasury Department has been searching in vain to find a single line of merchandise that is free from tbe : taint of fraud." said the secretary. . "Thin pnrulitmn must. hA remedied and the responsibility rests with you .ap praisers," ' "No matter who the importer may be every invoice of goods coming into this country must be examined with extra ordinary scrutiny. There must be no exceptions. "Thn Department of Customs has been under investigation for many months, and many improvements have been inaugurated, but the frauds have not been stopped. I repeat, there is not a line of merchandise being import ed that is not in some way tainted." 1 he officials of the customs service at largd are believed to have been as sembled here for the express purpose of receiving the warning that Secretary MacVeagh gave them. Secretary MacVeagh also announced that he was heartily in accord with the efforts of United States Attorney Wise to get jail sentences for nil smugglers. Keferring to criticism made by Mr. Wise on the light sentences imposed on rich smugglers by the Federal judges in New York, he said, through Assist ant Sectretary of the Treasury James P. Curtis; "My attention has born called to the criticism caused by light sentences of i i : . : .... t .

"The statement ia wholly without foundation. The Treasury Department is in accord with United States Attor ney Wise, and if the cases referred to anonymously are those against the Du veen Brothers, it is proper to say that the receipt of $1,180,090 by the Treas ury Department from this firm in set tlement of their civil liabilities waa made upon the express understanding that the criminal prosecution would pro ceed. There was no suggestion that leniency wan to be shown because of the receipt of the money in settlement of the civil cases." Attorney General Wickersham waa attacked before the Senate Committee on Inter-State Commerce for not en forcing the criminal provisions of the Shermen law. ... i a - Death of W. D. Brown. Sheriff J.
