IS—Subjecting his guests, who were representatives of the leading labor organizations of this country to a rapid fire of questions, President Roosevelt last night at dinner given by him at the Ti\Tilte hou^e, endeavored to find out what labor wants from Congress and In what way he could be of assistance to the tollers of tbe country. Uliile tha president did not commit blms'elf to anj* of the propositions submitted by the various labor leaders present it was learned that he sought a full expression of sentiment from all of them. Labors attitude on various Questions was reiterated, it is said., and the president listened Interestedly to each argument presented. No set speeches were made, the president merely rising and explaining to his guests, after the last course had been sfcrved, that lie had brought them together for an interchange of views of public questions. Seated! at tbe center of the long table ia the state dining room, which was beautifully decorated with roses, the president talked inforuially with cabinet officers, members of the t'uu ud States Supreme court and labor leadere. Nor was the presidepi alone In his questioning. He was ably assisted by hlb lieutenants—Justice Moody, Secretary Straus and Secretary Garfield frequently asking questlous as to some of the plans of labor. The gen e:ul Impressioh prevailing among the labor leaders after the dinner, is that the prculdcut's mesfiagc to congress will sbcw some of the flavor of the eoiifereuco.
