The CHAIRMAN. Yesterday Mír. Moffett came to me and stated that the American Federation of Labor, or its representatives, were in the city and desired a hearing, and I told him to extend to the members of the American Federation of Labor and its president an invitation to appear this morning before the committee, and they are here now in pursuance of that invitation. We will, of course, be glad to hear from them. The subject upon which they wish to be heard and upon which they will speak is that of legislation relating to injunctions. The chairman will direct that all measures relating to that subject now pending before the committee be inserted in the record at this point.
