The majority of St. haul's boss bak ers have signed the new contract, pro viding a nine-hour night shift. The Canadian Northern has signed the schedule asked by the blacksmiths, molders and pattern makers. In Haverhill, Mass., it required six guards to keep four strikebreakers at work in a shoe factory recently. The 15 business agents of the unions in Spokane will hereafter have an auto at their disposal. It saves time. One of the first acts of the new so cialist council of Milwaukee was to order that all city printing should bear the union label. . T. L. Lewis, president of "the United Mine Workers, has issued a statement in which he declares that the men have ' $5,000,000 for a strike fund. The Bakers of Denver won their strike very quickly after putting solici tors and delivery wagons in the field to secure orders for labeled bread. Three hundred girl shoemakers in Cleveland struck when they found that a. time clock had' been installed. They were out five minutes; now the clock is out. Rochester lathers demand an in crease of from $3.40 to $3.75 for day work; from $2.50 to $2.72 per-1,000 for hard laths, and $2.25 per 1,000 for or dinary piece work. Upon being asked his religion in a blank application for a job, a man in . New York wrote the sign of the dol lar. This frank admission obtained him the position. English wprkmen have ' discovered that the way to secure contracts for public buildings with - the union labor clause is to elect union men to the offices having the final disposition of contracts. Members of the Stcamfitters' nnon at Minneapolis, Minn., want an in crease of 50 cents a day. The change to the higher rate will be effective July . 1. Workmen are t;ot.- paid at the rate . of $4 for eight , hours. -.. In Australia a Seamen's Compensa tion Act is in fores, which provides liability on the vtrt of employers, re gardless of neglitcereo on the part of the injured, and gi vci damages tor nearly every, kind of injury. According to a decifon by the board of park commissioner.-', all band con certs in Milwaukee paiks this summer will be furnished by union musicians. The union will be hel'l responsible for the carrying out of tiie schedule after it '"s boe ".cered by the board. The Everett, Wash., laundry strike lasted one week. The girls promised . to start a union laur.cby cf their own and began soliciting. The "open" shop bosses became panic-stricken They capitulated without demanding any- thing. The increase went, so did the recognition of the union. The records of the International Typographical Union show a decrease in deaths from hfc white plague. In 1892 the number of deaths from that cause were 48 per cent; seven years later the number had been reduced to 44 per cent and in 1907 there was a still further reduction to 36 per cent. ,Of the $100,000,000, paid out . by the employers of flabor m the United States only $44,000,000 reaches the workmen, and they in turn pay fully one-half of this sum in attorneys' fees. The remaining $56,000,000 go to liabil ity companies and lawyers. After a strike lasting but two days, the brewery workers of Daveinport, Iowa, were successful in signing up a new agreement whereby the mentis all receive substantial increases in wages as follows: Brewers and mal sters, $2 per week; bottlers, $2 and .$3; drivers, $2; engineers, ' $3.50; all men in boiler and ice departments, $2; route drivers, $2; telephone drivers, $2 and bottlers, $3 per week. The Boston Ladies' Tailors and Dressmakers' union recently estab lished a rule that no member could work overtime while there were mem bers unemployed. Several members violated the rule. Beeently they made their peace with the union by paying to the men and women 'unemployed at the time of the violation (the fuTT amounts they had received for all over time work. CENTRAL XJIBOB UNION. . TEMPLE DIRECTORS. Six Week! Hav Passed Without Meet ing to Consider Important Matters. The directors of the Labor Temple Association have not met for nearly two months. In the meantime the day of payment of the next installment on th'e mortgage draws nearer, and not a thing is being done looking towards earing for it. Not since the Temple was occapied has a report been made concerning the receipts and expendi tures, the books have not been audited and matters have been left to run at loose ends. All this is a tribute to Manager Rudy's good judgment, but it is not business. The first thing the stockholders know they will be fronted with a condition. The unions owning stock owe it to themselves to insist that their representatives on the board get busy and look after the necessary business. The board of directors is supposed to meet every week, but it has been almost two months since a quorum for the transaction of business was present. Chairman McBride should proceed at once to insist upon a meeting, and the rules in such cases made and provided should be enforced. Some provision must be made to look towards the pay ment of $4,000 by October 1 of the present year, and it ia going to take both energy and sacrifice to meet the payment. NO PLEASURE IN STRIKE Unions Deprecate Them More Than Anybody Else Possibly Can. The strike is a feature of the labor movement that is by no means a pleas ure to the organized worker. When he strikes, he does not do so for merely for something to do. A strike is not the result of ignor ance on the part of the laborer. It is the result of intelligence. A writer says: "Fools do not strike. Were our workingmen everywhere on a par with the serfs of the middle ages, we should have but a few, if any, strikes; but with the intelligence that he has the workingman insists that that intelligence be felt." Du luth Labor World. GET BUST NOW. Chance for Union Fraternal Society Men to do Real Boosting. Here is a list of some of the frater nal organs that are printed under un fair conditions. Members of organ ized labor and friends who are mem bers of these societies are requested to register vigorous protests against such of the latter that directly or in directly assist in forcing long hours and low wages upon trade unionists. Look over the list and pass it around the lodges: Knights of Pythias News, official organ of insurance department of the Knights of Pythias, Chicago, 111. The Mystic Worker, official organ of the Mystic Workers of the World. The Columbian Herald, official or gan of the Order of Columbus Knights. The United Forester, official organ of the United Order of Foresters, Mil waukee, Wis. The American Patriot, official organ of American Patriots, Springfield, 111. The National Record, official organ Should Consider Labor Day Matters at Its Next Regnlar Meeting. ' At its meeting on June 24 the Central Labor Union attended to routine mat ters only, but gave a little time to the discussion of the bond proposition. The central body will meet again in regular session 'on Friday, July 8. We would suggest that at this meeting the central body take up the matter of the proper observance of Labor Day and appoint the necessary committee to set the ball rolling. The Central Labor Union benefit pro posed recently will soon be a reality. The Lyric stoek company, which closes this week, will ' give the benefit, pre senting the sterling labor play, "The Long Strike." Mr. Murdock wilt have charge of the benefit performance, which is a guarantee that it will be well worth while. TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION. Lincoln Typographical Unioi No. 209 will meet in regular session next Sun day at 2 o'clock p. m. Installation of officers will be the chief card on tho afternoon's program.
