Au interesting point ) In the question
or industrialIsm as against trade
autonomy may bo seen In the recent
affilIation of the United Order of Box
Makers and Sawyers : oC America with
the American Labor union. 'rho latter
organization stands for industrialIsm
first , last and all the time , according
to the leaders , and the unions which
compose It are supposed ) to he founded
on Industrial l1nes The interesting
point ) Is that for years the United
Order of Boxmalcors kept applying to
the American Federation of Labor for
a charter and was denied one 011 the
ground that the Amalgamated Wood-
workors' International union had jurIsdiction -
Isdiction over all wood box makers. In
other words , the American Federation
oC Labor In that particular case stood
for Industrialism by reCusing to recog-
nlzo the hoxmakers as a separate organization .
ganization and yet it Is recognized hy
an organization which avowedly
stands for industrialism Truly , It
would require the proverbial PhIladel-
