DO AWAY WITH
All Organizations ' Warned
That Negro Workers Must Be
Given Full Membership
With White Men.
Montreal, June 10. The Ameri
can Federation of Labor in its an
nual convention here today wiped
out the "color line" and warned its
affiliated international unions that
negro workers must be given full
and equal memoersnip witn wintering tne problem of financing be
men. Pf .l. r u- a.. i..u - u.
The federation's action came at
the end of a stormy session which
nearly resulted in a "race war" be
tween delegates from the southern
states and the negroes and their
Rejecting the recommendation of
its organization committee, the fed
eration for the first time in history
threatened the autonomy of an af
filiated union by requesting the
brotherhood of railway clerks to
give the negro freight handlers, ex
press and station employes, full
membership aud eliminate from its
constitution the words "white only."
Indignation of the negro delegates
was aroused several limes during
the debate when speakers referred
to them as "nigjor" freight handlers
and their objection to such remarks
was sustained by the acting chair
man, James Duncan.
An appeal to the workers to de
sert the federation and align with
the one big union spread broadcast
through the city today, asserted
that crift uni.ni'sm. was "doomed."
The circular, addressed to "all fel
low workers," and warning them
that the "satellites of craft union
ism" were in their midst was the
first open attack on the American
Federation by the one big union or
ganization in Canada.

one word written over the head of
my husband, if he is elected, and that
word is 'tragedy."

daughters, but that isn't any reason
why we should be barred from the
