OF BIG CONVENTION
Philadelphia, by Reason of
l -v Its History, a Fitting Place
for Assembly of Federa
tion. By GEORGE H. TTLBICH
resident. Ctntnl lMfitT tlhlon of rhlladet
There could be no more fitting frlace for
the American Federation nf I.nhnr to hold
","ul comentloh than In thli par
rrtlcular city, because It was In this city
jt that the American Federation of Labor,
tinder thnt title, was first permanently
'F .started. It Is true that In the early 80s
thn Various craft unions were having ills-
putcs with the Knights of Labor, prin
cipally on tho question of trade auton
omy, and that they formed a loose fed
i oration known as the Federation of Or
ganized Trades and Labor Unions, but It
vraa not until after the convention of
that body In Philadelphia on May J7,
itSS, which made certain demands on tho
Knights of Labor, which demands wero
- rejected by the Richmond convention of
i the Knights of Labor, that the American
J Federation of Labor was permanently
t and colldly organized In tho shapo In
I which It now Is. Once since then tho
. city of Philadelphia has had tho pleas
f uro of entertaining n convention of tho
j. American Federation of Labor. That
was in 189?, when tho delegates, much
fewer In numbers than they now ore, as
sembled In Independent Hall.
Philadelphia Is a great Industrial cen
tre and has Initiated many great and
largo movements. The American Fcdera
Hon of Labor got Its rcnl start in this
city. It was In this city that Uriah S.
Stephens, ti tailor working at the trade,
slttlns In Falrmount Tark, talking with
his fellow workers, organized the Knights
of Labor. Although that organization,
as history has shown, was laid down on
Impractical lines. In that It sought to
mako many divergent unions and Inter
ests Join Into one single organization, still
there la no doubt that It played Its part
In tho development of the American labor
movement, and now. In Its place, stands
the more practical organization, the
American Federation of Labor, which Is
a federation of Independent trades nllve
to the development of Industry, ready to
adjust Itself to changim: and chantred
conditions nnd ready, when necessary, to
form practical Industrial groups of vail
Philadelphia has been a great labor cen
tre. It has hart great labor leaders. It
has had labor leaders who, though some
times mistaken In their views, have hon
estly worked for tho advancement of
labor's cause. P. J. Magulre, of the Car
penters' Union, the father of Labor Day.
which was ilrst celebrated In 1S82, had
his headquarters In this city for many
years. George Chance, the printer, tho
volunteer worker, who was largely Instru
mental in forming the international copy
right, law, which Is. at present on the
statute books, camo from this city.
This la a large city, both In population
nnd In area, and a crent many of the
delegates from the country districts may
be lost In wandering around. I, therefore,
BUggest that they make a note of various
labor centres In this city where they will
receive such help as may be applicable
to their Individual wants. Tho Building
Trades may be found at 1312 Filbert
street, within one-half block of City Hall.
The miscellaneous trades. Including the
Clgarmakers, of which I have the honor
to be the secretary, may be found nt 232
North Ninth street, where they occupy a
building formerly the homo of the Phi a
delphla Elks. The German trades may
bo found at two places, as follows, at the
Labor Lyceum. 6th and Brown streets,
which, by the way, was formerly a Jew
ish synagogue, nnd at the Southwark
Labor Lyceurrt, 12th and Tasker streets.
The metal trades are In the Parkway
Building, at Broad and Cherry Btreets.
The textlto workers are at the Light
house. Lehigh avenue and Howard street.
I wish the American Federation of
Labor a pleasant time here, and the trade
unionists of Philadelphia will do their
best to see that the delegates have a
pleasant time. I also hope that, as a re
sult of Its deliberations, the convention
will still further advance the cause of
labor under the'banner of the American
Federation of Labor.

The resolution has been Introduced by
delegates representing the International
Association of Bridge and Structural
Tron Workers, which organization at Its
repent convention In Peoria, III., adopted
a. tentative plan for such a bank.
The Idea of the Association Is to get
every trado union In the country to de
posit Its surplus in such a banlt and any
profit which may accrue as the result of
this enterprise be used In the Interest of
the labor movement.
According to Joseph E. McClory, presi
dent of the International Association of
Xirldge and Structural Iron Workers,
many banks where the moneys of unions
are deposited loan out these funds to em
Hittyers who are antagonistic to labor,
who use these funds against the Interests
of organized labor.

bank were established and all the unions

to bring about."

his nudlence thnt there was full recogni

In outlining the problem peculiar to
Philadelphia In transit development nnd
the general plan tlint has heon advanced
for Its solution, Director Taylor said:
"Large cities of the United States are
constantly outgrowing the cnpnclty of
existing facilities for public service.
Among those facilities which arc par
ticularly essential to a city's doVelop-
mrni nre waier mains, sewers and trans

"This has always been n city of In

creasingly great distances between nvall-
anie residential nreao nnd places of cm-"
ployment. Tho Inevitable nlternntlvo
would be to crowd tho futuro Increased
population Into flats nnd tenements In
the areas already built up. Such condi
tions nre beyond the pnle of consideration.
"Standing snunrcly bv the nnMnnt n.i.
vice, 'Look beroro you leap,' the city
undertook two years ago to make a prac
tical, sclentld"! nnd complete study of
what Is needed, and of ways nnd means
"The results of this study were em
bodied In the report of tho Transit Com
