i Plans for entertaining the 1906 con
vention of the American Federation of
f- Labor in Minneapolis, are already being
considered, an-d it goes without saying
that Minneapolis will care for the gath
ering in a way which will be satisfac
tory. Minneapolis was a favorite from
the start of the balloting, having a good
lead on the first ballot. Toronto, Ont.
Montreal, Que., and Denver, Col., were
other aspirants for the honor. The first
ballot resulted: Minneapolis, 6,238 To
xonto, 4,230 Montreal, 2,443 and Den
ver, 282. Bealizing that neither Cana
dian city could win if both remained in
the contest, Montreal withdrew on themake
second ballot an-d asked that its support
be given to Toronto. This left Minne
apolis and Toronto to fight it'out, with
the result that the former won handi
ly, the final vote being: Minneapolis,
17,506 Toronto, 6,437.
Immediately upon their arrival in
DPittsburg, the Minneapolis delegates, A.
iG Bainbridge and A. E. Kellington.
went to work with a view of enlisting
the support of everyone they could in
an effort to get the convention. John
Mitchell, president of the United Min
(Workers, was approached and consent
ted to throw his support to the Flour
City, as also did the officials of the car
penters' and teamsters' organizations,
all of which gave their undivided sup
port. The painters, granite cutters, en
gineers and firemen were also enlisted,
an'd then the fight was won.
Convention a Lively One.
'About 400 delegates were in attend
ance and the convention was a lively
one. Jurisdictional disputes between
the plumbers and steamfitters, the long
shoremen an'd the seamen, and the team
sters, engineers, firemen and coopirs
employed by the breweries and the
brewery workers' organization were the
chief contests. It develops that the
federation has not as yet granted a
charter to tlie steamfitters. The acworkers
tion of the convention merely recom
mended that the executive council grant'
such a charter if in its judgment such
was deemed proper. It is the hope of
those interested that some compromise
will result which will bring into one
organization all workmen in the pipe
trades. Edward J. McCullem, presi
dent of the St. Louis Trades Council,
presented the case of the steamfitters
and showed conclusively that the latter
had control in' all of the large cities,
and it was mainly thru his able efforts
that action favorable to the granting of
the charter was taken. John Mangan
of Chicago was present in the interests
of the fitters.
Socialists Unpopular.
Socialism did not cut much figure in
the convention. Victor Berger of Mil
waukee and J. Mahlon Barnes of Chi
cago were the leading socialist spirits,
and these men refused to cast their
votes for Gompers for president, altho
there was no opposition to him. Presi
dent Gompers took occasion to roast''
Berger and his party before the con
vention, referring to him as "th man
who made Milwaukee famous,^' after
which John Mitchell arose and objected
to further discussion of socialist reso
lutions. The delegates sustained his
position, and nothing more was heard of
the radicals.
i All the old officers were re-elected,
"with the exception of William J. Spennext
cer, eighth vice president, who was de
1 feated by William Huber, president of
the Carpenters and Joiners of America.
iMr. Spencer's defeat is attributed to
^is activity in the controversy between
$he plumbers and steamfitters. The re

of Boston and James Wilson of New
(Sork were chosen as fraternal dele
gates to represent the federation at the
British Trades and Labor congress, and
ffhomas A. Bickert of New York was
i elected as delegate to the Canadian
labor congress. When announcement
of the election of President Gompers
was made, J. Mahlon Barnes of Chi-
'I sago made an attempt to present a
I resolution declaring President Gompers
unfair. He was loudly hissed. The
chair refused to accept the resolution.
The following resolutions were unani-

possessions prohibiting the employ

federa-
tion Specia attention wa shown the
Injunction question, and the committee
on president's report condemned the
injunction laws now in force in the
United States, and declared them un
constitutional.
The application of the Stonemasons'
International union for a charter in the
federation was refused, and the Car
Painters' union, which has been affil
iated with the American Car Workers'
union, was ordered to become a mem
ber of the Brotherhood of Painters and
Decorators.
Next Wednesday evening the local
Trades Assembly will take up the ques

Preliminary committees will be ap

the largest and most successful in the
history of the federation.
CARPENTERS RAISE DUES
After April 1 Members Will Pay 75
is- Cents a Month.
Carpenters' union No. 7 has voted to
Jacrease the monthly dues, and after
News Section
April 1 each member will pay 75 cents
a month instead of 50 cents. Expenses
in connection with conducting the busi
ness of the organization are heavy and
are increasing.
Last year something like $3,000 was
paid out in sick benefits, averaging
about 24 cents for each paid-up mem
ber. Per capita tax to the interna
tional organization uses 25 cents per
capita to the State Federation of Labor,
1 cent per capita tax to the Trades
Assembly and the Building Trades Coun
cil, half a cent, and hall rent 1% cents
for each.member. Salaries of officers
a large addition to the expense
account. One business agent is em
ployed all the time, and for a large part
of the year it is necessary to have two.
A secretary and assistant secretary are
employed, it being out of the question
that one person could properly handle
the work of looking after the financial
end. There are at present upwards of
1,300 members in good standing, and
more are being constantly added, so the
outlay is bound to increase.
Higher dues seems to be the only solu
tion, and the action raising them was
taken at a meeting attended by several
hundred members, and was carried by
a decisive vote. A number of other
local unions are considering the advisa
bility of increasing their dues.
BAFFLE CAUSES TROUBLE
Milwaukee Trades Council Brands I
a Contemptible Scheme."
Frederic Heath, secretary of the Mil
waukee Federated Trades council, is out
with a letter protesting against an ar
ticle which has been published by many
of the labor papers in regard to the
trouble between the Milwaukee Wood
workers' union and the council.
Some time ago the Milwaukee wood
went on strike. The strike was
called off July 20, 1904. Becently a
circular was issued over the signatures
of four members of the woodworkers'
union advertising a raffle, the proceeds
of which were to be used to replenish
the treasury of the union. I happened
that the article which was to have been
raffled, a motorcycle, was donated by
one of the four men who signed the
circular. The Milwaukee Trades coun
cil started an investigation and stimped
the whole transaction as dimply
another contemptible scheme o1 i few
labor fakirs to fleece organized 'ibor
in general."
The Woodworkers' International
union has taken the matter up and made
an attempt to bring the Trades council
to time, but without success, and just
now it is hard to tell where the trouble
will end. Two of the former officers'
of the local woodworkers' council have
issued a statement upholding the Trades
council.
FAVOR CONSOLIDATION
Local Metal Polishers May Join Forces
with St. Paul Union.
Steps have been taken to effect a
consolidation of Metal Polishers' union
No. 116, with No. 273 of St. Paul. The
local organization has already voted in
favor of such a proposition, and the St.
Paul local will decide the matter at its
meeting. It is the intention, if
consolidation goes thru, to hold meet
ings at Midway.
A number of the smaller organiza
tions are considering a similar move.
It is thought by the advocates of the
plan that both locals of the metal
polishers will benefit by the proposed
union.

LEAVES FOR DENVER
John J. Whitehead Is Delegate to Bill'
Posters' Union.
John J. Whitehead left Friday "morn
ing for Denver, Coh,-where he goes as
a delegate from the local Bill Posters'
and Billers' union to the national con
vention. Mr. Whitehead has been iden
tified with the local union since its
organization and has been honored by
being chosen a delegate to several con
ventions.
Arrangements for the annual ball,
which is scheduled for some time in
January, were considered at the* last
meeting, and a committee was apimportant
pointed to take the preliminary steps,
as follows: Messrs. M. Nagel, M. A.
Edwards, W. J. McDonald, J. Carr and
Luekenmeyer.
W. Murphy and Nic Petit, who have
been "o the road" the past season,
returned to Minneapolis for the win
ter.
COULDN'T STAY THERE
Illness In Family Shortens Bainbridge's
Attendance at Federation.
A. G. Bainbridge, who went to Pitts
burg, Pa., as a delegate to the meeting
of the board of governors of the
Structural Building Trades' alliance,
and also as a delegate from the Trades
assembly ta the convention of the
American Federation of Labor, re
turned, to Minneapolis Wednesday in
response to a telegram announcing the
serious illness of Mrs. Bainbridge. He
had been elected a delegate to the con
vention of Painters and Decorators,
which meets tomorrow in Memphis,
Tenn., and intended remaining in Pitts
burg until Friday and then going to'
the convention city.
It was doubtless a bitter disappoint
ment to Mr. Bainbridge and his friends
that he was obliged to return home,
for his chances of being chosen to one
of the important offices in his union
were considered favorable. However,
the northwestern delegation, which
left Minneapolis Friday night, will try
to have him retained as first vice pres
ident, which means that he may con
tinue as a member of the board of
governors. He has been a member of
the board since the organization of the
alliance, and has done much for that
body in the northwest.
Eleven delegates met here and left
for the convention by the same route,
as follows: Minneapolis, Martin Jor
genson, B. L. Warham, 8. J. Spencer,
C. T. Frye, B. Frederickson and Charles
Nelson St. Paul, John Wise and W. C.
Van Brunt Sioux Falls, S. D., A. J.
Wiggins Duluth, T. G. Freshney and
L. F. Mayer. Mr. Spencer goes as al
ternate in place of Mr. Bainbridge.
While in Pittsburg his earnest and
consistent efforts in behalf of Minne
apolis won for him the title of "The
Minneapolis booster," his personal ef
forts having been largely responsible
tor the decision of the federation t
meet here.
Mr. Bainbridge says the Structural
Building Trades' alliance is gaining
steadily. A conference was held be
tween the board and the international
officers of the various building trades
in order to compare ideas, get sugges
tions and secure their co-operation in
making the work of the alliance more
effective. Applications for charters
were received from the International
Marble and Tile Setters, and the Wood,
Wire and Metallic Lathers, both of
which were admitted, and a representa
tive of the former was given a place
on the board. The Electrical Workers
presented an application for member
ship, and after a question of jurisdic
tion was settled regarding the conduit
work, which was claimed by the plumb
ers and gasfitters, they were passed
upon favorably, and the new officers
will affiliate the first of the year.
Officers of the alliance went to Nor
folk, Va., and had a conference with

Europe differs
radically tonsorial art
as we know i i America.
To begin with the"~beginning. The
barber's pole as a symbol is not at all
important a brass dish with a notch in
its side serves very well for a sign.
This is in allusion to'the barber's for
mer profession of leeching.'' The bar
ber's sign then served to catch the
blood. The notch in the side of it
helped it to fit more closely to the
arm, or leg, as the case might be, which
was bled. The dish of soup-plate de
sign, with the exception of the notch
in it,, resembles the brass helmet of the
Spanish soldier. Hence DJ Quixote's
mistake when he utilized a barber's
sign for a head-covering and called it
the "Helmet of Mambrino." It was
not the helmet of Mambrino, but it was
a very good head-covering, neverthe
less, and quite in the fashion of those
days. In addition to this notched brass
soup-plate sign, the barber has, as ac
companiment, a switch of hair. Both
symbols are hung from a scroll, and on
the scroll we read "Coiffeur."

The shop window of the European
barber has a frosted lace-work design
upon it, thru the intricacies uf which
may be seen some two-score prepara
tions for the hair's longevity and col
oration. The American tourist's curios
ity is more strongly excited by the silk
net mustache-bands, which are used to
hold the. whiskers in place, a la Em
peror William they are worn during
sleep. Whetr* a' Fr&ich^ artist desires
to be very funny hi makes-Ji picture

shop's exterior.
l* .$. 4. 4.
Upon entering the shop the first thing
that greets the eye is the proprietor.
I say "thing" advisediy. The pro
prietor is always very beautiful his
beard is, Oh, so glossy and Au, so
curly! The customer feels like Don
Juan at the court of Catherine of Bus
sia. Two, three or four comfortable
armchairs face an equal number of
marble washstands, which are placed
against the wall. An attendant brings
a linen "duster," which is buttoned
in back, and the customer seats him
self. After being lathered and shaved
'the subject is expected to wash his face
in the basin of the washstand. Four
cents is the price of a shave, even in
the most aristocratic neighborhood, but
two cents is expected as pourboire,''
or tip. This tip differs from European
tips in general, because it is a strictly
impersonal tip, and is deposited in an
elaborately silvered vase, with a slot
for the purpose. Once a week the vase
is opened the presence of all the
barbers and the lucre is divided.
Altho four cents is the price of a
shave, ^there are sundries which would
turn an American barber pale with
envy. Two cents for this, three cents
for that, and the fastidious Frenchman
manages to spend twenty or thirty cents
on his beautification every time he en
ters the barber's shop.

WORK WITH,HAND OR BRAIN
UOUL$\ man "jae relegated to the
background after having passed
the age of 451 Perhaps you are
one, of the many who concur in this
belief. It so, Ia sure I shall con
vince you that the healthy man of 45
is better physically, mentally and mor
ally than the man twenty years his
junior.
My attention was called to an adver
tisement in the want columns of a news
paper today:
SOLICITOR WANTEDA8 ASSISTANT TO
manager must be under 40, position of re
sponsibility, good wages, etc.
1 claim that the man who depends on
his brain for his living and has been
on earth for forty-five years could, pro
viding he is possessed of that peculiar
ability that constitutes a solicitor, fill
the above position to perfection, and to
better advantage than he man under 40
years of age, because a man 40 years of
age is in the prime of life.
He has twenty years still before him
that he can devote to business. He has
the advantage of much larger experi
ence than the younger man. He has en
joyed a splendid education (perhaps not
theoretically), as thoro as the young
man, but by attending that great school
of learning, practical experience, and
grinding away side by side with the ex
perienced business man, he is in my
opinion a far .better salesman than the
young fellow, who usually thinks he
knows it all.
The youngster may be a great talker,
and at times grow eloquent. However,
the man at 45 and older has the judg
ment, and uses strategy in order to se
cure business and is not so liable to
make the mistake of talking too much.
The old fellow can effect a sale often
when the young fellow fails, because his
experience has taught him to use diplo
macy. If his customer desires to talk
on the topics of the day, or perhaps on
religion or politics, the old salesman
does not differ from his customer's
views, but deftly leads him back again
and secures the^ order. The younger
man often antagonizes his customer by
taking 'the opposite view in an argu
ment because he realizes that he is
right.
Experience has taught the old-time
salesman that altho his prospective cus
tomer may be making an ass of himself
he should not inform him of that fact,
but when the time comes will present
the contract and secure his signature.
The man at 45 should not be rele
gated to the background, for he is a
better worker than the young man. He

usually loves his work and puts his
heart and soul into it. The people he
comes in contact with place more con
tfidence in his statements than they do
in the younger and inexperienced man.
The^man at 45 has'finished sowing his
wild*oats he carries himself with more
dignity than the younger man. He is
possessed of too much sense to approach
a customer with a cigar in his mouth or
with a whisky breath.
Sense of Duty Grows With Age.
You will-seldom find the man at 45
years of age shirking his duty you will
not so often find him at the matinees,
or at a game of ball, or at the races,
when there is work to do.
In fact, the man at 45 is far more re
liable than the man under 40,
andfor
should be given the preference, as he
can readily demonstrate that he usually
earns more than he is paid. To demon
strate the truth of the above I shall re
late a recent experience that occurred
in my life. Last January I was resid
ing in Ohio, and decided to locate in
Chieago, as the opportunities in the
metropolis of the west were, according
to my ideas, better for a man at 45 with
ability than they would be in a smaller
city.
Upon leaving my former home I in
formed friends that I was confident that
with my thirty years of experience as a
salesman and solicitor I would find no
difficulty in obtaining employment and
be able to provide for my family as
well and even better than heretofore.
Learning that several of the business
colleges were in^need of a good so
licitor, I offered my services to the prin
cipal of a college that had a good repu
tation. My duties were to enroll stu
dents by selling certificates of educa
tion^ scholarships to the young people
or rather their parents or guardians.
The salary was good, and I commenced
work on a trial of three months. The
class of work is mostly housework, or,
calling on families. It requires strict
application to business, and also neces
sitates calling at night after working
hours. I found competition in the city
was fierce, but believed my school was
the best on earth and told the people so,
the result was that I "made good" by
"delivering the goods."
Man Over 40 "Makes Good."
The management appreciated my ef
forts by increasing my salary and mak
ing along contract with me. Now, this
was accomplished under difficulties, as
I did not know one street from the
other, and, of course, was compelled to

FEESH AIR FOB FIBB-FIGHTEB8.
An ingenious respiratory apparatus
the use of firemen, the invention
of Charles E. Chapman, a mechanical
draftsman of Berkeley, Oal., is described
in the Scientific American by Arthur
Innersley. It consists, he tells us, of a
hood lined with oiled silk, and an air
cylinder, strapped on the back, carry
ing under pressure enough air to last
an hour. The air is conducted by a rub
ber tube to the head-piece, the exhaled
air passing out thru a valve before the
mouth. To quote Mr. Innersley:
"The fireman can get enough air to
fill his lungs comfortably, but cannot
expend the supply in a short time, as
he might be tempted to do if he be
came frightened. The main supply o?
air comes from the outer cylinders, the
middle one being smaller and to be
drawn upon only after the other two
are exhausted. The appartus can be
adjusted on the back in half a minute,
and, as it weighs only twenty-three
pounds, it does not impede the fireman
in his work.
A test of the appartus has been
made in the presence of the fire chief
of San Francisco. A man equipped with
the apparatus entered a room filled with
the fumes of burning sulphur and
worked there for a full hour, coming
out with his throat and lungs perfectly
free. The fire commissioners of San
Francisco will have a practical demon
stration of the apparatus, which is
simple and ntot likely to get out of order.
If on further test it proves satisfac
tory, it will be adopted by the San
Francisco fire department and, doubt
less, by the fire commissioners of other
cities and towns."
