Also Acts General Resentment Among Labor
Unions Over Action of Simon O'Donnell.
Ten thousand union painters in Chicago, have withdrawn from the
Building Trades Council, and if is believed other strong unions will follow.
It may mean the organization of a new council and the retirement of
Simon O'Donnell as the big leader of the building trades unions.
Throughout the rank and file of the strongest union men there is bitter
resentment of the deal O'Donnell made with Hearst to get out a so-called
union edition of the Examiner, with O'Donnell as editor-in-chief.
Having stirred up a hornet's nest among the staunch union men in his
organization, O'Donnell is reported to have left town, with Frank Thoman
of the advisory board to sit on the lid, with a red hot fire under the lid.
The cause of all the trouble is the action of President O'Donnell in
gaveling through a resolution last Friday night endorsing his deal with
Hearst, and then taking up his headquarters in the Hearst building as a
Hearst editor of the special edition.
Besides the body blow delivered 'at the Hearst-O'Donnell deal by the
Painters' District Council, the Allied Printing Trades Council last night
unanimously denounced the alleged trades union edition and protested
against the Building Trades Council or any other union body using a
Hearst paper as an official organ, unless that paper had a union label
