Chicago,111.. June, 14, 1904.
Contributionshave been inane to^the National ( ^rgani/ing Fund since^last report to the amount of ^8o.qX;^previously re[^orted, f ;, 262.96; To^^tal. tal4t^9+
Theinterest displayed in the half
day'spay donation during the third^week in June t^^ the National Cam^paign Fund is prophetic of good re^^turns. Notwithstanding that the^National Secretary sent what he be^lieved would be more than stitticient^contribution lists have had to he^supplied. I he good thing about^this scheme is that the local and^itate organisations have an equal^share in the proceeds and it is to^their interest to push the distribu^^tion of lists It the utmost.
ComradeGibson, Secretary of^Focal Rock Island County, 111.,^sends in five dollars as a contribu^^tion from the County Central Com^^mittee and says he has asked the^;tate secretary for thirty more of^the lists and ^We are going to see^every Socialist and workingman in^the county during this month.^ It^will pay every local to work in this^systematic manner. A committee^should be appointed charged with^ihe special duty of getting every So^^cialist and sympathizer to contri^^bute a half day's pay.
Hereis an extract from a letter^received by the National Secretary^I nun a comrade 83 years old living^n Red Oak, Mo., which should be^an inspiration to all Socialists to do^their duty this veai!
Iwish to do something for the^N ational Campaign Fund, although^I have no means beyond my sup^^port while I live. I therefore send^you fifty cents to apply thereon.^While I am an old man I never vot^^ed the old 'arty tickets but two or^three times in my life. I was a^reformer for over fifty years^then^a Socialist.
Myfirst vote was democratic,^mi second vote was for Henry Clay,^whig. My third v.as for the old^liberty party in 1(46, voting for^John Van buren. I was a charter^member of the republican party and^voted for Freemont, for I.incol;^twice, arid for Grant twice and have^been kicking myself ever since for^voting for him the second time.^Then I voted for Weaver and so on^down to Urvan in iSod under pro^^tect but voted the Soc ialist ticket for^state officers and have voted the So^^cialist ticket ever since. So my po^^litical life has been an evolution of^votes. I am now at the top of the^ladder, so to speak.
TheState Committee of Minne-^sota has submitted to a referendum^of the party in that state the follow^^ing list (f names from which the^membership are called upon to^choose one to be known as the So^^cialist 1 artv designation in that^state: Public Ownership party; Col^^lective Ownership party; Colleeti-^vist party; I'nion party; Revolu^^tionary parti; W orking Class party;^('imperative Commonwealth party.^This has become necessary through^a supreme court decision which pro^^hibited the Socialist partv in Minne^^sota from the use of that name.
StateConventions of the Social^*t Party are scheduled as follows:^June 12, Rhode Island, at I'rovi-^denct; June 19, Wyoming, at Fara^inie; J illy 4, Colorado, at Denver;^Indiana, at Indianapolis; Iowa, at^Mashaltown; Maryland, at Ilagers^tow n.
FocalCheyenne, Wyo., icports^the expulsion of Peter Anderson ami^( has. A. Strickland from member^ship in the local.
TheNational Secretary has had^prepared a new leaflet for general^distribution ^How to Arrange for^Socialist Meetings.^ It will be fur^nishcil to state and lot .^l secretaries^at m a thousand. This is the very^thing needed in many quarters.^^ Inters can be Idled to any quantity^at once.
Thereport of the national con^vention bound in paper and cloth^covers will be ready for delivery^June 15 anil orders will be filled^promptly after that date. The re^^port is well punted, contains every^subject of interest concerning the
conventionand it should be in the^hands of every Socialist in America.^Still paper covers, 50 cents a copy ;^red cloth cover, $1.00 a copy. Ofd-^er direct from William Mailly, Na^^tional Secretary, 2O9 Dearborn St.,^Chicago, III.
Thefollowing comrades have been^endorsed by the state committee of^California for the reserve list of lec^^turers ami organizers: M. F.. Shore^of Areata, and C. W. Woodbey of^San Diego. Unless objections are^made and a direct vote called for^the names will be placed upon the^reserve list in three weeks from this^date.
FocalDavton, ()., has requested^a referendum upon the platform,^National Constitution ^ in sections)^Trade I'nion Resolution and the^state and municipal program (in^sections. )
FocalWDrcester. Mass., request^^ed that the new constitution be sub^^mitted in sections.
FocalF.nglwood, Colo., request^that ^Sec. 1, Art. 7 of the proposed^constitution fixing the National Sec^^retary's salary at f 1500 be submitted^to a referendum that the comrades^be allow ed to vote upon the amounts^of $1000, $1200 and $1500 and the^one of these three sums receiving^the largest number of votes shall be^the yearly salary of the National^Secretary.
LocalFaribault, Minn., requested^that the platform adopted by the^convention be submitted to a refer^^endum for adoption or rejection,^and submitted another platform to^be sent out with the convention^platform for its acceptance or re^^jection as a w hole. This local also^demanded that the ^working pro^^gram^ be submitted to a referendum^vote for acceptance or rejection as a^whole.
TheNational Secretary notified^Locals Dayton and Faribault that^the State and Municipal program^was referred by the national con^^vention to the National Committee^for revision to be afterwards sub^^mitted to a referendum of the^party.
FocalFnglewood was notified^that the constitution would be sub^^mitted in sections to a referendum,^that the party would have an op^^portunity to vote upon Sec. 1, Art.^7, and that if the section was adopt^^ed, a referendum to amend or altar^could then be initiated
LocalFaribault was also notified^that as the platform adopted by the^convention was being submitted to^a referendum and it would have to^be voted upon first, no other plat^^form could be submitted at the^same time.
Theplatform an^l trades union^resolutions have been sent to a ref^erendum, the vote upon same to^close July 20th. The constitution^will be submitted in sections within^the next ten day s.

FntilI receive suc h report I shall^continue to recognize Comrade^Smith as State Secretary of III.
Thefollowing resolutions have^been received from Focal Arlington^Washington:
Resolutionsadopted unanimously^by Focal Arlington, Wash., at a^special meeting May 22, 1904.
Resolved,That it is the sense of^this Local that the action of those^delegates to the National Convention^in refusing to submit the proceed^iims of the convention to a referen^^dum vote of the membership in the^I . S., shows an autocratic spirit,^and threatens the very foundation^of the Socialist Partv, namely dem^^ocracy and takes away from the^rank and file its most priceless and^sacred right; the right to a voice^and vote in all matters pertaining to^party government. And in pursu^^ance therefore be it further
Resolved,That we demand the^immediate submitting to a referen- fr^*ers tnat thcv^dum of the entire membership all^acts of the convention, and be it^farther
Resolved,That a copy of these^resolutions be immediately forward^^ed to the National Secietary.
Pursnan t to the power vested in^us by the Constitution and Hy-Faws^we the exeetitiye board of the Hand^and Machine Sheep Shearers' Un^^ion, No. 275, A. L. IT., hereby^issue the call for the Third Annual^Convention of the above organiza^^tion to meet at Miners' I'nion Hall^at Rutte, Montana, at 10 o'clock^a. m., Monday, July 25, r904, and^to continue in session nntil all busi^^ness before it is completed.
Inaccordance with Section 2, of^Afticlu 6, of the Constitution, the^convention shall be composed of^the following: Piesiilent and Gen^^eral Organizer, N ice- President, Sec^retary Treasurer, all members of the^Executive Hoard, and one delegate^for every twenty members in good^standing.
Whetherthere are twenty M more^members in good standing, a secret^meeting c an be held and delegates^elected. Delegates must be elec ted^by secret ballot where there is more^than one candidate.
Onthe present membership, the^organization is entitled to about 50^delegates. before the time of the^convention, we hope to have enough^members to make up a convention^of about 70 delegates.
Wewant to urge on the members^everywhere to see to it that they^elec t delegates. We also want to^urge all members, who can afford it,^to attend the convention. All mem^^bers in good standing can be ad^^mitted to the convention.
Ihiplirate credentials are sent w ith^this call. Re careful to fill these^credentials out correctly. Remem^ber that the original and duplicate^must be filled out for each and^every delegate elected. P.oth the^original and duplicate must be sign^^ed by at least 20 members in pood^^tending, the same members signing^both original and duplicate. After^the credentials are properly filled out^and lignod by the required number
SheepShearers' Union. Already^we have shown the great benefit of^organization and shearers' every^^where are coming to realize that^only through organization can^they better their condition. TtMJ^know that, single-handed, nothing^can l^e accomplished. We have^demonstrated this year that our or^^ganization is a power in the way of^bettering our conditions. The strike^at Raw lins, w hile it ma^ not be con^sidered a victory in one sense, yet^it has shown that even the powerful^Carbon County Woolgrowers' Asso^ciation, with all its financial strength^cannot either awe or intimidate our^members. With not even a single^exception, our members have abso^^lutely refused to accede to the de^mands of the Woolgrowers of Car^^bon county. 'Ihe Association has^been placed on the unfair list by the^Shearers' Union, and they are UN^placed in the position where they^cannot get a single experienced^shearer. They are at present work^ing men who are altogether inexper^^ienced and unfit for the work; the]^are doing barely one third the amount^of work an average shearer could^do. This is proven by the state^^ment of one of the members of the^Carbon Woolgrowers' Association^who made this statement to one of^our officers that the strike at Raw^^lins had already cost him $10,000.^Yes, it probably cost this amount,^but how much more will it cost be^^fore they are williug to pay a living^price, and recognize our union^^This strike will be such a severe les^^son to the Carl^on County Wool-^^ 1,1 be only too^glad next year to come to the un^^ion and grant our demands. We^don't ask for an excessive price; all^we want is a living price, and one^we are entitled to.
Todaythe Sheep Shearers' Union^has one of the brightest futures be^^fore it of any union in America It^is composed of the truest and staunch^est union men that can be found^anywhere. Fet us reap the greatest^benefits. This can only be accom^^plished by getting together in one^organization. One of the first steps^in this directum can be taken by all^the meinbeis attending the Third^Annual Convention. Wake up boys^and take an interest! Don't feel that^you are not needed. You are; we^want your help; we must have it in^ouler to get the best results. We^want every member to be heard.^So get on your ' fighting clothes^^and come to the convention. ll we^can't get a hall big enough to ac-^^ lnmodate the crowd, we will rent^the broadway theatre, whic h has a^seating capacity of about 3000.
