RAILWAY LABOR IN
Brotherhoods and Unions Join
in Fight to Uphold Adamson
Amalgamation of the four lailioao
brothel hoods with the labor orgiml
.itloiiH representing other lines of
railway employment wns effected
hero yestrduv at i JCC'i't imetlng.
Thl action, taken In advance of
the meeting of Congress, when labor
matters of vital Interest are to he
considered, means that all employes
of the railroad'i oi the country are

wages nnd un eight-hour day.
The brotherhoods' hnvc fought their
battles without tile assistance of the
American Federation of Labor. They
have stood alone for mnny years(
unglng their labor lights without out
side Influence. In agreeing to com
bine with the labor unions associated
with the American Federation of
Labor there was formed what Is
probably tone of the most powerful,
labor organizations the world has
Met At Labor Temple.
The meeting was held at the head
quarters oC the American Federation
of Labor Here. Samuel Qompers,
president of tho federation, came over
fiom Daltlmore and participated. The
brotherhoods were represented by W.
O. Lee, chief of tho Brotherhood of
Italtwuy l rutnmen; Wurren S. Htonc,
chief or the Hrotherhood of Locomo
tive Knglncers; W. 8. Carter, chief
of tho Hrotherhood of Docomotive
Firemen, nnd L. II. Kheppard, acting
chief- of tho Hrotherhood of Hallway
Conductors. A. li. Qarretson, chief
of the conductors. In taking an ex
tended leave of absence.
In the railway organizations which
amalgamated with the brotherhoods
there are 300,000 men. The brother
hoods have a membership of -tOO.UOO,
and tho union brings the American
Federation of Labor into the plans
of the brotherhoods.
Heretofore tho brotherhoods had
no connection with the federation,
but as the railroad organizations
amalgamated with tho brotherhoods
are members of the American Fed
