The monthly meeting of the Central
Labor Union at Beck's Hall last Sunday
was attended by the largest outpouring
of delegates and trades unionists that has
assembled in this city during the past
year, who came together to celebrate in , a
fitting manner the great victory scored by
Louisville at the convention of the Atner
ican Federation of Labor at Detroit, and
hear the reports of the delegates, details
of which were published in these columns
last weekt besides nominating officers for
the ensuing year.
The greatest interest centered in the
reports of Walter M. Young and James
McGill, the representatives to the Detroit
c6nvention, which while verbal were
very concise and complete, embracing all
the important proceedings sustaining the
Central Labor Union, which were this
week verified, the national officers of
one local union having forwarded orders
that unless its delegates were withdrawn
from the unrecognized body the charter
would be taken away. The reports and
the announcement that the next conven
tion would be held here created great
Resolutions were passed thanking all
those who had in any way contributed
toward the bringing ot the convention to
Louisville, among them being the Board
of Trade, Commercial Club, General
Council, Evening Post, Dispatch, Anzei-
ger and Kentucky Irish American.
The credentials of David Burke, repre
senting the Amalgamated Association of
Street Railway Employes, and Gus Hen

his mission here. During his remarks
he paid a neat tribute to the working-

these obligations he was delivering lec
tures on labor questions in the larger
cities. He had come for the purpose of
asking the co-operation of the Central
Labor Union in making arrangements for
the distinguished lecturer's appearance
