THE LABOR ADVOCATE
IRON WORKERS ELECT
The structural Iron Workers held an
enthusiastic meeting last Mondav night
and elected the following officers: Harry
Smith, president; Chas. Mueller, finan
cial secretary-treasurer; Jos. Anslinger,
Col. Thus. MrKm-n,
Business Agent,.Structliral Iron Workers
recording secretary, and Thos. .McMwen,
business agent. The re-election of Col.
McEwcn is the best move that the iron
woikers could have made in their own
interest, as the longer a union keeps its
business agent, the more he can accom
plish. Good luck, Colonel.
