$25 Prize For New Title For Everett
la order t" advertise the city at all times, tlie chamber of com-
ree cells tor suggestions of a popular title which fittingly and
attractively describes or advertises Everett. By this i> not meant a
motto, but -imply a brief, catch) name. Portland, for instance, has
widely advertised herself as •■'ihe City of Rose*.*' Seattle denominates
herself the 'Queen City. Other place- have assumed titles which linger
iv the public mind and give a pleasant Impression of the cities referred
to. "The < Ity of Smokestacks," which is «o unioely suggestive of the
Industrial side of Everett's development, ha- pio.ed a good advertise-
tit of the most important manufacturing citj mi Puget Sound. But
it is thought that it would lie well to use a name that covers a wider
scope than the Industrial Interests alone one that appeals to the
homenceker, ami which furnishes the suggestion that draws attention
to ami arouses intct'CSl in Everett.
The chamber of commerce has nnthoriaed n prize of (2Ji to Hie one

ttons should lie addrcftcsd to the secretary of tl hambcr of commerce)

At present there are seventy-two
different labels issued by the crafts
affiliated with the American Federation
of Labor, and I can safely say without
fear of contradiction, that in ninety
nine eases out of a hundred no trade un
ionist knows much, or for that matter
anything at all, aliout tin' labels of
other crafts. If the laboring people
who should create the demand and who
are to make the purdhases of union
made goods are unfamiliar with the dif
ferent characters of labels, and if the
people studying and advocating them
are ignorant of the multiplicity of em
blems, how can labor expect the world
at large to bo conversant with the var
ious designs or be impressed with their
significance Xo union should promote
solely and exclusively the interest of
its individual label. Each union should
pursue a broad course of merging its
interests with every other affiliated
union, to the end that labor should
grow in power in a solid and general
way, with principles so broad and lib
eral that every mechanic will take
pleasure in becoming a member of an
organization representing strength and
Apparently most trade unionists are

Of the welfare of the American Feder
ation of Labor. The love for individual
labels is like the mythological story of
the youth, who, fatigued with hunting,
heated and thirsty, came to a fountain
wit'a water like silver, and as he stoop
ed to drink, saw his own image and
thought it some beautiful water spirit.
As he stood gazing with admiration at
those bright eyes, those locks curled
like the locks of Bacchus or Apollo, the
round cheeks, the ivory neck, the part
ed lips, toe glow of health and exercise
over all, he fell in love with the reflec
tion -the reflection of his own face.
He tried to tear himself away, but
failed to do so, and while hovering over
the brink of the fountain, gazing a'
the face he loved so well, fell into the
pool, was drowned, and so disappeared
The same conditions exist with the
various labels. Trade unionists seem
to be so infatuated with the face of
their own label that they sannot resign
themselves to combine theirs and others
into one general label. They do not
realize that as the label is divided, so
the label and labor falls. They prefer
going on and on, looking into the foun
tain at the reflection of their label, un
til they likewise sing into oblivion.
