the Railway Telegraphers. Is president,
is to be held iv Chicago next Sunday to
discuss the situation.
Conditions are looking brighter cv
cry day for the ultimate success of the
switehraen. Commercial clubs in differ
cut sections of the country are urging
a speedy settlement, claiming that busi
ness is being paralysed and that the
losses being sustained are enormous.
Public sympathy is with the switch
men, not only for the splendid fight
they are making but because the public
has been brought to realise the simple
justice of their demands. Organised la
bor is standing solidly behind the
strikers and have offered not only their
moral support, but. wind is more to the
point, their financial assistance ii need
cd. Several unions in the city have al
ready voluntarily donated money to the
boys to aiil them in parrying on their
conflict.
The Switchmen locally are as en
thusiastic as the day they were called
out. They have uot lost a man and
are determined to remain out until or
dered back by their head officials. They
have adopted the slogan. "Tbis figiil
must be won."
One thing is certain: if the switch
men cannot win this strike, then no
other single railroad organization can
win one.
CHARLES R. CASE MAY
RUN FOR CONGRESS.
Oharle* It. Case, the worthy president
of tho Washington State Federation of
Labor, is being urged by friends to he
come a candidate for congress nt the
|x>lls next November,
.Mr. Case is a republican and qvery
one who knows him speaks in the high
est terms of him. He lias "made good"
as president of the great state federa
tion and if he should run he undoubted
ly would have the united support of all
labor men throughout the whole slate,
and the labor press as well.
He said one day last week that many
members of various unions had urged
him to announce his candidacy but he
would not be able tv make a stand for
somo time.
If organized labor should exert them
selves. "Charley" would win in a walk.

MITCHELL FOR BOYCOTT.
.abor Leader Claims Right to Buy
Where He Pleases.
Indorsing a report of tbs committee
on boycott at the federation convention
in Toronto, John Mitchell said:
••1 want the people of the United
States to know my position. 1 shall
i not speak definitely; but, be the conse
quences what they will. I shall not
i surrender any right guaranteed to me
by the constitution of our country, i
am not sure how much mental and
physical suffering will be necessary
to make me submit, but if 1 know my
self uot any amount of suffering will
persuade me that I have not the right
to spend my money where I please or
t that I have not the right to write and
speak as I please, being responsible
under tbe law for my nets. Whether \[
the boycott be a benefit or a detri
ment, each man must decide where he '
will bestow his patronage. I maintain >
; that my patronage is my own and no
merchant has a property light in It. It
is mine to give or bestow as suits my
j own pleasure, said any attempt through
the subtleties of the law to take from
men the absolute right to do what they ■
please with their own money must be
opposed to the very limit.
"I understand that cognisance is be
ing taken nt Washington of the utter
ances of men on the floor of this con
vention, and 1 want clearly to state my
position. I propose in the future, as 1
have in the past, to exercise the rights .
! secured to me by the fathers of my |
country, and I propose if 1 am sent to .
Jail to declare again when 1 come out J
for the rights guaranteed me under <
the law. 1 make this declaration not J
to tickle the ear of any man, but that I
I tuny publicly declare the conviction J
that is within me.
, "It seems to me that tbe whole pro- |
ceedings should prove a lasting les
son to the workingmen of the United
States and Canada. If all the work
ingmen had been true to themselves
there would not have been a nonunion
product on the market.
"I am proud of being an American,
but I want to see tbe word American
stand for all the sentiment that is
symbolized by the flag of our country.
I want real liberty. I don't believe in
the liberty enunciated by some of our
courts that men and women should
have the right to work themselves to
death. I don't believe in the liberty
enunciated by Judge Tutbtll of Chi
cago, who declared unconstitutional
the ten hour law for women and by
that act compelled tbem to work four
teen hours a day.
"Is the time going to come ou our
continent when the badge of faithful
ness to labor must be the brand of Im
prisonment?" he said in conclusion.
The report which drew forth Mitch
ell's speech and which was adopted by
tbe convention is as follows:
"We say that when your cause is
just and every other remedy has been
employed without result, boycott: we
say that when the employer has deter
mined to exploit not only adult male
labor, but our women and children, 1
and our reasoning and appeal to his j
fairness and his conscience will not
sway him. boycott; we say that when
labor has been oppressed, browbeaten
nnd tyrannized, boycott: we say that
when social and political Conditions ls»
--eome so bad that ordiunrj remedial
measures are fruitless, boycott, and,
[finally, we say we have a rlghl to boy- J
eott and we propose In exercise that
right. In the application of this right
to boycott, to paraphrase the president
(Goinpersl, we propose to strive ou
and on,"
Douglas Shoe Strike Settled.
The controversy over the use of the
""'on stamp between the Douglas Shoe
company and the International Hoot
and Shoo Worker*' union, w hereby the
j former discarded the stamp in its sev
eral \ew England factories and the
i latter went on a strike of several
i months' duration, litis I n settled to
the satisfaction of all concerned. This
strike lias been the occasion of mil '
j interest throughout the entire l
i movement in this country, and the i
tlement reached does credit to thos.
who engineered it.

GEMS FROM GOMPERS.
In the whole history of our move
latent no grantee struggle has taken
Ptaee than that for the preservation
.mm the maintenance <>f tbe right of
1 free press nnd free speech.
j The people .»f our country have with
tbe men of labor ma.lc it . tear to the
> whole world that no curtailment of the
; rtgbta of free press and free speech
, will Ite tolerated.
The herculean efforts of the men ot
labor to arouse the people of the conn
iry to a realization of the daugei
which threatens our constitutional lib-
WUee will go down In the annuls ol
history as one of the great crusades
tor the maintenance and advancement
if human righta.
There is uo persecution, no injustice
to a great movement. | )Ut )f lIIPt („ ~

Out of this attempt to seal tbe U M
