TEN TRADE UNION COM
(By W. J. SHIELDS)
1. Thou shalt attend the meetings
of the union, and be not tardy, nor
leave before adjournment. Your in
terests are at stake, see that they
have the attention of your personal
2. Thou shalt take an active part
In the meetings and regard thyself
as the chief pillar of the union and
the one without which the structure
could not stand.
3. Thou shalt shake hands and
welcome all the newly Initiated broth
ers and thou shalt see to It that this
service Is continued until all are
within the fold.
4. Thou shalt love thy brother as
thyself and prove it by helping in
cases of need. Cultivate feelings of
mutual concern to the effect of se
curing employment cne for the other.
5. Thou shalt at all times insist
on the union rate of wnees and work
within the limit of hours prescribed

7. Thou shalt leave thy prejudices
and personal dislikes at the door and
enter the union in the true spirit of
brotherly love and a desire to serve
S. Thou shalt do thy part in the

acts and dignified support.
ISN'T IT TWE TRUTH?
You've heard about the way fugi
tive slaves used to draw a red her
ring across their tracks so as to
throw the bloodhounds off the scent?
Well, pick up an average newspaper,
and what do you find it generally dis
cussing? Is it not something about
"The Bill Board Nuisance," "Carne
gie's Munificence," "Sir Thomas Lip
ton's Visit." "The Menace of the Hat-
Din," "Pensioning Our ex Fresidents,"
"The Postoffice Deficit." and a lot
mere of such solemn piffle? all of it
ro many red herrings drawn across
ih path of progrtts. Never a word
from those alleged news dissemina
tors, and self-appointtd censors, of
what the public should know, about
the social unrest ana discontent which
find expression in syndicalism, I. W.
W'ism, socialism, bull mooseism, and
related striving for the goal of the
ages. To touch upon that subject
would "hurt business," and "Hurt
Business" would be sure to retaliate
by withdrawing its advertising from
tbe indepf-ndent-in-all-things Daily
Torn-Torn. And when it comes to a
show-down between independence and
advertising receipts, the Daily Tom-
Tom stands not upon the order of its
choosing. It's 'raus mit 'em for In

A LABOR VICTORY.
New Injunction Rule of the United
States Supreme Court.
STEP IN RIGHT DIRECTION.
Changes of Equity Procedure Conform
to Anti-injunction Demands of Trade
Unions —Restricts Granting of Tem
porary Restraining Orders.
In promulgating the first revision ol
the equity rules of federal courts in the
last fifty years the supreme court of
the l uited States prohibited the grant
lug of preliminary injunctions without
notice to the opposite party and re
stricted the granting of temporary' re
straining orders. The court embodied
in the new rule many of the points ol
the Clayton anti-injunction bill, for
which the American Federation of La
bor has been lighting, which has passed
the house aud waits In the senate. i
Instead of temporary restraining or
ders being issued without notice upon
presentation to a federal Judge of gen
era] allegations thnt immediate and Ir
reparable damage is about to be inflict
ed, the new rule requires thnt it must
be shown by specific facts set forth in
affidavits or otherwise that such dam
age will result. When a temporary re
straining order is Issued a hearing on
the injunction must be given within
ten days. Heretofore no time limit
was fixed by the rules and often not by
the courts. The court went still fur
ther and provided that those restrained
may come into court within two days
and be heard with expedition on a mo
tion to dissolve the restraining order.
The new rules do not require those pro
curing the restraining order to give a
bond or the Judge to set forth in the
order his reasons for gantlng It. These
povisions are in the Clayton bill.
The new rule on injunctions provides.
"No preliminary Injunction shall be
grouted without notice to the opposite
party nor shall any temporary restrain
ing order be granted without notice to
the opposite party unless It shall clear
ly appear from specific facts shojyn by
affidavit or by the verified bill that im
mediate aud irreparable loss or damage
will result to the applicant before the
matter can be heard on notice.
"In case a temporary restraining or
der shall be granted without notice in
the contingency specified the matter
shall be made returnable at the earliest
possible time and in no event latei
than ten days from the date of the or
der sud shall take precedence of all
matters except older matters of the
same character. When the matter
comes up for hearing the party who
obtained the temporary restraining or
der shall proceed with bis application
for a preliminary injunction, and If he
does not do so the court shall dissolve
his temporary restraining order.
"Upon two days' notice to the party
obtaining such temporary restraining
order the opposite party may appear
and move the dissolution and modifica
tion of the order, and in that event the
court or Judge shall proceed to hear
and determine the motion as expedi
tiously as the ends of Justice may re
quire Every temporary restraining or
der shall be forthwith filed In the

THE UNION LABEL.
Must Be Persistently Advertised
to Bring Success.
WHY TRADE EMBLEMS FAIL
Lack of Financial Resources to Keep
Symbol of Fair Dealing Before tho
Public Nullifies Its Potential Power.
No Need For Universal Label.
At the annual com ention of the
union label trades department of the
American Federation of Labor at
Rochester thirty eight national and in
ternational unious were represented.
In his annual report President John
V. Tobln dealt largely with the pro
posal to establish a universal union
label. He declared against a universal
label and made a forcible argument
on the subject. He said In part:
"The organizations having labels
that have been In nuy way successful
nre those that have pat behind their
label the necessary financial resources
to keep up a continuous and persist
ent campaign of advertising, and Id
proportion to the amount of adver
tising and activity behind each suc
cessful label they have become prom
inent and valuable factors in securing
Increased wages, promoting the col
lective bargain and preventing reduc
tions In wages In times of depression.
"Among the most serious obstacles
to the success of any label are the
failure of the organization owning the
label to furnish the necessary financial
resources to keep the label before the
public and the attempt to use the
label as a direct medium of exchange
for a bill of wages.
"It is my opinion that the adoption
of a label by any organization and
the tendering of the use of this label
to an employer as an Inducement tn
secure an Increase in wages or more
favorable working conditions will gen
erally meet with failure, while Ihe
organization which adopts a label and
provides the necessary financial back
ing to keep it prominently before the
public. Instead of selling a label In ex
change far a bill of wages, reduced
hours or favorable working condi
tions. will meet with success.
"If [he lulh*l Is used as a means of
securing contract relations with em
pluyers covering the plant In which the
label is used and to create a demand
for the anion label products of such
factories, thereby building up a market
for the product of the members of that
particular union and by this means es
tablishing the label as a trade factor, it
most surely results In increasing wages,
making the wages permanent and se
cure against business depressions and
furuishes the most speedy method of
building up wages aud favorable work
ing conditions. In other words, to nt
tempt to barter the label for a bill of
wages is to invite failure, while to ex
change the label for a trade agreement
la to invite nnd deserve success.
"For the reason that there is a wide
difference In the methods practiced by
the various organizations having labels
and also a wide difference in the con
ditions under which a label may be
used it Is my opinion that a universal
label would be a failure, ar-d to attempt
to Introduce It might seriously endan
ger the labels that are now success
fully well established."
Thomas F. Tracy, secretary-treas
urer, stated in his report that at tha
close of the last fiscal year thirty-eight
national and International unions were
affiliated with the department. His re
port also dealt with work that had
been done by the department in agitat
ing federation principles among organ
izations of farm laborers, told of the
Increase in the distribution of union
label products, the work of the depart
ment In distributing literature and pro
moting publicity, work for the passage
of a federal bill dealing with convict
labor which Is still pending In a sub
