The other day a hungry and haggard looking man asked
another man more prosperous looking than himself, for the
price of a meal. The more prosperous looking man, being a
goodhearted man, without asking any questions, took the hungry
looking man to a restaurant and let him eat. The hungry man
did eat, and the more prosperous man paid the bill.
The hungry man stopped to be a hungry man, for a while
anyway, and was quite talkative and told the more prosperous
looking man a pitiful story of starvation. The more prosperous
looking man was not really prosperous, had been in the same
boat before and expected to be in it again. So he understood.
But what could he do? He had g»ne his limit, he could not
give the haggard looking man any hope or any job. There are
millions of haggard and starving looking men and women and
children in this world today, who are hungry.
There are many in Everett today. What is the cause and
what is the solution.
Demand the Union Label
The cause of hungry people is explained by different people
in different ways, and really it don't help much to argue about
that part—especially when people are hungry; you see, they
might die before you get through discussing the matter. And
millions already died while othec millions were discussing this
The solution is very plain; organize, educate, agitate and
always keep in mind the hungry and starving, never forget for
a moment the unfortunate who are walking the streets, who
are cast out, always keep them in your mind, never forget for
a moment and remember the other fellow about them whenever
you have a chance.
As long as there is one man, woman or child unhappy in
this great world, no matter how prosperous you might be your
self, don't be satisfied. In the meantime, do what you can to
give timely help.
Don't forget the striking Washington miners and their
kiddies this Christmas.
Demand the Union Label
There are many things in the labor movement we should
always keep in mind and never forget, here are some of the
things we should keep in mind at the present time:
Don't forget to demand the Union Label when you buy
Don't forget to attend your meetings.
Don't forget to pay your dues.
Don't forget to subscribe for your local labor paper.
Don't forget to read your labor paper.
Don't forget to attend the meetings of the Union Label
Department on Thursday night at the Labor Temple.
Don't forget to talk unionism to the other fellow who don't
belong to the union.
Don't forget to remind the slacker in the labor movement
to wake up.
Don't forget the starving and hungry.
Don't forget for a moment that you are responsible not
only for yourself, but for all your fellow man.
We can only enjoy real happiness when we know that the
other fellow is happy. Strict co-operation is the proper way
to reach our goal.

UNION LABEL DEPARTMENT
The Union Label Department has a committee working to
get out a pamphlet which will serve as a Union Label guide for

articles bearing the label and give further information about

be bought and where union men and women are employed.
The Labor Journal will have a whole page of advertising
and other information in regard to the union label starting in
January, on this page all merchants will have advertised their
lines of articles bearing the union label.

OUT OF WORK
By William F. Kirk
I'm out of work and it's Christmas time;
The rent is due and I haven't a dime,
The landlord has been a pretty good sport,
Better, I guess, than most of his sort,
But he's after me now, and he made it clear
That we'll have to go the first of the year.
There isn't a thing in the house to eat
Or a pair of shoes for the youngster's feet.
Look for work? What is that you say?
I have looked at night and I've tramped all way.
I have stubbed around in this roaring town
Till I cursed the fellows that turned me down.
I'm out of work and it's Christmas time,
And I feel like a man that would stoop to crime.
I hate to go to the flat, you see,
Where the wife and kid are waiting for me.
The wife will know when she sees my face
That I haven't been able to find a place.

labor gets twenty-five cents of every dollar taken in by this en

(Biography of Everett Unionists During Their Lives)
One of the most popular men in organized labor cir
cles in Everett one can find him in every meeting of im
portance, always active, quick witted and willing to be of
service all the time. He is particularly fitted for execu
tive and the fact that he is serving his seventh term in
the highest office a union man can attain in any city,
namely President of the Central Labor Council, provee it.
Brother Moncur was born in Scotland, September 8,
1868, and came to the United States in August, 1886.
He joined local union No. 35 of the United Associa
tion of Plumbers and Steamfitters in St. Louis in 1892,
came to Everett in 1909 and worked at his trade till Oc
tober 8, 1918, when he was appointed City Plumbing In
spector, which position he held till last September.
He has been recording secretary of the Plumbers'
Local Union for years, but is not at present.
Brother Moncur is secretary of the Board of Control
of the Labor Journal and stock holding member of the
Everett Trades Building Association.
Asked to Fight
The International Labor Confer
ence, now in session in Geneva,
Switzerland, at which the repre
sentatives of 39 governments and
the workers' and employers' organi
zations of those countries are repre
sented, will probably adjourn sine
die Friday evening, November 18th,
according to cabled information re
ceived at the Washington office of
the International Labor Office.
Early in the conference the ques
tion of prohibition of the use of
white lead in painting was referred
to a commission which was to study
the subject and prepare a report to
the conference. This commission has
now returned a majority report op
posing the prohibition of the use of
vhite lead in painting, and stating
that it is the opinion of the commis
sion that the prohibition is not nec
essary in the interests of the paint
ers, nor desirable in the interests of
users or producers of white lead.
The commission recommended a
draft convention for the regulation
of the use o f white lead in painting,
such as measures for avoiding danger
from dust in dry scraping, dangers
of spraying with white lead pig
ments, provision of adequate washing
facilities for those using white lead
A minority report was also pre
sented by members of the commis
sion, which calls for the complete
rrohibition, or at least for the pro
hibition in interior work, of the use
of white lead in painting.
The question of the disinfection of
wool infected with anthrax spores,
which appears on the agenda of the
conference, has been disposed of by
the unanimous adoption of a resolu

tion to refer this question to a spe
cial committee to be appointed by
the governing body of the interna

suggested in the resolution that the

that "the International Labor Con
ference is of the opinion that the
