Effort to Have Eastern Railroad
Men Enroute to Denver
Stop Off Here.
The Tri-City Labor congress met
yesterday in executive session to set
tle the question of employing a busi
ness agent. It was known that the
congress was almost unanimously in
favor of emploving one, but there was
a difference of opinion in regard to
the man to be chosen and the emolu
ments of the office. It was finally
settled bv the election of the presi
dent E. C. Berry. Mr. Berry will also
take charge of the Tri-City" Unionist
fortnwi'h, and returns from the paper
will partially recompense him for his
services as business agent. For the
remainder the unions sending dele
gates to the congress recently agreed
to raise the per capita tax to 2 cents a
head per month.
Mr. Berry is a thorough union man.
and while he has the cause of labor at
heart, is conservative and is capable of
conducting the paper on proper lines.
He will have editorial as well as busi
ness supervision of the publication.
Trainmen to Be Asked to Stop.
The eastern delegation to the na

get the delegation to stop here long

favorable impression of the strength
of the labor organizations in this vi
cinity. WON ON A CLOSE MARGIN.
