Labor Congress Will Protest
Forming of Central Body
ACT IS ONE OF 8EOESSI03I
President Samuel Gompera of Na
tional A. P. of Lt. Asked to
The central organization of labor
unions recently formed in Davenport
to supplant, so far as that city is
concerned, the Tri-City "Labor Con
gress, will not be permitted to be
come a duly qualified central body
with a charter from the American
Federation of Labor.
The action of the Davenport labor
organization amounts, to a secession,
as the charter of the congress covers
that city, and in order to obtain an
other charter the new body must
have the consent, of the congress.
This the latter has decided to with
hold and to forward to President
(Jompcrs, of the A. P. of L., a protest
against issuing such an instrument.
For Laltel league
A plan was adopted at yesterday's
meeting of the congress for the form
ing of a Women's Label league, the
movement for which was begun by
Organizer A. E. Ireland. The plan en
tails considerable work on the part
of the business agent. It will be the
duty of the latter to place In the
hands -of each union in the three cit
ies blank applications for member
ship, in the proposed league. These
are. to be taken home by the mem
bers of the unions to be filled out by
the wives, mothers and sisters. Then
they are to be returned to the officers
of the unions, from whom the busi
ness agent will collect them. A meet
ing for the purpose of organizing will
be called in due time and the appli
cants for membership will be noti
fied. -The linemen in the employ of the
Central Union Telephone company
reported to the congress that a diffi
culty had been, met with in negotia
ting terms with that concern, .the
latter refusing to sign an agreement
to employ none but union labor. The
matter was placed in the bands of
the business agent to interview the
local representatives of the company
New I'nlona Formed.
A report was made showing that
the work of organizing new unions
is going on apace. There are seven
applications for charters to be for
warded from the tri-cities this week.
In this connection the congress in
structed the secretary to communi
cate with President (Jumpers, of the
A. Ft of L., expressing appreciation of
the work that -Mr. Ireland has done
here. Mr. Ireland is now working in
cities and towns in this vicinity, but
will return ti this field.
W. II, Allum, financial secretary,
submitted his resignation, stating as
a reason for doing so that he had
heard complaints from certain quar
ters on the ground that the barbers
and harnessmakers are holding all the
offices. The congress, however, vot
ed unanimously to refuse to accept
the resignation and in addition pass
ed a vote of thanks for the officials
for the efficient services they are

Dandruff cannot be cured by scour
