Women. CLOSER ALLIANCE IS URGED
Mrs. Raymond Robins of Chicago
Presides at Morning Session and
Deliver Stirring Address.
This (morning's session of .the Illi
nois State federation of Labor con
vention at Industrial hall was devoted
entirely to the work of the women in
labor circles throughout . the state.
Addresses were given by a number of
workers and members of the Trades'
Union "Women's League of Illinois.
Mrs. Raymond Robins of Chicago, who
Is. president of the ileague, was chair
man of the meeting and Miss Eliza
beth Maloney acted as secretary.
In opening the meeting Mrs. Robins
made a few remarks (apropos of the
situation in Illinois at the present
time. She said: "There is just one
way at the present time to do away
with underbidders or low wage earn
ers, and that is through organization.
This is the important question of the
hour in the industrial world, and we
must work together to remedy it. The
industrial movement will not be right
ed unless men and women work to
gether. The present, industrial laws
react with greater force upon women
than upon men, for they are the un
derbidders in the market. The under
bidder or low -wage earner should be
don away with. ' Mrs. Robins Is an
Interesting and forceful , speaker, and
her brief address was well received.
Campalsa for lO-Hour Law.
Miss Elizabeth Maloney was the
next (speaker. She read a telegram
from JMIss Mary McDowell, who is at
Elgjn, and who was unable to attend
the meeting because of illness. A tel
egram, of sympathy was eent to .Miss
McDowell upon motion of one of the
federation delegates. .Miss Maloney's
address included an explanation of the
Gompalgn which has been inaugurated
to ibring about amendments to the
present 10-hour law at the next regu
lar session of the legislature. She
told of the work which had already
been accomplished to further the cam
paign, phe stated that it was the de
sire to include all the women workers
everywhere in .this amendment, and
that in order to secure such legisla
tion there would necessarily be a bit
ter fight with the employers. The roll
call of the vote, of the legislature two
years ago, when such legislation was
up for consideration, will he publish
ed in pamphlet form and will be cir
culated among theoters of the state.
Other speakers were Miss Mariou
MeShea. business agent of the Straw
and Felt Hat Workers, Chicago; Miss
Mary Haney, delegate to the conven
tion from the United Garment Work
ers' union, Chicago; Miss Anna Wil

Resolution ! Concurred In.
As the meeting of this morning was
conducted by the Women's league and
had to do with the amendment to the
10-hour-law, a resolution which was
handed by the representatives of the
league to the Federation of Labor
resolutions committee was acted upon.
It is as follows:
Whereas, The Increasing volume
and pressure of work upon women
wage earners and the increasing defi
nite knowledge of the disastrous ef
fects of overstrain and long hours
upon women's health and motherhood,
Show the urgent necessity for limit
ing the hours of women's work; and.
Whereas, The 10-hour law, enacted
by the legislature of the state of Illi
nois applying to women employed in
laundries, factories and mechanical es
tablishments has been held constitu
tional by the supreme court of the
Whereas, There still remain In the
state thousands of women in other
occupations unaffected by this law, but
who are equally in need of such pro
Whereas, We believe that organized
men and women who have power be
cause of organization to contract col
lectively for their labors and that the
organizations standing for social bet
terment are bound to secure protec
tion for their weaker sisters and to
demand that the state secure for all
women that which will safeguard the
health of workers and welfare of fu
ture generations; and,
Whereas, We, the Trades Union Wo
men f Illinois, in convention assem
bled at Federation hall, 175 La Salle
street, Chicago, on Sept. 11, 1910, vot
ed to work for an amendment to pre

HIGH COST OF
THE TARIFF AND TRUST TWINS
In a vigorous and illuminating report the minority members of the
senate committee, appointed to ascertain the cause of the high cost of
living, take issue with the republicans and declare thr.t the tariff, trusts
and combinations are chiefly responsible for Irish prices. Among other
x things the report says:
"The Payne-Aldrich bill took broom corn from the free list and
..made it dutiable at $3 per ton. Thereupon the price to the consumer
advanced $1.20 per dozen brooms, the tariff being represented by about
one-fifth of a cent and the graft by Sl.U 4-5, the consumer being the
"In all the United States there were 5 per cent of the people direct
ly financially interested in maintaining the exorbitant tariff on woolen
goods land perhaps less than 1 per cent of this 5 per cont got 95 per cent
of the spoils beyond a living, and yet every citizen must have woolen
garments and blankets.
"We doubt not that every increase in cost of those goods has added
its thousands of victims to the silent tenants of the cemeteries and
graveyards; yet every effort to reduce even the most prohibitory du
ties bo as to permit every American citizen to be warmly clad at a rea
sonable cost was persistently voted down.
"This discrimination in favor of the rich and against the poor was
distinctly pointed out to the senate while the Payne-Aldrich hill was
under consideration. It was shown that raw silk was admitted free of
duty and the manufactured artTcfe averaged only 55 per cent, while a
duty of 135 per cent was laid on woolen or worsted cloths valued at not
more than 40 cents per pound, an article largely in use by a vast num
ber of our people.
"Champagne was put on the schedules at from 54 to C6 per cent
while wearing apparel was taxed from 80 to 92 per cent. Drinking
champagne was to be encouraged and wearing woolen clothes discour
aged. So with hats, those bringing not over $4.50 per dozen were taxed
77 per cent and those valued at more than $13 per dozen 47 per cent.
"The result of protection is great fortunes for the few and great suf
fering for the many. We believe that the amount of the tariff is added
to the price and taxed to the consumer; that but for theriff the com
modities we ;buy upon which the tax Is laid would be cheaper, approxi
mately to the extent of the tariff; and that when we do not buy the
imported article the protected manufacturer puts approximately the
amount of it on the goods produced by him." ' ,
Taking up the subject of trusts, combinations and monopolies, they
declare that "there are few trusts that could survive a revenue tariff.
They flourish only under the shadow of high protective walls. Stand
ing behind those walls that shut off foreign competition, and destroy
ing domestic competition by consolidations and absorptions, they are
limited only to selling at a fraction less than the foreign price plu3 the

WORMIAN LOSES A THUMB
Dan Wolfe Gets Hand Caught Under
Steam Drop at Factory.
Dan Wolfe, a young man employed
at the Rock Island Plow company's
blacksmith shop, met with an acci
dent last night which resulted in the
loss of the thumb on the left hand.
Wolfe was at work on a steam drop
when In some way his hand was
caught under the hammer as it fell.
The thumb was smashed and had to
be amputated at once. He was re
moved to St. Anthony's hospital in
the ambulance. His home is in Pe
oria but he is rooming at 511 Third
street in this city. He came here
two weeks ago to work at the Plowshop.

chairman of the audriing committee of
the Illinois state federation has been
the greatest surprise of the conven
tion. The auditing committee was select
ed during a business session. Miss
Maloney was placed in nomination by
a male delegate who made a plea for
woman's suffrage and for recognition
of the women present in the conven
tion. This speech, added to Miss Ma
loney's personal popularity with down-
state as well as Chicago delegates, won
the day for her. She received the vote j
of 170 delegates, the largest vote cast;
for any one member of the committee
which Fhe heads. There were on!y
200 voting delegates in the convention
at the time. Despite the fact that a
woman is chairman the male element
is in the majority on the committee,
its other members being Delegate Sul

"Jim Haley," who has spent more

For Conservative Vnionlsm.
Robert E. Cleveland is one of the
14 representatives of Chicago Typo-
graphical union, No. 16, in attendance,
Mr. Cleveland is an employe of the
Chicago Tribune and figures with con-
siderabie prominence in the councils
of union No. 1G. He declares that, in
j his opinion, the typographical union is
the strongest and most conservative
union in North America. He advocates
conservative unionism. He said: "The
employer is always a business man.
You have feot to use business methods
in dealing with him. Business meth
ods are conservative methods. You
can't use radical methods. The em
ployer won't stand for them."
There are delegates in attendance
from every good-sized city and town
in the state. Every union, from the
bartenders' to the printers', is repre
sented. Among the delegates is Misj
Anna Willard of Chicago, who played
a prominent role during the barten
ders' and waitresses' convention last

E. N. Noeckels, secretary of the
Chicago Federation of Labor, arrived
yesterday afternoon and is working
among the delegates in an effort to
have President Wright's report con
demned and to have Simon O'Donnell
elected president. The delegations
have been carefully canvassed, and it
is assorted that at least two-thirds are
with Wright, both on his compensa
tion law and to succeed himself as
Politics, which was wont to play an
important part in previous conven
tions, seems to be tabooed. Resolu
tions which have been submitted so
far are of a character that, will not pro
voke much discussion. One of the res
olutions calls upon the legislature to
make a larger appropriation for the
factory inspection department, so that
laws Intended to protect the workers
may be more rigidly enforced. .
Finn for Rrform.
The Aurora delegation has come to
the convention primed with resolutions
; to be presented to the convention In
which they ask the state federation to
sanction some reform plans. The
first of those resolutions provides that
the legislature be asked to pass a law
providing that all prisoners confined
in the state penitentiaries be paid a
daily wage, and that this wage go to
the support of the families dependent
on themand that It be used to provide
the convict with a means of support
when he Is released from prison. They
have fixed the wage at not less than
15 cents a day. The other resolution
provides for the suggestion that a uni
form text book law be enacted In the
Golden for Delegate.
George F. Golden of the Chicago
Packing Hou?e Teamsters union will
probably be chosen for delegate to the
convention of the American Federation
Mayor G. W. McCaskrin Is dally min
gling with the delegates. He has been
distributing his autograph.
Wells is on the Job there in the ab
sence of C. J. Smith, and Jim was led
before him. Jim's word3 and manner
conveyed the impression that he was
in need of a place to rest up from the
succession of Jags which he has had
since getting out of jail the last time,
and accordingly he was sentenced to
15 days in the county bastlle. Jim was
already and anxious to go at once, so
anxious In fact that he did not want to
wait for a constable to show up in or
der to take charge of him and conduct
him to Jail. He told the magistrate that
he knew the way, and that he was In a
hurry(to get there, whereupon the com
mitment papers were given to him
and he set out.
' Takea Self to Jail.
The sign over the Turner hall sa
loon attracted his attention, and he
wandered off the straight and narrow
path to jail long enough to stop in and
partake of a free lunch, after which he
continued his way. Walking into the
Bherift'a office he presented himself to
Deputy Walter Kittilsen and handed
him the commitment papers with the
words, "Here I is." An examination
of the papers showed that Jim was en
titled to a 15-day stay at the Hotel de
Kittilsen, and he was taken over and
locked up. He is in a very bad way
from over-indulgence in drink, and it
will take some time for him to get
sobered up completely.
Three Weary Willies who were
rounded up by the police last night
and placed In the station for safe keep
ing until this morning were ordered to
"beat it" out of the city as fast as they
could when arraigned before the police
magistrate. All the hoboes decided to
vamoose rather than risk going to Jail
for a month, and despite the light cold
rain which was falling they cheerfully
set out on their way.
