fore us the sorry spectacle of the recent ection
of the iloston Central Labor union in adopting
a resolution which calls oi organie(Litabor to
oppose the passage of the ilobson-Sheppard bill
for natlon-wide prohibition of the liquor traffic.
This central labor union, which represents the
Dentralized authority and speaks for the feder.

tetion squarely on the ground that the abolition

hrow a large number of laborers out of em.

sait by which the whiskey trust, the brewery I

It is the most cruelly selfish appeal that was
