London, Feb. 4.—England's new
system of labor exchange, by which
it is hoped greatly to ameliorate the
country's menacing problem of unem
ployment, were put in operation to
day for the first time.
SEE! SEE! SEE!
Exchanges were opened in various
places throughout England and so
much is expected of them that the
press generally refers to the movs
ment as an epoch in England's in
The exchanges will try to bring the
joib and the jobless together. Every
exchange is provided with a record,
prepared with unusual care, of the
firms and industrial plants in Eng
land where employes are needed, and,
also, of the number and location of
the unemployed in England, with
their peculiar fitness to certain kinds
The scheme marks the' first organ
ized attempt in England to solve the
question of providing work for the
thousands who are idle. The ex
changes are counted on to save the
unemployed the expense of searching
for work where it is already known
that no work exists.

Three Score Years and—?
(Samuel Gompers was 60 years old January 27, 1910. He b£gan working
at the age of 8, and at 14 organized the first cigar makers' union.)
Your youthtime was no playtime, your laugh time almost tears,
Your school time was a work time thus passed your childtime years
Yours was a life of stern pursuit in'which was little joy
And to you is due all honor that grim, duty did not cloy.
'Tis many years that you have lived, tho' numbered but three score,
And many hearts are washing you will pass as many more,
For, man, you've lived just such a life as makes for higher: things,
Youre is the Example'round which inspiration clings.
Three soore years are many to at pilgrim on life's road,
He finds a lot to fancy, and he finds a lot to goad,
You've tasted,of the rosemary and you've tasted-of the ru$
And you've plucked the thorns and blossoms which along the roadside
You've seen the clouds grow heavy and you've seen them pass away,
And you've helped to make the rainbow bless the children of today.
And if you've builded better than even you could know
It's because you knew the pinch'yourself in days of long ago
You've made the pathway brighter for the children yet unborn,
You've planted for them roses where your fingers found a thorn!
The world is richer that you've lived, knowing naught of fear,
And the cause of labor's richer that your playdays were -so drear!
May many years yet number you among the loyal clan
For we'll miss you when you go we'll miss you—miss you, man!

Refus/es to Indorse Ban on Meat
"Urged by Label League—Elec
tricians Withdraw From Local
The Trades and Labor Assembly at
its regular meeting last Friday eve
ning .failed to indorse the meat boy
The matter was discussed vigorously
at length but the concensus of opin
ion was that no end would be served
by such action.
It is regarded generally among the
workers of Duluth that a boycott on
meat would only serve to place a
hardship .on those meat dealers who
cater to the working trade and would
possibly be the means of throwing
many out of employment if continued.
At the meeting all officers were
present, except Trustee Ja^ies Walsh,
and Sergeant at Arms Thomas
The delegates reported the condi
tion of their respective trades as fol
lows: Blacksmiths, Carpenters, Elec
tricians, Musicians, Steam Engineers,

SAYS WELFARE PUN
WILL IE FOUGHT AS
Cleveland, p., Feb. 4.—W. H. Jen
kins,. of Connea'ut, one of the leaders
of the seamen in the 1909 strike on
the Great Lakes, shows the deter
mination of the men in the following
terms. He says:
"There appears to be,, among the
seariien of the Great Lakes, a well
defined opinion that the season of
1910 is fated to be another period of
struggle against the Shipping Federa
tion 'welfare' plan.
"The members of the lake unions
are not any nearer to being 'fooled'
by that word now than they were in
May, 1909. In fact, we are growing
more and more distrustful of- it and
all its champions. The scab shipping
master never did sit very well on our
stomachs, any .way,, and he is now
simply intolerable. He will have to
go. The 'continuous discharge book,"
the 'scab, shipping hall' and all their
dirty accessories will have to give way
tq the union halls, the union books
and union hours and wages.
"It is the old story of the loaded
camel. That last straw was too much,
and we are not going to carry it.
"We are not only not going to carry
that straw, but we are now going to
dump the whole load! We are going
to live as otheir .men live. We are go
ing to take the freedom that was
given the negro slave. We, the white
slaves, will take what our owner and
our government deny us, the right to
quit work in safe harbor, the right to
enter employment in our o^n way, to
ship as union, men if we please, to
ship as free men or we will, never

Paris, Feb. 4 -i—The dressmakers'
employes are carrying on a lively agi

union through which they hope to ob
tain an amelioration of the miserable
conditions underwhich they work.
Jean Allemane, -one of the leaders
of the Socialist party in the chamber
of deputies, addressed a- big meeting
of the seamstresses •in the Bourse du

organize a Union fit once.
.The grocery clerks are -keeping up
their agitation for the observance of
the law guaranteeing all workers a
