Dutcher, R. J. Coole and Henry Pereftult. Mr. McEwen, in a communication to the assembly several weeks ago., broached the proposition of forming a local branch, but action was post poned, while Secretary Dutcher was instructed to obtain full particulars from the alliance officers. Last Fri day night -a communication was re-, ceived from Secretary Morrison, ex plaining the objects and purposes of the organization, including a copy of the declaration of principles. With but one dissenting vote, the delegates voted to launch a local branch. It is expected that a report on the progress of the movement will be made at the next meeting of the assembly. The delegates from the Carpenters' and Painters' unions stated that the Bowman Construction company was erecting a building at First avenue East and First street, and requested the appointment of a committee to interview the contractor and endeavor to secure a union agreement on the work.

Mr. Whitney outlined briefly the re sults of the various general commit tee meetings in St. Paul and Minne apolis where he has been assigned by the grand lodge to assist fche commit tee on the Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Minneapolis and St. Louis, "Omaha" and Soo lines. He charged the members present with the import ance of careful consideration- and preparation of all grievances to avoid embarrassment of the committees handling grievances and the necessity of faithful observance of the laws of both the railways and the brother hood. The vice president also outlined agreements recently entered into with nearly all western raijrqads, where the seniority rights" of the members of the brotherhood who are now or will be called upon for military or naval service will be protected. This ruling was agreed to by the various managements and will automatically reinstate them to their former posir tions at the close of the war or upoii being honorably discharged. Mr. Whitney in conclusion admon ished the members to perform their duty to their employers and the brotherhood fearlessly, intelligently and with the high degree of integrity that the brotherhood teaches, remem bering always the "Golden Rule," "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
