It seems that tfaere isn't a week
that can roll by without the police
being called to take a hand in af
fairs at the Atlas Hotel. On last
Saturday afternoon Joseph B.
Daugherty, who says he is a inol
der employed a* the Niles Tool
Works Company, signed a warrant
in the municipal court for James
Ward, a guard, charging him with
pssault. Both men board at the
Atlas Hotel and got into a quarrel
during which Ward ejected Daugh

The warrant was placed in the
hands of Officer Wm. Tully who
placed Ward under at rest. Ward
was placed under a $200 bond for
his appearance in court on Monday
evening. Agustus Wood signed the
When the time set for the hear

against Ward was dismissed.
It seems unless the police get the

no chance of prosecution whatever
Giving the devil his dues that gang
certainly does stick together.

The Letter Of Reverend
Forrest L. Frazer.
The letter of Rev. Forfeit L.
Frazer in which he gives his, views
of the local situation, and pub
lished in one of the evening papers
certainly has the right ring to it.
He says
"Hamilton like every other
city has its knockers, that so
many Hamiltonians 'knock*
*their own city. That 'knock
ing' becomes a habit, but it is
very possible to develop the
habit of boosting.' The un
fortunate thing, however, is
that one 'knocker' can do
enough damage to keep ten
'bopsters' busy."
He speaks of our beautiful parks,
miles and miles of paved streets,
our excellent churches, schools,
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.

brary and many other things that
we may point to with pride.
He praises very much the work
of the Hamilton Commercial and
Industrial Association, he says:
"I believe the idea and ideal
to th's movement is just what
Hamilton needs."
Mr. Frazer pays marked tribute
to our great industries and fac
tories and then says:
"Bu* we would do a real in
justice if we were to neglect
to speak of that loyal eighty
per cent that make up the mas
cle and sinew of our city, and
who respond so nobly, the
great majority of them, to
every civic, religious, indus
trial and patriotic appeal."
He then says: "Let Hamil

Notice how h# touches on every
phase of the situation and how
delicately he does so, giving flense
to none and credit to all. But after
reading it over carefully we can't
help feeling but that what the
Reverend would like to say and say
it in just a few words is this: "For

Buffalo, N. Y. Nov. 23.—With
out a dissenting vote the Ameri
can Federation of Labor on Nov.
20th, reaffirmed its unswerving loy
alty to the country and a determin
afion to stand behind the national
administration until peace comes.
The pacifist element, which mus
tered a small minority against Pre
sident Gomper's attitude of the war
was silent.
The resolution containing the
declaration was reported favorably
by the resolutions committee. It
was sweeping in scope. The course
pursued by President Gompers in
calling a conference of the national
and international officers of the fed
eration at Washington on March
12 was approved and all his subse
quent actions and tho e of the Ex
ecutive Council with reference to
the war were concurred in.
The pacifists declared that they
were unaware that the resolution
was to come up Tuesday. They
made no move for a reconsidera
tion, however, and it was pointed
out that while their fight of Mon
day was based on a vote of confi
dence in President Gompers, Tues
day'h resolution calltd f®r a declar
ation on a clear-cut question of
loyalty to the country.

A committee was appointed with
instructions to report to the present
convention the possibility of con

gested by Mr Pinshot.
The only resolution that caused
extended debate related to the or
ganization of negro labor. It was
submitted by delegate Murphy of
San Francisco, and embodied in its
preamble a resolution adopted by
the International Negro League
and presented t® the San Francisco
Labor Council for indorsement.
The Negro League's resolution
specifically referred to the "South
em States" as the scenes of wrongs
inflicted upon the race.
The Resolutions Committee re

no responsibility for th* statements
in the preamble of the Murphy res

Election To Be Held Monday,
December 3d.
Butler Aerie No. 407, Fraternal
Order of Eagles held largely at
tended meeting Monday evening.
Much routine business was trans
acted and a large amount paid out
for sick benefits. The pctatoe com
mittee reportea that they have 71
bushels of potatoes stored away in
the cellar, these are to be given
out to widows of Eagles. The
dance committee reported the pro
fits of the last three dances and
were wrrmly applauded when the
results were made nown.
The following nominations for
fliers were made.
Worthy President, Carl Lelitt
Worthy Vice President, Chas.

Worthy Chaplain, Geo. Troy
and Ernest Schrichte.
Financial Secretary, Wm. Wil

Aerie Physicians, (two to be
elected) Dr. Henry Krone and Dr.
C. T. Hull.
The election will be held on
Monday, December 3d, between the
hours of 3 and 8 p. m., under the
Australian system. It is expected
that all the politicians and their
hangers-on will be sneaking around
the Eagles temple on the day of the
election to get an idea how to con
duct a campaign and election sys
tematically. The Eagles always
have a hot election and from the
gum shoing and pussy-tooting to
be observed by one who is keeping
close to the situation it's a safe bet
that the late wet and dry and the
mayor's election won't be in it with
t.i:s one
the Eagles.
