___ THE BULLETIN'S DOUBLE AGOF NE AND INTERNATIONAL U.. ,, -T,-I Domestic Labor News 1! -- - Hat Trinunmers Organizing. t New York.--A large number of small girls are employed at the rate of $8, $9 and $10 per week in the Knox hat factory at Brooklyn. This shop has been nonunion for 14 years. The United Hatters of North America and the United Felt. Pana ma and Straw Hat Trimnmers and Op orators' union are now attempting C to organize the shop. Meetings are being held, and the t shop is picketed from morning till a night in an effort to interest the workers employed there. Some prog ress is being made. The ages of the girls employed are a from 14 to 16 years. 1 These girls are not taught the en- d tire trade of hat trimming, but part of it, so that. any attempt to secure I employment as an experienced hat a trimnmer in any other factory would S be fruitless. In the busy season they receive a weekly wages, in the dull times they iI receive piece work. 'Wages are 50 per cent below the o union rates. b Even the ('ops Organize. New York.----Capitalism is struck w white with terror at the thought that si the policemen, too, are organizing. n Employers dread what may happen it in case an organized "cop"' is called a to club down a fellow worker in a 0 labor dispute. In New York the policemen per- I fected their organization quite re- is cently. The names of the officials P have not yet been made public, as ft the wrath of the police commissioner t( is feared while the organization is it in its infancy. It is known. how ever, that officers have been elected. that counsel has been engaged, and that application will soon be made if for a charter in the A. F. of L. So S far no man on the force above the is rank of sergeant has affiliated him- is self with the organization of the 'I union, but. a large majority of ser- ti geants, detectives and patrolmnen in ig Manhattan, Bronx and Brooklyn are 11 identified with the movement. 1 It is reported that the demands of 11 this new "trade" will include the 01 abolishment of the present reserve 11 system, the adoption of a straight 01 eight-hour day, and a minimum pay oi of $1,500 a year for new men, with li an increase of $100 a year until a maximum of $2,000 a year is reached. at The germ has spread over to Jer- P sey City, N.1 ., so that Director Chas. ft F. X. O'Brien of the department of Cl public safety sent a letter to the chief of police in which he said: - ---- -- F "This movement is a violation of the rules of the department, and I p direct that you make an ifivestigation I and suspend and prefer charges - against any man or mnen who may c have been interested in its promo- " tion. I am a strong advocate of or- ft ganized labor, but I do not think that c a movement of this character would benefit either organized labor or the community. The purpose of these to men is to use organized labor f,'i ti their own selfish interests. Proceed o immediately to find out the true con- II dition of the force, and report to mne. a that I may take such action as 1 may deem fit for the protection of the department. Discipline must he main tained." On Aug. 15, members of the Bos ton police force, disregarding a re cent order of Police Commissioner 5 Curtis forbidding their joining any t organization outside the departmenti except the associations of war vete- I rans, organized a union under char- I ter from the American Federation of Labor. About 1,400 members of the force I participated in the afternoon and eve ning meetings. Labor Protests Hitndu I)eportation. New York--Following in the wake of the ringing resolution of the A. F. of L. convention at Atlantic City. by which protest is made against the deportation of Hindu political refu gees who are now held in New York city, many individual labor bodies are now interesting themuselves in the Hindu deportation question. Among the unions which have re cently reported favorable action to the Friends of Freedom for India are the. following: Detroit Federation of Labor, La dies Waist and Dressmakers' union of New York.

News of the Woers.e .Iews uI L«l BUNKER HILL - SULLI VAN BUNK In a circular addressed to its em ployes by the Bunker Hill and Sulli van company of Kellogg, Ida., the following paragraph appears: '"The last census of employes taken before the war showed an average period of employment of four years and-10 months, and many employes have continued steadily for over 15 years and some for over 20 years, indicating a stability unusual in the mining industry." It will be noted there is no ref erence to what this sane census shows of the number of deaths through accidents, workers becom ing leaded, and others going down to untimely graves with the miner's "con." Wherever we find these indi cations of "a stability unusual in the mining industry," we also find low wages, long hours, the stool pigeon and other forms of the spy system, all efforts at organization in a real union discouraged by every device known to the masters and a sad lack of class consciousness and working-class intelligence on the part of the 'workers. Another paragraph in the circular reads: "During these 20 years of operation there has been a continu ous and steady improvement, not only in working conditions and in wages and hours of work, but also in the community itself, and in the homes of the employes, largely be cause of the steady employment un der good conditions and the never failing large payroll." The wages of the slaves in Kellogg will buy no more of the needs of life than tihe wages of miners in any other camp, and we would not be surprised to learn that they buy less than in many other localities. Kellogg, with all its "large payroll" and "stability of employment" is not a law. unto itself. Conditions there are more rot ten than in many other camps where the workers have organized and forced better hours, wages and work ing conditions. The wages of the miners in Kellogg will not buy enough of the fundamentals of life to allow of a decent living for the slaves and their families. DIRECT ACTION The tendency of British labor seems to be toward shelving the house of parliament and the mon I archy and placing the actual initia tion and direction of government un der an economic non-political control. The government has surrendered to the demands of the coal miners, and now the all-powerful triple al liance is preparing to use direct ac tion on behalf of purely political quest ions. 'l'hie London Daily News emits a howl and says "it. is better to be badly governed by parliament than wisely governed by trades unions," while the Morning Post warns the government that "the revolution is i making headway."

The 'painters are leading the r building trades organizations in the fight for the five-day week as be fits a radical organization. About 5,000 bricklayers are on strike for $10 a day of 8-hours work. r They were offered $8 but this was refused. The bricklayers of Browns ville led the movement to go out for a high wage. At the same time 3,000 cement workers are also on strike. PATERSON TI1LOOS WANT44 HOURS A mass meeting for the tailors of Paterson, N. J.,-- was held Sunday at the headquarters of the Amalgamat ed Textile Workers of America. Gen eral Organizer Powers was in charge. The idea of an Industrial union of tailors such as the A. C. WV. of A. has a big appeal for the Paterson workers, many of whom are Italians. The 57-hour week for bushelmen and the 54-hour week for tailors still prevails here. MINERSENJOINED Coral, Pa.-Miners employed by the Potter Coal and. Coke company organized, asked for union recogni tion and were immediately locked out. Those living in company houses were evicted. These acts failed to break the spirit of the men, and Common Pleas Court Judge Lang ham issued an iinjunction of the most sweeping character, prohibiting the unionists from interfering "in any I'wiy" with the busifiess of the comn pany.
