R^MiatlMa AdoptH iRdeniag the Appeal of (be Clerks* Calra. The weekly meeting of the Central Labor Union held last evening was largely at tended, delegates representing forty-seven of the allied unions being present. After the consideration of reports of various committees under the order of communi cations, a letter was read from John Wil liams. secretary of the Amalgamated Asso ciation of Steel, Iron and Tin Workers, acknowledging the receipt of a copy of the resolutions recently adopted by the Central Labor Union indorsing the strike of the association and tendering the moral &nd financial support of the Central Labor Union. In the communication referred to Secretary Williams expressed, "on behalf of the Amalgamated Association its most sincere thanks for kind words of assurance; also for the attitude of the Central Labor Union toward the association in its strug gle." It was decided to make a thorough <*an i vass of che local labor organizations for funds to aid the striking iron workers, and the delegates were instructed to bring the matter t? the attention of their respective unions. It was also decided to devote '1 per cent of the receipts derived from the Labor day excursion to Glen Echo to a strike fund for the association. Delegates from Columbia Typographical Union announced that at the last meeting of that organization it was decided to solicit contributions for the strikers during August, and that during September an as sessment of 1 per cent would be levied on all members whose earnings exceed $50 a month. Alleged Discrimination. The delegates from Bridge and Structural Iron Workers' Union rej^jrted that the company which is constructing the iron roofing at the Capitol building refuses to employ union iron workers. It was also stated that this discrimination is known ajid passively agreed to by those who are supervising the work. It was decided to enter a formal protest against the action of the company, and a committee, consisting of Mil ford Spohn, H. T. LeClair, John H. Brinkman. C. W. Wlnslow and William Silver, was appointed to bring the matter to the attention of those having charge of the repairs at the Capitol. The iron work ers also reported that the members of their organization throughout the United States will refuse to handle any Iron which is the product of non-union iron workers. A number of delegates who were in at tendance at the convention of the Garment Workers' Union recently held in Balti more, paid the union a fraternal visit and were accorded the privileges of the floor. The visitors were: Miss Martha Alkee, Detroit. Mich.; Miss Lizzie Riley, Bing hamton. X. Y.: Miss Zora Poore, Racine, Wis.; John Stapleton. Detroit. Mich., and F. K. Kennedy, Binghamton, X. Y. Mr. Kennedy, who is an organizer for the American Federation of Labor, spoke for the delegation. His remarks were con fined to the subject of the union label'and the support and encouragement of the label unions which is made possible by or ganized workmen of all crafts using only the products of union workmen bearing the union label. Statement of Clerks* Union. A statement and a series of resolutions submitted by the delegates from the Clerks' Union were Indorsed. The state ment recites that the Retail Clerks' Union Xo. 2t?i. has expended time and money In an effort to ameliorate the conditions that surround the men and women of their call ing. with the aid and co-operation of affil iated unions, and that their efforts have been crowned with success, as a vast num ber of stores have agreed to close at 6 o'clock every evening except Saturdav. and at 9 o'clock that evening, benefiting a large army of tired and worn-out clerks. It was further stated that while many have appreciated the untiring efforts of the Clerks' Union In their behalf, and have demonstrated their appreciation by ally ing themselves with that organization, many have refused to become members "for many alleged reasons, among which is a fear of losing their dignity in becom ing members of a trade union. "When union purchasers call for a union clerk to wait upon them." the resolutions recite, "they observe in many instances a scarcity ^of such clerks in a few stores of this city, and are compelled to wait until a union clerk is called from another de partment. A submission to this practice only entails a hardship upon union clerks while lightening the burdens of those not members of the Clerks' Union." It was therefore declared to be "the sa cred duty of every member of organized labor, as well as nil lovers of humane re form. to co-operate with the Clerks' Union in the commendable and exalted efforts to create better and healthier conditions under which the large army of their calling might live and work." AFFAIRS IX GEORGETOWN. Delay in Improvement!) on Curtis and Addition School*.

Major Sylvester, president of the Asso ciation of Police Chiefs of the United States and Canada, has submitted a propo sition to the association having for its ob ject the relief of its members, as well as widows and orphans of those who die while In the police service. It is Major Sylvester's idea that when chiefs are re moved from office for political or other reasons which do not affect their moral character the association should assist them in a substantial way until they get employment. In this connection the presi dent of the association realizes that many men who are really excellent policemen lose their positions, and In such cases their services in the same line of work may be in demand elsewhere. This, as well as the plan for assisting widows and orphans, has been approved by the board of governors, and the propositions have now been sub mitted to the Individual meqabers of the association.
