CENTRAL LABOR UNION
AMALGAMATED ASSOCIATION AC
KNOWLROOBS OFFER OP AID.
R^MiatlMa AdoptH iRdeniag the
Appeal of (be Clerks*
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
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
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."

Owing to some unforeseen difficulties the
construction of the new heating and toilet

POLICE CHIEFS* PENSIONS.
MaJ. Sylvester Submit* a Proposition
to the A??oclatlon.
Major Sylvester, president of the Asso

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
