C: Dear Sir and Brother Attached hereto you will find copy of com munication which I today addressed to John R. Alpine, seventh vice-president of the American Federation of Labor. This communication carries with it certain specific charges borne out by copies of telegrams, etc., and setting forth in full the attitude of Mr. Alpine in respect to the very important matter having to do with the general welfare of the International Printing Pressmen and Assistants' Union, as well as the printing trades unions in general. I ask that this matter be taken up by the executive council and an im mediate investigation made and action taken which will properly rebuke Mr. Alpine for his position in respect to an affiliated union with the A. F. of L. and relieve him, if the charges I made are found true, of his further service as the vice-president of the American Federation of Labor. , This is a mattr of far reaching importance in which the well being of the entire labor movement of this country is, to a very marked degree, ef fected. Prompt, positive and decisive action is therefore required and de manded. Fraternally yours, George L. Berry, President.
