In Business Life 1
the help a young man derives from a bank account is
simply Immeasurable.
Young man, don't look upon this as a trifle. Don't look
upon anything as a trifle-and therefore, undeserving
of careful attention.

really trifles, but only apparently so.
It may seem a trifle whether you have a bank account or'
not. It is not a trifle.
hEvery employer has more confidence, and will give more re.
sponsible employment to the man or boy who saves-
who has a bank account. Moreover, the dollars you
fritter away do you no good Your dollars in our
bank are pushing you nearer to independence every
Trade Unions and Politics.
One of the prominent questions in
the minds of trade unionists, both in
Great Britain and in the United
8tates, Is that of increased labor re.
presentation in government The s
conditions which have forced this d
subject to the front have been quite I
similar in both cases. In Great t
Britain it has been the decision of '
the highest judicial court upon the '
liability of unions for the acts of P
t eir members in time of strike or
prosecution of a boycott. Altho the s'
unions are not incorporated, the P
court holds that their funds are liable
for damages to practically the same U
extent as tho they were incorported.
They are no longer able to escape ei
responsibility for injury to an em. w
ployer on the plea which they have
hitherto considered their main safe e
guard, the non legal character of i'
their organization. This new posf
tion in the eyes of the law requires g
new definitions as to the acts of their
members in order to declare what re
acts are legal and what are not legal.
The point of greatest danger to them
la in the posasble prohibition of pick.
eting. In .nearly all strikes it is
necessary for the union to station St
pickets about the establishment of hi
their former employer with the object to
of keeping away workmen who are pa
about to take their places. If, ae
through judicial Interpretation, pick- in
sting is prohibited, the strike, as a mi
weapon of unionism, is destined to ye
failure. Ocly legislation can check so
the courts, and this can be done only be
by defning just how far picketing tU
may lawfully be carried. With this ca
in view, the British unionists are me
seriously considering the increase of tie
their representation in Parliament to El
sixty or seventy Members. They ha
have a National Labor Represents. Tib
tion Committee, which has recently tr3
held its third annual congress. This
committee represents trade unionists, a I
trade councils, the Independent La. tra
bor party and the Fabian Society, sp
including, it is said, a membership of eel
450,000. This membership is much Sti
les than that of all the trade unions 18
In Great Britain, but the congress
has this year aroused more interest me
than before on account of the legal to
decision above mentioned. frc
In the UniteL Sates the Interest of ful
unionists in legislation is aroused by twi
injunctions. Injunctions have been tio
carried so far se even to prohibit U!
persuasion, on the ground that, con- Th
sidering all the circumstances of pie
picketig, persuasion may be carried fro
so far as to become a nuisance. This the
interference of the courts by sum ant
mary process In case of strikes quite lete
naturally attracts unionists to the sac
question of controlling the judiciary, you
either by electing judges favorable to Ge
them, or by enacting laws restricting der
the use of injunction in labor dis. thr
pates. But it is not as easy for the
unionists to elect members to legisla. arc
tures and Congress as it is for the Tht
British unionists to elect members of bei
Parliament The attempt in times hai
past has also been disastrous to the one
unions themselves. The American ant
Federation of Labor at several ano Tht
anal conventions has voted against her
political action by the subordinate Thu
organizations, altho it has always last
ldorsed the independent action in hol
politics of unionists as individuals in for
behalf of labor interests. It is this too
policy of unionism on "pure and aim tha
pie' economic lines that has aroused kce
the hostility of the Socialist labor witi
party sad has ledlto some cases to not
the succsession of Socialist unions. witJ
One wing of the Socialist party, how. tacd
ever, stands by the trade unions and kee
adopts tke policy of working within gan
the unions for political ends rather osti
than without the unions. Whatever evei
the result of these moovements inside keel
the ranks of organized labor, it is sucl
significant that in the spring elections taba
of this year a number of cities hate thel
broken sway froee the two older edll
parties and have elected unionist. on wee

traction company. This turned on groi
the attitude of the Mayor in ordering clo
tbe police to srrest all rersons carry. foile
ing arms, including those hired by Tb
the traction company to protect their inte
rrona.union alotormen and conductors, to h
rIte contrast between this attitude of witi
ihe labor Mayor and that of the pre. attc
teding Mayor, whose police officers tha
land even helped to break a sy mpa est,

onists all over the countsy. In fact, of i
