At the conclusion of tbe famous globe
encircling cruise of our battleship fleet,
we were told in glittering phrases of
the splendid condition of tbe ships. They
were ready for instant service, etc. Now
era! bear that they are practically wrecks,
and must undergo extensive repairs if
they are -ver to bo depended upon again.

JUst i word with our local unions:
frY have ■ ied since we took hold of this
.publication to make it tnorc readable
and interesting. We are conceited
enough to believe we have bettered it
to some extent but « C arc far from sat
isfied yet. We want the news—right
hot off the bat—of your local meetings I
and anything that may be interesting'
concerning the doing- of your individual
members. Now, 'lure is a whole lot]
of good stuff never reaches our ears that'
you know about. Tell it to us. It
isn't too much to ask that each union
appoint i press committee whose duty
it shall be to furnish the Journal with
craft items or contribute in any way
they see fit to its columns. Will you do
that t Take up the matter at your next
meeting.
Assictant .Secretary of War Oliver,
has made a recent ruling very obnoxious
to the American Federation of Musicians
and considerable adverse comment has
been made. A certain dancing academy
in Seattle which refused to hire union
musicians asked for and obtained tbe
services of two players from the U. S.
army stationed at Fort Lawton. The
matter was taken np by the Musicians'
I'nion and finally reached the Assistant
•Secretary of War. It might be stated
that the Wnr Depuri ment docs not recog
nize the union and musicians employed
in regular army bands are subject strict
ly to army rule., and regulations It had
l>een understood, however, and we believe
en order issued to the effect that mus
icians enlisted in the V. S. army should
not compete again*) civilian musicians
for any outside functions or entertain- ]
ments for less than the union scale of
wages or against union regulations. In
this case, however. Secretary Oliver ruled
that the arm;. D tsi ians were not com- :
peting against civilians because the danc
ing academy asked for their services nnd
would not hire union men. We fail
to see much justice in this decision. It
amounts to thi-: that the military forces
are to be used with full consent of the
government to break if possible, the un
ion. It is worse than an open shop pro
position because under open shop rules
the employer claims not to discriminate
between union or non union men. In
this case union men were barred from
working and the employer finding that
he could not get enough non-union men
to complete bis orchestra called on gov
ernment miisi ians and they went to
work for him. It is plain to be seen then
that if all places of amusements re
fused to hire union musicians and the
government allowed musicians from the
regular army to step in that tbe union
would be speadily put out of business.
It would be no worse for the govern
ment to furnish strike breakers from the
regular army in case of a strike. The
ultimate result to the union is the same
in either case.
Give a copy of the Journal to your
non-union friend and ask him to sub-1
scribe for tilie pajwr that stands square
ly for the interests of the man who
tolls.

THE LABOR MOVEMENT IN EUROPE
I. The Organization of Trades Union,
ists.
(Py tbe Rev. ( harlei Stelale.)
Organized labor throughout tbe world j
is about 0,000.000 strong. The trades
unionists in Great Britain, according to
tin- moat recent figures, have a total
membership of 2.100,000, of which num
ber 150,000 are women. It is estimated
that 33 per cent of the workers in (ireat
Britain arc connected with the trades
unions. There are practically four divi
sions among the organized workingmen
affiliated with the British Trades Con
gress, consisting, first, of about 700,000
in the General Federation of Trades
Unions (which is composed of 134 na
tional organizations, and who are, for
the most part, skilled workers,) 500,00
miners. 115,000 members of tbe Railway
Servant's Societies, and about 700,000
general workers and laborers who are not
affiliated with tbe General Federation.
The organized workingmen in England
arc represented in their political and gen
eral activities in what is known ns the
"Joint Board" which is composed of four
members each from the following bodies:
first, the Parliamentary Committee
(consisting of the Executive Committee
of the British Congress;) second, the
General Federation of Trades Unions;
third, the Labor Party, which is the dis
tinotively political organization of the
trades unionists. This Joint Board out
lines the policies of tbe workingmen and
unifies their activities. Mention should
he ma le however, of the Independent
[labor Party, which is the Socialist wing
of the Labor Party, and which contains
aWit 15 per cent of its membership.
German Trades unionists number 2,200,
000, with about 120,000 women, but in
addition to this, it is estimated that
there are 250,000 "Christian Trades Un
ionists'' who are controlled more or less
by the church. Of tbe total number of
trade- unionists in Germany, perhaps
385,000 -ire Social Democrats, standing
specifically for the Socialist movement.
Estimates of tbe number of trades un
ionists in France vary considerably but
there arc probably 900,000 members of
organized labor, 300,000 of whom belong

to the ''Confederation dv Travail" or tbe
federation of Labor.
Probably tbe largest percentage of
workingmen in tbe trades unions of any
country in Europe are to be found in
Denmark and Sweden, tbe Denmark
trades unions containing fully 50 per
cent of tbe toilers and Sweden about 38
per cent. In Hungary there is an esti
mated membership of 130,000 or 28 per
cent of nil tbe workingpeoplc. Austria
has nearly 500,000 or 18 per cent, while
Italy, with its immense population, con
tains only '200,0)0 or 0 per cent.
Tbe United States with its 3,000,000
trades unionists, is in the lead in the
total number of workingmen and Work
ingwomen who are in the trades union
movement, even though the percentage
of workingmen in tbe trades unions is
not as great as it is in some countries in
Europe,
