EVERETT TRADES COUNCIL
Labor Temple, Friday, March 10.-- Councll was called to order at S p. in. by President Olinger. Mr. Busher, local manager of the B. , P. Charlton Co. ">. 10 and 15c store , was granted the courtesy of the floor to explain the rumors which had gained , circulation that the new management had reduced wages of the female help. . I'he gentleman stated that the reports . were untrue as the same wages, and in , a few cases higher, were paid by the new management as by Mr. Landers, the . former owner. To thought the council , should have ascertained if reports were true and upon (hiding them false, should have nipped them in the bud. Several of the delegates pointed out to the gen tleman that as none of the clerks were , members of the retail clerks union, it was hardly the council's place to take Official action. It was further pointed Otlt to him lh.it members and friends of organized labor wanted to see the cards of the retail clerks when making purchases. A»ked if lie had any ob jection to his clerks joining the union, lie replied. "None whatever." Mr. Bush er was tendered a rising vote of thanks for his willingness to apepar before the council and his apparent friendliness to organized labor. The credentials of Geo. Botne. of the linemen and Harry Williams, of the carpenters, were accepted and the dele j A COMPREHENSIVE REVEIW OF WORK DONE BY LEGISLATURE (Continued from Page One.) debted to all of these organiations foi gen.roua assistance rendered alo»-g dif fer-nt lines.

Makes Orderly Boycott Lawful Penalizes Attempts to Coerc* Work ers to Refra.n From Joining a Labor Organization. Trade unionism has the public ear open mill attentive to Its pleudinga foi relief by law From n me essury bur dens and gross] Injustice bound on its back by the employing class nntl the courts, This is proved by numerous finds. Among the moal significant ami hopeful ot these is the ijuickeiicd consciences nf legislators in many parts nf Hie country with reference i" laws fur tin- protection nnd assistance uf labor In its struggle ror the better ment of iis nun legions nnd the whole people nf tbo country, A striking cane In point is this: The legislature of New York has before it nnd is seriously considering n bill providing for the addition of fjvo new sections to tin- stale In bor law. nil re latlng to tlie rights of laborera. Tho bill makes it a misdemeanor for .•my person, company or the officer or agent of such company to compel persons to refrain from joining any labor organization as v condition of such persons securing employment with the company or person. Viola tion of this provision is punishable by n line of not less than $500 nor more than $1,000 or Imprisonment for not less than ninety days nor more than twelve months, or both. It permits boycotting. It provides thut agreements or contracts between persons to do or not to do any net In contempt: Hon or furtherance of any trade dl ; ute bstween employers and employ.>os In Hie state shall not be doe vol (rtmlliill ml shall not bo pun ished ns v conspiracy unless such acts would be criminal If committed by one person. Such acts nre not to be con sidered in restraint of trade nnd may not be enjoined. Violence is prohibited. It also prohibits employers from bringing in employees from other states or from other parts of the state by menus of false or deceptive induce ments or representations as to work to be done, the conditions and the com pensation to be paid. Failure to state Iv an advertisement that there is n lockout ut such place of employment Is to be deemed v false advertisement. Violation of this provision is punish able by B fine of not less than $000 nor more than $2.0t)0, or imprisonment for not less than one month nor more than .one year or both. Strike breaking is also prohibited. It provides that any person who shall hire or aid in hiring persons to guard with arms or deadly weapons other persons' property and persons coming from without the stute so armed for that purpose without the consent of the governor shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction shall be impris oned for not less than one year nor more than five years. But no person is to be prohibited from protecting and guarding his property, as is now pro vided by law. The provision regarding strike break ing and false advertising is to apply only to workiutrnieu brought Into the state or induced to go from one place to another within the state. Working men so brought in ure given certain rights to recover damages sustained. A similar measure has beeu intro duced iv the Oregon legislature also in which the sumo course of legislation is proposed. There has been no con ference or agreement between tbe east ern and western states, but the new labor bills they are considering are al most identical in what they contain. This is a strong Indication that the sentiment of the people east ns well us west is aroused and Insistent on the ■ subject. Profit Sharing Pays. Bolioviiifr return in loyalty and am bition on tlie part of their employee! made it doubly worth while, Hlbbard ( Spencer, Bartlett A: Co. of Chicago have extended their profit sharing plan to Include every one connected with tho institution. Several hundred employees, ranging from department manager to office boy, recently receiv ed checks of from 4 to 12 per cent of t heir salaries, representing their shares In the firm's earning! during the las' yenr. "The profit sharing system has proved an Immense success with us," said Frank Hibbard, fourth vice pres ident of the firm, "and the time will come when every progressive business house will realize its advantage nnd put it Into effect. "We have found that the plan not only encourages employee! to stay with us until they have qualified for participation In the benefits, but thnt it creates a sentiment of loyalty to the house thnt Is invaluable." Miners Support Mitchell. John Mitchell of the National Civic federation has been given assurances of support by thousands of mine work ■ ers of the Pennsylvania anthracite field. Big mass meetings were held In various regions on Feb. 19, and nt these lenders of the mine workers nnd others voiced their indignation over the passing of the resolution at the recent convention declaring that Mitchell must either leave the union or give up his membership In the Civ ic federation. At each of the meet lugs resolutions wore passed condemn ing the delegates who voted nguinst Mitchell nnd expressing the confidence of the anthracite men In the former national president of the union. Illinois Orders Label. Tli<> legislature of Illinois has adopt ed 11 resolution ordering tbnt the union htl>el he placed on all printed matter to be used by the senate and house of representatives. The greut Mississip pi valley stute has thereby followed the load of several other common weal t lis, and so the little leaven of agltiition for state use of the labej of tbe printing trades is gradually leav ening tbe whole lump of state gov ernment lv this country.

Break In the Forces Arrayed Against Labor In Los Angeles. Since Mny 10, 1010, the unionists of Los Angeles have been struggling for the right to organise, which rlgbl has boon denied them by well organised employers. On the date mentioned the men of the browing industry were obliged to leave their places. Shortly afterward the iron trades were drawn into the combat. The issue was the sit me. ,\ few days ago the Wieland agency of the Wieland Brewery of Ban Fran cis, o and the agency of the Sun Diego Brewing company settled their differ ences with their former employees. The agreement reached grants the union shop, an Increase of $1 n week In wages for tlie workmen nnd the removal from the breweries of the strike breakers. This Is cheering news. We congrat ulate heartily the trade unionists im mediately concerned ns well ns those who nre still engaged in battle. The omen is good. Victory rests with the wage earners ns the result of the com pletion of this long drawn out contest. This, however. Is but n preliminary triumph, and others an- sure to come speedily in Its wake. By it the back bone of the opposition to I rude union ism in the cruelly stricken und op pressed California city is broken, nnd It Is only necessary now for the union ist forces to charge with mi unwaver ing front nil along tbe line. Hy so do ing they will soon sweep their bitter and malignant foes into the public con tempt they so richly merit. PLAY DAY FOR CHILDREN. Plan to Make Labor Day Greatest Holiday of the Year. A plan which may result iv making Labor day B national play day was suggested by Francis T. Simmons, president of the Lincoln park board, at the dinner given recently by tbe Playground Association of Chicago to Joseph Lee, president of the Play ground Associatin of America. Mr. Simmons suggested that all park boards nnd commissions and all char itable and other similar organizations should begin preparation nt once to make Labor day the biggest holiday of the year. The suggestion was sec onded by Jnne Addams, who in her address added the further suggestion that a law be passed to convert ev ery vacant lot Into a playground until sold for use as a building site. Mr. Lee. who spoke of the work of tho Playground association, said that Chicago led the country In play spots for children. "Play is growth; it Is the way a child becomes a man," be said. "The sports of today are too• unreal. In baseball and football nnd other games we buy some one else's play. What we need to do Is to encourage tho 'big Injun' spirit of the boy, but encourage It under supervision." Trade Union Briefs. Portland (Ore.) union seamen get $50 a month and 55 cents an hour for over time. The Northwest Council of Carpeuters will represent 7,500 members nud will embrace Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and British Columbia. The union label section of the Ban Francisco labor council bas decided to adopt a universal label lv place of the different labels now in use nnd" will ask the council for its approval of the change.
