A Practical and Potent Force That Works Systematically and Naturally For Human Betterment —Unifies Men In Industrial Struggle. Many persons, Including a large pro portion of tbe members of organized labor, apparently are Impressed with the Idea that the value of the trade union is to be measured wholly by tbe number of wage betterments It se cures in the Immediate present. This line of reasoning lends to tbe faulty conclusion tbat tbe fuct tbat tbe union does not secure some add! tional Increase in any one week proves that the union is no good, at least for that particular week. No matter if for ninety-nine succes sive weeks tbe union has succeeded in accomplishing something In tbe way of betterment, nnd that the workers in the hundredth week were being bene fited by all tbe gains made in tbe niue ty-nlne preceding weeks, because in the hundredth week no new advantage was secured, that would be proof posi tive In tbe minds of some nurrow minded members tbat tbe union bns outlived Its usefulness and should be broken up and sold for old junk. There are those In tbe ranks of labor unionism who do not appreciate tbe importance of tbe ultimate purpose of unionism, and who do not understand that each small advance in tbe im provement of the conditions of Inbor is one more step on tbe long journey toward the goal of all our efforts. The ultimate purposes of tbe unions cannot be very definitely described be cause they are as broad as the needs of mankind. Some bave said that tbe trade union movement is tbe only force In tbe world that is systematically aud nnt urnlly working for the practical uplift of humanity. In other departments of endeavor good work Is being done, but in no other field are the wants of man in tbis life so fully provided for nnd so carefully guarded. The employing class cannot be the uplifting force be cause it Is to the Interests of each em ployer under our competitive economic system to get labor for as little money as possible. Left to themselves, the employers would reduce wages and pauperize the world. Examples of their baneful work are everywhere present where the uplifting of union ism Is absent. Our educational system is a great co worker witb unionism In the advance of the race. Indeed, we could not ad vance rapidly without It, but educa tion only fits a man for bis life work and increases his competitive force and leaves him to fight single banded egulnst his fellows, his hand against every man, and every man against him In the fierce Industrial struggle. Unionism puts a stop to this fratri cidal strife and places him in fellow ship nnd copartnership with his fel lows. The church confines its endeavors largely to tbe moral and spiritual de velopment of mankind. It also is an Indispensable coworker with unionism. For without moral character there cun be no stable reformation, no success ful evolution toward the best possi bilities of the race. But the church does not unify men in tbe industrial struggle. It is left for unionism to do this. The dream of the altruist, the hope of the world, can only be realized through the success of trade unionism. But while we aspire to achieve our ultimate purposes which are, broadly speaking, to secure peace, prosperity and happiness for all who toll, there are many things that we can do in the meantime. We can always be on the alert to se cure as much as possible in return for our labors, with the full knowledge that the accomplishment of this pur pose, even by the piecemeal plan, Is v part of our ultimate object, and, more over, we must realize that any condl tion of labor approaching the Ideal will never be brought about in one at tempt, but must be secured by the slower and surer process of gains by Inches. And this teaches the lesson thnt the trade union that is the most effective la the one that never sleeps, but is constantly on the alert, ready to gain its Inch on every favorable opportuni ty, thus contributing each time one more step in advance toward the at tainment of our ultimate purpose. The union that keeps its ultimate purpose constantly in mind is the more apt to achieve the successive chain of small victories which go to make up the triumph of a great cnuse for 1\ 9 reason that strict adherence to aui persistence in its main effort give Its movement a steadiness of purpose and a powerful swing and precision of movement that carry TOoeesa with It, while on the other aand tbe union that loses sight of its ultimate purposes und engages In a scramble for temporary advantage Is Spt to overreach itself and to perish becnuse of steering an unwise course.- Shoe Workers* Journal. W. R. Booth Benefaction! of the Machinists. In two years the International As sociation of Machinists has paid In strike benefits the sura of $585,400.20 In death benefits It has spent $93.:i25. and Its local unions have paid, on a conservative estimate. $100,000 for sick benefits.

Some writers nnd orators who < know less about the labor ques- \ tion than tbey do about the north i pole declare that trade unions ] destroy personal liberty and keep i nil the workers down to "a dead level of sloth and Incompetency." This Is just as true ns to soy that the seats in n street car de stroy the liberty of the pnssen gers to stand up. There never was n more sbome less fraud than this •'right to work" proposition in the way tbat It is being put forward by the trusts. The right to work for nothing is not a right. It Is a wrong. \ What are trade unions organ i lzed for if not to obtain more | personal liberty for their mem- < bers? Con any one seriously im- j ngine thnt a body of men will i band together and pay dues for ' years for the sake of getting less personnl liberty than tbey J have? What does liberty menu? Is J a man free who has nothing to • say about his wages and bis ] hours of labor? Is a man free • who takes the harness nnd the ' whip as obediently as a cart horse? Is a man free whose only aim In life Is to do what he Is told and take what Hi Is offered? If this Is freedom, then the trusts must have a peculiar dictionary of their own. No man is free who has not something to say about the con ditlons under which he works.— Herbert N. Casson. A COLOSSAL BLUNDER. that of tho Wage Earner Who Fails to Join the Union. The* biggest blunder a wage earner can make is to fail to unite with his comrades in a trade union. It is a blunder so great tbat it amounts to a crime—a crime against himself, against his family and ngaiust his race und especially against bis class. That bis conduct is a crime of shame ful enormity is plain from the fact thnt he is putting himself with n set who alone stand in the way of the uplift of all workingmcn. for If all wage earners were lv tbe union there could be no scabs and strike breakers, so that the employers would be forced to meet the reasonable demands of their employees. » How a self respecting wage earner or an honest minded one can content himself In slavish inaction for his owu welfare Is beyond human knowledge; no man can Invent an excuse for him. This applies to nonunion meu who live surrounded by union influences and where the invitation to join the union Is constantly extended to them. There may be others to whom the gospel of unionism has never been preached. The union men themselves are responsible for their failure to join the union. It is our duty to preach the trade union gospel to the heathen that there shall be none to whom the good news has not been carried ttud to keep at it faithfully, earnestly, per sistently until there shall not be an honest man In all the land left to ad vocate the cause of industrial slavery —Roanoke Era. Labor Condemns Boy Scouts. Tbe convention of the Michigan State Federation of Labor, iv session at Battle Creek, tbe other day voted to condemn the boy scout organization, no matter whether such organization bo called Minutemen. Children of the Republic or any other title. The con vention declared that the federation "Is opposed to war nnd oil its trap pings and especially to the boy scout movement and, further, thnt the locnl unions affiliated with the State feder ation be requested to begin an active campaign to counteract the evil Influ ences of this insidious movement." Union Miners Acquire Coal Property. Colorado union miners bave pur chased 320 acres of coal lands near Erie in that state. The Farmers' Ed ucational and Co-operative uuiou has formed an alliance with the miners, and George B. Lang, Its president, is president of the coal company. Tbe farmers' union claims a membership of 3,000,000, with 14,000 in Colorado. Trade Union Notes. The Indiana State Federation of La bor Is strong for woman's suffrage.

In creased their day wage from $2.75 to $3 and piece work rates from $3.50 to $3.70 without strike. A total of $13,81G In donations and $57,000 In strike benefits has been paid by tbe International Union of Brewery Workmen during the last year. The Steam Engineers' union of Snn Francisco levied an assessment of $2 on each member, tho money thus raised to be sent to the McNamara defense fund. The International Molders' union re ports a total Increase in membership for the quarter of 2,015, with an es penditure In sick benefits for tbe same period of $45,327.

THE LABOR JOURNAL A RIGHT OF LABOR That of Placing a Value on Its Own Possessions. FREE AND FAIR BARGAIN. True Aim of Trade Unionism Is to Convert the Employer From the Idea That He Controls the Personal Busi ness of the Employee. Here's a noteworthy psychological phenomenon, a business man s< ts out to buy products from a second busi uess man lie haggles with him over price and quality, comes to terms with him, buys what be wants and then has a good dinner with him. (be two conversing amicably. Bui the prod vets not being finished for bis market, being In fact only the rnw materials for his manufactory', tbe buyer next has recourse to a third business man. who also bus something for sale. The something is locked up In the third Bum's s!:i;i for moving thlugs -thnt is. lv his physical aud mental powers In other Words, tho development of his faculties as n worker represents nt any given stage of bis life v cotnblnn tion of personal activities, a concrete potentiality for output, resultant on b's gl'jWtb in mind nnd body But does business man Xo 1 as a matter of course sit down amicably <>ti terms of equality with business mnn No 15 and bargain nnd agree on terms nnd wind up the transaction with a convivial din Her 7 If be does not, why not '.' Why should be hot? Wherefore any difference in approaching the two transactions? The answer is. it la all n matter of n psy chology Put aside the traditions of property versus labor, the advantages of one who hits wealth over one who has lit tle or nothing, the power of rich em ployer to dictate to poor employee, and you introduce a new psychology Into this situation as between No. 1 and No 3. The moment that In any occupa tion the No 3's put themselves per force into the category of tbe No. 2's the No. Pa undergo a moral, spiritual and withal practical Change. The No l's are then aide to soc that the No. 3's are in business ns well as them selves Given a very wealthy and inde pendent No. 1 who must bave the business co-operation of a self reliant and equally independent No. 3—or or ganisation of No. 3's—and the psycho logical transformation is effected iv him instantaneously by the circum stance must. The order of business becomes Immediately one of free and fair bargain, of equality In negotia tion, with a common desire for agree meut. usually followed by success in coming to terms, nnd then perhaps follows dinner, with a better under standing. Upon finding No. 3 as independent ns No. 2 It could never occur to No. 1 that be could charge No. 3 of "hostill ty to my business" for plainly stating what value No. 3 puts on his own pos sessions (his labor powert. wli.it time per day he would consent to devote In delivering tbem and what protection to bis health and what insurance us to safety must be guaranteed him These points would come Up as be tween gentlemen as n matter ot course. Thus it is seen Hint n true nnd pro found aim of trade unionism is the conversion of the employer from tbe superstition thnt tbe Jurisdiction of his business extends over Into nnd en velops tbe proper personal business of the employee. As a fact, it did so pass over for many a lone; year, but never Justly It did so when No. 3 was slave nnd No. 1 was owner, when No. 3 was serf ami No. 1 was master nnd when No. 3 was n nonunionist and No. I said: "Come: Go! Work twelve hours a day seven days a week: Moreover, you'll take what wages I think you are worth'" The human mind Is prone to shut it self up In the dark depths of selfish ness. Light usually comes to it only when forced In through tbe trials ot necessity. So long us the No. l's of this world bad things their own way they thought that they themselves were rightfully the only wield;rs of power ns owners of "the whole business." Tbey grow out of this unreason now nd.iys Just ns the So 3's gain a conn ter force to tbelts and a sense of pro prietorship in whnl truly is their own sluire of the business-their labor, their bodies, their will, their right to bar gain. 11 lustra'lons of this truth are fre quently seen when v union wins In a contest with an employer who has been mistaken on this point of his property — his investment nnd his own Inbor— being tbe whole business lie Is usual ly glad when the trouble Is over to re sunie bis part of the business-after the employees bave decided to resume their part. He then knows that In tbe business of buylug und selling labor there nre two sides concerniug two sets of business men Ho may even remember tbat before the Inte uuplens antness he bad been guilty of hostility to his employees' business. They were obliged to teach him tbe difference be tween what was his nnd what was theirs.—American Federalloulst. Holiday For Drowery Workers. At tbe request of President Timothy Henly of the Stationary Firemen's un ion, who made the request to the t'nlt ed States Rrewers' association's con vention nt Chicago recently, Hreruon. engineers and brewery workers are hereafter to bave a week'a holiday with pay.
