DEMAND THE U » 'A LABEL.
It Is the Stamp of Fair Dealing and
Emblem of Freedom.
In many European countries manu
facturers place great value upon Iheil
trademarks. This is more particularly
true of England and Germany, where
for hundreds of years the trademarks
of firms hnve been carefully protected
There Is but one reason for this. The
trademark of these manufacturers
stamped plainly upon everything they
produce is a guarantee to the purcbasei
that the article is the best of ils kind
to be had. Iv the United States the
trademark has uot been so generally
adopted. In the east, however, where
some manufacturing plants have been
iv continuous operation for two or
three hundred years, the trademark
still is used. These plants were In till
likelihood started by men who came
from the other side of the Atlantic.
To these men the trademark is the
stamp of honor. Its principal signifi
cance is that the manufacturer who
owns It and places it upon bis wares is
not ashamed to let any one know who
manufactured them. "Honest goods
aud fair dealing" is the slogan of the
man who uses the trademark.
In the last half century many labot
organizations, always alive to their
interest nnd embracing in their ranks
the best workmen to be bad, have
also adopted a trademark. It is the
union label. It stands not only its a
guarantee of the best article to be
had in the line indicated, but it also
guarantees that the persons em
ployed in that particular line of in
dustry receive good wages, work rea
sonable hou.'s in sanitary workshops,
are healthy, happy and contented, and
thus are well equipped to pm forth
their best efforts for their employers.
The uniou label also is the emblem ot
freedom. Under conditions obtaining
where it is used workmen are not
slaves. Instead of sad faces in the
union workshop, the "smile that won't
come off" is the rule. Pride is taken
by workman and employer alike to
shop conditions, and ns a result the
purchasing public receives the benefit.
UNION MADE GOODS.
It is now possible to purchase
every article of wearing apparel
for men with the union label on,
and there is no good excuse for
any union man uot being a union
man from the top of his bead to
the soles of his feet. With the
ever increasing demand for the
label a better quality of Roods is
being pot upon the market
Demand not only the onion la
bel, but also the quality with it.
Both of these can be secured,
and just as soon as the mer
chants see that the demand is
sufficient to warrant them in
handling union made goods they
will do Ml and will en hvnor to
get the best lo be had.
Let thi», labor s Sabbath day.
Be a day of pleasure.
Toll no bells ami nothing play
But a Jolly measure.
Labor's very self Is prayer.
Berlous and holy,
Bo Its holiday should wear
Naught of melancholy.
Bure no temple walls should Irk
Labor's gala spirit,
Whose least sounds of dally work
Boar to heaven or near it.
We could build no nttlng fane
Dedicate to labor
Till the world shall learn again
Love of God and neighbor.
As of old. the pure of heart
(You have heard the story)
Reared cathedral walls at Chartrea,
Btlll Its greatest glory.
Prince and peasant, belle and wenen,
Tolling In all weather,
Hauled the stone and dug the trench.
Praising God together.
Those who set their hates nsldo
Only were selected,
And who would not were donied
And their gifts rejected.
Love endureth over art;
Art la transitory.
But the twain combined at Chartrea
Blossomed Into glory.
Till the world shall strive again
Thus for God and neighbor
We shall rear no fitting fane
Dedicate to labor.
Bo let labor's Sabbath day
Be a day of pleasure.
Toll no bells and nothing play
But a lolly measure.
Labor's very self Is prayer,
Berlous and holy,
go Its holiday should wear
Naught of melancholy.

THE LABOR JOURNAL
LOOK FOR THE LABEL.
When purchasing a suit of
clothes look for the trademark
of the United Garment Workers
of America. When you hnve a
suit made to order insist on bar
ing the label of the Journeymen
Tailors' union. Your shoes
should benr the stamp of the
Boot nnd Shoe Workers' union.
In the hat you wear there should
be sewed under the swentband
the label of the United Hatters
of North America. Underwear
and shirts are easily to be had
bearing the label of the United
Garment Workers, and suspend
ers, collars, neckwenr and all
other wearing apparel enn be
procured with the insignia of the
unions upon them. Even when
you die it is now possible to
have the distinguishing mark of
the union workman upon your
From the above It will readily
be seen thnt no one need pur
chase nonunion products because
of inability to get union made
articles. Let every union mem
ber make an extra effort to buy
union labeled goods.
STRIKERS' LEGAL STATUS.
Have Right to Persuade Others, Says
Member of New York Bar.
John B. Green of the New York bar,
writing iv the September number of
Case nnd Comment, lays down the fol
lowing present day rules of law in re
gard to strikes: m
"Laborers act within their rights
when they strike. They have a right
to quit work, with or without cause,
and need give their reasons for doing
so to uo one. This right is not affected
by their quitting at once in a body pur
suant to a preconcerted agreement.
The legal status of the parties to a
labor dispute is precisely the same in
both strikes and lockouts. Workmen
may rightfully combine and work iv
common in any way that they believe
will increase their earnings, decrease
their labor, lessen their working hours
or improve their condition. They have
the right to do this either as individ
uals or by organization Into trades
"A strike or lockout equally termi
nates the contract of employment.
Neither striking workmen nor the em
ployers of locked out laborers can be
compelled by law to return to work
or to re-employ the workmen upon any
terms or conditions.
"Both striking and locked out work
men have a legal right to argue or dis
cuss with other workmen brought 01
applying to take their places to per
suade them if possible not to do so,
provided neither violence nor Intimida
tion is used."
Railroad Arbitrators Agree.
The main points of the decision in
the wage controversy between the fif
ty-two eastern railroads and the loco
motive engineers have been agreed
upon by the board of arbitrators. The
details of the decision will be thorough
ly examined by the board aud will uot
be made public until nil details have
been ngreed upon. It will then be
sent to tbe railroad officials aud the
engineers. A final decision is not like
ly for several weeks.
Under the terms of the agreement by
which the demands of tbe engineers
were referred to arbitration a decision
of a majority of the board will be
bluding on both sides. Oscar S. Straus
resigned as chairman of tbe board, but
will remain a member. Dr. ('buries
R. Van Hlse, president of the Univer
sity of Wisconsin, is chairman.
Homes For Workingmen.
The city of I'iuar del Rio. Cuba, is
building fifty homes for workingmen
similar to those receutiy built near Ha
vana. The homes are to be allotted by
a drawing, and each lucky drawer will
have a stated time to pay for the home
In installments, and then he will get a
deed to the laud and house.
Tom Lewis Named For Office.
Thomas L Lewis of Bridgeport,
former president of tbe United Mine
Workers of America, baa been select
ed as regular Republican nominee for
secretary of state of Ohio.

A MINIMUM WAGE
Mayor Fitzgerald of Boston Fa
vors $15 a Week.
THAT SUIY LOWEST STANDARD
Chief Executive of Massachusetts Capi
tal Declares the American Workman
Cannot Support Family and Educate
Children on Smaller Income.
Bon, John F. Fitzgerald, mayor of
Boston, has started a minimum wage
cv i upaign. lie believes that $15 n
week Is the least that the nation, state
or city should pay any employee, and
starts off by announcing that he bus
Instructed all bis department beads to
make provision in their annual esti
mates for the city budget for paying
nil men nt least that amount
Originally the mayor hud planned to
give all the unskilled city laborers,
several hundred in number, an Increase
from $13.50 to $15, beginning tbe new
year. After n careful study of tbe sit
nation and after devoting some at ten
tion to Ills crusade against the high
cost of living, the mayor now contends
that every mau should receive that
The mayor says that the normal
American family, consisting of the
pnrents and four children, should not
be expected to get along on less. Ami
the unmarried man. lie says, will be
encouraged to be thrifty nnd more npt
to get married.
This demand of the mayor's will be
one of the plunks in bis campaign for
the United States senatorshlp, and he
proposes to advocate such a minimum
wage in every town in the state.
"I believe that it is un-American to
ask the normal American family to
live upon less than $15 a week." snys
"With the price of foodstuffs souring
and everything else going up in pro
portion 1 cannot canceive how a man
can bring up a family of four children,
feed, clothe and educate them on less
Of course many manage to squeeze by
on less, considerably less, but that Is
due reason why the overseers of the
poor iv cities nnd towns are obliged
to get large appropriations annually
and why pauper institutions are almost
always filled to capacity.
"In cities and towns where the fathel
of the family is employed in mills on
starvation wages it is frequently neces
sary for the wife to go to work. That
destroys the woman's natural state.
Her place is at home with her children.
"Personal investigation of conditions
right here in this city has convinced me
that it is next to impossible for fum
illes to live on less than $15 a week
and bring up their children properly.
Reports from the school departments
In every city and town show that a
large percentage of the elementary
school pupils never enter the high
schools and go out into the world
without much of any training nnd uo
trades. If the fathers of the families
cau get a living wage 1 venture to say
that the parents will be more apt to
give their children a better education.
"With the cost of everything at the
highest, many of the unskilled men
of today—those who have no trade
find it n difficult problem to get by on
the wages they are receiving. Years
ago a man might reasonably have got
nlong upon less, but the cost of living
has doubled within a comparatively few
"Even with $15 a week there must
be rigid economy. Reports made by
those who have given time aud study
to the question show that it costs prac
tically $15 a week to support the nor
mal American family, a family of four
children. For rent alone it is prac
tically Impossible to get anything even
in the poorer districts for less than
$3.50 a week. Food will cost at least
$8, and for fuel, light, clothing uud in
cidental expenses $3.50 Is a reasonable
"When thnt amount of money is used
by a family of six I cannot conceive
how the head of a family can be ex
pected to find much enjoyment in life.
How families manage to get by on tbe
wages paid operatives in some of the
large mills in the industrial centers is
more than I can fathom.
"This matter is something which 1
have considered for a long time, but
the necessity of providing that amount
never demonstrated itself more forci
bly than It has duriug the past few
months because of the attitude of the
trusts in forcing upward in long and
rapid strides the cost of meats and
"While 1 believe that my public mar
ket plan of allowing market gardeners
and farmers generally to sell their
products direct to the people from
their carts on certain streets in the I
city will materially help the poor man
who is getting less than $15 a week. 1
am firmly convinced that he cannot
get all that he wants for his family
even at reduced cost unless he is given
the minimum wage which 1 advocate."
Short Day In Shipyards.
All of the workmen employed in the j
Fore River shipyards, near Quiney. ]
Mass.. will go on an eight hour basis
Nov. 4. A notice to this effect has been
posted. At present one-third of the
men employed on government ships
work eight hours, but the men on prl
vate contracts put in vine hours.
Within a short time the keel of the
Dreadnought Nevada will be ready for
laying, which will require more men
on tbe short day plnn. To prevent con
fusion the company decided to put tbe
entire yard on the same rating. The
prevailing rate of wages for nine hours
will be paid and 3.900 meu will be ben
efited by the change.
