The sweat-shop system, which seems
to be steadily growing despite the ef
forts of labor unions and philanthro
pists of the country to prevent it, is
Epoken of by the Chicago Herald In
commenting on the law in Illinois in
the following language: "It is pretty
generally admitted that the state fac
tory inspection law in Illinois is a fail
ure. It has done little toward check
ing child labor in Illinois, particularly
In Chicago, and has been pratically in
effective and useless so far as remov
ing the danger of the spread of infec
tious diseases by means of clothing
manufactured in unsanitary tenement
houses is concerned. The clothing
made In many of these sweat-shop ten
ements is often loaded with the germs
of actual disease. The failure of the
factory inspection law is largely due
to the inability of the inspectors to fol
low the 'sweaters,' as they jump from
one building to another. Any law
that contemplates the abolishment of
the sweater swstem will be Inadequate
and impotent that does not absolutely (
prohibit tenement house manufacture.
Under the Illinois law the manufact
urer cannot be held responsible, for the
reason that the garments are made
under contract with a middle man, or
'sweater,' who employes the sweat
shop labor. The tendency is toward
sharper contracts with the 'sweater,'
which, of course, Is followed by wages
to the toilers in tenement houses that
are so low that the business breeds
squalor, filth and disease. The sweater
must be abolished. The manufacturer
would then be compelled to maintain
his own plant In the manufacture of
clothing, as he must in iron, wood
working, boot and shoe and other in
It seems to us, says the Philadelphia
Times, from the evidence at hand, that
some of the gentlemen who are selling
convict-made goods in this country
ought to be making the aforesaid goods
The strike of the street car force in
Milwaukee does not give promise of
being successful, for the reason that,
as heretofore, the unemployed element
among the working classes is only too
willing to take the bread out of the
mouths of those who seek to better
their condition the Instant they leave
their place of employment, if only to go
to dinner.
A big grocery store syndicate has
been organized In New York. It is
stated that immense branches, or agen
cies, will be established in something
like 164 cities, and that groceries will
be purchased by the millions of dol
lars' worth, and no other dealers will
be able to compete with them.
The Cleveland (Ohio) Citizen, in dis
cussing the displacing of mechanics
through the introduction of machinery,
comments as follows: "It will not do
to say that displaced labor in one trade
can find employment in another trade.
The miner- cannot become a machinist;
neither can the tinner or printer or
cigarrmker become a skilled machin
ist. Moreover, the machinist, who it
would naturally ba supposed, profits
by the introduction of machinery in
other trades. Is himself being robbed
Of bis skill by the constant addition
or labor-savins machinery to, and the
subdivision of his trade. The effects
of machinery are felt by all, directly
and indirectly. It works good and it
works bad."

Bricklayers Will Send Delegates to
tlie Minneapolis Convention.
The Thursday night session of the Brick
layers' Benevolent Union iso. 1 proved to
be one of considerable importance. It was
decided to send delegates, to the convention of
the State Federation of Labor at Minneapolis
on June 14. A communication from the
hack drivers' union, relative to the difficulty
with the union depot officials, was received
and read, which was indorsed and the brick
layers decided to do everything in their pow
er to aid them. One new member was added
to the roll. The most important business was
the appointment of a committee to wait on
Jeremiah Prendergast, Thomas Fltzpatrlck
and Mr. Scott, owners of two buildings being
erected on Sixth and Wabasha and Sixth
and Seventh; also on William Porten and
Mr. Peterson, bosses, relative to their giving
preference to union men In the erection of
the buildings. The action in appointing a
committee was taken owing to reports hav
ing been circulated that non-union bricklay
ers were to be employed as well as union.
As any brickmason in the city can become a
member of the union on the payment of a
small sum, it would certainly seem to be to
their Interests to do so, as they would then
be in a poslUon to demand and receive the
highest wages.
The official call for a meeting of the Min
nesota State Federation of Labor was Issued
last week. The convention Is to be held at
Minneapolis, Sunday, June 14, beginning at
10 a. m. One delegate for each twenty-five
members or major fraction thereof will be
allowed, but no local union can send more
than five. One of the measure* to come up
will be a vote on the advisability of In
creasing the semi-annual dues from 50 cents
to ?1 per delegate, and they are expected to
go prepared to pay the increased amount. If

submitted at the last convention. "The com

Important one, and every organization of
working people should be represented. No
labor organization can afford to refrain from
co-operatloi with others in tha struggles
and labors that are now before the Industrial
forces. There are many reforms demanded
by the workers which can only be achieved
by united action, and the wage-working class
can anvec hog* t« secure Its rights until It
combines' Its forces In one mass. It Is
necessary for a clear understanding, both of
our rights and our opportunities, that we
meet for discussion and counsel, and learn
each other's needs and wishes. It is hoped,
therefore, that every labor organization in
the state will be represented by at least one

The following preamble and resolutions
were unanimously adopted at the meeting
of Typographical Union No. 30. last Sunday:
W rhereas, After due consideration and dis
cussion, the members of Typographical Union
No. 30, of St. Paul, Minn., have been con
vinced that the best interests of the people
would be subserved by the nationalization of
our telegraph lines, it Is hereby
Resolved, That the Hon. Mr. Kiefer, mem
ber of congress for this district, and Senators
Davis and Nelson, representing the state in
the senate of the United States, are hereby
requested to work and vote for that bill
to secure government ownership and control
of the telegraph lines, which has secured the
Indorsation of the International Typograph
ical Union.
Whereas, Typographical Union No. 30, of
St Paul, Minn., is a firm believer in the
maintenance of fair conditions, union hours
and union wages, and believes that these
can be best secured by demanding goods
bearing a label which indicates they have
been manufactured by union men working for
fair employers, it is therefore
Resolved, That the members of this or
ganization pledge themselves to advance the
interests of all union labels, and especially
that of the International Typographical
Union, and will request merchants and oth
ers with whom they deal to see that it ap
pears upon their printing; and be it further
Resolved, That the members of this union
use every honorable endeavor to have the
papers to which they subscribe, and the
books which they purchase, bear the im
print of honest labor, namely, the label repre
senting the Typographical union and affiliated

Typographical Union No. 30 held its regular
.meeting last Sunday afternoon and elected
Harry Franklin, H. W. Dennett and H. W.
Goetzinger as delegates to attend the annual
convention of the Tenth district of the allied
j printing trades, which will be held at Fargo
on June S. The Tenth district union has Jur
isdiction in the states of Minnesota, Manitoba
i and North mi South. Dakota* Tat affiliated
organizations consist of the printers, press
men, stereotypers, bookbinders and press feed
ers. The report of Secretary Thomas, who
was instructed to visit all the printing of
fices of the city, showed that there were not
more than a half-dozen competent printers in
the city not affiliated with the union. Tho
greatest evil presented was the large number
of apprentices caused by the small job of
fiecs, as the law of the union allowed each of
fice one apprentice. Only one office In the
city showed any hostility to the union, but
nearly all deprecated the over-competition in
the trade, and employers generally complained
of the snw.ll profits they were able to secure
on all kinds of printing. The membership of
the union at the present time is 298. It was
voted to levy a fine of $3 on any member found
smoking cigars made In a certain local cigar
factory. The conditions in two offices where
the scale was being violated were referred to
the organizer to secure the sanction of the In
ternational Union to close the offices to union
men. Secretary Thomas was granted further
time to complete his report, which he expressed
a desire to put Into tabulated form.
The annual ball of the pressmen's union
last Saturday evening was well attended, prob
ably 200 couple taking part in the festivities.
Tho supper was served by the wives and
daughters of members of the union, and was
a most appetizing spread, the tables being
decorated with the finest plants and flowers
that could be secured.
Frank Pampusch, secretary of the local press
feeders' union, recently recelvd a request from
Milwaukee Pressmens* Union No. 7, with a
membership of eighty, asking for a copy of
the constitution and by-laws of the St. Paul
union, on the ground that they were reported
to be the best In use by any subordinate or
ganization under the Jurisdiction of the I. P.

At the bi-weekly meeting "Talk on Timely
Topics" held Monday night at the First Ilap
tlst church, the "Advantages and Disadvan
tages of Trades Unions" was tho question
under consideration. There was a small but
appreciative audience, and the arguments
were interesting and instructive. S. A. Peter
son made a plea In behalf of trades unions,
showing their great advantages In further
ing the causes of the laboring classes. He
spoke of the conservative and radical ele
ments existing in the unions, the decrease of
hours and increase of wages, and the difficul
ties the labor organizations have been con
tending with. He particularly emphasized
the benefits which the laboring masses are
deriving from trade organizations morally,
politically and financially, and mentioned as
a feature of the unions the establishment
of the brotherhood of man as one of the
noblest aims which could possibly be realiz
ed. Rev. J. W. Conley stated that he also
wished it understood that he was in cordial
sympathy with labor organizations. He, how
ever, did not hesitate In pointing out some
of the dangerous tendencies of them. He
dwelt upon their hostilities to other organiza
tions and their misuse of rentraiized power.
He paid a tribute to the greatest of the labor
unionisms as well as of humanity, "The
brotherhood of man," the realization of which
would forever drive out the nightmare of
vice and darkness. Brief remarks were made
by Mr. Bacon and others.
The stage employes held a short session
Tuesday night. Nothing of Importance trans
pired unless the fact that "Col." Bonn for
got to register could be so construed, after
the great attempt he made to secure the elec
tion of several of the boys representing or
ganized labor.
The Journeymen horseshoers, a group of
whose officers appear In this department to

A. R, V. No. 214 had a large and enthusi
asts meeting last Monday evening. Several
candidates were taken into the union, and
officers for the ensuing term were elected.
Sylvester Nelly, one of the most prominent
directors in the organization, delivered an
animated address, in which he intimated
that the ranks were fast being added to,
especially in the Southern states, and, In
the language of Eugene V. Debs, the order
"was stronger than ever."
