OHIO, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16. 1890. n sintw Fifth Annual Conclave of Tneb Order at Tbe Most Convention U the History of Whtoh 'Order's and Mast Boldlj Met BUFFALO, N. Y., Sept 30t delegates, representing nearly everj railroad system in the Uniied State! and Canada, are here to participate in the annual "convention of the Switch. men's Mutual Aid Association of North America. In view of the numerous local strikes which have taken place in dif- ferent parts of tho country during rhs past year, and of tho" fact that the re p- resentaLives of tho Grand Lodge of tho order participated iu tae recent confer- ence of the Federation of Railway Em- ployes at Torre TTauto, Ind., and which declined to order out its employes in aid of the Knights of Labor, tho present convention is by all odds tho most im- portant ever held under the auspices of the order. To quote one of the mem- bers of the Grand Lodge: "We, in common with other railroad orders, hare reached a point whore tho utmost wisdom and skill is required to safely pilot the order through the dan- gers which threaten it within tho cozn- tng year.' That other orders have the same grave questions to face can bo no consolation to us, nor can it inspire us with confidence to meet them. We alone are responsible for the fate of our or- ganization, and no friendly hand from any other order can move one single stone from our pathway. The dangers arise within -the orders themselves and must bo met and overcome by their own membership, or the story of another labor organization on the rocks will be The official headquarters of tho grand officers for the fifth annual conclave are at the Genessee House, waich was be- sieged throughout the early hours by delegates' from 'distant parts' of the country. The convention was called to order in Central Labor Union Hall at two o'clock Monday afternoon. The exer- cises were -preluded' by a street parade In which about men, comprising lodges of switchmen, trainmen, firemen, the Grand Lodge and delegates and alternates' participated. After the tiar'a'de the delegates 'rep'alred to Music Ball, where Mayor Bishop delivered an address of welcome. -Grand Master Sweeney made a reply. Addresses were also made by Hon. William P. Sheehan and District Attorney Quinby. Sessions will be hold morning and afternoon every day except Wednesday afternoon, when an excursion to Niagara Falls will be made. The business sessions will all be but a press committee will give out for publication snob action of the convention as it may deetn advisa- ble to make known. Quaker City Lodge Na T3, of Philadel- phia, presented a resolution, which was unanimously adopted, In which ihe Su- preme Councilor the Federation of Rail- way Employes was indorsed for its ac- tion in the Now York Central strike, and also the position taken by the grand lodge officers in the recent Chicago trouble, and recommended Grand Mas- ter Sweeney for re-eleclion. The tele- gram to the convention from Grand Master Sargent of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, states that the convention of that body in San Francis- co has unanimously indorsed the admin- istration of th" grand lodge officers. Grand Master Sweeney was asked if he will present a report on the mooting of the Federation at Terro Haute. "The minntes of the conference will bo ho replied, "but they will not be given to the public." When asked If the as- sociation as a body approved of the ac- tion of the Federation in declining to order a general tie-up, Mr. Sweeney re- plied: "It indorses it unanimously." Remedy "Sot Tet Felt.
