The local or- ganiser has received a letter from the first vice president of the above union and :r. his capacity as general organizer lie intends visiting Canada at an early elate. The funeral of Kempton McKin, ex- of the Winnipeg Trades Council was held ui Winnipeg Wednesday week to St. Mary's cem. utory. The pall bearers were selected from the'unions. The Typographical Union had entire charge of the fun- eral and the members" attended in a hody. Wreaths from many of the labor organizations were piled around the casket at the parlors of the un- dertaker's when the many friends passed through to take a last look at the form of the deparkd friend.

Are YOU one yet f Lai's Tea is sold only in Let abridge by With the hearty sanction, of the editor of the Herald, I am thU week able to make a very important an- nouncement which I hope will be the means of bonefUting the working clas- ses, no matter what particular trade they follow. This is the" establish- ment oi a Labor Bureau, in connec- tion with this column, and it is my intention to keep a record of. the un- employed in the city and vicinity, and to interest employers of labor so that when they require help this may bs furnished them when possible There will be no charge and as there are no employment bureaus in the city, I will be treading on no one's toes. To the outsider I shall be pleas- ed to. furnish what wages are being paid, the possibilities of work and all other necessary information. This will be supplied absolutely free on application but enclose post age. To make this a success I mus have the co-operation of both em ployee and employer. A book will be provided at the Herald office where those desirous of registering will state their name, trade and hov long they havr worked at same Should any contractor wish to hir nusicians could be held. On Tues- day last the organizer .met the Citi- ,cn's band and they decided to con- inue the subject until the general meeting was called. It may be of nterest to note that tnere are only two unions in the province' of Al- serta in the meantime, and it is hop- ed that this city will have the honor of making the third. A general meeting of Lethbridgc musicians will be held in the sample room of the Balmoral Hotel on Monday evening, August 3rd. The chair will be taken, by the local cr ganizer at 8.30 prompt, and it is hop. ed that all intending-to join, as well as those who. "hae their will be present. I hear with pleasure that the Trad- es and Labor Council are making an effort to make ihe ensuing Labor Day one to be remembered in the annals of unionism. Already several good schemes have been adopted, and when thcst: have become fully ma- tured, notice of them will be found in this column.

The pretty rooms were profusely decorated with roses, sweet peas and Marguerites. Mrs. Stafford looked very sweet and dainty .in a pink silk princess gown trimmed with lace. Mrs. Lethbridge ami Mrs. E. X. HiginbotKara presided at the tea-table which was most artistic with pretty hand-painted centre-piece and bowls filled with quantities of sweet peas. Those assisting Everyone knows how staid and dec- orous Lcthbridge society usually is. However warm the evening-, howev- er late the hour, they sit boxed up in a room or two playing bridge, be- cause that is the correct thing to do But those people we observed actual- ly had the boldness to In-oak loose from custom, precedent, tradition, usage, example, dnd all that regu- lates and beautifies society life.

The knocking habit can be acquired by the dullest numbskulls. It is gratifying to state that there are few, if any, knockers in the various organizations in this city, but it is noticeable that the man with the muck-rake gets busy now and again. Now, boys, get together and boost. One of the best smokers hdd in the city was brought off -hy the Brew ery Workers' Union in .the Labor Temple last Saturday evening. There was not a dull moment in the whole evening's entertainment, and the lo- cal is to be congratulated not only in the way they attended to the en a Lure comforts of the large audience who turned out, but also on the ex- cellence of the programme furnished. There was an abunndance of good Ringing talent which was accompan- Tur ied on ihc piano with much accept- ure. nnce by A. Bennett. Billie Sharrntt was there with his nogro dooll and needless to say had a great recepticn. Two special features of the evening were a" whistling solo yand a German song. BAV.Coombs, president" of the Union was in the-chair, the quiet and quick manner in which the proceed ings were conducted being tin excel- lent testimonial to his wielding of the pavt-1. From all appearances, it seem likely that there is to be another ad clition to the already long list o in the city. The local organ has had two meetings with th object of forming a local of the, American Federation of Musicians. On Friday last he met the members iif the Lethbridge Concert Band and explained the benefits of organization and at the conclusion of the meeting a resolution was unanimously adopted in its f.ivor, but, to defer further ac- tion until a general meeting of all en up, and I trust each local will come forward and help out the Trad- es and Labor Council By so doing they will give not ouly a demonstra- tion on the 7th of September of what union men can do, but will serve as a practical proof. ta those who are not already in fold the. fact that "in unionism there is strength." The Labor Day Committee have certainly a hustler in their chairman, R. J. Baldry.
