This Gazette is pre- pared and' edited at the Department 'of Labor, Ottawa, and published monthly. The subscription price is 20c. a .year, payable in advance, and is easily within the reach of every worker. This Gazette contains am- ongst other interesting topics of la- bor, the reports of trade conditions existing from month to month from Sydney, N. S., to and including Brit- ish Columbia.' Any of my readers desirous of subscribing for this Ga- zette-may do so at the Herald office any time. A' recent ..decision., affecting labor may be of interest in these strenuous times of injunctions. In Victoria. B. C., it is evident that workmen may prescribe conditions for admission to their unions. The following appears ib: the January number of the Labor Gazette: 'I The Bricklayers' and Masons' Un- ion. of Victoria won an .important .case in the judgment, of the full "court, in the suit of Graham vs. Knott, the .latter being tary of the union. In effect the de-' elision relieves .union of liability to any applicant: who refus es-to submit for a test'for admis- sion into the union and Jails to Be- cure employment as a result of his refusal to comply with the union's conditions. They may'threaten -a strike if he is 'employed and not be liable. -vGraham was a stone cutter, recent ly. arrived from England. On ar- rival, at Victoria, he. applied, .for "admission: to the Bricklayers' and Masons' Union, but refused to sub- mit to their test. 'Later he secured ernplpymont.. .but his employer re- ceived a notice from the union threatening a strike if he were not dismissed. This was repeated wherever he secured work. Graham sued' the union, and Judge Lamp- man held that there was actionable wrong and that he was" entitled to remedy. -Chief Justice Hunter and Justices Morrison and Clement, 'however, unanimously allowed the- union's appeal, holding is no.; actionable wrong, the union showing no malicious intentions, but merely protecting itself. If; space permits week I will publish Judge Lampman's address. I can assure my .readers that this will be very interesting reading, but owing limited space have perforce .to hold it over.- ,.'t A Saturday afternoon holiday h; Groat Britain was the" custom so ia.r back as the 13th century..; 'As far: are: qbneernwl, Pittsburg, i agaiV a strictly umoii on Thursday, Jan. T, the Post, Ga- zette-Times and Chro i.cic-Tftlegrain scale; --and. .with Cittsburg Typographical Union. the condition of the labor market in Australia, and the necessity of pro- venting further immigration. This example might well be copied by all Trades and Labor Councils in Cum- da, more especially those who con- cern themselves too much with affairs which do not concern them locally. Since this column was started I have bad hundreds of enquiries from my readers us to where they could get this union made article and where to the other. To solve this prob lem, I-have decided to ask the mer- chants carrying union made godds" to forward a Hst for publication in this "coluifln. and for tho benefit of the .-large number of union men in the city I trust the merchants will accept this otter. Any dealer 'ottering union label goods, for sale; can have his name and business juidress inserted upon this list, free of charge, by for- warding same to the Herald office, c.-o. Labor' World, with information specifying manufacturer of goods hand led. .There are dozens of unions as good as the Typographical Union but none "better. To prevent the -labor market -being flooded state-aided immigration, the Sydney Labor Coun- cil has decided to communicate with the vwith a view to making united representation to the labor party in Great Britain as- to' An exchange has the following which will do no union'ni'emTjer any harm, to When a union elects a member to an''-official position, it does so not to make, him a .target for-censure and that he may be a -centre around which the members shall ga- ther: to make effective the -'work of. the- organization. This is a, lesson that has not taken hard enough hold on the minds of" union-members.-" -There is a peculiar perversity pos- sessing many union people that makes them knock the man they have elect- ed to office. They seem to have an idea that because thev have elected d .v brother to office they have a dog him to their heart's content. fEhey treat him very much the way the Indians used to treat their squaws -ronly. worse. "The his squaw work, but he didn't have much to say, while the union man piles all the .work -of the organ- ization on the shoulders of .the officer and a heap of abuse on his head. If the union members who are puilty 6f this folly would have as much to say in the way of. boosting as they nave in the way of knocking, how easy'would be the- work, of the offic- ers and how successful the organiza- tions! -Think it over. the department of commerce and la- bor, to discuss questions vital to the wager of the country. The conference will consider the mislead- ing information that causes much of the immigration. Thtr heade all important organizations vrili partici- pate. Among those invited, besides Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, is An- drew Faruseth of San Francisco, pres- ident of the Seamen's The Executive Council of the Amer- ican .Federation of Labor have sent out an.appeal for funds for the de- fence of Gompers, anc Morri- son, ostensibly, in their light against JFudge Wright's decision, but it is in defence of the labor move- ment.. The decision, if sustained, will a. hard blow to the trades union movement. Not on- ly does this appeal effect central bod- ies, but each union and union man is effected; and all should contribute their mite' to this cause. Cqntribu- l-tions may be sent to Frank ilorrison, i Secretary -of the American federation of G. Wash ington, "D.'C., who will acknowledge receipt of same. Shall it be Freedom or Slavery.' The Labor Co 17.ess at Portsmouth; Eng., last week passed a resolution by j a vote of 462.000 to endors'- ing the Socialistic platform. Daniel J. Keefe, commissioner gen- eral of immigration, has, sent invita- tions to more than a score of prom- inentJe.aders. asking them to partici- pate in the? proposed "council pf la- be held on February 10 at A resolution to prevent labor mem- bers from appearing in support of any measures on the same platform as members of the capitalist pariy, was rejected by to Palpitation of the Heart. One of the fiwt danger signals that aii- nounr-e something wrong with the heart is the beat or violent throb.
