Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 28, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta tlTHBRIDQI. ^WtHTA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBEfl tS, lOM PAQC UVKN TbeWflrid of tabor Affairs of WorkiRimcn Frankly and Impartially Dit-cussed. Conespondeuce on Topics of Interest to ----------- Labor Classes Iwlted Contributed by a Labor Man, who k responsible for (he Views expressed in thisColnnn Hula oft to G. Bindboor and Co.. flic flrst businiMs house in the city, to bo grfintcd the union card, This niimiia that all iho cniplbyeos ot tliJH lirni nrc mornbci'e of tlieir roepeoUvo unions. It,iH now up to thu monihcra of tlu! various unions to sco that this enterprising store receives their pat-ronagu when ordering groceries, etc. They nro now located in their new nnd coniniodiona premises in the Stafford Blook, and n largo new fltock of nil you require is being quickly unpacked for your inspection. .While witine tlie above, I cast no reflection on a number'of other stor* t's in the city, who lack but having; one member in hifl Union to entitle them also to have this union card. Tho fact that one store ban now thie cnibleni on display should prove an incentive to those concerned to bring a little morn persua.sion to bear on the individual mombexs of their staffs outside the folds of nnionisni. Get busy. Will some kindly di.sposed i)erson inform me what the real reason i� which prevenfs the drivers of delivery rit;s from joining the Teamsters' union? I have heard of no .satisfactory reason forthcoming nnd should be |)lcased to hear the reasons of these drivers on the subject. -It was not before time that roil-way employees across the line were forrning themselves into a "powerful railway organization. I heard re-' cently that on some lines the different heads of dopartments received instructions to lire several men belonging to unions and fill their places with, non-union men. There is no doubt that a big movement is on foot to break up organized labor, arid it is so fur satisfactory to learn that an organization to be known (us the Railway Emploj'oes' Department of the American Pederation of Labor is to be instituted. The object is to bring about u closer union of the railway employees and seek to affil-iatf all railway organizations into one. Tl.'e first convention is to be hold in Denver, and it is thought 100,000 employees will be represented, which include freight handlers, machinists, car workers, blacksmiths, railway clerks, switchmen, maintenance of way employeeB and steam fitters. The 29th convention of the American Federatioji of Labor is to be held in Canada, Toronto being select- ed as tho venue for 1009. The labor unions in Toronto,, as well as all over this coinitry, will bo doliglited to hcmr this, as nil kinds of good will em m-ate from a viait of this powerful or-ganiisation. iris expected that th're will bo over 1,200 dolegntea and visitors at this convMitiou, and the eitst-ern city will find the time all too abort to make the necessary arrnnge-monts. Frank Morrison has cmnpU'led 12 years of arduous work in tlio cnpaeity i>l Secretary oi the Annnican Federation of Labor. During that time he has had tlie grulilication of watching thiM body add 1,322,000 members to it.-* grand total. May he witness 12 times that amount in the next- 12 years I Trade in the Old Country must sure be suffering front a terrible paralytic stroke. Mr, Kier Hardie, speaking in the debate on the Government's uni'mployment jnopoials, si id: amongst alher things: "In y\upu8l last the Right to Work Council ."ent circulars to the. trades' unions stoking information .ns to the ext(;nt of unoniployment^. Taking the figures together, and estininting that �nly ],'> per eetit. of skilled nrtisans were out of work-a most conservative es-linint(>-nnd iliat tint total number of .'(killed ttrti.fjans was 5,000,000-again (I low estimate-he got the number of 750,000 unemployed. In reckoning the unskilled employment, the number could always be safely put down fiH double the number of skilled and unskilled artisans logijthi.T they arrived at 2,250,000 as the number of each of these represented, in addition to himself, two dependant.^- again a very moderate estimate,- they got the appalling total of 0,-750,000 lis the number of persons conditicms the House was now eonsidering." This state of affairs will nuike the 01rn Alberta Labor Bulletin makes its bow Mot only to .the thousands ot union men in this district, but to ail the reading public. In a conversation with Bro. J, W. Kelsey, the indilishcr of this long-felt want, he informed nie that he v/as going to keep the Hulletin in tho frotit rank as a news sheet regarding unionlsnJ, and that its col-unms would be always open to all faotlons ot the labor union niove-nuMit. I trust'the venture will reap the reward it deserves-SUCCKSS. Last evening Ib'. Kelsey gave out tliM information that on account of the liberal patronage he had received 111 the bands of advertisers the pai)er will at once be enlarged to full seven coiunnis, the same size as the Daily Herald. He says that ho already has of correspondence from some of the loading labor men of Wostovn Canado. The sheet, he says, will be right up to the minute in local labor news. Hut Labor Bulletin or not, the lahm' column of the Saturday Daily Herald will still be contiimed in the future as it lia.i in the, and whon this live daily incrcafes, more space will he devoted to th? cause.
