Every typographical union in Canada should see that a "Journal" correspondent Is elected���and made to
work at It. Every secretary should
see that every member- Is receiving
"The Journal"; and every member
should see that every other member
reads "The Journal."
The business houses of Canada
should be kept supplied with International Typographical Union blotters. The members of organised
labor should be kept fully supplied
with stickers. The International furnishes them free; the least the local
unions can do Is to pay for their distribution.    Try it.

THE  UNION  LABEL.
;...������ "
(By Kempton
Unl
Kempton McKlm.)
The Union Label    originated    in
Francisco In 1874, In the white
label ot the ptgarmakers, followed in
&OT5 by the red label of the same
���raft In St. Louis, and became permanently established In 1880, at the
convention Of the Cigarmakers* In-
���srnational Union. The union label
Its become the emblem and guarantee of fair labor In Great Britain,
the United States, Canada and Aus-
ttalIa-
The scope of the union label has
extended from a single industry in
leas than twenty-five years, till it
kow includes more than fifty crafts
whose   products

household and personal use.
In concrete terms the union label
Is powerful because It accomplishes
by peaceful means, with absolute
certainty and little cost, that which
the strike and boycott seek to accomplish, at such a sacrifice and
great cost to both capital and labor,
and will continue to do ' until a
broader and wider sympathy, both
of knowledge of duty to man Is observed In the laws of construction*
and distribution.
The workers who strike in protest against wrongs may be defeated, but the public will eventually
protest and register such a powerful demand for the union label that
will make it Invincible. The label
enlists and arms In 'labor's cause
those elements which determine the
issue of every cause in civilised society, namely, the women and children.
The mistress of the household represents the "purchasing power." She
cannot go on strike, but she can obviate the necessity of striking by demanding the union label. With the
"purchasing power" in her pocket,
and the union label In her heart,
woman begins with the olive branch.
She is mistress Of the situation. To
the woman of the trade unionist
household the union label affords a
guarantee that the wages earned
under union conditions are expended
upon union products and for the
maintenance of union conditions, to
return with Interest in , Improved
conditions for all.    By demanding

This "Industrial disquietude" Is,

Factory operatives usually work

are women, for the most part young

having a -record as sn enemy of white labor unequalled
by any man on this continent,
and whose chief aim for years has
been to substitute Asiatic for white
labor in British Columbia. A man
who, as the evidence taken before
Commissioner King indicates, has
been using his exalted position- to
promote kls own financial Interests,
vetoing aa he did the Natal Act
which received the endorsation of 95
per cent of the people of British Columbia. The natural Inference Is that
he was moved In doing so by a desire
to retain possession of this Asiatic
club that he had for years used so
effectively in keeping the Lady-
smith and Cumberland wage-slaves
up in the collar, and who has now
been proven to be engaged in Importing contract labor from Japan
in secret, violating the laws of this
country that he has been pledged to
see enforced, i And as If to crown
this monument of treason to white
labor, Mr. Laurier negotiates a
treaty with Japan that permits that
Government to regulate emigration
to Canada and to dictate, In conjunction with the Canadian' employer,
wages and conditions to Canadian
labor, rendering a fulfillment or his

Again, sir, the false accusation
made by the honorable' gentleman,
that the people of the Pacific cobbc
are racial bigots constitutes Insidious slander, intended to cover, in the
syes Of the Eastern people;' a grave
< diplomatic mistake. Let me say further, and i speak from practical
knowledge, the people of the Pacific
coast are as free from racial prejudice, religious or national, as any
people that treads God's green
earth. But when a government,
elected to represent the Interest of
all the people of Canada, negotiates
a treaty with a foreign power which
conserves the Interests of five per
cent of our people at the expense of
the other ninety-five, sad which
opens our ports and- permits Canada
to be deluged with the sewerage of
Asiatic poverty to whom twenty
cents a day is a Klondike for 16
hours' service, and who for centuries have been struggling under a
condition of poverty of which we
have but a limited conception, and
under which they have evolved a system, economically, ethically and socially, entirely foreign and inferior
to ours, and which as experience in

It is doubtful, if, at any period In
the world's history, poverty was as
widespread as at present. In every
city of any slse upon, this western
continent there Is at present an army
of unemployed and poverty-stricken
people, with all of the attendant misery that this implies. Even at this
writing. Just at the beginning of
Christmas week the streets of Vancouver'are decorated here and there
with placards making appeals for
charity on behalf of the city's poor.
That similar, and even worse conditions prevail In the uup^' cities V
well known to everybody Who has
eyes to see and ears to1 hear.
That this condition is not confined to this continent is /equally
well known. The awful conditions
prevailing in such sinkholes of capital aa London, Liverpool, Paris and
other so-called great cities has long
since become an ordinary and normal
circumstance. The depths of human misery that exist In such places
can never be measured in terms of
human speech. It has been the
theme of many writers and observers but all the powers at their command have failed to paint it In Its
true and terrible colore.
Now comes word that conditions
surrounding the poor of Berlin, the
German capital, are becoming most
acute, and thousands, are undergoing the agony of starvation. It Is
asserted that during one, week re-,
cently nearly 12,000 children attended school breakfastless Charity
Is being loudly appealed to In order
to cope with the situation, with, of
all, there's not so much to    course, the usual result of pennies
the present "financial
stringency.
It simply means that the workers do
not receive wages enough to buy

such calamities in the future.
The present system of slavery Is,
In Itself, a calamity. Its evil effects
are felt In every part of the social
structure In the rottenness and corruption, vice and clime,   that   are
to-day gnawing at the vitals of human society and seriously threatening Its complete collapse. This accursed calamity that expresses Its
virulence In the exploitation and
torture of its victims In order that a
few worthless capitalists may pose
as "captains of Industry," "icings of
finance'.;, and "commercial barons,"
expresses Itself in moat acute form
when the thieving capitalists become so gorged,with the plunder
taken from slaves that they can
neither assimilate It themselves or
profitably dispose of It to other
thieves or slaves as the case may be.
Then In the midst of this profusion

slaves turned loose upon the highways with neither food for their
stomachs or means of getting It It
Is a standing rule of capitalism

wages, and their wages are fixed, by
powers over which they have no

unanimous vote of the Trades and

was adopted, and It was recommended that a copy be sent to each local

C We snggeet that the Trades and
Labor Council,, do no, more than
father this society at the beginning; that the society stand on Its
own footing under such a name as
may be chosen by the members.
D.M It should be made clear to Intending members of this society that
no capital is to be subscribed, that
the society will possess no store or
depot; that the dealer will deliver
the .goods to the house of every
member the same as at present. A
fundamental principle of such a society is that the members Will bind
themselves to accept the goods, always provided that they are in good
condition and are aa represented; a
failure to do- so will destroy the objects of the society. ;    ' ���,
E. We suggest that such a society should he composed of one representative from each union, who
shall be the Executive Of the society,
the duties of which shall be to consider all tenders and Investigate all
complaints. . \\/t\ (tian/t

The primary steps to the formation of the present American Federation of Labor waa inspired by P. J.
McGuire, then of St. Louis, later
general secretary-treasurer of the
Brotherhood of Carpenters and Join-
era; Who died recently. From letters
addressed to him by various labor
organisations a preliminary meeting
was held at Terre Haute, Ind.. Aug.
1,1891. Only a small representa-
tion was present at that meeting, but
the foundation was made which haa
grown'klntb the colossal proportions
of two million members and adherents.-       n   ''���     V"  *���-��*-*   ".

Working With Asiatic laborers is
a question that haa been thoroughly aona into, but for all that has
been said, some of our members
have been working with them. We
know that some of the boys are up
against it and that perhaps is the
reason. But we. hope ��� ,"to.,: educate >
these members to aak their employers, to have white men serve them
in future,     ;
The suggestion, same time ago for
papers to be read on different subjects with discussion, was, at the
end of one meeting, brought up
quite Impromptu but was perhaps1 a
failure. The reason was, that nothing was properly prepared and "the
members did too much talking.
They should only be allowed to speak
on any subject

for maintaining excessive cash re-;

President Gompers has lighted the
way for labors hosts on the Injunction question. The soldiers of Prance
were wont to follow, wherever in the
thick of battle, they could see {he
white plume of Henry of Navarre
waving. And SO it Is with the soldiers of the grand army of American
labor They will follow Wherever.
Samuel Gompers dares to lead. And.
If it shall become necessary, In a
Presidential year, to lead them
against the "Injunction Standard
Bearer," the political slaughter of
1892, when Whitelaw Reid and the,
Homestead strike made up labor's
casus belli, will not be a circumstance.. Politicians, remember 1892!
