It was thought at one  time' that labor would be represented  on:both ihe?>bid"7' tickets; but .since it is  known that organized labor will iiot  take independent action. It Is believed  that labor will be entirely overlooked  as in the past. .This will give labor an  opportunity to ignore their motto, "lii  unity there.is strength,'', and vote their  cruciflers'Into'; power. Few working  men'appear to have fixed opinions as  to how- they: wlll;vote. Recent 'strikes,,  the action of .the'C.

As the  common sense 01' the people has found  private schools working for a  monopoly of education, and that out of the  best do not the privately governed colleges degrade    scientific    courses   and  magnify  the  Greek'.nnd   Latin  aristocratic' barbarities,   compelling   similar  work In  public governed    preparatory  schools (7); as it has found private malls  liieilicleiit,   private    bridge    and    road  malntenaee  insuflielent,    and    private  sewerage uhendurabl��: as they    have  found  public enterprise ? replacing private   Inleresls,   resulting   In   Increased  safety,  culture,"- convenience,    cleanliness and freedom, the people nre waking up to see that.While voluntary cooperation' often   fails,   co-operation   is  best which includes all, leaving out no  weak Individuals.

To Trades and Labor Councils and International   Local   Trade , Unions   lit  Canada, Greeting: .('  Fellow Workers and Brothers,���Tlie  time has arrived In the history of organized labor iu Canada wlien a step  in advance must be tnken in order to  meet tlie aggressive methods of those  opposed to the union of workmen. For  many years the trade union movement  has followed beaten tracks, discussed  the same questions, proposed tlie same  remedies and received the same rebuffs,  but a new departure has occurred In  the ranks of those opposed to us���a departure that must be met without delay  or else the present status of trades un  ions and their, members will be changed  to their detriment.  Tlie grea?t fault of organized labor in  the past has been that lt has kept its  eyes closed to the methods adopted by  those among the employing classes who  oppose our legitimate alms.   Recent developments have shown tlie necessity  of an immediate awakening, and your  body is 'requested therefore, to give Its  prompt  consideration  to  the  requests  and proposals contained in this circular.  The trend of.the day Is towards union,  and   the   employing   classes   have,   as  usual, taken early notice and advantage  of the fact and have united into a compact body, ostensibly for innocent objects, but in reality to ring the death  knell of trades unionism.   Thus there  are organizations like the Employers'  association, National Founders', association, the International Metal Trades association-   and    others    of   the   kind.  .Though these liodies come: to us with  sweet "words in'their mouths, their actions declare so loudly as to make? plain  their' object,  that: their  real  intent: is  aggressive antagonism to organized labor.   No better proof of? this IsVrequlred  than the. strenuous support;given.7recentlyto the. pernicious/legislation introduced in the senate, at Ottawa, for  the-, exclusion, of  the. ofllcers- and the  dismemberment of international unions.  A .united front was presented by these  bodies and their attitude was a striking, lesson to the representatives of organized labor present at the/discussion  of?the bill. Then wli'at'ls to be done?? 7  :  Stated shortly and plainly,  the one  feature emphasized is the absolute? necessity of organized labor in Canada becoming welded into one compact body  so as to; be a unit upon questions affecting? the interests? of /wage-earners.  There is a -lamentable/lack of unity In  this regard, and our very existence now.  depends upon an immediate?alteration  of this state of affairs.   The Trades and  Labor Congress of Canada   must represent organized labor for legislative pur-'  poses and the need of the day is therefore,  to  strengthen  congress in every  way. possible.   Witli labor a' solid phalanx,- more respect will be paid ,to its  representations,: more weight be attach-,  ed toils arguments nnd''more -beneficial  results will follow its efforts.   :,.?.  "'.. Your body .may; perhaps," iiot be, in a  position that calls for action in the?way  suggested,  but,? if  not,  then ive urge  you'with all thi emphasis we can bring  to bear, to do your/utmost to urge labor bodies that are now in affiliation  Wtirth'iETiWgress^^  coming affiliated. There are :today  'many, unions that, though affiliated  with their international .organizations,  have not become affiliated with congress, and to these bodies we point out  that, by a recent decision of the executive of tlie -American' Federation of Labor (with which international bodies  are federated) all locals In Canada,  whether ufilliated ? with'' International  unions or not,: not all federal unions,  are directly urged to become attached  to the congress without delay? /?   '  There Is thus unity of opinion upon  the necessity for this action; and/what  Is now required Is a unity of action  (for legislative purposes) as Weil as a  unity; of opinion.  Do not delay taking action ln th,is  matter, but follow the example of employers and act at once.  . Send applications for affiliation to P.  M.
