In reference to tlie formation of the  .Vancouver Trades and Labor Council  recoids show that a meeting was held  on November 21, ISS'J, In the old Sullivan hall, Cordova street, preliminary  to Its formation. A year previous the  printers' union had appointed a .committee to visit the few other local unions for the purpose of forming a central labor body, but the attempt ut the  time proved to be abortive. At the  November meeting in 1SS0, there were  present representatives of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, Plas-  teiers. Printers and Painters' and Decorators' unions, tlie Amalgamated Society of Carpenters nnd Joiners, and the  Knights of Labor. Joseph Dixon, or  the U. B. ot C, presided ut the meeting,  and David Jameson ( now of Kamloops)  of the printers,' acted ns secretary. The  purpose for which the meeting was  originally convened was to tuke some  united actlo.l in the approaching municipal elections. After some little discussion the following lesolution was  moved by George Bartley, of the printers, and seconded by Geo. Irvine of the  Plasterers', which was carried unanimously by those present:  "Whereas. The representatives of the  different labor societies in meeting now'  dltion to the above-mentioned bodies,  iron-moulders, bricklayers, stone cutters, tailors, lathers, plumbers and  steamlitters, builders' laborers, tinsmiths and cornice makers, 'longshoremen, sailors, the American railway union, steainshlpmen, the Brotherhood of  Locomotive   Firemen,   machinists.  li will bo remembered that In lS9t>,  the year before the Klondike boom, n  revival of business began to show itself, and kept on improving at such a  rapid pace till at the present time  trndes unionism never was so strong or  flourished so great in the Terminal City,  as the following list of delegates to the  -Diincil will speak for itself:  Typographical���George Bartley, Geo  \VIIby, H.

Among those who took held of things  and again revived and built up ithe  powerful miners' union were, besides  the two mentioned, AVm. Neave, Geo.  Johnson, Thos. Shenton (now secretary)  =^Robti=Blakeley^(noWHH-e.sident)r-A-,=AVil-  son, T. Keith, ex-M. P. r., Rlchnrd  Booth, Henrj- Sheppnrd, Sum Wilcox,  Chas. Santy, Neil McCulsh und the late'  Thos. Salmon. The latter was delegate  to the Dominion Trades Congress at  Ottawa In 1S90.  One of the llrst thlsgs done by the union   In   lS!ir>7 when  Mr.   Smith   became  agent  was the passing of a  resolution  asking the company  to  pay the dues  to the union'of the members bj- stop-  ��� ping same out? or their wages.   Consequently every miner was forced to Join  the union.   A strong executive committee Was elected.    It was given  power  to  net-on  nil  grievances and   In   fact  an  agreement  was  drawn   to  this  effect between tho company and the representatives' of the miners.   Fiom the  inception of the union In the Black Diamond Cltj- tip to the time, when  Ralph  Smith resigned his position as agent at  the   end   of  1902   no   strike   ever   took  place,  because  the grievances had   nlwnys been settled between the management and the committee, under the existing agreement,- without resorting to  tlie  strike.    The   reason   Ralph. Smith  resigned   his   position,   ns   every   one  knows, was on.?account of the^nctions  of the socialists, who were the prime  factors in the, matter'of ,the7union?'affiliating with the Western? ?Federation  of  Miners;    Mr.: Smith  disagreed with     ...    this move,  and??predicted--that? within getic work by the members. ��� Schedules  six months the.

Since the formation of local, No. 194,  of the Boilermakers and ironshlp Builders of America, at A'ancouver. B. C.  In. February, 1S9S, working conditions  have been vastly7 improved. On the C.

It is also very encouraging to note  nn improvement Which takes plnce with  each newly-signed agreement. This Is  one of tho very best proofs that organization of tradesmen Is beneficial. It  must not be forgotten that the present good condition of affairs���the union has obtained without trouble and  cost. In 1S9S there was, a ten-days'  strike Tor.recognition, which wns won  by the men. Then again in 1900 the  strike to obtain a new schedule on the  C. P., 11. .wus'won in u month. Besides  these' two big tie-ups there have been  several small strikes? in the contract  shops. But the. men knew- always what  they wanted, -and acted fair nnd  straightforward in the matter, and no  doubt this is due to their successes.

The importance or Labor Day as a  factor in human advancement is an  indisputable and incontrovertible raet.  The lesson or solidarity that it teaches  is the antidote to a condition that is  ana^ will continue to be obnoxious to  every self respecting worker.  The fact that'every sound thinking  toiler is bravely and determinedly standing shoulder to.shoulder with his fellow worker is an earnest that in,time  the potential power of solidarity, as expressed by these annual reunions, will  be fully understood and, appreciated.  Labor Day is not a declaration of War.  It is a ray of light, illuminating the  path of the toiler on to higher achievements.  It is a public expression of unity���to  encourage the weak and discouraged  brother.  It is a notice to tlie world that labor  is. marching on to the' attainment of  justice, liberty and the abolition of any  anil .''all slavery���long may the lesson  live and bear fruit, to the end that iri  the future no toiler will be ashamed to  parade in the ranks of his fellows,  whose.name:is legion, and whose mission;, there is none grander nor more  ' important.  .Let us all join in.  Let. us also.note who does and who  floes not turn out,-in-order that their  timidity and lack of solidarity may be  taken up and dealt  w-itii.   ���   .  .

In the latter eighties and early nineties, the plasterers enjoyed a strong union. In the first Labor Day demonstration ever held In-this city tliey. carried
a 'banner'.'which' told the world that
tbey worked the eight-hour.day? for $D.
If has always been a friendly contention between the stone-cutters,and the
plasterers which of the two?unions were
the■-.pioneers in procuring ;-the eight-
hour day in Vancouver.,, So far as the
recollection of the writer, goes,the plasterers were, the ..first'.to make this fact
known. ; The plasterers sent to the
Trades and Labor? council Geo.. Irvine,
one ofthe', best men who ever sat at
that board... The union was represented
at.Its formation in 1SS9 by Delegate Irvine, who became?not only president,
but, walking delegate, of t'he council.
As a result of his duties lie had to face
the: late Chief Justice Sir Bigbee and
Attorney General -Theodore'Davie, who
afterwards -became,: chief? .justice.
"George"  was dismissed.       Of course.
In April, 1900, ,,the shingle sawyers

months' struggle, but lust spring re-
oi ganlned, and to-duy the union is one
of the. healthiest in the elty. The organization Is known as Federal Union,
No. $390, A. F. of L., and meets every
third Friday in Union hull. Among
those who have been prominently identified with, the business affairs are:
Messrs. J. Duffy. F.-E. Smith. AV. G.

members,' not tilone from unscrupulous
employers, .but the safe-guarding of
machinery and the preservation of th'
shlhglec ^industry for the whiles as
against cheap Oriental labor.;.

The number of the local branch Is 94,
and the headquarters of the international is at Chicago. The union attends
strictly to business and Is 'in a very
prosperous condition, nil things taken
Into consideration.
This unassuming organization is one
of the best conducted unions in the
city. Thoroughly business-like in its
methods, it has succeeded for the past
few years ln coming to a satisfactory
agreement with the C. P. R.'so far as
the signing of the different wage sched-
The malntenance-of-wny men meets
every third Tuesday In the month. This
body of men has faced the firing.line In
such a way thut falls to the lot of but
few unions. Everyone will remember
the great strike,between the truckmen
iind tho C. P. R. In 1901. The schedules
presented'.'meant? an Increase of some
$350,000 a year to the men. After eight-
long months of struggle the company
agreed to the terms In general of tho
union, nnd the contest terminated. The
men never referred to their victory
boastfully, but took the matter philosophically, which fact demonstrated how
thoroughly confident they were In one
another. The trackmen are now one
of the recogaized brotherhoods ln the
C, P. R. During last spring, Union No.
167, of the malntenance-of-way men
was given a headquarters in this city.

Hitherto, the workers, as such, have not  been represented ? in either the Provincial or Dominion; Houses.
