The bride is a, sister of A. Crick of the  Hi_.ii.vld stall".  Robert Harrington, a Grand Trunk  section man, was crushed to death  by the westbound express' on the  Grand Trunk Monday morning. Hiir-  ington was lying across the track  about half a mile from. Hyde Park  station, and was not seen by the  trainmen until the engine was upon  him.  W. Ii. Bilker, executive agent of the  C.P.-Rr-in-Winnipi'g.-who-hus-beeii-iip..  pointed assistant to .Second Vice-President JMcNichol, left'for -Montreal with  his family last Thursday, in the, private car. Earnsclilfp. Mr. Baker was  entertained to dinner by his friends  in the Manitoba club before leaving.  At Saturday's session of the International Machinist.*,' . Association a  resolution was passed accepting the  declaration that was-issued hy the  National Metal Trades Association  and hurling hack defiance. -'AVe  never will accept any modification of  our demands or resume labor unlil the  cause for which we struggle if triumphant, and u shorter work day is an  accomplished fact."  Lightning in East Ki.iiieniiy Friday  afternoon struck a large fir tree just  as the Great Northern train mi*  passing and the tree falling, struck tin*  locomotive, damaging a cylinder to  such nn extent that the engine was  rendered helpless and the train was  brought to a stand still. Word \va*>  sent'lo Bon tiers'Ferry for ar.nther  locomotive. The accident o������cured  between Creston .iirl Croston .1 unction.  In that region a very severe thunder  storm took place. .'  The Midland Railway company in  England since the latter half of 1S03.  has been using forty   American   locomotives.   Samuel XV. Johnson, superintendent of   the locomotive department of the company   says   that   the  results  of   six   months'   comparative  tests   made   with   standard  engines  under   the   same  show that the extra  working cost of  American  locomotives over those of  British manufacture is from 20 to 2">  per  cent, in   fuel, SO per cent, in oil  00 i>cr cent, in repairs.   The American  engines worked the trains satisf.ictor-  ly, but their inferiority in   the three  points named is incontestible,    American engines are made to   work   until  they die, anil English engines are as  perfect as possible for long service.  Koote-  we   have  but   still  impetus  of    the  nf     the  C. P. 11 shops from Donald and  the ci cation of a divisional point here,  We became an iinpnstant railway  point v. ilh coiisideiable additional  population ol railway men and their  families. But this change, important  as it. was. came about very gradually  and without any flourish of trumpets.  And so things have, gone on quetly  evi-r since. We have passed through  incorporation a period of depression  in the mining industry, several contested elections ai'.d other minor  troubles but nothing very stauling in  the nature of a boost io the town has  tian*-piied.  However, without venturing into  the doubtful realms of prophesy one  may fairly conclude th.it this year  will not elapse before Kevtlstoke takes  a fiesh start. And here it limy be  leuiaiked en passant that despite the  fact th'it limes have been dull and  progress may have seemed to cease  lievelstoke is at the present the seventh most important place in the piovince iii point of population and the  third in Kootenay. We have nothing  at .all to be ashamed of in our little  city. "Ve have hud grave ditliciilties  in;* the way of jour struggling Jtom-  niunity and "one liy*"'or7e 'liy-patient  etl'ort they have been overcome. 'The  townsite question, the river bank  question, the opening up of the. Big  Bend question are now. all things  of the past or practically so. But  there is no den. i g that taking each  and everyone ol them they have been  very tiresome problems, demanding  steady and persistent work and a  faith that laughed at failures. But  they are now things of history and  there are no others like them before  us. Of     course,    as      everyone  knows, there        are      . certain  people in town who consider that the  quarantine expenditure has, dealt the  municipality a blow beyond the  possibility of recovery. Were it any  use to do so, the Herald would assure  this class of croaker, that such is not  in the least likely to be the case. Revelstoke is built on too solid a foundation to be wiped out by a bill of $3u00.  If the knockers in tliis ��������� town have  failed to killed it, no $3000 of expenditure is going to do it. These dismal  Jeremiahs are themselves living  evidences that the town Ib too tough  "foFtliiif,    ���������"     "���������*������������������;=-ar-.* "���������" ���������' "   "-=-J-  those, who come here to do busiiu-s-.  Our distances may be magnilicent bin  they are at the same time decided I >  inconvenient and tend to create a pom  impression of the place on the minds  of outsiders. This detriment to the  town will almost certainly be removed  this season and handsome blocks will  till the gaps and give an appearance nl  solidity and pel uianeiice to the business portion of the town. In all these  sever il ways we are justified in expecting ii ureal change I'or the better ii.  the fortunes of lievelstoke, which wil  take a fresh start with the new  century, a stmt which before auothei  census is taken may very well leave  this city easily first in Kooteiciy and  well up in the front rank iu the  province.  .   C. P. R. Trackmen.  Telegraphic l eports are to the effect,  that the daily conferrence between  the grievance committee of the C. P.  It. trackmen and Mr. McNicholl, the  general manage!*,' were broken off last  week. Indeed tbe ollicials have  intimated to-the committee that their  schedule as presented is not such as  thu nmnagoiuent can see its way clear  to grant. They are willing to make  concessions, but the claim to a tinivei-  sal wage scale, that is the same rate ol  pay for men who aro in the service a  week oi ten years does not coincidi-  with their views ,of justice. In fuel  the trackmen have been told to prepare another schedule; one in which  various modifications shall be made.  However the trackmen .assert that  thoir schedule* merely raised the minimum and they complain that at present the older hands'are often subject  to reduction in order to be* on a level  with the most recently engaged..  The schedule that was' presented by  the committee in April deals with the  different grades fully, and for the  ordinary section man,'provides thai  the wages .on tbe'Atlantic divisii n  shull be $1.50 per day; O. and I. division, $1.50 per day; -Eastern.division"  from Montreal to" Carter and Sault, Ste  Marie, $1.50 per'day, from_ Carter to  Port Arthur, $1.05 per per day; Western division. $1 (55 per day; Pacific  division, $1.75 per day. The trackme.i  say that.the schedule must stand and  .upon*, it. alone,* are, they-prepared .to  negotiate, terms, Thus the dispute  stands. There are'abaut 3,200 men  alfected, and it is stated thnt the union  at St. Louis, which is backing them  up, has plenty, of funds,  It was btated on Saturday in Montreal th*it an appeal would bi> made to  president Shaughnessy according to  the usual procedure but the course was  uot expected to result in a settlement*.  F. Rutledge, One   of  the Men  Convicted  of  Bank   Robbery  Commits Suicide.  Frank Jlutledge, the convicted bank  robber, who, with 1-Yod. Lee Jlice,  was charged with the niiiL-dui* of  County Constable Boyd, made a determined und successful attempt to  end his life in jail Friday afternoon,.'is  announced in .Saturday's Ukuai.ij. lie  wa.s being taken, with another prisoner, in charge of one of the jail guauls,  to dinner between 2.110 and .1 o'clock,  when he made ,*i sudden dash, ���������and  springing up the stairway, inoiiiiled  to the gallery running round (he  inside of the jail, .'ID l'eet froni the  lloor. Keuching the gallery, he  gathered himself together, without a  second's hesitation; and climbing over  the railing jumped to the floor- below,  ile fell in a heap on the paving, which  is made of thick glass in an iron frame  work and crushed his skull. The  guards at once hurried to his assistance, and carried him to a cot, and  Drs. Richardson and Smith weie soon  in attendance on him.  ���������  His case wns hopeless and he died  in half an hour, llutledge was credited with heing the ringleader of the  robber trio, and lias a record a.s an  all-round criminal, and was a desperate man. lie is a. native of Streetsville  and the only Canadian of the three.  BUKOLAH&   U1*_SC.1.1IJED  The Toronto World reprints a series  of striking portraits ol the murderous  trio that terrorized fhe city and shot  down in cold blood County Constable  Boyd whilo lie was discharging his  duty.  "While all three dressed well, Fred.  Lee Bice, from his patent leathers to  his carefully parted hair, is stylish to  a degree. His nutty and fashionable  appearance has been f'requcuLly noted  in reports of the trials in which he  has figured. Clean shaven, of sallow  complexion, about' o foot 0 inches" in  height, dark hair and animated manners, apparently-, not inoro_ than 30.  years of ago, there was" -little indication of the hardened, reckless, relentless villain in his looks.      " "  But he has the reputation of having  killed a, man in Chicago. He stated a,  few days ago that he was a native of  Kentucky. - He is reputed to be thc  nephew of a Chicago millionaire.  Thomas Jones,, sometimes termed  "the tall fellow,"'   was   distinguished  'rom his companions both by his  height and his reddish mustache. He  was of pale complexion, and had been  remarked upon as being very dejected  while on trial, and not in the habit of  speaking to his counsel, wliich Ilice  und llutledge frequently did.  Frank Jlutledge, alias Wardell, alias  Dyer, who was born in Peel county,  was of similar build to Ilice. His  countenance was more indicative of  criminal paopensitics than those of his  companion-*;, but bis usual manners,  while reckless, was neither rough nor  vulgar. Early in his criminal career  he almost aucceeded in killing a guard  who was taking him from Brampton  jail to Kingston penitentiary, for  whicli olfence he had live years added  to his two year's term for larceny.  All the men have criminal records  and their last crime iimde the authorities more than ever anxious to keep  I he in.  Room for One More on  Top.  The Cape Town correspondent oi'the  London Express, in a letter to that  paper, relates a mther startling story  about the Strathconas, which heclaims  has never been printed before.  "It appears, as the story Roes, a patrol of lhe Strathconas being fired upon  from a farm house where the Union  Jack ami a white flag were flying,  searched the farm and found two Boers  hidden in a disused well. The Strulh-  conas decided to hung them. The pair  were hung up to a near-by beam. A  stall' ofiicer happened to ride upon the  scene and ordered that the two men be  cut down, but the Slr.ithiona's refus-  td lo obey the order.  "The ofiicer was furious with rage  and attempted lo cut the rope with a  jack knife, but before he could reach  Lhe rope a voice said: ���������J-ook here;  there's room for three to swing on the  beam.'  "The ofiicer turned around to get his  eye on the speaker, but he was brought  face to face with twenty stern, rough  laces, and left the house."  The Hospital Site.  J. L. Doupe, assistant commissioner  of the C.'P. It.' Land Dept, was in  town .last, week ^ind. went into the  hospital site inatter". The company do  not wish to part with the- site on the  hill just above Tappings but they offer  another free further along the' track  toward's Turtiross'sfarui.'- J. A. Mara,  who was also in-town on Saturday  had made through his agent, J.. D.  Sibbald, an offer of 325 feet by 150 on  the bank of the river adjoining H. N.  Coursier's grounds for $850.  LATEST  Fatal Colliery Explosion   Near  Pittsburg  COURT MARTIALLED AND SHOT  .������������SX������'-3X<*>3>^^  We see this year before   ns   with   a  certainty   that  easy  communication  with   the   Big   Bend will  be   secured  before its close.   That alone should be  a    sufficient    assurance    of    coming  prosperity.   It is a  district of magnificent indications of mineral weath and  ot great known   resources   in   timber.  But its wealth and resources have so  far remained in tantalizing proximity  to our doors and we have been  unable  to utilize them to further the progress  of the town.   We have felt all along  that    in    that    country   Itevclstoke  possessed an exclusive trade territory  unoqualled in the province but we have  been   absolutely   debarred   by nature  and the hidilfereni'e of the government  from  exploiting it.    Now alt thut is  altered.    In a few months a  bout will  be making regular trips on ihe upper  river and a big step towards the development of the district  will   he  taken.  What  that step means to Itivelstoke  is scarcely a matter of conjecture.    It  is  one,  which if taken ten  years ago  would  have made this place into the  premier business point   iu   Kootenay  without a possibility of a rival.  Another quarter from which considerable impetus to Revelstoke  business ought to come, if properly  looked after is the new goldfields on  Fish River. As soon as development  commences on these astonishing discoveries there ought certainly to be an  opening for trade for this point. There  are at present exactly three stores in  Midland j the district. One at Thomson's Land-  conditions ing, one at Comaplix and one at Camborne. It seems to the Herald that  our Revelstoke merchants have a bif  field np there foi'Ji pushing their  business and one of which they will  no doubt take advantage.  The signs are tbat this year will see  the consolidation of the business of  the town into a rather Ipss diffused  area than at present.

A MORE EXCELLENT WA Y  The    present    great   stiike   of   '.he  machinists   in   the   United   Slates, in  which so many of.our fellow  residents  of Revelstoke have so close an interest,  presents   many   features   worthy    i.f  attention   by   the   student   of    social  progress.    One point wliich catuii-tbtil  strike   the mind   is    the   quiet    and  reasonable manner, in which   the proceedings       are       being      conducted.  Conscious of their organized  strength  lhe  machinists approach the (piestion  wilh   moderation   and  .hroaduiiniU-d-  ness.    lt is the sense of  weakness and  insecurity   that  drives  labor   to- the  deeds   of desperation   and creates lhe  bitter   hostility,   which have   characterized strikes in the   past.    Once   the  force   of   organization  has placed the.  workers on terms of equality with  the  employers   a   strike   becomes   a mere  ([iiest.ion of strained relations between  two great   powers,   both  anxious   to  avoid the folly of  warfare.    It   seems  to prove incontestable* that.it is to the  advantage of society that labor should  be    organized.     Under    the    present  * .. ���������"'   'j*  social  conditions the struggle between  capital and labor must exist and is  indeed the inevitable outcome of the'  conditions themselves. Political economists lay it down as an axiom of their  so called science that wages must be  decided by the '"higgling of the  market." Then since ''higgling" is a  game which it takes two tn play nl,  the lowest possible wage for whicli  capital can get labor to work will  occasionally be one whicli capital is  very unwilling to to pay. Organiza  tion effects this result by limiting tlie  available supply. In the lines oi'the  highest skilled labor it controls the  supply entirely. And it is* obviously  better for the community at large that  labor should have this weapon at its  command 'in place of the torch and  nxe. We do nolsayth.it- even under*.  tl"e~lie5tr"condi"tioi]S' s<icu_-tv"as a \vl_olt;  is not injured by a strike. But at all  events it docs not have to pay  increased tax������s in order to recoup  capital for the depredationsjcominitied  by labor.  Organization stands for moderation  and civilization. The older and more  complete the organization the less  likely a strike among its members and  il such a rarity does souietiniKS occur  the moie quickly mill quietly is il  settled. Organization stands for  righteousness. It cuts across aud  battles the supposed law*; of the dismal  science of political uconriuiy, which if)  rallied lo lheir logical conclusion  -.so.ild ieduce hum.in society to a  veiitiible kingdom of S-it-m. ju.-t  as the divinity in in.m i ont inn-  ally cuts ,-ui ti<-s and b.iflles the  natural elfects of   that   giiin snuggle  work done, wliile the men who   do lh  work   are  not uiateriaily better olV  woi k lor about the seine wage.**,   have i  lo    work    as    many   hours   and   p.i.\ !  higher rents for I he same accoinuioda  lion.      They claini they should shan  in the   benefits   of ihu improvements  made,  and when the nine-hour day is  adopted things will adjust  themselves  lo   that basis nnd we shall go along as  well as we do al.  piesent   on   at ten-  hour basis,  The claim is also made by some that  production will not be materially  lessened, aud in some kinds of woik  will be fully as much per day of nine  hours as per day of 10 hours but tins  claim seems lo be oll'set by the other  claim that the. nine-hour day will call  for the employment of a greater number of men, and thus reduce lhe number of idle men whose efforts to secure  places tend to depress wages.  jMost employers, we believe, agree  that nine hours, or even eight hours,  is enough for a man to work and wish  that lhe shorter day was established,  bul, taking tlieni individually, those  who are engaged a.s many of them  are, in lines of biisinvs:s in which  coinpetion is strong and the margin of  profit close, do not. see how a shortening of the day, whicli is to materially  increase lheir costs, can be borne,  unless all competitors arc to be placed  upon the same basis, and ip. most,  instances there is no assurance of this.  Of course,- it is true that this saint*  condition had to be confronted when  the present ten-hour day was proposed and was looked upon as a very,  short one. and it was clu-ir enough  that if no shortening of the day could  take place until every manufacturer  was agreed' to it, arguments in favor  of the shorter day would be in vain  and that 10 hours a day would rem*iiii  the standard forever. If all lhe employers on one side and all the workmen on the other could be united, they  could more easily bring about the  desired reform, or at least In ing about  the desired reform, oral, least give it a  fair trial, but as this is not the condition we see no way for it but to join  the issue and see how it comes out.  There will, we suppose, be friction,  but we hope it will be useful friction,  and not that wliich only irritates and  leaves its cause still existing; that is.  the question still undecided, and to be  settled one way or the other by a  future struggle.

The Locomotive Firemen's .Magazine  for June contains a very amusing iind  interesting article tin Japan, which  touches on railroading in t hatrouiitry.  an in'st itul ion still in ralher au infantile condition to judge froin the following extract:  ������������������In most of the places in Japan lhey  do not u.-e switching engines. Labor  is very cheap, ten lo twenty cents only  a day and il. has not paid to buy a  locomotive to do the switching in any  but half a dozen of the largest cities in  the Empire. Thei el'me. they kept a  gang of forty or lifty coolies to push  the ears around in tin* sidings instead  of using yard engines. I told him that  I thought when the commerce of lhe  country inet eased very much more  perhaps they would lind it advisable  to use switching engines, and then  they could use heavier cais."  The. article is profusely illustrated  and the whole number is fully up to  the usually high standard of the Magazine.  '  The.) nne number of the -Monthly  Journal of lhe 1.

A newly located watchman's
shanty���looking exactly like the end
or a box'car���set my scalp to tingling
one night. Theie hud never been anything there* but the river before, and
when Ihe headlight glared nn lhat
verv substantial structure, 1 was sure
my cull had nriivi-d.
Another time a tool boic in a tunnel,
partly coveted with nverclothes ami a
coil of rope, started me for lhe step,
under the impression that it w.is a
rock fallen from tht; itiof. But. these
are mere harmless scares which help
lo keep one awake. The engine gets
by ihem before you get oil and you aie
back in your seat ng.iin breathing
anathema against the thoughtless idiot
who was the cause of it all. Then there
an* the other kind.
1 was poking up a long hillone night|
when a ied light suddenly showed up.
followed at once by another, indicating
that the caboose of the preceding train
was just ahead, and I was coming up
to it with astonishing rapidity. I
yelled to niy lireman to jump and we
had barely landed in the ditch when
six cars and the caboose of the train
ahead climbed all over our engine. The
train had broken in two and lhis was
the rear section that had trundled
down the hill on top of us.
Frequently I have been asked if railroad men are superstitious, j think
not. though they might be pardoned if
they were. '
One night, after the meeting, Fred.
Jones asked, with f inly well iissiimi'd
indilfcreni't* if ".my n' you fclli-is" lunl
seen a mysterious tl.igiiiuii at night
near the old stone house, ihi, side of
Ollendoif's Fill. Two m ihn-e of iho
men looked mound ipiiik and .-harp,
as though lhe question ieiniiiili'd tlieni
of something, but nobody admitted he
"Darn funny." said Fred, puffing at
his cigar liku a "iuog"on u gi.ide, "I've
seen 'im twice, 'a dunged il 1 t'u make
it out."
ln lespouse to c.ui-fnl pumping,
Jones told tne that on two occasions,
on thu night trip, a fellow had sprung
out fi nm behind the luiiisoflhu old
stone house anil flagged him ���not wilh
a lump, although il. wns night time,
but with a Hag. He stopped both
limes, but no mau w.is lo be found, not*
was ihureuny occasion for flagging.
'On the second occasion his conductor
hinted wilh _-a.lro.iil Ir.mkiiess that
Jones was dopy, so Junes said he would
disregatd thu tcllow's signal if hu ever
saw him nKain. As to details hu re-
lue'iiibeted only Unit both nights were,
brilliantly moonlit and lhat a good
bieeze was blowing.
About two months lntur, along iu
the fall, afier a heavy rain, Jones ran
inlo a bad iock-.-iliilu a i.iinrterof a
mile beyond the old stone house. His
lireman was killed, but he escaped with
a sprained ankle. He came hobbling
up to me a day or two 1 tier, as I was
oiling loiind. and said :
"Wai, 1 done it."
"Done whiii?"
"Hun by lhat stone house llagman t
was lelliii' ye about: wonder it they'll
think I'm dopy now?"
He went on lo lei! me lhat the same
fellow flagged him ihu nightoflhe
.icciduiiL ; but, with his good name iu
mind, he dropped her down a notch,
breathed defiance at the spook
through his teeth and went through
thu cut lail on end. only lo pile up on
the side a moment later.
One nighl, a long time after that. I
was killing lime on a clearance. The
moon was about full, pretty well down
in the west, and theiu was a stilt"
breeze fiom lhe same quarter. I remembered Jones' flagman and decided
he would never hai e a beltci chance
to pet caught. I shut off and let her
roll on approaching ihe.'tone house.
Waving shadows on lht track, cast
by tiees and bushes on lhe bank above,
suggested a possible solution of the
mystery. I kept my eyes fastened
leligiously on the spot Jones had
described and ptesenlly saw theie was
something there. Gradually ihe thing
took form, until, when within a tiain
length. I could have sworn th-tta man .
was in front of me waving a flag.
I* put on brakes, slowed right down,
aud gave an answeiing lout toot, but/*
he paid no attention. Then I crawled
out on lhe run board and looked at the
moon, which was just visibly abuvu
the bank at my light. As the moon,
myself and the mail came inlo line, hu
became blurred ikntl indistinct, and I
observed lhat. a small pine tiee oti.lhe
bank wns also coming inlo line with
us. When the line was complete the
flagman spread out and lost form.
Next tinie I saw Joins I told hint
ubout it, and he exclaimed.
.'���Well, I'll be darned I"
On his next day oif Jones deadheaded to the station near ihe stone
house and tramped four miles with .an
axe. The spook flagman never bothet-
ed him nor any one else iheie.ifter.
A ludicrous case of misplaced confidence in the evidence of his own eyes
was that of Pete SchnfeUlt, a crabbed,
contrary, Lehigh Valley Dutchman.
Pete had enjoyed a ten days' involuntary vacation through being *'outlieil"
by his conductoi and crew in regaid to
an open switch, and hu hungered and
thirsted for tevenge.
Coming east shortly afterward in a
dense fog and catrying while flags,
lhey crossed over at a watei-plug .'ind.
left some cars on a siding. They
backed on to the train agiin, and
while the fireman took water, Pete got
down to oil._ He found a wai in wedge_
on the front driving "box on his side,'
and pulled it down a hi!. While he
was under her, the conductor passed
and told him to call the flag when he
was ready.
Pete got his tallow-pot, gave the.
wedge a good dose of cylinder oil put
the pot on the run-boas d. finished
oiling and climbed into the cab. He
was in the very act of reaching for the
whistle cord to call lhe H.ig when he
saw what looked like the target of an
"open switch tiRht ahead ot the engine.
It was really lhu st nil' of the while Hag,
helped out by the tallow-pot, which
he Inul forgotten and left on the run
board. Bul lhe heivy fog. aided ancl
abetted by the simmer of thc safety
valve, nnd escaping steam from the
cylinder cocks, obscuied his virion
and distorted his peispeclive.
Here was a chance lb gut square
'with that conductor. A local wns
following them pietty close, and a few-
minutes' delay would "lay her out'"
| aud necessitate 'in explanation from
j the conductor as to bow he camo to
leave that switch open. Pete sat
down comfortably in his cab and
awaited developments.
When the conductor came up fun.-,
ing, Pete told him with fine sarcasm
that if he was in a hurry he had better
close lhat Rate in front of the engine.
During the intei change of courtesies
which followed this shot, lhe fireman
noted the .absence of the tallow pot,
and asked Pete il" he had had it. The
conductor referied in a -scornful manner to Pute's cranial density, and told
him he couldn't see the switch from,'
theie anyhow."
"Ish dot sol-"' roared Pete, foaniinff
with righteous indigation. "Better
you get your eyes fixed. Vat you call
dat. hey?" and he pointed triumphantly ahead, just as the fireman reached
up and lifted the lallow-pol down from
the run-board.
Of course, the supposed open switch
target disappeared, and Pele has been
trying to explain ever since.

History of the Machinists Craft
Speaking at. a Iminpiet tenderi-il last
week by the local union at Toronto to
llu: vi'i-iting delegate*** of the LA. of -M.
in response to the toast of the International A.-**.ocialion of M.'trhinisr**..
pPrc.-.idriit -la.-. O'Connell ��a'xx\ 1 hi*
in.ieliini.-t***' ciiift wis lirst inaugurated
in the United States in I.'***'''', under tin'
iianii* or the Machinists am! Wack-
smilhs l.'iiiim. From that sprang
.-onu: of the brainiest men who bad
ever lieen identified with the labour
. movement, but dissensions in l.S7."i bad
i hurt the union, and out of that, again
camo the Knights of Labour. For
'some yeai-s thi.s progressed, then dissensions and dissolution followed.
The. machinists seeing that theii* trade
was being taken away from them
thought it wa.s time tu come together
on their own account. In May, I8#8,
they formed the first organi/ation of
the United Machinists and Medianicu.1
Engineers at Atlanta, Oa. That little,
meeting in Atlanta had resulted in
this great convention in Toronto'.
They had experienced their trials, as
at the convention in Minneapolis in
lfSfi, when through the. misappropriations of one of their officers tliey
could not buy a postage stamp and
pay cash for it. But the members had
stuck by the organization, they had
pulled through, every dollar of liability
had lieen paid, and they stood now
with 00,000 machinists at their back.
