Fortunately the Printers Are
Fighters and HAVE MONEY
They Wont Be Starved Out by Pinch-Penny
The printers strike begins to-day.
A year and a half ago the workers notified the
employers that after January 1, 1906, they would
insist upon the eight-hour day in all job and book
The employers have chosen to fight. They think
they want the open shop, which means the right
to hire scabs and put the men to fighting each other,
cutting wages, stealing each others' jobs, etc.
The men don't propose to fight each other. They
mean to fight together.
They have begun the fight, and they are going to
n>m, because l/iejj are in the right.
£ight hours of concentrated nis enough.
Eight hours working at a typesetting machine,
with a pot of molten metal sending fumes into the
lungs, is enough. Eight hours of work will give all
the product that the employer should get, and all
that the man should do.
At the end of a working life, the man who works
eight hours per day will have set actually more ems
of type than the man working nine hours. For the
extra hour tires the man, lowers his vitality and
shortens life.
The employer may say: I would rather work
them out quickly and get new ones," but the work'
man, strange to say, has different views. In the
Argentine, where horses were so cheap, it was the
fashion to buy them for the street car lines and
literally work them to deathit hardly paid to feed
them. It did not pay at all to take care of them.
The horses had to stand it. They had no union,
no intelligence, no funds.
The printers have all three.
Already Big Six alone has contributed over one
hundred thousand dollars to the fight of the men for
eight hours. That has a refreshing sound, hasn't it?
It is pleasant for a change to hear of men that n>or£
having a little ready cash to put their hands on. It
gets rather tiresome to hear always of the Wall Street
gamblers that dont work having all the money in
The printers are also raising a nice little fund
of fourteen thousand dollars a week just now to
carry on the strike, and they can double that, if they
have toand then treble it.
They wont be starved to death.
And they wont be scared to death by the em-
ployers' threat to put girls in their places.'*
In the first place, the girls cannot do the work.
In the second place, the girls will prove mighty un-
reliable scabs," as the employers will find out. The
average girl puts decency above money.
In the third place, right wins in this n>or/d, and
men so mean and heartless as to brag of putting weak
women and girls at a task fit only for strong men
are bound to lose a fight. Cowardice always loses.
We shall keep track of this strike carefully. And
we shall take pleasure in observing and telling which
ones among the publishers that talk so finely of mor-
ality and good citizenship help out honest workers,
and which ones go into the scab business, and the
working of girls in place of men.
All over the country we shall soon be dealing
with the open shop" idea, that dearest heart's wish
of the treacherous, labor-hating Civic Federation.
A few big men, having wheedled a few labor
leaders, none too strong-minded, into joining them,
are now talking of the open shop, of importing Chi-
nese coolies, quite calmly, as though these were all
open questions.
They are not open questions. They have been
settled in this country once and for all. And the
labor leaders who discuss them, and who treat them
as open questions, in their frantic desire to hobnob
with such fine union" men as August Belmont, will
find themselves out of their leadership, unless a light
shall dawn upon them.
The workers are tired of seeing their leaders
sitting in council with managers of scab enterprises.
They know that the leader who would not meet and
treat with the owner of a small East Side scab tailor
shop has no business hobnobbing with die owner of
a scab railway system.
The workers are fortunate in having such men
as the printers to lead off in this big fight for the
preservation of the labor union idea, good wages and
reasonable hours.
The printers will win.
When the fight is over, we advise them to scruti-
nize closely the leaders who have made it a business
of late to deal on friendly, society" terms with their
enemies, thus getting the open shop," scab labor,
Chinese coolie idea spread broadcast.

Write for descriptive booklet.
Here's to those whose work enobles. spreading light the whole world through:
May your tribe increase and prosper, and reverses be but few;
May your aims be grand and lofty, like the giant Rockies near ;
May the welfare of the printer be the principle most dear.
MANY members of the International Typographical Union are buyers of type; ail
are users of it. Printers should know everything possible about type and its
manufacture, and we want you to let us tell you of Superior Copper-Mixed, the best
type in the world.
Our type derives its name from the metal used. It is an alloy of lead, antimony,
tin, and copper, the percentage of the latter metal being so great that Superior Copper-
Mixed Type is in a class by itself. The large percentage of copper gives it extraordi-
nary durability, and the great amount of tin and antimony in it makes it much lighter
than any other. Hence, besides being the most durable type there is, there arc more
characters in a pound of it than in the same quantity of ordinary type. These arc
matters of experience familiar to all users of Barnhart type.
The lining system adopted by us is perhaps of greater interest to the compositor
than lightness and durability. In our system the standard of measurement is the
point, just as it is for type bodies. Tlie width of a type is called its set," and as in
our foundry this, too, is measured in points, ours is well termed the Point-Line, Point-
Set, Point-Body system. Every letter of our lining type is an exact multiple of points
in width. In other words, it is self-spacing.
Most of our lining type is on what is known as Uniform Line, this including the
body and almost all the display faces. As an example, all type on this line on a
12-point body has a 3-point shoulder below the letter, regardless of the style of the
face. Hence if one is setting, say, a legal blank in 12-point law italic, and at the
beginning of a paragraph there is a word or two in a black text on the same body, the
two faces will line perfectly without any attention from the compositor. Brass rule
for the blank spaces is lined with the type without other aids than leads and slugs.
But there are fonts of all caps, which require less shoulder; and faces with long
descenders, such as scripts, that need more. Hence two more lines are necessary.
Fonts without lower case are cast on what is termed the Cap line, in which the
shoulder is one point for all sizes to and including 30 point, and 3 points for 36 point
and larger. If a 12-point Cap-line face is used with a 12-point face on Uniform line,
the two will line perfectly if a 2-point lead is placed below the Cap-line type and
above the letters on Uniform line.
Neither of the lines described will answer for a face with exceedingly long
descenders, and for that reason what we call Script line is used for types of that
character. A 12-point Script-line face is one point above the 12-point position of
Uniform line; that is, four points. A 60-point Script-line face has an 18-point shoul-
der, as against one of 12 points for Uniform line and of 3 points for Cap line.
Our lining system is far more perfect than any other for three vital reasons. First,
in our Cap line there are but two positions, as against several in every other system.
Second, the position adopted for faces on our Uniform line gives a much more regular
and perfect gradation of sizes than is found in other systems, as comparison will show.
Third, there are no kerned descenders in our lining faces that the press can break, this
being true of our system alone.
There is no need to tell you of the value of our lining system. You know how
much time will be saved by bringing faces to perfect alignment without the use of
paper and cardboard. You see examples of printing every day spoiled so far as beauty
is concerned for no other reason than that the various faces could not be made to line.
We are sure the explanation above will cause every printer who reads it to recommend
Barnharts Point-Line, Point-Set, Point-Body type, cast from Superior Copper-Mixed

Were You Ever in a Type-Foundry?
We wish every printer could make a visit to our foundry and see for himself how type and leads
and slugs and rule and furniture are made. They would leave with a store of information, and would
know that Superior Copper-Mixed Type and everything else we make is so perfect that it cannot be
improved upon.
From the men who mix the great cauldrons of Superior Copper-Mixed Metal to the men in charge
of the delicate matrix-cutting machines and the almost human automatic type-casting machines, there
is not one who is not a past master of his art. Thats the kind of men it takes to make type of the
Superior Copper-Mixed grade. Thats why our type and other things are so satisfactory to printers.
Intelligence and skill operating perfect machines and appliances produce results beyond criticism.
It is h^ard for the layman to realize the minuteness of the ten-thousandth part of an inch, and
harder still for him to understand that a variation so microscopic would make any difference. But it
IS important; a variation so great would in our foundry condemn any type in which it occurred. We
divide it by ten, or even twenty, SO THAT OUR TYPE BODIES DO NOT VARY SO MUCH AS
THE HUNDRED-THOUSANDTH PART OF AN INCH! Type-founding is a trade requiring greater
skill and care than almost any other. Years of hard work, study and experience must be spent before
the workman becomes proficient, and claims that those without knowledge of the business can take
this or that machine now offered to printers and cast good type are nonsensical vaporings. As well
say a boy can be taught the printers trade with a few hours instruction.
The attention we give to the small details is one reason why the compositor using Superior
Copper-Mixed Type does his work so easily and well. The lines seem to justify themselves almost
automatically, and when two or more bodies are used in the same line everything fits perfectly and
glides into place easily and naturally. Our lining system is a great help, too; it saves an immense
amount of time and wonderfully improves the appearance of printing.
You all know at least those of you do who have been in the business ten years or more the
fatiguing mental strain under which you worked in the old days, especially when the take was a
trifle more complicated than usual. You remember that at the close of the days work you were often
utterly tired out, both mentally and physically. The work is easier now, and the improvement in the
type and other material you use is responsible for much of the betterment just how much you will
hardly realize until you can see for yourselves the pains and care and skill devoted to the manufac-
ture of Superior Copper-Mixed Type.
Yes, we wish you could all see for yourselves how carefully we make our type. Then you would
understand the important part it plays in lightening your labors and in raising the artistic standard
of your work, and would one and all use your influence to secure the use of Barnhart products

A HOME Convention is what the members of the
International Typographical Union have looked
forward to in the approaching Fifty-second
session to be held in Colorado Springs, Colo-
rado. In honor of the meeting, and to deepen and prolong
the impressions gained of the Home City, the committee
has endeavored to issue a souvenir book that will be a con-
stant and pleasurable reminder of the days spent in the
shadow of Pikes Peak.
When the session of 1896 was held in this city, the
Union Printers Home was largely in its experimental Stage.
Those who saw it then will now behold an institution that
has taken foremoSt rank among institutions of its class; the
nobleSt monument to the spirit of trades unionism in the
world, and a source of pride to every union printer whose
labor has helped in its upbuilding.
Typographical Union No. 82 takes pleasure in placing
this Souvenir in the hands of its invited gueSts, and through
it to extend to all a hearty welcome to the City of
This opportunity is taken to express deep appreciation
of the liberal advertising patronage accorded this book, and
of the invaluable assistance rendered the committee of
arrangements by business men as individuals; by the vari-
ous business mens organizations of Colorado Springs, and
by the advisory committee selected from these organizations.
Committee of Arrangements.

IN presenting this Official Souvenir of the Fifty-second
Convention of the International Typographical Union
to its readers, the committee wishes to extend thanks
to all who have aided in the work, and especially to
the advertisers who have so generously bestowed their
patronage upon the Souvenir, thereby making it possible for
the committee to issue so elaborate a publication. We urge
upon all into whose hands the book may come, and par-
ticularly upon members of the printing trade, wherever pos-
sible, to turn business to the firms and persons who have
thus shown their interest in the publication and in the craft
which it represents.
The Committee on Souvenir desires to express its appre-
ciation of the efforts of the following who have materially
assisted in making this book what it isartistic, interesting
and unique:
To the Prompt Printery of Colorado Springs and to
each of its employes, who have one and all taken a personal
interest in the work, especially Mr. Charles F. Bickett, the
pressroom foreman;
To Mr. F. C. Barks, artist, and Mr. W. M. Cocks,
engraver, with the Williamson-Haffner Company, Denver;
To Mr. A. E. Chasmar, of the Chasmar-Winchell
Press, of New York City, for valuable suggestions;
To Mr. George Rex Buckman for his excellent article
on Colorado Springs; and
To all the many friends who have in one way or another
shown a kindly and helpful interest in the work of the
Committee on Souvenir.

The Story of the Union Printers Home
Mr. Wamack was chosen to write this Gory of the Union Printers* Home, being
assigned quarters in the Annex, where he had an opportunity to see the workings
of the Home from the inride. He was given identical privileges with other residents
and was amenable to the same rules. He had unre&rirted liberty in the preparation
of the Gory, the objell of the Souvenir Committee being to give readers a thoroughly
unbiased account of this great institution. Editor.
The Writer
ELLO, that you, Deacon?
Hadnt gone to bed, had you?
Oh no, not at all, came the cheerful reply, when as
a matter of fact the overworked superintendent had retired
two hours before, as any Christian would have done.
Well, continued the voice at the other end of the line, this is W. A.
Snyder. I wanted to tell you that I believe we can get a contribution to our enter-
tainment fund from------.
Deacon received this suggestion as nothing short of an inspiration and turned
once more to the downy couch of sweet repose.
Then it was that I modestly invited his attention to my presence at his door.
Again was the genial superintendent charmed. The prosper of trailing through the windy night in a
bath robe from his cottage to the Annex with a new resident and patient, was, naturally, a thing to tickle the
fancy and delight the senses.
Guess well put you in the emergency ward, he said as he placed my traps in an airy chamber
containing three comfortable cots and turned to bid me a cordial goodnight.
Im an emergency, am I?
Yes, and a Cheerful Idiot. Everybody on this floor is, he promptly replied.
Youll find out tomorrow.
And I did.
The Tenderfoot Getting We were all Standing in the firSt floor Annex hall awaiting
Hospital Broken the hreakfaSt It was my firSt appearance. One of
the boys I happened to have met before gave a distressed cough. Think youll go
home in the spring? I maliciously inquired. The laugh was on him and I was on.
Already I had noticed the superior ventilation of the Home, and in the dining
room of the Annex I was more impressed with it than before. A room more airy or
better lighted I never saw. My firSt meal I ate with huge satisfa(5tion. There was
plenty on the menu and the cooking was to my liking.
For a bunch of professionally sick men I felt that moSt of them distinguished
themselves at the table. I dont wonder they did so, for the atmosphere of that dining
room would inspire the senior Rockefeller with the appetite of an aborigine. Every-
thing from the altitude to the distance between meals at the Home is calculated to
increase ones desire to devour things.
Perhaps you dont know it, but it is a solemn truth that people inclined to lung
trouble are tremendous gossips. This applies to men and women alike, and I am sorry
for the local reputation of the person not initiated who tries to live in an institution or
resort where both sexes are admitted.
Well, at the Home they are no better and no worse than elsewhere. I wasnt
fairly through my firSt breakfast until my appreciation of the fleshpots of Egypt

An Airing on Home Grounds
was the sensation of the Annex and promised me an enduring reputation.
About 1 1 oclock that morning I became ravenously hungry and frankly
admitted my State to a man in one of the sun rooms who sat next me.
Some fellow with his back to me said in a Stage whisper to a companion:
His beefsteak this morning was half as big as this newspaper.
To which pertinent remark the one addressed aptly replied:
Yes, and he has been walking all over the place. They ought to put
him in the laundry or on the garden.
I ought to confess that one thing which gave zeSt to the moments
spent in the dining room was an exceedingly pretty waitress, the roses
of whose ever-blushing cheeks were a perpetual advertisement for Colo-
rados climate. She called red Mexican frijoles by the prosaic and
wholly inadequate name of beans, but one forgives a pretty woman a
great deal. Once, however, I felt that she had gone too far. She asked me if I would have my eggs fried!
Shades of Englands Royal Society for the Prevention of the Spread of Tuberculosis! Who ever heard of
any sane person, much less a lunger, eating fried eggs?
But I was- outraged worse than this. Indeed, I doubt if my delicate organism ever entirely recovers
the shock. The man with the wealth of auburn whiskers who sat at my right, and who paid frequent
compliments to the high development of what he was good enough to call my elastic arm, ordered pork
chops! I hope he was possessed of tolerable intelligence; I know that he was in indifferent health, and yet
he probably would have spurned a proposal to commit suicide by taking some poison a trifle more direct.
Later I learned that he was also addicted to hot cakes.
One thing which bothered me considerably my firSt day at the Home was that some of the men got
eggnog at 10, 3 and 9 oclock, and Loewenthal, of New Yorks Big Six, also got a toddy at night before
retiring. It made me homesick and lonesome. The firSt person in authority I was able to locate after this
highly interesting discovery was Mrs. Deacon, who is quite the most wholesome person I have ever known.
She fairly radiates good health and sunshine. To hear her laugh is better than medicine. Unto her I
went in my distress, and said: Mrs. Deacon, I am afraid Im getting much worse.
Too bad, said she, with ready sympathy, (She is a mother to every resident of the Home).
What seems to be the trouble?
Well, I replied, as near as I can make out, my case is identical with that of Loewenthals.
Did she understand? Well, I was on eggnog at 10, 3 and 9 from that blissful hour.
The Bridge Committee
at Work
My fir$t breakfast duty performed, I reported to the sun room of the Cheer-
ful Idiots. Already I was on the bridge.
Bad case, said Loewenthal, No. 6.
Good appetite, suggested George Mesick, Chicago No. 16. Which remark was a sharp undercut at
Loewenthal, who is quite the Star boarder of the Annex.
Thats only at the Start, commented Johnny Moore, No. 6.
Yes, affirmed Charlie Dygert, No. 82, juSt wait until the
reaction sets in and watch him mince.
Gentlemen, this choice quality of hot air belongs to the
Kind Words club, piped up ErneSt Webb, Toronto, No. 91.
If he is to be a Cheerful Idiot we muSt back him up.
Anybody can see at a glance, declared Harry Scholton,
No. 82, that he is of the timid sort that needs protection.
He is, Mesick agreed, and the thing to do is to appoint
a body guard to watch over him for three days and see that he
doesnt founder, or attend one of Ed Mulligans phonograph con-
certs, always so fatal to new arrivals of a sensitive nature.

officio, we feel a kindly interest in one so young, so innocent and, A View of Flower Garden (1903

Kind Words
Depend upon it,
my very firSt
morning at the
Home I went on a
tour of discovery. I visit-
ed the tents and found them
wonderfully adapted to their
purpose. I took a peep into
Gardener W. H. Dunmans
greenhouse and was delighted
with the array of bright plants
and fragrant blossoms. I saw
August Thommen in his egg
orchard, feeding his thousand
singing hens. Later I saw him
milking his sixteen good Hol-
Steins. One of them yielded
three gallons to the milking and
AuguSt apologized for her be-
cause she wasnt fresh! There
was much to interest me in the laundry
and the heating plant.
Its a wonder youd dare visit us
in here, said R. B. Hindle, St. Louis,
No. 8.
And why not? I wanted to know.
Because things are so unsettled in China
juSt now, the good old patriarch said with a
merry twinkle in his eye, that none of us Chinese
laundrymen are in decent repute in America at present.

Such gentle humor among the residents it is that gives the Home a peculiarly sweet and cordial atmos-
phere, rivaling the spirit of some fine old college.
In the Home now are 150 cards and on the waiting lift a few worthy slugs yet remain. The main build-
ing has seventy-five rooms and 100 "old prints" can be made comfortable there. The hospital annex, in-
clusive of the ten tents, can care for fifty patients.
In the sunny library I found a big crowd. Indeed I never visited it that I did not find it full to
the overflow. It simply muft be enlarged. In it are some 2,500 volumes, and I was touched to see how
well they were thumbed. Every book upon those shelves has been proofread again and again, and the pub-
lishers would blush to see how the ftained yellow margins teem with corrected errors of type. I was as
delighted as a child to find how many of these competent old critics confirmed me in my appreciation of
Charles Dickens. Not a volume of his was there which had not been handled until the leaves were come
apart. By all means, let us rebind Dickens at once. Not a few of the late books are autographed pre-
sentations from the authors. This is a game to booft. Everybody should write to somebody for more of
Ding-a-ling-a-ling sounded the welcome dinner bell, and I fell in line with the old veterans of the art

all were very old. I assure you nothing nobler exifts under the sun than the splendid I. T. U.s gracious

is 76 years old and the youngeft man in the building when it comes to rugged vigor. For eight years he has
been the faithful and invaluable mail carrier of the inftitution. There was George H. Weaver, No. 6, with
his snow-white hair, his vigorous body and clear brain, the only preacher who shares the comforts of the Home.
Deeply I regret that I have not a pretentious volume, or at leaft a monthly magazine, in which to tell the ftory
of these veterans of the Home. What fanciful yet truthful tales might not one pack between the backs of a
fascinating novel in which would be recorded the sayings and doings of these old men, who are the fading
remnants of a day the world will see no more.
James Martin, No. 49, I saw, and you may be sure he was discussing municipal ownership. C. A. V.
Putnam, Washoe, No. 65; Jimmie McLaughlin, Philadel-
phia, No. 2; John Frary, once National Secretary, and
Captain H. P. Macloon, No. 49, always the ariftocrat, made

ate as hardy mining men should eat and then dreamed, over
their pipes, of fabulous ftrikes on the Three Ethels. Chris
Sturgeon, No. 6, minced daintily as a man who weighs
only 226 pounds can afford to do, and the genial Jack Scott,
No. 6, managed to worry down a few morsels to suftain the
225 pounds with which he keeps Sturgeon company.
Rather odd, how often Ive had to drag in Big Six,
Home Flower* isnt it? You see the membership of that union contains one-

seventh the membership of the I. T. U., and between one-fourth and one-fifth of those
at present availing themselves of the Homes privileges are from that large union. In
the Annex nearly all of the patients are from the larger cities. Of course, Denver and
Colorado Springs are accredited with a great number, but that is because many men
from the EaSt work in these Western cities for some time after they are ill, and when
they are finally overcome they go to the Home from the local unions. Toronto, Mon-
treal, Winnipeg and Halifax are represented. Chicagos German-American Union has
one resident, and formerly the Bohemian Union of that city was represented.
One face among the old men I missed: John C. Hunter, Toledo, No. 63. They
told me he was sleeping now at Evergreen. He was a good old man whom everybody
respedted and admired.
When a resident of die Home passes away he is given such a burial as he might
receive were he in the bosom of his own family, did he possess one. Services are always
conducted by the minister of his chosen faith. Union Printers* lot at Evergreen is
indeed an evergreen spot, but I thought it too bad that it should not be marked by
some appropriate monument that the passing tourist might at leaSt know the calling of
those resting there.

I saw you at St. Louis in 1904 I never expedted to see you alive again.** Mesick

obituary notices. I guess more than you took me to be a goner,** he said,

came and he has worked mir-
acles with me. I have been so grateful to everybody concerned, and especially to the I. T. U., which makes
such care of us boys possible, that I have never done anything that could possibly retard my progress.
Afterward I found other cases like that of Mesick; men who had been desperately ill and who cer-
tainly will be restored to their families and to their work.
But it is vital that they come in time, Superintendent Deacon often repeated to me. We cannot
bring the dead to life, but if the unions will send us their firSt-Stage men we will restore them.
I was Struck with the intimate knowledge which both Mr. and Mrs. Deacon possessed of the case of
each man in the Annex and by the individual care which each received. Another feature which I much appre-
ciated was the marked home-like atmosphere of the Annex, which was much enhanced by the kind and
thoughtful care of the nurse in charge. Their sympathetic and cheerful ministrations do much to aid
recovery, and are a noticeable subjedt of appreciative comment among the residents. A nurse is on duty
day and night.
Among the life-saving agencies of the Home, none is more notable than the tents. I have never seen any-
thing in that line more complete or effective. They are removed a comfortable distance from the hospital
Annex, but the patient can summon a nurse night or day by touching a button at his bedside. This buzzer
tells the nurse that she is wanted at once in one of the tents. She hastens toward them, and is advised by a red

signal of distress, which tent it is in which she is needed.
By the side of the buzzer is a switch which the patient
throws to turn on a red light in front of his tent. Within
his home of canvas he has an eledtric light for domestic
purposes. There is a floor of

Tem Colony the ground with adequate ven-
tilation both below and above. The fresh, pure air
circulates freely within the tent at all hours and yet there is ample Steam heat to keep the tent at a com-
fortable temperature. No patient who is in grave or immediate danger is placed in a tent, but when one
is on the highway to health he finds his chances of recovery enhanced by tent life. All of those who
have tents are delighted with that mode of living and are proving the value of the system by their excep-
tional progress. I do not consider the coSt of some $ 130 per tent a thing to balk a system so emphatically
helpful. It would be fortunate if the tent city were more than doubled.
Indeed it might not be amiss to remark here that the Home is too crowded in all departments. That more
generous accommodations muSt soon be provided, is only too evident. Not only is the Home now taxed to
the utmost, but a considerable waiting list exists. Those who need its comforts and ministrations and who
are entitled to them should not be delayed. Especially should this apply to those who are ill. The neces-
sity for sending tubercular patients to the Home at the earliest possible Stage in the development of their
disease can not be too Strongly emphasized.
Strangers at the Home are quick to appreciate the quality of the food supply. It is unexcelled. Every-
thing is of the beSt. There is an abundance of all wholesome necessities. In the refrigerator I found
nothing except prize beef and prime meats of every sort. As for the milk and eggs, they
Food^Supply 6 are not t0 surpassed. Thommen is now receiving fifty-odd gallons of milk from sixteen
cows, besides feeding several calves. Not a small portion of the veal used is of Thommens
own butchering. While some eggs are sometimes purchased in the wintertime for cooking, all of the eggs
served at table and raw to the patients of the Annex are fresh laid at the poultry barns of the Home.
Not only is this an economy, but it serves the residents with a quality unpurchasable. Frequently, table chick-
ens are provided from this source. Whatever is purchased is of the be£t. No hotel in the city is served
with food of a better quality than that obtained by the Home. All local sources of supply realize that
the Home desires the be$t and the merchants cater to the Home trade in every possible manner.
Besides the quality of the foodstuffs, that which adds moSt zeSt to any meal is the manner of service. In
this the Home excels. With the linen always inviting, the service prompt and polite, and the cooking of the
highest grade, there is small wonder that the veterans of the main building find nothing to be desired, or that
the patients of the Annex find their indifferent appetites likely to mend at a most encouraging rate.

of Tent
Home Sanitation and
the unions supporting them. If a patient were permitted to do as he pleased, you may
depend upon it that he would frequently please to indulge in those irregularities which
are the undoing of good health. To what, indeed, if not to irregu-
larities, do most men of broken health owe their misfortunes? Printers
above all men are liable to such negligence in
condudt as superinduces illness. Those rules
which Superintendent Deacon enforces with so
much rigor are a providential safeguard for the occupants of the Annex.
Patients must rise at 7 oclock and retire at 10 oclock. They mu$t be
regular at meals and they cannot leave the premises at night. They
owe these precautions to themselves and to the Union, but there are
perhaps too few who would Stridtly observe these common-sense rules if
the matter were left entirely to their own election.
Then there are general disciplinary regulations which apply to
all classes of residents. Drunkenness is not tolerated. Two warnings
against this fault are followed by dismissal. Fighting is not allowed,
and the violation of this rule means expulsion. In fadt, any unbecoming conduct is rigidly reStridted. This is
fair to all residents and makes for peace.
A Misunderstood
Those neat devices which are the sanitary safeguard of every well-regulated establishment where
tubercular patients are admitted, look like nothing else in the world so much as missionary jugs which the
juvenile zealot uses to solicit funds for the civilized destruction of the poetry of that Far West, somewhere
beyond the Pacific, which teems with gentle barbarians.
Do you know Charlie Carter? In spite of Charlies positive energy, his Step eledtric and his grip of
Steel, he was once sufficiently negative in health to make the hospital Annex look to
him like home, sweet home. One bright summer afternoon a row of hopefuls from
Lungers chapel adorned a bench on the shady side of a vine-clad summerhouse. Of
course, each was accompanied by his little box. Now it happened that the grounds were fairly alive with
visitors that bright afternoon. One elegantly dressed gentleman who carried his fifty years with that dignity
attaching to a position of honor and truSt, .and with which a Kentucky colonel carries his burden of juleps,
lagged behind his rather smart party in order to inquire the name of a rare plant by which he had been
attracted. He really was from Kentucky and he thought he had discovered a new mint.
Coming suddenly upon the row of Cheerful Idiots with their useful and picturesque small boxes, he
halted before Charlie Carter in a hesitating manner, fumbled in his pocket for a second and finally produc-
ing a quarter of a dollar, leaned over Carter with the benign air of a philanthropic and tried
to find an opening in the miniature perambulating cuspidor in which to deposit his gracious
Beg pardon, Im sure, he said with some embarrassment, but if that is a
contribution box, how do you get into it?
Really, my dear sir, Carter hastened to assure him, this is touching,
and, I might add, it is unconsciously so. These arent contribution boxes.
Theyre cuspidors, and the Union Printers Home prefers not to accept any-
thing in charity, however kindly might be the source of such good gifts.
Charlie said it slowly and it soaked in. You could tell it was
taking by the numbers of colors which the face of the benevolent
gentleman hastily took on. He looked like a human chameleon as
he Stammered an inarticulate apology in overwhelming confusion
and beat a double-quick retreat. After all, upon refledtion, per-
haps he was glad it wasnt true, considering the number of
contribution boxes in that astonishing line-up. In fact, the old
gentleman muSt have imagined he was up againSt an endless chain
system where contributions are taken while you wait.

Amusements at Sports of all sorts there are, out-
the Home door and indoor, of a nature in
which all may in some degree participate, if only as
interested spectators. In the winter the croquet ground
is a skating rink. Summer and winter, baseball is in
season. Billiard and pool matches and wonderful
prize tournaments at cards are always bestirring a gen-
tle excitement among the men, while the excursions
abroad with their famous Mulligans and the marvelous
entertainments of Deacons All-Star MinStrels are occa-
sions never to be forgotten. The picnic programs are
replete with lively contests, the Fourth of July and other
"Mcl" K.tcham Riin. in T.nt fe|e ^ barbecues challenge the appetites of all union
printers within a hundred miles, while the glory of the
minStrel shows of the Home are uneclipsed by the splendor of the midday sun.
Christmas eve laSt, the Home had its firSt Christmas tree, the suggestion coming from the employes
and being heartily indorsed by the superintendent. Every resident and employe received a present from
the prettily decorated tree and a delightful hour was spent in social intercourse. It is the wish of all that
this be made an annual event, and with a little assistance from some of the locals it may indeed be
The Hebrews There was one person at the Home who found no joy in the glad season of good will
Stocking and peace unto men. He was a Hebrew of few years in America who knew little
of the institutions of the country of his adoption.
Mr. Mesick, I dont wise to this Christmas business, he said the afternoon before. Is it true that
if youse hang up a stocking yousell get a fine present)
As true as you live, Mesick enlightened his benighted friend.
Then Ill hang up four Stockings, he averred. And he kept
his word.
This is a case for the matron, Mesick soliloquized. Going
unto that lady he said: This day have I sown good seed for the
proselyting of an unbeliever. Can I enlist the delicate and subtle
support of the faireSt of Philistines?
And the matron of the Home, who was a Christian at heart,
answered him and said: Yea, verily, thou canSt. Thou and
all the Cheerful Idiots who are with thee. And we will cause this
descendant of Isaac to be of our faith and abide in our councils.
And it came to pass that when night was fallen and the residents
were assembled about the tree the matron said unto Mesick: Are
the young mans Stockings hanged?
And he answered and said unto her: They are.
Go, then, saith she unto him, and search diligently for the young man, that I may have knowl-
edge of where he at this moment conceals himself, and when I know where he is, behold I will do the reSt.
Then went Mesick and found him making merry with the others and feaSting his eyes upon their
Christmas tree.
And the matron took potatoes that were mature and biscuits that were hardened of long service, and
onions that gave forth a savory odor, and with them she did fill the young mans stockings, even unto the
Interior of Tent
Now, when the expectant one found what was done unto him he was exceeding wroth, so that he emptied
the burden of the hosiery in an unsightly heap before his tent, swearing vengeance upon his enemies. And
when he had reriled those who had persecuted him, he took himself to Colorado City at an unseemly hour,
and did tank up upon waters of fire.

Therefore did the superintendent up and forthwith present the derelid with a short take, and
when he saw what was come unto him, he spake unto them and said: Behold ye have all of you
despitefully used me and I am sorely undone. Give me, I pray thee, my transportation unto New York, that
I may hide my face in the bosom of the Bowery.
And those things which he spake were done unto him, even as he had desired.
Two Blades of Grass In my Stroll about the premises I was Struck by the excellent care of lawns, the
Before cultivation of plants and shrubs, and the intelligent husbanding of trees. All of the
old-timers at the Home were eager to tell me that this was the work of Superin-
tendent Deacon. When he arrived May 15, 1898, few indeed were the blades of grass and scant the foliage
which adorned the grounds. Now in summertime the Home plot blossoms like a rose.
If there is one employe on the place in whom Mr. Deacon relies more than the reft, that man is the vet-
eran orderly, Alma Jaques, who to this day carries ounces of lead which his wholesome syftem absorbed
in the course of the Civil War. Soon after Deacon came into the
management of the Home one of the bad men of the place
decided to offer up the new superintendent as a sacrifice to his
wrath. Mr. Deacon gently disarmed the fellow, carried him to his
room and told Jaques to see to it that the terror remained in con-
finement until the next morning. During the night the nurse ran to
Jaques in great alarm to solicit his aid. But Jaques was im-
I will have you dismissed! declared the angry nurse.
Perhaps you will, said faithful old Jaques, but I am too
old a soldier to leave my poft without an order from my superior
Another View in Flower Carden
Saturday afternoon came and I witnessed the unalloyed joy of pension day. The Pension Day and
spirited manner in which the residents line up, is calculated to inspire a desire in the be- Requisition
holder to voluntarily implore the privilege of having his Home per capita increased. And you never saw
such abjerft misery as is depitfted upon the faces of those who are in temporary disgrace, and who have con-
sequently received a shorttake.
Pension day is the big feature of the week. Then almoft everybody goes to the city for tobacco and to
see the Empire matinee, which is a free treat.
I was pleased to note the neatness with which all residents were clothed and the uniform whiteness of
their linen. I learned that each resident is liberally supplied with all necessary apparel. A simple requisi-
tion from the matron supplies his needs.
An Example to the Among the residents of the Home I found
a ftrong spirit of pride that the I. T. U.
was firft to eftablish such an inftitution to care for its aged and
infirm. It has been an unqualified success, and ftands a bright
and shining example of that noble feeling of brotherhood which
should be the inspiration of all labor and fraternal organizations.
This is but another inftance wherein the I. T. U. has sought
to bring to bear upon other labor organizations the spirit which
inspires all of its movements. At present the plan for a
national Home is being agitated by a large number of other
organizations, which will undoubtedly result in the building of
similar inftitutions.
The matron told me the ftory, and she laughed from the
memory of it until the tears ftood in her eyes.

They call John H. Busbey, Shreveport, No. 155, Kit Carson, because for a long
time he persisted in exploring the prairie about the Home with a wicked gun upon his
Stooping shoulders. His room got to be feathery with live birds, dead birds and birds that
were Stuffed. He called them specimens, and I suppose they were.
" But there remained one unfulfilled ambition in this mighty hunters life,
and that was to slay a prowling coyote with his truSty gun. Spring, which ever
brings love gush and bad blood, brought for Busbey the sneaking coyotes dismal yowl.
Now, Ill tell you what, said Busbey to the night watchman, those yellow curs
are after the Home chickens- and I wont Stand for it. Ill tie a long String to my big toe,
drop one end out of the window, and tonight when those hungry creatures of the wild, set
up their barbarous cry, you come along and give that String a tug, and Ill do the reSt.
Well, the signal worked beautifully, as you shall presently hear.
That very night the watchman was breaking in a new man on the job, and,
says he to the new man: Bob, one thing you muSt never, never forget, and
The Coyote Humer that is to pull this String at 2 oclock every morning, and pull like the devil when
you do it.
Its about two now, says Bob, and the night watchman replies: Then youd Busbey and the
better pull now, and pull hard. Coyote
Poor old Busbey jumped plumb into the middle of the room, yelling like a Comanche. I guess he
thought he had pied a form of agate, or had been given a two-column take of Dutch names to be machine set
from longhand copy. Then of a sudden he remembered about die coyotes and the signal, and he was down
Stairs in a jiffy, clad in slippers and a nighty, with his gun held stealthily at a ready-aim-fire position. Fifty
yards from the cattle bam, Busbey saw a crouching brown figure and he let go at it good and Strong.
The creature neither yelled nor flinched, so Busbey let it have it again and again, until he had emptied
four broadsides into the prairie villain. Breathless, he arrived at the scene of his slaughter to raise a pros-
trate and beriddled calf hide which had been temptingly and conspicuously tied to a poSt.
Rumor will always conned the association of Cheerful Idiots with the crime upon old Busbey, and
I have even heard it breathed once or twice in a quiet way that they were aided and abetted in their dastardly
foil by a lady high in authority at the Home. You know, of course, that this laSt is something I wouldnt
dare repeat, especially since the matron herself gave me the bed part of the dory.
Busbey is an old man, but I dont believe it would be the better part of valor for a man many years his
junior to broach the quedion of coyote drives with any suspicious suddenness.
They Fight With the I am taking this pidure home, said Mrs. Deacon, as she entered the office of
Sword Is^roken *he Home one morning. In her hand she held a neatly framed photograph of the
Deacon family group.
Four years ago, said she, an old man asked me for this pidure. I gave it to him and he took
it to the city and had it framed. After that he kept it hanging above his dresser. Sunday we left him at
There is an unsung heroism about those chaps in the Lungers chapel. They fight with the hilt
when the sword is broken. In my day among them not one word of complaint
or bitterness did I hear. I was always conscious of their unspoken gratitude
for this place of red. Fifty per cent of them will live to see the day
when they are again at the case, dooping over the forms, or at the
keyboard, but from association with them you could never tell
who of them felt that no more for them would sound the call of
time and the click of type. Indeed, those beneath the shadow
excelled in cheerfulness those who again will hear the call of life.
One night we were talking of the plan for an annual Chrid-
mas tree. One of the fellows said: Mr. Warnack, mod of us
will not be here next time, but put in a good bood for the tree,
so the unions will send us money which the committee may expend

for gifts for the residents who are here. Why, I was be-
trayed into asking, can you not remain as long as you need to?
Oh, yes, came the cheerful reply, we can Stay as
long as we live, but-------, and a fit of coughing finished his
Dear Sir: This will serve as notice that you

lation of Rule 8; said offense having been committed

Fraternally, Charles Deacon.
Now, mused good old Billy McBride (Wil-
liam H., Nashville, No. 20), who, being from Ten-
nessee, would not know the difference between apple brandy and soothing syrup;
now, said he, I call that adding insult to injuryhandin you a short take like that, and then addin that
hes fraternally yours.
The Arrest of McBride was reading the notice over James McGuigans shoulder, but McGuigan
^ngler needed no consolation. He was blissfully unconscious of his many tribulations.
Thats a great trick with Charlie Deacon,' continued the good old Tennesseean, with a hearty
chuckle. I mind how he talked with one of the boys for half an hour once, and as they parted Charlie calls
him back an says: By the bye, heres somethin' for you I came dura near fergittin, an he ups an hands him
one of these short takes.
So it was back to Milwaukee for McGuigan. Came the day of his deportation, and the superintendent
was sorely perplexed by the problem of seeing him safely and soberly aboard the train. Leaving his limited
wardrobe at the Home in his dresser, McGuigan boarded a car for the city, carefully supporting two empty
suit cases. He had slipped away some hours before train time, with the evident intention of a visit to Colorado
City to weep his farewell upon the bosom of some friendly barkeep.
Exasperated by McGuigans ruse, the superintendent telephoned the police Station to have a patrolman
meet the car at Tejon and Pikes Peak avenue, and keep the fugitive in custody until train time.
Youll know him all right, Mr. Deacon explained. He is small, spare, 65 years of age, and
slightly under the influence.
Now, when the car arrived at the given point, two husky coppers boarded the eledtric vehicle and pro-
ceeded to drag therefrom the dignified and highly indignant person of Julius T. Engler, the Home libra-
rian. Mr. Engler knew nothing of the plan to take McGuigan into custody,
and he was so mad that he gave both policemen a warmer reception than
. they had bargained for.
I dont wonder Deacon wants you taken care of, one of the men
in blue remarked to the librarian, for you are a bad one.
Then Thomas McGill, Cleveland, No. 53, who is the really, truly
and only original Charley Ross of Philadelphia, explained to the virtuous
limbs of the law that McGuigan, inspired by the forethought of true genius,
had left the car at the Santa Fe Station and that said McGuigan being then
and there at the aforesaid Santa Fe Station, he could not possibly be ar-
rested at Tejon and Pikes Peak avenue.
Whereat, you may be sure, other explanations and apologies followed
with great dispatch, and after these vain endeavors to soothe the feelings of
the outraged librarian, the officers hurried to the Santa Fe depot in time to
see the complacent McGuigan receiving, with a benign smile, the baggage-
maSters checks for his two empty cases.
McGuigans Unwilling Substitute
Since the Home was founded by Childs and Drexel, I suggested
one evening during a pleasant chat with Charlie Gallagher, of No. 6,

there have been thousands expended in extending and mail
taining it. Have you any idea of the amount?
I did not know at the time that I asked the question that
was to discover the moA remarkable statistician I have
ever met.
Gallagher is a mine of figures. If you were to ask
him the number of blossoms in the Home gardens, the
number of birds in the trees this year compared with laSt,
I veritably believe be would be able to furnish you with
the data.
I see you are a vicftim of the common fallacy,
said he, that exists even among our own membership,
that this Home was builtand, as some believe, en- Reliable Mail Service
dowedby the late George W. Childs and Anthony J. Drexel.
This misunderstanding came from its former name, The Childs-Drexel Home For Union Printers.*
It was originally known by this title because the union printers felt extremely grateful to, and wished to
honor, these two benevolent gentlemen for a gift of $5,000 each to the I. T. U., in token of their appre-
ciation of their life-long friendship for union printers.
The Home was built and is maintained by the membership of the I. T. U.
Aside from the $10,000 contributed by Messrs. Childs and Drexel, and a small bequeSt by Julia A.
Ladd, the six hundred thousand dollars spent upon it has come voluntarily from the pockets of union
Six hundred thousand dollars, I Stam- Popular Fallacies and
mered. I thought the contribution of each Interesting Figures
member of the I. T. U. to the Home fund was but 10 cents a month.**
Precisely so, he replied. In fad:, it is exadly three and one-third
mills per dayless than the wages earned by the average union printer in
half a minute.**
When I had asked Gallagher for figures, I did not realize that
he would get into denominations that only existed in the school books.
Ten mills make one cent, I recalled. Then it takes three
days* contributions to the Home of an individual member to make
HfeinLynch'ajr"u11 UP the sum of Uncle Sam*s smallest coinone cent! How could
he miss it? What a world of good it does!
Without hesitation the Home Statistician quoted die following figures, which I afterward verified:
Original coSt of the main building, $70,114.44; Annex, $20,082.54; superintendents cottage,
$3,400; laundry and its equipment, $12,241.55; barns, greenhouses, corrals and other outbuildings,
$10,000; fire escapes, $2,000.
The tents, in which such wonderful cures of tubercular patients have been accomplished, coSt $2,000.
The beautiful granite archway at die entrance to the grounds was completed for $1,500.
The Home has eighty acres of land. There are five hundred shade trees, between six and seven
acres of lawns, and over five thousand square feet of
cement walks.
My particular interest in things human and
material has always been a heart interest. That night
I lay awake for a long time contemplating die value
of figures.
I had never before realized what wonderful
things can be accomplished by real co-operation.
The world can learn a great moral and social
lesson from the union printers of the United States
and Canada and their Home.
Feeding the Home Chickens

Residents of the Home know better than almost all Sunrise at the
others in the world the glory of the early morning. Only
those whose campfire sends its light blue trail winding among high hills, or who
witness the transfiguration of dawn upon the desert, see the beauty of days
coming as it may be witnessed from the Home.
They forget that between the Home and the hills lies a city of men
with its enterprise and its care. They feel a close kinship with Cheyenne
mountain and a sunny friendliness with Pikes Peak.
Shifting the gaze from the grandeur of the mountains, the Stretch of the
plains lies before the view like the ceaseless roll of waves at sea. There is a
height and breadth and depth about that broad, sun-laved expanse which
sends a mift to the eyes and sets the heart to a quicker beat.
I have long known the West and long have loved its glorious amplitude,
yet for magnificence I think the view from the Home challenges the world.
With its oceans of clear space for a background and its rim of snowy peaks
to the fore, the Home view is incomparable.
Imagine what muft be the wonder of one newly arrived from the East as firft
his eager eyes drink the splendor of this generous panorama, and I think you will
understand the emotions of La Salle when firft there swept before his enchanted vision the plains of the
Weft; of Balboa as, in the name of Spains queen, he flashed his burning sword
athwart the palpitating bosom of the Pacific; and of that aged Moses
who, trembling, Stood tiptoe upon the mifty heights of Sinai, and gazed
with untellable yearning upon that pearl of Asia whose promised
gates were then forever barred to him by the hand of Israels God.
Faithful Orderly
When the
Shadows Fall
For a vision of pure loveliness, nothing could be more ex-
quisite than a view from the Home of the city by night. I shall
never forget the inspiration that view held for me my firft night within
the shelter of this temple of reft. The Home was
so ftill I might have been its only occupant. I
remember as I looked out upon the sparkling
city before me, a great peace seemed to possess me. There was
in that deep calm such a suggeftion of ftrength, health and of all
good gifts that I said to myself, nothing so well expresses the
Home as its powerful silence at night.
When my too brief visit was closing, and for the laft time I drew the snowy linen of my cot about me
to gaze out upon the sleeping city, shining like a tiara or a sunburst, only a little less brilliant than the ftars,
over my drowsing senses there ftole the same soothing solace which came to bless me with its calm when firft
my eyes refted upon that scene of delight.
Then, as I awaited the coming of that slumber which needs no wooing, my laft conscious thoughts were:
I demand that the serenity of this Home shall enter my soul, that its peace may abide with my spirit lifes
sleeping-time, and calmly assure my deeds by day.

A Struggle for Eight Hours and Peace
EN should work to live and not live to work. For all Time capitalas
represented by the owners of the tools of productionhas maintained
a contrary view. The special privilege of the classes has been to
exploit the masses in the way of profit on labor. With the invention
of the firSt labor-saving machine came the desire on the part of the
toiler for greater industrial liberty, in the form of lesser hours of labor
in order to live. We are told that there should be no objection to
work. In the main this is true, but there is objection to the applica-
tion of every possible hour to work, for the employers private gain.
Work may take several directions. It may in the firSt instance be manual,
as represented in the effort for the employer; and in the second instance
it may take the form of mental improvement, or any other avenue that
meets the personal desire or pleasure of the individual.
In the typesetting industry, which formerly was covered by the general
designation of printer, improvement in method was extremely slow; but
when that improvement came, its prog-
ress was extremely rapid. The newspaper industry firSt felt the
effects of the typesetting machine, and coincident with the
introduction of that labor-saving device came the desire on
the part of the newspaper printer that animated his fore-
fathers of the pa$t ages. He wanted to reduce the hours of
his employment at his trade. He succeeded in that aim, and
today the eight-hour rule applies generally in the newspaper
establishments. The book and job trade, because of its
complexities, was a difficult field for the machine to fill, but
gradually the obstacles were overcome, and today there are
thousands of these labor-savers in operation in the com-
mercial branch of the printing art. The book and job
printer was thus imbued with the desire that had impelled his newspaper brother to progress, and the
demand gradually grew for a shorter workday. As a result the nine-hour day was established, and now
the eight-hour day is in general effect. Owing to environment, the publishers of daily newspapers are less
able to resist demands that are based on justice than is any
other class of employers. There may be the same inclination
to resist that appears to govern the owners of capital gen-
erally; but there is not the opportunity, for the reason that
the business is peculiarly liable to be affected disadvanta-
geous^ by industrial Strife. But the book and job employing
printer is in a different class, or at leaSt he is imbued with that
idea. He is a manufacturer and is governed by the rules of
conduct that are followed by manufacturers generally.
Consequently, in a period when the spirit of resistance to the
demands of the wage earners has been fostered and has
reached its greatest development, it is only natural that there
should be Stubborn resistance to any further improvement or
change in the conditions under which the employes of the

book and job capitalists are obliged to labor. Controlled on
the one hand by this spirit of resistance and blinded on the
other by the anti-trade-union feeling that has been generated
by associations of manufacturers, the United Typothetae of
America believed it an easy task to secure a victory over the
International Typographical Union, in case a Struggle was
precipitated because of the eight-hour demand. Indeed, the
master printers rather welcomed that Struggle, and forced it
in several localities prior to the general Strike. How fallacious
was the idea that all that was necessary for the defeat of the
eight-hour day was to resist, has been proven by the Strike
that has spread over nearly a year. The trade-union move-
ment has seldom witnessed such Stubborn resistance on the
part of the employers, and such determination to succeed on the part of trade unionists, as have characterized
the effort of the International Typographical Union to secure the eight-hour day for its book and job mem-
bers. In this opposition the master printers have been encouraged and supported, morally and financially, by
other associations of employers.
There seems to be a deep-seated conviction on the part of associated capital that the success of the Inter-
national Typographical Union in its effort for the universal eight-hour day will mean the eight-hour day for

has its lessons for other unions, and these lessons are fraught with valuable rules for the conduct of indus-
trial warfare. It is quite generally admitted that our Strike has been the moSt peaceful of any of the general
conflicts of recent years. We have observed the law. We have been exceedingly careful to refrain from
any aCt that would affront the sensibilities of the general public, whose sympathy is accredited to be of such
moment in the clashes between capital and labor. Despite all this, we have been haled before the courts in
an unprecedented number of instances, and we have been charged with all of the crimes, or contemplated
crimes, that usually make up the application for injunction
writs filed by corporation attorneys. It is also true that in
the vastly greater number of the cases, the judges have
accepted the affidavits submitted by the employers attorneys
and have promptly issued temporary injunctions which were
later made permanent, despite any evidence that the Union
might advance.
The law-respeCting and law-abiding citizen, revering
the institutions of his country and jealous of his liberties, can
not but view with apprehension the action of federal and
State judges in trampling under foot all law or sense of right
and justice in order to aid capital in throttling the aspirations
of the wage workers. If these various injunctions, while jmsta FcwPicket.

having no appreciable effect on the progress we have made in
our strike, will arouse the people to the danger that confronts
them, then they will be at leaSt of value in working a reform
in injundtion methods and court procedure.
The Steadfastness of our members has excited the
admiration of their brother trade unionists. When it is con-
sidered the Strike has extended over many months, in some
instances for a full year, and that for every day of all of this
time it has been necessary to picket the unfair establishments in
order that competent men might be given early opportunity to
join the union and fight side by side with union men and
women for a shorter workday, the industry of our members in
their own behalf will be estimated at its true value. It is no
pleasant task to Stand in all kinds of weather in the Street, subjedted to the indignities that the employer can
find a way to inflidt, nagged at by minions of the law anxious to curry favor with leading citizens,* and
then attempt to enlighten and convert a worker, a traitor to his fellows and often only anxious for the wage
that is paid him, and oblivious to all prospedt of future welfare.
Many people take into consideration only the coSt of a Strikethis or that Strike coSt a million dollarsor
two million dollars were expended. What a terrible waSte of money! In our conflidt, a conservative esti-
mate of the loss of money paid out by the union, in money loSt in wages, and in money loSt by the employ-
ers, is at leaSt five million dollars. But the coSt of a Strike is a bagatelle as compared to the benefits that will
accrue in future years. For more than fifty years, the newspaper men Struggled for equitable conditions; Strike
after Strike occurred, but in the end industrial peace was achieved. This history will repeat itself in the book
and job branch, resulting in a period of peace and prosperity that we hope will laSt many years.

OLORADO SPRINGS, sitting in the sunshine at the foot of Pikes
Peak, has been the theme of many pens. Long before General Palmer
chose as the site of his resort city the level plain over which it has since
spread itself, explorers had told of the wonders of canon, rock and
medicinal spring that were found at the base of Colorados sentinel peak.
The early colonists were enthusiastic propagandists, and they loSt no
opportunity to set forth by letter and in magazine and newspaper the
marvels of scenery which environed their new home, and the charms of
its climate. Helen Hunt Jackson in pre-eminent degree, and many other
gifted writers of the earlier days told in narra-
tive, in verse and in Story the delights of
residence in the region of wonder and charm
lying under the shadow of Pikes Peak.
Stories of healing began to come from these upland
plains, and soon physicians were sending sufferers
from various chronic ills to find cure or alleviation
from the tonic air and abundant sunshine. Thus it came about that die settlement of
Colorado, and particularly of the Pikes Peak region, was a diStintft result of climatic
conditions. The empire of climate, says Montesquieu, is the moSt powerful of
all empires; and the truth of this assertion has been amply demonstrated in the history
of the Rocky Mountain region and in particular of Colorado. More potent than all
the gold and silver in her mountains and all the abundant resources of a virgin land has been her health-
giving and health-restoring climate in planting upon this upland plateau a population drawn from almost
every quarter of the globe. Since 1870 the Stream has been a constantly increasing one until it is safe to
say that of Colorados present population of half a million or more, fully two-thirds came diretfly or in-
directly from considerations of health.
The fame of Colorado Springs as a health resort grew rapidly, and its reputation became established
in Europe as well as in America. It is not surprising, therefore, that
the International Typographical Union, after searching the country
over for the ideal spot, should have decided upon Colorado
Springs as the location for the Union Printers Homethat
institution which in a peculiar sense embodies the fraternal
spirit and lies close to the heart of every union printer in the
land. The dedication of the Home on that May day in
1892 was a notable event in the citys history. It brought
together a large number of prominent journalists and pub-
lishers, among them Mr. Childs himself, who had never before
been west of Chicago and to whom the trip was the event of a
lifetime. Associated Press and special correspondents saw to it that

the event and the pre-eminent attractions of Colorado
Springs were heralded to the world. Harpers Weekly
had a special correspondent on the scene, and his
article forms interesting reading at this time, as show-
ing the favorable impression made upon a visitor by
the Colorado Springs of more than a decade ago.
The dedication at Colorado Springs, on
May 12th, of the Childs-Drexel Home for Union
Printers, wrote the correspondent, is an event of
wide interest, and, indeed, of international im-
portance. Preparations looking to the fitting
celebration of this event have long been
* making, and the ceremonies are attended by
large numbers of distinguished people from
all parts of the United States. Six hundred

members of the National Editorial Association, on their way to the San Fran-
cisco Convention, make their only Stop on the transcontinental journey at
Colorado Springs to assist at the dedication; and Mr. Childs himself, whose aversion to traveling is well
known, and who has never before been weft of Chicago, is also present, accompanied by a distinguished party.
Then follows a brief account of the origin of the Home idea, the selection of Colorado Springs as the
site, and a description of the building. The correspondent then proceeds:
The Home has a superb location, and the view which it commands is grand and inspiring beyond
expression. In the foreground, at its feet, lies the beautiful city of Colorado Springs, famous the world over
as a health and pleasure resort, and visited annually by thousands of people from all parts of the world. At
the further edge of the city, and Stretching from north to south as far as the eye can reach, are the majeftic
mountains of the Pikes Peak range, with the kingly Peak directly to westward, its summit rising 14,147 feet
above the sea. Five miles to the southwest, in all its splendid length, lies Cheyenne Mountain, beloved of
H. H.,* whose grave lies far up upon its rugged, sun-bathed slopes. To the southward is seen the Green-
horn range, sixty miles away, diStindt, massive; while beyond this, and 120 miles away, rise the twin Spanish
Peaks, purple in the distance, yet seen with a distinctness only possible in the transparent atmosphere of these
upland regions.
From the eminence upon which the Home Stands, many of the scenic features which have made Colo-
rado Springs famous can readily be located. There are the Cheyenne Canons, great clefts in the granite,
where rock-walls rise perpendicularly 1,500 feet. Near their entrances, and at the foot of Cheyenne Moun-
tain, lies the Broadmoor Casino, to find the equal of which, in elegance and completeness, one muSt visit the
moSt noted of the Old World spas. Directly westward is the town of Manitou, five miles
distant, where are found the medicinal waters which
firSt made the Pikes Peak region famous. Here are
the entrances to three canons of wonderful beauty
and grandeur; and here, also, is the lower terminus
of the Cog Railway, a marvel of audacious engineer-
ing, which has recently been completed to the very
summit of the Peak itself. Turning the gaze a
little northward from Manitou, the gigantic rocks
forming the gateway to the far-famed Garden of
the Gods may be seen rising above the level mesa;
and still further northward is the entrance to Glen
Eyrie. Blair Athol and Monument Park are still
beyond, yet all within the sweep of a six-mile radius
from Colorado Springs. A Strange and fascinating
region is this, which has called forth the wondering
admiration of tens of thousands of visitors from all

In Williams Canon
parts of the world. It is in the midst of such inspiring and wonder-
compelling scenery that the Printers* Home is situated.
The choice of Colorado Springs as the location of this noble
institution is a moSt admirable one. Situated 6,000 feet above sea-
level, with a light, dry, and tonic atmosphere and an abundance of
sunshine at all seasons of the year, it has a climate the fame of
whose health-giving and health-reStoring properties has become
world-wide. Happy the printers who in years to come shall
receive the ministrations of this climate within the walls of the
Childs-Drexel Home!
It has become almost trite to say that this little city at the
foot of Pikes Peak is unique; but the fad: remains, neverthe-
less, as a glance at its history will show. Chance, which usually plays an important part in the founding of
cities, was altogether absent in this instance. Among the many and varied resources of the region lying at
the eastern base of Colorados culminating mountains was seen to be its climate, and a health-resort city was
early included in the plans for the conquest and development of this inland empire. Its location was not
decided upon without a careful examination and comparison of the several places laying any special claims
to eligibility, but from the firSt it had been a foregone conclusion that at the foot of Pikes Peak was to be
found the ideal spot. Many things conspired to make the claims of this locality supreme. To it all the Rocky
Mountain explorers of the early days had one by one been attraded. Thither, in the year 1806, had
journeyed the intrepid Pike, lured on by the vision of a snowy peak which seemed to elude him as he
advanced. Lieutenant Long, crossing in 1819 the plains to which he was the firSt to give the name of
the Great American Desert, had likewise reached the base of the great mountain; Fremont, in 1843,
and Ruxton, in 1848, had climbed it, and drank of the sparkling waters that bubble up at its base. For
all of these, the beacon summit and the region lying at its foot seemed to have a unique interest and rare
fascination; to it, largely through their glowing reports, had been drawn the attention of the public as to no
other locality in all the Rocky Mountains. They

of numberless enterprises engaged in development work all over the
Rocky Mountain plateau and literally from Montana to Mexico.
It was Colorado Springs that built the Colorado Midland Rail-
way, traversing historic Ute Pass and superb mountain scenery on
its way to Leadville and the West. It also took a prominent part
in the development of Aspen and generally of northwestern Colo-
rado. There was scarcely a portion of the entire Rocky Mountain
region into which its energetic citizens did not carry their adivi-
tiesopening mines, reclaiming large areas by irrigation, and
harnessing Streams for the development of eledric power. And
all this was before Cripple Creek began to make itself felt as a
factor in the growth and development of our Pikes Peak city. During the
discoveries in the spring of 1891, the new gold camp had been a constant and, at times, a serious drain on
its financial resources. For it was Colorado Springs that had undertaken, pradically alone and single-handed,
to determine the value of the new gold fields lying less than a score of miles distant. It was Colorado Springs
people who Staked the firSt claims, who drove the firSt tunnels and sank the first shafts, in the search for the
hidden treasure. Meantime, the reSt of Colorado, wholly skeptical, looked on with apathy while Colorado
Springs poured its money into the whilom cow pasture. But when the golden veins were at length Struck,
and the camps magnificent future was assured, it was discovered that Colorado Springs owned fully two-thirds

Creek should be seen by every visitor to Colorado. It is safe to say that nowhere else in the world can be
seen so many important mines grouped together in so small an area. From the cars of the electric lines that net-
work the district, one can see scores of operating mines, while everywhere the hillsides are being scarred by
trench and tunnel in the search for the gold-bearing veins. Cripple Creek is unique in the world of mining,
and would well repay the visitor were it at the end of days of weary Staging, instead of three hours of
luxurious travel from one of Colorados principal cities.
Though busy with the development of mining camps and the
various resources of a new and rich country, Colorado Springs has
yet had time for the establishment of institutions that minister to a
refined taSte and the social needs of a cultured community. Of
clubs there are five, three in the city and two in the suburbs, a
majority of them occupying beautiful, and in some cases coStly,
homes of their own. The hospitalities of the El Paso, the lead-
ing city club, have made it favorably known in every city in the
land; and the Elks are housed in a handsome building recently
completed at a coSt of $60,000. The Country Club, surrounded
by ample grounds at the base of Cheyenne Mountain, is the scene

society. The Broadmoor Casino, which also Stands under the
shadow of Cheyenne Mountain, on a plateau commanding a
superb view of plains and mountain range, is one of the citys
famous resorts, which numbers among its attradions music of
a high order and a cuisine of unusual excellence. From the
day of its founding, Colorado Springs has aspired to be an
educational center, and these aspirations are being realized in
the growth and development of Colorado College, already
taking high rank among the institutions of the land. One of
the group of handsome buildings, the newly completed Science
Hall, is shown among our illustrations. Equally notable has
been the growth of the Young Mens Christian Association,
housed in a building that would do credit to a city many times the size of Colorado Springs. For the citys
attractive public library, it is indebted to the generosity of Mr. Andrew Carnegie. Among the citys numer-
ous hotels, the Antlers can be singled out for particular mention without
any fear of invidiousness. It is a ho&elry famous throughout the land,
affording peculiar satisfactions to the visitor from whichever of the
worlds capitals he may have come. The illustration gives some
idea of its noble proportions, but the elegance of its appointments
and the perfection of its service can be known and appreciated only
by its guests.
Although Colorado Springs is environed by a wealth of natural
scenery, the development of nearby beauty spots has not been
neglected. With a generosity nothing short of princely, General Palmer
is giving to the people, for their enjoyment and behoof, a system of parks
that alone would make Colorado Springs a highly favored city. The principal of these
are Palmer Park, covering a series of picturesque bluffs three
miles northeast of the city, through which roads and trails have
been constructed, and which is connected with the city by a
boulevard; and Monument Valley Park, into which money is
being poured in lavish fashion, with the result that the
erstwhile valley of shifting sands and barren wastes, border-
ing the city through its miles of length, is being transformed
into Stretches of greenery through which wind graveled
walks and drives, with beautiful lakes and trees of many
!K_Ll/E kinds. This same generous benefactor is constantly opening
new roads and trails into the mountains, and improving old
ones, now and then buying a mountain, if its possession seemed
necessary to protedt some beauty spot or scenic feature from com-
mercial vandalism. A notable example of this road-building is the so-called High Drive, which leads from
Bruin Inn, in the North Cheyenne Canon, over a lofty dividing ridge and descends into Bear Creek Canon,
affording enchanting views of mountains and plains. Stratton
Park is another greatly appreciated resort, situated near the
entrances to the Cheyenne Canons and at the terminus of the
elertric car line. Thither the people go in vad crowds to enjoy
the shade and the dashing dream and the freedom of out-of-doors,
and to lideo to the excellent music provided for their enjoyment.
Our illudrabons can give glimpses only of these parks and
mountain-scaling roadways.
A city of wealth and a capitalistic center, Colorado Springs
has banking inditutions of notable drength and solidity, with
deposits aggregating about $10,000,000. Numerous sanitariums

Country Oub
and hospitals testify to the benevolent spirit of its people. There is surely
no city of its size in the land which contains so many beautiful and
coaly homes. With a population drawn largely from the
eaaern Sates, and including in its citizenship many who, as
valetudinarians, had wandered the world over and lived in
the mo& cultured cities both of the Old World and of the
New, it is almost superfluous to say that the society of Colo-
rado Springs is eminently delightful, possessing as an added
charm a distinct flavor of cosmopolitanism. The city is in no
sense a hospital; and it is a matter of remark that even its
sanitarium features do not at all obtrude themselves.
If the reader has followed us thus far, he has been
impressed by the fa importance and peculiar character to the reputation it has
achieved as one of the worlds health and pleasure resorts, and to the grow-
ing knowledge of its charms as a residential city. The result has
been a notable one, and hence the conditions which have brought
it about mud themselves be noteworthy; and such, indeed, do
we find to be the climatic conditions which prevail on the
Rocky Mountain plateau and at the foot of Pikes Peak.
Of this climate, whose charms and fascinations have formed
the theme of so many pens, we have not space adequately to
speak. Indeed, it seems almod like a wade of time to attempt
to describe that which in many ways is indescribable, which mud
be experienced to be underdood. A light, dry, tonic and electrical
atmosphere, the result,of an elevation of 6,000 feet above the sea, with
an abundance of sunshine and clear weather, are its dominant features; to
which should be added the further very important fa<5t that it is
almod equally good at all seasons of the year. Dryness is a very
important characteristic, the mean relative humidity being less
than fifty per cent., and the average annual precipitation about
fifteen inches, the greater part of which is in the form of dashing
summer showers; while from the fird of October till the fird
of April scarcely a drop of rain is seen. The snowfalls are
uniformly light, and snow rarely lies on the ground for more
than a few days. But this bare recital of meteorological fads
conveys to the reader but an inadequate idea of the climatic conditions which hold and
fascinate a population drawn from almod every part of the world. It js the warm sun-
shine that floods these upland plateaus, rendering infrequent the days, summer and winter, when it is
not a delight to be out of doors during mod of the hours of sunshine; and the dryness of the ground that
renders out-door amusements agreeable, with but occasional interruptions, even throughout the winterit is
these and the tonic air of the brilliant, breezy summers and the rain-
less winters that conditute the charm of this incomparable climate.
What this climate has done and is doing for tens of thousands
of invalids, the growing reputation of Colorado Springs abundantly
exemplifies. Here the asthmatic almod invariably finds relief;
consumption in its earlier dages is arreded and cured, and
amelioration afforded at all dages; the long train of evils
brought on by overwork is banished; the nervous and debili-
tated are built up; health and vigor and the delights of a
new exidence await all who come within the influence of
the tonic air and abundant sunshine of this favored region.

But climate is but one of the fa<5tor$albeit a moSt import-
ant onewhich have contributed to the growth of our Pikes
Peak city; it is fitly matched and supplemented by wonders of
natural scenery for which no counterparts can be found in any
other like area on the globe. For here, in full view, is the Pikes
Peak range, notching the western sky in splendid serrations for
thirty miles from north to south, dominated midway by the Peak
itself, which rears his snowy creSt 14,147 feet above the sea. But
superb as is this view of the mountains, a further revelation of
wonder and delight awaits all who seek their closer acquaintance.
For, in all their length, from Cheyenne Mountain on the south
to Monument Park on the northa distance of fully ten
milesthey hold a wealth and variety of wonder and charm
unmatched, it is safe to say, within any other like area on the globe. For they are riven by profound canons
and gorges; wonderful monoliths, many colored, Stand sentinel at their base; medicinal springs with healing
virtues bubble up amid their foothills. In the exad center of this wonderland is Colorado Springs; from it
the finest of natural roads, and in many cases branches of the eledric railway, radiate like the spokes of a
wheel to each of the several places of greatest interest. To attempt any description of these great scenic
features, the fame of many of which has become worldwide, would unduly exceed the limits of this
paper; and, indeed, without adequate illustration, any such attempt would be wellnigh futile. It muSt
suffice to say that they have commanded the admiring wonder of hundreds of thousands of
visitors from every part of the world. A Who has not heard of the Garden of

his majeStic Stature.
Pikes Peak is Colorados moSt famous landmark and remains one of Colorado Springs* chiefeSt
attradions. To reach its summit is the ambition of a great majority of visitors to the region; and in these
latter days they may make choice among several ways of compassing the ascent. If
lungs and legs are good, they can walk, following one of the several
trailsnine miles of persistent climbing, growing Steeper as the summit
is neared, and the ascent becoming more arduous because of die
rarefied air. Or they can take burro, pony or horse and gain
die summit with comparative ease. But the great majority
prefer the more expeditious Cog Railway, the completion of
which, in 1891, marked the supreme achievement in mans
conquest of the Great Mountain. Every one has heard of the
signal Station on Pikes Peak. All may not know, however,
that the ungainly Stone house is the highest habitation on the

inches. Out of the sunshine, there are few days the year round when water
does not freeze. The summit of the Peak is a comparatively level boulder
field of about thirteen acres in extent. Of the royal views to be gained from
that bleak summit, no pen can adequately tell. Westward is a Stupendous
mountain wilderness, eastward a limitless sea of plain. From the Spanish
Peaks and Sierra Blanca on the south, away to Longs Peak and beyond to
northwarda distance of three hundred milesStretches an unbroken snowy
range banked againSt the western sky. The splendid outline of the Sangre
de CriSto range, the great peaks near Leadville, and the snowy train that
sweeps from Grays to Longsall lying in blue haze or notching the sky
with a vividness and distinctness unknown except in these lofty regionsform
conspicuous parts of the matchless panorama. At the Peaks eastern base
lies the rock-Strewn region in the midst of which gleam the red minarets of
the Garden of the Gods; Colorado Springs, twelve miles distant, is a mere
checkerboard. Away to eastward is the limitless, ever-alluring vista of the Great Plains. Pines crown the
nearer summits, and aspens like autumn fires burn upon their slopes; lakes gleam far below; the exal-
tation of spirit that comes with supreme height gives to the whole Stupendous scene a charm that muSt be
experienced to be understood.

In the preceding pages we have attempted to give some idea of the city in which the International
Typographical Union is to hold its convention of 1906, and of the attractions of the region in which it is
situated. That the members of the Union feel a peculiar interest in the city of their Home cannot be
doubted; and it is the sincere wish of Colorado Springs that the coming convention to be held within its
gates may be one of marked success and happiest memories.

A Few Impressions
Henry Russell Wray
T WAS my privilege and pleasure to attend the Fifty-fird Annual Convention of the
International Typographical Union, held at Toronto, in August of lad year. It was a
privilege because it proved to be a liberal education, and a pleasure owing to the fad
that I was enabled to cultivate new and valued acquaintancesresulting, in some cases,
in friendships I am proud to possess.
Covering a period of years, I had, as a newspaper man, to come in daily contad
with the men who went to make up the important organization now so widely known and
respededThe International Typographical Union. Never during this period had other
than perfed harmony exided in a purely business relation. Through personal contad with
the individual, I learned absolutely to resped the Union he proudly
helped to maintain, and whose reputation and precedents he so
jealously guarded.
The principles for which a man dands are almod invariably
reflected in his personal charader. So, with this influence affeding me, I journeyed to
Toronto prepared to liden to the proceedings of a convention whose principles of Union-
ism were representative of the highed, and withal progressively conservative in pradical

The Growing Popularity of I. T. U. Conventions
1 ONVENTIONS have always been popular with the rank and file of
the International Typographical Union. To be selected as a delegate
to an International convention has ever been regarded as the highest prize
in the gift of the local membership, and, as a rule, there is no dearth of
candidates for this much-coveted honor. Many memorable contents
have resulted from the rivalry of delegatorial candidates, the successful
aspirant on many occasions having little to boaSt of in the way of a
majority, while a tie vote frequently occurs, thus necessitating a second
ballot. From time immemorial an effort has also been made by many
members to attend the meetings of the International body as visitors,
some of the older unionists having an almost unbroken record in this
I respect. The convention habit, once acquired, seems to grow Stronger
year by year, and this is not surprising when it is remembered that those
directly concerned interpose no check to its progress, but, on the contrary,
____________________________ encourage its growth, and ofttimes lament their inability to be present
when the gavel sounds. That conventions of the International Typo-
graphical Union have attractions that cannot be found elsewhere will be freely admitted by all who have been
fortunate enough to attend one of the meetings, either as a delegate or visitor. It has been customary for a num-
ber of our members to spend their yearly vacations in this way, and the increasing attendance of the gentler
sex in recent years demonstrates that conventions are growing in popularity with the wives, daughters and
sweethearts of the members.
While Statistical matter is usually considered rather dry reading, the writer believes that a review of
the attendance at conventions since 1890 may prove of interest at this time. In many cases, it has been found
impossible to give the aggregate attendance, as no record appears to have been kept, but the figures relative to
delegates and membership are gathered from the records of the International Union.
At Atlanta, Ga., in 1890, the vote for president indicated that there were 139 delegates in attend-
ance. The secretary-treasurers report gave the total membership as 24,194, including pressmen, binders,
Stereotypers and electrotypers.
At BoSton, Mass., in 1891, there were 166 delegates in attendance, according to the vote for president.
Total membership, 25,165, including pressmen, binders, Stereotypers and eledtrotypers.
At Philadelphia, Pa., in 1892, 170 delegates voted for president. Membership, 28,187, including
pressmen, binders, etc.
At Chicago, 111., in 1893, the vote for president showed the presence of 212 delegates. This being the
Worlds Fair year, a large number of visitors were in attendance. The membership at this time was 30,454,
including pressmen, binders, etc.
At Louisville, Ky., in 1894, 137 delegates voted for presi-
dent. The membership was 31,379, including pressmen, binders,
etc. By ac5t of this convention, subsequently indorsed by the
referendum, biennial rather than annual conventions were provided
for. Quite a number of visitors attended this session, including a
sprinkling of ladies.
At Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1896, 117 delegates
responded to the roll-call, and the attendance of ex-delegates and
visitors approximated 200. The membership had been reduced
to 28,838, by the surrender of jurisdiction over the pressmen and
binders. At this meeting, Stated conventions were abolished, this One of the Native

legislation being indorsed by the membership, but early in 1898, annual con-
ventions were again inaugurated by referendum vote.
At Syracuse, N. Y.( in 1898, credentials were presented by 149
delegates. Membership, 28,614, with the teeotypers and eledtrotypers
and photo-engravers. About 350 visitors attended this session, including
a number of ladies. The month of meeting was changed at this session
from October to August.
In 1899, at Detroit, Mich., 182 delegates answered roll-call, and
the attendance of ex-delegates and other visitors approximated 600, the
number of ladies showing an increase. The membership was 30,646,
including £ereotypers and eledtrotypers and photo-engravers.
In 1900, at Milwaukee, Wis., 180 delegates were present, but the
number of ex-delegates and visitors in attendance was largely increased, about
500 arriving on one excursion from Chicago. It is estimated that the number
of delegates, ex-delegates and visitors approximated 1,000. The membership
was 32,105, including ftereotypers and eledtrotypers and photo-engravers.
In 190), at Birmingham, Ala., 167 delegates responded to roll-call, and the total attendance approxi-
mated 650. Membership, 34,948, including Stereotypes and eledtrotypers.

In dealing with this phase of the subjedt assigned the writer, many things muSt be considered.
Reference to the Statistical matter herewith presented will demonstrate that the attendance of delegates has
always been as large as could reasonably be expedted, when it is borne in mind that the locals muSt pay die
expenses of their representatives, and that a large number of the small unions fail to send delegates because
of their inability to bear the financial burden that would be imposed by so doing. Conventions are just
as popular with local unions thus situated as with the larger unions,
and it is regrettable that some equitable plan cannot be devised
that would insure representation from every local in the jurisdidtion.
If the popularity of conventions is to be measured solely by
the attendance, it would necessarily follow that our meetings have
been growing in popularity during the pa£t decade, and notably
so during the pa$t few years. But it muil be remembered that
the conventions of 1899, 1900, 1902, 1903, 1904 and 1905
were held in territory contiguous to a goodly proportion of the
membership, and mainly in the jurisdidtions of large locals. So
the popularity of conventions, if judged solely by the attendance,

The Washington Bunch at St. Louis
would seem to depend, to a large degree, upon the contents of
the local union purse, and that of the individual visitor. It is not
beyond the realm of possibility that previous conventions were
juft as popular with the membership as those above noted, but
financial reasons prevented a large number from demonftrating
that popularity by their attendance.
The season of the year when the convention is held
should also be taken into consideration, if popularity is to
be judged solely by the attendance. Prior to 1894, the
International meetings were, as a rule, held in June. It was
finally concluded that the weather was too hot in June to hold a
convention, so the sessions of 1894, 1896 and 1898 were held
in Octoberthe other extreme. It was found to be pretty cold
in Syracuse, N. Y., in October, so a change was made to Auguft.
It is said that some of those who urged Odober meetings desired
to curtail the entertainment features, but the entertainment was provided juft the same, if not so heartily
enjoyed as it would have been in warmer weather. There is little doubt, however, that the weather in
October had a depressing effect upon the visitors, and tended to reduce the attendance.
The increasing attendance of the ladies in recent years, and the formation of the Auxiliary, prove con-
clusively that conventions are more popular with the fairer sex than formerly. Even before the Auxiliary was
organized, the attendance of ladies showed a decided increase, and it is safe to predid there will be no diminu-
tion in this resped at the Colorado Springs session.
fin the opening sentences of this article, it was asserted that
ajk conventions have always been popular with the rank and file, and
annual conventions at that. This is proven by the fad that, while
some large International bodies have dispensed with ftated conven-
tions, the membership of the International Typographical Union has
insifted upon holding them annually. As noted elsewhere, biennial
conventions were at one time decided upon, and ftated conventions
were abolished ten years ago, by the convention held in Colorado
Springs. But the membership, by a decisive vote, again declared for
annual conventions in 1898, and since that time no concerted effort
has been made to abolish diem.
The writer is aware that there is some opposition to ftated meet-
ings, it being asserted that conventions are junketing trips,* a
waste of money, never accomplish anything, etc. Such assertions
will not be dealt with at this time, further than to say that conventions,
being composed of human beings, muft necessarily have their good,
as well as their bad features. And the good features of a convention largely outweigh the bad. Conventions
may make miftakes, but the delegates are hardly as likely to err as an uninformed refer-
endum. Even the moft enthusiaftic advocate of the latter method of transading
business is forced to admit that it is exceedingly difficult to present amend-
ments of law in such a manner as to insure intelligent consideration. In
later years the measures that have been referred to the membership by
conventions have, as a rule, been adopted, and it is safe to say that some
of those which met with defeat would have received favorable con-
sideration at the hands of the referendum if the fads in the premises had
been more generally underftood.
Conventions also afford a means of intercourse between members
that cannot be had in any other manner. Moft people will concede that a
better underftanding of a given subjed can be arrived at through personal
communication than by means of written or printed matter. Delegates who

arrive at conventions with the convidtion that certain laws are wrong and should be amended, are often con-
vinced, by conversation or debate, that their views are erroneous, and it is not unusual for them to acknowledge
this by supporting an unfavorable report, or withdrawing a proposition. The interchange of views between
the delegates and visitors from different sections, the hearing of the debate and participation therein, and the com-
mittee work, all tend to broaden and enlighten those in attendance, to make
better union men and women, and

Conventions have always been popular, and seem likely to become more popular. The bulk of the
membership of the International Typographical Union would undoubtedly attend our annual gatherings, if
circumstances and finances permitted.

The Cummings Memorial
HE chief purpose of this article is to call the attention of the
delegates and visitors to the Colorado Springs convention of
the International Typographical Union to the work of the
Cummings Memorial Committee. A report in detail will
be made to the convention. The exigencies of the eight-hour
struggle have prevented the collection of the necessary funds
for a memorial to a union printer, to be eretfed by union
printers.* It is the earnest desire of the committee to com-
plete its work as soon as possible, and an appeal is made to
the generosity of those unions that have not yet contributed.
Fifty cents from each member is all that is asked.
Amos J. Cummings, printer, soldier, journalist and
Statesman, was born in Conkling, N. Y., in 1841. At the age of 12 years he went to work at the printers
case, and he often said that he had set type in nearly every State of the Union. While Still a boy, he went
with Walker in his laSt invasion of Nicaragua. On the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted as a pri-
vate and received the Congressional medal of honor for bravery on the field of battle. He resumed
work at the case in the New York Tribune office towards the close of the war, and soon graduated to the
reportorial and editorial departments. He was elected to Congress in 1886 and served almost continu-
ously until his death in 1902.
Mr. Cummings soon became one of the leaders of the House of Representatives, and he truly merited
that sometimes abused title of Statesman. To his splendid work on the naval committee is due in no
small degree the preparedness of the navy in our laSt war. Thoroughness and breadth of view characterized
all his work in Congress.
He was always a man of the people. He Stood for the rights of the masses of the people againSt the
classes who sought special privileges. The interests of the common sailors, the soldiers, the letter carriers,
and other humble employes of our government were his especial care, and he was ever ready to champion their
cause with voice and pen.
His work on the Committee of Labor was always nearest his heart. In an address during the memorial
services in the House of Representatives, one of Mr. Cummings* associates said:
It is probable that he was prouder of what he was able to accomplish in his fifteen years of service in
the cause of organized labor than he was of any of the many useful a<5ts in his useful life. Always a mem-
ber of Typographical Union No. 6, the interests of organized labor were his especial care and pleasure. In
his death, labor loSt one of its beSt and wisest friends.
The foregoing is a brief and inadequate record of the life and work of
one of the moSt illustrious members of our craft,a man whose career
is an inspiration and a hope to those who are Struggling to better the
condition of the masses of mankind as well as their own.
From the day he joined until the day of his death, he was
an atfive member of Typographical Union No. 6. On the floor
of the House of Representatives, at employers banquets, and
in social gatherings, he told with pride of his membership in
our union.
At the Cincinnati convention of the International Typo-
graphical Union in 1902, a few months after Mr. Cummings

subordinate union seledt a committee to interest the members in the undertaking and to assist in raising the
necessary funds by voluntary contributions.
The committee also reported that it had considered the advisability of erecting a memorial library at
the Home, but the members were doubtful if the necessary funds could be raised by voluntary contribu-
tions. The report showed that contributions to the memorial fund amounting to $2,866.1 1 had been made
during the year by local unions.
The Committee on Union Printers* Home indorsed the recommendations of the Cummings Memorial
Committee, and recommended further, that if within a period of one year a sum sufficient to build a library
is received, the committee shall abandon the monument proposition and proceed to the erection of a library.
The report of the committee was adopted.
The attention of the convention was also called to the views of Home Trustee McCaffery as to the desir-
ability of extending the north wing of the main building of the Home about fifty feet, thereby providing more
library room and increasing the accommodations of the Home, and doing the moil good to the greatest num-
ber. The personal library of Mr. Cummings, which had been offered as a gift to the Home by Mrs.
Cummings, could be housed therein and the library room dedicated to the perpetuation of his memory.
In January, 1904, Denver Typographical Union, No. 49, by unanimous vote, adopted a resolution that
on the anniversary of the birthday of our late brother, Hon. Amos J. Cummings, Sunday, May 15, 1904,
each member of the Denver Union contribute the sum of fifty cents for the purpose of erecting an addition to
the Union Printers Home at Colorado Springs, to be known as the Cummings Library addition. A com-
mittee was appointed to communicate this action to every subordinate union in the jurisdiction of the Inter-
national Typographical Union, and to urge that similar action be taken by the several unions.
The report of the Cummings Memorial Committee to the St. Louis convention in August, I 904, showed
that the contributions to the fund amounted to $7,003.54. The report also Sated that

those representing unions which had not yet
contributed, pledged themselves to bring the matter to the attention of their unions as soon as they returned
home. The selection of Colorado Springs as the meeting place of the next convention, it was hoped, would
have a quickening effect on the laggard unions, and the laying of the cornerstone at IeaSt was looked forward
to as a feature of convention week.
The inauguration of the fight for the eight-hour day, however, brought the work of the Memorial
Committee to a halt. We felt that the energies and the money of our members should be given to the suc-
cessful prosecution of the eight-hour fight. No contributions have been asked for since IaSt August, yet the
fund has been increased to nearly $13,000 by sums sent from various unions.
In an article intended for printers, it is not necessary to say much about the Union Printers Home.
The general public also is pretty well informed now. Copies of the Inland Printer article on the Home, previ-
ously referred to, were sent by President Lynch to the leading newspapers, colleges,

read, smoke, converse with each other, and amuse themselves with cards, dominoes, etc., is only 35 by 40
feet in size. With an ever-increasing number of inmates, this room is generally overcrowded during the fall
and winter months, when the days and evenings are too cold for comfortable existence out of doors, and it is
wholly inadequate for the giving of entertainments for the amusement of the resi-
dents of the institution. By extending the northeast wing of the main building
sixty-five feet, as contemplated, this room would be increased in size to 40 by
100 feet, which would provide ample space for assembly hall, reading-room and
library. This hall could then be divided by rolling partitions, with movable
frames, giving a library-room 36
by 50 feet in the clear, and ar-
ranged for bookcases on two sides.
The partitions being movable, the
entire space could be converted into
one large hall, where ledures,
musicales and other forms of light
entertainment might be frequently
given, thus letting in many hours of
sunshine upon the lives of the older
and more feeble inmates who are
unable to seek recreation in other
ways, and upon whom the relentless hand of Time presses heavily. C]J The advantage of having the
library, reading-room and assembly-hall in the main building mud be apparent to all, especially when it is
remembered that many of the inmates are very old and feeble, and would, therefore, be totally unable to
visit the library if it were located outside, and that it would be practically useless on dormy days and after
Besides the benefits enumerated above, the erection of this addition would furnish accommodations
for forty-eight more residents upon the second and third floors, thereby increasing the capacity of the main
building nearly one-third. Sixteen sleeping-rooms, 1 3 by 15 feet in size, would be provided on these two
floors, capable of accommodating three occupants in each room. In the basement, which has a 10-foot ceil-
ing, we would secure an extension to the dining room of 23 by 36 feet, with a corresponding increase in
the size of the kitchen, serving-room and servants dining-room, besides providing Storage room for gen-
eral supplies, a refrigerator room, bakery, flour Storage and coal bins.
In design, material and number of floors, the proposed wing will conform with the present building.
Porches will be built along the entire south and ea£t sides on the fir$t floor, with south and ea£t entrances.
To those who are familiar with the Home and its needs, the early completion of this enterprise is
earnestly hoped for, fully realizing that it means the greatest improvement that the institution has experienced
since its inception.
If every member of the International would contribute 50 cents toward this commendable project, the
memorial would be erected without delay, the capacity of the Home would be greatly increased, and
the memory of Amos J. Cummings perpetuated in a manner that would be an honor to his name, and
refledt credit upon an institution which Stands as a living monument to the wisdom and generosity of the union
printers of North America.
Such a monument, dedicated to such useful purposes, is the nobleSt one that could be devised to
commemorate the memory of a man like Amos J. Cummings. He was great of heart as well as great of
mind. He loved mankind, he loved books, he loved nature. His life was devoted to the work of increasing
the sum of human happiness and lessening, so far as lies within mortal power, the cares and privations of the
poor and the unfortunate. He has fallen to rise no more, but his spirit itill lives and is a beacon light to
those who are fighting for the cause of humanity.
A laft word to the unions and members who have not yet contributed to the fund: Let us be a unit
in this matter, and complete the Memorial.

The Womans International Auxiliary
HE Womans International Auxiliary to the International Typographical
Union was organized at Cincinnati, Ohio, at the Golden Jubilee Conven-
tion of the International Typographical Union, August 13, 1902.
Its growth, while not phenomenal, has been Steady and sure.'
At this time, June 1, 1906, we have affiliated with the Inter-
national organization forty auxiliaries, in good Standing, with a total
membership of 1,031.
While this membership may seem small for an auxiliary to an
organization with a membership of some 43,000, to those who have worked
faithfully and hard since its inception, and are familiar with the obstacles
we have had to overcome, the results obtained are very
When one Stops to consider that the organization has
no inducement whatever to offer to secure members, other
than the probable social features, and that the only returns we can hope
for are indirectly through the good we may accomplish in helping to
better the working conditions of the male members of our families, the
lack of members in our organization is not to be wondered at.
Probabjy not all, but a great many of us receive from our hus-
bands the money each week to pay the running expenses of the home,
and never take into consideration that the amount is larger simply
because he belongs to the Typographical Union and has his wage fixed for him.
How many women are there in our organization today who are acquainted with or have friends whose
husbands are in the same line of business, and who, desiring to be free and independent, not caring to
be hampered by the dictations and oppressions of the union, are receiving from five to seven dollars less
on the week than the printer who is a Typographical Union member?
The great trouble with the wives of the laboring men of today is that they, as a rule, know nothing
about their husbands' business, and, perhaps, do not care anything about it.
This, in a very large measure, is the fault of the husband. How much better it would be if he would
take his wife into his confidence. How much better could she estimate the amount she could spend each
week and make the ends meet. The confidence in this respect that should exiit between man and wife is
so often withheld that the wife very frequently, to use a homely expression, is going it blind; hence the
accusation that we women are extravagant. This, to my way of thinking, is the strongest reason why every

Another worthy cause in which the International Auxiliary as a whole has been deeply interested, is the
suppression of child labor in the city factories. The subterfuges, lies and misrepresentations which are resorted
to by some manufacturers to evade the child-labor laws which exist in some of our States deserve the con-
demnation of all fair-minded people. One does not have to go into the Southern cotton mills to see the
deplorable evils of child labor. We have it everywhere right under our very eyes, and the partial reform
that has already been accomplished is due solely to the efforts of organized labor. Just why a mother
with the heart of a human can see her children of tender age pale, shrivel and dwarf, from long hours of
toil in insanitary shops, for a mere pittance, is beyond my comprehension. Are these boys and girls to be the
parents of the toilers of the future?
There are so many ways that the female contingent of the working mans family can be of assistance that
the need of an Auxiliary to every labor organization does not seem debatable. I have always contended that
a union mans family takes more interest in the advancement of his individual welfare and union- than that
of another. We do not mean by this to depreciate the good being done by the Label League; but our
observation has been that its membership is composed of representatives from a comparative few, while if
every organization had its own individual Auxiliary, the army of women with their purchasing power that
could be lined up in the interest of label-bearing goods would settle that all-absorbing question in a very short time.
