In which case a result of such increase would be to compel them to suspend publication, thereby lessening the business of the post office, and at. the same time would be the means of throwing thousands of men out of employment, as well as depriving the public of much useful reading matter. We therefore hope that you will not only vote against this bill when it comes up for consideration, but that you will use your influence to bring about Its defeat."

C. F. U. Urges Curtis as State Commissioner of Labor. A committee from the Manhattan Central Federated Union, composed of James P.

Holland, Edward Hanna and Harry De Veaux, have waited upon Governor Dix, and Informed hlin that Thomas J. Curtis Is the Indorsed candidate of organized labor of New York City for the office of state labor commissioner. The fact that Commissioner Williams' term of office does Jot expire for another year appeared to have no weight with the committee. Mr. De Veaux, while with the Governor, gave him a copy of Vssembly Bill No.

327. amending the employment agencies law, and told him that, the White Rats Actors Union, with members. Is absolutely opposed to the bfll. In this stand the White Rats are backed by all organized labor of the City and State of New York. The Fight of the Unions in Los Angeles.

The report, recently printed, of the General Campaign Strike Committee having under Its Jurisdiction the dispute of the various unions nt Los Angeles, In California, Bhows (he receipts and disbursements of the committee for tho ist six months. The amount received wos $142,893, but this does not Include the sum paid by International unions dlrwtly to local members, nor does It take into account the amount spent or? the brewery workers strike. Other sums received Include from the molders, from the bollermnkers, from the patternmakers, $1187.95 from the blacksmiths, $4,167.35 from the machinists, nnd $9,030.36 from miscellaneous union sources, making the total amount received $159,781.89. The expenses for the six-months period totaled $158,055.78, leaving a balance of $1,126.11. For Ihe week ended February 14 there was received $6,908.95 and $4,723.80 paid out.

A well-known member of Big Six is thus referred to by the Los Angeles Citizen: "George Stein, special representative of the International Typographical Union, has arrived In town, and will take charge of the field heretofore covered by Organizer McLernon, who resigned a few months ago to join the editorial staff of the Examiner. Mr. Stein conies from New York, where he is ulgniy Gompers Advocates Labor Party in the past four years, will take up the work ou the Pacific coast. During Mr. Wilson's work in the New England territory members have been added to the unions of the district and 40,000 members have benefited by increased wages and better conditions.

Machinists Ball a Boost for the Eight-Hour Day, The ball given on Tuesday night by Dis. trlct No. 15, International Association of Machinists, at the Manhattan New Star Casino, was a distinct boost for tho'eigbt-hour day that tho machinists want, to leach during next month. There were persons attending the function, nnd leaflets containing the following resolution, adopted at the January 29 meeting, were passed out to the members: "Whereas. Thousands of machinists, ap-ptcntlces, building, printing and metal tradesmen, with other workmen In Greater New York and vicinity, are now, nnd have been for some time pnst, working the eight-hour day or forty-eight hour week, and In certain Industries are In the same competitive market with other employers In this locality, whero longer hours exist; and "Whereas, There are several hundred automobile garages, general Jobbing, repair and marine shops located within this Jurisdiction, whero the general sentiment Speech to Indiana Legislature.

In a speech before the members of the Indiana Legislature at Indianapolis on Monday, Samuel Gompers. president of the American Federation of Labor, 13 quoted as saying In part: "A constructive, progressive, radical labor party must soon enter the field of politics against the Republican and the Democratic parties. The Republican par socialist party ana the omen Trade Union League. The object of the conference is to indorse, support and agitate for any labor bill which any of the bodies represented proposes, and also to originate bills which the conference decides necessary for the interest and protection of labor. The conference also hopes to become a political force by closely watching the attitude of legislators on all labor questions and actively working for the defeat of any member who opposes or fails to support all reasonable labor meastiers.

It plans to carry on an educational campaign to familiarize the workers with their power to introduce legislation for their own benefit and to make them realize the present devious methods of the administration of the law. It has Just been learned that the canneries of Central New York are making an effort to defeat the 54-hour bill, as they have repeatedly year after year. It Is alleged, attempted to work the women and children limitless hours on the pretext that they are not able to get as much labor as they want, and that the season Is short. As a matter of fact, it Is claimed, their working force is not composed of people from the adjoining farms, but great colonies of foreign laborers, drawn from the surrounding cities, so that the number of working people could be largely increased from this source. Unions can show their sentiment for the bill, says the Publicity Committee of the Women's Trade Union League, by authorizing their secretaries to send a letter to Assemblyman Wende, chairman of the Committee on Labor and Industry, at Albany, asking him to report the bill out of committee.

"Moot Case," Declares Supreme Court in A. F. of Co. Suit. The civil suit Involving the boycotting warfare between the Buck Stove and Range Company, of St.

Louis, and the American Federation of Labor, was dismissed by the Supreme Court of the United States last Monday afternoon, on the ground that the issue had boon Bet-tied out of court, and It had now become a "moot case." That is to say, a fictitious or disputable question. The decision, however, had nothing to do with the criminal cases in which Samuel Gompers, John Mitchell and Frank Morrison, of the American Federation of Labor, are charged with contempt. The settlement between the company and the unions was made several months ago when the Buck company decided to unionize Its plant. Labor Active Against Increased Magazine Postage Hates. At the last meeting of the Brooklyn Central Labor Union, Delegate Quinn, of Web Pressmen No.

25. seconded by the delegate from Big Six, brought up the question of the proposed Increase in postage on magazines from one cent to four cents per pound, and both delegates endeavored to show the ill-effects such Increase would have on the book printing Industry how it would possibly drive the cheaper magazines out of business and carry with them an Industrial depression that would not only affect the allied printing crafts, but the electricians, machinists, engineers, firemen, equally with the former. The question took the form of a resolution to request members of Congress to resist the Increase and was unanimously carried. Under the dustry at Albany In reference to the law limiting the working week of women to 64 hours the other day. Labor was represented by Mr.

Ooldln, president of the Textile Work-era Union; Mr. Miles, organizer of the Textile Workers; the Rev. Dr. Roland, formerly a locomotive engineer; Miss Ida Rauh represented the Women's Trade Union League; Miss Gall, the Textile Worker; Miss Scott, the Hat Trimmers; MIbs Schneiderman, the White Goods Workers; MiBB O'Reilly, the Shirt Makers; Mr. Tomlin, the Brooklyn Central Labor Union, and Mr.

Hannah, the Manhattan Central Federated Union. Twelve representatives of the employers present opposed the bill, with one exception. The latter said he was running his factory on a 65-hour work week, and If he could not do It by complying with the 64-hour law it was time for him to shut down his factory. At present the law In New York limits the work of women to 60 hours a week, that Is, a ten-hour day, with the privilege of overtime on any day if the week's 'work as a whole does not exceed 60 hours. Tha 64-hour bill now before the committee was introduced by Assemblyman JacVtson, and provides for a week of 64 hpurs for women.

The law in regard yo the work of women in some other states Is as follows: Massachusetts and Rhode Island have a 66-hour week. Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine have a 68-hour week. Colorado and Wisconsin lead with a week of 48 hours. Bills are to be presented In Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Michigan for a 64-hour week, and an 8-hour bill Is before the Legislatures of California and Montana. The proposition laid before the committee by the employers was that a 64-hour law would place manufacturers in New York State at a disadvantage in competing with other states; and if the measure went into effect would necessitate them moving their factories Into states where the law gave less protection to women workers.

They also claimed that the women did not want a reduction of hours. They spoke of themselves aB representatives of many millions of dollars. The organized workers spoke for the 84-hour bill as a protection for the unorganized women workers, and claimed that if some unorganized women were not able to see the necessity for a shorter work day for themselves and the community the law must protect them to some extent. They also showed that a shorter day did not decrease production, as the increased vitality and physical condition of the worker enabled her to produce more than in the longer day. This bill will have the support of a new body called the Joint Labor Legislative Conference.

The middle class, the business man and the humble tollers, are willing 10 come Into their own, but we believe in evolution, not revolution." Two Important Labor Bills Now in Committees of Assembly. Assembly bill No.

463, to create a state printing office, Is one of the important labor measures now under consideration at Albany. The bill abolishes the state printing board and establishes the office of superintendent of state printing. Afier the expiration of all contracts in force when the act takes effect, all printing done at the expense of the state Is to be under the supervision of the superintendent of state printing. The superintendent Is to be appointed by the Governor by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, within ninety days after the passage of the act, for a term of five years, at an annual salary of $5.10. Provision Is made for a complete printing plant to be owned by the state.

The bill originated with the State Allied Printing Trades Council. Another bill (Assembly bill No. 471) of equal Importance provides that employment agencies of all kinds must bo FUNERAL OF MRS. WARDELL. Funeral services were held at the Calvary Baptist Church.

The church was filled with the mourning friends of Ihe deceased musician, and the many members of the choir of the church were In attendance. Two favorite hymns ot Mrs. Wardill's were sung by a quartet from the Apollo Musical Society, as tha chorus choir dare not trust itself, being too much overcome by emotion. The Rev.
