WOMAN'S INTERNATIONAL AUXILIARY. President--Mrs. Charles Hertenstein, 3813 St.

Louis avenue, St. Louis, Mo. Secretary-Mrs. Frank W. Long, 4926 Ash street,

Norwood, Cincinnati, Ohio.

DENVER, COLO. We had a very enjoyable basket picnic at Lakeside, on July 20, which netted a neat little sum. The proceeds were used to help pay the expenses of our delegate, Mrs. Koester, to the St. Joe convention.

Mrs. Nellie C. Smith, our former faithful sec. retary, has gone to California for a few months' visit.

Our president, Mrs. Anna M. Lee, has the sympathy of the members in the death of her husband, which occurred June 15.

Mr. Lee was employed in the News proofroom, and had been ailing for some time.

Mrs. J. E. McDonald, of the Pueblo Auxiliary, was a visitor at a recent auxiliary meeting.

A farewell surprise party was given in honor of Mrs. Fredericke by No. 54 during the month in Fern Hall, and a nice time was had by all who attended. Mr. and Mrs. Fredericke have since gone to St. Louis to make their future home, and have the best wishes of a host of friends.

MRS. GEORGE KIRCHNER.

International Typographical Union. Many other amendments of lesser importance than the forego. ing were passed by the convention, to be voted upon by the membership. These will be mailed to all secretaries in ample time to permit of discus. sion of the same before the vote is taken.

We are indebted to the St. Joseph arrangements committee for the many kindnesses shown and the entertainment furnished; to the St. Joseph ladies, who worked like Trojans to make us comfortable, and to the ladies of the Press Club and the citizens generally, all of whom gave us a Missouri welcome.

A proposition to strike from the book of laws of the International Typographical Union a resolution encoura the formation of auxiliaries was reported unfavorably by the committee on laws, and the report of the committee was concurred in.

St. Louis, Mo. MRS. CHARLES HERTENSTEIN.

SEATTLE, WASH. Finding it impossible to hold meetings and entertain the large number of relatives and friends visiting the A.-Y.-P. exposition, Auxiliary No. 23 concluded to declare the month of July a vacation. The salutary effect of such recreation was manifest at our first meeting in August by all members rallying “manfully” to duty's call, electing the following officers: President, Mrs. O. K. Sander; vice-president, Mrs. Charles Segbers; secretary, Mrs. J. O. Burdick; treasurer, Mrs. J. Q. Gilmore; guide, Mrs. Roland Layton; executive committee, Mesdames Gallagher, Moar and Kidd.

No. 202 held a basket picnic at Ravena Park, August 15, with many members of No. 23 assist. ing in the gastronomic exercises.

Next month we will hold our regular autumn outing.

MRS. R. LAYTON.

THE PRESIDENT'S LETTER. Our seventh annual convention was a most successful one in every way.

While some of the familiar faces were conspicuous by their absence at St. Joseph, their interest in the proceedings is noted in the receipt of letters from them to the convention wishing the auxiliary continued success.

The report of the president and secretary showed seven new auxiliaries (with a membership of 176) added to the list in the past year. The treasury also shows a healthy increase.

The report of the delegates to the convention, as given at Thursday's session, shows an active in. terest in the work of the organization. These reports indicate that active and aggressive label work is being done. When the proceedings of the convention are printed I would earnestly recommend the reading of this day's proceedings to those who have their doubts about the work of the auxiliary.

One of the important laws passed was the amendment to the membership clause by which the women members of the families of all members of the International Typographical Union are eligible to membership. Heretofore membership was limited to the women of the families of members of the typographical union. The adoption of this clause by the referendum will make eligible the wives of members of all subordinate locals of the

ST. LOUIS, MO. Among the prominent auxiliary workers attend. ing the convention who stopped over in St. Louis were: Mrs. J. D. Kane, International first vicepresident; Mrs. C. E. McKee, ex-International secretary-treasurer; Mrs. J. P. Cherry, delegate from Indianapolis; Mrs. L. Mechbach, delegate from Louisville, and Mrs. 0. S. McNabb, delegate from Terre Haute. Mrs. Louis Borgstede, a member of No.

is recovering from a very serious illness.

The entertainment provided for delegates and visitors at St. Joseph was a treat indeed. As soon as you stepped off the train you were made to feel as if you had fallen into the hands of friends, and when you departed you could have had no thought other than good wishes for St. Joseph's union and auxiliary; in fact, everybody from the mayor of the city down to the newsboys was in. tent on adding to your pleasure. Beginning with a reception Saturday night, a grand “get together"

Kansas City, too, kept "open house" at the Savoy Hotel for those passing through that city, and in addition to providing refreshments of all kinds, treated the visitors to a ride around the city.

The annual picnic to be given by No. 8 on Labor day will be held as usual at Normandy Grove, and it is promised to be bigger and better than

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS. Our regular business meeting was held August 5. The attendance was above the average, notwithstanding the hot weather. Two members were obligated and two applications for member. ship voted upon.

Auxiliary No. 61 will make its initial appearance in the Labor day parade this year, the ladies riding in carriages, preceding Typographical Union No. 172 in line of march. The printers seem to feel quite proud of the fact that their craft will be the only one with an auxiliary representation in the parade.

Our social meetings have been abandoned for the summer, as a large number of the printers and their families spend most of the heated term in the mountains or at the coast.

MRS. C. B. HARRIS.

To the wives, daughters and sisters of the members of Typographical Union No. 6, Woman's Auxiliary to No. 6, recently reorganized, desires to impress upon you the duty as well as the necessity of enlisting under its banner and doing your share in maintaining union principles. Each one of you is directly interested in your husband, father or brother receiving “a fair day's pay for a fair day's work," and it is your solemn duty to join with your sisters in furthering the cause of union. ism by insisting that the union label appear on every article of wearing apparel worn or loaf of bread consumed in your household. As "in union there is strength,” you can not hope to be of service by "going it alone,” but by connecting your. self with an organization composed of persons having one common purpose.

See that your husband, father or brother receives The TYPOGRAPHICAL JOURNAL every month

- he has to pay for it when he pays his union dues, and all he has to do to receive it regularly is to notify the secretary of the union where to address it--and familiarize yourself with its contents, and you will thereby learn what has been done and what is going to be done by the women in other parts of the United States.

There are many members of No. 6 who never see a copy of The TYPOGRAPHICAL JOURNAL unless by accident, when some member who has his mail addressed to his place of employment has tossed it aside, and there are many women whose husbands or brothers are earning good salaries as the result of their connection with the union, and who are kept in good situations because of that connec. tion alone.

No woman who has the welfare of unionism at heart conscientiously buy non-union-made goods, and it is the duty of every woman to whom these lines are addressed to become affiliated with the woman's auxiliary of No. 6, and to do her share to assist the officers in carrying out the great work in which we are engaged.

MRS. MARGARET A. DUFF.

NEW YORK, N. Y, We were all happy to be able to procure our charter before the convention, and Auxiliary No. 20 celebrated the event on August 12 at its regular meeting (which is held the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 8 P. M. at Women's Trade Union League House, 43 East Twenty-second street), having as our guests Mrs. Coffin and Miss Coffin, of New Orleans Union No. 17 and Auxiliary No. 9. Music was furnished by Miss A. E. Foster and cake and cream was served.

We have elected as officers for the coming year: Mrs. Julia Afflick, president; Mrs. A. H. Bentrup, vice-president; Mrs. W. H. Watson, secretary; Mrs. H. D. Soule, treasurer; Miss Mamie Hamer, sergeant-at-arms.

No. 6 is furnishing two autos for the Labor day parade, and Woman's Auxiliary No. 20 has its active members on the committee-Miss Mildred Potter, Miss Hamer, Mrs. W. J. Duff, Mrs. A. Cassidy and Mrs. S. E. Crimmins.

I wish to extend sincere thanks to Mrs. Hertenstein and Mrs. Long, of the Woman's International Auxiliary, who have helped us so much; also to Mrs. C. Bowen, of Washington Auxiliary No. 13. Both Mrs. Affick and I appreciate her great kindness to us.

DALLAS, TEXAS. Our auxiliary met with Mrs. Earl A. Harrison August 1o. Election of officers was in order, but we decided to retain for the ensuing term those who had served so faithfully since the birth of our auxiliary six months ago.

We decided to have a picnic and theater party at Lake Cliff, on August 25, for members and their families, our president appointing Mesdames H. M. Campbell, E. A. Harris, L. L. Daniel and M. C. Heaslip as an entertainment committee. It was also decided to follow the example of the typographical union and fine each member 25 cents for failure to attend the meetings, unless prevented by sickness or absence from town. A congratulatory telegram was sent to sister auxiliaries in session at St. Joe.

HARRY H. OURY. The following was adopted by Poplar Bluff Typographical Union No. 635: Departed this life July 15,

1909, Harry H. Oury, aged 38 years.

The deceased was

an old and honored member of the typographical union, a veteran workman at his chosen trade, and in his demise we recognize the loss of a true and tried member of our organization, who always “carried his card up to date;" a loyal friend and an upright and honorable citizen, who, although having in his career a full share of the trials and tribulations incident to the life of a printer, never shrank from duty nor deviated from the conscientious dis. charge of the same. It is hereby

Resolved, That the condolence of the membership of this union be extended to those who are left to mourn his loss.

riodicals of the past to the machine-made publications of the present, but practically every journey. man printer of today has taken part in the evolution. It was through the introduction of typeset. ting machinery that the opponents of the typo. graphical union hoped to accomplish its disorgani. zation and demoralization. But they overlooked the fact that the human mind is greater than any machine ever invented or constructed, and that the average "printer man" is the possessor of a men. tality broad in its scope and its problem-solving ability. Instead of the machines conquering the union printers, the union printers conquered the machines, and today the typographical union is stronger in its membership, property and cash reserve than ever before in its history. While the machine problem is not the only one the organization has had to overcome, it is perhaps the best example of the union's ability to weather any storms that may arise by the exercise of that intelligence which is the basis of its success. Its actions are not hasty or ill advised. It believes in deliberation and arbitration, and recognizes the fact always that there are two sides to every ques. tion. If it is possible to settle a dispute between employer an employed on logical or sense grounds, those are the methods that will be employed.

The union, too, is great in its beneficences, It maintains at Colorado Springs, Colo., a home for its indigent members, which is a model institution, and an inspiration for those who expect to devote their lives to the “art preservative of all arts.' In many other ways is the organization constantly increasing its usefulness to its own membership, contributing to the progress of the country and the promulgation of that policy which recognizes the "brotherhood of man. -St. Louis Star, August 11.

GEORGE W. DAY. The Chicago Daily News Benefit Association adopted the following resolutions on the death of George W. Day, which occurred 20, 1909:

Whereas, Providence, in its wisdom, has taken from us by death our fellow worker, George W. Day, a member of the Daily News chapel, Chicago Typographical Union, and of the Chicago Daily News Benefit Association;

Resolved, That we, the members of the Chicago Daily News Benefit Association, do hereby give expression to the sorrow occasioned by this loss, and to our deep sympathy with the family and relatives of our former associate;

Resolved, further, That this action be recorded in full in the minutes of our association, and that a copy of this resolution be transmitted to Mrs. George W. Day and also to TuE TYPOGRAPHICAL JOURNAL.

A MODEL OF UNIONISM. If all labor organizations were as businesslike in their methods, as progressive in their operation and as conservative in their deliberations and actions as the typographical union, the fifty-fifth International convention of which is now meeting at St. Joseph, Mo., there would be but little of the so-called “constant strife between capital and labor."

The typographical union as an organization is nearly sixty years old. Naturally, in that period, it has seen history made and has helped in the making. Its membership has contributed to every page of progress, every printed line that humanity holds immortal. The printing industry is civilization itself, its membership the makers and disseminators of it.

The typographical union, like every other or. ganization that has grown up with the country, has seen some troublous times. Its death knell has been sounded more than once, but before the echoes had died away the membership had pulled itself together and defeated the purposes of its de. tractors by methods of rejuvenation born of that common-sense and justice-loving policy which has made it today perhaps the most powerful organization of its kind in existence.

It is a far cry in progress from the handset pe

THE TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION. The International Typographical Union, now holding its fifty-fifth convention in St. Josephi, Mo., is 57 years old. As unions go, this is a venerable age, but the typographical union yearly becomes younger in strength, vitality and zeal. In modernity of thought it is foremost in all that makes for sound benefit to its living members and consistent provision for those who die. It has provided for superannuated brothers of its craft a million-dollar home, located in a climate as healthful and amid surroundings as glorious as nature yields to men.

But the success, the financial solidity, the dig. nity and the future stability of the typographical union are not so much the product of an impec. ca administration of its receipts and expenditures as they are the result of a firm and stanchly adhered to policy of living up to its engagements with its employers.

A contract with the typographical union is as good, better than a bond from most institutions. What it agrees to do it does. It cultivates amity with those with whom it holds business relations. Its wise counselors look upon a strike as a twoedged sword which slashes and maims both him who hires and him who is hired. Its watchwords for the settlement of labor disputes are conciliation, arbitration and give and take.

Few, indeed, in later years, have been typographical union difficulties which have not found settlement without resort to that ultimate measure which union men of less judicial balance have found-and made-so costly to all concerned.

May the old typographical union wax older in experience and younger in sentiment, a perennial bay tree whose roots take hold of the rocks in the depths and whose leaves always shall be green.St. Louis Times, August 10.
