and plenty of literature is at hand. A unique circular will be issued, under the auspices of Typographical Union No. 205, which is expected to be a credit to our local and interesting and bene. ficial to all who read it. Our committee suggested and drafted resolutions asking the supervisors of Chautauqua county to erect a suitable hospital for tuberculosis patients on Chautauqua Lake. That body, at its annual meeting in November, took kindly to the suggestion, and appointed a committee to meet with the committee representing our union and the associated charities, for the purpose of discussing the matter further. Great results are expected.

E. GEORGE LINDSTROM.

CHARLESTON, W. VA. John Dudley, one of our members, lost a little grandchild by being burned to death on October 30. One of his daughters, at whose home the little one was when the accident occurred, nearly lost both her hands in extinguishing the flames and attempting to save the child.

A minority of the stockholders of the Mail. News Company, state printers, are trying to have the receivership wound up, the plant sold and all creditors settled with. The date for hearing of the petition has not yet been announced. Several prominent legal firms are retained by these stockholders.

The state federation of labor met here in Octo. ber and transacted a lot of business. It will meet here again in 1911, during the session of the legislature, when it is expected to formulate some labor legislation and to get the same passed. F. W. Snyder, of the Goodrich-Snyder Company, was re-elected secretary.

The Kanawha Valley Trades Association was formed here a few weeks ago, and is said to start out with a goodly membership and bright prospects. The old Capital City Trades Assembly has been a “dead one" for a good while, and the new move. ment, being much more comprehensive, will doubt. less be able to cover a greatly increased field.

There is much more theatrical literature being printed here than in former years, and all of it is bearing the label.

Applications come in to us every once in a while for machine operators.

We have none to spare, and part of the time we could use one or two more than there are here.

There is a good deal of talk as to an extra session of the legislature next January, but it is just as assiduously denied. D. C. Lovett, JR.

GLENS FALLS, N. Y. The Post-Star Publishing Company has installed another linotype machine.

George H. Nash, who conducted a job office for a number of years on John street, Sandy Hill, has retired from business. Mr. Nash always carried a card with No. 96, and the members wish Mr. Nash the best of luck in any undertaking that he may enter.

Miss A. Corcoran, formerly with the Times, has accepted a position with the Post-Star.

The members of No. 96 express their sympathy to P. J. Inglee, who was summoned to Machias, Maine, on account of the death of his father.

JAMESTOWN, N. Y. No. 205 had a spirited and important meeting last month. The renewing of contracts with an increase in scale was finally ratified by the members. There was much discussion over one office, which insisted upon running on a ten-hour basis. An organizer was sent for and we expect no further trouble. All other employers were certainly fair in their dealings; for, as a matter of fact, our requests were moderate and fair. The executive committee, after it got busy, "did things,” and received the thanks and congratulations of all members.

Louis E. Ruden, president of the central labor council, was elected delegate to the American Federation of Labor. He remained ten days and says it was an intensely interesting session, especially so on account of the difficulty with the seceding electrical workers.

The secretary of No. 205's tuberculosis committee informs me he received notice from President Lynch that the International Typographical Union exhibit now at Boston would be shipped to him in time for our great state exhibit here, December 5. Slides of the Union Printers Home are ordered

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA. Lord Macaulay, one of Britain's greatest historians and statesmen--and naturally one of the greatest thinkers and observers of his age-says: "If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery, they may indeed wait forever.”

The members of the typographical union promised a visit by their president, James M. Lynch. The printers will make the occasion of his visit a business and social affair, and they look forward to the event with great interest. We understand that this is the first time that the International president has visited western Canada, and the members of local No. 191 will not spare any effort to make as good an impression of Winni. peg's advantages as possible.

The work attached to the secretary-treasurership of Typographical Union No. 191 has become so heavy and important that the union is now forced to employ a permanent secretary-treasurer. The union has had for some time the possible change before it, and at its regular November meeting it was decided that the time had arrived to make the change. There are now some 241 members in the local union, and also a large number in affiliation who are holding positions in country districts where there is not any organized union, or not enough printers to form a union. This, with the local work, requires a great amount of correspondence, and to keep up active organization work it is imperative to the interest of the trade, as a whole, that a permanent secretary be employed.

CHARLES ROLOFF.

By the death of Charles Roloff on August 27, 1909, his immediate family, St. Louis Union No. 8 and organized labor in general has suffered a loss hard to bear. His death was due in immediate cause to concussion of the brain due to a fall from a chair, where he had been placed while overcome with heat, but apart from this he suffered much illness in the last few years of his busy life.

For fourteen years he was the chairman of this chapel, whose interests always received his best thought and service, and his long and useful life was an inspiration to all who knew him.

MICHAEL F. KEARNEY. Resolutions adopted by Wilkes-Barre Typographical Union No. 187:

Whereas, In pursuance to the decree of an all wise Providence, our brother, Michael F. Kearney,

member of the International Typographical Union, and an employe of the Wilkes-Barre Record, departed this life at the early age of 34 years; and,

Whereas, Our Brother Kearney was not only a most efficient journeyman, loyal to his craft, genial, kind and companionable, but was also a loving husband and father, and an honorable citizen, "a worthy son of a worthy sire;” be it

Charles Roloff was one of those who hewed to the line of duty, come what might, and neither sickness nor disappointment could deter him from the performance of his duties as he saw them. He was born in the Argentine Republic, South Amer. ica, 37 years ago, and learned his trade in various job offices in St. Louis, working for a number of years in the George D. Barnard chapel; later he was in charge of the mechanical department of the Kastor & Sons advertising agency. He was a doer of things, always aggressive, always looking to the forefront, and very proficient at his trade. He held many posts of honor in No. 8, and was four times elected secretary of the central trades and labor union, to which turbulent body he was many times a delegate.

He was keenly a jobman, having jobmen's interdraped in mourning for thirty days as a token of respect; that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the bereaved parents with our heartfelt sympathy.

ests deeply at heart, yet those who knew him well will not hesitate to place him first a union manactive at all times even in the small affairs of No. 8 as well as its larger ones.

He was married but four years ago, and left behind wife and child, besides muther and sister, and two brothers. His wife was Miss Margaret Collins.

Leaving thus in what should have been the hey. day of his young manhood makes the grief of his many friends all the more keen, and I am they join with me in heartfelt condolence to those who were closer and nearer and dearer to him.

He who wishes to do wrong is never without a reason.-Syrus.
