No. 1 of America of Butte, an independ
ent organization of which Tom Camp
bell is the head. The sessions began
The constitution of the Canadian "one
big union" convention with Its pream
ble was adopted almost word for word,
the principal change being in the
amount of pay provided for members
of the executive committee.
The "one big union" as outlined In
the meeting here provides a plan for
collective bargaining, the demands of
one labor group to be supported by
every other and the general strike to
i-onstitute a weapon to force com
pliance on the part of the employers.
The preamble begins with these words:
Orgaalaatloa Held Hope.
"Modern Industrial society is divided
Into two classes those who possess and
to not produce, and those who produce
and do not possess. Reference is then
made to the "class struggle in which It
is declared there can be no compromise
and which can be won by the workers
only through organization.
Throughout all of the session of tne
convention antagonism wae expressed
toward the American federation, som
or the speakers denouncing that or
ganixation in the most spirited terms.
The leaders express satisfaction over
The work of the convention and sa
that they believe that It Is the begin
ning of a movement that is destined to
prcad throughout the United Slates.

The police bureau needs 100 addi

to enable it to handle Its work prop
erly, according to a letter Chief of Po-
ice Johnson has written to Mayor Bak
er and the city council. The chief says
hat the shortest beat In the city Is IS
blocks in size, while many are greatly
Chief Johnson says the force has not
been enlarged with the growth of the
ity during the war and is now much
smaller than the force maintained by
most cities of equal size. He finds that
Portland has 113 less policemen than
Seattle. less than one-third as many as
San Francisco and less than half as
many as Los Angeles or Cincinnati.
"A family in Lenta Is entitled to the
same protection as a family in the Nob
Hill district." says the letter. "Portland
has 66 square miles of territory within
Its corporate limits. The river splits
it In two. which means, in fact, two
cities. The outlying districts, some of
which contain banks which must be
policed, have grown, and more men are
necessary to cover them.

doubtful whether a vote would be
taken this week.

gramme, the witness testified that he
wrote portions of the pamphlet.

attorney asked, " 'we are unalterably
opposed to permitting stockholders of
private corporations to reap enormous
profits while at the same time a species
of coercion is exercised toward already
poorly paid employes of both sexes in
urging them to purchase government
bonds to help finance the war?"'
Gilbert Backs Statement.
"Yes," replied the witness, "and I
believe It."
"You wanted to tell the people this
too, to conscript men and exempt the
bloodstained wealth coined from the
sufferings of humanity ia repugnant to
the-spirit of America and contrary to
the ideals of democracy?'
"It certainly is."
'You wanted the people to under
stand that wealth was being coined
from the blood of our soldiers?"
'That's what It says." replied Gilbert,
referring to the war pamphlet.

"We compelled them to admit that
