M'CARTHY MAY BE

Owing to th fact that District At-

St Louis, Mo., Aug. . Ths Interna

fiftieth annual convention was formally
opened yesterday in th convention hall
at th world' fair, got down c o business
in earnest today. Officers' reports wer
presented and various questions of im
portance to ths craft wer Introduced
and referred no.th- proper committees
for consideration- and. action.
Th reports of the officer show that
th last year with, ths organisation has
been on of fair progress, marked by
three disastrous Strikes, but at the asms
tlm by decided gain and successes.
Of th latter President Lynch said m
his annual report to th convention that
"hour hav been reduced.' wrong elimi
nated and difficulties avoided through a
careful observance of the law, patient
negotiation and International assist
President Lynch urged ths union to
stand for th eight-hour day and sag
gee ed that.th present convention take
some action looking toward the estab
lishment , of the eight-hour day. Th
president also called attention to the
arbitration agreement between th In
ternational Typographical union and the
American Newapaper Publishers asso
ciation, entered Into at a Joint meeting of
representatives In New York last Octo
ber, and recommended that "If th
agreement is to live It acknowledged
shortcomings shall be remedied."
Th report also sec forth that not so
much attention has been paid in the last
year to the organisation of new unions
as has been devoted to strengthening
those In the field. In spite of that fact,
the report showed that with one excep
tion the fiscal year of 1902-1101 the
membership of ths union ha grown
more during the last It months than
ever before In its history. The average
paying membership during the year waa
1,721 more than It was In th preceding

to keep him Imprisoned until he paid.
