of ths unionising' of the Portlsnd street
railway system. Mr. Staley was the
main mover In the organisation of tlie

gan some month's ago with a proposition
that ths men be organised into a bene
ficiary society to take over and admin
ister the hospltsl fund now carried by
the company from the men's wsges.
Ths plan was to develop, from this
nucleus a beneficiary society that would
have a sick benefit, an insurance fea
ture, a social side and ' other things,
thought to be desirable, staying away
as fsr as practicable from the features
of labor unionism that havo aroused
ths extreme antagonism of corporate
Interests.' Mr. Staley has devoted some
