Warning to Advertisers

And the Business Public Generally

Protect yourselves from being defrauded. The Brotherhood Railway Carmen of America is not sponsor for, nor interested in any souvenir or special programme or any other such deceptive publications of any kind whatever.

Realizing that there is no more prolific source of dishonesty perpetrated in the name of organized labor than that involved in the publication of souvenir books, reviews and special programs by unscrupulous projectors who have victimized merchants and other friends of our Brotherhood in a most shameful manner, your Grand Lodge officers desire to make the following announcement, to which they wish it understood they will rigidly adhere until such time as their policy in this regard is either endorsed or repudiated by the membership represented by delegates at a regular or special convention:

A number of souvenir books, reviews or special programs having been recently published, in which the good name of our Brotherhood has been used without authority or sanction of any kind from either the Brotherhood or its Grand Lodge officers, thus impairing our said good name and bringing us into disreputo with the business public generally, in all parts of the country, as a poverty stricken and contribution seeking organization, thus injuring the Interests of our members, besides injuring and deceiving fair minded business men, we wish it distinctly understood, that the only publication in which advertisements aro roceived is our official organ, The Railway Carmen's Journal, and we have endeavored to impross this upon our membership from time to time through these columns, but apparently without avail.

However, we are more concerned with tho present and the future than the past, and in order to be helpful in eliminating this cause of grevious complaint, we make the following announcement:

First-We insist that no lodge of our Brotherhood, or any person connected therewith, shall issue or cause to be issued any souvenir book, review or program, claiming that such book or other publication is issued for or on behalf of the Brotherhood Railway Carmen of America or any of its subordinate lodges.

Second-That any city chosen by a convention of the Brotherhood Rallway Carmen of America to hold the convention following, shall not directly or indirectly, through any local lodge of our Brotherhood or any other medium, issue a souvenir book or similar publication claiming that such publication is issued for or on behalf of the Brotherhood Railway Carmen of America.

Third-That in the event of any such souvenir or kindred publication being projected or about to be issued, directly or indirectly, by any local lodge, person or persons in the city in which the convention was selected to be held, in violation of the letter and spirit of this announcement, your Grand Lodge officers will use every means within their power to have the city in which the convention is to be held changed to the one which received the next highest number of votes for that honor.

Fourth-That we will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any person or persons who shall in any way issue souvenir books, directories, or other similar publications, in which the name of the Brotherhood Railway Carmen of America is used in any manner whatever, as publisher, owner or benoticiary.

Fifth-It is again emphasized most emphatically that The Railway Carmen's Journal is the only official publication of the Brotherhood, and is the only publication in which advertisements are received.
