The year just past has been a memcrable one in the history of the Brotherhood notwithstanding the determined opposition of Railway Officials in some localities and the many obstacles that we have had to overcome; the organization has continually advanced and prospered, and is now permanently established in localities that heretofore had been recognized as antiorganization or hostile territory.

The successes that we have had in 1913, is only a prelude to what we may rightly expect during the present year, if the members will only maintain the attitude and persevere in their efforts as they did during the year just ended.
We deem it appropriate at this time to call the attention of our members to the unusually great amount of unrest, uneasiness, discontent and dissatisfaction which has existed among the clerical forces during the past year, on almost all of the Railroads in this country. Knowing the conditions which existed and the hostile and unwarranted attitude of Railway Officials to the organized clerks and the harsh and unjust treatment that many clerks received; we are not surprised at the actions taken by some of them, in fact it was what might reasonably be expected of any class of men with red blood in their veins, when they have sufficient evidence of unjust practices and discrim

If these chaotic feelings of unrest are to cease, then railroad officials and others will have to change their mode of doing business and treat the men in the clerical department with more consideration, according them the same rights and privileges accorded other classes of service men. Until that time comes the present unrest and dissatisfaction which is so prevalent among the clerks will continue (not from choice), but as a rebuff to the dilatory and unjust policies of railway officials, and the further vindication of the manhood and stability of the clerks for which they are noted, when dealing with difficult problems.
There are, however, times in the history of all organizations when it is necessary and essential to the best interests of all that these vexatious questions be considered in a cool and deliberate manner; patience would in all probability have been instrumental in securing for the men some tangible benefits and permanent relief, but unfortunately for the general movement the proper precaution is not always taken and as a result thereof we frequently lose an excellent opportunity to reach a peaceable solution of the pending trouble. Vindictiveness and chagrin in the heat of passion is the most dangerous element to success. In this respect will state that there are entirely too many of our mem
