WHY THE B. R. C.
In the first place, what is the purpose and the aim of the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, and the fundamental principles desired to be accomplished in its inception? It is a bona fide labor organization of men and women working for the common good, to promote among its members a closer bond of unity and fellowship, to perpetuate the spirit of the founders of this Republic and those patriots who laid down their lives for the cause that "all men are created equal," and last but not least, to teach these principles to our posterity by living up to them ourselves.
It is ridiculous to assert that in union there is no strength. Benjamin Franklin said to his colleagues, "Gentlemen, if we do not hang together, they will hang us together." The Speaker of the House, Hon. Champ Clark, made the statement, "I think Abraham Lincoln owes his success in his political campaigns to one single quotation from the Bible. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Speaker Clark said the continued use of the excerpt soon won Lincoln fame. This is exactly the feeling that the railroad and steamship clerks of this country should have. Stand firm and united, be true to yourselves and each other, as we all know eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Abate the vigilance and watch the liberty vanish as a pinch of gunpowder would in Vesuvius.
There is another reason why we should be staunch and true members of the B. R. C. It is the visible results of its existence. We should have no time for the so-called man who says the Brotherhood has done nothing for him. Ninety per cent of the benefits to the craft can be attributed to the activity of the B. R. C. and the argument of the non to the contrary is absurd. There is the obstinate non who often calls attention to some minor blunder of a member of the Brotherhood, and which he gives as his reasons for not affiliating with the organization of his craft. He does not stop to consider that all men are subject to err. He does not compare his own inconsistency with the small errors of his fellow workers. Stop and think about a hive of bees. There are the workers and there are the drones or the parasites who would partake of the fruits of those that work. But do the workers stand for this? No; they do not. If the non persists in such a view and his mental equilibrium is so much disturbed by some small error that he will point out, the axiom, "No card, no favors," is a good antidote.
If your friend is opposed to the B. R. C. he is not your best friend. If he is repugnant to and works in derogation of the B. R. C. he is not fit to be your friend. He that is wont to chide you for belonging to the B. R. C. should have his trouble for his pains. Remember there are two species of
