in the conference of the presidents at
Portland was how to gain members.
Many plans were given, but of all, the
method of house to house canvass for
members, and each year for .their dues,
was universally conceded to be the
very best. To unions, then, I urge a
thorough trial of the plan. There ar
some in your union who can visit on
behalf of the union. Systematize the
j work for them and have the visiting
J begun at once. If you have none who
jean canvass, then I certainly advise
I that you employ some one. And to in individual?,,

in her arms, when J. D. Moorer sprang
