The Ship Carpenters and Caulkers Union

Mr. Editor, - Allow me space for a few words to correct a statement in you much esteemed journal in reference to the Union on the Welland Canal. I would just state that the Society lately formed is not broken up; and as to the organization, no man could find anything wrong in it.

But admitting some of the rules were too stringent to suit some of the employers, only one firm made it known to the Society. We do not deem it necessary to comment on the past, but we appeal to an enlightened community if we are to be thrust into a state of serfdom to have to beg a written order or pass, when our interest or convenience requires us to change our location, and that order given if it suits the former location, and that order given if it suits the former employers. Trusting your well-known sense of justice will induce you to insert the above, I remain.,

Yours, &c.
Fairplay.
