Excerpt from The Tobacco Worker, Volumes 8-10

At the time of sending in my last report I was in Montreal, where I visited over a dozen of the local unions before leaving. I also attended another meeting of our local before going from Montreal, at which gathering I instructed the officers and members as to their duties and gave them a talk on the Union Label, explaining to them how they would strengthen and build up their union, and increase their wages and better their conditions generally by carrying on an active agitation for our Blue Label and by demanding other articles bearing the Union Isabel of other organizations.

I had the satisfaction before leaving Montreal of seeing some of the results which my agitation had effected. I found that, owing to a demand for labeled tobaccos, a large number of the dealers who had never before handled union lines, had commenced to stock their shelves and showcases with lines of Blue Labeled chewing and smoking tobaccos.

Apart from that, within a month's time, there will not be a store in the city which will not have in stock several brands of Blue Labeled tobaccos. This will be due to the fact that some one or two of the four local factories which have lately adopted our label have their brands on sale in all the stores in the city, which I believe will be a benefit to all union factories, and also for the Tobacco Workers, as it will help to lead to an increased demand for the label.

It is a pleasure to be able to report an addition of several more good brands of smoking tobacco which will bear the Blue Label. The firm of J. Rattry & Co. having decided to unionize their factory and in the future use the label. They are manufacturers of the widely known "Mastiff and Tarton" brands of cut smoking tobacco.

Leaving Montreal my first stop was at St. Johns, Que., where I spent a couple of days and addressed meetings of the Brotherhood of Carpenters Laborers' Unions.

The Laborers' Union have a membership of over three hundred, and comprise the biggest part of the movement in St. Johns.

After being informed of the conditions of the Tobacco Workers they promised to do all they could to assist us in bringing Blue Label tobaccos to the front, and pledged themselves to buy in the future only such brands as had the Blue Label upon it.

Prom St. Johns I went to Farham and Sherbrooke. In both of these places I found, upon visiting the dealers, that labeled tobaccos and cigarettes were not on sale with the exception of the T. & B. package. I was unable to meet with any of the four unions located in Farham, as they did not meet until the following week, but I called on the officers of all the unions, and explained to them the purpose of my mission: also supplied them with label literature, which they promised to distribute among their members and also bring the matter up before the next meeting of their respective locals.
