    In this labor spy report given to Broussais Beck on April 22, 1920, "Agent #17" [Edward W. Graham] records the events of the Central Labor Council meeting held the previous evening. "Mulligan", the Business Agent of the Boilermakers local, informs the Council of "trouble at Todds in Tacoma", and asks all the delegates to instruct their union members to stay away from Tacoma if possible. Mulligan adds that the Boilermakers had gone out on strike Tuesday morning, and that the Machinists were holding a strike vote Wednesday evening. "Kennedy of the Janitors and Watchmens unions" calls for all unions to direct their combined force at the Bon Marche, as well as Standard Furniture. He says that the Bon Marche is "the one store that counted". The Council goes on to draft a resolution condemning Seattle Mayor Caldwell for preventing George Vanderveer from addressing some mass meetings on the topic of "The Invisible Government". less
