    In this report to Broussais Beck on July 25th, 1919, "Agent #106" relates a conversation with Phil Pearl about the Triple Alliance and its advantages for labor. #106 attends the Boilermakers' Local meeting, where the shop steward system is endorsed by a vote. Allegations are made that funds had been illegally collected by "Doyle", the son of Charles Doyle, the business agent for the Central Labor Council. A man named Brennon implores the local to investigate a possible "spy system" in the shipyards, as his employer had recently intimidated him with information about his labor activities. The meeting concludes with a committee report regarding Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.) members who claim to have been suspended by the local in 1917. less
