The strike of the Liaeoln Telephone Co.'s employes is to be de
plored for manjT reasons. Strikes are always bad things, never jus
tifiable until every other recourse fails, but often the only weapon
which workers can wield in their own behalf. The telephone using
public is interested in this matter because it is the chief sufferer at
present. Later the striking employes may suffer most. But al
ways somebody suffers, and usually nee.dlessly, for the reason that
a little commonsense and a little justice on both sides would have
removed all trouble. Will Maupin's Weekly holds no brief for the
strikers; neither does it have any interest in the controversy save
as a telephone user. But it is of the candid opinion that the Tele
phone Co. is in such position that it can illy afford to court public
condemnation. This newspaper suggests to the company and the
strikers that they submit their differences to arbitration with a
-.iew to speedy settlement. If the chief obstacle in the way of set
tlement is in the shape of the "scabs" who have taken the places
of the striker, that ought easily to be overcome. The worker who
will betray his fellow workers, or take advantage of their necessi
ties, isn't worthv of verv much consideration.
This community is entitled to the best possible telephone serviee.
"he workers who have helped to build this community, and who
are rearing their families here, are entitled to a bit more consider
ation than mere pack animals. We have not gone deeply into the
merits of this case, and are not prepared to say which party there
to has the most justice on its side. But we are inclined to believe
that if the company had treated the old employes as well as it is
treating the new ones, banqueting them, paying them top wages
and riding them around in autos, there would have been no strike.
The company is entitled to consideration, too. It is entitled to a
fair return on the money invested, to the protection of the law, and
to a chance to increase its business. But the public is entitled to
something and it is for the public that this newspaper is pleading.
Congratulations to Omaha upon her acquirement of the water
works plant. It was a long and bitter fight, but Omaha won against
long odds. This puts Omaha further m line with progressive cities.
Omaha citizens have been so busy building a big and busy city
that they haven't had much time to devote to municipal problems,
but Omaha is finding herself. She is not less busy than of yore-
indeed, is more so but she has systematized her business activities
and now has time to devote to making the city something more than
a mere trading mart. She' is paying attention to men and women,
as well as to money and merchandise. She is building parks and
boulevards, beautifying the streets, ereeting more and better school
buildings, and in many other ways' building for a better citizenship
in future. We are mighty proud of Omaha and her progress. She
is a credit to Nebraska and to the country.
We congratulate the gentlemen at the head of the Lincoln
ilonument Association upon their decision to have the nuveiling on
"Labor Day." A more fitting date could not have been selected
than that set apart by law. to pay honors to the dignity of labor
and tributes to the group of toil. Lincoln was essentially a man
of the people. The men .who eat their bread in the sweat of their
I faces had in him a friend and a champion. He loved them and
suffered with and f )r them. He recognized their right to organize
for their own protection, and clearly proved that labor had more
rights than mere dollars. The organized laborers of Lincoln and of
Nebraska should be even now preparing to take a very prominent
part in the ceremonies attendant upon the unveiling of the Lincoln
Business men are now beginning to understand the true inward
ness of Postmaster General Hitchcock's "reforms'in the postal
service. The mail deliveries are late and things are getting pretty
badly balled up. Under the old methods substitute carriers were
put on the routes when regular carriers took their annual vacations.
Now the carriers regularly on duty must "double up" and cover
the territory of their absent mates. And they must do it without
working overtime, and heaven knows they have hard work covering
their regular territory under ordinary circumstances. Mr. Hitch
cock has reduced expenses, it is true, but it has been at the ex
pense of the service and to the detriment of the men who do the real
work of the postal department.
Some of these days when we have nothing else to do, we are
going to sit down and read the democratic national platform. But it
must be a cool and pleasant day, when trouble is absent and every
thing is conductive to happy thoughts. We know in a general way
what the plattorm contains, and we are just a bit interested in
learning how any man or set of men could assemble so many words
together to represent the ideas contained therein.
Speaker Clark will not get anywhere in the estimation of right
thinking people by denouncing Mr. Bryan. The speaker would do
far better to chide the managers of his campaign who foozled their
putt. If Champ Clark's managers had done like Wilson's manager,
and opposed the nomination and election of Parker to the chairman
ship of the convention, Champ Clark would today be the democratic
I candidate for president.
Instead of those Bowling Green, Mo., democrats sending scur-
rillious telegrams to Bryan, they would better be sending them to
Dave Francis and Bill Stone, the old-school politicians who tied tha
Clark boom up with the Tammany crowd and thus damned that
boom in the eyes of a majority of democrats. We still think Champ
Clark is all that Bryan said he was in that Vandalia speech, :-.nd we
think that Bryan thinks so. But when Clark's managers tied np
with the Tammany-Ryan-Belmont-Morgan bunch to put Parker
over, they spelled defeat for the great Missourian. And in the
editorial sanctum of this little newspaper we are regretting the re
sult as only those can who have gone down to defeat with a personal
rriend and a political leader.

Thrift is the difference between the House of Have and
the House of Want. It is the difference between spnding all
that you earn and earning a bit more than you spend. It is
the difference between a little self-denial now that you may
have ease in the future, and indulging now at the expense of
privation in future.
Thrift is a habit as easily cultivated as the habit of ex
travagance. Thrift does not mean simply sa v nimgnoeity;
travagance. Thrift does not mean simply saving money ; it
means making money earn something for you. Let us help
you put your hard-earned dollars to work for you. You save
them and we'll make, them work for you. You get the profits
from the dollars you save. Our system is simple. Let us ex
plain it to you in detail. ,

For I am the doctor of Boot and Shoe,
And I serve the living and not the dead,
With the best of leather, wax, nails and thread,
I can sew on a sole, or nail it fast,
And do a good job and make it last. . '

Doubt not my statement, for work proves it true.

Not only you, but your family and wife.

Worn out and run down, besides feeling sore;
Though I don't use poultice, plaster or pill,
I can cure all sick shoes, no matter how ill.
