A Card from the Om:r of Lincoln
Tothe rrlendsof ths Worklnarmtn:
For some time past the Nebraska State
Journal hat Industriously circulated the
.report, by mill, by its agents, and even
by telegraph, that the strike of the print
ers against that paper had been settled
and that there was harmony now exist
ing between The Journal and the work
ingmenof Lincoln. 'We want to say to
our friends throughout the state that
such is not the case. The differences
between the State Journal company and
the printers have not been 'adjusted, nor
has the strike been declared off, nor will
it be. Oa the contrary, the fight against
The State Journal as a pronounced enemy
of labor will be prosecuted as vigorously
in the future as at any time in the past.
The attitude taken by The Journal on all
matters affecting the working people
makes this fight the concern not of the
Typographical union alone, but of every
labor organization in the state, and as
such it will bs fought out.
Friendly papers please copy,
M. T. White, President.

HIS WEDDING PRESENT,
Barker came down to breakfast to
find the usual number of letters lytng
beside his plate. Long letters from
friends, short notes from slight ac
quaintances, tradesmen's bills and in
vitations mixed together indiscrimi
nately. He did not mind the bills,
though they reached him with re
markable frequency. He had plenty
of money with which to pay them at
any time, but somehow he hatd to
do it though the payment would not
have deprived him of a single luxury
for even a day. He was a thorn in
the side of the people with whom he
dealt, for they had to wait indefinitely
for their dues. Vet they did not like
to proceed to extreme measures if
they could avoid it for his custom
was extensive enough to be well
worth keeping, and they were sure of
being paid eventually. And they
know that Barker's check was as good
as greenbacks when they could
Barker pioked up the last letter.
He knew, from the shape and from
the quality of the paper, that it was
an invitation. "Mr. and Mrs J. B
Smith request the pleasure, etc., etc
Barker seldom wasted time on the
clerks at Ifa nmett's; he usually
walked through the store to the little
o.tlce at the back, from which Ham
mett seldom issued except to attend
to some speoially honored customer.
Hammett was busy when he entered,
and Barker sat down to wait until
the other had finished the entries he

is hardly anything left to buy for my

".So it has, so it has," smiled Ham

"I am rather cramped Jut at pres

send me a check on account of your

to ask you," he went on apologet
ically, "but during the last few
months I have had an unusually large
number of bills out, and they have
left tne very short"
"That's all rlarht,' Hamraott, of
course." leturned Barker, pleasant
ly. "How much do I ewe you?"
Hauimott named the amount.
"So much?" queried Burker. "I
had fancied it was leaf, but I suppose
a man always underestimates such
things. Well, I'll send you a check
In a few days; If I forget it just re

"Thank you, Mr. Barker; it will bo

would be surprised to learn how
much I have ut in that way, and
what straits I have been put to some
times of lato even for the means to
pay nfy workmen."
"It's too bud; people ought to pay
up more promptly. You should come
down on them if they don't"
"Loyou think soP" smiled the sil
versmith. "But you see, they would
be very likely to be angry and with

"No man of sense would do that,"
asserted i'arker. "You have a Hjrht

should feel insulted at tain; asked
civilly to pay his just debts."
"Well, some dny I'll cone down on

Various matters prevented I'arker
from calling at the Smith house until
the very day before the wedding.
People ought to have more consider
ation than to call at such a time;
but Barker was sufficiently intimate
at the Smiths' to know that he would
not bo in the way. or, if he should
be. that he would bo dismissed po
litely. Miss Mamie, though in the midst
of enthralling preparations, was de
lighted to see him. "Come upstairs."
she said, "and see all my presents.
I haven't pretended to count them,
but there are an astonishing number,
and they are just lovely. My feel
ings run away with me when I think
of all those beautiful things."
Barker went and duly admired th
display, keeping an eye 0on for
his own, which he not unreasonably
expected to see in the place of honor.
It was nowhere to be found.
"Hasn't Hammett sent mine yet?"
he attked, at length. "He promised
faithfully to have It done in plenty
of tlnio, and he has never dlnap
pointod me yet." '
Oh. yes," answered the girL "It
came several days ago, tnd was just
magnificent I don't know how to
thank you enough for It It was the
very pettiest thing of the whole lot
But" with a merry laugh, "a very
funny thing happered In connection
with it Yesterday the man who
brought It called again and asked to
be allowed to take it back to th
store. He said that it wasn't paid
for yet. and that Mr. , Hammett
badn't intended to let it go out of his
hands until it was paid for. It had
been sent up by mistake, the man
said. Of course we knew there had
boon some mistake, but we gav It to
the man, and no doubt it is still
thereat Hammett's, waiting until
your bill is settled," with another
laugh of enjoyment at the joke. "We
knew it wouldn't make any differ
ence, and we were sura It would turn
up again before to-morrow."
Th more Barker thought about It
the more his anger Increased; and by
the time he reached Hammett's place
be was ftilrly boiling over with rage.
"Look lioro, Hammett," he cried,
as he strodo into the little otllce,
what the devil do you mean by
sending up to Hmith's for my present
and with such a message, tooP"
"Good afternoon, Mr. barker," re
turned the dealer calmly, Has any
thing gone wrong?"
"Wrong!" Harkor was ready to
explode. "Didn't you send for that
present of mine and say it wasn't
paid for yetP"
"I bolleve-I did, Mr, Barker.
Wasn't the fact correctly stated?"
"Confound you, yes; but did you
think I was going to cheat you out of
Oh, not at all," answered the Jew
eler. "Nothing of the sort. I knew
perfectly well that you were perfect
ly good for a hundred times the
amount of your bill any time that
yen chose to draw a check for it. " He
opened a fat ledger. "Hut do you
happen to remember our last conver
sation' at ''the tlnrbyour ordor was
given P" i "V
"Perfectly. What about it?" '
"Woll, sir, you may remember
giving me soma advice about how to
treat some of my patrons who were
perfectly able to pay their bills."
"Yes, that is true," murmured
Barker, who was cooling rapidly.
But 1 didn't expect you to try it on
me, and you needn't have taken that
way of doing it, either, Hammett
Think what a position it puts me in."
"Don't let that trouble you for a
moment," said the jeweler quickly.
I can put that right in ten minutes.
I hated ta have to do such a thing,
but it really seemed the only way to
make you realize the state of affairs."
"If you can make it right, Ham
mett, I'll draw you a check on the
spot," rejoined Barker.
"Thunk you, sir; you shall see,"
said the jeweler. He called a ines
senger.and gave him some directions.
"You see, sir, I tell them it was all
a mistake of my own men, apologize
humbly, and take all the blame upon
my own nhoulders. No one could

I wa reminded very forcibly of the
above quotation by reading an article lu
one of the morning paper not long ago
deriding labor organizations. The article
in question stated that labor unions were
the means of bringing men's ability down
to a dead level; allowing no man to do
