Interesting Notes, 8ome of Them Be
lated, From a Live Organization.
Capital Auxiliary No. 11 is going to
celebrate the "Glorious Fourth" by giv
ing a picnic for Itself and the Typo
graphical Union. The picnic will be
held at the State Farm on the after
noon of the Fourth, and the basket
dinner will be spread In the evening.
The committee is preparing to make
this one of those old-fashioned cele
brations we read about, love to re
member and long to enjoy again.
The following interesting Auxiliary
letter was written by Mrs. George H.
Freeman for last week's issue but was
received too late:
Capital Auxiliary No. 11 met in reg
ular session June 21 at its new and
commodious home, ' Bohanon's hall.
The "bigness" of the surroundings
seemed in a way to minimize the num
bers of the faithful in attendance, but
business proceeded in the usual rou
tine. Two new members, Mesdames
Radebach and Harvey, were obligated.
Communications, reports and bills
were disposed of and then officers were
elected: The old and efficient corps
of officers was re-elected with the ex
ception of Mrs. Will Bustard, guide.
She having departed from the city,
Mrs. W. M. Maupin was elected to
fill the vacancy, An executive commit
tee consisting of Mesdames King,
Compton, Marshal and Norton, with
the president, Mrs. Smith, as chair
man, was elected. The writer would
like to remark in passing on the de
lightful harmony and good fellowship
that prevailed through the entire ses
sion. A Fourth of July picnic was
suggested and favorably received.
Mesdames J. E. Mlckel, Righter, Mau
pin, King and Harvey were appointed
as a committee on arrangements.
Everybody who is eligible Is invited to
come with well filled baskets and as
sure a success. The social commit
tee for July is composed of Mesdames
J. E. Mickel, King and Radebach. Un
der good and welfare of the order Mrs.
W. A. Compton urged that members
rise when addressing the chair, there
by showing due deference and avoid
ing confusion. The writer would sug
gest a "parliamentary drill" added to
our routine work. Adjournment was
followed by refreshments, served by
Mesdames Fred Mickel, Marshal and
King. I appeal to our membership for
a fuller representation at our regular
meetings. We promise full return in
social enjoyment and intellectual up
lift for the exertion made.
Mr. and Mrs. John Moore are re
ported well on the road to complete
recovery although still weak from
the effects of their long illness. The
members of the Auxiliary, as well as
every printer, sincerely wish for their
speedy return to complete health.
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Simmons are
expected to be. in the city soon for a
visit with friends. '
CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
The old-fashioned official of the cor
poration protested against the manner
of conducting the business.
"We are fracturlaf the law and are
liable to be sent to jail," he said. '
"O, get up-to-date!" exclaimed the
wise official. "No matter how crooked
we are, we won't go" to Jail. Remem
ber that the administration brings ac
tion against the corporation,, and you
can't send a corporation to Jail."
Being thus assured the old-fashioned
and behlnd-the-times official gave tacit
consent to the looting of the public.
A Handful of Delegates Present at the
First Meeting In Five Weeks.
The Central Labor Union met Tues
day evening for the first time in five
weeks, and five unions were represent
ed with less than twelve delegates.
The lack of interest is disheartening,
and it is up to the unions of the city
to do something to revive the Interest
or allow the Central body to go by the
board. The benefit performance an
nounced elsewhere should have the
effect of arousing new interest, and it
is to be hoped tfiat every union man
and woman in the city will take hold
and make the benefit a rousing suc
cess. A communication from Secretary
Morrison of the American Federation
of Labor was read calling attention
to the fact that the local building
laborers had withdrawn from the Hod
Carriers' International, an affiliating
body, and joined the International
Building Laborers, . a non-affiliating
body. Secretary Morrison called at
tention to the fact that a non-affiliating
body was not entitled to represent
ation in the local central body. The
delegates from the Laborers' Union

ARMSTRONG CLOTHING COMPJtNY
GOOD CLOTHING MERCHANTS
gave their reasons for the ' change.
Under the old regime they were pay
ing per capita dues without receving
any benefits whosoever. Their 'in
ternational was unable to pay office
expenses, they had no death, sick or
strike benefits and were unable to se
cure any benefits whatsoever. With
present affiliations they were enjoy
ing all these privileges and were very
well satisfied. They declared them
selves ready to withdraw from the
central body rather than resume their
old relations with the Hod Carriers'
and Building Laborers' International
On motion a committee was appoint
ed to correspond with Secretary Mor
rison, and Mr. Schiermeyer of the
Laborers' Union was made a member
of the committee.
The carpenters filed a protest
against the Laborers' for allowing
members to do rough carpenter work.
The protest will be investigated by the
The liberal offer of the Fulton Stock
company and Manager Zehrung of the
Oliver to give a benefit performance
of "Lost Paradise" was accepted with
thanks, and a committee appointed to
take charge. Treasurer Evans was
made chairman of the committee and
will be assisted by W. M. Maupin and
A. L. A. Schiermeyer. Announce
ment of this benefit is made else
where. Rev. Mr. Batten of the Ministerial
Union was called upon and made a
short address In which he advocated
systematic endeavor to do something
to advance the social welfare of Lin
coln something to make it more at
tractive as a residence city. Parks,
playgrounds, cleaner streets and more
public spirit were among the things
he ' mentioned and urged union men
to take the lead in securing. "Action
like this," said Rev. Mr. Batten, "will
convince men who may now possibly
be opposed to unionism, that labor
unions stand for something more than
the mere dollars and cents paid them

"Sadie Maguire" and His Western
Laborer Set a New Mark.
With this week's issue the Western
Laborer, Omaha, enters upon its fif
teenth volume, making It one of the
very oldest labor papers in the coun
try. A few weeks ago its editor,
Frank A. Kennedy, celebrated his
tenth anniversary on the Laborer, mak
ing him one of the oldest labor editors
in the country in point of service. The
Wageworker congratulates both Ken
nedy and the Laborer. It is under
lasting obligations to both. Under Mr.
Kennedy's management the Laborer
has taken front rank in the labor
newspaper field, and it is one of the
most widely quoted papers in the
country. Its service to the cause of
unionism can scarcely be estimated,
and this young labor newspaper wish
es Its old contemporary a continuance
of prosperity and a lot more of it. 1
