WINNING THE FIGHT.
San Francisco Printers ' Can See a
Great Victory Drawing Near.
We congratulate the printing trades
unions of this city upon the fact that
their ght for fair play and the eight
hour day is already won.
Of the twenty-six offices that tried
to return to the nine-hour day, not
one has been able to secure work
men, although they have extensively
advertised "good positions at high
At the end of the first week of the
lock-out one of these twenty-six of
fices announced its return to the
eight-hour day, and gave as its rea
son therefor, "self-preservation." That
the other twenty-live will soon fol
low its example, there can be no
doubt, because none of the glitter
ing promises of the Citizens' Alliance
and the "walking delegate" of the Na
tional Typothetae have been ful
With two or three exceptions, the
employers who broke faith with the
unions and abrogated an agreement
proposed "by themselves, were de
ceived by misrepresentations into do
ing what they did, and when they are
thoroughly convinced of that fact
they will ask their locked-out men
to return to work. The sooner they
do so the better it will be for them
selves, for their trade is drifting in
to the eight-hour offices, where it will
remain unless they "resume business"

Never before has public sentiment

cause is so palpably righteous that

worded to deceive but to enlighten
and awaken in one a spirit of right
and justice. It is a most wholesome
and truthful recital of facts from start

THINK OF YOUR MOTHER.
A Street Car Incident That Is Repeat
ed Every Day in Lincoln.
x ne wageworiter 8 editor was on
a University Place car the other even
ing and noted an incident that de
serves some mention.. The car was
not crowded, but every seat was full,
most of the passengers being young
men and women. An old woman
boarded the car at Fourteenth street,
and not a young man offered her his
seat. She : was allowed to stand up
and balance herself as best she could
against the seats. ' At Sixteenth a
young woman handsomely dressed
boarded the car, and before she was
well inside the door two young men
jumped up and offered her their seats
with smiling bows and polite lifting
of their hats. " And the young lady,
overlooking the old lady who was
standing, dropped into one of the va
cant seats. The other young man im
mediately plumped down into his seat
Young man, suppose that old ladjr
were your mother. Did you ever stop
to think of her? And if you ever did,
did you have the littleness to sit
still and let an old lady "stand in
the street car? The young woman
mentioned above missed a golden op
portunity to teacn tne young men a
valuable lesson when she failed to
thank them for their offer and give
the old lady the proffered seat.
THE WOODMAN CONTRACT.
Lincoln Threatened With the Loss of
a Great Newspaper Job.
It is announced that after the Aug
ust issue of the Modern Woodman
that newspaper contract will be
transferred from the Journal to an
Indianapolis newspaper concern. . If
this is true it will be a severe loss
not only to printing circles but. to
business circles generally. , .
But The Wageworker refuses to
consider the matter settled. Once or
twice before since the' Journal took
the contract, the work has been let
to other parties and they had to throw
up the job. The work, of printing
and mailing 850,000 16-page papers a
month is something that not every
plant can successfully undertake. But
the Journal plant does it easily, and
we opine that in a short time it will

J. E. Mickel, foreman of - the Star,
has been off for a week, owing to a
severe attack of stomach trouble. . He
is getting along nicely now but is not
yet in shape to work steadily.
Johnnie Moore says it Is worth hav

to be able to enjoy the luxury of an
unbridled appetite for a month or two.
He says the only drawback is that if
he works long enough to earn the food
he hasn't got enough time to eat it.'

week or so ago, and it is presumed
that 'he landed there. .He said he
