Vhen we offer special bargains and claim to include
everything, we do not sequester a lot of high priced
goods and work off the cheap ones. We reserved
blacks from this suit sale for the reason that blacks
are always seasonable and standard. The bargains
we are now offering have never been equalled in Lin
coln. We can sell for less and make a better profit
because we are out of the1 high rent district. And
we have a resident buyer in the east who is always
picking up bargains for our store. Look at these
special bargain prices and then come in.
How is this? During
August any Suit in the

Caps at Wonderful Prices
t We have all kinds, styles and sizes of caps, and we
secured them at such a price that we can almost
give them to you. And we do come so near giving
them away that the price cuts little figure. Just
think of a good union made cap for 10c, 15c, 25c, up
to $1. Caps for boys and girls; caps for babies;
caps for men. But in our special cap bargain de

THE CHURCH AND LABOR.
Gratifying Signs That They are Grow
ing Into Closer Relationship.
We desire to call especial attention
to the following resolutions, adopted
by the general assembly of the Pres
byterian church of American at the
annual presbytry at Winona Lake,
Indiana. The resolutions disclose a
gratifying awakening on the part of
the church to the necessity of getting
into closer relations with organized
labor, and The Wageworker is con
fident that the great Presbyterian
church will find itself upon the
threshold of a great field just as soon
as it develops its new project into
tangible form. The resolutions fol
low: "Appreciating the increasing im
portance of the Industrial problem
and realizing that the labor question
is fundamentally a moral and a re
ligious question, and that it will
never be settled upon any other basis,
we recommend that the Presbyterian
Home Mission Committees appoint
sub-committees for . the purpose of
making a systematic study of the en
tire problem in their respective local
ities. "The committees shall co-operate
with the newly-organized working
man's department of the board of
home missions, thus establishing, in
connection with the organized Pres
byterianism of every city in America,
a board of experts, who may be able
to inform the churches with respect
to the aims of organized labor, and
to inform the workingmen concern
ing the mission of the church.

ANOTHER UNION OFFICE.
Nebraska Printing Company Gets
Right and is Now a Union Shop.
Wednesday evening the Nebraska
Printing Co. signed up with the Ty
pographical, Pressmen's and Book
tinders' Union and is no wa union
shop from press room to bindery.
The good work of the executive com
mittees of the three unions entitles
them to the hearty thanks of the
Tuesday morning a walk-out oc
curred at the Nebraska, the result of
Manager Levy's refusal to negotiate.
Later he sent for the committees
and after a lengthy conference the
trouble was adjusted and the em
ployes notified to ' return to work.
The Nebraska has been on the unfair
list ever since it entered business,
and consequently has been discrimi
nated against. From now on Man
ager Levy will find himself backed
by organized labor, and every effort
will be made to assist him in in
creasing his . business. The Wage
worker hastens to assure him that it
stands ready to give him all the en
couragement possible, and it wishes
for him a vastly increased volume of
business during the coming years.
The Nebraska Printing Co. prints a
system of duplicate and triplicate
counter checks that are a source of
great convenience to merchants, and
a large trade in this line has been
The "squaring" of the Nebraska
Printing Co. almost wholly unionizes
the printing business of Lincoln, and
an effort will now be made to bring
the remaining shops into line by
showing its managers that they have
everything to gain and nothing to
lose by dealing fairly with organized
labor. The Wageworker congratu-

THE LINCOLN GAS COMPANY.
A Few Words of Appreciation Con
cerning an Enterprising Insti
tution. Lincoln Gas and Electric Light com
pany, and we take this occasion to
voice our appreciation of the courtesy
and enterprise of that big business in
stitution. People have fallen into the habit of
condemning public service corpora
tions as a whole, forgetting to dis
criminate between those that aim to
treat the public fairly and those
which look upon the public as a lemon
to be squeezed. We are not prepared
to say whether the Lincoln Gas and
Electric Light company could furnish
gas at a lower price we only know
that the company is furnishing fuel
gas at a rate than makes it far
cheaper than coal as a kitchen fuel,
to say nothing of its added advan
tages in the points of comfort .and
convenience. The Lincoln Gas and
Electric Light company has paid
every cent of taxes it owes the city,
and it has made no desperate fight
either to avoid payment or to secure
a reduction below a fair valuation. It
is endeavoring to treat the public
fairly, and only those who have selfish
ends to serve will assert that the com
pany is in politics.
To Mr. Hunting, manager of the
department of new business, and to
Mr. Honeywell, general manager,
The Wageworker is indebted for
many courtesies, and it assures them
that in their efforts to deal fairly with
the people and to enlarge their busi
ness through legitimate channels
they will have the cordial support of

Organizer for the Pressmen Finds
Things to His Liking in Lincoln
'"From the standpoint of organiza

Lincoln in better shape than almost
any other city I have visited during
the last year."
So declared Mr. Galosowsky, dis
trict organizer of the Printing, Press-
mens' and Assistants Union, who is
in the city in the interests of his or
ganization. Under the impulse of
Mr. Golosowsky's enthusiasm the local
Pressmens' Union has taken a new
start, and within the past ten days
has initiated sixteen new members.
As a result the union. Is greatly
strengthened. Mr. Golosowsky is
working earnestly to secure recog

forts are meeting with success.

. Two weeks ago today (Friday) the
Detroit Typothete forced the issue
with the local Typographical , Union
by placing non-union men in two or
three shops. Immediately the union
men walked out. Then the union
took up the gage and called out the
union men in every Typothete shop.
This was unexpected and it made the
Typothete sit up and take notice.
As a result shop after shop resumed
work on the "closed shop" plan and
under contract, and at this writing
