' The Fargo, S. D., Daily Argus has
a few things to say about the 8-hour
day and some good advice for country
printers who may think that the 8
hour strike offers them an opportu
nity. The Argus says:
"The movement of the Interna
tional ' Typographical union for the
8-hour day is beginning to loom up
in the northwest. Advertisements
are now appearing In a number of
newspapers for non-union printers to
report for duty in St. Paul and Minn
eapolis on October 1. Permanent pos
itions at good wages are offered. It
is apparent from these advertisements
that the employers- are planning , a
general" lockout in the Twin Cities as
it is not the desire of the local Ty
pographical unions to declare a strike
at that time. Laying the question
of justice in the demand for the 8
hour day aside, and considering only
the outcome of such a lockout, it will
be well for all non-union printers
to think twice, and even thrice, be
fore applying for any of the positions
advertised. It is a well-known fact,
conceded by employer and employe
alike, that the International Typo
graphical union is the most thorough
ly organized labor union in the world.
It has Ion gsinc epassed its Infant and
experimental stages, and its members,
by the very nature of their calling,
are the most intelligent in the ranks
of the wageworkers. It is the ambi
tion of most country printers, or print
ers in the small towns, to sometime
hold positions in the large printing
offices- in the cities. Many of these
are of the opinion that a strike or
lockout is their opportunity to gratify
their ambition. This might prove to
be the case in some instances, but in
the struggle which the union printers
are anticipating the case will be alto
gether different. For more than a
year definite plans have been put for
ward, and the printers have been
drilled and marshaled even as Oyama
has directed the Japanese soldiers in
their various campaigns, and when
the time comes for the conflict (if it
does come) the union printers of the
United States and Canada will be
found ready for the fray, and will
come off the field with flying colors,
and the non-union man will find that
not only his city position is lost, but
he will also find that the country
position which he left has been,
usurped by another. 'Look before you
the strike bound shops. The union
watchers take good care of that. And
in every bunch picked up by the agents
of the Typothetae there are several
good union men who put in good time
on the road toward Chicago. There
has been a demand for good printers
all over the country for a year or
more, and the claim that the Typothe
tae can supply the places of 6,000 or
8,000 union men is too ridiculous to
be given notice. It was the Typothe-
tae's intention to take the fight by
piecemeal, but the union soon blocked
that game. And instead of the skir
mish the Typothetae expected it is a
general engagement all along the line,
October 6 will see things in Omaha
unless matters are adjusted in the
meantime. The Wageworker is not
in touch with the Omaha situation,
but at this distance Tommy Klopp's
big talk sounds ' very much like ..the
whistle of the small boy who is com
pelled to pass the cemetery on a dark
The strike in Chicago is not general.
A number of good sized shops have
signed up, and the Typothetae has
lost several it depended upon.
The Wageworker asks pardon of H.
W. Smith. It omitted to state that
he was elected delegate from the Ty
pographical Union to' the C. L. U.,
and gave the name of the wrong man.

Painters and Decorators Lining Up for
Renewed Activity in Nebraska.
Third Vice President Rower of the
International Brotherhood of Painters,
Decorators and Paperhangers of Amer
ica, was in Lincoln a few hours last
week, looking over the local situation
and giving the boys some pointers.
Mr. Rower announces that the inter
national expects to do a lot of spe
cial work along the lines of organiza
tion in Nebraska this fall and winter.
He will return to Lincoln in a few
weeks and spend - some time here.
An effort will be made to arrange
an open meeting of the Central Labor
Union when Mr. Rower returns to
the city, and it is to be hoped that
he will be permitted to address a large
number of unionists.

The bricklayers have had an un

the men are now able to catch their

good building season, and the brick
layers have had all they could handle.
During the season, too, everything has
been amicable except in one or two
minor cases, and they were settled
without much trouble.

It looks good all over the country.
The obdurate Typothetae is trying to
seduce the country printers to coming
to town, but the country printer only
winks his eye and sticks to his case.
He knows that he is due for the throw
down from the Typothetae just as
soon as the Typothetae is through
with him. And he knows, too, that
the union will do him more good
than a "rat" Job could. Chicago,
where the big fight is on, looks good
from the union standpoint. The Ty

but only a small proportion of them
are printers, and the larger share of
