Time to Drop Hayes and Berger From
At the convention of the American
Federation ; of Labor at Pittsburg last
week, Victor L. Berger, a representa
tive of the International Typographical
Union, asked to be recorded as voting
in the negative on the unanimous
re-election of President Gompers.
Thi3 is the second time Mr. Berger
has done this. He "went on record"
at San Francisco last year, and if the.
I. T. U. should re-elect him next May
he would do so again, for Mr. Berger
is consistent in bis love for socialism
and his hate for anyone who has the
courage to combat the theory that a
number of very able men endeavor to
foist each year before the A. F. of L.
If there was a time when the I. T. U.
should feel grateful to the A. F. of L.
it is the present, while the struggle for
the eight-hour day is on. And a con
vention . that has extended aicl and
moral support deserves. ; nothing but
well wishes from the I. T...U,. But
what cares Berger for all .this. ' He
gets in the limelight, and if the cause
of socialism is allowed a brief spell
during the discussion of the questions
coming before the convention he is
satisfied. He have had enough of the
Berger and Max Hayes type of repre
sentatives. Let us weigh our social
istic .trade union friends next May
and find how much they assay social
ism with pure trades unionism, and
grade them accordingly. Washington

Lincoln Comrades Preparing to Hold
Some Interesting Meetings.
The socialists of Lincoln are pre
paring to begin an active campaign in
the interests of socialism, and to that
end have secured the services of D.
Burgess, of Seattle, Washington, who
will make three addreses in this city.
On Friday evening he apoke in A. O.
U. W. hall, ana Saturday evening and
Sunday evening, December 9 and 10,
he will speak in Richard's hall, 1034 O
street. These meetings are free and
the general public is cordially invited
. Mr. Burgess is prominent in the so
cialist propaganda and is said to be
a speaker of unusual ability.
The Butterick Publishing Co., of
New York, with agents in several
large cities, has voluntarily broken an
agreement .with -Tyographical .Union
No. 6, and discharged their printers,
etereotypers and electrotypers, photo
engravers, etc., and engaged non-union
men in their places. The agreemet did
not expire until January 1, 1906, and
this breach of faith on the part of
the Butterick company' is absolutely
without justification, and is being
brought to the attention of the 2,

A Smooth Scheme to Defeat the Cor
The Machinists' strike in Chicago,
which involved more than 1,200 men,
has been brought to a close. During
the eighteen months of the strike only
tventy-flve men deserted. Four hun
dred men were arrested for various
causes. Ten injunctions were issued,
162 men arrested and only one man
convicted. . The other 161 were dis
charged absolutely. The machinists
adopted the most novel step so far in
troduced into labor circles for defeat
ing injunctions. After they were re
strained from picketing the laboring
men sent out "solicitors," under con
tract, with authorization to Induce men
to join the union. These "solicitors"
were paid $7 per week, the amount of
the strike benefit. These men report
ed to a "superintendent," who was the
walking delegate, and this ''superin
tendent," in turn, reported to a "gen
eral superintendent," who was the
captain of the picket line. The con
tracts with the men were printed and
defeated the prosecutions in the
courts in the injunction contests. The
men declare that the main objects for
which the strike was declared have
been secured, as none of the employers
are attempting to, enforce the rule! to
have one man run two or more ma
chines. Thus ends another one of the
hardest fought battles in American in
dustrial history. Machinists' Journal.
MINERS VERY INSISTENT.
Four Definite Demands Likely to Be
Made in April.
It is feared in United Mine Workers'
circles in the anthracite field that
President John Mitchell's nervous
breakdown may prevent his attendance
at the tri-district convention which
opens at Shamokin on December 14 to
formulate demands on the operators
at the expiration of the present agree
ment next April. - i
. The majority of the 700 delegates
who will compose the convention have
been chosen without instructions as
to how they shall vote, but there is
an overwhelming sentiment among
them for recognition of the union, an
eight-hour work day, adoption of the
check-off system and a joint contract,
such as exists' in the principal bitumi
nous region, for one year.
To enforce these demands in the
event of their adoption by the conven
tion the union has a $1,000,000 treas
ury fund and a stronger organization
than in the 1902 strike.
EXAMPLE OF LITTLENESS.
What a Labor Exchange Thinks of a
' An example of corporation littleness
comes from Lincoln, Nebr. . Recently
The Wageworker of that city exposed
the methods of a shirt and overall fac
tory which was pompously opened with
prayer, but which pays disgracefully
low wages to the women in its employ.
The Wageworker published the facsim
ile of a check for $2.43 which had
been paid to a young lady for a week's
work. The check was obtained from
a third party who had cashed it and
the young lady in whose favor it was
drawn had' nothing to do with its pub
lication, but the superintendent, learn
ing from the pay roll who had drawn
the princely sum of $2.42 ton a week's
work, promptly discharged her,.
This man belongs to the class who
denounce organized labor as brutal,
vicious and violent. Streator Trades

An Estimate That Deserves the Con
. sideration of All. , ;
The serious results of the importa
tion of negro strike breakers during
the recent strike of teamsters has al
ready begun to manifest itself, as pre
dicted at the time. Crime on the part
of the colored men has increased at a
startling rate, and to such an extent
that the officers of the law are serious
ly alarmed. Never in the history of
the Cook county jail have so many
negroes been confined there at one
time as at the present period, and if
they continue to arrive at the present
rate the jail" will be filled to its ca
pacity with colored prisoners. A ma
jority of the negroes are illiterate and
were imported from the South. .. When
the' strike was declared off they were
unable to get other employment. ' As
a ' result they turned to crime, and
most of the prisoners are charged with
robbery, burglary, assault and some of
them with murder. The. entire 'sec
ond tier of the jail has to be set apart
for the use of the negroes, and every
cell is occupied with two prisoners.
The negroes have been arriving at the
jail on an average of five a day of late.
The situation is certain to become
more serious with the approach of cold
weather, as hundreds of the negroes
are still in Chicago without perma
nent homes, and with little or no hope
o employment. Chicago American.
