" STAGEHANDS ORGANIZE.
Get Together Without Flourish of
Trumpets '.and 'Organize a Local.
Lincoln has a new labor organiza-
tion, " the -Stagehands having decided
that it was time to get into the union
game. A few days ago the stagehands
employed at the three ;. local amuse
ment resorts, the Oliver, Lyric and
Bijou, met to the number of twenty
four and perfected a temporary organ
ization. Temporary , officers were
elected, dues were paid in', and a char
ter was sent for. 1 :s
As soon as the charter is received,
permanent organization will be per- '
fected. ' To the credit of the new or
ganization it may pp said that every
man eligible to membership was taken
in. . -
What the Trades Organizations Have
Done for Those Who Toil.
The Etalwart heroes of labor unions
have met and vanquished a vandal
horde of more dread foes than ever
Roman legions saw. With their union
shop and their label they press for
ward and conquer new evils with
every passing year. It was organized
labor that inaugurated child labor
laws and made those laws effective.
It Is organized labor who has demand
ed and compelled the introduction of
safety appliances on our railways and
in our shops. It Is they who demand
and are winning shorter hours of la
bor for the men upon whose steady
nerves depend the lives of tens of
thousands. It is they who have won
for the city of Chicago alone more
than half a million dollars a year in
taxes that were formerly evaded. It
is they who build cities without
sftims, who maintain sobriety without
coercion, who overthrow despotism
without war. In persistent, heroic,
self-sacrificing struggles for the wel
fare of humanity; in clean, temper
ate, orderly civic and individual life;
in fearless, faultless democratic edu
cation of the masses; in ardent, ef
ficient, ethical maintenance of eternal
truth, the labor union has shown itself
the greatest moral force of the pres
ent age. All of you who have the
genuine liberal American spirit of our
republic, the sense of common inter
ests and of individual rights as men,
prove it by joining the union of your
craft or calling, and do so with the
firm determination to stand by it
through thick and thin, always keep
ing in mind that "United, we stand;
divided, we fall." Houston Labor

Celebrate Their Seventh Anniversary
with Pomp and Circumstance.
The Union Leatherworkera on Horse
Goods celebrated the seventh anniver
sary of their local organization last
Tuesday, night, and the occasion was
a most enjoyable one. A regular meet

celebration and considerable import

After the business meeting the cele

The Wageworker was present by in
vitation and told a few stories and re
cited a few verses. Then ice cream
and cake came on and everyone pres

of the evening was spent in social in

led "by the committee in charge, and
the ' Leatherworkers fittingly celebrat
ed the anniversary of their local.
A DESERVED PROMOTION.
Mr. Ed. R, Butler, for several years
city passenger agent of the Northwest
em at this place, has just been pro
moted to be traveling passenger agent
of that road. The promotion of Mr.
Butler is deserved, for he is a thor
ough railroad man and has rendered
good service to the Northwestern

many friends are congratulating him,
and all of them expect to see him climb
still higher in the railroad world.
Son of Prominent Unionist Terribly
Hurt by Fourth of July Accident.
John, the 15-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. T. C. Kelsey, was terribly in
jured on the Fourth. He put a lot of
powder under a tin can and then went
closer to see why it had not made the
intended noise. Just before he touch
ed it the powder exploded and the can
was driven with terrific force, into.tlje
lad's face. The can cut a horrible
gash, injuring both eyes and cutting a

side of the legs at the place where they

There should be a little, narrow rim
nailed around the top of the table to
keep in the sand. Now provide a keg
of clean, dry sand and a little sand
shovel, and the children will do the
