SOME GOOD ADVERTISEMENTS.
Culled From .the , Pages of Post's
"The Square . Deal" is the name of
a paper edited by Post, the1 union
buster. It is published ostensibly by
an ' association, but the association
merely pays the bills and Post adver
tises his product. It is an interesting
paper just the same. ' Some of the
advertisements are very enjoyable, and
they should " at the same time serve
as eye-openers to the union men of
the country. . For instance the "Joy
Detective Agency" uses a quarter of a
page to display the following:
"Joy Detective Agency. (Incorpor
ated.) Cleveland,, Ohio. Quick and
effective.- The handling of labor
troubles in all their phases a specialty.
We guard property during strikes, pro
vide necessary men to keep the plants
in operation, arrange board and lodg
ing, etc. Branches in' all parts of the
country. Write us for t references and
terms." ; . ' r " '
Waddell & Mason are more enter-.
prising for they take a whole page in
three colors to announce that they
are union busters from Busterviile.
Their advertisement is too long and
too big for reproduction, but we take
pleasure in giving them increased pub
licity by quoting from it They' are
located at 1133 Broadway, New York.
"Always on Duty," is their motto. "Ve
are not a detective agency. We are
successful. We get results," isv their
boastful claim. Then- they go on to
say : ' -"
r3 "Wo are not a detective agency, but
spesiaK: agents who act ; for corpora
tioi.'S and Manufacturers in the termin
ation of labor difficulties. We 3ecure
an1 furnieh non-union mechanics in
all trades and skilled labor in all
branches of industry, for service dur
ing titrikes, and establishing the open
shop. We also furnish special police
patrolmen, trained to their duties for
the protection of non-union workmen,
and security of property. We estab
lish, operate and maintain commissar
lea for the maintenance of non-union
workmen, performing special service
during strikes and lockouts." ;,
. All this ought to be very interesting
to union men. It enables them to
locate their' Hessian adversaries and
block any little game they frame up.
Wadded & Mason also have offices in
P'li'adelpliia and Baltimore.
ONE IN TWELVE.
No Such Proportion of Grafters in the
, Every now and then the dispatches
proclaim that some labor leader has
gone wrcng, either by betraying his
fellows or grafting on the public. Im
mediately the whole body of unionism
is condemned by thousands merely be
cause one union man has gone wrong.
Even some ministers join in the gen
eral denunciation. , '
But suppose you stop and think for
a minute. Take Lincoln as a typical
city of its size. Two, or perhaps three,
union men hav6 been caught in crook
ed work. Suppose we say a dozen,
just to make it a liberal estimate.
Twelve union men caught betraying
their fellows or grafting in the name
of unionism. . There are about , 2,500
union men in the city.. The proportion
would be six crooks to the thousand.
Heaven knows that is bad enough. But
just wait. Once there appeared 1 on
earth a man gifted with divinity. He
selected twelve men to assist Him in
the work in hand. One of the twelve
proved to be a traitor. Now, if the
Carpenter of Nazareth made a mistake -of
one in twelve shall He be denounc- ,
ed ' and the religion he founded -spurned
by men and women? Suppose
that organized labor, made up of falli
ble men, had made the same propor-
tion of mistakes right here in Lincoln.
We would have found eight crooks to
the hundred, eighty to the thousand.
or a total of 200 out Of the 2,500 union
men who have played traitor to their '
cause, betrayed their unions and dis- '
graced unionism by graft and trickery.
The truth is there has not been more "
than two or three. , ;
Ponder on this a little bit and then
admit, ; if you 'are honest, that the
trades union movement is honestly '
carried on by honest and sincere men
CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
Listens to Reports of the Labor Fair ,
The Central Labor Union meeting
Tuesday night was well attended. The -
principal business was listening to
partial reports on the , labor fair en
terprise.' The committees wereunable
to submit full reports' owing to the
fact that a number of outstanding t
tickets ,have not yet been reported.
But as nearly as can be estimated the
fair will net considerably over $200. In ,
this connection it must be remembered
that no donations for the fair were
solicited. ' The prizes ' offered in the .
various contests were paid for, and
local merchants were not asked to
donate ' anything. ' They were only
asked to erect booths. . Had the usual
plan of "pan-handling" been adopted!
the fair might have cleared more mon- '
ey, but an unpleasant feeling would
have been aroused. It was perhaps the
first "fair" on record where nothing; '
was donated. This fact is a source of
pride to the management. '
The Central Labor Union quickly '
settled the dish contest controversy, N
which resulted in a tie, by awarding a
set of dishes to each contestant, Mrs.
stone and Mrs. Bustard. This was
willingly done because' both of these ',
good, union 'women worked hard to
make the fair a success.' .
Steps were taken to sell the piano ,
owned by 'the central body, and Mr.
Rudy was continued as chairman of
the committee. .
' The matter of . organization of the
street railway employes was discussed
and a report made. "The matter will
be taken up by the organization com
mittee at once and pushed as hard as
possible. ' - ; V '-.?' '
. Under - the head , of "good of . the
order" several good talks were made
and the necessity of renewed activity
clearly pointed out. ' As a whole the
meeting was one of the best held by
the central body in' many months.' " 1
