Culled From .the , Pages of Post's 'Square Deal." "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 'Trades Unions. , 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 , Just Closed. 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 OF COURSE THEY HAVE. . ' 1 -; - , - ' , The railways have begun, a deter mined fight against the bill introduced in the United States senate by Senator , LaFollette penalizing ..railways'- and railway officials that let their employes work continuously more than sixteen . hours. Senators and representatives are being bombarded with literature presenting the railways side of the . case, and when public committee hear ings are given 'in -Washington delega tions of railway men from all parts . of the country wili be on hand to pre-., sent the 1 railroads' " views.-r-liincoln Journal.

More than. 5,000 'clgarmakers went on strike to day because of poor street car service w while a new bridge across the Hills borough river is being constructed.. All . employes of factories on the west side of the river proceeded to the city hall and made a"demonstration. A commit tee called upon the mayor and the. street car officials declaring that the men ' would not return to ; ferriage across the river and demanded car. service. The mayor immediately di rected that both demands be granted.' '. ' ELASTIC CURRENCY.' There Is a ntan in New York who can prove by his experience that we've just got to have an elastic currency No two ways about it. We must have, it. This man earns eight) dollars a week. His wife secured a divorce, and the court ordered him to pay her ten. dollars a week alimony. ; He Insists that Secretary Shaw provide a. cur rency elastic enough to make $8 pay. his. wife $10 and leave him enough to pay his board and washing. f GUESTS JUMP FOR LIVES.
