HATTERS TO STRIKE.
Manufacturers Must Use Label in
Hats or Men Will Walk Out.
Tlilrty-flve thousand men who make
hats are In rebellion and a general
strike has been called for August 1.
The cause given is that the National
Hat Manufacturers' association at a
meeting held secretly at Newark, N. J.
voted to discontinue the use of the
union label In hats made by union
The members of the union made 30,
000,000 hats the past year. The way
they fixed the total was by the num
ber of union labels bought by the
manufacturers. The union has with
in the past five years become so
strong that the manufacturers decided
to do away with their members as
An officer of the United Hatters'
Union of North America, In speaking
of the action taken by the manufac
turers, said: "The union hatters will
never agree that the union label shall
be kept out of hats made by the mem
ters. It would mean the dlsintegra
tion of the union, as the label is our
foundation. If the manufacturers re
fuse to place the union labels In hats
made by union men after August 1
not a union man will make hats. That
is the answer to the National Hat
Conferences between the executive
committees of the union and the asso
ciation, held at the Broadway Central,
New York city, at which attempts
were made to settle the trouble, have
thus far been futile. The manufac
turers have asked for further time
and will make a final decision today
SAME OLD STORY.
Another Scheme to Bring Capital and
Labor Into Fellowship.
Last Wednesday's newspaper dis
patches brought the report from Al
bany of another scheme to "lift labor
ing men above their present condi
tion." On that day there was incor
porated a "Wage Earners' and Capital
Alliance," with a capital stock of $12,
000,000, the stockholders being main
ly wage earners.
Another pipe dream! It will never
bo done that way. Long before such
things "lift laboring men above their
present condition" some fellow will
have lifted himself over the moon by
There is just one way to do it, and
that way is to get together on elec
tion day. It won't cost a cent, either.

the political skates and forgetting
all about party-lines, they will come
into their own. But it is a waste of
time to organize stock companies for

How Dan Cupid Has to Work With the
Street Railway Men
The order of courtship is reverse-!
when a street car conductor or motor
man falls in love. He seldom his a
right off, and the little time he gi-b in
the morning has to be used for sleep.
As a result his sweetheart has to call
on him. And she visits him on the
official nights, Wednesday and Sunday,
while he is at work. On the Hadding
ton line there are several conductois
and motormen whose faithful sweet
hearts ride over the route with them
two and three night a week. It's
rather trying sometimes for a trolley
man to express his sentiment between
quarrels with cranky passengers, but
a smile from the girl in the corner
keeps him in good humor. Some of the
girls ride until the end of the last
run and are taken safely home by

Monday evening the Second Regi

remained seated. Good military musi

a proper respect, especially for a mili

guilty of a gross breach of the proprie

Ten Dollar Suit Sale
That Began Monday
Surpasses any price reducing we have ever made. The first day was a busy one, and we predict a
busy week, for we look upon this as the most satisfactory sale, from the standpoint of value
giving, we have yet held, for this reason : Not only is the price exceedingly low, but we confi
dently recommend every garment to be exactly as represented, for every one is of our own selection
and buying, and we know their intrinsic value. No man can afford to neglect going over his
clothing supply and provide for future as well as present needs, for it is not likely that such
values will be offered soon again.

OUR POLITICAL PROPHET.
We have a man in our town
Who is most wondrous wise.
His mission is to call men down
And harp and criticise.
In poetry this man does shine;
His lines are not so worse,
For he now has it down quite fine,
This thing of writing verse.
His wit has won him houndless fame,
In fact he has no peer;
The other writers are quite tame
Beside this pioneer.
A learned prophet is this man,
In politics, he's grunt;
And without tip or error, can
Name any candidate.
He does not stop at naming men
For his own party grand,
But points out democrats and then
He tells us where they'll land.
Says he, John Johnson is the man,
He'll make a good one too,
The others may as well disband.
They'll meet their "Waterloo."
And Bryan might about as well
Chase himself to Alaska,
Tut, tut, my friend, that sounds like
We'll "stand up for Nebraska."
And thus our prophet does contrive
To spend his time and wit;
He might do well to take a dive
And soak his head a bit.
Which act would gain him victory
And be a boon to him.
His wish would be fulfilled, for he'd
Be strictly in the swim.

A lot of self-constituted guardians of
the people are still framing up objec
tions to the child labor law and draw
ing awful pictures of the boys and
girls who are forced to grow up in
idleness. It is too bad, isn't it, that
some people are not allowed to grow
rich off child labor while men and
womf-n are forced to work for a star
a::on wage? These fellows wouldn't
give a rap about the future of the
ohilii if it were not for the fact that
they can hire boys so much cheaper
than men and get practically a man's
wrk from each boy.
Nebraska has taken an advanced
stani on the child labor question, and
this little labor newspaper purposes
doing its best to keep the state there,
even if some greedy employers are
ompelle.I to employ men and women
at f:.ir wages instead of employing
boyF and girls at a mere , pittance.
And '.vo are not throwing any fits of
fear iest the boys grow up in id'eness
because they are not forced to work
before their play time is well begun.
Of course the law works a hardship
now and then, but so do all laws that
ara really worth while. We could buy
clo.hing a lot cheaper were it not
for the protective tariff.

It is something out of the ordinary
for a ball player to make live hits
during any game, and especially in
that many times at bat. Many have
played all their lives and have not se
cured five hits in a game. Others are
satisfied to say: Well, I made five hits
off so and so at one time," and then
retire. But to make five hits twice in
one season, or to be exact, twice in
side of a month, is a record that few
will ever boast of. But Honus Wag
ner, "the Flying Dutchman," of the
Pirates, holds that record, and It is a
question if it has ever been beaten
not during the past 20 years at least,
the records will not produce them.
Wagner made his first five hits on
May 13, while Pittsburg was playing
at Boston, with Young, Dorner and
Boultes pitching. The big fellow
cracked out a trio of singles, a double
and home run,, total nine bases, while
his second quintet of hits was made
in Pittsburg against Stricklett, of
Brooklyn, when he hammered out
three singles, a double and triple, a
total of eight bases.
When it is taken into consideration
that but four players in the two major
leagues, three in the National and one
in the American, have made five hits
in a game, it can be seen that Wag
ner's record stands high.
In a game against Boston, with
Young, Pfeffer and Boultes pitching,
Seymour, the middle fielder of the
Giants, cracked out two triples, a
home run and two singles, making the
season's record for 12 bases.
Phil Lewis, the Pittsburg boy, who
covers short for Brooklyn, Is the other
player who has made five hits in a
game. This he accomplished against
McGinnity and Wiltse In New York
on June 3. Phil made a pair of singles,
the same number of doubles and one
triple, a total of nine bases.
The only other player in the major
leagues to accomplish this perform
ance is Stovall, of Cleveland, who on
the second day of the season, when
Cleveland met Detroit, the Naps' first
sacker cracked out five singles
against Willetts and Jones. .
Besides making five hits twice this
season, Wagner has also four hits to
his credit on May 26, when the Pitts
burg team was in St. Louis, against
Beebe, Karger and Brown pitching,
Wagner made three singles and a dou
ble, so that he not only leads the
country In five hits In a game, but he
has the distinction of being the only
player who has made four hits three
times. The nearest anyone comes to
the big German is Bates and Beau
mont, of Boston, who have each made
four hits twice; Lumley, of Brooklyn,
who has twice made a quartette of
hits, and Rhody Wallace, the Millvale
"Scott," of St. Louis, who has also hit
safely four times twice this season,

DISPUTE ABOUT THIS WHAT
EVER. Feruna is composed of the most
efficacious and universally used herbal
remedies for catarrh. Every ingredient
of Peruna has a reputation of its own
in the cure of some phase of catarrh.
Peruna brings to the home the tiUJl
BINED KNOWLEDGE OF SEVERAL
SCHOOLS OF MEDICINE in the treat
ment of catarrhal diseases; brings to
the home the scientific skill and knowl
edge of the modern pharmacist; and last
but not least, brings to the home the vast
and varied experience of Dr. Hartman,
in the use of catarrh remedies, and in the
treatment of catarrhal diseases.
The fact is, chronic catarrh is a dis
ease which is very prevalent, many
thousand people know they have
chronic catarrh. They have visited
doctors over and over again, and been
told that their case is one of chronio
catarrh. It may be of the nose, throat,
lungs, stomach or some other internal
organ. There is no doubt as to the na
ture of the disease. The only trouble
is the remedy. This doctor has tried to
cure them. That doctor has tried to
prescribe for them.
BUT THEY ALL FAILED TO
BRING ANY RELIEF.
Dr. Hartman's idea is that a catarrh
remedy can be made on a large scale,
as he is making it; that it can be made
honestly, of the purest drugs and of
the strictest uniformity. His idea is
that this remedy can be supplied direct
ly to the people, and no more be charged
for it than is necessary for the
handling of it
No other household remedy so uni
versally advertised carries upon the
label the principal active constituents,
showing that Peruna invites the full
inspection of the critics.

When Sandow Mertes broke into
the game he was recommended to the
Philadelphia people by Hulen, one of
the few left-handed shortstops the ma

frank enough to declare, one day out
at the Phillies' park, that he was not
fast enough to hold the job he had,
but he added:
"I know a player who will show

He referred to Mertes, and touted
him so highly that he was at once
brought on to Philadelphia. He was
a lamblike ball player at that time,
and one could not get a murmur out
of him. He afterward, though, made
up for it.
At any rate, in his modest period he
was at the bat one day, and Tim Hurst
was umpiring. Tim dearly loves to
tease a new man. Mertes had been so
unusually quiet that Tim called a
couple of wide ones, just to hear him
kick, but the fellow never made a

cherubic face, turned fiercely to
Mertes and said:
"Ah, what Is the matter with you?
Why, you are getting to be a worse
kicker than Elberfeld!"
Mertes nearly dropped with sur
prise, and he looked as if he were go
ing to weep as he replied:
"Why, upon my word and honor,
Mr. Hurst, I never opened my mouth!"
And then, when Tim roared with
laughter, the big fellow viciously
swung at the next one and drove it
out of bounds.

Poor Paint is Expensive
If one is rich enough to repaint his
buildings every year for the pleasure
of having a change of color scheme,
the quality of the paint used may cut
little figure. But if it is desirable to
cut the painting bills down to the least
amount possible per year, it is of the
utmost importance that the paint be
made of Pure White Lead and the
best of Linseed Oil. There are imita
tions in the form of alleged White
Lead, and there are substitutes in the
form of ready-prepared paints.
