ARMSTRONG CLOTHING COMPANY
WOMEN UNIONISTS MEET.
National Trades Union League Hold
Three Big Meetings.
The Women's National Trades
Union League recently held simul
taneous meetings In New York, Bos
ton and Chicago. All meetings were
largely attended. The coming of the
lr.dustrlal women into the suffrage
tanks will greatly strengthen those
ranks, because the self-supporting
woman Is determined and because she
Is self-respecting. What women sad
ly need today is genuine self-respect.
They sit quietly by and hear, them
salves declared intellectually inferior.
They allow their own sons to speak
cf them as dependents.
At the New York meeting, Mary
Preier said, "Woman's entrance into
the industrial world is developing a
social conscience in women, as it has
done in men, and more and more of
us are seeing the vision without
which people perish as the prophet
has said." Rose Pastor Stokes de
clared, "If suffrage comes to women,
it will come through the working wo
men and not through the club wo
men." A woman suffrage resolution
The Chicago meeting was held at
Hull house. Delegates were there
from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Wis
consin, Minnesota and Missouri. This
division resolved to ask the Federal
Government to appoint a woman upon
the National Labor Bureau.
SHOULD BUT WILL IT?
' The use of Pinkerton detectives in
the Colorado . mining regions should
open the eyes of labor leaders. It
should have a tendency to make all
meetings of unions open to the public
and do away with the detestable, con
temptible detective, who, in the guise
of a union man, betrays hiB brethren
into the hands of the law, and that
by urging them on to violence, in or

cate. GOOD FOR HAYWOOD!,
Refuses a Big Bunch of Money to
Pose as a Dime Museum Freak.
Secretary Haywood has been of
fered $1,000 to speak twice daily for
a week at a Denver amusement re
sort, and he has indignantly refused
the offer. "I am not a dime museum
freak," declared Haywood. A lecture
bureau has offered him $10,000 for
one hundred lectures during the com
ing winter, and this legitimate offer
he has under consideration.
Haywood postponed his return to
Denver, thus preventing a big recep
tion from his friends, by remaining in
Suit Lake City until his old friend,
John H. Murphy, general counsel of
the Western Federation of Miners,
was able to travel. Murphy is in the
last stages of tuberculosis. Despite
his condition he insisted on appearing
with counsel during the trial, but
when it was ended he was unable to
return to Denver immediately. He
was compelled to stop for rest at Salt
Lake City, and Haywood remained by
"John remained by me when I was
In trouble, and I'll stay by John un
til he is able to get home." said Hay
wood. And so the Denver demonstra
tion was sidetracked. At Ogden a
big crowd gathered to greet Haywood,
but he refused to shake hands with
anybody until he saw his invalid wife
safely in a carriage, and had greeted
his aged mother, who was at the
depot to meet him. When wife and
mother were safely In the carriage
Haywood turned to his friends with
a smile, thrust out both hands and
said: "All right now, boys."
And that's Vliill" Haywood, the man

wouH make even Satan himself
blush. Haywood is making good
these days, and in doing so he is
making friends for himself and for
unionism. He is taking Murphy's ad
vice. As soo.i as he was released
from jail and had greeted his wife
and mother, Haywood hastened to the
bedside of Murphy, picked him up in
his strong arms and hugged him to
.his breast. Murphy, with tears of
Joy running down his face, put his
hand on Haywood's shoulder ani
"In your hour of vindication don":

Can you believe that men who talk

the horrible crimes charged against
them? It is unbelievable.
Glenn Williams Instantly Killed at
Western Newspaper Union..
Working a freight elevator without
orders and ignorant of its mechanic
ism, Glenn Williams, aged 14, was in
stantly killed at the Western News
paper Union building Monday morn
ing about 10 : 30. Young Williams was
employed the day before as office and
errand boy in the office. Manager
Julian insists that running the eleva
tor was not a part of the boy's duties.
Young Wiliams, it seems, stood on
the second floor and pulled the cable
that started the elevator upward. He
raised the gate and let it rest on his
shoulders while waiting for the plat
form to come up, and when it did the
gate held him until the platform
crushed his head like an eggshell
against the floor above. Death must
have been almost instantenous.
"Ted" Righter heard the unfortunate
lad give one scream and rushed to
the sctne. "Ted" managed to' stop
the elevator, but not until young Wil
liams wts dead. The poor boy's head
was literally crushed, and his brains
scattered upon the floor. Coroner
on all Boys'
Suits and Odd
Graham was notified and the body
was taken to Roberts' undertaking es
tablishment. An inquest was held in
Mr. Williams, father of the dead
boy, says Glenn was past fifteen years
old. "I did not know he was sup
posed to run an elevator or I certain
ly should not have let him taken the
"We have no elevator conductor,"
said Manager Julian. The pressmen
and the stockman are supposed to run
the elevator when it is necessary, and
they understand it thoroughly. The
elevator is equipped with automatic
gates and is as safe as an elevator
The coroner's jury relieved the
Western Newspaper Union manage
ment of all responsibility.
CAUSES OF SOCIAL EVIL
The "social evil" is with us to-day;
it was with us yesterday; we are told
it commenced many thousands of
years ago; we have every reason to
believe it will be with us when
Gabriel toots his horn. Unless we
remove the cause for it. When we
educate the people to know that poor
ly paid women cause it; the child
labor produces it; poorly paid work
men encourage it, then if it will ever
be removed. Until then the best
thing we can do is to confine it as
nearly as possible to a certain district
where policemen can keep it within
bounds. In the meanwhile, let's do
everything we can to keep children
ont of the workshops, and women,
when they must work, paid a decent
wage. Union Banner.
- The machinists have made a settle
ment with the American Cotton Pick
er Company, of Pittsburg where 40
men were called out last week. The
men at this plant were out about
three days when the officials of the
firm decided to accede to the terms
of the men. Another settlement will
probably be announced in a few days.

Evidently Too Busy to Send News
The union ,s .carpenters ofjj Lincoln';
must be a mighty busy lot these, days.
Not a news item from them for three
weeks. ' " : ' .. ' ' ,
At the meeting last .week the car
penters agreed that it was best not
to parade on Labor Day, and heartily
agreed upon a picnic. But when it
came to patronizing a resort that
could be reached only by paying four
fares on a non-union street car line.
they balked hard. The carpenters
are getting the label habit bad.
An ex-business agent of the Kansas
City Carpenters is laying brick in Ar
gentine. Ha3 he a card in the Brick
layers' union. " . : ,
. Kansas City Union took another
lurch forward at the last meeting,
thirteen candidates being initiated.
Seventy per cent of the mechanics in
one of the largest mills in the city
are now members of the union, and
the other 30 per cent "are, on the
. Fifteen members of the Brother
hood of Carpenters of Newark, N. J;,
were fined $100 . each by the union,
for not striking. - They refused to go
out on a recent strike when ordered,
and when the firm which employed
them settled its differences with the
union they were discharged.
CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
First August Meeting Will Be Held
Next Tuesday Evening.
The Central Labor Union will hold
its first August meeting next Tues
day evening, and owing to the near
approach of Labor Day it Is to be
hoped that every, delegate will make
it a point to ' be present. ' There is
a lot of business waiting for the at
tention of the central body. If, the
delegates would show up and take
some interest in the work it would
be possible to scon report the organ
ization of two or three new unions,
in the city. , '
Several of the unions have not
been represented ' for a long time,
some .haye , never ;been .represented,
and some have been represented but
once or twice during the last six
months.- This is-'not as it should be.
The meet Tuesday night should be one
of the largest held in recent months.
There is going to be an election of
officers in a few weeks, and the ac
credited delegates ought to be getting
in the habit of attending so they can,
select the best available material to
conduct the affairs "Of the body. :
A lot of people waste time in try
ing to cultivate a "love of the artis
tic" in the bosoms "of those who have
to sweat blood every day in order to
get enough to live on.
