This is something that should and will
interest the mothers. School begins in a
couple of weeks, and the question of school
clothes is a pertinent one. Here is the way
we answer it: : : : : : :
Absolutely no reservation. Your choice of all our Boys'
and Children's Suits and Odd Pants at exactly Half

school and play at a ridiculously low figure.

AMONG THE CARPENTERS.
Work Plentiful and the Local Union
Growing In Numbers.
The Carpenter Union of Lincoln Is
progressing along social and material
lines at a rate that is most gratify
ing to the membership. Six new
members have been added within the
last ten days, and several applicants
are waiting for action. And as for
work .there's nothing . but . work.
There is no rest for the union car
penter who is looking for a job. And
if ha doesn't want a job he has to
do a mighty good stunt of dodging.
Business Agent Bly has more re
quests for men than he can supply,
and the demand seems to be growing
greater all the time. By the way,
Business Agent Bly has fully recov
ered from his recent tussle with a
case of sciatic rheumatism, in which
he came oft victor, and is now burn
ing the grass in bis speed getting
over the city.
Louis Faulhaber has about com
pleted the work of the Free Press
building, and of course it was union
work. The Free Press demands that
Rind, and Faulhaber wouldn't do any
The work of remodeling the Bijou
theatre is being pushed to . the limit,
and the work is union throughout.
Manager Gorman stipulated that in
the contract To show how Manager
Gorman stood, he extended the con
tract two weeks, thus postponing the
opening of the Bijou season that
length of time, rather than have non
union men on the job, union men not
being immediately available. The
carpenters and all other unionists will
not forget this.
Contractor Tom Harrison is build
ing a handsome residence for Mayor
Brown. Any job that Tom Harrison
handles is a union job.
Contractor Harry Dobbs has sev
eral big contracts under way, all of
Sehrank & Gertzenberger have con
tracts for two fine residences near
Twenty-second and A streets. These
Jobs started off non-union, but the
business agent got busy. As a result
five non-unionists were displaced by
five union men last Tuesday morn
ing, the contractors readily signing
up with the union.
Local No. 9, Brotherhood of Car
penters and Joiqers, of , Buffalo, N.
Y., is anxiously seeking the where
abouts of H. A. Burdick, formerly
treasurer of the body. Burdick dis
appeared last week, and with him
went $4,000 of the union's money.
Burdick has covered his tracks well,
and it seems that for months his
peculations have been going on. It
was only when he twice failed to
show up for an investigation of his
books that suspicion was aroused and
a diligent investigation made. By
that time Burdick and his wife were
gone. The local offers a reward of
$100 for his arrest. He was bonded
in the sum of $1,000 and the bond
ing company will exert every effort
to capture him.
Larnard, Carter & Co., manufactur
ers of overalls at Reading, Pa., re
cently let a contract for a big addi
tion to their factory- The contractor
attempted to "ring In" a lot of non
union men, but when the firm learned
of it the contractor received a Jolt.
He was compelled to put union men
only at work. The firm employs only
union garment workers and is glad
surprising, therefore, that ' the judge
has more applications than he can

filled in the order of their receipt."
BAER FOR DISTRICT CLERK.
J. S. Baer is making ; excellent
progress in his campaign for the re
publican nomination for. clerk of the
district court. In view of the fact
that no union man is a candidate for
this office it behooves union men to
carefully weigh the claims irf the met
who are candidates. Mt. Baer is not
a union man to the extent of carrying'
card for the simple reason that he
is not a craftsman. That he comes
of union stock is evidenced by -the
fact that he has a brother who is a
union carpenter, and by the further
fact that he has never lost an op
portunity to . show his 'belief in the
principles of unionism. His experi
ence, as a deputy in the office has
fitted him to become an efficient "
chief, and his record is n that com
mends him to the voters.
Unanimously and with, great enthu
siasm the Omaha Central Labor
Union has violated a precedent and
has endorsed the candidacy of Tony
Donahue, republican candidate for the
nomination for sheriff. The Omaha
boys could not do better than to turn
out on primary day and- make Tony
Donahue the t nominee, and then ! f ofc
low it up on election day by giving
him the office. He has been a tire
less .worker in the ranks of 'unionism--ever

were holes in the ground. He ft

he will do the right thing or bust

BUSTED. OF COURSE.
Of course the telegraphers', strike
is busted to hear . the Western
Union moguls tell it. But perhaps
you have noticed right here . in Lin
coln that we are not getting the base
ball scores by innings any more. An
hour or two after the game, just as
soon as the telephone can be secured,
the total Tesult is 'phoned in, but
not a - word by telegraph. . But of
course the strike is broken and the
Western Union is handling its busi
ness just as if nothing had happened.
Just the same, it's funny we can't
get the baseball scores by innings.
THE LABOR PRESS.
If the fight we are now making
had been started five years' ago, every
trackman in the United tSates would
be getting at the very least, $2 per
day. We are a little late in starting,
but will make up for lost time by
keeping things red hot. The Track-
The purpose to increase wages
nromnis wage earners to organize
The purpose to maintain a low stand
ard of wages to wage earners prompts
employers to oppose labor organiza
tions. The Broom Maker.
Keeping everlastingly at it is what
wins. The same is true with any
label agitation. . In order ' that the'
label may become a factor it will be
necessary for the members to keep
everlastingly pounding away in their
efforts to boom union made articles.
Kansas City Labor Herald.
What is an "open shop?" It used
to be a shop where both union and
non-union workers were employed
Now it is a shop that wants union
workers, but can't 'get them, so he
takes any kind that can't work in any
other shop. Erie Labor Journal.
A man's religion cannot be worth
much when he has to consult a law
yer to know whether he is' doing
right. Springfield Tradesman.
"You cannot stand still," says this
big world, "while I go round." If you
stop, you will be left behind and are
lost. So, as "Forward" is the word,
move, and move something as you
move, and don't forget the union
label. Baltimore Labor Leader.
JUDGE RECRUITS "SCABS."
Police Judge Helps Out the Opponents
of Trades Unions.
Judge Stewart of Toledo, O., has
transformed his police court into a
recruiting agency for supplying cheap
labor to the manufacturers and con
tractors of that city. According to
the "Blade" of that city manufacturers
have their applications in the court
and call on the judge frequently for
hlp. ' '
Last week a bricklayer was hauled
before the court and on making known
his trade the judge calmly consulted
his register of applications and then
gave the man the alternative of a sen
tence to the city stone yard or layin;
brick at $2.50 per day. This, of course,
is about half the union rate. It is not

LABOR DAY EDITION.
The Wageworker is going to come
but in Labor Day guise next 'week,
and if something doesn't happen to
prevent it, it will be a "crackerjack."
In addition to the usual grist of local
union stuff It will contain some goo i
general stuff, and will be well filled
with advertising offered by those who
want the trade of union men badly
enough to ask for it. The merchant
who does not invite union men to
his store is not deserving of the
patronage of union men., '

STRANGE, ISNT IT? '
"The Man on ' the Back Seat" says
in ; Buffalo Progress: "A peculiarity
of automobile accidents is the fre
quency with which some other -man's
wife is picked out of the wreck."
Which being interpreted means that
If a man has his own wife with him
he . pays more attention to the ma
chine, eh? Minneapolis Union.
The delegates to the Carpenters'
district council, of Worcester, Mass.,
are not the least bit superstitious.
This is proved by the re-election of
one, Jonah, as business agent They
do say, too, that although he's a
whale as a business agent, hfs re
ports never have the least tinge of
fishiness. Minneapolis Union.
