THE WIVES OF WORKINGMEN.
Noble Soul Who Deserve the Best
Things Afforded on Earth.
Amid the hurly-burly of labor troa
bles and the tribulations of the trusts
trie world has little time to recognize
the merit of those gentle souls who
are making the world better in the
humble walks of life.
' Among these the workingman'a
wife exerts an influence for good that
is more far-reaching than that of
presidents and kings and legislators
of captains of industry and philan
thropic millionaires and walking dele
gates. In her keeping are the characters
ct the future citizens and the wives
of the future citizens of the coun
try. From busy morn till weary night
she looks after the comfort of the
household cheerfully if she has half
a chance and with anxious care
strives to shield her sons and daugh
ters from evil influences and perfect
them in the ways of decent and hon
orable manhood and womanhood.
Siie has little time to worry about
facial wrinkles and the arrival of the
first gray hair. The vanity of woman
becomes in her a self-sacrificing pride

If she ever does wrong, loses con-"
trol of her temper or has a dash o
vinegar in her speech and actions the
chances are that the neglect of her
helpmeet is to blame. But even when
3he is soured by ill-usage and tha
cares of poverty beneath the surface
the current of womanly emotion st'll
runs pure and deep and strong.
In time hard conditions of life
may cause her to shrink from dis
closing the little vanities which soften
the radiant charm of womanhood as
the down softens the blush of the
poach. Yet a kind act, the merest

trifling bit of praise, may lure them
forth again to give the lie to the
wrinkles on the brow, the bitter word
arid the world-weary look.
The workiugman who has always
known these things, or, having for
gotten, has learned them again, is
blessed indeed. His lot may some
times be hard and he may feel that
he has good cause to envy those who
revel in luxury and yet he is con-

THE "I WILL" BRIGADE.
A Scheme That Unionists Every
where Should Quickly Follow.
The Garment Workers of Chicago
are sending out the following resolu
tion to union lien and women. If
you make up your mind to join "Do
It Now;" you can initiate yourself.
"I will" Chicago's motto; a good
motto for any city and an excellent
nvotto for all union men to follow.

to give the organized workers of the
state a better paper, entirely free

NOTE THE DIFFERENCE.
Before the advent of labor unions
men who were forced to work for
wasies were compelled to work, as the
old darkey expressed it, "from you
Kin to you kaint." Now in nearly all
mechanical trades the average is less
than nine hours a day, and the work
man gets more money for his eight
hours' work than he formerly got
for his "from you kin to you kaint."
THOUGHTS FOR LABOR DAY.
How the Forenoon May be Used to
the Advantage of Unionism. -
Monday, September 2, is Labor
Day. The day following is primary
day the day when we are allowed
to votefor the candidates we want
to see nominated for the various of
fices. Wouldn't it be well to spend
a portion of Labor Day in "nosin'
around" and ascertaining who are the
best candidates, viewed from the
standpoint of the union man? We
will not be working that day, and it
will give us time to discuss among
ourselves the availability of the men
who are asking us for our support.
Of course they are all our friends
now. They dearly love the working
man now. They are ready to shed
their blood In defense of the down
trodden laboring man now. But how
will it be after the nominations have
That is the point to consider. A
little less protesting now, and a lit
tie more action after while would
What we want is clean men in of
fice darn their politics! We want
men in there who will look after our
business and consider our interests
their political complexion be danged!
One political party is no better than
the other in its moral make-up. The
reason the "outs" are not grafting is
because the "ins" gobble all the op
portunities. The workingman who lets partisan
ship rule him ought to take some
thing to arouse his intellect. If we
could eliminate partisanship for about
a year we could solve the labor prob
lem. There are a lot of men asking for
political preferment this -year. Most
of them are republicans because Lan
caster county is overwhelmingly re
publican. What should be Ndone is
to pick out the best men in the lot
and vote for them not because they
are "good fellows," not because they
are "one of the boys," not because
they are good "jolliers" not because
of any of these things. But because
they are best fitted, and are really
and truly the friends of unionism.
We ought to have a lot of political
experience meetings on the street
corners on Labor Day. When organ
ized labor gets into politics and for
gets partianship it is going to cut
more ice than its enemies can haul
away, and don't you forget it.
