BOOSTING FOR BENNETT
All Advocates of Ithe Square Deal
Backing Hit Candidacy.
Unusual interest attaches to the
candidacy of John R. Bennett, who
Is a candidate before the republican
primaries (or the nomination as
county commissions!. The district
which Mr. Bennett seeks to represent
embraces the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth
wards and precinct B of the Second
ward, In the city of Lincoln. The
Interesting feature is. the attempt of
the Traction company interests to
"get even" with Mr. Bennett because
he has, as a member of the city
council, refused to grant any further
concessions to the Lincoln Traction
company. This opposition has been
so 'plain that every reader of the
morning Traction organ could see it.
All this is, or should be, quite enough
to induce every republican working
man in Mr. Bennett's district to vote
for him at the primaries.
But aside from this, Mr. Bennett
has other claims for support. He has
been a resident of Lancaster county
for man; yeare. He came to the coun
ty a young man and by economy man
aged to get together enough money

to buy a little farm. Later failing
health in the family forced him to
leave the farm and he came to Lin
coln. He bought a lunch housa near
the Burlington depot, worked night
and day, lost no opportunity to make
friends by leaving sjuslicd customers,
saved his money and invested it in
Lincoln property. Everp- dollar 'he
has was honestly made and has been
honestly used. Being a representative
citizen and an interested taxpayer, he
would make a good county commis
sioner. The Wageworker does not
know Mr. Bennett personally, but it
knows his record, and it is the kind
of a record that recommends its pos
sessor to the confidence of the peo
ple. His record during his short serv
ice in the council shows that the pos
session of a competency has not made
him feel above those who still have
to toil far a daily wage, and it fur
ther shows that he is in full sympa
thy with the principles of trades
unionism. The Wageworker believes
that the election of Mr. Bennett
would give the toilers a "friend in
CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
Short Meeting and For Lst Time In
the Old Hall.
The Central Labor Union met Tues
day evening at 1034 O street, but it
will not meet there again. It was
the last meeting in the old building.
When the building on the corner was
removed to make room for the new-
Little block, it sounded the death
knall of the old building in which the
central body has met so long, and
it has been condemned. The next
meeting ot the central body, which
occurs on Tuesday, September 10, will
be- held in Brush's hall. In the mean
time an effort will be made to secure
a regular rate for Carpenters' hall.
' Little business of importance came
before tha meeting. Charley Bowen,
proprietor of the Pioneer barber shop,
presented a grievance against the "ac
tion of the local barbers' union in ar
bitrarily raising the prices " to be
charged the public. The central body
of which Mr. Bowen was long a faith
ful member, listened to his grievance
but decided that it had no jurisdiction
in the premises, and could not have
until the local brought the matter- to
the body for adjudication. The mat
ter, however, brought to light the
fact that several of the boss barbers
had combined to force the open shop.
i ne tacts about this will be found
in the department devoted to the local
It was reported that all arrange
ments had been made for Labor Day,
and that there was every indication
that the celebration would be a suc
cess. Mr. Griffith, who Is largely i-
terested in the concessions at Capital
Beach, appeared before the meeting
to offer a proposition to hold the cele
bration at the Beach, but the central
body decided that it had no control
of the matter, and the. committeemen
present thought it best not to inter
fere with arrangements already made.
The announcement that the Citizens'
Street Railway Co. had donated $20
towards' defraying the expenses of the
celebration was greeted with' applause.
A RIGHTEOUS DECISION.
Union Scale of Wages the Just Basis
Elsewhere in this issue will be
found the portrait and platform of
Walter A. Leese, who is a candidate
before the republican primaries for
the nomination as county judge. In
this connection The Wageworker de
sires to recall a little fact in history,
wiiich will very plainly set forth 'Mr.
Leese's attitude towards organized
Some ten or eleven years ago, while
Mr. Leese was a justice of the peace
in Lincoln, a member of Lincoln Typo
graphical Union No. 209 brought suit
before him against a publishing cor
poration for wages earned. The de
fense was that the man had been
paid enough, but the plaintiff set
forth that he was a member of the
union and entitled to the union seal
of wages. The amount involved the
difference between the amount paid
and the union scale demanded was
less than $3.
Mr. Leese decided that the plaintiff
was entitled to recover, holding that
the union scale of .wages was the
"prevailing scale" and that in the ah
sence of any definite agreement as
to wages the union scale for that par
ticular craft should be paid. The
case was appealed to the district
court and the decision rendered by
Justice Leese was upheld.
This little bit of history should rec
ommend Mr. Leese to the union voters
of Lancaster county.
WESTERN SUPPLY COMPANY.
That Lincoln is assuming a fixed
and undeniable front rank position in
the commercial world is evidenced by
the numerous enterprises which have
during their few years of existence be
come unqualified successes. This
fact is especially true among the large
wholesale and manufacturing con
cerns. Every year adds to our now excel
lent railroad facilities and where a few
years ago for lack of these we could
not successfully compete with Omaha,
Sioux City and St. Joseph, we can
now meet them on an equal footing.
What 'has been accomplished along
this line has only been made possible
by the character of the men who have
had the growth and progress of Lin
coln in their 'hands. Their untiring
efforts have gained for them the rank
they now take. Out of the numer
ous examples which might be cited
there stands out a notable incident,
that of the Western Supply Company,
wholesalers of all kinds of plumbing
supplies. Only the insiders fully ap
preciate the relentless competition in
this line and this fact only adds more
credit to the men who have made thl3
what it is today. 1
From an unpretentious start in 1892
they have had a gradual but healthful
growth, reaching the high water mark,
the past year 'with sales of $300,000
to their credit.
They are at the present time rep
resented on the road by five sales
men, Mr. Fairman, F. E. Chapman, W.
L. Hunt, R. H. Ritch, and John Fees,
who cover their territory several times
