Our Annual Message to IVorkingmen
We would have it understood that presidents and governors are not the only ones
who are privileged to write annual messages. While we address the union men of Lan
caster county every week through the columns of "The Wageworker," we seize this op
portunity to write our "Annual Message" to them.. Instead of sealing with questions
of tariffs, rebates, trusts, etc., we purpose sealing only with the questions of Finance and
FINANCE Several things are demanded by the thoughtful and economical Union
Man when he purchases wearing apparel. He has as much right to demand style, fit and
durability as the professional man and there are many reasons why he should secure
all of these.. First, he pays out money earned by the sweat of his face.. Second, because
his money comes hard he should get the most for it. . Third, he has as much right to be
well dressed as any other man. We believe that these things should be taken into con
sideration by those who seek to secure the trade of union men.. So, believing we act
upon our belief .
The successful merchant is the one who handles the goods demanded by the pub
lic, and sells them at right prices. . There can be no object in offering goods that the
public does not want. We cheerfully admit that we handle non-union clothing, but only
because a large proportion of our trade demands these particular brands. But we
handle and immense line of union made clothing, and we will gladly handle all that that
trade calls for. The amount of union made clothing sold depends largely upon the de
mand made for it by union men themselves. If they do not insist upon the label, who
But we want to impress upon your, minds this important fact : We will not handle
any make of clothing simply because it bears the union label. It must have other merits
among them being fit, style and durability, and price within reason. . It must be cloth
ing that we, as merchants jealous of our reputation, can recommend to our customers.
It must be able to back up what we say about it, and if we cannot say only good of it
-, we will not handle it. Frankly, all else being equal, we prefer to handle union made
goods. That is a purely business matter. On the square, We wish that all clothing man
ufacturers employed only members of the United Garment Workers of America. , It is
barely possible that union men are responsible in large measure for the facts that such is
not the case.
We desire in this connection, to say tbat we have an immense stock of union made
clothing. It is "right" in every particular, from fit to price. We take pleasure in sell
ing it, for we know it "makes good." It is the largest and best line of union made cloth
ing ever offered in Lincoln. It took us a long time to locate it, but the trouble has been
amply compensated. We sell you the clothing, not the label. It bears, in addition to
the label, the trade marke of Henry J. Brock & Co., of Buffalo, N. Y. Our fall and win
ter line will please you.
But we handle other union made goods. Let us call your attention to our line of
famous Elgin Shirts, "No Name" Hats and Carhart Work Clothes. These names not
only stand for union made products, but for the best goods in their lines.
Believing that the laborer is worthy of his hire, and that in union there is
strength, we want to see labor thoroughluy organized on right lines. In that lies the
hope of the toiler. We hope that Labor Day will be a thoroughly enjoyed holiday. To
all who toil for their daily bread at forge or furnace, in factory, shop "and mart, we send
our cordial greetings and our good will.
They deserve the best, for they have given the world's its best.
Given under our hand and seal this 30th day of August, A. D., 1907, and of our
independence the One Hundred and Thirty-first.

MISS ENID JACKSON.
Lincoln's Favorite Actress Inaugurates
Stellar Role at Oliver.
Miss Enid Jackson, the popular and
capable actress who has won her way
into the hearts of Lincoln theatre
goers, inaugurated her starring career
at the Oliver, presenting the drama,
"The Sweetest Girl in Dixie." It is
hard for a Lincolnite to call her "Miss
Jackson," for it is as Mrs. Jess Pulton
that she is known socially to a bost
of Lincoln friends. For four seasons
she has appeared at the Oliver in
summer stock under the management
of her husband, and she and the
whole company have become prime fa
vorites. For some time she has been
longing to escape the trying ordeal of
repertoire and has sought a good ve
hicle for her talents. She has un
doubtedly, found it in "The Sweetest
Girl in Dixie," for in it she has a
role that permits her to make a direct
appeal to the heart and at the same
time show her ability. The summer
stock season was closed with this
drama as a sort of "trying out," and
its reception proved that it was Just
what Mr. and Mrs. Fulton had .been
As stated, the regular season began
last Wednesday with a matinee and
night performance, and the Oliver was
racked to the limit on 'both occasions.
It was a splendid tribute to Mrs. Ful
ton and the company, and it must
have warmed the cookies of the
charming little woman's heart to see
the friendships displayed and the ap
preciation shown by the hundreds
who came out to see. her and wish
her God speed. If Mrs. Fulton, in
her starring tour, meets with a tithe
of the success that hundreds of Lin
coln people hope she will receive, she
will have no reason to complain.' The
company, while, not large, meets every
requirement of the play, and the stage
settings are particularly good. -The
Wageworker is glad to recommend the
play and the. players to the public.
After several nights in Nebraska cities
the company will make a short tour
of the northwest and then head for
the eastern circuit.
this subject is only considered when
a sale of property is actually made
and no doubt a careful examination
would show, 'errors in transfer and

The abstracting of the title can be
J-i.i- after a manner by any of the le
gii; profession, but practice is shown
many times disappointing. It is just
as easy to have this work done by a
confident man and so we can unhesi
tatingly recommend to our readers Mr.
Porter " Hedge, who conducts the Por
ter Hedge Abstracting Title company
with offices located in the Richards
Block. It is an old axiom "that a
stitch in time saves nine," and this
is good advice to follow.
