WHAT OUTSIDERS THINK.
When Margaret A. Haley spoke in
Lincoln last week, there were just
twenty anion men in the audience.
This, too, in spite ot the fact that
Miss Haley is one of the best known
trades unionists in America, a woman
or wonderful executive ability, an
crganixer who has accomplished won
ders, and an educator whose reputa
tion is as wide as the continent.
She spoke on a subject that is of
vital importance to every man who
works for wages, and who hopes to
brave tn hie efcildrea somethinsr that !
will make their lot easier and better
than their father's.
And there were just twenty mnioa
ntea in her audience.
Among the non-unionists present
was one of the best known lawyers
.a Lincoln, and lie listened to Miss
Haley with the deepest interest. A
day or two after the meeting he met
the editor of The Wageworker and
It is little short of a crime that
tLere were so few union men oat to
hear Miss Haley. TCnion men love to
c'aim that- their unionism stands for
more than better wages and shorter
hoars, and they grow indignant
v- hen non-unionists, especially their
opponents, insist that the wage and
the hours are all that unionists fight
for. But can you blame the average
nan who is not a trades unionist for
taking this view, when they see
every day just such, lack of interest
in things educational and uplifting
as Miss Haley's address? Had tha:
meeting at the Christian church been !
called by employers to discuss the
question of decreasing wages and
lengthening hours, the mere mention
cf it would have been heard by every
union man in Lincoln, and would
have been resented. But here came
woman with a message, a woman
who could explain why the children
of workingmen were being sold into
weal shops, kept in ignorance and
made to be competitors with their
elders in the industrial market. She
came to point out the remedy, to
show workingmen how they could bet
ter their children, better the educa
tional facilities offered to their chil
dren and meet the menace of the

TCnion men ought to ponder over
