WITH THREE WONDERFUL
WILTSE BREAKS INTO CLASS
Correct a Misunderstanding As to
Their Business. Representative.
The directors of the Labor Temple
Buildnig association met at the Com
mercial club rooms in the Fraternity
tuilding last Monday evening, and
managed to straighten out a li'ttla
snarl that at one time threatened to
become, a serious tangle. It was in
connection with the employment of a
business . representative. The unions
had been asked to pledge a certain
amount weekly to pr.ovide the fund
lor paying the business representa
tive, and some thought that this
money was to be represented by stock
issued, while others thought it was
to be a donation. After arguing the
Uiestion for a while it was finally
flecided to fssue stock in return for
cl! money subscribed.
It was decided to ask the Labo
Day committee to provide some sort
of a celebration that would result in
an addition to the temple fund; and
a committee was appointed for the
purpose of bringing the matter before
the attention of the committee.

New York Giant Southpaw Twirler
Pitches Ten Innings Without Al-
lowing a Safe Bingle Record of
No-Hit, No-Run Games In . Major
George Wiltse, the tall New York
Giant southpaw pitcher, broke into the
no-hit class of pitchers the other day
when the pitched a ten-inning, no-hit,
no-run game against the Philadelphia
Nationals. This is the second hitless
game of the season, and the fact that
t went ten innings is a record in it
self for major league performances.
During his career as a professional
baseball player, Denton M. (Cy)
Young has pitched three no-hit games,
and the title of "Grand Old Man of
Baseball" is rightfully his. Consider
ing the fact that Young's career in

E. W. Julian, who has been the
manager of the local branch of the

Oklahoma City branch., The Okla

a high tribute to his ability, but

George Foxworthy, who has been a
traveling representative of the West
ern Newspaper Union, has been
named as Mr. Julian's successor, and
this fact pleases not only the patrons
of the Lincoln branch, but is a source
of - rejoicing to a big bunch of old
time union printers who remember
"Foxy" as one of the best in the o'd
days. Mr. Foxworthy has been with
this concern a long time, and he
brings to his new duties a ripe ex
I rlence that will insure success.
ARMSTRONG'S BIG DEAL.
Becomes Owner of the Sterling Cloth
ing Company Stock.
One of the biggest commercial
transactions in Lincoln's history was
pulled off the other day when th
Armstrong Clothing company bought
iht stock, good will, fixtures and
lease of the Sterling Clothing com
t.any. The transaction involved a
matter of 'something like $75,000, and
it insures the Armstrong Clothing
company of a fine business site in
the event that Miller & Paine ask
for possession of the present Arm
strong site at the expiration of the
icase. As soon as possible the Sterl

"BRYAN THE MAN."
A Book by Lincoln Writers That is
Well Worth Read'rj;.
There have been biographies of
Bryan almost without number, but
the best "Bryan book" that has 'come
to the notice of this newspaper is

The introductory sets .forth the
tact that the book is written by men
who belong to the opposition party,
but who entertain only the highest
regard for the distinguished citizen
of whom they write. There is no ful
faome flattery, no attempt to picture
Mr. Bryan as immaculate, infallible
or wholly without faults. It is a
charming story that runs along in
narrative form, - and deals with the
many-sided nature of Mr. Bryan in a
wav that holds the interest of thf
reader from the very start. It is bet
ter than the biographies written by
1 artisan friends because it doss not
Every admirer of Lincoln's dis-
tingufshed citizen ought by all means
to aJd "Bryan the Man" to his li
brary. It will repay a careful reading
and it will be a source of delight
during many hours. Mr. Gale and
Mr. Kline have honored themselves
by their splendid little book, and
here's hoping that they will have to
print many an edition. The price
of the book is one dollar, and it may
be purchased at any book store, or

Fremont, Neb., July. 22. About
twenty union cigarmakers at H. G.
Breitenfeld's shop are out on a strike,
The strikers contend that they have
riot been receiving unon prices for
making a certain kind of cigar. Mr.
Frietenfeld claims that he has always
laid strictly union prices for all
work. He offered . to cease ' making
CARPENTERS IN POLITICS.
Ask Support for Dickson for Senate
and Urges Co-operation.
After carefully reviewing (he polit
ical situation the Carpenters' Union
has decided that it would be wisest
to center organized labor's support
upon one candidate for the legisla
ture. Having thus decided, they have
selected J. W. Dickson as the proper
man, and will ask organized labor to
back him for the senate. But if a
majority of unionists think that some
ether plan should be tried the car
penters will fall in line.
The delegates of the local were in
structed to outline the plan of the
local to the Central Labor Union and
seek to have it adopted. The matter
will be brought up at the meeting
of the central body next Tuesday

TO TEST BOYCOTT LAW.
The labor associations ' of Denver,
Colo., have decided to test the anti
boycott law of that state. The par
ticular feature of the law that is to
be tested is that section which de
clares that it is unlawful to prin
ana circulate a statement that any
individual or corporation is unfair to
labor. The test will be invited by
the publication and distribution of
circular giving the names of all
laundries in Denver that have been
proclaimed by labor bodies as unfair
to organized labor.

His recent no-hit, no-run game
against the Highlanders shows ' that
Young is still in the height of his
career and all the talk about his going
back is purely Invention.
But 27 New York batsmen faced
Young. He allowed one base on balls,
but the man who drew it was thrown
out attempting to steal. Young had
but three strikeouts' to his credit, but
his control was perfect, and the High
landers, although able to hit the ball,
were unable to land safely.
It was by only the narrowest sort
of a margin that Young missed

August 5, 1904, when, against the Phil
adelphia Athletics, be did not allow i
man to reach first base. This record,
shared by John M Ward, who in 1880,
when he was pitching for Providence,
performed the same feat on the Buf
falo team, is one 'of the most remark
able records of major league base
ball. When he was pitching against
the Athletics Young was by no means
a youngster in big league company, as
every one knows. He was then in his

IN THE LITERARY WORLD.
One of the really important events
of the literary world this season was
the appearance of Winston Churchill's!
new novel "Mr. Crewe's Career."!
In this work Mr. Churchill has more
than sustained his previous . well-'
earned reputation. It is dedicated
"To the men who In every state of
the union are engaged in the struggle
for purer politics." From this it Is
seen that the story deals with an In
tensely interesting topic, and it is a
vigorous, dramatic, entertaining re
cital of a subject in which every per
son Is concerned. The locale of the
story makes It a natural sequel to

A thrilling escape from New Or
leans, of a party of three, followed
by a series of - singular experiences
among a tribe of Indians, make up the
core of Randall Parrish's new ro
mance, "Prisoners of Chance," Just
published by A. C. McClurg Co.
Around this are woven the mystery
of the queen of the aborigines, a
woman with sunlit hair who bends the
savages to her slightest whim, the
plotting and counterplottings in the
French-Spanish city at the mouth of
the Mississippi, the dangers and fight
ing of the long journey up the river
with an eager enemy close behind,
the self-sacrifice and martyrdom of a
missionary, and the common sense
and presence of mind of an American
pioneer of the most robust type. The
result is a story filled with thrills
and excitements, in Mr. Parish's
most inventive vein.
A 'normous dog came in one day.
And he and I commenced to play;
And we had fun, and nice fun, too,
Long as he 'haved as a dog should do.
But when he got so awful rough
I hollered that I'd had enough.
But 'stead of stopping as he should,
As anybody'd think he would,
He knocked me down and tried to see
If he could sit on all of me.
