Immediately after the conclusion of

cheers were given for the "next presi

"I have not yet been officially noti

Bryan, humorously, "but if you gen-
Uenien insist upon being so vociferous
I" am afraid I will not be surprised
when the committee officially notifies
me of my nomination."

Some Ugly Rumors Come Up from
New Orleans These Days. (
There are a lot of surface indica
tions to the effect that the printers
who are opposed to some of the
policies of the Lynch administration
vere handed a huge lemon when
Hudspeth of New Orleans was of
fered them as a candidate in oppo
sition to Lynch. ' " "
At the last regular meeting of the
New Orleans Typographical Union,
Hudspeth, who is president of th
local, was impeached and deposed.
The trouble began a long time ago
a iid has to do with the defalcation of
fromer Secretary-Treasurer Steven
son. Hudspeth is charged with "con
duct unbecoming a union man" and
with "neglect of duty."
Last April Stevenson disappeared
and an investigation showed that he
was short some $6,000. He and
Hudspeth, were great friends, and it
is claimed that Hudspeth should at
least have known that something
v. as wrong. The New Orleans local
appropriated a tidy sum to help Huds
leth in his campaign for the presi
dency of the International, and there
are vague bints that a goodly por
tion of this sum had been spent be
fore it was appropriated.
The Wageworker will attempt to
give its printer readers all the facts
as they develop. It is not yet quite
ready to apologive for having sup
ported Hudspeth, but if it "transpires
that he was the lemon that he is
charged with being. The Wage
worker's apologies will be forthcoming
earnest, heartfelt apologies. There
will be no apologies for having op
posed the re-election of Mr. Lynch
end Mr. Bramwood, but this much
should in justice be said Lynch and
bramwood having won out' The Wage
worker stands ready to assist them in
every way possible to boost the good
old I. T. U. to the limit.

Cheer op, Mary; Peaches are ripe, anal

cards and spades I get your spades of as)
but yo acan't always put up nice fruit,
because it isn't always looking" the gift
Jars in the mouth. What 1" mtrying to
tell you is to advise you not to have
any gift Jars, or cheap old style Jan. that
may put you to a lot of trouble in the
fall. Just eome and see the new Schiam
feehram automatic Jars, and let a ezpbUa
the improvement in Jarring things. Thea
you will rise and say. "Blessings on the
man who invented that Jar. even If be is
a homely old thing." A man can't be
pretty, and be an inventor, so don't ex
pect Mr. Schram to make good on the
line of beauty, but thank your stars be
didn't invent bloomers, or something you
wouldn't car for. I have to tell you m.
lot about fruit Jars this month, because
we have to sell a lot or .sea oat. It
beats all how hard times would be if we
didn't can her bluff, but cans or Jars, we
are ready for you.
