Under Which Flag, Mr. Union Man?
J. W. Van Cleave Says:
"The injunction's purpose is to head off injury for which, if
allowed to be committed, the victim can secure no adequate rem
edy by the courts. It is the promptness, the certaintly, and the justice
of the punishment in contempt cases which renders the injunction so
effective in preventing attacks on property and life. Jury trial would
bring delay and uncertainty. Thus it would give a license to vio
lence, voould make industry and property insecure, xoould increase
the number and the desiructiveness of tabor contests, and would assail
legitimate trade of all sorts.
"It is the duty of American business men, regardless of their
party, to bury Bryan and Bryanism under such an avalanche of
votes in 1908 that the work will not have to be done over again in
1912, or ever." Statement by J. W. Van Cleave, President National
Association of Manufacturers, and President of the Buck Stove Co.,
What Samuel Gompers Says:
"I am very well satisfied with the democratic platform as promul
gated at the Denver convention, and I will do everything to support
these declarations, and of course that means we will work for the elec
tion of the men who stand for our principles.
"I have never expected defeat in any undertaking, never hoped for
defeat, and never have given up fighting for an idea or principle that I
firmly believed to be right and just. I will always be found fighting
for what I believe is right, no matter what the temporary results may
be. I believe that in this fight we now have on hand, that we will win;
and I shall work for Mr. Bryan's election and for the ratification of the
principles that -we have advocated as officers and as an organization.
Statement by Samuel Gompers, President American Federation of
Labor, and now charged with contempt of court at the instigation of
J. W. Van Cleave.

THE CIGAR MAKERS.
A. Small Local Difficulty Speedily Set
tled With Satisfaction.
Organizer Dermody of the "Interna
tional Cigarmakers" Cnion was in Lin
coln last week, being called here to
settle a' little difficulty that has
cropped out in a local factory. The
matter was sjieedily arranged to the
satisfac-tiou of all. and then Mr. Der
mody spent a couple of days in boost
ing the blue label cigars among the
retailers of the city. He expects to
spend a couple of weeks in Nebraska
in the furtherance of an advertising
campaign outlined by the international
executive council, and will visit Has
tings. Grand Island, Beatrice. Fremont
and other places. One of his chief
concerns is the adjustment of a diffi
culty in Fremont, which has caused
The number of cigarmakers em
ployed in Uncoln is steadily increas
ing. The Pepperbnrg factory expects
to be running a full force of twenty
five men inside of a few weeks, and
the Cinberg factory is adding to
its forces right along. The cigarmak
ers are ready to lend their assistance
in making the proosed Home Indus
try exposition a success, and will
doubtless arrange to make an exhibit
of Lincoln made cigars. The cigar-
makers are always active in advertis
ing the blue label.
Right here it may be stated that
if a lot of men who are forever prat
ing about their desire to bnild np
Lincoln indnstries will only demand
Lincoln made cigars and accept no
other, it wouldn't be long ere there
would be triple the number of Lin
coln cigarmakers at work.
THE GARMENT WORKERS.

at Organizing Lincoln Workers.
While S. J. Stearns of the United
Garment Workers' International Cnion
was in Lincoln last week he investi
gated local conditions and .- informed
The Wageworker that be thought the
time ripe for undertaking the organi
zation of a local union of the craft in
this city. Mr. Stearns will return to
headquarters in Chicago in a few
weeks and will then take up the mat

and recommend that a local orgaavnwr
be sent here at once.

organization woo Id not only imprnt

THE LABOR PAPER GAME.
A labor movement without a fair la
bor paper is a mighty poor aowtst
And the great trouble with most bfcor
paper men is that they are expected:
to give to the unions every m
their waking time, and for the nioo
to contribute nothing exrept a kirk
when some fool thinks be knows v
a labor paper should be conducted.
