CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
The delegates to the Central Labor
I'nion are exporting to have a delegate
at the convention of the American
Federation of Labor which meets next
.month in Denver. The bentimeiu
seemed unanimous against -ippro print
ing the expense money lor this i.ur
pose and a committee was given
charge of the matter or raising the
fund from the bodies represented. This
has met with a large response, and a

President Kelsey has been absent
from the city for about a month, and
Vice President Quick has occupied the
chair. It is not known whether , Mr.
Kelsey has been apprised of his new
duty as delegate to Denver, but it is
hoped he will be on the job when the
A communication from the United
Garment Workers of America enclosed
a number of packets of court plaster
in celluloid ' cases whereon is adver
tised the Garment Workers' label.
The delegates are wise to the prac
tice of politicians of springing canard
just on the eve of election when the
time is too short for it to be refuted
before balloting time. To be to some
extent prepared for such roorback, the
central body, at its meeting Tuesday
renewed Its purpose of standing by
the political movement now on foot to
elect the friends and defeat the en
emies of those who toll. To that end
and to renew confidence in those
chosen to carry on the battle, the fol
lowing was adopted:
WHEREAS, we, the Central Labor
Union of Lincoln, state of Nebraska,
In meeting assembled, have considered
the situation in which the toilers of
, our country find themselves by deci
: sions of courts, and the failure of con
' gress to afford the necessary relief;
I WHF.REAS we have appealed to the
republican congress in vain to afford
the necessary relief for the protection,
restoration and defense of the natural
and inherent rights of the working peo
ple ard all our people; and
WHEREAS we appealed in vain to
the republican party convention to de
clare for the necessary restoration of
the rights to which the toilers are en
titled, rights which have been shorn
from our people by reason of the de
cision of the Supreme Court, which de
cided that the voluntary organizations
of the workers are illegal combinations
in restraint of trade, and come under
tho Sherman anti-trust law, and that
the republican party rejected and re
pudiated labor's urgent needs and in
sulted the great rank and file of the
toilers of our country; and
WHEREAS the same demands were
presented to the democratic party at
its convention and that that party em-
bod'ed in its platform' the demands
which labor presented and made la
labor's contention its own; and
i WHEREAS the republican party's
' candidate. Mr. Taft, has, in his letter
of acceptance and his speeches, accen
tuated his injunction record, and the
democratic candidate, Mr. Bryan, has
pbsi-irtely and unfaltering pledged
hlirself. if elected, to secure the rights
of the toilers to which they are so just
i WE, THEREFORE, in regular meet
ire cf the CeDtral Labor Union of the
city of Lincoln, state of Nebraska, re
iterate our declaration that though
as organized workers, we are neither
democratic nor republican, nor owe al
legiance to any political party whatso
ever, we yet reiterate and re-affirm
it to be our duty and the duty of all
workers and friends of human liberty
to stand faithfully by our friends and
elect them, oppose our enemies and de
feat them, whether they be candidates
for president, for congress, or other of
fices, whether executive, legislative, or
judicial, and we' pledge ourselves and
call upon the people of our city and
state to help carry into effect the
laudable and ennobling purposes for
which the toilers struggle and aspire.

( Governor Hoke Smith of Georgia,
who was in Lincoln last week, is edi
tor of the Atlanta Journal. It was a
non-union office when he bought it.
His first act after becoming proprie
tor was to senef'f or an organizer and
say: "I want this shop unionized
so I can deal with the men on an
equitable basis." The Journal has
been union ever since. "And I've nevr

Tuesday on his way home from a visit

FEDERAL COURTS SUPREME.
In this modern craze for settling la
bor disputes by injunction the inter
ests of property are declared to be
rights; the laboring men having no
property are thereby presumed to
have no rights. Where there is no
law the judges will "make" a law;
where there is no precedent they
make a precedent. No congress, par
liament or diet, no king, emperor or
czar in the civilized world today
would dare make such laws as the
rulings in labor injunction cases hand
ed out by the federal courts of tho
United States. Indianapolis Union.
