The Union Objects to Competition
From Public Institution Bands.
- The delegates from tbe American
Musicians,, to the American Federa
tion of Labor convention at Denver,
asked tbe Federation to help in wip
ing out a source of unfair competition.
The following resolution " introduced
by the Musician delegates explains the
matter: , ,
"Whereas, It has become a custom
(or institutions, founded and conduct
ed for the purpose of caring for, rear
ing and educating children, to orga
nize In such Institutions bands of
'music composed of some of the In
mates, whose ages range from six to
fourteen years, ostensibly for educa
tional purposes, which is to be com
mended highly and altogether unob
jectionable; .but the, almost universal
rule is that as soon as these"-ChiIdren
are taught to be sufficiently proficient
to play a few tunes, the melody of
which may "be recognized, they are
at once placed in competition with
bands within these institutions to
purely educational purposes."
The committee on resolutions re
ported concurrence and on motion the
resolutions were unanimously adopted
by the convention.
CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
Meeting Next Tuesday Will
About Denver Convention.
The Central Labor Union will meet
in regular session at Bruce's hall next
Tuesday evening, and the session will
be made doubly Interesting by the
fact that Delegate Kelsey, who at
tended the American Federation of La
bor convention at Denver, will make a
report. Delegate Kelsey is the tlrst
delegate from the Lincoln body to at
tend a convention of the organization
for any length of time.- Three years
ago a delegate was sent to the Minne
apolis convention for the purpose of
inviting the convention of the follow
ing year to Lincoln, but he attended
only the one session necessary to sub
mit the Invitation.
The session will also be enlivened,
adults under conditions and tor retnun-j doubtless, by a little matter pertain-
Through them the representatives of
organized labor have been enabled to
express their views on all questions of
interest to the membership. Notwith
standing the efforts that have been
made to divert their attention from
questions of the gravest importance to
the general movement, they have re
mained faithful and have hewed to the
line, allowing the chips to fall where
they may. '
"With such a record it is not sur
prising that the efforts of labor editors
are becoming more and more appre
ciated by the great membership of or
ganized labor, and the desire to as
sist, in every way possible, the suc
cess of the bona fide labor papers has
materially increased during the past
eratlon that makes competition on the
part of the professional musicians im
possible, and on account of the novelty
of children endeavoring to play on instruments-
which are considered diffi
cult for adults , and demand the
strength and mature experience of
older persons, but more on account
of the much smaller remuneration re
quired to -employ- such' children,- they
are -often given the' preference while
- fathers of families are deprived of
such employment; and.
Whereas, The American Federation
of Labor recognizes the evils ot child
labor, however applied; therefore be
"Resolved, That the American Fed
ration of Labor, in Convention as
sembled, declare this form of child
labor most unfair, and all state and
central bodies are requested to assist
the American Federation of Musicians
in every' legitimate' manner in their
endeavor to eliminate this growing
evil, and thus confine such juvenile
ing to a political appointment or two,
In addition to these things there is
some routine business of importance
to attend to, and one or two special
matters of importance that demand in
mediate attention. Every accredited
delegate should make it a point to
be in attendance upon the meeting,
THE LABOR PRESS.
What President Gompers Says About
Its Usefulness in the Movement.
In his annual report to the Ameri
can Federation of Labor, President
Samuel Gompers had the following
good words for the labor papers of
"Too much can not be said in favor
of the labor press of this country. Just
before concluding my report I desire
to pay a tribute to tho yeoman serv
ice performed for the labor movement
by the labor papers of this country,
particularly the weekly papers en
dorsed by the central and state bodies
as an ice cream cone would In the in
fernal regions, and as for his knowl
edge of economics and labor conditions
generally, well, the least said the bet
ter. The conditions existing in the
longshoremen's organization are the
best evidence of Keefe's ability, or
rather lack of ability, as a labor leader

WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN.
Bryan's defeat does not mean the
overthrow of the , principles for. which
he stood. The principles survive and
his name as the great exponent of
those principles will endure in his
tory as one of the foremost Americans
of his time. Neither Clay nor Webster
could be elected to the presidency, but
their names will live forever, and so
shall Bryan's. Most of the presidents
of Clay and Webster's time are prac
tically forgotten. Duluth Labor
The New York courts hold that it is
unlawful confiscation for the state to
reduce the price a chartered company
may charge for- gas. But no judge
will make a similar ruling against the
increase of rents and prices or the
reduction of wages by corporations
and trusts. Duluth Labor World.
A PRE83 JOKE.
A press dispatch says, "D. J. Keefe
will lead the fight against President
Gompers." This is quite sufficient to
excite the risibilities of even a wood
en Indian. Keefe could not lead any
thing, unless it was a retreat, and he
has shown that he possesses unusual
abilities in that direction. Keefe cuts
about as much ice In the labor world

"The laws must be obeyed," pro
claims the president-elect. Of course,
just as they have been under the
present incumbent. They must be

BROKE A RIB.
, Rev. H. H. Harmon, pastor of the
First Christian church, is walking
around with one of his ribs in a sling,
so to speak.., As a result of the, ac
cident Rev. Mr. Harmon is not just
now engaging in . strenuous exercise
at the Y. M. C: A. "gym." A few days
ago he engaged in a game of basket
ball at the "gym," and wnila so en
gaged .collided with the elbow of an
opponent, with the result that one
of the clerical 'slats' was caved in.
The accident was a painful otte, but
barring a day or two's confinement
at home the popular minister's regular
work ws not much interfered with.
LOTS OF MONEY. !
. In his annual report to I'-e Ameri
can Federation of Labor convention at
Denver, Treasurer John B. Lennon
stated that during the fiscal year just
closed the total income of the Fed
eration was $207,655.23, and the total
expenditures $196,937.36. The fiscal
year began with a balance of $125,-
910.02 in the treasury. The fiscal year
just begun found the Federation with
$137,627.89 on hand. Mr. Lennon has
been treasurer of the Federation for
eighteen years, and during that time
has handled funds of the organization
to the amount of $1,782,943.19.
REASON TO BE PROUD.
Labor has no reason to be ashamed
of its part in the election, for all or
ganized centers voted strongly for
Bryan with the possible exception of
New York City, and Tammany fixed
that. No doubt, the scandalous "sell
out" of that organization will be
charged to the laboring men, as a mat
ter of fact, however, the labor- vote
was about all that Bryan got In that

SOUNDS SARCASTIC. V
President Roosevelt, besides having
been on the public payroll almost with
out interuption since 1884, has had an
income from his father's fortune of
from $10,000 to $40,000 per year. This
undoubtedly fits him to be in complete
sympathy with the working class,
whose income averages $437.50 per
year. Schenectady, N. Y., Leader.

White House." Samuel Gompers.
