'VOX POPULI, VOX DEI."
Rev. Charles Stelzle Writes Eloquently
of the Men Who Do Things.
it has Ions been acknowledged thai
"the voice of the people Is the voice
of God." The undiscerntng may hour
In the people's voice only a great roar
of discontent, or the mutterings of the
misguided mass. But he who has un
derstanding will hear the "still, small
voice," which speaks ' the , will of
statesmen in every age who

have . accomplished the , things, which
have produced the greatest good for
all the people, got their inspiration
because they kept close to the masses.
Rarely does the vision come to the
man who spends all of his time in
the seclusion of the study. His touch
on life is so slight; and his under
standing of the needs of men so inade
quate, that his outlook extends1 only
to the-limits of his own life-and his
own narrow experience. It is only as
a man comes into contact with others
that his owulifc becomes larger and
fuller, and it is out of this . fullness
that he is enabled to speak concern
ing the greater problems of life.
No class of men have a broader
experience than the "common people"
no class knows quite so well what
it means to toil and to suffer and to
sacrifice. None have higher aspira
tions and none exhibit deeper conse
cration. It is because of this that
God speaks through men.
Sometimes their expression of God's
will is crude. Sometimes it comes as
a shock to men who have become ac
customed to things as they are, who,
quite satisfied with present conditions,
are unwilling to be made uncomfort
able by a change which may mean a
readjustment in their method of living
and in their way of doing business.
But to stand in the way of progress is
futile. It may be that it is necessary
to oppose certain features man-made
and man-inspired which have crept
into the plans which the people pre
sent, but back of them all and be
neath them all will be found the hand
This has been proven in history.
In every great fight for the right and
for progress, the leisured classes, the
so-called upper classes, have been on
the wrong side of the battle-field. The
common people the men of uncom
mon sense to these the world owes a
debt of gratitude.
If you would hear the voice of God,
keep close to the people.

right side of his face was burned
through to the skull. ' Before the body
could be touched the currents had
to be cut off below. The body was
viewed by Coroner Matthews as soon
as he was notified and then removed
to xan undertaking establishment. The
inquest was held Thursday morning
and the body taken to Boone, la., for
interment by a brother of the dead man
who came to Lincoln as soon as noti
fied. Zimbelman's home was in Boone,
la. A card in his pocket showed him
to be a member of the Knights of
Pythias, Boonsboro Lodge No. 324, of
Boone. He was also a beneficiary
member of the Electrical Workers.
. The local lodge held a special meet
ing Wednesday night and arranged to
: do its part in the last, services over
the body of the dead comrade. A
committee of two was appointed to
accompany the remains to, Boone.
John Whalen, who was killed at
Beatrice, was working at the top of a
30-foot poe, and by some acident
came in contact with a live wire. The
shock loosened his hold and he fell
to the sidewalk, breaking his neck
and smashing his head horribly. An
inquest was held Wednesday night
and the remains taken to York, Neb.,
j Thursday for interment. Whalen had
not been a member of the Brotherhood
! long enough to entitle him to benefits,
but the local will see to it that every
honor is paid to the dead comrade.

ELECTRICAL WORKERS LOSE TWO
Two Lincoln Linemen Meet Death on
the Same Day.
Charles Zimbclman and John Whel
an, both members of the Brotherhood
of Electrical Workers, Lincoln Local
No. 265, were killed last Wednesday.
Zimbelman was electrocuted at the
power house of the Lincoln Gas &
Electric Light Co., and Whelan was
dashed to his death from the top of
a 30-foot pole while working on the
Home Telephone Co.'s line at Be
atrice. Zimbelman was killed between 9 and
10 o'clock in the morning. The exact
time is not known as no one witnessed
the awful accident. He was alone in
the cupola of the power house en
gaged in cutting in some wire switches
when death came. When discovered
by a fellow workman Zimbelman was
lying face down on the floor, a live
wire grasped in each hand and his
head resting -on a third wire. Both
Called Meeting of Labor Temple Di
rectors Did Not Materialize.
The directors of the Labor Temple
Association were called to meet last
1 Monday night, but only two of the
dozen showed up. As a result no meet
' ing was held. Another effort will be
made to meet next Monday night at
Chaplain & Ryan's barber shop, on
North Twelfth street. It is very im
portant that the directors meet at
once, either to wind upthe affairs of
the association and acknowledge fail
ure, or arrange for the annual meet
ing and determine to push the work
to a successful conclusion.
The Union men of Lincoln ought to
be ashamed every time they pass
along N street between Fifteenth and
Fourteenth and see the magnificent
building erected by the efforts of a
lot of women. The Young Woman's
Christian Association building is a
monument to the hustling ability and
zeal of the young women of Lincoln.
Surely the 2,000 union men of this
community are not willing that . it
should be said of them that they are
not equal to a similar task.
Rumors of "Something Doing" Come
Down From Omaha.
There is a rumor afloat to the ef
fect that there is to be "something
doing" iu union printer circles in Om;
aha. For four years the situation in
the river 'metropolis has, been very
bad, and all efforts to improve them
have not availed. Rumor has. it that
the matter is to be taken out of the
hands of the executive committee and
placed in the hands of a special com
mittee, but rumor' does not reyeabany
of the names of the men to be ap
pointed on the committee. .. , ;H .-,
Bad luck attended the visit of the
American Federation of Labor . dele- j
gates to the Union Printer's Home at
Colorado Springs last week. Five hun
dred delegates went down on a special
train, but the day was cold and stormy
ind practically all of the program of
entertainment had to be abandoned.
X was intended to serve , dinner un
ler a big tent on the Home grounds,
jut the weather made this impossible.
The delegates' were served with lunch
n the Home dining rooms, but had to
e fed in relays standing up. .The
:our of Colorado Springs in autos and
carriages had to be abandoned. The
program of addresses was necessarily
jurtailed. But the visit will have the
'ntended effect. . The , visitors saw
enough to convince them - that the
Home proposition is a great success,
ind doubtless influence other trades
anions to follow the example set by
the Typographical Union. The Boston
convention of the I. T. U. appropriated
fl.OOO to defray the expenses of enter
taining the Federation delegates.'
