Mitchell Will Declare for Labor Even
Though in Prison.
"I can speak louder in jail than
from here. I am going to exercise the
right to speak or write when I come
out, and believe I will be held to a
rigid responsibility. Liberty, I be
lieve, is not safe in the hands of one
man. There should have been a jury
trial in my case."
The above declaration was made by
John Mitchell, vice president of the
American Federation of Labor, who,
with other officers of the Federation,
was sentenced by Judge Wright for
contempt of court, in a speech at a
smoker of the Telegraphers Aid .so
ciety in New York city last Friday
night. In the course of his remarks,
he said :
"I beli-eve the members of our ju
diciary are, as a. rule, above the aver
age in intelligence,' Integrity and hon
esty, but they are humani and, like
all human beings, liable to err.
"The corporations pay for the very
best lawyers, and it may be that a
lawyer, ater a long service with cor
porations, may become prejudiced in
taking their views.
"I don't want to go to prison" and
will chafe as much as any man at
the restraint, but if the higher courts
decide that I will have to go there I
ill go to defend what I consider to
be my constitutional rights.
"If a man murders his mother or
commits the most unspeakable crime,
he is arrested and has a jury trial.
His accusers have to face him and
prejudice Is disallowed. . Yet in the
case of myself, with Gomners and
Morrison, there is no trial."
ith which he confessed to have had
indirect connection in Russia was a
political crime, took the first step
toward becoming an American citizen
last' Monday in Chicago. Accom
panied by two friends, he went to .
the office of the clerk of the circuit
court and swore out his first papers.
While in Clerk Bidwell's office : be
made a short speech in his mother
tongue, which was translated by one
of his companions as an expression .
of thanks to the newspapers and his
friends for their interest in his behalf.
A Few News Notes of the Boys With
the White Vests.
The bartenders have co-operated
with their employers in a measure
that promises to relieve both of many
disagreeable incidents. The habitual
ldunger, the man who has been
burred, and the minors who look
like men of twenty-one, will hereafter
be up against It. When a minor
tries to fool the bartender and is
caught In the act he is turned over
to Fred Krone, and Fred proceeds to
make the minor's "phiz" familiar to
very saloonman in the city. His
parents are also notified, if he has
any. Heretofore when a man's wife
has issued orders that no more liquor
must be sold to her husband, It was
impossible for every bartender, to
accurately place the man. In this
v- ay it was easy for the man to evadfe
the rules, and thus subject the saloon
man to danger of losing his license,
although his bartender might be inno
cent so far as knowledge or Intent
was concerned. Now Krone Is noti
fied and he proceeds to make the
barred man known to every man la
The new man has been in opera

ficlal results are already being felt.

The "7 to 7" bill as applying to the
whole state has been given its quietus

An antl-treating bill has been recom
mended for passage in the lower
house. It prohibits treating, and tin
penalty rests alike on the man who
treats and the man who sells. A fina
is provided for the first and seeon-i
offense, but the third offense works
a forfeiture of the license.
Five saloons have been closed in
Hastings by a decision of the su
preme court. As nearly as a layman
can understand the legal phraseology
the saloons were closed because the
licenses were issued by a majority of
one in the council, the one being the
vote of a man who had signed the
Will Hold Open Meeting and Listen
to Some Eloquent Speakers.
Carpenters' Union No. 1055 will hoH
an open meeting at Bohanon's hall,
209 South Tenth street, next Monday
evening. All non-union carpenters are
cordially invited to attend, and they
will be welcomed. Senator John M.
Tanner of South Omaha has been
invited to be one of the speakers, and
if he accepts those who hear him will
enjoy a rich treat. Senator Tanner,
who is best known among his friends
as "Doc," is eloquent and witty, and
is a warm friend of trades unionism.
He was for many years a member of
Omaha Typographical Union, and is
today an employing printer who in
sists on "card men." The Wage-
worker sincerely hopes that "Doc"
Tanner will accept the invitation.
The daily papers Sunday and Monday
will contain notices of the meeting.

There are a lot of carpenters ia
Lincoln working for from 25 to 27'zi
cents an hour who ought to be get
ting 35 and 40 cents.. The reason they
are not getting it Is that they ars
unwilling to suirender what they are
pleased to call their "personal liberty."
In other words, they would rather
work for $2.50 a day of ten hours
than work for $2.75 and $3 a day of
eight hours by giving up a few
"rights" in the interests of their fel
lows as well as themselves.
SOCIALISM AND THE CHURCH.
THE PLACE TO BUY

Rev. Charles Stelzle Talks About Divi
sion in Socialistic Ranks.
The church tannot accept and advo
cate socialism because even the social
ists are not agreed among themselves
to just what they want nor how
their plans will work out. It is true
that they have adopted a platform of
principles or rather they have indi
cated a series of objects which ar
to be attained, but when it comes to
the method whereby this most' d
sirable situation is to be brougnt
about, there is not quite the unanimity
of agreement which one would expect
to find in a perfect social system
Very frequently I have had the ex
perience in presenting to one socialist
the views advocated by another, o
having him say to me: "That man
doesn't know what socialism is. I will
tell you what socialism stands for, and
how it is to be brought into existence."
If there is this variety of opinions
among the socialists, how can they ex
pect the church to adopt their eco
nomic system until they know more
definitely as a body what they desire
the church to advocate. As will be, in
dicated later, the church already
stands for the most desirable things,
advocated by the socialists. It has
been only too true that there have
been divisions in the church and there
are still many such divisions too
many of them but the tendency to
day is all in the opposite direction
The churches are getting closer to
gether as was manifested by the re
cent meeting in Philadelphia of the
Federated Council of the Churches of
Christ in America which represented
thirty-three denominations and nearly
20,000,000 members. By adopting a
social system and an economic pro
gram which would not be satisfactory
to large numbers who are both insid'
and outside of the church, there would
again be brought about a serious split
in the church more grievous than
ever before, and instead of there b
ing thirty-three denominations, ther
would probably be at least twice as
many. If the church has learned any
thing in recent times, it has been the
foolishness of division and it does not
propose to adopt any economic system
which will unquestionably again rend
the church in pieces. The church has
made mistakes, but here is a mistak
it would be folly to repeat. '
New York Judge Hands Oraanized
Labor Some More Citrus Fruit.
A decision which the press dis
patches properly characterize as
novel," has just been handed down
Dy justice Mills sitting in the su
preme court at White Plains, N. Y ,
in which it is held that a labor organ
ization whose members are on strike
must pay the employer all the ex
pense he may care to incur in the
employment of guards if strikers
picket his property.
It was not shown that the strikers
did any damage to property or threat
ened any attack on either the prop
erty or the strikebreakers. '
If this decision holds good as law
ny employer having trouble with his
men might easily bankrupt a labor
union i by employing an armv of
Pinkertons to guard his property.
It is a well known fact that large
mployers of labor hire spies at fancy
rices to join the organizations of the
men who work for them'. Why not tax
the labor unions to pay the salaries
of these spies so long as, but fot the
unions, it would not be necessary to
hire them in the first place? Buffalo

Manager Gorman Entitled to Thanks
for Good Vaudeville Attractions.
Manager Gorman of the Majestic
theatre is entitled to the thanks of
theater-goers for his success'' in pre
senting the very best attractions in
the vaudeville line. Not a week goes
by that there is not a bill that would
be a credit to the "top-notch" houses
and nearly every week's bill contains
some specialty that is alone worth the
price of admission. .It took a lot of
hard work arid clevervmanagement on
Mr. Gorman's part to reach the pres
ent standard, and it is a pleasure to
know that his efforts are appreciated
by the amusement-loving public.
Incidentally, and for the information
of union men xand women, it might
be stated that Mr. Gorman is more
than a "mouth friend" of unionism
Hels there with the goods when i
comes to making that friendship
known in a practical way. The Ma
