GOOD FOR GALESBURG.
Union Men Hustle and Elect Union
Musician as Mayor.
George Sanderson will be the next
mayor of Galesburg, Hls which means
that Galesburg win have a union
mayor, for Sanderson is a member of
the Musicians Union of that city.
He was elected by a landslide for the
workingmen of the city were aroused
by the opposition's sneering allusion
to Sanderson as a "mere workinz-
nian. I he workers campaigned in
sgnads. boosting Sanderson as "the
workingman's candidate," and he went
through with flying colors.
But it took hard work and the
united efforts of the unionists of the
city. And what Galesburg unions ac
complished can be accomplished by
the unionists of every other well or
ganized town if they will work to
gether on election day as well as they
march together on Labor Day. They
failed to do it in Peoria, and as
result Tom O'Connor, a member of
the Plumbers Union, was defeated for
re-election. Mayor O'Connor was
proud of his union card and never lost
an opportunity to mention his mem
bership. But he had too many "knock
ers" in the ranks of organized labor.
and as a result a non-union mayor will
soon preside over Whiskeyville.
