A Lot of Things for Nebraskans to
Get Busy Boasting About.
Of course Nebraska is a great
agricultural state one ot the very
greatest," and Deputy Labor Com
missioner Maupin the other day.
Other states may raise a greater
number of bushels of corn and wheat
and oats, but Nebraska raises more
corn, wheat and oats per capita than
any other state. In all three of these
grains our yield per acre is away
yonder ahead ot the general average
of all the states. We've got "em all
beat in output of hay, wild, timothy
and alfalfa. We have every reason
to boast of our agricultural resources,
but agriculture is no longer our sole
dependence. It is the basis of all
wealth, to be sure, not only in Ne
braska, but everywhere else, but the
time has come in the history of Ne
braska when we may feel satisfied
that our agricultural supremacy is no
longer questioned or menaced, and
therefore devote some time and atten
tion to letting the world know what
we are doing along other lines.
"We are doing some manufacturing
in Nebraska and when we get wise
to our opportunities we will do more.
In 1908 Nebraska manufacturing
plants and industries turned out $151,
000,000 worth of manufactured goods
from raw material raised mostly in
Nebraska. That was $20,000,000 more
than the value of our live stock in
1908. Men engaged in mechanical
pursuits, including transportation, re
ceived upward ot $20,000,000 in wages
in Nebraska in 1908. Ever stop to
think what a great variety of articles
we manufacture in Nebraska? I'll give
you a partial list, and it will help yon
form some . idea of our growing im
portance as a manufacturing state.'
Deputy Labor Commissioner Maupin
then fixed up the following list:
Automobiles, alfalfa meal, aprons,
artificial stone, awnings.
Beet sugar, beer, buttons, brooms,
baking powder, boots, boxes, brick,
breakfast foods, butter, barrels.
Carriages, creamery supplies, can
dy, caps, crackerjack, cornice, crack
ers, canned goods, cigars.
Dental supplies, dusters, divans,
Engines marine, locomotive and
stationery; electrical supplies, en
, Fire escapes, fences, flour, foundry
Gloves, garments, garden tools, gas
Harness, hats, hardware novelties.
Incubators, isinglass, ice.
Jellies, jewelry, job printing, jams.
Kalsomine, knit goods.
Leather goods, loose leaf ledgers,
lightning rods, liquors.
Machinery, marble goods, mat
tresses, mineral waters.
Overalls, optical goods.
Pickles, pumice stone, paints, paper,
patent medicines, mill products, pave
Quince preserves (out of real
Rugs, roofing, rubber stamps.
Stoves, shoes, shot, Saratoga chips.
saddles, shades, signs, soap, sus
Trunks, tinware, tags, tools.
Valises, vinegar. "
Whisky, washing machines, wagons.
whips, wire goods.
Xcellent ice cream In car load
Tacht engines, yeast.
"Try a new game some evening,'
suggests Mr. Maupin. "Just take this
list and see how many things you
know are made in Nebraska that you
can add to it.
"We stand at the head of the edu
cational column, yet we foolishly ship
our raw hides to Massachusetts and
buy them back in the shape of shoes,
mulcting ourselves for the freight
charges both ways and leaving all
the wages on the Atlantic coast.
Same thing with the millions of
pounds of wool annually clipped from
the backs of Nebraska sheep. Why
not tan Nebraska hides in Nebraska,
and make this Nebraska leather into
shoes by Nebraska labor in Nebraska
factories? Why not do the same thing
in regard to wool? Don't whine about
not having cheap fuel for power pur
poses. Just harness the millions of
horse power going to waste in the
Missouri. Platte, Loup and Niobrara
rivers. All the wheat that is raised
in Nebraska and not exported ought
to be ground in Nebraska mills, and
the Nebraskan who neglects or refuses
to insist upon having Nebraska ground
flour in the kitchen lacks some of the
needful elements of state pride and
patriotism. Everything made in Ne
braska and put on exhibition anywhere
ought to be labeled "Made in -Ne
"When you are not 'standing up
for Nebraska you are missing an
opportunity to boost yourself as well
as your state."
A SAFE VEHICLE.
Brother Bridwell is going to drive
to Lincoln to the State Federation of
Labor convention on the water wagon.
He has been riding for more than a
year. There is room for more on the
same wagon. There is a fine view of
the surroundings from the top of the
wagon. Wallace Norton is one of the
late arrivals in town and . is a pas

May 26. Mr. Carrol had been ill for
several weeks, and during his illness

He leaves a wife. The funeral ser

The local union hopes to have an
organizer in Lincoln before very
long. The outside men are in pretty
good shape, but the inside men are
not so well organized. It is hoped
that an organized can effect a bet

Locally work is pretty good. All

WE'LL CATCH- UP.
State Labor t Commissioner Will
Maupin of Nebraska has issued a call
for a convention to be held at Lincoln,
June 21-22, to form a State Federation
of Labor. Most working people will be
surprised to know that the trade
unionists of that otherwise progressive
state have lagged so far behind in the
militant labor movement. Pueblo,
