Several union ironworkers iu St. Joseph, Mo., are under arrest, charged with having dynamited a couple of school buildings that were being erected by non-union ironworkers. Without knowing anything at all about the merits of the case, The Wageworker is willing to wager that there is a scheme n foot either to cover np a couple of losing contracts or to discredit the ironworkers union. It is very easy to explode a little gunpowder under a bit of iron work, and then make a play for public sym pathy by charging the "ouiraga" to union labor. That sort of thing has been worked time and again, and i more than once the daily newspapers htve "fallen" for the scheme. Or a contractor, seeking to get rid of a losing contract plugs up a "union outrage' and then gets an extension of time or an amendment to his contract ! that will permit him to make good a loss entailed because of his own ignorance. That, too, has been done. There is no denying . that union men have often been guilty of out rages not, however, because they were union men, but because they were men. But the average union ist knows that to forfeit public sym pathy is to destroy practically every chance to win a victory. Why, then, should a union man attempt to de stroy buildings on which union la bor was discriminated against and non-union labor employed? It is always wise to double dis count all these daily newspaper stories of "union outrages." In the first place they are always fearfully exag gerated. In the second place they are seldom rightfully chargeable to union men. Before judgment is passed in this St. Joseph case, just wait un til further facts are made public. . We know there is not a clothing store in Nebraska that can equal us in value giving. We know there are no better clothes made in America than youll find here. We know that our methods of doing business are based on the principle of fair dealing. --there are no better clothes made anywhere in the world than the fine hand tailored suits of imported woolens we are featur ing at $25, $30, $35 and $40- They are costly, but the full value is there and youll get it. the same proportion of value to price in our suits at $10 to $20. In this price range you'll find plenty of choice the season's best models and newest colorings and weaves. Just as soon as you see the clothes at this store youll know they are amazing values for the money. Youll see the values, even if you are not much of a judge of clothes, for the value stands out plain. ARMSTRONG CIO ; - ; ;r Vs. V-l I 2 ?? I ft sLvrVw I RING CO: STUDENT FOOLISHNESS. Now dont be too harsh with the student boys. They are full of ani mal spirits and sometimes other kinds. "Boys will be boys," and very often they will fail to distinguish be tween boyishness and ruffianism. The Wageworker loves the college student. Once upon a time, many years ago. The Wageworker man was a univer sity student himself. That is, he was martriculated, wore a dinkey little cap on the side of his head, smoked a bulldog pipe, tinkled a little on the sweet Spanish guitar and warbled a bit under me loidy's window. He has performed the serpentine dance, par aded in his nightie, helped to put a wagon on the chapel platform, stolen the bell clapper, tick-tacked the prexy's window and "ponied" his way through various dead and rotten lan guages. But there is one thing -that if often done by modern university students that The Wageworker man never did he never "scabbed on a working man who was trying to earn an hon est living and fighting for a decent wage. He never fell quite so low as to set as a "strikebreaker, as some of President Eliot's students have done in order to be "heroes. And he never quite so forgot his gentlemanly instincts as to invade the fair co-eds dormitory and perform ruffian feats under the mistaken impression that was either smart or the sign of real "university spirit. The Wageworker likes to see the university students having a good time. Its editor had a bully time True, like a lot of the university boys in Lincoln, he spent so much time having a good time that he didn't learn very much that was worth while. He has learned a lot more since quitting the university than he learned while he was there, but what he has learned since was knocked into him instead of soaking Into1 him. That will be the way with a lot of the young men now going to the University of Nebraska. But in all friendship, and candor The Wageworker would suggest to the university young men that they cut out some of the feats and freaks. They may appear smart now. but they will look awfully foolish in retrospect. GOOD CLOTHES MERCHANTS Boys will be boys, but they can be young gentlemen at the same time. W'ell back the student body of the University of Nebraska against any state university student body in Amer ica for looks, for intelligence, for na tural ability and for all that goes to make up young American manhood and womanhood. It makes a man feel proud of Nebraska every time he sees that magnificent army of young men and women. And we want that student body to even improve upon its record. What The Wageworker has said complimentary to the student body does not apply to that particular ele ment that thinks it Is smart to swill beer, load up on bug juice and go around smelling like a distillery. It will take something more than a state university to make any impres sion on the adamantine brains of young men of that particular stripe. The best thing to make an impression upon such is a large, knotty, water elm club, wielded by a strong-armed father. The city council has done exactly right in locating that drinking foun tain, regardless of the protest of adja cent property-holders. It ought to provide about a doxen more and lo cate them where they will do the most good, and tell the Protestants to go chase themselves. Church people who insist upon reg ulating the amusements of the work ingmen would be awfully indignant if the workingmen insisted upon regulat ing the matter of baptism. Did you read the story last week, showing how John Mitchell skinned the new president of the Union Bust ers association? If you did not you missed something. Chief of Police Rickard has begun the policy of trying to keep the news away from the reporters. Well goodby, Mr. Chief; take keer o per-self. If you ha pen to be idle on June 21 or 22. just attend the State Federation of Labor meeting at the state house. Program in full next week. Paying tributes to the memory of the dead act to make us more re gardful of the living. We make no apologies for devoting so much space this week to the m morial services of the Typographical union. The addresses made refer as directly to all other unions as they do to that of the printers, and every union man will profit by reading the addresses. The excise board will be doing the right thing if it retains the services of Detective Mai one. "Jim may have about the average share of human faults and frailties, but there is one thing awfully sure he usually gets there. And yet, Mr. Workingman, if you don't belong to the church what right have you to "kick" on what the church does? Isn't it just about as bad to "scab" on the churches as it is to "scab on your fellow worker? By the way, just as a matter of in formation, we would like to take a peek into the cellars and refrigerators of a number of people who were very insistent upon making Lincoln a "dry- town. railroads conducted by the Pennsyl vania railroad commission during the first quarter of this year, show that brakemen. section hands and fire men furnished most of the killed and injured in the order named. The to tal number of fatalities for the quar ter were 74, of which 21 were brake men and 20 section hands. Most of the brakemen were killed by falling or jumping from trains. The number of brakemen hurt reaches 423 in a total of 1,369 persons injured. A MINISTERIAL BRICKLAYER. When President Kirby undertakes to reply to John Mitchell the presi dent of the Union Busters win be so mad that there is danger he will bite a chunk out of his own cheek. The Thompson fountain has been kicked around from pillar to post about long enough. It is high time that this magnificent gift to the city be treated with some respect. The Wageworker offered to head a subscription list for The striking hat ters with a five dollar bill. So far there has not been a single response. What's the matter. t's all right to demand the label in your hat, but demanding the label in your hat right now won't put any grub on the tables of the striking hatters. In the meanwhile, don't believe all you read in the papers about the awful doings in Havelock. The ignorance of union men is re sponsible in large measure for the. oppression practiced by employers. Programs for the state federation of labor meeting will be out next week. Si' FATALITIES ON RAILROADS. Investigations made into the causes of numerous accidents to employes of Rev. John Mclntyre Takes a Union Card With His Craftsmen. The St. Paul, Minn.. Bricklayers union, gained a distinguished acces-i sion to its membership recently when i Rev. Robert Mclntyre. bishop of the Methodist Episcopal church, stationed in St. Paul, was initiated. The at tendance was large, and the ceremon ies imposing in consonance with the event. Bishop Mclntyre was a brick layer early in life, and has never lost interest in the craft. He is loyal to the principles of unionism, and means to show this by an active participa tion in the work of the union. nected with it. That man has beea a stench in the nostril of decent anion men for years. God knows organized labor has enough to answer for with out having men like Madden posing as martyrs to the cause. He has beea fought by honest unionists for years, but he managed to hold oa by sheer bulldog tenacity and by organizing s tough gang to back him. He has ter rorized where he could sot boy, and he has cost organized labor maay heavy losses. Now let the court get after his accomplices, the so-called "prominent business men" who are just as guilty in giving Maddea aaasv ey as he was in taking is. What fa sauce for the union saaa's goose is sauce for the buaiaess man's gander. "Skinny Madden and M. J. Boyle, the Chicago unionists charged with fraudulently "settling strikes," have been found guilty. Madden almost collapsed when the verdict wast an nounced, but he recovered enough to ten the reporters that he considered the result of the trial "a bad thing for unionism. That, however, is where "Skinny Madden is wrong. The worst thing that can happen to union ism is to have men like Madden con- ONCE BAD ALWAYS BAD.
