It has been charged in certain quarters that politics" was behind it. It has also been charsed that it was a plan to turn the trades unions over to a political party. It widow and the orphan, and taught men of labor to hold np their heads and demand recognition of their manly rights. Born under a foreign, flag, he is as intense- amenaiu as suij proud descendant of a revolutionary sire. His heart is big enough to take in all creation, and his brain is big enough to enable him to meet and vanquish the enemies of unionism upon their own battlegrounds. Here's hoping that Uncle Sam Gompers will have the time of his life on his European trip. He will be met by no parade of troops, nor ill he be heralded by uniformed flunkies at the courts of kings and emperors. But he will be nauea wun acclaim by the Grand Army of Toil, and he will be welcomed ino the homes of the men and women whose toil and skill has made this the greatest generation in all the his tory of time. And may he return even better fitted than now to lead the hosts of labor to greater victories in the arts of peace and happiness.

It will be the purpose ot the State Federation of Labor to work for a better recognition of the 200,000 men and women of Nebraska who are earning livelihoods at gainful occunations apart from the soil and the professions. It will have a com mitiee to look after legislation in the interests of the wage-earners, and to oppose laws adverse to their inter ests. It will strive to secure a better recognition of those departments of state charged with the duties of look ing after the enforcement of sanitary laws, the employment of labor and the protection of life and limb. It will seek to promote closer relations between men of all trades and crafts. It will seek to be a force in politics. not from a partisan standpoint, but from the standpoint of the welfare of those who toil for wages. These are some or the purposes of the proposed organization. The men who are interested in promoting this organization have nothing to conceal. The sessions of the Federation will be as open as any church revival The proceedings will be printed and distributed free to all who may be interested enough to ask for them. The first man who seeks to use the organization for partisan purposes will be thrown over the transom. It will be an organization of earnest men and women seeking to advance I ation the general welfare of the toilers. It will deserve the support of every citizen who wants to see better con ditions prevaiL velt to investigate American homes? I Come on with it!

One great reason for this being a fact is that no other establishment in Ne braska can equal the Armstrong Clothing Company in value-giving. Because of our large purchasing ability we get the pick of the market; because our methods of doing business are based on the principle of fair dealing; because the Armstrong guarantee is never questioned. These are a few of the reasons why the Armstrong Clothing Company does the largest retail clothing business in Nebraska and is one of the largest re tail clothing establishments between the two big mountain ranges. ; ACTS fROM $15 TO $40 We are featuring a magnificent line of hand-tailored suits a line from which the most fastidious dresser may select to his satisfaction and there is big value in every garment.
