ARBITRATION, COMPULSORY OR
The present street car situation in
Omaha calls renewed attention to the
fact that Nebraska is no longer wholly
an agricultural state, and is therefore
in need of legislation that will recog
nize changed conditions. Everybody
recognizes that Nebraska is plugging
along under a constitution that is a
quarter of a century behind the times,
and that her code of laws is a crazy
patchwork illy becoming such a great
Twenty-five or thirty years ago the
most sanguine Nebraskan did not be
lieve that Nebraska would ever
amount to much agriculturally, and
no one believed that industrial pur
suits would ever be any factor in the
life of the state. Today Nebraska is
taking high rank, industrially as well
as agriculturally, and it is high time
that attention be given to the enact
ment of laws in recognition of these
changed conditions. In the metropolis
of Nebraska today a half-dozen men
on one side who claim tehy have noth
ing to arbitrate, and six hundred men
on the other side who claim and
justly that they have a grievance
which they are willing to arbitrate,
have plunged the city into strife, par
alyzed business and cast a shadow
over the city's future prosperity.
Clearly and " emphatically there
should be some method of preventing
a recurrence of this sort of thing. It
is true that the statutes provide a
crude sort of intervention, but it is
crude too crude to stand as the best
intelligence of this state on matters
pertaining to the industrial and social
welfare of the commonwealth. New-
Zealand, fifty years ago a penal col
ony, is leagues and leagues ahead of
us in this respect. - We are lagging
far behind Canada along these lines.
Why should any one man, or any
set of men, be allowed to paralyze the
business of a city or a commonwealth?
Why should personal feeling be al
lowed to sacrifice the welfare of hun
dreds of innocent men and women?
Why should a public service corpora
tion, dependent for its very life upon
the people, arrogantly declare that
"there is nothing to arbitrate" when
it becomes involved in a controversy
with a considerable number of the
people who make up the great general
public upon which it is dependent and
to which it owes everything?
If either party to a controversy af
fecting the public is right, that party
has nothing to fear from arbitration.
If it is wrong it is only natural that I
it should fear arbitration.
Nebraska needs a clear-cut, well de
fined and simple arbitration law. The
Wageworker believes in. compulstory
arbitration arbitration at the demand
of either party to an industrial dis
pute. It would fervently oppose com
pulsory compliance with the findings
of the board of arbitration, for it
knows only too well the cards are
stacked against the party to the con
troversy who happens to be the wage
earner instead of the wage payer. But
it demands compulstory submission to
arbitration, being well assured that
public opinion will be quite sufficient
to compel compliance with the findings
of such a board.
Changed conditions in Nebraska de
mand recognition at the hands of the
lawmakers. The next legislature of
Nebraska ought to get busy in recog
nizing these changed conditions, quit
playing for partisan advantage and
proceed to legislate in accordance
with present day needs.
And above all else Nebraska needs
a new constitution. The quicker that
new constitution is obtained the bet
ter it will be for both capital and
to raise the same, amount of mpney
tor a similar purpose.
The Wageworker rejoices that the
Y. M. C. A. building campaign was so
gloriously successful rejoices for
more reasons than one. First, it is a
complete answer to the assertion that
Lincoln is a "dead one." Secondly, it
shows that Lincoln is thinking a
whole lot more about men and a whole
lot less about dollars in these "sadly
degenerate" ' days. That mere fact is
enough to make the most confirmed
pessimist rejoice and be exceeding
Now, if the same public spirited
gentlemen who pushed the Y. M. C. A.
building campaign to success will join
hands and help the workingmen of
Lincoln to provide a "Labor Temple"
they will have forever hushed the as
sertion that Lincoln is a "dead one."
What say you, gentlemen?
The - fact that there is no law com
pelling the warring factions in Omaha
to get together is sufficient warrant
for the existence of a State Federa
tion of Labor and the Federation will
see to it that such a law is at least
asked for and worked for at the next
session of the legislature.
Oh, yes, the Omaha strike could
have been settled in a minute. All the
strikers had to do was to consent to
the sacrificing of their executive com
mittee and a few of the leaders.
Wouldn't that have been easy and
HOME MADE CANDIES
Yes, we know this little old sheet
is short on local stuff this week, but
if you've been watching the Omaha
papers for news of the street car strike
there you will know the reason why.
Even a labor editor has his physical
and mental limitations.
Things base ballically ended up so
well in Lincoln that we are wonder
ing whether it will be a Saturday half
holiday or Sunday baseball next year.
Well, the "Links" didn't finish in the
last hole, and "Ducky" didn t land his
team in the first hole two reasons
why the Lincoln "bugs" are rejoicing.
A lot of members of the Omaha
Business Men's Association see things
in a different light today. The pock
etbook nerve has been touched.
We have a sneaking idea that pub
lic ownership is in greater favor than
ever in our neighboring city of Omaha.

who think that prosperity and liveli

DELECTABLE SWEETS EASY
Old-Time Butterscotch One of the
Simplest and Most Wholesome of
Dainties That Children Love.
Old-Time Butterscotch. Put three
pounds of light brown sugar fn an en
ameled kettle with three-fourths of a
pound of butter. Place over a mod
erate fire to melt; let it boil until
thick, stirring all the while to pre
vent scorching. Take the kettle from
the fire and pour the boiling hot liquid
into buttered tins or upon a large flat
meat platter. When stiff enough mark
oft into big squares and when cold
break these apart and wrap each
square in waxpaper. Butterscotch
carefully made will keep for months.

Peanut Candy a la Charleston
Mammy. This delectable sweet is
called ground-nut cake in Charleston
and a fine molasses is used for it in
stead of sugar. Remove the shells
and skins from the roasted peanuts
and if convenience for eating is liked
divide each nut in half; but the
brittle cake that shows the whole nut
is the dearer goody in the southern
city by the sea. Then put two heap
ing tablespoonfuls of butter and the
juice of one lemon in a quart of New
Orleans molasses and boil it with care
ful stirring until it threads. Then
take the vessel from the fire and dump
in the nuts, mixing them well with
the molasses. When the mixture is
chilled enough to permit its lying fair
ly well "where it is put" drop a light
tablespoonful in divided blobs along a
flat buttered tin.
The moment for eating the cakes is
when they have become as brittle as
glass. The Charleston "mammy"
uses a . slab of old white marble for
the chilling purpose - and sells them
"six for fi' cents,". looking as if she
had been as neat as a pin about the
business in her stiff purple calico and

Why The Wageworker Is Even Slim-
mer Than Usual This Week.
We realize as much as anybody
that The Wageworker this week is
not quite up to standard. Bdt when
the reason is given the editor has
faith to believe that Wageworker
readers will overlook the fact.
Monday morning the editor was
compelled to go to Omaha, and in
his capacity as deputy labor commis
sioner undertake to bring about a
settlement of the street car strike in
that city, and failing that to prepare
for an investigation of the difficulty
as provided by statute. He spent the
first three days of the week in an un
availing effort to .procure a settle
ment. At this time he is not at lib
erty to make public his findings as to
the situation, that result now being
in the hands of Governor . Shallen-
berger. The governor is probably in
Omaha before this issue reaches its
readers, and as labor commissioner
of the state making an official inves
tigation of the controversy.
It was a strenuous three days for
the editor man, and he offers this as
a reason for whatever discrepancies
may appear in this issue' of The
COOK WORE UNION CLOTHES.
United Garment Workers Make
vertising of the Fact.
It is now found that in addition to
being a great honor to Dr. Cook his
discovery of the north pole - has
dred thousand dollars is a pretty tidy j brought distinction and advertising
sum of money, yet it took Lincouln
Just ten sdays to raise that amount by
popular subscription for the purpose
of building an institution that is not
expected to pay dividends in actual
money that is to say, dividends of
the nature of "cent per cent" on the
investment. Dead towns do not raise
that much money for anything. Dead
towns do not even undertake to raise
such sums. And some towns much
larger than Lincoln and much more
pretentious, take three times as long
to the United Garment Workers of
America. The reason for this is that
when Cook stood on the top of the
world he wore unionmade clothing,
so the union now enjoys the envi
able record of having clothes of
their make the first at the pole,
Charles F. Reichers, ex-president of
the union, says that Cook also wore
union clothes on his memorable
climb of Mount McKinley. Brooklyn
Bavarian Apple Pie.
One of the most delicious ways to
use apples, in cookery, is in a Ba
varian pie: Line a deep dish with
pastry. Fill in with breadchumbs,
and bake it until the pastry is done;
then remove the crumbs, and fill the
cavity with' chopped apples and nuts
and some stoned raisins. - Sweeten
with sugar and flavor with nutmeg
and cinnamon. Sprinkle with the
crumbs, and bake till it is brown on
ton and the fruit within is thoroughly
cooked. Spread over the top a lemon-
flavored meringue, and let it become
a light brown in the oven. Set the
pie aawy to cool before serving.
Qiiail with Dressing (Original).
Pick and clean carefully six quail;
salt lightly; fill them with the follow
ing dressing: Take three cold boiled
potatoes and one onion, medium sized,
chop rather fine, add a half pint of
bread crumbs moistened with warm
(not hot) milk and water, one table
spoonful of butter or lard, two eggs,
pepper, salt and a little sage to taste.
Place the stuffed quail In a baking
pan in a hot oven and bake until the
meat is tender when pricked with a
straw. Serve on a hot platter 1 with
egg dumplings cooked by dropping in
boiling salted water.
To Clean Cut Glass.
Experts in cut glass recommend the
following as the best method of clean
ing cut glass articles:1 Wash the glass
thoroughly with warm soapsuds and
cover with sawdust. As soon as the
sawdust is dry, brush the article very
carefully .with a soft brush, reaching
all the crevices. It will, come out as
clear and sparkling as a bubble fresh
from the pipe without injury to the
Peel, core and slice thick five large
apples. Mix half cup flour, half tea
spoon baking powder, half teaspoon
butter and half teaspoon salt. Mix
half cup of water with one welT-beaten
egg, add to the flour and mix smooth.
Melt a spoonful of fat in the frying
pan dip the apple slices in the batter
and fry a light brown on both sides.
Keep the pan covered while frying.
Serve with sugar sprinkled over them
Rice for Invalid.
Butter a common glass (previously
warmed) and line with warm boiled
rice. Into it pour the stiffly beaten
white of an egg with a pinch of salt.
Into the mound of white carefully
drop the unbroken yolk of the egg.
Set the glass in warm water, let the
water come to a boil and cook long
enough to set the white. Serve with
Mix early in the morning a quart of
flour with a well-beaten egg, a spoon
