The Musicians'. Union is feeling; good these days. With practically a "100 per cent union"' in the city, and with three theaters going full blast, two or three dancing academies, and univer sity functions Just beginning, business .is booming and the union's member ship is kept busy. The park concert season has closed, and its - success gives assurance of more and longer engagements next summer, witn an in crease in the size of the band en . gaged.

First October Meeting Will Be Held Next Tuesday Evening. ; The first October meeting of the Centra Labor Union will be held at Bruse's hall next Tuesday evening, and some interesting matters will come be- , fore the body. A proposition will be made to engage in a series of open meetings that will he social and edu- catlonal In their character. Some in teresting discussion on traction mat ters will also be held. The central body is in. a position now to take the lead in some good movements; and with a little more enthusiasm It can perform good serv ices in the cause of unionism. Every delegate should make it a point to at tend the meeting next Tuesday evening. count it is contemplated to take up a! collection, to reimburse the state. The plans, however, " are as yet in the formative stage, but unless the strike comes to a sudden termination the petitions will be circulated. . Governor Shallenherger has an nounced officially he will call an extra session for the purpose of passing a guaranty bank deposit law should the present law be declared void by the federal court, providing the decision goes into details on the weak points of the law. This decision is looked for within a short time, and if the gov ernor decides to call the extra session immediately upon the filing of the de cision the friends of the strikers- will request that the creation of a state board of arbitration be included in his cail. Omaha Bee. GLOVEWORKERS' BALL. WILL ASK ARBITRATION. Will Seek Legislation Along that Line at Extra Session. To secure an extra session of the legislature for the enactment of a law providing for the creation of a state board of arbitration is the latest 'move contemplated by friends or sympathiz ers of the striking street carmen. The proposition will be submitted to some of the strike leaders during the day and it is contemplated to have petitions circulated among the people of Omaha within a short time. Those who contemplate this move have figured that it will cost about $20,000 to $30,000 to hold a special session of the legislature, and If the governor should hesitate on that ac- First Annual Function ' at Fraternity Hall on October 13. , The Glovemakers' Union of Lincoln the only one of its kind west of Chi cago is not afraid of the "Thirteen" hoodoo, 1 or anything else, for that matter.' As proof the members have selected October 13 as the date for their first annual ball, and Fraternity hall has been selected as the place of holding it. Bruse's orchestra will fur nish the music. The Glovemakers' Union is not a large body numerically speaking, but it is made up of "live ones" in the union movement, and they may be counted on to show their guests a good time on the occasion of the union's first annual ball. The tickets are 50 cents per couple, extra lady 25 cents. A cordial invitation is extend ed to all friends. reported here that he had bought It of a smooth looking stranger! for $225.34. Work continues to keep up In good style, and if there is a compe tent printer out of employment it" is because he wants a vacation. The board o trustees of the Home at Colorado Springs has adopted the rule that hereafter ten years' con tinuous membership will be required for admission to the Home. By the way, Minneapolis is not so awfully far from Lincoln not much further than St. Joseph, What's the matter with organizing a "Minneapo lis, 1910" Club right now, and pave the way for a special car? Don't that sound good? STREET RAILWAY MEN. TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION. October Meeting Was Short and Lit tle Business Transacted. The meeting of the Typographical Union last Sunday was a little short er than usual, and practically noth ing was considered except routine business. The committee appointed to report on matters financial did so and made a few recommendations. They were taken under advisement and will be acted upon at the Novem ber meeting. "Doc" RIghter returned from his Chicago visit the first of the week. He failed to bring the Masonic Tem ple back -with him, although it was Will Meet This Evening to Transact t .-- Some Important Business. The street railway men will hold their regular semi-monthly meeting at Bruse's hall this Saturday) even ing, beginning promptly at midnight. Business of Importance will come be fore the association, among other things being the consideration of the case of - a former official who is charged with being recreant to a trust reposed in him. It is rumored that this former official la now "scab bing" in Omaha, although the report has not yet been verified. An international officer will prob ably be present to confer with the members about certain matters, and every one should be present to listen and take a part. Former Secretary Damewood left Monday for Phillips county, Colo., where he has some real estate business to transact. He will probably engage in business in that section of the country. The local or ganization is not at all alarmed about the rumored collapse of the strike in Omaha. They are being kept posted on a lot of matters that are not being given to the general pub lic. A street car strike is not al ways lost when the service is prac tically restored. vest the money on hand in real ' es tate right away, and with that end in view a committee is chasing around looking for the right place. A suitable building is in view, and an effort is being made to arrange terms for its purchase. If the nego tiations go through it will be up to the unionists of Lincoln to get busy and pay out, or stand to lose what has already been paid in and pledged. The directors will meet again Mon day evening, and every' Monday even ing hereafter until further notice, at Chaplin & Ryan's barber, shop on North Twelfth street. THINK IT OVER. LABOR TEMPLE MATTERS. There is a "Hen On" and She May Hatch in. a Few Days. Speaking by the card, there is a ten on in Labor Temple matters, and in a day or two there may be some thing doing. The directors met last Monday evening and decided to in- Perhaps It Will Show Where the Trouble is Located. Since the civic federation with its gay dinners, , its August Belmont, the swallowed up the 'principal union leaders THERE HASN'T BEEN A STRIKE OF ANY' IMPORTANCE WON IN THE UNITED STATES. It's hardly worth while to i talk about unions and . union men and union wages, ' when the union leaders sit down at table with Belmont or go traveling abroad with his money in their pockets, to Investigate muni cipal ownership, If you please, when union workmen quit the unions to save dues and when they vote by an overwhelming majority for govern ment by the trusts.

DECLINES INVITATION. .Y-. V I San Francisco Labor Man Refuses to , Eat With Taft. ' '?'..', San Francisco,' Sept. . 27. Andrew Gallagher, vice president of the Inter national Photo Engravers, secretary of the Labor Council and a big labor leader,' today, declined to dine at the banquet at Fairmont hotel to be tend ered President Taft at Frisco. He said, "until the president changes his attitude toward .two' problems with which organized labor' have to deal, I shall not feel it consistent with my principles to accept an invitation to meet Taft at the banquet where he is received as the head of the govern ment. As a labor official and. unionist, I do not tare to meet him officially, In view of his record on labor mat ters." '' ; - ; .' . WHAT'S THE USE? Mitchell Syndicated His Letters Just Like Gompers Does. People who live In glass houses shouldn't throw stones. When Presi dent Mitchell of the United Mine Workers went abroad several years ago and sold newspapers his . obser vations written there, nobody raised any fuss and feathers. Now the of ficial organ of that organizations tries to raise a tempest in a teapot be cause President Gompers . of the American Federation of Labor is do ing exactly what President Mitchell did. This was the answer given by an official of the federation today to the attack on President Gompers con tained in the current Journal of the United Mine Workers. ' "President Gompers," said the of ficial of the federation today, ''was only induced to permit syndicating of A Little Catechism that Will Amuse ; and Interest. "Why do we send missionaries to the savages?" "To civilize them." - - "What good does that do them?" ' "It educates them out of habits of idleness." "And what then?" "They go to work." - "What do they work .for?" "To become prosperous and rich." "What good does prosperity do them?" "It procures them leisure and comfort?"

W, Wattles points with pride to the fact that he was the head of the Trans-Mississippi exposition at Oma ha and that it was the first exposi tion in the " history . of expositions that paid out. Why would it not he just as glorious for Mr. Wattles to have made another record for him self as the head of one corporation that received its employes and treat ed them as fellow, men and fellow laborers in the , economy and com mercial life? Is it not .about time to discard, this, old chestnut? ."There is ' nothing to arbitrate." '; A lot of sensible men ' do not make demand without reason. Council Bluffs Times. POLITICAL.
