Landed en the Optic of an Insistent
' Bill Collector.
Every now and then we hear of raon
who think that because a man is a
preacher he will take any old insult.
And when we hear of a preacher who
will not submit to insult merely be
cause he Is a clergyman, we feel like
throwing up our union hat and cheer
ing him. That's why we cheer for
Rev. I G. Parker. We don't know
much about the merits of the case, but
we know that Parker is a minister,
and that a bill collector seemingly
sought to take advantage of the fact.
The result was that the reverend gen
tleman landed on the bill collector's
optic, giving it the color of a some
what decomposed piece of beef.
Rev. Mr. Parker appeared in police
court, cheerfully admitted that he had
biffed the complainant, and Just as
cheerfully coughed up the usual $5
and costs. If there is any one man
we admire more than another, it is a
minister who has the courage of his
convictions and the readiness to re
sent insult ,by laying aside his cler
ical coat long enough to smash the
everlasting Btuffin' out of the man who
seeks to impose upon his ministerial
profession. That's why we have ac
quired a great admiration for Rev.
Mr. Parker, although we've never had
the pleasure of meeting the gentle-
Is Now President of the Traction Com
pany In Lincoln.
W. E. Sharp doubtless enjoyed his
Thanksgiving turkey with more than
usual gusto. And why not? The day
before he achieved one of his great
ambitions by becoming president of
the Lincoln Traction Co. Mr. Sharp
had maneuvered for the position for
many months, and his success is a
credit to bis ability aa an organizer
and as a financier.
C. T. Boggs was elected vice-president,
and J. E. Miller and J. C. Sea-
crest were elected to the executive
committee. This all means that the
"Citizen's crowd" is now in absolute
control of the traction interests of Lin
coln. And it isn't bo very long ago
that Mr. Scudder bet a suit of clothes
that the Citizens' company would
never run a car.
The consolidation has already re
sulted in a decreased car service, and
gangs are now at work taking down
trolley wire and taking up rails along
the old Citizens' route. It is to be
hoped that the new management will
realize the needs of the people and
make an honest effort to meet them.
.Messrs. Sharp, Boggs, Miller and Sea
crest will have to go some if they
meet the expectations of the people,
for these gentlemen have earned the
reputation of being public spirited,
liberal and eager to advance the wel
fare of Lincoln.
about for a suitable location where its
members may meet to practice with
out disturbing their fellow unionists.
But the musicians are a unit in de
claring that they will let N no oppor
tunity go by to co-operate with their
fellow unionists in making the Labor
Temple project a success. The busi
ness meeting of the local will doubt
less be held in the Temple.
Local Business Men Up Against the
"Scab" Larkln Company.
It's about the funniest thing we've
noticed lately this complaint from
local business men that the "Larkln
Soap Club" scheme is hurting their
business. As long as these business
men thought that the "scab" Larkin
Soap Co. was only hurting union men
and women they didn't pay any atten
tion to it. "The Larkin company had
a right to manage its own business to
suit itself," don't you know. "What
darned fools those union men and
women were, to be sure, for trying to
prevent their friends from patronizing
this unfair concern." v
It's different, now. Those same
business men are hollering their
heads off because the "Larkin Soap
Club" scheme is taking dollars out of
their pockets. As long as the Larkin
outfit only took wages out of the
pockets of the workers it was all
right, but just as soon as they found
out that they were being injured the
local merchants proceeded to make a
holler that can be heard from Alpha
to Omaha, from Hades to Breakfast.
As we remarked in the beginning,
this tickles us mighty near to death.
And the louder the merchants holler
the more it tickles us. Perhaps it will
have the effect of making the local
merchant realize that what benefits
the wage earner also benefits him.
When that great truth percolates
through his cranium there is sonie
hope for him.
Take a Liberal Slice of Labor Temple
Stock and Boost.
The Musicians' Union at its last reg
ular meeting took hold of the Labor
Temple project and gave it a nice
boost. By unanimous vote $132 was
appropriated for the purchase of Tem
ple stock, and it is generally agreed
that in the near future the local will
again boost in a financial way.
Owing to the nature of their pro
fession the musicians need a room
where they can indulge in band and
orchestra , -rrctice, and this, of course,
would hardly be possible in a build
ing like the Labor Temple. For that
reason the Musicians' Union is casting
Omahogs Violate Pledge in Order to
Secure Business Advantage.
When the Omaha Commercial Club
wanted an endorsement from the Fed
erated Commercial Clubs of Nebraska
for the national corn show in Omaha,
its representatives promised to fix the
show dates so as not to Injure the
holiday business of merchants
throughout the state. Having secured
the endorsement, the Omahogs pro
ceeded to set the dates during the
busiest of the holiday buying season.
The corn show attraction, together
with . the low rates, is calculated to
take thousands of Nebraska and Iowa
people to Omaha, with the result that
the big department stores of that city
will gather in the cream of the holi
day trade, to the detriment of business
men in the smaller towns. t will be
a long time before Omaha again
works a dirty trick like that. Your
home merchants deserve your patron
age. The merchants of a city who
resort to tactics like those resorted
to by Omaha merchants might resort
to similar tactics in their dealings
with you. ,
The money that is earned in Lin
coln should, as far as possible, be
spent in Lincoln.
Labor Temple Has Proved to be ?
Profitable Investment.
The annual statement of the di
rectors of the Toronto Labor Temple
shows that the year's business was a
profitable one. The receipts amounted
to $13,568.33, leaving a balance of $1,
856.18. The assets of the company are
the building, $35,888.34; furniture,
$7,500. The profits show an unde
clared dividend of over 13 per cent
The excess of assets over liabilities is
$17,309.87. The original allotment of
stock has been taken up, and the sin
gle transaction of $5.00 for the year
closed the final allotment. At present
there is no stock on the market, and
the company will not issue any more,
at the stoojc as it now stands is worth
more than double what was paid for
We congratulate the union wage earners of this community
on the fact that they are about to move into a "home" of their
own the inew Labor Temple. It will be headquarters for men
with common interests, common objects and common aims. It isi
our earnest wish that the Labor Temple will be the means Of fur
ther strengthening the ties of fraternity..
Another Union Headquarters
This store is headquarters for union men who are in search of
union made clothing, furnishings, hats, shoes, etc. "We lay claim
to carrying more and better union made goods than any other fur
nishing house in the middle west. We can outfit the union man
from head to foot in union made stuff hat, shirt, collar, tie, sus
penders, suit and shoes. And the price we ask is represented to
the fullest extent in the value of the goods. Our regular prices are
the "bargain prices" qf others. We make the "bargain prices" at
the beginning of the season, not at its close. You get your pick
at the bargain price, not a "bargain" price after others have
taken their pick.
Union Made Suits From
$12.50 to $22.50
No taint of the sweat shop about these suits. Union stamped
shoes no convict labor on them. Union made hats r-no trace of
the inion busting hatters' association about them. Union made
suspenders and neckties which means that men and women made
them under sanitary conditions and for fair wages. If you want
goods of this description we'll supply them. The goods union men
make are the goods union men should buy. ;
