J1Yn H Y should you use poor Kerosene Oil and cheat your
eyes? Why not pay 20c per gallon and have as nice a
light as gas? The little difference in the price will not amount to
much in a whole year.
Roseine Oil is the highest grade of Pennsylvania Kerosene
made in the world, and if you pay 20c per gallon you are entitled
to get Roseine. That's all it costs, and you can get Roseine if
you ask for it.
Roseine is refined by a special process which makes it en
tirely different than any other Kerosene. You must not mix
Roseine with any other Kerosene. If you do, you will
spoil Roseine. Empty your lamp, put in a new wick and start
right, and you will have a light as nice as gas. 3 '
Now, some merchants may try to sell you some cheaper oil for Roseine,
but if you have any trouble with your lights, call us on the phone and we will
tell you where to get the genuine ROSEINE. Nearly all grocery stores will
deliver you Roseine. Remember, the price is only 20c.

American Federation Going After the
King of All Combines.
The Toronto convention decided to
put the American Federation of Labor
on the trail of the United States Steel
Co. the "steel trust." The first step
in the campaign will be to organize
the "ore fleets" and the next to have
the building trades departments re
fuse to handle the steel product of
non-union mills. Here's hoping the
American Federation of Labor will
wage a winning fight against this
king pin of all union smashers the

Immediately after the Toronto con
vention the executive council of the
American Federation of Labor met in
New York to consider the matter.
While there President Gompers, Vice-
President Mitchell, Secretary Morri

tion attended the annual meeting and
banquet of the National Civic Federa
tion. We've freed our mind about this
Civic Federation several times. -Immediately
after talking over plans for
busting the t steel trust the American
Federation of Labor's officials sat
down to dine with the big bugs who
own and control that giant trust. A

ciling capital and labor," and men

When President Wattles of ' the
Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Rail
way Co. was asked to pay the em
ployes decent wages he declared that
it was impossible to grant an increase
because the city had compelled the
company to pay something like $70,000
a year as an occupation tax. It
sounded goo at the time. But now
And They Make the Employers Come
to Time in Short Order.
Last week six or eight thousand
shirtwaist makers in New York City
went on strike to enforce a demand
for a 20 per cent increase in wages,
shorter hours and better sanitary con
ditions. The employers flatly refused
to submit and proceeded to hunt for
strikebreakers. To their surprise no
strikebreakers were to be found. In
stead, the employers found that the
strikers had enlisted the sympathy of
the public, and had properly fixed
every worker likely to be enlisted as

season for the employers, and they
soon learned that it was either a case
of agree or go out of business.
Before the strike was a week old
the employers began coming across.
They came by threes and fours at
first, then by dozens. By , the end of
the week 80 per cent had signed up
and agreed to the demands of the
shirtwaist makers, and last Tuesday
morning's papers announced the com
plete victory of the strikers. Any one
who has seen the awful conditions un
der which the garment making indus
try is carried on in New York City
will realize what the victory means
to the thousands of women engaged
therein. A 20 per cent increase in
wages seems big, but it means simply
that the girls will now receice from
$5 to $7 a week instead of from $4
to $6. The main concession is the
shortening of the hours and some bet
terment of the conditions under
which the girls must work.. Those
conditions could not be worse, and
any change would have to be for the
