THE NORTH DIRECTORY.' j
Coming Issue Will Be Best Ever Of
fered to the County,
There are many reasons why the
North City Directory should be pat
ronized by every citizen of .Lancaster
county who needs a directory- One
reason is that it is wholly a home
product. All the work is done in Lin
coln, and Lincoln wage earners do it.
The men who publish it are Lincoln
business men. whose every interest Is
in Lancaster county. Apart frorn this
it is the most complete directory ever
issued for the community. . In addi
tion to containing the names of all
males over 21 years of age, it will
contain the names of all Lancaster
county taxpayers, a complete direc
tory of Havelock, University Place,
College View, and Bethany, and the
names of wives who are propertyhold
ers in their own right. It will also be
"thumb indexed," and contain many
other valuable and handy features.
The North Directory has given sat
isfaction in the past and there is every
reason why it should be patronized
to the exclusion of outside directories.
The money spent for or invested in
the North Directory Is 'kept in Lincoln.

S. L. CHAPLIN,
CHURCH AND LABOR.
How Far Can the Church Go in Sup
porting Organized Labor? .
A few days ago an excited trades
union official held me up in a labor
hall by reading a telegram sent to him
by the secretary of a central labor
union somewhere on the Pacifiocoast,
which telegram insisted that I should
Immediately change the decision of
the trustees of a certain church, who
had awarded a contract for a new
church building to a non-union build
er. I had never heard of the church,
never heard of the preacher, and
hadn't the slightest notion as to who
the .trustees were. The contract had
been agreed upon, and, presumably, the
builder was already on the job. And
simply because I am a trades union
ist, and have repeatedly r stated my
conviction as an individual, that
trades unionism is a good thing, and
that every workingman should be
come a member of the union, it was
assumed that I could accomplish by a'
wave of the hand, or by a threat of
excommunication, or some other dire
calamity, the task which these local
trades unionists had failed to perform.
Because I frankly told my challenger
that I really could not reverse the de
cision of these men, he roundly
abused me in his local labor paper. I
did not mind the abuse. I have be
come quite accustomed to getting jt
both from the church and from labor.
But the incident gives me the oppor
tunity to make Just one point which
should be perfectly clear in the mind
of every trades unionist, when he crit
icises the church for not heartily en
dorsing Organized labor as such.
I have repeatedly stated on the plat
form and in the press that the church
cannot advocate socialism or any
other economic theory, because there
may be an honest difference of opin
ion concerning the matters among the
membership of the church. However,
the workingman has a perfect right to
insist that the church shall stand bv
him In his fight for better living condi-
tioons, a reasonable number of bours

a living wage, and a square deal in
everv other particular, but and I say
this with perfect frankness the trades
unionist has no right to expect tbo
churcb to help him maintain his or
ganization, any more than the church
man has a right to insist that the
trades unionist shall maintain the
church. If it is right in one case, it
must be right in the' other. If the
trades unionist declares that the
church must stand unequivocally for
organized labor, then the ch'urchmem
ber has an equal right to insist that
the trades unionist must stand un
euuivocallv for the church, for they
both declare for higher standards of
i morals and ethics, better homes, bet
ter schools, and better living inNevery
It seems to me that for the church
to say that the contentions of organ
ized labor for improved conditions are
just, without committing Itself in any
way to a particular system whereby
these conditions are to be secured, is
all that anybody has a right to expect
of it. The church must not stop at
the point of passing resolutions, but
it must be given the right to work
with every or any movement which
is fighting for the securing of fairer
conditions. The Catholic church, the
Protestant phurch and the Jewish
church may work together in thJs
i struggle, even though they may not
accept each other's religious platforms,
but in so far as they agree upon the
things for which they are contending,
they should present a united front. If
this liberty is granted the church, it
will be very much easier for , the
churchy to work together with the
union in the accomplishment of spe
cific reforms. The real test of the
church's sincerity in the matter of its
sympathy for the trades unionist in
this struggle for better things is not
in the mere "recognition" of his union,
but in its willingness to help him se
cure the practical things which he is
after. -This it can readily do when the
issue has a moral basis, as in the case
of a fight for little children, for weak
women, for dowh-trodden men, for a
weekly rest-day, for a living wage, for
decent living conditions. When the
question at stake is merely a matter
of expediency, of jurisdiction, of a rec
ognition of the union, or a similar mat
ter, then the churcb must have the
right (to remain neutral, just as ,the
trades union would not be expected to
take sides were the church to take up
the matter of denominational differ
ences, of creeds or forms of govern
ment. As individuals, we may think
as we please about the affairs of the
church or of labor, but we cannot as
sume to commit our organization-
either church or laboi? to any system
outside of their peculiar province... ;
