It is hard to express in words just how much this means to people who want to dress well and who have a limited amount

There are things doing out in Have
lock these days. The enlargement of
the shops is furnishing a lot of em
ployment to masons, carpenters and
structural ironworkers, and the im
mensity of the new buildings shows
that the shop force is going to be
more than doubled, and that Havelock
will profit by the Burlington policy of
concentrating its shop work there.

Next Sunday there will be a . big
meeting of all the unionists of Have
lock, at which time there will be some
good talks and a general union "love
feast." . The non-unionists have all
been invited to the meeting as the
guests of the union men, and an ef
fort will be made to interest them in
the labor movement. Frank M. Cof
fey, president of the State Federation
of Labor, and the editor of The Wage
worker will be among the speakers
present. The indications are that it
will be one of the biggest union meet
ings ever held in the Shop City. i
Work is rushing at the shops these
days, and working conditions are, get
ting better, too.
The news that the next convention
of the State Federation would con
vene in Havelock -was greeted with
applause when made known to the
Havelock locals by their delegates.
Already plans are being laid to make
' that convention a record' breaker for
the west. All Havelock will join

to the delegates, and there will be
plenty of the right kind of entertain

The matter of having live represen

Labor Union ought to be taken up by
the Havelock locals.
The Machinists' Union is organizing

There is trouble brewing between
the Bricklayers and Masons and the
Operative Plasterers. Not here in
Lincoln, but internationally. Presi

The Minneapolis workhouse some
time ago went into the brickmakiug
industry, using the city prisoners.
Over two million bricks are now on
hand, and the city can not sell them.
Union teamsters refuse to haul them,
contractors refuse to buy them, and
union bricklayers wouldn't touch one
of them with a forty-foo't pole. Local
brick manufacturers protested with
out avail against using convict labor
in the making of brick, but when they
asked the union men to help they
got what they went after.
All this talk from a lot of "high
brows" in the building trades section
of the A. F. of L. to "organize brick
layers" if the B. M. I. U. again re
fuses to affiliate is tommy rot. If the
Bricklayers do not want to affiliate,
that's their business. If the Federa
tion "high brows" want to find where
to get off at let them start right out
trying to organize "scab" unions. We
believe the Bricklayers ought to af
filiate, but if the A. F. of L. wants to
start something, just let it begin the
little job of coercing.
Swanson A. Swanson, father of Gus
Swanson, one of the prominent mem
bers of the local Bricklayers' Union,
died at the home of his son, 2786 E
Street last Monday. Mr. Swanson was
79 years old, and for some time had
suffered greatly from Bright's disease.
All that loving hands could do was
done to make easy his last hours. The
good old father sank to sleep with the
faces of many of his loved ones around
him. The funeral services were held
at the United Brethren church, Eigh
teenth and N streets, Thursday after
noon, and interment was in Wyuka.
Three sons and three daughters sur
vive. To them, and especially to
"Gus," the heartfelt sympathy of the
trades unionists of Lincoln is extended.
