KENNEDY SAW A TEMPLE
(Frank Kennedy in Western Laborer.)
We have heard so much talk about
.Lincoln's new Labor Temple that we
went down to see it last Saturday. To
,say we were surprised at what the
capitol city union , men have done
would not at all express our feelings.
It la the same old story we have told
time 'end time again. The best things
ever done by union men for them
selves are the things that are done for
the love of the cause and not for pay.
Two years ago a few enthusiastic
souls among Lincoln's probable two
thousand union men began the agita
tion for a Labor Temple. After two
years of effort $300 was raised. Last
fall these brave and courageous pro
moters ran into a building bargain. It
was a two-story brick building about
44x90 in a yart of the city that would
be about where the Burwood theater
is situated in Omaha. The building
was run down some and its outside
appearance is not so very handsome.
The price asked by its owner was $20,
000 for building and ground. The pro
moters of the Labor Temple consid
ered the matter awhile and concluded
to risk the chance of the union men
backing them up, so they borrowed
$100 and. with the $900 they had on
hand, paid $1,000 down to bind the
bargain. On December 1 they were to
pay $2,000. How the committee was
to raise that money was not dreamed
of when the first payment was made.
The Lord being on the side of the just
and brave, in due time light came to
,the committee. They took the bit in
their teeth and went out right square
up to the business men of Lincoln and
said: "Gentlemen, we have paid
$1,000 as our first payment in buying
a home for labor. We have agreed to
pay $20,000 for it. We must raise
$2,000 by the first of December. We
want you to buy $100 worth of stock
in this building, with the distinct un
derstanding that we can buy back the
stock from you when we are in shape
to do so. The building and ground
are worth $20,000. You can't lose.
Give us a lift." J
In five days this voluntary commit
tee raised $4,200, enough to meet the
-December and February payments.
Then the next thing was to make
the building habitable. The Plumbers, 1
Electrical Workers, and Painters and
Decorators agreed to do all the work
of their line free if the material was
furnished. The business men in those
Jines furnished either free or at half
rate all material for repairs, decorat
ing and painting. The committee was
so pleased to be able to meet in a
building which was their very own
that they sat on nail kegs and trans
acted their business in the "directors'
The electrical workers, plumbers
and painters set to work with their
hearts full of enthusiasm. The result
of their labor speaks for itself. The
halls in the Lincoln Labor Temple are
the most tastily decorated, the' best
lighted, the neatest furnished and
cleanest labor halls that we have ever
seen in any city we have ever been in
in the country. There is a row of
opera chairs around the hall with a
hat holder under each one. The altars,
secretary's desks and president's
chair and stand are in keeping with
the best furnished lodge halls in the
country. The banners and charters
are artistically hung on the artistic
ally decorated walls. The cuspidors
are new and immaculately clean. The
ante-rooms are clean and furnished in
keeping with the halls. The plumbing
Is up to date.
There are four halls, upstairs; the
directors' room would remind one of
a bank directors' room. This room is
used by the Typographical Union Aux
iliary and furnished by it.
On the ground floor is one large
room that is used for a dance hall.
Next to that is the office of the Tem
ple manager, II r. O. M. Rudy, of the
W. A. Campbell, international finan-.
cier, was in Lincoln during February,
and while here audited the books of
Local No. 143. Some time ago the
local had a member who embezzled
funds of the union, and for a time
this threw the books out of shape. But
everything is now in shape and the
local is square with itself, the world
and the international. R. B. Massey
Is the man charged by Mr. Campbell
with having embezzled the union's
funds, but he does not state what the
amount was. No. 143 now has a good
ly sum in the hank.
There are five cigarmakers' unions
in Nebraska at the present time.
There would be more, and the mem
bcrshlp of the existing locals would be
largely increased if union men would
unite in a demand for the blue label.
Union cigarmakers Insist upon their
fellows "playing the game square."
The member who jumps a hoard bill
or fails to pay his other debts, soon
finds himself in trouble with the
electrical workers' union; the cigar
stand, candy stand and office room of
The Lincoln Wageworker. In the
rear are three pool and billiard tables.
This room is also furnished in. the
most up-to-date workmanship of the
eleetrical worker, plumber and paint
er and decorator.
In the rear of the billiard room is
a small lunch room. This feature is
merely an experiment, but it may
prove one of the most profitable fea
tures of the Temple if properly han
dled. The Labor Temple is opposite one
hotel and next door to another. Just
across the street on the corner, the
Commercial club this year is to erect
their home, which will enhance -very
materially the value of labor's prop
erty. Mr. Rudy informed us that the rules
of the Temple prohibited intoxicating
liquors. A union man caught drink
ing from a bottle is barred from the
privileges of the Temple. "Panhand
ling" is also prohibited. Both these.
rules, Mr. Rudy said, were religiously
enforced and splendidly obeyed.
This week they inaugurate a new
thing in Labor Temple, by reserving
Wednesday afternoons for the wives of
union men to play billiards or pool.
This also is an experiment, but it goes
to show how pleased the union men
are with their own temple they al
low their wives to enjoy its pastime
The promoters of the Temple say it
has made a wonderful change in the
union men of Lincoln; that they hold
their heads just a little higher; that
it has attracted the attention of those
mechanics who never affiliated with
the union of their crafts and added
five hundred new members in less than
three months. Why not? In ten years
the property will be worth $40,000.
The promoters are now organizing
a club of five hundred men who will
pledge themselves to pay $1 per month
for one year. This will create a fund
to meet the 1912 payment when it
comes due. There is a note of $3,000
to be met next October, but the men
are not worrying about that. They
say they will find a way to meet it.
The agitation tor this splendid en
terprise of the Lincoln union men was
carried on in The Wageworker, edited
by Will Maupin. Columns upon col
umns of matter was printed, boosting,
pleading, promoting, week after week;
sometimes when it seemed like a hope
less task, but pounding all the time
until now the result of that agitation
is the "realization of Will Maupin's
highest ambition the union men of
Lincoln own their own Labor Temple.
The Temple has soli fled the union
movement of Lincoln.' ther are no
dissentions in the ranks, all are prouc
of their Temple, and they have rea
son to be.
The men who are entitled to the
credit for working out the plans to put

The cigarmakers have long been
talking albout building a home, but
It now looks as if they were soon to
vote on the proposition. It is pro
posed to levy an assessment of $3
payable at the rate of 25 cents
month, for one year, on all 30 and 15
cent members, to provide funds for
building and equipping the home, the
maintenance to ba provided thereafter
by assessments along the same lines
as now followed by the printers. The
matter will soon be submitted to the
OHIO PRISON PRINTING.
The employing printers Of Ohio are
un In aims against reports that'the
state administration is violating its
contracts with printing companies
having large contracts for doing the
state printing and placing same in
the Mansfield Reformatory and the
Ohio state penitentiary. Several large
jobs of state printing have been done
in these institutions recently and it is
feared that the work of the codifying
commission, a large piece of printing
to cost In the neighborhood of $50,000,
will be printed in the Ohio peniten
tiary. The locals of the Typographical
Union throughout the state will be re
quested to urge the assemblymen of
their districts to insist that the state

Meet and Discuss Ways and Means for
It has been realized, fully thai
monthly meetings of the board of di
rectors of the Labor Temple Associa
tion will not do. When the board me;
in monthly session last Monday nigh;
there was a bare quorum present. Ow
ing to illness in his family Secretary
Ihringer could not be present and
W. M. Maupin acted pro tern. Prac
tically no business was transacted
other than instructing the manager
to insure the furniture and fixtures of
the Temple for $1,000, taking the prop
osition submitted by Sam S. Whiting.
A committee consisting of Hale, Mc
Gurren and Maupin was appointed to
prepare and submit plans for the
"First Annual Labor Temple Benefit
Ball," with instructions to report next
Monday night. Then the directors
unanimously agreed to go back to the
weekly meetings until further notice.
For a solid month nothing has been
done, and the Temple's affairs are in
no shape to stand that sort of looking
after. Ways and means were discus
sed at length, and it was the unani
mous opinion of the directors present
that no further solicitation of business
men should be made. If the union
men do not come across and keep up
the payments, then theirs will be the
loss. Manager Rudy announced that
he would take care of the mortgage
payment due on the next day, March

OPEN SHOP EXPLAINED.
Mr. Dooley Gives "Hinnissey" Infor
mation About It.
"What is all this talk that's in the
papers about the open shop?" asked
"Why, don't ye know?" said Mr.
Dooley. "Really, I'm surprised at yer
ignerance, Hinnissey. Whut is th'
open shop? - Shure, 'tis a shop where
they kape th' door open t' accommo
date the consthant sthream of min
comin' in t' take jobs cheaper thin th'
min whut has th' jobs. 'Tis like this,
Hinnissey suppose wan o' these free
barn Amerycan citizens is wurkin' in
an open shop for th' princely wages
of wan large iron dollar a day of tin
hours. Along comes another freebarn
son-of-a-gun, an he sez t' th' hoss: 'I
think I could handle th' job for ninety
cints.' 'Sure' sez th' boss, an' the
wan-dollar man gets th' vmerry, jing-
lin' can, an' goes out into th' crool
wurld t' exercise his inalienable
roights as a freebarn Amerycan citi

Thrue, it saves th' boss money, but
he don't care no more for money than
he does for his roight eye. It's all

"But," said Mr. Hennessey, "these

$100 each from a bunch of easy ones.

TO TREAT STOMACH,
The new theory advanced by L. T.
Cooper relative to the human stomach
has attracted such widespread atten
tion that the public in cities visited by
the young man has been joined by
many physicians in a discussion of his
beliefs and medicines.
Mr. Cooper says human health is
dependent almost entirely upon the
stomach. He says that no disease can
be conquered without first alleviating
all stomach disorders. He furthersays
that most men and women of this gen
eration are half-sick owing to degen
erate stomachs. And lastly, he claims
that his New Discovery medicine will
rejuvenate the human stomach in 90
Cooper has been traveling from one
city to another, conducting In each
what he calls a campaign of educa
tion. For the past year he has met
the public in the larger cities of the
country, and his success has been
phenomenal. Thousands of people have
flocked to his headquarters wherever
he has gone, and the sale of his medi
cine has been beyond anything of the
kind ever before witnessed. '
Possibly the most interesting fea
ture of the attention this young man
has attracted is what his army of
followers, whom he has converted to
his' beliefs through his medicines, have
to say on the subject The following
statements are from two well-known
residents of Chicago and Boston, re
spectively, and the enthusiasm of
these is characteristic of Cooper's ad
mirers generally. -
Mrs. H. B. Mack, of 3201 State
street, Chicago, says: "I have been
suffering for 12 years from a combina
tion of stomach trouble, catarrh and
constipation. I had a gnawing pain
in the pit of my stomach, a sort of a
dull pain that I could not quite under
stand. Then there was a dull head
ache, and my mind seemed to be wan
dering continually. I could not eat,
and what little solid foOd I did eat I
could not retain on my stomach. I
tried every remedy I could think of,
and also tried out a number of patent
medicines, hut without any apparent
result. It was through one of my
friends that I heard of Cooper's prep
aration, and I immediately decided to
try some of it. It is two weeks since
I took my first dose of it, and I feel
like a new woman. The headache
seems to have disappeared, and the
pain in my stomach, along with it.
The medicine is worth its weight in
gold, and I want to thank Mr. Cooper
for what he has done for me."
Mr. Edwin F. Morse, of 20 Oakley
street, Dorchester, a suburb of Boston,
says: "For three years I had not a
well day. My stomach was in fright
ful shape; the mere thought of food
would nauseate me, and I really had a
horror of anything to eat. All solid
food would cause me extreme indiges
tion, bloating and gas on my stomach,
and nothing tasted right. Some time
ago I got some of this Cooper's medi
cine, about which there is so much
talk. I actually feel as well and strong
as a boy ever since the first bottle.
Every sign of stomach trouble has dis
appeared, and I have a hearty appe
tite and eat three square meals; every
thing seems to taste good. Anyone
who , knows what chronic indigestion
is can appreciate what this means to
me. I consider this the most remark
able medicine I ever heard of."

Leads the most intelligent people to use only medi

Dr. Pierce's medicines, the makers of which print
every ingredient entering into them upon the bottle
wrappers and attest its correctness under oath, are
daily growing in favor. No Sbcrbts. No Dbcbftion.
The composition of Dr. Pierce's medi
cines is open to everybody. Dr. Pierce -being
desirous of having the search
lieht of investigation turned fully upon
his formulae, being confident, ihat the better the composition of
these medicines is known the more will their great curative
merits be recognized. '
Being wholly made of the active medicinal principles extracted from native
forest roots, by exact processes original with Dr. Pierce, and without the uso
of a drop of alcohol, triple-refined and chemically pure glycerine being used in
stead in extracting and preserving the curative virtues residing in the roots
employed, these medicines are entirely free from the objection of doing harm
by creating an appetite for either alcoholio beverages or habit-forming drugs.
Examine the formula on their bottle-wrappers the same as sworn to by
Dr. Pierce, and you will find that his "Golden Medical Discovery," the great
blood-purifier, stomach tonio and bowel regulator the medicine which, while
not recommended to cure consumption in its advanced stages (no medicine wHI
do that) yet does cure all those catarrhal conditions of bead and throat, weak
stomach, torpid liver and bronchial troubles, weak lungs and hang-on-coughs.
which, if neglected or badly treated lead up to and finally terminate in con
sumption. Take the "Golden Medical Discovery" in time and it is not likely to dis
appoint you if only you give it a thorough and fair trial. Don't expect miracles.
It won't do supernatural thing. You must exercise your patience and per
severe in its use for a reasonable length of time to get its full benefits. The
ingredients of which Dr. Pfcrce's medicines are composed have the unqualified
endorsement of scores of n-edical leaders better than any amount of lay, or
non-professional, testimonials although the latter are received by thousands.
Don't accept a secret uostrum as a substitute for this time-proven remedy
op known composition. Ask voub nbighbors. They must know of many cures
made by it .during past 40 years, right in your own neighborhood.
