WENDELL PHILLIPS SAID.
And What He Said Union Men Should
Wendell Phillips was engaged in
one of the greatest struggles for hu
man emancipation. He was one of
the greatest anti-slavery agitators.
When slavery had been wiped out, he
gave his attention to another great
emancipation movement that of ta
bor. In April, 1S72, he spoke before the
International Grand Lodge of the
Knights of St. Crispin. His words are
peculiarly applicable to tile situation
in thu country today:
"if you want power in this country;
il you want yourselves felt; if you do
not want your children to wait long
years before they have the bread on
the table they ought to have, the
leisure in their lives they ought to,
have, the opportunities in life they
ought to have; if you don't want to
wait yourselves, write on your banner,
so that every political trimmer can
read it, so that every politician, no
matter how short sighted Be may be,
enn read it: "We never forget. If
you launch the arrow of sarcasm at
labor, we never forget. If there is a
division in congress and you throw
your vote in the wrong scale, we never
forget. You may go down on your
knee.-! mid eay, "I am sorry I did not
act," and we will say, "It will avail
you in heaven, but on this side of the
grave never." So that a man, in tak
ing up the labor question, will know
he is dealing with a hair-trigger pistol
and will say, 'I am to be true to jus
tice r.rd to man; otherwise I am a
dead duck." "

To begin with we find joss-sticks,

They're all admitted free of duty.
Then there are birds' eggs, lemon

Then comes bones, acorns, ashes,

The transfer service in any city
has much to do wtih trade and com
merce. If inferior the wheels of in
dustry are clogged and traffic, in
a business, sense, impeded. Travelers
especially find serious inconvenience
when transfer service is inadequate.
Delays, so common before, are now
done away with and a telephene call
to this company now brings a wagon
to your door and baggage no longer
worries you, or the care of your fur
niture and the storage of anything
you desire stowed away is given im
mediate and careful attention, thus
giving you a service that is without
equal. This company hauls large
freight and in total have brought the
jobs together when out of work, are
locked out together when they begin
to show a little spirit of independence;
but they never vote together. If they
would stop "scabbing" on each other
on election days' they could accom
plish more in a few years than they
can accomplish in a lifetime by cling
ing to political party prejudice. From
In the upbuildin of cities in any
portion of the world the same ele

large manufacturing and other indus
trial enterprises and were it not for
the really wonderful fores feht and
daring of some of the leaders in each
city ttle material progress ;of ithe
country as a whole would be retard

usually anticipated. The city of Lin

CANNOT BE EXPLAINED.
It has been proved beyond the ques
tion of a doubt that men cannot work
with profit to themselves or their em
ployers more than eight hours1 a day.
Yet big employers shut their' eyes
tightly to these scientific facts and
fight the reduction of hours that mean
more for them as well as their men,
as if they were fighting invasion of
their homes. The hatred and bitter
ness with which some employers re
sist to the last the reasonable and just
demands of fellowmen for shorter
hours, is one of the inexplicable
things in social science. Portland La
transfer business in Lincoln to a de
gree of perfection seldom attained,
and the charges are reasonable. The
office of this company is located at
the Lincoln Hotel annex, where they
wlil be pleased to take your order at
any time and you are assured of only
first class service. It is the only gov
ernment bonded transfer line in Lin
coln and is an incorporated forward
ing and distributing agent. They
make a business of packing, moving
and storing of household goods. They
are also retailers of coal and wood.
