A KIND LETTER.
And Full of Suggestions That
Should Be Read.
Craig. Neb., Jan. 2. To the
Editor" of The Waweworker : I
enclose herewith $1 (check) for
renewal of my subscription to
The Wageworker. It is a splen
did paper, each issue being filled
with interesting matter, and ques
tions which are of vital interest
to the people of our state and na
tion. Your paper is worthy a
place in the home of every Ne
braskan. Not that I agree with
you in all you say, or with all I
see that is printed in The Wage
worker, for I do not. Yet I do
heartily endorse much of it, and
there is always so much food for
thought, stimulated with inspira
tion toward progressive measures
for the betterment of mankind in
your paper, that each issue be
comes more and more sought for
by me. Your poem, "In Nine
teen Hundred and 'Leven" (in
December 23 issue) and "New
Year's Resolutions" in December
SO issue, should be framed in gilt
binding and hung in the halls of
our legislature. There is much
that I would like to say to 3 011
pertaining to the welfare of the
rising generation. The public
press and its influence for goodand
evil ; the moving picture influence,
objectionable attractions at our
Nebraska State Fairs, and many
other questions which in my own
opinion are in need of a thorough
"airing." Yes, and the last word
in the above line brings to my
mind another question which is of
great importance, viz.: The peo
ple everywhere should be urged
(not only taught) to pay strict
attention to the proper ventila
tion and sanitary conditions of
their homes, especially to their
sleeping rooms. I cannot see for
the life of me, why so little atten
tion is paid to these matters bv
authorities of schools, and of all
public places where people con
gregate. I notice it the same
nearly everywhere I go. No one
seems to be required to look after
the proper ventilation of any pub
lic building. Neither do the peo
ple seem to be using enough can
tion relative to explosives. It is
terrible to behold, what careless
ness is practiced by so many in
their use of gasoline oil, matches
shooting arms. etc.. and the inno
cent must suffer the consequence
in every instance. I would lige to
see our law strictly enforced to
prevent any one but an officer
from carrying revolvers or con
cealed weapons of any kind. There
is no need of it. I have lived
here in Nebraska for a period of
nearly fifty-five years and have
never owneu nor carried a re
volver in my life. Neither would
T allow any of my six sons to own
or earn one. I would also like
to see a law passed to prevent the
rvmufacture and sale of all the
different kinds of toy pistols or

Recent Increase in Wages of
Trainmen Has Effect.
Wage increases to locomotive
engineers, conductor s and railway
trainmen on the road? west, north
and south of Chicago, which went
into effect Wednesday and Fri

Slayer of Sam Cox Must Remain
Behind the Bars.
Governor Shallenberger refused
point blank to either pardon or
commute the sentence of Ken-
nison. the Minatare "bootlegger"
who wantonlv killed Sam F. Cox.
The governor was provoked be

of several vehement protestants.

nrotestants were striving to nag
the governor into issuing a -par

use it against him for political efc
