ROBERTS ON THE TYPOTHETAE
Gage Connty Herald Editor Say
Country Fnbllaher Are Opposed -to
E. T.. Roberts, publisher of the Gage
County Herald. Beatrice, who is also repre
sentative of the Western Publishing com
pany of Wilber, was In the city Friday.
"There Is a growing sentiment among
country publishers against the methods
employed by the Typothetae, the employing
printers' association, to Induce country
printers to come Into the city to take the
place of the uxiion men," said Mr. Roberts.
'Agents of ,th Typothetae are sent out
Into the smaller towns to look up ths best
printers, when they make' them flattering
offers to come Into the city. The arguments
useds are that the wages In cities like
Omaha are. SIS to $20, while the country
publisher only pays M to 91ft. These agents
say that living In the city Is cheaper, that
meals can be bought for IS cents, lodging
for tl a week, with much better advantages
and opportunities for smusement. .
"The propaganda work of th Typothetae
has caused a scarcity of printers In the
smaller towns, which Is forcing an Increase
of $2 to S3 per week In wages, which Is
more than most of the country publishers
can N afford to pay. Printers working In
smsller towns st $15 can save more money
than a man In the city at $30. There Is no
street car fare, while board and lodging Is
$3 per week less, and men are not dockt '
for loss of time when they happen to take
two or three hours to go fishing or to play
a game of ball, or an afternoon off 1 for a
picnic" , ' . i
