rr. W. H. Wilson has been reappointed
state health Inspector by the State Board
of Health. The salary la $1,800 a year.
The late democratic legislature attempted
to legislate Dr. Wilson out Of offloe, but
In Its efforts to get every offloe in sight
It made a mistake and amended the wrong
aection of the law, and thus one offloe was
saved for an entire board to fill instead
of Just the governor.

Hon. Peter Mortensen. former slate treas
urer, was In Lincoln today enroute home
to Ord after having accompanied his son

"I feel better than I have for a long
time," aatd Mr. Mortensen. "My aon
wanted to develop bla muscles In order to
stand a chance to get on the foot ball
team, so he went to work on a farm. We
got an automobile and went out together,
and I worked with him. The result la
both of ua built up our musolee.
"I hear Borne politics, but I have no Idea
who will be the strong man in a primary
for a' nomination for governor on tha re
publican ticket. I believe that Senator E.
P. Brown of Lancaster county would be
a logical candidate if the fact that he Uvea
In Lincoln would not operate against him."
Mr. Mortensen said he had no desire to
get In the race, as Valley county already
haa one candidate, though Mr. Fries has
not aaid on what ticket he will run. Sen
ator Cady, Mr. Mortensen thought might
also get Into the race, though he had noth
ing to base hla presumption upon Insofar
aa direct knowledge la concerned.
Lights for Capitol Oronnds.
Former Mayor Brown was at the state
house this morning to get a blue print
of the grounds showing the position of
the electric lights that are shortly to be
up. The former mayor la going to aee
to it that the city erects lights at the
corners of the grounds, something he has
been trying to get done for many years,
but . which the city of Lincoln has con-
a'.stently refused to do. Now that the state
la preparing to light the grounds the city
Is going to light Its streets at the corners
of the grounds.
The claim was made at the meeting that
the expenses about equalled the Income
and little or nothing was being put by
for an Increasing mortality. The auditor
Informed the delegates that the cost of
the Insurance would continue to increase
and he, insisted on providing for mortuary
income. The auditor Insisted upon the re
peal of the present law which permits of
the transfer of any of the mortuary fund
to the general fund to pay expenses.
The speech of the auditor was ordered
printed so that tha delegates would be fa
miliar with the facts when they take It
up to discuss his suggestions at the execu
tive meeting tomorrow.

robbery of the till of Leo Lung s Chinese
Bon Ton" restaurant have been dis
charged, no evidence having been found

You've often been Importuned and many
have been commanded by advertisement or
otherwise to "refuse to buy anything un
less it bears the union label."
Looks harmless on Its face, doesn't It?
It really Is a "demand" that you boy
cott the products made by over 80 per
cent of our American worklngmen and
women who decline to pay fees to, , and
obey the dictates of the union leaders.
It demands that you ask the merohant
for articles with the "union label," thus
to Impress him with Its Importance.
It seeks to tell you what to buy and
what to refuse. The demands are some
times most Insolent with a "holler than
It demands that you take away the liv

Why ahould a email body of workmen

There must be soma reason for , the

Run over In your mind and remember
how they carry on their work.
During a discussion about working or
striking in the coal regions, about 24,
000 men preferred to work, they had wives
and babtea to feed. Thjnon men said
openly In their convention that if the em
ployers didn't discharge" these men they
(the union men) would; kl? them.
So they dynamited about, a dosen homes,
maimed and crippled women and children
and brutally assaulted aoorea ot these in
The big boys of the union wore taught
to pound the school children of the Inde
pendent men. How would you like to have
your little girl shortly grown from the
toddling baby who used to sit on your lap
and love 'iDaddy" pounded by some big
bullies on bar way home from the school
where she had gone to try and please
Daddy by learning to read?
The little bruised face and body would
first need tender care while you ponder
the inscription writ deep In your heart by
that Maater and Guide to gll human com
passion, "Inasmuch as ye have done It
unto one of the least of these my brethern
ye have done It unto me." Then per
haps you would drop to your knees and
pray Almighty God for atrength In your
right arm to strike one manly and pow
erful blow for baby'a sake, even if you
went to death for it
Helpless children were brought home,

From somewhere. Oh Father. of ua all,

Iron ahod heels, cut by knlvea or torn
asunder by bullets and dynamite?
May we venture to think that a long
suffering patience la extended In the hope
that the men and women of America
may some day wake to a realisation of
the awful crueltlea pereptrated by thla
spirit of oppression and that they will
some day learn the lesson that the "sac
red gift of human freedom and liberty"
was given by God and must be defended
even to death Itself..
Our forefathers wre used by the Infi
nite God to establish our freedom in 1T76,
and our fathers gave freely of their blood
and treasure to establfah the freedom of
the black. Now again it seems we are
called upon to protect our brothers and
ourselves from that old time spirit of
tyranny which comes up from time to
time to force the people to obey tyran
nous rules and bend the knee of the slave.

Thla cruel warfare la carried on not al
ways to raise wages, but to establish
union control, kick out the Independent

Unfortunately the "Labor movement"

lot of tyrannical, vicious "men of violent
There are too many to attempt to name.
You can recall them. They Include men
who have planned the murders of miners,
teamsters, pressmen and carpenters, shoe
makers and Independent workmen of all
kinds. Many of them have escaped hang

juries became terror stricken and dared
not convict them.
Some have been punished slightly and

Right here some apologist rises to pro
test against "speaking thus of laboring
men." Blesa your dear heart 1 isn't the
honest and real workman who does these
things. It is the excitable onea and the
tougha and thuga who don't work except
with their mouths, but have secured con
trol of too many unions. I don't even at
tempt to specify the criminal acts thsse
persons have aaslsted or winked at in
their plan for destroying free working
men and forcing men to stay in the
"union" and hence under their control.
The newspapers for the past aeven years
contain almost daily accounts of the
criminal, lawless and tyrannical acts
against American cttlsens and haven't
told half the tale. Right here It becomes
necessary to aay for the ten thousandth
time that there are scores of honest law
abiding union men who deplore and are
In no way responsible for the long in
famous record of the "Labor Trust" under
Its present management, but they don't
seem to stop it.
The men who manage, who pull the
strings and guide the policy have made
the record and it stands, as made by them.
Examine, if you please, the record of
a string of members of the American
Federation of Labor and you will view a
list of crimes against Americans, stupen
dous beyond belief. They defy the laws,
sneer at the courts, incite mobs and are
avowed enemlea of the peaceable cltlxens
of all classes.
This band wields an Iron bar over their
subjects and drives them to idleness
whenever they want to call a strike or
exact extra pocket money for themselves.
Men don't wsnt to be thrown out of
work and lose their livelihood, but what
can they do when the slugging and mur
dering committee stands always ready to
"do them" If they try to work.
L The poor women and helpless children
suffer and no one dares present their
case to the public. They must suffer in
silence for they have no way to right
their wrongs, while the notoriety-seeking
leaders csrry out their work.
These men cannot thus force oppres
sion on the weak and Innocent or use
them to bring newspaper notice to them
selves and money to their pockets unless
they can "hold them In line."
Therefore, with the craft of the fox
and venom of the serpent they devise
the "union label" and tell the public to
buy only articles carrying the label.

the employees get hungry enough from
lack of wages the workers must suppli
cate the union leaders to be "allowed" to
pay their fines (for not becoming mem

to the purse-fat managers of the Labor

Perhaps you have noticed lately that

Some "parlor socialist' who knows
nothing of the Russian Csarlsm of the
great Labor Truat will ask right here:
"Don't you believe In the right of certain
workmen to "organize." Oh yes, brother,

When you see work of this kind being
done call on or write the prosecuting offl

But yon. Why don't you strike out and
demand defense for your fellows?
Put your prosecuting officers to the
test and Insist that they do their sworn

public everyone must be jealous of the

gain power for personal aggrandisement.
