"We nut not wait for deep waterways
and the Panama canal We must not wait
for the Intercontinental railroad, which la

"Tel wa sold to you last year goods
amounting to 170.000.000 only while we bought

your best clients."
Speaking of the, Canadian forests and tha

NEW YORK. Oct. 21 An three of New
York's mayoralty candidates, William V.
Hearst, Otto T. Banna rd and William J.
Gaynor, were In the field again tonight
hammering away with campaign speeches,
with election day bat nine days away.
Hearst delivered two speeches In Brook
lyn, having crossed the East river for the
first time since the campaign opened.
Bannard, still sticking strictly to business
Issues and speaking briefly, addressed seven
mass meetings on the East Side. Gaynor
spoke at Long Island City and at Flush
ing. An attack on Gavnor constituted full a
third of Hearst's Brooklyn speeches. He
dwelt on the fact that Judge Gaynor had
raid In his recent address at Tammanr
hall that he had not been aware of the
location of tha famous wigwam before that
'When Judge Gaynor says he foes not
know where Tammany hall Is." said Mr.
Hearst, "be Is either singularly Insincere
or singularly Ignorant. But I can ten yon
one thing. Judge Gaynor may not know
where Tammany hall stands, but Tammany
hall knows wbere Judge Gaynor stands,
or they would never have nominated him."
Toward tha end of his address Hearst
disclosed an ambition of his to add to his
already great string of newspapers by es
tablishing one In Brooklyn. Of this be
"Before my nomination I was Just pre
paring to start a newspaper In Brooklyn
to grow with this great borough and fight
for your Interests. If I am elected mayor
I shall have to, of course, give up this
particular plan, but I shall do all I can
as mayor to serve you."
On the East Side Mr. Bannard said. In
'Tammany has no genius for government,
only for graft. I bought a dozen type
writer Ink erasers the other day for X
cents, while the city of New York paid
for this Identical article with your money
C M a dosen. The War department of the
United States government purchased the
same thing of the same kind for only 23
cents a dosen. I am a business man. who
expeets to beat Gaynor for mayor because
the people are tired of Tammany hall and
Charley Murphy. Hearsts candidacy la
helping me and he will come In a cheerful
Bannard'a prediction that Hearst will
come In third is practically hia first refer
ence to the editor during the campaign,
although Hearst has attacked Bannard bit
terly. Both are heading the same fusion

An aggressive campaign against the
street railway company on the part of
the strikers, with restrictive legislation as
the chief coercive force, was the promise
of W. D. Mahon. president of the Inter
national anion. In an address made before
a nan meeting held at Waahlngton hall
Friday night. The plans for this move
ment have been evolved largely alnce the
arrival of Mr. Mahon. who has given the
' union men a systematized plan of action.
It ts said that Jacob Le Bosky of Chi
cago, attorney for the International union,
is to come to Omaha to take charge of
the legal affairs connected with the con
templated action of the strikers.
Ths fight as outlined by President
Mahon includes sn attack based on the
franchise rights of the company in both
Omaha and Council Bluffs, the question
cf hours of tabor and alleged violations of
President Mahon touched but lightly
upon the I sues of the Omaha strike and
reviewed at length the history of trade
unionism In the United States.
"It has been said that trade anions are
detrimental to tha beat dtlsenshlp." said
Mr. Mahon. "If. cheap men and cheap
women in the industrial world made a great
country, China and Japan would long ago
have been in the vanguard of the inarch
of modern progress.
"The first trade anions were organised
in US. Then men were working from
sunrise to sundown In the summertime and
by candle light at both enda of the day
in the winter. The constitution had been
in effect for thirty-five years. This con
stitution guaranteed to these people the
right of life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness. Even then ehjldren were slav

men who laid out the city of Washington
were paid at the rate of S7 a year. Then

"Ths employers said that the unions
would destroy the young republic, but they
didn't. They haven't yet. By IBS the
wages of the working people had been In
