Within a week It. Is expected that the
new manual training department of the
South Omaha High school will be In full
operation at tho new quarters, Twenty
fourth and J streets. Tho new depart
ment is a late departure In the local
high school and Is being Introduced un
der the combined approval of the school
hoard and Superintendent N, M. Gra
ham. During several recent trips to the
east Superintendent Graham male In
vestigations of manual training where
It has been adopted. At the closing ex
ercises a year ago he publicly Insisted
upon the ned of such a department In
the South Omaha school district.
President 12. R. Leigh and the mem
bers of the board after carefully study
ing the situation decided to spend sev
eral thousand dollars on Ihe new de
partment. It 1b especially designed to
assist those high school students who
have not the aptitude to continue their
academic studies at the university or
who Intend to pursue some trade as a
means of livelihood.
For the present the students will be
given the rudlmsnlary work in wood
craft and machine work. Later, how
ever, It Is hoped that the Idea will blos
som Into a trade school Where the young
high school graduate may fit himself
for a means of livelihood while at the
samo time developing his mind In the
academic branches. Heretofore many of
the South Omaha High school boys have
gone Into laboring work or Into a poorly
paid clerkship because tV.ey were unable
to attend the university or because they
could not afford the extra time needed
to learn a trade. It Is hoped that the
trade school will allow the student to
complete the regular school work and
enough of the trade apprenticeship to
enable htm to need but & short time un
der a Journeyman after he quits or
graduates ' from school.

Tom Maun of London delivered on nd
drois to a large' audtctico last night In
Washington hall on "Industrial folldar
ity." He pleaded for tho combined or
ganisation or all unions and told or the
results In tho past In failure to organlzi
aul totd of tho results gained by organ
isation. Ono Instance that he cited wot
what he termed tho "war of the -folded
arms" on the part of tho sailors and all
men who work on board ship which oc
curred two years ago.
"Time was whon there was opportunity
for the working classes. Time was when
tho worklngmen were told they might
graze their cattle on the public lands In
England. But It would be folly to tell
them that now, for the worklngmen have
no cattle and there Is no moro public
land In England. That was 600 years
ago, when workmen organized In guilds.
Then there was a perfect harmony be
tween, employer and employe. The men
went about wllh their work with no bitter
hatred In their hearts for the moneyed
class. WhyT Ilecnuse the worklngmen
decided under what conditions and scale
of wages they would work. It was then
that the (treat cathedrals and public
buildings were erected, such as pose to
day as the acme of architecture. They
attempt at times In the present day to
duplicate those remarkable works ot
architecture, but the result Is a poor
copy. The men feel oppressed, and when
men feel oppressed they cannot do good
"Wo will come to those conditions
again that we observe In the mldJIc
ages. But we will have to organize. We
cannot reach that condition through an
appeal to the capitalistic class. We will
not appeal to the governments, to the
Judiciary or to the churches, There Is
no assistance there. The onjy solution
Is within ourselves. It we cannot save
ourselves we are lost."

Our reverence for Mrs. Harriet StAnton
Hlntch, who writes to the newspapers. Is
so profound that wo ha'a never doubted
the ultimate success or that surprising
woman In her search for tho causes of
feminine subjugation. We have somo
times felt It necessary to conceal our
veneration, but It has been there all the
same, and now at last comes Its Justifi
cation. Mrs. Blatch has Just returned from a
sutrrago tour, and she says that hence
forth every woman must have a pocket.
She tells us that she feels strongly on
tho pocket question. " And I have one
even In my evening gowns. I don't
wear my skirts as tight as aome people,
but I don't believe there ever was a
skirt made that didn't have a place for
n pocket somewhere."
Now-here Mrs. Blatch spoko without
that mature deliberation that we usually
associate, with her utterances, She should
always count ten as a remedy for a
tendency to empetuoslty In speech. When
the detective In the novels Is trying to
I find the secret chamber he alwaya takes
me ouisian measurements of the house
and then proceeds to account for tho
space by measuring the rooms, haltii and
stairways. We are not able practically
to apply the same rule In the search for
tho woman's pocket, or rather for thfc
space where It might be placed. Heaven
forbid that we should try. We are ot
the male sex and therefore bashful,
modest and retiring, but we have
our eyesight and we think our little
thoughts. We cannot for the life of us
Imagine where such a pocket could be

Only last week we saw a woman In n,
diaphanous skirt. We were behind her,
and the glorious orb of day was Just
ahead or her. She was a most trans
parent and confiding disposition, and al
though we hurried rapidly down a side
sldo street to hide our mantling blushes
we saw enough to convince us that thero
was no room for a pocket In that skirt.
There was no room for a one-cent stamp.
There was barely room for tho lady her
self. In a moment ot vertigo we caught
ourselves wondering how she ever got Into
