Cfurtir.c aside the advice of C. I Shamp
and other bulwarks of organized labor,
the Central Labor union In open meeting
last ntght 'voted by a biff majority to send
a committee 'of two j to i. Lincoln to wait
upon the governor and tho chief deputy
commlssfoner of labor to Inform them of
tho nonenforcement of the labor laws In
Omaha and the attitude which tho ap
pointive officers of the present adminis
tration have taken.
"Labor Commissioner Pool has abso
lutely refused to enforce the laws here
regulating the employment of female
labor, and particularly the laws which
limit the employment of women to nine
hours a day; he has even gone further
and told the deputy factory Inspectors
here to put the 'soft pedal' on certain
factories, and, above all, to abstain from
making any political enemies." said W.
A. Chrlsman, who started the movement
at the meeting at the labor temple last
"I suggest and demand that this or
ganization pass a resolution empowering
the president to appoint a committee of
two to watt on the governor and Mr.
Pool and Inform them, that we Insist on
either thie enforcement of the law or the
resignation of that man Pool.

know that Commissioner Pool knows that
tho law regarding tho employment of
women is being violated in Omaha, and
we know further that he has refused to
enforce It Fool has contended all along
to us that he has the authority to prose
cute the cases, but that he has not been
empowered to collect the evidence or In
vestigate the cases.
"We know that he has been Informed of
speciflo cases of violation of the law

the action td prosecute them.

girls and women are working twelve and
fourteen hours a day, and that Pool has
been informed of the facts in the case.
"Our former experience in police court
has shown that this is not tho place to
bring the prosecutions. The county at
torney has promised that when the evi
dence of two competent witnesses is
placed with him he will prosecute the
cases. Therefore, it seems to me that the
proper place for the filing of the cases
is the county court rather than the police
"Of course, there are many employers
who would laugh at a $S0 fine. The thing
for us to do Is to see that there are a
dozen or so counts In each case, and then
they would sit up and take notice.
"We should make the present officials
of the state tako some stand on law
enforcement when Mr. Morehead came
to Omaha seeking election, he came to
us as a working man, and we believed
him when he said that he would enforce
the laws of the state. He is the ex
officio commissioner of labor of the stato
of Nebraska. Pool Is only his henchman.
the deputy state labor commissioner,
Therefore, I suggest that the committee
bo appointed to see both the governor
and hla appointee, so that that the real
man responsible for this condition be ap
prised of the facts in the case."
Then the conservative element of the
union was busy. C. L. Shamp and other
labor leaders made many speeches In an
effort to convlnco tho delegates to the
Central Labor union that they were
wrong in taking up the battles of those
who were not members of organized
labor, participating in the benefits of the
central organization. When tho men still
insisted on championing the cause of the
women workers, another tack was taken.
to convlnco the members that It was not
an .official action of the union, because
of the fact that this was an open meet
ing, Instead of a scheduled meeting. How.
ever, the progressive element won, and
as a result, an overwhelming vote In
favor of the appointment of the commit
tee resulted. v
W. A. Chrlsman and John Pollan were
appointed to carry the message of organ-'
lzed tabor to Lincoln, and Mr. Dean was ,
selected as alternate. i
Both members of tho committee Insisted
that they would be supplied with ample
data of specific instances of violation of
the Jaw In Omaha, before they attempted
to present the caso to the governor and
his deputy labor commlsslonerf

HARMONY should be tho keynote for tho decoration of home. Furn
ishings should be artistic and, In order to acquire this characteristic,
they must bo chosen with a view to their harmonious relatlonjylth
other furnishings to be used In proximity. It is not nocessarjrthat
all furniture in the samo roomie of precisely tho Bame kind and '
and style in order to secure harmony. In fact, an unusually ploaslng effect
is sometimes obtained by the use of odd pieces well arranged.
When the "no-period" style of Interior decoration 1b used, It is pos
sible utilize many old-time pieces of furnituro to good Advantage. Pieces
having the same general contour, color and other characteristics in common
should be chosen from the collection and used together. When furnituro
of this type is employed in furnishing tho homo, the hangings, floor cover
ings, upholstery fabrics and wall coverings should bo carried out as far as
possible in shades of one color. Variety will bo furnished by tho miscel
laneous collection of furnituro, old tapestries, antiques in brass-waro, lamp
shades and other articles.
Furnituro of the old Now England type 1s popular at tho present time.
Copies of old pieces made up without upholstery are much used for cottages
and country homes. Strength, durability and grace are characteristic of
these reproductions.. Such furniture finished in shades of brown, gray or,
white enamel to match the color scheme of the various rooms is particularly
good for the upper portion of the house. It Is practical and does away with .
the necessity of much polishing which is a nuisance in tho country home.
Canework is seen a great deal in these chairs, couch-backs and bed head
boards. This adds to the lightness and beauty of the furniture. Eliza
bethan and Jacobean styles In chairs, tables and other articles are bolng
suggested by architects and Sheraton furnfture 1b also popular.
Numerous chairs handed down from tho early days are being usod in
modern homes. Theso chairs are of many periods, from tho "turned"
chairs, the first found in America, to the rocking chair invented by Benja
min Franklin and the easy chair of a little later period. Rush bottoms
and slat, or comb backs are characteristic of theso, which include, besides'
the American models, tho early Dutch, French and Windsor types. In many
homes, along with these, antiques are used for lighting fixtures and they
add much to the beauty of the rooms. Old lamps, candle-sticks, lanterns
and torches are among the types shown. Old cliesta of drawers, tho bureau,
tho high cupboard and tho old "highboy" of tho early days are among tho
unlquo pieces seen in somo homes.
Fainted furnituro, the product of the middle ages, has becomo popular
again In somo circles. Copies of Adam, Heppelwhlto and Sheraton patterns
are sultablo for bedrooms and drawing rooms, especially in summer homes.
. Painted satinwood pieces are popular, but not practical as they are not dur
able. Lacquered work following Queen Ann designs Is coming into voguo.
Old bedsteads are much sought after for the modern home. Of theso tho
four-poster of tho lato eighteenth century type, is considered tho best. '
NRarc Chippendale models are considered a luxury. Those have slender col
umns, carved finals, a tester and peculiar old-fashioned curtains. Any
number of old Dutch, French and English bedsteads are Interesting fea
tures of collections of today and many of these are seen in the up-to-dato

furniture, whether antique or modern. Upon tho propor treatment of tho
rooms depends the ultimate effect. If caro is taken, usually good rosults
may be obtained.
