"Yes," I says, "two of them, but it
looks like I wouldn't last."
Meets Up With Runkel.
So he didn't laugh enough to suit
me and the next guy I run into was
Mr. Runkel that's got stock in the
Cubs and Senator Sherman.
"What do you thing of our
chances?" he asked iwe.
"You'll be alt right when Saier
starts hitting," I replied.
"I mean what do you think of Sher
man's chances?" he asked me.
"What position does be play?" I
asked him back.
"He is running for president," he
Oh," says I, "you mean he is run
ning for president of the United
States. I am for Roosevelt," I says.
"Why?" he asked me.
"Because I wrote song about
htm," I says, "and give him the name
of the song and publisher."
Wnls Hot Argument.
"Why don't you write about a live
one?" he asked me.
And then we got into a political
argument and 1 got the best of it. It
"They call this a government by
the people," I says. "But fifteen out
of every twenty people wants to vote
for Roosevelt, but they can't because
the delegates probably wo"'t nomi
"That's bunk," he says. "The dele
gates no matter how they're in
structed must please the people that
elected them delegates. It's the peo
ple that decides." 1
"Yes," 1 says, "I suppose that
Homer Taft got nominated in 1914, or
whenever it was."
."That's different," he says, and
walked away from me.
But I ran into him later on and
talked base ball and parted friends.
Then I made it up in my mind that
there was no news to be got in the
hotel and started out and run into
some of the delegates from Mary
land. We got up an informal quartet
and sung ''Brown Skin Where You
Stumbles on a Secret.
'But couldn't come back to the
ofiice without no politics, and I
hunted around till I tound out what
the convention was about to tell the
You see they're here to nominate
a president to succeed Mr. Wilson.
It looks now like they would be a

through the residence district of the
city brought the ad men to the
Country club, where they took
time for nine holes of golf o- time
for more automobiling or resting, just
as the guests felt inclined.

TO VARIOUS JOBS
Men Who Have Been on a Strike Re
sume Work After Three
MAY GET MORE PAY LATER
Building activities began in earnest
again Monday in Omaha, after the
building laborers' strike had retarded
work for some three weeks.
Though no official agreement is an
nounced, the laborers say they are
getting 30 and 35 cents an hour, but
that none of the contractors would
agree to pay them 40 cents, as they
demanded in some cases.
No recognition of the union was
effected by the laborers, who made
this as one of their demands at first,
but later agreed to waive this point
for the present if the increase were
V. Ray Gould, president of the
Omaha Builders' exchange, says that
the men, so far as he knows, are go
ing to work at the same wage they
were receiving before the strike.
More Money On New Jobs.
There is much talk of the contrac
tors paying more money on whatever
new jobs they figure in the future,
even if they do not grant so much of
an increase on the old jobs. Mr.
Gould denies, however, that any such
understanding even has been reached.
. It is estimated over 30() men re
sumed work after being off for some
Sixty men went to work on the
Ford Motor company's big assem
bling plant at Sixteenth and Cuming
stieets, and things were fairly abuzz
Work on Many Buildings.
Laborers began work at the First
National Bank building, where the
brick and terra cotta work started
again where it left off three weeks
ago. Other jobs on which work was
resumed are the Masonic Temple, the
Sanford hotel, the Castle hotel, the
Ford hospital, and work on several
apartment houses. The laborers who
have beeft off work on the street car
line laying gang on North Twenty
fourth street for the last two or three
weeks, went bak to work this morn
ing. Hig gangs of laborers appeared for
work at these various jobs, and a
number had to be turned away the
first morning, as contractors say after
a job stands idle for three weeks it
is impossible to put a full force to
work the first morning the work is
resumed. They say more men will be
taken m during the next few days.
