Project of Organized
Woman's Label League Se
cures Leasa on Plant
,No Strike or Threat of Strike, Leads
to the Formation of This
irofeatcd In their efforts to unionize
tho steam laundries of the city the
Woman's La.bc! league and certain
members of tho Federation of Labor
ha'c started a co-operative laundry at
7C North Ninth West street.
This step marks a new tendency In
the evolution of organized labor and is
Inspired In a measure by the growth of
the Citizens Allla'nce. A year ago,
during t,hc lockout of tho building la
borers by the contractors, tho Build
ing Trades council seriously discussed
the feasibility of co-operative build
ing, but, with the settlement of tho
trouble, the scheme was abandoned.
The co-operative laundry Is, however,
even more of an Innovation, because
there has been no strike and no threat
of a strike among the laundry workers.
Loose a Plant.
The members of the Woman's Label
league are pledged to patronize union
labor wherever possible. They took up
1 the subject of laundry about three
1 months ago and found that none of the
steam laundries In the city had union
help. With a view to changing this
Hj condition of things they sent a com-
mlttee to the proprietor of the latest
laundry venture and promised him the
work of forty families If he would
unionize his plant. He took the mat
ter under consideration, but was in
llueneed, It Is claimed, by the Citizens'
Alliance to refuse the request.
This put the women of the Label
league on their mettle and they re
solved to have the union label on their
clothes If they had to send them to
Hj Ogdcn every week. About the same
time they heard that the Syracuse
laundry plant could be leased. It was
a small plant, but thoroughly equipped
and the women decided that herein lny
the solution of the diiTlculty. The union
men were In hearts' sympathy with the
cause and came to the assistance of
their wives and mothers. An organtza
tlon was effected, Thomas Watklns of
the Carpenters' union being elected
president, J. B. Robinson secretary,
and Carl Oslby treasurer.
Will Begin Monday.
The plant was leased on Tuesday,
and Charles Bird, an experienced laun
dryman recently from Butte, was
placed In charge. Beginning Monday
morning fifteen employees will respond
to the call of the whistle and the Wo
man's Lebcl league will begin hustling
for business. At present there Is but
one delivery wagon connected, with the
laundry, but the women say they can
buy more as soon as the business will
The failure of the attempt to unionize
the existing laundries Is generally al
trlbutcd by the union to the Citizens'
Alliance, and the co-operatlvo enter
prize Is both a social experiment and a
hostile move against the employers
-who will not countenance unionism.
Jts success will encourage further ef
forts In the same direction while its
failure may turn union activity In
Is an Enthusiast.
Mrs. Wat kins, the wife of the prosl
dent, Is as enthusiastic as her husband
in promoting the co-operative venture.
"I am a stockholder," she said last
night, "and my little girl is a stock
holder. The business was started only
after we had labored for three months
with the private laundries trying, wlth
out success, to get them to run union
places. Since I quit the laundry I
have been patronizing, their agent has
been to see me three times trying to
got my work back, lie asked mo what
I would do If none of the laundries
-would hire union help, and I told him
that I would hire a woman to do all
tho plain washing and send the col
l&i? and cuffs to the union laundry at
Ogdcn. That was what I would have
done If we had not secured this plant
when wo did.
"Wo are going to cut prices on the
rough dry work 1 cent a pound. We
have to because that Is In our contract.
We cannot charge more than G cents a
pound for that kind of work, but we
can get as much ns the other laundries
on other work. I cannot say what the
difference in the wages and hours of
employees will be, but there Is a laun
dry workers' union now In process of
formation, and will soon receive Its
charter from Troy, N. Y. We will pay
the scale demanded by the union.
Will Seek Indorsement.
At the next meeting of the Federa-
B tlon of Labor its Indorsement will be
I requested, and It Is probable that tho
j; various unions anil la ted will be asked
B to take stock in order that the business
BB may be carried on on a more cxtcn-
BBh slve scale. We do not expect to make
BBS any money out of it at present, any-
BBV way, but wc will get our laundry work
BBS done by union hands."

Captain John T. Dale, who has como
to take command of the division of
Utah and Idaho, as the successor of
Capt. W. P. Wood, who has been

There were addresses of welcome by
Mr. Splalne, on behalf of the recruits;
by Mr. McCloskey, on be-half of the

night that he hud not yet been long

plates the taking of from twenty-five
to fifty poor women and children to

URCHINS STEAL THE
FAMILY'S ICE CREAM
Dinner was at Its most pleasant point.
The house at 20 East Sixth South had
been specially decorated and Illumi
nated, and the host and' hostess felt
the greatest satisfaction at the way
the affair was going off. Under the
influence of nice food, wines nt the right
temperature and good humor, the con
versation was at the stage when oven
the girls were vying with each other In
throwing bouquets. All wns ready for
the crowning dish of the evening, the
dish which should round off the meal
and prepare the way for the coffee.
"You may bring In the Ice-cream,
Pauee. The very name "Ice-cream"
brought water to the mouths of the
eager and expectant guests.
Still a pause. The timid ones cast
anxious glances at the door. Could it
oh, dreadful thought! but could It be
possible that a careless cook had put
the coffee In the freezer and tho Ice

was no chance of melting, and it's gone

Alas! It was too true. Some of the
urchins of the neighborhood had seen
the unusual Illumination at No. 2G. and.
while hanging outside, caught sight of
something that looked the very Image
of their hearts' desire. The kids had a
fine fenst. that was all the better for
having been stolen.
STREET CAR MEN'S
UNION HOLDS SESSION
Installation of the permanent officers
of the new Street Car Men's union had
been scheduled for the regular meet
ing held last night in Labor hall, but
on account of two of the officers having

only routine business was transacted.
The officers to be Installed at tho next
meeting are James H. Lamont, presi
dent; C. E. Wilcox, vice-president: IL
Schuettler, treasurer; T. H. B. Grey,
financial and recording secretary.
"The Street Car Men's union Is In a
prosperous condition," said one of the
officers last night. "We have no kick
against anyone. Our organization has
resulted in tho best work being done
In tho street car service of Salt Lake
that has ever been done here, and In
view of that fact we believe no one
has a kick against us."

State Committeeman John Meteer of
Richfield. Sevier county. Is In the city to
be present at the meeting of tho State
committee at the Joint building Saturday
forenoon. Mr. Meteer Is ono of tho most
active and enthusiastic young Republicans
of southern Utah. IT was onu tlmo Inter
ested In mining In this State and In Alas

over the campaign Mayor James Chris

vention solid for Mayor Christiansen."
said he. "There la not the particle of
doubt of It. Th-re Is but one avowed can
didate for a Stale office In southern Utah
besides Mayor Christiansen. That Is State
Superintendent Nelson of Sanpete county.
He has no opposing candidate to date, and
Erobably will not have. Other names have

"Mayor Christiansen Is one of tho most
enterprising citizens of Utah and thoro Is
not a better or a moro energetic Repub

Committeeman Meteer favors an early
Slate convention, so as to enable tho sev
eral organizations to prepare for a thor
ough canvass of the State. He also bo
lleves It best to hold the convention In
Salt Lako City.
Tho Democratic platform at the corner
of Main and Second South Is the butt of
many a Joko these days. It Is having a
rocky tlmo of It between the Jeers of the
people and the wrath of tho elements.
The storm last night left It a wreck
and tho colors with which tho platform
was decorated ran, as one old soldier put
It, "llko the average Democrat did dur
ing tho war."
Then the platform Is not squaro with
the world, square with tho people nor
square with the party. "I'll bet Judgo
Powers will be glad a dentist made It Im
possible for him to speak on that plat
form," said another. "He would never,
this early In the campaign, be able to
swallow the gold standard declaration."

"Tho campaign should bo short and vig

In tho nbsenco of tho City Council
Mayor Morris Is having tho running of
the city much to himself. In proof of his
undisputed jMJwcr Is the stand erected at
he crossing of Main and Second South

it Is certain that the Republican majority
would havo tabled tho petition of tho
Democratic committee asking permission
Co block the street In this manner.
The Mayor, however, to show that his
htart Is In tho right place, says that after
the Democrats aro through ratifying Uio
work of the National cojnmlttao at St.
Louis the Republicans may have the use
of the stand.

WANTS ALLOWANCE FOR
CARTRIDGES FOR POLICE
Chief of Police Lynch Is taking steps
to obtain an allowance from the city
lo provide cartridges in order that tho
policemen may Improve their aim.
It is felt by many that this is a per
fectly reasonable improvement to ef
fect. As It Is, the officers can not af
ford to continue buying their own car
tridges. One of them said yesterday
that he had spent as much as 51.25 in
two days, without using an exorbitant
number, and even for practice, none of
them can afford to go on at that rate.
They say nlso that as the city Is the
chluf party to benefit by the Improve
ment effected. It Is only fair that the
city should foot the bill. Chief Lynch
said yesterday that Salt Lake wasjone
of the few'cltlcs of any Importance that
had no such allowance.

Dickson of London, England, who hs k
written to Mr. James asking Informs '
tlon In regard to his grandfather and j
uncle, William Dickson. 0
Tho writer says In the first part of,
his letter that he was Informed byj
Latter-day Saints In London that by;
writing to the County Clerk he "should; '
get to know the truth" of hlB grand-J S
father, William Dickinson, a member
of the Mormon church In Salt Lake)
City. Further on the letter readii i
"Hearing In London that he Is dead v
and that inquiries are being mnde fori
his nearest relative, which I am, thai
only nephoy living." f.
