ation to them,, and organized labor
all over Chicago is being thoroughlj
stirred up by men who say now is a
good time to find out the real union
men and the ones who use the labor
movement for their own selfish bene
fit. Musical Instrument Makers' Union
No. 11 adopted resolutions imposing a
fine of $10 on any members found in
possession of the special suffrage
edition of the Examiner, the so-called
trades union edition, or any other edi
tion of the Examiner or American.
Leather Novelty Workers' Union
No. 12 reaffirmed the resolution
adopted by the Chicago Federation of
Labor placing Hearst's American and
Examiner on the unfair list, with a $5
fine for any member of the union
found reading or buying either of
them.
A representative of Pressmen's
Union No. 7 was refused admission to
the meeting of Plumbers and Sprink
ler Fitters' Union No. 28, but mem
bers said if he wasn't admitted the
real union men present would hold
another meeting and hear him. He
was then invited in and addressed the
meeting on the Hearst papers.

ENGINE TROUBLE SPOILS RACE
BETWEEN TRAIN AND FLYER
Washington, D. C, Aug. 8. Lost
in the smoke clouds that hang over
Baltimore, Aviator C. Murvin Wood,
who was racing a Pennsylvania flyer
from New York to Washington in an
effort to establish a new non-stop
distance flight for time, flew off the
track, after passing Baltimore and
landed in a field near Gaithersburg, a
town 245 miles north of this city.
His machine suffered minor in
juries. Engine trouble forced him to
descend. The aviator was unhurt.
A crew of mechanics left to repair the
machine, and the flight to Fort Myer,
Va., where Wood will exhibit his aero
plane as a war engine, may be con
tinued late this afternoon.
A 35-mile handicap was given the
train by the aviator, but when he
flew into Baltimore he had lopped this
off, and was leading the flyer by 35
minutes. The train started from
New York at 4:31 a. m. and Wood at
the same time rose from the avia
tion field at Garden City, L. I.
The train, running on a,non-stop
schedule, traveled at the rate of .75
miles an . hour between Wilmington
and Philadelphia. Wood would have
beaten it Into Washington by at least
40 minutes if he had not been forced
to descend. As it was, he smashed
all American records for long dis
tance flights when he was forced to
descend at Gaithersburg. The dis
tance between Garden City and
Gaithersburg is 225 miles. He had
engine trouble throughout the flight.

A COMMUTER'S REFORM
"Hutchins doesn't quit work at
3:30 as he used to. Getting indus
trious?" "No since he's been living in the
country he finds that the first train
home doesn't leave until 5:45."

Gradually Col. Mulhall is acquiring
the high record as to the kinds of a
liar a man. can be.
