heavier than George, and promising.
The Tyler brothers recall Martin
Walsh, who was a brother of the fa
mous Qhicago pitcher. One spring
Martin was tried out by the Chicago
Cubs, in the hope thaChis immense
strength could be utilized- until he
could pitch as well as Ed. The first
night out on the spring training tnp
Martin grew confidential.
"I have it all fixed," he said. "The
White Sox and the Cubs will win the
pennants in the different leagues and
play for the world's championship.
Ed and I will pitch against each other
in the opening game. Lots of the fel
lows at home think I'll beat him, and
the K. of C. bunch is coming to see
that game. I invited them."
Barring a few details, such as his
release before the season opened, the
plan worked fairly well.
LABOR KEEPS UP ITS FIGHT TO
ORGANIZE EAT SHOPS
Organized labor is resuming hos
tilities -against the restaurants and
hotels controlled by brewers. The
Edelweiss restaurant has been placed
on the unfair list of the Chicago Fed
eration of Labor and a conference
was held in the C. Pi of L. offices
yesterday to consider carrying on the
war outside of Chicago. Cooks, bak
ers, waiters and waitresses' unions
sent delegates to go over the situa
tion with representatives of the brew
ery workers' unions.
The Peter Schoenhofen brewery
and its stockholders own the Edel
weiss, it is claimed, and have helped
in a financial way to build up Vogel
sang's restaurant. In order to union
ize these two places and combat the
Restaurant Keepers' Ass'n, the local
unions may secure the assistance of
American Federation of Labor and
have Schoenhofen beer put on the
unfair list of unions all over the
country. The brewery workers, who
have a contract with Schoenhofen's
brewery, are anxious that this step
be taken only as a last resort.
Ways and means for organized
labor to vote with the dry element in
politics and attack the brewing in
terests from that direction were dis
cussed. "I am not a dry," said Fred Ebel
ing, secretary of the cooks' union.
"I am a wet under ordinary condi
tions. But if the brewers join hands
with the Restaurant Keepers' Ass'n to
stop the unionizing of Chicago res
taurants, then I am going to join
hands with the drys in politics and
fight the saloons to a finish.
"Manager Pruyn of the Edelweiss
told our committee straight out hat
he was powerless to sign any con
tract with us. The fellow to see, he
told us, is John Vogelsang, president
of the R. K. A., and Vogelsang told
our committee, 'the restaurants of
the Chicago Restaurant Keepers' .
Ass'n will not be unionized.'
"Instead of going to Mexico we are
going to stay here in Chicago and try
to civilize the loop district by making
the restaurant magnates have decent
wages and hours among their em
ployes." Manager W. M. Collins of Henrici's
restaurant has laid off eight girls
during the past two weeks and on
some nights the east room annex has
been dark and not open for custom
ers as formerly. The picketing of
Henrici's is being done now by print
ed cards arid billboard posters.
No formal decree has yet been en
tered on court records by the judges
who heard the picketing case of the
waitresses' union against Henrici's.
Judge McGoorty yesterday delivered
to Edgar L. Masters, attorney for the
waitresses', 1,800 typewritten pages
of the testimony reported in the case.
Masters must sign a certificate saying
the reported evidence is true and cor
rect before Judge McGporty will
make another move.
ONCE IN A WHILE
"Do you ever get stage fright?"
asked the friend of the actor.
"Only when I meet my creditors,"
replied the actor, candidly.
