Was It a Scranton girl who declared
q month ago that when she grows too
o'd to play tennis she will "go in" golf?
"Of course I couldn't think of it now,"
she explained. "But I think it must
be a very nice game for old people."
That was last month. You should
get her opinion now, when she frankly
confesses that It Is a pity everyone can
ni'i begin golf in early childhood so
as to really learn the game.
Somebody declares that many other
articles besides briefs and law books
an.1 such things aro carried In the neat
little green -bags affected by lawyers.
A Scranton girl who has some how
learned to use several very strange
words,, declared the, other day that It

THE 5CRASTTON TRIBUNE-"WEDNESDAY MORNIGr, JULY 21, 185)7.
QUARREL AT A
Clerks' Union Charged wllh Being an
IT WAS BRIEF BUT' SPIRITED
1. J. Thomas, of tho Carpenters'
Union, Made the Clinrgc, nnd HI. J.
K. Levy, of tho Clerks' Union,
Threatened Physical Satisfaction.
Trouble Started with tho Assertion
Thnt n Scriuiton I'irm Is Selling tho
Product of Swcntshop Labor.
There wns a war of words last night
among sonic of tho delegates at a meet
ing in A. O. U. W. hall addressed by
Michael Raphael, of New York city,
agent of the United Garment workers
of that city.
Mr. Raphael had concluded an nd
dtess concerning sweat-shops nnd their
product, nnd In approval of his sug
gestion a committee was being ap
pointed to Investigate a belief that
two prominent Scranton clothing firms
were selling sweat-shop goods. Among
those appointed by President M. D.
Flaherty, of the Central Labor union,
were Nelson G. Teets, M. J. K. .Levy
nnd J. Abrahams, of the Clerk's union.
Mr. Teets und Mr. Levy declined to
serve on the ground that the busi
ness of tho committee's Investigation
wr.a pome thing in which they were
personally interested. Mr. Levy had
questioned Mr. Raphael's statement
about one Scranton firm, nnd asked
him to retract and made a further
reference to the matter when ho de
clined to serve on the committee.
I'. J. Thomas excitedly exclaimed:
"That's another proof that what I've
said before Is true tho clerks are not
organized labor; they're organized for
only tho purposes of tho employers they
"You tnke that back!" exclaimed
Levy, shaking his (1st at Thomas, who
sat some distance away from him.
"You take that back, or I'll knock It
"You'd better not It will cost you
something," replied Thomas.
"Yes, It will cost me twenty, and
I'll pay It," shouted Levy.
CALLS FOR ORDER,
There were calls for order when Mr.
Abrahams, the third member of the
Cl'rks union, named for the commit
tee, arose and in refutation of Mr.
Thomas' charge said, mentioning the
name of the firm he represented: "This
is fals? on its face. If it were true
my firm would not now be short of the
cheaper grades of overalls through Its
determination to stand by labor and
not buy tho product of a non-union
factory. My firm has stood by labor
In this case, and It has cost us money,
Debate was finally cut off by Presi
dent Flaherty, who said that nny fur
ther differences must be aired In sec
ret session. AH those present, three
reporters excepted, were members of
the various local trades unions, nnu
nearly all were delegates, chosen to
hear Mr. Raphael's address, and re
port to their representative organiza
tions. Mr. Raphael's speech consumed over
an hour's time and was designed to In
fluence the trades union members to
boycott firms that sell other than
union-made clothing. He Introduced
his7 speech by giving particular atten
tion to organized labor and the reforms
It could accomplish. The time had
passed, he said when unions would not
associate themselves In a common ob
ject. The brotherhood disposition of
the present day, he hoped, would stop
the practice of some Scranton firms in
selling goods made for starvation
wages, by unnaturalized labor and
amid surroundings reeking with filth
DIFFICULTY NOT SETTLED.
He said the recent differences be
tween the United Garment Workers
and manufacturersof sweat-shop goods
In New York city had not been settled.
Vast quantities of clothing Is dally be
ing produced in dens of pauperism and
filth for sub-contrftctors who turn tho
product over to contractors and they
In turn to manufactuiers.
Mr. Raphael offered vivid descrlp
tlons of sweat shops In New York ana
other cities and quoted freely from a
report by Miss O'Reilly to the conven
tion of factory Inspectors at Philadel
phia. In New York legislative enact
ments and factory inspections were In
adequate. Tenement factories were
not abolished, but where there was an
occasional enforcement of law the re
sult was only to drive the affected
sweat shops to other cities.
It was constantly being proved that
legislation was futile. The only re
course, he said, was for organized labor
to boycott the cheap product. It would
bo a humane object and would lessen
the growth In the criminal, insane and
pauper population. In this connection
he made a plea against tenement child
labor. "I read in a recent Issue of one of
your own Scranton papers," said Mr.
Raphael, "some refeience to the num
ber of Immoral places In your city. Do
you know one of the starting points of
that condition? I nin not going to tell
you explicitly, but can you not guess
when girl operatives In one of your
clothing munufactutcs recently had
their wages reduced below the $3 and
$4 per week that they had been work
ing from 9 to 10 hours a day to earn?"
REPORTED IN NEW YORK.
It had been reported at the United
Gaiment headquarters In New York
city that two Scranton retail firms
weie selling clothing purchased from
two well known New York firms whose
goods were the product of sweat
shops. The names of the firms, bojh
in Scranton and Now York were men
tioned by the speaker. He said the
matter had been Investigated since his
arrival In Scranton nnd It was found
one firm sold only union-made cloth
ing. Tho other firm, Mr. Raphnel bj
lieved, was guilty of tho pract'ee
churged against them.
The speaker then urged the mem
bers of trades unions to purchase only
such ready-made clothing as contained
the union label. Printed matter bear
ing a fac-slmlle of the label has been
When Mr. Raphael concluded his
speech he was asked by Mr. Levy to
retract his statement concerning on
Scranton firm. He said he had noth
ing to retract, he had not made an ab
solute accusation. He had yolced lil.i
belief and tho committee to be op-pointed-
could determine whether a re
traction should be made.
It was voted to appoint a committee
and President Flaherty named T. J.
Monauan, of tho Barbers' union; J. M.
Knowlton, of the Carpenters' union; J.
F. Everett, of the Cigar Makers' union;
W. J. O'Connell, of the HorseshoerV
union; Miss Mary Tight, of the Gar
ment Makers' union; P. G. Moran, of
the Typographical union; James Tler-
ney, of the Turner's union; P. F. Hol
ton, of the Painters' Union, nnd J. A.
Brahams, N. G. Teets nnd M. J. K.
Levy, of the Clerks' union. The two
latter were excused from serving.
A vote of thanks wns tendered Mr
Raphael for his address.
The committee decided to meet at tlw
Scranton house at 8 o'clock this even

STORIES DON'T AGREE.
City Officials Tumbling Over Each Other
in Their Anxiety to Deny Respon
sibility for Burns' Dismissal.
Yesterday's Tribune as everybody
in Northeastern Pcnnylvanla and a
good many people In a great many
other places know, contained an ar
ticle to the effect that Select Council
man M. J. Burns of the Eighteenth
ward has been deprived of his position
in -the street commissioner's depart
ment by the city hall ring becausa It
Is illegal for a city olllcer to have any
dealings of profit with the city. The
article further stated that It was May
or Bailey who had Instructed Street
Commissioner Dunning to lay off Mr.
Yesterday afternoon's papers con
tained the following:
"Select Councilman M. J. Burns, of tho
Eighteenth ward, and official bricklayer
for tho city has had his "head cut off" by
order of Mayor Bailey," said a morning
Tho mayor, when seen by a Times re
porter today, stated that ho took excep
tions to tho uncalled for gossip of tho
morning paper, and branded it as false.
Ho claims that in regnrd to Mr. Burns'
caso ho Is In complete ignorance of the
whole affair and wishes to emphatically
state that he never made a. remark which
could bo construed to mean that he
wished tho city work to bo taken from
the hands of Mr. Burns. "In fact," said
tho mayor, "I did not know ho was doing
any work for the city. How tho report
was started I do not know, but that It Is
a falsity and a very unjust one I do not
hesitate to state."
Street Commissioner Dunning to the re
porter said: "The mayor has never men
tioned Mr. Burns' name to me In any re
spect. I was Informed that hereafter Mr.
Burns' orders would bo held and further
that It was Illegal for him to do city
work. In this matter tho mayor should
be exonerated from all blame. The report
which has been circulated Is as untruo as
it is unjust." Times.
A story Is going the rounds of city hall
that Mayoa Balloy had ordered Street
Commissioner Dunning to cut off from
Select Councilman M. J. Burns, of tho
Eighteenth ward, city brick laying pat
ronage. Tho mayor spoke to a Truth re
porter this morning concerning tho story,
and said "I knew nothing of any such an
order until I saw it In print this morning.
I did not give It, but I do not know what
Mr. Dunning may have thought best to
do about tho men employed by tho city.
There Is nothing In the story." Truth.
Now for the facts of the case.
Mr. Burns told the Tribune reporter
that Mr. Dunning told him It was the
mayor and city controller who had In
structed him to cut off his work. Mr.
Dunning when seen about the matter
said It was none of the his doing; that
the mayor had directed it.
What the mayor says about It Is
contained In the Interview In the af
ternoon papers. Mr. Beamish, the
mayor's secretary in defending his
chief yesterday said it was the city
controller If any who did the deed.
City Controller Robinson when seen in
his ofllce across tho hallway Imme
diately afterward disavowed any con
nection with the affair and said the
first he knew of It was when he saw
it in The Tribune.
The Tribune Is not particularly In
terested In the whys and wherefores
of the matter but merely wants to
Dhow that the report was not as "un
just as It was untrue." Messrs. may
or, controller and commissioner can
settle among themselves which of them
Is aflllcted with bad memory.

The compulsory education law, It Is
thought, has had some to do with tho

but It Is possible also that the remark
able growth of Scranton during that

also figured in the increase in the at
