EIGELOW IS RIGHT.
Reverend Herbert S. Higelow is
peeved at the managers of the wet
campaign for the manner in which
they misrepresented their attitude
to. him on the stability amend
ment. Rev. Higelow figured that
while they were appealing to la
bor to support them, they were
furnishing money to the stability
amendment people to defeat the
initiative and referendum.
They simply double crossed the
reverend gentleman, the same as
they double crossed Governor
Cox last year and are double
crossing the Building Trades
Council every day by giving their
work to non-union men.
Cheer up, Brother Bigelow, you
will find that the more business
you have with them, the more
double crosses you will get.
THE BREWERY WORKER
AND HIS PAY.
Members of the Brewery
Workers at their meeting last
week adopted resolutions favor
ing the making of a demand upon
the brewers for a substantial in
crease in wages.
Discussion brought out the fact
that these workers, who are now
receiving none too much money
in return for their labor, are
forced to give up about half their
wages in support of the Home
Rule League and the various
lights which are being waged
Since these workers practically
support the various anti-prohibition
campaigns, it is only reason
able to suppose the brewers
should pay them well for their
services, which, no doubt they
will be glad to do now that the
matter is to be presented to them
in a proper light.
Unquestionably the largest as
set of the brewery interests in
these campaigns is the unfalter
ing support of their employees
and friends, and it is through
them that union labor throughout
the State was induced to endorse
It is hoped this matter may be
settled amicably and that the
brewery workers will not be
forced to go on strike as was the
case several years ago when the
brewers fought them for many
months before recognition of the
union was gained, the fight being
won through the fact that not
only union labor, but citizens at
large were in sympathy with the

Niggers Added to the Committee to Call on Mr. Shinkle
At the meeting of the John Street Im
provement, Welfare, Uplift and General
Do Your Neighbor Good Association
last night, Rev. Erastus Johusihg, Pres
ident, called the attention of members to
the action of the People's Power League
at its meeting Thursday evening in ad
vocating free bridges between Cincin
nati and the Kentucky cities and the
.spreading of the single tax doctrine.
Mr. Johnsing spoke, in part, as follows:
Ah hopes, genimen, dat ebry man in
dis hall tonight is niakin' a spesliul effot
for to keep up wid de doings itb de
People's Power League as Ah sees a
great future bt-fo dat association an
much good to de peeple oh dis town in
de work it am undertaking. Las night
dar was a great big meetiii' of de league
and Mr. liiglow was dar en he spoke
words what means much. Mr. liiglow
pinted a kunmiite which am goin' to
tackle de job ub givin' de people fret
bridges and ah feels shtir dat all ub you
genimen will git de ide as to de advant

Dar am pints in de program as Ah sees
it dat kin be proved on and Ah am
convinced ef dis kunimite which am to
be pinted to talk wid Mr. Shinkle was

Shinkle am a Southern geinman and he
understands niggers and knows how to

What de niggers want am free bridges

fact that there are other eminent men in
