Impossible for the paper to be pub

yesterday in Teutonia hall at one of

offering the entire funds of the union,
amounting to $40,000, for the use of
their striking brethren in case of a

A telegram was received from Sam

able funds of the parent association at
the disposal of the local organization.
The president of the local union said last
night that he has assumed the duties
and responsibilities of the office with
a full knowledge of the task imposed
upon him. "There is nothing new to
be said of the 6trike," he said, "except
that the battle has commenced and
we hope that our side will win. All
we can do is to watch events. I am
making no promises, but will do my
best." At the headquarters of the
union last night, the rooms were
crowded with strikers and their sym

of The Sun have quit work in antici
pation of a lockout, which was to have
taken place on Sunday or Monday
night. The committee told Business
Manager Paddock that it had evidence
that a system was to be Introduced
which would practically 'oust all the
union men from The Sun offlce, and
demanded that be sign a contract that
only members of the Allied Printing
Trades council should be employed.
To this Mr. Paddock replied: 'I amonly
an employe and have no-power to make
such a contract.' When the committee
reports! the unsatisfactory interview
it had had with Mr. Paddock the men
voted to strike."

advance taking effect Aug. 15. This is
the greatest advance in pay ever made
by lake carriers, and does not come In
response to threats of any strike, but
simply because men are scarce.

Bawkeye Governor Resents Same Re.
marks Abont Iowa Volunteers.
Des Moines, la.. Aug. 7. Governor
Shaw received a circular letter sent out
by Edward Rosenberg, secretary of the
San Francisco Labor "council, de
nouncing the plan of the administra
tion to muster out in San Francisco
the regiments returning from the Phil
ippines. The writer declares that the
members of the Fifty-first and other
regiments would be overwhelmed by
tbe irresistible attractions of San Fran
cisco, and so "go broke." They would
then have to "beat their way home on
trains," and run the risk of being
thrown off these trains in the desert
by vigilant trainmen. It was claimed
that it would overstock the San Fran
cisco labor market. The letter was
written in a spirit strongly against the
The governor replied in a caustic
manner. He said in pert: "You must
have failed to have come in contact
with the Fifty-first Iowa when in camp
at your city. They will not
become 'soldier tramps,' nor will they
attempt to beat the trains, nor will
they be put off on mountains and in
deserts, and there miserably perish.
I fear, my dear sir, you have
not kept much in touch with the
thought and sentiment of your coun
try." The governor quotes from a speech
delivered by Governor Kirkwood these
words: "If you hear any one utter one
syllable against the government of the
United States of against the president
thereof, or against the cause for which
our boys are fighting, or do aught in
disrespect to the flag that waves over
them, shoot him where he stands. They
may arrest you, they may try you, they
may convict you. but they shall never
hang you. I'm governor of Iowa."
