MORE MrSCATCTE rjTREST.
Because of alleged discrimination by
cfflsers of the McKee and Blivan but
ton factory in Muscatine 200 employes
went on strike yesterday after having
worked for two days. The union men
declare that there was unfair discrim
ination against two of the old employes
who were refused employment by the
company. The new strike occurred
during the absence of Organizer O. C.
Wilson from the city. Mr. Wilson re
turned there la6t night from Rock Isl
and, and when he had learned of the
strike-censured the men for their hasty
action, declaring that had they tried to
settle the matter peaceably that much
trouble might have been avoided. Al
though the work In other shops is far
from organized, there have been no
serious delays. The men are still un
settled, but It is expected that a few
days of work will remedy all this.
JFSJEN AFTER OFFICE.
Herman Jessen of Davenport, busi
ness agent and secretary of Council
No. 11 of the Mississippi Valley union
of PainterB, Decorators and Paperhang
ers of America, returned last night
from Muscatine. Mr. Jessen has been
endorsed by the councils of Illinois and
Iowa for the position of third general
vice president of the national organiza
tion, to fill the vacancy in the execu
tive board caused by the death of Jo
seph Healy of Cincinnati. According to
the present outlook, the appointment
of Mr. Jessen seems a certainty. In
case he is named he will be trans
ferred to Indiana or Ohio.
"I want to see that brass

"Just the same," replied
the salesman. "We never

"Certainly," said the sales
man, "25 per cent, which
makes it $19.50 for you."
"Save $6.50. don't I?"
said the customer. "Well
worth it, I don't really need
the bed just now, but send
it up, $6.50 is worth as much
to me as to anybody."
