LABOR MUST UNITE
PROFESSIONAL MEN HAVE ORGAXI ZATIONS, WHY NOT LABOR. They Join Their Organization For the Standing It GITM Them—In Practice the Trade Unions Are Identical With Associations—I'n alded by Co-Operatlon Laborer Would be Reduced to Pitiable State. The question is often asked, Why should workingmen join unions? This makes it puzzling to workingmen why it is never asked of doctors, or law yers, or business men, why they join "unions." The physician joins the medical society, the lawyer the bar as sociation and the business man the chamber of commerce. These people, says The Tailor, join the society of their business or profes sion for the standing it gives them, for the exchange of ideas and commu nity of effort along well defined lines, and that the common standard of ex cellence is raised thereby and the in dividual benefited is never questioned. In practice, the object of trades unions are identical with those of the associa tions mentioned and many others, and the inducement for a professional or business man to Join an organization of the character indicated is many times intensified in the case of the workingman. In the keen competition of the busi ness world expenses of production must be kept at the minimum by the em ployer who would maintain his posi tion. Labor receives no more consid eration than that it is in a position to demand and enforce. This is not the fault of the individual, but of the sys tem, and many times employers are forced against their inclinations by competition to give the screws on labor one more turn in preference to yielding the field of trade to less honorable com petitors. Unaided 'by co-operation of his fel lows the individual laborer would be reduced to a pitiable state by the con stant encroachment of capital in the hands of the capitalist. United for a common object, the workingmen be come an effective force effective in di rect ratio to the thoroughness of their organization. United, they are in a position to arbitrate the question of a just division of the profits of their toil supplemented and directed by the capi tal of the employer. One single -man, standing out from his fellows, unaffil iated with the union of his craft, sul lenly accepting its benefits, or bawling of his "freedom from the tyranny of trade unions," is a breach in the citadel, and every man but forges the chains to bind himself and his fellows to con ditions of serfdom. That labor unions uniformly secure better wages, shorter hours of labor, improved conditions and better treat* ment for all the men engaged in the trade or calling within the sphere of its influence, needs no demonstration. No man worthy of the name would enjoy these advantages without will ingly joining with that union and aid ing in shaping its policy and assisting in defraying the necessary expenses of its maintenance the highest condi tions of efficiency. And yet there are individuals who not only do that very thing, but abuse the union that helps to feed them—villify the leaders and seek favor in the eyes of the employer by claiming their superior subserviency to the bosses' wishes. Trade unions make for a higher class of workmanship. The most skilled ar tisans of all trades are to be found in their ranks, and great care is used in securing new members to the end that the standard of excellence is not low ered by the admission of incompetent men. A union card is an excellent guarantee of skill. If the unions could only exercise their powers more fully than they are allowed to do in nearly all the trades, the apprentice systems would be something more than is usu ally the case, systems in theory only. The employer seeks only to produce goods at low cost. He cares nothing about the instruction of apprentices. Trade unions care for their sick and needy. Hundreds of thousands of dol lars are poured from their treasuries annually for charity, and of this the general public never hears a word. It is done silently, sympathetically and promptly. They bury the dead and comfort and aid the widows and or phans. There is no proclaiming from the housetops. They educate their members on economic lines and without entering partisan politics teach the workingmen the true significance of the ballot and the fast effective method for its use. All social and political re forms of importance spring from and are disseminated through trade union agencies. They are the safety valve for the nat ural discontent engendered by the fierce competitive system. In Euro pean countries where labor unions are suppressed and restricted, red anarchy rears its ugly head. WU DID NOT ASK "WHY?" He Only Swore—Somebody had Sent Him a Bud's Gown by Mlstake.( From the Philadelphia North Ameri can Wu Ting-fang, the Chinese minister, was confronted for a time the other night with the alternative of missing the New England dinner, which he had come from Washington to attend, or appearing in a woman's decollete silk evening gown instead of his own flow ing silk robe. As a consequence, the guests in the section of the hotel in which Wu was domiciled heard a choice and pic turesque assortment of words in both Chinese and English volleying on the air as if from a rapid Are gun. For Minister Wu was angry. The Oriental statesman is exact in all matters of dress. He had brought from Washington his very finest silk outergarment—one modeled on the same lines as the shirt of the Ameri can man. It was his gaily em broidered state robe—a thing of beauty —but was sadly rumpled as a conse quence of its trip to Philadelphia. So this gorgeous article of apparel was given to the house valet to be pressed, with strict orders to have it ready in time to permit the minister to make his toilet for the dinner. The package was returned in time. The valet disappeared. So far all was lovely. The critical moment arrived. The robe was shaken out by Wu. Then'he tried to put it on. Something was wrong. He was caught and almost strangled in a whirl of ruffles and chif fon. As he started to take off the queer newfangled thing hooks caugtat in his queue and held him fast. Then Minister Wu used, it is related, words that are not in any dictionary, Ameri can or Chinese. When disentangled he examined the garment. It. was a woman's. That was sure. It was short at the top and long in the skirt. The minister had seen women wear gowns cut just so. Ordinarily he would have welcomed a chance to examine one of these crea tions, for he is always an eager seeker after knowledge. But time was press ing. There was small opportunity to ask why. So he rang bells until the thall boys came in droves. Explosively the guest explained that it was impossible to wear the garment sent him. It did not fit. His own must be produced at once. The ex change was made after some delay. With ruffled feelings, but outwardly immaculate, the minister swept out of the hotel. He failed to explain when making his speeoh how it chanced that he was late at the New England din ner. MARKED CARDS IN MONTANA. Were Distributed Around on the Press Ascent Plan. "A gambler with a press agent, or an advance agent, rather, is one of the newest that I struck in the wild and woolly," said Tom Maguire, managed for Zelma Rawlston. "It was in Montana that I ran up against this up-to-date sure thing man. He was an all round happy go lucky 'tin horn* gambler, who made his head quarters in Butte. One night he pinch ed a 'sleeper' in one of the faro layouts in the M. & M. gambling house. Well, he managed to work that 'sleeper' up to about a thousand dollars before the night was over. "Then an idea struck him the next day, and he began to put it into opera tion. He bought several gross of marked playing cards and looked about for his advance man. "It was about sheep shearing time, and in every hamlet or settlement there was always plenty of jaioney. Most of the sheep shearers and shepherds, or whatever they were, came from Swed en and were inveterate gamblers. This the gambler well knew before he start ed his man ahead. 'Now,' he said to this worthy, 'you sell these cards to every gin mill and store in each place. Get two bits a deck for' em. Take a short bit, or give 'em away, but get 'em in there.' "The advance man followed instruc tions, and a week later the up-to-date knight of the cards started out to clean up the sheep shearing camps, etc. He would strike a place and a game stud poker, which is a favorite pas time in that section, would be started. The gambler would tear up deck after deck of cards after two or three deals, and buy new cards from the proprietor of whatever establishment he was in. Any suspicion as to marked cards would thus be allayed, as the decks were sold in front pt thev.players. "Well, it is sufficient to .say that in two weeks' time he cleaned up between $16,000 and $17,000 and cut out for the East. I saw him In New York some time afterward, just after he had work ed his passage back from the other side. 'That money didn't do me no good,' he told me, with much disgust. 'You see, I Just thought I'd run over to Monte Carlo and break that Prince of Monaco. Well, those guys had me skinned to death. They didn't do a thing to me. I think my pile lasted a week. Maybe a little less. At any rate, they did me good and plenty. I got to go back now and make another stake. I guess, he went back, but he was a good one." UNION MEN........

From the Cincinnati Times-Star: Ralph Hammersly^ the oldest potter in the United States, is dead. Ever since Rookwood has been Rookwood, Hammersly has been with it, and al most up to the day that death claimed him he worked at his bench in the famous pottery. He was born in England and was married on the other side of the ocean. He was 78 years of aee. He came to this country when quite a young man, bringing with him the secrets of the English potters. His ser vices were in imniediate demand and he followed his art here. When Rook wood pottery was started he was en gaged there. He was a skilled work man and ftiany of the beautiful pieces of work that have been turned out of that place have passed through his hands. Some time ago he and his wife cele brated their golden wedding. Mrs. Hammersly died shortly after, and the death of the partner of his life grieved him beyond consolation. He followed Mr. Carnegie to Have Good Flshlnir. From the Chicago American: London—Mr. Andrew Carnegie is building salmon and trout hatcheries on an extensive scale, with a view to the improvement of the fishing at Skibo, his favorite pastime. The site of the hatcheries is on the banks of the river Eveleeks, three miles from Skibo, which was selected by Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie prior to their departure for New York. It is expected that the Skibo hatcheries will be used to gen-« erously stock the rivers Shin and Eve leeks, and the noted lochs near by. No expense is to be spared in their construction.

SESSION OF LEGISLATURE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE TO ME SHORT AND TO THE POINT ONLY TWO THINGS MENTIONED TAX COMMISSION IS ONE AND MER GER ANOTHER. Will Not Be Long Winded Docu ment—Will Caucus Upon Intro ducing General Legislation. ST. PAUL, Jan. 23.—Much interest in the coming session of the legislature centers on the governors' message, which will be presented the first day, and is expected to guide the members in large measure as to their course of action. The governor agrees with the large majority of legislators in wanting a short session, and in limiting its work as closely as possible. He will hot trouble the legislature with a long winded document. The principal pur pose o£ his message will be to introduce the report of the tax commission to the consideration of the two houses. That report explains itself, and will need no comments from tife governor. He will probably express this approval of it in general terms. Only One Other Subject. But one other subject will be men tioned in the message, so the report goes. The governor will briefly explain the origin of the suit against the Nor thern Securities company, the reason for bringing it, and the situation that now exists. He will ask the legislature, in view of the magintude of the case, to provide the attorney general with an ample appropriation to carry it through. He may not ask for a defi nite sum, but leave that to the discre tion of the legislature. Ifo other legislation will be mentioned in the message, and the merger prob lem will not come before the legislature except in this indirect way. Other emergency legislation may be requested later In the season, as need for it shall appear. Introduction of Bills. The message will be read to both houses sitting in joint convention in the house chamber, according to custom. Both houses will probably adjourn for the day soon after, and there will be no dhance for the introduction of bills. That evening it is intended to hold the Republican caucus. There will be a contest in the caucus over limiting the introduction of bills. Speaker Dowling's scheme to shut out all general legislation, with the excep tion of local bills and curative acts, meets with much favor, but members have pet bills they are anxious to in* troduce. A good many want to tinker with the board of .control bill, one way or th* other,/either Ijy attending the tltU or by dropping out the educational insti tutions entirely. To Sit Twenty-three Days. Lieut. Governor Lyndon A. Smith was at the state capitol today. "I be lieve the extra session will last just about 23 working days," said he. "The legislature will probably sit through February, which contains four Sundays and two legal holidays, leaving 23 working days in which the tax bill will be considered, and Saturday, March 1, for the final session and adjournment. "The tax bill seeps to' be both a scientific and practical measure, but it will require careful consideration. The people in our section will insist upon one amendment, and that is a restora tion of the $100 exemption." "Our people are solidly in favor of renominating and re-electing Governor Van Sant. They are with him in the merger fight, although that is not dis cussed to any extent since it has been taken into the courts." JOHN ALLEN'S PROPHET The Misslssipplan's Storry Thaht Put the Laugh on Boutelle of Maine. From the Kansas City Star: It was when Major William Warner was in congress, during the Cleveland administration, that "Private" John Allen made his famous reply to the equally famous speech of Congressman Boutelle of Maine, president Cleveland had decided to allow the captured Con federate battle flags to be returned to the different states whence they came. The chief executive's action created a very unfavorable stir all over the North. The matter found its way to the floor of the house. While it was being discussed, Boutelle made a mas terful address on the subject. He made the eagle scream as she had never screamed before. The bloody shirt was waved frantically. His oratorical ef forts were superb his perorations were such that all during his address he was frequently interrupted with applause. He reminded his hearers of all the no table Federal victories, and ended in a blaze of glory as he painted by word of mouth the final surrender. When Boutelle took his seat he had so far carried his hearers away that those in the gallery and the Republi can members of the house burst forth into cheers. It was a scene seldom witnessed on the flobr of the lower branch of the national asembly. It seemed that his eloquence was unan swerable. The Republican members Formerly I Wore a Dru0 Store Truss!

Suddenly from. the Democratic side Were heard the Calm,' soothing tones of John Allen, as he said: "Mr. Speaker." He spoke in his calm, even tones, with his musical Southern accent. He told of his joining the Southern cause, and following one of the flags about which the discussion arose. "When it was all over," he said, "I started back home. I was barefooted, nearly naked, and without money. I concluded to walk. I trudged along for a day or so, when a man I knew lent me a mule. The mule Was as thin and poor as I was, and I asure you he was not the most comfortable means of transit. I was grateful, however, be cause my feet were sore. So I mount ed the mule and proceded on my way. When I was about four miles from home I decided to leave the main road I was traveling, and go by another route and sneak in the back way. The mule had no bridle, only a rope around his neck, and my clothes were ragged and torn. I had gone only a little dis tance when I saw an old man, a fellow townsman, sitting on a rail fence. 'Well, John, I see you are back,* he said. 'Yes, Uncle Zeb/ I answered. 'Did they lick us, John?' •"Yes, Uncle Zeb, they licked us plen ty, too.* 'Freed the niggers, too?" 'Yes, they freed the niggers.' "The old man got down'off the fence, and, after he had thoroughly stretched out all his kinks, he said: 'John, I don't mind being licked so much, and I can stand the niggers be ing freed, but, John, the worst part of it all is that in about thirty years some durned fool will throw it up to us.' THE STARVATION CURE. From the Detroit Free Press: As a scientific cure for popular in fantile disorders is the starvation theory advanced by Dr. Karl Lewin, a distinguished Berlin specialist in chil dren's diseases. He asserts that motherly sympathy is often wrongly directed in gratifying their babied longing for the bottle, declaring that in most cases the child would be benefited by going hungry. Close observations have led Dr. Lewis to believe that in fants require liquid but not food after weakening illnesses of the stomach ac companied with vomiting and diarrhea Writing about his discovery Dr. Lewin said: "When babies cry and clutch the nursing bottle their physical wants are best served by giving them plain water to drink. They should be al lowed to go hungry, but unthirsty. I regard a period of starvation as abso lutely necessary for the first twelve or twenty-four hours. The idea is not cruel as it might seem, Inasmuch as grown pearsons under similar circum stances often feel no necessity for food for many hours. A valuable ally to this hunger cure is such treatment as causes the blood from the regions of the stomach to rush toward the skin. This is best achieved by a cold bath and hard rubbing afterward or by a hot bath—whichever the condition ot the child suggests." GRAND ARMY TWINS. From the Detroit P*** Pre**:, Jerome Tyint Rltcher and Napoleon Harrison Rlchter aire known through out Indiana as "Ty" and "Po," the G. A. R. twins, and they are probably the only living twin members of that great body of surviving heroes. In 'October, 1861, they enlisted in Company D, Fifty-seventh Indiana infantry, as chief musicians, and they went through the war side by side. The town of Williamsburg, Ind., where they were born in 1840, was founded by their father, and their mother was the first white woman born in Green's Fork. The likeness of the twins is remark able and extends to their character, habits and tastes. Their tone of voice and manner of speech are so nearly the same that when talking unseen their most intimate friends cannpt tell which of the two is talking. The great resemblance between the twina has led to many amusing incidents. Once in Richmond, Ind., Napoleon was shaved by negro. Shortly after leav ing the shop his brother Tyler entered, and the negro barber was so stricken with superstitious fear at the supposed spectacle of a beard developing a week's growth in ten minutes that he dropped his razor and fled. BOLOGNA'S LEANING TOWER. From the Detroit Free Press: The great towers of Bologna are the pride of the city, and a rumor that one of them Is weakening and may fall is causing a sensation among the people. This has caused so large an influx of visitors that it is said the hotelkeepers may not be wholly guiltless in regard to the rumor. The city has two of these square towers, the Asinelli, which Is 315 feet high, and was erected in 1109, and its rival, the Garisenda, which was built one year later, and was originally much higher, and is rendered peculiar by its decided inclination to one side. It is now only 153 feet high, the width of one side is 23 feet, the walls at the base are 6 feet 6 inches thick, while higher up they are 4 feet 9 inches. Its origin is somewhat obscure, but it was certainly intended to outdo the Asinelli, and both were for retreat in troubled times. &ome say the original Intention was to make it lean, but others con tend that either the ground has set tled or there was a defect, in the en gineering. This unique was so little thought of by one of its late pos sessors that it was sold in 1266 for 220 lire, something less than $44. THE CAMPHOR HABIT. From the Detroit Free Press: Many women ot fashion have an idea that camphor gum, taken small and regular doses, gives a pe culiar creamineos to complexion, and scores of youttg women buy It for this purpose. The habit, however, is very difficult to cast off, for qamphor pro duces a mild forty of exlhileration and stupoficatlbn and in many instances where very large doses have been swallowed the habit has become a sort of slavery. Thepe camphor eaters all have a dreamy, daaed and very listless air, and in most of them there is an ever present longing to sleep, or, at least, to rest. Ektreme weakness gen erally follows the taking, of regular doses, arid cases have been seen where ithas been almost difficult to tell the effect from those of alcohol. As to the complexion, if a, ghastly pallor be an improvement, camphor certainly pro duces it. DOGS \H GHENT. Most people know now prominent a part is, played by the dog in Belgium, where he acts as the poor man's horse. By ones, by twos, by threes and by fours, dogs may be seen drawing milk carts, hauling the vegetables, bringing home the washing—doing anything and everything in fact that falls in other countries to the lot of horse *r donkey. What is more, the dog even takes his owner for an airing, and what stands in Belgium for "the little donkey shay" of London's Whitechapel, or the classic Old Kent road, is drawn by a team of dogs who move along at a great Daca and who generally seem willing, happy and well cared for. But the Belgium dog has not stopped here. He is an ambitious creature. He is not content to do naught but slave. He has, in fact, aspired to the law with such good effect that he has become one of its limbs, and now plays the part of policeman, and with such good results, too, that crime in that particular dis trict patrolled by him is said to have diminished by two-thirds since his en try into the force. It is in Ghent that the dog hag become a recognized mem ber of the tegular town constabulary. His introduction was the outcome of a particularly happy though of Monsieur van Wesemail, chief commissioner of police there, who has trained his dogs to a very high pitch of eflciency."
