General l,nl»or Notes.
The union label bill advocated by the
Trades and Labor Congress of Canada
at the present session of the Canadian
parliament has been practically killed
by the adoption of an amendment mak
ing the term "labor union" apply only
to incorporated unions. The measure
introduced by the congress passed the
house of commons at two previous ses
sions, but was rejected by the senate.
Th« canvassers for the city directory
of Los Angeles, Cal.. are having a stren
uous time, if current reports are to be
believed. The work is done in an un
fair printing office, and the union men
are therefore refusing to give their
names and occupations for publication
in this volume. At the same time many
unionists are said to be giving fictitious
names and occupations such as "W.
Shakespeare Jones, airship chauffer,"
much to the disgust of the aforesaid

of the grand jury filed affidavits set

are also presented.
BRIEF MDSOCt NEWS
Fire Company (Sets Its First
Taste of Actual Service at
a Real Fire.
Members and Citizens Fought
Heroically To Prevent
Spread of Flames.
The volunteer fire company had some
real live excitement Monday evening.
At 11:15 p. m., fire was discovered in
the home of Thos. Perry on Palmetto
street. The alarm was quickly given,
and was responded to by almost every
person on the Heights. The bucket bri
gade did noble service and succeeded
in saving the adjoining house occu
pied by Captain Montgomery. This
was the first real fire on the Heights
for several years, and since the organ
ization of the volunteer fire company.
While there was very little discipline
among the members of the company,
there was plenty of active work to make
up for any other loss. One member
of the company in his excitement, after
pouring the water from the roof of the
Montgomery house to the ground, miss
ing the house entirely and drenching a
couple of boys who were standing be
neath, then threw the bucket in the
same direction as the water. The
boys were not struck by the bucket
but some of its remnants may be seen
about the place yet. There were several
other amusing incidents, and all were
taken in good part by the crowd.
The chemical engine was tried and
proved to be an absolute failure. An
engine from headquarters fire hall ar
rived just as the blaze was dying out.
The firemen were not called upon to do
It is stated that the fire started from
an exploded lamp. Mr. Perry and his
children had little time to escape from
the burning house and everything
is a total loss. It is not known how
much insurance was carried' on either
the house or the furniture.
MARRIED AND SINGLE MEN
HAVE PUN ON DIAMOND
Base ball is getting to be the popular
sport for Duluth Heights people, old
and young. The other day the mar
ried men played the young fellows, and
almost defeated them. With some good
practice the old boys claim that they
can do up the young men for love or
The score was 10 to 9. Some great
efforts were made by the daddies.
Leon St. Germaine fanned the wind so
that it almost created a cyclone. The
boys permitted him to practice batting
for a considerable time during the
game. Hugh Fawcett was on the bench
a cripple, but with plenty of enthusi
asm to stir up his team. Adrain Davis
is said to have lost 20 pounds as the re
sult of his base ball experience. Till
Honnuld gave up in the ninth inning.
It is said that he has been using a
cane since then. Other members of the
club have all been more or less dis
abled during the week, but it is ex
pected that they will be in good trim
LABOR WORLD BASE BALI.
TEAM DEFEATS PATRICK'S
Down town stores are not going to
have a monopoly on base ball teams.
The Labor World is going to show
them all it can have a base ball team
that will be a team. The young men
on the Heights are to have a team
which shall in the future be known as
the Labor World team. Last Tuesday
they played a game with the Patrick
Juniors and scored a victory. The game
was well played and rather stimulated
the sport in our community. The club
will have new uniforms with the words
"Labor World" standing out promi

CARACAS, May 31.—Foreign traffic
with Venezuela in vessels of less than
forty tons is prohibited. Great prep
arations are being made to celebrate
the election which occurred on Miay
23 of Gen. Castro as constitutional
president for 6 years.
President Gompers of the American
Federation of Labor, recently met How
ard W. Clark in an open debate before
the central trades and labor council of
Rochester. Their subject was "The
Open Shop." Those who had the priv
ilege of hearing the discussion are
unanimous in the opinion that Mr.
Gompers had by far the best of the
argument. Certain it is that his speech
was a credit to him and the organiza
tion he represents. The Labor World
has not the space to reproduce the de
bate, but it wishes to call especial at
tention to the following thoughts, as
expressed by Mr. Gompers: "My friend
Admits thajt the trade unions have
raised wages, and that they have short
ened the hours of labor. I am pro
foundly appreciative of that admission,
for there are not two things or factors
in the whole world that do so much
to improve mankind as the means to
bring better and more of the good
things in the home, and more of the
time to cultivate our better natures.
We are going down in our pock
ets day after day and contributing our
few pennies to send out missionaries
throughout the length and breadth of
the country, throughout the highways
and byways, and preaching the gospel
of labor, and urging and notifying every
man and woman who works to come
into the fold of our labor trust and en
joy—-(last words" drowned in applause).
You can not break into a capitalist
trust with an ax. We throw open
wide the doors of our labor movement,
and appeal to and notify all the world
of workers to enter."
A writer in j-ffe Chicago Inter Ocean
says eVery student of the labor ques
tion is ready to admit that trade unions
have done much •toward procuring bet
ter sanitary arrangements In work
shops and factories. In proof of this
assertion he give some vital statistics
taken from the reports of the Cigar
makers' International union. From
these It would appear that while the
United States census reports for the
year 1900 showed a total death rate of
62 per cent in the cigar making indus
try from pulmonary diseases, only 33
per cent of the deaths among the mem
bers of the cigarmakers' union were
due to the white plague or kindred
troubles. The writer asserts that" as
the death rate among the organized
men is so mych lower than that shown
in the government reports, it therefore
follows that the rate of deaths from
tuberculosis among the organized cigar
makers has been reduced from 49 per
cent of the total in 1890 to 33 per cent
in 1900, and that the figures for the
present year, when completed, will show
a still further decrease, probably to
about 24 per cent. The decrease in the
death rate is attributed mainly to the
adoption of the eight-hour day and the
enforcement of better sanitary con
ditions. These figures are commanded
to the careful consideration of the op
ponents of the shorter workday, who
are protesting that the country will
go to the demnition bow-wows if the
eight-hour work day becomes general.
But, sad to relate, many of these em
ployers of labor have little regard for
the sufferings of humanity or the value
of human life.
According to statistics submitted by
a congressional committee, 9,840 per
sons were killed and 76, 553 injured on
the aiilroads in the United States dur
ing the fiscal year ending June 30, 1903,
and the reports for the year ending
June 30, 1904^ when completed, will show
but little improvement in conditions.
The figures compiled show that the
United States leads the world in the
number of persons killed and maimed
annually on railroads. The committee
which presented these startling figures
recommended the passage of a law au
thorizing the president to bestow, un
der suitable regulations, bronze medals
of honor, rosettes or knots, on persons
who, by extreme daring, endanger their
lives in saving or endeavoring to save
others from any railroad wreck, dis
aster or grave accident, or in endeavor
ing to prevent a wreck, disaster or ac
cident. Both houses of congress unan
imously concurred in the recommenda
tion. While this measure is a merit
orious one, most people will be inclined
to wonder why our lawmakers did not
consider some of the bills to prevent
railroad accidents that have been in
troduced in both houses, and the pas
sage of which is recommended by the
president. Among other things, these
bills require the adoption of the block
signal system on every railroad limit
the hours of labor for railroad employes
on train service provide that only
trained and experienced persons be em
ployed in positions of responsibility con
nected with the operation of trains in

the railroads to spend a few dollars in

ELUSIVE WILD STALLION.
On the reservation in the Okanogan
country in Washingtoon, is a big black
stallion the swiftest animal on all that
reservation of 5,000,000 acres. He is as
wild as a hawk and defies all efforts at
capture. The stallion weighs perhaps
1,200 pounds, and from distant views is
a cross between an American thorough
bred and a cayuse.
"Dry Creek Jack," his most persistent
pursuer, has devised a great many
schcmes for the capture of this horse,
but so far his efforts have availed him
nothing. He thought he had him sure
last year, when he found a ravine fre
quented by the big stallion and his
band of mares, and he built a great wire
fence in the /orm of a V, something
after the manner of hunting rabbits
down in Southern California. He got
the stallion in the trap all right, but
when he started to ride in the horse
cleared the fence at a single bound,
and was up and away to the mountains.
That is as near to being captured as
he ever came. There is not a rancher
who has not tried to get him, but so
far it has been impossible. His favorite
trick when pursued is to leave the band
of which he is leader and take to the
mountains. He apparently is as much
at home among the crags and peaks
as the goats that roam in that coun
try, and he can go to places that the
white men dare not follow, no matter
how surefooted their steeds may be.
The horse is greatly desired for
breeding purposes. He evidently has
endurance to burn, for even after a
hard winter, when the stock all over
the country is greatly run down, this
magnificent animal seemingly is as
strong and rugged and as fast as ever.
DISEASE CARRIED BY SPRAY.
From Harper's Weeklv:
A French military surgeon in Algiers
has recently found that spray driven
ashore from a stormy sea can effectj
ively transmit disease germs. Carry
ing on his investigations at Bab-el
oued. near Algiers, at a point where a
number of sewers discharged into the
sea, he found that the sprjiy, which
was driven some one hundred and fifty
feet ashore ^and high into the air, con
tained three times the number of
germs ordinarily present in the air.
This spray forms a mist which perme
ates the houses near to the water's
edge, and in it»a number of virulent
bacilli were found. When sale is
blowing offshore the effect is still more
pronounced and the proportion of
germs increases, ^ncl the investigator
is convinced that steps should be tiken
to protect shores from sewage pollu
VALUE OF EUCALPTUS TREE.
The Australian eucalptus tree is be
ing grown on a large scale in southern
Europe and northern Africa because
of its tendency to drain swamps. This
was formerly supposed to be due to
abundant exhalation of watery vapor
from the leaves, but It has been shown
that actually the transpiration of the
eucalyptus is only one-ha If or one
third that of willows, birches and oth
er trees, and it is therefore assumed
that th« phenomenon in question is
due simply t.o the rapid growth of the

LEWIS ft CLARK EXPOSITION.
It is a noteworthy fact that the
Lewis and Clark Exposition is the first
world's fair to be held west of the
Rocky Mountains which has secured
the aid of the government.
"And it is also surprising what an in
terest is manifested in the Exposition
by the people of the East. They see
in the Exposition an opportunity to
visit the Western country at a greatly
reduced expenditure of money, and not
only see the Exposition itself, but view
the wonders of our Western scenery,
and witness the great resources of the
Northwest and the opportunities af
forded. The Great Northern Railway
passenger department has been flood
ed with inquiries as to the Exposition,
and it augurs well for a big travel
through the Northwest this year.

MINNEAPOLIS, May 31.—The news this
morning was generally bearish, and open

were 1 -18 to 2% lower for Sept. and July
respectively. Two days of almost perfect
weather and no rain of any consequence
excepting in the Ohio Valley, and fine
and warmer weather forecasted for to
morrow. Liverpool opening cable to 1
lower, closeing 1-8 lower, Berlin closed
1-8 lower and Buda Pesth 2c higher. Two

Bradstreets worlds visible gave a decrease
of 5,600.000 bushels. This item and the
hardening of May on finial settlements
were about the only sustaining influences,
and it was a see saw game all day
for the futures. The record breaking
price on 129 was reached for the May
option In Minneapolis. It look« like any
