Young Victor Cayo,

New Fall merchandise
has been pouring into the
Boys' Section all through
the month of August and
schools find us in a very
fair shape to talk "new
business" to you.
All the new models and
colorings in Boys' School
Suits are here, including
blue serges. Sizes run
from age 6 to 18 and
prices are such as to suit
people of every station—
$2.50, $3.00, $3.50, $4.00
$5.00, $6.50, $7.50, $8.50,
$10, $12.50, $15 and $16.50.
Our best boys' suits are
man-tailored in the "Sam
peck" shops of New York
City, under sanitary con
ditions that make them
cost more than sweat-shop
stuff, but worth ever so
much more in comparison.
$4.90 continues to be the
price of our year-round
"Little Columbo" special
—an excellent school suit
with two pairs of pants
which is absolutely be
yond competition as far as
the happy combination of
low price and high value
is concerned. Co-operation
—that is the selling of
vast number of these
suits—is the successful so
lution of this welcome in
novation in merchandis
ing. The doing away of
cut-price sales reduces the
price to all, or raises the
quality, if you prefer to
express it thus.

stylish Lapel N or 1

Managers Refuse to Recognize
Unions and Boycott Will
ST. PAUL, Aug. 31.—The manager#
of the Minnesota state fair have
spurned organized labor's claim to
recognition at their hands, and organ
ized labor has decided to taboo the
state fair this year, no matter what
attractions it may offer.- Perhaps tihe
managers of the fair think the pa
tronage of organized labor is a mat
ter of small account, but their experi
ence in the past has not been such as
to justify them in this belief. A few
years ago the mer then in charge of
the fair turned a deaf ear to the ap
peals of the labor forces, and the at
tendance on their opening day then
fell off many thousands. The next
year, when they hearkened to labor,
to some extent at least, the loss was
much more than made up. The'man
agers may ignore the labor unions if
they wish, but they will find out in
the .long run, if not immediately, that
such a policy will not be profitable to
them. Organized labor can get along
without the fair and feel no loss.
Possibly the fair can get along with
out union labor and feel no loss, but
as there are more than 10,000 union
'workers in St. Paul alone such a re
sult does not seem probable.-^-Union

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 31.—American
Federation of Labor employes here
are bitter in their denunciation of the
pension plan of Swift & Co., the large
meat packing firm, has just an
nounced for its workers. They, claim
that it is nothing less than a scheme
to stop the workers from striking for
fear that they will lose such benefits
as the plan provides for them. At
present, a number of Swift employes
are involved in the local general meat
The plan became effective this
month. As a basis, a $2,000,000 fund
has been set apart by the firm, to
which it will add. "as .necessity re
quires. Employes will not .contribute
to the fund.
Men in the employ of the company
for twenty-five years shall be pen
sioned when they reach the age of 60.
Women who have ^worked for the
company 25 years shall be pensioned
at the age of 55. Employes, who re
tire on account of incapacity after 15
to 25 years' service shall be pensioned
on a basis of 1% per cent of the aver
age salary for the five-year period
preceding retirement, which must
consist of continuous service.
Pensions shall not exceed $2000 a
year and shall not be less than $240
What labor organizers object to
most strongly in: the plan is that there
is no provision which compels the
firm to pay-the pensions if it elects
not to do so in any case. At the same
time, it is pointed out that if the
workers try ,to secure higher wages by
striking. tlhe company, even if the men
win their strike and resume their
place, may claim that the men have
not been in 'continuous service' 25
years, and so will not be entitled to a
pension. Fear of this,, it is said, may
keep many of the older employes
from striking should a call for a walk

of workers being organized into ef
fective unions. The hypocrisy of the
railway owners was there again illus
trated, in their assumption that they
were standing out against the Brother
hoods in interest of the other railway
workers, when they admitted in an
other breath that to grant the de
mands of the Brotherhoods would
inevitably mean that they would en
courage other railway workers to de
mand and receive wages, hours and
conditions of work that the Brother
hoods had wrung frdm them.
In the difficulty that the President
of the United States is now having
Avith the errand boys of Wall Street
financiers, the people realize as never
before what organized labor is up
ogainst when it seeks justice and fair
dealing in its rjght to work and to
live. The power that controls the
great public service of transportation
sets itself against the power not only
of the workers, but of all the pub
lic, as represented in the government
at Washington. That power it not in
the hands of men who know the rail
road' business and know what trans
portation ought to be but it is in the
hands of a few "captains of finance"
who know no more about the railroad
business than they know about the
rights of labor. It is the hands of
such men as J. P. Morgan, who,
when asked by. Chairman Walsh of
the Commission on industrial Rela
tions "whether he thought $10 a week
for a dock workers was enough, re
plied, "Well, if that is all he can get

WASHINGTON. D. C.—The num
ber of aliens in this country over 21
years of age who have taken no steps
to become citizens increased from
900,000 in 1900 to 2,600,000 in 1910,
according to Senator Dillingthanm in
a speech last week in the 'senate. He
said that the latter figures exceed the
presidential vote of 15 western states
and that, it is both wise and necessary
for a literacy test to be applied to
this increasing number of immigrants.
"What does it mean," he asked, "to
have in this country 2,600,000 alien
born men—-I am not speaking of
women or children—who, ad late as
1910, had not taken a single step to
ward becoming American citizens,
but who, under our naturalization
laws, were subsantially all entitled to
become citizens of the United States?
What does it mean to have 2,600,000
men who are aliens, who are liable to
comt into full citizenship almost im
mediately? Do you realizs that this
vast volume of male aliens amounts to
one-seventh of all the votes cast in
the presidential election.of 1912? The
possibilities suggested by the presence
in this country of such a vast .num
ber of prospective, and to a large ex
tent uneducated, voters can only be
understood when I state that the en
tire presidential vote of California,
Oregon, Washington, Montana, Ida,-,
ho, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colo
rado, Arizona, New Mexico, North
Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and
Kansas in the election of 1912
amounted to 2,280,000 and yet ewe
had substantially that number of
alien-born men in the United States
on that date all ready to become citi
zens of the United States."
Senator Dillingham was a member
of the immigration commission, ap
pointed by congress to investigate this
question. He stated that agents of
the commission came in contact with
86,000 persons in the iron and steel
industry and found that the average
wage of these 86,000 persons was
$326 a year.
