JERE Sullivan, president of the
International Bartenders' Union,
says: "This is not the time for bar
tenders to quibble over small mat­
ters, but it is the time for every
bartender to get out and hustle for
his job." This statement from Sul
livan is broad and should go straight
home to every man connected in
any way with the liquor and saloon
business. The bartenders should
be on the job every minute up un
til and including November 3rd.
There should be no drones in this
work and it will take the best kind
of work to bring the results re­
quired on election day. Your JOB

A few nights ago some of the
citizens of the second ward, mostly
young boys, resented the state
ments made by same of the dry
speakers who spoke in that section
of the city. The people of the sec

these boys did, but when ministers
of the gospel make statements that
the working class who are employ­
ed in saloons should be buried alive*
there should be no surprise when
the people of any community rebel
agai 1st such remarks. The wets

A few days ago the state indns
trial commission awarded to Mrs
Katheiine Brinker, of 507 N. 3rd
St., widow of the late Herman
Brinker, $8,744. Mrs. Brinker re
ceives this money through the
Workman's Compensation Law
which law was placed on the sta
tute books of the state by the LA
BOR UNIONS. What would Mrs.
Brinker have received had it not
been for this law, would the obso
lete liability insurance companies
that one time operated in thi* state
compensated her for the loss of her
husband? No not a penny would
she have received. It is likely that
the Black & Clawson Co. would
have done something for Mrs. Brin
ker but the liability companies
would have compelled her to resort
to the courts and there she would
have lost out. The Workman's
Compensation Law is like an angel
from heaven to the many widows
in the state, who have been unfor
tunate in loosing the bread winner

people of Butler County are
of the opinion that the work on the
new High and Main St. bridge is
progressing slowly and that the
contractor will not complete it on
the specified time. There should
be no worry as the contractor is
stalling all he can for fear he will
com pie: e the bridge before time and
the public will get next. By the
way the great contractor is very
much vexed at the union men for
giving him a little publicity on
changing his mind. He says he
did not change his mind after he
promised to employ union carpen
ters on the job. The business a
gent of the carpenter's union says
he did promise, and the business
agent of the painters who were both
on the committee to meet with the
commissioners says he promised,
and then he told them that he had
changed his mind. He is so
wrought up over the truth that he
got real mussy in an up town cafe
last Thursday night and bystanders
say he let out some awful language
after there were no union men pres
ent. We want to inform the great
contractor that it is this kind of
promises and language that is
breeding socialists, anarchists and
\V. Ws. This paper is too clean
to publish the language.

Appeals To His Fellow
It is not merely a question of
continuing our organization, it is a
question of being able to have
legalized occupation to follow after
November election, we are due to
get right on the job, if you are not
already there. There is real hard
work before us, we cai't afford to
leave our share of the work to oth
ers, for even now we are confronted
with a superior force and it is going
to take every ounce of energy of
every member to overcome the work
which ha? been accomplished by
the anti's during their several years
of preparation. Our opponents
among the sumptuary legislation
advocates number many thousand
We can not hope to expect to a
chieve the results which will per
mit our continuation as catering
industry employes by wishing for
victory. We must either get in
line with oui sleeves rolled up and
do a man's task in the coming con
test, or else lay down and have the
citizens of our respective commun
ities calolog us as fellows with a
yellow stieak which any city or
town would be glad to get rid of.
To reiterate the November election
means bread and butter to you and
I and those who are depending on
us. Choke off the silly stuff, let
the comedy rest for a few weeks,
wade into the fight with determin
ation and vim, stick to the last
minute and if we win, which we
hope and pray that we will, no one
will be quicker to render the real
workers a generous measure of
praises than the writer and the
friends ©f our International Union.
Keep everlasting in mind that we
must win and so conduct yourself
that no other result will be possible.
Once more I will say, chuck that
"give up" in the sewer and forget
it, let your mind embrace but one
thing to win in November, you
can't lose if you act and talk like
a winner.

Endorses Home ule
YounfStown, O., Oct. 15—The
Ohio State Federation of Labor
went on record in favor of the home
rule amendment to the constitution
at the session of the convention
Thursday. But one voice was
raised against the adoption of the
resolution favoring the home rule
amendment, John Robinson, of
Miss Nida Pangle, delegate
from Toledo, carried the convention
off its feet by her speech favoring
home rule, and it was several min
utes after her address before Chair
man Farrel could restore order.
The resolution adopted^was:
"Be it resolved, That the Ohio
State Federation of Labor, in con
vention assembled, again declares
against prohibition, and fully ap
proves the action of the Executive
Board in its recent reiteration of
the declaration of the Ohio State
Federation of Labor in favor of
home rule for cities, municipalities
and townships in the sale of liquors.
The resolution brought forth a
flood of oratory, led by Thomas H.
Mugavin, a delegate from Cincin
nati, who spoke in favor of the
adoption of the resolution, and
when he concluded his speech the
convention broke into a tumult of

At the meeting held by ths

app ications were receivtd from
several more. The clerks are mak

attended the meeting and gave the
new applicants some good s und
facts on the benefits of the organ

agent of the Painters also attended
the meeting and gave the members
a little talk which was very well
received and appreciated. The
next meeting will be held Tuesday
night, October 27th. More clerks
will te taken in at this meeting.
John Cunneon, a member of
Mach'nists' Union of Chicago, has
been employed by the dry forces of
this countv to deliver speeches a
gainst the Home Rule amendment,
and for the Prohibitior amendment.
Cunneon has been visiting the diff
erent shops but has been receiving
little encouragement in appealing
to union men. The members of
labor unions in Hamilton consider
a man like Cunneon who will take
the stump to assist in the unfair
campaign of voting men out of em
ployment on the sams footing as a
scab. A scab is a man who will
take another man's job, and any
man who by his vote throws men
out of employment is no better than
a scab. John Cunneon you Tiave
violated your obligation.
