TH E County Commissioners awarded the contract for the new Tuberculosis hospital to George Lingler Wednesday. This is the hospital that the labor unions hav been asking the commissirneis for the p?st year to build While it is not exactly what th^ frade union ists expected ®r what the county needs, yet it is a step ir the right directkm to a larger and better hos pital. The contractor will com plete the building in ninety day and this is none too soon as many patients are waiting to enter the in stitution. AT THE last meeting of the Cen tral i/abor Council the delegates from the different affiliated unions were instructed to ask their organ izations, whether they wanted an other Labor Day parade and outing this year. From reports we have from unions tbat hare met in th past week, it rppears that the un ions are heartily in favor of a cele bration. While seme few union men can not see the necessity of a Labor Day celebration yet ihe vast majority think that we should con tinue our Labor Day Outings. The Labor Day parade we find is the best advertisement that the labor unions ever had and to abandon the idea especially at this time would be ttnwise, and while we are march ing to show our colors, why not have an all day outing also. We HH favor the parade and outing for Iconceded the half holiday. Try our 15c and 25c Hosiery nineteen fifteen and hope tbat all the unions affiliated with the Cen tral Body do likewise. WORLD Of LA80R Workers iu breweries of Kansas City Mo., and their employers have signed a three year agreement Malsters, brewers, beer bottles and beer drivers will receive increases of #1 a week for two years and 1.50 the third year.

Boomer tells of the-.e conditions in Hawaii: "The Hawaiian employers of Filipino labor have met the law that was expected to discourage the exportation of labor from the islands by complying with its oner ous df mands.

The Chicago streei car strike, iuvclving 14,000 workers, is over. was settled by an agreement to arbitrate, and Tuesday noon the familiar roar of the elevated trains and the gongs of the surface cans were heard again. The appearance of tbe first sur face car, some hours after the ele vated trains were running, was the occasion of a demonstration in the downtown district. Windows of office buildings along the route were crowded with per sons who cheered the visible evi dence that the forty eight hour strike was at an end. Other cars followed with increas tng frequency and the drivers of van aud other vehicles wh'ch have been reaping a harvest in ttans porting the populati n began re turning to their regular vocations. The settlement was reached after an all night conference behind locked doors in the Mayor's office. It was attended by Mayor Tl omp son, the Aldermani Mediation Committee, the Grievance Commit tee of the unions and he Presi dents of the traction companies. The Arbitration Board will con sist of a representative of each side with Mayor Thompson the neutral member. The Mayor generally was credited with ending the strixe. "It is arbitration practically without qualifications," said the Mayor, when asked as to details of the agreement. The other ar bitrators ive not yet been named The strike was remarkable in that no violerce was traced to striker no arrests were necessary and for the good humor with which the piblic accepted it. Workers Advance Steadily. Racine, Wis, June 18.—In speech on "Labor Legislation,' before a large crowd of unionists in this city, Congressman Coope said: "Sentiment in regard to the workingman has changed entirely as is evidenced particularly by thi clause in the Clayton law: "The labor power of a human being is not acomrn dity or article of com merce. This sentiment will go 'round the world, the same as Thos Jefferson's declaration tbat 'all men are created equal and endowed with certain inalienable r'ghts. This declaration now adorns the walls of many school roons in Europe, aud has even spread to Japan." The speaker compared present conditions with those of but a few years ago, when men were im pi isoned for striking. At that time they could obtain no alien on the property they were woiking on and in Massachusetts there is case on record of a man being im prisoned for a debt of $4, declared the Congressman. Violate Contract Labor Act. Wilmington, Del., June 18.— Special agents of the federal de payment of labor have arrested 4 draughtsmen, following months of investigation of charges that alien workmen were employed in this city.

F. if L. Exhibit. Siu Francisco, June 18.—The A. F. of L., has one of the most attractive exhibi's at the Panama Pacific expositions writes Freder ick W. Ely, in the Evening Bulle tin, He says: "Taken as a whole, the exhibit is one of which the organized workers may justly feel proud. It is attracting the kttention of thcu sands of visitors daily, many of whom are evidently seeking to know more about the principles, the aims and objects of the trade union movement. Many of these visitors are, apparently, from the liesure class. They ask all sorts of questions concerning the labor movement and frequently express sympathy and friendship for the workers and their case. They go away armed with labor literature. "The exhibit should, and doubt less will, arouse much interest" in the doings of organized labor. "Through its exhibit at the ex position the American Federation of Labor is doing a work that will surely be productive of results that will be helpful to the workers in their struggle lor justice and liberty." Privati Detectives Scored. Philadelphia, Juae 18.— In di* missing tbe suit of a private deiee tive, Judge MacNeile, iu municipal court, scored the practice (if private detectives in seeking to prove charges ef wrongdoings against in nocent persons "This defective," said the court, "appears to have advised this busi ness house that be was in posesMon of evidence to prove an employe a thief, whereupon a contract was entered into, using the words "will pay $300 if employe is proved to be a thief." "It appears that, contrary to what the detective said, he did net have tbe evidence. He then set about to prove the man a thief. This would give rise to all sorts of dangerous consequences, not only to unfortunate employes, but to employers as well, who might easily become involved as a result of the detective's work. This is a prac tice that is going on entirely too much, and must be broken up." Will Invoke Referendum. Columbus, Ohio, June 18—The executive committee of district No. 6 Ohio miners, have voted in fivor of conducting a referendum against the Gallagher bill, which repeals the Green anti screen law. Obio miners are now working under the run cf mine system (pay for all coal mined,) which the Green law provided for, and which the miners made universal iu this state by re cently winning a fourteen months strike in southeastern Ohio. While there is still a small likelihood of the run of mine system being aban dmed, the Gallagher law is a con stant menace thatobjectional work ing conditions may be attempted at the expiration of present con tracts. The miners are aroused at the repeal of the Green law because its opponents made no attempt to give the law a fair trial. BOMS of Contention In Cliicago Strike. The companies conceded these points in advance of arbitration: 1. Trippers, that is men who are given one run in the morning rush and another at night, to be elim inated, thus giving every trainman a regular job. 2.

South western *vheat fields will not suffer because of lack of workers, according to the following from tbe Labor Unit, of this city: "Nearly one thousand letters a day have been coming to the state labor department the past week making inquiry with reference to the wheat harvest in Oklahoma. These letters are coming from every section of the United States and are in response to notices in the newspapers that Oklahoma will need 16,000 to 20,000 men for tbe harvest. "Young lawyers from Georgia, college boys from Conneticut, ex perienced wheat barvesteis from Minnesota and Illinois, clerks from Washington, D. C., men from every walk of life, are sending in appli cations to get in on the cutting of the wheat. "Letters have been coming in regularly for a month askiug about the prospect of work, but this week's avalanche of mail is the be ginning of teal rush far jobs." Will Probe Land Values. San Francisco, June 18.—For the purpose of refuting the claim that so called high wage rates of union workmen are keeping manu facturers away from this city, the Labor Council has instructed a committee to investigate real es tate values in San Francisco as compared with other cities of equal size. The unionists insist that real estate owners and agents are re sponsible for such conditions. Walking Lengthens Life. Was) ington, June 18.—The United States public health service has issued a warning that failure to walk shortens life. The medics make this plea for more pedestrians "The death rate after the age of 40 is increasing, in spite cf more sanitary modes of living. The ex pectation of life after 40 is less than it was thirty years ago. This is du^ largely to increased prevalence of the diseases of degeneration. "Take daily exercise. Have a hobby that gets you out of doors. Walk for the sake of walking. Join a walking club and keep your weekly score of miles. Gymnasium work is good for those who like it and can afford it, but avoid heavy athletics. You may not burn the family carriage, a s Benjamin Frenklin suggesteed, but at least, as he advised, walk, walk." xsnmm "actory No •I Covers ©very field of knowl edge.

One morn ing a child was presented for baptism whose name was giveu by the parents, Makia when the ceremony was fin ished the parents assured the doctor that they hiid named the baby for him. "But my name is not Michael," said the doctor, supposing Mikia to be aim ed thereat "We always hear your wife cgll you Mikia," answered the mother.
