THE Niles Tool Works attempted to have the government compel the molders to go"back to work, because it was government contracts. Gov eminent contracts should be on the eight hour basis by law and the Niles Company had not abided by it. Hence the molders have ot returned to work and cannot be compelled to work on government contracts more than eight hours per day. V WITH the building of a million dollar residence and the giving of $25,000 to this and $10,000 to that cause the buying of automobiles, motor boats, private yachts and goodness only kno*s what else, how can you men, who are on strike, expect a man to pay you living wages. Shame on you, the next thing, you will be expecting to make enough money to buv meat for yourself and family. By what right do you ask this, you'll be wanting to pin the boys down to wheie all they will have for breakfast, along about the time the snow is a foot deep and the temperature about twenty below Zero, will be porter house steak, u s o o s s a w e i e s a n creaui Why think of it, old Peter G. came in here 25 years ago with nothing and now he is only rated at nearly ten millions. Give him a chance. Shame on yon. IT WA3 with much interest we read this week, and no doubt will be by all the Champion employes that the entire Peter G. Thomson family ia now comfortably settled for the summer in their respective cottages, at Charlevoix, Mich We note in the article that Peter Jr. went over to Charlevoix from Toledo ir. his high ever motor boat. We also note that Logan had a new 225 horse power motor boat built at Milwaukee. This boat is to be the highest powered on the northern lakes. Of course these things are mere toys for the amusemet of the boys No doubt papa will buy Alex the finest yacht on the iakes to play with. The boys must have some amusement after their hard work of two and three hours a day for several months durirg the long winter and you can expect them to play with automobiles all the time it gets monotonous hence the change to mo'or boats and private yachts. It was with much relief that the M.AU. U t'A.'lL.U Y U k 5 1 V V O O strikers learned that the family is now comfortably settled along the lakes as it was feared that they might have to put up all summer in that little old stuffy uncomfor table million dollar shack at Col lege Hill, which, according to the Cincinnati gas department only burns about $194 worth of gas per mouth fur cooking and heating EXTRA SPECIAL "23" SKIDOO! .9 Prices on Ladies' Slippers, sizes 2%, 3, 3#, 4, 4Tan, Gun t| f) ft Another lot of bronze kid pumps, patent vamp, white calf top, v i L« w grey top and black cloth top, worth $4.00 to $5.00. Take your water for the bath. You notice we don't accuse them of using gas for lighting, no, no, they are wil ling to put up with electricity foi this purpose. Now that it is certain that the family is comfortably settled for the summer and not to be worried about, many of the strikers and their families will wend their way to the various summer resorts here a-bouts. Many of them going to Lagoon Matthias on the banks et the beautiful Miami and from there to the beautiful resort De Oiilinger via Four Mile in their high pow ered fiat boats. These boats have been equipped with such powerful engines as the S .Fish, James Worsham and Dave Scott for propelling power. "WE will never deal with, nor recognize unionism.'* That's what several foundry and mill owners of this city are credited with saying. That's what the Dayton Street Railway official said but after a strike of the employes of that com pany, lasting two weeks, the com pany was only too glad to receive a committee representing the union Within twenty-four hours an £gree ment was reached wherein the com pany granted everything the men asked for. The company agrees that the men may maintain their union it will deal with the employes through their executive committee. The sliding scale remains effective, with a maximum of 32 cents per hour The men will receive price and a half for overtime. And why shouldn't the union or the organization of the employee be recognized as well as that of the employer. What is the manufac turers' association, but an immense uniou. An immense union with brains and money behind it as against brains and brawn back of the union of the workingman. And while we know ttiat mouey and load? of it, is back of that powerful union, the manufacturers association, and are willing to ad mit that money will buy most any thing, including scabs and strike breakers, yet there is one thing that it can not buy, a thing held most dear and above everything else by all true members of organ ized labor, and that is PRINCI PLE. And when these men who are around here trying to buy up some of the men who are connected with the strikes, which are now in our city, get through, they will be wil ling to admit that the money of the association can't hold a candle to the power of PRINCIPLE.

The foregoing remark is credited to one of the foreman in the Niles Foun dry and was made in the presence of emplyes of the company. The PRESS had knowledge of this remark having been made, two weeks ago, but refrained from pub lishing it simply to avoid any fur ther sentiment of bitternes against the company that the knowledge of buch remark having been made by a representative of the company might create. But new that events prove that this man evidently knew what e was talking about, the PRESS believes it is only fair to the men to make known to the public to just what extent the company ^tends going to gain their point. They will stop j».t uothiog. Whose blood do they intend shedding Not the company officials! Not the bosses or foremen, that you can bet on. Whose blood then do they intend shedding Do they intend shedding the blood of these men who have toiled for years and years in the foundry of this corporation and given up the best days of their ives, and from whosa earnings the company has been able to build up this immense institution and the officials thereof enjoy all the com forts and luxuries of the world, in the meantime paying the men a oare existing wage Or do they intend shedding the blood of these poor simps they brought in here Sunday and herded in the Atlas Hotel. These thugs and gunmeu, thieves and crooks and scum of the earth gathered from all corners of the world whom they hired to come in here and take the jobs of honest and decent clean citizens. We ask the public and the citi zens of Hamilton: What do you think of a firm or corporation who will import into your city a lot of men, the lowest type ei men in the world, whose reputation is such that during their stay in your city your mother, your wife, your daughter or your sister don't dare to walk the streets unaccompanied and during whose stay in the city you don't dare to go to sleep at night. Men who bring riot and disorder with them wherever they go. This is the caliber of men, Mr Citizen, that the Niles Tool Works Company brought in last Sunday and installed them as their guests at the Hotel Atlas. THE same old cry of "the troops are coming" was again heard in every nook and corner uf the city Monday. This cry is always flount ed in the faces of the people in time of a strike, where men are out of employment for better wages and working conditions. This is the old stereotyped slogan of the soft heads that oppose organized labor wherever and whenever possible Since the local molders have ac cepted the challenge of the unfair employers of labor in Hamilton and have blocked their game of import ing strike breakers into the city, an appeal has gone forth from some source to Governor Cox to send 2. v 421 S. Second St troops here. The Information re ceived by Governor Cox through this source must have been to the effect "that the union molders and the citizens of Hamilton were wrecking the town, burning the buildings, and killing the people." At least the Governor sent a carefully worded telegram to Mayor John Holzberger and which was printed in the Evening Journal Of Tuesday night, headed, "The al most total lack of effort to preserve order in Hamilton Monday caused Gov. Cox to send a sharp telegram to Mayor Holzberger, and the m4s sage reads as follows: "We have advices that your com munity is in the midst of disorder and that the police department, which is under your control, is not making the proper effort to restrain unlawful elements. 1 shall have to insist upon you and every au thority subordinate to your office exercising the fullest power to re store peace and good order. If you do your full duty and fail to accom plish what is requested, then it is my suggestion and direction that you acquaint the county sheriff with the situation and ask him to swear in deputy sheriffs. The full strength of your law-abiding citi zenship should be availed of. I am convinced that the character and resources of Hamilton are sufficient to meet this emergency, but the leadership is upon you. I would be lacking in candor not to advise you now that I shall expect you to do your duty promptly and effi ciently. "James M. Cox." Who advised the Governor that disorder was in our midst that he should have sent the Mayor of Hamilton a telegram of this nature. Union men are coavinced that none of the manufacturers informed the Governor that disorder was in our midst and that the police were not doing their utmost to restrain un lawful elements. Somebody has misinfermed the Governor and the trades unionists are of the opinion that some slick and sly politician sent the infor mation to Governor Cox for the purpose of discrediting Mayor Holzberger. That kind of a citi zen would also use the Governor in times of strike to further his politi cal ends to bring about a condition in Hamilton. These kind of politicians are among us and they are as much against the laboring people as the unfair manufacturer is who will uut meet tehin face to face. The trade unionists have expressed themselves that whoever sent the word to Gov. Cox misinformed him as to the facts and for political purposes. The only disorder here on Sun day was the assault on two sHke breakers who were imported here to kill union men and to take their jobs. Guns were found on some of these strike breakers which veri fies this statement. There was no disorder outside of that and no buildings were burned and no win dows or property was damaged. There was no cause for such in formation being sent to Goveinor Cox and no such telegram should have been sent. The Mayor and the police did their duty Sunday night and every one of the gang of strikebreakers that were housed in the Hotel Atlas were es corted safely to the depot upon their own request. Chief Strieker requested that the molders agree to allow the strike breakers to leave the city which was accepted by the molders and the 'men left Sunday night at 9:40 for Cincinnati. After that there has been no disorder and there has never been a time when our police force has not been equal to the occasion. As far as can be seen by all fair minded people the police have done their duty in the past week and they should be commended for the splendid work they did in getting the strikebreakers to leave.
