WHEN TOMMY SQUAWKED "Will, did you take my umbrella? he asked of his son. "No, father." Did Mary?" "No, father, I didn't see it," said sister. Just then the younger brother came in. "I know where it is. I think sis ter's beau took it." "Why, Tommy," said sister, "he did not!" "Well, all I know," said Tommy "last night, as he was leaving I hearrd him to say to sister in the hell, 'I'm going to steal one tonight'." Paint It Now! "Save the Spanish trade unionists have just held the first national congress in six years. One of the principal subjects was that of civil liberties, on which strong resolutions were adopted. The United States Department of Labor reports that President Cleto Gonzales Viquez has vetoed the Sun day-closing law, and a law which sought to prohibit night work, both of which were recently passed by the Costa Rican Congress. Service of the American Railway Express Company in New York City was crippled on October 9 by an un authorized strike of several thousand men belonging to the Brotherhood of Railway and Steamship Clerks, whose president announced that the walkout had not been sanctioned under the union's laws. The Canadian Department of Labor is reported considering a proposad by the British Government for the set tlement of 20,000 British families on Canadian farms in the next ten years SUGGESTS EXECUTIVES TAKE CUT IN SALARIES Chicago, (I. L. N. S..—Suggesting that executives of western railroads could meet wage increase demands of their trainmen and conductors by cut ting their own salaries, George W Hunt, general chairman of the railway trainmen of the Oregon Short Line presented an exhibit before the gov ernment fact-finding commission, in session in Chicago. Hunt said that if the salaries of the executives and officers of all west em railroads were reduced $161 a year the reductions would provide enough money to allow an increase of between 6% and 7% per cent to the conductors and trainmen. His exhibit showed that the average salary of executives on the western roads in 1926 was $ 474 and that the average annual salary of a conductor is $3,000. Kenneth C. Burgess, attorney for the carriers, stated that the western railroads have lost $20,000,000 a year in receipts from motor competition.

Phone 426 The Hamilton Lumber Co. 940 Central Avenue AS THE WORKER SEES HISWORLD Summary and Digest of Important Events of the Week, Here and Abroad The seven unions in the New Bed ford, Mass., Textile Council October 6, voted to end the textile mill strike, which has been in effect for 25 weeks, accepting a proposition for a 5 per cent reduction in wages instead of the 10 per cent originally demanded by the Manufacturers' Association, coup led with an assurance that when any change in the wage schedule is pro posed in the future, 30 days' notice will be given to the operatives. FOR BEST GRADES AND SERVICE ON LUMBER AND BUILDING SUPPLIES Paper makers employed in mills at Kapuskasing, Ontario, went on strike October 5, in protest against the ac tion of the employers in bringing pa per makers from their mills in the United States under special immigra tion permits. The right of Canadian citizens who have employment on this side of the border to cross into the United States daily without an immigration visa was sustained October 8 when the Su preme Court refused to review deci sions of lower courts in point. The decision is of great importance to Buf falo, Detroit and all northern border cities. Expenditures for labor by the rail ways of the United States in the first half of 1928 showed a reduction of about $225,300,000 from the amount paid in wages in the first half of 1923 according to an estimate made by wage statistics of the Interstate Com merce Commission. CALLUS PLANS NEW POLITICAL PARTY Mexico City, (I. L. N. S.).—A semi official announcement, from usUally authoratative sources, declares that President Calles, after his term of of fice expires, will not accept a cabinet position, but will devote his energies to the organization of a "grand revo lutionary party," in line with the thought expressed in his recent ad dress to Congress. The proposal is to organize a na tional political party into which all •evolutionary factions may be admit ted and in which they can function. The party will, it is said, contain left, right and center blocs. One of its objects will be to obtain the seating of elected candidates. Who Is Backing Baker? Des Moines, Iowa.—Organized la boris asking who is behind the Presi dent's appointment of George T. Bak er of Davenport as a member of the emergency mediation board that will report to the President on the wage dispute between Western railroads and their conductor and trainmen em ployes. Mr. Baker is chairman of the State Board of Education. He is hostile to the building crafts locked out in Iowa City when they refused to accept non union conditions in the State Univer sity building projects. ANTI-UNION CONCERN CONCEALS LOW WAGES Chicago.—"I can't speak of wages, but our employes are well satisfied," James G. Condon assured the Illinois Commerce Commission in asking that the Chicago Motor Coach Company be permitted to operate on additional streets. Mr. Gordon represents the company, which does not permit employes to organize. HIGH COURT UPHOLDS WIRE TAPPING RULE Washington.—The United States Supreme Court refused to review its five-to-four decision of last term that evidence obtained by wire tapping could be used in criminal prosecutions. The minority decision held that the government has no right to commit an illegal act to secure a conviction. The case came up on the conviction of Seattle men for violating the Federal prohibition law. LAUNDRY WORKERS GAIN Tacoma, Wash.—Organized laundry workers are securing signatures to their new contract which calls for work betterments.
