The published reports of the Inter national Typographical Union, Issued from Indianapolis, make a very re markable showing and put that or ganization high on the honor roll of America for the great war. Forty-one hundred journeyman members of the union and 700 ap prentices are in the military and naval force* of the Unted States and Can ada; seventy-five members already have paid with their lives for their revption to their country; the union has paid $22,000 mortuary benefits to the widows, orphans and mothers of these men; the union, through its ex ecutive couneil, has invested 190,000 in the liberty loans, and subordinate local unions and individual members have invested 13,000,000 in the liberty loans. Keeps Up Peace Activities These are wartime activities. Dur ing the same period the Interna tional Typographical Union has con tinued all its ordinary benefit works. It has paid over $350,000 to old a^e pensioners, over $300,000 in mortuary benefits and $170,000 to the Union Printers' Home at Colorado Springs. Every dollar has been paid by mem bers of the organisation in the form of regular dues and assessments. The union neither solicits nor ac cepts contributions to its benefit funds. During the same period the union has expended only $1,200 for strike expenses. The union acts in , thoroughgoing, patriotic fashion on | the conviction that there should be no strikes or lockouts during the j war. Its officers regard themselves as volunteers in the Army for the preservation of Industrial peace, at I least for the duration of the war, I and I hope for long after the war. Offers Striking Contrast. Such conduct offers a striking con trast to the action of certain cor porations, which, during this war, have refused to permit their employes to organize. Labor has as much right as capital to organize. It is tyranny to forbid the exercise of this right. Just as it is tyranny to misuse the power acquired by organisation. The people of the United States do not believe in tyranny, and do believe in co-operation. The International Typographical Union has offered an admirable example of Americanism and patriotism. Its attitude is typical of the atti tude of organised labor generally. Hats off to the International Typo graphical Union, and hats off to the working men and working women of the United States.

To the Editor of Tile Rt?r: Why should the District of Columbia lose $6,000 or more on account of having Its coal hauled by the Interior Depart ment? This Is what will happen If sundry civil bill H. R. 12441 Is allowed to pass as it now reads. Th* Interior Department estimates It will cost 79 cants per ton to distribute coal this year, plus an additional coat of 28 cents per (on, for all reloading from ?round reserve. A hauling contractor has bid .(04 cents per ton for distributing and guarantee ing weights on eoal for the District of Columbia, which will aava $(,000 If ac cepted. If a hauling contractor can save this much for the District of Columbia, it Is practically assured that the united States government would aava $47,500 for Its work, on the same baala of fig ures, provided hauling contractors are allowed to bid on this work. We respectfully request that this bill he amended by Congress, allowing the District to accept Ita bid, and the In terior Department Instructed to aslc for blda on th* hauling of oaal from lta ter minal* by hauling contractors and the bid be awarded to tha lowest respon sible bidder. TRUCK OWNIRff ASSOCIATION. A. D. V. BURR, President r WANTS CANADA TO BE IN PAN-AMERICAN UNION Buenos Aires Project Is Advocated by John Barrett?-Urges Every thing to Promote Friendship. Speaking: of the project for a Pan American Union in Buenos Aires to include Canada, John Barrett, director general of the Pan-American Union in Washington, said today: "Inasmuch as this project is unoffi cial and popular in its idea, there is nothing in it that conflicts with the Pan-American Union, the official in ternational organization of all the American repubfics in Washington; and, therefore, there can be no opposi tion on the part of the latter toward the forwarding of a movement of this kind. Everything that can be done to awaken popular interest throughout the Americas in practical pan-Ameri canism is deserving of consideration.

The wage advances are binding upon nineteen companies and affect the membership of eight unions. The new scales, running from to 33 per cent over schedules established in October. 1917, give inside day workers the low est rate of 38 cents per hour, increas ing for more skilled trades to a maxi mum of 50 cents per hour fpr me chanical repair men.

An arrangement is made for revision of the scales on January 1 and July i of each year, in accordance with rise or decline of commodity prices. A minimum of 3.1 cents a pound for news print paper was fixed June 19 by the Federal Trade Commission, the previous figure having been 3 cents.

BOB CURRIER: "Oh, I've been laid up for several weeks it's pretty good to get out again too, lean tell you." BILLY: "For heaven's sake? not hospital?" BOB: "Yes sir, and I just dodged an operation." ?"What was the trouble?" ?"Why, Billy, the doctors called it some awful name, but it was nothing more or less than a "clog" in my in testines; waste that wouldn't move ? poisoning me ? breedinga fine lineof serious diseases." ?"What did they do to you up at St. John's?" ?"They were all ready to ope rate for appendicitis. That food waste had accumulated in the large intestine, where the appendix is. I had had pains, and I always tried to cure them with pills or salts. That only shook up my sys tem?flushed it hard? and left that poisonous waste right there, dryer and harder than ever. Taking a pill for for that condition is like driving your car up Ten Mile Hill to get the carbon out of the cylinders." ?"That's right." ?"Well, the doctor said "We'll see if we can't move that obstruction naturally before we try to operate." He put me on my back, and I watched the clock, counted my fingers, ate a diet and took Nujol. The Nujol soft ened that dry mass, moved it on, and after a while I be gan to be regular?my sys tem is my clock now. I take a little Nujol morning and night just before tooth brushing and I really don't know what it is to feel low. Pleasant to take too." ?"What does the Nujol do?" A Curbstone Conversion ?"Simply softens the con tents of the bowels?with out in any way interfering with digestion?and lubri cates the ashes easily along the intestines. It's not al> sorbed. You get rid of every drop you take. For a man who doesn't exercise much, or who works so hard that he hasn't time to keep his insides as clean as his collar, it just helps nature out, see?" ?"Sure (he twists the self starter) I'll bet there are thousands of men right now in the same shape you were in. Onlv one of them knows it and he just found it out Hop in!" ?"Where you bound, Billy?" ?"I'm going to take you down to the drug store, and then if you're real good and you help me buy one bottle of Nujol, we'll go out and shoot about nine holes be fore supper.
