HE HAD TOO MUCH EVIDENCE
FINED FIFTEEN DOLLARS
Milwaukee, Wis., May 6. Henry
Daneman was thirsty. He .had no
money but "he owned a great, big,
shiny tin star. So he pinned the star
in a prominent place on his coat this
morning and began a series of social
calls on the proprietors, of South Side
saloons. He told them that he was
a government inspector and was de
tailed to see that all whisky, bottles
bore the war tax stamp. He collected
several bottles as "evidence."
All would have gone well if Henry
hadn't tested the evidence. But he
did and was arrested for drunken
ness. Fined $15.

IRONWORKERS SAY B. T. C. WILL
The ironworkers are not at odds
with the Building Trades CounciL -Such
a rumor was promptly de- v
nied by officials of the iron
workers, who say that far from being
on the outs with the parent organiza
tion they are depending on the B. T.
C. to be of great aid in gaining their
point to get jurisdiction over concrete-steel
The 1913 Seattle national conven
tion of the Building Trades Deport
ment awarded jurisdiction over concrete-steel
work to the ironworkers.
This work has been done by the,.,
building laborers. In 75 per cent of
the cities of America the laborers
have already relinquished jurisdiction
over this work.
Last year the ironworkers struck
for the work. It developed that the
laborers had contracts with employ
ers for concrete-steel work till April
30, 1915. So, at the suggestion of
the B. T. C, the ironworkers men re
turned to their jobs. Meanwhile they
entered into an agreement with the
B. T. C. that the concrete-steel work
should be given to them as -soon as
the laborers' contracts ended.
The laborers' contracts expired
April 30. They want to continue
doing the work and the contractors
want them to have it, for laborers
get 40 cents an hour and ironworkers
get 68 cents. But the iron men now
claim right to the work and believe
the B. T. C. will stand willingly be- jJT
hind them. The B. F, G. has not in
dicated that it will dodge the issue,
say iron men officials.
Every ironworker official, including
Secretary Richard Houlihan, seems
satisfied that the B T. C. will come
to the bajwhen the proper moment
arrives and knock out a victory for
