Judge William H. Taft this
strong language here In his labor
speech at Table Rock. Neb., on Oct. 1:
"Now some ordinary, cheap common
liar has devoted himself to the busi
ness of running around the country
and saying that I am in favor of pay
ing a laboring man a dollar a day and
that I have -aid that that is enough.
1 was at the l*ead of the Panama canal
for four years and we pay steam shov
el men down there $250 a month. As
I figure that out it makes a little more
than one dollarr a day. Anybody that
says I ever made that remark is a liar
and the man who believes him is a fool,
for why under heaven I should say
that cannot understand, or In what
connection or under what circum
stances."

Many Will Resume.
Iron and steel plants of the coujftry to
prepare for resumption by Oct. 1. A
plan has been evolved at a- series of
meeetings in New York to get t^e jobr
bers and dealers to stock up and not
wait until after election. So fully
100,000 idle Iron and steel workers of
the country will find employment im
mediately.
Plants of the big steel companies in
We'st Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Il
linois ana Southern states which have
been working only part time or have
been entirely id^e will be the principal
beneficiaries. Orders have also been
issued by the United State Steel cor
portation to rush work on machinery
for the Gary (Ind.) plant and many
engineering concerns that have been
trading along on part time have ord
ered their plants to resume double
turn and increased their working
forces. i

Labor, has for vyears been ctriving t6
bring about bejter methods in the
treatment of the prisoners at the JTet
ferson City penitentiary, and is now on
the eve of winning the contest In
which it has been so long and so earn
estly engaged. At the last session of
the state legislature a petition bearings
80,000 names was presented through
the Joint labor board with the resultn
that a commission composed of State
Senators Frank McDavid. Henry Mry*
Eads and John L. Bradley was ap
pointed and i-iithoriaed to visit others
states and inspect the various systems
of treating prisoners in vogue in them.
This commission is now ready to
port and will recommend that the New.
Tprk plan be adopted by the state of!
Missouri. The republican and demo-'
cratic platforms pledge the state offic-.
ials to carry out the plan recommend
ed, and it seems certain that at la^t
the curse that has darkened the good
name of Missouri will be removed.

The designer of this car is H. E. Coffin for years chief designer of the Thomas Companies. No American designer will even claim to excel Him
in perfecting this car. He made two trips to,Europe to compare ideas with the world's best
engineers.' This is not
makeshift—not a made-over model/cut down to meet this priced
This/s the most up-to-date car on the market. Every principle is in accord with the latest practice, in the costliest cars in the world.
But we cannot pake half enough. Thousands who want them, and who delay, will need to take second choice V
We urge you, therefore, to see your dealer now. The best way is to get immediate delivery, and utilize the Fall mpnths. Next-Spring, in the
rush, there will be long delays. And many will decide too late.
True, other
cars will sell at this price or below it. But they are not in this class. Please compare them and see.
The time to decide is now. When such a car sells at such a price, the supply cannot last through the season.. Ask for our catalog now.
This chans* in name involves no change in ownership, personnel or minagem*«t, It is simply made to avoid the confusion of two Thomas concerns operating on separate lintfk,

but during the long fall and winter
evenings there will be plenty of time
for good meetings and it is the plan
to make the coming months record
breakers in the way of increasing the
membership of every organised union
in the city, and it is the desire of the
leaders of union labor in the city to
have Fargo by spring the best organis
ed city of its size in the world.
Fewer Italians Coming.
Italian immigration to thft United
States is still decreasing. During
August only 4,362 emigrants left Italy
for America, while 20,582 returned
home. The nujnber of Italian emi
grants to North and South America
from Jan. 1 to Aug. 31 was 81,
116, while in the same period 203,449
returned to their native land. Of this
number 194,448 were from the United
states.
Quiet Week in Locals.
•TWs has been a. quiet •week in local
union'circles. There were oWy ttiM
regular meetings scheduled for this
week. The Locomotive engineers on
Sunday Bricklayers who meet every
Wednesday and leather worjkers who
meet on Fridays. Each of the unions
held short sessions and they are each
planning for a revival of interest for
the coming winter months when more
time can be given to ^organization
work, etc.

ists, said last Saturday i.ight that the
action of the executive board in call
ing off the strike was due primarily to
industrial conditions and, also, to thf
fact that there did not now seem to be
reasonable ground for complaint ol
discrimination.
"Mutual concessions," he said, "have
been made which render the continu
ance of a strike unnecessary. Except
for about 100, all of the machinists
who originally walked out now have
other employment. In tim* things #111

the outcome will be entirely satisfac
