Ull }? m Toun « of secre

ton s delegate to. the American federa
tion of labor.. The next session of the
SffiSSiJ' 4 WUI be held in Phlla*el
.^^SSfce- night: of the closing day of
vie session, which lasted four days,
during which time the delegates trans
acted a great deal of business of gen
o^, i n , ter «st to the order, the officers
ana delegates were the guests of the
fean^ Francisco union, local No. *8, at a
high jinks, in Jefferson Square hall,
where there was presented an enter
taining program of vaudeville num
bers, a series of amateur boxing
matches and addresses by the newly
Installed officers and by P. H. Mc-
Carthy, president, and O. A. Tveltmoe,
secretary, of the building trades coun
cil and Charles A. Nelson. This affair,
well planned and carded out, was un
der the direction 6t F. B. Hambridge
as sire of the Jinks, C. D. 1 Jump, L>
Connors, D. J. Murphy, Charles Fltz-
Patrick and John Buckley.
The officers mdv delegates In their
talks on that evening expressed them
selves as well pleased with the recep
tion they received on their arrival and
during their sta> in the city, being
particularly pleased with the automo
bile tour of the city to all points of
interest, also the excursion on the bay,
wmen gave them a more comprehens
\u2666I 6 Of what San Francisco bay is
than they had ever, acquired by read
ing and hearing descriptions. The of
ficers expressed themselves strongly
in their belief that there\ Is an exceed
ingly^ bright future for San Francisco.
Several weeks ago F. J. Waterman,
about 80 years of age, an old time
member of typographical union No. 21.
met with an accident, fracturing a rib,
and- was taken in, charge by the union.
We sent him to the best hospital." said
Will J. French, secretary of the union,
yesterday, "and had him in care, for
a month. In the meantime we made
an application to have him admitted to
the union printers* home at Colorado
Springs. The application has been favor
ably passed upon and in a short time he
will^be sent there, where he may pass
the remainder of his days ,free from
care. This Is one of the instances that
show the value of membership in a
union like ours. The old man has no
one to care for him, and In all probabil
ity he would have been sent to the city
and county hospital, and It Is/doubtful
if he would have received the attention
that he did In the one we sent him to.
It is a pleasure to note how grateful
the old gentleman Is for what was done
for him."

The garment makers' union anounces

In a letter addressed to the labor
organizations the American federation
of labor says:"
The trade onions are tbe reflects In organ
lred, crystallized form of th« best tbougbt, ac
tlrtty and bopes of the wage, workers. They
represent the aggregate expression of discontent
of labor with existing economic, social - and
political nji*rule. The trade nuions are exactly
what the wage worker* are, and can be made e>r
actly what they may please -to make tfcem.
ActiTe or sluggish; keen or dull; narrow' or
broad gauged, Jnst as the members are lnteilec
tual or otherwise. But. represent as they may
either of these alternatives, the trade -«n.ion Is
tbe best form of organization for the. toilers 'to
protect- their present Interests, as well as to
work oat tlielr salTation from all wrong.
The report of W. J. K. Kenney, named
by the court as receiver of the electrical
workers' union of Manhattan some
months ago, was made public recently/
It shows that between December, 1905,"
and March of the present yeau, the
total Income of the union was $35,833
and the total expenditures $36,712. Of
this (19,298 went,to certain officers. of
the union, cays Mr. Kenney. He adds
that ""it would be useless to pursue the
men responsible for the diversion; of
the funds by: civil suits/ they being de
pendent, on their earnings; hence,
judgments would be worthless."

Our old friend. "The- Prince of PII- ']
sen." wears well with • Now in i
its sixth season, last- evening at. the
Van i Ness theater It* provoked hardly
less enthusiasm than marked } its first
San Francisco ; presentation four years
ago at the Columbia.

But we miss Jess Dandy as Hans
Wagner, for his personality had much
to do with making the brewer from
"Zlnzlhnatl" a .striking character cre
ation. The. new man In the ; role, Dan
Mason,"- is comparatively: lacking ; ,most
of the qualities In'whlchMr. Dandy was
strong.; Chief of . these was a^- natural
unctuousness of manner: which Mr.- Maf
son does not possess and seemingly can
not acquire. Something more I than*, an
English twisting dialect and an exagr j
gerated: Teutonic disguise is : essential
to the making of Hans Wagner as.tun
ny a' personage as Mr. Dandy made him.
Mr. Mason rolls, his *~r's" until". his
speech savors ; of croaking, \ and he ef- :
fects more ludicrous genuflections than
M»."r Dandy could' effect on' account, of
his embonpoint.- ! But the lines given
Mason to speak and sing and the "busi
ness" allotted to . him arc -sufficiently
amusing to prevent dullness.
Miss Reba' Dale, who plays the
Widow Crocker, Is a, plump ''young
woman, with a winning, smile, a vlva :
clous temperament and a defective, sing
ing voice. Miss Qctavia-Broske, as the
Vassar girl, is, •\u25a0.wlnsome'ly> wfllowy of
form, knows How to make the best of
her splendid ; eyes and \ teeth \ and , has a
church choir soprano that Is admirably

drowned had it'not : been. for a beautiful
young ?.woman;who£noted his/ distress
and % hastened *' to his "% rescue. t Stanton
was swimming off .the shores of Santa

the; shoulder: went out.of place."; -

He k thought of - his ' home, \u25a0 his a Ins and
of his past ilife" and' he : shudered . at tha
thought of the tuture, when his rescuer
arrived. She • hauled him : back to shoal
water, and- therf'dtsappeared In the surf.

about' him to 'give, the young, lady; and
she, too, was similarly unprovided. He

In .Washington. The opening, of ..the
Flathead reservation will also, attract
a ; number; of 'settlers. This rich land
will be ready i for entry next summer."
J; The, next .three months will be busy
and \u25a0 anxious ones for the transporta
