THE BICmiOND PALLADIUM AJ8T SUN-TELEGRAM, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1910. BRYAU HAS LOST HIS POPULARITY III OLD II1DMIM Since His Turn Down in Ne braska It Is Quite Probable Indiana Democracy Will Not Invite Him. DEMOCRATIC LEADERS HOLD MEETING TODAY And Question Concerning Invi tation .to "Peerless One" Will Be the Subject of Much Debating. dlanapolls since Kern made bis fam ous speech at French Lick In which he practically buried Bis Shlvely batchet by praising Sbively In slowing terms. Shlvely is expected to have something to say in regard to this matter while in the city. indlanapolis, July 28. Prior to tie meeting of the democratic Ute com mlttee, at stats headquarters In this city, today, it was the understanding that the members of the committee would probably have a few things to ray on the proposition of whether Bryan shall make speeches In this state this rear. In view of the fact that his own party in ita sUte conven tion In his own state of Nebraska turned htm down cold. Tuesday, when be attempted to have the state plat form Include a plank favoring county option. The Nebraska democracy an nounced its opposition to county op tion. Just as the Indiana democracy has declared Its Intention to repeal the present county option law In this state In case they control the next legislature. Bryan worked aa hard and as vigorously for the adoption of a county option plank In the Nebras ka state platform aa he ever worked for free silver, and be lost out In about the same measure. That's Where the Rub Is. There was a rumor that some of the members of the state committee at the meeting today would question the wis dom of the campaign committee in deciding to Invite Bryan to speak In this state daring the campaign on be half of the democratic ticket. It Is said that some of the committee mem bers fear that It would be a ridiculous proposition to bring Bryan Into In diana to speak while standing on the wet platform of the democrats when In Nebraska he stood firm for county option. It was even suggested that tee might enter an' objection to the coming of Bryan, even if he Is will ing to come and take the chances of embarrassment. There Is said to be a plan on foot among the temperance people In some parts of the state to fire a lot of questions at Bryan If he speaks In support of the democratic ; platform declaration on the liquor question In this state this year. A man who Is In a position to know what he Is talking about said yester day: "I shall not be at all surprised to see some man in each of Bryan's crowds get up and ask him how he can preach county option in Nebraska and against it In Indiana. In fact. It Is almost a certainty that this will be done and I am anxious to see how he will answer If Shlvely Will Attend. Although Senator Shlvely had not figured on coming to Indianapolis be fore tomorrow, it was believed that he would come In today in time to attend at least a part of the meeting .of the ' committee. He was expected here last week when the campaign committee and the democratic state candidates met, but he did not show up. The first of this week the officials at the state headquarters tried for two days to get In touch with him before they were able to get an answer from him. Calls were made over both long dis tance teiepnone lines and finally a telegram was sent, and It was not un til several hours after the latter bad been dispatched that Shlvely answer ed. He said he would be here Friday morning, but later he got on a tele phone line and said be might possibly drop In today. When Shlvely arrives he will find John w. Kern absent. Kern is In Michigan on bis vacation. A good many persons have speculated on whether or not Kern left town to avoid meeting Shlvely when the lat ter came to town, but there Is nothing in this report Kern was ill and was obliged to go to Michigan a week or two earlier than he had planned. There Is not much danger of Kern seeking to avoid a meeting with Shlrely. Senator Shlvely has not been in In " EVILS OF FACTIONALISM.- Trades Uniens Should Present Solid Front to Their Foes. , There 1 altogether too much fac tionalism In tbe world of labor. Of course every faction seeks to keep In stock a shop worn set of alleged excuses for its failure to get In line wltb. the big family of unions, but none of tbem will stand analysis, be cause uo logical reason con be given to Justify any split in labor's ranks. Quarrels over personal opinions or ambitions are personal affairs and should not affect the attitude of the workers toward the labor movement, nor should tbey prevent the workers from 'fully realizing the value and ne cessity of unity. The moment a group of workers an nounce their Independence of the gen eral labor movement they convict them selves as being either ignorant or filled with selfishness of the narrow type tbat hopes to secure some temporary trivial advantage for a select few at the expense of tbe many. , The desire to bold office Is perhaps the most common cause of factions among unions, but It Is not a good reason. Tbe labor cause Is or vastly more Importance tban any Individuals in It. and when any alleged labor man advo cates division of the forces of labor it is pretty clear that such a man holds bis opinions and selfish interests as of more Importance than tbe cause. and tbat be is unworthy of support, Such differences of opinion as may exist between members of labor unions as to correct union laws or policy should always be settled within tbe union and never be made a pretext for factionalism. When differing opinions are discuss ed within tbe union, tbe discussion is educational and beneficial, because tbe constant grinding of one intellect against another is broadening In its effect, serves to put tbe adherents of each side on their mettle and very probably will result in correct action But if tbe union splits, each faction being composed of men wbo think alike. deprives both factions of tbe education al effect which can only come through debate. Thus there Is lost not only tbe unity essential to success, but also the broad educational Influence of discus alons based upon divergent opinions. Imagine tbat members of a union seek to make some change in union rules or laws and when defeated tbey secede. They "were very sure they were right, but when tbey seceded tbey took all the adherents of their pet re form out of tbe union and left tbe union to go unreformed. Now, assuming tbey were really right. If they had stayed in tbe union tbey would surely prevail In tbe end. Thus secession or factional Ism not only tends to render the union weak, but to deprive It of the benefits of suggestions of reform, some of which might be valuable and might finally be adopted. And labor needs unity now more tban ever before, in spite of tbe progress tbat has been made, because our oppo nents are becoming better organized and because the pay envelope is not keeping pace with tbe increasing cost of living. The old saying that "there is a time for everything" does not apply to splits In the forces of labor, because there Is no time appropriate for labor to split. Bear and forbear In tbe discussion of your differences, but preserve unity. Say to yourself, to nonunlonists and to independent factlonlsts. tbat labor has no time to spend In factional dis cussion except to unite tbe factions that have already been created, and that the time to unite la now.

Madison, la., July . 2S.-Before! the expiration Of another day John Junkln, the negro who on the night of February 5, 1009. - brutally murdered and then robbed Miss Clara Rosen, a handsome choir singer at Ottumwa, in this state will have expiated bis. crime upon the gallows. The scaffold re cently erected at the penitentiary Is waiting for the doomed man and the preparations for the execution which have kept Sheriff John G. Clark of Appanoose county busy for many days are completed In every detail. With the approach of the. time for his execution the condemned murderer has become extremely nervous and the prison guards who have kept the death watch over the prisoner for sev eral weeks have doubled their vigi lance, fearing tbat Junkin, almost in sane from fright over the approaching ordeal, would attempt to commit sui cide at the last moment, rather than undergo tbe legal penalty upon the scaffold. The attitude of the negro murderer has undergone a remarkable change since the time when he was first taken to the penitentiary to protect him from being lynched. After his . fear of the lynchers had worn off Junkin displayed a bravado which thoroughly disgusted the prison officials. He seem ed to feel great satisfaction over bis importance and notoriety and dfd not even lose his assurance when he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. But, as the time for his ex ecution approached, his dread of the terrible ordeal made him a craven, sul- ten and whining as his moods change!. Junkin out of the city and bringing him by. special train to Fort Madison, where be was kept safe at the peni tentiary. The execution of Junkin tomorrow will be the second legal hanging of a negro in this state in twenty-five years. The last negro who paid the death penalty upon the scaffold in the Btate was Joe Smith', a negro from Buxton, who was hanged on April 20, 10CC, for the murder of his sweet heart.

I After the execution the body of Junkin will be turned over to Profe3-, sor H. J. Hoeve, the criminologist, who wishes to make a careful examination ' of the brain and other organs of the criminal. Junkin sold his body to Dr. Hoeve for $5, the money to go to his Tastteffl Petite Never for a moment did he give the j old mother who spent her last dollar slightest evidence of remorse for bis brutal crime or of sympathy for the victim and her family. The crime for which Junkin will pay the legal penalty on the gallows tomorrow was one of the most heinous in ' the criminal annals of this state. The young and handsome victim, Miss Clara Rosen, was returning, from choir practice oh the night of February 5, of last year when she was waylaid by Junkin' in a deserted locality. The ne gro choked the girl to prevent her crying for help, beat her brains out iwith a rock and then robbed her. of her ear rings and finger rings. He was caught a short time after the mur der when he tried to pawn the rings. The unusual brutality of the crime bad aroused the most intense feeling among tbe citizens of Ottumwa and when it became known that the slayer of the girl had been apprehended, tbe citizens gathered with the Intention of lynching tbe murderer.

After carefully Investigating the cases of 6,000 children working tinder permits from tbe state factory Inspec tor In Wisconsin, J. D. Beck, labor commissioner of tbe state, has issued a .bulletin in which be makes recom mendations to the governor. Chief among these recommendations are the following: More vigorous and thorough enforce ment of tbe truancy law. Extension of industrial education. A. maximum working day of eight hours for children. Requirement of a minimum amount of school attendance before children are allowed permits to work. State agents and officers should be allowed broader discretion in refusing working permits for children. Employers should be held more strict ly responsible for the physical and mor al environment of children who are em ployed by them. Tentative bills along the foregoing lines are now in process of preparation at tbe bands of persons and societies interested in tbe "saving of the cbil tjren."
