PRACTICAL WORK PLANNED Will Work With Chamber of Com merce.—Union Labor Gains Many Concessions. —President Pulver Ad vocates Exclusion of Japanese La borers. Denver. —The Denver Trades and Labor Assembly took action in two matters Sunday that will place 'it ;imoDg Colorado boosters. President- Prank J. Pulver, in his semi-annual ad dress, spoke against the strike ao rapidly becoming an obsolete method bettering the condition of the work ing man. Arbitration, affiliation and compromise were advocated by the president of the assembly. The as sembly showed that it is in accord with tjie principles set forth by Mr. Pulver by approving his report and voting that the assembly apply for membership in the Chamber of Com merce. President Spengel of the cham ber has said that such an application will be promptly granted, and the re sult is expected to do more for the ad vancement of the cause of organized labor than dozens of strikes. The business men have expressed a desire to get in touch with those they employ and th« assembly has met them half way. The other movement taken up by the assembly is the investigation of all county institutions, including the county hospital, jail, detention home, city institutions and the state indus trial school. These investigations are to be made, not in a spirit of suspicion of misman agement. but for the purpose of ac complishing good. When something good about the institutions is found, it will be praised. When something wrong is discovered, the assembly will use its influence to correct the error. In talking of the strike, President Pulver said that laboring men were coming to regard it as a last resort, and that much more can be accom plished by peaceable means. Better conditions are in view for union labor in Denver, especially, he said, as the Board of Public Works has voted an increase in wages to laborers and teams. The wages of Janitors have been raised SIS a month at the City Hall In addition, the Board of Pub lie Works has caused to be inserted in all city contracts the express stipu lation that eight hours shall constitute a day’s work for all laborers employed by city contractors. The committee appointed to investi gate the accusations against the poor farm reported that the charges in rela tion to the bedding and diet for pul monary patients are true. Other charges are said to be untrue. The county commissioner agreed, the com mittee reported, to make the changes recommended by the committee. President Pulver also took up the .Tapanese-Chlnese exclusion question in his report. Many interest ing facts were presented by him for the consideration ol the assembly. The Japanese, he said, can live on less than any race on earth. Even the Chinese cannot compete with them. He quoted figures to show that the highest classes of Jap anese labor receive no more than 25 to 50 cents a day. Most of the unskilled labor receive 10 or 15 cents a day. The wages of each class of labor were quoted. Mr. Pulver wants a Japanese Korean exclusion act and urged the nssembly to do all in its power to ex elude the Japanese. Forty million people live in an area but little larger than the state of Colorado, less than 13.000 square miles being suitable for agricultural purposes. The rest, ho declared is mountain country. Tho Japanese, according to his report, hav« reduced living to the finest science of any race, under these conditions. SLAVERY REVIVED. Negro Sold in Mississippi to Pay .1 Debt. Washington.

THE FIRST TWINGE Of Rheumatism Calls for Dr. Pink Pills If You Would Be Easily Cured. Mr. Frank Little, a well known citi zen of Portland. lonia Co., Mich., was cured of a severe case of rheumatism by Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills. In speak ing about it recently, he said: “My body was run down and in no condi lion to withstand disease and about five years ago I began to feel rheu matic pains in my arms and across my back. My arms and legs grew numb and the rheumatism seemed to settle in every joint so that 1 could hardly move, while my arms were useless at times. I was unable to sleep or rest well and my heart pain ed me so terribly I could hardly stand It. My stomach became sour and bloated after eating and this grew so bad that 1 had inflammation ot the stomach. I was extremely nerv ous aud could not bear the least noise or excitement. One whole side of my body became paralyzed. “As I said before. I had been suff ering about five years and seemed to be able to get no relief from m/ doctors, when a friend here in Port land told me how Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had cured him of neuralgia in the face, even after the pain had drawn it to one side. I decided to try the pills and began to see some improvement soon after using them. This encouraged me to keep on until I was entirely cured. I have never had a return of the rheumatism or of the paralysis. The pills are for sale by all drug gists or sent, postpaid, on receipt of price. 50 cents per box. six boxes $2.50, by the Dr. Williams M edict na Company, Schenectady, N. Y.
