That means workmen thrown out of work. Don't we need any moie buildings in this big country of ours? Lots of them. Then our purchasing power has been sadly reduced or some body has juggled with the prices. Thou sands of people want our lumber but they can't afford to buy it. Mother Nature lias given us a wealth of timber but we can't afford to cut it. And we think we have reached the acme of civil ization. If your Nat comes from the Boston Clothing Co. it has the Union Label. The waitresses work no lunger hours nor is their work more arduous than that of the female clerks. But their wages are much higher. Why? They are or ganized. "DR JACOB. SMITH, Specialist, Dis eases of men, Toggery Bldg, 1806% Hewitt." The Morning Tribune says: "They (women clerks) are not sufficiently or ganized to be able to make a stand against a reduction of pay.'' When will you tumble to the fact, girls, that or ganized labor is a potent force in any community and that it wants to help you better your conditions. But first you must show some desire to help your selves by joining your organization. A complete local federation of metal trades and railroad shop organizations is under way. No single thing is missed more through our municipal "contraction of the cur rency" than the free employment bureau. Now that the money so generously do nated to the city is available, partly at least, it is to be hoped that the bureau will he promptly re-established.

Any move ment to provide public playgrounds in this city should meet with the hearty approval and support of all good citl Kens, Playgrounds will help to turn our boys into community assets.

On several occasions it has been re ported that a lamp trimmer for the local light company was wearing a monthly button of the electricians as well as the emblem of the O. It. T. Whether he didn't know any better or whether he sought to convey the impression the strike was a thing of the past, we don't pretend to say. Just this: The elec tricians have not let up in their fight against the light company nor do they intend to. When the light company comes to time it will be made public by the men interested in this strike and not by an employe faking membership in the electrical workers' union.

Provisions of tho Law Enacted In New Jersey. In (he course of v lecture on "New Liability Laws" in New York city Edgar M. Atkln declared that sue h laws were antiquated and unjust In every state of tbe Union except one. Then he snid: II Is possible that the solution of the difficulty may be found In the sen ate act of the state New Jersey which recently became a law. Tills law Is in three sections. The first part of the law states that the employee enn rex-over compensation for Injuries un less he was guilty of willful negligence nnd definitely abolishes the defenses that the accident was caused by a fel- Special for Monday 100 dozen Turkish Bath Towels for, each 15c GROCERY SPECIALS Arm and Hammer Soda 5« Large bottle Malt Vinegar 5C 21bs.

The demand for recognition is one which a union cannot com promise if It is to be anything more than a society for the .ex change of individual commisera tion.
