LOCAL MOTES — ~« — 1 The printers have changed their meeting time to tho last Monday in each month instead of the last Sunday, the change to be effective until next fall. The new officers were installed at the meet ing Monday afternoon. The firemen did splendid work on the Barron building Tuesday evening. The smoke and flames that rolled out of the upper windows gave every indica tion of a fierce fire but was gotten under control in quick time. Every available lineman was sent to Snohomish Tuesday by the two tele phone companies as a result of the dis astrous fire that swept the business section. We lead, other follows. American Dye Works.

Kangley Clothing Co. arc carrying a full line of union made neckties. Some one has made a statement that the un ion labels on these neckties arc spurious. The labels are absolutely genuine and any one circulating a report that they are not is doing Mr. Kangley an in justice and incidentally hurting the cause of the union label.

Don't lose sight of the fact that simply because one's name does not ap pear upon the tax rolls does not consti tute a reason that that person pays no takes. You may not own a foot of ground nor have |>ersonal posses sions enough to be counted but never theless you help to foot the bills. The merchant who raises bit by bit upon his articles of trade to reimburse him self for what he considers excessive taxation, the hotel owner who raises the terms of his lease, the owner of prop erty who raises his rentals, has in mind the amount of taxes he paid and he takes it out of you and your neighbor, no matter who you are or what you do.

In the days of the licensed saloon in Kverett such an exhibition of drunken debauchery among boys scarcely out of their teens was never seen as now cha racterises the Saturday night reveals of late months. The open saloon in Ev erett never put half the boys and young men in the alcoholic tears that the pres ent conditions are doing. It is not claim edthat they are getting their booze in Everett but Everett homes are getting the effects of it just the sAme.

It is reported that a store at Pinehitrst cut out the brand recently and several stands in the city have discontinued its use.

We've all got the habit of taking a fall out of the corporations and when all is said and they sure do deserve a lot of the unkind things said about them. But in our anxiety to take a slam at them we forget some things that could occasionally be said in their favor. They're here, you know, and going to remain until We succeed in tipping over the old profit system, and that is hound to take sonic time yet. Here is one bouquet we are glad to throw at the Everett Gas Co. That company has dis charged every Greek laborer employed on their work in Everett and will use only white labor as long as it can be obtained. The Gas Co. is doing an ex tensive amount of work this summer and consequently furnishes employment to a goodly number of laborers. Money distributed in wages among workmen pay grocery bills and board bill rather than buying foreign money orders and bank drafts is sure appreciated. > RETAIL CLERKS » THE RETAIL CLERKS UNION » WILL HOLD AN OPEN MEET ) ING AT THE LABOR TEMPLE, » WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, AT 8 ) P.

MEN ARE THE REAL TEST. Our Country Strong on Government, but Fears to Enact Laws For Work ers—lnterests Get Legal Aid. but Psternslism Forbids Help For Toilers. It has been said by an American writer who tins made a careful study of the Institutions of his country. Bay* the Los Angeles Citizen, that "the test of a nation's value Is the kind of men it produces" and that "the first busi ness of n nation is tbe manufacture of souls of a good quality." Franklin I'ieree says. "No people in history ever relied so implicitly on the making of laws, the creation of con stitutions and the protection of life nnd property through courts as the Amerl can people." As n people we are strong on govern ment. Of the making and application -and, it may be suld, misapplication of lows there is no end. But bow lit tie of government is actually devoted to the real living interests of the peo pie! The Instant a demand Is made for government provision for the worker in tbe way of employment for tbe masses of unemployed or protection for those employed in hazardous in dustries tbat Instant tbe cry goes up against paternalism. Railroad magnates ask for rights of way and franchises. Manufacturers request subsidies and legislative pro tection Indeed, the fortunes of the "captains of industry" have drawn most of their growth out of privilege and protection. But wheu the laborer nsks tbe government to provide jobs for him uud his kind be is looked upon as a mendic.-uit. begging for that to which ho Is not entitled. The constitution of tbe United States does not afllrm any one's right to a fortune, but It does affirm that a man has a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. How can the laborer live and support those whose lives are under bis care without work? Liberty! How can a man be free unless there is an opportunity to exchange labor for tho necessities of life? Pursuit of happiness! How can one be happy unless there Is employment of a kind to enable him to keep bis family on a decent plane of existence? If a man becomes Insane the govern ment supports bim. If be commits n crime it furnishes him a Job. food, clothes and shelter. Unemployment Is the cause of much insanity and crime Wouldn't it be cheaper and wiser for tbe government to furnish employ ment? If there is danger In government help, let the government cease helping those who do not need It, for that's where the danger lies. It's always safe and wise to help those who need it. Hours of Labor In Holland. During a speech nt a recent public meeting tn Amsterdam a member of tbe states general announced tbat there would be Introduced In the sec ond chamber a bill prescribing a maxi mum of ten hours as a day's labor for worklngmeu and tbat tbe bill would provide for an eight hour working day eight years after this measure became effective. It Is also contemplated to prohibit the employment of cblldreu under thirteen years of age or still sub ject to compulsory education in any work whatever. Tbe proposed measure is designed to repeal the present law as to hours of labor. This law places no limitation on the working hours of males over sixteen years of age. but provides tbat males under sixteen and females shall not be engaged more than eleven hours a day In factories and workshops and that their labor shall not begin before 5 o'clock n. m. nor continue beyond 7 p. m., though various exceptions are allowed by tbe law. A child under twelve years of age is forbidden to do any work. The Union Mult Pay. The unlawful strike tn the granite quarries of Wells Bros, of Hopkinton, Mass, which cost the foremnn. Ma rlauo de Mlnico. his Job will cost tbe Milford branch of the (iranlte Cutters' International association $707 by or der of Judge Morton tn tbe supreme court at Boston following a full bench decision that tbe strike was unjustltia ble. Tbe order was directed to David Craig, president und secretary of the .Milford union, and tbe adjustment committee, who were ordered to pay De Mlnico $500 In damages and $207 costs. TEST IN WHAT YOU BUY. Unionism and tbe union label go band In hand. One Is tbe same as tbe other. You canuot claim to believe In tbe former If you leave out of consideration the latter. Deeds speak louder than words. Nearly all articles of appurei and very many com modtties can be purchased with the sign of good, sanitary work manship attached. If you buy the other kind your unionism tsu't even skin deep. — Labor Clarion. Nsw York's Labor Army.

GOMPERS' JAIL SENTENCE. Wall Street Anxious Over the Fate of Labor Leaders. According to a Wall street authori ty, there is much concern In the street as to the final outcome of tbe Oom pers, Mitchell and Morrison jail sen tences now on tbe calendar of tbe federal supreme court This authority says: "Wltb more men Idle, tbe financial community Is wondering in what man ner organized labor will accept a de cision from tbe supreme court of tbe United States, in regard to the sen tence of Gompers, Mitchell and Mor rison to imprisonment on the charge of contempt of court. This case is considered by many lawyers as really more important than tbat of the Standard Oil or the American Tobac co company, because it strikes at tbe very foundation of organized labor, and tbe decision will set a limit be yond which labor fights cannot go with safety in tbe future. "If tbe supreme court should force Gompers and the others to serve out their sentences and if organized labor should decide to treat tbem as mar tyrs a very delicate situation would be created. On the other hand, if tbe supreme court should decide that tbe sentences were unjustly imposed it would create a condition equally deli cate by encouraging organized labor to disregard lower court decisions ex cept in a technical sense. "Either horn of tbe dilemma is un fortunute. because there are so many people idle Just now with plenty of time to get excited over matters tbat would pass with comparatively little notice if prosperity were ut full tide." —Brooklyn Eagle.

One ot the lawyer! employed to de fomi the accused ironworkers nui In Los Angeles shows the ddlcucj ot his sensibilities by refusing Iv Dave uuy thing to do with McMunigal "I will hiincllp no Informer's matters for htm." this lawyer Is quoted us siiytng '•The other attorneys can do what they will." This lawyer does not explain whether his horror of McManlgal Is bused on the conviction tbat the In former Is lying or on the general prln clple thnt nn effort to save one's guilty self from deserved punishment by the betrayal of one's associates in crime is the culmination of buman baseness Apparently be Ignores the possibility thnt the informer may ■bo what Or chard claimed to be—n man who has repented of bis evil deeds and lias de termined, regardless of consequences to himself, to do what he can to serve society by telling the whole truth We do not understand that McMan igni makes any such claim or that anybody makes It In bis behalf, but that may come later And It cannot be denied, or at least shouldn't be, that the informer does sometimes have a theoretically adequate excuse for be trnylng his accomplices and does oc casionally perform real public serv ices There must bo some good rea son, however, for the instinctive detes tation of the informer which we all feel, even when be tells the truth—a feeling out of which we find it im possible to argue ourselves His net may be beneficial in the abstract, but his motive Is either obviously hideous or widely open to the suspicion of be ing so. and be can never prove it high or disinterested, even when the chance that it may be so exists. The fact is that the world bas decid ed that it could get along well enough without tbe assistance of informers, and it makes use of them with reluc tance and nausea. Even honest detec tives suffer in reputation and esteem because of tbe betraying of confidence tbey bave to do in tbe course of their business, and that in spite of the unanimous admissiou of moralists that good faith need not be observed to ward public enemies when It endan gers public safety. As for McManigal, it is only fair to assume that tbe suddenly changed at titude of union labor toward him is due to a belief tbat be Is lying, not to tbe fear tbat be la telling the truth.— New York Times.
