THE INDEPENDENTS. A Scrap of Conversation Overheard at a Factory. Shortly after 4 o'clock one afternoon two colored bodcarrlers while OB their way home stopped to gaze through a factory window into a polisliinu room They were union men and had worked eight hours that day ami earned $4. Their curiosity bad possibly been aroused by tbe peculiar odor or It may have been n desire to see skilled me chanics work They were soon able to discern through the dust tbe work ers In boring over tbe Swiftly revolving wheels. The following conversation tool, place: "Say, boss, ain't that thar work dun gerotis?" "Yes. Indeed; we have to know our business." "How long yo" have to do tbat ev ery day?" "We'll be through nt 0 o'clock: wo work ten hours." "Say. don't that dust make yo' feel poly sometimes?" "Yes, I guess n larger per cent of polishers die with consumption than 1 auy other trade " "Pshaw! What yo' nil get :i day?" "Oh. anywhere from $1.75 to $2.25 n day." M Fo* de Lawd's sake! Is dat nil? Don't yo' belong to a union?" "No, Indeed; we are independent workmen We don't believe In bavins; unions tell us What to do. Tbat little fellow over there belonged once, and he didn't like tbe wny things were run." ■lust Mien tbe foreman caught sight of the man Idle and ordered him to his lathe. The two colored men when leaving were heard to say: "Dem white men nm sho' dumb Even a colored man knows dat he Wouldn't get no chicken if it wn'nt fo' bis union. Independent wo*kmen, bub.'"—Car Worker. VALUE OF UNIONISM. Raymond Robins Testifies to the Worth of Labor Organization. In tbe course of an address delivered by Raymond Robins during the men nnd religion campaign In Dcs Moines great interest was aroused among members of tbe labor unions by some Clear CUI remarks delivered straight from the shoulder. "At the age of eighteen." said Mr Robins. "I was working In (he pit of a mine iv the south Near was a saloon It had light, warmth and a paper. I filled my stomach with beer once each week It was killing me. but I did not know It. A refugee from a Colorado mine Came to'our place He told me tbat there was an organised mine workers' union and that with Its card 1 could earn .*4 a day. I went to Colorado. I cleaned cuspidors iv the labor ball tbat I might get a card With a card I was nlile to earn $4 a day. 1 bad lei sure; I bad books; I bad an opportuni ty to become a man and take a man's place in the world. That is what or ganized trade has done for me." As so many misleading statements have been published concerning the men and religion movement, the union members who listened to Mr Robins were greatly surprised nt what he said After the meeting large numbers sur rounded him, shaking his hand warm ly and showing that tbey were mighty glad to find the men and religion move ment was with tbe workingmun as a whole instead of being against him Mr. Rubins is one of the strongest speakers In tbe official battalion of ex pert workers who are carrying tbe men and religion forward movement through the country. Union Labor Revival. Minneapolis labor organizations are planning a great union labor revival next March.

The labor movement of today Is the legitimate heir of the struggle of ages against wrong, against injury, against tyranny and for justice, right nnd free dom. Organized labor Is the best expression of discontent nnd the best machinery with which to make that expression felt with the largest amount of permanent good aud tbe least Injury to any one. You cannot make an omelet without break ing some eggs. No move can bring great benefit to tbe masses without bringing some injury to the few. In everything except labor none questions the right of the man who has something to sell to set the price. Tbe working man has his labor to sell, nnd the union would enable blin to set the price on bis labor. Tbe employer wants to set the price, and we are urged to exercise the grace of submission and trust to the hope nnd assurance of a re ward in the sweet by nnd by. We nre not going to surrender any of our hope of reward lv the sweet by and by, but we want to get used to a good time here and now.—Samuel Gom pers. NEW LIABILITY LAW.
