Worthlngton, representa tive of the International Brother hood of Electrical Workers, was a \isitor at the meeting of the cen tral labor union last night 4nd ad dressed the local electrical work en and the Washington Water Power company, j Mr. Worthington went into a de tailed account of the disagreement and explained that the fight had now become one for the right of the workingmen in the employ of the company to organise for mu tual protection and benefit and made it clear to everyone present that unless the union won out in this contest that the fuure of he electrical workers in the employ of the company would be similar to that of the street car employes, who are compelled to work 13 hours per day for small wages. He said I this fight was not only a contest' between his union and the com-' pany, but was directed against every union In this city. Mr. Worthington's remarks were re ceived with applause, and genuine regret was expressed when he in formed tho meeting thai he would have to leave the City in a few days on account of pressing busi ness elsewhere, STREET CAR LINES ON UNFAIR LIST The central labor union placed the Union Park and Corbln Park lines of the Washington Water Power company upon the unfair list Bh-h-h! A smell of frying chick en, emulating from the kitchen of Mrs. McNab (colored) on Perry street filled the nostrils of Mrs. D. Montgomery (also colored) and caused them to dilate. Thia was not all, for it caused her to count iher chicks. Sure 'nough, one was j missing. According to her deductions, there was only one way about it — Mrs. McNab's dog has throttled one of her chickens and the McNab household was feasting at her ex pense. Tho rest of the fracas was told in police court, where each of the dusky women were fined $1 and MR. AUSTIN CRONIN LABORS' fi THE CITY'S i : TROUBLE SHOP: last night and all union men w r ho patronize those lines when they can just as easily take the Traction lines will be disciplined by their unions. The central union did not stop with the two lines of the company that are paralleled by the Traction company, but also placed Natator ium Park along with the linos of the company on the unfair list. It is the intention of the unions to picket these lines and the park, and as all the local unions have stringent laws it is expected that the action of the central body wilt have the effect of keeping away considerable patronage which the company has enjoyed in the past. It is also the intention of the union men of the city to place every lino owned by the Washing ton Water Power company that is paralleled in the future by the Traction company, on the unfair list, and they say they will con tinue the fight against the company indefinitely. CEMENT WORKERS GREIVANCE The grievance of the cement workers union against the unions which were out on strike against, the Barber Asphalt company was presented to the central union last night and referred to the organiza tion committee. The cement work ers claim that in the settlement of the trouble they were not consid ered. The other unions claim neg lect on the part of the cement workers in not being represented at the meeting when a settlement was made. costs by Judge Hinkle, Mrs. Mont gomery loosed a chicken In her j yard and she told the court "dat flea scratchin' dawg he jes' lights out foh man chicken and makes th moa' excruciatlnost effo't to lay his teef Into et—and, yoh 'onoh. Dat am de truf." The n Mrs. McNab got into the game and the atmosphere was blue with threats hurled back and forth between the two Afro-Americans.

V., who cele brated his 100 th birthday last August, works daily on the streets as an em ployee of the city and is a familiar figure in one of the busiest districts. * fir. Cronin, who has not missed a day's work in nine years, attributes his splen did physical condition and longevity solely to Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, which he has used since 1888.

My work is such as demands strength and activity, qualities which I believe I have acquired by my regular use of Duffy's. A glass of Duffy's Malt Whiskey always cures me of sny apparent illness, and is the only medicine I have any need for." REALM ARE TO BLUFF THE TURK.

DID NOT CONSULT GUY AUTHORITIES The Northern Pacific officials while in the city yesterday did not consult the city authorities in regard to the grade separation problem which has been agitating the citizens for the past year. Months ago the Northern Pacific officials stated that as soon as they had definitely decuieu upon a grade from the west city limits they would be ready to take up the grade crossings on the down town streets. The last proposition the railroad engineers made was to sink the streets from Monroe east to Wash ington four to six feet and to raise their tracks so that there would be a 20 foot viaduct. Tho railroad has announced that it has ordered ma terial and will start work in a short time toward building viaducts and opening Erie, Helena, Madelia and Napa streets in the school sec tion. FILTRATION NECESSARY The danger to the public health of Spokane from the towns on the Spokane river between the water works and the lake was called to the attention of the city council last year.

Genoway. city health officer, today. "The plant could be installed now at about one-fourth of what it wouio cost after the reservoir is filled." The board of health returns show that typhoid fever is decreasing in the city.
