ROYAL BAKINO POWDER CO., NEW YORK.
That there has recently been n great
change among business men regarding
labor organizations Is undeniable. In the
past it has been claimed that labor un
l<ns wort* tyrannical, that they had, in
fact, no right to exist. Retail merchants
and manufacturers «vere full of alleged
arguments to show why laboring classes
Bhould not organise lor their own pro
tectlon. The claim was advanced by
some of the opponents of organized labor
that if the workingmen believed they
were wronged they should have recourse
to the ballot, that they should, In fact,
icdress their wrongs, if any existed,
which was very much doubted, by vot
ing- for one or the other of the old parties.
The idea was laughed to scorn by cer
tain business men that because capital
had combined and was crushing the life
out of labor, a sufficient excube existed
lor trades unions. Now there Is a change,
and a rapidly growing change of senti
ment, especially among the merchants
and others who handle the output of gi
gantic trusts. Those who formerly de
nounced organised labor in no unmeas
ured terms, now see that only by organi
zation—close, stern, disciplined organiza
tion—can the working man protect him-
Eelf from the audi-.cious encroachment of
combined capital invested in capital
stocks running ;;11 the way from J10.000,
--000 to $$.0,000,000. The new bicycle trust is
an example of the maximum capital of
such combinations. No one can logically
apologize for the trust an-3 at the samo
time deny tho right of labor to combine
ita forces. Possibly this growing len
iency and friendliness exhibited today In
the attitude of the average business man
toward organized labor can be accounted
for by the unblushing effrontery of trusts
organized under the New Jersey corpora
tion laws. At least the rapid Increase
of membership in the various unions
throughout the country would seem to
warrant such a conclusion.
Barbers' Sunday Closing; I.aw.
The barbers' Sunday closing law has
been tested in Tennessee, having been
taken to the supreme court. Judge Mc-
Allister, in affirming the decision of the
lower court, said:
It is insisted by counsel that a statute
applicable to barbers alone is not the
law of the land, but class legislation.
There is another statute which is general
in its application and prohibits any mer
chant, artificer, tradesman, farmer or
other person from carrying on business
on Sunday under penalty of $3, to be
recovered before a justice of the peace.
It Is a part of the history of this legis
lation that it was enacted at the urgent
solicitation of the barbers themselves,
acting individually and collectively
through their organized associations. A
day of rest was needed for this most
industrious and overworked trade, and
it whs admitted that without the im
position of a heavier penalty it could not
be secured, for no one was willing to
close up his shop unless all were made
to do so. The fact that the legislature did
not include other occupations in this par
ticular statute and the reason for not do
inp so are things which could not be in
quired into by the courts. Of the policy
or expediency of the law the legislature
is the sole arbiter, and the law is valid,
although a certain class—the barbers
have been selected upon whom It shall

The resolution presented by the local
Trades and Labor assembly to the St.
Paul city council, through Aid. Bantz,
has, with some modifications, passed both
branches of the council. The Trades and
Labor assembly asked that all stone for
city purposes be cut by union labor. The
resolution, as passed, provides .that all
city work be done by union labor so far
as is practicable. This applies to all
trades, and is, apparently, more than was
requested by the assembly. Until anoth
er meeting of this body is had no expres
sion of the feelings of the unions can be
had, as all parties are reticent until more
is known of the significance of the added
clause, "as far as is practicable."

of such purchase, the bank is stopped

Justice Shlras and the opinion of the cir

M. J. Howe and T. Carroll, whom Of

charged with riding bicycles without

also charged them with being drunk,
write to the Globe: ■.
"We take the liberty-of addressing you
In the hope that you will rectify the er
roneous statemen in today's paper to thß
effect that Mr. Carroll and Mr. Howe
were arrested for being drunk and riding
bicycles without lanterns. It Is true that
we were without lanterns, but neither
one of us was in the slightest degree un
der the influence of liquor, as can be
proven by numerous parties-whom we
were with, some of whom left us before
we were arrested. Mr. Carroll, Mr. Howe
and several others were returning from
a run in the country when one of the
party broke his wheel, which delayed us
come time in repairing. I W* had,gone
but a short distance after the accident
when Mr. Howe met with another in the
shape of a broken pedal. When we got
to the corner of Wabasha and Seventh
streets Mr. Howe's wheel ran in the
groove of the street car track, and in
consequence of his having but one pedal
to work with he had a fall. We were
arrested for being vrithout lanterns, and
that was the only charge brought against
us. What reason the police had for say-
Ing we were drunk will ever remain a
mystery, and we sincerely trust that you
will right the wrong already done by rec
tifying through the columns of your
valued paper this false statement."

i SCHOOL BOARD TALKS OF GIVING
• .BOMB TEACHERS THEIR V
■f OLD SCHOOLS
M'GILL ASH SANBOBN BUSY |
They Do Not Want Any Change In
- * the Central High PrincipaUhlp—
Rumor That Prof. Bryant' May
Return to the Humboldt, Pro/.
Baker to the Jiflenon, Prof.
Welch to the Central Stall. -
There is a lot of wirepulling going on,
according to report, in connection with
the make-up of next year's staff at the
Central high school. Aid. Sanborn and
ex-Gov. McOlU are among the stanchent
of Principal Bryant's friends, and they
have been wrestling with members of the
board of school inspectors with the hope
of Influencing any action looking to a
change in the prlndpalshlp of the school.
"The board Is to hold a meeting soon,
but it will not be executive," says Presi
dent Zimmerman. He always laughs when
he says this. For when the board does
meet, which will probably be this week,
it will be to caucus upon the situation,
and it will be in the library of one of the
members. And after the attache of a
morning paper has been once more en-
Joined to secrecy the board will meet in
regular session June 7, and pass upon air
matters as routine.
The situation at the Central high school
is not the only annoying one. There are
other problems for the board to solve.
At the Jefferson school everything has
not run with ball-bearing smoothness,
and a change may be necessary there. In
fact if Principal Bryant will consent to
go back to the Humboldt, Prof. Baker
will be sent over to the Jefferson school.
The patrons of the Jefferson school would
welcome back Prof. Baker, who has been
a prominent figure among them for a
generation. Prof. Welch will be given his
old position in the Central high school, if
the foregoing becomes a fact. It is said
that Mr. Welch is a better teacher than
a principal. This has been frequently as
serted since he took charge of the Jeffer
son, and the change to his old position
would not be unwelcome to him, it is said.
Prof. Baker has been quite successful
at the Humboldt high school, but all his
friends are on this side of the river, and
as the condition at the Jefferson might
be improved by a change, it is quite prob
