proceedings on the floor of the
convention were interrupsd by
the electioneering.
Charges and counter charges
were hurled back and forth by
both sides. Early in the cam
paign reports Were published
that certain anti-Gompers inter
ests were oparating among the
delegates with $100,000 "slush
fund." Efforts to bring about
an investigation of these charges
failed. At no time, however,
did these charges involve the
" Lewis supporters, as they were
all made against persons outside

To Reinstate a Union
Before adjournment the con
vention disposed of several jur
isdictional matters. The pro
posal to reinstate the United
Brotherhood of Maintenance of
Way Employes and Railway Shop
Laborers, which was suspended
in December. 1919. because of
jurisdictional dispute, was re
ferred to the executive council.
The. council was instructed to
take necessary steps to assure
the reinstatement of this organi
zation with its membership of
nearly 200,000. No opposition
was voiced on tha convention
floor against the proposal.
Heated Words Exchanged
Heated words were exchanged
by President P. J. Morrin, of the
Bridge and Structural Iron work
ers and President Daniel J. Tob
in, of the Teamsters over a jur
isdictional dispute involving
these two union?.
The iron workers contended
that in certain cases the unload
ing of structural iron from wa
gons and truck was the work of
iron workers. Tobin took ex
ception to this. The convention
settled it by referring it to a
conference at Indianapolis with
provison for referring it to-three
members of the executive coun
cil if the conference should fail.

Warning Hera to Those' Who Neglect
to Set Down Their Priceless
A noted author In the Satevpost
writes: "The commonest sign of fa
tigue Is found in feeling of weari
ness." There are times when we are almost
led Into believing that this is true.
Equivocal and ambiguous as the state
ment may seem, at the first reading.
It becomes clearer when read over
four or five times. In fact, we don't
know when the proposition has been
stated with more clarity, after one
masters the language In which It is
Have you not often read things and
said to yourself: "How often I have
thought that very thing. Why did I
not put It down in imperishable
It Is so with this. Doubtless, In
your bumble way you have often
thought that your weariness was a
sign of fatigue. At those times you
thought a living truth, but did you
write and tell some magazine of your
priceless discovery? No. You al
lowed somebody to come along, per
haps years after, and do It
The moral is that when you thlnli a
great thought, put It down on paper
t once. Even If you do put It away
somewhere and forget it, posterity
may find It.
" Now, many times in our career we
have had feelings of weariness. Some
of our friends have been misguided
enough to attribute it to laziness an
awful word, particularly among
friends. Eut, when we were weary, it
was not laziness that ailed us. It
was fatigue.
And we never knew the truth until
we read the' magazine article men
tioned. We have been slandered for
years by a wrong Idea. Exchange.
Face of Ten-Year-Old Has Appeared
on Millions of Coins of the
United States.
The government of the United States
In 1S30 made an offer of $1,000 for the
most acceptable design to be placed
upon the new cent coin soon to be
issued. Some Indian chiefs traveled
from the northwest to Washington to
visit the Great Father and then
Journeyed to Philadelphia to see the
mint, whose chief engraver was James
Carton Longacre, who invited them to
his home.
The engraver's daughter, Sarah,
aged 10, greatly enjoyed the visit f
her father's guests and during the eve
ning, to please her, one of the chiefs
took off his feathered helmet and wr
bonnet and placed it on her head. In
the company was an artist, who im
mediately sketched her and handed the
picture to her father. Mr. Longacre,
knowing of the competition for a like
ness to go upon the cent projected,
under the inspiration of the hour, re
solved to contend for the prize offered
by the government. To his delight the
officials accepted it, and the face 'of
his daughter appeared upon the coin,
which was circulated about the nation
for nearly a century. There were
more than a hundred competitions.
The cent bearing the face of Sarah
Longacre has gone Into more hands
than any other American coin.
How England Grows.
A great deal of Interest Is taken
In England In the question of coast
protection. The ocean, assailing the
cliffs, gradually tears them away, but
this very process furnishes a defense
for the land by building up long
beaches of sand and shingle which ar
rest the waves before they can attack
the cliffs. An effort Is making to pre
vent, or better regulate, the removal of
this material for construction and road
building, because In many places its
removal has permitted the sea free
ly to exert its power of erosion.
The ordnance survey has ascertained
that in the last half century England
has lost 6,640 acres by sea erosion
and gained 48,000 acres through re
claiming land the existence of which
is mainly due to material brought
down by the rivers.
Growth of the Cities.
A Cleveland editor once salcf that
Cincinnati's chief busiuess was "pork
and politics," observes Girard in the
Philadelphia Press.
You have been told In .advertise
ments a million times that a certain
beer "made Milwaukee famous."
Everybody knows that Washington.
D. C. has one big Industry holding
down government jobs.
The new census figures from these
cities, all above 400,000, are signifi
cant. Pork population increased only 10
per cent in a decade, while beer popu
lation expanded 22 per cent. Both
look small compared with the growth
In government job population of 32
per cent.
Two Vials.
"A feller 'way down there on Fid
dle Creek found a bottle floating in the
water tuther day," related an acquaint
ance. "In It was a note from a lady,
saying she was being held for ransom
by a band of brigadiers, or whatever
you call 'em."
"Humph," replied Heck Tarpy of
Straddle Ridge. "Tobe Swoiler found
a bottle in the road, whur it had prob
'ly struggled loose from some feller,
and it was half full of bone-dry lick
er that made Tobe holler that he vaa
so tough he could climb a honey locust
tree backwards with a wildcat under
each arm and never get a scratch."
