I Officers Will Servo For Another Year 11 LOUISVILLE DELEGATES ARE HOMEI Flushed with victory and in the best of spirits Delegates WalterYoung and James McGill have returned from Detroit where they represeried the Central Labor Union and Federal Labor Union at the conven tion of the American Federation of Labor the greatest gathering of representatives of American trades unionists ever assembled in the United States bringing with them the next convention to Louisville Messrs McGill Young and Charles Peetz left two weeks ago and labored for Louisville night and day till the time for the balloting to begin Wednesday when they had the pleasure of winning easily over Scranton Cleveland Columbus Salt Lake City Galveston and Bay City Mich Their victory is the more remarkable from the fact that the Federation has not met in the East for a number of years and as Nashville Cincinnati Kansas City and Detroit have had the convention it was thought by many that an Eastern city possibly Syracuse which is a noted convention town might carry off the prize However the Louisville representatives were not to be dismayedand the delegates could not resist the tempta tion to come here after enjoying taste of the hospitality dispensed at the Ken tucky headquarters When Louisville was r placed in nomination the convention was brought to a standstill that the formal invitations and telegrams might be read They were from the Board of Trade Commercial Club Central Labor Union Mayor Weaver and Henry Wattersqu Cols John and James yballen President l iafoftlptfd 4typogrtphlioJpIQI I

highly appreciate the honor conferred upon them and there is no doubt but that the business public will aid in carry ing out the pledges made The Federation reelected all the old officers the only contests being for the selection of delegates to the British and Canadian Trades Congresses The fol lowing will serve during the year 1900 President Samuel Gompers of Wash ingtonVice Presidents P J

importance to Louisville trades unions and having a direct bearing upon the differences be tween the Central Labor Union and those who last year seceded therefrom to or ganize the United Trades and Labor As sembly was the protest entered against the admission of the delegates from the national bodies of the locals represented r therein The action of the Committee on Credentials was prompt and dicisive and was to the effect that no trades union national or local in any way directly or indirectly affiliated with the body with out a charter from the American Federa lion would be recognized or entitled to representation until such connection wasI severed to which the officers of the National Tobacco Workers Union and Theatrical Stage Employes Alliance agreed saying their locals in Louisville must withdraw from the anti Federation body or surrender their charter Those who have the true interests of the wage earners at heart believe this will tuing tan o end the senseless breach that baa ex fisted here during the year and when the contention meets next December ou trades unions will present a united front Before adjourning the convention made formal requests that all trades

been actively at work in past years and as a result of its systematic wise and united effort has accom pushed more effective and lasting benefits for the elevation protectioi and advancement of labor interest than their brelhen in most Western i States and their example is worthy f of emulation by Kentucky organizes labor There has not been any serious trouble except a few case i among the miners in Indiana for years and the false impression that organized labor in that State was demoralized and powerless has be come prevalent Results however prove to the contrary and as inci am ttentioni to the 4r fdition of llabor iu Indiana the resultsI are shown to be favorable causing r first surprise then admiration iit should go further and cause ta thoughtful investigation of the methods of procedure and an effor to secure like results by similar peaceful means in other States par r ticularly in Kentucky We believe the working people of Kentucky are more strongly organized than those of Indiana but when result of the efforts of each for betterment of their respective conditions and standing under the law are compared the Kentuckians must takeoff their hats to the Hoosiers We cite two matters which have r been the subjects of effort and legislation in both Statesthe regula payment of wages child education restriction of child labor Not irandwithstanding all that has been donE in years in Kentucky in session after session of the Legislature practically nothing has been accomplished The laws enacted were incomplete defective and the State officials can not be induced to in terest themselves sufficiently to make a test in the courts to advise or aid labor in any way to secure the desired cud We have laws regulating payment of wages requiring school attendance prohibit ing child laborthat is to an ex tentbut they are dead letters are notoriously vJolatedrand no effort made to enforce them It is only our knowledge that such laws have been enacted in Kentucky that enabled us to assert we have such laws in this State fully conscious that the real condition of affairs indi cates that in effect there are no such laws because they are npt enforced i and the abuses they should remedy are openly and generally prevalent la Indiana they too have such IUw but they are simple in lan paCe plain in their provisions and they are enforced The law requires payment of wages weekly By allremployers except why re thf majority of the employe agree othersHfiejit being conceded 1Win some instances weekly payment of wages would entail inconveni nee and expense but in all cas lar and prompt payment is insiste on the law being enforced by Stat attorneys on complaint of employes and now all employes receive thei wages regularly the vast majorit weekly many semimonthly and only a few corporations adhere tto monthly payments which will like ly be changed as soon as practicable The latest case under the law is the Republic Iron and Steel Company controlling five plants and employ ing 5000 The company objected to weekly payments because of the labor aud expense but agreed tQ semimonthly payments which their employes declined to accept The matter has been compromised by the company agreeing to twenty eight pay days per yearS arranged that rot more than one weeks pay will be held back this to be effect ive for the present working year to the fall of 1900 when approved by a majority of the employes as iiit likely will be During the controversy all employes continued at work and there has not been the least interruption or ill feeling Under the school or truant law as it is commonly called everyone of school age must attend school until they have attained at least ia common school edtcation and the child labor law prohibits the em ployment of children under sixteen years of age in factories foundries mines or at hard labor The rigid enforcement of these two laws has about abolished child labor in tbe State since children are being edu catedvand an educatedboy dfisix f v f V rO f1 teen 1s ambitious and capable of something more than the drudgery at which child labor is usually em ployed to the detriment of health and morals Child labor over six teen allowed by law is therefore a scarce article in Indiana An effort to evade the law by bringing boy from outside the State was defeated by a decision that when children come into Indiana they are subject to the law of the State Another effort by glass works to fill the boys places with women and girls though not prohibited bylaw was abandoned because of public protest against the employment of women and girls at labor unsuit ed them and injurious to their healthWhat a contrast to this we have in Kentucky Though we have laws confessedly defective on these subjects wages are paid at any old time children who ought to be at school grow up in ignorance and vice child labor is carried beyond slavery to the verge of barbarism it its disregard of every feeling of hu manity and female labor is allowed that is not only improper and de structive of health but in places and under circumstances and asso ciations that are destructive of de cency and morals as well Indiana organized labor has reme died these evils by thorough organization competent leadership and thoughtful action through its State Federation of Labor We can and should do likewise in Kentucky The move to form a State Federa tion is a step in the right direction It should meet with hearty appro val the best and most conservative men selected as representatives that it may be promptly organized harmoniously managed and effectively represented at Frankfort in bringing to the attention in proper shape labors wants and securing the needed legislation We are far behind Indiana and other States

the oldtime copy books Nevertheless it did not keep the young folks of our generation from being afflicted with a strong desire to lengthen the hours for slumber or teach them to love their pil lows less especially of mornings such as those we are having now How dis mally the bell sounds to the college student at five oclock in the morning or to the working boy or girl at six oclock And well it may sluggishness is a sign of health and vigor according to recent research Medical science to day declares that if the man is healthy he does not get up early through choice the desire torise with the lark II being the result ofII the hardening of the arteries and the less ready action of the vasomotor system It is a disease of old men and apparently of wornout nations China being quoted as a

who wore his vegetarian boots to Regent Park a few days ago and returned lipuie with what resembled a pair of sandals all his toes having taken ou inclination to see the sun will no doubt wear his leather boots henceforth when he chooses to take a pastoral stroll Having seated himself beneath a tree to rest he fell asleep He did not know how long his siesta lasted but when he awoke he found two

for which they were perfectly willing to forsake the ordinary grass which they had been accustomed to graze on It is foretold by scientists and inventors that coal will eventually cease to be king as it now is as the coming century ad vances By the harnessing of cataracts and rivers electricity will be evolved of suchstupendous power that light and heat will be supplied us without the use of the black monarch which seems today to rule us with an iron hand Thousands of tons of coal per day are being saved by the use of electricity In Michigan a big dam has just been completed that produces a

All over the world water power is being resorted to in order to furnish cities with the light and heat that formerly were given us by coal Cinders and grime will disappear and the labor of housekeeping will be reduced when the mighty force of electricity is well and satisfactorily understood Great things are promised during the coming years within the domain of electricity and magnetism But little is known compared to the vast regions that yet remain to be discovered andexplored Golf which is becoming such a favor ite pastime with Americans is said to be a great restorative in nervous diseases This can be readily understood Exercise aid air are tonics for almost any ail ment Insomnia easily disappears when nerves are strengthened and fed by fresh air and sunlight In the Northern and Eastern States golf amounts to a fad Down here in old Kentucky we go slower but well get there Some time Christmas has taken complete possession of the streets Such immense throngs of people hurrying from store to store have trot been seen In this city for many years past It seems that Christ mas always supposed to belong to the children has this year become the right of their elders Stores are jammed and thoroughfares blocked by women and men all seeming intent on making pur chases This would indicate that the hard times are beginning to be over Let us not forget those for whom they are not over and remember the afflicted ones who sit outside the doors wherein they may not enter and bring a little of the gladness which we possess into their dismal homes whence they

upon by ap prentices This bull will not only d away with the cheap barbers but will improve the sanitary condition of the shops There will be no danger of being shaved with soap and brushes that are not abso lately clean The luau who shaves you must have served at least three years apprenticeship and have been examined by a State board composed of men who have served five years at their trade and who are thoroughly competent There will be no political influence by which a man obtain a certificate and if he fails to comply with the law a fine and imprisonment wittresult One thing in that State which has been more detrimental to the barber business than any other is the barber colleges Time socalled barbers that they turn out every year know little about the practical side of the business

various styles of shoes now for every occasion that choice can be made from a large line as to which are really the best fitted to the foot and the pocketbook For out door wear and walking in cold and rainy weather nothing is more comfortable or desirable than the mannish boot which supersedes the rubber overshoe disliked by so many mannish shoe we are following our English cousins who are noted as great walkers and who have found a heavy walking boot the most comfortable for outdoor service For walking or driving the derby glove is the proper thing the thick kid protect ing the hands from the cold A glove should never be worn that has a rip in it If there is not time to visit the shop where it was bought it can be repaired neatly at home with a needle and fine cotton thread as near the color of the kid as possible Turning the glove wrong side out and sewing the edges together will take but a few moments and serve ones peare of mind as a ripped glove is always exasperating to the wearer Be sure cotton thread is used as silk will cut the glove Muffs for bridesmaids are taking the place ot the timehonored bouquetsor fans but even though winter is here these do not suggest cold weather Most of them look as though they were to be carried to a garden party At a recent swell wedding the maid of honor carried a muff made of Parma violets and Bade roses edged with sable Some beautiful ones seen recently were of yellow chry santhemums borderedon each end with mimosa In the center was a spray of yellow roses mixed with lilies of the valley which fell to the knee These muffs were on a chain of filigree gold and pearls the gift of the bride At another wedding the maids had muffs of pale mauve orchids suspended on turquoise ribbon Variations can be rung on these to suit the costumes of the maids and the color of the surroundings The new cloaks this season are not ex actly beautiful to the eye but they have a decided way of announcing that It is this seasons cloak It requires a very good figure to carry off one withstraight seams at the sides and not conforming to the figure in the slightest degree Let us hope this revival of our grandmothers days will soon pass

friend Anent the rise in the price of diamonds the gem so dear to every womans heart the following clipped from our exchanges may be of interest White diamonds the most popular among buyers are seldom what they pretend to be for a stone clear and transparent is more rare than one thinks There are red blue brown yellow green and pink dia monds heat also often changes the color of a stone There are more yellow dia monds of different shades than one can count and they are often very beautiful A diamond with a rose color hue is very rare while those with red tints like d ruby are still rarer and are considered the most wonderful of lovely gems There are only a few of them and a Russian Emperor paid 100000 for one of ten carats weight A black diamond is nearly as much a rarity as a red one but it is not so good to look upon and blue dia monds rank next The dark blue ones look like sapphires except for the play of colors peculiar to the diamond alone The mines of India furnish the only real blue stones While a real emerald col ored diamond is rare those with a green tinge are quite plentiful Tile museum of natural history in Paris has several examples of green diamonds but Dresden has the most famous and it is otie of the five marvels of gems known to the world SItE WAS PREPARED Time vicar of a little parish in Devon shire always felt it to be his duty to give each young couple a
