OKLAHOMA LABOR UNIT.
A REVIEW OE THE BUSINESS CONCERNS THAT ARE FRIENDLY 10 OUR CAUSE
The initial edition of the Oklahoma
Labor Unit contains a number of
write-ups representative of the busi-
ness and professional interests of Ok-
lahoma City and vicinity... It was the
aim of the management to have the
first issue of the Oklahoma Labor
Unit contain, as far as it was possi-
ble, a complete representation of the
friends of our cause. To say that we
have been successful requires only a
glance of our readers over the para-
graphs of the business and profession-
al interests represented herein, who
so willingly co-operated with the man-
agement in making this edition a sig-

AMERICAN NATIONAL BANK.
The commercial and financial stim-
ulus of any community is largely con-
trolled by the operations of the finan-
cial institutions of that community.
These institutions form the best in-
dex as to the actual state of prosper-
ity and success of a city. The Amer-
ican National Bank, located at 26 N.
Broadway, is one of the best local
banking institutions. They transact
a general banking business. This con-
cern has long geen known for the fair
dealing and conservative methods of
its officers, and they have rendered

HILL'S BUSINESS COLLEGE.
It is the primary object of our or-
ganization to give our support and
encouragement to those concerns and
institutions who are known to bold
the proper interest in the welfare « f
the laboring people. We have found
that Hill's Business College, of Okla-
homa City, deserves a hearty support
and patronage from our members and
other citizens, and we wish it every
success and prosperity in Its impor-
This institution has no connection,
whatever, with any other college bear-
ing the same name. Its president is
a bona fide citizen of this city, having
invested in property here, and his
interests all lie in this community. The
management has, at all times, con-
ducted its affairs in a most careful
and straightforward manner, and has
been liberal and public spirited, it
is a pleasure to indorse and recom-
mend an institution of this high char-
acter. It has, in all its dealings, been
known to be reliable and honorable.
We feel that we would be omitting a
most important name were we to fail
in giving proper space to this impor-
tant home enterprise.
We understand that it is now
making a special low rate for its sum-
mer term, and we hope that our mem-
bers who have children to send to
school, wtll remember this worthy

Rev. Chas. Stenzie, Gov. Folk of
Missouri, and John B. Lemon, Treas-
urer of the American Federation of
Labor, last Sunday at Kansas City,
Mo., addressed a huge and enthusias-
tic audience. The subject treated was
"Presbyterian Evangelism Among La-
boring Men." The Rev. Mr. Stenzie,
who was formerly a union machinist,
srnt an Invitation to every union la-
bor man in the city. Non-union men
were also Invited.
After seven weeks of negotiations
between the coal miners and opera-
tors of Kansas City, Mo., Oklahoma
and Arkansas, an agreement has been
reached. The scale is for two years
and the terms are practically the same
as existed last year. The average wage
of a miner will be $4.29 a day.
V. H. BOETTCHER.
Few stores in the city enjoy the
prestige given to V. H. Boettcher, the
enterprising dry goods and ready-
to - wear clothes merchant, located
at 212 W. Main street. For sev-
eral years, Mr. Boettcher has been in
business at the same stand, and his
continued prosperity is but a sure
sign of the confidence that his cus-
tomers have in him and the volume of
business that he thereby reaps.
Mr. Boettcher Is a strong friend to
union labor, and his location in the
midst of a community wherein live a
large number of union employes has
caused him and his business to be-
come of the greatest importance in
the district. It began very small, but
is now easily the largest store of the
kind in the neighborhood. Everything
in the line of dry goods, Including
ladles' wearables of all sorts, are to be
found at his store at prices that would
tempt almost any one to buy.
The name, "Lion Store," is as famil-
iar in Oklahoma City and this entire
section as the name of the president
of the United States. It is a house-
hold word wherever the ladies are
congregated, and are discussing the
season's styles, and the attractive of-
ferings of the shops. The Lion Store
on West Main street was never more
resplendent with seasonable goods
than at the present time. The store
is, in fact, a real exposition of the
best products of the market in ladles
and children's wear, in dress goods,
gloves, hosiery, lace, ribbon, gowns,
hats, etc. Never before in the history
of the house has every department
been more replete with the brightest
and newest things upon the market,
never before has the stock been ;o
large and varied, and this applies to
merchandise of every description car-
ried by the modern dress goods and
dry goods emporiums. Mr. Gardner,
the head of this modern and up-to-
date house, Is a man noted for progres-
sive and enterprising methods, and he
•stands high in the estimation of the
highest Integrity, and as business men
of aggressive habits and acumen are

this character of trade. Supplies com-
ing from this business man are known
for their high standard of quality and
reliability, and the best delivery serv-
ice is guaranteed. There is no better
lumber handled in Oklahoma City than
can be bought of this citizen and his
pi ices are the lowest possible.
That It pays to handle the best that
the market affords, and sell at a low
margin of profit is evidenced by the
large and Increasing business at this
man's place. When you have an
order to give in this line do not for-
get who has a kindly interets in the
welfare and progress of labor's affairs.

J. W. JENKINS' SONS MUSIC COM-
Located at 223 W. Main street is
well known music house of the above
concern, who carry a complete line of
everything that goes to make up a
first class store of this character. The
manager, Mr. Samuel E, Beatty is
recognized as being a friend of the
wage-earners, and they hold him in
the highest esteem and have co-oper-
ated in every way to help him further
the best interests of the concern that
he represents in this city. The mem-
bers of the organized labor movement
will do well to give this store a trial
whenever they wish anything in his
MILL WORKERS OUT.
The Mill Workers' Union of Fresno,
numbering between 300 and 400 men,
struck last week, because they were
asked to do 9 hours' work under an
eight hour schedule. Two big planing
mills are involved, and there is no
hope of an immediate settlement.
SIDNEY L. BROCK DRY GOODS
A thoroughly reliable concern which
has received a splendid patronaga
from our members and other readers
and one which is justly entitled to its
popularity is the one that heads this
editorial. A splendid and unsurpassed
stock of goods is carried and the
prices are always the lowest passible
on a first class stock of goods. The
lines on which the laboring classes
save most at this store are shoes,
carpets, rugs, curtains, dress goods,
silks, ready - made dresses, skirts,
hosiery and underwear.
Our members should impress upon
the minds of their families the neces-
sity of patronizing the friends of labor
at all times. No concern is more gen-
erally known as a staunch friend of
the cause of labor than this reliable
and up-to-date business house. They
have treated their customers and em-
ployes with due courtesy and con-
sideration and have won the high
regard of our people. Customers can
save materially by purchasing at this
establishment and we trust that this
store will count a steady and increas-
ing amount of patrongae from our
members and friends. The great rul-
ing principle of this house is that
every article must be exactly as rep-
resented. It is just such fair and lib-
eral class of merchants that we wish
to give every encouragement and pat-
ronage in their business.
J The nine-hour law, which took effect
March 4th, is the cause of trouble be-
tween the telegraphers of the Chicago.
Milwaukee and St. Paul road. A strike
I is threatened, and 300 men are affect-
ed. The principal point of contention
is concerning meal hours.
We howl about Russian methods
and sympathize with the working peo-
ple of that country. We should sym-
pathize with those people who have
been enslaved. That is the reason
why we have no use for the open
shop or its advocates, because It
means enslavement for the American
working people. Labor will never
stand for slavery such as Is proposed
by the open shop champions.
ALEXANDER DRUG COMPANY.
Located at the comer of First and
Harvey is the well known and justly
popular establishment of the Alex-
ander Drug Co. They are wholesale
druggists, and as such have built up
a very enviable reputation for their
square dealing with customers and
empolyes. They will handle nothing
but the very best of goods, and being
large buyers are always in a position
to name the very lowest prices. Their
large patronage enables them to keep
their stock always clean and fresh,
and their delivery service Is excellent.
| You can rest assured that when you
order anything from the Alexander
Drug Co., it will be of the very best
quality, at the lowest prices, and be
delivered promptly and with dispatch.
Mr. Ed. S. Malone is the president
of this concern, and we bespeak for
them greater prosperity in the future
than they have had in the past.

The convention of the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers, now in ses-
sion in Columbus, Ohio has decided to
allow its delegates $7 per day, without
expenses, while in attendance. The
convention is costing the Brotherhood

a few of us who do not appreciate the
importance of this concern In our city.

price. The Palace Steam Laundry has

its business Is Increasing dally. Their
delivery Is of the best, and all you
have to do Is to have the wagon call
for your soiled linen and then It will
be returned to you thoroughly and well
laundered, and all for the most rea-
sonable price. All thev ask Is that
you give them a trial. They are keen
business getters, and are always out
after the goods.
They pay a high scale of wages, and
the management employs nothing but
skilled help. It Is the duty of every
citizen to employ their services so as
to enable them to pay the very highest
wages, and not force them to cut
prices and wages, so as to compete
with inferior and cheaper laundries.
The superintendence of this merito-
rious concern rests In the very able
hands of L. C. Towler. whose ability
and integrity is too well known in com-
mercial and social circles to need com-
