tilt TOWN OF EDMOND
A Special Writer lor the Labor Unit
Tells of the Resources and In-
dustries of that Prosperous
FARMERS' STATE BANK.
This prosperous financial institution
of Edmond was opened for business in
June, 1907. Capital stock is $15,000,
with surplus and profits amounting to
$2,700. The equipment consists of
conveniences usually placed in banks,
with fire proof vault, burglar and fire
proof screw door Manganese safe. De.
posote are guaranteed by the depos
itors guarantee fund of Oklahoma.
While all precautions for safety are
taken, the greatest safety is in the
class and charactcr of those who own
and operate the band. These are, W.
H. Tuttle, president; E. L. Sheldon,
vice-president; Gottlieb H. Fink,
cashier, and Elmer E. Griffin, assis-
tant cashier. These officers, excepting
Mr. Griffin, included with Messrs. Wm.
Courtney, Chas. Nordstrom, Wm. Ef-
ferding, Dr. P. S. Peck, Geo. H. Dod-
son and W. M. King compose the board
of directors. Points noteworthy of
this concern are that all employes are
under bond. No loans are made to
employes. No matter how small the
depositor, his business is appreciated
here and his interests guarded the
same as others. Deposits average
$45,000 to $50,000. The Farmers' State
Bank officers and owners are men
who do things. They are interested in
the Farmers' Union Clearing House
here, gin and warehouse at Piedmont
and Cashion, and the Lockridge Grain
and Elevator Co., of Lockridge. In
the bank vault are safety deposit
boxes for the fall use of patrons of
the bank, and every convenience is
afforded the public consistent with
good banking rules. The Farmers'
State Dank of Edmond ranks among
the very safe and prosperous banking
houses of the new state, is a credit to
Edmond and to its owners, and de-
serves the unbounded public confi-
dence it has upon the Integrity and
stability of its owners, most of whom
are substantial farmers of this sec-

THE FEDERATION OF LABOR CON-
NEW MANAGEMENT OF THE ALTA.
F. A. Johnson has succeeded Mr.
Oliver In the management of the Alta
hotel, this city. While the latter was
a clever landlord, Mr. Johnson, who
is recently from Asheville, N. C„ is
also experienced in the business, is
a comparatively young man, likewise
a newspaper man of considerable ex-
perience, active and alert to the best
interests of patrons. We may men-

Under the shadow of the "injunc-
tion contempt" proceedings in Wash-
| Ington, the American Federation of
Labor held its annual meeting in Den-
ver, during the middle of November.
It was a great convention, everyway.
Great in its personnel, great in the
speeches that were made, great in the
manner in which its business was tran-
sacted, and great in the subjects
which were handled by the nearly
400 delegates who attended the conven-
tion. The federation has grown in
membership and its financial strength.
It is constantly developing in import-
ance as a factor in the industrial de-
mocracy for the securing of which it
is making such splendid efforts.
There was a strong undercurrent of

Mr. H. J. Jackson of the contract-
ing firm of Palmer & Jackson was a
caller at The Unit office this week.
Messrs. Palmer & Jackson are mem-
bers of Local 276, Carpenters and
Joiners Union, and employ union men
thoughout their entire work. Mr.
Jackson reports conditions very fa-
vorable as regards building and has
several contracts on hand, one of

We wish to call the attention of union
men and their families to the adver-
tisement of the "Best" Gum Company,
which appears in this paper. There is
no purer or better chewing gum on
the market, and the fact that this com-
pany Is an Independent concern com
petlng with the trust entitles it to our
support in every possible way.
Make a practice of calling for and
demanding these goods at all times, as
in so doing you will be lending en-
couragement to an enterprise which
is in full sympathy with organized
labor. The "Best" Gum Company Is
given our unqualified endorsement.
toward a more scientific handling of
labor's affairs, especially In the bet-
ter grouping of the crafts. This was
manifested by the formation of the
building trades and the metal trades
departments, and In the probable in-
auguration of a department for the
crafts engaged in the railroad indus-
tries. Such organizations should very
materially reduce the jurisdictional
strife which has consumed so much
of the federation's time in former
years, and which has been a constant
source of hindrance in the making of
satisfactory contracts with employers.
The political program of the feder-
ation was prett ythoroughly gone into.
Despite the prophecies of the daily
press. Samuel Gompers and the ex-
ecutive council were heartily ap-
plauded for their efforts in the last
campaign. Indeed, there wasn't a
suggestion of criticism from the con-
vention with reference to their action.
Mr. Gompers is more firmly in-
trenched than ever in the hearts and
hopes of the federation. It is quite
apparent that he knows labor as no
other man does, not only collectively,
but as individuals.
The legislation of the convention
looking toward better things for la-
bor was put through with enthusiasm.
The keenness of perception and the
grasping of the really big things pre-
sented would have done credit to any
kind of an organization. Surely no
association of employers has a broad-
er vision than had these delegates
who represented the men of labor at

THE OGILVIE CIGAR COMPANY,
Billiards, Pool and Bowling—104 W.
In the movement recently started
among our working people to give j
their combined support to those con- j
cerns whose relations with both labor !
and the public are fair and just, we I
■desire to call special attention to the ;
concern mentioned above. After a j
careful investigation we find that this j
enterprise has never done anything In ]
the least antagonistic toward labor. '
but has In many instances manifested j
the most friendly interest In the labor j
cause, and is entitled to the co-opera- I
tion of all who have the best interests j
of labor at heart.
When in a mood to enjoy a game of I
billiard, pool or bowling drop in at !
Ogilvie's. And remember that they
handle the celebrated Monarch cigars. I
Working people will make no mis |
take in giving their support to this J
well known enterprise, and as long as '

ent commendable manner we wish [or j
