Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, who
was recently sentenced to one year
in jail for contempt of court and Is
now at liberty pending an appeal, Is
today celebrating his 59th birthday.
The famous labor leader was born
In Loudon, January 27, 1850, the son
of Saul (iompers, a cigar maker. In
a biography of Gompers approved by
himself, he says of his father that
he "was a cigar maker, an indus-
trious workman, a kind father, and
a man of remarkable memory." He
declares of his mother that she "was
a woman of excellent antecedents,
her parents being highly educated;
and through her influence on his in-
tellectual and moral life he was le.l
to study ami to seek to benefit his
fellow man." lie further fills out
nis genealogical background by de-
scribing his grandfather as "a man
of a philosophical turn of mind, of
extraordinary courage and fearless-
ness and well informed through
knowledge acquired by wide travel in
Mr. Gompors has the appearance
of a Jew, although his family sprang
from Holland. Hut his father's name
(Saul) would seem to bear out that
assumption, but in none of the avail-
able biographical accounts of his
parentage is any space given to the
religions beliefs of either his father
and mother or himself except this
one sentence: "lie was affilited with
the Society for Ethical Culture of
New York City, established in 1Nt>7
by Felix Adler." A friend writing
an intimate sketch in a labor paper
says that Gompers does not belong to
any church; that he is too broad for
creeds or sectarian beliefs.
We have Mr. Gompers word for ii
that he had the conventional begin-
nings of a "self-made man." He re-
cords of himself that, "As a boy,
Samuel was anxious to learn and he
often neglected or forgot to eat, in
his eagerness to master the lessons
he had set for himself us a task
* * Being the oldest child of a
family of eight, he began to aid his
father in their support as soon as he
could earn wages." He worked at his
trade of cigar making from his tenth
until his thirty-seventh year. Since
that time he has been a writer on
labor topics, an agitator and an or-
ganizer of unions.
When he was fourteen years old
and when he had been in this country
only one year, he helped to organize
the Cigar Makers' International un-
ion, which he served as secretary and
president for six years. He also ed-
ited its L eal paper in that period.
In one of his approved sketches,
he refers to himself as "persistent
agitator," and says that even those
who disagree with him in his funda-
mental principles, and do not ap-
prove the methods of the organiza-
tion he represents, must admit that
his elf rts have resulted in much
that Is of great and general benefit
to workers everywhere. Apparently
this is to be taken as Mr. Gompers's
own view of Ills work. He organized
the American Federation of Labor
and has been its president from the
beginning (1881), with the excep-
tion cf two years. It is a salaried of-
fice and enables Mr. Gompers to live
Stories to the effect that President
Gompers has amassed a fortune from
his connection with the American
Federation of Labor are apparently
malicious fabrications, without foun-
dation of fact. On this subject Mr.
Gompers has said:
"1 have no real estate and little
personal property. 1 have not an In-
vestment. I have no estate and when
1 die all I will leave my family will
be $f 50, my Cigarmakers* Union in-
surance. I have no other property.
I have no ambition to have any. I
do not care for many. 1 believe I
can get the few things that I want
if not as president of the American
Federation, at my trade or some oth-
er work. I am poor. I am proud to
say that 1 am poor."
Mr. Gompers told a friend that
"such a thing as a servant in the
Gompers' household never had been

T'opeka, Jan. 27. Oklahoma pro-
poses to remove Its prisoners from
the Kansas penitenitary at once This
fact was discussed in some corre-
spondence given out by Governor
Stubbs tonight. Governor Stubbs
wrote to Governor Haskell as fol-
Dear Sir—-Today's Associated
Press dispatches state that the Okla-
homa legislature has authorized you
to parole the OKlahonia prisoners
now confined In the state penitenti-
ary at Lansing, Kan. In view of the
fact that our penitentiary is over-
crowded, and the fact that the con-
tract for the case of such prisoners
expires on J a nil ray 21, we would be
pleased to have you remove the pris-
oners at as early a date as is possi-
ble without inconvenience to you or
the state of Oklahoma.
In case you feel it advisable to pa-
role any great number of those pris-
oners at one time, we would be
pleased to know what arrangements
your state will make for transporta-
tion of such paroled prisoners from
e Kansas penitentiary to Oklaho-
i. An early reply will oblige.
Governor Haskell replied:
My Dear Governor Our contract
expires January 31. We are doing
our best to be able to remove our
prisoners on or before that date.
1 notice by the press comment
about our possibly releasing a large
number of prisoners on parole. This

sured that there is no danger of our

(Writtera foir the E&gH® Iby Robert L
7A Cavalry, Fft. Rnley,
I was strolling down the avenue
One cold December morn
I was feeling pretty rotten
And my coin was all but gone
I was well nigh disgusted
And didn't know what to do
So I just kept right on strolling
And of things I tlio't a few.
I chanced to look upon a sign
All bright and shining new,
It certainly did look good to me
From my standing point of view
Twas a picture of some soldiers
Who had nothing else to do
Hut stroll around quite natty
And show some ladies the view
I considered for a minute
And up the stairs i went
into the little ofiice
On a certain object bent.
A quick glance around me
When at a desk I saw
A fellow just like the picture,
With stripes on his arms galore.
He asked me what I wanted,
And in a brave voice I told,
1 wanted to join the army
And be a soldier bold.
He asked me a lot of questions,
I did a lot of stunts,
Went thru an examination,
He accepted me at once.
And off I went the very next day
To Fort Slocum up the sound
And for three long weary months
They drilled me round and round.
Twas early in the spring time
When the blue birds began to match,
They shipped off eighty rookies
And 1 was one of the batch.
They sent us to Ft. Riley.
We landed there at night
And the next day we drew equip-
Holy smoke! it was a fright.

I;They marched us to the stables
J And a seargant. who was boss,

| How to groom an army horse,
He taught us how to saddle,
| How to pose and how to stroll,
? How to shine our old rusty sabers,
| And to make the blanket roll.

But there was one thing that was

They didn't show the fatigue clothes,
