I VPllM'S CENTRAL LI V/ll O DRUG STORE WESTFIELD WINS CtJP Ezra Meeker in Westfield. PITTS' DEPARTMENT STORE Ezra Meeker's most unique con-' vejance, a typical prairie schooner, drawn by a team of oxen, arrived in VVestfield Saturday. He is an aged pioneer of the far west and one of the many who tramped the blazed Oregon trail over half a hundred years ago. That great highway over which thousands poured into the land of promises, the great west, had almost been forgotten. Railroads had taken its place and even the aged settlers who had traveled over it long, before were continually disputing cach other as to just where the old trail was at certain places. Thus is came about that Ezra Meeker erected a prairie "schooner" for himself and family and set out from his home in Puyallup, Wash., Jan 29, 1906, determined to save for future generations the old blazed trail over which their grandfathers had travelled. At interval* he has erected stone markers so that there will not be any need of iurfher disputes or arguments. The outfit was in charge of Bruce Mardon, of Spokane, Wash., who has driven every mile of the long trip. On? of the oxen with the outfit is one of the original team that started from Washington a year ago last January. 1 he other was bought in Omaha to replace one which had be- worn out by the drive through the Rockies.

That labor organizations as they are now controlled are beneficial to the business interests of the United States. Bradford had the affirmative and endeavored to prove that by reducing hours of labor and increasing rates of wages the unions had benefitted the laboring man by increasing his wants, his. purchasing power and general standard of living, also that they were not responsible for the evils which have come out of the conflct between labor and capital and have worked for the employers' advantage in increased efficiency and greater output. The speakers brought out their points well and made an excellent impression, especially Irene Gushing in summing up for the affirmative. Their rebuttal was not backed up by proper authority, and vyas more oratorical than argumentative.TRUSTEES MEETING. The Board met in regular session Friday evening, June 7th, 1907, at 8 p. m President Welch and Trustees Pegler, Hall, Munson, Fitch present.

Flagler opened the debate for Westfield. arguing that unions are not beneficial to labor, because the increase in wages is not real but only apparent because of the amount of time spent in idleness, and the decrease in its purchasing power. The speaker was easy and forceful, bringing out his points clearly and emphasizing them with appropriate gestures. The "Bradford Era" called him in its Saturday edition, "a promising young platform orator.". Clayton J. Buttery followed by showing the evil effects of labor unions on capital. These are (1) limiting output by reason of the union rules about over-time, piece-work and individual production; (2) cutting down profits by increasing cost of production, and (15) interfering with security of capital by strikes, by unenforcable agreements and the failure of arbitration when against the union. His delivery was excellent, being strictly argumentative and the subject matter was so well arranged that practically no rebuttal was brought against it.

Application on the required forms were received for permission to lay cement walks by H. C. Jones south side of Clinton street and Anna J. Good rich east side of Franklin street and on motion the requests were granted. On motion a rebate certifica te was granted to Dr. C. £. Welch for 90 dollars for cement walk in front of hia property on East Main street. H. N. Y. Lamb & Cowan, I. E. JONES, \^sb£ield, Harold W. Thompson showed that the unions did not benefit the great mass of *the general public. No one outside of those trades in which unions are organized has an increased income because of them and yet because of the increased cost of necessaries of life, the purchasing power of the general public is reduced thus lessening demands. General business is interfered with because of the warfare between capital and labor carried on as the undue activity of the unions. International trade has fallen off because of the increased labor cost, decreased efficiency and the loss caused by trikes. Thompson has participated in all the debates this year and his experience has made him cool and collected. He presents his case in a very persuasive way with considerable oratorical effectiveness.m.

So enormous are these deposits that predictions are made that the new Camp •will soon become the leading copper producer of the country. Nevada has always been a record breaker in the way of mining discoveries. Forty years ago it opened up the famous Comatock mine which proved to be the richest mine ever opened in the world, a single vein producing nearly $500,000,000. Just south of this wonderful mine these new copper discoveries are being made, and mining men are predicting that this district will put the famous Comstock in the shade. Those who buy in the early days into districts of this kind make enormous profits. A company has been organized which has secured a large tract covering the richest deposits of this district, and it is offering a limited number of shares of stock to parties who may become Charter Members at 20 per cent of its par value. The stock will soon be listed on the New York market, and will advance rapidly.

Junk Dealers in More Trouble The Sukerneck Brothers of this city, dealers in junk, are at the present time having no end of difficulties with a business rival of theirs by the name of Taylor, who does business in and around Westlield. A number of small junk dealers who sell to the Sukernecks have been in the habit of going to Westfield and soliciting business there, afterwards selling their wares to the Sukernecks.

He also claims that Taylor brough the charges merely for the purpose of crowding him out of Westfield territory. Taylor, so Sukerneck says, sends his men to this city to buy junk, and that they have no business here. It" this is the case and the men are caught they will be prosecuted.
