Snyder and his wife Many returns of the anniversary of their marriage and Hopes they May live to celebrate their Diamond wedding. A Typo Raphial tip. The Crawfordsville typographical Union has issued order no. 1 which has been distributed to tie different proprietors of panting offices in the City. On the circular Are printed two sections of the Constitution. While there is not an office in the City which is not willing to pay every possible cent that the business will stand to its hands Aud every proprietor would be glad to pay More the circular states quot while it is not the object nor the intention of this Union to dictate to the employer How his business should be conducted yet it will at All times conform strictly to the Constitution Aud by Laws of said there is a Covert threat in this sentence unintentional we believe on the part of its authors yet there is a Well defined Case of dictation now known in the City where a Young Man was informed that he would not be allowed to work at a certain amount of wages and that did he do so he would be bounced from the Union forthwith. The Union is thus standing in the Light of one of its own members. It proposes to keep him from earning fair wages during the Winter just because the owners of printing offices can not pay As much As the Union demands Tor this Man. They Are standing in their own Light and Are autocratic. They offer this Man nothing More than their sympathy and a Promise of a Day s work now and then when one of them happens to want to Lay off. This is All they offer and Force him at the same time to remain Idle when he could be earning Good living wages. An organization of the printers for social advancement and to secure the Best wages in Syible under the circumstances would to welcomed with Delight by ail men. The news after proprietors of this City Are willing to do the fair thing or even willing to Strain the business to pay the compositors Good wages. The owner of any business is us posed to know More about his income and expense account than any of the employees and unless they have Confidence enough in their employer to know that he will do the Best by them he can afford it is a poor Chance for them to get along together.
