Abstract: If X is a compact totally ordered space, we obtain the existence of an irreducible semigroup with idempotents X, $ {\text{Irr}}(X)$, with the property that any irreducible semigroup with idempotents X is the idempotent separating surmorphic image of $ {\text{Irr}}(X)$. Furthermore, it is shown that the Clifford-Miller endomorphism on $ {\text{Irr}}(X)$ is an injection when restricted to each $ \mathcal{H}$-class of $ {\text{Irr}}(X)$. A construction technique for noncompact semigroups is given, and some results about the structure of such semigroups are obtained.
