Pennsylvania Road Contends That it
Alone Has the Authority to
Deal With Employes
Philadelphia. Aug. 2G. The Penn
jylvania railroad's position in regard
to the I'nited States railroad labor
board's decision ordering new elec
tions of employes to represent the
men in conferences with the manage
ment was defined today by W. W.
Atcrburv, vice-president of the Penn
sylvania, at a meeting in his offices
with twenty Philadelphia and New
York newspaper men.
-We believe," he said, "the board
has gene beyond its authority that
it has extended that authority to ad
iptrative matters rather than those
of arbitration and we are going to
them frankly and in a friendly spirit
to see if we are right. In any event
the public must be the final judge.
"Our proposition is supported by a
majority of our active employes, with
representatives of whom the manage
ment met Monday. We hope that the
board will grant us a hearing, as we
want to take our own employes be
fore it and try to prove the sincereity!
of our purpose. The railroad labor
board has a very hard problem to
solve, and I believe it ia trying to
jtolve that problem earnestly and
justly. We maintained and still main
tain that the company alone has au
thority to deal with its own employes.
"We did not object to designations
on the ballots showing whether the
candidates for employed representa
tives were organization men or not.
Many of them at the last election did
have such designations.
"I do not believe the shopmen will
strike, for there is so little for which
to strike," said Mr. Atterbury. "Cer
tainly not for wages, for Ihey are
settled by the railroad labor board."

he started the search for the young

and the result was that be was ap

Sheriff Qninton was notified that it
would probably be necessary to have
papers -issued1 to insure the return
of the young man from the west and
enroute to Wyoming he will stop at
Lincoln to have the necessary extra

Advices from Douglas indicate
that the young man would like to

Henry Stull came down this morn

hours in this city visiting with
friends and looking after some mat

In spite of reports to the contrary
by state papers, the ravages of the
Missouri river at Urownville have
been stopped to a great extent, al
though some of the rip-rapping work
which had been done there has been
undone during the past few- days.
This report was brought back from
Urownville today by a man who
visited the scene of the cutting.
Had the efforts of the workers on
the bank been entirely unavailing,
he declared, the entire bank and
tracks of the I'.urlington would have
been swallowed by this time.
The cutting has been deflected
farther down the river and the Bur
lington tracks now seem safe, al
though the signal to proceed slowly
along that part of the run is given
each time the trains near Urownville.
The Wood brothers, of Lincoln,
realize, however, that they have a
hard job ahead of them. Their big
boat is still on the job laying the
rip-rap work. Several car loads of
coal were unloaded at that point
Monday for use on the boat.
After the heavy rains of the past
few days, the river carried away part
of the rip-rapping. It is doing some
cutting south of the village now. It
will be some time before the river's
antics are entirely stopped, but work
ers feel confident that in the end
they will be entirely successful.
People continue to motor to Urown
ville in largo numbers to watch the

Yesterday was the twenty-fifth
wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs.
W. H. Seybert of this city and in

was very prettily arranged with the
decorations of flowers of the late
Grand Island, Aug. 2tl. Mrs. Kate:
O'llare has come to this city, made;
her address, and gone and little ado
has beon made about it. Only a snmlr
audience of about 300 attended in an
auditorium that would seat four times
as many. Not even a single case of
heckling took place. -As a result of
this fact, those who are familiar!
with a conference that was held four;
or five days before her appearance j
here, are congratulating the Ameri-i
can Legion and the city in general,!
over the better counsel that finally
prevailed,' namely that Mrs. O'llare j
was permitted to have'her say unmo-i
lested and was in fact deprived of;
the advertising any unusual inter-;
ference with public speaking invari-'
ably affords. For at this conference
it was suggested that efforts be taken
to prevent the woman from speaking.
It was only a conference of five or,
six leading members of the Legion,1
the majority of whom, after some de-J
liberation, were of the conviction j
that non-interference was the best,
policy. T.he speaker dwelt almost en- i
tirely cn the subject of prison and.
prison rctorms.
