MEN SCHEDULED TO STRIKE
Chicago, June 30. the following
table, prepared from information
supplied by the federated shop crafts,
indicates the number of men in each
craft, scheduled to go on strike at
10 o'clock tomorrow morning:
International Asociation of Ma
International Brotherhood of Boil
ermakers, Iron Shipbuilders and
Helpers of America, 18.000.
Amalgamated Sheet Metal Work
ers" International Alliance, 11,000.
Blacksmiths, Drop Forgers and Help

Apprentices, 20,000. j Chairman Hooper anounced that
Lieutenant Governor Pelham A.
Barrows is In the race for the Re
publican nomination for congress in
this district. He is popular with the
people and has always been a vote
getter.- He was elected the first time
he ran for lieutenant governor by a
' majority over his principal opponent
of 22,864 which was increased the
last election to 77.400. In that elec
tion he polled 10,530 more votes in
this district than did his democratic
opponent and 4,206 more votes than
both his opponents combined.
One of the strong arguments in
favor of the nomination and election
of Mr. Barrows is tiie fact that if
elected he will not go into congress
handicapped by being unknown. Prob
ably no man has ever gone out cf Ne
braska for a good many years who has
become so well known over the entire
country as he. As Commander-in-Chic
of his national organization, traveling
from one coast to the other, speaking
in most of the important cities of the
United States, he was accorded enthusiastic receptions wherever he
appeared and was greeted by many of the prominent men of the coun
try. Naturally members cf congress, and he is personally acquainted
with many of them, will be interested in knowing the type of man
the First Nebraska district is sending to take the place of Congress
man Reavis, one of the very well known members of that body.
Should Lieutenant Governor Barrows be elected, he will go to "Wash
igton with the prestige of being known and step into that body
known either personally or by reputation by a large number of ita
members. This will mean a great deal for this district and with
the experience wMch the lieutenant governor has had in public life,
will be a valuable asset to Nebraska. NemaJia County Republican.

This morning when the stroke of
10 o'clock was sounded the shop
crafts affected in the recent strike
order, ceased their labors in the lo
cal Burlington shops and to the num
ber of 415, quietly and without dem
onstration, laid down their tools and

The strike came very peaceably as
the men quietly left their work in
perfect order and the railroad com
pany adopted no hostile attitude in
the matter. The statement as to the
railroad view of the matter is that it
is a question between the railroad
board and the labor organizations
and not the railroad companies.
There will be no effort made by the
Burlington to import workers or to
operate their departments aside from
those which are not affected by the
strike and with this atitude there is
little probability of any violence or

Chicago, June 30. Federal inter
vention by the United States railroad
labor board today failed to halt the
strike of 400,000 railway shopmen
called for 10 o'clock tomorrow morn
ing. Flouting, according to Chairman
Ben W. Hooper, the board's efforts to
effect a settlement of the shopmen's
grievances before the walkout took
place, B. M. Jewell, head of the shop
crafts union and the six internation
al union heads, refused to appear for
an official investigation of the strike
by the board. No further attempt to
forestall the strike would be made,
Chairman Ben V. Hooper announced
in adjourning the federal body's in
quiry. A threatened strike of 400,000
railway maintenance employes was
at least postponed, however, by the
board's intervention. The strike of
this group which had been expected,
to parallel that of the shop men.
will wait further action of the or
ganization's executive council, ac-
cording to tne announcement ui ju.

Labor Board Can Do No More
Chairman Hooper explained it was
not the board's purpose to "prevent
any one striking." but that it did de-
y ss -
t X v ... $
FORCE NOT AFFECTED
"no practical purpose could be serv
ed by compelling the presence of B.
M. Jewell, head of the shop crafts at
an adjoured hearing tomorrow, the
day set for the shop strike.
The board, Mr. Hooper declared,
has served the full extent of its au
thority, acting under the transporta
tion act. He declared that Mr. Jew
ell had "flouted a government body
in refusing to appear." The board,
therefore, would take no further
steps to prevent an actual walkout.
Chairman Hooper announced, and
the hearing was adjourned.
President Jewell's failure to at
tend the peace conference brought
severe condemnation from the chair
man of the board, who, in closing the
inquiry, declared the rail union's
chief blood was "on his own head."
"Mr. Jewell has flouted a govern
ment tribunal," concluded Chairman
Hooper. "He has shouldered the re
sponsibility of his own volition, and
the board desires to pursue the mat
ter no further."
Ignore the Board's Snmmons
Neither Mr. Jewell nor any of the
shop crafts heads answered the
board's summons. Instead they sent
a letter maintaining the right of the
shopmen to strike and expressing the
belief that the board's hearing would
but result in a "confused and disor
derly strike movement, lacking au
thoritative control and almost in
evitably resulting in a mob-like ac
tion, pregnant with grave possibil
ities." Timothy Healy, president of the
stationary firemen and oilers, like
wise failed to appear when the
board's hearing convened, and sub
poenas were issued for them, sum
moning both Jewell and Healy be
fore the board. Mr. Healy arrived
just before the close of the session,
but Mr. Jewell was not found.
In contrast to the complete fail
ure to throttle the shopmen's strike,
the labor board's inquiry met with
marked success in the case of the
maintenance of way employes and
the contract cases of the twenty
three railroads also cited to appear
at today's investigation.
Twelve railroad representatives
turned the session into a testimonial
meeting as they arose, one after an
other, and announced their willing
ness to cancel all existing contracts
for the performance of railroad work
by outside firms, if thereby the strike
crisis might be relieved.
Three other union heads, in addi
tion to President Grable of the main
tenance of way brotherhood, gave
assurance to the board that no call
to quit work would be issued imme
diately. Maintenance of Way Men to Stick
The announced delay of the main
tenance of way strike call, which
had been expected tonight came af
ter a lengthy discussion between Mr.
Grable and Chairman Hooper. Mr.
Grable told the board that more
than half of 288.000 votes had al
ready been canvassed, the results
thus far showing "a big majority in
favor of a 6trike."
The employes' grievances, he ex
plained, included the $60,000,000
pay cut which goes into effect to
morrow, the contracting of track la
bor and removal of the eight hour
day thru several rule changes re
cently issued by the labor board. If
the men could have some assurance
of a rehearing on these grievances,
Mr. Grable said, he volunteered to
"use his influence to prevent a
Touching on the wage cut, Mr.
Grable declared that the cost of liv
ing as shown by government statis
tics had actually risen in the face of
the impending wage cut.
Chairman Hooper immediately
agreed that, whenever fact warrant
ed the board would readily reconsid
er wages in the light of changing
conditions. Mainly upon this assur
ance of renewed consideration of his
men's wages, Mr. Grable agreed that
no strike call would be issued to
night. Biliousness and Constipation
"For years I was troubled with
biliousness and constipation, which
made life miserable for me. My ap
petite failed me. I lost my usual
force and vitality. Pepsin prepara
tions and cathartics only made mat-
iters worse. I do not know where I
should have been today had I not
tried Chamberlain's Tablets. The
tablets relieve the ill feeling at once,
strengthen the digestive functions,
helping the system to do its work
naturally," writes Mrs. Rosa Potts,
Birmingham, Ala. Weyrich & Had
raba. DEATH OF LITTLE ONE
The many friends in this city of
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Marshall, Jr., of
Dayton, Ohio, will regret to learn
of the death of their infant daugh
ter there this morning. The deepest
sympathy will be felt for Mr. and
Mrs. Marshall in their hour of sor
row by their friends.
INSTALL NEW MACHINE
AT THE MOVIE GARDEN
Joe Bradley, of the U. S. Theatrical
Supply company, of Omaha, was here
yesterday and installed a new com
pensating arch machine at the Movie ,
Garden that will overcome the diffi- .
culty that has been found in pro-!
ducing the proper clearness and with i
the new machine the pictures should '
be the best that can be secured from
the standpoint of screening.
Mr. La r sen. the manager is striv

Western Electric Co. Awarded Bid
Tor Lamps and Stands at $3,
054; Installation, $1,701.
The city council met in special
session last evening and the full at
tendance of the membership was
present to take part in the decision
of the city on the letting of the con
tract for the new electroliers.
The various bids were opened at
the meeting of the council on last
Monday night and since that time
they have been threshed over by the
members of the light committee and
several sessions held with the rep
resentatives of tte various firms that
had bids on the work.
At the meeting last evening the
light committee continued their de
liberations until 9:15 and then sub
mitted the report on the matter of
the bids, recommending that the con
tract for the furnishing of lights, as
well as posts for the forty-eight new
lamps be awarded to the Western
Electric Co. and for the wiring and
installation to the W. W. Berger Co.
The bid of the Western Electric Co.
was $3,054. while the Berger com
pany on the installation asked for
S 1,701, both being the lowest bid
ders on the job.
There was some little discussion
as to whether or not the companies
should have submitted specimens of
the style of posts and lamps they ex
pected to use in the carrying out of
the contract, and on the adoption of
the report of the lighting commit
tee letting the contract, Councilmen
McCarthy and Howe voted no, and
Councilman McMaken passed, ' the
other seven members voted for the
report of the committee.
The lights decided on are of the
multiple system, single electrolier.
with twelve foot posts and fancy or
namental canopy globe and are very
classy looking lights of the latest
The council has not as yet decid
ed on the size of the lamps to be
used In the electroliers, as there is
some indecision as to whether 100,
200 or the present 400 watt lamps
would be the most effective.
This action of the council will dis
pose of the matter of putting in the
electroliers when Mayor Johnson
signs the contract, but the matter of
the current for the lights has not
been taken up yet by the council as
a whole, although the light commit
tee has been discussing the matter
with Manager Kuykendall of the Ne
braska Lighting Co., and it is
thought a very favorable rate can
be secured for the use of the new
lights, if it should be decided to
start their use in the immediate
