viome outstate editor indites a para
graph on the ingratitude of politics.
Uaii a. Uutler, he points out, started
a municipal coal yard in Omaha and
then showed Charles V. Bryan, who
is a city commissioner in Lincoln,
how to operate one there. Instead
of pulling his coal wagon over to
the side of the road and letting Mr,
Butler drive on toward the governor
ship. Mr. Bryan whipped up his owu
team and hogged the road.
Mr. Butler sits in his office in the
city hall reading indignant letters and
telegrams, and answering telephone
calls from sympathetic and angry
. supporters and receiving visitors, all
of whom wish to discuss the subject
. of democratic harmony. AH because
of the efforts to unite wet and dry
democrats, in a drive to elect Hitch
cock senator and Bryan eovernor.
. "From the way people talk out in
the state, Hitchcock is hurting him'
self," Mr. Uutler said. It he is
not tied up with Bryan he ought
to issue a statement to that effect
over his own signature.
Those harmony clubs that are an
nounced in so many towns, have
drawn up a slate which does not in
clude Mr. Butler. His friends say
that several men whose- names were
given as attending the harmony club
meeting in Omaha were not present
and do not approve of the plan. Peter
Stafford, a democratic leader of Nor
folk, has telegraphed Mr. Butler that
in spite of the announcement in Sen
ator Hitchcock's paper of a meeting,
no harmony club was organized
there. ' ,
"If the leaders are to get together
nd pick candidate?, let's go back
to the convention system," Mr. But
Jr suggests. "The people of Ne
braska are able to think for them
selves, and do not need Hitchcock or-
Bryan to make up their minds tor
them. This to-called harmony move
ment is in violation of the whole spir
it of the primary system. In one
breath Bryan praises the ' primary
while in the next he violates it."
"I haven't said anything against
Hitchcock as yet, but from the way
people talk, he is hurting himself."
Details such as these should not

Mr. Butler's platform. Reminded of
this, he readily explained his stand.

governor is to repeal the code bill."

and one way to do this is to fire

Mr. Butler spoke of the fact that
sometime two or more inspectors

that their duties might well be com
plied. The possibilities of a situa
tion in which a school inspector would
also examine the scales of the local
elevator, check up the state bank,
and act as hotel, dairy, food and
road inspector come to mind, but
one does not interrupt Mr. -Butler.
"The next things I would do," he
continues, "is to abolish Gus Hyers'

Expects 2 to 1 Vote.
Quite generally about Nebraska
wet democrats incline toward Dan
Butler for governor. He has other
strength, of course, and he expects
td poll a two-to-one vote over his
opponents in the party primary. In
Fillmore county, for. instance, there
is strong sentiment for him among
the democrats. "Bat" Koehler, well
known as a Hitchcock leader, takes
the position that there can really be
no truth in the reported Bryan alli
ance, and he is for Butler. A major
ity of 1,500 in Platte county is pre
, dieted by M Butler in answer to
the recent Harmony club meeting
that left him off the slate.
"As far as the wet and dry issue
is concerned, that is settled," Mr.
Butler said yesterday. 1 "I am for
strict enforcement of the law. When

Washington, July 12. President Harding last
night issued the following proclamation :
Whereas, The United States railroad labor board
is an agency of the government, created by lav and
charged with the duty of adjusting disputes between
railroad operators and employes engaged in interstate
Whereas, The United States railroad labor board
has recently handed down decisions, one affecting the
wage of the shopcraft employes, the other declaring the
contract system of shopcraft work with outside agencies
to be contrary to the intent of the transportation act,
and, therefore, that such practice must be discontinued;
Whereas, The shopcraft employes have elected to
discontinue their work, rather than abide by the de-
cisfon rendered, and certain operators have ignored the
decision ordering the abandonment of the contract shop
practice ; and,
Whereas, The maintained operation of the rail
' roads in interstate commerce and the transportation of
United States mails have necessitated the employment
of men who choose to accept employment under the
terms of the decision and who have the same indisput
able right to the work that others have to decline to
Whereas, The peaceful settlement of controversies
in accordance with law and due respect for the estab
lished agencies of such settlement are essential to the
security and well-being of our people ; now,
Therefore, I, Warren G. Harding, president of the
United States, do hereby make prociamation, directing
all persons to refrain from all interference with the law
ful efforts to maintain interstate transportation and the
carrying of the United States mails.
These activities and the maintained supremacy of
the law are the first obligation of the government and
all the citizenship of our country. Therefore, I invite
the co-operation of all public authorities, state and mu
nicipal, and the aid of all good citizens to uphold the-'
laws and to preserve the public peace, and to facilitate
those operations in safety which are essential to life
and liberty, and th security of property and our com

Sir Philip said he would, consult
his colleagues as to whether any
good could be served by a fuhther
meeting of the subcommission on

because they declined to make any
promises concerning compensation.
M. Litvonoff declared that Sir Philip

non-Russian representatives -had in
sisted upon beginning work just
where the Genoa conference began

With Board Ruling,
Burlington General Manager
Replies to Havelock Peti
tion Against Hiring
In a reply to a petition circulated
in Havelock against the- hiring- of
new men to take the place of strik
ing, shopmen in Havelock railroad
shops, signed by. many residents of
Havelock, W. F. Thiehoff, general
manager of Burlington lines west,
has sent a letter to C. C. Pinkerton,
city clerk of Havelock.
Mr. Thiehoff, in his letter, calls
attention to the fact that "as a rail
road we have complied not only with
the decision of the labor board in
reducing rates of pay of employes,
but with the orders and decisions of
the Interstate Commerce commis
sion in reducing' rates."
The shopmen who failed to return
before July 10 and thus retain their
seniomy rights and pension privi
leges have "voluntarily removed
themselves permanently from the
service of the Burlington railroad and
we are now employing mechanics to
equip our roundhouses and shops to
their tull capacity in order to con
tinue to' perform service to the cub'
lie that we are obligated to perform
as a railroad, says Mr. Thiehoff.
"As taxpayers and citizens the en
ployes of the Chicago, Burlington

the moral and physical protection re
suiting from the enforcement of ex
isting laws, and I make formal re
quest through you as city clerk on

Executives Declare Issue Not
One for Connideration Be
tween Carriers and Rep
resentatives of Unions.
Up to U. S. Labor Board
Chicago, July 12. (By A. P.)-A
flat refusal to meet with D. M. f
Jewell, head of the striking shopmen,
to discuss peace proposals was the
answer of railway executives to a
proposal made by Ben W. Hooper,
chairman of the United States rail
road labor board.
In a letter addressed to Mr. Hoop
er, the executives declared that
"the-issue raised is not for considera
tion between the carriers and the
representatives of the organized
crafts on strike, except through the
further orderly processes before the
United States railroad labor board."
Asserting that . the strike was a
refusal to accept the decision of the
labor board, the letter declared that
no conference contingent on .the
abandonment of the decision of the
board was "permissible or tenable,
because it would place the carriers
participating therein in apparent co- -operation
wjth those on strike in
seeking to find measures to subvert
the decision of the labor board."
Suggest Recall of Strike.
The letter added, however, that
"a prompt recall of the strike order
would permit the resumption of for
mer methods of conference and per
mit the consideration of any mat
ters which representatives of em
ployes might desire to submit."
The letter, which was signed by
Samuel M. Felton, president of the
Chicago & Great Western railway,
L. F. Loree of the Delaware & Hud
son; B. F. Bush of the Missouri Pa
cific, and Whiteford R. Cole of the
Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis,
follows in full:
"Replying to your inquiry to
Messrs. Bush, Cole, Loree and Fel
ton 6n the occasion of your call this
morning, we beg to say that while .
we, as chairmen of conference com
mittees relating to railroad matters
in the several sections of the coun
try, are without authority to speak
for individual companies,' we have no
reason to believe that a meeting be
tween the railroad - companies and
representatives of the striking men
can be arranged under present con
ditions. All Parties Heard.
"This strike is a refusal to accept
the results of the arbitration of the
United States railroad labor board
pursuant to law, after exhaustive
hearings in which all parties con
cerned were fully heard. On June
30, last, the board, of which you are
chairman, called a public hearing by
citation to the proper representatives
of carriers and organizations named
in the order of the board for the
purpose of an inquiry initiated by the
board under section 313 of the trans
portation act of 1920.
"Notwithstanding the full response
by carriers to this citation, repre
sentatives of the organiaztions, mem
bers of which are now on strike,-re-v
fused to attend and persisted in their
refusal to do so and thereby aid the
board in the performance of its pub
lic duty irf the further inquiry into
the circumstances relating to the
strike then threatened.
"After respectful consideration of
your inquiry the conclusion seems
necessarily to follow because of the
'strike thereafter called in defiance
of the decision and order of the
United States railroad labor board
decision No. 1036 and the control
ling act of the transportation act,
that the rfssue thus raised is not one
for consideration between the car
riers and representatives of the
organized crafts on strike, except
through the further orderly pro
cesses before the United States rail
road labor board as contemplated by
the transportation act."
"This conclusion is confirmed by
the statements which have appeared
in the public press to the effect that
these representatives are only willing
to abandon this strike and return to
service on the condition that thev
be relieved from acceptance of ma
ture decision, of the labor board in
the case referred to. No conference
for that purpose is, in our judgment,
permissible nor tenable, because
ii would place the carriers participat
ing" herein in apparent co-operation
with those on strike in seeking to
find the means to subvert "the de
cision of the labor board.
"On the other hand, a prompt re
call of the sjrike order would per
mit the rtstimption of former meth
ods of conference' and permit the
consideration of any matters which
representatives of employes might
desire to submit.
"In closing we should add in ad
dition, however, that, we have no
reason to doubt the prompt response
by the carriers of the country to
any summons by the United States
railroad labor board to anv further
hearing that may be called in con
nection with this subject in the
event the board should determine
upon that course."
