Winter Season Opens Up With Lively
Prospects for Business.
The Musicians'. Union is feeling; good
these days. With practically a "100
per cent union"' in the city, and with
three theaters going full blast, two or
three dancing academies, and univer
sity functions Just beginning, business
.is booming and the union's member
ship is kept busy. The park concert
season has closed, and its - success
gives assurance of more and longer
engagements next summer, witn an in
crease in the size of the band en

Owen Miller of St. Louis, secretary
of the international organization, has

CENTRAL LABOR UNION.
First October Meeting Will Be Held
Next Tuesday Evening. ;
The first October meeting of the
Centra Labor Union will be held at
Bruse's hall next Tuesday evening, and
some interesting matters will come be-
, fore the body. A proposition will be
made to engage in a series of open
meetings that will he social and edu-
catlonal In their character. Some in
teresting discussion on traction mat
ters will also be held.
The central body is in. a position
now to take the lead in some good
movements; and with a little more
enthusiasm It can perform good serv
ices in the cause of unionism. Every
delegate should make it a point to at
tend the meeting next Tuesday evening.
count it is contemplated to take up a!
collection, to reimburse the state. The
plans, however, " are as yet in the
formative stage, but unless the strike
comes to a sudden termination the
petitions will be circulated. .
Governor Shallenherger has an
nounced officially he will call an extra
session for the purpose of passing a
guaranty bank deposit law should the
present law be declared void by the
federal court, providing the decision
goes into details on the weak points
of the law. This decision is looked for
within a short time, and if the gov
ernor decides to call the extra session
immediately upon the filing of the de
cision the friends of the strikers- will
request that the creation of a state
board of arbitration be included in his
cail. Omaha Bee.
WILL ASK ARBITRATION.
Will Seek Legislation Along that Line
at Extra Session.
To secure an extra session of the
legislature for the enactment of a law
providing for the creation of a state
board of arbitration is the latest 'move
contemplated by friends or sympathiz
ers of the striking street carmen.
The proposition will be submitted to
some of the strike leaders during the
day and it is contemplated to have
petitions circulated among the people
of Omaha within a short time.
Those who contemplate this move
have figured that it will cost about
$20,000 to $30,000 to hold a special
session of the legislature, and If the
governor should hesitate on that ac-
First Annual Function ' at Fraternity
Hall on October 13.
, The Glovemakers' Union of Lincoln
the only one of its kind west of Chi
cago is not afraid of the "Thirteen"
hoodoo, 1 or anything else, for that
matter.' As proof the members have
selected October 13 as the date for
their first annual ball, and Fraternity
hall has been selected as the place of
holding it. Bruse's orchestra will fur
nish the music.
The Glovemakers' Union is not a
large body numerically speaking, but
it is made up of "live ones" in the
union movement, and they may be
counted on to show their guests a
good time on the occasion of the
union's first annual ball. The tickets
are 50 cents per couple, extra lady 25
cents. A cordial invitation is extend
ed to all friends.

STREET RAILWAY MEN.
October Meeting Was Short and Lit
tle Business Transacted.
The meeting of the Typographical
Union last Sunday was a little short
er than usual, and practically noth
ing was considered except routine
business. The committee appointed
to report on matters financial did so
and made a few recommendations.
They were taken under advisement
and will be acted upon at the Novem
"Doc" RIghter returned from his
Chicago visit the first of the week.
He failed to bring the Masonic Tem

Will Meet This Evening to Transact
t .-- Some Important Business.
The street railway men will hold
their regular semi-monthly meeting
at Bruse's hall this Saturday) even
ing, beginning promptly at midnight.
Business of Importance will come be
fore the association, among other
things being the consideration of the
case of - a former official who is
charged with being recreant to a
trust reposed in him. It is rumored
that this former official la now "scab
bing" in Omaha, although the report
has not yet been verified.
An international officer will prob
ably be present to confer with the
members about certain matters, and
every one should be present to listen
and take a part. Former Secretary
Damewood left Monday for Phillips
county, Colo., where he has some real
estate business to transact. He will
probably engage in business in that
section of the country. The local or
ganization is not at all alarmed about
the rumored collapse of the strike
in Omaha. They are being kept
posted on a lot of matters that are
not being given to the general pub
lic. A street car strike is not al
ways lost when the service is prac
vest the money on hand in real ' es
tate right away, and with that end
in view a committee is chasing
around looking for the right place.
A suitable building is in view, and
an effort is being made to arrange
terms for its purchase. If the nego
tiations go through it will be up to
the unionists of Lincoln to get busy
and pay out, or stand to lose what
has already been paid in and pledged.
The directors will meet again Mon
day evening, and every' Monday even
ing hereafter until further notice, at
Chaplin & Ryan's barber, shop on
North Twelfth street.
