Strikers Even Go So Far as to Threat
en Destruction of Property by Dy
namite Police Protection Is Con
stantly Needed
OMAHA Sept 8 The following
statement has been given out by John
N Baldwin general attorney of the
Union Pacific railroad explaining the
present strike situation from the rail
roads standpoint
The Union Pacific company is en
titled to full protection of its prop
erty and to the security of its em
ployes from insults and assaults and
to secure such protection it will call
upon the city state or federal author
ities If necessary The frequent acts
of violence must stop or decisive ac
tion will be taken
If the public knew the full details
of the many lawless and brutal acts
recently committed by the strikers
there would be less sympathy ex
pressed for them and less encourage
ment held out to them to continue
the strike Looking over the list of
assaults during the last week it is
remarkable that such a state of affairB
should be tolerated in this city and
much more remarkable that it should
bo encouraged by apparently well-
meaning citizens
Crowds of strikers and their sym
pathizers frequent the gates of the
companys yards doing what they call
picket duty Their real duty seems
to be to assault or abuse and intimi
date every workman who goes through
the gates It is their purpose as
openly expressed to create such a
reign of terror that no man will dare
work for the company No person
pretends that these pickets are acting
on their Individual responsibility It
is well known that they are placed
there by their head officers or walking
delegates and that their every act of
lawlessness is heartily approved by
the strike officials who places them
on duty around the premises of the
One of the cases is that of Michael
Cronin He has lived in Omaha for
twenty years and has worked for the
Union Pacific since 1884 From his
wages he has been able to support his
family and has saved up fully 5000
which he has invested in Omaha prop
erty He declined to quit when the
other men struck and they seized
every opportunity to abuse and intim
idate him One morning a well known
striker said to him If you keep up
this work you will be killed and if
nobobdy else will do it I will kill you
myself He was afraid to go home
that day and remained in the shops
all night In the meantime his wife
was notified that he would be killed
She was terribly frightened and in
duced him to quit work He re
mained at home then for several
weeks but finally tried to get back
to work At the Cass street gate
Strikers Millett ODonnell Boles and
several others stopped him and told
him if he went in he would be sorry
for it When he went back to town
a man with a revolver in his hand
followed him two blocks Last Mon
day he went back to work and on
Tuesday evening while leaving the
yards for home in company with
George Roach another workman they
were assaulted within 150 feet of the
gate Mr Croinin was knocked down
twice and was badly bruised The
policemen stationed near got around
too late to see who committed the
Last Monday night Henry Guin
otte one of the workmen was assault
ed by strikers up near Jefferson park
One ran up to him and asked him if
he was working in the shops He re
plied that he was and the man
knocked him down without another
word Another striker kicked him
in the back He was almost senseless
for awhile and when he tried to get
up they came back and knocked him
down again
Several days before this attack
Mr Guinottes wife went down to the
yards to see him She was stopped
at the gate and the pickets swore at
her and frightened her so that she
was afraid to go in Other ladies who
have tried to see their husbands or
tried to send word to and from the
gates have been treated in the same
manner Tney tell pitiful stories of
The World Has Progressed
Cast iron plows were introduced
about 120 years ago and much ob

Carried Off by an Eagle
An infant left asleep in Its cradle
In a field near Trieste in charge of an
older child while the mother went
on with her work elsewhere was car
ried off by an eagle A search party
discovered the eagles nest with tha
childs body already half devoured
the brutal oaths and threats dealt out
to them by the pickets
Last Friday E H Iteld one of the
workmen was stopped and assaulted
by striker Lee Harrier or Haraway
and was threatened by others On
Sunday E J Winters one of the shop
guards was caught outside the yards
and was badly beaten There are sev
eral other cases of minor assaults and
the threats recently made nbt only
promise bodily harm to Foreman Tur
tle and others but they say the new
smokestack is to be blown up with
The most recent case Is that which
occurred Wednesday night Two of
the guards named Fauver and Ish
stopped work at six oclock and left
the yards to go to their homes They
were followed by a gang of ten or
fifteen strikers and were attacked Ish
was badly beaten and was seriously
injured by having one of his eye
glasses broken and driven into his
eye Fauver escaped serious Injury
by making an active fight proving
too shifty for his cowardly assail
ants This affray occurred in open
daylight and the crowd of strikers
hung after Fauver throwing missiles
and using foul epithets until the po
lice finally appeared As is frequent
ly the case the police arrested the
first man they came to This was
Fauver and most of the assailants
hurried away to stir up more trouble
or bend their energies elsewhere
It is a curious condition of affairs
when any association of individuals
can officially blacklist a business
house or factory in this city and sta
tion men before the entrance to warn
people not to go in or to insult and
assault those who disregard their
warning In such cases it is difficult
to discriminate between the terms
blacklist and blackmail
While the insults threats and acts
of intimidation on the part of the
lawless element have been of daily
and almost hourly occurrence since
the beginning of the strike the cases
of actual violence are on the increase
during the past week indicating that
the recent declaration of the head of
ficers of the union that every energy
would now be directed to the Union
Pacific strike was no idle threat The
news that several of the most lawless
men from Rawlins and Cheyenne have
been transferred here to do picket
duty for the strikers is followed im
mediately by a number of brutal acts
on the streets and in open daylight
The police force of the city has been
too scattered to prevent these acts
and gangs of piratical fpickets swarm
up the streets and assault men whose
only offense is that they desire to
work for a living and spend their
wages in the city for the benefit of
their families
A Shrewd Swindler
M de Blowitz in the Paris Matin
tells an amusing story of how a sub
scriber to the Encyclopedia Bri
tannlca used that work He was a
professional writer of begging letters
and in them he represented himself to
be now one sort of a person and then
another getting up from the pages
of his encyclopedia the necessary his
torical knowledge to give his letters
plausibility Ttius he explained that
having written a letter in which ha
was a potter who had been chemically
poisoned and unfitted for work he
used the encyclopedia for details of
his pottery trade of which he himself
was entirely ignorant The one word
kaolin which he used in his letters
and the explanation of the use of the
material made every one believe in
the genuineness of his appeal and
brought him a perfect harvest of bank
notes and postal money orders

Observations of His Trip In the West
Thinks the Price of Beef Will Go
Down Abundance of Grass in the
WASHINGTON Sept 13 Secretary
Wilson who has returned from a trip
through the west summarized the
agricultural condition in the states- he
visited These states included Ne
braska Illinois Indiana and Ohio He
said there was a great abundance of
crops generally in that region
There will be a good corn crop
he said Corn now is substantially
out of the way of the frost
The corn crops in parts of Kansas
Nebraska and Indiana are probably
the finest on record There has been
more hundreds of millions of dollars
depending on the ripening of this crop
this year than the ordinary person
has ever realized
While the crop is a little late any
danger of its failure can now be con
sidered over The crop is a good one
While it may not be a record breaker
the quality of the corn is splendid
and with the exception of the southern
states the yield per acre is very
heavy In the south the drouth has
somewhat affected the corn crop
Tlhe wheat crop of the west this
year is also very fine and what may
be considered as really the most im
portant crop of all the grass crop
is exceedingly good
The census tells us there has been
a great increase during the last ten
years in the number of cattle in the
United States This information
taken together with the fine crop of
grass insures lower prices of meat I
dont believe the price of meat how
ever will ever be as low as it has
been in the past for the simple reason
that the American people are more
prosperous than ever before and are
eating more meat than ever before
However the exceedingly high
prices of meat will be a thing of the
past as soon as the present feeders
get fattened up to a beef condition
Another thing that will tend to keep
the price of meat a little above the
former lower price is the demand of
England for our meats

pleasant trip that he had shot a great

were disagreeable to him On the

with the greatest kindness and hos

Chicago Professor Says They Are Su
perior in Intelligence
CHICAGO Sept 12 That a people
superior in intelligence to those of
the earth inhabit the planet of Mars
is a conclusion that will be set forth
by Prof G W Hough head of the de-
partment of astronomy of the North
western university in a report which
he Is compiling of his summers obser
vations from the Dearborn observa
tory He asserts this is a probability
based on recent discoveries and adds
that of course it can never bes
tablished positively
The conclusion includes the accep
tance of the theory of evolution and
the statements of leading astronomers
that climatic conditions of Mars are
the same as of the earth The possi
bility of Mercury and Venus being in
habited is admitted because theyi
have solidified and the intense heat1
resulting from their proximity to the
sun may have been overcome by a
deeper covering of atmosphere None

said could contain animal life
