troversy and representatives of the al
lied trades in an attempt ia bring
about a peaceable adjustment of this
second strike was unsuccessful, and
the meeting was adjourned wfth the
understanding that another conference
would be held Saturday morning at
8 o'clock.
At the conference, which lasted
five hours, a committee consisting of
five representatives of the packers ana
five representatives of the butchers
union, was appointed to go over the
whole situation, but the committee
was unable to reach a working ba
sis with which both sides would be
satisfied. Whether the difficulty can
be satisfactorily settled Jat Saturday's
meeting is problematical.

negotiations had failed, but still has

that there would be no discrimination

organization in good faith. On the
return of the men this morning they
were lined up like cattle. The fore
men and superintendents wouftl walk
through the line and pick out a man
and say: 'You come up.' The next
man would be pushed out of line and
told that he could not be acrive. It
was always the active unio men
whom they could not use. We un
derstood the agreement perfectly and
the strike was only called alter the
packers had violated the same. This
has been their system in the past and
that was our main reason for insisting
on the time limit in the agreement,
but in spite of this the packers' in
tentions were to hire only sucn men

Mayor Harrison Would Open the Dem
ocratic Campaign in Chicago.
ESOPUS, N. Y. Esopua took on a
new atmosphere Tuesday with the ar
rival of the first train bringing New
York newspapers. The conference of
New York democrats held last night
at the Hoffman house was tne subject'
of the keenest interest, even to the
villages, who hitherto have been con
tent in the knowledge of Judge Par
ker's nomination, without bothering
about any of the details or gossip con
nected with his campaign. The judge
himself showed an Interest beyond his
usual calm, and at breakfast read the
newspaper accounts of the conference
with close attention, but, as usual,
without any comment which could
reach newspaper men.
A report is current that there will be
an effort to get the judge to begin his
active campaign in the middle west
with a speech at Chicago soon after
the notification ceremonies. It is un
derstood that Mayor Carter H. Harri-
son of Chicago is anxious not only to
have the first gun of the campaign
fired in Chicago, but to have Judge
Parker and William J. Bryan on the
platform together upon that occasion.
Of course, nothing definite on that
subject can be learned here, for Judge
Parker absolutely refused to discuss
bis plans previous to his notification.
So far as the notification is concern
ed, it will be held at Rosement. Judge
Parker intends to remain here
throughout the campaign, save per
haps for two or three absences to
make speeches in large cities such as
Chicago, Philadelphia and New York
and possibly Boston.

At 9 o'clock in the morning part of
the Russian fleet moved to the en

Diana. The Japanese vessels retired.
At 5 o'clock in the afternoon several
torpedo boats again approached Port
Arthur. The cruiser Novik, with an
escort of torpedo boats, advanced
and the enemy retired the second
During the night of the 10th six
teen Japanese torpedo boats formed
for attack. They were, however, dis
covered by the searchlights and re
tired under a heavy fire from the
forts. At a later hour that same
night a single torpedo boat made for
the entrance of the harbor at full
speed, but also retired under fire. The
whitehead torpedoes which had failed
to reach the cruisers at which they
had been discharged by the Japanese
were found at the entrance of the har
bor. On July 11 the Japanese fire from
the sea stopped and the Japanese as
cended Kinsan heights, from the sum
mit of which rapid fire guns were
used against the Russians. During
the evening of the 11th the Russian
batteries sent many shells from three
posititons against the Japanese on
these heights. Later the Russian re
serve, accompanied by bands of mu
sic, began to move toward Ludsigdao.
The fire on the heights was very ef
fective. News was received from Ta Tohe

broken through the Russian left flank
between Lieutenant General Count
Keller's position and that of General
Rennenkampff, and that they were
marching on Mukden. The rumors to
this effect are persistent, but there
is no official confirmation of them.

Work Will Commence With Many
Counties Yet to Report.
LINCOLN. Owing to the delay of
county officials in getting their as
sessment reports the state board of
equalization will go to work with
many counties still missing. The
sessions will have to be of the stren
uous order if the law Is complied with
for the reason that the statutes re
quire the report of the board to be
certified out to the counties by the
first Monday in August, which this
year is August 1. This leaves less
than two weeks for the board to com
plete its work, and the task will be
a hard one.
Numerous reports have begun to
come in from various counties to the
effect that a mighty roar is going to
come in because property has been
assessed too high, and other reports
are to the effect that the railroads
are going out of their way to com
pel the board to raise the farmers
out of all proportion to what they
have been raised over last year.
Whether the fanner will leave his
wheat field and come in to plead his
case has not been announced, but con
stant rumor has it that the railroads
are loaded to the brim with figures
and probable threats that they intend
to unload for the edification of the
board that the people of the state
may still be taxed out of all propor
tion to the railraods.
For some reason it seems to be the
general opinion that the board will
use the valuation placed on railroad
property as a baste upon which to fix
the valuation of the different counties,
but no member of the board will ad
mit that such is the case. The board
doesn't seem to know how It will pro
ceed, though it Is probable that the
first thing on the program will be to
listen to protests. From Douglas coun
ty comes the report that the rail
roads are very anxious that the peo
ple there be put on the defensive, and
it is common talk that they will try
to show the board that it is a shame
the way Douglas county is beating
the state out of taxes. This because
citizens of Douglas county are large
ly responsible for the late increase hi
the value of railroads.
Elaborate Festivities Enjoyed at Ar

the party were in a jolly mood. All
were the personal friends of the new

were made.

Teamsters as Well as Butchers Will
Make Another Effort to Bring About
Adjustment, They Also Having
Voted in Favor of a Strike.
CHICAGO Determined on a fight
to a finish to enforce the demands of
the striking butchers, a sympathetic
strike of all the union workmen em
ployed in the meat packing industry
throughout the country, with the ex
ception of the teamsters, will be de
clared Monday morning at 7 o'clock.
Instead of joining in the sympathet
ic strike, the teamsters will make an
other effort to bring about an adjust
ment of the controversy by arbitra
tion. This decision was reached late
Sunday night at a meeting of the joint
council of the teamsters' unions
throughout Chicago, who met to give
their endorsement this afternoon to
quit work with the other men. The
decision of the stock yards teamsters
was almost unanimous it. favor of
striking, but as it is necessary, accord
ing to the rules, for the joint council
to sanction any strike movement, all
the union teamsters in the employ of
the packers will remain at work dur
ing the struggle or until the joint
council gives their permission to a
strike should their efforts to settle the
matter by conciliation today prove fu
tile. The committee appointed at last
night's meeting was notified to get
Into communication Monday morning
early with the packers.
Whether the teamsters' efforts for
peace will prove successful none of
the packers representatives who were
communicated with Sunday will say.
The decision to make another effort
wis reached at such a late hour last
night that it was impossible for the
packers to get together to decide
what answer will be given to the in
termediary committee.
The reason given by the teamsters
council for their action is that they
never before have been consulted in
the present trouble.. and that therefore
before they would sanction a strike
of the stock yards teamsters they
wished to make an official investiga
tion of the trouble before asking the
international officers to order the men
on strike.
No conferences were held Sunday
either by the packers or the labor
leaders, or jointly, in an effort to
reach an adjustment of the controver
sy. Both sides rested, apparently
Waiting for developments.
' Whether or not the packers would
make any concessions to the demands
of the labor leaders in order to pre
vent a general walkout of the stock
yards would not be discussed by any
of the packing house representatives.
But for the preparations going on at
tho different plants during the day it
was plainly evident that the packers
intended to fight for their independ
ence. All the labor leaders claimed
they would await Monday before doing
any further, and the packers would
have to make the propositions for the
peace negotiations, as the unions had
no intention at the present time of
doing so.

In Val dl Rosa, Italy, the serpent Is
a traditional terror, and the place Is

On Ascension day the priest solemn

Monto Bruno. The mountaineers be

A Prosy Poem.
A rustic youth, with laughing eye,
sat on a rail fence munching pie. A
lop-eared mule, with a paint-brush
tall, near by on clover did regale.
A humble bee came buzzing along,
and paused to sing the mule a song;
but the mule for music had no ear,
so his heels flew up in the atmosphere
and over the top of a cherry tree
the boy soared on to eternity.
