Reported Meeting of Railroad
Managers in Omaha in Re
sponse to His Request ,
What It Means.
It is authentically repcr'.ed that
meeting of the railroad mangers o
the pool lines will be he'd during th
coming week to confer with Sidney
Dillon , president of the Union Pacific
in regard to matters of interest com
mon to all the roads centering in ou
Several of the managers , amen
whom are Mr. Perkins , of tbe C. , B
& Q. , have already telegraphed thei
acceptance of the invitation , and it i
believed that most , if not all of th
parties invite. ] , will be present. It i
understood that Mr. Dillon will make
a number of proposition ) relative to
the distribution of freight ca-tward
ani will usa his utmost endeavor * to
press the claims oi. the Wabash. St.
Louis and Pacific road as a competitor
for both passenger and freight traffic.
It is further reported that Goulc
hai been buying heavily recently in
the stock of the above mentioned
road , and adding to his already pre
ponderating influence which ha con
siders to ba especially [ rotnisiog
zs en investment all the influence ol
the Union Pacific will to thrown in
the scales to force upon the pool lines
a fair and equitable division of prpfits
with Ihe Wabash , and Mr. Dillon Is
said to be acting as the agent aud
tactolum of Mr. Gould in the premises.
The rumor th&t tbe Alton line will
build to our city h pooh-poohed by
the pool officials. They pietend that
the diviJoi profits , if tbo WabaUi ia
let in , will riot suffice to remunerate
thi reads with an additional compel !
tor , and astert that they have information
mation that the Alton line has no in
tention of complicating the pool prob
lem. Outside parties who know of
what they talk , aiaert , however , that
the prospects of the Alton's coming
into Omiha are by no means alight ,
aud the idea of another competitor
for freight and passenger traffic is
causing some concern among the other

Conference With the Bohem
A meeting of the striking smelters
washeld on the bottomnoar thesmelt-
ing works yesterday afternoon. There
were between 300 and 400 men pres
ent , including besides tbo strikers
men of every trade , particularly those
employed in the U. P. shops.
The meeting was called to order a1
3:45 : o'clock by James Thompsonchair
man of the executive committee of th
strikew , who nominated H. P. Her
ran for chairman , and ho was elec'.oi
Mr. Horran made a few remarks and
a sured his hearers that he was fullt
in sympathy with the movement , al
though not one of their number.
James Murphy , president of the
Workingmen's union , was loudly call
ed for and imde a capital speech , ful
of. good cheer and hope to the striker
saying that they were all brothers , n
matter what their nationality or creed
He had always been a workingman
and in common with every working
nnn in the country , wanted to see
th's strike succeed , as its result
would affect labor everywhere. Hi
said that he had as good a right t <
come there and say kind word * to
them , as Dr. Miller had to fill The
Herald full of abuse. The Herald
was the organ of capitalists , and had
been true to its hire , misrepresented
Che condition of the strikers , striv
ing to make them appear odious in the
eyes of the people , and laboring to
raise dissensions in their ranks. He
was especially severe upon that paper
and other organs of capital He re
viewed the progress of the strike from
the beginning , and said that every Iv
boring man in the city would give
them all the aid that they possibly
could. Ho noted the instance of one
laboring nun , who , ata meeting held
Saturday night , pledged $1 per day ol
his wages as long as the strike contin
ued , aud gave an order for $10 to con
tribute to the support of the strikers.
Although all could not afford to do
hat , yet each would do as much as he
could. His speech was listened to
with great attention and was frequent
Air. Rosicky was called for and
stepped f jrward. Ho first stated in
English , that he understood he was
calkd to speak to his Bohemian friends
and listed for patience of those , who
would not understand his remarks.
Ho than went on in Bohemian saying ,
that he was called upon to attend this
meeting and explain the situation to
those , who did not understand the
English language and coud ! not com
prehend wh t was going on. There
was a meeting held on Saturday where
a vote was tases , whether the card of
the company should be accepted or
not. As ho underst pds it the meet
ing was only slightly attended , ouly
about one-third of the sinking men )
being present. When a vote was
taken it appeared , that the mjo/ity
of those present were for accepting s
the list and going to work. But that
was not considered by the strikers as
a fair expression of the majority , on
the contrary the majority of tLeir
fellow-strikers were for continuing the dt
strike until victory would be won. dm
Now the sentiment prevails , that the m
Bohemians will go to work on Monday b
racrnins almost in a body and desert ;
their fellow-workmen in tha he t cf ai
battle. By suchaction , of course , the aihi
itrika would be at an end and the hicr
irhola blame for that would be laid at
ioora of the Bohemians. This should
lot be co. Workingmen ought sh
o act in concert , no shhi
natter of what nationality they are , hi
and it would pain him if the blame
for the unsuccessful effort should be
laid at the doors of Bghe ' ; ng
them alone. Sa v | heni to
hold. out Triih the rest , whethsr it
leads to victory or defeat , and even if
hot successful , to hold on unt'l the
majority of others should decide , so
they would not bear the odium of be
ing the cauio ot defeat.
As to the strike itaelf , he thought
that it was justified. Trad , it was
the eilrcmo mtasure which he would
advieb , feut there was no sensible man
in the city of Omaha who did not
sympathize with them , and who did
not think that § 1.50 or 81.65 for the
unhealthy work they had to perform
was not enough pay ; there was no sen
sible man who believes that at these
they could live cs men should
live and ought to live ; that tbtjy cbuld
support their families and educate
their children. He understood that
efforts were made to convince the
company of the justice of their de
mand , and they struck only when all
efforts of attaining the end peaceably
failed. Now , the fact if , that wages
seven or eight jears sga were 100 per
cent , higher than now , while a'l the
commodities end necessaries of life
were not much higher than now.
Three years a o the wages were re
duced , but the workman did not object ,
bacauseall necessaries were then at
bw prices. Within the lst twelve
months everything they needed and
used went up in value , from 25 to 50
per cent , while tneir wages remain
the sime or haveincreaied but slight
ly , by far not in proportion to the in-
crerscd price of all necessasies. While
they submitted to decrease in wages
three years ago. it is no more than
rijjht that now tneir wages should be
raised to a fair living price. While
he deprecated the strike , yet he had to
advice them to stand together like
one man and c6ntlnue until their ju > t
demands should be satisfied. They
are fighting not for themselves alone ,
but all the workinginen in Omaho , A
month ago the wages of tile U. P. em
ployes wcreraised ; if their wages now
Vfetd raised , the wages of all working
people in the city would bo battered ;
if they fail , there is no hope for tome
time to come for a raise of wages
of any other class of workmen ,
who may be underpaid. This is well
understood by all workingmen in the
city and their hearts and ( hands are
with them. Empbyes from the U. P.
and other shops are making Collec
tions and if theie are any who aresuf-
fering for want of any necessities they
should call upon the committee and
they will recivesuppoit. As long as
that is tbe cue there is no need to
break ranks for the aakojof Want.
Closing , he again advised them to
stand or fall with the majority.
A lawyer of this city then made a
short speech , urging tha men to cry
out' no surrender" and to mean it.
Gorrge Hoffman was called for to
speak on buhalf of the Bohemians , but
said that Mr. Rosicky had ably
summed up the cafe for them.
A resolution wa& unanimously adopt
ed , amid much enthusiasm , declaring
; hat the strikers weuld never resume
wrk till ther demands had been grant
ed.It was vottd that all the striker j
assemble at the samep'aca between 6
and 7 o'clock this morning , after
which the meeting adjournedi
A LAWLESS LAWYER
Wm. Griffith alias John Smith
Again Lodged In Jail (
Last week a disreputable looking
bummer was aireeted in company with
a party Of tratnfs and was lodged in
the city cooler on a ctarg-3 cf being
decidedly drunk and very disorderly.
Failing to pay his fine he received ten
days Sentence , which he served out ,
and during which ho wrote several
lengthy communications to the c'ty
papers on the horrible state .of the
pritoa. Friday mtffnlng he wa §
diBcharged from custody and was sup-
pt sed to have left the town , but that
right he was again arrested and lodged
in bis old quarters on ths same charge.
Saturday morning wheuDeputyMar
shal Bon Westerdahl came to open his
celldcorho found the floor covered with
splinters , and upon examination dis
covered that the prisoner had attempt
ed during the night to cut his way out
by the aid of a common dinner knife ,
which must hava been conveyed to
him through his cell window during
the night. The tl its cf the door were
almost cut through , but even if he hsd
succee3od in making his way out of
his cell he would have found it impos
sible to have broken through the heavy
door at the end of the hall.

Saturday morning he again gave his
alias of John Smitbbut finally admitted
thathis realname was William Griffith f
and that he was an attorney ia Knox

ho probably lied in saying so. Upon

Does anybody remember the kind
of things they used to wear forty
years ago and call shirts , with stuck

badly fitted that the bosoms were all
crumpled up before you had them an
boui ? I wonder if the ancients ever
learned to make shirts , and the art
lad been forgotten , or did it take six
thousand years to learn to make a shirt
that was comfortable and would fit ?
The writer never got a shirt
of decent fit till he came to
America , and they -cost him three

jood and comfortable compared with
what he had woin ; but lately they

A Dry Article on a "v7et Subject
To tbe Editor ol Tin Bis.
The writer has just noticed the pun
gent little article of the enterprising
and public spirltsd editor of THB BBS
on that sprinkling ; -but for once he is
certainly a little "ouet" He says"If
the business men wcull organise , a
street sprinkling wsoc'a'ion ' , tney
would soon get rid of the nuisance. "
Who does he mean by theliusiness
men ? The writer knows none in a
we.tom town who are not businessmen
mon , but the old and infirm. If b *
means the retailers and jobber he
might as well ask them to pave the
streets or build the common sewers ,
which are not of ha'f ' tbe importance to
the publio health compared with the
cost , that street sprinklers is : Why
don't he ask the businessmen to clean
the alleys. See this cutting from The
Nonpariel , of Council Blufls :
"It is reported that in many of the
alleys of the city , lar e piles of man
ure and other rubbish has been depos
ited in violation of the ordinances and
ti the * detrlBent of the health and
tafety of th | ily. All ocoupan's ' and
owners of lota abutting upon any of
the alleys within the city , are hereby
no'tified to remove all manure , filth i
