How the Mexican Ball Incidents Will
Probably Terminate.
CITV OF MEXICO , May 5. [ Special Tele-
tram to the HKK. ] Senor Vercero Armecto
s tlio name of the Spanish minister who cuts
such a prominent 11 lire In the prospective
duel , lie has been minister to Mexico about
ono year. Ho escorted Miss Bazalne to a
tall Saturday night ana feels that ho must
lent to protect her good name. Senor
Noriega , the offender , has determined to lay
he trouble before the Spanish government ,
and is'collcctlnu material to take to Madrid
with the view to have the minister recalled.
The trouble at the bait ls only one ot
a series of crlevancos , Noriega's friends
claim. They cttu particularly the minister's
course In Introducing Hull Fighter Ma/.zan-
tlnl Into Mexican boclal circles and making
of him a social lion ns an Imposition on Mex-
can hospitality. An attempt Is being inado
o have the minister expelled from the club.
: n the meantime the Englishman , Uarrou , Is
mpatlcntly nwaltlng for Noriega's clial-
ungo , as ho slapped tlio Spaniard In the ca
sino room when the latter accused him of
undue liberties with Mlsa Uazalno. Noriega
was on the reception committee , and his
caution to Uarron about his style of danclne
s defended on the score of his ofllclal posl-
tonr A frreat deal of sympathy Is expressed
for Miss Uazalno on account ot the notoriety
nho received from the aifalr.
It Is rumored this evening that Senor
Xorloga has refuged to light the Spanish
minister , Senor Vercero Armesto , but will
lie phiuRos against him In Madrid. Noriega
lias , however , made arrangements to tight
ICusto Co' Harron , the young man wlu > was
Jtiss Bazalne's partner In the alleged can
can. A mooting at the Spanish casino has
been called for Saturday night , when there
will ho a discussion ot the incident. Those
who side with Noriega say they will not ston
tlio war on the Spanish minister until he is
recalled to Spain. The trouble at the ball ,
they claim , Is only ono of several grievances
against Armesto.

out to-day , ns far as their employment
by the master painters Is concerned.
The Umulia assembly of those workmen
adopted n scale of prices and hours of

master painters with the expectation that
t would bo adopted. The portion of it
applying to the paper hangers wns to go
nto operation on April 15. mid that ap
plying to painters on May 1. When
April 15 arrived the Master Painters asso
ciation refused to comply with the scale
nlYectinj * the painters. The latter , being
inwilling to create a break if it could
jo avoided , awaited until the date for
ho adoption or rejection of the paper
langers' scale. This arrived and the
master painters took the name action
htiy had before.
A committee from the assembly waited
ipon the master painters yesterday and
lotilied them that it was desirable that a
conference should bo arranged. The
uaster painters held a meeting last oven-
ng to which the committee wont. The
nembers of the committee claim that
, hey were discourteously received. They
were neither asked to sit down nor given
civil attention. After they had stated
their case they were told to go out and
wait fifteen minutes.
This treatment , they say , was so pal
pably offensive that without waiting the
specified time outside the door they re
turned to the place whore the assembly
was in session and reported. W hilo tlioy
were engaged in deliberation the follow
ing communication was received :
OMAHA , May 5. 1887. f
io the Committee ol Painters and Paper
II angers :
The master painters of the city of Omaha
this day assembled In meeting have decided
by unanimous vote to not concede to the
prices and regulations as submitted by your
committee. Very respectfully ,
A reply was formulated to this and
sent to the master painters. The reply
in substance asked what the latter would
agree to. The messenger , however , did
not reach the place of meeting of the as
sociation until after it was closed , and
all of the master painters were gone. In
consequence all of the workmen will bo
ordered out to-day ji
The committee if rom the paper hang
ers and painters state that the scale of
prices which was adopted and scut to the
master painters isplou-ur than that in
force in Kansas City , where they claim
living is less expensive. They have
sovpral other grievances , not the least of
which 4s that tlidjmaster painters have
adopted a blaek-lUtsystem. When an em
ploye is discharged/ is given a card ,
and while , without it , he can obtain no
work from any : ether master painter ,
there are occasions when it , of itself ,
prevents him fr6ni obtaining employ
ment. The card' , Js in cipher , and the
master painter punches it in a certain
way which is onl.y. intelligible to other
masters. It Is claimed by the employers
that this punching is for the purpose of
designating incompetent workmen ; but
.the committee of the assembly allege
that the punches also indicate whether a
man has over been active in connection
with labor movements. In other words ,
the effect of the system in to enable the
employers to blacklist a man if they so

evening at 8 o'clock. A full attendance Is
required. Mr. Powderly will be hero and
speak at the exposition building Saturday
evening , May 7.
Mr. Powdorly's presence at the exposi
tion building will undoubtedly ca'l ' forth
a very largo audience. This is his first
visit to Omaha , and the many stirring
evdnts which have occurred during the
past year will make his speech very in
teresting. _
The Brick Molrtors' Strike.
The brick molders gathered 108 strong
al Spoerlo'a park last night , every inol-
dcr in this city and Soutli Omaha being
present. The mooting was of much in
terest. A resolution was unanimously
adopted that no concession should bo
made from the demand for $3 for 0,000
bricks , and that the molders should stay
out until this is paid.
The published statement of the dis
agreement , in yesterday's BEE , , was not
correct. The molders , only , are striking
for an advance from $ 'J.50 to ? 3. The un
divided sentiment last night was that no
one should uo to work for less than ? ; ) per
The secretary of the brickmolders'
union states that the following yards are
already paying f 3 : G. IJ. Rlcklin & Son ,
Conuhan & Hyan , Thomas. Younger ,
Mardtis & Flagg , T. Mitchell , H. Hop-
pels , Hans Hanson , Swousonsftr's , and
Cooper & Co. These yards employ thirty
molders. It is clamed that the above
named uroprietorsiotyards will stand by
the union in its demand , as they would
naturally do. e '
The molders are quite indignant over
some of the statements made by Mr.
Frank Balloy , the brickmiu-or of this
city , which are given below. They claim
that molding is a trade and cannot bo
picked up by any ono in throe months
or a much longer Hirrto , and that then
only a comjftiralively few men have the
peculiar endurance ; necessary to stand
the hard work. Ilie price given by
Mr. Bailey they claim .to bo too low , as no
good brick can bo bought for less than
$10 , and most of itfsolls at $11 and $13.
One molder stated last evening that ho
would agree to tyvj all the brick Mr.
Bailey would sell hipijlor f 9. As to the
capabilities of the owners of the yards to
got molders they profess to feel no un
easiness , because they claim the men
cannot bo obtained. They disclaim hav
ing anything to do with the reported dis
turbance at Frank Bailey's yards yester
day , and state that it was caused entirely
by a lot of boys who had been working
elsewhere ns oll'boarere.
The secretary of the union states that
the $3 demand is the ultimatum , and thai
before the moldora would yield they will
go at work at something else.
Mr. F. K. old , and orominonl
manufacturer of brick in the city , was
Been by a reporter for the Bi : *
yesterday morning and askct !
regarding the trouble. Ho salt
there was no just cause for the strike
and that the manufacturers would nvvei
concede to the demands of the men.- The
moulding of oriok , he added , was really
not a skilled work and any sharp laborer
could pick it up in three months. Ilonco
he di'omod $ ' , ' .50 per 0,000 , brick high
pay. llrick wheclurs were getting $2.00
pur day and they would not exchange
places. Mr. Bailey said that the state
ment that brick was selling for $13 was
false. The price was $3 per thousand
nnd builders who made their own brick
could set them in tlio walls for f 10. it
was the opinion/ ) ! nil the brick-makers
in the city that it a concession was
made at this lime without any just cause
there would bo more asked in
the near future. Ho said there were
plenty of man who wore willing
to go to work at the old price , but the
ring loaders would not permit them.
Some of the manufacture Intended to
got now men and proceed with their
work , at the same time protecting their
employes at all hazards.
Vosturday afternoon a number of tlio
atrjkura attacked the moulders in Frank
Bailey's yard south of the Sixteenth
strotit viaduct. Brick bats , stones , etc , ,
\vero used and a lively time was pro
mised. The police were notified and the
strikers dispersed.
On Wednesday the manufacturer. * held
a meeting and the following agreement ,
which will undoubtedly be signed by all
the yard owners was entered into :
OMAHA , May 4,1887.

Congratulating Some of the Victors
In the tiato Election.
Tlio southern part of the city did itself
proud last night by a public congratula
tion of the gentlemen who were
chosen for city oflices in that section dur
ing the late election. Those were John
Rush , city treasurer , and Messrs. Hascall ,
Leo and Van Camp , aldermen at large.
The pleasant exercises took place at Cos
mopolitan hall , on Thirteenth street ,
and were attended not only by several
hundred residents of the southern portion
tion of the city , but by many members ol
the present city council and several
prominent citizens. The A. O. It. band
was engaged , and before the entertain
ment took place in the hall
rendered several selections in the
best style of this well-known
musical organization. The proceedings
were opened by James Brennan , who
nominated Michael Donnavan chairman.
In accepting the tendered position the
latter stated it was a meeting , irrespect
ive of party , to congratulate their neigh
bors who had been successful candidates
in the late municipal election. Ho paid
a high tribute to each of the gentlemen
in whose honor tno meeting was held.
Mr. Uush was the first callea upon and
ho made a very eloquent speech , paying
particular attention to the slanderous
attack made by the Herald upon him
during the late campaign , lie pro
nounced it false , malicious and veno
mous , and said what astonished him
most of all was that when the charge :
wore proven false the editor of the Her'
aid did not have the manliness to re
tract the libol. Altogether he
thought this newspaper assault
had gained him votes and
he verily believed had the campaign con-
tinned a week longer he would have
doubled his majority. Mr. Rush then
dwelt at considerable length on the im
portance of the last municipal election
and his own position as an Irisli-Amcri
can citizen. In speaking of his native
land and what it demanded of him he
was eloquent to a degree that brought
repeated applause from the largo audi
ence. Reference was then made to the
republican party and among the pointed
remarks of the speaker were , "Aye , I
would rather go down ten thousand times
with James ( J. Blaine than occupy the
highest position in Cleveland's cabinet. "
Referring again to the attacks made upon
him ho dressed up Pat McArdlo and
George Crawford in sarcastic style , say
ing that the iirst real assurance
ho had of hid election was
when he heard the two worthies named
were peddling falsehoods about him
through the pot houses of the city. Mr.
Ruslrs remarks were received with much
enthusiasm , and his audience sccmc-d to
be in thorough sympathy with him when
he referred to the newspaper attacks of
the liut campaign.
Mr. Hascall followed and rnado one of
his characteristic speeches such as ho
only can mako. He declared himself
first , last and all the time for improve
ments within the limits of proper econ
omy. He would work for the whole city ,
aim notwithstanding the fact ot pressing
private business would give the greater
part of his time to tlio public welfare ,
"Yes , " said ho , "I believe in taking in
Bellevue on the south , Florence on the
north , and going out to the Big Pappil-
lion for water. "
Repeated cheers greeted Mr. Hascall'f
Alderman Lee followed in one of hi ?
neatly worded and sharp pointed
speeches. Ho , too , favored public improvement -
provemont as far as the taxpayers could
alford and homo labor could accomplish.
Ho did not bollovo in foreign workmen
who came here in summer and deserted
the place where they had made
their money during the winter. He paid
n high tribute to the porsonol and work
of the present council.
Mr. Auchmoody , deputy county clerk ,
then followed with some very amusing
references and anecdotes.
Aldurman-olect Couuseman was then
called upon and declared himself cm
phatically in favor of improvements.
Messrs. Lowry. Mercer , Bechol and
Shelly succeeded in short addresses
when oh motion of Mr. Brennar
the audience adjourned to the
lower hall of the Cosmopolitan
whore Alderman Hascall had prepared r
bounteous simply of refreshments for ali
who desired to partake of good , boartj
cheer. The mooting was an exceeding ! )
successful one , and undoubtedly was tip
predated by the gentlemen in whose
honor it was inaugurated. It was noticeable
ticeablo for the pronounced attitude
taken by the thrco aldermen elect or
the question of improvements.
Thfiy Want a ICnununt.
Messrs. Boyd and Mageatli , the formei
ono of the unsuccessful candidates foi
councilman at largo , and the latter ir
the same boat on the Seventh wan
ticket , have applied for a recount of the
vote of that ward. If sixteen more votes
could bo obtained for him , Boyd wouk
bo elected , and if tweuty-threo mor <
could be found in his favor , Magcatl
would bo among the city dads.
