A SMAI/L , AVAR.
Two nations once \yent to war over a
basket and thousands of lives were lost
and millions of money expended. This
same spirit has boon oxoinplillod on n
small bcalo at the little town of Denton ,
a few miles from Lincoln , in this
county. Two small girls became in
volved in a dispute over an insignifi
cant peg suoh as all school houbes have
upon which the children' haug their
hats and cloaks. The parents
took up the battle and at the
elohe a warrant was issued
for one of the parties , and the fun com
menced. A citizen of that village in
this city yesterday said that the lirst at
tempt of the local olllcor was unsuccess
ful , and that a pos.jo was then formed
comprising eighteen men , nil able-
bodied , who surrounded the place , and
after the battle had raged for u time the
house was stormed , and that clubs , hot
water , furniture and a shot or two wore
fired before the offender was captured.
The whole neighborhood is now await-
inp the trial.
The troubles in the Mount Zion Bap
tist church ( colored ) , of this city , had
advanced vestorday to a trial in the
county judge's olllco , whore a dark

ox-pastor of the church , Rev. Peter
Bucknor , who has boon debarred from
preaching by his flock putting a now
lock on the front door , sued the church
for back salary and cash advanced on
the church building during his admin
istration. The salary of the pas
tor was nothing extortionate on
his part , it being , according to
his testimony , lixcd at 50 cents
a month for each of tne thirty people
comprising the membership. He
claimed a great part of this meagre
salary as delinquent , uud that the church
owed him Bornu 8150 advanced on the
building. It required frequent ad
monitions of the judge during the
hearing to preserve older and decorum
in the I'ourt , and the case Into in the
day was yet iu an undecided condition.

The Reading Strike Investigation.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 11 ; The special com
mittee of the house to Investigate the Read-
lug railroad strike , examined John L. Leo ,
of Philadelphia , a sympathizer with the rail
road strikers , as the first witness this morn
In answer to questions Leo said he did not
consider thor'o was any strike on the Head
ing railroad , it was a lock out. Five crews
ho snld , refused to move cars at Port Richmond
mend , and General Superintendent Swoig-art
discharged them without giving them a
hearing. There was an agreement that no
man should be discharged except after a fair
hearing. When the superintendent refused
to reinstate men pending u hearing , a general
going out followed. Subsequently a meeting
was held at Pottsvillo and it was resolved to
effect a settlement , and witness and others
went to Philadelphia and called upon
Swcigurt and uiada arrangements to declare
the strike off. There was no written agree
ment. Swcigart was asked to put the agree
ment in writing and ho refused. Next day
Swoigart refused to live up to his agreement
and discharged representative men all along
the line. The men went out as there was
nothing else to do.
The result of Swcignrt's refusal to carry
out his ngrcoaiout was the cause of the sco-
'ond strike , or lockout. Referring to the
trouble at Ellzabethport , N. J. , witness said
it was duo to the refusal of the men to load
a boat with coal for Eckloy P. Coxc , in whoso
mines there was a strike , and the men be
lieved the Reading company was trying to
aid Coxe in his light against the strikers.
Leo said ho went to Pottsvillo and called a
Joint meeting of the labor assemblies involved
and a committee was' sent to President Cor-
bln. The lutter'offered no compromise , but
threatened punishment of the strikers If they
did not move tbo coal then on the cars. It
was held by the strikers that the Reading
company was helping the Lehlgh Coal com
pany to stand against the employes. Corbln
was asked ta bring about a settlement be
tween the company und the men. Corbin ,
together with McLcod , of the railroad and
coal company , suggested as a remedy u plan
by which the coal market would bo bulled ,
and the wages of strikers would bo mudo to
go up with the price of coal. This the
strikers refused to accept. Corbln , witness
said , did not want to bo known In thomattttr.
On cross examination witness said William
Lewis , of Columbus , O. , in charge of Dis
trict No. 13. ) , of tbo miners organization ,
could give positive uvidcnco that Ultra has
existed foe somu time a couibiuatlon between
powerful railroad cori > orations to break up
thu organi7atlon of the Knights of Labor.
At the conclusion of Leo's testimony Hugh
McGarvoyof the Lehigh tegion. took the
stand and testified that the Immediate cause
of the strike iu the Lehigh regions was that
the basis of prices was too low. Miners
would hanllvuveragu t JV ) per annum as their
earnings. Perhaps > per cent of the miners
accumulated a little money.
Mr. Stone asked if the operators had not
accumulated large fortunes. Witness re
plied that some of the wealthiest men were
in thu Lehigh region. Since the strike began
many of the miners had found work in other
regions but about 40 per cent were
still Idle. Ha knew of nonti who
were actually. starving , but tlioro
wcio many in want. Since September the
l.ilxu'oigani/atlons had distributed ( CaUOOor

cr's wages together with 2 per cent , commis
sion for mailing collections and turned it
over to the collector of taxes. This tax
amounted to as much as SS.SO for a miner. In
answer to Mr. Parker , the witness said the
Catholic miners paid their priests about 50
cents a month a piece through the company's
oftlco. At the time of the strike there were
about live thousand Hungarians , Poles and
Italians in the regions. The chairman In
quired whether the witness was paid for lec
turing for the benefit ol miners and he re
plied in the affirmative. John H. Davidson ,
a miner from Mount Carmcl , said the general
impression was that the Philadelphia & Read
ing rail road company und. the Coal and Iron
company wore under ttnj same management.
"Witness told how the operators had man
aged to reduce the wages of the miners by
gradually increasing the size of the cars , or
increasing the work by widening the breast of
coal while lowering the pay per yard. The
operators lived In luxury and had
their fast horses. Mr. Pardeo was worth
Str.OOO.OOO. Thlrty-flvo years ago he was
worth nothing. Ho had seen Lewis and an
individual operator of the William Penn
mine , quoted as saying he could not only
afford to pay the 8 per cent advance In wages
refused by the Heading company , but 45 per
cent on top of that. Adjourned.
The Pacific Railroad Committee.
WASHINGTON , Feb. 11. The senate special
Pacific railroad cotnmitteo hold a preliminary
meeting this morning and voted to enter first
upon an Investigation of Union Pacific mat
ters. It decided to'begin its .hearing Febru
ary 25 and to invite the Pacific railroad
commissioners and General Johnson , com
missioner of railroads , to appear on that day.
It will bring the commission bills before tho.
senate on Monday In order to have them
printed for use of the committee. Charles
Francis Adams , president of the Union
Pacific , was before the committee for a short
time , by invitation , and stated that the
wishes of the people ho represents were that
the questions involving their interests should
be treated in a business like way and brought
to u final settlement.
"I did not come to make any extended re
marks , for it is an old story , gone over ad
nuuscum , " said Mr. Adaius. "I will simply
refer.lho committee to the voluminous record
which exists. If you will give us time wo
arc willing and able to pay the government
and It only remains to see that the loan Is so
adjusted that wo can pay it. " Ho.hail gone
with care over the bills prepared by the com
mission and Outhwulto and had prepared a
statement showing how they would have
worked if enforced during four years of his
presidency of the Union Pacific. It was ulso
assumed that the requirements of the Outh-
walte bill had replaced those imposed by the
Thurman act. Had it ( the Outhwaito bill )
been enforced the company would have been
able to meet all its fixed charges , including
its payments to the government , and it would
have had a surplus over and above , applicable
to other , purposes , amounting to $1,000,000 or
2K per cent on the capital stock. Ho did
not think it would bo wise to pass
any bills without removing some of this re
striction , If they were passed ho would try
to show what policy the company would pur
sue. This constant agitation of the subject ,
this constant questioning by papers and con
gress , as to whether the company was honest ,
had such an injurious effect upon traffic that
it made the life of a railroad president like
that of the London policeman depicted in the
comic opera , "not a happy one. " After all
this injurious agitation and challenging of its
honesty and integrity of purpose ho was
free to say if the bill was passed
by congress based upon the general
line of the Outhwaito or commission bill
such modifications as ho should hex ] ) to sco ,
and the burden was anywhere within the
company's strength to carry , ho would do all
he could In the form of recommending to In
duce the stockholders to accept it , and ho bo-
UeveJ they would ,
Mr. Grain remarked that Huntlngton had
asked thirty days' time in which to prepare
hia proposition and inquired l > ow much time
wltnoiis wanted for that purpose.
.Mr. Adams replied thtU he would submit It
in forty-eight hours. His company was
readytund had been ready for four years.

Ho is Looking For Still Lower Freight
KANSAS CITT , Mo. , Feb. 11. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKK. } The freight war is in a
more muddled condition than heretofore and
still rages. The Burlington and St. Paul
seem to have gotten moip than they bar
gained for , as they do not now slash as freely.
The Rook Island cut from 10 cents to 0 cents
from Chicago and C > cents to Missouri river
points on lumber this morning. This was not
mot at once by the other roads , but it is un
derstood they will give the same rate , al
though posting the old. Cattle rates seem to
bo the point of concentration. At noon the
Chicago & Alton was taking stock at $30 ;
this because the St. Paul carried out fifteen
carloads at that figure last night. Swift is
holding off largo shipments , believing rates
% vill go still lower Monday.
Lumber men predict 8 cents by Monday.
