NO BRICK WORK ON BUILDINGS.

The Urlcklnycrs "Out. "
In the conferences held between the brick
contractors and the bricklayers the Inttcr
gave the former to understand Unit on nnd
fitter yesterday they would.cx poet to bo paid
H.M for eight hours' work. They had up to
last Saturday night been working at the rate
ofM.&O for nine hours. On last Saturday
night they gave their employers to under
stand that they would not resuino labor unless
at the now rate , and ho far as could he ascer
tained worn told by the con
tractors , with possibly one exception ,
that they need not come arounu yesterday
morning. The bricklayers complied witii
the admonition , and as n consequence ,
there was not n brick laid yesterday on any
building on which up to Saturday night
bricklayers had been engaged. Mr. Sheeley ,
In order to finish a contract , had some brick' '
layers at work on his building on the cornet
'of Howard nnd Fifteenth streets Sunday ,
But thelmcn did not appear yesterday. Wdrk
on the Y. M. O. A. building was also discon
tinued , and the services of liftecn men whc
had been working for Norcoss Uros. on the
New York I lfe insurance company's build
Ing were also dispensed with. Several men
Who were occupied on the Harris fc Fisher
building on the corner of Eighteenth and
Nicholas street also failed to return
turn for work. The only exception
learned was that of Contractors
Hughes & Hrcnnan , who arc building the
Mercy convent on the corner of Fifteenth
and Ciwtellnr streets. It was reported bj
members of the bricklayer's union that these.
bosses had expressed it determination to pay
the wages demanded. No work , however ,
was done on the structure , because little
could bo done at best before evening because
of the time which would bo required to clean
the walls of snow and then heat the water
for the work. It is probable that work will
bo resumed at the new rates to-day if the
A HEC reporter , yesterday met several
of the contractors and obtained froir
them a variety of views concerniiif
the situation. They nil claimed they
would not acccdo to the demand ol
the bricklayes , because they were
unreasonable and unjust. This they claitr
was shown to ttio journeymen by a consider-
nto committed , consisting of Messrs. IJailcy ,
Llvescy and Johnson , who had been ap
pointed to confer with them. The con
tractors , however , claimed they had no ani
mosity toward the Journeymen but felt thai
their stand was Injurious to thl-rnsulves.thcii
employers and the building prospects of the
Reason. Thcro were but two cities in the
country , namely Denver and Washington , it
which $4.50 was paid for eight hours work ,
With these exceptions , they claimed brick
layers were paid better.ln Omaha than in anj
other city in the country
In St. Louis they wcro paii
only $4 for eight hours , and In Chicag <
they received only the name wages. There wen
between JtOO and -400 bricklayers in the city
but up to the present time this year less thai
BO possibly had been regularly employed
The contractors further stated that they hat
as yet made no arrangement to secure belt
from abroad and did not know when thoj
would muko the attempt. But , if the brick
layers refused to come to terms , the con
tractors would , if they could do so , bo cor.i
polled to get assistance from abroad. Then
was little work being done now and less wai
being let because both people desiring to buil (
nnd contractors , looking for Jobs could no
make up their minds how much work was t <
cost or what to bid for the stuno. Ono con
tractor said that the question at issue betwcet
f bis associates and the bricklayers was no
ono of dollars and cents. This gcntlcmai
emphatically claimed that last season tin
contractors did not get value for the wagci
Mr. Ulako , representing Norcross Bros.
the contractors of the Now York Life msur
anco company's building , was seen by tin
reporter , and among other things claimed
that ho thought the bricklayers had mudo i
mlstako in striking so. early in the year , nm
thought that they should at least have woitei
until about the llrst of May , by which timi
r contractors would bo able to know what worl
they would bo able to command. His Urn
had bought a great deal of material at ad
vnnccd rates , and ho did not think that ii
such a c.iso it was Just the thin ]
at this time to advance bulldim
to pay an increased cost for put
ting that material in place
Cessation of labor would not affect his flrru
It belonged to the Boston association of con
tractors , the custom of which was to pay th *
wn.jos in vogue in every town into which i
cntorcd to do work. It was not its busincs
to ir ako rates. While the strike would o
cout so retard the completion of tlio Life in
Bura ice company's building it would not in
jure nis linn because all that was required o
the latter was to exercise business dlscretioi
in the carrying on of the work , other clausei
in the loutraet protecting them In the even
of strikes and other serious obstacles. Then
was no time mentioned in their contract fo
the completion of the building.
Several of the leading members of tin
| > rloklayers' union wcro afterwards seen b ;
the reporter. They claimed that they wcr
out to stay until their demand was reached
The contractors were nnulo aware of this
and hn J Known it for some weeks. But thui
far about the only information given by th
latter was what had been published in th
. | mpcrs. The bricklayers had sought confer
cnccs with the contractors , but the meeting
held wcro irrepuler and no ultimatum hai
been given. A bricklayer was worth f 1.5
for eight hours hard worl
in the heat. They had take :
this step as early ns they had in the yea
in order to give their employers a chance t
llguro at the now rate upon the work whicl
is to bo done this bcnson.
The change in wages was but a more bagn
tclle oven upon tlio old profits of the con
tractors , which were always ample , am
while tiioy would afford the Journeymci
about the same he received last year , but fo
ono hour's less work , it would not meet will
the objection of people desiring to bulk
nor yet detract from the earnings of the con
tractors. If bricklayers found employer
who were willing to pay the now rates o
wages they were at liberty to work for then
Irrespective of the number of Journeymei
who might remain Idle. In conclusion the ,
claimed the union was willing to take con
tracts and give bonds for the satisfactor ,
performance of the same.

MATT1E KOLIjMHYKirs FOHTUNE
Blic Goc * to Hlnnx City to CInlin Her
The sequel to the BEE'S several publlca
.lontf concerning the fortune left to a notor
ous prostitute named Mnttio Kolltncycr was
lold to a MBB reporter yesterday by Mr.
Charles U. Schrothi a relative of the family ,
and who Is intimately acnualntcdwith , ) all the
details of the aise.
The man Stevens who cnmo hero in search
of the wayward Mattlc proves to bo her own
father , Stevens Is a miser , and did own
much valuable property In Sioux City , and
also in Maine. Stevens is a temperance
lecturer and street fakir. By
following these vocations ho nmassed
a fortune valued nt from ft' OOO
to tTO.UOO and fettled down with his family In
Sioux City to enjoy his income. The habits
of his former life , however , made him wish
to return to them and so ho turned over all
his property In fee simple to his wife and
started out on his wandering career again.
This was live years ago nnd hohadiiccn gone
but a few months when Mrs. Stevens died.
She left no will and the property , according
to the laws of the state of Iowa , must bo
equally divided among thu heirs , six in num
ber. Mattie's portion amounts to about
* 11,000. On Friday last Mr. Stevens
found out that Mattlo was living
With her negro lover at Fremont.
Ho ( started for this city but within an hour
uf forwards Mnttio and her negro arrived In
Omaha. They went directly to the house ot
a friend on Dodge street. Next morning Mr.
Stevens returned and met his daughter. The
negro was prevailed upon to return to Fre
mont and Mnttio yesterday started for Sioux
City accompanied by her father.
Ono of the strangest incidents coiv
nccted with Mnttic Kollmeyer's life , who
by the way was the honored wife of a well-
known Sioux City painter , Is the fact that
she gave birth to thrco children within
twenty-eight months and fifteen days uftei
her marriage. >
The Stevens family Is ono of eminent rc >
spcctability , and nearly nil of the male portion
tion aru wealthy. Mnttio is the ono blucli
sheep of thu family , but it Is said that she has
cut aloof from all of the old degrading ties
and will now live nu upright life.

Omnlm IB Getting Them In
Ono of the most noticeable proofs of the
growing superiority of Omaha as n railroad
nnd consequently as a receiving and distrib
uting center , was the removal to this city on
Saturday last of the office of W. J. Hancock ,
general superintendent of the Wells Fargo
express company. Ho brinfrs with him a
force of fifteen clerks , all of whom have been
located in commodious and elegant quarters ,
comprising eight rooms in the United States
national bank building. This office with its
assistants was formerly located in Council
Bluffs. The territory superintended by
Mr. Hancock extends from Ogdcn to
Chicago and southward , comprising all
the lines of this well-known company ki
Texas , Louisiana. Kansas , Dakota
New Mexico , Colorado nnd Nebraska. The
transfer to this city has been made because
Omaha affords greater facilities for com
munication with nil the lines in the territory
Another change In the express business to
this city was the orcccnt removal of Dudley
nvans , superintendent of the division ot
Wclls-Fargo's express Included in the terri
tory of Dakota and the state of Nebraska. Ho
has also opened his office in the United States
National bank building , with four rooms ,
nnd keeps busy n force of four clerks.
Still another has been the opening up of
the ofllco of the superintendent of the sta
tionery department which has up to the present -
sent time been located In San Francisco.
William M. Ashton , formerly clerk to the
superintendent , has been appointed to the
charge of the olllce.
W. P. Brcnmin , late chief clerk of the
superintendent In that section of the Wells-
Fargo Express company lit , Houston , Tex. ,
has accep cd the position df cashier of the
same company at this place. For live years
Mr. Brcnnan acted us thu agent of- the com
pany before his transfer to Houston. His
office in this city Is a promotion and riicogni-
tion of his services for the company which
have extended over the past fifteen years.
Ho succeeds W. J. Chapman , who has been
promoted to the agency of the company at
Fort Worth , Tex.
It is also understood that a move Is on foot
to securu for this place the ofllee of the sup
erintendent of the Iowa division ol
the American Express company.
This division comprises the northern
part of Iowa nnd some of Dakota. The office
is at present in Des Moincs , and the superin
tendent Is L. A. Garner , formerly local agent
in this city. The odlce is on no through line
except the Chicago & Rock Island road , and
that line in the express business Is controlled
by the United States. If this move should
bo mudo It would give to Omaha a distinctive
title ns nn express center , as it * would ther
have the general offices of the Pacific , thosi
of the superintendent of the eastern nnd Nebraska

A Former Well-Known Citizen ol
Oinului Guilty of Forgery.
Frank E. Romankoff , formerly of this city
nnd well known , is a self-confessed forger
RomnnkotT formerly ran a dairy at Thirty
third and Scward streets , but about eightcci
months ago removed to Neligh , Neb. , ani

removal , Mr. Theodore Williams purchased
thirty acres of land in Benson from Lottie T

A Beneficial Change.
The arrangements mudo by the Chicago

at Omaha , and making this the terminus ol
passenger tiains , went into effect yesterday
This is now the lay-over point for passenger :
by this line for Chicago. Their llycr will ur

Union Pacific has changed the time of its
Omaha nnd North Platte train , both goiiif
and coming. By this schedule tlio alec-pin ;
cars arriving from St. Paul will come
through to this city , and 'start from thi
Union Pacilii : depot instead of stopping a

posed by the Union Pacific , nnd the arrange
inent is ono of great benefit to this city.

"I think thiit'8amtstnko"ho replied ;
'wo merely draw hope from the cir
cumstances that our own case is not
vovbo than o thorn , nnd that the worst
mve coino out all right. There is
nothing In life more strengthening than
hut kind of hope ; nothing more exquis-
te than to suddenly know nnd feel that
vo are promptly and permanently over
i great trouble. "
"Do you mean reverses In business or
ihyslcnl buffering ? "
"Both. Of the latter wo have no ade
quate conception. Wo worry over a
oothacho and forget that half a lifetime
s often tortured in the snmo way. "
"Yes , and Wo are generally relieved
vhon and where wo loiibt expect it. "
"And then become remorseful that wo
ladn't sense enough to see the right
course before. I want to tell you a story
of real life ; no fiction to varnish itt but
a recital KO straight and true it can t bo
lenied. One day a man came into my
ollk'o and in coun-eof conversation said :
My bibtor-ln-lnw , who liven in Mllroy ,
Pa. , was , in the spring of 1801 , a hale ,
vigorous woman in the prime of life ,
ind was about to visit s > omo friends
when she was thrown from the wagon
vnd her spine injured. ' Now mark how
, ho man went on : 'From that time till
the spring of 188IJ , nineteen long years ,
the was a helpless cripple , unable to
walk. ' That is , as ho explained it , she
lay partially paraly/ed. Well , to verify
what you said about being relieved when
we least expect it , the narrator told the
further circumstance. They had tried
everything to relieve her without ctTect ,
till one day her daughter having read
about great remedy bought two
bottles. VVlmt must have been the ex
quisite plOasuro of the moment when ,
as the man said , before the second bottle
tle was exhausted. 'My Mster-in-law was
able to walk about and has been com
pletely cured ? " '
"Do you think the story straight ? "
"Certainly , It was verified in this
way : It is in my line of duty to make
inquiries , and no caw is ever allowed to
puss uncorroborated , so I placed the
statement in the hands of the postmas
ter at that place with a request to veri
fy it as far as possible. "
"Did he verify it ? "
"Did he ? Well , the Ci e was so re
markable that he sent a full statement
to the New York World , where it was
published over His siirnaturo. It is the
celebrated case of Mrs. John Gonmill
Milroy. Milllin county , Pa. , and Mr. M.
Thompson was the postmaster , "
"Hy the way , . \ou have not yet said
what brought about this wonderful
"Haven't T ? You might easily guess.
No other remedy in the \\orld would
perform such a magical cure but St.
.WobsOH ; nnfl that was what did it.
So that now you see , when we diicuia
misery as company , I like to tullf about
such cases , for there are a largo number
on file , fully verified and equally true
and remarkable. "

Our new spring stock of Men's , Boys' and Children's Clothing irf
now complete and open for inspection.
Weclaim it is the largest collection of .new and stylish goods evetf '
exhibited in Omaha.
We further clayn that we have marked our goods at muohlowetf
prices than any other house will name for like qualities and makes.
This week we will make a specialty on Spring Overcoats. Oi thesd
we show a splendid assortment ; all the latest shades in fine Meltons ,
Diagonals , &c. , silk and satin lined and beautifully made ; in short , the
most dressy garments that the market affords ; but the most attrac
tive thing about them is the prices these are positively the lowest
ever haard of
As our special bargain this week we offer two styles of Spring
Overcoats at $6. These we can prove are worth double the amount.
They are made of fine all worsted goods , lined with best double warp
Italian , satin scriped sleeve lining , and made like regular custom gar- *
ments. We have two shades , one a fine grey the other a brown , either
of them is a splendid color. We challenge any retail clothing house in ,
the United States to show a like bargain.
Our next price is $7.75 , a fine Melton Overcoat with silk facing and
elegantly trimmed and made. Then we have one at $9.25 , $10.50 ,
$12.75 and $14.50 each , and all selected bargains not to be found any *
Where else. t
In our Boys' and Children's Department we are opening daily new }
and choice goods. We propose to make this department the most at *
tractive one in the city for style and prices.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
