Tlic Contractors' Card.
A card from tbo bricK contractors' associa
tion of Omaha :
To our patrons nnd the general public :
Gentlemen At n meeting of our association
this , the Mb day of March , It was deemed
proper and advisable that , In view of tbo
Htrlke recently Inaugurated nnd declared by
the Bricklayers' union of this city for higher
wncres nnd less hours work , "that wo should
make a brief statement of the facts In the
case nnd tbo reasons that govern our actions
therein , " wo declare that tbo mechanics of
Omaha have always had our bct.t . wishes and
that at all times wo have been willing to ,
and have , ' granted all of their reasonable
( and for the sake of peace some of their un
reasonable ) requests. This wo did because
wo were willing that they should receive
good wages , and because wo did not wish to
become a disturbing factor In the unprece
dented growth of our city for the
past four years. Wo know that our
interests and that of tboso In our
employ are identical and that , for both sides
to bo successful , wo should work In harmony ,
nnd wo deplore tbo fact that our employes do
not seem to recognize this truth in their coun
cils. Up to the spring of l&Wl , the bricklay
ers of this city were receiving fJ.OO for ten
hours work. At Unit tlmo a demand was
made for n raise of wages to (4.50 for ten
hours work or I5 cents an hour. This was
consented to und were tbo wages for 18S > 0.
They also agreed to grade their men accord
ing to their iiunllllcutions , and this agreement
they afterwards repudiated. In tbo spring
of 1887 , a still greater demand was made , that
nine hours should bo onlay's work atfl.f.O for
every working day In tbo week except Satur
day when they should work only eight hours
and receive $4.50 for this day's work also.
This demand was also allowed them only
after considerable discussion and pro test from
several contractors and at great loss to us.
About a month ago tbo Hrlcklaycrs' union
acting through a committee , "cut n notice to the
contractors that they asked that eight
hours bo u day's work on and after the 1st
of March , IbbS , for each day of the week at
N.W ) per day. At a meeting of contractors
held In tbo llrst week of February they de
cided this was an unreasonable demand and
was not consented to. A committee was ap
pointed to notify them of this action , nnd
also directed to try and make nn agreement
with them. A meeting of tbo two commit
tees was held , nnd our members thereof re
ported that tliero was no prospect of n com-
promlse At tbo next contractors' mceting.itn
offer was sent to them to pay fiO cents per hour
for nine hours' work each day of tbo week
except Saturday , when they should receive
eight hours' pay for eight hours' work ; tills
offer they very peremptorily refused , accom
panying this refusal with the noticutbat all
cleaning down nnd pointing of fronts ( which
Is a separate business ) must ho done by
This is a plain statement of facts , and it
will bo noticed that after their wages were
raised to 15 cents per hour , in 'all their subse
quent demands , they still hold on to the $4.50
per day whether they are to work ten , nlno
or eight hours for it. They cry "more , "
"more , " regardless of tbo fact that rents and
the rest of living are no higher than In 1SM5.
Our association and tbo members thereof
have been assailed in tbo public press.whcre-
In false statements huvo been made anony
mously , which statements huvo been ignored
by us us coming from nobody. Wo have con
sulted our patrons and tboso interested in
building in this city ; also considered tlio fact
that buildings..would cost n great deal more
to erect if wages were raised , and
that wages in Chicago are 40
cents an hour or $3.20 per day ; in Saint
Louis 50 cents per hour or $4.00 per day ; in
Kansas City 40 cents per hour for ten hours
per day , and that the tendency all over
business centers cast is for lower wages , and
the prospect that less buildings will bo built
this year than last ; also that If the wages of
bricklayers Do imnlo higher , an increase in
wages will bo expected by the mechanics In
nil other branches of building trades , it
would do a great injustice to tbo laboring
classes by a reduction of wages winch they
would receive by n reduction of hours.
Wo consider that ns wo are the parties to
whom tbo question of wages Is lirst sub
mitted and acted uix > n , that wo stand be
tween tbo owner and employe , with a dcsiro
to bo Just to both ; that it is our duty to refuse -
fuse to consent to any advance in wages at
this time. Therefore our action in refusing ,
mid wo respectfully ask'you to sustain us in
the same. Respectfully sbbmitted ,
Immediately after the acceptance of the
nbovo report the following resolutions were
Kesolvcd , That the wa cs for bricklayers
bo flfty cents per hour , nlno hours a day's
work , except Saturday , when wo shall
work eight hours and eight hours pay.
Resolved , That wo do away with walking
Kesolvcd , That wo have two apprentices
the llrst year and ono in each year thereafter
if so desired.
Ucsolvcd , That the innitiation fee in the
bricklayers union must bo reduced from $ i
to $15.
Resolved , That nil cleaning down of fronts
and tuck-pointing , also tiro-proofing shall bo
done Ui- whom wo cheese to employ.
Resolved , That all our business appertaining -
ing to labor interests , thu press shall have
free access to , and the secretary is instructed
to furnish them with a csrtitled copy of the
Resolved , That all men who shall bo onv
ployed by us will bo protected in nny event ,
It. E. L IVI.SEV , Secretary.
Tha second resolution , Contractor Cootf
said , was intended to do away with thowalb
ing delegate who was an nppolntco of the
union , and who walked around to see thai
work was done In accordance with the rules
of the union. "Wo have been compelled tc
discharge men because they did not satlsfj
him , " said Mr. Coots , "and ho bus taken met :
oft our work and treated them to beer , nnt ]
wo don't llko it. "
"Tho next resolution means what it says,1
continued the same contractor. ' 'Heretofore
wo huvo been allowed but ono apprentice
and that wo do not consider enough. "
"Tbo fourth resolution rlTects us und nier
also. Urlcklayers come bi'i i from abroad ant'
before they can work tboy'vo got to ] oln tl
union. I must advance for each of the men
for that purpose. Of course I keep itoutoi
.their pay. They give mo on order for tin
amount and I keep it out of their wages. Hul
it's too much on tlio men and they don't likt
it. It ought to bo reduced to 115.
"Tho llfth resolution was adopted because
bricklayers hnvo insisted upon doing tuck
.liointing und tire prootlng. It is not theii
.business. They don't know anything aboul
.it and wo don't want to lot them have any
thing to do wltb it. "
Yesterday the lock-out of the brick lay
.ers was continued though without notic.iblj
Jncrouslng'thu number of unemployed pco
jle on the street. There are , at present , bul
H few buildings in coutt-o of construction ami
.upon these but a few men have been engaged
All of these , as .mentioned in yesterday' !
Un , were dispensed with , but , all told , thej
did not number tlfty men. Tbo contractor :
held out resolutely and when seen by tin
HER rcimrter at noon claimed that tho.v luu
jio dpsiro to vhnngo the condition of alTuirs
JCho' weather was too cold to do work any
way , except without going to tbo trouble o
: heutlug wpter for mortar purposes , and thli
; fact , it Is understood , prevented resumptloi
of work uiion tbo Mercy convent on Fif
.teanth and Cnstollur streets , wltcro it Is un
derstood the contractors will pay tha in
Qreascd prices of $4.50 for eight hours worl
vythen labor may bo resumed ,
kOuo of the contractors said that ho hai
jttatod their" ido of the question as abovi
XiVHn for the purpose of lotting'tho peopli
Snow upun what ground they based their re
ilUMd. "Wo are asking for the sympathy o
jthe people and If wo do not get It why tlici
lit will bo to the loss of the latter. If wo an
Jtot sustained wo will bo compelled to charg <
tinore for our work. If the people giva the !
work to those who will pay the advance
< ( iGM H Will compel u > to meet thcuo com
petition ) and In the end the burden will be
homo by those having Improvements made. "
The rciHjrtcr asked If much competition
was feared.
"It Is "because of competition that wo Are
keeping within the traces. There uro new
contracts coming In hero nil tbo time and
anxious to get up n business , "
"This strike , " said one of tbo best known
architects In.tbo . city , "is doing n great deal
of damage. Nobody knows what to do , and
as a consequence nobody is doing anything
and will not do otherwise until this strike is
decided ono way or the other. We have an
amount of business on hand of course wo
always have perhaps more than our share-
but then it Is not the kind or volume
that wo should have. We have jwrhups
$150,00(1 ( worth of work waiting for n settle
ment of this controversy. I don't want to
say very much because the workmen don't
llko me. I don't sympathlro twith them. I
have watched thcln so much. The more they
gut , really the less they give. IJcsidcs , the
contractors did not tnako money last year.
It's n fact. Those who owned brickyards
did , but tboso who didn't own them scarcely
came out abend. I know cbntractors who
had to compete with others who owned brick ,
had to pay a high price for
the material , and then they were
handicapped by brick-making comiietitors.
Hcsides they had to pay lust j car n high price
for labor and between both of these the con
tractors had by no mentis the best of it. "
"There is not ono of our demands , " said n
member of the bricklayers' union , which is
rot just. Admitting that it is true that wo
are endeavoring to raise our wages nnd 1m-
nrovo our condition is there anything wrong
in that ? The editor of the HEK I understand
raises the salaries of his employes from time ,
to tlmo and why should contractors not do
tbo name thlngl"
"It is claimed that the contractors have not
been making much money. "
"Who said sot That's all moonshine. Look
nt them riding around in their buggies , wear
ing tha finest kind of clothes , smoking tha
best cigars , living in comtortublo homes and
taking trips of months' duration to California
and Kuropo , and then say whether or not
they make money , It's all bosh to assume
that the contractors can't pay these wages.
They can. Last year they , of their own ac
cord , paid oven more than live dollars per
day. It isn't the contractors who pay it. It's
tbo people , and it Is a well known thing that
where wages command a llguro in
keeping with the enrichment of the
country work is more satisfactorily per
formed , and labor and capital are in much
more harmonious relations with ono
another. "
The contracting plasterers bold a meeting
last evening at room -IC'J , Paxton block , to
consider prices for the coming season. The
prices this year will bo about tbo same as
those that prevailed last season , except that
patching after carpenters will bo regarded us
extra work and will require pay by the day.
In drying plastered rooms by artificial heat
three cents per yard extra will bo charged.
At 2 p. in. Friday they meet again to discuss
other important business.
Y. P. 8. C. E. of the First Presbyterian
The society met in the study of the church
Monday evening and proceeded to the regular
semi-annual election of ofilccrs. Mr. G ,
Hawley was elected piesldent ; Mr. C. L.
Shook , vice president ; Mr. C. L. Grlfllths ,
After considerable discussion tbo president
was empowered to appoint the various com
mittees needed to carry on the work.
A lively interchange of ideas concerning
tbo various methods of doing the work of the
society was indulged in , during which several
new ones were brought out.
This society has been organized about six
months. During this time it has done much
toward bringing young people into tbo
church. The society starts off with brilliant
prospects and will undoubtedly ba a potent
factor in the working force of the First
Presbyterian church.

Statistics for Hrltnln.
P. MeMttster , western manager of tbo Da
kota Mot tgago loan cotporation of liostsn ,
Mass. , and James Roderick Robertson , pub
lic accountant and auditor of Now York ,
were In the city yesterday. They caino hereto
to got statistical information with a view to
securing British capital to invest in Ne
braska. They called upon the board of trade
and were given a host of facts concerning
the growth of both Omahaand Nebraska and
expressed themselves us delighted witli the
reception. They have now gone to Neligb ,
nnd in n month will sail for London.
It. H. Campbell , superintendentuml W. W.
Collins , assistant superintendent , of the Iowa
division of tbo Chicago , Milwaukee & St.
Pavl road , are In the city. Mr. Collins has
recently been transferred from Chicago , and
to this section of the country , and is getting
acquainted with his territory.
The Foundation n Safe One.
Mr. J. M. Rico , senior partner of the noted
contracting firm of Rico & Hassctt , of Chicago
cage , was in the city yesterday. The firm ia
considered to bo among the best judges ol
heavy work in the country nnd have erected
government buildings in tbo followlni :
named cities : St. Joseph , Mo. , Leavenwoith
Kan. , Jefferson City , Mo. , DCS
Moines , la. , Council Hluffs , la
Ik-sides thcso Rico & Uassctt havt
superintended tbo construction of largo pub
lic and private buildings in all parts of tin
United States.
They uro rated at Washington as A 1 , anil

Mr. Rico was asked last night if ho con
sidered the foundation of thu now city hall
to bo a safe ono. Ho emphatically replied
in thu uflli matlvo , and said that the founda
tion was of sufllciont strength to hold a
much heavier building than thu ono de
signated In the plans. Mr , Rico has careful
ly examined tbo walls , nml beuco speaks
froiufyersonnl knowledge.
Loaves of Bread.
The bakers In n card published in another
column announce that on and after yesterdaj
they will make loaves of eighteen ounces ol
bread , which will retail for 5 cents. Loaves
of thirty-three ounces will sell for 10 cents
This Is qulto a reduction in the price ,
and this is mudo up by n saving In the
amount of labor , because a dollar's worth ol
bread formerly comprised forty-four small
loaves , whereas it now comprises but twenty-
six. Tlio bakers claim the quality of the
bread will bo the same , oven better , and that
the consumption will bo such as to cause
people to abandon the annoyance and vexa
tion of baking bread at homo.

Our new spring stock of Men's , Boys' and Children's Clothing te
now complete and open for inspection.
We claim it is the largest collection of new and stylish goods ever
exhibited in Omaha. . '
We further claim that we have marked our goods at much lowe ?
orices than any. other house will name for like qualities and makes.
This week .we will make a specialty on Spring Overcoats. Ot these
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 h ? ard of. .
As our special- bargain this week we offer two styles of Spring
Overcoats at $6. . These we can proye are worth double the amount.
They are made of fine all worsted goods , lined with best double warp
Italian , satin striped 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.
Ournext price is $7.75 , a fine Melton Overcoat with silk facing and
elegantly trimmed arid 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. .
' Iri our Boys' and Children's Department we ; are opening daily new *
and.clioice goods. We propose to make this department the-most ai >
tractive one-in the city for style and prices.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
