The prominence given by the locnl
ircss to the 8o-calcd ) resolutions pur-
lorting to have been adopted by the
) innhn Control Labor Union impels mo
o make a slixtomonl ever my own name
vith regard to the construction of the
3EK building , Before doinp so I brand
hose resolutions ns a tissue of malicious
alsohoods unworthy of any honorable
or decent member of the building craft.
Whoever the Central Labor Union maybe
bo , the parties who < have given publi
city to these slanders are not reputable
mechanics , but hirelings or designing
> olitlcal and personal enemies. I need
> nly cite four of the eight sections of
, hcso Infamous resolutions to convict
ho authors thereof ns unmitigated liars
nnd scoundrels :
Whereas , The Central Labor Union , com-
irlslng tno federated trades of Omaha * vlow
vith shame and humiliation the actions of a
man , who professes outwardly nnd through
ho medium of n great Journal his friendship
for worktngmon , nnd , "
Whereas , Through , ho medium of his Jour-
ml ho has presumed to teach us that organ-
zed labor should bo encouraged nnd fos
tered , nnd ,
Whereas , The only Job now being erected
n Oinnhn where carpenters are compelled to
work more hours per day than other
contractors demand , being the one which
the aforesaid Journalist Is himself erecting ,
Whereas , Ho has nnd still refuses to accept
union labor on the brick woric of said bulld-
ng. nnd by so doing allows it to bo erected
Tills is n dead give-away on its face.
The BKH bulldlnn is to bo a strictly
Ire-proof structure. Up to this day not
a foot of lumber has been used , and not
a single carpenter is at work on the
juiltlinp , nor lias there ever been a car-
Bonier on the building , nnd no contract
las yet boon made for the carpenter
work , which will bo necessary in flnish-
.ng. This ought to dispose , oiToctivoly ,
of the malicious charge that the car-
pouters employed on the 13iK building
ire compelled to work longer houra for
loss pay than any others.
It is a downright falsehood that I
have refused , or "still refuse to accept
union labor on the brick-work of said
building. " I have never employed a
single mechanic , bricklayer , stono-
cttttor , iron-moldor or hod-carrier at
work on the building , for the
very best of reasons , namely ,
that the granite work Is being done
under contract with Jackman & Sher
man of Chicago , who are to furnish the
granite and place it in the walls 'for a
fixed sum of money under a contract
made last September ; that the brick
work in said building Is being done
under contracts made in September and
December , 1837 , with John P. Coots ,
and the iron work is being done by
Paxton & Viorllng , under a contract
made last October. "Tl have no control
whatever ever men employed by these
contractors nor can I interfere with
them without laying the BEK Publish
ing Company liable to damage suits for
breach of contract. "While I should pre
fer to see union men employed by Mr.
Coots , and have repeatedly told him so ,
and urged arbitration with the union
bricklayers , I can only hold him re
sponsible as contractor for the work he
does. I certainly derive no benefit from
Inferior work , if any such is done.
When Mr. Coots commenced to erect
the walls with non-union bricklayers ,
a committee of the bricklayers' union
called on mo and warned mo against in
ferior work. I told thorn I was not a
competent judge of brickwork , but
would at once send for Mr. Boman , the
architect. I telegraphed Boman the
same day. Ho was sick at the time , but
reached Omaha within four days there
after. The committee of bricklayers
asked that 1 should employ a superin
tendent , but expressed preference for a
non-resident who would show no partial
ity to the contractor. On my request Mr.
Boman engaged as superintendent Mr.
J , S. Baker , of Milwaukee , who had
boon the superintendent of the North
western Mutual Life insurance com
pany's building in that city , planned by
Mr. Beman. Mr. Baker has boon hero
since lost week Friday and receives $200
per month for supervising the work.
Does this show treachery and want of
faith on my part ? Can reasonable and
fnirminded workingmen ask any more ?
A few after the '
days bricklayers' com
mittee had called I was Invited to go be
fore the executive committee of the
Knights of Labor to explain the situa
tion. I did BO , to their apparent satis
faction , by not only answering all their
inquiries , but also by placing in their
mnds the contracts with Mr. Coots
to show that I was powerless
to interfere willl the employment of
non-union men on the BEK building.
In vlow of these faots I submit to an
unprejudiced public whether there is
any ground whatever for the "roasting"
which my Omaha would-be rivals have
taken delight in administering to me
ever the shoulders of organized labor.
If there ever was anything more con-
torn ptiblo and villainous , both on the
part of the bolf-con&tituted mouthpieces
ot organized labor und rival editor * and
publishers , I do.not remember to'lmvo

GREAT MISTAKE ,
Some men think that because they pay high prices for clothing , they got a better article thau
wo sell for half th6 money , This is a mistake. To many customers who visit our store for
the first time , it is a revelation that they can buy just as fine goods of us aud just as well
made as any custom tailor will turn out , and the fact that our prices are from 30 to 50 po
cent cheaper than other houses is also a revelation. The remarkable bargains wo offer this
season have never been approached by any house.
In spring suits wo are opening every * day now lots. All the latest styles are represented
in our stock. The now Prince Albert suit in fine corkscrew -and cassimerq , of different and
beautiful shades and at prices almost one half what other establishments offer.
The most astonishing value over given in a spring suit is offered this week is our new $7
cheviot sack suit. This is made of a splendid all wool cheviot , an elegant color , lined with.
Cue serge , gcod trimmings aud well made. Now , any house will show a seven dollar suit , but
we positively assert that no one will show anything to compare with the quality we offer in ,
this suit for less than $12 , and wo ask but $7 for it.
Oirr , Spring Overcoats are on the wane ; of the finest grades are but a few loft , and wo
have ma'rked them down to close them out. Of our $6 overcoats wo still have a fair assort ,
ment. This is the biggest thing over shown in the way of an overcoat and everybody who
has bought one acknowledges that it is as good a garment as is shown anywhere for $12.
In our hat department we offer this week 25 dozen fine light colored derbys , satin lined
silk band and bind ing , goat sweat leather at $1. If you are asked $2 or $2.5Q for the same
hat you would not hesitate to pay it.
