Indications That There Will bo No
Strike This Season.
The Questions at IRSUO Between the
Master anil Journeymen I'liimb-
ors Reduced- Labor at
the Shi i > B.
Unity Prevails.
t present there Is no rea
son to bcllovo that thcro
will bo any serious trou
ble between workmen
and tliolr employers in
Omaha this spring.
There is a little 111
feeling existing between ,
the journeymen anil master
tor plumbers , but it is now hoped that any
thing In the way of a lock-out or a strlUo
will bo avortori.
'it is true that thorn has boon n strike of the
Journeymen tailors this spring , but that was
finally satisfactorily ondnd , and although
in this strike both sides wore stubborn and
the men remained out tire or six wcoks , It Is
the only strike that uas been on and only a
comparatively few men were affected.
lu thu railroad circles there seems to bo
unusual trauquillty , except , perhaps , on the
Union Pacific , whcro thcro is some
dissatisfaction among the men.
Especially Is this true of these
employed In the shops , who are Inclined to
llnd fault with the reduction of tlmo and
wages which wout Into eflcct last Monday.
A majority of the men , or a largo portion tit
least , would prefer to work eight iiours and
receive inoro pay. There have boon some
muttering among the younger men over this
change , but it Is not supposed Unit any sori-
ons results will ensue from this , or that , In
fact , thcro will bo any trouble upon any of
thu roads running Into this city.
The bricklayers , carpenters , plasterorsand
kindred tradesmen seem to be satisfied with
existing scales and contractors and builders
anticipate no delay in building this year on
account of strikes.
An occasional ruuiblo Is heard from the
typographical union , but well Informed men
in the orgifulzation say that there will bo no
trouble this spring.
Said u veteran 1C. of L. man , a day or two
ngo , "It's Just us natural for workingmen to
strike in the spring as It Is for the grass to
grow , but 1 think this year will bo an excep
tion to the rule , and um willing to wager u
now hat that there will bo no strike this sea-
eon. "
"You'll hear all kinds of tulk about such
and such Journeymen going to strike , but
you don't want to pay any attention to It.
They have to talk , you know , that is the
youngsters , but us older heads can generally
keep them down. "
Ktnall strikes there may be , but none of
any magnitude.
Frank Johnson , who has been foreman of
the section men of the Union Pacific yards
for nineteen years , 'was discharged last
Monday evening , no reason being given
for the action. When wages were re
duced by the company four months
nye , Johnson interceded for his men
and succeeded in securing thorn { 1.40 a day
instead ot 11.25. and his action on this occa
sion. It Is thought , had something to do with
his discharge. lie will appeal his cuso to thu
management , and it is said will bo supported
by the Knights of Labor.

The situation among the plumbers Is un
changed. The Journeymen do not seem to bo
disposed to vako action , neither do the
masters' association. The latter await the
word of M. A. Frco alone to order a lockout ,
they say.
A reporter dropped in to see Mr. Free , yes
terday , and asked him for his side of the
"Here It is in n nutshell , " said he. "Tho
journeymen and master plumbers made cer
tain agreements a year ago , and ono of these ,
was that ono jobber should bo em

I intend now to stick this thing out
and I will not give in ono lota. I have been

men In the cast who are anxious to go to
work for mo , so that there are no lack of
men. 1 don't ' want to make trouble or cause
n lockout if I can help it , nor will I unless
absolutely compelled to protect myself. "
The journeymen contend that they are not
trying to run the business of their employ
ers , but simply ask for that which Is right
nndequaltlc. They held a meeting Thurs
day and Friday nights , but took no definite

A lilttlu Strike.
The strike among the men employed by
waterworks company on the Furnum street
trenches , caused a little rlpplo In labor cir
cles this wcok. The men's wages wore re
duced , on Thursday , from $1.75 to $1.50 per
day , and as soon as the men were notified of
the reduction , 125 of them walked out. The
company assorted that it would bo able to
put other men to work immediately , but
failed to do so. The strikers hung about the
works , and three men wore arrested for
jeerlnt ? pipemen at work in the trenches , but
thcro were no snrious outbreaks. The men
are still out , and no sliovelers have boon
hired to take their places. Thuy say that
they will not return to work for Icsi than
11.75 , and the company says it will not pay
more than $1.50 , and there the matter

Grand Island Oitizons Insist on
Hammond's Removal.
A Probability That the Governor Will
Make Another Inquiry Into
the Affairs of the
1020 P STUKBT ,
LINCOLN. ' April 20. I
Grand Island is anxious to get rid of Com
mandant Hammond , of trio soldiers' and
sailors' homo. In fact , the citizens of the
place are more anxious for his resignation
than the inmates of the charitable institu
tion ; and , moreover , they want one of their
number appointed In his stead. It is learned
that petitions numerously signed have been
received by the board of public lands and
buildings nnd by the advisory board of the
homo , praying that recommendations bo
passed to the governor asking for his resigna
tion. It is also learned that this will not bo
done. "Thn governor was present at the
recent Investigation , and knows the situation
fully , " said n member of the board tO'duy ,
"and ho certainly can act with wisdom
without advice from us. As the papers
have stated , thcro has been some
kicking on the retention of Hammond ,
but ho is a pretty good old
fellow , cranky , perhaps , and petulant , but
whatsoever ho docs is done honestly , and I
believe with pure motives. Most of the in
mates , in fact , liku him and speak very
kindly of his management of the institution.
It is my opinion that the shoo pinches Grand
Islanditcs Because Hammond buys whore ha
can buy the cheapest. Ho gave the contract
for the furniture of the home to u Kearney
lirm because the same class of furniture
could bo boueht tbcro for less money than nt
Grand Island. Other Incidents of this kind
could be mentioned. Business men there
want to furnish the supplies for the house at
their own figures , without competition , mid
boc.iuso 'the old man' will not toady to their
whims he has fallen into bud repute. This
cry li maao worse nnd more effective
because live or six old croakers
churgo abuse , Insunicioncy to cat , lack
of clothes and other things equally absurd
nnd nonsensical. J doubt not that Hammond
is something of an old boro. Wo all know
that ho is very Irritable nnd manifests too
much temper ut times. The trouble is , Ham
mond's position has given him the 'Dig head , '
and K ho is removed It will bo because of re
sults of this human frailty. Hut It won't dote
to appoint a Grand Island man In his place.
'Whenever this is dona there will bo trouble
In earnest. In my judgment , If Hammond
has to go , his plnco wilt bo supplied by some
person with conscience enough to spend the
state's money whore It will go the farthest. "
U Is said that Governor Thayer has gene
to Grand Island to take another peon into
affairs nt the homo , But this is not curtain.
Ho loft yesterday ostensibly for Kearney ,
nnd it will not bo surprising if ho answers a
summons to the former place before ho re
turns. The board of public lands and build
ings Is evidently anxious that ho shall act in
the matter without pressure or restraint.
I'nnr UiToivllUftd Lincoln.
Despite the efforts of Stewart McConlga
and L.V. . HIlllnKsloy , before the city coun
cil last night , the ordinance providing for
Sunday opening of the Eden Musoo. was do-
foatod. The petitions of the church people ,
the remarks of Father Walcli nnd Councilmen -
men Pace , Hushnnll and Dean did most ex
cellent service. It bad been given out before -
fore the meeting of the council that enough
votes bad been secured to insure the passage -
ago ot the ordinance law , and the friends of
Sackctt & Lawler were on hand feeling in
Jubilant spirits. McConlga addressed the
council notrly an hour , assailing religion , re
ligious people , the church end churches , and
closed hli plea in 1 > half of the Musoo , to
take ino place of the churches , and prayed
the passage of thu law to show to fUo world
that Lincoln was advauccd In civilization
and freedom. Dllllugsloy followed. Ho ,
too , talked tor a half hour or more.

The vote was then taken , nnd

table the ordinance , the sure passage of
which had been promlsod. Great surprise
followed. Blllintrftloy was so much sur
prised that ho took Councilman Dean by the
collar and accused him of treachery and
lying. McConlga was in a white heat bo-
causa the churuhcs and schools and morals
of Lincoln had triumphed over the Museo
nnd kindred theatrical entertainments.
No Longer Guess Work.
It is no longer guess work that Urink , of
Hoono , McNnughton and Saunders , of
Seward , have been appointed bank inspec
tors. Though not oDIoIally announced , this
information comes from parties who know
All three appointees are experienced and
practical bankers. It Is said that Saunders
will bo assigned to the work in the first
congressional district and McNaughton in
the Third. The position of bank Inspector
will pay a salary of about I2.0DO a year.
Precocious Boya.
Two boys , giving their names ns Jumns
Leo and Prank Waters , wandered into the
police station last night and stated that they
cnmo ' from Harvard after the father of
'Waters , whom they supposed to bo in the
city. They were apparently eleven or twelve
years of ago each und penniless. The story
they told was straight , nnd they were given
shelter In the cooler for the night. About 10
o'clock n telephone message was received
from the Nebraska Coal and Llmo company
In Omaha , asldnc if two boys unsworing the
description of the hoys "sleeping the sleep of
the Innocent , " in ono of the rooms of the
cooler , had bocn seen in Lincoln during the
evening. The information was given back
that such lads were hero , when it was
learned that tuoy had run uway from homo a
few days ago and had not bocn heard of
since. The olllcors were directed to hold
them until they could bo sent for , and before
this tiuio the anxious hearts of their parents
are quieted. They were sent homo this after
noon , The lads started young , but they cer
tainly do much better than some old timers.
They said that their ambitions were secured
from the midnight perusals of dime novels ,

Fraudulent Conveyance Allowed.
The Molina , Mlllburn , Stoddard company
filed suit In the district court late last even
ing , asking that a receiver bo appointed for
the Hart Hardware company , of this city.
In this petition they assert that Uorryman &
Patterson , a Jinn doing business in Central
City about a year ago , sold or purported to
sell their stopk to F. C. Hart and A , L.
Haven , who removed the stock to Lincoln ,
nnd engaged in business hero under the lirm
name of tno'Haft ' Hardware company. The
plaintitfs nllogo that at the time of the reported -
ported transfer Uorryman & Patterson
were practically insolvent and that the sale
to Hart et nl was1 fraudulent nnd without
consideration. The petition Is qulto lengthy
but the foregoing is the sum nnd substance
of the allegations contained therein. Owing
to their sorlouiinturo ( | the suit will doubt
less provo morp or less exciting. Unless
continued the case will bo tried at the next
sitting of the dAtrlct court.
