Grand iHluml'tt Danger.
Yesterday a committee of cltireu from
Grand Island , consisting of Cou'icllman
Ulof and Messrs. W. U. McAllister nnd
William Gcddes , arrived in this city. Their
Intention Is to confer with the management
of. the Union Pacific road regarding the re
cent eduction of the force of mechanics In
the shop * of the company at that place.
These shops , the committee claims ,
were erected ten years ago , ami
$70.000 were voted for the pur
pose by the city. The committee
further claims that it was understood at the
time that employment would bo given to bo-
twecn 200 and 400 men. So far from com
plying with Iti agreement , the company It
soetnc has never given employment to moro
than 125 men , while at the present time the
number of mechanics in the shops has uouu
reduced to between fifteen nnd twenty ,
The committee ? claims that many of the
discharged men are householders In Grand
Island , who cannot move nwuv without much
dlfllculty and who cannot support their fam
ilies without work. Their removal from
town would bo a great injury to the city ,
especially in view of the fact that the bonus
to the company was given with the guarantee
of continued employment.
One of the i numbers of the committee ex
pressed the fear thut it was the intention of
the company to pay little heed to the desito
of the people because ho understood that
work which had previously been done in
Grand Island was now being done iu Kansas
and other places , nt all events It was not
being done In Nobrnskn.
This , ho said , was true of North Phitto
also , at which place the force of workingmen -
men had been also reduced. Ho feared they
would never bo reinstated , bccauno the com
pany was making such improvements iu
Cheyenne as would , he thought , leave not
ono stone upon another in the shops at North
It would bo possible , ho said further , for
the company to remove its division termi
nus from Grand Island under those circum
stances , in which event the result would bo
The committee also called upon the board
of trade and nsUecl Its mediation but was
told that the iWiird could not take any ac
tion in the nremises until after the manage
ment of the company had been conferred
ns a Center.
The fact that pmaha , as a point for pas
senger trafllc , ts ii-upidly advancing in Im
portance is being : demonstrated in more than
ono way. Hut 'tho ' most reliable support to
the assertion | s iurnished hi the report of
the Burlington- Just compiled on business
transacted for tie ) month of Apiil Just
passed. The titiUet agent at the depot has
footed un his Report which shows sales for
month of April ib have been S17.000 , which is
n large increase oVer last year and the preceding -
ceding month , afid Ulso tno largest sale made
in any one montU inco the ouico was estab
lished. In connection with this report the
business of the"'city offlce , where long dis
tance tickets are sold larcely , may be added ,
which will more than double the amount
The reports of the Union Pacilic make a
corresponding showing of tin increase
in business , the western branch of the
traffic making up the majority. This is but
one straw which goes to show that Omaha
is rapidly becoming the gateway of traffic.
A representative of the Burlington said : "It
is not tar back xvhen the average eastern
tourist would , in going to J points \\esi of
here , purchase through tickets and pass
through Omaha without giving it any atten
tion. Now 00 per cent of this class of trav
elers , when they reach here , stop over and
view the city , and stady its business icsour-
ccs. In this way Omaha is extensively ad
vertised and our business circles become
known throughout the world. "
Five years aao yesterday , at 7 o'clock in the
morning , occurred the memorable strike on
the Union i'acilic. It Was short , but not
sweet , to tlio management. It will bo re
membered that Just preceding this time , at a
conference of the directorate , S. H. II.
Clark , who was then general manager of the
Union Pacific , announced that ho Had con
cluded to cut down expenses , and hud prepared -
pared a little document to the effect thut on
that date a reduction of 10 per cent would bo
made in all salaries rating $100 per month ,
and over this amount , Jho reduction to bo 15
per cent. The llrcmcn and engineers alone
were exempted. The directorate meditated ,
and questioned Mr. Clark as to the probable
effect. The right-hand man of Jay Gould as
sured his listeners that he had studied into
the nmttei , and that the reduction could bo
enforced without any reaction on the
part of the employes. His movement
in this direction was assented to , but with
the understanding that ho ( Chirk ) would beheld
held rosposlblo for the outcome. The general
malinger returned , and 'M the evening
of May 1 , It84 , issued his mandate taking
effect at once. At 7 o'clock the next morn
ing a general walkout at all points on the
line followed , and the wheels of the locomo
tive were brought to u standstill. Clark
failed to comprehend the magnitude of the
opposition , but ilia not remain in ignorance
in tills respect very long , as a tolecram
reached him about noontime on May 2 con
veying the Information that the strikers had
become violent and that ut Laramie they
were busying themselves by destroying en-
gincH unil railing stock. During the remain
der of the day Clark kept the wires hot bo-
twcan Omaha and Boston , and at 7
o'clock that evening in utter disap
pointment Clark issued a recall ofthe circu
lar , and the strike Was at once declared off.
The duration of The trouble was twelve
hours , but It wasllvely while It lasted. The
result of the issue Is historical. Clark was
not only dofoutua/Jn Ills undertaking , but
was soon auvceuilp&by Callovvay as general
manager. And is 6ach year rollsiby the ad
vent of the dutu of the strike results
m the issue lififug discussed anew by
the Union Pacific employes. To-duy it was
Iho ohlof topic of cunvorantion among the
workmen , many thinking that May 2 should
be observed us a .semi-holiday by Union
Paoitlc employes .generally.
A Ne\v Device ,
Yesterday ongnjp 717 , standard freight ,
on Iho Union Pacific , wont west with a
heavily Judeued icuain of curs. This Is the
engine that has been equipped with a horse-
jxnvor lurtlcatorf'lnj order , if possible , to
ascertain the qtmnllty of coal .required in
handling a certain , number of cam , or , in
other words , tin order that some basis may
be ODtuinoJ to roirulutc the quantity of coal
actually required. The indicator rests
on tlio steam chest of the bailor. This i a
dovlco of George Cashing , superintendent of
motive power pf the Union Pacific , who , lust
at present , is laying out pltins for rigid
economy. Ho Is of the opinion that the
tiromon are wasting coal to u largo extent by
not tiring their engines properly , and bus devised -
vised this system of ascertain ing the quan
tity required to move rapid and heavy trains.

HIS EXPLOITS IN MINNEAPOLIS.
Wanted l'r ARslstlnc In Stealing
10OOO Uusholi or Wlicnt From
the Union Ktovntor Com-
pnny or Minnesota.
What llo Sny Abotil It.
A rosy-cticckcd , smooth-faced Individual ,
stout and woll.proportlonoil , bul wearing
common clothes , reclined on the soft sldo of a
pliiulc iu cell No. 3 at the police station last
night. Until sloop put nu cud to his thoughts ,
ho meditated on the fall of n man trying to
get rich by robbing nn elevator company.
His name was W. S. Holcombc.
Late last September the Union Elevator
company , of Minneapolis , discovered that
grain was disappearing from its buildings.
Where it was going was n mystery
for some ttmo. The bins gradually showed
a decrease over and above what was being
shipped cast or taken out for use in the ( lour
mills. Kx-Governor Plllsbury , the president
of the company , called n meeting nnd the
mutter was discussed. Men were located
at the elevators to llml out what was becoming -
coming of the grain , ns it was known tliat
the cereal was disappearing too fust to
furnish food for all tlio rats In the north
The result was that the company dlscov-
01 cd that a few men were systematically
engaged in robbing the company. Holes had
been bored in the > us of a number of
elevators , and from these holes thousands of
bushels of wheat had been stolen. The exact
amount Is still unknown , but it was placed
all the way from 'W.OOO to CO.OOO bushels.
Wheat was then selling at about seventy-two
cents per bushel , so thnt the steal footed up
anything from S' 5,000 to § 50,000.
Investigation Into the matter implicated n
number of men. among whom was W. S.
Holcombc , tlio prisoner at the central police
station. At that time ho was a baloonkoupcr ,
whoso place of business was a few blocks
from the Minneapolis chamber of commerce.
He , with two others , were pulled up and an
effort made to settle the mutter. Holcombe
sold out his saloon for (0,750 and turned that
amount over to the Elevator company. The
others who were caught gave up what they
had , and so far as they know the matter was
Yestcrdav Chief Seavey received a tele

lifter the arrest. "I like Omnha nnd 1 want
to tuuke it my home. The less notoriety
there is to it the sooner I will bo able to pet
up again. "
"Yes , " he continued , "I have boon travel
ing for a Chirugo house , but I don't wish to
mention any names. "
"Didn't you sattle up with them before
leaving Minneapolis } "
"Yes , I sold my saloon for $5,750 , and
turned thut amount over to them. I was in
nocent of the whole mutter , though 1 think
thcro was ono man supposed to have
hud a hand in it who escaped.
I can not see what they want me for except
us a witness in the case , because I settled
"Requisition papers ) No , they don't re
quire any. because I'll return without them.
When do you oxpcct the ofllcers from Minne
apolis ! " ho added , turning to Chief Seavey.
"To-morrow , probably , " replied the chief ,
"although I've heard nothing positive about
it yet. "
At the time , the wheat steal was regarded
as ouoof the smoothest pieces of work of the
kind that had ever been attempted lu Min
