Chief P. M. Arthur , the venerable head of
the Brotherhood ot locomotive Engineers ,
will receive by mall tomorrow n statement
of the Misting troubles on the Catsklll
branch of the Union Pacific railway. Ho
has been asked to como to Omaha and cn-
cleaver to secure the reinstatement of the
employes discharged for alleged drunken
ness. Cnlef Clark of the conductors
H Is said will como her
to confer with the Union Pacific officials on
n similar mission. The grievance committco
that mot General Manager Dickinson yester
day evidently failed to attain the object of
their visit.
The eminent chiefs have , therefore , been
appealed to and may accede to the request.
They nro expected Friday or Saturday of
the present week.
Clmlrmitn Vromnn'it Views ,
Mr. George Vroman , chairman of the gen
eral grievance committco of the Order of
Hallway Engineers of the Union Pacific sys
tem' looking at peace with nil the world ,
talked with a represonatlvo of TUB BEG re
garding the facts In connection with the dis
charge of five tr.ilnmon on the Catskill
branch of the Union Pacific.
"In Mr. Dickinson's recent Interview pub
lished In Tin : Uic : , the Inference Is made
that both National brotherhoods repre
sented here uphold drunkenness and drink
ing while on duty. Now that Is an unfortunate -
nato mistake , because drinking while on
duty Is prohibited by the fundamental laws
of both the National brotherhoods of en
gineers nml conductors.
"Jn this case wo have only nsltea what
seems right between man and man , the pro
duction of proofs to show that thcso men
hail been drinking on their rim from Cats-
Jttll to Trinidad May 29 , when it is alleged by
tlio company the drinking took placo. Hut
nt the meeting with General Manager Dick
inson no proofs wcro produced. On our side
wo have many nflldavlts to show that these
men had not been drinking on the day in
Superintendent Rgnii CrlllcUcd.
' Another fact which goes far towards
strengthening tlio cause of the men In my
eyes. Is found in the manner of their sus
pension and ttio efforts used by Mr , Kgan.
the division superintendent , to fasten the
quilt upsn the crow. When four miles out
of Trinidad on Juno 12 , they worn informed
by telegraph to icyort nt the division supcr-
Intcndcnt's ollico on their return. Each
man was then taken into the ollico of Super
intendent Egan's and asked as to all
the details of what occurred on May
20 , with tha result that everybody
told the same story , oven to to the iiroman ,
who was not discharged. Now , these men
could not have fixed up a story in tlmo to
tell Egan , especially when they did not
know what they wcro called in for. It is a
fnct that where the drinking Is said to have
taken place there Is only a shanty , and no
liquor Is on sale , although the cn-
Kltieor testified that ho had been
offered a iliink or. this occas
ion , but refused. When they wcro
dismissed from the service the men natur
ally began to gather evidence in rebuttal
nml seventeen men , reliable men too , have
aworn that the men were not intoxicated
nor had been drinkiugr.on the day mentioned.
"My own Impression is that some spotter
Is responsible for the laying oft of thcso men
nnd that the company Is endeavoring to
shield him in llio aiTnlr.
"So lar as 1 am concerned , If a man drank
while on duty placlug in peril , not only the
lives of passengers , but train crews ns well ,
I should dismiss him without'compunction ,
but where there is a gravoqucstion of doubt ,
us in this case , I believe It but Justice that
the evidence of guile should bo produced.
"This talk of a strike of coursu is twaddle.
Wo never piny any bluff game and nro con
servative in all matters affecting the inter
ests of the men nnd company. Whether wo
shall have another interview with Mr. Dick
inson is still undecided. Ofc-uurao the mat
ter is not dropped by any moans waiting for
advices from other sources.

Charlo N. Hammond , the engineer who
was so incontinently dismissed from the
ecrvlcc of the Union Pacific on Juno 17 because
cause ho had been drinking while on his run
from Trinidad to Cnt&kill nnd return Ma }
29 , told n different story from the divivisioi
superintendent , Mike Egan. Hammond ,
who la a very mild-mannered , pleasant look
ing gentleman , said :
"Wo were ready to leave Catskill at 3:2. : ,
on Mny'Jit , when wo got an order o go to
Smith's mill on the Hod River branch to got
Bovcn loads of lumber and take them to
Trinidad. This put vs about an hour and a
half behind tune , as the cradei nro some
thing prodigious in that section of Colorndc
and Now Mexico , mostly over vcrr hig
trcsslcs and stiff curves. Hut wo arrived in
Trinidad only fifty-livo minutes late. It wai
on this trip that the alleged drinking tool
place , although in five years constant work
Ing out of Trinidad this is the first marl
against a clean record on my part.
"Tho train from Trinidad to Catshlll is
made up of freight and curries passengers
and the mail. Lately the train has been
making very bad tlmo and nn order from th
postodico deparment imido its nppearanc
calling the attention of the officials lo th
fact ami asking for bolter service. This
believe to have been the real cnuso of nl
thodiniculty. The run from Trinidad t
CatHlull twenty-seven mites , takes nin
nnd ono half hours although wo have neral
four hours at Catskill to kill , which w
usually do by switching empties Catshi
to the lumber and tie camps and coke ovcm
long the line and
bringing back loaded cars
as wo can only huulfcorcn cars at n tlmo u
loniu of the grades.
"On May li'.iwogotln ' late and nnturall
thcro was a kick. On Juno 12 wo wcro lai
off although sveryonoof the crow tcstillc
to the fact that there had been no drlulInK
on the trip. When I went up to Egan on
Juno 17 to hear the result of the investiga
tion which wo had asked , ho told mo that I
was discharged from the company's service ,
that ho hod the 'dead slnch1 on mo anil that
It was useless to carry the case up hignor.
J'Aor slnco 1 came to Omaha to attend the
annual meotl'ig of the grievance committee
ho has had it in for mo seemingly and re
marked to a frloml that It would c-ost mo my
lob , Uuder these conslderiil'ons 1 cannot
help but demand nn Investigation and call
upon the officials to furnish proofs of my
dlmllng on that day. If the ehartro was true
1 would ( rrnepfiilly submit , but my friends at
Urlnldait said they would testify to my
reputation ns a good citizen nnd they Inter
ested the general onicers of the Order of
Hallway Engineers In my behalf. Of course
I think Mr. Dickinson believes ho has evi

CHICAGO , July 17. The western roads nro
6t last ready to como down on World's fair
rates nnd they nro ready to got uhiost to
the bottom. The Chicago , Milwaukee & St ,
Paul , Northwestern , Atchlson and Koch
Jsland roads todny requested Chairman
Caldwell to call a meeting at 10:30 : o'clock on
f Tiilay morning of this week for the pur
pose of considering World's fair rates.
The request for the call says that U Is deslr-
nblo that tickets bo sold every day , good for
passage on regular trains , and good for the
return passage from Chicago any day up to
ind Including a tinal return limit of about
thirty days , the ono way rates between Im
portant terminals are to bo based proportion-
ttcly upon whatever reductions uiuy bo
) uide or agreed upon for the round trip rail's
The propositions which the nssoclatlon wfll '
consider nro In specific form as follows !
The mtfihlMimont. of fair ono find one-
third for the round trip from points within
200 miles of ChlciiBo. ,
One faro for the round trip from points 200
rnllos or over from Chlcapo , the rate to bo
cradod bnck until tha ono and one-third faro
Is reached.
Tickets Rood for the eolnjj pftssnge , com-
menclo on thodntoof sain nnd coed for the
return pns ngo from Chicago for nny date
within tha final return limit.
The tickets to ho good for passages In any
cnron regular tvnlni.
Tickets to be told every day from July 20 to
August 1 ,
One-way rates between Important termi
nals nro to bo agreed upon nnd proportionate
rates are to bo t-ranted for St. Ix > uls. In ad
dition to this , all rates are to bo used for
selling and basing purposes.
The association may not decide Vo yield all
the points asked by the lines , but It Is prac
tically a foregone conclusion that It will
Irant ! .tho most Important one- that of ono
faro for the round trip and the chances nro
very strong that they will adopt most of the
others. The truth of the matter Is
that the passangcr business for July
la showlmj a marked decrease from
that of Juno nnd the ro.uls nro beginning to
feel uneasy. People are not Hocking to the
fair quite ns much ns the roads anticipated ,
nnd they now realize that something must
bo done and done at once. Chairman Caldwell -
well Issued the call for the meeting on Fri
day ns requested , and next week will proba
bly sco the new rates in effect.

CHICAGO , July 17. The day opened warm ,
ivlth clouds at the World's fair , but It did
not prevent a largo attendance. The work
of clearing away the dobrls from the ruins of
the cold storage warehouse will require an
other week. iMoanwhilo the stench from the
decaying meats and vegetables , and possibly
human corpses , Is most rank In splto of the
liberal application of disinfectants.
The fund for the benefit of the survivors
and families of the dead firemen now
amounts to $ K0,000 ! , and is not yet completed.
An unusually attractive musical program
has been arranged for this week.

The first competitive flight of homing
pigeons was won by a bird from the loft ot
Thomas J. Clark at Ucton park ,
Island. The winged messenger arrived nt
the end of Its Journey nt 7:18 : this morning.
A few moments later a dispatch conveying
the information was rcceivt'd at the agri
cultural department at the World's fair.
The time of the pigeons started Saturday
morning was not what the owners expected
it would bo. They were started from Jack
son park at 10:30 : Saturday morning
nnd wcro duo in the cast yestcr
day , but nothing was heard of
them until 7:18 : this morning , when the first
reported. Accordingly , the trip was made
bured that the birds never fly at night , It is
very evident that they wore on the wing
from daylight until dnrlc , If they did not fly
in less than two days , and , when it Is remom
as fast as possible. The owner of the win
ning bird was awarded the World's fair gold
medal nnd ? 5U from the Now York section.
The second lot of pigeons lot go on the plaza
today uro for Philadelphia and some of them
are expected homo to'morrow.
In the national commission today Com
missioner Stearns of Idaho offered a resol
ution calling for the appointment of a special
committee to secure evidence to aid the
United States government in refuting the
claims of damages made by foreign ex
hibitors. Ho said claims against the United
States government amounting to $ IOO,000 had
already beeti filed by foreign exhibitors , who
held that their gooils had been damaged at
the fair. It would be easier to secure
evidence to refute these claims now than to
wait until the close of the exposition. Mr
Hundley of Alabama , held that , according to
the act of congress creating the fair , the
United States government stated it would in
no manner bo responsible for any damages.
Ho therefore moved to refer the matter to
the Judiciary committco and his motion

but because of the reasons assigned , th

tween the company anil several discharged
The presence of thcso men In Omaha , It
was learned , was to reinstate , If possslblo ,
several employes of the company who had
been unconditionally "fired" on account of
drinking while on duty , the names
of the discharged being Ed Hlnes ,
conductor ; C. N. Hammond , engi
neer ; .fohn Tammany , George Marshall
and Amiv Nelson , brakemcn , running on the
Catsklll branch , and directly responsible to
Division Superintendent M. li\ Egan , who
holds ofllco under General Superintendent
W. A. Deuell.
Superintendent Egan , learning that thcso
men had been touching the "rod
eye" while on their run , suspended
them on Juno 12 , pending an Investi
gation. On Juno 17 tlio men reported to
the superintendent to ascertain the result of
his Investigation , and Instead of meeting
with reinstatement they were told their ser
vices wcro no longer desired by the com
pany. Thcso facts having been reported to
the grievance committees of the two rail
way organizations , General Superintendent
Doucl was called upon to investigate , but his
findings sustained Division Superintendent
Egan. Having exhausted their resources in
the west with oHlclals on the ground , the
committee nslccd for a meeting with General
Manager Dickinson , which was accorded
them this morning.
After three-quarters of an hour with Mr.
Dicitlnson the committee came out of the
general manager's ofllco looking .anything
but happy and nt once repaired to their
hotels to report the result of the mooting to
ttio ccncral committees of the orgaulzna-
I'o.t4t4 the Fake Factory.
Mr. Dickinson , speaking of the result of
the meeting of yesterday morning , said : "Tho
talk of a morning paper that a strike would
result if the men discharged were not rein
stated is about as silly a piece of newspaper
twaddle as I have ever seen. Certainly such
utterances could not havei como from cither
Mr. Vroman or Mr. KUslck , who are both
Intelligent , fair-minded men.
"After going over the situation carefully I
found that there was no ground for revers
ing the decision reached by Mr , Egan and
so informed the committee. The men had
been drinking while on duty and wo liavo a
most stringent rule regardup ! that subject
which the men are awuro of when tlioy
enter tlio employ of the company. If such a
rule were not In force , llfo and property
would bo constantly in jeopardy , and its
rigid enforcement must bo insisted upon by
the ofllcials. Men are being discharged
every day by every railroad in the country
for drinking while employed in their call
ings. It must bo so , else how could disci
pline bo maintained ?
' It would seem as if this company had not
the right to discharge ono of its employes era
a dozen , when openly violating ono of tlio
strongest rules of .tlio . service , without first
securing the consent ot the order to which
the man is attached.
"So far as I am concerned my connection
with the affair is nt an end. I told the dele
gation that I would leave for Chicago today
and return on Thursday or Friday , when , If
they had any additional information tt sub
mit I would bo glad to hear it and moot the
representatives of the orders directly con
"So far as a strike Is concerned T do not
think It is contemplated for a moment , but
should it take place It would undoubtedly
still further reduce expenses , which wo arose
so strenuously bent upon at this time. In fact
u strike might solve a vexed question of rail
road management at this tlmu and save us
considerable money which wo cannot save
now. "
Dcproftulon lu Rallroul : Itu liic * .
General Manager Dickcnson Of the Union
Pacific , being1 in a pleasant frame
of mind yesterday , unbosomed himself
regarding the hundred and ono reasons
assigned for the general discontinuance of
passenger trains on branch lines of railways
throughout the west. "But the most senseless -
loss reason assigned , " said Mr. Dickinson , "I
found copied in a western paper , wherein It
was stated that so hard pushed was the
Union Pacific to take care of its business on
the main line tnat it had to discontinue its
branch service to secure equipment to take
care of the main line travel. I can not
Imagine u moro charming bit of llctlon than
that is. It IB as far from the truth us it
could well be.
"We huvo uot only been compelled to re
duce all branch lines so far as passenger
trains are concerned but huvo bocn forced to
reduce our forces to a very great extent.
The employes have accepted the situation
philosophically , particularly the shop men ,
who are most affected , These men road the
papers and appreciate the crisis through
which railroads arc passing and nro willing
to iibidu the curtailing of expenses knowing
that just ns soon as business warrants they
will bo put back to worlc. Wo have no work
for the men let out and couldn't pay them if
wo had. "
"Will the Union Pacific go into the hands
of a receiver ? " the reporter asked ,
"That is another rumor made up out of
whole cloth. A local paper alleged that Mr ,
Clark had son -mo a telegram stating that
if expenses Vcro not cut down the road
would have to go to a receiver. Now Mr.
Clark never sent mo nnv sort of a telegram
whatever , and if ho had I would hardly ped
dle it around the community. Up to July 1
the llnunces oft the Union Pacific wore In
excellent condition , the fact that it
anticipated its July Interest being
proof of that statement. Hut
what condition the road will be In next Janu
ary Is an unknown quantity which no man
