South Omaha packing house managers ,
After n conference yesterday afternoon , de
cided on Ifntilng an ultimatum to the strik
ing employes. ThU Is , that unless the men
return to their places at the old wages by
Monday morning they will bo absolutely dis
charged , nntl then the houses will bo
manned with entirely new forces.
The managers are confident they would
have no great dlfilculty In securing new
men. They say they arc receiving apllca-
tlons from men who want work In Iowa and
Nebraska and that they can get all they
While the strikers In the main seem to
1)0 ) standing firm , a large number are
nnxlous to have the differences settled nt
once , and some of them say that If an agree
ment IB not reached soon they will go back
to work any how.
It Is expected that the committees sent
to Chicago , St. Louis and Kansas City will
report some time this forenoon. A meeting
has been celled for 10 o'clock sharp this
morning , when the report from the special
committee will bo read. There were fully
1,000 men at the meeting last night. Clip
pings from newspapers were read and
speeches urging the men to stand by their
rights wuro delivered by a number of the
men.A large number of special pollco have been
sworn In by the city , pickers and stock
yards company. Sheriff Drexel has not sent
down any deputies , but sent some men who
.Vt'ero sworn In as special pollco.
YESTERDAY AT THE HOUSES.
At all the packing houses yesterday every
thing was quiet. A few new men have been
put to work , but the packers are still run
ning very light forces In the hope of being
Able to Induce the old men to come back.
"Wo will wait until noon today on the old
men , " sold Mr. Cudahy , "and If they do not
como back to work .by that tlmo we will
have to get new men to fill the places. "
"In case the men agree to cancel the par
agraph In their proposition which reads that
they will not go to work until the grievances
are settled In Chicago , Kansas City and St.
Louis , would the packers be apt to accept
the scale of wages submitted by the men ? "
was asked by the reporter.
"No , " said Mr. Cudahy. "We are paying
Chicago wages now and that Is all we can
Rtand. The men who come back will have to
go to work at the same wages they wore
getting when they \vent out. I am told that
X great many of the men want to como back
but are afraid to do so. Several of them have
admitted to mo that they have no grievance
whatever. It was our Intention to begin killIng -
Ing hogs at 9 o'clock this morning , but word
was sent over here to wait until noon , when
it was moro than llkclv that some of the
old men would go to work. "
At the Hammond plant 200 cattle were
Hilled and about SOO hogs. Eight cars of
hogs were loaded to be shipped out and five
cars of cattlo. The manager said that word
had been sent to him that some of the old
men wanted to come back and would do so ,
but they did not care to go Into the plant
when the gang that was out was watching
them. About twenty new men were put
to work here. One man came down from
Omaha with a dozen men. He left his
gang In the suburbs and went Into the housa
and made arrangements for the balance.
The gang then split up and entered the
place one at a time Ih order to avoid the
strikers. "We. have been receiving appli
cations from men who want work from
Iowa and from small towns throughout Ne
braska. In fact , the country Is full of
unemployed men , and wo can got all we
want. It Is true that It Is not an easy
matter to secure skilled workmen at once ,
but wo had to teach the gang that has gone
out , and wo can teach another gang just as
easily as wo did them , "
A few moro men went out at Swift's yes
terday , but Manager Foster said he was killIng -
Ing both hogs and cattle just the same. "Some
new men have been put to work , " said Mr.
Foster , "and If the old men do not comeback
back pretty soon we are liable to run out of
patlcnco and put men on who are willing to
accept our pay. I am not particularly
alarmed about any trouble , but ono thing is
absolutely certain , and that Is If there is
any law to protect our property and the
men who want to work I propcso to see
that It Is enforced. The men that I have
talked with tell me they have no grievance.
That some of them want to come back , but
. they are afraid to do so. I v.111 protect our
property and the men under any and all
When asked If any of the hog butchers
intended going back to work , ono of the
union men who works In that department
said that the rumor was false. "There will
not be a single man go back If we can keep
them , " said he , "by reasonable argument or

Other Court Caici.
The celebrated divorce case of Ilergstrom
against Uergstrom has taken another turn
In the district court. Yesterday Olaf
Uergstrom filed his answer and cross bill ,
In which he alleges that the numerous allc-
gat.ons made by Mrs. Dcrgstrom In her pe
tition are absolutely false , and tells a story
of the plaintiff's wrong doings that rivals
the charges made by licr when she had her
The Uergstrom case has been regarded
with some Interest , as Olaf Uergstrom Is
one of the most prominent Swedes In Ne
braska. Years .ago ho wa < a ( Baptist
preacher at Mollnc , III. , but that life grew
wearisome and he came west and went Into
the land bus ness In connection with the
Union Pacific railroad. He founded the town
of Gothcnbcrg In Dawson county , and fcr a
good many years owned most of the village.
Ho also went Into the Swedish colonization
business , and located a number of settle
ments of his countrymen In this country.
When going to Sweden after settlers It was
his custom to hire a brass band and take It
With him across the water , paying all ex-
pcnscu , and thus making an Imposing ap
pearance on the other side. He was fairly
prosperous In these undertakings and ac
cumulated propsrty valued at $200,000.
On July 7 his wife , Elizabeth , filed a peti
tion for divorce In the district court In this
county. She alleged that Olaf had been
unduly Intimate with the flowing bowl and
had also taken advantage of his abscnc ; In
the old country to supplant the caresses of
his wlfo with those who had no legal right
to receive them.
On July 14 Judge Walton made an order
In the case by which Olaf was directed to
pay $100 alimony Into court for the benefit
of his wife within ten days. At the expi
ration of nine days Mrs. Bergstrom's attor
neys went before Judge Scott and obtained
a writ of no exeat regna on the represen
tation that Bergstrom was about to leave the
state to avoid the order of Judge Walton.
Bergstrom was pretty smart , however , and
the sheriff was unable to flnd him , so the
writ has never been served.
In the cross bill filed yesterday Olaf
alleges that his wife has been a habitual
drunkard for ten years past. On their wed
ding day he took her to his home at Goth-
enberg , and she had no sooner arrived than
she sent for beer and whisky and proceeded
to accumulate a glorious Jag In honor of the
Before the marriage Elizabeth was a sort
of Swedish prlma donna , and after the ex
piration of two weeks of their honeymoon
she started out on a series of concert tours
which she kept up for two years , while Olaf
stayed at homo and supplied the money
to nil the vacuum In the financial side of the
project. Olaf states that during these trips
she drank to excess , and was even at times
so Intoxicated that she was unable to go on
He denies all the charges made In the
petition , and firther alleges that his wife
has been so violent for years that he has
been unable to live with her , and has al
ways provided her with money , which she
has spent for booze and In the society of
other men. According to his statements
she has spent most of his property , and
now he thinks that the least the court can
do Is to release him from the bonds that
have been a burden for many years.
They \Vnht Divorces.
A razor , " -toge'her with a lack of conjugal
affection , Is what has destroyed the marital
happiness of John and Angelina Plowman.
At least that Is what Angelina claims , and
she has appealed to the district court to pro
vide her with a divorce and her maiden
name. She asserts that within a year or
two after their marriage her husband became
so violent that she was compelled to.leave
him for fear of bodily harm , and that In
his frenzied moods ho Invariably got his
razor with the apparent purpose of carving
her Into submission.
Minna Getz asks for a divorce from her
husband , John Getz. She alleges cruelty
and desertion as sufficient reasons why she
should be free.
John J. Hanlghan has brought suit against
J. Herbert McCloster for $1,100.49 , Seven
hundred and fifty dollars of this amount
Is claimed as due on promissory .notes and the

Sounds "odd" but it fits the case precisely After , -
a destructive cyclone , you "clear the debris , " and to
wipe it. out of memory you must sweep it clean !
after a hurricane of business as it is customary to ;
the Nebraska it behooves us to "clear away the :
debris , " or , perhaps , more Bostonishly expressed , ' .
' 'To dismiss the superfluous conglomeration of unwelcome - ;
welcome accumulations. " ;
Right here in Omaha we call 'em odds and
ends good honest merchandise they arc to be
sure but of no value to us , because we never car
ry goods to next season and above all , -we never
begin a season on broken stock ,
You'll find , by carefully looking over , some
thing you can use , in every department and if it
be your style and fit there is a golden strike right
there because the price is likely one half what it
used to be or , perhaps a trifle above.
In our suit department we have a good many
broken lots of suits can't very well sell 'em down
to the root , because we have always such a tremendous
deus collection same case with the trousers de
partment for the same reason we have some rem
nants in our boys' and children's department and
iu our hat , department and in our shoe deparment
and more so in our men's furnishing stock in
shirts underwear and the like , where the supply
and demand is tremendous.
We firmly believe in cleaning house of broken
lots experience taught us so and we therefore
apply the broom of reduction , and dust off the last
vestige of profit and often below the price they
could be manufactured at.
