SITUATION IN THE WEST.
Shops All C'lcnodV < nt oC Chryimno but
Iliinlnctb Continues to Improve.
J. H. McConncll , superintendent of motive
power and machinery of the Union Pacific ,
has returned from a tour of Inspection over
the system. He reports everything swim
ming along nicely nnd no trouble anywhere.
Ncne of the company's shops , however , are
running west of Cheyenne. All the men
discharged , so deserving , have been furnished
with transportation to the end of the line ,
Many of them absolutely refused to work
and the shops were shut up. At a number
of places along the line they were given
the opportunity to go to work again , but in
many places they all refused ; but neverthe
less thu company Is getting along most satis
factorily with the movement and having
no trouble or hindrance in any form west
of Cheyenne to Huntlngton , in the Wyoming
and Idaho divisions.
"Quite a number of men have left for
other points. The effect of the action of
these who , In obedience to their respective
organizations , quit work , " observed General
Manager Dickinson , "was to effectually stop
the company's source of revenue and made
It Impossible for the receivers to earn money
with which to pay them. Troops are still
stationed at Laranile , Ogden , Pocatello ,
Rawllns , Evanston , Lima and Butte. At
the latter place only has the force been re
duced , four companies coming In from that
point this morning. "
Hoontlng the Hot .Spring * .
Big reductions of fare to Hot Springs , S.

Information to parties wishing to make this
grand trip. Pamphlets giving complete in
formation will be mailed to any address by
applying to the general passenger agent of
the Fremont , Elkhorn & Missouri Valley rail
road , this city. _
Kntors mi Emphatic Dental.
In regard to the telegraphic charges that
the Union Pacific Is demoralizing the Pacific
coast passenger trade , General Passenger
Agent Lomax emphatically denies cogni
zance of any such charges. Nothing In this
respect has been received at headquarters
hero and It Is regarded as simple buncomb.
The Union Pacific never has , nor does In
any manner Intermeddle with the Pacific
coast business , and the allegations are made
from whole cloth.

Short 1'ollco Stories
A complaint has been filed with the police ,
accusing the boys of the western part of
the city with bathing In a pool at Forty-
sixth and I'arker streets , to the great an
noyance of people residing in that vicinity.
The mounted ofllccrs will lay for and arrest
E. F. Sheafe , a rental agent , writes the
chief of police that boys and men arc travelIng -
Ing about the city , stealing doors and windows
dews from unoccupied houses , and at the
same tlmo tearing out the lead pipe and
plumbing. He asks for protection. The
chief has Issued an order to the dny and
night men. Instructing them to arrest all
parties found loitering about vacant dwel
lings or store buildings.
Wheiii Lally , the pickpocket , was arrested
Chief Seavey was of the opinion that the
man was wanted In Chicago , and at once
wrote the officials of that city. Yesterday the
chief received a reply to his letter , the in
formation being that the man was not needed
In the city by the lake , as he had paid the
penalty for the crime which he had com
mitted , having been arrested In 188S and
sent to the penitentiary for a term of four
Byron Grant , a man G5 years of ago , re
siding at 1004 North Twenty-second street ,
left his home Friday morning , telling his
wlto that ho was coming down town to hunt
for work. Ho had not returned at noon yes
terday , and his wife feels sure that he has
met with some accident , or else that he has
been foully dealt with. When leaving the
bouse ho stated that he would return In a
couple of hours. Mr. Grant was not ad
dicted to drink , and his family relations were
very pleasant. _

The biennial encampment of the Knights
of Pythias opens In Washington , D. C. , on
August ' 28 , and < a good program Is being
prepared to 'entertain .tho visitors. A big
crowd Is expected from all over the coun
try. Nebraska's contingent , however. Is not
very promising at present. Arrangements
had been made to run two special trains ,
one from the South Platte country over the
Burlington , the other from the North Platte
country , over the Northwestern. These two
trains were to have met at Chicago , and
from there the trip was arranged over the
Baltimore & Ohio. The return was to have
been made over the Chesapeake & Ohio. A
big contingent was confidently expected. But
the persistent hard times , together with
the drouth that has been visiting the state ,
have set back these expectations and every
thing Is now In a very unpleasant state of
Indeflnltencss. Pushers of the excursion
arc praying for rain , for in that case It Is
thought that a respectable crowd can be
still got together. ' "
Besides these obstacles , another lies In
the way. The railroads have made a rate
of one fare for the round trip , with a fifteen
days' limitation and without stop over privi
leges. Not only the rate , but the limitations
and restriction are unfavorably viewed by
knights , who 'will not go unless these are
removed. The Omaha knights have decided
In conjunction with those of Missouri , Kan
sas and Iowa , not to attend the encamp

On Saturday , July 28 , Myrtle division No ,
3 , Uniform Rank Knights of Pythias , was
reorganized with a membership of sixty-five
well drilled and well uniformed Sir Knights.
There Is a prospect of changing the name
to Banner division and of making the di
vision a battalion In Itself. At least such
a scheme met the most enthusiastic approv.il
of the meeting. Last Tuesday Black Ragle
division No. 17 met and disbanded , with the
Intention of becoming a part of the new di
vision. Twenty-eight discharges were Is
sued. General H. S. Hotscklss , commander
Nebraska brigade , was present at both meet-
Ings. The Intended change received his
hearty support , as well as that of Major
Goncr.il Carnahan , commander-ln-chlef of the
Uniform Rank Knights of Pythias. It Is the
deslro and hope of Omaha knights to put
Omaha where she belongs In the order ,
namely , at the top , and the new move Is a
step In that direction.

The next Important labor meeting I
Omaha will bo the local labor conference t
bo held In Knights of Labor hall Snturdn ;
'evening , August 11 , to which all labor or
ganlzatlons In Omaha and South Omah
are Invited to send five delegates each.
The object of the meeting , as stated b ,
the leaders of the movement , Is to unite th
labor forces of Douglas county nt the ballo
box at the coming election , and before the ;
can bo united It Is argued that they mils
ngreo upon the demands to bo made of th
At this meeting they hope to come t
scmo agreement about whnt amendment
to the city chnrtcr nro desired , nnd nlso ti
agree , If possible , upon a scries of bills ti
bo introduced In the state legislature.
In speaking about this ono of the promoters
motors of the movement snld : "There nro i
great many of the unions that have clause ;
In their constitutions which prevent then
from taking nny part whatever In polltlca
affnlrs , but there Is nothing to prevent nl
of the labor organizations from sending dele
gates to a conference to advise together ant
try to agree upon some line of action to sc
cure the laws badly needed for the worklni
people. It Is not the Intention , as I un
dcrstnnd It , to put up candidates or any
thing of that kind , All we propose to do I :
to see how far we can agree toward votlnt
for reform laws. I feel certain that nil wll
concede that we wnnt to abolish the contrac
system on nil public works and substitute tlu
day's labor system. This would bo n greal
saving to the taxpayers , give the public bet
ter material and better work nnd at the
same tlmo give the worklngmrn bcttct
wages. This is one of the things that we
can all surely agree upon , and without
doubt all of the delegates will
favor the passage of a good
arbitration law , If ono can be drawn that
will stand. There will b * no trouble either
In agreeing upon some method to stop the
competition with convict labor , which Is demanded -
manded by nil of the labor organizations.
It Is my opinion that If we can agree upon
nbout foui * or five measures and pledge our
selves to stand together nnd vote for men
who espouse labor's just demands we will
have no trouble In getting candidates to
assist us In securing whatever we agree
upon. There can bo no chance for this con
ference to be controlled by cliques , as each
organization will elect five delegates , and If
they choose good , representative.worKlng . -
men it will bo truly a representative work-
Ingman's conference. "
Several of the organizations which held
meetings last week chose representatives
and others will elect delegates before the
date of the conference. If all the unions
elect delegates , ns is now expected , there
will bo about 240 representatives at the
Knights of I.iihor Social.
The following Is the program for the
Knights oC- Labor social to bo held tomor
