Councilman Henry Mies was placed under
arrest yesterday on a warrant Issued
from Justice. Levy's court charging him
with selling liquor without a license on
Labor Hay at Syndicate park. Mr. Mies Is
agent for the South Omaha brewery. John
Van Wle swore out the complaint Van Wle
has been aftir the brewery for some time.
Ho and Biles fell out over the payment of
the license for a saloon that Van Wle was
running. Van Wle wis finally closed up and
since that time he has been making It hot
for the brewery management.
Mies says tint the whole proceeding is a
case of blackmail ; that he had nothing to do
with the saloon stand at the park and that
It was run by the labor organizations.
Several cases are now pending In the same
court against men who handle the South
Omaha beer.

General AValkmit ot Textile ttcirhcrs at
lull Jilvcr.
FALL RIVER , Mai > s , Sept. 15 The spin
ners and weavers' associations both held
crowded meetings this afternoon , and as a
result 3S.OOO textile operatives ot this city
are practically on strike. The spinners held
a special general meeting In Cnrrollton hall
and voted to strll.c.
The executive committee recommended
that the strike allowance bo reduced from
35 to Jl per week , nnd after the second
week to $3 , until further action be taken.
The weavers' association nlso held a big
meeting this morning. The weavers voted
to continue the vacation until the old
wages ure restored , but as they refused to
go to work under the present rates they are
virtually on a strike. There was no debate
at the meeting. The recommendation of the
textile amalgamated committee that nil
operatives keep away should nn nttempt
be made to start Monday was adopted
unanimously. The operatives of the King
Phillip mill , who have been on a strike tor
ssvtral weeks , were granted half strike
pay for the last three weeks. U was de
cided to appropriate $1,000 a week from the
fui ds ot the union to be illsli Ibuted nmong
the needy members
The strike of the spinners will force over
half the mills to shut down , even should the
wc&vers decide to go to work. The opinion
among Ili3 operatives Is thnt the manufac
turers will start up In a short time at the
old rates.

Science will today cause an Innovation
In church service In Omaha. At the cele
bration of the Lord's supper at the West-
nlnster Presbyterian church this morning
ndlvldual communion cups will be used.
On account of the germ theory of dis
ease , nowBO generally accepted as a true
one , It Is considered very deleterious to the
lealth of communicants to follow the old
system ot passing the same cup to n large
number of persons. Learned physicians ,
after carefully considering the matter , have
recently announced their conclusion that
many diseases , such as consumption , catarrh ,
cancer and the Ilk" , can be , and probably
lave been , transmitted In this way For
these reasons many churches have adopted
the Individual cup plan In the distribution
of the wine. The first church to
do so was the "Crick church" In
Rochester. N. Y. , a few years
ago. It was followed by the First Baptist
of that city and later the custom was
adopted by n , large number ot congregations
in the east , particularly In New York and
Brooklyn , nnd though the plan is by no
means general , It nevertheless has been
adopted so extensively that Individual com
munion sets arc now a part of the stock of
all houses furnishing church supplies.

Major Clarkson returned yesterday from
the grand encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic at Plttsburg as full of enthu
siasm and praise for everybody and every
thing ha saw as It is possible for a man to
"Plttsburg , " said the major , "Is a most
delightful town and the citizens fairly turned
th'inselves loose , and such magnificent hos
pitality as was extended us on every hand
v.i& something not met with many times In
a lifetime.
'It was an occasion when a man was espe
cially proud of having- been a soldier. The
whole city was most gorgeously decorat'd ,
for as you know , It is one of the most loyal
towns In the country. Courtesies were show
ered upon us from the tmo | we landed until
the labt moment befoie dtparture.
"The reception uu > t Wednesday evening
was the grandest , most elaborate affair I
ever attended. The Westlnghouse electric
light buildings were where the princely affair
was held. These buildings are among the
largest In the world , being900 feet long by
COO wide. All the delegates to the encamp-
msnt and their ladles were there , making a
throng of something like 8,000 or 10,000 people
ple , and everything was as Iridescent as n
sun-klps-ed glacier , with sublime music , danc
ing and a banquet for the gods. Friday the
delegates and their ladles were given n trip
down the river on three gaily bedecked
steamers. We went to Homestead and went
over the famous Carnegie Iron works. It was
a most enjoyable and profitable trip But
the parade Tuesday that was Incomparable ,
Indescribable. The streets were one Jam of
eager , excited and joyous people a wonder
ful sight , but marching was extremely labor
ious Indeed ; the Jam was fairly concrete
There Is a monotony , of course , about these
pirades Of the old soIdUre , but there Is
somethingtouchlngly beautiful about them ,
too , something that plays on one's heart
strings In spite of everything. Probably It
Is the unquenchable fires of patriotism re-
nv-akenod In one's breast. Think of aclng
those grizzled old heroes , some on crutches ,
Eomo armless , others hobbling along In the
last stages of decrepitude , but bound to
march all the same bound to one : more get
in line. Yes , the encampment was a glorious
thing , and Plttsburg Is a glorious city. "
