Afl evidences nt a strike , on the Machinery
buiidlng nt the exposition grounds have dls
nppcared. Twenty-five carpenters wcro t
work yesterday and the building pre
sented an animated appearance. Contractor
Hamilton stated that a carload ot Iron which
liuil been delaying1 tbo work had arrive J and
would tc unloaded at once. The largo posts
which will support the roof trusses were
being framed by a force of men , and the bo'.U
Jn the car in question will bo ufaIn \ these
pests. The delay In receiving this Iron has
interfered with the erection of the central
dome which will form the main entrance of
thin building and thin work will bo pushed
nt the sumo time thnt the root Is being put
Referring to the strike , Mr. Hamilton said
that thn strlko committee had misrepre
sented somewhat In saying that he was the
only contractor on the ground who was stand-
log out against the demands of the car
penters. Ho pioduccd a card on which
nppcared the Hlgnaturc of W. H. Pnrrlsh ,
contractor of the Liberal Arts building , under
a atitcmcnt to the effect that ho had no In
tention of paying carpenters n ifiat rate of 30
centa per hour or ot working eight hours per
day on ll-e Liberal Arts building. Mr. Hamil
ton said this wns a direct contradiction of
the statement reported to have been made by
tl.p strlko committee that Mr. I'arrlsh would
agree tn tilt demands. He nlso stated that
P. J. Crccclon , contractor fur the Auditorium ,
had told him that ho would not employ a
union man If bo knew him to be such.
"Them are some men employed by mo who
am being paid .10 cents per hour and others
who are not getting that much. Some ot the
work is of such a character that almost nny-
ono can do It , and there Is no money tn payIng -
Ing high prices tor work that a cheap man
can do just as welt. I have an entire new
force with the exception of two men , who
havu been taken back and two or three who
did not strike. I have a better furco than
before , and will not consider any proposition
whl"h would rompel mo to dlsdiargo thcso
"I um satisfied , " continued Mr. Hamilton ,
"that if this matter is settled by giving In to
the carpenters , that they would .soon find
something else to strlko for. They think that
If they can force the eight-hour rule the sur
plus labor would be absorbed. The next thing
thby would do would be to strike for 40 cents
per hour. I dove learned from good author
ity that some of the leading men' among the
carpenters have- boasted that they would get
60 cents an hoiir out of the exposition before
the work U finished. I believe that this
thing must bo met , und i am In favor of
blngins U. to an Issue at once and having
It settled. "

Yesterday was "Rally day" in tJio public
schools of Omaha ami Nebraska. The day was
designated , at the request of the Women's
'Board ' ot Managers of the exposition , ns the
occasion In which the contributions of the
children toward the erection of the Boys'
and Girls' building should be banded In. A
number of handsome prizes have been pro
vided which will be awarded to the schools
thnt make the best showing In the competi
tion. Any contributions that were not handed
In yoatardtty will not bo considered In the
competition. No reports have yet been re
ceived In regard to the success of the plan In
the schools , but from the Interest that has
been manifested by the children and ttielr
parents It Is expected that the aggregate re
sult of the Cay's contributions will reach a
very respctable sum.

JUDGES QUIT THEIR JOBS

MIMIC PAL COURT GOES OUT OF BUSINESS

In obedience to tlio decision of the supreme
court the municipal court , which has
occupied quarters on the fourth floor of the
city hall for scvur.it months past , turned up
Its official toes yesterday ami Judges
Magney , Wnro anil Durnam and Clerk
Cosgrovo became plain everyday citizens.
TIic decision that the law by which the court
was created was unconstitutional was some
what unexpected to the Judges , who had con-
fldcntly anticipated that the supreme court
would take a different view of the case.
Nevertheless , they promptly proceeded to
pack up their papers and by the middle of
the forenoon their offices In the city hall
wore dcoertcd. They turned the keys over to
Custodian Sodgwlck and passed down nnd
out. taking with them only their pcrsoual
papers and tl.o Judicial prefix which con-
sltutcd the only souvenir of their brief
enjoyment of the Judicial prerogative. The
city ofllcliils , who were removed to less com
modious quarters to make room for the
municipal court , will be allowed to move back
to their old ofUcca , as 'the ' dissolution , of the
new court haa been complete.
In regard to thu litigation that lias been
adjudicated by the court during Its brief
Icuse of life there la likely to bo an em
barrassing controversy. The Judges unite In
the assertion that whllo the cases that still
remain ou their dockets will hive to betaken
taken to eonio other court the judgments
that have been rendered will stand. City
Attorney Conncll Is equally positive that no
act of the municipal court will have force ,
now that the law by which It was created
hus been declared unconstitutional. He as
serts that In the light ot yesterday's decision
the municipal court has had no more power
to deliver judgments than , any moot court
that might bo organized In a law school. lie
says that all the cases that have been tried
before the municipal Judges represent an
absolute waste of time and that the Judg
ments rendered are not worth the papei they
are written on. As parties who have obtained
favorable decisions will be anxious that those
decisions should stand , while others will bo
equally desirous that they should be
nullified , the validity ot the transactions of
the municipal court while the question ot Its
constitutionality was pending will probably
be made an Issue In the district court. This
question U also Important to the officers of
the Abolished court In that It Involves their
right to collect the fees from which their
salaries arc to be paid.
The dissolution of the municipal court Is
particularly gratifying to the Justices ot the
peace , whoso emoluments ot olllco were il-
most entirely taken away by that tribunal.
The great bulk ot the business Wwt has pre
viously been adjudicated in justice court bis
either been taken to the municipal court or
held In abeyance until the question of con
stitutionality was settled. The effect of the
decision lr to Immediately throw the entire
volume of this litigation back Into the justice
courts and the justices have prospects of all
the business that they ca'n attend to for some
time to come.
The eflcct Is also visible In the county
court , from which fully three-fourths of the
civil business had been transferred by the
municipal court law. Since the now court
bis been In operation the civil business In
county court haa been so light that the fees
.havo not been sufficient to pay the expenses ,
but now It Is expected that the volume of
business will return to the former standard.

American exponent ot the romantic drama. "
as the play bill modestly claims , he Is at

comes this acajou after n year or two of

either to Increase the number of agree'ablc
compliments or to encourage fond bxpes of
Mr. MantcM's development. The piece Is tin-
work of one \V. A. Tremayne , and Is called
"A Secret Win-ant. " The time Is that of
the financiering schemes of John Low , antl
the scene France. "A Secret Warrant" Is
full 'of people rushing In and out of doors ,
uttering platitudinous sentiments , calling
ono another "Mosseer , " escaping noisily on
horseback and doing all sorts of things at
the stroke of the clock. Hands readily find
their way to rapiers and God Is frequently
adjured to sivo the dramatis personae from
the unfortunate situation Into which their
own folly or the evils of villains have led
them. The piece Is not well constructed , well
written nor , save by two or three of the
members of the company , well played.

The announcement that J. Plerpont Morgan
Is negotiating tor the Icaso ot the Kansas
Pacific to the Chicago ft. Alton tor a long
term of years created a little flurry In rail
road circles bore. Nothing official lias
been received or Is expected on the matter
by the management of the Union 1'aclflc In
thl city. A representative of the Union Pa
cific , In speaking of the matter yesterday ,
said : "There have been so many rumors to
the effect tb/H the Altoa would absorb the
Kansas Pacific that ono scarcely knows how
to take this report. We know nothing about
It hero. "
Other railroaders regard the report as prob
ably correct. The Chicago & Alton has for
a long time operated through sleeping and
chair cars from Chicago to Denver , via Its
own line to Kansas City nnd over the Kan
sas Pacific from tluro to Denver. This Is a
fast train , and the service has always been
regarded as exceptionally good. The train
Is the fastest between Chicago nnd Denver ,
via Kansas City. This through service over
the Alton and the Kansas Pacific has brought
the lines closely together , and that they
should form a clcso compact and bo absorbed
under ono management la a report that Is

of the Kansas Pacific , which was to have
taken place Thursday , until Thursday. De
cember 1C. The greatest fear ot the Union
Pacific reorganization committee has been
that congress , assembling before the date
fixed for the sale of the Kansas Pacific ,
would take up the matter nnd seriously Inter
rupt the committee's carefully laid plans.
The kaso to the Chicago & Alton would al
together change matters. As pointed out
by well posted railroad men here , such a
lease would place the Kansas Pacific In the
hands of J. Plerpont Morgan , , but through
another medium than the Union Pacific reor

The suit ot the Evans heirs of Arapahoe
county , Colorado , against the receivers of the
Union Pacific for the recovery of certain
lands In dispute Is engaging the attention
of the United States circuit court and of
representatives ot the government , of the
Union Pacific , and ot Its reorganization com
mittee at St. Paul. Those who left
hero Thursday to be present at the hearing
before Judge Walter Sanborn nt St. Paul
were : General John C. Cowln , special
counsel for the government ; AVIlllara H.
Kelly , general solicitor for the Union Pa
cific , and Wlmslow S. Pierce , attorney , and
Lawrence W. Greer , assistant attorney , for
the Union Pacific's reorganization committee.
The suit Is ot Importance at this tlmo
because of Its possible effect on the con
firmation of the Union Pacific foreclosure
sale. The plaintiffs In the suit originally
asked that an Injunction against the sale -bo
granted. Now It is asked that the sale
held here the early part of the present week
bo not confirmed. The dispute Is over lands
which Green , a director of the Union Pacific ,
Denver & Gulf railroad , Is alleged to have
sold to himself. 'His attorneys. Teller and
Smith , appeared before Judge Sanborn
yesterday to defend bl # rights to the lands
which would bo adversely affected were the
sale to be confirmed.
It Is not regarded as probable that the
suit of the Evans heirs will In any way In
terrupt the Union Pacific foreclosure pro
ceedings. Any Interruption of the confirma
tion of the sale will be vigorously opposed by
the representatives of the Union Pacific and
of the reorganization committee. It was the
news of this suit that was sprung by those
opposing the foreclosure Hilo of the Union
Pacific , Just before the sale was made , as
certain evidence that the sale would not be
held. It Is to this suit that those opposed
to the Union Pacific sale now look for an
Interruption of the confirmation. The con
sensus of opinion among those most familiar
with the foreclosure proceedings Is that they
will not be Interrupted nor the confirmation
Krom St. Paul , Wlnslow S. Pierce , attor
ney , and Lawrence W. Grecr , assistant attor
ney ot the Union Pacific reorganization com
mittee , will proceed to New \orit , wnero tne
offices of tbo committee are located.
