CITY FACES AMEAT FAMINE
Chicago Suffers as "Resolt of Ike
Packing; Hoaae Teamsters'
CHICAGO, May 28. Chicago' beef sup
ply from the stock yard ha been almost
entirely cut off and unless tha concessions
demanded- by the striking teamsters are
granted within the next day or two tha city
will ba face to face with a meat famine,
Tha big packer failed In every attempt
to smuggle meat out of tha yards, but
wholesale and retail butcher who usually
drive their own wagon and take out loads
of provisions have been forbidden to do ao
In tha future. A number of them today
were allowed to carry away stuff that they
had bought of tha packer, but they were
warned not to return for any mora until
the trouble la settled.
As a result there is a movement on foot
among the 1.200 or mora butohera of Chi
cago to cloaa their ahopa for a week or two,
or as long a may be necessary to defeat
the packera In their fight against tha team
stera. Most of them declare that they ara
In sympathy with tha strikers and feel that
topping the sale of beef would ba the most
effective way -to help tha teamsters. No
anions have yet declared a sympathetic
strike, but many Individual members have
been doing all In their power to aid the
teamatera, and If the present situation con
tlnuea much longer It la asserted In union
circle -that other locals, such a the lea
and coal men, may join tha teamsters. Six
of the firms today met tha demands of tl
strikers and algned the new scale, but the
big concerns are still defiant.
Railway Notes aad Persoaala.

because all the new furniture and fixtures
will not be ready In time for the opening.
It Is all being made to order, and will be

MORE WORK FOR ASSESSORS
Labor Commissioner Wants Them to Comply
with Law of 1897.
STATISTICS ABOUT ADULT POPULATION
l aires the Assessors Gather the De
aired Data at Once Mandamus
Properdins. Will Be Taken
There Is being tualled from the county
clerk' office a letter to each of the twenty-
nine assessors of Douglas county advising
him to report at the office next Saturday at
10 o'clock to hear the Instructions of the
county attorney concerning the collection
of statistic which Deputy Labor Commis
sioner C. E. Watson has demanded. 1
Tha county attorney will tell the assessors
that unless they collect the desired data
he will be obliged to bring mandamua pro
ceedings and compel them to do so. The
task Is a large one, and there may be
trouble, as some doubt exists as to the
ability of the assessors to collect extra pay
for the work. The confusion has arisen as
a result of the tardiness of the supreme
court's decision In a recent test case.
Text of the Law.
Since 1897 there has been a Nebraska
statute (section 7, chapter xxxlx b) which
At the time of the assessment of prop
erty for taxation for county and state
purposes) It shall be the duty of the town
ship and precinct aeseseors to enroll the
names of all persons over 21 years of age
In tnelr respective townships or precincts,
together with their several occupations. If
farmers or manufacturers, the product of
their several farms or factories during the
past year, and If wage workera, the time
they nave been employed during the past
year and the wages they have received for
the same. It shall be the duty of the
county clerk on or before the first day of
July in each year to forward a summary
of such reports of their respective counties
to the State Bureau of Labor. The deputy
commissioner of iRbor shall compile such
reports and shall embody them in his bien
nial report to tne governor.
It is aald that a report for Douglas county
wa compiled the year the law became
effective and that the commissioner aent
back word from Lincoln that It waa the
best received there, but It is said that since
that time none has been prepared, aa there
waa a test case pending before the supreme
court, based on the allegations of a de
fendant assessor that the statute wa un
constitutional because the bill contained
more than one subject, a subject not In tha
title and attempted to amend an act to
which It wa not germaln.
Supreme Court's Decision.
When the Douglas county assessor' be
gan their work May 1 the court' decision
had not been rendered, but Deputy Com
missioner Watson wrote, advising that the
assessors collect the desired statistics
anyhow, and County Clerk Miller repeated
tha advice, but It Is understood that the
assessors have not done as Instructed. The
supreme court has recently handed down
lta opinion sustaining the constitutionality
of tha statute, and yesterday Deputy
Watson telephoned from Lincoln to the
county clerk that ha would insist on hav
Ing the information and would Instruct
the county attorney to bring mandamua
proceedings If necessary.
