CONTEMPLATES NO VIOLENCE
President Kennedy Auum Police Chief
that Order Will Be Maintained.
STRIKERS DESIRE TO WIN PEACEABLY
Engineer and Flrrnra Sot Espected
to Take Hand in Strike at
This Time, bat Mar
Art Later On.
Chief of Police Donahue has become In
terested la the pending strike of Uninn
Psclflc employe. In rnpnriia to a rumor
of contemplated violence bjr the strikers
the chief yesterday called Into his office
President Kennedy of the Boilermakers'
union and others of that organization and
held a conference with tho men upon the
report which reached him the evening be
fore. This conference failed to develop any
evidence upon which to base such a re
port. The Information which first reached
Chief Donahue was that President Kennedy
himself had made certain threats against
any "scab" who would attempt to take the
place of a striking bollermaker at the Union
Pacific shops, and then this report was mod
ified by the chief's Informant to eay that
the threat was not made by President Ken
nedy himself, but by one of his associates
tn Kennedy's presence.
"There Is no syllable of truth In the re
port and whoever is the author of It has
either deliberately misrepresented facts or
lhas been Imposed on by some unreliable
party," said President Kennedy after his
conference with Chief Donahue.
Want to Win on Merit.
"We Intend to win this strike on its
merits," he continued, "and if we cannot
'win it that way then we will submit to de
feat, for one thing Is certain, we have never
threatened, contemplated or suggested re
porting to violence In any form to gain the
struggle. There has not been the remotest
jlatcntlon or thought of any forcible or un-
( lawful means on the part of the bollermak
jers, I can assure you, and I told the chief
the same. I am sure he was thoroughly
convinced that our sentiment bad been
Talsely represented to him.
"The bollermakers regret exceedingly
that any such report should have been cir
culated, for they have from the first tried
to conduct themselves in a manner to incur
the least criticism and give the Impression
to none that they wanted anything but
what they believed was just and fair. We
would a thousand times rather lose our
contest with the Union Pacific company
after a peaceable struggle than to win it by
violent means. This is our position, and in
all our councils we have urged against any
departure from it. I am positive that the
rumor which was carried to the chief of
police had n6 foundation in fact and was a
gross injustice to us."
A large contingent of Chief Donahue's
Hue coats assembled at the police station
at 2 yesterday afternoon in compliance
with an order, and after brief communica
tion with Captain Her, left for their re
spective beats. Among the policemen
present were some of the, oldest and most
prominent on the force.
. Asked If he had ordered the men to as
semble to receive instructions to guard
against violence by the strikers, Chief Dona
ue declared be had not.
Position of Engineers and Firemen.
I The strike situation proceeds slowly and
'(ftuletly. All the men interested are maln
jtalnlng strictest secrecy of any plans they
anay have. The engineers and firemen,
(whose meeting Monday night aroused some
suspicion of their Intention to bolt the
X7nlon Pacific's operations by refusing to
itake out engines not repaired by union
(bollermakers, are still at work (ml, accord
ing to Master Mechanic Barnum, tbere is
!do disposition on their part to strike.
I As a matter of fact, the engineers and
.Bremen would be acting prematurely to de
Jfclde to strike at this stage of the proceed
ings, for they have had no occasion as yet
jlto run engines that are repaired by non
union bollermakers, since there is but one
iauch individual In the employ of the com
pany and It would be Impossible for this
lone workman to repair the engines that
Vre now In service. The truth la, as haa
been stated, the company fortunately had
enough engines In good repair to meet Its
(seeds for a limited period when the union
bollermakers went out and this period has
not yet expired.
No engineer or fireman can be found who
,aylll accredit the alleged Intention of either
union to strike, yet there Is reason to be
lieve that both these brotherhoods may co
operate with the bollermakers and ma
chinists, should the atrlke reach a stage
Where full co-operation was demanded.
! Expect an Early Battlement.
According to the opinion of prominent
bollermakers themselves, this stage will
(never be reached. It Is their belief that
the strike will be ended and all questions
'settled within a week. They are still
'.convinced, however, that this settlement
Win be made favorable to their demands
nod that all their number will be restored
ito work. The bollermakers resolutely af
firm that they will never submit to the
partial reinstatement of their union; all
the men, old and young, must be taken
tack or none at all. "If the railroad can
Isjet along without part of our number, It
;an do so without any," was the way one
Boilermaker expressed It.
j The local bollermakers received word
yesterday from Armstrong, where it Is
ksala that some or tne m emDert or tneir
union had returned to work, that all are
gmt. and they assert that this la the case

conference yesterday, chiefly regarding the
proposition submitted by the car builders.
The statement was made after this con
ference that the whole subject called to
their attention by the car bulldera will re
ceive fullest consideration and a conclu
sion Is looked for very soon. Another con
ference will be held this morning.
Officials of the road protest that there Is
no ground for the alleged Intention of the
engineers and firemen to strike. The com
psny has a list of thirty-three engines In
first-class repair and ready for highest serv

could be drafted for ordinary use.
A meeting of the executive council of tho

WEIRD SCENEAT DEATH BED
Chinamen Chant Prayers as One of
Their Countrymen Passes
Surrounded by a dozen of his countrymen,
amid their weird cantatlon and prsyers,
Joe Lee, Chinaman, died at 3 yesterday
morning In bis room at 117 North Twelfth
street, after a long Illness of rheumatism.
Joe's condition became critical Monday
night and as It became known many of his
countrymen closed their places of business,
hastened to his bedside and remained until
the end. While a physician worked over
the sick man other Chinamen, who knew
nothing of Joe's condition, were asleep In
bunks in various parts of the room. These
were awakened by the lamentations of the
watchers over the death of Joe, and when
the undertaker arrived all were in the ut
most confusion. The dead man was laid
out on the floor and those of his country
men who had not been at his bedside when
the end came were berating themselves and
praying to the great spirit to forgive them.
The body was removed to the undertaking
rooms of Bralley & Porrance and all morn
ing Chinamen have been passing In and out
to view the remains. Joe's place of busi
ness has been locked and In front of the
door sits a silent watcher to see that none
enter. While it Is said that Joe was a
member of a protest&nt church, the China
men are making arrangements to have a
funeral according to their own belief. This
will occur at the undertaking rooms at I
o'clock Wednesday afternoon.
Joe Lee was 45 years of age and for thirty
years has been In the United States. He
was well known and was highly respected
by his countrymen. For a number of years
he has been running a cigar store at 117
North Twelfth street and Is said to have
amassed considerable money. He has a
wife and one child In China and haa made
frequent trips to his native land.
On and after Juno 15th, the Erie Rail

Bishop's Tribute to Reetor.
Testerday Coadjutor Bishop Williams
officiated at holy communion service at St.
Barnabas and prior to the service the
bishop delivered a brief address to the
people. In which he felicitated them upon
the long and harmonious pastorate of their
"There are three characteristics which
have marked the ministry of the rector of
St. Barnabas," said the bishop. "First,
Ms unflinching courage In declaring the
truth as a priest of Ood, without for a
moment considering either its popularity
In the eyes of the world or its effect upon
himself. Secondly, he has realized that
the saving of souls does not consist of a
fine church, a great parish house or In
fussy humanltarlsm, but hi personal minis
trations to sln-slck souls as a representative
of our Blessed Lord. Lastly, he has ex
emplified in his long rectorship of twenty-
five years the church's intention that the
pastoral relation and the life of the priest
should be co-extensive, that what Ood has
Joined together let no man put asunder."
John Williams Career.
John Williams was born In County Kerry,
Ireland, In 1835, and came to this country
when a young man, locating In Minnesota.
He was educated at Falrbault, Seabury
Hall, and shortly after finishing the course
there was called to Hastings, Minn., to offi
ciate as a deacon In the church at that
place. A few months later. In 1868, he was
ordained a priest by Bishop Whipple of
Minnesota, and at once took up the rector
ship of the Hastings church, continuing In
this capacity for ten years. It was during
this time that he received the call to St.
Barnabas. At first Rev. Williams was re
luctant to accept, deeming It his duty to
remain at Hastings, but two years later, the
summons having been Insisted1 upon mean
while, he came to Omaha, and twenty-five
years ago entered upon his present pastor
ate. The parish was then 8 years old,
Father Betts having been the first priest.
During all this time Rev. Williams has
not raised a cent for the maintenance of
his church through the medium of fairs, so
ciables or any sort of entertainment, as he
was opposed to this method of defraying
church expenses, and bas received only vol
STUDY INSTEAD OF PLAY
Many; Pablto School Paplls Are Not
Taking Their Regular
Records In the office of Secretary Burgess
of the Board of Education indicate that
many pupils of the Omaha schools are not
taking advantage of the summer vacation,
but are putting in their leisure time study
lng either at their homes or In summer
schools. Three hundred and seventy text
books have been loaned out since the vaca
tion began. Of these about one-third are
High achool books and the remainder are
from the grade schools. The pupil is re

a forfeit and when the book Is returned. It
it Is in good shape, the money is refunded.

This famous national park offers to the

through scenery hardly inferior to the park
Itself and this ride is one of ths many en
Joyments of the trip.
The new route to the Yellowstone Is via
the Union Paclflo and Oregon Short Line

BANKERS BEFORE 'THE BOARD
They Ask to Be Assessed as Low as
the Wholesale Estab
lishments. Representatives of the banks of Omaha
and South Omaha were before the County
Board of Equalization yesterday to do a
little dexterous pounding on the wholesale
houses. The glat of their complaint Is that
they are raying taxes on one-sixth the fair
value of their personal property, while the
wholesale houses are paying on about one
tenth the fair value of theirs.
Bankers Yates, Davis, Drake and others
appeared, with the attorneys of their es
tablishments, and there was an hour of
about as earnest conversation as the board
has yet had, the result being nothing more
tangible than a promise to duly consider the
matter later. One of the commissioners
said later to a representative of The Bee
that the desire of the bankers seemed to be
to have their assessments lowered to a level
with that of the wholesalers, but that if
the board acted at all In the matter it
would raise the wholesalers rather than
lower the bankers.
For several years the assessors have been
leaving the assessing of the bunks' personal
property to the board a custom which Is
said to have been Inaugurated at the re
quest of the bankers. The latter send the
board statements of their holdtngs and the
board bases the assessments on these.
Generally the form of these statements Is
similar to that Bled this year by the Omaha
National bank, which begins by relating
that the statement Is filed to help the
board "arrive at the value to be assessed
against the capital stock of said bank, and
which concludes with this table:
Capital stock Sl,0OQ,Qft0.flQ
Undivided profits 14,823.28
Less expenses (94.94,
I109.S2, 1308.19) 602.95 14,220.33
Less value of real es
tate in rwiujflaa
county as per at
The statement Is to apply to the condi
tions of April 1 and is attested April 21 by
C. F. McQrew as vice president.
JURY HAS THE ROWLEY CASE
Judge Gives Instructions to Consider
Only the Charge of
The case of the state against Martin Row
ley, former timekeeper at Armour's In
South Omaha, went to the Jury at 11 o'clock
The jury has only to decide If Rowley Is
guilty of forgery, as the Judge took the
case from It so far as the second count,
that of passing the check, was concerned.
The attorney for the defense used this as
a lever In argument to the Jury, declaring
that between the evidence in this count,
which had been considered insufficient, and
the evidence In the first count there was
only the difference of Charles Saylor's
statement that the endorsement on the
check shown In court was Rowley's, and
Baylor had not qualified as an expert on
handwriting. The attorney Instated, also,
that Rowley's reported admissions of guilt
be not considered, because it Is necessary
that the fact of crime having been com
mitted must be proved first, and this had
not, counsel said, been done.
NARROW ESCAPE FROM GAS
J. A. Gilbert Is Nearly Asphyxiated
at the City Dog
3. A. Gilbert, chief dog catcher to Im
pounder John Laughland, narrowly escaped
asphyxiation with a number of untagged
dogs Tuesday and is still suffering from
the effects. It happened in the gas cham
ber of the new Renalsaant dog pound at
Sixth and Webster streets. Fourteen dogs
were in the chamber. The charcoal gas
was In process of generation. One of the
large dogs seemed intent upon celebrating
his last hour by rending two or three of
the smaller ones and Mr. Gilbert entered
the big oven In the Interest of peace.
It took longer to accomplish his purpose
than ho thought and he miscalculated the
speed with which the gas was filling the
"He was limp as a rag when he came
oat," said Mr. Laughland, "and I had to
walk him up and down for some time to
keep him awake."

Wise-to-the-World Han Has Oppor

H. EL Newbranch, who for several years

about the verdant husbandman coming to

It hi understood from a reliable aource
that Mr. Newbranch "went against the
padlock racket." A detailed account of
how it happened and an emphatic denial
that delegates to the convention had any
thing to do with it, may be expected from
his facile pen in due time.
Police Officers A1 on Instrnctions
to Bring in Gambling;
Yesterday afternoon members of the police
force began a raid on the proprietors of
money-paying slot machines. A doten offi
cers were sent out with instructions to con
fiscate every money-paying machine they
could find. Chief Donahue received a report
yesterday that during the last few days
many machines had been shipped Into the
city and that boys and girls had been in the
habit of playing them. It was, for this
reason thst the raid Is being made, and it Is
ths intention of ' the police to confiscate
every such machine In the city.

TAX RAISERS READY TO ACT
Heal Estate Committee Will First Attack
Tive franchise Companies,
INTENDS TO WASTE NO TIME WITH THEM
Conference Between Committeemen
nd General Manager of Stock
Tarda aignlfles Another
The tax committee of the Real Estate ex
change has Its ammunition accumulated and
will begin Immediately the attack on the
county assessment of the five franchlsed
corporations of Omaha, the complaints to
be filed with the Board of Equalization
F. D. Weed, chairman of the committee,
said yesterday morning:
"We shall waste no time with them In
this Instance. They know we are fighting
for only what Is right and It Is outrageous
that they should seek to put straws In the
way of plain Justice after they were given
such a clear demonstration In the Instance
of the city assessment. If we get
them assessed by the county in
proportion to their assessment by
the city we shall be very well pleased,
particularly In view of the fact that In
pleading before the council some of them
sought immunity for large holdings that
they alleged were properly for county as
sessment. We kept such things In mind
and are prepared to uee them now. As an
Instance to the point, the wafer company
then said that its basin at Florence cost
$2,600,000, and yet in the returns of the
Florence sssessor we haven't noticed any
figure that seemed to Include one-sixth of
such a valuation.
Corporations Not Alone.
"The franchlsed corporations are not the
only ones to whom we are giving attention.
Our committee has been as active as possi
ble and we will be heard from. I will say
this much, however, that we find that the
ordinary stores, such as are found along
Douglas and Farnam streets, are assessed
well up In fact, nearly on a level with
From the fact that the tax committee
was In session at the Commercial club lato
Monday afternoon and gave audience to W.
J. C. Kenyon, general manager of the stock
yards company, and his attorney, it is In
ferred that that corporation Is on the
griddle Just now. It was assessed at $16,
600, yet It has Issued $5,760,000 of its $6,000,
000 capital stock and the deduction for real
estate could not possibly bring the figure
down to $16,600. The situation seems to be
that the tax committee has determined to
strike for an assessment that makes Mr.
Kenyon gasp for breath, and he atka a little
time for contemplation.
Remark Signifies Big Boost.
What the figure Is the committee does not
give out at this time, but a hint of Its pro
portion was suggested by one of the com
mittee members, who remarked that "when
a man discovers that it Is proposed to boost
the assessment of the property be rep
feseuls to ten or twelve lluies the return
of the assessor be naturally has to have a
day or two to compose himself before he 1b

For a few days there has been a pro

FIFTY CENTS 0NTHE DOLLAR
Amount of Dividend Expected by
Creditors of Contlnnental
There will be a meeting of the creditors
of the Continental Clothing company Jul
1 at the office of Charles E. Clapp In the
Bee building for the purpose of electing a
trustee for the property of the bankrupt
The temporary receiver appointed by the
United States district court has disposed of
the stock and fixtures and has collected
a large part of the outstanding accounts,
so that all there remains for the trustee to
do is to declare a dividend. Around this
dividend there bangs considerable mystery,
as the amount of cash which will be on
hand Is unknown and there is no certainty
as to the amount of claims which will be
proved according to the United States
This uncertainty Is due to the. fact that
under the law every creditor who desires to
participate In the distribution of the assets
of the company will have to return to the
trustee all money paid him on account by
the bankrupt within four months of the
time the bankruptcy was declared. The ac
counts of the Continental Clothing com
pany show that within the last four months
a considerable number of tbe creditors had
received some money on account. In many
instances the amount received would be
practically as much as would come to them
from the distribution, and It is believed
that a number will not prove their ac
counts, preferring to keep what they have
received rather than to go to the expense
and trouble of making proof. It is ex
pected that the funds realized will permit
a dividend of 60 cents on tbe dollar.
Too Great m fllasu
In almost every neighborhood someone
has died from sn attack of colto or cholera
morbus, often before medicine could Zi
procured or a physician summoned. A re
liable remedy for these diseases should bs
kept at hand. The risk Is too great for
anyone to take. Chamberlain's Colto,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy has un
doubtedly saved the lives of more people
and relieved more pain and suffering than
any other medicine In use. It can always

Wratt Johnson Wants Burlington
Road to Settle for Losing
Wyatt Johnson says he has a $500 griev
ance against the Burlington railroad and
he has petitioned tbe county court to let
him tell about it and get a Judgment for
the amount named.
Wyatt says he entrusted $300 worth of
his earthly assets to the Burlington for
transportation to St. Joseph, which is a
town in Missouri, but that the Burlington
failed to deliver the goods, notwithstanding
he was able and cheerfully willing to pay
the freight. He files a schedule of the
contents of the boxes shipped and the as
sortment Is somewhat diversified. Including
a cashmere dress snd some teaspoons, fifty
minister's certificates and a rubber stencil,
one church charter, twenty duplicate
church charters and one craxy quilt.
Brewed from Bohemian Hops.
