Want Workmen to Prosper.
We want to deal gently and fairly, aa I

roughly or treat them harahly. It baa been
and will continue to be the purpose of thia
company to be considerate of Ita employee"
intereata, and In this controversy we ahall

places of cur mQ with beautiful lawnt and
make everything aa pleasant and Inviting
as potalble. We want good men to come
back, and we'll see that they are pros
perous." Mr. Burt and Mr. Dickinson bad just
been asked If the etrlke which formally
began yeaterday morning waa complete over
the system when a telegram waa brought
In and given to Mr. Dickinson. It was
from Evanaton, Wyo., and said that the
machinists and helpers In the shops there
refused to obey the order Issued yesterday
morning and were still at work.
"That looks like a break In the ranks
of the strikers," waa suggested.
"Yes, and do you know," replied Presi
dent Burt, "that right here In our Omahn
shops we have forty-three men at work?
I gueaa you hal never heard of that, had
you? Well. It is fact, for Mr. Dickinson,
Mr. McKeen and myself have Just returned
from there, were there since this strike
was supposed to have been Issued at 10
o'clock and we found these men at work
and highly pleased ao far as we could tell."
Mr1. Dickinson, confirming the statement
made by Mr. McKeen Saturday and pub
lished In The Bee, aleo stated that the com
pany has enough men In all Us shops to
perform all necessary work.
"The toad baa not Buffered In any depart
ment, nor do w apprehend any suffering
from this strike," he said.
No Sew Men Hired.
"Has the company taken any steps to fill
the placea made vacant by the atrlkera and
those who were discharged?" waa asked the
"Well, as to that I don't know that we
care to speak," waa President Burt's reply.
"But," said Mr. Dickinson, "It may be
said that no men have been hired or im
ported, and In fact no definite action taken."
"What do you think will be the outcome
of this strike?" was asked President Burt.
He answered It by asking: "What do you
During the period of the Interview an
other telegram was handed to General Man
ager Dickinson. It came from Cheyenne
and brought Information that a bollermaker
named Carlson, who refused to Join the
strikers, had been assaulted on his way
boms from the shops.
From a tabulated statement of the differ
ent acalea of wages paid by the varloua
western railroads to their shopmen, boiler
makers snd machinists In particular, It Is
evident that the Union Pacific pays the
highest of any road except the Southern
Pacific. In many caaes It Is far In excess
of other roads.

STRIKE NOT COMPLETE YET
lome Machinist! and Helpers. Have Refused
to Walk Out
UNION LEADER IS NOT DISAPPOINTED
Vice President Wilson Hays It Will
Take Several Days to Oet ilea
la laaller Places Or
aalsed. The strike of the Union Pacific ma
chinists, which was formally declared at
10 o'clock yesterday morning, did not atart
out with the vtra that was anticipated and
before night had received some-serious
blows. The strike Is not complete. At
Evsnston the men refused to quit work,
st Ofeen River they voted not to go out
and at Rawlins four of the thirteen orig-
nai number remslned at work.
But the meet vital setback to the strik
ers cams at Cheyenne, where the least dis
couragement had been looked for, as only
few days sgo ths eompsny discharged
all Its men sod closed Its shops. At 6:30
p. m., when the whistle blew, there were
about ISO mechanics on the eompsny's pay
roll snd it Is reported that the company
will Increase this number.
Reports from Cheyenne Indicate little
hopefulness for ths strikers. The belief
is thst the tleup will, fall, as the majority
of machinists are said to be favorable to
the piece-work system, by which they be
lieve tbey csn earn more money than under
the daily-wage scale.
Communications were opened up with the
various divisions by the company authori
ses, aa well as the strikers and through
out the day both sides were in close
touch with the entire field of operations.
Each fsctlon was claiming a victory up to
ast night. The strikers declare they have
no doubt of the outcome, while the company
sure the strike will be settled in its
favor becsuse, as it holds, It la in the
Armstrong Dlapated Territory.
Armstrong Is a disputed territory. Ad
vices to the company officials during the
day were to the effect that only half the
men there had gone out: This being one
of the three largest places on the system,
the officials found special encouragement In
the situation there. Upon the other hand
the strikers at 6 o'clock last evening were
claiming Armstrong. A representative of
the machinists stated that word had come
that all the machinists and helpers at Arm
strong hsd quit.
The only two machinists at the Council
Bluffs roundhouse, and also two at the
trsnsfer shops there, are said to have
truck early In the day. The men at Grand
Island had not quit and there was no sign
of their quitting up to noon, according
to reports received st headquarters.
President Burt and General Manager
Dickinson both stated Jhat they did not
look for the men in the smaller places to
co-operate with the rest of the strikers.
They believe that they will remain at
work and thua tho backbone of th strike
be seriously weakened.
Cempsay Claims Eassgh Men.
The claim of the official le, as expressed
by President Burt himself, that the com
pany has enough "men" at every station on
the road to carry on tb necessary work,
In the Omaha shops, where tie striker
claim a complete shut-down. President
Burt says there are forty-three men at
work and that there la no Indication of
further trouble. Neither the officials nor
the strike leaders would yesterday venture
to approximate the total number now out.
"It la the first day of the strike," said
Vice President Wilson, "snd too early to
make statements of thst kind. Aa a mat
ter of fact we are not disappointed that the
strike-is not complete the first dsy, for It
will take time to get all the men In the
smaller places organized and In line, but
they will come In all right."
Aa these men In th smaller towns own
their homes In a Urge number of esses and
would be forced to leave If they quit work
the company maintains that there la no
serloue probability of their Joining the
The bollermakers are not doing much at
present, but claim to be thoroughly organ
ized and well prepared to endure the atrlke
for an Indefinite time.
President Kennedy of the Boilermakers'
union saya there ara three bollermakers
at work on the Union Pacific system, two
at Armstrong and one at Council Bluffs
He ssys two nonunion- men who are at
work at Denver have. gone out and this
statement Is corroborated by General Man
ager Dickinson of the Union Pacific. Mr.
Dickinson, however, says that there are
still two men left la the Denver shops.
The csr builders ara at work and there
II no appelant sign of dissatisfaction
among them. Neither is there any evident
possibility of the trainmen striking.
Mar Oo Beyond I'nloa Faelle,
A strike leader said last night- that If
necessary the fight would be carried be
yond th Union Paciflo to the Southern Pa
cific and embrace all the Harrlman lines.
James O'Connell of Washington, th preel
dent of the international organisation, will
be In Omaha July 7, and If by that time
some settlement hss not been made or In
sight he will. It Is thought, take steps to
spread the strike. There is some doubt as
to whether the men will be successful In
enlisting the sympathy snd co-operation of
the machinists and bollermakers on the
other lines. Th officials scout at tb idea.
Vice President Wilson mads this state
The international organization has put
Its business agents to work In all cities
of the country from th Atlsntlo to th
Paciflo to see that non-union machinists
ars not being employed to fill the strikers'
places. A diligent watch will be kept on
the entire field and In this way we will be
prepared to thwart any attempt to sup
plant the men who have gon out."
New Men Worklaa; at Cheyenne,
CHEYENNE. Wyo., June JO. (Special
Telegram.) Th atrlke situation this aft
ernoon took an unexpected turn and from
present indications it Is believed the move
ment will fall through. Shortly after din
ner th company commenced to put on
new men aa fast as they applied for work
and when the whistle blew -at 8 : 10 there
wer about 150 men on the shop payroll, as
against twenty-five or thirty after th lock
out last week. It is stated tonight that
ths eompsny will Increase the force " at
this point as rapidly as the men can be
engaged until a sufficient number to man
the shops and' take care of the repair and
overhauling work hss been secured.
The piece-work plan . of operating the
machln shops will, however, prevail and
thoss who go to work do ao with this un
derstandlng. A prominent machinist said
tonight that he believed the strike would
fall through all over the system for the
reason that the batter class sf machinists
ars in favor of th. piece-work plan, as
they can make more money than under the
straight-salary plan. Ths chief objectors
to ths piece work, be said, are those men
wbe Ilk t put la -their time with aa little
work aa possibls and who haven't the snap
to make a good thing by rustling under the
The machinists say tonight only tbre of
their number ar at werk at thla point.
Th men ar aanguin of winning. A fore
of men is fitting up on of th shop a
lodging aouae, presumably for th msa
that are to be engaged. Cots and bunks
ars being put In snd arrangements will be
made to hoard the men. It Is said that
four Plnkertons bsve been sent here.

because the wsges there have advanced so

Texas senator as "an unwarranted attack."
Early In the session Mr. Elklns of West
Virginia delivered an earnest speech In
favor of the annexation of Cuba, main
taining that It would be to the best Inter
est of both countries.
Mr. Elklns' remarks drew a sharp fire
from Mr. Piatt of Connecticut and Mr.
Hanna of Ohio, who deprecated any an
nexation proposition at this time, and urged
that the United States ought to be sen
sible of its obligations to the civilised
world, If not to Cuba. After a lively col
loquy, in which General Wood was criti
cised, by inference, for using Cuban funds
to advance tb reciprocity propaganda, Mr.
Elklns' resolution for annexation was re
ferred to the Cuban relatione commmlttee.
Among the many bills passed waa one

stacle to a Speedy Termination
of the Present Session
of the Ilonse.
WASHINGTON, June 30. With final ad
journment probable tomorrow, the house
worked under high pressure from noon
today until far Into the night. As a pre
liminary several resolutions were adopted
to grease the legislative wheels. The rule
providing for the printing of conference
reports before conslderstlon was suspended
until the end of the session and a resolu
tion was adopted making a motion to sus
pend the rules in order st sny time. The
bouse then got down to business.
Tho conference report on tho Philippine
civil government bill, which Is considered
the lsst obstacle in the way of adjourn
ment, was adopted by a strict party vote,
with the single exception of Mr. McCall
of Massachusetts, who voted with the demo
crats, A partial report on the general
deficiency appropriation bill waa adopted
and after a prolonged fight the house, by a
vote of 118 to 101 sdopted the senate amend
ment to appropriate $r00,000 for the Buffalo
exposition and sent the bill back to con
ference. The senate amendmenta to ap
propriate $160,000 for the Charleston and
$1,000,000 to pay the Hawaiian flre-bubonlo
plague awards were defeated, the former by
a vote of "1 to 118. At the night aes
alon, however, the amount was appropriated
for Charleston. A number of billa were
passed under suspension of the rules, In
cluding the senate Mils to sllot lands in
the Cherokee nation, and to provide cor
poration laws for Alaska. At the evening
session the Dick militia bill, which ts to
be used as a stop-gap for the remainder
of the session while the house Is waiting
tor conference reports, was taken up. The
adjournment resolution Is to be withheld
until the conference report on the Philip
pine bill is adopted by the senate.
Vote Aid to nnfTnln.
The house met at 11 o'clock today. Mr.
Payne of New York, the majority leader,
asked unanimous consent that the Hepburn
rule requiring the printing of conference
reports in the record before consideration
should be suspended for the remainder of
the session. To this Mr. Richardson, the
minority leader, objected.
Mr. Cannon ot Illinois, chairman of the
appropriation committee, called up the
conference report on the general deficiency
bill. The report left in dispute items ag
gregating $1,905,000, Including the appro
priations for the Buffalo and Charleston
expositions and $1,000,000 for the payment
of Hawaiian claims. The report was
Mr. Canon moved that the house further
Insist and ask for a further conference.
Mr. Alexander of New York asked for a
separate vote on the appropriation of $750,-
000 for the Buffalo exposition; Mr. Finley
of South Carolina for one on the appropri
ation of $160,000 for the Charleston exposi
tion; Mr. Burton of Ohio upon th ap
propriation of $25,000 for the Improve
ment of the Ohio river from Cairo to
Mound City, and Mr. Cannon himself upon
the appropriation ot, $1,000,000 for the pay
ment ot Hawaiian claims. .
Mr. Alexsnder made a strong plea In
favor of concurrence in the senate Buffalo
exposition amendment. He declared that
the success of the exposition was aasured

Ktnley occurred. In previous expositions,
he said, the receipts in September increased
over those of August &5 per cent. At Buf
falo the receipts decreased 7 per cent after
the assassination ot President McKlnley. .
Messrs. Tawney of Minnesota, chairman
of the committee on expositions; Mr. Foster
of Illinois, Mr. Morris of Minnesota. Mr.
McClellan ot New York, Mr. Sulzer of New
York and Mr. Groavenor of Ohio supported
Mr. Alexander's motion, Mr.' Grosvenor said

Buffalo exposition amendment was carried
118 to 101.
Charleston Gets Help.
Mr. Finley of South Carolina then entered
his motion to concur in the Charleston ex
"If the members will give me an ays
and nay vote," said Mr. Cannon, "I am
willing to vote now. I want to see whether
the New York members will keep faith
with their South Carolina friends."
"I desire a few minutes," said Mr. Fin
ley. "My people are greatly Interested In
"Debate is unnecessary," observed Mr.
Cannon, "It you have made your deal."
"When the people of South Carolina in
augurated a movement for an exposition,"
Mr. Finley said, "they believed Charleston
would be treated by congress as other cities
had been. They were entitled to $350,000.
They obtained only $90,000. The appro
priation of $160,000 in the senate amend
ment would give tbem what they should
have had originally."
Mr. Cannon spoke sarcastically of ths
"cohesive force of public plunder."
He had lived to see the day when th
state of John C. Calhoun, the champion of
state's rights, come In here snd struck
bands with New York to get through th
New York appropriation.
Mr. FLnley's motion was lost 71 to 118.
At the night session the bouse receded Its
action and the amount was allowed.
Mr. Mondell of Wyoming moved in con
currence in the senate amendment to ap
propriate $1,000,000 toward payment of the
awards ot the fire claims commission upon
property destroyed In Hswail in tbs sup
pression ot this bubonic plague In 1899 and
