of tha late campaign at ita third annual
reunion in Council Bluffs last week.
Memories are atlll too vivid to require a

,the war'a events. As the years pans this
necessity will arise and tha attendance
will be greater. At tha reunion at St.

Later gatherings will sea atlll greater

thinks so and General Hale la good au

Manila and the reason for his course wss

Two hundred or more of the 00 motor-
men and conductors employed by the Omaha
Street Railway company accepted ths Invi
tation of representatives of organised labor
to meet with them In a hall on the fourth
floor of tbo Continental block last night.
The meeting was for the dual purpose of
dtacuVstng -organisation of the afreet rail
way employes and of giving them an oppor
tunity to contribute to the support of tha
600 unorganised helpera who went out on
tha Vnlon Paclflo strike and who, having
no full membership In the large unions, are
receiving no strike benefit payments. The
meeting laated well Into the morning and a
considerable amount Is said to hsvs been
contributed, but the matter of organisation
was not acted upon and It Is said another
meeting" will be called.
Saturday afternoon Oeneral Manager Wil
liam A. Smith and Oeneral Superintendent
Fred A. Tucker of the street railway com
pany had a number of the employes before
them end argued against the latter under
taking organization. The argument waa
that such action would be unnecessary, aa

vided for the old cable lines on Hsrney and
Dodge streets, by the company's charter.
We have never organized here nor in Coun
cil Bluffs, nor hsvs ws had any serious
trouble, but this week when there csme up
the matter of ths compsny's selling out
soma of the boys grew fesrful that the
prssent executives would not continue In
office, and as their successors might be a
different kind of men, they looked on or
ganization as perhaps a wise provision for
the future. I understand that tha Amalga
mated Order of Street Railway employes
sent five men here to work with representa
tives of Central Labor union In the promo
tion of a union for us. Indirectly, wo
would be a help to the Union Paclflo strik
ers If we should organize, as wa would go
Into a central body here and pay duea. The
officiate got wind of tha matter, and Mana
ger Smith and Superintendent Tucker talked
to us about It I was at ona of tha ear

waa there, and I heard him aay that he dis
liked to see agitation of this matter, as
the company and the men had always got

ent officers are to remain. But I came to
the meeting, anyhow. In the hops that or
ganization would be accomplished; at least.
that wa would take an Initial atep by
electing a temporary chairman, secretary
and treasurer. I am not afraid of losing
my job, but some of the men seem to bo a
little skittish, and I notice that they wore
their stors clothes tonight, lnstesd of their
uniforms. I believe that If any of ths men
should be discharged for attending this
meeting it might result In a general strike,
though our feelings now toward the com
pany are kindly, and we are making no
complaint of the pay." -
Wilson Gives Hla Views.
Fourth Vice President Wilson of the
machinists' union, who has general charge
of the Union Pacific strike, was present at
the meeting and talked with and to the
street railway men. Outside the building
two or three representatives of the strik
ing bodies were stationed to direct any
caller not familiar with tha building in
which the meeting waa being held. One of
theae tald: "Wa want tha street railway
men to organize for our own and for their
own good. The company's charter does
not -say anything sbout ths 10-csnt wsgo
and theae men should not rely en It nor be
too confident of their 20 cents in ths fu
ture. It they send a committee to head
quarters, as requested by Mr. Tucker, the
committee may get soms concessions, but
the company will be only playing for time.
It will want to atave off organization In
the hope that eventually the move will be
abandoned. A committee should not be
sent there until It has sn organization to
represent and to back It up. There are
more than 600 -of the car men In Omaha
and about 400 more employed an the Coun
cil Bluffs and bridge linea. It was our
hope to have all these orgsnised together,
aa they would be a power if united."
A. properly accredited member of the fed
eration board. Union Paclflo atrike com
mittee, said that yesterday be was at ths
aouth terminal of the Hsrney line meeting
the carmen there aa they turned their cars
and that several of them contributed to the
support of the unorganized helpers. Later
he went to the Burlington atatlon, terminal
of the Dodge line, to see those cn the cara
there and that Foreman Larson rebuffed
blm with a declaration that he didn't be
lieve In such methods nor In giving money
upder such conditions.
"This seemed to slightly Intimidate the
conductor I was sbout to address," said
ths member of the federated board, "but
I waa prefectly frank in all my dealings
and waa not pressing the men to give If
they weren't Inclined. I Invited them to coma
up here to the hall, however, for a confer
ence on the matter of contributing. Later
we shall resume our talka with policemen
for the aame purpose and before long we
expect to have a 'public mass meeting at
which we will Invite public men to speak
and at which I shall msks a further effort
In behalf of the loyal helpers."

condition, and especially if the hair follicles are harboring micro-organisms, the complete
elimination of refuse matter is largely interfered with. This produces that hot and feverish
condition of the scalp that so many are familiar with, but that so few fully understand. When
the scalp is in this condition the necessity for a safe but active germicide will be apparent to
all. Newbro's Herpicide is such a remedy. It dissolves and dissipates the dry and insoluble
refuse matter that clogs up the pores of the scalp. It acts as a refrigerant, cooling the feverish
condition, and stopping all itching and irritation. . '
Particular attention Is necessary to
LfldiCS properly care for the hair during the
summer months. Ladles should wash
the hair oftener, and practioe "sun drying" but not in a
draft whenever possible. Men should understand the harm
they may do by dashing cold 'water on the scalp, allowing It
iirinpsjJ ijp oj The minute convolutions of tbs true skin
' of ths scalp lncresses very largely its sensibility to sudden
changes, which often Induce catarrhal folliculites, and many
men are either bald or losing the hair from ignorance of this
fact. Hot' and cold applications, If used alternately, ara
beneficial, but the hair should not be allowed to dry slowly
without the use of a suttsble stimulant. Newbro's Herpicide
contains the exact quantity of alcohol that Is necessary to
properly stimulate the capillary glands of ths scalp, and
keep them in a healthy condition. Thi subject Is certainly
worthy of serious consideration. Baldness will never ba
popular; it is always Inconvenient, snd by exposing the hesd
often Induces a train of Ills that would otherwise be svoldel.
Prof. Unna's discovery that falling hair and baldness sre
caused by a microbe, haa been verified by every dermatolo
gist of note In ths world. Dr. Sabouraud, who succeeded In
inoculating the microbe of baldness, aays: "Baldness Is a
contagious disease caused by a microbe. So far from' being a
dtvaase of old age, It Is an affection of youth. It begins In
the young, and increases, whether rapidly or slowly
up to ths fiftieth year." If you are losing your hair
you ara certainly interested In thla ' subject, and you
csnnot begin too soon ths work of undoing the Injury
that It may have taken years to accomplish. Our remedy'
. About a year ago my hair began to fall out In great quantities. My scalp was covered with dandruff so every time I
combed my hair the dandruff cams down like snow. Have tried all kinds it to-called hair vigors and hair tonics, but without
deriving any benefit therefrom, until I began using your Herpicide. I havs scarcely used one bottle of your preparation, and
since lta use the dandruff disappeared, the hair does not fall out auy more, and It seems to grow nicely with a bran new crop.
I am well pleased with Newbro's Herpicide, and the praise that I have for it cannot be over estimated. I do, and will recom
mend It to everyone that Is In need of such a prepsratlon. (Slgnsd) bTEPHEN FISHER, Dickinson, N. D.

Cheyenne Is msking a strong bid against
Omaha for the center of the stage of Union
Paclflo strike activities. The attention of
the strikers here and elsewhere, as well as
thst of the officials of ths company, has
been focused on the Wyoming metropolis
during the last few daya. The unusual pro
ceedings consist largely In the movement
of men to and from the shops. Ths com
pany has been ongsged la an effort to keep
the shops sufficiently manned, while the
strikers havs lost no time or spared no
pains in offsetting these endeavors.
ths result of this somewhat exciting con
teat Is, according to strikers' reports, that
the ahop force at Cheyenne haa bven so
materially reduced as to give most serious
snnoyance to the company. It la said that
Thursday twenty-seven nonunion men left
the shops and Friday twenty-one, a total of
forty-eight In two days, whicl Is a Urge
number to be subtracted from an already
