C1R BUILDERS TO CONFER
Eti an Appointment to Ifeet General
COMMITTEE TO REPORT TO THE UNION
Other Trades la the Strike Believe It
Effort Settle the Trenble
Piecemeal 'and , Thus
. Weakest Them.
General Manager Dickinson of the Union
Pacific pro ably will meet a committee from
the car builders who are on a strike., Mon
day, when a conference a to term of set
tlement of the car men'a differences will bo
discussed. The car men held a meeting yes
terday at which It was stated that a com
munication had been received from Mr.
Dickinson requesting a conference with
members from the car builders' union. A
eommlttee to meet the general manager was
then appointed and it Is designed to com
ply with Mr. Dickinson's request tomor
row. . If the plan tentatively decided on yester
day Is carries out the committee which
meet the general manager will not have
power to act on any proposition he might
make. It I the purpose of the car
builders to empower this committee
with authority merely to meet and
confer with the general manager and
ether official of the company and re
port back to the union the result of that
onferenc without committing Itself or the
Union to any definite proportion. In this
plan It Is thought the hand of allied strikers
Is risible, that the matter has been d s
eussed among the member ef other crafts
en a strike as well as the car builder and
that the purpose Is to reject any proposal
made by the official that does not contem
plate a settlement satisfactory to all the
strikers. The car builder meet again thl
morning, when thl matter will be further
Weakest la Oraraalsatloa.
The car builders were tho last of the
tradesmen in the shops to strike and the
last to perfect a good local organization.
They are therefore the weakest In organiza
tion and It Is thought are regarded by tho
company as susceptible to overtures for
peace. Succeeding In Us scheme of drawing
the car builders back in the shops, it Is
the alleged purpose of the company to use
that aa a means of Inducing a surrender
or eompromle from the other strikers. In
fluences are at work bracing the weak
members of the car builders' union and the
Strikers believe they all can be held In Una.
Borne days ago The Bee published the
fact that a committee from the allied unions
had been sent out to secure from the Union
Paclfio trainmen promisee that tbey would
refuse to haul trains bearing nonunion
workmen Into any of the towns along the
road. This committee has been actively at
work all week and it is believed has ac
complished Its purpose. This morning a
meeting of all the trainmen, or as many
representing the various trades as can bs
there, will be held, probably lu Myrtle bill,
when this proposition will be thoroughly

No developments have come ef the Real
EeUte exchange's move to conciliate the
parties to the strike. E. A. Benson of the
committee appointed to ottr the mediation
of the exchange said yesterday that the
committee had aproached neither the strik
ers nor officials of the Union Paclfio and that
the matter was resting quietly.
The controversy between officials of the
Union Pacific and the car builder who
struck a few days ago aa to which party
broke the agreement entered Into July T to
be maintained for one year, haa reached a
point where the car men feel called upon to
issue a formal statement declaring that th
company and not they violated this con
tract. Letter to President Bart.
Thl letter haa been sent to President
OMAHA, Aug. 23. Mr. H.'o. Burt, Presi
dent Union Pacific Railroad Company:
Pear Sir As we understand that the of
ficials of the Union Pacific claim we had
no irrounda for walking out as we did
August 18, we, a committee appointed by
the car shop employes, furnish testimony
of several men to show you and the public
that we had ample grounds In the facts, aa
proved by the evidence herewith submitted,
that It was the company and not the men
who violated th agreement. Respectfully,

JOHN B. EVANS. '
The evidence referred to consists of state
ments from different men who had been
employed In the car shops. Pat McCabe
one of these men, said he began work there
August ( and worked continually until the
strike. He claims he waa to get fl.25 for
a running board on an Iron-roofed car and
11 and 9 cents a toot for patches on roofs.
After three days of employment, he states,
he waa In Ignorance as to what he was mak
ing, that Mr. Langford, the new piecework
inspector, cut wages and the foreman could
not tell him what he was making.
Comolalat of a Palater.
James Bolan, a painter, saya: "Under
the old system of pay I got 30 cents an
hour for varnishing a car, which therefore
gave me $1.20 for four hours' work. Under
the piecework system I have to do that
amount for 84 centa. Four hours tor var
nishing a car la as fast as any man can
work, but they have compelled ua to do
that work In two hours and a half under
the piecework system, which Is too much for
a man to try to keep up. I could not keep
up the lick regularly. At M cents an hour
I varnished the car for 12.40, under the old
pay system, but under the piecework sys
tem I would do the work for $1.72. The
company makes 68 centa on the car.
Robert Bailey I waa required to put
In a test day's work to see how much I
could do. On August 11 two of us worked
as hard as we could under this new sys
tem and we made $2.84. One day we
reached $2.(4. A day's pay ranged from
$1.80 to $3 for the two of us, but, the lick
waa too hard to keep up.'
Never Received Preatlam.

statement In the shops that any man
working on piecework and making more
than the day's wages would get a pre

The nationalization plan of the commit
tee of the Plumbers' union was adopted
with unimportant amendments by the con
vention yesterday morning, after considera
ble discussion. The only contention which di
vided the delegates waa the apportionment
of funds between local unions and the na
tional body, and this question wa aettled
by what I known aa the "de-centralization
plan," by which the local unions retain In
their treasuries all funda paid by the mem
bens, and no money ts kept at headquarters
except an amount sufficient to pay the run
ning expenses. The local unions, under
this ptan, pay to the national organization
such fund as may be required in the regu
lar manner, and a atrlct account la kept of
the transactions. At the end of the year
a balance is struck and unions which
have contributed more than the average are
repaid, while thoae whose contributions to
the general expenses of the order have not
teen as much as the average are required
to pay the difference. This plan, while
adopted unanimously by the convention, will
not be effective until next year. The con
vention haa reforred the matter, with It
approval, to a referendum vote of all the
member of th anion. The vote will be
taken by the SCO affiliated union on Octo
ber 17, and on the result of that vote the
adoption of the plan depends. It Is said
that so far as can be ascertained from the
delegates present every union will favor the
plan by a large majority, and the delegatee
look upon, the matter as settle!.
Hew Departure la Thle Coaatrr.
The plan la somewhat of a departure In
American unions, although It haa been in
effect to a great extent In ' the German
unions, and was brought from that country
with slight modification by the Clgarmak
ers union, by which It has been operated
with more or leas success for several years.
Th plumbers' plan la a alight modification
of that of the cigar makers. There is pro
vided a death benefit of $100, a sick benefit of
$5 per week for a term of thirteen weeks, a
atrlke benefit of $6 per week for alxteen
weeks, after which the benefit drops to $3.
The most radical feature la aa eld-age pen
sion of $600. This Is psld to a member of
the union who, after having carried mem
bership In the union for twenty-five years,
becomes incompetent by reason of old age.
At the afternoon aession there was con
siderable Interest shown in the reports of
various committees. One committee has
reported a resolution to increase the sala

UNCERTAIN AS TO IDENTITY
Police Cannot Make Ip Their Mlada
as to Whether Mrs. Gibson Is
Km ma' Goldntaa.
The Omaha police are still endeavoring
to aettle the question whether or not Emma
Goldman, the archangel of anarchy, la dom
iciled In this city. Chief Donahue believes i
now that she is not, although the woman
giving her name as Mrs. Mary Gibson, who
was thought to be Emma Goldman, Is still
under police surveillance.
Early yesterday morning Detective Dunn
and Savage went to th Martls block, where
"Mrs. Gibson" occupies a aulte of rooms,
and made an Investigation of the rooms and
their contents, incidentally submitting "Mrs.
Gibson" to a slight crosa-examinatlon, de
signed to bring out her identity. It waa
tentatively decided she was not Emma
In the day the woman called at
Chief Donahue's office and the chief held, a
long consultation with her. He said after
"I do cot thliik this Is Ftnma Goldman,
in fact we have practically satisfied our
selves on that point."
Mrs. oiboo claims io iiavo corns here
with her son from Chicago and says that
he secured employment at South Omaha,

she waa aeeklng employment. The chief
found a woman on Davenport street who
claims to know Mr. Gibson and say she
Is not the noted anarchist. Chief Donahue
thinks the photographs of Emma Goldman
support this theory. '
The most mystifying circumstance about
"Mrs. Gibson's" case is the two letters
which are said to have been delivered
by a postman Thursday addressed to
"Emma Goldman," and which came from
Chicago. It la still maintained that these
letters were actually delivered and that
the woman took them, glanced at the ad
dress and then, effacing the Omaha ad
dress, substituted that of Chicago, saying
she would forward them to Chicago.
Nothing has been seen of the letters.
Postmaster Crow was asked If he had
been apprised of the delivery of these
letters and expressed ignorance of the
whole matter. . The letter carrier on that
route, J.' F. Lally, when asked about the
matter, said he was forbidden by rules
of the department from giving out any
Information concerning such matters and
the aame kind of answer was given by the
superintendent of carriers. The police
officer claim to be certain the letters were

caller. At 1:45 yesterday afternoon Detec
tive Dunn called and failed to gain entrance
or elicit any response to hla repeated knocks
at the door. Women In the flat said "Mrs.
Gibson" waa at home at the time.
The police, despite their conviction that
this is not Emma Goldman, continue to
keep a watch on the woman's movements,
and frequent visits will be made by officer
to the flat occupied by 'her until whatever
mystery, if any, there la connected with her
presence is solved. If, as baa been sug
gested, she Is a foreruuntng confederate of
Emma Goldman, Chief Donahue and his
men mean to find It out.
