President Horace O. Burt will appear -or
Judge Berka in police oourt Wcdnee
lay morning at o'clock to answer to the
charge of fain Imprisonment preferred
against him by ten men whom the Union
Pacific Imported Into Omeba from Indian
apolis to become employes In the shops In
place of striker.
Warrants for the arrest of Mr. Burt and
W. Arnett, general employment agent of
the Union Pacific, were Issued by Judge
Berka yesterday morning upon the com
plaints of these ten men. The warranta
were placed in the bands of Detective
Drummy for service. At 2 o'clock In th
afternoon President Burt, accompa
nied by Edson Rich, one of th
Union Pacific attorneys, and Charles L.
Dundey, also an attorney, walked Into the
police station and gave himself up, say ne
he understood a warrant bad been Irsued
for him. Crummy had started down to the
.Union Pacific headquarters to serve the
warrants, when he met Mr. Burt and his
lawyers going to the police station. Ha did
not serve the warrants, therefore, until the
station was reached.
President Burt listened attentively to th
reading of the papers. He then gave bond
of $1,000 and was released to appear In po
lice court in the morning. His attorneye,
Rich and Dundey, signed the bond.
When the preliminaries were over Presi
dent Burt smiled and. with hla hat In hand,
walked Into Captain Mostyn's private office,
apparently the least concerned man In the
tatlon over what had taken place. He ap
peared in a very good humor, but declined
to make any statement. He took a seat In
the captain's offlce, picked up a copy of The
Morning Bee and read the account of his
Interview of the day before and also the ac
count of the action planned against him,
of which hla arrest wa the outcome. Ha
smiled and commented freely upon the facts
published. As soon as the bond was signed
the president, with his lawyers, left the
station, bidding the captain and other offi

It Is understood that Mr. Arnett left th
city Monday night.

A proposition wa received from th
Omaha Realty company tor th settlement of
general and special taxes now standing
against a number of parcela of property In
various part of the city owned by that
company. In its communication, which Is
signed by A. P. Dodge, Jr., the company re
late that the regular taxee on the property
amount In all to $1,374.60, and the penalties
and Interest on those taxes to 13,111.98, be
sides which there are special taxes, chiefly
for paving and curb and gutter work, which,
without Interest, amount to $15,60168. The
company proposes to the council to pay
$20,891.6$ In full settlement ot these taxes
and urges aa an argument In favor of tha
offer the statement that many of the special
assessments were In district where for
some technical defect the proceedings ot
the council have or would be declared by
court to be Invalid and th assessment
thereby nullified. It Is suggested that the
amount offered is probably much more than
the company would be compelled to pay it It
should be constrained to contest the taxes
in court. Tne communication waa referred

NO INVITATION fb" AMERICA
State Department Denlea Honor of
United Action la Ven
WASHINGTON, Aug. 28.-In view of cable
reporta from Europe indicating that a
movement le on foot to have the United
Statea Join Germany, France and other
powera with a view to suppressing the
disorder In Veneiuela, it is learned at the
State department that no euch move as
the one suggested has taken official form.
It is the belief of officials that the report
growa out of the request made by aome
ot the foreign powera about a month ago
that the United Statea join In a declara
tion that the blockade established by the
Veneiuelan goverpment waa ineffective. At
that time the American government de
clined to enter Into a concert for this
declaration, on the theory that If the
Venesuelan blockade was ineffective It was
quite needless to make an international
declaration of thla fact, aa the ineffective
ness of the blockade would serve all of the
practical needs of commerce. Since then
there have been no steps taken by the
foreign powers toward a concert of actlou
with the United Statea relative to Vene
zuela. CHANGES IN BIG NAVAL GUNS
