By process of much parliamentary man
euvering at cross-purposes and discussion
along Unas previously covered, tha Board
of Education last evening arrived at tba
adoption of a resolution which In effect
restores tha salaries of the principals of
early all of tha schools and tha grade
teachers to their status before the sweep

creases those of tha principals of tha lar
gest schools by making the maximum sal
ary $1&0 Instead of $140 per month anJ
leaves tha ealarlea of tha superintendent,
tha teachers of tha high schools and tha
special teachera as they were fixed by tha
latest revision of the rules.
Tha question of salaries came up on tho
'report of tha committee on salaries, rec
ommending the adoption of Mr. Woods'
resolution to restore all salaries
to the ' amounts at which they
were fixed before tha January cut. J. 1.
Smith offered a substitute to this report
providing for tha amendment of rule 20
In auch a manner as to fix tha salary of
tha clerks In the superintendent's and sec
retary's offices at $80 per month and the
clerk In the office of tha principal of tha
alga school at $70 per month, and tha
amendment of rule 137 In auch a manner
as to fix tha salaries of tha principals of
one and two-room buildings at $80 per
month, with an increase of $5 per month
VP to the eleven and twelve-room build
ings, wnicn are both fixed at $125 per
month, and from that point on the increase
of $5 for each additional room continues
to tha seventeen-room buildings, where the
maximum salary of $150 la reached. Tha
provision for the salaries of grade and kin
dergarten teachers was taken directly from
tha rules In force before the January cut,
and In the substitute resolution no men
tion was made of the high school teachers
or principal of that school or tha superln
tendent or the special teachers. Tha mo
tlon to auapend the rules for the purpose
of considering the substitute caused some
debate as to the justice of Increasing a
portion of the salarlea and omitting others
but finally prevailed by a vote of 10 to 8
President Barnard and Mr. Levy being ab
sent. Tha substitute resolution was then
adopted by the aame vote.
Move to Kaiae Others.
W. r. Johnson then Introduced a resolu
tlon providing that those teachers whose
celeries had reached $110 and those who
would under the rules be entitled to
ralss to be paid tha aama as previous
years and that the aalarles of ten of the
teachers of the High school be Increased,
tha teachers and the amount of the increaso
to be determined according to tha value of
tha services rendered and this to Include
tha salary of the principal of the school.
This resolution waa referred to tho com
mittee on salaries.
Tha report of the special committee on
tha purchase of five additional lots called
forth long and earnest debate. The com
mittee recommended that inasmuch as the
agent for the property had refused to ac
cept tha board's offer of $1,760 and had de
clared that the property could not be pur
chased 'for less than $2,000, the board do
nothing further In the matter. After much
talk aa to the necessity of an early settle
ment of this matter It waa referred to the
committee on grounds and property to re
port at an adjourned meeting to be held
Saturday for that and other purposes.

PUBLIC JIA. TARE A HAND
CitiEeni' Vetting Said to Be Hated in
Interest ef Settling Strike
UNION PACIFIC AND MEN STAND FIRM
Neither Admits Hardship from Strike
anit Both Claim Power to Kn
dare Strnarde for Looser
Another report Is current that public In
fluence will be exerted In the Interest of a
settlement of the Union Pacific strike. Soma
two weeks ago a report of thla kind was
circulated and the Real Estate exchange
went to the extent of naming a committee
which. It was said, would taks steps looking
to sn arbitration of the differences be
tween the railroad company and Its men,
but nothing came of this and apparently
the matter waa dropped. It was sug
gested In some quarters that this move on
the part of the Real Estate exchange was
more as a "feeler" than anything else,
launched for the purpose of ascertaining
the possibility of settling the strike by auch
a process. Officials of the company and
strike leaders were not Interviewed by any
of this committee.
The report which Is now current is to
the effect that a citizens' meeting la to be
called this week for the purpose of publicly
discussing the strike, Its effects and ways
and means of its termination. The con
tinued Idleness of several hundred men of
this class producing an effect which extends
through various channels and those Inter
eats Indirectly drawn Into the affair are
said to ba animating the movement for a
There la reason to believe that a settle
ment of this strike will not be attained
without a painstaking effort, for both sides
to the controversy, the strikers and the
Union Pacific, evidently are as determined
and uncompromising now ss they were when
the strike began. Nothing has been done
to facilitate closer relations between ths
contending factions or according to their
claims, weaken their positions.
Waiting; to Be Led.
Under such circumstances it is scarcely
possible that either of the principals will
take the initiative in any movement looking
to an adjustment of their differences any
time soon. The railroad company still
boldly declares Its ability to withstand the
strike for an Indefinite period, pronouncing
Its motive power unaffected as yet, despite
persistent claims of strikers to the con
trary. On the other hand strike 'leaders
assert their determination and power to
endure a winter'a siege If necessary and
even longer than that. A leader of the
strike said a few days ago that the machin
ists, . bollermakers and blacksmiths were
able and determined to stand out tor their
demands for a year If need be.
But In spite of their unyielding attitudes
Indications are not lacking of a disposition
on the part of the railroad and the strikers
to follow the leadership ot some outside
Influence In settling the strike. Or in other
words mMmim baa been given of even a de
sire by both parties to have the fight
brought to a close. If only It could be done

of the machinists was asked last night for
candid atatement. as to tha circumstances
of the machinists, who outnumber the other
craftsmen In this fight and with whose af
fairs he Is in touch officially. Mr. Grace
"Positively, there has been no suffering
as yet among any ot our men as a result of
this strike. Our benefits have been promptly
paid and while they are of course Insuffi
cient to regularly maintain a family, they
go far toward providing the actual neces-
ltles and that Is about all our men care
for just now. They are practicing the
strictest oconomy and frugality.

directly for aid should their conditions de

to and they are not even required to pre

to such proceedings. As yet, I can say
that not one machinist has found It neces
sary to take advantage of thla provision.
Prompt assistance will be given to any who
may find it necessary to do so, but we
do not apprehend much of this sort of
thing. Of course, we cannot say exactly
what the winter will bring. I am informed
that a large number. In fact, It has been
said, a majority of our men here In Omaha,
