President John McNeil of the Interna
tional Brotherhood ot Boiler Makera and
Iron Shipbuilder mad hi report to tbe
fourth district lodge ot boiler makers yester
day morning at the semi-annual meeting In
Labor Temple. Tbe report involved a de
tailed statement of the conditions of th
present strike on the Union Pacific, In
which members of this lodge srs engaged,
and was ot a very encouraging nature.
President McNeil reviewed th progress of
th strike, coming to tbe conclusion that
better hope and chance f victory con
fronted tbe striker now than at th be
ginning ot th stubborn conflict. H said
the men were all united and determined,
had excellent financial resources and were
cordially supported by th grand lodge.
These elements he regarded as assurances
Tbe district meeting adjourned shortly
after noon and the visiting members. In
cluding President McNeil, returned to
their homes. President McNeil goes
back to Ksosas City, not to return to
Omaha until aome exigency arises to de
mand his presence here. He says the men
have everything in good shape and favor
able to a auccesstul termination of the fight
with tbe Union Pacific, and that he will b
actively engaged In their support at all
times until the strike I ended. - McNeil,
like other leadera of tbe strike, does not
predict an early settlement, although ha a
desirous that normal conditlona may L
reatored at th earliest possible date.
Ma? Go Over Mart's Head.
There 1 a general Impression in some
quarters, bssed upon reports from the
western stock ranges, which are feeling
the effects of this strike materially, that
a strong appeal will be made to th di
rector of the Union Pacific at their meet
ing next month in New York for a aettle
ment of the atrlke. Men who are promi
nent In the west are quoted as saying that
they believe aome sort of terms to be
presented to tb strikers will b decided
on at this meeting. A statesman ot on
of the western states, who is extensively
Interested In stock raising and who baa
