With a coal famine atarlng It In tbc face,
la addition to and primarily aa a result of
ahe strike la Ha ahopa. which haa been In
srogresi. since the middle of June, the
Vnlon Pacllls doubtless baa felt the force
of the trita saying that "misfortunes never
On what la regarded aa reliable authority
the statement is made that the Union Pa
cific la confronted by an alarming dearth
of coal, relief from which aeema utterly Ira
posslble ao long as the present atrike on lta
own ayatcm laata. Thla predicament la not
attributed to the great anthracite coal mine
atrike, though that probably will have aome
iTect beforo the needs of the company are
atlsned. s:he actual cause of the lack of
coal la traced back to deficient motive
;power. due to the strike. It Is not main
tained that the company haa been unable
to get coal or operate lta own raluee. but It
ts stoutly urged that engines cannot ba so-
cured with which to transport the coal that
Is available to placea where It la needed.
Hock Pprlnga. the. company's greatest source
of coal, la said to be surrounded with loaded
ears which cannot be moved for want of
mi nines, and therefore It has been found
useless to mine more fuel until whet is al
ready on hand has been removed and cara
are thus provided.
A. reporter fcr The Bee was Informed by
gentleman who clalma to have a knowl
edge of the situation that the company ac
tually had accessible Friday on an average
oyer lta entire system one day's supply of
coal; of course in aome places there waa
mora than that, in others less.
Officials Are Evasive.
OfDclala oi the company refuse to confirm
this atory. One of them In the motive
puwer department said:
"I know of no acarclty of coal which
ought to give us any alarm. I understand
there are thirty-five cara of coal over at
Council' Bluffs and that many times that
number are out at Rock 8prlngs. Our reg
ular dally output at Rock Springs la about
TOO cars, and with that supply we ought not
experience any coal famine."
An official In the purcbaalng department
was equally aa evasive and nothing more
definite could be learned In the coal supply
office. Worn the first of the present diffi
culties the officials have maintained that
r.helr motive power waa being kept up aa
,-good, and some have even gone ao far as
to say better than before the strike, so that
(hsy do not care now to give out different
ttetementa. It still remains a problem how
the company can maintain Its standard mo-
lve power with Its shops either tied op
'with a strike or filled with new, and in
many cues unskilled, laborers.
The Union Pacific's custom has bees to
aret Its coal from the nearest possible point.
thus making the haul aa abort as possible
3t has been in the habit of using Port Scott
and other Kansas and Missouri coal for lta
'.Kansas division and baa drawn mostly upon
the Rock Springs and other Wyoming
sources 'or its main division supply. But
at the same time, according to the com
gtany's atatements, a great deal of the Rock
i Springs coal haa cone to Salt Lake City and
other placea In the west for commercial
gmrpoaes. Tt e company has been tfslng the
.'Henna coal 111 lta freight englnea. Now It
la aaid efforts are being made to get coal
from Iowa and even Illinois, but owing to
the enormous demands already pressing
upon those mines by reason of the anthra
cite atrike, which naturally increases, the
pressure on bituminous coal, no great suc
cess la being achieved along this line, ao
that altogether the gravity ot the tin ion Pa
erne's condition Is dally increasing.
Haliri Striker' Hopea.
Although the Information regarding the
t'nlon Pacific's pending coal famine comes
from sources entirely foreign to the atrlkers
rhe latter doubtless will base now hopes ot
uccess upon this new misfortune which haa
'befallen the company. Their only hope of
winning the atrike has been the ultimate
collapse of the motive power, which they
fcave maintained all along waa Inevitable
and therefore their victory aaaured. While
the company haa been able to Import con
siderably over 1,000 workmen Into Its shops
over the system since thla trouble began
only a moderate proportion of thla number
have remained and new the importations
appear more difficult, which . lends Boras
i-olor to the assertions of the strikers that
the company Is engaged in hiring over men
who have been Imported before. Time and
again officials of the Union Pacific have as
verted that their ahopa were full of men and
no more, would, therefore, be employed.
Such a atatemsnt with reference to the
Omaha shops was made at headquarters
Wednesday by William Canada, chief of the
secret service, and yet twenty-seven new
recruits arrived yesterday morning and an
other batch Friday.

Fort Crook soldiers have established
toemeeives very firmly In the regard of
the officers at army headquarters by their
actions during the progress of the maneuver
division at Fort Riley and Just previously.
The men of the Twenty-eecond are now
wending their slow wsy homewsrd from
Fort Riley by foot snd when they reach
their own post they will have put more
than 600 miles under foot during the last
two months or less.
i aptaln Reeves, aide-de-camp to Major
General Bate, is generous In his praise
or this command, Paid he:
That Is a first-class regiment of
soldiers. It wasn't long ago that they
marched to the rifle range at the Win
nebago Indian agency, a distance of eighty-
three miles, and then they walked back
again. Afler a very short time spent at
routine duties about the post they were
stsrted off to. Fort Rilsy, 197 miles more.
1 was there the day they came In. Just
finishing the last lap, as It were, of that
long tramp, yet every man was behaving
like a soldier, ranks were closed up, the.
command was In all respects up to regula
tions and the men were doing better than
three miles an hour In good, brink shape.
This regiment also acted particularly
well during the maneuvers. The Fort
Crook men seemed to enter Into the spirit
of the thing with an unusually good nerve
and energy. They were noticeable all the
way through for soldierly conduct. Fri
day they started back to Fort Crook
again, still walking! They will not hurry.
but will get In probably by October 16 or
sooner. That la 197 miles more and. count
ing their daily tramping during the con
tinuance of the maneuver division, they
will have marched considerably more than
600 miles since they started for the rifle

"The people at large have got a rather

will be a good thing for Omaha and for the
company, I do not think there will be any
revolution. We are not In a position to

Mr. Murphy did not come down to his
office until lata in the afternoon.
The remains of Mrs. Emllle Haubens and
her two sons. F.mil Victor Haubens and
Walter William Haubens, dead from the In
sane act of the mother, will be Interred at

At 2 o'clock the funeral services wilt be

Henry Haubens, husband and father.
arrived in the city at 4 o clock Fri
day afternoon and at the Vnlon
station first learned the nature of
the calamity at his home, ot which be had
been warned by telegraph. He was com
pletely proetrated. Some friends of the be
reaved man had gone to Fremont where
they expected to meet him and break the
terrible news, but Mr, Haubens, on receiv
ing the telegram, cbauged his route at
Columbus, by which means he could arrive
Note to Her Hasband.
Immediately upon his arrival at the house
Mr. Haubens was given a note which had
been found by Miss Caroline Haubens on
the table In the dining room Friday
morning. It was written with a lead pencil
on the back of a piece of notepaper ot the
Eton Brewing company. It read:
Goodbye, dear Henry, you are the beet
of men, but as I can't be cured I go and
take the children with me.
The writing was plain, but showed much
nervousness on the part ot the writer. The
note was neither addressed nor signed and
was not placed in an envelope. Miss Hau
bens kept it until the return of her brother.
Mr. Haubens Is completely broken down
by the awful tragedy and a pall of sorrow
overspreads the entire neighborhood. Mr.
Haubens spent a aleepleea night and most
ot the time walked the floor, frequently giv
ing vent to hla great grief. The funeral
arrangements are In charge ot Mr. Stors
and Mr. Wlllrodt.
Mrs. Haubens was the leader ot the
French department of the Woman's club
and was a popular member of that organ
isation. From a message she sent to the
secretary of the club last Monday It is
-thought that she had contemplated self
destruction fer Boreral days. On tit y
she notified the secretary that aha would not
be able to attend the Monday meeting, but I
that ahe desired a manual aent her. "I
would suggest," ahe said, "that you get
new leader for the French department.
something might happen that would prevent
me from keeping up the work." It was be
lieved at the time that Mrs. Haubens meant
her health would not permit of her con
tinuing the work.
