They have secured the Chicago scale, which
gives foremen an advance of 4 cents an
hour and helpers 8 cents. Although this
schedule has Just been granted, It dates
back to November 15.
' The Burlington switchmen were extremely
conservative and cautious In presenting
their demands, and all their negotiations
with the officials were guarded with ut
most secrecy. As a result their delibera
tions were brief and over before It became
generally known that they bad asked for a
raise. This Is the third road converging
in Omaha to grant the Chicago scale to Its

Those here are William '. Hockenberger,
chairman of the general committee of the
Brotherhood of Engineers on the Union
Paclflo, and George E. Monchan of Denver
and R. Robertson of Cheyenne, members
of the committee. Speaking of their mis
sion, Mr. Hockenberger said:
"We came to discuss some local differ
ences with the officials. By local, I mean
differences between the company and Its
engineers on just a part of the road, not
spreading over the entire system. These
differences do not relate to wages and the
subject of an increase In wages will not be
taken up at this conference, so far as we
are concerned. That is a matter which
will come later."
Mr. Buckingham is out of the city and
will not return until Sunday, so the engi
neers cannot meet him until, probably,
Monday. Mr. Buckingham has telegraphed
Mr. Hockenberger and his associates to
wait for him.

Referring to this general movement, Mr,
Hockenberger said the engineers on the

ARGUES TO SAVE SPELLMAN
Lawyer Wanta to Make Longer Talk Before
Submitting to Jury,
PROSECUTOR EXAMINES THE DEFENDANT
Voouk Man Says He Was Left Alone In
Gutter with Caldwell After He
Had Knocked the Lat.
After talking to the Jury two hours
yesterday afternoon, A. S. Ritchie, coun
sel for the defense In the trial of John
Spellman, charged with second degree mur
der of Earl Caldwell last September, said,
at 5:15, that he would like to bave a
continuance until this morning, promising
not to consume more than forty-five min
utes more. The judge granted the re
quest with some reluctance, explaining
that the jurors had been held In the
custody of the bailiffs since Tuesday and
that the court, which has other matters
set for today, had hoped that the present
case could be submitted last night. At
torney Ourley, counsel for Caldwell's
widow, declared to the jury In his argument
for the prosecution, that were It not for
the prejudice existing by reason of tho
Union Paclflo strike It would take no Jury
more than fifteen minutes to bring In a
verdict of guilty.
Yesterday the state had Spellman re
called for cross-examination and brought
out the circumstance that he was left alone
In the gutter with Caldwell after he had
knocked the latter down. Spellman testi
fied that In falling after Caldwell from the
crossing Into the ditch he alighted on his
hands and knees, with his hands about
even with Caldwell's hips, and that he
struck two more futile blows as he was
Only Two In the Ditch.
"Were there others in the ditch with you
at this time?" Deputy Abbott asked.
"Where waa the rest of the crowd?"
"Back of me."
"Chasing Ball, I suppose."
"What was Caldwell doing?"
"He waa squirming around, trying to get
up and get out, I guess."
"Were you holding him in any way?"
"What was ths condition of the ground
In the ditch?"
"Well, were there any pieces of sticks or
bricks or plsster there?"
"Were you looking for any?"
"I was not."
In rebuttal Police Captain Hate was
called and testified that when be examined
the ditch the Tuesday after the fight he
observed that there waa made earth about
It with pieces of brick and sticks lying

OTHER LANDS THAN OURS.
King Leopold of Belgium is 66 years old,
lame and threatened with blindness, but
despite these handicaps enjoys the reputa
tion of being the most progressive of kings.
The king has known many sorrows. His
favorite sister, Carlotta lost her reason
after the death of her husband, the ill-
starred Emperor Maximilian of Mexico.
His only son died at the age of 10. His
own marriage with an Austrian duchess
was not happy. Queen Marie Henrlette
died only a short time ago, and when one
of his daughters, the Countess Longay,
formerly the Princess Stephanie, went to
the palace, the king refused to receive her,
being incensed because of her second mar
riage. Simple and democratic In his taste,
he has been the least cermonlous and most
approachable of sovereigns. He has re
ceived at his court men of action mer
chants and the explorers who opened the
Congo Free State as a Belgian empire un
der international auspices. He has chosen
as his Intimate associates engineers, archi
tects, landscape gardeners and capitalists
who have helped him to beautify hla capi
tal and improve the chief cities of the
The German emperor has once more pro
voked sharp, though cot always pointed
criticism by a reaffirmation of his peculiar
art theories, on the occssion of the open
ing of the new colleges of painting, sculp
ture, and music at Charlottenburg.
Among other things, he ssld: "I cannot
let thla opportunity pass without address
ing to both teachers and pupils the earn
est exhortation to preserve and to culti
vate the Ideals of art within the paths
which are traced by tradition and by the
immutable laws of beauty, harmony, and
aesthetics keeping in close touch with tho
incomparable classical models, and faith
fully following those numerous great mas
ters of later centuries who dedicated them
selves to art and developed It, partlcuarly
those masters who taught or were trained
In the academy." His profound dislike for
modern German art is said to be due to
the fondness of the materialistic school for
painting "poor people." This he regards
as a manifestation of social democratic
tendencies, and something to be dlscour
aged severely. The painters naturally ob
ject strongly to those political deductions
from their artistic preferences. The em
peror's theory of an immutable standard of
artistic excellence la also vigorously as
sailed. Fortunately the day is past when
an art movement can be extinguished, or
even checked perceptibly, by even an em
The situation in Ireland has been, for the
past year or two, of a character more dls
turblcg and threatening than It had been
for many years previous to that time.
The coercion act has been put in tores
with a great deal of vigor, to counteract
the operation of the United Irish league
and altogether there is less feeling of
contentment on the part of English states
men and journals with the prospects of the
Emerald Isle than bad been the case for
a long period prior to the recent revival
of active agitation. It Is difficult, at this
distance, to judge in what measure this
state of things is due to unreasonableness
or want of skill on the part of the Irish
leaders, In what measure to English ob
tuseneea or arrogance, and in what meas
ure to Inherent and unavoidable difflcul

just decided to found an agricultural high
school for women, which will be the first
Institution of this kind in Europe. Ac
cording to the program, which has already
been drawn up, the object of the school
will be to give women a general training
as agriculturalists. The students will also
be permitted to restrict their attention'
to special branches, such as dairy farm
ing, gardening, bee culture, poultry keep
ing and cattle and sheep breeding. It
will be an indispensable condition for ad
mittance to have passed through a gym
nasium or similar institution for In
termediate education. The ministry
has fixed the course for three years.
It will Include practical occupation on a
model farm in addition to atudy and labor
atory work. The women who pass through
this institution will enjoy the same rights
as successful male students of the exist
ing high schools. They will consequently
be capable of filling various posts under
the ministry of agriculture and will be
further entitled to hold the position of
administrators of the crown domains and of
teachers In the Intermediate agricultural
schools. Although the date pn which the
new institution will be opened has not
yet been decided upon, 825 young women
who have had an Intermediate education
have announced their intention to follow
A new liquor ordinance which has Just
been promulgated by the British author
ities at Pretoria provides for the applica
tion of local option by the decision of a
majority or the exclusive control of the
liquor traffic by trusts for public purposes.
The employment of femalea, children under
16 and natives behind bars is prohibited.
In an explanatory note, the government
remarks that it did not view with favor
the many representations asking it to
assume control of the liquor traffic, but
readily avails itself of the opportunity for
testing the principles of public bouse trusts
as advocated in other countries. The ordi

COUNTY WILL GET ITS COAL
Contractor Saya Order Will Be Filled
from Hla Stock on
Douglas county Is not to suffer through
the inability of Victor White to secure coal
from Chicago. The order was sent to Chi
cago to save handling the coal twice, and
had It been filled the coal would have been
delivered direct to the court house from '
the cars. As It Is, the coal will be deliv
ered from the stock on hand at the sheds,
which is sufficient to supply all ordinary
Coal dealers say that under existing con
ditions Omaha is more likely to suffer from
a shortage of soft coal, although that Is not
expected, than from a shortage In the an
thracite suppy. When the present shortage
and exorbitant prices became assured many
persons who have heretofore used hard coal
had ths grates In their furnaces changed
for the use of soft coal. Others replaced
base burners with soft coal stoves, so that
the total consumption of hard coal In tho
city will be much less than It has been for
many years. This change lncreaaed the de
mand for soft coal
Some dealers express the opinion that
the shortage of anthracite coal this year
will permanently reduce the consumption of
that coal in this market, as persons who
have replaced base burners with soft coal
stoves and those who have had their fur
naces altered will not return to the use ot
hard coal, at least not until their present
stoves and furnaces must be replaced with
