KO SETTLEMENT THIS WEEK
tTathlof Will B Dons with Strike Until
President Bart Retarni.
DECISIVE ACTION EXPECTED NEXT WEEK
President f Boiler Makers Raid
Hare Rerelre Hfiutc from Haw
Tark with Information;
that Gives Hop.
No decisive action will bo taken In the
Union raclflc strike until next week at
least. Authoritative sources disclose the
Information that the conference of officials
In New Tork evolved no basis of settlement
which can be made public until President
Burt'a return to Omaha. This, It was
learned from the president's office here,
wlU be some time next week. Hence all
envelopments await his coming.
President John McNeil of the boiler mak
er, who Is now the aggressor on the side
of the strikers, has gone to Kansas City,
his home, where he will remain for several
day. Before President Burt's departure
for New Tork an understanding was had
Vet ween him and Mr. McNeil that the 1atr
ter should wait In Omaha for a telegram
(rem the former, which would be sent as
noon as the conference with Harrlman and
the other directors was over. It was
Understood this telegram would con
tala some statement of the pol
icy decided on. While Mr. McNeil de
clined to discuss the matter before leaving
yesterday. It was learned from reliable
sources that he had heard from Mr. Burt
and that the message contained hopeful In
formation. McNeil and Burt will meet In
Omaha next week, when, doubtless, other
trlke representatives will be called In and
the whole proposition thoroughly discussed.
Donfct of Immediate Action.
It cannot be said that the strikers are
especially dubious as to the outcome of
this conference next week, yet there Is
considerable doubt of an Immediate settle
ment. The men are decidedly In favor of
bringing matters to a peaceful end, how
ever. They still maintain their determina
tion to hold out for their original demands.
They fear the company will insist on re
taining its nonunion men and thus par
ticipate prolongation of the present struggle.
The strikers declare they will never work
with the men who were Imported to take
There is a rumor that Edward Dickinson,
formerly general manager of the Union
Pacific, was called to New York to par
ticipate In the conference.
If negotiations for a settlement, which
seem to have made good progress, ulti
mately fnll. lt Is apparent that a more bit
ter conflict than ever will be waged.
There seems to be no doubt that the strlto
Will be extended throughout the entire
Harrlman system. Involving the boiler
bakers, blacksmiths and machinists. It
has been understood on good authority
that the International head of the ma
chinists, James O'Connell of Washington,
has met and talked with President Burt
In the east, but the result of any such
conference ha not been learned here. Mr.
O'Connell, it Is known, opposes baety or
radical action at this time and has cau
tioned his men to go slowly In any move
ment looking to a complication of the
battle., Nevertheless, assurances have
come from him that he and the entire cen
tral organization are In heartiest co
operation with the men who are combat
ting the Union Pacific and will so con
tinue until the fight is won.

With matinee and evening performances
today thla week'a bill at the Orpheum will
be brought to a close. It has scored a
genuine "hit," many pronouncing It equal
to the best of the season, and despite the
counter-attraction of Santa Claus' doings It
has attracted large audiences. Among the
offerings on the new bill opening mat
inee tomorrow one very unusual feature Is
announced. Captain Webb's educated seals
and sea lions will give their unique and
remarkable performance, which Is the first
of the kind to be presented on a local
stage. They have been taught to do a
clever and varied lot of tricks that are
said to be wonderful In them, and appeal
with almoit a human Instinct for sympa
thy and admiration.

SCHOOL RUNS RIGHT ALONG
Business of the Stanberry Normal la
affected by Tana-led
"One of the most tangled pieces of liti
gation that has appeared on the books of
the federal courts of Missouri Is the one
affecting the ownership of the property
formerly In possession of the Stanberry,
Mo., Normal school association," said
Charlea H. Haskell, deputy United States
marshal of St. Joseph, who was here yes
terday. "The Stanberry Normal school Is
one of the great educational Institutions
of Missouri and Messrs. Robblns and Moore
have made It a better seat of learning than
It ever was before, according to those who
are In a position to know. As present con
ditions stand there Is a judgment for a
small sum against the Stanberry Normal
School association, and just who of the long
list of men Interested In the property, past
and present, are responsible is a question
yet to be determined in the federal courts.
The present litigation can In no wise effect
the standing or efficiency of the school un
der present ownership."
