REFUSE TO TAKE PIECEWORK
Piptinen at Union Pacifio Shopi Eeject
President Burt's Ultimatum.
THEY QUIT WORK FOR HALF AN HOUR
Although Company Revoke IMece
ncrk Order for IMpemen, It Will
Endeavor to Enforce It on
President Burt chose Friday at the time
for tlio beginning of piecework la the t'nlon
raclflo shops, but the Inception did not re
sult happily for Mr. Burt, as twenty pipe
men laid down their tools and quit work as
soon as their foreman announced that thoy
wcrj to begin on the "premium scale"
method. Within half an hour hurried or
ders were received from headquarters re
voking the piecework ultimatum, and the
men, who bad been detained meanwhile, all
went back to work on the old basis.
Despite this result of bis first attempt
Mr. Burt will continue the campaign, which
be has planned In regular order. Next Mon
day Is the time set for the Introduction of
piecework among the woodworkers, and the
trial will be made Just aa If the Incident of
the plpemen had never occurred. As the
car men are already working piecework un
der a twelve months' agreement there Is
some chance that the woodworkers may ac
cept It. Strikers, however, are confident
that the woodworkers will stand by them
as did the plpemen and refuse to accept It.
They may be Influenced to this action by
the general dissatisfaction among the car
men, who have now been working the "pre
mium scale" since July.
Incident la Dramatic,
The encounter between plpemen and the
railroad company was dramatic. At 2
o'clock In the afternoon George Brown,
foreman over the plpemen, announced that
.beginning then piecework would prevail;
that the men would be paid so much for
putting In a collar, so much for bedding It,
o much for oiling up, so much for putting
In Injector pipes, and so on.
Without a word the plpemen and their
helpers laid down their tools and went into
the wash room. Brown asked them not to
l"ave the shop for a time, and reported the
facts to General Foreman John Turtle of
the shops. Turtle communicated with head
quarters by telephone, and shortly after
ward returned and told the plpemen that
they could go back to work as they bad
The plpemen at the shops are not strike
breakers, but old employes who have no or
ganization and have not struck.

FEENAN N0TTHEIR CHOICE
Coster Post Veterans Ask II is Re
moval from Soldiers' Re
The comrsdes of Cutter post. Grand Army
of the Republic, seem to have been given
some surprises by the county commission
ers, and to be of varying mind as to the
propriety of the course of some of their
own members. Recently the board ap
pointed M. J. Feenan, said to be a demo
crat, to succeed James W. Thompson, a re-'
publican, on the Soldiers' Relief commis
sion. Yesterday, when the board clerk
was about to read Feenan's bond for ap
proval, 8. H. DrUsbach, a comrade, arose
In the rear of the room and made protest
against the appointment of Feenan, saying
It had bien the wish of the post that
Thompson bo continued In the office, be
cause he had given splendid service and
general satisfaction, whereas a new man on
the commission, less acquainted with the
circumstances of the needy veterans, might
not be able to do so well.
Commissioner Harte Informed Mr. Dries
bach that the board had made the appoint
ment and now was merely considering the
bond, and that the only way the post
could mend matters would be to have
Feenan resign from the commission.
Mr. Driesbach replied that the law ex
pressly provides that the new board shall
make the appointment at Its first meeting
In January and that he and the others of
his committee had been on hand last Tues
day at the new board's first meeting and
were Informed then that the old board had
disposed of the matter, and now wished the
action reconsidered. He further said that
Feenan had been appointed on a committee
to promote Thompson's appointment and
that he (Driesbach) considered Feenan's
course "a very peculiar one." Commis
sioner O'Keeffe responded that Feenan told
him he didn't want the place, hadn't asked
for It and was surprised when he was In
formed he bad been given It. This left
Mr. Driesbach wondering how the board
had been persuaded to make the change of
men when the post had expressly endorsed
Commissioner Connolly declared with
some curtness that the board didn't have
to provide for any commission at all If it
didn't wish to, and that if there Is a fac
tional fight In the post It is no affair of the
commissioners and should be left to the
post to fight out wthln Itself. Mr. Dries
bach arsured the boad there la no fac
tional fight and the bond went to the Judi
ciary committee without further discus
sion, the poBt committee retiring In silence.

BURT PROMISES CONFERENCE
President Tells Strikers He Will Meet
Them Again Within Two
The press committee of the strikers yes
terday morning gave out the following:
'We have communicated a second time
with President Burt and he has promised
to grant ua a conference not later than two
weeka from last Thursday. That will bring
the beginning of the session on Thursday,
January 29, and perhaps earlier.
"We will give Mr. Burt Just that long
and after that there will be something
doing If we do not get the conference. The
railroad president may think he Is staving
us off and thus gaining time on us during
this cold weather. The fact la that it no
conference develops by January 29, accord
ing to the agreement, Mr. Burt will find
himself in the thick of the hottest strike
he haa ever known.
'Our action will be simple enoughf We
will simply pull out the men along the
Southern Pacific, which is what Harrtman
wishes to avoid. John McNeil, president
of the International Brotherhood of Boiler
Makers and Iron Shipbuilders, will leave
here next Monday for a trip clear to tho
coast over the Southern Pacific territory,
and that is what h Is going for. He. will
bolster up the men and put them In readi
ness, and whan we say so they will go out
aud be with us. The conference will avoid
