BIG RALLY OF UNION LABOR
Strikers Begin Arrangements for Great
Hut Meeting in Omaha.
tXPECT TWELVE THOUSAND TO TURN OUT
ObJr of lemeatratloa, Strike
Leader. Declare, I to Pat the
Point at Inane Plainly
Before the People.
At conference of strike leaders yes
terday It was decided to hold la the near
future In Omaha a mass meeting cf all
organized labor. "The chief object," said
leader, "will be to put before the body
plainly the point at Issue In the strike,
and especially tbn treatment accorded the
strikers by President. Burt."
Action taken Wednesday whereby the
number of policemen on duly around the
bop grounds was doubled Is offered by
the strikers as the Immediate cause of this
Step. As one strike leader put It:
"Wednesday the three policemen who
have been on duty at the shop gates were
taken off because they had become
acquainted ' with the nun and were too
lenient. In their place came six new
policemen, two at each gale. This actioa
was taken at a time when there was
absolutely no call for it. Everything was
and has been quiet down there, and thoxe
men are not neceaeary there for any rea
aons of protection of person and property.
"This action la Just a direct slap at us
from President Burt and It shows that he
Is atlll actively on the aggressive. jn
New York City he asked us not to hand It
to him so hard In the newspapers, and
Bow he comes back and gives us this, while
be la pretending meanwhile, that be will
call a conference shortly.
"Now there are 12,000 membera of organ
ised labor in Omaha and we are going to
get them together In the largest mass
meeting ever held and bring this before
them. We will have a monster parade,
with banda and general enthusiasm, and
It will be a big affair. Such an event will
do much to awaken the general public to
the merits of the case.".
Chief of Police Donahue aaya that the
force of policemen at the ahop grounds has
not been doubled. He says that there Is
atlll on duty but one officer at each gate,
JOIN OLD STRIKERS
Locomotive Wood Worker and PI pe
ine a Desire to Get Into Com
Locomotive wood workers and plpemen
who struck at the Union Pacific ahops last
Monday because they were ordered to work
on the premium scale system wish to be
come actively identified with the machin
ists, blacksmiths and boiler makers who
have been out on atrlke tor the same rea
son during the last seven months.
Yesterday both the wood workers and
plpemen met and appointed committees to
confer with the other strikers and ask for
representation on their joint executive com
mittee. Both meetings were held at
O'Noill's hall. Sixteenth and Cuming streets.
This action makes It apparent that these
latest recruits to the striking forcea mean
buainess aa much aa any of their predeces
sors. Thla ia a surprise to some of the
machinists and boiler makers, who thought
and aaid openly at first that the wood work
ers and plpemen would go back abortly.
MAY JOIN PLUMBERS' UNION
flrlklac laloa raclfl. Flpemea
Likely to Be Accepted la
Official organisation of the Union Pacific
striking plpemen under the American
Federation of Labor.- set for yesterday,
has been postponed for a few days. This
ia because there now aeema some chance
that the plpemen will be received Into the
local plumbers' union, and the delay la
to await a definite answer from that or
ganization. Plumbers have always, heretofore, re
fused to let their fellow craftsmen at the
shops join the union, because of the dis
crepancy In wages. The plumber about
town geta from 40 to 0 centa aa hour,
while those at the shops get only SO cents.
Yet the shopman plumber makes as
much or more money than his city col
league, for be worka all the year around
all day long, while the other has odd jobs,
losing hours and sometimes days between.

and How Kstlmatea oa
W. R. Bennett has been examined by the
creditors cf the bankrupt company before
Referee Clapp In federal court. He was
placed on the stand for the purpose of Im
parting information regarding the manner
of conducting his business, of keeping the
books and the relations of the Bennett
Building company to the W. R. Bennett
company. The examination waa conducted
by V. W. Morsman.
Tho aituatlon was at all timea a severe
train on the witness, reaching a critical
point shortly before the noon adjournment
during a recital of the history of hla failure.
All the misery of the last two months and
the bitterness of his defeat rose in him and
choked his voice. The court room became
absolutely still execpt for the voice of the
speaker and those present gazed at the pa
pers on which they were making notes or
out of the windows.
Mr. Bennett explained how one friend,
whose came he could not give, had been
unable to furnish the financial support he
had promised and that the total cost of
building and stock had risen $100,000 above
what they had expected.
"Some Irons Were Burned."
"I have had all slaters and no brothers
to help me in this enterprise," he said.
"They have done all they could, but there
waa much they could not do. For Instance,
there is an art in the marking of goods,
which should be attended to by one of the
Arm. There were so many such things to
be seen to. It was Impossible for me to
cover all of the ground. And ao," he
finished, with some difficulty, "some of
the Irons In the fire were burned."
The examination brought out the holders
of the Bennett Building company stock aa
follows: W. R. Bennett, 2.893 shares; S. F.
Bennett, 2,000; F. W. Brown, 160; Irving
Allison, 1. These shares had never been
paid for and there Is now an agreement
between W. R. Bennett and J. E. Baum
whereby the latter will possess them In
case he and his associates can secure the
composition of a company to manage the
Bennett store. They are held now In
escrow by O. W. Ralney. "Mr. Baum,"
said Mr. Bennett, "is the only one who
has shown any disposition to befriend the
Bennetts In the reorganization of a com
pany and fix mattera so that we might
be given positions from which we could
look forward to some time being on our
The shareholders of the W. R. Bennett
company were given as follows: W. R.
Bennett, 378 shares; S. F. Bennett, 61
shares; Cornelia E. Bennett, 40 shares;
Mrs. Wade, 40 shares, nnd Mrs. Brown, 40
shares. One hundred and thirty-nine shares
are atlll in the name of Mr. Bennett'a
mother, who Is now dead. According to
the memoranda carried by W. R. Bennett
the lot on which the Bennett building
stands cost $150,000 and the barn Mullding
The testimony of W. R. Bennett was
conttnued yesterday afternoon, when a
number of minor points were brought out.
This ended the session of the creditors.
The various departments owned by Indi
viduals in the Bennett store will open to
