12 TTTE OMATTA DATTjT BEE: PATURT1AY, JANITAHY .11. 100.1. BIG STRIKE IS TO CONTINUE Hegotiatiom for Settlement Broken Off at Coafcrecce Ti.&aj Morning. BURT INSISTS OS P.ECE WORK SYSTEM Telia (Mrlkrra Thr Can Serer Work for I nlon Parlflc I ntll Thrr (onirnt to IJlve Ptmilnm Senle a Trlnl. After almost two months of dillydallying In the rjprctntlon of a BPttlrmrnt, tho Vnlon rnrlflc at rlk la now starting In full Winn upon the third ijhatm of lt career. Frpaident Burt and the IrnuVrs of the ptrlk rs met In a momrntary conference yester day, and thn result la war to the knife for another period of Indefinite extent. All conferences are now declared off, and all chance for them Is annihilated until new conditions arise. President McNeil of the International Brotherhood of Holler Makers and Iron Bhlp Builders was spokesman for the strik ers at the conference, and the route by which tho agreement to continue hostili ties was reached is exposed In the follow ing dialogue which took place between him and Mr. Burt: Mr. McNeil Underntandlng that the con ference In New York was postponed till Bow In order that the actual attitude of the men regarding piece work might be learned, I now wish to state that we have canvassed the men on this proposition, and they have voted unanimously against It. I therefore announce that we will never Work under the premium scale system. Mr. nurt And I reply that you will never work for the Tnlon raelflc tinder any ether, system. I am sorry that you will not give it a trial, for I think it would prove a good thing If tried. I wish to congratu late the men on their conduct of th? strike, but I think the premium scale proposition would be a good thing for tem. I think It would mean more money to the men. You abould give It a trial. Conference la Brief. W. R. McKeen. Kuperlntendent of motive power for the Union Pacific, waa present at the conference. He and Mr. Burt were the sole railroad representatives there. Seventeen strikers attended. Greetings and introductions took some time, Mr. Hurt and Mr. McKeen meeting every man with a handshake. When the discussion was Anally reached, It did not last more than ten or fifteen minutes. . The entlro con ference continued only twenty minutes, When the men, having delivered their .Ultimatum and received Mr. Burt's In re turn, ,left the office. Strikers at once repaired to Labor temple, Where they went Into executive session to adopt plans for further conduct of the atrlke. The men were unanimous for mak ing the fight mere aggressive than ever, and there were three principal moves deter mined upon for the Immediate future. The first step will be to bring about. If possible, a general fight on the Union Pa cific system. At first this move will ex tend only to the shops, where U will be the effort to bring out every man who carries a card. This will bo undertaken locally through the Central Labor union, accord ing to the plan already outlined. A special meeting of the union has been called for I Sunday afternoon, and the matter will come up then. At the same meeting the scheme for the tlg mass meeting of all organized labor In Omaha will be taken up and plana perfected to have this held under tho auspices of the Central Labor union. The strikers will go still further and ask the American Federation of Labor point blank to make the attack general over the Union Paclflo system. Tbla proposition will b brought before the general officers and the bead lodges of the conductors, the trainman and the englnemen. As to Southern Pacific. As regards pulling out the shopmen on the Southern Pacific, nothing Is planned yet, for the strikers do not believe this will be necessary. Yet they are confident that they have the Southern Pacific men olid, and can call them out when desired. The strikers who attended the confer ence were: Machinists, Wilson, Grace, Mildred, Mulr and Brltton; blacksmiths, Kline, White, Reuf, Hender, Qrieb and Bowles; boiler makers, McNeil, Kennedy, Douglas, O'Donnell; machinists' helper, Schomel; plpeman, Innes. After tho conference Mr. McNeil laid: "We have shown them a good fight so far, ' but from now on It will be hotter than ever. I am going to my Kansas City 'headquar ters tonight. There will be no more con ference with Mr. Burt for a time." Mr. Wilson said: "Mr. Burt delivered this ultimatum expecting that It would at once crumble our ranks, that the men would break and begin going back to work. He'll not be long discovering his mistake. As a matter of fact, I think that March1 1 la about his limit. Statement for the Company. At Union Pacific headquarters yesterday afternoon this official statement was made concerning the strike situation: "Piecework has been a successful sys tem In the shops of our company for sis months past, and the committee repre entlng the strikers was told that no change In the system could be made at this Stfeacne, cach- ache, tnd man j other aches to which women are peculiarly eubject are generally the result of a diseased condition of the womanly organism. When this dis eased condition is cured, sidearhe, back ache, headache, etc., are cured also. - Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription establishes regularity, dries the drains which weakeu women, heals inflamma tion and ulceration and cures female weakness. When these diseases are cured the aches they cause are also cured.

I took arveral bottle of ' favorite Prmcnpiina ' and of the 'Golden Medical Diacovery.' I have no heart ache now, no backache, and no pain in my tide any more. No beanng-duwn pain any more.

About 83 per cent of the work done la the Omaha shops la by piecework; 100 per cent of It at Armstrong, and from 90 to l')0 per cent at other places. "We now have more men In the shops here than we ever had before, and their character and skill Is all that we could ask. A reduction will soon be necessary, because our busiest season Is now over. The same condition applies to all other points on the line. With new shops and new machinery here, the same number of men can do much more work than formerly. In point of work done here, we have never turned out so many engines In the history of the shops as during the last six months. The same condition applies at Cheyenne. "If we were to take back the strikers now. It would mean that our force In the shops here would be crowded out, and this we dislike to do; but we would not have room for two forces. "Our train service Is becoming better, trains last week being 100 per cent better than during previous weeks. We are hav. ing some trouble this week because of high winds and stormy weather out west, for which the strikers will probably claim credit. Last week we put twice as much coal Into Nebraska as during Any previous week on the road, and every mine at Rock Springs Is running at full capacity. "Six new engines have Just arrived, and four more are on the road, and an In definite number of new engines will con tinue to arrive. We will soon have engines to burn. "This strike Is over so far as the com pany Is concerned. The men quit the service last June, and we hired new men to nil their place. Tbat'a all there Is to It." OQDEN, Utah, Jan. 0. Railroad men on all roads into Ogden expect that the boiler makers on the Southern Pacific, Short Lino and Oregon Railway and Navigation com pany will be ordered out today. The local union officials state that they expect tele grams to that effect from the head authori ties of the union. No word has yet been received. WARRANTS NOT CALLED FOR Connty Commissioner Proposed to Caneel Those Dated Prior to Jan nary. tS9S. ,founty Commissioner A. C. Rarte has had prepared and will submit to the Board of County Commissioners at Saturday's meeting the following resolution: Whereas, There are in the hands of the county clerk a number of warrants Issued prior to January 1, 1U8, and according to statute and the opinion of the County at torney, said warrants can be cancelled and the amounts credited to the various funds from which they are drawn; therefore, be It Resolved, That the county clerk be and he Is hereby instructed to cancel all war rants Issued prior to the 1st of January, 1MX, and that the same be credited to their respective funds. In explanation of his resolution Commis sioner Harte said: "None of the warrants Is for more than $50, but there are a great many of them, and so small that the per sons to whom payable will not take the trouble to come and get them, - Thus the money represented on their face la tied up and doing no good when the county might as well be having the use of It. I don't know what the total amount represented will be, but I judge that 90 per cent of the warrants. Involving as they do witness and Jury fees, are on the general fund, and wo can use more money in that fund very handily." Announcements of tho Theaters.

A letter received yesterday from Captain Wallace Taylor says there Is much con. fusion In the Philippines over the condl tlon of the currency. Nearly all business Is transacted on the basis of payments In Mexican money and the pries of all produce varies with the value of that money In gold, so that it Is practically Impossible to know today what things are to cost to morrow. He writes: "The contabulary (with which he Is now connected) Is kept busy principally In the Islands of Samar and Leyte with the so-called fanatlcos, a sect which, being Christian In name, takes some of the doctrines of the Mahommedan re ligion and preaches that those who die In conflict with the American authorities sre assured of heavenly blessings. They wear amulets and seem to court death, fighting regardleBa of numbers or hope of success. At the same time a dozen Americana are sufficient to defeat a hundred or more cf them, as tbey are not well armed and do not know how te use the arms they have." Naran Mrs, a I la Dtacbarcesl.

WARRIOR EISER RELENTS Rents Two 'Phones of His Antagonist In Four Tears' Battle, PEACE REIfiNS O'ER A BLOODY FIELD Ills Rome Folks Think There Moat ' Be Rome Mistake and Banish the Enemy's Cohorts from Ills Caatle. Away with the bloody eword, the Red Cross society and the hospital ambulance; up with the white flag of truce, the song of joy and the price of public utilities' serv ice! John O. Yelser has rented two tele phones, tne war Is at an end and all man kind dwelling In peace and harmony throughout the jurisdiction! Allah be praised. Ail that this means can be appreciated only by those whose retrospective eye, traveling the gory corridors of the tag end of the last century, or from 1897 to 1901, sees and recognises the scars, the sbraslons and the blood stains left by Yelser and the Nebrsska Telephone company in their' struggle through the courts, the populist conventions and the state legislature of Nebraska. Yelser was In the legislature of 1897 and succeeded In having the Board of Transpor tation empowered to control and regulate the telephone companies. Subsequently he went to the Omaha office of the Nebraska company, which .was then charging $5 per month for telephone service, and demanded that a telephone be placed In his law office for (3, alleging this to be a fair rental. Three Starred Silver Dollars.' To make It good he formally tendered three silver dollars. Those same three dollars laid on the desk of Auditor H. T. Coe, where Yelser put them, for more than two years. No official would touch them and the janitors came to view them as sa cred appurtenances to touch which would be to court certain and Immediate death. Then began Yelser's four years' war. From Judge Cunningham R. Scott of tho district bench he secured an alternative writ of mandamus and then a peremptory writ. The company carried it up and the supreme court held that Yeleer's relief lay only In the State Board of Transportation. This board and Yelser went to the private office of President C. B. Yost of the tele phone company and for three weeks Yelser had the whole company. Its auditors and its workmen, on the carpet telling every thing they knew, from the depth of the underground conduits to the helghth of the telephone poles, and from the thickness of the wire Insulation to the number of pay days In February. Left High In the Air. Just as he was ready to put on an expert to tell from this evidence what charges should be, the telephone company's friends secured from the supreme court a decision that the transportation board, which was hearing the evidence, was unconstitutional, and thereby left Mr. Yelser so high In the air that he couldn't get down In time to catch up with the procession. Meanwhile he had forced the populist convention of the state to incorporate a telephone regu lation clause In Its platform and. forced Judge Holcomb to atand on the plank. . He flooded the state with a brief the slie of an unexpurgated edition of Balzao and he give the newspaper paragraphers aomethlng to writs about seven times a week. He appealed to the common law, the pride of the people, all the gods of mythology and authenticity, and all the populists of Ne braska, with and without whiskers. . Commenced In 1897, his fire was hot until 1901, when he took a Anal defeat and decided that until somebody else was will. Ing to put up for the ammunition, his battle with the octopus would better be aban doned. Gives In at Last. Meanwhile the octopus had pocketed his three silver slmoleons, given him credit on Its books with that amount and 'Charged against him all costs of litigation. Mr. Yelser at first used to run up a nag on the top of his office building to let his, wife knew when he would get home for dinner,' and kept In communication with the out side world and the court house by means of window banners. Never until this week has be given In and consented to patronize the company. He argues that he Is Justified now, because house 'phones cost but $3 and his office 'phone, on circuit B. only $3.75, Instead of So. Cronp. The peculiar cough which Indicates eroup Is usually well known to the mothers of croupy children. No time should be lost In tho treatment of It, and for this purpose no medicine has received more universal ap proval than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Do not waste valuable time In experiment ing with untried remedies, no matter how highly they may be recommended, but give this medicine as directed and all symptoms of croupy will quickly disappear.

Wassels of ths Twen ty-second Infantry at Fort Crook has been authorized to accept ths position of mili tary instructor at the Omaha High school Csptaln WaBsels Is said by other officers to be one of ths most competent and energetlo of the younger officers of the regiment. Last year he was In charge of the rifle range at the Winnebago reservation while the Twenty-second regiment was at prac tice, and later was ons of the officers in charge of the competitive target shooting at Fort Riley. Ths captain Is expected to ar range his work at the High school so that It will not Interfere with bis duties at the post. UOCTOKS KMJOHSU HUKPICIDB Because Its Formula Is Submitted to Them. Alexander McMUUan, M. D., a prominent physician of Lansing, Mich., writes: "On three esses I have tried Herplcide for dan druff and the result has been all that could be desired." Herplcide Is made upon an entirely new principle, that Is, that dandruff and falling hair are caused by a microbe that Infests the hair bulb, and, by destroying the ml crqbe one's hair Is bound to grow luxur iantly. Herplcide la the only hair remedy that claims to and really does destroy ths dandruff germs. Mortality Statistics.
