secured the discharge ot a member of the
union for expressing his preference tor

It will be aeen that practically no differences exist aa to boura ot work or wagea

how they ahall work.
The Telephone company will at any time take up any question of wagea or houra
ot labor with its employes of any class and treat It In a fair and liberal spirit, but
so far no complaint baa been made by any ot them. At the aame time the company
claims that'ln order to handle ita business properly It must reserve the right to select
Ita own employee, and direct their work, its claim being: "No person shall be refused
employment, or in any way discriminated against on account ot membership or non
membership in any labor organisation; and there ahall be no discrimination against
er Interference with any employe who la not a member of any labor organisation by
members of such organization."

About thirty retail merchants met In the

One of the members ot the new order.
mention of which waa made In The Bee
early In the week, said last night to a re
porter that the idea waa to put a stop to
the aelllng of commodttlea ot all kinds to
those who are known to be alow in paying
bills. A committee on membership was
appointed and another meeting will be held
on tha evening of April 23.
The following resolution was adopted:
Whereas, a bill for an act relating to ex
emption had parsed both the senate and
house of representatives of the state of
iNeorasKa, and wnereaa eald bill provided
for a reasonable protection for the retail
merchant from the deadbeat, the cheat
and the fraud, and was a measure favor
able to the honest man, and would If en
acted Into law have greatly eliminated
that undesirable class of citizens commonly
known as deadbeats and promote honeety
and uprighteousness among society; and.
V hereas, Oovernor Mickey has seen fit
to aid and abet dishonesty by vetoing S.
F. K7. when the merchants had everv rea
son to believe that be would do otherwise.
Resolved, mat we, the South Omaha Re
tail Dealers' In regular meeting assem
bled, condemn said action of the governcr,
and call upon all buslnene men to do like
wise, and ask their assistance to retire
Mr. Mickey as aoon as possible.
