MILL AND HARRIMAN AT ARMS

TturwattoM B114 !
SeavtU, VTillm Hill Flua Cull
Blar ImsKlarratloB HTem.it.
On tha v of probably th. greatast Im
migration movement in th. history of th.
fsst is thrMtened aa outbreak ot th. old
VUl-Harrlmaa rivalry which proml.es a
Ciiturbano. In railroad affairs and a aerloua
complication of the Immigration situation
which It waa aupposed had been placed
upon a aat. equilibrium aa the result of an
agreement entered into by Hill and Harrl-
man. That agreement was. that Hill should
keep out of Harrlman's territory on the
Paclflo and that Harrlman should not tres
pass upon Hill's exclusive grouud further
up th. coast. It Is the threatened dis
solution ot this compact that causes th.
apprehension. Both magnates ar. under
stood to have taken under serious consid
eration th. advlslblllty of dissolving their
Tha story of the HUl-Harrlman affair 1. a
long one. Mr. Hill I. authority for the
statement that he and Harrlman made auch
an agreement aa thl.. Oa his last visit
to the north Pacific he gave out th. state-
Bent that by such a league he had agreed i
not to build south Into California and liar- j
liman not to extend his lines to Puget
Bound. In th. meantime Mr. Hill begins to
lew. with grave apprehension, the pending
results of the Union Pacific's aggressive
campaign for colonising the northwest and
becomes dissatisfied with the "agreement."
Harrlman has too good a gateway at
Spokane to suit the merger magnate and
ao It is now said that both men are on
the verge ot breaking their contract and
cutting Into the field single-handed and in
dependent for all they can get, thua prom
ising as hitter a warfare, probably, as ever
was fought in the west.
Plaas AaraTresslv r.np.l...
It la a well known fact that last year
the Union Pacific laid the plans for its ex
tensive northwest colonisation. It estab
lished a central agency at Chicago under
direction ot G. M. McKlnney and branch
agencies all over the west for the aole pur
pose of Invading the Hill territory with
home settlers. It was but natural, there
fore, that Harrlman would want to get
Jnarer Seattle and the Puget sound country
Avrlta bis own Hoe. than Spokans, which
olut he reaches by means of his Oregon
Abort Use from Portland. It Is understood
also that Hill did not have to court Harrl
nil a very persistently In order to get him
to take under consideration the dissolution
of their agreement. The fuel that Hill
threatens to drag his tracks on down into
California, with terminal, at Eureka and
nther nearby points, thus placing his lines
ili a position to succesnfully compete with
ie Union Pacific there, seems to have no
deterrent effect upoa the Harrlman Inter
nals. As it is. Harrlman with h'.a gats-
way at Spokane Is able to atve. the Bur
liogton a pretty good rub for Missouri
river traffic, and If he Is enabled to build
Into Seattle, either from Spokane or Port
land, he will manifestly be a big gainer.
Harrlman once made a proposition to Hill
for a traffic agreement over the Northern
Paclfio into Seattle, hut tbla was rejected
and then a threat was made by Harrlman
to extend hi. line ud from .Portland to
Seattle, hut this seems to have been side
tracked by thl. mutual compact. . Twelve
years ago th. Union Paclflo people went so
far a. to have a aurvey made for a line
Into Seattle, so that their longing to get
into the Hill country la na new thing.
California Bids Bill Enter.
Of course If the Harrlman project la
carried out Hill would practically be
obliged to run hi. Northern Pacific down
into California and this Is what he Is said. I
to have determined on. Owing to the un
settled and unsatisfactory status of rail
road affairs In California HtU'a advent, It
la said, would be met with great delight.
In fact, it la reliably reported that since

Numerous element, and condition, enter
into this situation, but it is believed that
if the Harrlman Interests could be dis

colonizing the northwest, recognized a.

they are vigorously and aggressively press

seems to think that this could be done

The "Burning Bush" evangelists of the
Holiness association, which Is to hold serv
ices at Schllts roof garden for ten days, ar
rived in Omaha yesterday. The party
la composed of Mrs. Kent White of Denver,
Arthur F. Inuler and wife of Chlcaao and
Black Susan" of Syracuse, N. Y. The
party will be Joined here Saturday by Duke
M. Farson and E. L Harvey ot Chicago.
This sect hss been recently at work In Chi
cago and the New England states, where
they have been dubbed "Jumpers," because
of their peculiar action during their reli
gious services, none ot the members ap
parently being able to control their nerves
and muscles, but Jumping, clipping their
hands and shouting during exhortations
and prayers. The sect has existed In Kan-
aaa for eeveral years and their services
have attracted the attention of crowd, be
cause of their novelty.

taxes. South Omaha and the county gen
erally will gain in smaller proportion, and
some of the proceeds should be In the offi
cial strong boxes by the close of the year.
The records now being prepared In tho
office of the city treasurer are to go Into
permanently bound books, containing com
plete information and description, of prop
erty, the books becoming the property ot
the county treasurer's ofilce, where they
receive the addition of similar books from
all over the county. Although the books
from the city treasurer's office should be
complete on May 1 they will not be ready.
and It will be necessary for Treasurer Hen
nings to go Into court and ask for an ex
tension of time. He thinks the work can
be done about May 24.
Complete Dellaqnent List.
For the first time in the history of the
city of Oraaha a complete delinquent tax
list la to be compiled and published with
the name ot every property owner who has
not contributed bis Share toward the mu
nicipal government. This feature is a new
one and will continue in vogue until the
law is changed, but nevei again will the
record go back more than one year from
the time It appears In the newspapers.
Briefly, the scavenger act provides that
the country treasurer shall keep a perma
nent record ot delinquent taxes, showing
the kind and amount of every tax against
each tract, aa well aa the total amount
due. This record shall have a formal
statement attached to It and shall be filed
with the clerk of the district court not
later than July 1. It then becomes a peti
tion and Is the commencement ot a ault
to enforce the taxes.
This petition, when filed this year, will
Institute one of the very larrest suits ever
begun in Omaha, containing thousands of
names and descriptions ot property, the
taxes concerned mounting Into the millions.
Notice of the filing of the petition and the
amount due on each tract Is then published
four weeks. Those who wish te contest
the tsxes must file answers by September
1. A default decree Is entered sgalnat all

Yoat Confer, with Krlkera.
President Yost of the Nebraska Tele
phone company, who has JuHt returned to
the city, held a conference at hi. office
ye.terday with about forty linemen, ground
workers, and inspectors over the Issues of
the present strike. As only a few ot these
men had Joined the strikers no settlement
was due from thl. conference.
"There was nothing to settle," said
President Yost, "for the men all told ma
they had no grievance and were perfectly
satisfied with their lot. One who had

matters, but the business agent forbad,
th. strikers to com. and I suppos. only
a few of tbos. present had struck. I don't
know how the strikers expect to reach any
settlement when tbey arbitrarily refuse to
meet us on our own invitation. We ar.
always ready to confer with our men when
they ar. dissatisfied. W. fall to sr. any
grounds tor dissatisfaction now. W. ar.
paying $2.75 a day for city men, which I.
more than they pay at Kansas City, where
they get better rates than w. do. As I un
derstand it all the men ask Is for us to
make some further recognition of their,
union, which seems to me unnecessary and
uncalled for so long as we pay union
wagea and better. We will not submit to
any one dictating to us who wa shall em
ploy and who we shall discharge. W. must
attend to those things ourselves."
