bave oo objections to granting the demands
of the hod carriers.
The teamsters' strike has had the effect
of putting a atop to all teaming of the
numerous tisotfer companies, except those
which have signed the scale. It likewise
has penetrated the wholesale districts and
sent the teams of tho wholesalers back to
the barns, has put the packers out of the
running for the present and made It neces
sary foi the butchers to haul their own
meat from the packing houses or go with
out, and last, but certainly not least. It
has tied up all the coel companies In th
city, save the lone one that signed the
agreement. This cut quite a figure, desplto
the fait that winter has begun to break
and signs of spring are appreciably visible.
A tremendous rush for coal came on all
aides thk day before the strike began, and
even yet, with the coal dealers helpless,
wholly unable to "deliver the goods," they
ar harrasscd by eager patrons. With the
congestion of the transfer companies the
department stores who "teamed" through
thesa companies and other smaller con
cerns of all descriptions and all over the ,
cuy are v iutu ucuuon uu
den Brothers, who do their own teaming,
are xorcea to contrive oinur mcnos ui ui
liverlng their sales.
Mast Do Soniethlaa; Soon.
A member of one of the transfer firms
last night said regarding the situation:
"We are not yet seriously Inconvenienced,
for wa had our business pretty well up
when the pinch came, and therefore we
have taken no Immediate action toward
reviving business, but we shall of course
be compelled to do something If the strike
lasts. However, we shall wait until Mon
day at least, when It Is probable all tho
transfer men will get together and discuss
the situation and. see what Is best to be
done. Of course the Interests that we serve
are so numerous and so diversified that It
will be impossible for us to allow matters
to atand still."
The coal dealers seem as undecided as
the transfer men. A representative of the
coal dealers combine said last night
menf of our case. W have the entire sub-
teot under consideration and will be ready
to act at tha proper time, i may
you need look for nothing until the first of
the week. Of courso we are all tied up and
this Stat of affairs cannot last. It will
have to be remedied somehow. W do not
car to discuss the strike or any of the
conditions lesdlng thereto."
The tesmsters met last night at their
headquarters. 114 North Fifteenth street,
and put In th evening solidifying their
body. A large number of men wer In at
tendance throughout the night. The men
appear firm In helr atand. Many of them
are striking for th first time.
Keeeaaltloa Mala TbIbb:.
It ts a notable fact In, this entire strike
altuatlon that recognition of the union Is
the prim element. It the teamsters could
secur that theywould practically gain all
they are after. Their proposition Is ar
ranged a as to take In a demand for
shorter limits, cbanRe In tha rules of using
chutes, regulation In driving their teama
and. of course, the Increas of wagea, which
la th Important question outside of th on
essential point of recognition. Th restau
rant men. It accorded a due recognition of
their Union and six., days, per week, would
have no further causa for grievance. Tho
carpenter want a simple advanoe- of pay
from 40 to 60 cent an hour and the leather
workers want reduced hours, with slight In.
cresses. The hod carriers when they
truck March It. went after more money.
But la the main the fight hinges on the
anion proposition and union men assert
that if they lose the fight It will be a dis
tinct, triumph of the Business Men's asso
ciation and the Influences back of It over
organised labor that will be fatally felt
throughout th country. They regard the
present as on of the roost supreme (tests
of unionism that has ever been mad.
Th fight between the restaurant workers
and their employers Is of such a wide scope

these public eating houses for one, two
and three meals a day. The lines are
tightly drawn between the contending fac
tlons and each avows the determination of
"fighting It out along this line." Tet the
general consensu of opinion Is that this
will be a struggle of short duration. There
Is a prevailing aentimant in soma quarters
that the patrons of these restaurants may
endeavor to exert soma Influence toward af
fecting a aettlement If matters become to'o
C'rlals Monday Mornl.s,
Thus far the restaurant men are not
making any apparent moves or discussing
their affairs. Except In on or two In
stances all the placas whose owners had
not atgned the scales were darkened last
night. The hordes of nocturnal patrons
bad to either do without their usual mid
night lunches or hunt new placea to get
them. The Henshaw had a few colored
waltera and waa doing a small business
but It waa understood that these waiters
had simply been borrowed for the night.

ere, cooks and helpers as possible between
this and Monday morning, when It Is un
derstood a heroic effort at reopening and
resuming business will be made. If this
Is don the prospects are that matters will
reach a crisis, for the union forces are re
solved to resist any each move.
Already talk of boycott Is heard. It
originates perhaps from the supposed pur
pose of the Business Men's association to
boycott any restaurant keeper persisting
In remaining outside of the association and
affiliating with ths union men. Leaders
of the waiters and allied unions do not hes
itate to say that If this Is to b the plan
It will precipitate more serious and com
plicated trouble. Other unions also take
the same position and announce their In
tention of standing by the restaurant
workers and . union restaurant ' keepers ' in
such an event. Ultimately, therefore, the
wnoie name may be fought out on these
Mses. the fight resolving Itself down to a
struggle between organized labor, regard-
less of trad lines and th recently es-
laousnea Business Men's association.
Members of this association have given
out their word that they Intend to make
strong fight for what they believe to be
their rights. One of them yesterdsy said:
"Organised labor In Omaha haa th fight
Of It extstence on its hands now. In all
former struggles It has not been opposed
by any systematic organisation, but w are
banded together and mean business. We
will resist them to the last. We are forced
to take thla action In defense of our own
rights and for the preservation of our own
No Vloleaee to Dat.
Thus far at least do violence has been
committed aa a result ct th strikes. Ye..
terday at noon, the time set for the closing
of th twenty-nln restauranta In tha city
affected by the strike order, dens crowds
gathered In front of many of th restau.
rants and policemen were In evidence realy
to quell any disturbance. Th waiters,
male and female, and all th rest of the
union workers, quit on the minute and
very time on emerged from th place of
Business a yell went up from the union
men outside and many of the sympathetic
bystanders. In a few Instances, where
Hungry members of the community en
tercd these restaurants after the strike
was on, they were accosted by union men,
but the restraining influence of the officers
and more conservative union men sup
pressed any trouble. Some of th girl
waiters allowed their enthusiasm to assert
Itself rather freely, but did not lay them
selves liable In any way.
Th girls figure prominently In 'this
strlks. Th strike contomplates an ad
vane of $1 a week for them and th reduc
tloa to six days' labor Instead of aeven,
th sama aa th men ask, and aa the law
provldea for women la all classes of lsbor.
Th teamsters In their meetings have
been counaeled against violence, and yes
terday they had th opportunity of putting
into execution some of th resolutions they
had made. On of th M. R. Smith wagons
waa being driven by a. nonunion driver,
when a union teamstsr overtook him and
Joined by others, sought to Induce th non
union man to quit hla work and Join th
strikers. They did not succeed in their
overtures, but abstained from violence,
All the new strikers are being admonished
by Union Pactfio men, who have been at
th business tor nearly a year, to refrain
from overt acta o( any kind,
CENTRAL LABOR UNION MEETS
Stormy Seasloa at th Body Broasja
to Afcraat Closa by SaaJea
A atormy session of th Ceutral Labor
union In which the strikes, politics and ac
rtmonlous cersonalltle bad part was
j brought t a sudden end at 11 o'clock last
night by a motion to adjourn, which pre-
vailed before th regular order of business
had been disposed of.
So far as practical work In th sttlk is
concerned, the union did nothing. W. H,
Bell, president, left the chair and Intro
duced a motion which had tor Its object the
estsbllthment of a court of Inquiry to con
slat of eleven members, fiv from the Cen
trsl Labor union aad fiv from th Busl
ness Men's ssaoclation, with th elevent
man chosen by the ten, before whom should
com all questions raised In th proposed
wag acalea of th unions now Involved i
trouble, either aa strike or lockout, th
mea to return to work at .wages which pre
vailed before May 1. and to receive pay
from that dat upon tb finding of th
board, after th meaner of th late coal
strike commission. The motion waa op
posed by ths representatives of every uulo
now out of work with the exception of the
bricklayers, and after long debate was de
feated by an overwhelming vote.
E. A. Benson, through O. P. Shrum, at
tempted to get before the union with an
explanation and a statement of his position
with reference to the recently formed
Business Men's sssoclatlon. While the
meeting waa in session Hugh F. Mcintosh
called Shrum out of the room, and when
he returned he handed to tbe secretary a
letter which the officer started to read
when some member In the front of the
house saw the letterhead of the Benson
committee. A motion was made that the
letter be nnt read. But two members of
the union, O. P. Shrum and Edward Augus
tine, spoke in favor of hearing the letter
and upon vote, which was reached after
considerable talk, the union expressed its
opinion of Ersstus A. Benson by refusing
to permit him to get before the member
with a communication which he did not
try to deliver In person. Previous to this
Mr. Shrum wss called down by some of
the members who suspected him of trying
to play into the hands of the pop-rump
candidate for mayor. Just after the roll
book of the union had been returned to
the secretary's desk by the sergeant-at-arms,
Mr. Shrum took It to ascertain the
number of unions allied and names of the
delegstes. A member of tha union In tbe
rear of the room asked him why he desired
to ascertstn the facts at thla time, and the
emissary of Mr. Benson desisted in his at
tempt before be would explain his motives.
Appeal From Smith.
Ouy H. Smith, president of the Street
Railway Men's union, brought In an appeal
from the action of the Street Railway Men's
union In refusing to sustsin him In his
appeal to the union against his discharge
by tbe company.
After much discussion the matter was

The presidential party arrived In the city
from St. Louis at 9:10 in th morning and
was met by a reception committee at Fif
teenth street snd Askew avenue. In the
southeastern portion of the city, wto mile
from ths business center. ,
Receptioa at the Train.
The reception at the train was brief snd
Informal. Five members of the committee,
J. F. Richards and E. M. Clundennlng,
president and secretary respectively of th?
Commercial club; H. W. Evans, chairman
of the reception committee, Mayor J. A,
Reed and Colonel William R. Nelson, alone
entering the private car of th president
to greet him.
There was a great crowd on band and it
cheered from the moment th train hove
in sight until the president's carriage
moved away for a drive a tew minutes later
at the head of a long line of carriages. A
detachment of mounted police, together
with the Third regiment, Missouri National
Ouard, which had Just returned from St.
Louts, acted as an escort.
The route, starting from tbe train, took
In five miles of Ksnsaa City's boulevard
system. Passing first through tbe Paseo,
a driveway a mile In length and almost a
block wide, the president was greeted by
over 20,000 school children, whlte and black.
from private and public schools, who stood
seven deep on tbe grass plot between th
two driveways and formed a line that ex
tended for throe blocks.
When President Roosevelt appeared each
of the ohlldren waved a tiny American
flag, cheering the while, and finally as the
president passed the thousand of voices
broke forth singing "America." In the
bright sunlight the thousands of happy
faced children, backed by rowa of resi
dences decorated and covered with spec
tators, proved on of th most pleasing
scenes of tha day.
Views tbe Landscape.
After traversing Benton and Gladstone
boulevards, th party stopped and viewed
the landscape from Scsrrltt's point, which
overlooks the Missouri river, 200 feat above
that stream. Then the party waa driven
through th business section to Conventloa
hall, where the exercises of ths day wer
held. The hall was reached a few minutes
after 11 o'clock. There the two sections
were consolidated. Tbe decorations of th

numerous banners of huge slxe were sus

the ball, which has a seating capacity of
10.000, was occupied. As President Roose
velt emerged onto the stage, th , band
stsrted "The Star Spangled Banner," and
the current was turned into two great
electric flags that formed part of th ceil
ing decorations. Instsntly the crowd broke
Into tremendous cheering, while sixty
Harvard graduates with vigor gave their
college cry, ending with tbe word "Roose

Greets tha War Vcteraaa.
President Roosevelt was Introduced by
Msyor Reed. A great demonstration took
place as he rose to speak.
The president spoke a word of greeting
to his audience and then greeted especially
the men who wore the blue and those who
wore the gray.
"I do not usually ssy anything about our
being a reunited country." he said, "because
It Is not nocessary. Of course we ar a
united country, and In every audience wher
ever I see a group of men wearing th but
ton of the Orand Army of the Republte I
am certain to find a group of men ready
to cheer every allusion to tbe gallantry of
th men who wore the gray." (Applause.)
Taking the lessons taught by the soldiers
of the civil war, the president discussed
the question of good citizenship.
"In our complex relation of employ and
employer," he sail, "of one class with an
other class, of one section with another
section, we csn work out a really good re
sult only If those Interested will get to
gether and make an hbnest effort each to
understand his neighbor's viewpoint, and
then an honest effort each while working
for his own interests to avoid, worklhg to
the detriment of his neighbor.
"Wrong is wrong Just as much if It ia
done by the little man to the big man as
by the big man to the little man to the
capitalist by the wage worker or - to tbe
wage worker by the capitalist. In the long
run the wage worker and capitalist will go
down in common ruin If each does not hon
estly try to get on with Justice to the other
and work out a schema ot action which
shall b to their common advantage."
Luncheon at the Baltimore,
Shortly before noon a start' was made for
the Baltimore hotel, where, after a brief
reception in the parlors, a luncheon, per
haps the most elaborate ever given In Kan
sas City, was served. -
The decorations were strikingly beautiful
and consisted principally of the national
colors, silken' flags being draped every
where and almost conoeallng the entire
wall space. Above the president's chair was
an electric flag, which was Illuminated
when President Roosevelt entered th room.
J.. F. Richards, and Oovernor Doekery
were seated on the right of the' president
and Henry W. Evans on his left. The
guests numbered 140.
Just aa the president arose from luncheon

Missouri, with the following Inscription

Crosses the tCaonas Line.
The other members of the party and th
reception committee entered carriages and
a start for the Kansas side wss mad. A
company of th Fourth United States ' cav
airy, In command of Captain Tyre Rivera,
who was with th president in Cuba, and
a squad of mounted police, acted as escort

of th west bottoms. As th party passed
between th bluffs overlooking the Union
depot a presidential salute waa fired from
cannon placed high above the procession,
The arrival at the state Un waa announced
by a steam whlstls at a nearby packing
house. At thts'slgnal every whistle In tha

church bells everywhere were rung.
A squad ot mounted poltc from th
Kansas metropolis relieved th police es

NEW YORK. Msy 1. When th Inter-
tat Commerce commission met today Mr.
6hearn asked that further hearings b ad
journed to enabls him to prepare state
ments for the federal court regarding the

This waa agreed to.
William H. Truesdale. nresldent ot Mie
Delaware, Lackawanna V Western, wss put
on the witness stand and explslned that a
clause lu his company'a charter gave It
authority to own and operate mines.
He was questioned at length aa to the

replying, said a dividend of 7 per cent was
paid in 1801.
Despite objection by Adelbert S. Moot of
tbe Susquehanna road, the freight schedule
of the Delsware, Lackawanna Western
road was admitted. An analysis showed
the average rat per ton-mil on coal to
be 8 -10 mills and on other merchandise
Mr. Shearn then took up tha matter of
th Tempi Coal and Iron company agree
ment, but Mr. Truesdal declined to an
swer any questions as to the formation
ot the company and the share the Lacka
wanna Western took In guaranteeing Its
130,000,000 of storks and bonds.
On the advice of counsel Mr. Truesdale

lating to the mining or sale of coal.

sales agents for tbe Pennsylvania Coal com
pany, the Hillside Coal and Iron company
and the Susquehanna Cosl company, the
last witness of the day, on advice ot Mr.
Moot, declined to say what commission

was adjourned until May 28.
WORK ON STREET RAILWAY

Special rieces. '
The completion of tbe street car line
from Omaha to Florence depends on the
time in which the special work I received
from th east. The company is waiting
for a number of curvea and the Y. which
will be placed at the northern terminus
for the purpose of transferring the cars
from on track to another. The mill ad
vised the company that the special work
would be shipped April 24, but no notice of
the shipment haa been received.
The company Is working on th Walnut
Hill line south of Mason strt,' replacing
the light rails with, heavy ones, and thla
work will be continued until tbe crew la
taken back to the Florence line on the ar
rival of tb special work.- A crew Is also
at work on Broadway In Council Bluffs,
changing th rails. The rail at that plao
ar In about th worst condition of any on
the system and replacement was absolutely
It haa been difficult to get special work
for the aouthern extension of the Walnut
Hill line to South Omaha and it will be
well toward th end of summer before this
line Is completed, while th construction
of th Un to Forest Lawn cemetery may
go over until next season, although th

A PKST1FKRUIS GERM.
Barrows I'p the Healp Into Dandrafl
and Saps the Hair's Vitality.
People who complain of falling hair aa
a rule do not know that It is the result of
dandruff, which Is caused by a pestiferous
parasite burrowing up tbe scalp as It digs
down to ths sheath In which the hair Is
fed in the scalp. Before long the hair root
is shriveled up and the hair drop out. If
the work 'of the germ Is not destroyed
balr keeps thinning till baldness comes.
Tbe only way to cure dandruff Is to kill the
germ and until now there has been no
hair preparation that would do It; but to
day dmdruff is easily ersdlcated by New-
bro's Herplclde. which makes balr glossy
and soft ss silk. Sold by all druggists.

Auburn, Tlscer county. Calif., "but 1 was '
nabled to drive all traces of it from my 1
system by the use of Dr. Wllllsm' Tlnk
Pills for Pals People. Ths fever was caused
by the Insufficient srwersge system exist

such a hold on me that I was confined to
my bed for about four months. For more
than a year I suffered with alternate chllle

helped me and five boxes cured me entirely.
"I must also add that at the time I began
taking Dr. Williams' Fink Pills I suffered
from an enlargement or goitre on tbe neck
which choked me when lying on my back
and which, when I reached ' up, would
almost smother me. After taking these
pills for a short while I found to my aston
ishment that it had disappeared. That was
fiv years sgo snd since then there tas been
no signs of Its returning."
