Borne of the wholesale dealers have been
quoted as saying that unless a settlement
was brought about at once they would have
no further use (or their freight handlers
and would have to turn them off. On the
other hand the freight handlers have been
seriously considering the proposition to
strike. Their course is therefore decidedly
uncertain. There are about 1,000 freight
handlers In the city, about half of whom
are In the union. There are more ot course
at South Omaha and Council Bluffs where
the teamstera are liable to strike also.
Officers of tbs Omaha union were at these
two places yesterday. Of course the pack
ing bouse teamstera are already out.
At all events it Is believed some effort
will be made by or through the wholesalers
and Jobbers to effect a settlement of mat
ters Monday or Tuesday. With the team
sters' strike settled It Is thought tbs hard
est part of the battle would be over.
The carpenters yesterday held another
meeting. They assert theirs Is not a strike
but a lockout. Guatav Hansen, chairman

racking; Hoase Laborers Flans.
About 800 members of the South Omaha
Packing Trades council, an organisation of
unskilled labor, met at the armory of the
cavalry troop last night and discussed
wages. It was decided to send a communi
cation to the packing house managers on
Monday, asking for an increase in pay
from 17 H cents to 20 cents an hour. Noth
ing was said of striking. ,
The press committee of the Restaurant
and Hotel Mens' association authorised this
statement yesterday morning:
"We will never sign the union scale. Ws
do net so much object to any single de
mand, but cannot hand over to the union
the right or dictating to us whom we shall
and shall not employ. We will resist the
union Indefinitely before we will sign the
scale. The difficulty is that the union can
not always supply adequate help from Its
own ranks and will at such times not per
mit us to go outside of the union to vet
men, no matter how competent they may
be. The restaurants that are now closed
will not remain closed long. While we
have no concerted plan ready to disclose
the public may rest assured that our doors
will be open within a few days. We do not
anticipate re-opening, however, until after
election. Some ot the restaurant owners
have expressed a fear at attempting to do
business with nonunion men until munic
ipal affairs and the Initial excitement of the
strike has quieted down. Wt do not ex
pect the strike to last long."
Vntos Ready to Arbitrate.
C. B. Hart, business agent and chairman
of the waiters' press committee, has sub

"We are ready to arbitrate our differ
ences with our employers on any fair and
equitable basis, but we cannot afford to
return to work pending the result ot arbl
tratlon or until matters are thoroughly ad-
Mr. Hart further says that the union has
at all times been able to supply the fuU
demand for union men and would be will

allow their employers to hire any white

Statement of Coal Dealers.
The conference committee of the eoal
dealers, composed of George p. Cronk,
George Peterson, George G. Squires. T. C.
Havens, Randall K. Brown, John Doe, A.
B. Cook, E, A. Blum, C. P. Southard, J. A
Sunderland. H. T. Lemist and C. W. Hull.
has given out the following statement:
OMAHA, May I To Coal Consumers In
the City of Omaha; Yesterday morning
without previous notice, the coal teamsters
of the city failed to report for work, and
as a consequence dealers are unable to
Immediately deliver coal to consumers. In
order that the public may be advised of the
true facts In the case we desire to make
the following statement:
On Marh 1 the team drivers' union
adopted a tiew scale of wafers, to be In
effect on and after May I, and presented
same to the coal dealers for their consid
eration. On year ago the coal dealers,
voluntarily, In conference with a commit
tee of the teamsters' union, granted an ad
vance In the wages of coal haulers, amount
ing to about 20 per cent, and under the
schedule In effect teamstera who have
worked full hours and have been Indus
trious have earned as high as f per day,
and have averaged much In excess of the
union wages, which were $3.75 per day for
team and driver.
Since the proposed scale for next year
made a further advance of from 20 to 20
per cent above the scale paid during the
year Just passed, the coal dealers unani
mously agreed that the demands made were
exorbitant, unreasonable and more than we
were Justified In charging the public for
the service rendered. In addition to the
demands made for higher wages, numerous
conditions were specified for the conduct
of the coal business that would make It
Impossible to carry on the business with
out much annoyance to consumers, and It
was unanimously agreed that we could not
submit to these arbitrary demands.
Our reply, in writing, to the team drivers
was conveyed to their union, and resulted
In two conferences between committees of
the team drivers and the coal dealers. At
these conferences the teamsters were un
willing to recede from the most of the
demands originally made, and in some In
stances made still further demands that
Increased the charges for delivering coal.
The dealers again rejected the schedule,
and Incorporated In their reply certain
conditions which they would require in
dealing with the men during the coming
year, of which the principal ones were
these: That we would not discriminate
against union men, but If nonunion men
were employed that they must not be
harassed or molested by union men; that
there should be no sympathetic strike or
refusal to deliver our goods wherever we
might require; that employers and employes
should submit to arbitration nil questions In
dispute that were not settled by such
agreement as might be entered Into at this
time. No reply was received from our
communication until the strike yesterday
morning, which we assume Is their answer.
The coal yards of the city are open and
the supplies of coal therein are available
to any consumers who can deliver their own
coal, and the dealers will try to be in a
position at as early a date as possible to
STIRS UP THE CHURCH

the church filled with fashionable people.
Rev. Dr. James Goodwin of Christ Episcopal
church refused to perforin the ceremony
and dismissed the guests because. In read
ing the marriage license, he found the
bridegroom had been divorced ten years
The wedding was to have been that of
A. Lincoln Chase, manager' of a department
store here, aDd Miss Gladys Geer, daughter
ot one of the oldest residents of Hartford;
Mr. Chase and Miss Geer had started
down the center aisle, when, suddenly at
the rector'a call, the party stopped wtthin
a few feet of the chancel rail. After a
hurried consultation Mr. Chase and Miss
Geer, much embarrassed, turned and hur
ried out of the church.
Advancing to the altar. Dr. Goodwin said:
"Friends, the wedding has been post
poned." This was all the explanation he
made. Later, Dr. Goodwin said:
The laws of the Episcopal church forbid
me to marry a divorced person. I did not
know the circumstances until I read the
license while I wes in the church ready to
perform the ceremonv. I am very sorry to
have caused the party anv embarrassment,
but I could not act otherwise.
Miss Geer and Mr. Chase, after leaving
the church, were driven to the home of
Rev. H. H. Kelsey and were married.

There Is alwava a mean between those

The question of adjusting and harmonizing
the relations of capital and labor Is the

possible liberty of action and the protec

possessed of a ballot is responsible and has

Bob Houghton Breaks In.
At this Instant Bob Houghton again broke
Into the proceedings by denouncing the
speaker and saying . that the meeting
should not listen to anything reflecting
upon the Fire and Police commission. He
would not respond to the request of the
chairman for order and the chairman was
finally compelled to again call upon the
police to restore order. An officer took
Houghton by the arm, but before he could
do anything with the disturber of the
poaee W. J. Broatch, coming down the
aisle, commended the officer to let Hough
ton alone and not In any way assist the
chairman In preserving order. When this
became known a motion to adjourn was put
and carried and about halt ot the people
left the hall.
While the union men were leaving the
socialists pushed to tho front and E. J.
Morgan was raised to the stage. The so
cialists formed around the stage In the
front chairs, and while the executive com
mittee of the original meeting was won
dering what should be done, Mr. Morgan
was declared chairman of the socialist
meeting, which was organized upon the
ruins of the union labor meeting. From
that time there was no pretense of making
the meeting one of trades unionists, or of
laboring men. The chairman of the meet
ing Is not a member of any union, and with
but two exceptions no speaker was In any
way connected with a labor organization.
It must be said that Chairman Morgan at
tempted to be fair, and there would have
been no further disturbance had H not been
for a number of hoodlums headed by Vic
Walker, E. C. Hodder. and John A. Scott,
who accompanied E. A. Benson from a
meeting at Oermania hall later In the
Gets Bark at Weather.
The first speaker after the chairman, who
made a rather extended address, was F.
E. Hart, a Benson boomer, who did not
dare at that stage of the meeting to men
tion Benson' name. He was followed by
E. E. Btreeter, who toldwhy he was for
Benson. Then there were calls for some
one to present the claims of Mayor Moore.
The union men In the hall took no notice
of the call, but finally Andrew Rosewater
was signaled out arid called upon.. City
Engineer Rosewater had Just started to
talk when the Benson boomers began to
Interrupt. He referred to the. figures pre
sented by Comptroller Westberg, as evi
dence ot a padded payroll, and said that If
the facts were as presented by Mr. W'!
berg the comptroller should be in the peni
tentiary for he had approved each payroll
and further than that had signed the order
for payment. He said that while he had
been at the head of the Board of Public
Works no man bad been expected ts vote
to hold his Job, so far as he was concerned
and that he had told foremen of street
gangs who seme1 to expect Instructions
that while th city bought the service of
the men the officers of the city did not pur
chase their suffrage nor their manhood.
He then referred to the attempt to secure
a franchise for a power evstem in the city,
which would have given electrical power at
one-half the price now charged and at
tributed the defeat of the ordinance to the
action of public corporations of the cltyr
and referred to the part taken by C. C.
Wright, In defeating the proposition. In
response to his question:
"Do you want such a man as city at
torney?" There was a loud choru of "No 1"
whllo not one affirmative voice wa heard.
He closed by saying: "These corpora
tions are practically all tn one today. Find
out where they are and It is a safe proposi
tion to take the other place. They are
backing Howell, and they are backing Ben
eon, and the only way In which the peo
ple can secure a victory over them 1
through the election of Frank E. Moores,"
which statement -was received with re
Then Barnard McCsffery spoke from a
socialist standpoint, while E. C. Hodder and
JoLn A. Scott continually Interrupted the
speaker with howls for E. E. Thomas. Mr.
Thomas finally got the stage and Introduced
E. A. Benson, who bowed pleasantly. J.
H. Mcintosh spoke for ten minutes for
Benson, O. M. Hitchcock spoke for Howell.
Chairman Morgan spoke for fifteen minutes
from the socialist standpoint, and while the
Benson hoodlums In the rear were making
night hideous, J. R. Southard, a Benson
boomer, moved that the mass convention
endorse the candidacy of W. H. Moore, the
socialist candidate, for mayor. This wa
carried by the combined vote of the so
cialist and the men who formed in the
hall under the leadership of Vic Walker, In
the Interests of Erastu A. Benson.
By a vote of the meeting earlier In the
evening Andrew Rosewater, whose remark
had not been completed at the expiration
of his time, had been granted permission
to speak ten minute after the last socialist
orator. For halt an hour. In the face of
Jeers from the Benson hoodlums. Mr. Rose-
water tried to complete his talk, but the
meeting was finally adjourned, he having
been howled Into silence by a dozen tilgb
school boys, who loaned their shrill treble
to the deeper tone of John A. 8cott, J. B
Southard, Vie Walker and other Zenson
boomers. It was after midnight when the
farce was at an end.
Edgar Howard on Howell.
The champion of Ed Howell have called
upon Edgar Howard for a testimonial to
square that corporation candidate with the
antl-monopely element of the democratic
party, t'nder this pressure Edgar Howard
has been Induced to say in his paper, the
Columbus Telegram, thst "Howell Is super
ior in everr sense to the nominee of the
opposing republican factions, and has ai
ways been "loysl to democratic Interests.1
While this Is not very strong, it Is still
paraded by ths Howell orgsn as an appeal
to democrats to stsna togntner.
What Edgar Howard really thtak of Ed
Howell can, however, beat be gathered
from what h ha written and printed
about him on previous occasions, when no
psrty whip was being cracked over his
head. Howard was In close attendance
upon the legtslsture In which Howell
served and observed the work of the cor
poration lobby in and outside of the senate
chamber. In the raplllon Time of March
12, 1!7. Edgar Howard said:
"Every school boy In Nebraska know
that every fuslonlst now occupying a seat
In the Nebraska legislature was chosen
with the Implied and express understand
ing that he would favor laws to regulate
the public corporation in the date. A
great majority of the fusion senator havf
been faithful to the pledge made by and
for them In the campaign. Eight ot them,
perjuring themselves In the eye ot God
and man, have gone over to the enemy.
We do not know that they were bought.
We do know that they have ruthlessly be
trayed the people who elected them. The
eight traitors who fell at the feet of Bill
Paxton and fought the bill to regulat the
stock yards octopus are:
RANSOM of Douglas.
HOWELL Of Douglas,
And Five Other Names.
Thece men deserve to be advertised to
the world a traitors. It I not pleasant for
us to denounce men of our own political
faith, but duty demands It."
After the session wa over and after
Howell had been defeated for mayor by
Frank Moores, In April of the same year,
commenting upon the reault Edgar Howard
among other things declared:
"We know that the defeated democratic
nominee for mayor wa not a fair repre
sentative of the silver forces. Had
the free silver forces nominated a clean
man like Frank Burkley for mayor be
would have won out with two thousand
majority to his credit and would have In
spired the blmetalllBts with enthusiasm and
confidence sufficient to have carried the en
tire city ticket with him. The blmetalllst
of the state had a right to expect better
thing from their brethren In the metro
polis. Let the result teach Omaha bl
metalllst once for all that the masses do
not trust a corporation toot, no matter how
long and earnestly he preaches free silver."
If the decent democrat of Omaha are to
heed the advice of Edgar Howard they will
prefer to heed that given by him at a tima
free from the - beat of a political cam
paign rather than that extorted from him
under specious argument of party ex
pediency. YANGER 0UTB0XES BROAD
Pnt Vnder Bonds to Keep Peace
Fighters Go Twenty Past
LOUISVILLE, May 2, AftT having been
placed under arrest at the Instance of the
Citizens' league Benny Yanger and Kid
Broad went twenty fast rounds at the
Southern Athletic club tonight, Yanger get
ting the decision. This afternoon the prin
cipals and officials ol the light were ar
rested and taken before Judge Larulh, wh
held that the men could not be put In Jail
unless the contest should develop Into it
prize fight, but he imported a bond of $1,0)0
to keep the peace In each case.
The fight tonight went a ' swift pace.
Twice during the first ten rounds the men
seemed to tire, but recuperated quickly and
went at it again hammer and tongs. Broad
proved a glutton tor punishment. Vanger
clearly outpointed him. Yanger drew first
blood In the third round with a hard
smash to the nose. Broad kept on playing
for the body and his blows seemed to shako
y anger considerably.
The kid forced the fighting, apparently
playing for a quick flnltth. Hroad landed
three stinging righta on Yanger's jaw In
quick succession at the opening of the
bixth. Yanger drove a pair of rights to th!
stomach and then repeated the aose w.th a
vigor which sent Broad Into a clinch to
bang on heavily.
Broad began slowing down In the eighth
under a broadside of mercllsas body blows.
It was anybody's light up to the seven
teenth round, although Yanger appeared
the fresher. From this to the end both
tried for a knockout, the twentieth ending
with a tierce mlxup.
The decision of Referee Hurst, awarding
the fight to Yanger, was approved by the
crowd. Broad waa very wobbly at the
