AWAIT STRIKE CRISIS
(Continued from First rage.)
at a standstill; btiflncM men who have
no diepute with lahnr end who have al
ways sympathized with labor, both by word
and deed, have been obliged to sit Idly by
and see their Interests Inartlve, due to
the prerent strike, ami, as you are aware,
the police department Is maintained by
the entire taxpaylng community for the
protection of their rights and not by any
particular faction. With the Justice or In-
jimtice of the differences between employer
ana employe concerned In this strike the
police department as such has nothing
whatever to do, and I therefore will not
dlscum that phase of the situation. That
you have the light to cease your labors
whenever you Bee fit will not be denied,
but as strikers engaged In this strike,
or as citixens, you have no right whatever
to Injure life and property, in any way
Interfere with men taking your place or
Injure the property In their charge, and
It Is the duty of the police department to
use every means In their power to see that
you do not, to keep the streets clear and
permit traffic once more to move. Should
the police department be unable to pro
tect the business interests of this city no
doubt assistance wit! be called. We, how
ever, shall first exhaust every mems pos
sible before allowing that rail to be m&ile.
My experience with strikes has been that
the disorderly methods sometimes resorted
to by individual strikers ans not upheld
by. the rank and file, and' I feel satisfied
such Is the case In the present situation,
but In every organization there are always
a few' hotheads who cannot be controlled,
but I sincerely hope you will call your
forces together and Inform them that acts
Of violence will not be tolerated, that
they will not only Injure themselves, but
their cause and that the strike must' be
won on Its merits or not at all.
I havo issued special Instructions to all
police officers to perform their duties1 with
care and caution, but with firmness and de
termination and without fear or favor.

FEDERAL HELP IS,SUGGESTED
Business Blen'a Association
Adopts Plan to, Enlist OOTr . .
Federal court injunctions and a request
for federal troops to preserve the peace
if it be. broken by the "teaipBter and other
strikers are the chief features of the pro
gram mapped" out by the BusmesB Men'
association at a secret meeting yesterday
This morning, according to the plans,
forces of nonunion teamsters, both white
and colored, will be set to work on wagons
which' will attempt to haul merchandise
and perishable goods to and from the de
pot and the wholesale houses. The men
have., been hired, wagons and teams ar
ranged for and everything Is In readiness
to attempt to break the strike, which has
proved a barrier to street traffic for five
It is said that atf the outset the wagops
will be loaded with goods consigned to other
states. This will be done In order to set
up the claim that Interstate traffic has
been 'interfered with. If the. strikers
hinder these wagons,' application will be
made at once to Judge Munger of the
United States federal court for a restrain
ing order forbidding the teamsters or their
friends to In any way attempt to hinder
the passage of vehicles In the street.
If there is any attempt to disregard the
injunction request will -be made , of the
federal authorities to furnish United
States regular troops to prevent disturb
ance and uphold the law.
According to one source, It was decided
to keep the wagons going continuously so
that if the strikers interfered Immediately
after having the order served upon them,
there would be an infraction of the terma
of the injunction which would furnish
grounds for a demand for the regular sol
diers. Several days ago the association decided
to call upou Ooverqor Mickey for the use
of the militia in 'case serious dturbances

rlub rooms. The members simply took
possession of the rooms and ousted the
secretary, John l it, and ail other Inter
loper. During the deliberations the men
could plainly be seen through the glass
windows from, the elevator landing a
member of the Commercial club and two
newspaper men arrived. . A gentleman at
once rushed from the gathering and, un
locking the door, demanded to know what
waa wanted. He said that the association
had absolutely nothing to give to the news
papers, and he retired quickly, hastily
closing the door.
As the three Interlopers were waiting for
the elevator another member came out Into
the hall and assured the newspaper men
thit there was nothing of Interest going
on. "We are going to try to get affairs
settled as quickly and as peaceably aa pos
slble," he said, and volunteered the In
formation that a press committee will be
appointed. His actions, which spoke
louder than words, however, were eloquent
of his desire to have the visitor quit the
scene. Evidently there was fear that an
attempt would be made to record the names
of those present.

the union scale and it was stated at the
waiters' headquarter yesterday that a
number of other contracts have been
made out on- application of pro

bakers have secured, addillonal concessions
from their employer and now over half
their men are back at work. Their total
number is seventy, besides the twenty or

teamsters, who control the situation, have
secured no further concessions, and failed
to reach terms of settlement after 4 con

sayl: "Two of the master plumbers have
already signed the 'scale and twenty-seven
refuse to sign. They base their refusal to
sign on the ground that they are now pay

hours' work. In reply we wish to state
that the aforesaid laborers never go down
Into the ground lower than five feet, while
we have to go down from five to thirty
feet, and have no foremen to overaee the
work, and we have consequently to lake
all the responsibility on our own shoulders.
In many Instances- the master plumbers
get paid for Journeymen plumbers' wages,
while the drain layers do the work and get
only laborers' pay. In Free ft Wlcken

plumbers have walked out In sympathy
with the drain layers and refuse to work

United States Department of Agriculture,
climate and crop aervfee of the weather
bureau. Bulletin of the Nebraaka section for
the week ending May 4, 1903:
The past week haa been cold, with an
excesa of precipitation. The dally mean
temperature has averaged 10 degrees below
normal In western counties, and 13 degrees
below In eastern; heavy frosts occurred In
all parts of the state on the 20th or 30th.
The lowest temperature generally occurred
on the 29th, and In the eastern counties
ranged from 19 to 28 degrees, while in the
northweetern counties the temperature a.
as low as 10 degrees.
The low temperature of the past, week
completely reversed the fruit prospecta.
The general opinion a few days after the
low temperature was that the plums, arrl
cots, early cherries, early apples and
peaches would be nearly. If not quite, a
failure. The late cherries and late apple
were not so severely injured, as the trees
were not fully In bloom, and In the south
eastern counties It is variously estimated
that from 25 per cent to somewhat
more than 50 per cent of . a
crop of the late varieties may yet be
obtained. Strawberries were only slightly
damaged; blackberries and grapes appear
to have been less seriously damaged. It Is,
however, too early to estimate the full In
Jury to fruit.
An unusually severe storm passed over
the state on the 28th and 29th. Rain com
menced late In the afternoon of the 28th
generally and turned to sleet and snow In
the night or on the 29th. Snow fell In
all parts of the state and generally was
sufficient to cover the ground to a depth
of two or more inches. The total amount
of water falling during the storm exceeded
an inch in most southern and eastern coun
ties and In some places exceeded .three
The wet weather retarded all farm work,
but the moisture was needed by grass and
small grain. Wheat was not damaged by
the storm or cold weather, but has been
greatly improved by the moisture. Oats
have been dsmaged slightly In many lo
calities by the low temperatures, but prob
ably with seasonable weather will entirely
recover. Early potatoes were frozen In
some places. No progress was made with
corn planting during the week, and fears
are now entertained that much of the lit
tle now planted will have to 'be replanted.

Fort Leavenworth Penitentiary.
WASHINGTON, May 6. There were two
Important moves. In the poatoffice Investi
gation today- first the dispatch f a letter
calling for tho evidence In the possession
of the former cashier of the Washington
flty postnfflce to substantiate his chsrger
agalDst the administration of the depart
ment aeveral yeara ago, and, accond, tht
announcement that the present Investiga
tion was agreed upon early Inst winter.
Postmaster General Tayoe in his letter to
Mr. Tulloch said, he would bo pleased tc
Tecelve any statements, accounts, docu
ments. or other papers confirmatory of the
allegations made,. Mr. Payne subsequently
said that he would personally go over these
papera and decide whether the roattei
should be 'referred to Mr. Br.lstow for In
clusion In his general investigation of the
department. Kopjles have heen received
from. Mr. Bristow, Postmaster Mcrrltt and
presumably, former Postmaster General
Smith, but Mr.. Payne said all the replies
called, for had not yet been euhmltted.
Former Representative Loud of Califor
nia, for many years Chairman of the house
committee on . postofflces and post roads,
was fn conference. with the postmaster gen
eral today concerning the Investigation. The
postmsster general later announced that
the present investigation was contemplated
as long ago as last December and that the
work along the lines now being pursued by
Mr. .Bristow . was then decided on. Mr.
Payne said this was provided for In an Item
In the last appropriation act.
Final permission reached the Italian,
British and German ambassadors tonight
to sign the protocol 'etibmlttlng the ques
tlon of preferential treatment to The Hague
As Boon as they can agree among them
selves as to whether The Hague convention
shall be signed separately or Jointly the
signatures will be affixed.
I'arrloned by the President.
The president has pardoned Martin Gull-ford,-who
In November, 1902, pleaded guilty
to robbing a postofflce ,ln Indiana, and who
was sentenced to eighteen months' lm
prlsonment In tha penitentiary at Fort
ieavenwortn, , Kan. The pardon was
granted . upon . the representation of the
prison physicians that he was In the last
stages of consumption-
Old Alaskan Interpretation Favored.
The strongest point In the American case
In the Alaskan boundary dispute, which was
recently delivered to the British ambassa
dor, is the communication of the Russisn
ambassador to the British king, when he
delivered the exchange of ratification of
the Russo-Anglo treaty In 1825. It Is a
part of a record of the American case that
the ambassador was Instructed by the Rus
sian government to inform the king that
the interpretation which the Russians
placed upon the treaty was that the clause
relating to ten marine leagues meant that
the distance should not be less than ten
marine leagues from the sea. The fact
there was no contention over the boundary
and that this Interpretation of Russia waa
communicated to the British government Is
believed by the American counsel to make
a strong legal point In favor of the Amer
ican Malm. ?:'
