aatd, was a great surprise to him and his
associates, who had been led to believe
that they would be given the franchise pro

RECRUITS FOR THE UNIONS

SITUATION IS OTHERWISE UNCHANGED
Contractor IVlekhaaa Aaisaarn lliat

There waa practically no change In the
strike situation In Council Bluffs yesterday,
except that both the mason tenders and
the teamstera claimed a number of new
recruits to the ranks of the strikers.
Bueinesa Agent Raabe of the Trades and
Labor easembly eatlmated last evening
about ISO men were out on strike. Thla es
tlmate Includes the entire membership of
the Mason Tenders' union and about aev-enty-flve
members of the Teamsters' union.
While the bricklayers and masona are
not out on etrike. It was stated yesterday
that they had practically decided not to
work with scab nelperg. Work was en
tirely suspended on the Oreat Western
freight house, but contractor Wlckham had
a number of nonunion men working on the
concrete foundations of the Oreat Western
roundhouse yesterday. Work on the Fuller
Johnson A Bhugart company'a warehouse on
South Main street, ao far as bricklayers
was concerned, was also at a standstill yea
terday. The same was true of the McAtee
building on Pearl street. A prominent
member of the Bricklayers' union stated
last evening that In his opinion there would
be little or no brick laid In Council Bluffs
for two or three weeks.
Both the Mason Tenders' and Teamsters'
unions held meetings yesterday afternoon
in Labor hall and both decided to stand
firm In their demand for the Increased
scale of wages. President Stack of the
Mason Tenders' union reported that thirty
men had Joined the union since the Inaugu
ration of the strike and that conditions
looked favorable for the ultimate victory
of the strikera.
The Teamsters' union appointed a com
mittee to wait on the men still working
and try to Induce them to quit until the
employers signed the new scale. An ex
ecutive board waa also appointed to take
charge of the strike and confer with the
bosses. President A. L. Smith of the
Teamsters' union stated that seventy-five
members of the union who hsd been em
played hauling brick, dirt and other build
ing material, were now out on strike.
The city had been paying 12.60 a day for
teams and the union yesterday sent a com
munication to the city council asking that
the city agree to pay 35 cents an hour,
or $3.60 a day of ten hours. Unless the
mayor calls a speclsl meeting to take ac
tion on the matter, It cannot come before
the council for two weeks, as no meeting
will be held until May IS.
Several ot the contractors stated yester
day that they would sign the new wage
scale It Wlckham would. Mr. Wlckham,
when asked It thla waa so, stated that the
contractors were attempting to shoulder
the whole thing onto him and their- state
ment that they would sign If ha would,
he regarded merely aa a bluff. Mr. Wlck
ham said as far aa ha was concerned hla
work was In such shape that the strike
would not affect him any. He said further
that the work of laying brick at the Im
plement warehouse on Main street would be
resumed today, strike or no strike.

Raw Bids for Street ivreeplnar.
In advertising anew for bids for the street
cleaning the city council, at the suggestion
of Chairman McDonald ot the atreets and
alleys committee, has decided to cut out
Main street below Seventh avenue and
Broadway west of Eighth street. The por
tions of these thoroughfares thus cut out ot
the contract are subject to being covered
with deep mod In case of heavy rains. Main
street, below Seventh avenue, frequently
becomes covered with mud washed from the
bill streets and the failure ot the sewerr
to carry off the flood water. Broadway, west
of Eight street. Is flooded every time In
dian creek overflows Its banks. With thesr
portion of Msin street and Broadway
eliminated from the contract. It Is believed
bids will be made for the cleaning of the
rest of the paved streets.
Under the first advertisement the city
was to furnish dumping ground and this,
nome of the prospective bidders, claimed
was too Indefinite. It left them uncertain
aa to whether they would be required to
haul the refuae one block or twenty. Un
der the new specifications the contractors
will be perfnltted to provide their own
dumping grounds. They will be permitted
to fill vacant lots with the street scrapings
provided they cover It with fresh earth.

Storage Houses la Council
The erection ot a large cold storage house
In this city to be used jointly by the South
Omaha packing housea la one of the Impor
tant matters to be discussed at the meeting
ot the directors ot the Commercial club
this evening. Commissioner Loomls will
lay before the board correspondence with
the packing firms which Indicates that the
latter think favorably of the plan to main
tain a cold storage bouse In this city from
which the trade can be supplied.
Last Monday the packing bouses discon
tinued the delivery by wagon ot meat to
thla city and Inaugurated a system of sup
plying the trade from refrigerator cars.
This, It wss claimed by the packers, would
preserve the freah meats In much better
condition than when delivered by wagon,
especially In the hot weather. Deliveries
by refrigerator cars are made three times
a week, the butchers calling at the cart
for tbelr supplies. Some of the butchers
object to being obliged to haul their sup
plies from the ear Instead of hsvlng the
delivery made at their door aa heretofore,
but even If the packers maintained a cold
storage house In the city, they would be
still compelled to call for their supplies
aa it la not likely the South Omaha firms
will maintain a wagon service In the city.
The delivery by refrigerator csrs, the
packers write Commlesioaer Loomls. will
enable them to make a alight reduction In
I be price of meat aold to the trade In thla
city aa a result of discontinuing the wagon
delivery service. The correspondence Indi
cates, however, that the plan of shipping
here in refrlaerator ear la hut a limnnriPY
We are prepared to do this work to per- i pealent ,nd Commissioner Loomls Is of
fscttoa, in connection with our dyeing bust- jthe opinion that the packera will ultimately
I consent to establish either aeoarate depots
or maintain a joint cold storage house from
which the local trade may be supplied.
One of the South Omaha firms has written
1 Mr. Loomls that It Intenda to give Council
Bluffs the same facilities enjoyed by Omshs.
Inssmuch ss this company maintains a cold
storage house In Omsha. this statement Is
taken to Imply that this firm at least con
templates the maintenance ot a cold storage
house In this city. Another firm In Its let
ter to Mr. Loomls says that the delivery
by refrigerator car Is but ths Initiatory
step toward the erection cf a cold storage
bouse In Council Bluffs. .

willing to assist the association In every
