Mayor Moorrs In explaining why he can
celled the closing order, said: "It is done
Jn view of the fact that a practical truce
has been declared between the Business
Men's association and the labor unions:
that the city Is In a state of quiet and good
order and that tho laboring men have
proven their self-control by preserving the
liea re for three days.
Before revoking the order I took great
pains to Investigate the conditions and I
was assured by both the saloon men and
the officers of fourteen labor unions that
both would exercise the greatest restraint
and effort to prevent turmoil and distur
bances of all kinds.
"The -labor leaders have placed them
selves under an obligation to Veep thing
quiet and to let the strike remain In status
quo at least until the arbitration meeting
Monday night. This mean that the ten
sion has been relieved and that the crisis
either Is passed or postponed until next
"Under these circumstances and with
these promlpes I have decided to try the
strikers and see if they can live up to their
word to abstain from acts of vlolenc and
breaches of tho peace under, the ordinary
conditions that exist In Omaha."
Statement for Liquor Dealers.
A. G. Stephana, chairman of tho commit

the following statement for that organi

"We promised the mayor that we would

notice whenever he considered that, the
emergency to warrant luch action had
arisen. We further promised the mayor
and the chief of police that when the emer
gency arises we will not only close our
places, but we will assist them In suppress
ing the sale of liquor by providing them
with Informal Ion as to any place that may
violate the order, whether It be saloon,
drug store or other place. Our association
is in a position to discipline any member
who falls to keep Its obligations, even to
the extent of expelling him. Our members
are law-abiding citizens and I don't thing
any of them would violate an order from !
the authorities, but we propose to see to
It that people who are not members of our
organisation alBo respect the official or
ders. Our. committee reported to the as
sociation or the results of our conference
with the mayor and the association voted
unanimously to ratify the pledges made to
Expressmen Mast Have Licenses..
License Inspector Scott yesterday after
fiocn Issued a goneral notice that all per
sons engaged In the express, transfer and
drayage business must procure licenses by
Saturday night or they will be arrested
and the penalty for the violation of the or
, The annual license for expressmen Is $1
a year and the total number Issued In ItOl
was about 300. This year, although the
permit are required to be taken out Jan
uary 1, only about 200 have compiled with
the regulations. This number Includes the
large tranifer companies, now tied up by
the teamsters' strike.
However the Immediate cause for the
notice Is the fact that since the tleup of
the big transfer llnea many Individual
with wagons and teams have been filling
the emergency and reaping a considerable
business despite the vigilant efforta exer
cised by the teamsters' pickets.
Now that the restraining Injunction viti
ates the plans of the union to keep non
union drivers from doing business the In
tlnerant "Junkers" and others drawn tem
porarily Into the transportation business
have a free rein. They have rendered them
selves subject to the license regulations,
however, and must either procure the au
thorised permit or quit doing business.

Shirt Waists in dainty lawns at $1.00 up
from that of Thursday. The teamsters are
at a standstill, having effected practically
a complete tie-up of their affaire, and the
freight handlers are gradually calling out
more of their men. President Nnst says
the men will be called out as fast as they
are required to handle goods hauled by
nonunion drivers. Those twenty-five who
truck at the Midland Glass & Paint com
pany yesterday morning did so because of
this reason. The freight handlers at Auau.M
ft Kelly's struck yesterday. The teamsters
there went out the day before.
The coal dealers are still making little
effort to resume business, though In some
cases coal Is being sent out. Some of the
coal dealers are meeting with difficulty In
getttlng drivers, while others are getting
more drivers than they can use. Most
of them feel that It would be unsafe to send
out drivers and are holding off for that
"We are not sending out any teams at
all," said J. A. Sunderland, "because we
uon i want to risa our Old men or new
ones to the assault!' that might be made
probably not while the drivers were on
the wagons, but after they had left their
work. It Is but natural that we should feel
this fear for our men, because we have
seen by former strikes of this kind that
It Is not the safest thing In the world to
"Our customers may be suffering for
coal, but they certainly are very generous
about It. They have assured us that they
will get alonj some how and for us to go
ahead and fight out this case as best we
can. showing that their sympathy la with
us. We are convinced that the employers
have public sympathy In this controversy."
Freight Congestion Serious.
But few more transfer wagons are at
work than were Thursday', , but It Is ex
pected that by a few more days many will
be on the streets, ' as the transfer men
have launched an effort to Import non
union drivers, as was stated In The Bee
yesterday morning. Some of the wholesale
houses have co-operated with the transfer
men to the extent of furnishing drivers
for them. The congestion of freight la
serious and every effort will be made to
relieve It But while this Is being done
the other obstacle presented in the In
action of the freight handlers on being
required to work with nonunion teamsters
No violence of any kind has come to light
The sheriff has sworn in sixty deputies
to start with and they went out yesterday
morning, each squad being under the di
rection of an experienced member of the
police force. Chief Donahue and Sheriff
Power Are working-hand In hand. They,
with their corporal forcoa. and the gov
ernor and mayor, with their moral suasion,
expect to fully conquer the situation, es
pecially since the strikers contend that
they will offer no overt resistance and af
ford chance for any call to arms or ar
rests. The strikers say they are ready to
contribute every possible effort to an
amicable settlement, through arbitration
or any other medium that may be decided
on. The Idea Of federal or state troops
seems to have been completely lost.
The waiters are unchanged In their sit
uation, except that they are extending
their picket lines to one more restaurant
that opened Friday with a small force
of nonunion waiters. It is the Rookaway
at 1116 Douglas street operated by John
O. Dennis. '

Australian Railroad Tied t p.
MELBOURNE, Victoria, May 8. All the
railroads of Victoria which are slate-owned
are tide up because of a curious dispute
between the government and the railroad
employes regarding the right of the latter
to affiliate . themselves with he Victoria
trades hall, the headquarters of trades
unionism In this colony. The employes of
me railroads are practically civil servants
and the government claims that In case of
a strike in other trades affiliated with the
trades hall the railroad men would be
obliged to strike In sympathy and there
fore the government has notified the rail
road men that unless they withdraw from
tne trades hall before May 11 they will be
dismissed. The Engineers' association re
plied that unless the government with
drew its notification before 6 o'clock this
evening they would strike at midnight and
leave their locomotive! wherever they hap
pen to be.
The ultimatum failed of effect and the
men carried out their program to the let
ter. The government has guaranteed
double wages for two months to nonstrlk
ers and has notified the men that they will
lose their pensions If they strike. About
11,000 railroad men are involved In the dis
pute. Picketing- still Illegal.
LONDON, May 8. -The House of Com
mons today by 246 to 226 rejected th trades
disputes bill. Intended to legalize peaceful
picketing and alter the law affecting the
liability of trades unions' funds. Premier
Balfour and other ministers opposed the
bill and promised that a royal commission
would be appointed to inquire Into the
whole proposition of .trades unionism as
affected by decisions In the recent Taff
Vale and similar cases.

lu Pomce patrons., particularly on rural
routes, and the appointment of carriers.
There also has been a conflict between
Mr. Machen and Mr. Wynne ever since
the latter assumed office. Mr
chargta Mr. Machen with Insubordination.
The strained relations between the head of
the free delivery service and other nfHrioi.
resulted In an embarrassing state of affaln
..u .r several months correspondence be
tween the general superintendent of the
free delivery service and hi Im.Hi.t-
superior, the first assistant postmaster gen
eral has been conducted on the part of
'"rough one of his subordinates.
Mr. Brlstow all along has been of the
opinion that the best Interests of the ser
vice would bo subserved by the relief. of
Mr. Machen and has pointed out to the
postmaster general that that action was
Imperatively necessary, to the successful
conduct of the Investigation.
One of the plans under consideration In
connection with the reorganization of the
uepanment Is to keep the rural free de
Ivery service permanently under the Jur
isdiction of the fourth assistant postmsster
general, leaving the regular free delivery
service In Its forrner Jurisdiction, that of
the firet assistant postmaster general.
Postmaster General' Payne explains that
any rearrangement of duties will hinge
largely upon .the result of the investiga
tion. Mr. Fosnes is one of the best known
Inspectors fn the service.' He Is chief as

Charlea O. Sprenger of the Ranch News,
Denver, v.ho has Just completed a trip
through northwestern Nebraska and east

His observations In Cheyenne, Kimball and

port of heavy stock losses during the last
winter, and It has developed that the own
era are taking their losses quite philo
sophically. There Is not one that does not
acknowledge short-sightedness In prepara

the possibilities of raising stock feed, while
In the minority, came through the winter
in first-class shape without losses and are
now being praised by their less fortunate
fellowi for having tested the possibilities
of the soil In raising feed for their stock.
The result is, says Mr. Sprenger, that
this spring a greater acreage Is being
plowed. Kaffir corn, millet, sugar beet and
alfalfa seed are being purchased In large
quantltlee and liberally sown. The sugar
