KANSAS CITT, May tt The (.000
employers of labor In Kansas City have
banded together to fight those labor unions
which use the boycott to gain their enda,'
and have organized "The Employers' as
sociation." The association today decided to refuse
to deliver goods to places where nonunion
men or nonunion made goods are discrim
inated against. This action followed the
refusal of a brewing company, employing
union men, to deliver beer to a hotel bar
until the union was recognized. A member
of the association retaliated by refusing
to deliver ice to the saloons handling this
particular company's beer, with a result
that the delivery of beer to the offending
hotel was immediately resumed.
Several persistent boycotts have been
Isld against restaurants and various
branches of trade In Kansas City within
tne past year, because of the refusal of
the employers to recognise unions.

CAMBRIl f'Vtss., May l.-Prof. Ira
N. Hlllls of V -rvard athletic com
mittee said todaj O Marvard had never
understood that tfu Ush universities
were anxious for the '"tin universi
ties to meet them In track 'c contests.
"We understand," he salo, itt Oxford
and Cambridge were willing i send us a
challenge If we denlred. We have never ex
pressed a desire for an International meet
this year and have not received an out and
out challenge. It seems that a letter was
received by some one In New York con
veying the Idea. As I hsve said, if Har
vard and Yale were willing, then the Eng
lish universities would extend the chal
lenge. We got the impression that they
wore not particularly anxious for the meet.
We feel also that the plan for an Inter
national meet, which was worked up wholly
on this side of the Atlantic, was proposed
too late. We look upon these games merely
from the point of view as to whether they
promote athletics and when an oppor
tunity to hold athletic games comes so late
in the term we usually reject It."
NEW HAVEN, Conn., May 13.-The Yale
News today says that when the challenge
for an International track meet was re

matter was placed In the hands of the
Yale track management snd the Harvard
athletic committee, and everything seemed
to point to the acceptance of the chal

sending a team abroad, and from all that
could be learned, there seemed little doubt
that Harvard would Join Yale. Word was,
however, received from the Harvard ath

sion. The present membership is 6,161 and
232 posts in good standing. The total loss

bers. The report pays a brilliant tribute to the

The eighteen Omaha laundries that were
closed as a result of the differences be
tween tha laundry owners and employe!
will not reopen this morning, a was
planned, or at least given out by the pro
prietor. The date for resumption of busi
ness Is now set for Monday,
The laundry workers, like ths striking
waiters, have 'come Into possession of
financial resources that enable them to
withstand a longer siege of Idleness in
their attempt to cope with the proprietors.
It was thought when the laundry worker
went out, many of them being on very
mall wages, that within a few days they
would be forced to return to work. But
concerted action ha been takon by other
union of the city, a fund collected and -maintained
by contingent fee for the
benefit of the laundry workers. Kach
striker will receive a fair benefit, In every
case calculated to meet the actual needs.
This, and probably this alone in some,
though not all cases, enables a continua
tion of the strike.
As for the waiters, whose resources were
also thought to be so meagre that they
would soon have to give up In despair,
they yesterday received .advices from their
national organization that an allotment of
$10,000 had been made to them and that
additional help would be given when neces
sary. The national order ha levied a tax
on' all local throughout the country ta
support the striking waiters In Omaha:
The men and women affected by this move
ment feel encouraged to undertake a much
longer siege if necessary, although they
assert their preference for seeing the strike
Boon eettled. . ' , ',....
With a federal oourt Injunction hanging
over the headsof the -strikers -.nd a -district
court Injunction 'staring the employ
er in the faoe, ,the contending force are
somewhat restrained. Yet things appeured
to be Vnovlng about as usual yesterday and
that means moving on a moderate scale.
The strikers are proceeding with their af
fairs In a quiet way, while little by little
certain lines of business that were tied up
by the strike are being loosened. What
will happen when the waiters' restraining
order gets to working real well cannot be
told now, but a little Incident transpired
yesterday to suggest that something
might happen. A ccntractor reported that
a certain firm had refused to supply him
with raw material, snd as the injunction
specifically enjoins any firm from such re
fusal. Its application may bring matter to
a test. It Is the intention to place the in
junction in effect by applying it In speclflo
cases like this.
Practically no tangible progress has been
realised in the strike on either side for
several days. Not a single material break
has come about this week and nothing ha
arisen to stimulate hopes of an Immediate
settlement, though a manifest moderation
of sentiment at the Business Men' asso
ciation meeting Tuesday night offer some
encouragement. It 1 thought that after
another conference between the Joint
committees and the governor the force
may be able to decide on eome common
Sis Mora Importations,
Not since Sunday have any nonunion
men been brought into the city. Of those
who had come up to that time about 160
something In the neighborhood of 100 have
been sent out of the city by Uie striking
teamsters; the remainder are at work for
the transfer companies. W. 8. Jardlns of
the Merchants' Express company said that
he had forty-seven team at work yes
teroay and would put on seven more bo
fore night He said his company had a
many as all the other companies together.
The total number of teams at work ts ap

The encoursglng statement le made by
the transfer companies that the congeetlon

'There I no congestion at all, now. We
have been making such steady Inroad on
it that ths congestion is entirely relieved.
We are tsklng care of the traffic very
nicely now."
Some more coal teamsters hsve Joined

Meat Cutters Aro Waiting;.
Still another feature ha developed In the
meat cutters' relations with their employ,
ers. Since the employers decided not to
abide by their endorsement of the union
scale and submitted one of their own, tho
employes have decided to remain at work! Thursday night, when they hold a
special meeting at Labor Tempi. They
have also Interested the Packing Trade
council. Including the packing house em
ployes, in the fight, end this council will
hold a meeting Tuesday night at South
Omahs, or possibly sooner, and take tip
the strike proposition with a view of some
sort of sympsthetlc movement. Many of
the meat cutters aro also members of ths
Packing Trades council. J. A. Bradford,
recretary of the meat cutters, Is president
of the packen.
