THE ISSUES OF THE STRIKE
A Plain Statement from the Business Men's
To reach a correct conclusion of th difference now existing between veral
latmr union In Omaha and their employer. represented y th Busines Men aspo
rtation. th nrat thing necessary I to have correct knowledge of the matter In Issue.
Thl I not controversy fteotlng rate of wage, hour of labor or anltary condi
tion surrounding employe.
THE ISSUES ARE:
First Th labor organisation Involved In the present controversy demand what
they call recognition" of their union. Th business men concede recognition In th
sen that th laborer have a right to form unions, and. If they ee fit, to bo repre
sented by these unions in negotiating with their employer. But uch right I not
hat I meant by th term recognition" a used by th union. They demand a a
part of recognition" that th employer hall enter Inti a contract to hire and re
tain In hi employment none but member of their union. Thl demand th em
ployer resist, contending that they hav a right to employ whom they please, with
out discriminating in favor of or against union or nonunion labor. Tho employer
contend that thl right of election on their part I essential to their control of their
own business, and that th making of th contracts demanded would amount to a
conspiracy entered Into by th employer to deny tho nonunion workman either th
right or the opportunity to earn a living by hi calling.
Second Thn union lnslt upon the right at uch time and for ueh raon a
they, end they alone, shall deem fit, to organise and maintain systematic boycott in
which their employer must become partlea, participating with them. That I, that
th employ shall have not only th right to ay that ho will not deal or trad with
any person who I declared unfair, but that hi employer must suspend all business
relations with such person, without having any vclce In determining the Justice of
th complaint (gainst the boycotted party. Thl demand th Business Men' assocla
tlon resist, contending that every merchant. manufacUrer or other employer shall
hav the right to continue hi business relation with .hi customer without regard
to whether ioiiw union, of which he Is not a member and In which he has no vote,
shall decide that the customer Is deserving of social cr business ostracism.
Third Th labor unions Involved in thl controversy insist upon the right to In
stitute and maintain what are known a sympathetic strikes, by and through which
all of the employe of any employer, without having uny grievance of their own, or
any complaint to mak agalnat their employer, may, at their will, under a decision
Arrived at without hi participation, bring all of his business to a standstill because
those employed by ome other party, or even In some other line of work, hav seen
fit to withdraw from their employment. This demand the Business Men's association
resists, contending that no employer ought to be subject to an arbitrary suspension
of his business, that no quarrel or dissatisfaction existing betweer him and hi em
ployes, simply because there Is dissatisfaction In some other lln of employment or
with some other employer.
These are th Issue Involved in th present labor disturbance, and upon th Jus

These conflicting statements wr made
Sunday snd Indicate the confidence which
both aides to the strike manifest In their
respective causes and chances of victory.
In view of the published plans of the
restaurants and laundries to open this
morning a report became current to the
effect that the transfer companies, which
had been running short forces of wagons,
would today materially enlarge their serv
ice by the addition of many of their old
men who hav been among the striker.
The transfer men have taken th position
that enough will return to practically
break the backbone ot the strike and pave
the way for the Influx of the rest. On the
other hand, the strikers contend that their
forces are still Intact and will so remain
until the present controversy Is settled,
The striking teamsters have agreed to
make on Concession. They hav proposed
to th transfer compAnie to strike out
of their schedule of demand that clause
Insisting on sympathetic strikes, which was
on of th cardinal point of th Business
Men's association against th unions. Th
transfer men have not given their answer
on this matter.
Vp to tho Employers,
'It is up to the employers now," said
Treasurer Wilcox yesterday. "We have
agreed to withdraw this provision for eym
pathetic strikes and If they will agree to
th remainder of our demand the strike
can easily be eettled tomorrow.

is concerned, I can say authoritatively that

PARIS, May 17.-Th threatened anti
clerical demonstrations In the Fan
churches did not come off today, the only
serious trouble occurring this afternoon
being at Belleville When a priest entered
the pulpit of a church a number of Free
Thinkers began shouting "Enough! Who
uthorlsed you to apeak?"
Members of th Society of Cathollo
Youths, who were present In strong foroe,
attacked the manlfestants with their fist
and cane. The melee quickly became gen-
rat, chairs wer thrown and women began
shrieking. . Th police wer called In, sep
arated the combatant and expelled those
who had started the manifestations. Five
persons were arrested and seversl were In
jured. The arrival of two funeral helped
to restore Order.
A church at Plalsanca wa th cn of
an attempted disturbance by socialists,
but the presence qt 600 defenders of the
priests, mostly Lavellltt butchers, who
urrounded the altar and the pulpit, over
awed them 'and no trouble occurred.
At Marseilles there wa an antl-clerlret
