epreeentntivea of the city and county
government reached on agreement as to
the payment of the apecial ueputy sheriffs
after a long and animated discussion at
the court house yesterday. The remun
eration for the specials Is now guaranteed
half by the city and halt by the county.
While lacking- formal ratification on the
part of the city council, the word of the
mayor, board of fire and police commis
sioners and city attorney was given that
the municipality will bear Its share of the
The understanding culminated In a resolu
tion by Commissioner q'Keeffe. seconded by
Commissioner Connolly, In which It Is
specified that the county shall bear the
expense to Monday 18; that the city will
stand for the salaries until an amount
equal to the debt already Incurred by the
county la reached. If the strike Is not
settled by that time an agreement la to be
drawn by the county and city attorneys
and adopted by both branches of the
government whereby the county and city
Jointly assume the responsibility ' for pay
ment. The depleted financial condition of both
the city and county treasuries was the
principal obstruction to an early under
standing. It was agreed early that peace
and order must be preserved In the city at
any cost, but how this cost Is to be dis
posed of was a question that appeared ex
ceedingly difficult to solve.
Alarmed at the Expense.
It was at the Instigation of the commis
sioners that the conference was called.
Mayor Moores, City Attorney Connell, Chief
of Police Donahue and Commissioners
Broatch, Bpratlen and Thomas of the Board
of Fire 4nd Police Commissioners repre
sented the city, while County Attorney
English, Sheriff Power and Commissioners
llofetdt,. Connolly, O'Keeffe and McDonald
were present for the county. Connolly on
Saturday became alarmed at the expense
entailed by the deputy sheriffs and pro
posed that the municipality be called In to
share the expense. He said that the cost
of the additional policing to date was close
to $3,000, there being 130 men at $2.60 per
Connolly was the aggressor at the confer
ence. At first he said he did not see the
necessity of using so large a number of
deputies, but after plain statements by the
mayor, the chief and the sheriff modified
his views somewhat. Me went over the
county's financial condition at length, say
Ing that twenty days after the last levy
was made the amount was exhausted, that
there Is a floating Indebtedness In out
standing claims of $160,000 and that the legal
limit of mill tax for the general fund
prevented the county from getting out of
Its predicament. Commissioner O'Keeffe
explained that liabilities could be con
tr acted only to a certain amount, after
which the commissioners became liable on
their bonds, and that the limit was at hand,

Concerning the city's finances Attorney
Connell devoted some time to explaining
that the levy for the various city funds had
been made to the full legal limit for the
year and that the police fund, the only
fund that could be drawn on for paying
special policemen. Is short and Insufficient
to maintain the present regular force of
lxty-elght patrolmen. Fire and Police Com
mlastoner Broatch acknowledged that the
board might Increase the police force as
long aa the funds lasted, but said In less
than two months the resources would be
exhausted and the city would be without
police protection of any kind for the re

HASCALLITES STILL PLOTTING
Trylngr to Devise a War Hold On by
FlllaaT lmpeachmcat CkauraTOa
Another council of war was held by the
defeated anti-machine leaders Saturday
within closed doors with a view to making
a last desperate effort towards the capture
of the city hall and the municipal pie
counter. At this meeting, held In the New
York Life building, two plans are said to
have been discussed. One was to Institute
proceedings against Mayor Moores on the
line of those taken by W. J. Broatch six
years ago when he sought to bar out
Moores on the ground of alleged Ineligibil
ity. The other was the more desperate
plan still to start Impeachment proceedings
against Mayor Moores and have him sus
pended long enough to ettaole , President
Karr of the council to sign his name as
acting mayor to the Thirteen ward divi
sion ordinance and thus project four hold
over councllmen Into the new city council,
have that body organised In the Interest
of the corporations and at the same time
to block the confirmation of any appoint
ments Moores might make after the
prosecution Is dropped or knocked out In
Under a provision of the charter three
councllmen can file Impeachment charges
against the mayor and It Is discretionary
with the court to suspend him pending
the hearing. Such a scheme was tried by
Hascall against Mayor George P. Bemls
ten years ago, but the court at that time
refused to suspend the mayor and Bemls
continued In office during the Impeachment
trial, which ended In his acquittal. If thin
latter plan of attack on Mayor Moores Is
adopted It will, it Is said, probably be baned
upon affidavits to be made by the negro
politician, Victor Walker, ono of the ardent
supporters of Mr. Benson in the last city
campaign, charging that Mayor Moores
took money to permit Walker or some
of his kind to run disorderly houses in the
city. During the campaign Walker offered
to make such affidavit, but the managers
of the Benson campaign would not permit
It, fearing that It would do more damage
at the breech than at the mutzle.
From the actions of Interested parties
yesterday It seemed that much of the
plan depended upon first securing a vacat
ing of the restraining order Issued by Judge
Dickinson, holding up the redisricting
ordinance. The councllmen, through their
attorneys, Breen and Ten Eyck. served
notice of a hearing to have the order modi
fled Friday and again took It up yesterday
morning. They were on hand, as was
Frank Weaver, attorney for the complain
ants, but Judge Dickinson was holding
court In Burt county and will not return
before Wednesday, the day upon which the
order waa made returnable In the first In.
stance. While they were waiting at the
closed door John T. Cathers, who la en
glneeiing the other scheme, came to the
court room to learn what waa being done
and when he found that the Judge was out
of the city, and had made no arrangements
with other Judgea to take up any casea on
his docket, he expressed displeasure and
chagrin. Later there was another confer
ence between' Mr. Cathers and hla asso
elates In the New York Life building, but
none of the parties to the conference would
make any statement at Its conclusion.

FRANCIS 10 GO TO CHICAGO
Eejort that General Passenger Agent of B.
& M. is to Be Promoted,
CHANGE IS EXPECTED BY FIRST OF JULY
Hallroad Men Believe Francis Is to
Become the Head of the Paiitn
ger Department of the
John Francis, general passenger agent for
the B. St M., is, according to reports that
come from ordinarily reliable railroad
sources, to be made general passenger
agent of the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy
system, with headquarters at Chicago. Mr.
Francis Is In Denver and the matter Is not
being discussed at the B. A M. headquar
ters, but local railroad men outside of the
Burlington offices believe the report to be
true and look for the change to take effect
within a very short time, possibly not later
than July 1. Not. only Is this report ac
credited In Omaha, but Chicago railroad
men also give credence to It. One Chicago
official who was In Omaha on business a
few days ago said:
"I cannot tell definitely, but all alma

uarius Aiiiier. formerly second vice presi
dent of the Great Northern, was trans

inis vacated the general passenger agency.
In Line with Hill's Policy.
Since the abolition of the c.nw.i
tlslng department of the B. & M. in Omaha,
wiiicn. unaer Mr. Francis, did a vast
amount of work for the Chicago and St.
Louis offices, railroad men have been
anticipating some other more Important
changes. The' rumor has been curr.ni f-
some time that Hllliam would become so
dominant on the B. A M. aa to h.v. k.
effect of doing away entirely with the
eenerai passenger agency here and creat
ing a division passenger agency Instead.
The report of Mr. Francis transfer to
tnicago tends to confirm this rumor and
bear out the theory that Hill proposes to
operate his new lines, as far as possible,
from Chicago. The recent transfer from
Lincoln to Chicago of a large force of
clerks is another evidence oi this policy
which has so distinctly characterized all
of Mr. Hill s movements aa to have become
known In railroad affairs aa "Hllllsm."

ASSAULT ON THE OVERALL
Pnrpose of Manufacturers' Organisa
tion Formed at Mllwnakea
Deliberately and with disregard of the
effect on the American worklngman, for
whom It has been at once a bulwark and a
closest friend, an assault Is to be made
upon that historic Institution, the American
overall. The plan Is not to tear the gar
ment from Its wearer altogether, but to
undermine It and so debase Its grade that
It will cease to be the protection It now Is,
and become so nearly a mere transparency
that regard for possible chance scrutiny by
polite society will force (he wearer to admit
the Intrusion of a second garment between
It and him.
Such Is practically the confession of W.
B. Rooney, buyer for M. E. Smith A Co. of
Omaha, who attended In Milwaukee, Sat
urday, a meeting at which was organized
the Western Association of Manufacturers
and Jobbers of Men's Wear. This organiza
tion of Imposing name proposes to secure,
if possible, an agreement of all western
jobbers at Omaha, St. Joseph, Kansas City
and points farther east that hereafter the
overall sold the trade at $4.50 per dozen
shall be of seven-ounce stuff Instead of
nine-ounce, as now. made. The promoters
of the plan aver that, made as they now
are, overalls are money-losers for all who
sell them, and decline to consider the hu
mane feature of the case
"The dispatches concerning the meeting
were erroneous In ascribing to us any trust
motives," said Mr. Rooney yesterday.
"We met merely to try to get together on
prices of certain of our staples and pre
vent a price cutting that has gone so far
that we are all losing money on the gar
ments. Even using the seven-ounce stuff
there will still be no profit in overalls.
"How far we will get with our reforma
tion Is a matter of doubt. Last February
Invitations to a consultation were sent by
circular to ninety-five firms In this terri
tory and twenty-six accepted the Invitation.
But only fifteen were present at the meet
ing last Saturday. I was the only one from
Omaha and there were no representatives
from Kanaas City or St. Joseph. Other
Omaha firms are willing to enter the agree
ment, but of course we will take no ac
tlon unless those of the two cities farther
