For Immigrant Distribution.
In the closing hour of the session Harry
A. Lipsky, manager of the industrial re
moval office at Chicago, made an earnest
and loudly applauded appeal for co-opera
tion in the work he represents, which work
Is that of diverting Jewish Immigration
from the congested parts of New York
and other cities Into the small towns of
the nation and clearing out the ghettos
The Industrial Removal society Is prac
tically an outgrowth or continuation of
the Roumanian committee, born at the
time of the massacres and rery sjccess-
ful In its labors. Mr. Lipsky stated that
there are 350,000 people in on square tulle
of New Tork City, but that the Retrieval
society expects to take out 0,000 cf them
this year and to continue the work until
all are cleared. His closing remark to the
convention was: "We must break up
these ghettos In New Tork, Philadelphia
and wherever else they may exist, and so
divert our Immigration that never again
will such disease-breeding and Immoral
ity-fostering congestions exist,"
Having elected its officers at the Sun
day session, the - convention yesterday
morning turned Its attention to Incidental
matters and adopted a resolution which
pledges the members of the order to give
financial and other support to the recently
outraged Jews of Russia and empowers
the general committee to memirallie the
government at Washington If it sees fit.
The resolution -was drafted uy a special
committee appointed yesterday aid headed
by Judge Philip Stein of Chicago. It reads:
We have heard with feelings of Inex
pressible horror of the fiendish outrages
lately committed upon our co-rellglonlsts
In and around Klshenlff, Russia, and stand
aghast at the thought that such atrocities,
worthy of savages oevoid of all civilisation,
could have been perpetrated In the opening
years of the twentieth century. Our hearts
go out in sympatny to our siricicen oretn
ten and we stand ready at any and all
times to render them wnatever assistance,
financial or otherwise, their necessities may
demand, and to take such action in the
premises, so far as this may be possible, ss
will lead to the absolute prevention of any
repetition of the outrages in question. We
therefore recommend that the Incoming
general committee be authorised to Issue
an appeal to lodges and others for pe
cuniary help and that It be left to their
Judgment and discretion to memorialise.
If tney see fit. the government at Washing
ton fur the adoption of all proper measures
and to take sucn other and further steps as
In their opinion the emergency may now or
hereinafter require.
Personnel of General Committee.
The general committee upon which la
thus made to devolve responsibility for
future action Includes Judge Stein, A. B.
Eeelenfreund, both of Chicago, 8. Living
ston of Bloomlngton and William Tauslg,
Other committees ar.4 trustees named
yesterday were: - Endowment trustees,
H. Hirsch, D. Adler and H. Swimmer, all
of whom are already serving In such
capacity; Cleveland Orphan asylum
trustees, A. Loeb, B. Heavenrlch, U H
Heller and S. Woolner; Denver Asylum for
Consumptives trustee, Israel Cowen. The
Intellectual advancement committee Is yet
to be named.

possible for holders of endowment policies
therein to designate who shall be their
beneficiaries Instead of making it Impera
tive that an endowment when paid after
death shall be divided among the members

sentiment of the convention seemed to be

wishes of the north end: therefore 1-e It

lines by the present city council end had
only voted on the original ordinance to
permit Its first and second reading snd
reference to committee In defense rf th
right of free speech and that he had re
fused to vote for a new ordinance some
what like the present ordinance when It
was proposed to Introduce one after Judge
Dickinson had offered to modify Ms re
straining order to permit that action. He
said that residents of the Fifth ward were
opposed to dividing that ward anl adding
the north end to the south end of the Sixth
ward. He said that as member of the

harmoniously. Mayor Moores presided
and Messrs Broatch, Ppratlen and Thomas
were present. . Bills for the two depart

Tram Drivers Desert.
One effect of the present strikes In Omaha
on which will be materially felt la thst
a large number of the workmen are leav
ing or preparing to leave the city. Fifty
carpenters out of probably 150 who went
on strike have secured employment In
Cheyenne under union conditions and will
leave at once for that place. Other car
penters are preparing to go to other places.
In addition to these, many of the elec
trical workers who hsve figured In th
strike have obtained steady work else
where and are "packing up" to start for
their new places of employment end resi
dence. Neither of these two crafts stands out
conspicuously at this stsge of the strike,
though th carpenters cut a much greater
figure than is apparent They, with other
building trades unions, ar tied up and will
be unable to turn a hand until the team
sters' strike is settled. This simply means
that the great volume of new building that
was started muat wait until all matters
are adjusted. And while, since the team
sters have conceded the two cardinal points
of no boycotts and sympathetic strikes, an
early settlement seems possible, it will
naturally require some little time to run
the full length and patch up the differ
ences with all the various organisations.
Impressed with this fact. In view of the
rapidly fleeting season, the divers uncer
tainties of a settlement and tempted by
flattering offers elsewhere, the carpenters
and electrical workers, many of them, have
taken advantage of their opportunities and
arranged to leave th city.
Hearing; of Injnncttoas.
Testerday afternoon saw the beginning
of the Inquiry Into the circumstances at
tending the applications for the Injunction
against the testaurant workers and the tat
ter's counter Injunction sgalnst the hotel
and restaurant owners. J. O. Yelser, for
the strikers, and T. J. Mahoney, for the
employers, appeared as the attorneys. The
proceedings are being held in the head
quarters building of the waiters on Farnam
street. The hearing yesterday was rather
preliminary In character, but on witness
really testifying. He was W. H. Balduff,
proprietor of the Balduff restaurant and a
member of the employers' press committee.
Mr. Balduff's (estlmony brought out the
co-operative spirit and purpose of the Busi
ness Men's sssoclatton. He testified that
that association, since the strike began,
contributed funds for the maintenance of
two of the smaller restaurants of the city
whose owners were among the number
that refused to sign the union scale. These
proprietors cast their lot with the Busi
ness Men's association and, not being able
financially to withstand the pressure of the
strike, received aid from the association.
Mr. Balduff further stated that the asso
ciation lent Its combined, influence to the
transfer companies in aiding them to bring
In new men from other cities. He said that
W. 8. Jardlne of .the Omaha Merchants'
Express and Transfer company was selected
as the special representative of the associa
tion to go to 8U Loiri and employ a cer
tain number, of men' to come here and sup
plant team drivers who had struck.
The Inquiry will be continued today and
perhaps many days to come, as both sides
of the case are to be probed.
Laundries Start Ip.
Testerday all the steam laundries that
were closed by the rtrike reopened and
fifteen girls left the rsnks of the strikers
and returned to their old positions. Six
teen union teamsters deserted and took up
their former places driving trsnsfer
wagons. At least this Is the statement
made by J. E. Crews, president of the
Team Drivers' union. The transfer com
panies put on many more wagons yester
day snd they count on Increasing the num
ber from day to day. W. S. Jardlne of the
Omaha Merchants' Express and Transfer
company said that he had almost a full
quota of teams, nearly ninety, at work and
that forty of his old men went back yes
terday. About thirty of these, however,
did not strike and were retained on regular
wages during the period they were Idle.
The teamsters believe the remainder of
.h.i. mn will stand out until the end.
The city still enjoys freedom from any
.......tinn nf disturbance due to the un
settled labor situation. With the Increased
number of teams at work came no viola

For I'nlon Lanndry Work.
As to ths restaurant and ths laundry
workers, they still assert their determina
tion to hold out for their original demands.
The laundry workers appear undisturbed
by the desertion of fifteen girls yesterday
morning and say they are fortifying their
position and will be able to maintain a
better front. They have arranged to open
a large "counting" room at 1S28 Capitol
avenue, where they will receive work that
will be sent to the laundries at Platts
mouth and Fremont, run on th co-operative
plan. The laundry workers havs ar
ranged to run theae two tabllihmenta
from ( in the afternoon until 7 In th morn
ing. Th Oarrett laundry here, which
signed the scale, la planning to keep three
shifts st work and run night and day.
The laundries that opened yesterday
morning have sent out a few wagons, but
made no effort to send out al! of them.
As ths laundry men advertised yester
day, they will depend on their customers
delivering their own goods for a few days
until things are more settled. Th laundry
men express themselves aa quite surprised
at the favorable conditions already. Th

Season's Work Brought to Close by a
Show of the Class
The gymnasium classes of the Toung
Women's Chrlatlsn association closed their
season's work last evening with a pro
gram of drills and ball games most en
tertaining to the audience of parents and
friends that crowded one half the floor
space .of the gymnasium, in the Paxton
block. The participants were members
of the beginning and Intermediate classes
and the program was intended chiefly to
show the various exercises that constitute
the regular class work rather than any
attempt at an exhibition, for the room Is
too cramped to admit of anything more
The program opened with a floral drill
by th claas of little girls who In pretty
white frocks, went through the various
figures snd exercises with hoops wound
with flowers. A dumbbell drill by the
intermediate class, was snother pleasing
feature. The first half of a basket ball
game between the afternoon and evening
classes came next, the participants being
afternoon center, Alice Stvens; forwards,
Ethel and Ella Marshall; guards, Bernice
McDowell and Margaret Langdon. Even
ing: Center, norence Parmalee; forwards,
Nellie Talbot and Floretta Walters;
guards, Gertrude McDowell and Mary

gam of center ball occupied the Interval
befor th second half, the game resulting
21 to 11 In favor of the afternoon class.
