At the special meeting of Omaha Retail
Liquor Dealers' association held August
14 a resolution wa pissed Instructing the
secretary to notify the It-trtenders un on
of Omaha, No. J4, through Its secretary,
to take down all tho union br signs now
posted In the saloons operated by our niem-
Ders. You are advlseu to act accord. nsly
and deliver such signs on demand of the
J officers of aald bartenders' union.
A postal card bearing a copy ot the reso
lution was mailed to every saloon keeper In
Omaha last night after the meeting.
'J The officers of the Saloon Keepers' asso-
. elation assert that the resolution Is the. re-
i suit of the refusal of the Eartenders' union
to treat with them as an association whon
difficulties which require adjustment be
tween the union and the Individual tnem-
1 bers of the association arise. The union
has stated emphatically, so the saloon
keepers claim, that It will treat only with
" individual members of the association
when questions pertaining to the employ
ment of Its members arise.
Not Slap at I'nloo.
The statement Is also made that the move
Is not a slap at the association of the bar
tenders, but Is done In the Interest of the
saloon keepers, as they consider the signs
which now hnng In most of the union sa
loons as detrimental to the business of the
owners and It Is for this reason that they
desire their removal. The bartenders will
be allowed to continue wearing their union
buttons and no attack will be made upon
the organisation as It now exists, iv is
'sold that there are now upward of fifty
union saloons running In this city which
"do not display tho union signs.

When asked If the Business Men's asso
ciation had anything to do with tho fram
ing of the resolution which was passed
last night, the officers of the association

MUSICIANS APPEAL TO BATES
"t'nlon Bands Ask Deportment Com-
maader to Intercede for
While General Bates, commander of the
Department of the Missouri, was in the
city this week the Omuha Musicians' union
filed with him a request which, if granted,
will. In the opinion of the union, have con
siderable effect In reducing the competi
tion between the Twenty-second regiment
band at Fort Crook and the civilian mu
sicians of the city.
'" The petition recites that the members ot
the' union are musicians of the city who
depend upon their profession for a liveli
hood, and the competition of the military
bands tends to make their work less car-
. tain; that It Is currently reported that
,upon at least one occasion the military
band has accepted engagements for less
than the current wages of musicians in
-the city in spite of an order of the secre-
' tary of war which was recently Issued
forbidding these bands to work for less
' than the current wages In the town near
est the poet The petition, therefore, asks
that the bandmaster, ar whoever makes
the engagement, be required to pay to the
regimental fund the percentage of receipts
' from engagements now required upon the
' basis of the current rate of wages In the
' town nearest the post and not upon what
the band may actually receive. lie Is also
asked to construe a certain order Issued
by him forbidding the band to accept more
than one engagement at one time.
1 ' Speaking of this a member of the union
"We do not object to competition where
' the competitors are like ourselves de
' pendent fTpon engagements to live but we
do object to military bands, whose receipts
from civil engagements are all profit, mak
Ing prices lower than we can afford to. If
they make the same price we have no ob
' Jectlon, for we can deliver better mualc.
The secretary of war already has specified
that they must not cut rates, but we have
, it on good authority that they have done
, , so. A certain per cent of the receipts of
.,, the band must be paid Into the regiments'.
,., fund, and as I understand It, this percent
,.. age Is high, so that If the regimental offi
cers will but assume that the bandmaster
has not violated the rule of the secretary
of war and levies hla percentage upon the
- ''current scale, the bandmaster wilt not be
so much Inclined to cut prices, si ho not
'- only will get a lower price for his men,
but will be compelled to pay a much larger
part of the actual receipts Into the regi
mental treasury. This will be something
the privates of the band will seriously ob
ject to, and we may thus be able to reduce
' unfair competition.

mission dealers here are to the effect that
the big runs of range cattlo will not begin
for about twenty days A few shipments
of feeders have been mnde, but the buyers
are still busy on their farms, and so ranch
men are holding off. It Is asserted that
grass cattle ate doing nicely and that It
may be about the second week In Sep
tember before the heaviest shipments are
received here. ' Good grades of stockers
and feeders have commanded strong prices
all the week, but commission men say that
on medium and common stock the demand
Is Indifferent. Dtiycrs say they are holding
back to see how the corn crop will turn
out before going into the winter feeding
business very extensively. On beef steers
the market for the year was topped when
a bunch from the west brought $5.40. This
shipment consisted of forty-six head and
the average weight was l.&M pounds.
Heavy shipments of hogs from Iowa are
looked for a little later. So far this year
1.B53.1M head of hogs have been yarded
here. For the five days of this week the
receipts have been 3i.fi3 head, which Is an
Increase over the five days of last week,
but hardly up to the record made for the
corresponding period last year. There Is
now a decrease In hog shipments, as com
pared with a year ago, of S4.197. head.
Llvo stock dealers predict that this deficit
will be made up before long and that there
will be plenty of hogs of good grade on
this market. Sheep receipts this week
numbered 38.510 head, but yesterday
scarcely enough sheep arrived to make a
market. Traveling representatives of live
stock dealers predict that the coming week
will be a big one In the sheep Hue. '
ervlna- gqnatter Notices.
At the request of City Attorney Murdoek
a number of printed notices have been
prepared ordering squatters off public
streets and alleys. City Engineer Beal
has been asked to preparo a list of the
squatters, but as he has done this so many
times In the past, he knows every location.
It Is the Intention now to have the city
engineer and P. A Barrett, the city claim
agent, drive about the city and serve the
notices. Barrett Is a special policeman and
will serve the notices and make a return
to the mayor and city council. Just how
soon these notices can be served Is not
known, as Mr. Barrett Is confined to his
home with a severe attack of rheumatism.
By the serving of these notices the city
attorney expects to prevent squatters from
acquiring title to any of the city streets

turned from a trip covering a large portion
of the south. He Is now enroute to his
headquarters at Butte, Mont. In speaking
of conditions In the south Mr. Carpenter
said that the corn and cotton crops would
be considerably above tho average, and
especially so as compared with last year.
As for cattle, he said that stock all looked
to be In first-class condition.
Rev. W. D. Stambaua-h Arrives.
Rev. W. D. Stambaugh, former pastor of
the Methodist Episcopal church at Spring,
