CITY LABORERS COMPLAIN
Aisert They Are DocVed for Tims Going;
to Get Warrants.
PREFER TO WAIT MONTH FOR PAY
Chief Clerk Cobnrn of Mreet C ora
mlKnlonrr'l Orllce ays
Time la l oaf 1st This
Complaints are ieiiig mart by teamsters
and larmiers employed by the Park coin
mission thut they are forced to lose an
appreciable amount of wanes because they
have to go to the city hall for their war
rants. The commission ha" not yet started to
pay the men on the weekly plan as directed
by the charter. biU the employes are ob
jecting to a change, saying that the trip to
the city hall every week will be so ex
pensive they would prefer to wait a month
or more for their pay.
Tark Superintendent Adams has figured It
out that a teamster must lose $1.09 every
time he comes to the city hall during
working hours, and as the comptroller s
office Is open at no other time, the team
sters and laborers have to lose, as they
are docked for the absence by the park
foreman. Four trips each month would
mean a loss of more than $t to the team
ster and about half as much to the laborer.
,o Time Taken from Men.
According to William Coburn. chief clerk
In the street commissioner's offlcj and for
a long time In charge of the payrolls of
the public works department, no time Is
ever taken from the wages of the city
employes fur Journeying to the city hall to
procure and cash their warrants. In some
cases the men have been required to make
up time lost by working overtime, but It
seems they always have had t.ie privilege
of making the trip for their money.
"Most of the men who do not assign their
wages are able to get here during the noon
hour,, when they can get their warrants the
same aa at any other time of the day," eaid
Peputy Comptroller Cosgrove. "The per
centage of men who turn over their pay to
brokers and 4raw In advance Is large.
These men never come near the office. The
weekly payment plnn has not cut oft to
exceed 11 per cent of the assignments. Its
chief result has been to Increase the dis
count paid to the broker. Formerly 10 per
cent a month was charged. Now It la 3 per
cent a week.
!tever Heard Complaints.
"I never heard any complaint from la
borers or teamsters about losing time and
-wagea by having to come to the city hall
for their warrants. I have known cases,
however, where foremen stood hand In
glove with the money lenders and on failure
to Jndure men under them to assign their
pay threatened to dock them for time lost
If they went to the city hall. I do not know
that any foreman ever carried out his
"The charter makera planned to reduce
warrant ehnvlng by the weekly rayment
plan, but In this respect the Innovation Is
a practical failure. The men who used to
assign their pay whenever they felt the
need of a dollar do the same as usual. The
thrifty workman who manages to keep a
little ahead of the game lets his warrants
accumulate for three or four weeks before
calling for them. Meanwhile the brokers
DENIES REGENTS IN POLITICS
neaent Ernst Call on Rev, I.ndden
to Produce Correspondence on
Which Covert Charsre la Made.
"I wish you would say for me," said C.
J. Ernst of the auditor's department of
the Burlington and who la one of the
members of the Board of Regents of the
University of Nebraska, "that your Lin
coln correspondent has been misled Into
making statements about the university
regents seeking to control the nominations
of membera to be elected In November,
which are unfair and unwarranted by the
' "I do not hesitate to say that I am the
Individual who wrote the letter to Dr.
Ludden upon which thla charge 'read be
tween the lines' la based, but the letter
Itself will bar out no such construction.
I herewith ask my friend, Dr. Luddcn,
either to withdraw the charge entirely and
unreservedly. In a public manner, or else
give out for publication In full his com
munication ts me of July 6, last, broaching
his candidacy for regent, and my reply,
likewise In full. While thia correspond
ence begun by Dr. Ludden Is of a strictly
personal nature, I have not the slightest
objection to lta being submitted to the
eyes of every citizen of Nebraska, for It
will most convincingly show the very oppo
site of the present Insinuation.
"Not only haa the Board of Regents,
ver since I have been a member, refrained
scrupulously from trying to Influence the
nominations made for regents, but politics
haa never been considered In any of the
matters which have coma up for action."
Sudden Attack of Dysentery Cared.
A prominent lady of Brooklyn, N. T.,
Writes to Inquire where she can obtain
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera an! Diarrhoea
Remedy. She says: "While stopping at a
ranch In Bouth Dakota I was taken 111 of
what seemed to be cholera. They gave ma
some of this medicine and It cured me. I
brought a bottle home and have just used
the hist of it today. Mother was taken aud
