Several hundred men, representing- various
labor organisations of the elty, accepted
the Invitation of the Clgnrmnkers' union
and assemhled at Labor temple Monday
night to hear addresses on the subject of
the ttnlon label and Its. use as a means of
promoting the welfare tit the unions. Speak
ers from a number of labor organizations
and from some of Omaha's publications had
places on the program.
Louis V. Guye, president of the Central
Labor union, urged the use of Union made
goods of all kinds. The boycott and the
Strike he mentioned as the old and un
couth weapons of the unions and spoke of
the union label as the weapon of the future.
He said union men should always ask for
the label. Mr. Guye paid a compliment to
the Clgarmakers' union aa the father of the
union label.
T. W. McCullough said the union label on
an article gave assurance to the purchaser
that It was not made In the penitentiary.
Union men should buy union goods, he said.
If for no other reason than that their rela
tions to the employers of organized labor
called for their patronage. He pointed out
the fact that union use of union labeled
goods made an Increased business for trio
makers of the goods anT consequently In
creased demand for union labor.
John Hogan of the Labor and Home In
dustry league told of the Inefficiency of the
boycott as formerly applied. Instead of ad
vertising by boycott the man who does not
employ union labor he advised a persistent
demand for the union label. Mr. Hogan said
the league is preparing a list of union made
articles sold In the city and the places
where they can be obtained.
C. F. Mlchaelson, secretary of the Street
Railway Mens anion, advised his hearers
to Instruct their wives and daughters on the
Subject of the union label and request them
to ask for the label as often as they mads a
purchase. ' ' - - .

Nicholas Innei a Call for a Second Confer
ence at The Hague.
Belief That Invitations t Were Seat
Oat geveral Days Ase and That
They Have Been Accepted.
BT. PETERSBURG, Sept. 18-Emperot
Nicholas today agflln appears before the
world as a promoter of universal peace.
No sooner is the Russo-Japanese war over,
and even before the peace treaty has been
ratified, than his majesty issues invitations
to a second peace conference at The
That the emperor has done so was
learned today from a source which leaves
no shadow of doubt as to Its authenticity.
The announcement created the greatest
surprise here, and that Russia should plan
a second conference, despite the steps al
ready taken by President Roosevelt, was
also heard with amazement. It Is clear
that the step could not be taken by Rus
sia without first reaching a complete un
derstanding with President Roosevelt. The
fact that President Roomvelt Is reported
as being entirely in sympathy with the
proposal, and that he Bald that to the In
itiator of the first The Hague should be
long the honor of convoking the second,
and readily and gladly accoded to the Rus
sian proposal. Is clear proof that the con
ference has already been called and that
President Roosevelt relinquished his part
In it to the emperor.
Invitations Already Accepted.
There is strong reason to believe that
the news even of the intention of the Rus
sian government would not be given out
unless Invitations had already been sent
to the powers and possibly their answers
had been received. In this connection an
interesting question arises aa to how the
Invitation was communicated to Japan, In
view of the lack of diplomatic relations
but the invitation may be delayed until
such relations have been resumed, or It
may have been forwarded through the
United States.
It was Impossible to learn tonight the
proposed date of the second conference, or
to gain even an approximate Idea regard
Ing it, but It probably will not be greatly
delayed. Russia, as the power convoking
the conference, will probably . submit an
rfnctal program,- the other powers .submit
ting suggestions.
Cur Will tUp Treaty.
The Associated Press was assured today
that the emperor's cruise will not Involve
delay In the signing of the peace treaty,
an official copy of which, with all docu
ments pertaining to the conferences Is on
the way here with, the members of the
peace commission, who arrived at Cher
bourg tonight. The treaty is expected to
be In St. Petersburg by Thursday or Fri
day next.
The full text of the treaty Is already
known to his majesty and his advisors,
having been cabled from Portsmouth, but
comparison and scrutiny of the copies, en
grossing and other clerical work will take
two or three days.
The completed treaty will be taken to
Petcrhof for signature, probably by Count
Wine's Party at Cherbourg;.
CHERBOURG, France, Sept. 18. The
Kaiser Wllhelm II arrived here this even
ing. Madame Witte, her daughter, Mme.
Narychklne, and the latter's husband,
Cyril Narychklne, secretary of the Russian
legation here, went on board the vessul
to meet M. Wltte. The party was driven
to a hotel and will leave early tomorrow
morning on a special train for Paris.
PLYMOUTH, England, Sept. 18. The
North German steamer Kaiser Wllhelm II.,
from New York, September 12, having on
board, M. Witte and colleagues, arrived
here today. The Russians, who were in
good health, went on to Cherbourg, where
they will land this evening.
During the voyage a charity concert,
under the patronage of M. Wltte, was
given on the Kaiser Wllhelm II. Reply
ing to a toast to his health, the 'Russian
statesman said:
"I crave your permission to say that
the meed of praise which you think la
due me In reality belongs to my august
sovereign. - whose will 1 was merely In
strumental in carrying out. What was
well done In that historic transaction re
cently completed at Portsmouth was
planned by his majesty and executed by
me aa his servant.
"I should like to draw attention to the
fact that Blnce we left the hospitable
shores of the United Elates ws have been
sailing under the German flag and to all
Intents and purposes living on a plecs of
German floating territory, and I need not
remind you that the august ruler of that
empire Is a warm friend of the Russian
emperor and of President Roosevelt. I
am sure, therefure. that I am the expo
nent of your on wishes when I propose
that we rise to the honor of his majesty
Emperor William II."

Have you heard of the telephone automo

morrow with Vance Lane as chauffeur.
Vance has his fighting Jacket on and he
proposes to electrocute Hoye and smash
the machine at the rate of fifty miles an
hour, regardless of the city ordinances.
The motor power behind the young law
yers' uprising In behalf of the candidacy
of Judge Vlnsonhaler's chief clerk for the
Impending vacancy on the county bench
Is C. G. McDonald, but the motive Is not
altogether out of benevolent devotion to
the widows and orphans. An Inspection of
the records In the county court shows that
McDonald has been special guardian for
about one-fourth of the estates that have
required an appointive administrator at the
hands of the court. Why McDonald, who
Is not known to be overburdened with
wealth, should have been given preference
over all other people will be explained
some of these days.
A spilt ticket Is being circulated which
should be scanned carefully by the voters.
One of Its peculiarities Is that It omits en

A ladv teacher In South Dakota savs:
I was compelled to give Vp teaching for
nearly four years because of what the
physicians called ' nervous dyspepsia." Nor
was I of any use in the household economy
I was in many respects a wreck.
"I had numerous physicians, . one after
another, and took many different kinds of
medicine, but they did me no good.
"Finally, live years ago, I began to use
Grape-Nuts food. I grew stronger in
very short time on the hew diet and was
soon able to resume and am still teaching.
I no longer use drugs of any kind, my dye
pepsla has disappeared and I am a hearty
woman thanks to Grape-Nuts." Name

There's a reason. Brain work and worry
take strengtn rroin the stomacn and bow
els. They become too weak to handle the
fried meat, eggs, bacon, coffee and whit
bread; so, partly digested, they decay and
cause all sorts of trouble, which will be
come chronic if continued. Then the nerves
and brain grow weary, for they are de
prived of the rebuilding elements the food
must furnish to replace the soft, gra
filling of nerve centers and brain which is
partly used up each day.
Now comes tha mission of Grape-Nuts to
supply the "Reason." Made in a pcculla
and scientific way of the selected parts of
Wheat and Barley, this famous food con
tains natural phosphate of potash with al
bumen, which combines with water In the
body and makes that gray matter quickly
and surely. Then when nerves and bral
feel the power of new made and properly
made oella. the strength returns to storo
ach as well as other' parts. "There's
reason-" Anyon can prove It.

SOUTH OMAHA. Sept. I8.-T0 the Editor
f The Bee: There, has never been an In
tance'when Fred. Hoye, In his capacity
as member of the Omaha city council, has
not stood ready to aid South Omaha in
any undertaking .beneficial to the city and
its Inhabitants. Not only has Mr. Hoye
looked after South Omaha Interests that
came before the Omaha council, but he
has put In much valuable time seeing to It
that such interests were brought to a suc
cessful termination. Ills latest achieve
ment In this direction was the condemning
of a certain strip of land tbat prevented
the connecting of Twenty-fifth street with
the boulevard, ah" object sought for a num
ber of years arid which will prove of
great benefit to the Maglo City. South
Omaha generally remembers its friends
and Mr. Hoye will undoubtedly have oc
casion to feel proud of the endorsement
he will receive at the hands of South
Omaha republicans' Tuesday.
Why Benl Slmnld Oe Nominated.
SOUTH OMAHA. Sept. 18,-To the Editor
of, The J5ee: The only candidate from
South Omaha Is Herman Beal, who is seek
ing the nomination for county surveyor.
It seems to me If ve expect success at the
polls this fall South Omaha should be rep
resented on the ticket. It is a foregone
conclusion that if we expect to get men
out to vote they must have some Induce
ment. South Omaha asks this place on the
ticket, as it feels it Is entitled to repre
sentation. That Mr. Beal Is competent Is
Ithout question, having located 500 miles
of the present railroad system -of the Bur
lington In Nebiaska, Wyoming. South Da
kato and Colorado, constructed the only
railroad tunnel In Nebraska and success
fully filled the office of city engineer for
the city of South Omaha for the last
twelve years. This should be a sufficient
guarantee of his ability. During his long
residence In Bouth Omaha he has made a
host of friends who are ready to testify to
his, character aa a citizen and neighbor.
Having been a life-long republican and al
ways ready to work for the good of the
party, he la sorely entitled to recognition
at this time.
A Question of Bridges.
OMAHA. Sept. 18 To the Editor of The
Bee: I wish to call the attention of the
voters to the building of the bridge over
the Elkhorn. near Elk City. Its building
was authorised January 19, 1901. It was
to be 200 feet long, was to rest on flfty-
four-lnch tubes, twenty-eight feet song. The
price for the bridge complete was to be
tlS,868. I-ater when the Itemized bill wae
rendered It contained this Item:
112 feet tubing, at IS 12.800
The bill was allowed. The report In Its
favor was signed by Ostrom, Connelly,
Hoetor, Harte and Hofeldt.
In IPOS when the bridge began to fall
down two experts examined It. They re
ported under date of September fO, 190S.
They reported the east tube piers out of
place at the top and bottom, the super
structure not properly anchored to the
piers. Although the bridge was less than
two years built, the plans and specifica
tions had been lost, that the tube piers
had no proper foundation and that the
piers themselves were twenty feet short
of the length that the county commis
sioners paid R. Z. Drake ef the Standard
P.ridge company, for.
In this connection I want to state that
the bridge over the Elkhorn near Waterloo,
1O0 feet longer than the Elk City brldre,
cost 14.600.
The Standard Bridge company built
the Elk City bridge and many
other bridges at that time. When Henry
E. Ostrom went off the county board In
1902 he went into the employ of the Stan
dard Bridge company, which bad enjoyed
these fat contracts. In The Bee of October
S, 19"3. this paragraph appears:
"Mr. Ostrom's work on boards of equal!
cation, as county commissioner, and his
employment during the last session of the
legislature as a lobbyist for the bridge
company that has created so much scandal
in this slate, leaves him open to attack
and would make bis election very diffi

Why Beal Should Be Nominated.
OMAHA, Sept. I8.-T0 the Editor of The
Boe: Taxation without representation has
never been very popular in this country.
Our forefathers fought against this and wc
republicans of Douglas county should cer
tainly not attempt to force it down the
political throats of the people of 8011th
Omaha. Without representation on the re
publican ticket South Omaha has as llttla
Interest In the success of that ticket aa
Council Bluffs.
If the old convention system were In
vogue, Instead of the new primary law.
South Omaha could demand In open con
vention at least one place on the republican
ticket, and this demand would be readily
granted. . In the history of republican
triumphs In Douglas county every winning
ticket has had a representative from South
Omaha. In the coming primary election
South Omaha has asked that Its place on
the ticket be given to Herman Beal as
county surveyor. The republicans of Omaha
will do the wise thing If they vote for Mr.
Beal at the primaries and grant the request
of South Omaha for representation on the
South Omaha had several candidates on
the political horizon during the first few
weeks of the primary campaign. Chief
Brlggs of the police force, a very efficient
officer, by the way, had his plans all laid
for the nomination of sheriff. G. H. Brewer,
the well known undertaker and one of the
most popular men In South Omaha, had a
coronerlal bee In his bonnet. Both of these
men could have made a strong fight for the
respective offices. But In accordance with
the unwritten law of republican success of
one county office to South Omaha, they
withdrew In favor of Herman Beal.
Herman Beal has for twelve years been
city engineer of South Omaha. When a
stalwart republican as Mr. Beal Is can go
through the changing complexion of South
Omaha politics and hold his position for
twelve years, it certainly shows that he Is
a man among men. Mr. Beal is an engineer
of more than local reputation. For nearly
twelve years Mr. Beal was constructing en
gineer for the Burlington system, and his
letters, testimonials and offers of positions
from this system are certainly exceedingly
flattering. W. J. JOHNSTON.

Rave universal satisfaction by his In
terpretation of the lsw and his treatment
of litigants. He was not controlled In any
way by any person or corporation but was
rontented only by his desire to do Justice
to all. Judge Dickinson in all his talks
to the republican clubs in and about our
city, has snld that If elected to the office
of county Judge, he will account to all per
sons, entitled to trust funds In his hands,
of the county court, for all Interest accumu
lated on same, and will be perfectly satis-
fled with the salary of the office, a matter
you have been contending for, for years,
and which Is conceded by nil to be the
only honest way to care for the money
trusts and Interests of the widows and
orphans. None of us can tell how soon
our estates may be put Into the hands
of the probate county Judge and I know of
no office or trust more sacred than the
one that Is empowered to handle the line
blood of our dead ones left to the cold
charities of an unfriendly world. Judge
Dickinson has been tried nnd not found
wanting. No one has ever accused him
of betraying any public trust. His In
tegrity of character and his ability as on
honest Judge has never been questioned.
I trust those who may exercise their right
tomorrow to the polls will bear his name
and the office he seeks In mind, when they
come to cast their votes.
