OMAHA, Oct. l-Mr. Charles Anderson.
Omaha. Neb.:, pear Sir Inasmuch as we
consider that the demand of the Typo
graphical union for an eight-hour day are
unreasonable arid cannot be granted with
out sacrificing our business, we have de
termined commencing with tomorrow morn
ing to run our shop a an open shop, em
ploying men without anv reference to their
affiliation with the Typographical union.
I nless you wish to remain at work under
these conditions we think It Is most satis
factory to all parties that your employ
ment should cease with the expiration of
the contract with the Typographical union
tonight. Ymin truly,

The controversy In Omaha is part of a
Huitional struggle . brought on by the de
mand of the Typographical union for an
e;;ht-hour day for job printers, starting
January J. In reply the National Typoth
e:ae declared It wouM not grant the elght-'-our
day, but, on the other hand, would re
.ie to make contracts with the union in
the future and conduct business on the
"open shop" plan. In many other dtles
fct:i!:es are on.
Aside from the four offices where the men
were paid off and did not return, the usual
onion forces were at work Friday morn-na-!

Attorney W. J. Crmnell has been employed
by the union. Leading members of tho
organisation say they have evidence show

which was organised to combat union labor,
has employed various means to drive cer

object of crushing the Typographical union.
These charges Include, alleged threats to

President K 8. Fieher of Omaha Tyro
graphical anion No. 1 Friday gave this
statement to the newspapers:
Our sympathy la with the employing
printers because recently thev have not
be'n In a poeition to "run their own hni
neas." In the paet the Typographical union
and the employing printers hare alwavs
been able to reach a basis of settlement of
all their differences. In the negotiations
for the elrM-hour Aav w hav fr...tA th.t
many employing printers under duress have !
been forced to take a position In antarn- j
nlsm to the union and against their ewn
good business Judgment. This "unarnert- I
can" system of boycott has b-n conducted 1
by the executive committee of the Business
Men's association, which la composed
largely of Jobbers and men not engaged In
retail business. If this fight Is forced onfo
the Typographical union the business men
of Omaha will have an opportunity to show
whether their practical sympathy is with
the lobbing Interests or with men who earn
wagea and spend their money for the neces
sities of life.
There are well known business men In
Omaha who are ready to go Into court and
swear that they have been forced Into the I
Business Men s association by duress. We j
are not seeking a conflict with those with
whom we have been spending money, but ;
will be compelled to fight baok If forced J
Into a comer.
To avoid trouble and for the prosecution
of damage suits we have retained -W.-J.
Connell as the attorney of the Typograph
ical union. His services are free to em
ploying printers who are threatened with ,
aoyoott by the committee of the Business '
Men's association or Individuals or firms.
There are aurprises In store for some em I
nently respectable people if they continue I
to force the issue, we know from evidence '
and facts In hand that the business men i
of Omaha, through the manipulation of
their chosen representatives, are responsl- I
ble for the conflict between the employing
and Journeymen printers.
The argresslve work of the executive com- !
mltte of the Business Men's association I
has affected members of the employing j
printers association In different waya. The
employer, who is Inclined to play to the
grandstand, hoping to make himself solid i
with business men. has talked "fight" long ;
and loud whenever or wherever he thought .
he could Impress a customer present or i
prospective with the Idea that he Is a
"union hater." Other employers, who
have well organised offloea and are good
managers and business men. and want to
keep their present working organisation,
have many of them frankly said, that they
were ready to meet the union half way.
If It was not for fear of an 'Tnamerlcau
boycott by members of the Business Men's
Knowing the real power "behind the
throne" the Typographical union has done
everything poMUbie to help the employing
printers out of their difficulty. The union
and Typothete had a three years contract,
which expired today, but with a provision
that It should continue In force thirty days
after October , HKK. pending negotiations
for a new contract. The Typographical
union has carried out every provision of tho
contract, as it always does whenever It
makes a contract. The Typographical
union Is not an anarchistic organisation,
but Its membership is made up from among
the best clisa of our citizens
It was a surprise to the officers of the
union this morning to learn that four of
the union offices working under this con
tract paid off their men Thursday night
and either discharged them or locked them
out this morning.
