FRANCHISE NOT .EXCLUSIVE
Judge Wheeler Fuieieo Injunction Secured
by Nebraska Telephone Oompanj.
DEFEATED PARTY IS LIKELY TO APPEAL
Cawrt Holds that Palo Line tr
l.de,e.e. Cow..., Doe. let '
laterfere with ha Older
Judge Wheeler la the district court yes
terday handed down a decision In which
he hold that tho franchise of the Nebraska
Telephone company In Council Bluffs wss
not exclusive. Tho decision wss In the suit
brought by tho Nebraska Telephone com
pany to enjoin the Council Bluffs Independ
ent Telephone company from paralleling
Its pole line on South Seventh street. The
temporary Injunction asked for by the Ne
braska company was denied and the tem
porary restraining order Issued at the time
the suit was filed was dissolved.
The court did not hand down any written
opinion, but msde a few brief comments
on the questions Involved. He held that
the franchise of the Nebraska Telephone
company did not give It tho exclusive right
to the streets of the city and that It wss
entitled only to such use of the streets as
It has already appropriated or what may
be necessary In tho future In connection
with work already done. Further, the court
held that under the existing modern meth
ods of construction tho setting of poles
by ths Independent company on South
Seventh street would not Interfere with
the pole lino of tho Nebraska company,
which now carries ono cable and has room
for another without placing cross arms.
The Nebraska company placed Its poles
at what It believed to be the proper dis
tance from tho property line and the Inde
pendent company erected Its poles opposite
those of tho former company two feet
further out, asserting It was tho line given
It by tho city engineer. The Nebraska
company at once brought suit, asserting
that the poles of tho Independent company,
with their cross arms, would Interfere with
their line. On behalf of the Nebrsska com
pany It was contended that the Independent
company could Just as welt have set Its
poles on the opposite side of tho street.
It Is understood to be the Intention of the
Independent company to extend its South
Seventh street line to connect with ths
Independent company In South Omaha.
Representatives of the Independent com
pany stated after tho decision was handed
down that the oompany expected to resume
work on its Seventh street line at once,
but Attorney Wadsworth for the Nebraska
company stated tho case probably would
be taken to the supremo court and that a
supersedeas would bo asked for.

Commercial Clan will Make Effort to
The executive committee of the Commer
clsl club took a trip yesterday afternoon
to Inspect the condition of lower Broad
way end Avenues ft and C west of the
Illinois Central tracks. The committee ar
rived at the conclusion that the strip be
tween the paving on Broadway should be
marsdamlxed from Thirteenth street to
the approach to" the street railway com
The committee realised that the city and
the abutting property owners are unable
to bear the expense of the work, and It was
decided to make an effort to raise the
money by popular subscription. The com
mittee does not believe that sufficient
money could be rained at one time for Im
proving the entire thoroughfare from Thir
teenth street to the bridge spprosch, but
Is of the opinion that It could be accom
plished In a few years by persistent ef
fort. In connection with the Improvement of
Broadway, which Is naturally the main
thoroughfare between this city end Omaha,
the committee Is of the opinion that aid
could be secured from across the river,
especially from those firms whose wagons
make the trip between the two cities dally,
or at least two or three times a week.
After Inspecting Avenues B and C, the
committee will urge the city authorities
to keep in constant use on these dirt
thoroughfares the King road drag, as It
believe that Its use will keep these roads
In passable condition uider all conditions
of weather. Just before the recent rain
both avenues had been placed In first-class
condition by the use of the King road
drag, but travel on them during and since
the rain has cut them up aguin.

The Board of Supervisor of Adams

To The Public:
In Tlew of the fact that a gtrtke is threatened by h
Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway
Employes of America, and realizing that the public might be
erlously Inconvenienced by such strike, we deem It proper
to make a plain statement of facts In regard to the ques
On April 26, 1906, a committee from the Local Union
of Street Railway Employes waited upon the Board of
Directors of this company and presented a demand for recog
nition of the union, and an agreement which It desired the
company to execute. This agreement stipulated that the
company In dealing with Its employes must do so through
the union and submit to arbitration all matters upon which
the company and the union failed to agree.
The Board of Directors unanimously decided that they
could not accede to this demand for the following reasons:
Less than one-half of the total number of conductors
and tnotormen employed by this oompany at the present time
are members of the union.
A majority of our oldest and most faithful employes
do not belong to the union and do not wish to join It, pre
ferring to reserve the right to decide for themselves such
questions as to whether they shall work or not.
We feel that In Justice to such men now in our employ
who do not believe In unionism -as It exists at present, and
to those who may enter our employ in the future, it is our
duty to maintain an "open shop" and insure to every man
the right to work whether he belongs to a union or not.
To recognite the anion and enter into an agreement
to deal with on employes through IT would be to dis
criminate against all employes not belonging to a union
and, in the words of President Roosevelt, we "can no more
recognize the fact that a man does not belong to a union as
being for or against him, than we can recognize the fact that
he Is a Protestant or a Catholic, a Jew or a Gentile, as being
for or against him."
While at all times saying frankly to our employes that
we would prefer their not joining any union, believing that
the tendency of the union is to stir up strife and discord,
yet at no time have we discriminated against any union
If we should sign the agreement which the union has
presented and which stipulates that all differences shall be
submitted to arbitration, and the union should then ask us
to employ none but members of the union, we should -be
compelled to submit that question to arbitration, and it is
not our purpose to make our right to employ non-union
men a subject for arbitration.
Every employe ot this company who has a' grievance,'
whether he belongs to a union or not, has at all times the
right of appeal to the President and the Board of Directors,
And if the grievance is found to be well founded, it will be
promptly corrected. This has always been the policy of the
We have for years paid, and are now paying the highest
wages paid for the same class of service in any city in the
United Str.tea similarly situated.
It has been demonstrated that old and experienced em-.
ployes are more valuable to the company than raw recruits,
and we have for years past paid a scale of wages by which
we have recognlied this superior ability of experienced
men, and our new scale emphasizes that recognition.
The relations between us and our employes have al
ways been mutually satisfactory and agreeable. We deal
with them and they wiih us directly, and It is not our pur
pose to abandon this method after It has proved mutually
