MAY BE NO SUNDAY SHAVES
Journeymen Barben Agitating the Closing
of Shops on that Day.
ALTERNATIVE EARLY HOUR SATURDAY
Bosses larllaed to luslat on Kreplug

The closing of the saloons on Sunday
and the movement for the prohibition of
Sunday funerals Is likely, it Is said, to
be followed by the closing of barber shops
In Council Bluffs on the Sabbath. The
Sunday closing movement among the ton
eorlal artists. It Is said, will be the cul
mination of the present agitation for
closing week nights, except Saturdays,
at 7 o'clock Instead of at 8 o'clock.
The Journeymen barbers are seeking to
have the boss barbers consent to close
their shops at 7 o'clock in the evening at
least during the summer months, but the
bosses do not appear to favor the prop
osition. A canVass made by a committee
of four, composed of two boss barbers
and a like number of journeymen barbers.
showed that while a majority of the non
union shops were In favor of the proposi
tion, almost all of the union shops were
opposed to It. The canvass showed ten
shops in favor of the proposition and fif
teen against It.
Falling to obtain the concession of 7
o'clock closing on week nights, It Is said
the Journeymen will Insist on Sunday
closing. If they cannot obtain this by
peaceful methods. It is stated, they will
Invoke the aid of the courts with a view
to having the state Sunday closing law
On the other hand the bosses Insist
there shall be no change for the present,
at least In the hour schedule, and that
their shops shall remain open on Sundays
as heretofore. The. bosses take the stand
that under the agreement entered into
three years ago, when the Sunday closing
ipiestion was agitated, the existing sched
ule was to remain In force until the
agreement expired, which they any will
not be before the latter part of August.
The Journeymen contend, however, that
this agreement entered Into three years
ago will expire the early part of next
Agreement or no agreement, the Jour
neymen declare that they will either se
cure the closing at 7 o'clock week nights
or else the shops will not open on Sun
clays. A Journeyman barber In one of
the leading shops of the city. said yester
day in discussing the matter: "We are
not looking for trouble between the Jour
neymen and the bosses, but much prefer
to settle our differences peacefully. The
bosses are mistaken when they say the
agreement under which we are at present
working does not expire until the latter
part of August next. As we understand
It this agreement expires early next
month. There is no absolute necessity
for a man being shaved on Sunday, tic
can Just as well get his chin gcraped
Saturday and allow us to enjoy at least
one day of rest In the week. It is claimed
the cloaiug. f.. barber, shops en Sundays
would prove an lnconvenlenccV-fqr travel
ing men who might be unable to reach
the city Saturday nights until after the
shops are closed. This may be true, but
the number of traveling men who would
be affected is small when compared with
the rest of the male community. Mayor
Macrae has urged the prohibiting of fun
erals on Sundays except In cases of ab
solute necessity; let him do the same for
Deride aa Rare Meeting Wednesday.
Whether a ten days' race meet will be
held at the Union Driving park this sum
mer and whether P. B. Halght, the Par
sons (Kan.) horseman will, lease the prop
erty for five years, commencing In 1907, will
be determined next Wednesday, at which
time Mr, Halght will notify the local own
ers of the park of his final decision. Upon
Mr. Halght's decision depends to a great
extent the likelihood cf a race meet here
Richard Cunningham, the Kansas City
horseman, who, with James R. Hand of
Sioux City, la anxious to hold a race meet
at the park this summer, -was in the city
yesterday and looked over the grounds with
a view to determining about how much It
would cost to put the place in temporary
condition for a race meeting providing Mr.
Halght does not care to make the neces
sary improvements and repairs,
Mr. Halght was also In ' the city and
with two otkers visited the park yesterday
afternoon for the purpose of estimating
the cost of the contemplated Improvements
and repairs. These will be figured on and
a definite answer given to the owners of
the property Wednesday. Mr. Halght's
proposal, aa before stated. Is to pay $1,200
a year for the park for five years, com
mencing 1907, and he to advance the money
necessary to place the property In suitable

Band Concert at Park.
The concert by the band of tbe Thirtieth
United State infantry from Fort Crook
at Falrmount park yesterday attracted a
large crowd, but It la doubtful if as many
people visited the park as was the rase
on the preceding Sunday when Covalt's
band played. This Is believed to be due to
the fact that yesterday's attraction was
not as well advertised sa was that of the
preceding Sunday, and tire announcement
that the bund would le there waa not made
until late In the week
Several thousand peuple, however, visited
the psrk and enjoyed greatly the excellent
pi ua ran i rendered by the soldier musicians
from Fort Crook, under tlw able leadership
of Bandmaster A. llaaae.
The success of the two Sunday conceits
la most gratifying to the nttik commis
sioners and If the funds will permit of
It. other musical attractions will be at the
popular tesoit during the summer months.

was the scene of a number of disgraceful
fights, The fighting was confined to one
car and those who went there from the
other cars to ascertain the cause of the
disturbance wished they had not, as sev
eral of them were badly beaten. A num
ber of black eyes and evidences of a gen

train pulled into the local depot. Orville

to the car where the fighting was taking
place, received a severe kick In the Jaw
