Oil AHA LITTLE CONCERNED
Switchmen's Strike Now Confined to
Union of North America. t
IS NOT BkoAESES SERIOUS HEBE
ft. Paal and Bllllntfs Conmectlona Are
Made Close to Schedule Mohler
In Conference with Cm
In the face of a serious blockade In the
movement of freight throughout the north
west there seems to be no trouble of any
moment among the switchmen employed
in Omaha. The strike of the switchmen
In St. Paul and Minneapolis has narrowed
Itself down to a fight made by the Switch
men's Union of North America and does
not involve the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen to which the lucal switch throw
"There are very few members of the
switchmen's union in Omaha," said A. J.
Donahue, assistant yardniaster of the Mis
souri faclflo railroad. "There is such
a small number represented here that in
oase they should all go out there would
be no apparent effect as most of the local
switchmen belong to the Brotherhood of
"The Switchmen's Union of North Amer
ica and the Brotherhood of Railway Train
men are two distinct organisations; they
are not affiliated In any way and do not
. work in concord. The etrlka of the switch
men need not necessarily Involve the train
men even though they are engaged in the
, same line of work."-
In the local yards the Omaha road Is
perhaps most affected by the strike of the
switchmen In fH. Paul and Minneapolis.
This road has positively refused anything
but "dead freight" for the northern points,
drawing the line on perishable goods that
would suffer by delay in traffic. The Rock
Island is the only road running into Omaha
that has a contract with the Switchmen's
union and this road has no direct com'
muhlcation with the center of trouble.
Railroad managers In Omaha do not re
gard the strike a serious as was first
reported. Chicago and northwestern pas
senger trains from St Faul during the
day were running closs to schedule time
and made connection in Omaha with trains
for Kansas City and the west. Burlington
trams westbound have had no trouble
through Hillings, Mont., where most of
the switchmen are out because the trains
are through trains and require no switch
ing. Other roads running into St. Paul and
Omaha have found It advisable to unload
cargoes at points outside the city limits,
where wagons have been kept In waiting.
This means an addltnonal charge for
hauling but does not Interfere with de
livery of goods to any considerable extent
A. L. Mohler of Omaha, viae president of
the Union Pacific railroad, who la a mem
ber of the advisory committee of the west
ern railroad managers, Is expected to
reach his office Saturday. He has at
tended the conferences at St. Paul with
Commissioner of Labor Nelll and Charles
P. Knapp of the Interstate Commeroe com
Charles Bogus, general chairman of the
Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen for
the Union Paclflo railroad, who has been
in Omaha since the strike was declared In
St Paul, has gone to North Platte. A. I
Konold, member of the executive commit
tee of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, representing the men employed
by the Union Paclflo railroad, has gone to
Laramie, Wyo. ; This is an lndloation that
affairs In Omaha are quiet so far as the
strike, trouble is concerned.

bullet into his victim and fled, leaving no
clue as to his whereabouts.
As a result of the shooting R. J. Counts

Counts is night ' telegraph operator em

Shortly after S a. m. he was returning

out from the shadow of a building and
commanded Counts to hold up his hands.
The operator was then compelled at the
point of a revolver to surrender his valua

warned not to cry for help. He did so,

LARGE AMOUNT ASKED '
BY HORBACHS OF SULLIVAN
Eleven Canses ( Aetion Alleged by
Plaintiffs In Salt Filed In
Judgment against Eugene J. Sullivan Is
demanded on eleven counts by plaintiffs In
a suit against him In district court The
amount sought Is 177,371.
The plaintiff are Mrs. Sarah Horbach,
Mrs. Mary F. Uourke and Paul W. Hv
bach,, respectively the widow, daughter aXi
son of the lare John A. Horbach. The liti
gation is a cross-claim on the part of the
Horbachs. Some time ago they filed suits
against Sullivan, who managed the eBtate
of John A. Horbach for several years fol
lowing Horbach's. death. Then Sullivan
filed an Independent suit against these
three, who are thus the original plaintiffs
in the litigation.
Mismanagement of property, retention of
funds, carelessness and appropriating money
to his own use are some of the charges
which the Horbachs make. The charges
differ in number, though not In kind, from
those preferred In former suits.
The sum of (23,371 is asked on the first v
