ST. PAUL, Dec. 4 A qusrrel between
Vioe President Whitney of the Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen and President
Hawley of the Switchmen's union is the
latest element Injeoted into the strike.
Whitney, who hurried to Duluh from
Buffalo in response to a demand from- the
switchmen who "are members of the
Brotherhood, declares the ewltchmen were
not given an opportunity to vote on the
strike In accordance with section 211 of
their constitution. Hawley retort that the
men were given the opportunity and the
vote was taken. Whitney also says 75 per
cent of the switchmen at the head of the
lakes are members of the Brotherhood and
will not abide by the order and to this
Hawley replied that Only three of the
Brotherhood have returned to work.
Whitney says the. Switchmen's Union ot
North America, In calling the strike, were
"unfair to the Brotherhood, unfair with
their own members and unfair with the
To this last statement President Hawley
"Whitney's statement is a lame and con
temptible excuse for the men that he wants
to go back as scabs."
Two hundred strike breakers arrived here
today from Cleveland and Cincinnati. No
more switchmen would be brought in. It
was authoritatively stated.
Dad Seems Remote.
With both sides professing confidence as
to the outcome the fourth day of the strike
began with no apparent progress made to
ward a settlement of the controversy.
While the switchmen still claim to have
the situation In hand the railroads have
born making headway by their steady Im
portation of new men to take the places
ot the strikers and today they promise to
handle more freight than at any Urn since
the strike began.
They claim that as soon as all ef the
new men now on their way arrive and ba-
oome familiar with the yards -normal con
ditions will be established. ,
Reports fiom Duluth say that the strike
at the head of the lakes, is practically
broke, but in the Twin Cities the railroads
have not been able to handle any volume
Discussion among various business or
ganisations of the Twin Cities yesterday is
expeoted to result in some definite move
ment to bring the railroads and switchmen
together for a conference today. The rail
road officials say, however,that they will
make no concessions and If the swltoumen

Omaha Roads Express Confidence In
Ability o Handle Traffic.
Following reports from St. Paul that the
backbone of the switchmen's strike has
been broken, railroads having terminals in
Omaha have announced that freight of all
kinds will be received for shipment to the
north and northwest. During the last four
days local offices have refused positively
to receive perishable goods of any kind.
"We are prepared to handle all kinds ef
freight," said Lyman Sholes, division
freight and passenger agent for the Chi
cago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha rail
road. "Last night we sent a special train
of fresh meats from South Omaha to north
ern points, Including St. Paul, Minneapolis
and Dululh and we anticipate no trouble
Trains running into the Union and Bur
lington stations during the day were gen
erally on time. No trouble was experienced
by the Burlington route at Billings. Mont.,
where most of the switchmen left their
work. The delays in trains during the day
were caused mostly by the storm In the
Union Pacific train No. , the Portland
train, due at 8:46 a. m., did not arrive un
til 6 o'clock in the afternoon. This train
alone felt the effects of the strike in the
northwest and was also delayed enroute
by the storm. , .
Omaha officials have been advised of the
demands of the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen on the lines taat of Chicago,
asklrg for a raise of 10 per cent In w:tgcs.
They request an answer from railroad
managers by December 11. The hurried
trip east of Judge Lovelt, president of
the Hurrirnan system, who was scheduled
to reach Omaha during the day, may have
a bearing on this case. x ,
