Lincoln, May 22. I Special.) De-
tween 60 Oand 700 common laborers,
employed on new buildings valued at
$i,XJJ,(iuo, under construction m Lin
coln and twenty-two different pav
ing contracts, were called out on a
strike today by union leaders as a re
sult of the refusal of the contractors
to grant a wage increase.
Only two contractors in Lincoln
engaged in the construction of the
larger buildings escaped.
The workmen on the new Terminal
building here were called out early
thi forenoon and picket were placed
around the building. The atriker car
ried banner inscribed: "This com
pany is unfair. Do not be a scab."
f'rarlically all of the police force
was stationed at the Terminal build
ing, but no violence was attempted.
The Bessey building, the Chemistry
ball, the horse bam at the state farm,
and several expensive flats in Lincoln
under construction are likely to be
affected by the strike.
The union men this noon refused an
offer for arbitration which was
brought in by their representatives,
but a meeting was called later.
