Proposed Adamson Act Will
Crumble at Tirst Legal
Blast Say Attorneys.
BILL IS PATENTLY VOID
Chicago, Sept. 1. Counsel for the
vanoui railroads are said to have in
formed the president of the roads
that the Adamson bill Is patently un
constitutional as being confiscatory
and class legislation.
E. P. Ripley, president of the At
chison, Topeka & Santa Fe, said to
day that passage- of the bill would
merely postpone the strike.
Our lawyers, said Mr. Kipley, in
formally and individually have ex
pressed the opinion that the Adamson
bill, if passed, will crumble at the
first legal blast If the bill passes,
the presidents and counsel will con
fer formally as to legal procedure. It
is illogical to assume that the rail
roads will abandon their principles
merely because tney are attacked
through congress instead of directly
R. H. Aishton, president of the Chi
cago & Worth western, said the rail
roads would obey the law.
'But, he added, it seems certain
to us that the Adamson bill, if passed,
will not stand the test ot the courts,
Strike Preparations Proceed.
A statement was issued at publicity
headquarters of the railroads that pre
parations for a strike next Monday
were proceeding without regard to
prospects of congressional action.
Officials of the four railroad broth
erhoods began massing their forces
here today to direct the strike on
twenty-five roads operating out of
Chicago in the event the strike goes
into effect. :
W. B. Henrichs, superintendent of
terminals of the Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul railroad, announced today
that the Brotherhood of Railway Con
ductors on the section of that sys
tem between Chicago and the Missouri-river
had voted not to strike.
Food prices in this city, with a few
exceptions, have not been "materially
affected as a result of threatened tie
ups of the transportation facilities of
the country. Potatoes sold on the
market today at $2.25, the highest
price in many -years, and poultry was
up i cents a pound.
In a number of the lancer cities.
meetings ot otnciais nave been caned
for today to consider means of check
ing the increase in the price of food
,. Statement by Railroads.
The text of the railroads state
."The managements of the railways
are disregarding reports from Wash
ington regarding the possibility of
the strike being prevented and are
proceeding exactly as they would if
they were certain that it was going to
occur on scheduled time at 7 o'clock
on the morning of September 4.
"It will be recalled that for about
eight months the railway manage
ments have been warning the gov
ernment and the people of the United
States that the danger of a nation
wide strike was real and serious.- On
the other hand, soothing assurances
have throughout this time been given
by officers of the United States gov
ernment, and even by spokesmen of
the labor brotherhoods, dhe public
now knows the railways were right
in saying the danger was real and
serious and the spokesmen of the
government, who attempted to mini
mize the, gravity of the situation, were
wrong.- - , - .
''The leaders of the railway broth
erhoods are playing a desperate game
and, as they say now that they will
not recall their strike order until they

. j. - -w--
tVy demand, t or anybody to act
on the assumption that there will be
no strike would be .foolish and might
prove to be extremely unfortunate. .
v Reasons for Embargoes.
"The orders which the manasre-
mehts - of the railways have issued
placing embargoes on the shipments
of most kinds of freight and direct
ing that other kinds of freight shall
be accepted subject to delay are rap
idly going into effect, and shippers,
consignees and the public are begin
ning to teei tne results ot the strike
without it having actually occurred.
It should be fully recognized, how
ever, that the railroads in taking these
steps are not merely protecting their
own interests, but that in a larger
measure they are protecting the in
terests of the public, and that if they
are causing inconvenience and loss
to the public they are causing greater
proportionate loss and inconvenience
to themselves. ; ,
' "If the strike occurs it will be much
better for all. concerned for goods
which in the absence of embargoes
would -be shipped to be left in the
hands of their owners, where thev can
properly care for them, than for them
to De in ine nanas 01 ine railways,
which nrnhahlv could not nrnnexlv
re for them.
Warnings Are Repeated.
It is hoped that travelers as well
as sniDDera win act on me warmnsr
ot the railways ana not start upon
journeys which cannot be finished
before the strike order goes into ef
fect. "The railways believe that in stand
ing out for arbitration even at the
cost of a strike they have been try
ing to protect not only their own in
terests, but those of the public.
"In view of the expressions of the
press, of commercial organizations
and many thousands of industries
throughout the United States the
railways are confirmed in the belief
that the public wanted them to stand
firm and they believe they would vi
olate their duty to all concerned by
adopting any other course.
"' Appeal for Protection.

"It is clearly to the interest of the

steadily and rapidly to increase it.

Students at Omaha Uni. -T
" Work on New Building
Although lugging mortar and
wheeling brick are not in a college
curriculum, a number of students of
the University of Omaha have added
considerably to their knowledge by
doing day labor on the new $50,000
college building. . When Kiewit
Sons, general contractors, were hard
pressed for laborers they took on a
number of students for a trial and
since that time have added to the
"educated force" at every opportunity.
Work is being rushed on the build
ing, which is expected to he ready
October 1. The structure is entirely
fireproof and three stories high. .
