Hamilton, the plain tiff. The temporary order was issued by Judge Sears, but the final hearing was before Judge Day. ( t ,. For an hour attorneys battled over the question of submitting the secret ballots to the eyes of the court. After undergoing an exhaustive examination by Attorney Sullivan for the plaintiff, C. H. Friday of Laramie, Wyo gen eral chairman of the committee of adjustment, admitted that he - was present at the first count of the bal lots at New York, that he had ex pressed the ballots from New York to Laramie and Drougni inem to Omaha in a satchel. He admitted that the package was opened at the Carleton hotel and the ballots were again counted , Friday night, , but he denied knowledge of their -whereabouts.' ' ' ' : , :-V;".

' Attorney Sullivan -had- threatened to .call General .Manager Jeffers. of the Union Pacific to the witness stand to attack statements of Mr. Friday unless the ballots were admitted tor the court count.

" 4 1 Affidavits ,on Count. , Three affidavits of those present in the Bristol hotel at New York when the ballots were counted, submitted in court Saturday when the case., was called, caused Attorney Sullivan to declare that if it was shown that the required two-thirds of the con ductors voted m favor of the strike he was willing to ask his case dis missed.. His action at the afternoon session carried out his promises. The chief contention of Conductor Hamilton in his application asking the Union Pacific conductors restrained from striking was that the twp-thirds majority had not been secured. " C. H. Friday , and C. S. Hoffman, chairman of the . local committee on adjustment, were not 'in court at 3 o'clock. Attorneys for the 'complain ing conductor insisted that the court demand their presence and a hurry-up call was sent tor them., Mr. rndays testimony told of several conferences with General Manager Jeffers of the Union Pacific and his steadfast re fusal to divulge the vote of Union Pa cific conductors on the strike situa tion.". He admitted informing Mr. Jeffers that the vote of the conductors in the Western association was 85 per cnt in favor of the strike.
