Representatives 'of Koads and
Brotherhoods Fail to Beach
Agreement on Adamson
SESSION QUICKLY ENDED
Unionists Oppose Plan of Set-
tlement Along Lines of
" ' Switchmen Award. .
MEETING IN NEW YORK CITY
New York, Dec. 28. Resumption
of conferences here today between
representatives of the railroads and
the employes brotherhoods was
quickly terminated. The conferees
had been in session less than two
hours when an adjournment was
taken and no announcement was made
as to whether future 'meetings would
be held..' The brotherhood chiefs
. were obviously disturbed when the
session ' ended. Neither side would
be quoted as to what had taken place.
It was learned, however, that the
roads suggested that the dispute be
tween them over the application of
the Adamson law, if upheld by the
supreme court, be settled on the basis
of the switchmen's award which, the
railroad managers held, gave the
switchmen on the roads involved nine
' hours pay for eight hours of work.
Representatives of the brother
hoods, it was asserted, declined to ac
cept a settlement on such a' basis.
They are declared to have pointed in
sistently to the Adamson act and to
have demanded that an agreement be
reached under the act. Such a settle
ment they held would grant them
ten hours n v for eight hours of work.
It was, uV lerstood that during the
conference today, the brotherhoods
suggested the creation of a federal
commission representing both sides,
which would consider and settle ar
bitrarily all future disputes regardless
of whether the Adamson act was de
clared constitutional. The proposal
was not given consideration, however,
it was stated in view of the failure
of the conferees to agree on how the
act ought to be worked out.
The railroad managers will continue
their individual conferences here, it
was stated. The plans of the brother
hoods were not announced.

Greeted by a Band.
AUTO PARTIES PLANNED
Mayor Dahlman appointed Com

the Elks will co-operate.
The Fourth Nebraska regiment left

with the thought that Omaha ap
preciates their services, even if they
did not get into actual battles.

"We were not able to give the sol
diers the send-off they deserved, -o
it is up to us to make their home
coming a genuine welcome," said
Mayor Dahlman at a meeting of the

Trade Unions and
Societies Wishing ,
Success for Wilson
The Hague, Dec. 28. (Via Lon
don, Dec. 28. Floods of cablegrams
are being sent to President Wilson by
trade unions, social welfare societies,
religious bodies of all denominations
and Other organizations, wishing him
success in what they regard as his ef
forts I to bring about peace. The
Dutch" socialist party sent the follow
ing message to the president today:
'The Dutch socialist party supports
in the strongest way your initiative
in favor of peace and appeals to the
belligerent powers to accept your
proposal" ' ,
The newspapers, in voluminous ar
ticles, regard the situation rather
hopefully, with the exception of the
anti-German Telegraf, which favors
a war to a finish and sneers at Ger
many's answer, using the words "If
it can be called an answer." The
Telegraaf says the central powers
are grateful to President Wilson.
New Wealth Acts
As Dynamo Within
George A, Roberts
Because his "war brides" have been
so good to him as to have presented
him with about a half million dollars
is not reason enough for George A.
Roberts, Omaha grain v man, to sit
back and rest. Instead, he has
bought, for more than $100,000, the
South Side grain elevator of the Up
dike Elevator company.
"I am new in the elevator business,
but I have faith in Omaha's future,"
said Mr. Roberts, discussing his new
venture. "I believe this city is com
ing to the front rapidly and can sup
port not only one, but many more
Mr. Roberts will get possession of
his new purchase just as soon as the
Updike concern can use its new
1,500,000-bushel elevator now being
built in Council Bluffs.
Cigars from California -Likely
to Be Explosive
Los Angeles, Cal., Dec. 28. Seven
teen cigar "bombs" of twenty-five,
mailed on a train in California to ad
dresses in Iowa, Nebraska and other
middle western states and along the
Pacific coast, have yet to be accounted
for, according to postoffice inspectors
The "bombs" were mailed Decem
ber 22. One of them was received
by a man in Brawley, Cal., and in an
attempt to smoke the cigar he was
severely injured about the face. Seven
other of the "bombs" have been
traced to their destinations. Post
masters in various towns and cities
throughout the country have been
asked to watch for the cigar packages.

Upon hearing the verdict, all of the
defendants found guilty said that they
would ask for a new trial, and if that

One of the dramatic incidents of
the case occurred at the reading of
the verdicts, when Mrs. A. Hastings,
wife of Al Hastings, Silver Creek,
Neb., burst into tears upon hearing
the conviction of her husband. One
of her two small boys cried: "You
shan't take my papa; I won't let you."
Several other of the defendants' wives
burst into tears.
Harks Back to 1914.
In 1914 the federal grand jury in

a hand in the selling of phantom and
imaginary wild horses which the
United States Live Stock company

The case was one of the costliest

Black Hills Forest Roads
To Be Officially Logged
Deadwood, S. D., Dec. 28. Auto
mobile roads within the Black Hills
forest will be logged by the forest
officers for the benefit of automobile
tourists, according to a statement
issued by the office of the forest su
perintendent. It is planned to have this work
completed before the 1917 tourist
season opens. The data is to be
gathered in such form as to be in
convenient shape for use of travelers
in the Hills region. Particular ef
fort will be given to roads that will
be of interest to the tourist who
comes from a distance. Routes of
travel will be laid out so that tourists
may take the most convenient method
in traveling through the forest and
still see the most important places of
These roads logs will cover all in
formation as to roads, bridges, hills,
stopping places, and other points of
convenience, the statement says.
Order Looking to Relieving the
Freight Congestion of Roads
Ready to Be Issued.
RAILROAD MEN AT HEARING
Washington, Dec. 28. Representa
tives of railroads throughout the
country today appeared before the In
terstate Commerce commission to
show cause why the' . commission
should not take into its own hands
the car shortage situation heretofore
dealt with by the roads themselves
and issue drastic ordefs to relieve
congestion. f ; i

apparently is prepared to issue, unless
the roads show cause why it should
not, would require the roads to re
turn to connecting lines all foreign
cars on' their tracks after unloading.
Heretofore the railroads have en
deavored to cope with the situation
by requiring roads in the east, where
the congestion is greater, to return
to connecting lines monthly a larger
number of foreign cars than received.
This requirement is said to have
been largely disregarded by certain
eastern roads with resultant upset of
the relief plans.
While congestion of traffic is said
to be somewhat less at present than
recently, the improvement in condi
tions apparently has not been as rapid
as the commission expected it
One of the phases of today's hear
ing was the claim advanced by cer
tain railroad interests that the com
mission apparently was without
authority to issue such an order as
cited in today's summons.
George Hodges, secretary of the
car service committee created by the
American Railway association, the
first witness, said that it had been
agreed that the committee should have
all the authority of the railroad ex
ecutives over car. distribution. The
Grand Trunk, he said, had refused to
be bound by the rules, which had im
posed an increase in the per diem
rate for rental. He said thirty-seven
inspectors were out checking up the
Grocers Fear Ink
Flavor if Storage
Eggs Are Stamped
New York, Dec. 28. Danger of an
ink flavor in coffee settled by egg
shells was advanced as one reason
against stamping "cold, storage" on
eggs in argument before the supreme
court, on application of John J. Dil
lon, state commissioner of foods and
markets, for an injunction against
sellinK eggs not so marked. An
other argument was that the individ
uality of eggs as to shape made the
labeling of each one impracticable.
The arguments were presented by
grocerymen's counsel. A represen
tative of the state attorney general's
office argued in support of the appli
cation that the failure of some stores
to apprise their customers of the sort
of eggs they were buying made the
stamp order necessary. The court
reserved a decision.
Bryan the Speaker at the
Lexington, Ky Dec. 28. The na

noon had William J. Bryan as the

pion of national prohibition.
Prior to Mr. Bryan's address Mayor
James C. Rogers delivered an address
of welcome on behalf of.the city and

The federal government has ap

which $8,500,000 is apportioned to the

before the federal money is available
for road building in any state, that
state must appropriate an amount of
money for roads, equal to the amount
of federal money it seeks to use.
Thus if Nebraska hopes to get $1,500,

Asked to Take Part
In Prohibition War
Pierre, S. D., 28. One of the most
vital issues to come before the law
makers of South Dakota is a pro
posed law which will put into force
the prohibition amendment to the
state constitution, adopted by the
voters in the November election. It
is necessary that the legislature pass
an act placing a penalty upon the vio
lation of the prohibition measure be
fore the law becomes operative. Re
ports indicate a general demand
throughout the state that the law be
made as stringent as possible and
that heavy penalties be placed upon
the violation of the prohibition pro
vision. Some of the most ardent
prohibition supporters are pressing
for a clause which will prohibit the
importation of liquor into the state
for home consumption.
Another important measure, which
probably will be considered, is legisla
tion which would curb the activities
of the. so-called I. W. W. bands that
have caused riots throughout the
state, virtually seizing trains and
menacing towns in the agricultural
districts in the harvest season.
Suffrage will come up for consid
eration, it is believed. The women
of the state undaunted by their de
feat in the former elections, will ask
for a re-submission of the suffrage
amendment to the voters in the next
general election to be held in 1918.
At a recent meeting of the South Da
kota Universal Suffrage league the
women passed a resolution calling
for a new vote and an active cam
paign is being waged throughout the
state for its consideration.

back today from their search they
took tip the hunt for another missing
vessel, the steamer Ozama of the
Clyde line, bound from Portland, Mel,
for New York, without cargo. Since
leaving Portland, December 1, the
steamer had not been reported and
Clyde line officials sought the assis

Delto Was Chartered
To the Belligerents
Berlin, Dec. 28. (Via London, Dec.
28.) The reply of the German gov
ernment to another of the American
inquiries in regard to steamships sunk
by submarines, in this instance relat
ing to the destruction of the Nor
wegian steamship Delto with Amer
icans in the crew, asserts that the
steamship was chartered for trans
port purposes to a belligerent gov
ernment and hence its destruction
This reply which has been delivered
to the American embassy says that
so far as was possible the safety of
the crew was provided for. The men
were given half an hour in which to
enter the boats. The weather was
clear and the distance to the shore
was not excessive.
The settlement of the Marina case,
which hinges on the question
whether the steamship was a govern
ment transport, is being delayed pend
ing receipt of further advices from
Washington. The American govern
ment has transmitted for information
two statements from the British gov
ernment claiming that the vessel was
engaged in carrying horses as part of
its cargo on east-bound voyages, but
was under no engagement for west
bound trips and therefore could not
be regarded as a transport. Germany
is waiting to learn what interpretation
the American government gives these
statements. There has been no fur

Washington, Dec. 28. The offi

dent Wilson's peace note was re

was known It was unaccompanied by
any other communication and was
said to be substantially the same as
the unofficial text received Tuesday
from Berlin. . -
The official text, which differs some
in phraseology from the unofficial,
"The imperial government has ac

spirit, which is apparent in the com
munication of the president, the noble
initiative of the president looking to ,
the creation of bases for the founda

which lies next to his heart and leaves
the choicest way open.

pears to the imperial government as
the most suitable way of arriving, at .
the desired result. The impeifial
government I has the honor, there- ,
fore, in the atnse of its declaration of ;
December 12, which offered the hand
for peace negotiations to propose ,
speedy assembly on neutral ground
of delegates of the warring states. ,
"It is also the view of the imperial ,
government that the great work for
