How little do the people know of
how their business is run by a few de
partment heads. Everybody will agree
that the Postoffice department is a
business.-run for the accommodation
of the public and quick service is one
of the essential facts of that business.
But far be it from such! Only those
who are in the service can appreciate
conditions as they really are.
Omaha is known as "The Gate
way to the West," and from the Union

the north, south and east travel over

the department figured that the Union

Aggressive Action Likely.
New and aggressive action to pro
tect American shipping against Ger

result of yesterday's sinking) of three
unarmed American merchantmen with
possible loss of American lives.
Calling of congress in extra session
before April 16 loomedias the strong
est probability, although President
Wilson was understood to have other
courses under consideration.
With American ships already being
armed, the most probable step would
be an active campaign to clear sub
marines out of the shipping lanes.
There appeared to be no plan to have
the United Stales enter the war in the
sense that the European nations have
The fact that some American ships
arc on the other side of the ocean un

as large warships are ineffective
against submarines, the problem for
the government is to get small sub

against operation of German subma
rines in American waters.
No Comment Made.
There seemed to be no doubts that
steps to supplement arming of Amer

only question was whether the presi

own responsibility or wait for con

No comment was made at the

New York, March 19. With the .

raged between the railroads and their
employes for nearly a year over the
question of hours and wages, passed
into history today. .
Appealed to by the president's
mediators, to yield on the grounds of
patriotism tohe, demands of the em
ployes, the railroads just before day
break today conceded the eight-hour
basic work day and pro rata pay for
overtime, the same as that provided
by the Adamson law.
Several hours later the United
States supreme court upheld the con
stitutionality of the Adamson act anil

the supreme court legally assured to

Yielding to the appeal of President
Wilson and facing the probability of
this country's entrance into the world
war, the railroads early today granted
the demands of the four employes'
brotherhoods for a basic eight-hour
day. The telegraph wires this morn
ing are carrying throughout the.
United States messages from the
btotherhoodchiefs rescinding the or
ders for the inauguration of the great
progressive strike at 7 o'clock tonight.
The decision is regarded as a com
plete surrender to the brotherhoods,
brought about, however, after the
patriotism of the railroad managers
had been put to the test. The presi
dent's. mediators, playing in what they
considered their last trump card, were
not successful in their mission until
after more than fifty hours of anxious
conferences, all of which pointed

Secretary of the Interior Lane and
the other mediators were visibly af

railroad managers. Mr. Lane sent irrt

railroads and, turning to Elisha Lee,
their spokesman, said:
"This is a magnificent thing that
you have done for your country. It
will go down in history as one of the
greatest things you ever did."
Brotherhood Chiefs Notified.
The brotherhood chiefs, who al
ready had left the hotel where the
conferences were being held and had
retired for the night, apparently con
vinced that a settlement of the dif
ferences could not be reached, were
summoned next. Their faces showed
the relief they felt from the strain un-.
der which they had labored since
early Friday evening with the presi
dent's committee. W. G. Lee, head of
the trainmen, announced for them
that orders should go forward at once
informing all district chairmen of the
brotherhoods of the successful out
come of the conferences.
By the terms of the settlement the
combined salary list of the railroads
will be increased approximately $60,
000,000 a year, according to conserva
tive estimates. The number of work-,
men profiting by this increase will be
more than 300,000.
