Humors of More Strikes
Among Omaha Workmen
Rumblings of the possibility of
more local strikes among workmen
were heard Friday night at the regu
lar meeting of the Central Labor
union at the Labor temple.
R. Geary, delegate from the elec
trical workers' union, reported that
nome of those unionists had been
locked out by boss electricians, who
had declared they would not hire
union men in the future. He asserted
mat an attorney for the Business,
Men's association, had refused to con
fer with him in the matter. '
The Central Labor union thereupon
went on record as not favoring auy
affiliated union allowing its members
to work on jobs, where members oi
any union had been locked out.
Secretary John Polian of the Cen
tral Labor body indicated that the
action might lead to strikes by other
unions, which had work to do on
jobs where the electricians consider
ed themselves aggrieved.

Chicago, March 7. (Special Tele

motion picture industry and the

public on the screen:

BRITONS ON BATTLE
LINECHEER 0. S.
News from Washington Causes
Great Enthusiasm, Epecially
Among the Canadians.
WILL NOTIFY THE GERMANS
With the British Armies in France,
April 6. (Via London, April 7.)
The news of the action of the United
States senate in voting for war with
Germany reached the far-flung west
ern battle line today and was hailed
with cheers. Nowhere io the gratifi
cation greater than along the section
of the from held by the Canadians,
with whom many thousands of Amer
icans are serving. Many Canadian
and British companies were busy to
day preparing signs to hjld up over
the trenches, telling the Cermans the
tidings from Washington. This is
the favorite plan of the Tommies to
convey all sorts of bad news to their
enemies across No Man's land.
"Ut. Rid of Your Kaiser."
German prisoners tanen today had
not heard of President Wilson's ad
dress and knew only in a vague way
of the breaking of diplomatic rela
tions in February. Some of the trench
siens which were Drenared included
a brief translation into German ol
the presidents statement that Amer
ica was entering the lists against the
German government and not against
the German people. Others included
the latest slogan:
"No peace with the Hchenzollerns;"
while stilt others read: "Get rid of
The British army as a whole has le
garded America as practically in the
war ever since the severance of rela
tions, the news of which was greeted
as the best news which had reached
the trenches for many months. It
was said then that active participation
was only a matter of time. The presi
dent's address was just reaching the
front trenche today in its entirety.
The gist of the speech had teen sent
out by wireless and also by telegraph
and telephone, but the soldiers gen
erally preferred to wait for congres
sional action betorc spreading the
news to "Fritz."
Papers Eagerly Bought.
On their way back from the front
trenches today the troops who had
been relieved eagerly bought two
days' old London papers from the
French newsboys, in order to read
the American news and the text of
the president's speech. In the little
French estaminets, cafes and villages
behind the lines there was great ex
citement among the old civilians and
the poilus on leave. One old gray
haired Frenchman, waving a bit of
writing paper, said he was sending
the good news to his son in the
trenches so as to be sure he would
not miss it.
The weight of America thrown into
the scales just at this juncture, in
what is regarded as the critical year
of the struggle, has sent a renewed
thrill of confidence all along the
front. One could' sense it everywhere
today. Visiting Canadian headquar
ters and the Canadian trenches the
correspondent was greeted every
where with outbursts of congratula
tions. One young captain, whose
mother is American, said:
"I feel like hugging everybody in
sight. Everywhere I have been today
I wanted to call out the soldiers and
ask them if they had heard the good
news. We Canadians now feel that
our American family has been re
Saxon "Six" Touring Car,
The phenomenal success of
cars selling for more money than
united. This will mean wonders for
the future relationship of Canada and
the Upitcd States. We feel more like
brothers than ever before."
There was much specuratlon along
the front as to the manner of Ameri
can participation and an almost uni
versal wish that the United States
should be represented on the fight
ing' line at the earliest possible mo
ment, if only by a brigade or division 1
Mingled with the universal desire
that the war should soon be ended
was the generally expressed hope
that it would last long enough to
give the Americans a chance at the
Apart from the purely military
view, the soldiers keenly appreciated
the moral weight of America's deci
sion. "We know how delighted we
are and cannot help feeling that the
news will equally depress the Ger
mans," was the expression, not of
one British officer, but of scores.
Some of the British officers reiterated
the view expressed to the correspon
dent when diplomatic relations were
severed that American participation
might first consist of the sending of
special detachments, such as avia
tors, machine gun sections and bat
teries of artillery.
While the Canadians are loath to
lose the services of any of the thou
sands of Americans in their ranks, it
was stated at headquarters today that
it was realized that, with an American
force in the field, many of these
splendid soldiers would desire to be
released so ; s to serve under their
own .flag. Their long training and
experience under most desperate bat
tle conditions would prove an inval
uable aid, it was conceded, to an
American expeditionary corps. Many
of these men might also be available
for return to America to help in train
ing, alt is also expected that America
will ask that a large number of its
officers be attached to the British
army for observation and experience
under the actual conditions of Euro
Toasts were drunk to America at
many a front line dugout tonight.
The British look forward eagerly to
the participation of America, thus
helping to completely outlaw German
militarism. It can be truthfully said
that the khaki-clad army faces the foe
tonight with renewed determination
to bring about a quick and decisive
