CHARGE EXTRA PRICE
TO UNIONIZED SHOPS
Electrical Contractors Who
Are Paying the Scale Are
forced to Fay Bonus.
FOKOED TO BUY IN EAST
Six electrical work contractors who
are employing union electrical work
ers and payin3 the union scale during
trie present electrical workers' strike
say that wholesale houses are (lis
criminating against them in making
them payiiigher prices for ma'erial
than they ever paid before, while they
are selling it cneaper to the contrac'
,t'jrs who are not paying the union
Suits will be filed against wholesale
dealers in electrical supplies who
fuse to sell to the contractors because
they are hiring the union men.
The six contractors complaining are
the Mislevic Electric company, tiie
W. W. Houck company, the Cahill
Electrie company, the Frank Burk-
hart company and the R. Mustain
"The wholesale houses are hold'ng
us tip for as high a price as they are
asking the individual," said D. L. Ca
hill of the Cahill Electric company.
ine wholesale houses always have
list price for their materials and then
it is customary to sell materials to
a big office building or similar large
customer at 5 per cent below the
list price and to sell to the electrical
contractor at 40 per cent below the
list price. Xhe list price is just
kind of basis from which to figure.
Jnow, however, we fellows who
are going on about our business, hir
ing union men and paying the union
scale as before, are being held up for
the list price, a thing that never
happened before. At the same time
the wholesalers are still selling to the
, Dig orhce buildings at per cent be
' low list price and to the other con-
tractors at 40 per cent below list
"We are confideent this is the work
ot the Jtlectncal Contractors asso
ciation, to which those paying the
.union scale do not belong. We are
sure the orders to the electrical whole
salers come from this organization,
for one of t'.ie wholesalers told one
of our small contractors he could do
nothing for him in the way of dis
counts until he fired his union men.
"That is pretty plain talk, and we
are taking steps right now to start
action against the association, and the
Western E'ectric company in partic
ular, on the grounds that they have
a combination in restraint of trade.
Buying From the East.'
"We are going ahead with our jobs
in the meantime and buying our ma
terial from eastern cities. We are
getting it shipped in here, payingthe
freight from 1,500 to 2,000 miles, and
still getting it cheaper than the price
the local wholesalers are asking us,
while they are trying to freeze us
put. What's more, when the strike
is ail settled, .we wilt continue to buy
' our material oittside of Omaha. These
are the men who talk about boosting
Omaha and patronizing home indus
try, and then they pull stuff like this
en us when we want to'buy material
"One of our sfaiall contractors, went
into a certain wholesale electrical
ltouse here yesterday to buy some
supplies and was told, point-blank.
t hat he haJ better lay his union men
off if he wanted any further credit in
iliat place, so you see we are be
ginning to find out their game. We
are bcgiining to learn the secret
workings of their scheme. They are
overcharging uc and refusing us
credit so long as we employ union
men. It is part of the hig scheme to
beat the unions and the strike. Be
cause we are willing to pay the union
scale and keep work going in the
city, they make it as hard as they can

Timothy J. Mahoney were held Fri
day morning in the federal court
room, which was crowded with at
torneys, court officials and judges.
Federal Judges Smith, Munger and
Woodrough. presided and the most
eloquent members of the bar bore
testimony to lofty character, high
ideals and professional attainments
of Mr. Mahoney. A tremor shook
the- voices of some of the speakers as
they spoke of him.
Wo other man that 1 know, de
clared Judge Woodrough, "has added
so much dignity and strength to the
courts of .Nebraska as Mr. Mahoney.
To know him was a privilege and a
blessing and I thank God that I knew
this noble man, this Christian gen
tleman, for so many years."

Edward F. Leary, who was a mem

the trouble is due to some serious
internal condition, it quickly
clears away all trace of ecxema,
