KORE MEN RETURN
TO THEIR LABORS
Carpenters and Bricklayers
Are Back at Work and
More Teams Are Haul
Carpenters and bricklayers to some
extent began working yesterday
on a tew ot the building jobs in
Omaha, but the building activities
have not yet opened generally. The
Keed injunctions which require the
employers and employed to pursue
the normal course of business as it
was before the building trades strike
have not thus far effected a settle
ment of the strike.
Because the injunctions prevent in
terference with nonunion workers by
the union strikers, nonunion men have
been enabled to go to work in many
places and it is this largely that is
making possible the resumpf n ot ac
tivities. Teamsters who have gone
to work in the material yards are
largely nonunion teamsters. Striking
electrical workers are still holding out
for their increase. Mieet metal work
en are not going back to work at
the old scale, and the mill workers
arc holding out for their 35 cents
per hour wherever there is any ne
gotiation with the employers.
Speculate On Outcome.
Much speculation is on as to
whether the injunction procedures
are going to be successful in stopping
the strike troubles in Omaha, since
the injunction is only one of the many
methods that have been tried within
the last few weeks.
When the State Council of Defense
was created some weeks ago, a com
mittee on labor was appointed with
T. P. Reynolds of Omaha at the head
of it. Soon this committee decided
to take up the strike situation in
Omaha and investigate it in an effort
to effect a settlement.
Then came a federal man, Mr. Ol
son, of the conciliation department
of the federal Department of Labor.
He investigated the situation for a
' week or ten days and then little more
was heard of him.
Suddenly it was recalled that the
state has a board of mediation and in
vestigation, specially created to handle
such difficult cases as this. The board
was called into action by Governor
Both Sides Enjoined.
No sooner had the investigation by
the board begun, than Attorney Gen
eral Reed, ignoring the board's activ
ities, attempted to sdttle the strike by
enjoining both sides from doing any
thing but pursuing normal lines of
When the board undertook to go
ahead with its investigation the at
torney general enjoined the board
from further proceedings.
Now comes the threat of some of
the labor .leaders to appeal directly
to the federal Department of Labor
to send representatives here to in
vestigate the legality of the injunc
tion, and make other full investigation
of the strike situation.
Kennedy and Gompers in
Tilt Over Draft Exemption
Samual Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, and
Frank Kennedy, editor of the Western
Laborer of Omaha, have been carry
ing on through correspondence and
in the columns of the Western La
borer a little tilt regarding Gompers'
proposal that labor union officials
should be exempted from the first
Gompers has been quoted as hay
ing formally asked that married men.
widowers with children under 14, and
labor union officials, be exempted
from the first draft.
Kennedy, in his paper, replied by
objecting to labor asking for special
privileges and then protesting against
other classes getting special privileges.
Gompers has written Kennedy a
long letter in explanation saying it is
not to avoid the performance of mil
itary service that he asks this exemp
tion, but merely that men who are
retained by their organizations to
perform a bona fide service to labor
organizations might be kept at home
to continue this service which he holds
to be essential to the welfare of labor
and the country at large.
Kennedy replied "If labor can get
away with the exemption claims for
certain men, then the banks, railroads,
and all commecial institutions have
a perfect right to ask for the same

to A. D'Benardi, who resigned to go

Corn Receipts for Omaha
In June Break All Records
Corn receipts in Omaha for the first
twenty-two days of June were 2,755
This is regarded as unusual for this
season of the year, as farmers ordi
narily are busy in the fields and do
not ship grain. The above receipts
are almost double the quantity re
ceived at other markets during the
same period and are double the quan
tity received in this market during the
same period a year ago.
