' Employes and Street Car Offi
cials Evade Attempt to Bind
Them to Verdict of Railway
Commission in Wage Dispute.
STATE BOARD ADJOURNS 1
HEARING TILL MONDAY
Attorneys Engage in Heated
Controversy When Effort Is
Made to Force Union Men to
Surrender Walkout Rights.
The state Railway commission ad
journed its hearing on the wage dis
pute between the carmen's union and
the Omaha and Council Bluffs Street
Railway company until next Monday
morning at 10, after an all-day ses
sion in the court house yesterday,
which was devoted entirely to argu
, ments ' regarding the jurisdiction of
' the commission over the dispute.
Harry G. Taylor, chairman of the
commission, informed attorneys for
the union and the company that the
commission would announce defi
nitely Monday whether or not it
would take jurisdiction over the con
troversy. He instructed the oppos
ing factions to be prepared to carry
on the hearing at once, provided tru
commission decided that it had law
ful jurisdiction over the dispute.
The company challenged the con
stitutional right of the commission
to fix wages at the hearing yestei
clay, contending that by no interpre
tation of either the constitutional or
statutory law could the commission
fix the contract price between the
employer and the employe.
Heated Argument Ensues.
Throughout the session members
of the commission sought some as
surance that should they take up the
matter the union would abide by
their decision and not strike should
the decision be unfavorable. A heat
ed debate began when a member of
the commissicm asked Atorney
Frank M. Coffee of Lincoln, counsel
for the union, if the union would ic
tatisfied If a raise was npt granted.
"Will the street car company
abide by the commission's deci
sion?" shouted Mr. Coffjey. glaring
at John L. Webster, counsel for the
"We always have and always will
abide by the decision of the courts,"
replied Mr. Webster, half rising
from his chair in anjrer. "The com
pany doesn't go off and take se
cret votes to strike, either!"
"No, but your board of directors'
meetings are very secret, retorted
In reply to a direct question
whether the union would call a
strike or take the matter to the su
preme court if the commission
granted no increase, A. "H. Bigelow,
counsel for the union, saidr
"If the board makes a careful and
trrpartial investigation of the situa
tion and finds that a wage increse
i:: not necessary its decision will be
of great weight with members of
the union, and with the iublic. It
take3 a stronger body than any
union to defeat public sentiment."
"The union should not expect the
commission to take up the matter
unless it , comes before you with
clean hands," declared Mr. Webster.
"To do that; it must revoke the
strike order. The company offered
in good faith to submit its books to
the commission for examination
provided the men would abide by
the commission's findings.
Both Factions Confident.
"They 'agreed to this one day and
the next day declared that the strike
would not be called off if the com
mission's findings were not satis
factry. It would be better if vt'.ie
company should employ an entirely
new force, if this eternal conflict is

that the commission would decide in

that ft has no jurisdiction over the

Bigelow. "We are confident that it

what action the company would taKe
if the hearing was continued. ,
,The union requested a wage in
crease of 13 cents an hour in its com
plaint filed with the commission, and
ftated that a strike had been voted.
Mr. Bigelow explained during the
hearing that "a failure on the part of
the commission to grant the entire 13
cents did not mean that a, strike
would be called."

pany has been losing $5,000 a month
by a systematic robbing of the coin
boxes by street car conductors, ac
cording to Chief of Police John

f The robbing of the boxes was ac
complished by means of a specially

the end of a line, the conductor
would work the box. One conductor
confessed that he had taken $6 that
day. - Anothe conductor confessed
to robbing as high as three boxes a
It is said that 15 men have been
using the wrenches. The chief says

Lost in Shuffle of
Chicago, June 10. The repub
lican platform plank designed to
deal with prohibition got lost' in
the shuffle todav, furnished a new
thrill for "wets'" and "drys" and
raised some question of its legal
status. . '
The plank does ' not mention
prohibition, but is a "law and
order" declaration for impartial
enforcement of all laws.
In a mixup from confusion of
platform work, the plank was left
from the great pile taken to the
Coliseum and read by Chairman
Watson of the resolutions com
mittee. It was not read to the
convention and was not in 'the
platform as officially adopted, but
Chairman, Watson, Senator Smoot

Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bh Leased Wire.
Washington, June 10. Possibil
ity of the immediate enactment of
waterpower legislation loomed up
today. Attorney General Palmer
gave President Wilson an inform,al
opinion that he has until tomorrow
night to act upon the waterpower
bill which was thought to have been
killed by the pocket veto method
Although it has been penerally
supposed that a measure not signed
at the time of the adjournment of
congress automatically died, the at
torney general takes a' contrary
view. It is his contention that-the
president has a period of 10 days
in which to sign a bill, regardless
of whether congress may have .ad
journed in the meantime or. not.
The 10 days period in the case of
the waterpower bill would expire
tomorrow night In the case of
ether measures, including the reso
lution for the repeal of war legis
iation and the Underwood resolu
tion for the appointment of a com
mission to negotiate with the Cana
dian government for the lifting of
embargoes on shipments of pulp, of
wood to this country, the president
lias until June 15 to act.
The president refused to sign any
of these hills on the closing day of

that he had riot had sufficient time

Nebraska Governor Makes Big

Convention Hall, Chicago, June
10. (Special Telegram.) Governor
McKelvie for vice president if Low
den is not nominated, was heard on
many sides of political row tonight
McKelvie today made a speech be
fore the Hamilton club, which has
been open house to every bitr repub
lican of whatever leanings during
the convention, and the governor
from the great prairie state stood
the guests, two or three hundred,
on their feet when he said that the
farmer deserved the sympathetic
consideration of all the people. "An
appeal to reason instead of agita
tion is needed," he said, "and the
great rural sections of the country
should have consideration not only
in the platform but in the makeup
of the ticket.
He said that while not a critic of
contentions like Chauncey Depew
hiss observations about the conven
tion now in session was the absence
of so-called bossisms, that had char
acterized the makeup of the conven

to a session of the committee on
resolutions the first open session of
such a committee ever held and it

"Agriculture is the most intimate
thing with which you have to deal,"
said the governor, "for it means life,
it means food, it means clothing,
and it should be recognized in this
convention at its true worth."
