THOUSAND OUT A Speolal Representative of Union Pacifio Strikers Discusses Situation, MEN HAVE BEEN OUT OVER EIGHT MONTHS They Are Confident of Winning Their Fight in the End-in the Meantime the Company Is Employing Large Numbers of Non-Union Men and Maintaining Them at Heavy Expense. G. A. Ochsenhein, the special represen tative of the Union Pacific strikers, who is in the city at present, in speaking of the conditions on that road said this mnorn,.4: "The strike has now been on for more than eight months. The trouble begin when the boilermakers asked for more pay and all the mechanics were laid of! by the snangement. About a week later the men received word that machinists could go back to work at what is known as the 'piece-work' system. L'nder that system the men are paid by the piece or job, in stead of getting regular union wages for a day's work. Some men can work faster than others and under such a System are bound to get more work and consequently more money. "This, in the course of time, would very wsaturally cause dissension among the men, and that was the object of the company. By getting the union men quarreling among themselves it would become a simple matter for the corporation to break up all semblance of organization among the laborers. "'The strike spread from Omaha to Ogden and from Kansas City to Cheyenne and Denver. One conference was held with the officials of the company about six months ago, but nothing came of it. "Some of the officials gave it out that so per cent of the men were in favor of the piece-system, but when that plan of work was forced on the woodworkers, the amen went out in a body. The American Feder ation of Labor has done all that it could to bring about a reasonable settlement, but without success, and it is thought tha: there will be a general boycott declared against the entire Union Pacific system. "The company got out an injunction prohibiting the strikers from interfering in any way with the non-union men that had been brought to take their places. There has been little or no violence ex cept on the part of the company. Dis trict President Perry of the Union Pacit;c Machinists, was attacked at Cheyenne and as a result has lost the sight of one eye. The men feel morally certain that the men attacking Mr. Perry were the hired agentqof the Union Pacific. "The company is having some difficulty at the present time owing to the fact that the minority stockholders of the Southern Pacific have taken out an injunction to prevent the money of that road being used to help the Union Pacific in its trouble. For some time past the South ern Pacific has paid no dividends for the reason that all of the money has been appropriated to the use of the Union l'a cific. "T'here are ten of us out on the road getting subscriptions to help carry on the fight, and up to date we have had very good success. I have only been in Butte a day or so, hut already I have secured promises of very substantial amounts for the fund. I think it will be only a ques tion of time when the company will be forced to do the square thing by the men." To Cure a Colt in One Day Take Laxative Bromo-Quinine Tablets.

If rea sonable care is used, however, and Cham berlain's Cough Remedy taken, all danger will be avoided. Among the tens of thou sands who have used this remedy for these diseases we have yet to learn of a single case having resulted in pneumonia, which shows conclusively that it is a certain pre ventive of that dangerous disease. It will cure a cold or an attack of the grip in less time than any other treatment. It is pleasant and safe to take. For sale by Paxson & Rockefeller, Newbro Drug Co., Christie & Leys, Newton Bros.
