If the members of the Painters Union, who are now out on a strike, do not return to their work tomorrow morning, tho boss painters claim that they will put mon from out of town, who are members of the Amalgamat ed Association of Painters, at work in their placos and the Building Trades Association will back the boss paint ers in what they do. The striking painters claim if the bosses do this they will call out the members of every other trade in town and thus tie up the work everywhere. Whether this threat will be carried out remains to be seen. When a prominent member of the Building Trades Association was seen bv a News reporter this morning, he said : . "We are about tir?d of the ihe painters are acting and will stand" by the bosses in what they do no matter what oomes, and if the journeymen painters do not return to work tomor row morning the bosses will bring in the Amalgamated painters from out of town. The work has gotten so now that it must be done." When the reporter explained that according to a representative of the painter's union this would result in all the building trades in the city go ing out on strike, he replied: "Let them go, Ij guess wo can stand it. Perhaps then we will get some sort of an agreemont. " A number of the painters were seen and they said they were just as firm as they ever were and if the bosses would only sign the wage scale agree ment, they wonld return to work at onco. A bosB painter, in talking to the re porter said : , "Our offer to the painters is still the same as it was on May 1 when they went on a strike. We a?ree to pay them $2.75 a day for eight hours work, but will not under any consid eration sign their wage scale agree ment. Although we have set tomor row for the men to return to work we do not expect them to do so, but we are determined to break this strike at any cost as we are heartily sick of it." In explaining what is meant by a general strike the painters say that every mechanic, masons and carpen ters, no matter whore they are work ing, will be called out. There are two factions of painters. All the journeymen hereabout belong to the Brotherhood. There is another union, however, known as the Amalgamated painters. These two are opposed to each other and will not work together. The looal men do not want the Amal gamated to gain a foothold here and to that end. it is said all the trades unions here will stand by the brother hood painters to drive them out of town.

" A number of the boy friends claim that he was very intimate with a young fellow a little older than him self, who was connected with the Gondit-Mack Company which played in this city several weeks ago, and it is said that this fellow told voung Markwitz that he was foolish if he did not join the companv as he could easily make 14 a day and, as the young fellow was going to quit, he would fix it so Abe could get the job if ho wished it. Mrs. Markwitz admitted that sho had heard the story but did not know whether it was true or not.

When the Equitables come here Saturday to plar the second (came of the series with the Marions they will have as back stop Morris Hickey, the former catcher for the Marions who ( was with the locals during 1901 and until late last season, when illness f compelled retirement from the game. Hickev's ability as a player is an , old story to tho fans and he has a host of friends in this city who were won by his honest endeavors in be half of the local team. In baseball phraseology he always "kept a workin" and no player evor worked harder or was more sincere in the , effort to win games for the Marions. Hickey was of great assistance to ( Rochelle in 15)01 when the latter was pitching for the Marions. He was a clever man behind the bat, a good hitter and had few equals as a base runner and ran getter. His appear ance in this city, even thongh it be with an opposing team, will be wel comed by local basoball lovers and there is no question but that he will play just as hard against the Marions us ho ever playod for them. Freed berg, whose place Hickey takes be hind the bat, is now playing in the outfield. Pianos at the old stand. Peder Olseu, 86 Smith street. 6-9to7-4 e.o.d? adv. NOTICE!
