Emaployees Claim the Receivers Have No Right to Reduee Wage th -the Men Orlaniszng. LivisnsTox, Dec. 7.-There seems to be trouble brewing between the North- A ern Pacific company and its employee all along the line. Since the announce ment a short time ago of another reduc tion in wages all the railroad orders have been holding frequent sessions here, and it is said all along the line. The shop men, whose wages were re duced once before, as well as clerks, etc., are amalgamating with the trainmen's n orders, and they are preparing to resist n the proposed cut. a There is here a union of nearly every h department in the shops, of machinists. boiler makers, car men, etc.. and the engineers, firemen, brakemen and con- a ductors all belong to orders. tl The men say tnat the entire road is well organized, and that a represents- P n tive from each order will wait upon the n. officials in St. Paul some time during present month. All are agitated more or less and all classes of skilled labor as are working together. p. The proposed cut, it is claimed, will work a hardship on shop men, who are t an and have been for nearly a year, work-. ing only nine hours. The first cut was made on a basis of ten hour's pay and t the second cut will be on the same basis the men think. This will reduce the wages of many men as low as $'23i to $40 h per month. Some of the men say that the only just cut which the company proposes to make is that affecting engineers and firemen running on the mountain be tween here and Bozeman,-"hill men"' or "'hog men," as they are called. En gineers on the helpers frequently draw ; 8250 per month and even more, some drawing as high as 275, more than the t bY pay of the superintendent. 8j Superintendent Finnthinks there will r be no trouble, and if there is, he thinks I the Northern Pacific road can well af I' ford to close down operations for a ho couple of months. He says the road is : in the hands of the ITnited Itaten and R the company would not even be obliged to carry the mails. The employes claim that the receivers have no authority to reduce wages, and the courts have so held. A meeting of a shopmen was held last evening, all b classes of employes being present, but it as the meeting was secret the result P will probably not be givenout. p A Loaing Venture. d -- n BUTTE. Dec. 7.- This was pay day with the Butte City Street Railway companr. The checks were written out and signed as usual, but were thrown d out at Clark's bank. Manager Wharton was notified that the bank could not ad. vance any more money on the street b railway company's credit. The road is still running, but will probably be shut * down in a day or two. The employes will have to file liens for their pay. The owners of the railway are W. A. Clark, 8i of Butte, and Nelson Bennett of Tacoma. a the former owing one-third and the la- a " ter two-thirds. The road. it is stated, has been losing money since it was started, in spite of all efforts to make it a paying investment. Distressing Accident t at Ieer Ledge. DEER LODxiE, Dec. 7.--A distressing accident happened to Mrs. Frank Con lay and her guest, Miss Mary Sullivan, of Butte. They were out eleighriding w and were returning from Quinlan's ranch when one of the shafts fell down, thus throwing them out. The horses became frightened and kicked Mrs. Con ley on the left arm, breaking it above the elbow. Miss Sullivan sustained in- e ternal injuries, but how serious cannot ) . be determined at this time. Loegest Draw prm. d Coac'LL BLUFrs. Ia.. Dec. 7.-The new terminal railway company's bridge over the Missouri river will be thrown w open to public travel tomorrow. The 0 great structure will not be entirely com v. pleted for several years yet, but travel ' over the bridge is by false work, which c is constantly being renewed and re- c placed by material of the main struc a ture. This bridge has the longest draw Sspan in the world, and connects Council Bluffs with east Omaha. Look at the Christmas numbers of Peare Pictorial.

GuI(A.T FALLs, Dec. 7.-The farmer's convention drew a fair audience today at the opera house. Papers were read by Washington Muzzle on deep plough ing. and by S. M. Emery on the agricul tural future of the state. Following these were general discussions by mem bers of the convention. Veterinary Sur leon Williams gave a talk on diseases of horses and cattle. A good deal of in terest is manifested in the proceedings by those present. CHANGINI PIANISTS LA tIeteideat Performanee That Preed. lmteretnlag. "As Interesting as anything 've seen in this town," sail a visitor to the city., "was a change of pianists that I saw in a variety theater. There was a man on the stage singing a song, and the pianist was playing theaccompaniment. I hap pened to see the pianist glancing to the left once, and I looked in that direction myself and saw coming down the aisle a t man that I judged must be the relief pi anist, and so he was. I imagined that he would sit down for a moment and wait, but, dear me, I was very slow. "He was approaching the piano at the bass end of the keyboard. When he had almost reached the corner of the piano, the man who was playing began gently sliding off the seat to the right, still playing. By this time the relief was abreast of the bass keys, and these the first player, who was still sliding stead dly to the right, now relinquished to him, and then the newcomer, still standing, but also moving steadily to the right. struck in in perfect time and tone. "There was a brief ti'r.e. a second or two, when both men were playing-the retiring pianist the treble and the on coming player the bass-and for a frac tion of a second they were both stand ing. But now the new prayer is fairly opposite the center of the keyboard. He settles into the seat, and now it is his hand that strikes the treble, and now the ~ hole piano resounds to his resolute y touch. "In fact, there never was a minute 1 when the piano had anything to say about it. There never was a minute when the men were not completely nmas ters of the situation. There never was an instant from the time the relief ap proached until he was firid7 settled in a his seat when both men were not con e tinuously in motion, bhut the change was made without a jar or a slur in the mu l sic and without the omission a note." --New York Sun. Origi of the am. in The following Chinese legend account at for the invention of the fan in a rather at ingenious fashion: "The beautiful Kan W S1, daughter ofa powerful mandarin, was b assisting at the feast of lanterns, when d she became overpowered bythe heat. She M was compelled to take off her mask. But as it was illegal to expose her face she held her mask before it and gently lut tered it to cool herself. The court ladies present noticed it. and in an instant 100 other hands were waving their masks hi This was the birth of the fan, which to G day takes the place of the mask in Chi- u na."-New York World. di As Improbable Tra. .

The space above the mercury in a ther mometer is not a perfect vacuum. There is not infrequently a small portion of air left in such space, and there is always an atmosphere of the vapor of mercury. Physically speaking, it is perhaps impos sible to procure a vacuum. It is most likely that even it a real vacuum could be procured for an instant air or other vapor would at once begin to be dissem inated front the sides of the vessel in which it was made, and it would thus instantly cease to exist. It is true that Derartee denied the very possibility of a vacuum and says. "If a vacuum could be effected in a ves sel, the sides would be pressed into con tact," but it is hardly correct to say, "fScientists say that a vacuum cannot exist." What scientists do say is what talileosaid, "Nature abhors a vacuum." As the statement of a fact is true, na ture does, to the best of our knowledge. abhor a vacuum. She never suffers it to exist to the extent of allowing any space which is perceptible to our senses to be vacuous. Vacuum. in scientific speech, simply means a space from which air has been expelled.-i3ruoklyn Eagle. A Torpid Liver. A clogged condition of the system is one symptom of a liver out of order. Here is as good and simple a remedy as any I know, writes a physician. Get a nice lemon, cut it in half. Take one half in a tumblerful of cold water, last thing at night, and the other first thing in the morning. Half a pint of very hot water with a squeeze of lemon or lime in it before breakfast is also good. Both remi *dies are well worth trying.-Liveruool Mercury. Strength and Health. If you are not feeling strong and healthy, try Electric Bitters. If "La Grippe" has left you weak and weary use Electric Bitters. This remedy acts directly on liver, stomach and kidneys. gently aiding those organs to perform their functions. If you are afflicted with sick headache, you will find speedy and permanent relief by taking Electric Bitters. One trial will convince you that this is the remedy you need.
