DOWN AMONG THE COACIIERS Where and How the Union Pacific Makes Its Gilded Flyers. THE EVOLUTION OF THE LOG. ' Tlio Itluc , Progress ntul Decline of Old No. 7 How n Lout Car was Found After Having liccn Appropriated. Down on the bottoms , nt the foot of Cass itrcct , enclosed by n high board fgiicc , which Is painted n dull , cheerless brown , there Is n beehive of Industry , the Interior of which Is but llttlo known to the ordinary citizen who flnlly plods along the busy , bustling thoroughfares - fares of the business portion of Omaha. This Is the nhopj of the Union Pacific rail road , nml to reach them you must pass In spection nt , the outer gate , where you are turned over to John Wilson , nslstnnt super intendent of moUvo power and machinery. After being ushered Into his presence , if your business Is of n legitimate nature , you are Riven n psissport , which allows you to go from Department to department , where you cnn see the workings of the ponderous and Intricate machines which manufacture everything from Ihe drivowheel of n locomotive to thosmnllcst tnek used In upholstering n car scat. Probably In this great workshop , where hundreds of skilled mechanics toll , there Is no place ( if moro interest than the ear shops , located in the extreme northwestern corner of the grounds occupied by the shops. 'Looking at them from the exterior thcso buildings , which nro painted the same dull color , present n cheerless and forbidding appearance. But when once Inside the scone is changed and It Is n pleasure to watch thorough rough lumber , as It passes from hand linntl until , nt Inst ns n result of the labor of human hands , you observe a beautiful car , capable of carrying Its load of human lives in perfect safety. The working force of the qar shops. 414 men. Is divided Into seven gangs , over which A. M. Collctt has general supervision , nnd that ho understands his work there can bo but llttlo doubt , ns ho has been with the com pany twenty-two years , nnd twenty years of that time he has occupied the important posi tion of general foronmn. Each gang of men Is In charge of a foreman , J. M. Hlco having control of the carpenters ; J. Stout , the painters ; J. W. McCune , the woodworkers ; G. E. Stratman , the up holsterers ; 11. Anderson , the repairers ; George Andrecn , the silver-platers , and Jacob Ncff the truck and airbrake men. The buildings in which thcso men work covers n space of 170x400 feet nnd are two stories high. In building a car , J. W. McCuno goes to the lumber yard , selects his timbers for the frame work and has them taken into the shops , where his men work them down to the proper dimensions , square them up nnd then turn them over to the carpenters who nro under the directions of J. M. HIce. These men have a more dlfllcult task to per form , for they build the cur , framing and putting It together. As soon as this is done , everything is turned over to the painters , who are under J. Stout and in a few days , if it bo a freight Kir , it has taken on a brown color , iti white letters , Which comprise the words , "Union Pacp1 ! . ' , " familiar from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. While nil this is going on , if it bo n pas senger couch that Is being constructed , Jacob NelT and bis men are busily engaged lu get- ling the tmcits nnd air brakes in place , and Amlrccn's men are doing the sllverplating to bo followed up by Strattniuu's. force of up holstcrcrs. This Is not accomplished in a day , nor is it In a week. To build u coach requires from Ibrce to four months , but when ono Is built , it Is so perfect that It is sent out on the road Without having to bo tested , though in other thops cars uro frequently tested fo'r weeks be fore being put Into fust trains. Until a few'years ago most of the freight cars and a largo number of the passenger coaches , together with the mail , baggage and express cars , were built In these shops ; but since the system has constructed its now lines the business bus become so enormous that most of tlio cars have been built on contract in the east , and the work of the shops hero has been entirely in the nature of repairs and rebuilding the coaches which have grown old In the service or been damaged In wrecks. Of th'cse , during the past three years , from ! I30 to 400 passenger coaches have passed through the shops monthly. Many of them thatcomo In out of wrecks are practically rebuilt , nnd when they again leave the shops they are vir tually new caw. A passenger car us regards style Is like n lady's bonnet. It will not wear out but the etvlo will change to such an extent that it will bo useless in the passenger trufllo mid must bo put to some other uso. The history of old No. 7 best illustrates this. In 18ti7 the Omaha shop turned out No. 7 , its first passenger coach. In those days the coaches wcro painted .a bright yellow , mid this coach , with Its gaudy exterior , its ele gant interior and Its low "deck" was the envy of all eyes. It carried George Francis Train to the coast , and when the ofllclals came on from the cast it was always at their Borvicc. At last , however , tho''high-decks" became fashionable and No. 7 was put on as n smoker mid for n time performed it-s duty In this cupaclty. The next thing complaints commenced to como In and there was a crying demand for u better car. Then it was run second class for a time , and oven second class uassongers kicked for bettor nccommodatlons. The next move was to take the car Into the shous , glvo It a thorough overhauling and send It up Into the mountains torunonsomeof the now branches , where its style was satisfactory to the old miners until people from the effete cast set tled In that locality nnd objected to Its puss- Ing through the towns. The old relic was thnn imt , Into thn piMlirniiit. m rrii'n. whnm fni * B few years it was considered good enough. Once inoro , liowovcr , tlioro was n kick , and oven the iK'ojilo from the other side of the ocean refused to to ride in tlio old pioneer , end It was accordingly turned over to llm' working crews , whom It Is now boliitf used. [ The history of thlw cur Is the history of till other curs , and thus it Is readily seen that u coach goes out of style loiiu buforo it wears out. Freight cars go through about the saiuo ex perience. Seven years ago standard cars liml u capacity of ten tons. Now they are consid ered useless and the car with a carrying cu- ' paclty of f > 00oO ( ) pounds Is the standard. Bag- Kago and express curs ( jo on forever , the style never changing and many of tlio cars that went out on the llrst overland trains are in use today , though they hnvo been repaired nnd repainted times without number. It Is not generally supposed that a car can bo lost , BO perfect. Is tlio system of tracing , but such Is the cnso. . Twelve years ago n passenger car was turned out of the shop and In ono of the boards on tlio sldo there was u knot that when dressed down represented to some ex tent a hiiinan face. This car was sent out In nn overland train and In some manner , in switching In Salt Lake City , was left out of the train. A hunt was at ouco Instituted , Imt it could not bo found. Tracers wore sent over the entire Bystetn , but the car failed to show up ami In the company's olllco It was charged up us lost , it having been supposed that it was caught In u wreck and burned. Flvo years later , as Mr. CollMt was walking down the yards , his eyes caught u peculiar llguro on u car that belonged to an eastern road and calling sev eral of hU old-tlmo men about him , they at once decided that it was the cur that had been lost for so many years. It was at once conllscated und upon the eastern road being notified , no dunmud was intulo for the return of the car. The pattern room of the shops is n most interesting department. It U situated on the second lloor of the building the farthest east nnd ' in it , in inlnlaturo , is every portion of over'v style of car that bus been built in Onuuia since the shops were established. In the rear of this , ono finds the sliver plating department , where George Audrecu mid his trusty assistants labor. To bo a sldllful plutcr , requires n man to know something of chemistry , as chemicals in certain proportions must bo used in the electro-bnths , which consist of huge tubs tilled with solu tions. If silver plating is to bo used sheet of pint ) Oliver one-sixteenth of an Inch In thcKiieiS | : is suspended from u copper rod wear the side of the tub , whllo from another rod of similar material the article to bo plntod la suspended. Tbo electric current is Uicn turned on mid in a few hours the of silver has disappeared , but it has not gone out of existence. It has formed a coating over a window stop , n screw head or n thousand nnd ono other things that go to beautify the intnrlor of llrst class passenger coaches. . The work of gold plating Is performed in the same manner , though not to so uro.it an extent. After coming from the bath thcso articles have a dull appearance , but this soon disappears lifter they have passed through the hands of tha bunilshnrs. For n tlmo after establishing the shops , the disposition of the shavings , of which Iiupo quantities dally accumulate , was n serious question. IJut by an Ingenious contrivance , they are now readily disposed of. Over each planing mnchlno nn opon-mouthcd plpo has been placed. Thcso pipes pass through the upper lloors whcro they connect with u larger pipe , In which there Is a huge fan. The engine which operates the machinery keeps this fan In motion. The suction draws the shavings into the plpo and carries them to the furnace Ir. the rear of the buildings where the two great 8oO horse power engines are located. Fatal accidents have been exceptionally few , nnd the death rate In the shops .has been loss per capita than in any other manu facturing c. tnbllRhtncnt In the city. The llrst mau tilled ' wits Ole John son , n Swfcdo. This1 happened In ISfVS. Ho was working on tha roof of the building occupied by the planing mill , nnd slipping , ho fell through the glass roof to the floor below , a distance of thirty feet. Ills skull was crushed nnd ho lived but two hours. The car shrjps hnvo n lira department that is unequalled and Is composed of twenty men under the command of Charles Fisher. The apparatus consists of u hotfo cart and the Dunint steamer. The men nro thoroughly drilled and caji cover any point In the shops within three minutes from the tlmo the alarm is turned It ) from the alarm system , which Is Independent of the up-town circuit. Onrpont rs' Olliucrs and At n meeting held at Gate Ctty hull Tues day evening the members of carpenters' union , No. fiS , elected the following olllcers for the ensuing quarter : President , Charles Hicnhnrt ; treasurer , William B. Musser ; corresponding secretary , William Mcldon ; financial secretary , John Peterson. In selecting u delegate to represent the union at thelrgener.il convention of the car penters tuul Joiners , to be held at Chicago , August 4 , William U. Musser was the unani mous choice. The convention , which will bo attended by delegates from every carpenters' union in the United States and Canada , will bo in ses sion two weeks. During that time , In addi tion to discussing labor questions , it will decide upon u scale of wapos that shall be maintained In all cities where unions are in existence T. V , Powdorly , Halph Beaumont and a number of other prominent labor advocates of the country will bo in attendance to ex press their views and give advice upon the various subjects that may come before the convention. The last gathering of the kind was held nt Buffalo. N. Y. , two yours ago , and was at tended by l.'OO delegates , this elty ut that time having been represented by Mr. Musser. tlio ( tnrliers Union. Several months ago the barbers union took up the Sunday-closing question , and By forc ing it to an issue , went to pieces. During the past few weeks , n number of the members who favored closing on Sunday have taken hold of the remnant of the old society and have been able to once moro place it upon Ita feet. Within n few weeks , ns u con sequence , the light will bo foughtover again , with some assurance that the men who favor the six day rule will come out winners. Before going into this lust deal , they an nounced that they had consulted the various labor unions of the city and received pledges of support which will not bo broken As be fore , the light will bo between the shop owners and the Journeymen , the shop owners , or n large n amber of them favor u seven-day week , while , almost to u man , the jonsncy- nicn will ask that six days shall constitute a working week. Hcci-iiitlng Tiillors. A movement is now on foot to fill up the tailors' union and make it ono of tuo strongest labor organizations in the city. Last season , with a full fledged strike on its hands , and the members who wcro out ot work to support , the treasury was depleted und a disruption was threatened. Ltill. the old organization was kept up alter u fashion' although no business was transacted. This .season the men Having had plenty to do , nnd feeling in good syirits und lit peace with all men. they have < ron out into' too byways and hedges and gathered up the knights of the needle and thimble until now the organization has ! ) OU members in tno ranks , with moro coming in at every meeting. They point with considerable prile to the work accomplished during the past six months , us they claim that at Unit nimo there was only three or I'oua union shops in the city , while now , with three exceptions , the shop owners will give meferenco to union men. So far this season , work has been plenty and wages fair , with do prospects of uny labor dilliculty. Hod Carriers. Two years ago the hod carriers boasted that , In there union , they bed U0 ! mem bers In good standing. The b ick layers' strike that followed , worked sud havoc in the ranks of the organization , and n few months later , whllo their union was not broken up , its inllnenco was so weakened that it was hardly reconlzed in the circles of united labor. This season the go-ahead members have in fused now life Into the old orga'nlzuti and have put It upon , its feet , so that Ithas about gained what it lost. To do this has required u vast amount of work , but the prime movers not knowing such n word as full , have not onjy themselves became entousiiistio , but have worked up this hamo feeling among the mem bers , until now the organization holds its regular meetings and promises much before the end of the present season. Clerks' Jloiu-s. The central labor union committee has presented the petition for early closing to those who refused before und boon favored with tholr names with the exception of A. D. Morse ujid Phil Lang , who refuse to sign It , nnd wlios Q men claim to bo aatlstlcd with their present hours. t The union lias taken action upon It , nnd it now rests between it and those firms for snt- tlcment. * The clerks fool confident of success , claimIng - Ing to bo backed by the public , press , pulpit , labor unions , us also 'many leading buslncbs men. w IAlHHl XOTJEH.

THE LORD'S ' CHOSEN PEOPLE , Borne of the Things They Have Been Doing Recently , THE CLARKSON CHILD'S ' HOSPITAL. A PlncoVliero tlio Iilttto Ones Are Tenderly Cnrcd For trtcv.VII - Inrd Scott on Donne College - ' lego Other Matters. A smell of chloroform , a slip half-wuy through the open door , thtto doctors nproncd with pure white cloth bending over the raised couch , justn gllmiMoof nnaked-nrm lying still along tho'whlto shoot. This passing glance ono may get perhaps as ho enters the hallway on the llrst lloor of. the Clarksou memorial hospital on Dodge street. The operating table stands covered with Its white oilcloth and towels , a melancholy sight , In the mlddlo of the operating room. Hero at the sldo Is the water tnblo with 1W army of tin basins and towols. An abundance of light comes through the north windows. The room Is bare of "furnlturo , an oilcloth irrit and the doctors' high stools complete Chu otitllt. To return to the hall ono must pass through the apartment of Mrs. Moore , the matron. This Is a moro cheerful place , though occu pied but n small part , of tho"tl'mo by its owner , who continually busies herself else- where. The reputation this plnco enjoys Is duo largely to lt.i matron and attendants. who are till practical nurses and delightful women. Directly across the hall is the p.trlor or waiting-room , furnished plainly with nn ubundnnco of easy chairs. On the Wall hangs a half-length portrait of Bishop Clurkson. The center tnblo Is furnished with books and papers , and a largo tray Is llllcd with the cards of visitors. Up the stairs on the second floor are the six rooms given to older patienta. Three uro occupied. The cots stand with coverlets tucked in waiting for expected newcomers. Each room 1't.s its several chairs and dresser and llttlo table. The iron cots with br.iss trimmings are inndo up entirely in while. Immaculate white linen Is everywhere. Tiio nurses , with white caps and apron * , cool and ready for everything , soothe the tired pa tients quite as much us the medicines they bring from the closet at tlio stairs' top. All through the building is an air of cool cleanli ness and the disagreeable odor of drugs gives wuv to that pleasant one of abundant roses 'I'he patients on this floor are all doing well , ns , with two exceptions , is the c.isu throughout the hospital. The patients amuse themselves by rca'ding or by visiting each other. Patients arc introduced by the nurses or become acquainted among themselves and call upon each other to gossip. It is surpris ing how much they know of what is going on "Indoors , " r.s they are given no information by the nurses , who answer every inquiry about another's health with "Ho is better , " whether he is so or not. They will tell you that Mrs. T. is to bo operated * upon when the nuraoe are the only ones supposed to know it. They pick it up from accidental remarks of the nurses ancl compare notes when together. The children are on the first mid third floors , in little cots placed in rows along the room's side. Two young boys with hip dis ease are In the east room. Tlu-y have high times u hen the doctor isu't doing anything worse than joking them. One little fellow will curls had Tin : BIB : before him , not read ing , but looking at the pictures in the adver tisements. The boy with the we.ik sr'no ' llrmly intends to bo monkey for soma organ grinder when he gets out. . Two little girls uro in the west room. All are provided with tovs mul the kind nurses olten roii'l to them. On the llrst floor where , as he climbs the hill , ono often catches a glimpse of a little body in nwhito gown , perhaps of a bare arm or leg as they throw doll clothes at each other , are two girls perhaps six years old and a baby boy. One girl was too sick to look up today , but the other sat by the window bath ing her sick doll. i Frederick Prayer is two and a half years old and is afllicled with malignant cancer. In deed , the nuitroii , who unselfishly devotes all her spare time to him , says that it is but a question of time till ho will die. He has a sad story. His parents are both youngand when the cancer began to grow on his face , and Ignorant neighbors to tell great talcs of It , his young father deserted them all and has not been heard from since. His mother is a cook ut the Creche and bos a younger child which she brought throJgh Wednesday's rain to bo doctored at the hospital. The little - tlo patient has been a bravo baby and has en deared himself to the nurses by his wonder ful brightness. But ho is sunk so low as to remain in almost continual stupor. This per sonal mention is made by request of Mrs. Moore , the matron , in the hope that it will reach the father and toucn him with some sort of feeling for them. A Thriving Institution. Hcv. AVlllnrd Scott spent the past week in Crete attending the commencement exercises of Doano college , the principal Congregation ill educational institution of the state. Last Sunday ho preached the baccalaureate sermon before the graduating class and throughout the week participated in the ex ercises. The college closed on Thursday. The graduating class this year consisted of seven young men and ono young 1'idy. it being the second largest class that over loft the in stitution , the largest containing nine gradu ates.
