. The vicinity of the smcltlntf works pre
sented nn animated .ipponr.ttico at 7 o'clock
yesterday morning , the tlmo sot for the inuu
In the roasters And blast furnaces and the pot
haulers to votu upon the eight hour ciuostton.
All the mem employed at these places on
both shifts wore asieinhled about the tlmo-
keeper's ofllco at the south end of the works ,
prepared to vote on the proposition.
It was a very orderly crowd and no demon
strations of any kind wcro made. The men
stood about In group * discussing current
topics and the quoitlou at Issue seemed to bo
passed over ns though It was virtually sot-
tied and not n question for argument.
Neither Ilacon nor Wclcti were present nor
wore there any Indications of any rooellious
feeling.
ScrKoantOravos and a detail of police were
on Hand , but their services were not re
quired.
Each workman had heen provided with a
circular letter explaining the terms otlorod
for the eight-hour and the twelve
hour shift and with a ballot In favor
of eight hours and another In favor of twelve
hours. Evorv man had also boon furnished
nn ordinary brown envulopo largo enough to
contain the ballots and they had bean In
structed to put a ballot In the envelope and
seal it up so that the vote might he secret.
B Full instructions as to the manner of con
ducting the election nad been formulated by
President Barton , and ttieru was no chance
for a misunderstanding.
It was provided that three Judges and two
clerks should have charge of the election. It
was also provided that the company's timeKeeper -
Keeper , H. 1C. Ward , should act as ono of the
clerks on account of his familiarity with the
names and numbers of the men.
At li.yo o'clock the men were all as
sembled about the gates , the night shift
having quit worlc at ( i o'clock and the day
shift being ready to go to work at 7. Secre
tary Nash btcppi'd to the door of the olllco
aid told the men to select three judge * and u
clerk. The men selected as Judges were
Joseph Here. William Puos and Josnph
Bchnurr. Murk lioatmnn was chosen us
clerk.
The ballot-box was then delivered to the
Judges. It was made of quarter-Inch wood
nud wns about tot : inches square and twelve
Inches high. Tlio top was of wood of the
Etuno thickness and tiad u slot in the center
for the depositing of the ballots. This box
was then thoroughly examined oy the Judges
and the ton securely screwed on by them.
The balloting then commenced. The men en
titled to vote walked through the narrow pas
sageway In the timekeeper's olllco und handed
ono of the Judges his ballot securely scaled ,
nt the same time giving his name and num
ber. The latter were recorded by the clerks
and the ballot deposited In the box. At the
tlmo of the strike there were " 00 men em
ployed In the cupolas , roasters and hauling
pots. Since the settlement nearly all of tlioso
men have been tukon hack , but In order to
avoid uuv dissatisfaction all of the men wlio
had been employed in these departments
wcro allowed to vote , whether they uro em
ployed at present or not.
When the votine was concluded the box
wns Healed and the cover wa'i then removed.
The ballots wcro counted and compared with
the tally sheets. They corresponded ni.d it
appeared that out of the possible 200 there
had been 181 votes cast , showing a very full
voto. The envelopes were then opened and
the ballots counted. The result was as fol
lows :
Tor eight linurs , r > S
For Uvolvu hums 120
*
Total I8l
The Judges certified the result of the vote
and returned the box , ballots , tally scoots ,
eta , to Mr. linrton. They then resumed
their work , spreading the news among the
men where it caused very general satisfac
tion , few complaints being heard.
This action settles the question of hours to
the satisfaction of all concerned and the men
will work In twelvo-hourshifts.wlth no double
shifts , and twenty-four hours lay-olt every
two weeks.
In conversation with President Barton
after the question of hours had been fully
settled anoint was developed which had not
been made public.
Instead of working twelve hours out of
each twenty-four as has boon clniimd , the
men ouly work ten hours each day. The day
shift coos to woric at 7 n. m. and works until
12 noon , when they have an hour's rest , ' "hoy
resume work at 1 o'clock and worlc until 11 ,
ivhon they tro home. The nightshirt goes to
work at 7 p. in. and works until midnight ,
when they have an hour's ' rest. They re
sume work and work until (1 ( a. m. Tlius
each shift works only ton hours in eacli
twenty-four hours.
By calling in some of the moro proficient
roustabouts and closing down the roasting
furnaces on Sunday , the cupolas are kept
running all the tlmo , and the cupola mon ,
roasters and pot pullers , are given twenty-
four hours off every two weeks.
Under the now order of things the mon In
the blast fiii-uiicca uro paid S.J.-IO per day
with no lay-off. Under the old order of
ttilncs the men received $ ' 3.35 per day with
four days' lay-off each month at half pay.
In other words , mon In the blast furnr.co
who recolvo3.10 per day with no lay-off ,
work twenty-eight aavs in each month and
rocclvo Jt'tf.UO ; formerly they worked twenty-
six days and received W ) per month. The
men have been claiming that they lost fj by
the now arrangement , but the ilgures do not
bear them out.
Mr. Burton states that the claim that the
men In the cupolas are skilled mechanics is
not correct. A common laborer with ordi
nary common sense , ha siiys , can easily be
come export at the cupol.i'ln two weeks and
ho receives nearly douulo the wages paid
laboicrs outside.
Jim Bacon nml John Welch have discharged
themselves and are not employes of the smel
ter company. The former worked live shifts
after the rocout settlement and then loft. Ho
did not show up for worlc for llvo days , and
his ulaco was Illled. The rigid rule t the
matter 1ms been to discharge u man who
failed to show up for work for two days in
succession , but the rule was relaxed lu
Bncou1 ! . caso.
John Welch has boon keeping company
with Bacon and failed to coinu to work for
thrco daj.s in succession. Ho was considered
discharged.

There are a largo number of other tlyors lu
the stnblcs who will assist In making this
the greatest racing season over given In
Omaha ,
The track and stables were full of Ufa and
activity at an early hour yesterday.
Trainers and "swipes" were busy getting
their horses onto the track and rubbing
them down afterwards. Owners stood about
with stop watches in hand comparing horses
and making comments.
The Butler combination which Is booked to
give Its novel rares during fair week will
provide sotim unlauo and amusing racing.
Ono of thp races Is an umbrella raco. Tins is
run as follows : I2.ich jockey loads his horse
to the track , saddles nnd urhllos it ,
lights a cigar , raises his umbrella ,
then mounts nnd starts off. To
win ho must not only como

tent In which a magiciaif will work wonders ,
a panorama of the battle of Gettysburg and
the novcr-touchod-him gentleman who sticks
his head through a silt In a piece of canvas as
a target for the populace to throw balls at.

Ilo DoolnroH That Ho Will Not He In
the Politic-ill Field.
Church Howe , the N'omaha comity farmer ,
arrived in the city from the cast Sunday
night and loft for his farm near Auburn yes
terday morning.
To a representative of Tnr. Br.K Mr. Howe
repeated his llttlo Jokolot about being out of
politics , and tlfo Ignorance ho professed ro-
garltlng the status and prospects of the In
dependent party In Nebraska was really re
markable.
" 1 have boon In the east for n month , "
said Mr. Howe , "and have not kept track of
matters lu Nebraska at nil. I wont to Do-
trolt to the Grand Army reunion nnd am
Just returning homo. 1 am In a hurry to got
back as it is tlmo for fall plowing. I got
hold of an Omaha paper occasionally widlo
I was away and gained a llttlo Knowledge of
what was going on , but I uin not posted on
the situation. "
Mr Howe refused to express any opinion
on the coming olei'tlon and professed Igno
rance of the strength of lOdgerton , the nom
inee for the supreme Judgcshlp. Ho showed
a lively 'utorost und a full knowledge flf the
situation In this Judicial district , and de
clared , verv emphatically , that the Indepen
dents had made a great mUtnko lu the make
up of their tlCKOt.
"I see they have loft Doano oft the tIcKet , "
said ho , "that Is surprising. Doano Is the
strongest anti-corporation man on the bench
In the stnlo. Ilo has always been known to
bo opposed to corporations in everything nml
Is the strongest enemy the railroads havo. I
can't undor-ttaiid what they were thinking
about to drop him. It Is a great mistake.
"Then there Is Wnkoluv. Ho was
at ono tlmo a railroad attorney ,
but that was a long tlmo ago and ho has ,
shown by his rulings and opinions slnca that
tlmo that ho Is opposed to corporations. "
Tonqucstlon about the condition of the
money market Mr. Howe replied that any
change lu the situation depended on the com
ing elections.
"Tho recent decisions of several Judges In
Kansas ou" money questions has made the
eastern capitalists very cautious , " suld Mr.
Howo. "It will take some time to counter
act the impressions created by these deci
sions. People In the east are afraid to loan
any money out bore. While It docs not fol
low that the same conditions exist In this
state , yet they are fearful that such condi
tions may develop here at any tlmo and wo
will have to do everything to correct that
impression.
"Would not the election of candidates
nominated by the independents have a ten-
doncv to strengthen that fear rather than
dispel iti"
"Not necessarily , " replied Mr. Howo. "U'o
must show thorn that they have no reason to
fear such a stnto ot atTnlrs by electing mon
of established reputation who nro known to
be good mon Nebraska Is going to have the
biggest crops the country over saw , " ho
broke off , abruptly , "nnd the state is on the
eve of n prosperous year. I must get at my
full plowing and see nftor my crops. I am
interested in nothing now except agricul
ture. "

Superintendent Fitinntrlok Sees a
Chance to Cut Schoid Mxpon'-es.
In all probability there will bo so-no radi
cal changes made in thoclassillcation of some
of the Omaha schools soon after the fall term
opons. Superintendent ITiUpatriek has been
looking the situation ever , and Is thoroughly
convinced that there are too many seventh
and eighth grndo rooms In the Omaha schools
for the number of pupils taught in tlioio
grades.
In several of the schools there nro seventh
and eighth grade classes that have
but from three to seven pupils
in a class. This , the superintendent
hcllovos , Is all wrong , and if thcaO classes In
two or moro schools can bo united , it will
save the oxpcnso in many instances of ono
teacher , or from $1,000 to $1,200 per vear , and
the pupils will get along just ns well or het-
ter.i"
The superintendent holds that puolls will
do hotter , as a rule , in falrsl/ed classes than
in very small classes. The consolidation of
those gratios into tower classes will make It
necessary for some of the students to walk
farther than they are required to do at
present.
"It would DO money in the poclcot of the
city to pay the car faro of some of those pu
pils. " said the superintendent to a reporter
tor Tun linn , "rather than to continue the
present method of Instructing small classes
In schools that might just ns well bo consol
idated. There nro half a dozen schools
where the classitlcatlon Is very bad and to
continue the present arrangement U the
rankest kind of extravagance. "
This consolidation , if it should tnko place ,
will ho likely to meat with the opposition of
some of the principals , for it will cut dou n
their salaried by reducing the number of
rooms in the schools over which they pre
side. The salaries of the principals are llxod
by the number of rooms In the schools they
have lu charuo and it is altogether orobablo
that this oiTort to lap off f 10 from their salar
ies vill moot with dotormlnod opposition on
the part of the principals und their frlonds.

FIGHTING OVHIl Fli
The Hook iMtnilit and Union Pnulllo
May . \K > > lm Look Horns.
There Is n prospect that the Hook Island
nnd the Union Pnolllc will again cross
swords , this tlmo on a question of froK'ht.
The Missouri I'nctfloJs also Involved In the
controversy which has arisen.
The latter road has been turning a great
deal of freight ever to the Uuck island for
shipment east , but under the old nrrungo-
rnent this freight was handlnd by the Union
Pacillc and hauled across the bildgo to Coun
cil Dluffs and thnra turned over to the Hock
Island.
The Hock Island notified the Missouri Pit-
cillc last weolc that freight consigned to it
must bo turned ever to It on this sldo of the
river nud not turned over to the Union Pa-
cllii ! to haul across the bridge , as heretofore.
The Missouri Pacillc replied that under Its
nrraugement with the lititon. Piieiilc-tho ic-
quest of the Hock Island could not bo com
piled with and It would continue to turn the
freight over to the Union Paolllc for the
Hock Island.
To this the Hock Island mttillcd the Mis-
soun Pacillc that It would not receive any
freight so transmitted. Consequently the
nccnts of the Mlssour Pacillc have been no-
titled not to nccopt freight consigned to the
Hock Island nt Omaha.
There Is n neat question Involved in this
matter. If the position taken by the Hock
Island Is sustained It will cut off several dollars
lars from the revenues of the Union Pacillc.
It Is estimated that the bridge charges on
freight turned ever to the Hock Island by
the Missouri Pacllloliavo averaged ? l5,000por
annum. As an olTsut to this the Union Pacillc
has had the expense of handling the fieight
on the bridge , but the Hock Island could
handle It us cheaply as the Union Pnoillc
nnd Increase Its revenue by so doing.
The Milwaukee road Is in about the same
position but it is accepting freight at Council
liluffs under protest , whereas the Hock Is
land refuses to receive It o\copt on this side.

of the details for the advertising train
which it is proposed to run through the east
this fall in Nebraska's interests.
When the plan wa.s nt fir t proposed it was
u question nb to whether or not the funds
and proper amount of interest in the movo-

and each county in the list U now wanting to
