South Omaha packing house managers , After n conference yesterday afternoon , de cided on Ifntilng an ultimatum to the strik ing employes. ThU Is , that unless the men return to their places at the old wages by Monday morning they will bo absolutely dis charged , nntl then the houses will bo manned with entirely new forces. The managers are confident they would have no great dlfilculty In securing new men. They say they arc receiving apllca- tlons from men who want work In Iowa and Nebraska and that they can get all they want. want.While While the strikers In the main seem to 1)0 ) standing firm , a large number are nnxlous to have the differences settled nt once , and some of them say that If an agree ment IB not reached soon they will go back to work any how. It Is expected that the committees sent to Chicago , St. Louis and Kansas City will report some time this forenoon. A meeting has been celled for 10 o'clock sharp this morning , when the report from the special committee will bo read. There were fully 1,000 men at the meeting last night. Clip pings from newspapers were read and speeches urging the men to stand by their rights wuro delivered by a number of the men. men.A large number of special pollco have been sworn In by the city , pickers and stock yards company. Sheriff Drexel has not sent down any deputies , but sent some men who .Vt'ero sworn In as special pollco. YESTERDAY AT THE HOUSES. At all the packing houses yesterday every thing was quiet. A few new men have been put to work , but the packers are still run ning very light forces In the hope of being Able to Induce the old men to come back. "Wo will wait until noon today on the old men , " sold Mr. Cudahy , "and If they do not como back to work .by that tlmo we will have to get new men to fill the places. " "In case the men agree to cancel the par agraph In their proposition which reads that they will not go to work until the grievances are settled In Chicago , Kansas City and St. Louis , would the packers be apt to accept the scale of wages submitted by the men ? " was asked by the reporter. "No , " said Mr. Cudahy. "We are paying Chicago wages now and that Is all we can Rtand. The men who come back will have to go to work at the same wages they wore getting when they \vent out. I am told that X great many of the men want to como back but are afraid to do so. Several of them have admitted to mo that they have no grievance whatever. It was our Intention to begin killIng - Ing hogs at 9 o'clock this morning , but word was sent over here to wait until noon , when it was moro than llkclv that some of the old men would go to work. " At the Hammond plant 200 cattle were Hilled and about SOO hogs. Eight cars of hogs were loaded to be shipped out and five cars of cattlo. The manager said that word had been sent to him that some of the old men wanted to come back and would do so , but they did not care to go Into the plant when the gang that was out was watching them. About twenty new men were put to work here. One man came down from Omaha with a dozen men. He left his gang In the suburbs and went Into the housa and made arrangements for the balance. The gang then split up and entered the place one at a time Ih order to avoid the strikers. "We. have been receiving appli cations from men who want work from Iowa and from small towns throughout Ne braska. In fact , the country Is full of unemployed men , and wo can got all we want. It Is true that It Is not an easy matter to secure skilled workmen at once , but wo had to teach the gang that has gone out , and wo can teach another gang just as easily as wo did them , " A few moro men went out at Swift's yes terday , but Manager Foster said he was killIng - Ing both hogs and cattle just the same. "Some new men have been put to work , " said Mr. Foster , "and If the old men do not comeback back pretty soon we are liable to run out of patlcnco and put men on who are willing to accept our pay. I am not particularly alarmed about any trouble , but ono thing is absolutely certain , and that Is If there is any law to protect our property and the men who want to work I propcso to see that It Is enforced. The men that I have talked with tell me they have no grievance. That some of them want to come back , but . they are afraid to do so. I v.111 protect our property and the men under any and all circumstances. " When asked If any of the hog butchers intended going back to work , ono of the union men who works In that department said that the rumor was false. "There will not be a single man go back If we can keep them , " said he , "by reasonable argument or influence. " Notleo by the ( ] . II. Hammond Company , All the employes of the G. H.

OLOF BERGSTROM'S ' DIVORCE TROUBLES * Allege * Hint III * Wife Wai Addicted to tlio Vlowlni ; Howl unit Was it Source of Unhiippliienii anil Kxpennu Other Court Caici. The celebrated divorce case of Ilergstrom against Uergstrom has taken another turn In the district court. Yesterday Olaf Uergstrom filed his answer and cross bill , In which he alleges that the numerous allc- gat.ons made by Mrs. Dcrgstrom In her pe tition are absolutely false , and tells a story of the plaintiff's wrong doings that rivals the charges made by licr when she had her Inning. The Uergstrom case has been regarded with some Interest , as Olaf Uergstrom Is one of the most prominent Swedes In Ne braska. Years .ago ho wa < a ( Baptist preacher at Mollnc , III. , but that life grew wearisome and he came west and went Into the land bus ness In connection with the Union Pacific railroad. He founded the town of Gothcnbcrg In Dawson county , and fcr a good many years owned most of the village. Ho also went Into the Swedish colonization business , and located a number of settle ments of his countrymen In this country. When going to Sweden after settlers It was his custom to hire a brass band and take It With him across the water , paying all ex- pcnscu , and thus making an Imposing ap pearance on the other side. He was fairly prosperous In these undertakings and ac cumulated propsrty valued at $200,000. On July 7 his wife , Elizabeth , filed a peti tion for divorce In the district court In this county. She alleged that Olaf had been unduly Intimate with the flowing bowl and had also taken advantage of his abscnc ; In the old country to supplant the caresses of his wlfo with those who had no legal right to receive them. On July 14 Judge Walton made an order In the case by which Olaf was directed to pay $100 alimony Into court for the benefit of his wife within ten days. At the expi ration of nine days Mrs. Bergstrom's attor neys went before Judge Scott and obtained a writ of no exeat regna on the represen tation that Bergstrom was about to leave the state to avoid the order of Judge Walton. Bergstrom was pretty smart , however , and the sheriff was unable to flnd him , so the writ has never been served. In the cross bill filed yesterday Olaf alleges that his wife has been a habitual drunkard for ten years past. On their wed ding day he took her to his home at Goth- enberg , and she had no sooner arrived than she sent for beer and whisky and proceeded to accumulate a glorious Jag In honor of the occasion. Before the marriage Elizabeth was a sort of Swedish prlma donna , and after the ex piration of two weeks of their honeymoon she started out on a series of concert tours which she kept up for two years , while Olaf stayed at homo and supplied the money to nil the vacuum In the financial side of the project. Olaf states that during these trips she drank to excess , and was even at times so Intoxicated that she was unable to go on the stage. He denies all the charges made In the petition , and firther alleges that his wife has been so violent for years that he has been unable to live with her , and has al ways provided her with money , which she has spent for booze and In the society of other men. According to his statements she has spent most of his property , and now he thinks that the least the court can do Is to release him from the bonds that have been a burden for many years. They \Vnht Divorces. A razor , " -toge'her with a lack of conjugal affection , Is what has destroyed the marital happiness of John and Angelina Plowman. At least that Is what Angelina claims , and she has appealed to the district court to pro vide her with a divorce and her maiden name. She asserts that within a year or two after their marriage her husband became so violent that she was compelled to.leave him for fear of bodily harm , and that In his frenzied moods ho Invariably got his razor with the apparent purpose of carving her Into submission. Minna Getz asks for a divorce from her husband , John Getz. She alleges cruelty and desertion as sufficient reasons why she should be free. John J. Hanlghan has brought suit against J. Herbert McCloster for $1,100.49 , Seven hundred and fifty dollars of this amount Is claimed as due on promissory .notes and the remainder for services performed. Probate SI alters. The quibbles over the Byron Reed estate which have been on the dockets of the county court for a long time past have been amicably settled. All claims have teen satisfied and the case withdrawn from the docket. Margaret V. Oliver has filed a c'alm ' of $15,000 against the estate of the late Augustus Kountze. This Is on account of some subscriptions to the stock of a western company which she alleges have never been paid up. Fine sandy bottom at Courtland. Clan Gordon. Notice.

Kln- kald's men held together to the very last , and the Judge was defeated only because the entire field was arrayed against him. On the thirty-sixth ballot Dorrlngton's men went over to Daugherty almost In a body , and many of St. Rayner's delegates followed them. On the final ballot Daugherty re ceived ninety-nine and one-half votes. The half vote gave him the nomination.
