ScrveM Xodco that the WIIKC < AKrce- niout IN IlelitKViolated. . A rumble of Impending trouble with or ganized labor was heard at the meeting ot the executive committee yesterday after noon , 'When a formal notice was received from the officers of the ( Building Trades council announcing that at the last meeting of the council a resolution was adopted de claring that the exposition management had violated the agreement with organized labor by employing laborers to do carpenter work and paying electrical workers less than the union scale. The exposition officials were notified that unless action was taken within forty-eight hours to right these alleged grievances the iBulldlng Trades council would take action under Its rules. This matter was referred to a special committee , consisting of Managers Klrkcn- dall and Rosewater and President Wattles , to confer with the committee of the .Build ing Trades council and report upon the situa tion and the remedy which should be adopted. The grievance of the iBulldlng Trades council Is understood to bo that laborers are employed by the electrical construction bureau to make rough uoard boxes to bo used for underground conduits for electric wires. It 'being ' claimed that this work Should bo done by carpenters at the regular scale. Another alleged cause for complaint Is that Superintendent Rustln of the elec trical bureau Is employing men to do elec trical work and compelling them to work ten hours for $2.50 per day , whereas It Is claimed that the union scale calls for eight hours' work at 30 cents per hour. Certain of the exposition officials say , con cerning tbo last named grievance , that at the time , when the exposition decided to pay the union scale of wages the schedule sub mitted by the representatives of organized labor did not contain any mention ot elec trical workers , and It Is claimed that the Electrical Workers' union was not In exis tence at that time. It is further stated by these same officials that Inquiry among the electric construction companies reveals that $2.50 per day Is more than waa paid by them for labor at the time the exposition direc tory fixed the scale of wages. In addition to considering this matter the executive committee was presented with a request from the Woman's Board of Mana gers , asking to bo given the control of the main ccurt for two hours on a date to bo afterward fixed , the women desiring to work up a great celebration In honor ot the Inau- sura'.lon of work on the Girls' and Boys' building. They proposed to have a short program of exercises. In honor of the occasion , consisting of speeches by two or three well known men and speaking by three young people , one to bo chosen by the schools of Omaip. another by the schools of South Omaha and the third by the schools ot Lin coln. The program Included a grand march about the grand court behind a brass band , with Ilizh scboal cadets as marshals to ECO that the youngsters kept In line. The women proposed to turn a neat little sum of money Into the building fund by charging each child 10 cents for a vote for the speakers , the 10 cents to pay for a ticket to the Grounds. The Rates were also to be turned over to the women , according to the proposi tion , and In this way a considerable sum was expected to be realized. The executive committee thought the cle ment of danger In this scheme was too. great to consent to It. however , and the request of the women was denied. Plans were ordered drawn for the Trans portation warehouse and work on them will bo pushed and the building erected at once. The structure will be 60x100 feet and will stand on the north tract cat of the Trans portation building. Will Xot I'mthe Den.

Mercer has written to President Wattles regarding securing from the War department the tents necessary for the military encampment which Is to be maintained In connection with the exposi tion. It Is proposed to equip the camp grounds with tents and various other neces saries and an effort Is being made to Induce the War department to loan the exposition the necessary tents for the occasion. Mr. Mercer writes that the matter can probably be arrange ! He says Assistant Secretary of War 'Melklcjohn has taken hold of the matter and the prospect for securing the tenta IB promising. Mr. Mercer also writes concerning the projected special trains from Washington to Omaha for bringing to the exposition on the opening day the Washington correspondent * of the great metropolitan newspapers and the members of both houses of congress. The congressman says that E. C.

Mr. Mercer says he Is lending the movement all the assistance In his power and believes ll Is the best move that could possi bly bo made. Ho sayn that Washlngtcu Is the tcmpsrary homo of the brightest and brainiest newspaper men lu the world , and they are cuihustaitlc over the Idea of making such a trip to Omaha under such circumstances , and have made many Inquiries regarding the mat ter. Mr. Mercer declares that such a move would be Uie beet advertisement Kiat the ex position could possibly secure , and he urge * that nothing bo left undone to carry It to a successful Ifiiue. Assistant Secretary of War Mclklejohn urged this same matter upco the exposition officials when ho wai In Omaha and empha sized very strongly the great advantage thti exposition would derive from the widespread advcrtUemrnt given the opening ot the great show In all the big papers of the country.

Secretary Campbell of the Nebraska Exposition - position commission Is greatly annoyed by reports which are being circulated by un known partita to the effect that the Nebraska commission Is charging for exhibit space In the Nebraska building en the bluff tract. Mi1. Campbell wants It distinctly understood that no exhibits are allowed in the Nebraka building under any circumstances and con sequently no charge can be made for space In the building for exhibit ? . The building la Intended solely for social functions and to serve as headquarters for Ncbraskacs and such others as desire to avail themselves of Nebraska's hospitality. The Nebraska Hia- torlcal society cad the owner pf the extensive collection of Indian curies gathered by the lats General Crook have been given soaco In the building In which to exhibit the rare End curious articles comprising these collections , but these are in the nature of decorations rather than exhibits la the ordinary sense. With these exceptions no exhibits will be allowed In the building.

CiOVKIlXOIl IJJKDY HEADY TO ACT. KIIIIKIIH CninmlKNlnii Will He N'nmril < i in Mnmliiy. Governor Lccdy of Kansas has at last given pcaltlvo and dciflnlto assurance that ho will name an exposition commission for that state and announced that fact to the Department of 'Publicity ' and Promotion by telegraph yesterday oa followu : Tim Kansas commlflon at the Omaha ex position will bo appointed next Mon1ayv J. 'W. L123D\ ! . The governor baa said all along tbit ho would appoint a commission a.s scon as ho had assurances that a sufficient amount of money would be forthcoming to enable the state -to participate In u creditable man ner. After considerable agitation of the subject three Kansas rallroacU agreed to contribute $3,000 each , making $15,000 , pro vided the citizens of Kanoas would raise a like amount. Governor Lcedy refused to not , however , urftll ilo knew that the money would "bo' .forthcoming from both sides and his pertlr.uclty In this respect has "prevented the appointment of a commis sion. It Is presumed 'that the money has been raised or 'thAt the governor has posi tive evidence that 'It will bo forthcoming at the proper timeor , ne would not have made the announcement contained In the telegram heretofore' quoted. I mm Sriint % ' A 'llon. President Wattles received a telegram from Senator Puspy 4of Council Bluffs , a member of the upper house of the Iowa leg islature , announcing" that the senate had pissed the exposition bill appropriating $20- 00 } additional for Iowa's participation In the exposition. i ' This will necessitate returning the bill to the house for concurrence , that body having passed the bill with an appropriation of $30- 000. The friends of the measure hope to have U'P amount Increased to $25,000 before the lilt finally becomes a law , Iowa has already appropriated $10,000 for participation In the exposition , the last leg islature having made a preliminary appro priation of thU amount. The Iowa Exposi tion commission appealed to the legislature at the beginning of the session to make an appropriation of $47,400 in order to enable the commission to erect a suitable building on the exposition grounds and make a cred itable showing. ei Coiuiiiiinlon Co ml UK , A committee representing the Tennessee Exposition commission will arrive la Omaha at an early hour this morning to Inspect the exposition grounda and make proper ar rangements fur participation In th greet show by tfielr state. This committee consists o ! Jcin T. Essary , chairman of the commission ; W. T. Davis , secretary , and Theodore Cooley of Nashville. The visitors will be taken In charge by Major T. S. Clarkson soon after their ar rival and will bo escorted to the exposition grounds and to the headquarters in the Paxton block. At noon they will be entertained at luncheon by President Wattles. Dr. Wi-lib Iiiforinii New York. Dr. W. Seward Webb , the member of the New York Exposition commission who was In Omaha last Sunday , at which time ho visited tuo exposition grounds. Has kept his promise to advertise tde exposition as soon aa he re turned home. In an Interview appearing In the New York Herald ho praUes the Trans- ral'-slralppl Exposition to the skies and de clares In unequivocal terms that Now York must certainly be represented In no mean manner. Ho urges the legislature to appro priate an amount sufficient to enable the com- mkalon appointed by Governor Dlack to make a creditable showing. Denver CnminlHMtnn' * Work. The canvatulng committee of the Denver Exposition commission Is meeting with the most flattering success In Its efforts to raise $6.000 required to erect a cty ! building and make a good exhibit of Denver's resourcca. Subscriptions have been received from the most unexpected sources und the committee raised $4,000 with llttlo or no effort before the work wau well started. A plan Is now under consideration for erecting a much larger and liner building than was llrst contemplated. Te\n Contribute * iv Ileanty. The photographs .of the representative beauties of the transmlsslsslppl states still continue to come to Manager Llndsey of the Department of Ways and Means for use In making the composite photograph which Is to represent the embodiment of the beauty of the entire west. The latest acquisition Is the portrait of Miss Ida May Archer of Austin , Tex. , whose photograph has been forwarded to New York to be Included In the composite photograph for the exposition medal. Dulutli In Comluc. The people of Duluth and St. Louis county , Minnesota , are making preparations for an exhibit showing the resources of the country around Duluth. They have raised the county's quota of Uio fund for a etato exhibit , anl have now taken up ttie work of making a county exhibit. The local members of the Minnesota commission have taken charge of the matter and have asked the people of that ftoctlon + o bring In their suggestions OB to the form of the exhibit. Oiinril * to Ciimii Hero. The St. Louis Republic says there Is a move among the members ot the Missouri National guard In the northwestern part of the state to have the encampment ot the Second regiment held at Omaha and to In duce the guards In other sections of the state to join lu this movement. All plans for holding the annual encampment at St. Joseph have been abandoned and the project to camp it Omaha during the exposition Is meeting with strong favor. rJInrlninl' Stale I'nrtlolimtlnn. A bill appropriating $3,400 for state partici pation In the exposition Is pending In the Maryland legislature. The Baltimore Ameri can says that It state participation Is de- tlrablo a much larger amount should be appropriated. This Is the balance that was left from the appropriation made for tl'.u World's fair , and the American suggests that rover a 1 times this amount should beset set aside In order that the etato may bo well represented.
