We want good men to come back, and we'll see that they are pros perous." Mr. Burt and Mr. Dickinson bad just been asked If the etrlke which formally began yeaterday morning waa complete over the system when a telegram waa brought In and given to Mr. Dickinson. It was from Evanaton, Wyo., and said that the machinists and helpers In the shops there refused to obey the order Issued yesterday morning and were still at work. "That looks like a break In the ranks of the strikers," waa suggested. "Yes, and do you know," replied Presi dent Burt, "that right here In our Omahn shops we have forty-three men at work? I gueaa you hal never heard of that, had you? Well. It is fact, for Mr. Dickinson, Mr. McKeen and myself have Just returned from there, were there since this strike was supposed to have been Issued at 10 o'clock and we found these men at work and highly pleased ao far as we could tell." Mr1. Dickinson, confirming the statement made by Mr. McKeen Saturday and pub lished In The Bee, aleo stated that the com pany has enough men In all Us shops to perform all necessary work. "The toad baa not Buffered In any depart ment, nor do w apprehend any suffering from this strike," he said. No Sew Men Hired. "Has the company taken any steps to fill the placea made vacant by the atrlkera and those who were discharged?" waa asked the officials. "Well, as to that I don't know that we care to speak," waa President Burt's reply. "But," said Mr. Dickinson, "It may be said that no men have been hired or im ported, and In fact no definite action taken." "What do you think will be the outcome of this strike?" was asked President Burt. He answered It by asking: "What do you think?'' During the period of the Interview an other telegram was handed to General Man ager Dickinson. It came from Cheyenne and brought Information that a bollermaker named Carlson, who refused to Join the strikers, had been assaulted on his way boms from the shops. From a tabulated statement of the differ ent acalea of wages paid by the varloua western railroads to their shopmen, boiler makers snd machinists In particular, It Is evident that the Union Pacific pays the highest of any road except the Southern Pacific. In many caaes It Is far In excess of other roads. BEATS LAST JfEAR'S RECORD Hearly Sis Hand red Omaha and Soath : Omaha Men Already In ' Ak-Sar-Ben.

Have Refused to Walk Out UNION LEADER IS NOT DISAPPOINTED Vice President Wilson Hays It Will Take Several Days to Oet ilea la laaller Places Or aalsed. The strike of the Union Pacific ma chinists, which was formally declared at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, did not atart out with the vtra that was anticipated and before night had received some-serious blows. The strike Is not complete. At Evsnston the men refused to quit work, st Ofeen River they voted not to go out and at Rawlins four of the thirteen orig- nai number remslned at work. But the meet vital setback to the strik ers cams at Cheyenne, where the least dis couragement had been looked for, as only few days sgo ths eompsny discharged all Its men sod closed Its shops. At 6:30 p. m., when the whistle blew, there were about ISO mechanics on the eompsny's pay roll snd it Is reported that the company will Increase this number. Reports from Cheyenne Indicate little hopefulness for ths strikers. The belief is thst the tleup will, fall, as the majority of machinists are said to be favorable to the piece-work system, by which they be lieve tbey csn earn more money than under the daily-wage scale. Communications were opened up with the various divisions by the company authori ses, aa well as the strikers and through out the day both sides were in close touch with the entire field of operations. Each fsctlon was claiming a victory up to ast night. The strikers declare they have no doubt of the outcome, while the company sure the strike will be settled in its favor becsuse, as it holds, It la in the right. Armstrong Dlapated Territory. Armstrong Is a disputed territory. Ad vices to the company officials during the day were to the effect that only half the men there had gone out: This being one of the three largest places on the system, the officials found special encouragement In the situation there. Upon the other hand the strikers at 6 o'clock last evening were claiming Armstrong. A representative of the machinists stated that word had come that all the machinists and helpers at Arm strong hsd quit. The only two machinists at the Council Bluffs roundhouse, and also two at the trsnsfer shops there, are said to have truck early In the day. The men at Grand Island had not quit and there was no sign of their quitting up to noon, according to reports received st headquarters. President Burt and General Manager Dickinson both stated Jhat they did not look for the men in the smaller places to co-operate with the rest of the strikers. They believe that they will remain at work and thua tho backbone of th strike be seriously weakened. Cempsay Claims Eassgh Men. The claim of the official le, as expressed by President Burt himself, that the com pany has enough "men" at every station on the road to carry on tb necessary work, In the Omaha shops, where tie striker claim a complete shut-down. President Burt says there are forty-three men at work and that there la no Indication of further trouble. Neither the officials nor the strike leaders would yesterday venture to approximate the total number now out. "It la the first day of the strike," said Vice President Wilson, "snd too early to make statements of thst kind. Aa a mat ter of fact we are not disappointed that the strike-is not complete the first dsy, for It will take time to get all the men In the smaller places organized and In line, but they will come In all right." Aa these men In th smaller towns own their homes In a Urge number of esses and would be forced to leave If they quit work the company maintains that there la no serloue probability of their Joining the strikers. r The bollermakers are not doing much at present, but claim to be thoroughly organ ized and well prepared to endure the atrlke for an Indefinite time. Boilermaker Oat. President Kennedy of the Boilermakers' union saya there ara three bollermakers at work on the Union Pacific system, two at Armstrong and one at Council Bluffs He ssys two nonunion- men who are at work at Denver have. gone out and this statement Is corroborated by General Man ager Dickinson of the Union Pacific. Mr. Dickinson, however, says that there are still two men left la the Denver shops. The csr builders ara at work and there II no appelant sign of dissatisfaction among them. Neither is there any evident possibility of the trainmen striking. Mar Oo Beyond I'nloa Faelle, A strike leader said last night- that If necessary the fight would be carried be yond th Union Paciflo to the Southern Pa cific and embrace all the Harrlman lines. James O'Connell of Washington, th preel dent of the international organisation, will be In Omaha July 7, and If by that time some settlement hss not been made or In sight he will. It Is thought, take steps to spread the strike. There is some doubt as to whether the men will be successful In enlisting the sympathy snd co-operation of the machinists and bollermakers on the other lines. Th officials scout at tb idea. Vice President Wilson mads this state ment yesterday: The international organization has put Its business agents to work In all cities of the country from th Atlsntlo to th Paciflo to see that non-union machinists ars not being employed to fill the strikers' places. A diligent watch will be kept on the entire field and In this way we will be prepared to thwart any attempt to sup plant the men who have gon out." New Men Worklaa; at Cheyenne, CHEYENNE. Wyo., June JO. (Special Telegram.) Th atrlke situation this aft ernoon took an unexpected turn and from present indications it Is believed the move ment will fall through. Shortly after din ner th company commenced to put on new men aa fast as they applied for work and when the whistle blew -at 8 : 10 there wer about 150 men on the shop payroll, as against twenty-five or thirty after th lock out last week. It is stated tonight that ths eompsny will Increase the force " at this point as rapidly as the men can be engaged until a sufficient number to man the shops and' take care of the repair and overhauling work hss been secured. The piece-work plan . of operating the machln shops will, however, prevail and thoss who go to work do ao with this un derstandlng. A prominent machinist said tonight that he believed the strike would fall through all over the system for the reason that the batter class sf machinists ars in favor of th. piece-work plan, as they can make more money than under the straight-salary plan. Ths chief objectors to ths piece work, be said, are those men wbe Ilk t put la -their time with aa little work aa possibls and who haven't the snap to make a good thing by rustling under the piece-work plen. The machinists say tonight only tbre of their number ar at werk at thla point. Th men ar aanguin of winning. A fore of men is fitting up on of th shop a lodging aouae, presumably for th msa that are to be engaged. Cots and bunks ars being put In snd arrangements will be made to hoard the men. It Is said that four Plnkertons bsve been sent here. GREEN RlVER,Wyo.. June 0. (Special Telegram.) None of the machinists em ployed her went on a atrlke today. They voted to remain at work. EVANSTON.

Judge Robinson was Informed that the department was waiting fof Agent Mat thewson's recommendstlon as' to when all should be paid. In rlew, however, of harges which have been made against the agent of the Omaha and Winnebago sgency and the further fact that the report of the pedal inspector sent to investigate the charges had not . been received, It wss thought that no action would be taken In the matter until the charges had been dis posed of.

With final ad journment probable tomorrow, the house worked under high pressure from noon today until far Into the night. As a pre liminary several resolutions were adopted to grease the legislative wheels. The rule providing for the printing of conference reports before conslderstlon was suspended until the end of the session and a resolu tion was adopted making a motion to sus pend the rules in order st sny time. The bouse then got down to business. Tho conference report on tho Philippine civil government bill, which Is considered the lsst obstacle in the way of adjourn ment, was adopted by a strict party vote, with the single exception of Mr. McCall of Massachusetts, who voted with the demo crats, A partial report on the general deficiency appropriation bill waa adopted and after a prolonged fight the house, by a vote of 118 to 101 sdopted the senate amend ment to appropriate $r00,000 for the Buffalo exposition and sent the bill back to con ference. The senate amendmenta to ap propriate $160,000 for the Charleston and $1,000,000 to pay the Hawaiian flre-bubonlo plague awards were defeated, the former by a vote of "1 to 118. At the night aes alon, however, the amount was appropriated for Charleston. A number of billa were passed under suspension of the rules, In cluding the senate Mils to sllot lands in the Cherokee nation, and to provide cor poration laws for Alaska. At the evening session the Dick militia bill, which ts to be used as a stop-gap for the remainder of the session while the house Is waiting tor conference reports, was taken up. The adjournment resolution Is to be withheld until the conference report on the Philip pine bill is adopted by the senate. Vote Aid to nnfTnln. The house met at 11 o'clock today. Mr. Payne of New York, the majority leader, asked unanimous consent that the Hepburn rule requiring the printing of conference reports in the record before consideration should be suspended for the remainder of the session. To this Mr. Richardson, the minority leader, objected. Mr. Cannon ot Illinois, chairman of the appropriation committee, called up the conference report on the general deficiency bill. The report left in dispute items ag gregating $1,905,000, Including the appro priations for the Buffalo and Charleston expositions and $1,000,000 for the payment of Hawaiian claims. The report was adopted. Mr. Canon moved that the house further Insist and ask for a further conference. Mr. Alexander of New York asked for a separate vote on the appropriation of $750,- 000 for the Buffalo exposition; Mr. Finley of South Carolina for one on the appropri ation of $160,000 for the Charleston exposi tion; Mr. Burton of Ohio upon th ap propriation of $25,000 for the Improve ment of the Ohio river from Cairo to Mound City, and Mr. Cannon himself upon the appropriation ot, $1,000,000 for the pay ment ot Hawaiian claims. . Mr. Alexsnder made a strong plea In favor of concurrence in the senate Buffalo exposition amendment. He declared that the success of the exposition was aasured wnen me assassination or. president aic- Ktnley occurred. In previous expositions, he said, the receipts in September increased over those of August &5 per cent. At Buf falo the receipts decreased 7 per cent after the assassination ot President McKlnley. . Messrs. Tawney of Minnesota, chairman of the committee on expositions; Mr. Foster of Illinois, Mr. Morris of Minnesota. Mr. McClellan ot New York, Mr. Sulzer of New York and Mr. Groavenor of Ohio supported Mr. Alexander's motion, Mr.' Grosvenor said be waived every technical and legal objec tion to the appropriation. Coming from Ohio he bowed bis head to the argument ot Mr. Alexander. In opposition to the motion Mr. Heming way of Indiana said if he believed the as sassination of President McKlnley had caused the deficit at Buffalo he would vote for it, Mr. Alexander' motion to concur in tb Buffalo exposition amendment was carried 118 to 101. Charleston Gets Help. Mr. Finley of South Carolina then entered his motion to concur in the Charleston ex position amendment. "If the members will give me an ays and nay vote," said Mr. Cannon, "I am willing to vote now. I want to see whether the New York members will keep faith with their South Carolina friends." "I desire a few minutes," said Mr. Fin ley. "My people are greatly Interested In this matter." "Debate is unnecessary," observed Mr. Cannon, "It you have made your deal." (Laughter.) "When the people of South Carolina in augurated a movement for an exposition," Mr. Finley said, "they believed Charleston would be treated by congress as other cities had been. They were entitled to $350,000. They obtained only $90,000. The appro priation of $160,000 in the senate amend ment would give tbem what they should have had originally." Mr. Cannon spoke sarcastically of ths "cohesive force of public plunder." He had lived to see the day when th state of John C. Calhoun, the champion of state's rights, come In here snd struck bands with New York to get through th New York appropriation. Mr. FLnley's motion was lost 71 to 118. At the night session the bouse receded Its action and the amount was allowed.
