MEAT CUTTERS WORK (Continued from First rage.) the union held a ..long and enthusiastic meeting at which it wss resolved to stand firm on the original ultimatum of Sunday not to handle work from unfair houses: Firmness, however, wss not monopolised by the union, as the proprietors' association determined to keep up Its end of the fight and did not recede from the position taken Sunday to close down "every laundry In the city until the owners were allowed to run their planta as they pleased. The hotels and such restaurants as opened hav made arrangements generally to do their own laundry work. Some of the ho tels have done this all along, while oth ers are equipped and the only difficulty they will encounter will be in securing la bor. The personal linen of traveling men and others at the hotels was not moved and the. guest s were told that there was no means of knowing when it would be waahed In Omaha. Haberdasher and furn ishing house men went over their stocks of neglige shirts wltM : attached collars and cuffs and prepared to order more should a heavy demand set In, as Is probable If the laundries remain long closed. So far as could be learned yesterday no Omaha washing was sent out of town; Available Lanndry Facilities. A laundry plant that seems to have been overlooked somewhat is that operated at the Convent of the Good Shepherd by the Catholic sisters. Th plant Is quite a large one and capable of extension. Several ho tels have decided to send, their linen there until the strike Is settled. President Ward low declares that the Good Shepherd laun dry will be placed on the unfair list, how ever. If any work of unfair houses is per formed there, notwithstanding the fact that the Institution Is charitable In Its character. Of course, he admits, there Is no way of reaching the employes. Tha proprietors of the Garrett laundry. which Is a new concern of small capacity, have agreed t6 accept' no unfair laundry. ' At the Henshaw hotel It was stated that no trouble waa anticipated In having the table and bed linen washed, as it would be sent to the Good Shepherd laundry. The Her Grand hotej. has a plant of Its own and will not be inconvenienced by the lockout. At the Merchanta all the equipment is ready for doing the work, but employes had not been secured yesterday. The Pacific Hotel company, which operate all the eat ing houses run in .connection with the Union Paclflo railway stations, will not be hit hard by the lockout, a th concern formerly did It own-. washing. Several months ago for reasons of economy a plan of gathering up all the waahlng along the line and having it done In Omaha was in augurated, but It will be a simple matter to put the old equipment In use again. Promts of Relief. No man in Omaha need wear' a dirty shirt next week," was the announcement made last night by President Wardlow of the Laundry Workers' union. He declined to say how the feat of cleansing Omaha's colled linen with Only two steam and one hand laundry in operation would be per formed, but assured the reporters that ar rangements had been very nearly com pleted whereby It would be done, "It will not b by this union,"' he said, "but further than that I can say nothing. However, the people may have' clean' linen next week That much I am sure 'of.' No negotiations have been held, between the laundrymen's association and "the union toward reopening the laundries.

An order carefully prepared was presented, which followed the language of the complaint The Judges all objected to signing that order, and one Judge said that It contained matter which no Judge could have signed before granting a hearing. The order wnicn was issued was amended to suit the Judges, after conference with them lasting about two hours. The attorney for the ' restaurant men aald that so far as ta legal effect Is concerned the order signed Is all that was asked In the original, but that It has been mude more- specific, in places, notably Where 100 feet was specified In which cards bearing Intimidating printed matter may be handed out.

Beyond stationing pickets with cards at the nonunion house we are doing nothing here in Omaha because so long as the restaurant men are Inactive there ta nothing for us to do. At the .present rate of expense, we can keep up thla fight Indefinitely, as our benefits last week amount to only a little more than 125.

Th teamsters' Inten tion Is ta get them out of the city as soon as possible. They supply them with trans portation.

Torn from Work Readily. The teamsters seem to be havlna- very little trouble In pursuadlng these persjns to desert -the' transfer 'companies and turn their heads in the opposite, direction' from work. The result "was that Labor Temple hand the teamsters' headquarters on Fif. teentn sireei, near ioage, yesterday were about tne busiest places In the city. Throngs of men were there, striker and these gentlemen who had Juvt blown up from the south. Except for the' constant argumentative performances, common on such occasions and at such places, there was little demonstration. Chief Donahue up to noon had been able to land but two of the Missouri wayfarers. Sunday he got six, but they were released yeaterday when the Teamsters union agreed to send them out of the city. Most of tha newcomers are whites, though there are some colored ones. None of them ha to be fought away from work. The transfer companies were able yester day to revive their business consider ably. W. 8. Jardlne said his company put out thirty-three or thirty-four teams and others sent out more than usual. The Im ported men who go to work are distributed among the seven transfer companies. The result was that yesterday the wholesale and Jobbing districts presented the liveliest appearance since the strike began and the men went out Traffic was moving freely and ' without Interference.

Yesterday all persons who called to be appointed were asked If they were members of any union, and an af firmative answer barred them from ap pointment, x Many ot the discharged men took the action In good part saying that they only wer surprised to hav been appointed In the first plac and they laid down their stars with expressions of relief.'
