Portland, Aug. 14. Portland
Telegram: Two great corporations,
tbe Western Union and Postal Tel-
agraph companies, figuratively
speaking, the puloe of tbe business
world, are today engaged In a bitter
struggle with their thousands of em
nloves throughout tbe United States.
Not since the famous walkout of
tbe telegraphers in 1883, when al
most to a man every operator left
his key, have telegraph companies
been confronted with a condition
of affairs such as exists today,. In
1883 tbe operators lost. TbiB time
the balance appears to be in their
favor. Conditions today are not
what they were 25 years ago. At
the time of the tie-up in I883 the
public did not depend upon tbe tel
egraph to the extent that a complete
demoralization ot business occurr
ed, although much Inconvieace was
was felt in many districts.
In the present crisis the situation
is different. The rapid growth of
the country in the last two decades
has made the telegraph wire neces
sary adjunct to quick dispatch of
communications between every bus
iness firm and individual in the
United States and Cauada. The
telegraph has kept pace with the
spirit of the times and today a net
work of wires ey tends from every
metropolis touching every village
and hamlet from tbe Atlantic to
the Pacific and from the Gulf to
Alaska. The result of a complete
tieup of these wires has. caused al
most a total paralyzation of busi
ness. Stock markets, brokers, grain
exchanges, merchants and the pub
lic in general feel the blow which
suddenly takes them almost back
to the days when stage coaches and
oce train a day were the only
means of conveying communica
Tbe struggle that Is now engag
ing officials end labor unions over
the entire country began Match 1
as', when a ten per cent, advance
in wages was announced by both the
Western Union and Postal Tele
graph Companies. Thi was made
at a time when the Commercial
Telegraphers' Union of America
was making gnat- inroads among
tbe operators securing hundreds of
members with a view of presenting
their griev&ncts to 'he telegraph
companies v
Immediately following the ad
vance March 1 tbe operators alleged
that tbe advance was not impartial
ly given and a demand for further
concessions wes made which result
ed in a strike of Western Union op
erators in Oakland and San Fran
cisco being called by President
Small, ' of, the union, Jane 2I.
Through the intercession of Com.
Neilr, of tbe United States depart-
mi nt of labor, this strike was set
tled several weeks later.
The telegraphers bs-ert the companies-
agreed to re-employ all strik
ing men without discrimination
but tbe companies allege they agreed
to reemploy tbe strikers only on
conditions satisfactory to them
selvep. . ' '
A Western Union operator was
discharged at 1,03 Angelas last week
tbe caute being givm as insubordin
ation. Tbe entire Western Union
force walked out. Soon afterward
the L 6 Angeles Postal forces joined
in the movement.' An effort to com
pel tbe Chicago forces of both com
panies to work with nonunion men
at Los Angeles resulted in the Chi
cago offices striking. Within three
days the strike has extended
throughout the United States and
Canada, even to , the Associated
Press men, who were not to .take
an active part at least not at pres
ent. Telegraphers of Canada will re
fuse to iermit messages to be sent
to .different points in the United
States by dominion wires. All
mestaes sent to Canada points will
be received, whether the eenders be
union or nonunion men, but none
will be stnt out to other points in
the United States except such mer
es ges as have their origin in Do
minion territory. .
This, in substance, was the re
port made to the local branch of
the Commercial Telegraphers' Un
ion this morning at the meeting
held In Drew Hall. 162 Second
street, by William Burke, a strik
ing Western Union operator. He
asserted that the welcome news was
received this morning over the long
distance telephone.
"Discrimination" is the key note
of the forceful plant which the strik
ing t.legrapners of Portland lodge
againBt the Western Union and
Postal Telegraph Companies. They
emphasize in the strongest language
that tbe local strike is not a sytn
pathetic affair and that they have
gone out because they nave
ances of their own;

As Executrix ot the estate ot W. O. Trine, da
Portland, Aug. 14. Telegram:
Sampson Moody must cage his tame
pet rattlesnake Gyp, or take it to a
dentist and bave its fangs pulled.
This is the ultimatum that will be
given him this afternoon by Con
stable Lou Wagner, in person, and
in case tbe proud owner refuses to
take either oourse then the consta
ble has instructions to seize the
snake, bring it to town and have it
asphyxiated as a menace to public
safety. - -
For several days complaints have
been pouring in thick and fast to
the constable from neighbors of
Moody'e, on Columbia Slough, con
cerning the doings of the playful
Gyp. Moody, it seems, caught the
young snake two years ago, near
Mt. Adams, when it was hardly
big enouph to shake its rattlee. He
brought it home, fed it on skimmed
milk, and it grew so tame it would
drink out of bis hand. Every night
it coiled itself about the post at the
foot of Moody's bed and . went to
sleep, and on extra cold nights,
Moody took it right in uadet. tbe
covers. Sj the neighbors say.
Naturally, with such treatment,
the snake grew fearfully affection
ate. Neighbors say it roams all
around. Nobody knows when it
won't drop down on the table off
one of the rafters, grab a choice
morsel of meat, and climbed back
agnia, out, not. Knowing tne snKe
as Moody does, it makes them ner
Lately, however, GyD is said to
have become rather morose. Moody
told tbe neighbors that the reptile
is only cutting wisdom teeth, and
iil be all right in a short time,
but they have become so wrought
up over the affair, that they went
to the constable. The neighbors
insist that the reptilt'a teath must
be pulled. '
