unload their shipments promptly. About
5000 cars of freight are now waiting to

charge on unloaded cars from $1 to $10

ILL NOT RETIRE
Congressman Uttlefield Still Wants
LABOR UNIONS AFTER HIM
Maine Representative is Marked For
Slaughter by Labor Union and is
Fighting Them Have Him on
Their "Black List."
WASHINGTON. July 24 (Special
Some little while ago we were re
galed with the story that Congressman
Littlcfield of Maine had determined to
follow the example of that other son of
Maine, Thomas B. Reed, and retire from
Congress to practice law in New York.
ne would not stand for re-election, the
story ran and there were elaborate de
tails of bis plans for the legal conquest
of the metropolis. Mr. Littlefield did not
confirm the story nor did he deny it
At least, the denial never overtook the
original tale. '
And yet we find Mr. Littlefield fighting
tooth and nail up in Maine to prevent
the very thing for which he was said to
languish, 1, e., retirement from the
nouse of Representatives. The labor
union have him on their "black list"
and are said to have injected a good deal
of ginger into the contest.
Even with election day yet far re
moved, the situation became so alarm'
ing that Mr. Littlefield set up a Mace
donian cry for help, more particularly
the help of Speaker Joseph Cannon, who
also is under the ban of labor. Mr. Can
non heard the cry, and responded with
a note of aymnaty. He will do all he can
to save the scalp of Littlefield.
This is about the first return we have
from the campaign organized labor an
nounced it was going to wage against
those members of Congress whose rec
ords and promises did not square them
selves with the demands of the Ameri
can Federation of Lobor. Credit has been
claimed for the failure of a couple of
minor men to secure renominatiens, but
in all these cases factional fights cut
more figure than the labor unions.
The case of Mr. Littlefield in Maine
and the contests at other points where
the unions have set out to defeat promi
nent men will be watched with' interest
by politcians of all parties. If the
unions make good by defeating any con
siderable number of the men they have
marked for slaughter, there will be a new
force in American politics and one that
must be reckoned with under all cir
cumstances. It may come to Jass that
no man will dare become a candidate for
office in their land of liberty unless he
bears the O. K. mark of some walking

Nebraskan Says Amendment is Aimed

LONDON, July 24 William J. Bryan'
proposed rider to the model arbitration
treaty was discussed at a session of the
International Council of the Inter
Parliamentary Union this morning, and
resulted in its being recast, as follows:
"If a disagreement should arise which
is not included in those to be submitted
to arbitration, the contracting parties
shall not resort to any act of hostility
before they separately or jointly invite,
a the case may necessitate, the forma
tion of an international commission of
inquiry or mediation of one or more
friendly powers, this requisition to take
place, in necessary, to accordance with
Article VIH of The Hague convention,
providing for a peaceful settlement of
On the resumption of the sessions of
the conference today the above was
unanimously adopted after speeches by
former Austrian Minister of Commerce
von Plener and Mr. Bryan, warmly sup
porting the amended rider. The latter
said that his amendment was aimed at
widening the scope of arbitration so as
to include questions of national honor,
the chances being a hundred to one that
the proposed investigation of facts would
also settle any question of national hon
or. If the hand of war could be stayed
till the conscience awakened, wars would
become more remote. The amendment,
therefore, was a long step in the direc-
tion of peace. Mr. Bryan's speech was
brief but eloquent, and aroused much
enthusiasm among the delegates.
BRYAN FAVORS D0UMA.
Says He Was Sorry to See Parliament
Dissolved by Emperor.
NEW YORK, July 24. A cable dis
patch to a morning paper from London,
W. J. Bryan said yesterday that hs
was sorry to see the Douma dissolved.
Premier Campbell-Bannerman had hap
pily expressed the situation when he
paraphrased the old saying: "The Douma
is dead, long live the Douma," meaning
that whatever may happen to the per-
sonnel of the Douma, as an institution
it still lives. Mr. Bryan added:
"I am satisfied there will be no back
ward steps whatever thje Czar may
attempt to do. . The recognition of the
right of the people to self-government
cannot be undone. I believe the Czar
made a great mistake in ordering the
dissolution. From my observation ' the
members of the Douma are men with
purposes and possessing ample qualifi
cations to deal with the necessities of
The Czar should have
treated with the Douma."
Mr. Bryan insists that the visit of
Colonel M. C. Wetraore of St. Louis,
was not for the purpose of inducing him
to give up the idea of returning to the
United States by way of New York, ne
said he would stick to his original itin
erary. Mr. Wetmore will return with
