WOO LEX MILL STRIKE
CeUbrated With a Jollification
In Canemah Park.
The woolen mill strike ia over.
The calliope thistle, which makea a
noise something akin to the combina
tion of tl e bray of jackass and the
wail of a ooomed soul in "hades,"
belched forth Its fiendish yelU at an
early hour Tuesday morning.
They were welcome yells, however,
for it was a call for 300 people to return
to their work at the woolen mills, a sig
nal that the wheels of industry were
about to whizz at the old stand, and
the workpeople were to receive an ad
vance in wages.
A committee of the local Federal Un
ion, consisting of J. II. Howard, E. D.
OWs and A.. J. Maville had been wrest
ling with a settlement proposition since
1 10 o'clock, Sunday forenoon, and it was
about 3 o'clock Monday afternoon, when
! the committee accompanied by M . L.
! Miller, of the Textile Workers' Union,
! and Mayor ii. B. Dimick, effected a fl
j nal settlement, and the contract was
i duly signed.
! The new wage schedule provides for
' an average advance of about 13 per cent.
I The annual payroll of the mill amounts
! to about ISU.UOU, and the new wawe
scale will probably bring it up to $93,
000. The compromise wage scale is
about 63 per rent of the amount oriel
nally demanded by the strikers. The
union is recognized, but non-union em-
nloves will be permitted to work. b,v

A mass meeting had been called to
be held at Canemab park Monday night,
which was probably intended to be sort
of an indignation meetiDg on account of
the mills having refused to recognize
the union. However, when a settle

change the gathering into a jollifica
tion meeting. The vooamen eana lea

Chamberlain and State Candi
dates Hold Meetings at Mo- t
lalla and Oregon City.
Last Friday was a great day for the
democrats of Clackamas county. En
thusiastic meetings wern held at both
Molallaand Oregon City. The rainy
weather prevented the previously-ar
ranged picnic at Mollalla, ana the meet
ing was held in the hall, which was
crowded to its utmost capacity, Wil
liam Vaugban, a democratic pioneer of
1842, was chairman of the meeting. An
excellent basket luncheon was served
by the people of that section. Speeches
were made by George E. Chamberlain,
Colonel James H. Raley, W. A. Wann,
James K. Weatherford and others.
The speakers a ere received with the
greatest enthusiasm. Among the Ore

The meeting at Oregon City in the
armory in the evening was an ovation
to the Democratic state candidates. It
was probably the largest democratic
mass meeting held in during the his
tory of Oregon City. Colonel Robert
A. Miller was chairman of the meeting,
and he introduced Mr. Chamberlain as
the next governor of Oregon. Mr,
Chamberlain charged the present ad'
minUtration with official extravagance,
and declared that when be is elected no
perquisites of office will be allowed;
that he will recommend flat salaries for
all offices and that whatever! the oppo
sition may say he cannot be charged
with anything crooked in bis ofhcial ca
