Will Mill Workers Make Demands for
The Federal Labor Union was in ses
sion last Monday evening. The meeting
was called for the purpose of discussing
the prorosed demand (or a raipe in wages
and shorter hours for the workers in the
paper mills. Nothing was given out for
publication regarding the meeting, save
that no steps will be taken toward secur
ing the proposed increase of wages be
fore May 1. Just what demand will be
made by the men at that time is mere
speculation, but f i om the best informa
tionable it is believed that the men will
ask for a straight ten hour day, and that
the night workers shall receive so much
per hour for theii work. Asthesitua'
tion now is, night laborers who work
from half past five or six o'clock in the
evening until seven o'clock in the morn
ing, receive the same compensation that
they do for working from seven in the
morning till half past five or six in the
afternoon, I) is generally conceded that
the mill workers will not make any ex
orbitant demands, and it is generally be
lieved that their demands will be grant'
ed without a strike.
One reason for the postponement of
the demand for the changed condition
of affairs is that Saperintende.it Lang is
away on a vacation and nothing could
be done until he returns towards mak
ing a change. Mot all of the paper
mill workers are members of any union,
not even the Federal Union, and it is
considered doubtful if a general strike
was ordered if any great number would
walkout. It is conceded on all sides,
however, that nothing could be fairer
titan that the men should be paid so
much per hour, and that they are en
titled to more wages for working four
teen hours than they sre for working
ten. All business men in town are ex
tremely anxious that the matter of wages
should be adjusted without any trouble,
as a strike would inj'ire business

Albany, April 11, 1903
The watchwardof the unterrifled hosts
of democracy which assembled in this
city to-day was harmony. There was
gooa leeitng on every Bide and not a
word was said to mar the love feast
among all of the democrats of the dis
trict or to stir up strife or feeling. The
predominating idea was to get together
and naue a candidate and write a plat
form so br. al and generous that all
honest men could stand upon it.
To one who has been through ths bit
ter internecine party fights of the last
half dozen years, who has seen demo
crai ngai aemocrats and the party
wrecaea :anu torn asunder it was good
to eee all democrats, old and young
once more getting together and all pull
ing in tne same direction. There were
old men in the gathering who have been
fighting for the fa!th for more than fifty
years ana boys who have cast but a
single vote all animated with only one
purpose and seeking one end.
The convention itself was of brief dur

A permanent congressional committee
from this district was appointed of
which C. N. Waite, of Oanby, was
ma le a msmber from this countv.
, The nomination ot Mr. Ream was a
very fortunate one and wan exceedingly
well accepted by the delegates present,
and they were all present with two ex
ceptions. Mr. Reams Is a young man , and a man
o? splendid ability. He is very popular
wherever known and his scquaintence is
very extensive especially in the South
ern part of the state. He is a f on-in-law
of the late Congression Tongue. He
is a fine speaker, a man of good address
and impresses one as an honest fellow.
He ie a native Oregonian and loves his
state and its people.
While the district is Republican by
more than two thousand majority on a
strict partv vote, Herman's vu nerable
record and the dissatiefaction of Republi
cans ingeneial, and the exceptionable
ability of Reams and his clean manly
record will no doubt bring him under
the wire a winner. The delegates to
the convention went their several ways
promising to make the fight of their
lives to elect a congressman from the
first Oregon district in the person of
Hon. A. E. Reams.
