PUBLIC MEETING" CALLED FOR
TONIGHT TO DISCUSS
DIMICK REQUESTED TO BE PRESENT
Paper Companies Intimate Propoaad
Law Would Be Followed By
More Foreign Labor and
Tbe I hour labor bill Introduced In
trre-atate senate by Senator W. A. Dim
Ick promises to provoke an Interesting
discussion In this city tonlghf at a
public meeting to be held at the Com
merclal Club at 7:30 o'clock. Tbe
IJve Wlrea Informally talked over the
proposed measure at tbelr weekly
luncheon yeaterday and the auggea-
tlon that a meeting of everyone Inter
est id be held met with the unanlmoua
approval of thoee present.
There see ma to be a wide difference
of opinion over tbe merlta of the bill.
lie framer la said to. have promised
the laboring men of Oregon City to do
bla utmost to aecure the passage of an
S hour law, providing be waa elected
to the atate senate, and there la no
doubt that Mr. 1)1 mirk received scores
of votea because of bla position rela
tive to the queatlon during the cam
paign laat Fall. It la evident that
Senator DlmMc beltevea It la up to
him to try to make good hla ante-election
promisee, for he can consistently
take no other course. The bill now la
In the hands of the aenate committee
on labor Industries, of which Mr Dim
Ick la a member, and may be reported
to the aenate thla week. If It Is
passed by that branch of the legisla
ture It will then go to tbe house.
The measure provides that no em
ploye of a concern operating 22 hour
a day or more ahall work more than
eight boura In any one day of 24 houra,
and It la generally considered to be
aimed at the paper mill Induatry and
none other. In Oregon there are four
paper companies, three at Oregon City,
employing 1000 men, and one at Leba
non where nearly all of fbe employes
and all of the bualneaa men algned a
protest against the bill, and aent lt to
Senator M. A. Miller of IJnn County,
at Salem, laat Monday by apeclal met
aenger. 1 Officials of the paper mllle here
make their position very plain. TKcy
aay the bill la pure clats legislation,
that the paper mllla should not be
alngled out for attack, and tbat the bill
would not be constitutional, for It
takea away the personal liberty of tbe
laboring man and doea not permit blm
to work more than eight houra. no
matter what may be hla desire. - The
Willamette Pulp A Paper Co. provides
employment for C.10 men, and laat
month the wagea averaged $70 per
man. II. T. McRaln, of this corpora
tion, atatea that If the company operat
ed three shift a, Inatead of two, that
the annual payroll would be Increaaed
by $168,000 If the preaent minimum
wage of $2 a day waa maintained,
which, he aaya, would be utterly ont
of the question. He also calls the at
tention of the bualneaa men of Oregon
City to the fact that It la now lm-
possible to aecure dwelling houses for
the married men who come here In
search of employment; that the com
pany Is therefore unable to employ
this class of workmen and la forced to
hire foreigners who live Id and 15 In a
house, and are a very undesirable
class of cltltens.
It la strongly Intimated that If the
paper mills are forced onto an 8 hour
basla. In competition with the Wash
ington mills, which run two shifts,
tbat wages will be cut to meet the al
tered conditions, and this would re
sult In more foreign labor being em
ployed here than under present con
ditions. This, In fact, la the main
queatlon that la agitating the minds of
the bualneaa men, and It Is likely that
the meeting tonight will be well at
tended by representatives of all claas-
Senator Dlmlck has been Invited to
be at the meeting and preaent hia
arguments for the enactment of the
proposed law. Paper mill representa
tives will alao be there, and a free

ent ana Mayor llrownell in the chair.
Recorder Btlpp read communications
from the City Engineer relative to he
condition of tbe Madison street bridge,
the flooding of Center street, sewer
on Twelfth street and other matter
of Interest. His report on Madison
street- bridge was to the effect that
tbe middle bent wss badly damaged
hut that It had been repaired so that
pedestrlsns might use It with safety
and teama within a day or two.
Diacusslon In Council Indicated that
the Engineer had gone ahead on his
own Initiative, not Just In accord with
past precedents, bat It was agreed
that In tbe present Instance it may
have been an opportune turning aside
from, regular precedent.
Engineer's report Indicated that
sewer on Twelfth street Is too small
hence the trouble that ended In the
destruction of the sewer and much
filth deposited In low placea in that
neighborhood. Eighteen Inch sever
recommended. Referred to committee
on streets for consideration and report
back to Council.
The extension of Twelfth afreet to
the river, with alight changes In grade,
reported favorably on by the Engineer.
At this stage of the proceedings the
question aa to whether the Engineer
or atreet committee of Council be re
quired to look after theae matters was
up for discussion. Finally agreed It
was wise to let Engineer examine and
report but Council to have last rec
ommendation. The hiring of Harry
Jones to fix Madison bridge not ac
cording to past plana but as cost waa
under $100 might be permissible.
Mr. Holmsn thought It wise to let
Engineer have more latitude but aug
gested that he give bond of $10,000.
Mayor and others of same mind and
resolution passed asking Engineer, for
bond of $10,000 and city stana expense.
Question of altitudes from watr

that Engineer take levels from river

CLUB STILL PUSHING.
Editor Enterprise: Tou will kindly,
through your valuable paper, allow me
to answer an article appearing In Mon.
day morning's Oregonlan with refer
ence to people having Joined the Puih
Club In Newberg. I do not wish to
say anything harsh, nor to criticize
the people of Newberg In any way,
ahape or manner, but would like to see
everything with reference to the
bridge at Butteville, or Newberg. to be
on the square, and as there were mis
ststements In this article and no name
aigned to the same, I wish to state the
plain facts, which are these:
All but six or seven of the members
of the Trl-County Push Club In New.
berg signed a card pledging them
selves to support the bridge at Butte
ville not more than two months ago.
and the sidewalk that they apeak of in I
this article was built a year ago. They
did not contribute In any way, shape or
form to thia sidewalk.' AU but two or
three were taken into the club aa
honorary members, for the reasons
that they were in a position to help
the club In advocating and procuring
the bridge at Butteville, and I wish to
say farther that all of the members
from Newberg are Intelligent business
men, and a club card was laid before
them which they read and signed their
nsmes thereto, and the pledge each
took was this: "We want the bridge
at Butteville and I pledge my support
to thla enterprise." t
