Paper Co.. statoa laat night that
tbo Increase In wages In tho
three big paper companies would
amount to 75,000 per year,
which Is a great increase In the
Oregon City payroll. All L75
.men will receive $2, and the shift
men who have been receiving 22
will average $2.28. going on the
hourly basis, which means that
on the day shifts of 11 dours tbe
wage will be $2.09 per day, and
on the night shift of 12 hours the
scale will be $2.37.
The various Oregon City paper mills
will, this morning, voluntarily put Into
effect a scale of wages higher than
ever before paid on this. Coast for
like employment, notwithstanding the
fact that their competitors In other
statea on the Coast and in the Middle
West are paying less In every depart
ment than the rate heretofore In ef
fect amount to.
The manager of the Willamette
Company states that hla people have
been working out many plane In thla
connection, among tbem being a Home
Building Association and an Immense
general merchandise store, but as tbe
merchants of the city through their
associations will no doubt do every
thing within their power to bring
about honest dealing, weights and
measures, upon the part of a few who
In the past are stated to have raised
prices whenever the men have re
ceived higher wagea; he has atated
to the Enterprise representative that
nothing will be done In the laat men
tioned matter, at Ira at for the present,
although auch a proposition, he
claims, would save considerable to the
Thla new scale of wage amounts tn
many Instances, especially to the low
er paid help, to an Increase ofover
14 per cent and will bring Joy to the
homes of many families. -
The men can oe depended upon to
show their appreciation of tho efforts
made In their behalf for more efficient
and manly fellows cannot be found In
any other paper milling district, and
the managers of all the mills here
are of one voice when It come to
recommending their employes for hon
esty, fairmlndednesa, sobriety anJ
high moral character. Besides this
the nature of their work keeps tbem
In proper trim at all times for most
any kind of athletics. Sickness, there
fore, very seldom bothers those reg
ularly employed, a very good sign, al
so, of proper sanitary conditions In
and about the nlanta here, and It is
renorted that there are a number of

prove their physical condition by
meeting In the squared circle or on
the mat. In the morning after the long
ahlft, those who have Been fit to atate
that they are on tne verge oi mo
The hours of labor and shift work
will. In future, be 11 hours days and
12 hours nights, and, as all will be
paid on an hourly basis all will be
happy. With this scale or wages ano
with the work being done and already
completed for the prevention of acci
dents, the mills In Oregon City, not
withstanding the unsatisfactory adver
tising our city and county received
during tho last legislature are, accord
ing to the reports of the Labor Com
missioner, In better shape than ever
and -the conditions satisfactory to ev
en the most exacting.
The Commercial Club, In all Ha lit
erature, contlnuea to recommend the
mills, and rightly, to people looking
West for opportunities In the way of
employment, and It will not be long
before the effects of proper and truth

WORK OF IMPROO
PROPERTY HOLDERS NOT ALL
AGREED AS TO WHAT SHOULD
- BE DONE. . ' '
The work of Improving Jefferson
street Is under way and excavating Is
going on at the Intersection with Sev
enth street near tbe Presbyterian
church. 1 he street Is to b Inaeroved
from Third atreet on th south to
Twelfth treet on the north.
At Seventh street there la a deep
cut to make and when the City Engi
neer planned it the purpose was to
run the street on a level from Eighth
to Ninth and make a raise In running
from Eighth to tbe alley to the south
of two feet and a half. Thla would
require a flll-ln In front of W. A.
Whlte'a realdence to which he ob
Mr. White aay that th thing to do
la to run on th level from Eighth to
Ninth atreet, aa now planned, and
than drop to th Seventh atreet level
by an easy grade. But to raise t
feet to the alley between Eighth and
Seventh Just to get a chance to drop
further In running to Seventh, he can
not aee good and sufficient reason for.
Why make the raise when there mnst
bo a drop to get to Seventh, and the
more you rats the more you must
It Is said that those who use the al
ley are tbe people wishing the raise
made, ' and that it would make Jt a
more easy matter to use th alley.
But on the other hand tbe claim Is
made that the raise In the alley would "
detract from other conditions toVa
greater extent than the benefits could
tn any way compensate for.
Mr. White Is willing that the rals
be made In tbe street to get to the
alley, tf all parties want It provided
there is no attempt to fill the atreet
in front of hla bouse.
Messrs. W. A., White, C. Bchuebel,
James Roake and .Will Howell are a
commute named by property holders '
on the street to look after the Inter
ests of all those living on the street,
and while they are divided aa to Just ;
what ought to be don there I good
reason to' think that they will tak .
this matter up and agree aa to what
la best for all concerned and then
seek to get that Incorporated In the
Improvement The present City Engi
neer seem to agree with tho who
contend that It la wise to run the
street on a level from Eighth to Ninth
streets, and then drop It gradually to
the Seventh atreet level without refer
