THE MOR7 J0 OREGOXIAN, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER So, 1907..
Wages of Journeymen Will Be
Reduced One Dollar
MEN THREATEN TO STRIKE
Two Hundred and Fifty Union Men
Who Will Be Affected by This
Order Will Keslst the Cut
Joined as One Man.
Any attempt on the part of the
Master Plumbers' Association to re
duce the wages of journeymen plumb
ers on the first of next month will be
resisted by the men affected. In fact
the men declare that they will resort
to a strike before they will submit to
any reduction in the present scale. The
employers ha-ve announced that be
ginning with January 1, next, the wage
of all plumbers employed in the city
will be reduced from $6 to $5 a day.
There are employed in this city 251
plumbers and, with but a very few ex
ceptions, every man belongs to the
union, which will act as a unit in
treating with the situation.
This announcement from the master
plumbers, following so closely after an
attempted reduction of $1 a day in the
pay of plasterers, Is accepted by mem
bers of the different trades unions in
this city to portend a concerted move
on the part of employers to disorganize
labor unions in the interest of a gen
eral movement to cut down the prevail
ing wage schedule in all departments.
It is contended by the union men that
the employers of labor played an active
part in precipitating the recent flurry
as an essential move to'the introduc
tion of reduced wages, confident that
if their present help refuse to continue
to work, no difficulty would be ex
perienced in replacing them altogether
from among the large number of work
men who have been discharged from
their former employment as the result
of the general policy of curtailing ex
penses recently announced by the rail
roads and the other large employers
Plumbers Well Organized.
Locally, the first indication that the
wage of laborers would be attacked
came when the master plasterers two
weeks ago announced a reduction of
ft a day in the wage of these trades
men. The result was that the men
Struck and the controversy was ad
justed by the men compromising with
a cut of 50 cents a day in their wages.
But the journeymen plumbers are more
strongly organized ana avow they will
not yield to the proposed cut in their
wages without a fight.
"Laborers cannot understand why
these advantages should be undertaken
by their employere when the contracts
under which they are working have all
been figured on at the present prevail
ing scale for the men," said a Journey
man plumber yesterday. "A cut of $1
a day In the wages paid Journeymen
simply means an appropriation of a
portion of the men's wages figured in
the contract. The plasterers yielded
to the selfish, demands of their em
ployers and are virtually contributing
50 cents a day per man to the profits
of the boss plasterer in addition to the
original profit resulting from the con
tract with the owner of the property.
"When the plumbers were granted
an increase in their wages from $5 to
J6 a day last March, it was with the
understanding that they were to con
tinue to work for $5 a day on all con
tracts then in progress and which had
been figured on a basis of $S a day.
This the plumbers have done and only
men employed on work that has been
contracted since have been receiving
the new wage of $6 a day, paying into
their union BO cents a day of their
wages. The funds so raised are con
verted into a 'jackpot' after the re
ported plan adopted by the State Med
ical Board and" apportioned among the
men 'Who are working on uncompleted
contracts at the old scale of $5 a day.
Work on practically all of the old con
tracts has been finished and the men
are now employed on jobs that were
taken by contractors since last March
on an estimated wage basis of $6 a
day. Now it is proposed to reduce the
wages of all plumbers $1 a day and
add that amount to the profits of the
"We do riot desire to appear to be
wrangling over what does not belong
to us, but we are willing to leave to a
disinterested public to decide whether
or not this Is a fair deal.
Says Strong Combine Exists.
"What is more, there exists a com
bination between the contractors find
the wholesalers by which it Is Impossi
ble for a man not on the inside to pur
chase plumbing supplies. Such a con
dition would prevent discharged union
men from engaging in the business on
their own account for the reason that
if the larger contractors insisted on the
observance by the wholesalers of their
agreement, the small dealer could not
continue in business, since he would
have no place to get his supplies."
A few of the contracting plumbers
in this city do not belong to the Mas
ter Plumbers' Association and it is not
known that they will follow the lead
of the organization in cutting wages.
"As far as I am concerned," said
A. Q. Rushlight, who employs several
plumbers, "I consider it is a serious
mistake to reduce the wages of work
men and I do not know that I shall do
so. The first intimation I had of a
threatened cut by employers in the
wages of these workmen was given
me by one of my men. The minute
you reduce the earning capacity of
laborers you strike a serious blow at
the prosperity of any community.
Nothing kills a town more than a gen
eral reduction in wages."
QUITS FIRE DEPARTMENT
Battalion Chief Holden Resigns
After 21 Years' Service.
After 21 years' service in the Portland
Fire Department. Battalion Chief Lee
Holden will leai the employ of the city
February 1, 1908. He quits the department
to take charge of the farm H. S. Rows
and he recently purchased at the toll
gate on the Mount Hood Road. Next
month he will move his household effects
to his new home.
Mr. Holden has been a useful man for
the Portland fire department, being a
practical architect and builder. All the
modern engine houses of the city were
designed by him and erected under his
supervision. These are No. 10. the Mac
adam road: No. 11, Powell and East Thir
teenth streets; No. 13, Grand avenue and
Multnomah streets: 15. Portland Heights,
Just finished; Sellwood. remodeled Into
an engine-house; Highland, remodeled
from a chemical into an engine-house;
Mississippi avenue, remodeled for a chern-
teal company; East Twenty-eighth and
Davis streets, new engine-house; Nos. 7
and 8, remodeled; No. 9, Sunnyslde, re
modeled building into an engine-house.
The architects' fees on these building
would have been fully $3000, which was
saved to the city, besides there was a
large saving in supervision. Except on
the new buildings, which were built by
contract, the city was out only the cost
of material, the firemen doing the work.
Mr. Holden leaves the department be
cause he believes he can do better for
himself and family. He has filed his
resignation, with one request: That the
horse he has driven to fires for many
years may be retired on a pension and
turned over to him to care for. ThU
horse, has nearly ended his days of use
fulness and Mr. Holden wants the pleas
ure of caring for, the faithful animal.
It Is not yet known who will succeed
Mr. Holden as battalion chief.
Offers of Charity Are
People Who Live In Scows on River
Spurn Gifts From Philanthropists
of ob. Hill.
SCOWTOWN and Nob Hill had a pas
sage at arms yesterday, ' Scowtown
throwing the defi to Nob Hill In a
manner which may have hurt the feelings
of some of the philanthropists of this
city's "400," and which, if It did not, cer
tainly surprised them regarding the con
ditions existing in Scowtown.
Scowtown, as everyone knows, is the
name of the wooden shacks afloat on the
waterfront, which, in a couple of places,
have collected In numbers large enough
to have given rise to the sobriquet Scow
town. It was supposed by several ladies
of wealth who reside on Nob Hill and
who did not care to be known as the
beneficiaries, that the residents of Scow
town were very poor and in sore need,
and actuated by generous impulse they
called up police headquarters yesterday
and asked Captain Moore if he would
kindly find out if there were any fami
lies in Scowtown who were in need of as
sistance and to let them, know as they
would take pleasure in providing Christ
mas cheer in the form of money and pro
visions. Captain Moore very obligingly
sent two or three officers whose beats
were near the river settlements to make
inquiry for dt serving families in need.
The tale brought back by the officers
came in the way of an unlooked-for and
"(Captain," said one of the men, "those
people down there don't need any help
and when we went a.-ound among them
looking for some one to whom to give
charity they laughed at us, saying they
had good warm home?, no rent to pay,
plenty to eat, lots of wcrk, and money in
the hank, and that th:y didn't want any
thing from Nob Hill or anywhere else
except the continuance of the jobs their
men held. Several of the houses we
went Into were well furnished and the oc
cupants live in comfortable style. They
have a boat which Is a veritable river
store and which visits them daily with
groceries, meats and vegetables and are
able to buy the best in the land If they
want it. The boat is a stern-wheeler
and has a sign on her marked "Gro
ceries." Inquiry developed that most of the resi
dents of Scowtown were working men,
such as longshoremen, mill hands, etc.,
who have steady jobs and earn for the
most part, good wages, and that contrary
to the general impression, Scowtown is
not populated with beggars and the pov
erty stricken. Captain Moore was com
pelled to Inform the society ladies that
their offer of Christmas gifts had been
CREST IS BELOW SALEM
Predicted That Willamette Will Be
gin to Subside After Today.
Unless the rain storms reported in
Southern Oregon yesterday were heavier
than seems likely, the Willamette- River
will gradually subside after today. It is
expected to linger around the 14-foot
level today. All smaller streams through
out the valley have been pouring un
usually large volumes of water into the
river during the past few days, bringing
the Willamette up with a rush. However,
the crest of the flood was below Salem
last night and is expected to reach Port
land today. Owing to the widening of
the river in the lower valley, the freshet
Is not expected to cause any damage.
The rains of the past few days have
been warm and have melted considerable
snow in the foothills.' This water has
poured into the Willamette through the
smaller tributary streams and helped
raise the river almost to the danger
Forecaster Beals, of the Weather Bu
reau, promises that the river will remain
about stationary today at Portland, when
it will commence to subside. He says
there is no reason to expect damage at
this point or in fact anywhere along the
river unless the storms in- Southern Ore
gon are much more serious than are re
ported. In that event the river will prob
ably rise again within three days.
Railroads throughout the Willamette
Valley are not affected by the high stage
of the Willamette, although the Portland
Railway, Light & Power Company Is
weighting down its tracks just above Ore
gon City by placing idle cars on the rails.
This will not affect traffic on the Oregon
City division, as the track in danger is
above that point. Minor damage by the
high water is reported up the valley.

FREXCH BARK HITS DREDGE
Marthe Roux Drifts Broadside Down
The French bark Marthe Roux. in tow
of the steamers Ocklahama and M. F.
Henderson, drifted broadside onto the
dredge Columbia, below the coal bunk
ers, yesterday morning, inflicting consid
erable damage on the dredge and staving
one of her own bulwark plates. The dam
age is not sufficient to hold the vessel
In port and the damage to the dredge has
not been determined.
The Marthe Roux finished loading Mon
day night at Montgomery dock No. 2, and
her agents ordered a boat to set her In
the stream at 7 o'clock yesterday morn
ing. The Ocklahama made fast to the
bark, which was headed down stream.
The Henderson had two lines on the bow
to steady her. There is a stiff current
in the river and quantities of drift are
running. A heavy timber got foul of
the wheel of the Ocklahama and jammed
her rudders. The tugboat and the bark
became unmanageable and drifted rapidly
down stream. The Henderson was not in
a position to hold them and had to slip
her lines in order to escape severe dam
age. The wheel of the Ocklahama was finally
cleared and the Marthe Roux was docked
at the Independent bunkers outside the
Eugene Schneider. The bark dented one
of her bulwark plates on the port side
amidships. The damage was only slight
and she will not be delayed, A survey
will be made today.
JOSEPH CARLSON IS DROWNED
Coalheaver Falls Overboard at Pa

Joseph Carlson, a coal heaver at the
Pacific Coast bunkers, fell overboard
from a barge yesterday afternoon at
3 o'clock and was Crowned. Several
men were working on the barge and
on the dock, but none of them can give
any account of the accident. Two
barges were laying outside the dock
and were receiving coal, which was to
be placed on board the steamship Costa
Rica at Ainsworth dock. Carlson was
one of the men engaged on the barge.
In some manner he went overboard.
Beyond his name and that he was a
married man and lived on the East
Side, little is known of Carlson. Sev

At a meeting of the special Council

strongly opposed to either site for an

the general belief that the committee
has now before it all the locations that
are likely to be proposed. Protests are
in against all the places so far named,
but it has been decided by the com

EVADES THE ISSUE
Council Committee Considers
Weinhard Brewery License.
MATTER GOES UP HIGHER
Flant Is Classified as Wholesaler
Under New Ordinance, Which Is
Recommended for Passage.
Will Force Vote on Floor.
The liquor-license committee of the
City Council . at its meeting yesterday
neatly sidestepped the question
whether it will be legal to license the
Weinhard Brewery in view of its
proximity to the Atkinson School. The
new ordinance defining liquor whole
salers and retailers was recom
mended for passage and among those
classed in the list of whole
salers Is the Weinhard establishment.
The next move will be to force the
issue in the Council as to whether a
license shall be granted, in view of the
charter provision prohibiting such
business within 400 feet of any school
house. Councilman Drlscoll was the only
member of the committee unfavorable
to classification of the Weinhard
Brewery and other similar establish
ments as wholesalers. He demanded a
minority report to the Council, when,
he declared, he will fight to defeat the
passage of the ordinance now recom
mended by the majority on the ground
that It Is unfair; that manufacturers,
as he terms the Weinhard plant, should
not be forced to pay the required sum
of $100 a quarter, but should only pay
a manufacturers' license.
Incidentally, Minor Lewis, owner of
the Armory Canteen Saloon, over which
the controversy arose, was granted a
license, and It is announced that he
will move to a location just outside the
"dead line" surrounding the Atkinson
School. He will, by this move, avoid
losing his patronage, will be in the
same vicinity and has thus settled all
question as to the legality of granting
him a license.
The question as to the Weinhard
Brewery, however. Is not settled by
any means, and bids fair to create all
kinds of trouble. Nor that the estab
lishment has been recommended by the
committee for classification in the
wholesale list, it will, If this report is
adopted, be forced to seek a license.
This will bring the issue squarely be
fore the Council.

formed the members of the liquor

the Weinhard Brewery is clearly within

which Is said to show that there is a
plan under way for the brewery con
cern to buy the school property, which
is for sale, thus eliminating all legal
obstacles and leaving the brewery
where it now stands.
One feature of the new ordinance

Different doctors have different ideas in re
gard to cures. Some call a suppression of
symptoms a cure. They dose for drug effects
and claim that nothing more can be done.
But the real ailment remains, and will bring
the symptoms back again, perhaps the same as
before, or perhaps modified in some manner.
I claim 'Jhat nothing less than complete
eradication of disease can be a real cure. I
treat to remove the disease and not merely the
symptoms. I search out every root and fiber
of an ailment, and I cure to stay cured.
In no other ailment peculiar to men
is a prompt and thorough cure so es
sential. Contracted disorders tend
to work backward until the most
vital nerve centers become involved
in the inflammation. Then follows a
chronic stage that stubbornly resists
all ordinary treatment. Safety de
mends that every vestige of infec
tion be eradicated at the earliest
possible moment. My treatment is
thorough. The remedies employed
have a more positive action than has
ever before been attained, and so
perfect Is my method of application
that even chronic cases yield com
pletely. P. M. and 7 P. M. to 9 P. M. Sundays,

The Leading; Specialist
This most prevalent of all diseases
of men is also the most neglected,
either through dread of the harsh
methods of treatment commonly em
ployed, or through ignorance of the
grave dangers that accompany the
disease. As varicocele interferes
directly with the circulation and
process of waste and repair through
out the generative organs, the ne
cessity of a prompt and thorough
cure cannot be too forcibly em
phasized. I cure varicocele in one
week by an absolutely painless pro
cess. My cures are thorough and
absolutely permanent, and arc ac
compl;shed without the use of knife,
ligature or caustic.
