I10.000.000 F
-Bell Telephone System and As
sociate Interests to Re
ward Loyalty.
Old Age, Infirmity and Life Insur
ance Feature In Comprehensive
Project Affecting: Army of
2 50,000 Workers.
Effective January 1. next, according
to an announcement by President Vail
yesterday, a fund of 10.000 000 for
pensions, sick benefits and life Insur
ance will be available for the 1. 5.000
employes of the Bell Telephone syste m
and associated Interests and their fami
lies and dependents, amounting alto
gether to more than 250.000 peop'- In
cluded in this number are JMOO em
ployes of the Western Union Telegraph
Company. The annual M'
on this account will exceed $1,000 000.
In the plan that has been devised
President Vail has provided combined
benefits for superannuation, sickness,
accident and death, for an industrial
army more than twice as large -s the
standing army of the United btates.
This provision Is made entirely at the
expense of the various companies In
terested, without contributions of any
kind from the employes themselvM.
The application of these varied benefits
will be strictly democratic and will be
for the benefit of all employes of every
rank. The plan will provide for free
change of employment from one com
pany to another, with full credit for
combined term of service.
Superannuation Aae 60.
Summarized, the terms by which pro
visions are made for the needs of age,
illness, accidents and death, follow:
Male employes who have reached the
age of 0 years and who have been -0
rears or more In service may retire on
pensions. They may be retired at the
option of the company when they have
reached the age of 55 years and have
been 15 years or more in service. The
pension age of female employes is in
each case five years younger than that
of male employes. Any employe who
has been 30 years in service, regardless
of age, may be pensioned on the ap
proval of the president of the com
pany. The amount of the pension is auto
matically based oh the years of service
and the amount of pay. and will be
1 per cent of the average annual pay
for 10 years, multiplied by the number
of years of sen-ice. Therefore a man
who had been 30 years in service would
get 30 per cent of the average salary
which he had been receiving during his
last 10 years of service. No pension
will be less than 20 a month.
Accident Innurnace Provided.
In the case of accidents occurring in
and due to the performance of work
for the company, the employe will re
ceive for total disability full pay for 13
weeks and half pay for the remainder
of disability up to six years.
If the disability is temporary he will
receive full pay for 13 weeks and half
pay until able to earn a livelihood, not
exceeding six years.
Employe who are disabled by sick
ness or accident outside of the regu
lar course of duty after ten years ot(
more in service, will receive full pay
for 13 weeks and half pay for 39
weeks; If from five, to ten years in
service, full pay for 13 weeks and half
pay for 13 weeks; if from two to five
years in service, full pay for four
weeks and half pay for nine weeks.
In the case of employee who have not
been two years in service, heads of de
partments will be permitted the same
discretion as heretofore in continuing
pay during temporary illness.
Life Insurance la Feature.
In the case of death resulting from
arcident In and due to the perform
' ance of work for the company, an in
surance amounting to three years' pay
will be paid to the dependents of the
employes, the maximum payment being
J5000. In the case of death resulting
from sickness or from accident outside
the business, the payment will be one
year's pay for employes who have been
ten years or more in service, and one
half of one year's pay for employes
who have been from five to ten years
in service, the maximum payment be
ing $2000.
President Vail first made mention of
the pension plan last March. It was
the first step in the effort of the West
ern Union Company to give expression
of the company's appreciation of loyal
and efficient service to employes. The
above designated new plan secures to
the 30.000 employes of this company
from January 1 next a much more com
prehensive and liberal arrangement In
regard to benefits than originally an
nounced. Lean May Be Made.
With the added protection and the
arrangement by which Western Union
employes may obtain advances on sal
aries without interest, already in ef
fect, the employes of this company are
guarded against unfortunate circum
stances. "The assistance to be rendered em
ployes and their families under the
plan devised by President Vail will
amount to a considerable sura annual
lv." said W. J. Phillips, division conv
mercial superintendent of the Pacific
Telephone & Telegraph Company, yes
terday. "The Pacific Company's terri
tory Includes the states of California,
Nevada. Oregon. ashington and
Northern Idaho. The total number of
employes in this territory and affect
ed by this voluntary action on the part
of the company is 13,485. Of this num
ber, 42i.$ are in the northern division
vf the company's territory Oregon,
Washington and Northern Idaho. Port
land Is headquarters for this territory
and 114a employes are located here.
"Not only will employes feel grateful
to their employer, the Pacific Company,
but to the parent company, the Ameri
can Telephone & Telegraph Company,
through whose initiative, interest and
support, together wtih the encourage
ment and indorsement of the associated
companies, the execution of the plan
has been made possible.

Two accidents were reported yester
day In the fleet of the Port of Fort-
land. The tugr Star lost her propeller,
and a discharge pipe In the hold of the
dredge Portland burst, putting her out
of commission temporarily.
The Star, which is under lease to the
Port because It has not been deter
mined to have another tender built for
the new dredge Willamette, was tow
ing a barge of fuel to the Willamette,
moored at Slaughter's, and -as she
"rounded to" alongside the digger her
wheel dropped. It Is supposed that she
broke her shaft, because the propeller
was known to have been fastened se
curely when she was out of water re
cently. The steamer Ocklahama was
sent to tow the Star to St. Johns last
night, and she will be lifted on the
drydock today. The pipe that broke in
the Portland's hold was known lo be
weak, because it had worn from the
constant pumping of sand and gravel
through it, but recently it had been
reinforced, with the hope that it would
last during the present season. For
tunately a section of old pipe was
available, and the repairs will be fin
ished so she can resume today. The
Portland is at La Due's.

pleasure in thanking you for what your

had bearing down
pains, was dizzy and
weak, had pains in

Clean pots and pans
Germs of decay accumulate
on oft-used pots and pans, and
ordinary soap and water only
cleans off the surface.
Gold Dost does the work
and does it right. It digs deep
after germs, cleans like a
flash, and leaves your pots
and pans as bright as the
day they were new and san-
iiaruy suits. t
Gold Dust does this work in
just half the time required by
soap or any other cleanser.
Does it better, too.
Geld DllSt cleans everything ,
like magic.
