hour's pay was stirred up by I. W. W.
followers who got into the service.

ply of wood from the woodyards for
the unemployed will be stored at
Twenty-seventh and Savier streets un
til the wood dealers are forced to
abandon their present price-slashing
programme, which is said to be a con
certed effort on the part of the larger
dealers to embarrass the city. Com
missioner Brewster announced this
plan of procedure yesterday after in
vestigating the proposition of reduced
"I think we can beat them at
their own game," said Commissioner
Brewster yesterday. "It is sure that
the city cannot sell Its 10,000 cords of
wood for $4.50 or $4.75 a cord and
make anything or even break even
on the cost of production and trans
portation and I do not believe the
dealers can sell at these prices either:
Price Catting Is Welcomed.
"Personally I am glad to see the
price cutting because it does not fol
low that the city will be embarrassed
with its supply of wood, which we
have hope of selling to raise money
for use in the camps for the unem
ployed next Winter.
If our going into the retail busi
ness will bring the wood prices down
the public will benefit. It will be as
great a benefit as we should expect
because It will enable the users to get
wood at prices considerably lower
than the city could furnish it.
"As far as our wood is concerned
we do not hope to make anything out
of it. We hope to get our money out
of it. If we cannot sell without a loss
now we can hold the wood until we
can get a better price for it."
Hauling Contract la Ip Today.
At the City Council meeting today
the proposition of a contract for haul
ing the city's wood from the wood
yards near Linnton to Twenty-seventh
and Savier streets will be considered.
If a contract is agreed upon the haul
ing of the wood will be started at once.
In almost every part of the city the
wood dealers have announced cuts In
prices. First-class wood which up to
a short time ago has sold at retail at
from $5 to $6 a cord is now being of
fered at $4.50 and $4.75 a cord.
This the dealers say is the best of
first-growth fir. It is said that the
present prices are only temporary,
price increases being planned for
two or three months hence.
