53-DAY WAGE LAW DIES
AMENDMENT BY COISCIL rRACTI
CALLY BBPE.ILS MEASIRE.
Mr. Daly'a Plan to Force Municipal
Contractors to Pay Minimum Scale
Being Torn Asunder.
Commissioner Daly's minimum wage
ordinance which was passed by the
Council early this year to force all
municipal contractors to pay a mini
mum wage of $3 a day to laborers, now
lies in the Council archives suffering
from the merciless extraction of its
vitals by the same body that brought
it into existence.
The Council upon recommendation of
City Attorney LaRoche yesterday
amended the ordinance by taking out
the provision making it applicable to
street and sewer contracts. Inasmuch
as these contracts were about all that
was affected by the measure in the first
place, the amendment means virtually
the repeal of the entire measure.
The purpose of the amendment was
to prevent the City Council from get
ting into financial troubles with prop
erty owners by forcing the property-
owners to pay more than the going
wage for workmen. It is held that the
Council is merely the agent of the
property owner and has no right to
force the owner to pay excessive rates
for services performed.
Two contracts have been awarded
under the provisions of the ordinance.
These furnish grounds for a test of the
validity of the ordinance, according to
Mr. LaRoche. He says there is a grave
question as to the validity of the
measure and therefoje the possibility
of the Council getting into deep water
by letting the measure stand with its
teeth still in.
A large number of bids have been
opened for street and sewer work and
the contracts have been awarded but
not formally signed. In these cases
the Council decided yesterday that the
contractors can take their chances with
the contracts- if they desire. If they
do not wish to take a chance on the
ordinance being held invalid they can
go ahead with their work as soon as
the contracts are signed.
Since the enactment of the ordinance,
the low bidders on sewer work have
for the most part been Syrians and
Italians. These classes organize into
partnerships and do their own con
tracting and their own work. Each
workman being a party to the contract
and no labor being employed, the aliens
can underbid the white contractors be
cause they do not have to pay . the

Opportunities for American industry
to take advantage of the present sit

William Conger Morgan, professor of
chemistry at Reed College, in an ad
dress before the Rotary Club at its
weekly luncheon at the Benson Hotel.
I. M. Walker was chairman of the day.
At the luncheon next Tuesday, which
will be known as floral day. Queen
Sybil Baker, of the Rose Festival, and
her princesses and maids will attend.
Professor Morgan's subject was "Re
lations of Chemical Industry as Re
vealed by the War." He told first of the
organization of the whole business life
of Germany and its close relation to the
government. One business, he said, , fits
into another, so there is a close co
ordination and absence of waste and
loet motion. Many businesses are tin
der the direct control of the govern
ment, which prescribes the regulations
of industry, said the speaker.
"The German monopoly In the manu
facture of potassium salts makes it Im
possible for anyone in this country to
compete in that industry," he said.
"'We can go inlo the dye business, if it
is worth while, or we can put our
money Into other thirgs that pay better
