POINT TO STRIKERS
Announcement Made North
west Has Agreed to Meet
. San Francisco Scale.
WILLAMETTE PUTS UP BAR
President Bowles Assures Men at
Work in His Plant That Agree
ment 'With Union Won't
Cost Any Their Places.
Nearly 500 mechanics, who have been
employed at the Northwest Steel Com
pany and the Willamette Iron & Steel
"Works and who now are out on strike,
attended a mass meeting- at Arlon Hall
yesterday afternoon to hear a report
of the committee of the Metal Trades
Council regarding' negotiations with the
Northwest Steel Company.
Arthur Burns, chairman of the meet
ing, announced that J. R. Bowles, presi
dent of the company, had agreed to
adopt the scale of wages similar to
that in effect at the Union Iron Works
at San Francisco. This concession was
made following a conference between
officials of the company and the Metal
Trades Council committee earlier In the
"The proposition made by Mr. Bowles
chows that we are making progress."
aid Chairman Burns. "It remains now
for you men to consider the matter,
and when you have reached a decision
you will be in position to submit a
Demands to Be Drafted.
It was decided that each of the vari
ous crafts affected should formulate its
definite demands and then convey the
results of their deliberations by spe
cial representatives to the committee
handling the strike. By this means the
committee expects to deal definitely
with the officials of the company.
The strikers still Insist on the adop
tion of the Seattle scale, which in some
cases provides for higher pay than the
scale in effect at the Union Iron Works.
One of the complaints against the
company that was aired at the meeting
was that workmen who were employed
on outside Jobs had no accommodations
for drying their clothes and that the
clothing often was wet on the follow
ing morning when the men reported
to work. Chairman Burns announced
that the company had agreed to pro
vide adequate dressing quarters and
other conveniences for the workmen.
Cpen-Sbop Attitude Retained.
While the committee representing the
strikers is still hopeful that a satis
factory agreement may be reached
soon, Mr. Bowles has not receded from
his position regarding the open shop.
His position in this matter was shown
In a letter which he sent to all em
ployes yesterday. The letter follows:
Notwithstanding our repeated statements
through the precs that we Intend to con
duct on open shop during the entire year of
1017, not a day passes wltnout some non
union man In our employ asking me -whether.
If the strike Is called off, the Jobs of the
son-union men are safe.
Therefore I wish to reiterate that every
man now in the employ or tnis company
will retain his position so long as he gives
loyal, efficient service, and no non-union
man will be discharged to make placs for
a union man. Further, In increasing the
force, we will not give preference toninlon
applicants, and again do we say that It is
entirely unnecessary for any non-union man
to Join a union, either to hold- his position
or to secure one with this company.
We do not intend to sign any contract
with any union, but we do Intend to ne
gotiate with a shop committee, to be se
lected from actual employes, for the purpose
of adjusting grievances as the same may
Fewer Men to Be TJsed. ,
Owing to the shortage of cars and the
closing down of a lot of steel mills we do
not expect any great amount of steel to
come in before March or April. Even though
the strike Is called off it would be im
possible to take back all of the men who
are now out, as we cannot possibly use. dur
ing the months of January and February, at
least, as large a crew as we were working
Union and non-union employes must work
side by side in a friendly American spirit,
and any disturbing factor, union or non
union, will be summarily dismissed.
we give this added assurance in order
that no old employe desiring to return to
work, will stay away longer for fear of not
being taken back and retained. Old em
ployes will be taken back, provided their
pieces nave not already been filled; and
this applies whether the strike Is settled
or wnetner it is not.
There were no new developments at
the Willamette Iron & Steel Company's
plant. President Ball said that more
men were being employed constantly
and that everything was running along
smoothly. The company still maintains
that it will conduct its plant on an
open-shop basis. Workmen who are
out on strike who failed to return to
work yesterday were definitely consid
ered as no longer employes of the

PULLMAN CHAMBER ARRANGES TO
FIGHT UNIVERSITY PROJECT.
Suggestion to Make College Part of
Higher Institution la Resented
and Will Be Opposed.
PULLMAN, Wash., Jan. 9. (Special.?
The Pullman Chamber of Commerce
at its weekly luncheon today appointed
a "defensive committee" to resist what
is regarded as encroachment upon the
State College by the State University.
This action was called forth by the
reading of a leading editorial In the
Montesano Vidette, supposed to be
written by John Rae, the oldest and
most influential member of the Uni
versity Board, and therefore is looked
upon as a semi-official statement of
the UnUersity's programme.
The editorial proposes a single Uni
versity, with a single board and a
single president, the plants to remain
as at present and the State College to
be the agricultural department of the
It is believed locally that such a
course would be destructive of the
usefulness of the college to the indus
trial classes throughout the state, and
would result in the ultimate destruc
tion of the Institution. The first pro
posal was to curtail the functions of
the college. This was the report of
the experts. The second step, by Victor
Zednick, a member of the Educational
Commission, of Seattle, and an alumnus
of the University, was the preparation
of a bill for a single board, which. It
is believed, would be dominated by
Seattle members. The third step sug
gests a single University, with a single
board and president, the State College
being reduced to the status of a single

In order to strengthen their olea for

delegation in Congress.
Commander George W. Williams, of
the battleship Oregon, the training ship
of the California Naval Militia, and Inspector-instructor
of the Naval Militia
of the Pacifio Coast, has recommended
to the chief of the division of Naval
Militia affairs that a torpedo-bat and
a cruiser of the New Orleans' class be
sent to Portland. The officers of the
Naval Militia have also put in an of
ficial bid for the two vessels.
If these two vessels are brought to
Portland they wiil both be here early

Lieutenant-Commander George F.

hopes to take the Oregon Naval Militia

it would strengthen this hope.
It is considered probable that the

PILOTAGE SERVICE CRITICISED
Port of Astoria to Ask State to Pro
vide Power Scliooner.
ASTORIA. Or.. Jan. 9. (Special.)
The pilotage service which has been
maintained at the mouth of the Co
lumbia River since the Port of Port
land has had it in charge, was a sub
ject of discussion at the session of
the Port of Astoria Commission today.
Instances were cited where steamers
have been delayed in the offing a day
or more waiting for a pilot to bring
them in. The subject was brought up
by Harbormaster Sweet, who said that
shipping was suffering as a result of
the poor service maintained.
The commission appointed a commit
tee, which will endeavor to have the
state provide a power pilot schooner,
with the idea of re-establishing an in
dependent pilotage service similar to
the one in vogue several years ago.
A committee consisting of Commis
sioners Kinney, Warren and Patton was
uthorized to ask bids for the construc
tion of a first-class dredge, and ar
rangements were made for establishing
reclamation district so that when
waterways are dredged the abutting
property may be assessed to pay a
portion of the expense. G. C. Fulton
was reappointed attorney for the com
mission and Frank Sweet was reap
pointed as harbormaster. Upon the
recommendation of Mr. Sweet the com
mission decided to place an automatic
fog bell at the outer end of the port
dock, as an aid to vessels entering the
"Other than the case of the steam
schooner Norwood, detained the latter
part of November, because her master
did not send a message before getting
to sea from Puget Sound that be de
sired a pilot, we have had no complaint
from persons concerned in the charter
or desDatch of vessels." said w,
Wright, manager of the Port of Port
land last night.
"The tug Oneonta is now held at
Astoria for no other reason than to
put pilots aboard ships, the tug Wallula
being in commission there as well for
any work that comes up.
