onciliation Board Grants
v crease in Wages.
In-
SCHEDULE IS RETROACTIVE
Recommendation Is Made That Fu
ture Increases Be Based Upon
living Conditions.
Grainhandlers of Portland, Seattle
Bud Tacoraa are granted an increase
from 75 to SO cents an hour for straight
time and from il.12 to $1.20 an hour
overtime in the decision handed down
last night by the Oregon state board of
conciliation, consisting of William F.
Woodward, O. R. Hartwig and J.
I'lynn. This increase is retroactive to
July 1. The decision of the board was
unanimous. .;,
Although the duration of the wage
schedule is not fixed, a strong recom
mendation is made by the board that
further increases shall be based upon
such changes in living conditions as
will justify reopening the controversy.
The hope is expressed in the decision
of the board that losses which opera
tors have sustained by raising wages
while working under contracts which
made no provision for Increased wages
will be recompensed in new contracts
now being drawn up between operators
and the grain corporation of the United
States food administration.
Decision Is Accepted.
The decision reached by the board
last night is the outcome of an arbitra
tion of the strike Issue agreed upon
by both grainhandlers and operators.
fter Portland grainhandlers had de
clared their strike, they consented to
return to work pending the decision of
the board of conciliation, and both em
ployers and employes agreed to accept
the decision of the board as final. At
this time grainhandlers of the Puget
Sound cities, who had been contem
plating a strike, joined issues with the
Portland workers and added their wage
dispute to the question before the
)oard.
i a Tiearinc- Wednesday in the cen
tral library, at which representatives
of the dock operators and of the -ort-:and,
Seattle and Tacome unions were
present, testimony was submitted in
-Kokoir of the errainhandlers' justifica
tion for their demand. Members of the
w.Q r-A .nTieirtcreii and argued the cas
yesterday, and announced their unani
mous decision in the evening.
Besides settling the strike in this
district and preventing a strike on
tiiret Sound, the decision of the board
also equalizes wage scales for the
entire northwest, thus eliminating the
pn-nanH.so3ttli differential in pay
-which has been a source of trouble and
dissatisfatcion for many years.
Action Is Commended.
In announcing the judgment of the
board, Mr. Woodward said last night:
I wish to praise the loyalty and
good faith of all parties in consenting
to arbitration, and placing full confi
in the administration. This board
..nmnienrls esDeclally the action of the
s-rainhandlers in returning .to work
wriille. the matter was being settled.
Further than this, the board wishes
to attest its appreciation of a con
ference which embraced the interests
of the various cities concerned and has
brought about a condition wherein
local and essentially unfair competi
tive conditions he been eliminated."

WASHINGTON, July 24. Two gigan-
ic liners, larger than any ships now
float and designed to cross the At
lantic in four days, are to be built by
he shipping board. They will be 1000
feet long and of 30 knots speed and will
be equipped for use as commerce de
stroyers in the event of war.
Announcement was made today by
he board that plans for the ships had
been completed and that work on them
would be started in the near future. It
is proposed, to provide a special ter
minal for them at Fort Pond Bay, Long
island, and it may be that two similar
liners will be constructed later.
The ships, which are to be bnilt un
der the supervision of the navy de
partment, will be 50 feet longer than
he famous Leviathan, now the-largest
ship afloat, and will have a gross ton
nage of 65,000. Accommodations will be
provided for 1000 saloon passengers, 800
second cabin passengers and 1300 steer
age passengers.
The crew will number 1000 officers
and men and the ships will be of the
oil-burning type with a cruising radius
of 7000 miles, which will enable them
to complete a round trip on the Atlantic
without loading fuel overseas. They
1 be driven by four propellers, on
which will be thrown the strength of
110.000 horsepower.
n order that the vessels may be con
verted into commerce destroyers In
time of war, gun emplacements will be
built on the decks and the after-
deck will be constructed with a view
to transforming it into a landing and
launching space for seaplanes.
Contractor Curtis Works Every
Day Now Since Taking Tanlac
Rheumatism Is All Gone.
"My wonderful Improvement since
taking Tanlac Is the talk of all my
friends and acquaintances." said W. K.
Curtis, a well-known painting and dec
orating contractor who lives at 813
West Grace avenue, Spokane, a few
days ago.
"L'p to tire time I commenced taking
Tanlac," continued Mr. Curtis. "I hadn't
been able to do any work for about
six months, I took to my bed last Jan
uary and stayed there for three solid
months, and at one time my folks had
given me up to die. Why. in one single
night they gave me 115 worth of medi
cine In an effort to save me. My
kidneys were in terrible bad condition
and nobody will ever know how 1 suf
fered from the pains In the small of
my back. That wasn't all that was
wrong with me. either, for I had rheu
matism in my hands and feet, and it
just seemed that the awful aching pains
1 had on this. account would kill me. I
was down and out. all right, and I had
no idea that I would ever be a well
man again.
"A friend of mine, an insurance man.
came out to see me one day. and be
told me how much good Tanlac had
done him. and advised me to give it a
trial. Well, sir, I never saw anything
to equal the way Tanlac got after that
rheumatism, and in little or no time
the swelling was all gone from my
hands and feet and now I never have
any sign of that awful trouble. The
pains in my back are gone, loo. and my
kidneys seem to be in perfect cendl
tlon. I don't have to lie awake and
suffer agonies every night now. but I
just stretch out In bed and sleep like
boy all night long. I have gained i
lot in weight and strength, and In fact
1 was never in better health in my life.
Am back on the Job, and never lose any
time at all from my work. So you
see Tanlac has proved to be a real
medicine in my case, and as long as 1
live I will boost it as strong as 1 can!

Changes in the government regula
tions regarding foreign travel, inci
dent to the signing of peace, are an
nounced by it. 1'. Bonhatn, . United
States immigration inspector for this
district. Chief of these changes i the
fact that travel to countries which were I Neighbor,
neutral ana aiuea during tne war is
now permitted with no further for
mality than a passport from the local
consul of the country to which it is
dcHired to travel.
Passports to the central powers, Bul
garia, Turkey, Germany and wiat was
forme-ly Austria-Hungary, may be re
quested, said Mr. Bonhatn, but as yet
the government has not granted any
such passports. It is the present policy
ol the government, he said, to discour
age travel to these countries and hold
it to the minimum.
Because of the scarcity of shipping
generally and the congestion on the
Atlantic coast, all persons planning to
visit Jurope should make sure of
reservations from New York eastward
before setting out from here. Thou
sands pi persons, ne said, have gone
to New York expecting to secure
passage Immediately to the continent,
the United Kingdom or the Scandinavian
countries, and have been -obliged to
wait in New York for months.
"Only persons having relatives or
legitimate business interests in Europe
are being granted passports," said Mr.
Bonham. "The government does not
want sight-seers in France or the rest
of Europe because of the food situation
abroad."

Delicate Mechanism
Despite its scope, Swift &. Company is
a business of infinite details, requiring
infinite attention.
Experienced men must know livestock buying
with a knowledge of weight, price, the amount and
quality of meat the live animals will yield.
Each manufacturing operation' must be done
with expert skill and scientific precision. A highly
perishable product must be handled with speed and
care to avoid loss.
. Chemists, engineers, accountants, and other
specialists are required to take care of our intricate
oroblems.
Alert wisdom and judgment must be used in
getting stocks of goods into the open channels of
demand through our four hundred branch houses.
Branch house organizations must show activity and
energy to sell at the market in the face of acute
competition from other large packers, and hundreds
of small ones.
All these requirements of intelligence, loyalty,
devotion to the task, are met in the personnel of
Swift 8c Company. Yet the profit is only a fraction
of a cent per pound, with costs at minimum. -
How can the workings of this delicate human
mechanism be improved upon?
Do you believe that Government direction would
add to our efficiency or improve the service ren
dered the producer and consumer?
Let us end you a Swift "Dollar".

ion and operation of a street car line
rom the terminus of the St. Johns line
to the St. Johns municipal terminal. It
remains for this committee to decide
whether the proposed spur will be a
municipal line owned and operated by
the commission of public docks, or will
be a part of the lines of the Portland
Railway Lisht &. Power company.
V. I. Fuller, general manager of the
traction company, stated that the St.
Johns line is not paylnar expense at
present, and that the company-cannot
fford to build ana operate me orancn
line unless susidlxed by the city. 1
urged that the dock commission con
struct the line and then either run
the cars itself or pay the company to
do so.
Commissioner Ben seiiina; oojeciea
to this Dlan beca ise of tne delay ana
congestion that would ensue at the
transfer point. He urged that tne
cars le run straight through from the
municipal terminal to portlana. An
other plun suggested was that passes
or tickets should be issued to city em
ployes who will be obiigea to use tne
line on their way to ana irom worn.
and that fares be collected Irom ai:
other nassengeri.
A .erloos difficulty ot construction
was hrougft out oy jtr. r uuer w mm
said that the company ha no ratia on
hand except high rails designea tor
n.e cn.naved street.. These rails, he
said, are much more expensive than
are necessary for this line. He al
stated that at the rate tne traction
company is paying it cannot secure the
services of enough workmen to build
th. nronosed line.
