FRANK C. BELL DROWNED
Accident Happens at Horseshoe
Falls on Lewis River.
VANCOUVER, Wash., May 24.
(Special.) Frank C. Beli, 25 years
old. was drowning when fishing at
Horseshoe Falls on the north fork of
Lewis river, yesterday. It is thought
he started to walk across the crest of
the falls and lost his footing on the
slippery rocks and was carried into
the whirlpool below.
A party composed of Bell, his
brother-in-law, C. E. Stirton, and R. C.
Wilson, left here Saturday and
camped all night at the falls. The
latter two started back about noon
and called to Bell, who had crossed to
the other side to fish. He did not
answer but in a short time they saw
his hat floating on the water. Wilson
got a glimpse of the body in the
water and dived in to recover it, but
had difficulty himself in getting out.
The body was recovered about 2
o'clock in the afternoon.
Mr. Bell was a driver of a truck for
the Central planing mill, and was
born in Hurton, Kan. His parents,
Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Bell, reside here;
his brother, Ben D. Bell, in Sharon
Springs. Kan., and two listers. Mrs.

agreed "to furnish the employes' rep

of the source of such information."
The demand came after Mr. Whiter
had attacked demands of the railroad
clerks for higher wages on the ground
It would be unjust to many men and
to the roads to grant a blanket in
crease. "While many of these men merit
consideration, it would be unfair to
grant a geenral increase affecting all
of them." he said. "Fully one-half of
these clerks are from 18 to 23 years of
age and receive good pay considering
their age and experience."
Mr. Whiter said the average pay for
junior clerks was $87.50 a month, that
the proposed wage increase would
bring their pay to an- average of
$128.30 a month. During f.ie past five
years they have received increases of
from 74 to 130 per cent, he said.
Mr. Whiter also raised the question
of the board's authority to grant in
creases retroactive to any date prior
to March 1, when the transportation
act creating the board was effective.

Rise In Income Held deeded.
Gross earnings of the railroads in
the eastern group for the year end
ing October 31. 1919, were in excess
ot 2, 575. 000. 000, he said, but it cost
the roads about 88 per cent of the
gross earnings for operation, which
left a net income of $220,000,000. But,
he said, if the roads had been obliged
to pay during the entire year the
wages and prices now in effect they
would have had a net income of only
118,000,000, or barely more than ex
penses on properties representing an
Investment of over 89,368,000,000.
"If we may assume that the rail
roads ought to operate on a basis not
higher than 75 per cent," he con
tinued, "if they ought as sound bust
ness concerns to have a net income
equal to 25 per cent of the gross
earnings, to apply for capital pur
poses and other corporate obligations.
then on the basis of last year's kusi
ness and operating with the same
measure of efficiency, the eastern
roads would require an increase in
income, to be derived from higher
rates, of about $544,000,000, and that
is the amount the eastern carriers
have asked the commission to grant
in the shape of increased rates.
