Employes Swing Over From
Employers to Public Dele
gates at Conference.
) Compromise Proposal of 88.65 He
! jected by Officials, "Who Count
: ed on Girls Standing by Them
for $8.35 End Surprise.
OLYMPIA, Wash., June 27. (Spe
cial.) The, telephone minimum wage
conference ended suddenly today, when
the three girl employes, who had been
standing with the employers for a low
minimum wage, swung over and, with
the three representatives of the publics,
recommended a 3 wage scale by a six-to-three
vote. The three telephone of
ficials at the conference cast the nega
tive votes, r . .
The end came so suddenly that the
Welfare Commission was taken by sur
prise. The Commission voted to meet
July 9 to decide whether to accept or
reject the recommendation of the con
ference. A short time before the vote was
taken, a proposal to compromise on a
wage rate of 137.50 per month, or J8.65
per week, was made, but was rejected
by the employers, who counted on the
girls standing with them in voting for
an 8.25 wage.
No explanation of the sudden switch
of the girls was forthcoming.
J. H. Corcoran, traffic chief for the
Bell Company for the Northwest, said,
when the conference adjourned, that,
notwithstanding the high minimum
wage recommended, his company was
flnnGMHncr iihtitutInBT automatic
telephones for the manual system, as
had been reported.
The minimum wage rate of 10 a
week for mercantile establishments be
' came effective throughout Washington
today. Minimum wage rates of $8.80
for factories and $9 for laundries be
come effective August 1 and 24, re
1 spectively.
The minimum wage adopted by the
Welfare Commission for each Industry,
except factories, thus far. Is exactly 75
cents higher than the wage adopted for
the corresponding industry in Oregon,
while in the factory industry the eight
hour law applies in this state, and
- makes the difference greater than 75

America Carries 4450 Pounds
in Experimental Flight.
Alteration Greatly Improves Action
of Flying Craft and Seven Pas-
sengers Go Aloft in Sen
sational Trip.
After the Rodman Wanamaker trans
Atlantic flier America had flown today
with a cross load of 4450 pounds, Glenn
H. Curtiss said tonight he thought the
end of the experimental work with the
hull of the America was near at hand.
The change yesterday so Improved
the boat's action on the water that she
rose to flying speed today within 16
feet of the starting point. Her action
so pleased Lieutenant Porte that he
returned immediately to the dock and
asked for all the available ballast and
four more passengers, making a total
of seven men aboard. This gave him
almost the load required for the trans-
Atlantic flight.
World's Record Set.
The net useful load carried weighed
more than 1500 pounds. This is said
to constitute a world's record for fly
ing boats and an American record for
aeroplanes and to have been exceeded
only by the giant Russian biplane built
by Sikorsky, which is of 400 horse
power. Lieutenant John C. Porte says the
America will do all expected of It. He
expects to attempt to riy across me
Atlantic next month and his plan is to
fly first to the AzpreB, then to the coast
of Spain and then to the coast of Ire
land. His machine is like one of Cur
tiss' flying boats in most Important
respects. It has a big enclosed cabin
in which Lieutenant Porte and his
mechanician will live during the flight.
The machine was launched June 22.
It was named the America by Miss
Katherine Masson. The boat was built
by Glenn Curtiss , at the expense of
Rodman Wanamaker.
. Lieutenant Porte recently said con
cerning his plans:
"The point of departure will be St
John's. Newfoundland. The distance
from there to the Azores Is 1198 miles.
From the Western Islands, as mariners
call them, the distance to Vigo Is 868
miles. Fnom this to the final destina
tion is 623 miles. It Is planned to reach
the Azores In 20 hours.
Time Withlm Limit.
"This means an hourly flight of 69.9
miles. It will take 16 hours more to
get to Vigo and about nine hours more
from that place. If a total of 10 hours
were used in stops, the elapsed time
would be 65 hours, which is 17 hours
less than the time limit set by the
terms of the prize offer.
"The question naturally asked Is:
Why I am not flying directly from
Newfoundland to Ireland ?
"First of all, I determined that the
most efficient type of machine to use Is
a flying boat. With such a construe,
tlon I could. If necessary, arise, light
on the water and then resume my
"I was confronted with the diffi
culty nointed out by many noted ex
perts of being unable to carry enough
petrol to keep a flying boat, with Its
great extra weight, going through the
whole distance between North America
and the British Isles.
"Azores offers solution. To replenish
my gasoline I hit upon the Azoree as
a station. As that point pulls me pretty
well to the south, I concluded that it
would be the part of wisdom to re
supply at a convenient point, and so se
lected Vigo Bay for that purpose.
"Bv taking the southern route I
shall escape the fog area In about six
hours. On the direct route between
Newfoundland and the Irish coast I
might be in a fog belt for the whole
flight.- The variations in the compass
