STRIKE HERE IS AVERTED
AT SHIGLE MILL
Move I Declared to Be Only Symp-!
torn of Vmreat Among: Sawyer.
, and Packers of Coast.
An incipient strike of sawyers and
packers at the University Shingle Mill,
In the University Tark district, appears
to have already spent its force. Eleven
mlllmcn. upon the refusal of a rise in
the wage schedule, deserted the mill's
employ on Friday.
At that time a general strike waa
threatened, but officials of the I. B.
Menefee Lumber Company, owners of
the mill, declare that the remaining
workers appear satisfied with the
situation and show no desire to Join
the strikers. Xew workers have been
engaged In place of those who quit.
At the Allen Shingle Mill, also a
Menefee property, it is stated that not
a workman has slven up his job, or
has shown dissatisfaction. Both mills
were running yesterday with full
crews. They employ about 125 men.
Superintendent T."D. McKay, of the
University Mill, holds that the men
merely expressed "the general feeling
of unrest now prevailing among Pa
cific Coast shinele workers." and that
the local situation is an expression of
vtnpathy with tho shingle mill trouble
at Anacortes. Everett and Baliaxd. He
added that the striking employes at
the latter place returned to work yes
terday, accepting the wage scale at
which they rebelled.
