SEATTLE BOOM DIFFERENT
'Continued From First Psge.).
iudustrles are not spending their earn
ings on real estate. They are putting
them into safety deposit vaults that
portion they do not lose on tbe street
or Invest In liberty bonds. It is said
that there is not a vacant deposit box
to be obtained in all Seattle.
There was in other days the man
with the get-rlch-quick scheme. There
is no chance for him in this boom.
The proletarian is getting rich fast
uouch to suit himself without calling
The place, where dollars once flowed
over the bar and exhilarating refresh
ment was taken In return is no more.
And In this connection, it may be said,
the dance halls and other dens of
vice that aroused the Ire of General
Green and caused the ban on Seattle
for (Camp Lewis soldiers was prob
ably merely a concession to hungry
spirits that could see no other way of
getting in on the worker's prosperity.
These dens were not there particu
larly to catch the dollar of the unwary
soldier. The soldier gets but a dollar
a day; perhaps he allots half to depend
ents and puts $6.50 or so a month Into
war Insurance. Tbe soldier was just
small fry. He had only a dollar or two
Real Flh la Shipyard.
The real fish waa tha fellow who was
getting 6 a day up in the shipyards
or in the ship fitting shops. It waa not
the soldiers spending money that
caused Seattle to clean up and make
It possible to lift the ban. It was the
sentiment that cut deep, and Seattle is
proud. Soldiers now get over from
Camp Lewis, a few on Wednesday when
the soldiers have a half day off. and
another few on Saturday afternoon and
Sunday. Leavea from a cantonment
are harder to v obtain than from an
Army post. Hence on sees probably
no more soldiers In Seattle than one
does in Portland.
In the absence of a real estate move
ment, saloons, dives and other drags
upon accumulated savings, the ones in
Seattle who are profiting most from
the unprecedented Industrial activity
are the established merchants, the own
ers of smalt rental residences, proprie
tors of rooming-houses and owners of
safe deposit vaults. It may be a healthy
activit', but It does not seem like a
real boom to one who has seen other
As already Indicated, it has brought
down some troubles on the head of
Seattle. The most pressing, quite likely.
Is the transportation problem. The
20.000 or more workers In the ship
yards pour out at quitting time upon-
First avenue, the sore artery that leads
up town whence other carllnes extend
this way and that into the. residence
Car Service Demoralised.
First avenue is a sort of defile that
cannot adequately take care of the
swarm uf workers. Streetcars run on
an average of better than one and one-
half a minute in the rush hours. Men
sm-arm all over themi They pay fares
if they feel like It: If they don't feel
like It. the company can go somewhere
and sneexe. Probably the company gets
most of the fares In the long run. for
most of the men must transfer uptown,'!
but the Jam of car demoralizes service
throughout the city. Serious, conserva
live citizens assert that the traction
system has broken down.
Vet, with its overload of fares, the
traction company has appealed to the
Public Utilities Commission for tbe
right to Inaugurate a -cent fare, and
the City Council is preparing to combat
Tbe company's case, as those vho
speak for the company state It, is that
It cannot use all Its equipment because
It cannot get platform men to operate
all its cars. It has other equipment on
the way and haa no prospect of being
able fully to utilize it. It cannot get
platform men. because Its wage scale
Is below the going scale in employ
ments requiring a similar degree of
skill and training. It cannot raise
wages, because a 5 -cent fare does not
yield enough revenue. It cannot pro
vide additional trackage or loops or
other means of handling traffic, be
cause It cannot get the. money, and It
cannot get the money because Its
revenues do not Justify further invest
ments. Maar Solution Offered.
There have been conferences held by
various Interests in which several
forma of relief have been proposed.
One is operation of ferries from the
shipyards to the uptown docks: an
other la an elevated railway system;
JUST as we were congratulating
ourselves that King Winter had
passed us by, lo! he comes and
leaves his card on every doorstep
leaves as well a Northland crispness
in the air that sends us scurrying
along the streets with quickened step
and brighter eye.
If the hitherto mild weather made you
hesitate about buying a new Overcoat, you
need 'wait no longer. You'll find here
overcoats in abundant variety of fabric,
pattern and model overcoats that laugh
at King Winter, even though he send an
icy blast from the very portals of the

attractive and worthy coats that I
can sell you at

--Overcoats are shown on the third floor.
Let the elevator bring you up.
another is operation of steam trains
on the railroads during rush hours.
Ona might think that there! would be
resort to Jitneys. But jitneys are few1
in Seattle. There is a state law re
quiring' a $2500 bond the same bond
that is required by city ordinance in
Portland. A tew rattletraps are
operating as "free -buses" and thus
avoiding tbe bonding law; a few ethers
seem to have secured bonds.
One would reason that a pronounced
traffic congestion would make it pos
sible for bonded jitneys to operate
profitably. But it has not worked that
way. It may be that there is more
money to be made at other employ
ments. Still, while the traction com
pany is short of men. there are said to
be 1500 laborers waiting for jobs in
the shipyards, and on the other hand,
there are women driving taxicabs and
there ' are women elevator operators
In several office buildings and depart
Whatever may be said of the street
car company's other plaints, the labor
shortage so far as it is concerned,
seems to be actual. Men obtained stay
with the company but a short time.
A period of service on the platform en
titles one to a union card and a card
gives a man a better chance of em
ployment in the shipyards. The com
pany has become a clearing-house for
shipyard workers. Its older employes
spend much of their time drilling new
men. who get off their routes and oth
erwise, out of greenness at the work,
blockade traffic still further. Disci
pline among the company's employes
has deteriorated. Stories are told of
motormen smoking cigarettes while on
duty and of occasional drunkenness
These are but storirs told to me. My
own observation of discipline and effi
ciency is confined to that obtained on
the one streetcar ride Into an unfamil
iar part of the city. The motorroan of
whom I inquird a direction, was par
ticularly courteous and well informed.
He was even so accommodating as to
point out the most sheltered part of
the open platform, for. a cold north
wind was blowing.
Pertinent Unery Raised.
Naturally there Is some speculation
as to why, when the streetcars are so
crowded with passengers; why, when
It is necessary to change the opening
time of places of business so the usual
rush .and the workers' rush, will not
occur at the same hour; why, when so
many nickels are rolling in. the com
pany cannot afford to .pay better wages,
thereby get more men and operate
There is without doubt a boom on in
Seattle, but as already written It is
like no other boom that Seattle ever
heard of.' Those who have the money
are wary, and there are a lot or lnsti
tutions. like the traction company, that
think they should by rights 'get more
of it thsn Is coming their way.
For my part I would not ask any
thing better than a monopoly of snuff
in the present state of affairs in the
city of Seattle.
