crease the salary attuched to the of'
rtce, which la 1900 yearly. In report
Ing on the communication Chairman
Brlx, of the ways and means commit
tee said he thought that, If any In
crease were to be made, It should take
effect on January 1. However, he Ve-
lleved other oftlclala were entitled to
the first Increases. Some years ago
the salaries of all city officials wore re
duced 20 per cent, and later were re
stored except In the case of the at
torney, auditor and jurveyor. If any
Increase were justified by the condition
of the finances of the city, Mr. Brlx
thought It should go to those three of
ficials. The Increase was not granted.
Councilman Hansen presented an or
dinance providing tin Increase of $5 a
month In the salaries of the drivers
and engineer of thn fire department.
The men are now receiving $65 month

the ways and means committee.

way of almost immediate adoption of
the president'! plan, which tarries
with it declaring th strike off and a
general resumption of work through
the hard coal mine region.
The ltadera of the strikers, except
Mitchell, were hardly heard at all In

"That there are discordant elements
in this convention, that there are dis
satisfied ones at home, I am fully
aware, but, gen-.lemn, with all the
earnestness of .vhtch I am possessed,
I urge that you give approval to the
action of your executive officers, who
have recommended the acceptance ot
the proposition that the strike be de
clared off and all men are then to" re
turn to work In their positions, and
their working places occupied by them
prior to the Inauguration of the strike,
and that all questions at issue be sub
mitted for adjustment to the tribunal

direct negotiations with us, though
from the Intermediaries we have re
ceived assurance that the companies
are going to meet the Issues squarely;
that as far as possible the men are to
be returned to their old places. While
we shall try with all the power we
have to get every man that struck
back to his old job, we will make spec

favor to none. It may be true that
some will be sacrificed, and, as much
as we shall regret, I desire to say that
no battle was ever fought, no victory
ever won that did not carry with It
some victims. Lives have been lost
to gain the most 'trllilant victories that
were ever won In the world."
