Chicago, June 8. Yesterday was an
extremely busy day for preachers, cab
drivers and florists. The first crop of
June weddings was enormous. Satur
day license clerks were swamped, 110
licenses being Issued in the first two
hours. The average for; the. day was a
license every minute. New records
would have been established but for the
fact that it was only a half day at the
city hall, and the license bureau closed
promptly, Inasmuch as there was a ball
game In town and lots doing otherwise.
All of yesterday cabs and automobiles
hustled up and down and around the
streets, all bearing pretty girls, great
quantities of roses, new suit cases, and
all the Impediments of the newly
wedded. Outgoing trains also carried
their quota, while ministers and Judges
found their salaries considerably aug- j
merited at the close of the day.

Washington, June S. Secretary Gar
field of' the department of the Interior
made the positive announcement to The
Journal correspondent today that the
Keep commission, of which he is a
member, will recommend to the con
gress at the coming session the adop
tion of some system of pensioning gov

In the service and who to the last have
maintained records of good conduct
and efficiency.
"The commission Is not prepared at
this time to indicate exactly the char
acter of the measure it will "recom
mend. ' Perhaps It will be in the na
ture of an annuity, but the details
must be worked out later . to enable
the members of the commission to de
termine what they believe would Be
wise. Whatever be the result of the
future . deliberations of the commis
sion, the recommendation will be vig
orous andwill be made to meet the
obvious demhnd for some solution of
the problem of what to do with the
wornout clerks."
It Is realised that any proposal to
pension government clerks will meet
with opposition by many members of
the congress. It is the intention, how
ever, to strive to enlighten the people
as to the facts and justify the adop
tion of some plan to relieve the sit
"I am on record," Commissioner Bal-
linger of the general land office said.
"as being in favor of pensioning govern
ment clerks, and believe that in the
increased efficiency such a plan would
bring to the service, the people would
really save money."
Many other officials Indorse this
view. There is talk of an annuity for
wornout clerks, the money to be taken
from their current salaries while they
are In the service, as some corpora
tions now do, That most of the larger
corporations, ' railroad and . indus

Telegraphers Make Forma
Complaint to Officials of
Western Union.
(Journal Special Berries.)
New York, June 3. The statement
of grievances prepared by the commit
tee of the Commercial Telegraphers'
Union of North America has been sent
to each member of the board of direc
tors of the . Western Union Telegraph
company. The company is asked to
concede an eight-hour work dar to all
telegraphers working on day shifts, giv
ing uniform working hours in all offices
throughout ths country and a fixed
standard' in all offices.
Both the officials of the company and
the leaders of the union still express
the belief that no strike will occur.
Preeident B. J. Small of the union says
we win not ask the company to
grant another Increase of wages at this
time. We will, however, insist that the
10 per cent increase announoed to take
effect March 1, last, be granted to all
telegraphers m the employ of the com
pany and that we be given assurance
that the 'sliding scale' will not be used
as a means to take the Increase away
trom us.
"Other concessions -we .will. ask will
involve little or no expense to the com
pany. Jt will cost nothing to stop in
tlmldating tactics, bribery, black-listing
and other acts that have a tendencv to
kill the spirit of independent action and
make the men moral cqwards because of
tne ract mat they have to submit to
brutal indignities from day to day in
order to retain their positions and earn
a livelihood at their chosen trades,"
