.employes at their request. A letter
1 Was also read from the state boarc.
i Of health which stated that T orking
conditions at the Portland Woolen
mllla were such that a working day
of 10 hours five days a -week and a
half holiday on Saturday, would not
prove a detriment to the women em-
, ployed there.
, . Dr. Pierce Speaks for K1UL
-Dr. E. A. Pierce, a member of the
; board, spoke In favor of working and
sanitary conditions at the mill.
1 ' Pressed by Mrs. L,. Gee, a member of
s the -conference. Dr. Pierce .efused to
commit himself to the principle that a
10 hour day was right for all women
; - la Industry.
,"I should have to see the plant first,"
- he said, "and good health Is primarily
dependent on contentment with condl
l tlons. Qf the Portland Woolen Mills
specifically, however, I do not believe
that a 10-hour day five days of the
. week and a half holiday Saturday
. would have any detrimental effect."
i Vv Opposes 54-Hour Week.
? '..: " "Mrs. Oee declared herself unalter
k . ably opposed to a 64-hour week. "I
stand for a 48-hour week," she said,
but If it must be a 54-hour week I
; would rather see five days of 10 hours
' and a half holiday than tlx days of
nine hours each."
-"I am with you for an eight-hour
. day whenever It applies throughout the
satire country," responded Mr. Thomp
son. ' Thomas Roberts, a member of the i
commission, suggested a CO-hour week.
Wny not work nine hours for five
- days and five hours on Saturdays?"
. he asked. "Then the women will have
their Saturday afternoons off."
Mr. Thompson said in reply that the
employes were on piecework and that
, shortening of hours would curtail their

drafted by the directorate of the cham-
ber opposing the imposition of burden

- H supplemented the resolution by
."declaring that further agitation would
rult in disaster for the state. Kast

pleaded that the conference make no

' spoke along similar lines.
jit 'Isn't It a fact that the Chamber of
V Commerce began the agitation?" asked
Thomas Roberts. j!
. "It Is hardly fair to pillory a man

conditions he considers burdensome and

OrUlia, Wasn Authority to Aid la
Campaign on Proposed 9363,000 Bond
A good roads campaign in Oregon
without Frank Terrace of Orillia,
Wash., would be like a presentation of
Hamlet without a Hamlet. In past
campaigns for bond issues In Clatsop,
Columbia and Hood River counties Mr.
Terrace was among the list of speak
ers on the affirmative side.
It has grown to be a fixed custom
to "send for Terrace" who, according
to Samuel Hill, has done more for good
roads in proportion to his means than
any other n-;n In America.
The 'latest call for Mr. Terrace's
services has come from Coos county
where is pending the question of $362,
000 bond issue to be voted on next
week. In response to the call he left
Portland Monday night and opened a
week's speaking tour , at North Bend
Among other outside speakers who
will take part In the Coos county cam

North Bend, Or., May 10. The good

on voting for the 32u,000 bond Issue,
opened last night with a big meeting

speakers. Another meetinr will be
held in Marshfield tomorrow . night
and the visiting speakers will then
make a tour of the entire county.

Marshfield, Or.. May 10. A small

California to engage in fishing, was

Those who have seen the boat

the little boat may weather through,

Mr. Roberts declared he had figures

a young farmer who lives with his

Peterson drove away with a pitch
fork every one who came near his

Hood Blver District Gives Enoonrag

In Soil Culture and Spraying.
Hood River's fruit crop is not to be
hurt by the present spell of cool, wet
weather, according to Wilmer Sieg,
Kepresenting tile Hood River Growers'
association, who is here on business.
Mr. Sleg said the only effect so far
has been to interfere with pollenlza
tion. Orchardlsts Df the Hood River val
ley, Mr. Sieg said, are devoting much
time and pains this season to soil cul
ture and spraying. Sixteen hundred
barrels of lime and sulphur alone have
been sprayed on the trees, compared
with only 600 barrels last season.
Much nitrate is being put back into the
soil and Mr. Sleg said prospects for a
successful crop this year are excellent
The by-products plant at The Dalles Is
expected to use up a large percentage
of the fruit that hitherto has been put
on the market along with the A-l qual
ities, and thus the growers will be
enabled to Improve the general qual
ity of their best product.
