HEREAFTER PENDLETON
i STORES WILL CLOSE EARLY.
, Clerks' Union Has Been Organized
and the Day of From 13 to 16 Hours
' With No Sunday Rest, Will Be Done
Away With,
j After the 5th of August all business
houses of Pendleton will close
promptly at C o'clock In the evening
except Saturdays.
j This was the decision of tho Clerks'
i Union nt their meeting Tuesday
I night. Recently tho local clerks of
, Pendleton organized themselves to
gether to further their own interests
j and arrange, if possible, to make
their hours shorter behind the coun
; ter. as at present they are in the
; stores at 7 o'clock in the morning
: -.r. l remain there until S o'clock in
ix..c evening. This is 13 hours in tho
; store, counting what little time they
I usually take for their noon meal, and
. is longer than anyone should have to
Iwoik. To get away from this, if pos
, sibie, and get shorter hours, the
I clerks have organized a union and
are now going to arrange to close
earlier. This will be done without
j working any material injury to the
I employers, as it is a recognized fact
j that where the early closing move
ment is in vogue the merchant does
just as much business as where they
keep open for 13 or 14 hours. There
is seldom a case where the purchas
ing public cannot secure what it
wants between 7 a. m. nnd G p. m.
and if the people once get used to
this they will get along just as well
as if the stores were kepi open all
night and the clerks made to work
long hours.
The Sunday closing law will b
enforced and no business houses will
be allowed to open on Sunday. This
will give the over-worked clerks a
chance for a little recreation, which
they have not been allowed in tin
past, as all business houses have been
kept open on Sunday and the clerk
have been compelled to be at their
posts not only long hours through tin
week, but most of the day Sundays.
At the meeting last night Edward
Ebon resigned from tho union and
Fred Karl was appointed nnancial
clerk in his place. The committeo
on the early closing reported favor
able. They have been quietly work
Ing, and find things coming their
way. The committee Is composed of
Mrs. M. A. Clark, J. C. Allen nnd
Charles Bean.
