Umatilla Farmers Pay Their Men Well

"The farmers in Urando Rondo aro
not troubled to such an extent with
occurrences of this kind. Of course,
in the harvest fields of this valley
there aro a few men who do not re
main the whole season, but the farmer
is not troubled as much as Is the
farmer across the mountains. A few
changes are always necessary to got
a good and responsible crow. But the
farmer Is not compelled to keep a
hack on tho road all the time, going
to and from town in order to keep
the required number of men to do the
"Now, why is tho Umatilla farmer
unable to keep his harvest hands? It
is claimed by the hands that the farm
er does not pay enough wages. They
pay about the same wages that are
paid here. It is claimed by some of
the linnds that tho rancher works too
long hours. To this tho rancher de
clares the season Is short and unless
full 'time and diligent work Is per
formed they will loose large sums;
and that they must necessarily put
in every minute in the daytime. To
accomplish this "overy minute in
tho day,"they get their hands out
ready for work at 4 o'clock a. m.;
at C o'clock they stop 25 minutes for
breakfast; then there is five hours
and a half hard manual labor in the
hot sun until noon, with tank wator to
drink that has been hauled early
in the day. After dinner, they again
take tho rays of tho scorch
Ing sun for five hours, or until
supper, after which two and a half
hours moro are worked, or until 9 p
m. This is a regular day's work.
If a job is being finished, they will
run half an hour or so longer, or will
probably make a move of three or
"Men cannot do this kind of work
and put in this numbew of hours very
many days at a time, hence, the far
mcr is short handed. The men de
mand a good rate of .wages for this
work, but when they become worn
out, no reasonanie sum of money
will hire them to work any longer."
A Umatilla farmer upon reading
the above says that lt does not con
tain tho facts. He says that it is
true that men are expected to work
and the right kind of men do not com
plain; that the hours ln this county
are not so long as in many places
and that upon an average the laborer
fares .better hero than elsewhere.
That none have over been overworked
or got to the point whore money
would not induce them to work on
unless It was a class that never work

fact that better wages aro paid in
