worth a clear profit of ?6 per day
each to their employers. The gen
eral proposition of the boss painters
to rate the painters was accepted, hut
no arrangement could bo reached as
to the details of the rating. The
union asked for ?3.25 for the painters
and $3.50 for the paper hangers. The
bosses rofused to accept these figures
and In their turn submitted a wage
scale which the union refused. The
bosses wanted the rating to be. paint
ers $2.50 and paper hangers $3.50.
These figures the union refused to ac
cept. Hence the present contest Is
on as a sequel.
The painters of the city met this
morning and organized what they de
nominated the Co-operative Painters'
Union No. 599. and elected C. J. Wil
son bookkeeper and foreman, and

tion of the organization Is to take
contracts in the ovent of the persis
tent refusal of the bosses to accede
to their demands for an increased
I wage scale. The organization will
