There is pathos in the contest
being waged by girls in Tort
land against a telephone cor
poration. The girls are on &
strike but they , are conducting
it with the decorum that is be
coming their sex. No violence
is being used nor is the safety of
imported girls who fall their
places imperiled or threatened.
The pathetic phase of the situa
tion lies in the inequality of the
contestants in the strife. A cor
poration with funds at its com
mand on one side and depend
ent girls with their meagre
monthly salary of about $25, cut
oflf, on the other. No wonder a
stockman, observing the situa

Help in the big department

ence of underpaid wages in de
partment stores in Portland was
brought to the attention of the
public by Henry McGinn when
he sued a big department store
in behalf of one of the mis
treated girls in that store. It
was shown that many work for
$20 a month and that they were
actually informed there were
ways of selling themselves to
make up the remainder neces
