With the decision of the Stata
board of conciliation, received hero
on Friday by representatives ot
tho Urookd-Scanlon Lumber Co.
The Shevlln-Hlxon Company, and
the Thnborworker local, unskilled
labor in the employ of tho lunVbcr
companies will go on a mlnloauia
wage nt $4,80 per day. Just when
this I to take effect was not stipu
lated in the findings of the board,
and no definite information on tha
subject could bo secured in Bend
ed. Hoy Southvvorth. secretary of
the union, stated that it was hla
impression that It bad been agreed
that the advance. If made, should
he rotroactlve to Augunt 1, but
neither J. P. Koyes, of the Itrooks
Scanlon mill, nor J. P. Hennessey ot
The Shevlln-Hlxon Company "was
able to make a definite statement
on this point. .
Unskilled l-'ibor Atlvnnreil.
Another point which Is apparently
undecided, ia as to whether or not
the change mado in the minimum
for unskilled labor will affect to
wages ot other classes of employes.
The Investigations of the concilia
tion board were entirely concerned
with the unskilled labor minimum,
and the tniUL-eproscntatlvcsj are
understood to consider that thin

nttes paid forother grades ot la

"indicate that about 100 mea ia"
the two mills would be affected by
the conciliation board's findings
and the wugu raise will bo trow
$4.25 and $4.33 dally. A rela
tively niuall number or employes la
tho box factories are affected.
ItivcM i(;ut Ion Thorough.
The award was made following
a thorough sifting of data secured
by the board In a hearing in Port
land, nnd one In Bend. "In malt
ing tho award, the board recognize
tho impossibility of fixing a wage,
scale which shall bo uniformly Just

II. C. L. Quustlon Important.
Living coats wero particularly
taken Into consideration by the
board in arriving at its final deci
