A general walkout of tho mombors
of tho Culinary Union took placo

In tho various restaurants hero upon
Instruction from official of tho
union following thn nnswnr mndo to
tho union by tho Klnmnth Proprie
tor's Association, rojectlng tho renew

In forco for the past six months.

association, dellvarod n negative an

at the conforcnen Inst wnek nt tho
White Pelican hotel, yestordny nftor
noon and tho union officials at tho
closo ot tho day shifts callod at tho
various restaurant and naked for
tho union card which were In each
placo, notifying Iho employees to
clean up all tholr work In 100 per
cent. shape nnd not to report for
work until further ordora from thr
union. Tho union order wero fol
lowed to a letter by tho union holp
and thn proprietor today atntrd that
the restaurant work was loft In good

Keep Ilex Cafn Open
Tho Hex Cafo wa concentrated
upon by tho proprietors of tho Owl,
Jewel and Doughnut Shop this morn
ing and tho proprietor of tho last
three placos appoarod for work thoro
Instead of opening tholr own ostab
llihment. This movo on tho part
of tho proprietor will ennblo ono
eating houio to remain open' nt all
hour without handicapping tho pub
lic who are dependent upon restau
rant for their meals, tho proprietors
said. Largo signs woro on display
In tho places closod that "meal tick
et wore good at the Ilex Cafo owing
to concentration of proprietor' ef
fort to keep business going a us
Tho York Cafn at Tenth And Main
street, while not a member ot the
proprietor's association closed -In
sympathy with tho association until
the present difficulties aro settled,
Itoss Nlekerson said today.
Our suggestion of yesterday thati
further payment ot dues to tho
Chamber of Commorco bo suspend
ed until something doflnlto Is pro-l
posed and tho policy of secrecy
that has dominated It Is dropped
struck a responslvo chord. Tho ad
ministration ot Socretary Stanley
hns been such a disastrous falluro
that It Is doubtful It any living
man can aavo tho organization from
bankruptcy. In tact, It Is bankrupt
now. Tho debt today, outsldo ot
tho grab that Is duo tho American
City Iluroau, Is In tho neighbor
hood ot $2,000. Bvon tho salary
ot Socrotary Stanley la unpaid for
over two nioaths, and thoso who
know him will reallzo from this
that tho finance of tho Chamber
must bo In a torrlblo plight whou
ho holds tho sack for his pay.
Whon wo wero Informod aomo
six or olght months ago about tho
wonderful "program" that was to
como out ot ho "reorganized"
Chamber, wo suggostod, thon urged
and finally demanded that monthly,
or at least quarterly financial
statements bo publlshod, sn that
contributors would know tho re
ceipts and oxpondtturos and whoro
their money was going. But no out
cry was loud -enough to penotrato
tho wall of secrecy built up to hldo
tho Incompetency ot Socretary
Stanley. The result Is that today
tho Chamber Is on financial rocka
and will go to pieces unless a man
with bralna and ono who is fully
familiar with local conditions la
selected aa secretary. The man now
being Investigated will never do
tho Job, He la of the aame effemin
ate, secretive, wobbling, camouflag
ing type of the preaont 'incumbent,
who atayed with the ship as long
Ono of tho first move on tho part
of tho 1'roprlotor's Association was
to put In a ton por cent gonoral re
duction upon nit foods nerved on tho
Jtos Nlckorson stated: "Tho wngo
scqlo presented tor tho Proprietor's
association, was rejected by us yes
tordny, following our .mooting last
night. !Wo havo joined togothor to
keep one restaurant going, which will

night servlco will bo given tho public
who orn dopondont upon tho rcatau-
rants tor their meals. Wo aro not
fighting union labor but wo do not
Intend to employ nny moro union

ntioii rules govern our futuro opera
tion and union holp can como horo
nnd work It they earn to. Tho other
restaurant proprietors aro helping
tut In this crisis nnd havo closed
tholr place until sottlomont ot tho

ovtis, wo can keep tho llox Cafo go

or hlro any holp unlet tho business
becomes so great that wo must havo
holp thon wo win employ whom wo
please, Just so they deliver tho goods.
Wa aro standing pat on our proposi
tion about tho wago question and
open shop rules."
rrho Culinary Union voluntarily
submitted n 7 por cent cut at tho last
mooting In tho conferonco botweon

Is It posslblo that In this city
thoro Is no man capable ot admin
istering tho affairs ot tho cham
ber? Must wo admit that It Is ne
cessary to travel Into tho wilds ot
Montana to pick a man unslght and
unsoo? Wo did that when, "wo em-
plood Stanley, and what did wo
got? Look at tho Chamber of Com-
mcrco today for your answer. Can
you find ono slnglo ploco ot con
structive work that ho hag accomp
lished? Whoro aro tho roducod
freight rates that ono man started
and ho promised to comploto?
Whoro Is anything ho haa dono?
Wo could go down tho lino with
quostlon after question, but what
Is the uso. Tho answer would bo
tho same nothing accomplished.
Ho and tho cabal that trail at
his heols havo tried to mako It ap-
poar that this paper was and Is
against n Chamber ot Commerce.
Thoy know wo aro not, but they
"Ho, He, lie," hoping some of their
statements will stick. Wo nover
havo and nevor will bo against a
Chamber ot Commorco that will do
somothlng besldes selecting a city
flowor, holding pink teas, handing
out a lot of prattlo and appointing,
commltteo after committee In
which to loso ovory morltorlus pro
Joct that presents ltsolt to the or
ganisation! Wo aro not against the
present chamber, but we aro unal
terably against tho Incompetency
that controls It and until that la
ellmtnatod we ahall urge everyone
to hold aloot from It. It la the on
ly way wo know ot to penetrate
me aensuy oi mina or me man
who la primarily responsible for
the falluro ot an organisation "that
should have been a power for up
building In the community.
Another Accident
With Toy Coaster
Tho second accldont to children
on toy coaster to happen thl week
occurrod yosforday -when four-yoar-old
Jean McCall, daughter of Mr.
anl Mr; John McCall, ran her
coaster o'vor a flight of, step on
Third slreoV near Joffcrson, and
landed on a sharp, rock at tho .foot
of tho stop. A gash wa cut Just
ubovo tho llttlo girl's tomplo so
deop It was necessary for Dr. L.
Ia. Truax to tako several stitches
in oruor to araw mo cut togothor.
It was reported thl morning
that tho child appeared to bo quite
well asldo from tho largo bump
nnd cut on her hoad.
"Any doubt wo might havo had
ot tho effoctlvenes ot the pull
ing, power ot advertising In Tho
Horald Is forovcr gone," said E.
K. Magce ot Undorwood's Drug
storo today. "It certainly delivers
tho goods. As a result ot It wo
ran out of many vt tho linos wo
advortlscd and so groat wero 'tho
crowds that wo woro unablo to
sorva evoryono as quickly nnd ef
ficiently a Is our usual custom."
Whlto thoro Is no question ot tho
effectiveness or advertising In tho
Horald, yet thoro must bo some
thins to follow It valuo In tho
artlclo advertised. This, Undor
wood's gavo tholr customers. Pos
sessing tho confldcnco ot tho buy
ing public, this storo has always en
Joyed a largo patronago and tho
romarkahlo offerings given In this
Bala will undoubtedly havo tho ef
fect of cementing It and aQdlng to
His. oxperlcnco is only that of
every morchant who uses the col
umns of this paper. Thero Is no
socrot about why It produces re
sults it reaches tho buying public
ot Klamath Falls and Klamath
county and no merchant who em
ploys It can fall, provided ho de
livers tho goods ho advertises.
This Underwood's havo dono al
ways. Tho day nas passed whou a
morchant can succeed In business
without advertising. Each year
thoro Is added to tho purchasing
power ot ovory community eighteen
por cent ot now customers. To gain
their attention, morchanta must bo
progressive and ngresslvo enough
to go out attor tbeir business. The
ono who docs not falls. That Is
why nearly nlnoty por cont of all
buslnoss falluroa Is among non-ad-vcrtlsera.
And yet you will find merchants
In ovory community who cannot see
the power of printers' Ink except
when it I used to print a notlco ot
