tfho president also said that any sub
stantial increase of wages in loading
lin'-s of industry at this time would
crush the general campaign the govern

from increases of ' railway employes

He said it is neither wise nor feasible
to tako care of incrcasos in the wages
of Tailrocd employes at this time-by in

"It is the duty of ovory citizen of the

the only course which a conscientious

wisely made and passionately insisted
upon at this time menace the pea-ce and

than bring our industries and our la

The. president's letter addressed to
'.'My fellow citizens,'! is-ns follows: ,.
'.'The situation has arisen ,in connccr

ca ice that I think it my duty to make
a public .statement concerning it, in or
der that the wlioio country may juu
what is involved. :
"The railroad shopmen have demand
ed a largo increase in wageSi. 'They are
now receiving 58, 63 and- 68 centB per
hour.. They demand 85 cents per hour.
Ti.ia iimnniiH has been eriven careful and
serious consideration by the board which
was constituted by the railroad admin

and the board consisting of an equal
uumbcr of representatives of employes
and of tho operating managers of the
This board has 'been unable to come
to an agreement and i has, therefore,
devolved on the director general of
railroads and myself . to act upon the
merits of the case.

titled to higher wageB because of the
higher wages for the present received
by men doing similar work in ship
yard, navy yards and arsenals, as well
as in a number ot private mausirics,
but, I concur with the director general
in thinking that there is no real basis
of comparison betweed the gettiea em
ployment afforded mechanics by , the
railroads under living conditions as yar
ioiis as the locations in surroundings
of the railway shops themselves and
the fluctuating employment ' afforded
in industries, exceptionally and tempo
rarily stimulated by the war and lo
cated almost without exception in in
dustrial centers where the cost , of liv
ing is highest.
"The subsantial argument which
the shopmen urge, is the very serious
increase, in tne cosi oi jiving. "1D
a very potent argument, indeed. But
the fact is that the cost of living haB
certainly reached its peak and will
probably 'be lowered by the efforts
which are now everywhere being con
certed! and tarried out. It will certain
ly be lowered' so soon as there are set

FALL OPENING AND STYLE SHOW
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, AUGUST 29-30
Featuring New and Attractive Modes Which Dame Fashion Has Proclaimed "Correct." Displays of Ready-
- to-Wear were never more interesting than at the present time. Added to our already splendid assortments
- are many new models, just arrived, bringing with them new originations which Dame Fashion has highly
approved. It would be impossible to present an assemblage of apparel that more truly portrays the vogue
and then you'll .find our prices unequaled for lowness, quality, style and finish considered.
Offered this week and at a time when our stock is at the top notch of completeness, a fur sale that you should
take advantage of; if you are interested in buying good furs at prices that will save you money.
FUR PRICES THAT END WITH THE MONTH FOR AFTER AUGUST 30 THEY MUST GO UP TO
NORMAL. Included in this sale are Fancy Mole Capes, Hudson Seal, Fox, Wolf, Black Lynx, Squirrel and
Jap Mink Scarfs, Capes, Stoles, etc., all offered this week without limit or restriction, away below regular
values. Special attention directed to our showing of Scarfs and Animal Furs, ranging in price. $9.50 to $75
Herehen is the significance of this sale to you. You may buy your furs now and save 20 to 50 per cent on
regular prices. You may wait until after the sale and pay the regular prices. Or you may wait untjl later
in the fall or winter and pay the still higher prices that are bound to come. , . ...
In the recent great raw fur auc
tions in. New York, attended by
fur dealers from all over the world,
advances of 75 to 100 per cent were
reported in the prices of furs, due
to the pelt scarcity and the unpre-.
cedented demand for furs in Eu
- rope. r-:Xv, . - -
A small deposit will re
serve any furs sold this
week, for delivery later
Every day almost, fur prices are
sharply advancing .but notwith
standing the continual increase, the
prices at which furs are marked to
sell a,t the Portland Cloak and Suit
Conupany 's store, up to August 30th
are most reasonable, later ship
ments will no doubt be much higher.
J ' Autumn Millinery Exposition"
Latest Models in Trimmed Hats
An exposition of autumn styles in dress hats neatly
trimmed, portraying the newest creations from the
foremost artists. ' J - "
. Many of those beautiful new hats will be shown
' for the first time tomorrow.
If you are interested in the new models you will
find here just the kind of Hats that will be worn the
coming season at prices ranging from $4.50 up to
Eleganf New Sweaters
Wool Sweaters and Sport Coats in the most at
tractive styles of the season. Plain weaves or fancy,
as you prefer. Some have tuxedo front and belt or
tie sash. Large selection of styles in every wanted
color and in various combinations. Prices range from
$5.95 to $15.00
which will last nobody can certainly
tell how long, but in all probability
onlv for a limited time. , Increases in
wages will, moreover, ccrranuy result
in still furlier increasing tho cost of
production and therefore, the cost of
living and we should only have to go
through the same process again. Any
substantial increase of waxes in lead
in? lines of industry at this time will
utterjy rush the general (campaign
which the government is waging with
energy, vigor and substantial hopo of
success to reduce the cost of living.
And the increases in the cost of trans
portation which would necessarily re
sult from increases in the wages of rail
way employes would moro certainly
and more Immediately have that effect
than any other enhanced wage costs.
Only by keeping the cost of production
on its present level, Dy increasing pro
duction and br rigid economy and sav
ing on the part of the people ean we
hold prices down."
