THE WAGE AWARD.
Like a dog chasing its tail, the effort of labor to low
er the cost of living by securing higher wages, merrily
proceeds. The faster the dog goe3, the faster the tail.
Every raise in wages, raises the cost of living. Decreased
production diie to shorter working hours, works to the
same end.. Through all stratas of society, the effect is felt
as we blindly stumble forward through this trying age
of reconstruction. In our own case, however, the tail
seems to, be getting ahead of the dog.
i The Salem Welfare Commission has arbitrated the
differences between the Typographical Union and the
newspaper publishers by awarding the printers an in
crease in pay to $36 for a week of 44 hours for day work,
to supercede the present wage scale of $30 for an 8-hour
day. The new scale for night work is 50 cents a day high
er than the day scale.
' Printers and pressmen's wages on the Capital Jour
nal are now 81.8 cents an hour as against 62.5 cents paid
previously, an increase of 30 per cent over the wages of
the past year, and ah increase Xf 60 per cent in the past
three years. This is exclusive of over time1 for which we
must ay at the rate of $1.24 an hour. '
The price of paper three years ago was $2.40. a hund
red pounds. The price of paper today is. $5.25. on three
year contracts, makine an increase of 120 per cent in the
cost of news print. Metal, ink, and all materials used in
the manufacture of a newspaper have increased propor
The newspapers desire to co-onerate in preventing the
discord of industrial turmoil in Salem toy accenting the
decision of the Welfare Commission, on which the print
ers and not the publishers, had a representative.' 1 There is
a limit, however, as to their ability to make headway i
against the constantly increasing cost of production. They
cannot do it on their present income and must receive the
hearty co-operation of the community in increased pat
ronage. It will be necessary to increase rates at present
the lowest in the country and to secure more business--'or
go out of business. i -
The shorter working day imposed under the wage
award, forces the Capital Journal to require display ad
vertising copy to be supplied the day previous to publica
tion. This will insure not only a better set ad; but earlier
printing and delivery of the newspaper. Only by the en
forcement of this rule, can the type be set in the shorten
ed day imposed upon us. We earnestly request the co-operation
of advertisers in this regard, so that we may build
up a paper creditable to Salem.

THE OLD JOB
When autumn comes, with soothing
sighs, I grow so tired of swatting flies,
which light upon my roof! Through all
the weary months since spring I've
swatted flies upon the wing, and. also
on the hoof. When spring arrives, all
fresh and young, and first the call to
arms is sprung, I swat the flies with
glee; I think it goodly exercise to
hase and execute tho flies, but now it
wearies me. Throughout tho balmy days
of May I take my swatting stick .and
slay, with ficreo and ardent hand; and
when the roses bloom in June my Ber
serk sone I weirdly croon, and swat
to beat the .band. And in the heat of
ibeen Bpent in France and Germany.
Lieutenant Himcs was formerly city
engineer of Dallas and during the war
with Germany offered his services to
the government and sent to France
where for the past several months' he
has been stationed at Ochtcndung,
Germany, a city about ten miles west
of Coblenz. Lieutenant Himes was at
tached to tho 6th engineers of the
Third division. He says that he spent
just seven monthMoo long in Germany
and was glad when he reached Oregon
Lieutenant Himes is a civil engin
eer and will again take up his business
in thig city.

IRELAND AND THE LEAGUE.
That the League of Nations provides the test possible
court in which the grievances of Ireland can be adjudicat
. cd and justice secured has been the opinion of those who
have studied the pact since its first presentation. This is
the view of President Wilson, who yesterday outlined his
; position on the Irish question as follows:
My position on the subject of sclfdeterminntion for Ireland Is expressed
-. in Article X I of the covennut, in which I may say I was particularly in
terested because it- seemed to me .necessary for the pence and freedom of
the world that n forum bp created to which alt peoples could brine any mnt-
1er which was likely to affect the peace and freedom of the world,
The President also stated . that the peace covenant
does not obligate any nation to assist any other nation in
curbing a rebellion, nor does it limit or prevent inde
pendent recognition by the United States of Ireland if she
achieves independence. , The peace conference did not
consider Ireland because it had jurisdiction only over the
' territories of the defeated empires.
We are afraid that the sincere Irish in America are
: Itoing made cats-paws of by the professional pro-German
' Irish agitators, who make a fat living without work by
appealing to the sympathies of their expatriated country
men. These agitators are encouraged by the politicians
. who hope by, their propaganda of unreason and prejudice
to vote the Irish solidly, along with the Germans, in 1920.

The damage to the prunes from last

the fruit had not ripened as last us
in other places the damage was ex
tremely light. This is especially no
ticeable in the orchards on the hilly

ripen about two weeks later than on
the bottom lands.

man enjoys his work on earth unless
he gets his labor's worth in one or
other guise; to roll a .boulder up a hill
until one's feet get tired and chill, is
much- like swatting flies.

With the mystic figures "22" in
large red typo, a circular wns found
scattered over the town thig morning
that to many at first suggested the
I. W. VV. and all such. The reason for
suspecting something terrible was
about to happen was due to the fact
that the circular in large and staring
letters, read as follows:
"Bloody murder: iWoe unto you,
Thou Mellin's Tod infants; thou low
