MAY TIB UI STEAMERS.
The engineers of the Inter-Island
steamers have prepared a
schedule of wages which they think
is the proper rating and have pre
sented the same to the company.
It is possible, from the whisperings
that reach outside of the engineer's
department, that a strike may fol
low should the Inter-Island Com
pany lefuse to accept the revised
That there is more in the move
ment that appears on the surface
is made manifest by the statements
of some of the men that resigna
tions of a number of the engineers
havo been received at the head
office of the company.
It would seem that the new
schedule has heen in the hands of
the company for some .time, but
any action on it has been delayed
until the men have como to the
conclusion that a move either for
acceptance or rejection of the
schedule must be made and made
in short order.
Engineers not holding U. S.
licenses, no matter how proficient
they may be in the art of engineer
ing, cannot serve on these Island
The company has kept the mat
ter of the new sehedAle very quiet
in hopes of arriving at some settle
ment of the trouble and avoiding a
complication of matters, but it
seems that the men havo become a
little tired of waiting. The matter
has now heen brought to a climax
by the engineers demanding an ac
ceptance of the schedulo as present
ed, or they will qi it.
Passengers returning from Hono
lulu on the -Kinau state thut the
schedule of wages demanded is
$175 per month for the chiet en
gineer, $150 per month for the first
assistants and $120 per month for
the second assistant engineers.
It was the understanding that
all of the engineers have resigned
and unless thoir demands are com
plied with they will all refuse to
work after Saturday of this week.

Honolulu, November 2C. The
Murine Engineers' Benevolent
Society held a meeting last nirht
in the Knights-of Pythias hall, at
which there were over thirty mem
bers of tho profession prese it.
iVhile nothing in detail could be
learned from those present in re
gard to what passed at the moot
ing, it is said that the situation
was discussed but that no action
toward a strike against the Ir.tor
Island company at the present time
The meeting held was a regular
one of the lodge, which holds ses
sions semimonthly. Until the next
meeting on December 9, there will
be nothing doing. That the ques
tion of strike is a serious one with
tho men1 is also certain, and if their
demands arc not granted they will
leave the employ of the Inter-Island
and seek other positions, as
they claim that tho scale of wages
is by no means commensurate with
the cost of living in Honolulu.
