The committee appointed at the last
meeting to interview the proprietor of
the st. James Theatre reported that he
Idsired tn be known si all times as
friendly to union labor, The delegates
were Instructed tn notify their respec
tive anions that the council had no
grievance against the St. James theatre.
The committee appointed to visit the
Pacific Grocery Co, made an interesting
i report to the council. A demonstration
whs given them of the methods used by
different fruit canning concerns. Cans
of various fruits were opened and shown
in some cases to be only a liTt.lo over
half full and in other cases to be half
water. In contrast to these goods the
committee were shown brands known
as "The Quality" and "Solid Tack Ever
Best." The latter brands were without
exception solidly packed and the fruits
were in the best possible condition. With
the prevailing high prices of all food
stuffs it is needful that all purchasers
should get both quality and quantity for
their money, and the council believes
that the working people should know
what they are buying. The Committee
was retained by the council and will be
known ns the "Provision Committee,"
and will in the future endeavor to ascer
tain where honest goods can be obtained
and report to the council.

Women Who Work.
There are 0.000,000 wage earning wo
men In the Dotted Slates, working not
only for less wages than men tn the
same industries, but very frequently
they work longer hours and under less
satisfactory snnltary conditions than
men. Statistics of the bureau of la
bor show that the percentage of wo
men workers is steadily growing, and
this is attributed to the increase in
cost of living, which is a permanent
condition, as well as to the growth of
the city population, women in cities
