OK THE WAY
COOKS AND WAITERS' STRIKE
A CONTEST BETWEEN UN
IONS AND ASSOCIATION.
Word was received today at the
headquarters of the striking cooks,
■waiters and waitresses that the
first installment of the relief fund
for the strikers. $1000, had been
mailed. This news was received
With joy by the men and women
■who have been carrying on the
fight for the past ten days.
Both sides in the restaurant and
hotel strike remained firm today,
with but little change in the situ
ation. Nearly all of the restaurants
outside of the association have
signed up the new scale and con
tract, the struggle now simmering
down to a contest between the un
ions and the Hotel and Restaurant
Keepers' Protective association, it
is said today that the bosses are of
fering financial inducements to
some of their old men to go back
to work, and some of the houses
say that a portion of their old
crews have returned, but this is de
nied by the unions.
In answer to the further charge
made that the unions quit tool
abruptly and without notice, the
unions state that the contract was
made with the association and not:
with individuals and that com
plaints as to the violation of the
contract by members of the asso
ciation were made time and again
to the association without action
being taken. It is charged that
members of the association, indi
vidually, and the association, col
lectively, broke the contract, and
that in order to make the strike ef
fective and prevent the importation
of a lot of outside help it became'
necessary to act on short notice
and treat all alike. i
As evidence that their demands
are fa ; r the unions point to the
fact that nearly all of the leading
restaurants outside of the "trust"
have signed the scale and are go
ing ahead with business. It is be
lieved that a majority of those in
the association would do likewise
were it not for the restraining
force wielded over the little fel
lows by the big houses in the

James Schoolcraft Sherman,

ABERDEEN, Wash.. May 20. — I

From that day forward it was jug

plans of water relief, until now,
with another summer upon us, we
have no water. First It was jug
gling over the need and later the
method of building the standplpea.
Then it was over the site of the res

to be "sanded" down. Finally it
was juggling with Hueiter, the con
tractor, and here we are again in
the heated season and no water.
Of all the many evidences of in
competency, unfitness and disre
gard of the people's rights by the
present city administration the
handjlng of the problem of water re

have demonstrated that he people
of the Kenwood-Lidgerwood district
probably had hit upon the right
plan of action last fall when they
launched a recall for the head of
the city government. Had that been
done the present water shortage
would probably not have prevailed.
