Capt. 8. E. Blunt, commandant at
tbe arsenal, when asked thia morn
ing as to the reason for tbe change.
said: -It is simply a readjustment
ot wages at the arseatl in aexr-'aaet)
with the law. There are 48em
piojes in ma anop. ui this num
ber tbe wages ot 96 have been in
creased; the wazes of 186
have not beea changed, while
the wages of 2cS have been
decreased. The Increases and de-
creases,vary from 1 caat to to cent.
la addition to these changes, some ot
tne men ta certain lines have beea
increased an even qaartor and othsra
decreased an eqanl amount. The new
scale was adopted in order to brioe
tbe wage system In conformity with
the eight hoar law; la other words,
that a day's wages may be made di
visible by eight. To accomplish this
a change of a cent or two, either
way, was fa numerous instance!
all that was essential. An
other reason was to bring the arsen
al regulations under tbe law which
provides that the wages paid by the
the government for labor-shall be
similar to those paid by factories en;
ploying similar grade ot labor
in tbe immediate vLinity the gov
