As the Fourth of July comes on Mon
day this year an effort is being niadi
to have the local stores close all daj
on the holiday and thus give clerks
and other employes a nice holiday,
from Saturday till Tuesday. But this
very same length of idleness operates
to defeat the project and merchants
are, undecided what to do. Members
of the Retail Clerks' union are circu
lating an agreement for signatures in
which the merchants bind themselves
to keep closed all day long and the
general closing depends upon their
success. The clothing merchants,
however, will remain open until noon.
Having been unable to agree with the
clerks as to the holiday the clothiers
met at the Merchants' association
headquarters and decided to close for
the afternoon only.
