Phillip Markmen, secretary of the
local brewers union, this afternoon
stated to The Argus that the question
of the amount of beer the men are al
lowed or the number of times they
are given time on to drink is the least
of the contention of the strikers. He
"We are striking because the com
pany has not signed a new contract
which we submitted in April and
does not guarantee to live up to the
old one till a new one is agreed to.
The company has not made us any
proposition. Under the old scale we
worked 9 hours for $1G a week and
had beer every hour. We now ask $17
for S hours' work, with 5 minutes for
beer four times a day. Fourteen brew
ers struck this morning, eight drivers
and the stablemen quit this afternoon
and tomorrow morning the bottlers
and helpers will also go out."
The company side Is that 10 days
ago the negotiations were opened be
tween the company and the men look
ing to a renewal of the contract, that
according to the terms of the old con
tract the men were paid $16 a week
for 9 hours' work, which included 5
minutes beer tim each hour and 15
minutes lunch time, which netted prac
tically an S-hour day. Under the new
contract, the company says the men
demanded an increase in wages of a
dollar a week and an 8-hour day with
the same beer and lunch time as here
tofore. The company conceded the
raise in wages to $17 a week, but de
clined to accede the reduction in hours
or more than five minutes beer time
four times a day, together with the
15-minute lunch time.
This morning the company put the
new schedule into effect.

The call for clothing by the Royal
Neighbor relief committee is receiving
a hearty response, resulting in many-
large bundles of blankets, comforts,
shoes, etc. One Royal Neighbor sent
a barrel well packed with clothing.
The contributions today were: Mrs.

Mrs. Sarah Hillier, Mrs. Louise Burt,

Waters Shoe company, and four others. !
The committee is especially grate
ful to the different firms contributing

not all, have already made contribu

assistance is tnererore especially ap
preciated. "We are not expecting from
any who feel that they have already
contributed all they can," said a mem

who have anything they can spare as
well as not we hope they will send it,
