Some Figures From a Review of the
Labor Situation by M. A.
laborers There Have Longer Hours
By the terma of the law of 1899 all con
tractors undertaking public work are
bound to observe a maximum number of
hours for a day's work and a minimum of
wages to be paid to the laborer. The rate
of wages is based upon the normal and
current rates of labor in the place speci
fied. The rate is to be obtained by in
ferring, if possible, to existing agree
ments between syndicates and workmen
- f the locality, or, in case of the nonex-

Than Those of America.
The condition of tho French laboring
man has materially improved in the last
decude, but, according to reports, much
lo yet to be desired. Hours of work are
till Jong and wages are low when com
pared with those of the same class of
workmen in this country. The following
facts aro taken from a review of the la

Lists made in this manner are printed and
distributed to the public.
From these printed schedules, Issued in
the various parts of France, which deal
mostly with those laborers employed upon
public roads and bridges, artillery and
government factories, the following list
of wages is taken. The wages of an ap
prentice, who receives the smallest com
pensation of any class of workmen, va
ries from 1.J5 cents per hour in Port Avln,
Finistere, to 6.7 cents at Lyons and Sa
thonay in the Ain. The extremes paid for
unskilled labor are 2.9 cents in Vannes to
11.5 cents at Paris in the government fac
tories. Carpenters are paid 17.3 cents at
P'aris 14.4 cents at Havre, while in sev
eral towns in the south of France they
are contented with 5.8 cents an hour. At
Saint Jean Pied de Port, whei'e the low
est salaries in the republic seem to pre
vail, they get but 4.8 cents for an hour's
The highest wages paid are naturally
those of Paris where 19.3 cents an hour
are paid to the following workmen: Ma
sons, planers of floors, art ironsmlths.
tracers of iron molding, decorators, mold
ers and gilders. Plasterers receive 21.2
cents stone polishers and .floor Joiners
working in bitumen, 23.2 fine carpenters,

If these workmen, who are little short of
artists, could obtain work for three hun

they would receive as much as an under

About 500 flour mill employes gathered

Possibility of a Strike Is Seen In the Pres
ent Situation.
The trainmen and conductors have
served an ultimatum on the railroad offi
cials at St. Louis. E. E. Clark of the
conductors writes to St. Paul friends that
he looks for definite developments by Jan.
26. The men ask a final answer in re
gard to their demands of a 20 per cent
increase in wages. The systems are be
ing polled to see wliether the men wish
to maintain a strike. If the demand is
refused, the west may possibly see a
strike equal to that of 1894.

This train Is the finest ever produced
by any railway company. It runs every
day In the year between St. Paul. Minne

road. It carries private compartment
sleeping cars and sixteen-section sleepers,
with berths longer, higher and wider than
those of any other sleepers In America.
Its buffet library smoking cars are rich
and comfortable, and the dining cars are
equal to the best cafes.
The Pioneer Limited Is the only perfect

Their gentle action and good effect on
the system really make them a perfect

them. Carter's Little Liver Pills may
