The proposition of settlement makes no maximum wages, yet the operators will probably decline to grant an' higher wages than $5. If the min ers refuse to work for the reduced wage, they will probably be expelled by the lessees who have always paid the Hcale or above. Another matter in the agreement is that there is no time limit. The union may call another strike tomor rom, if it so desires, although people who have interests here outside of ' mining have always hoped that time limit would be placed, thus In curing peace for a stated time.

Three thousand laborers are wanted in Six Mile Canyon east from Lombard for railroad construction work. Large pay is offered and it is point ed out that conditions of living are very good. It is feared that work will have to be suspended owing to the great dearth of labor. The work can give employment to over four thousand men for a year. When I entered the plants the familiar noise of whirling spindles and jumping looms crashed on my ears. I found both English and American machinery, and in places a lot of Japanese machines patterned after the Erllsh models. I was told that the English was preferred to the American because heavier and there fore stronger. It puzzled me at first to see why they should want strong er machines, seeing that the Japanese people are not large, but small. The answer came when I was made to realize which was quickly the cae that their operatives are far less skillful than ours. Crowds at Muchiitos. I was amazed to see a crowd of people about the machinery. The gentleman with me, noticing this, said It could not fall to surprise Americans, whereas, with Japanese visiting American factories, the as tonishment Is Just the other way that there should be so few people about the machines. Hut, on the other hand, my con ductors pointed out that while very much more etlieient, our operatives are very much more highly paid. They spoke of $1.25 being the puy of a good woman operative in the south, whereas the average pay to women operatives In the Osaka mills is only 15 cents, while that of a very i old times ulrlllfnl fine 1m nnlv 23 centn np 11 lit- ' slble that schooling should not be worse than a farce a tragedy. The Men Quit. Rut this aside. If the grown wo men earn on an average only 15 cents a day, what pay do the chll dren get? Six cents! Six cents for a workday of 12 hours! That is what they begin with. When they grow older and more efficient they get more; but from 6 cents to 15 cents there Is not much graduation. The highest such a ladder is low. indeed. It goes without saying that such a life Is dreary in the extreme. In deed, it Is a matter of fact that 80 per cent of the men employed in the biggest and most prosperous of the Osaka mUls leave within a year. They seek less exueting labor else where.
