Anniversary Tomorrow
DOUGLAS. March 8.?At 6 p. m.,

history of Douglas island. It swept a
part of Front street, burning many
business houses to the ground and ]
costing the business men many thous
ands of dollars. As the people were
eating supper the fire-alarm suddenly
clanged its warning. The fire had
started at a restaurant which stood
where the Republic Bar now stands;
the fire then spread to the Douglas
hotel and swept the whole place on
either side for some distance.
The fire tested the mettle of Doug

again and built much nicer places than
those destroyed. It also exemplified
the good of having a bunch of fine
fie men such as Douglas possesses.

Secretary Wilson Not
Special Representative
NEW YORK. March 8.?Secretary
of Labor William B. Wilson in a state
ment in which is apparent an answer
to criticisms that he would he a spe
cial pleader in the administration for
organized labor, said:
"It would not be accurate that I rep
resent organized labor. I shall rep
resent the government. However, the
point of view has always much weight
in ones making up his mind upon the
proper attitude of the government in
matters."
WAGE STANDARD IS
SUBJECT TO DISCUSSION
CHICAGO, March 8.?Managers of
the big department stores in this city,
testifying before the State Senate com
mittee that is investigating the wages
of women prevailing here, declared
that the proposed minimum wage-scale
of $12 a week is an impossibility. The
employers, practically without excep
tion, hold that low wages have abso
lutely nothing to do with morality.
Many fallen women have been called
to controvert the contention that there
is no connection between low wages
and morality. They testified that star
vation wages for women have every
thing to do with the social evil.
