STENOGRAPHERS TO SEEK $3 DAY RATE Will Meet Officers of American Federation of Labor Tomorrow. Some definite action muat be made on the question of the 3 a day mini mum wace for the Stenographers Typewriters', Bookkeeper' and Aa- alstante' Union at Its meeting tomor row afternoon In Pythian Temple with officers of the American Feder ation of Labor, according to a state ment by Miss Margaret Stewart, sec retary of the union. The union will meet Secretary Frank Morrison, of the American Fed eration of Labor, and Secretary George Preston, of the International Association of Machinists. The fight for a t$- day minimum wage, being waged by the stenogra pher's union is significant because It will effect some 100 employes In th"e American Federation of Labor head quarters. These same employes are fighting for principles. It Is stated, for which their employers stand. If the 3 a day minimum wage plan Is adopted for these stenographers and typists who are employed In the headquarters of the American Fedra tlon of Labor, probably It will be adopted as the standard all through the United States, for the basis upon which salaries of stenographers aid typists will be decided A horizontal Increase of T200 is also sought by the union to meet the 'n creased cost in living expenses.

ALSO RELIEVES Provides Leasing of Improved Lands, Reserving Royalty 'to United States. An effort to compromise the row over the oil relief provisions of the general land leasing bill has been made by the Senate Committee on Public Lands. A new amendment has ed for the purpose of giving relief to locaters on land In Naval Reserve No. 2, In California and for of trying to overcome, the objections of the Navy- Department. xne amendment adopted mittee is a substitute for the Phelan amendment to which Secretary Dan iels has been, unrelentingly opposed. Senator Pittman of Nevada, who has been engineering the matter to a large extent, predicted today the op position of the Navy would be overcome by-the ITavy to Have Reyalty. In other quarters, however, it was predicted the substitute would still meet opposition In the Senate and from navy officials. Senator Pittman and those who have been trying to patch up the trouble and give some relief to locators who are clamoring to be protected, rely on the fact that the profits of operation are to go to the navy in the form' of royal ties to obviate part at least of the navy opposition. Oil Interests all over have been stirred up over the meas ure. Senator Pittman Insists, the sub stitute will encourage Independent operators to compete with the Stand ard OH and other big 'companies. Little Land ASeeted. In reference to the stltute, Senator Pittman said: "The public lands committee yester day adopted an amendment to be pro posed upon the floor of the Senate as a substitute for the Phelan amend ment in the general leasing bill. The amendment Is In- substance the same that was proposed recently by the Interior Department. "In the opinion of the Senate, com mittee, this amendment eliminates th provisions of the Phelan amendment that have been attacked by the ex treme conservationists throughout the country The opposllon of the Navy Department will undoubtedly be over come by the present amendment, and the Administration's general conserva tion measure, which has been pending for four years In Congress, permitted to become a law. "Under the present amendment, less 1 LOCATORS been adopt the purpose as may be in the com for a lease States for Department substitute. the country common sub- ted States affecting, the lands for which patent or lease is applied for shall be stayed until the Secretary of the Interior shall have finally passed upon said application, and In the event that he shall determine that the applicant is entitled to a patent or lease, then, and upon the issuance of the same, such action shall be dismissed."
