SEEK $3 DAY RATE
Will Meet Officers of American
Federation of Labor
Some definite action muat be made
on the question of the 3 a day mini
mum wace for the Stenographers
Typewriters', Bookkeeper' and Aa-
alstante' Union at Its meeting tomor
row afternoon In Pythian Temple
with officers of the American Feder
ation of Labor, according to a state
ment by Miss Margaret Stewart, sec
retary of the union.
The union will meet Secretary
Frank Morrison, of the American Fed
eration of Labor, and Secretary
George Preston, of the International
Association of Machinists.
The fight for a t$- 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.

IN OIL LAND FIGHT
Substitute for Phelan Amend-
ment Seeks to Meet
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
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
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
Oil Interests all over

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
"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

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." '
