The in- | crease was made by the company due j to its enormous prosperity—Its net | earnings are now estimated ut $1,000, 000 a day. The increase Is but one of many recently made by large employing concerns throughout the country, j Among them are: Ten per cent increase to 35,000 'employes of the American Woolen Company, Boston. j Ten per cent increase to the 83,000 ( employes of the Cotton Manufactur ers Association, of New Bedford, i Thirty-five to forty per cent in crease to the 32,000 persons employ ed by the American Clothing Maufac turers Association, New York.

This had j not been determined finally. In each case, In announcing the j increases the concerns said they were ; made to enable their employes to ; meet the advancing cost of living. E. j II. Gary, chairman of the steel cor-1 poration said: "Ordinarily the ques- | ! tion of wages would not come up for consideration or decision at this time ; of the year, but In consequence of ' the abnormal conditions now existing , it has been decided to Increase the ι wage rates of our Iron and steel com ' panies about ten per cent, effective ' December 15. As to the other depart- 1 ' ments, increases will be equitably > proportioned. ι "The Increase is the third the com 1 pany has made during the year. Its 1 pay roll for 1915 was $176.800.864 the I total will be above $200.000,000 and , if high wages continue the 1917 roll ι will approach $250.000,000." » The Eastman Kodak Company of ' Rochester, Ν.
