He feels that the commission has not treated Bessemer quite fairly. When asked what he thought about the mattoi, Georg* Ross, president of »he city council, said: "I’m not sur prised, as I felt as if it was all planned out and the petition would he denied. In my opinion there were a large number of people who were supposed to go before the commission represent ’ng the people and to ask that a Union station he erected in Bessemer, who. when they appeared before that body did not fulfill expectations." George Rutledge, president of the Bessemer Commercial club, stated that he was of the opinion that it would be better for the town to have several adequate depots within a short dis tance of the business section of the city lhan to have a Union tat ion so far out as the location decided on by the commission. j William H. II Judsoti. editor of the ! Bessemer Weekly, stated: "That's just | what T expected. There was a division i of tine people on this question and f the different roads will construct de pots that will be adequate for the needs and a credit to the town. I will be sat isfied." , T>r .1 S. Winters, alderman from See , end waid, stated that he thought Bes semer had gotten "the hot end of the bargain." He also stated that the iti j "ms* went into the matter individually l instead of collectively, and that th*‘v could never hope to win unless they t j stood together. I E. Li. Huey, alderman from Fifth ward, stated he was well satisfied ’ itii the decision if depots were constructed C sufficient to accommodate the travelers of this city and to meet the needs of , i lie growing business He said he . would rather have several depots that ~. would be a credit to the town than tc have a Union station so far out of tne : city as the site selected. George H. Stevenson, secretary of thi* Board of Trade, said: “I'm willing It take the best we can get. The action of the railroad commission in revok ing the original order was brought about by influence over which we had no control and T would have hated tc have a Union station at the point tiu\ had selected, and would much rathei have individual depots if they would begin work on them at once. T urn very glad they are going to Ret action at once, even if they have sidetracked the Union station." | THEFTS The following thefts were reported to the police yesterday: Mis. P. B.

J WAGE INCREASE FOR BRITISH WORKMEN Higher Cost of Living Bal anced by Higher Pay London, April 25.—(Correspondence of the Associated PresB.)—War as a wage raiser has brought to a consider able proportion of the laboring classes In England some compensation for the Increased cost of living. Social work ers estimate that the increased cost of living averages is at least 10 per cent, while the average increase in j wages is not over five per cent. The j plentiful supply of overtime work in | most trades, makes it easy for most workmen to more than even matters. The upward tendency of the English workingman’s wages was very marked in March. According to the official Hoard of Trade reports, the increases ^ranted during the month reached a total of nearly $365,000. The number of workpeople who shared the in creases was 440,000. Increased wages In some of the lead ing branches of industry are summed up briefly as follows. Comparative Figures Railwayman—All round Increase of 76 cents a week Longshoremen —Increases varving from 26 cents to $2 a week Policemen--War bonus of 76 cents a week upwards. Carpenters—War bonus of $1 to *1.50 a week. General Laborers—Increases of 75 cents to $1.60 a week. Miners—Employers generally offer to per cent advance In pay; miners demand 20 per cent. Postal Employes (Including telephone and telegraph workers)—Increase of $1 a week has been demanded. Gas Workers—Increases averaging $1 a week. Bakers—Increase of $1.25 a week asked, but employers’ offer of 76 cents accepted pending negotiations. Textile Workers—Bonus for overtime work in factories doing work on army clothing. Boot and Shoe Workers—War bonus for 5 to 10 per cent granted in some places Coopersmiths—Average wage before war $9; now $12.50. Clerks—Some increases; 180.000 grocers' assistants have asked readjustment of wages: similar movements pending in other branches. Engineering and Building Trades Work ers—Some sections have secured substan tial increases. The number of unemployed in Great Britain shows a large falling off the past February and March as compared with the corresponding months of last year The board of trade's labor gazette prints statistics from the government’s 403 laboi exchanges according to which there wen 87.004 names on the register last montl as against 100,616 for February and 123,71 for March of last year. More Situations Open The number of vacancies In employ ment reported to ihe exchanges alst show an Increase over the late wintci of 1914, having a daily average o 5746. or 100 more than the average fci February and 1600 more than the avei age for March of last year. London passed through the wintci with fewer cases of destitution dc manding relief from the poor fund, than any winter within the memory u the present poor law' officials. The war, in fact, has enabled man thousands of people belonging to th. classes which usually must be helped to dispense with this kind of relief and has even put them in possession of funds more than sufficient to mee their needs, l^orfdon's pauper popula tion has decreased steadily during thi past three months. The London's guardians, at the begin ning of 1915, were providing for 100, 000 paupers. April 1 showed the iota decreased by' a further 3000. It is evident, however, that these de creases are in part at least, deceptive being accounted for, not by improver conditions, but by the fact that a grea deal of relief is being administered b. new agencies, such as the special wa iclief funds and the old age pensions ■ I PRAY GOD WE WILI NEVER HAVE TO FIGH1 ; DECLARES MARSHALl (ContiovM from Page One) biles which brought them to 'Aubun 1 at 12:45. a Immediately upon his arrival here th vice president and Mrs. Marshall wer 1 tendered an informal reception.
