NIGHT WORKERS GET HIGHER PAY Street Maintenance Bureau Puts New St. Louis Flushing Machines to Work, Drivers Getting Extra Wages The board of public works yesterday presented to the council an ordinance providing for the number of persons to be employed by the bureau of street maintenance and Inspection of the de partment and fixing their several com pensations. The only changes In tho draft of this ordinance from tho ordinance now in force are that two additional men are provided, designated as drivers of Hush ing wagons, each with two large horses, at a salary of $4.50 per diem each, night work. The board has recently received from St. Louis the two street Hushing ma chines which were authorized to be purchased, which must bo operated at night. The board cannot procure drivers for these machines for this night work for the same price which is paid teamsters for day work, and therefore provided that they be paid $4.50 per night, nnd theso additional teamsters with teams are necessary to operate these Hushing machines in order that the day force may be Intact. One other thing Is made by the addi tion of a provision that the nine gang foremen shall each furnish a horse and buggy at his own expense. The salaries of the nine foremen in the present or dinance are placed at $90 per month.
