CO H WONT RAISE CITY WAGES WM Like tlic rest of the country, Spokane H lias watched the dollar shrink until it is H -worth only sixty, cents in Roods. Like the M l'cst ol' us, the employees of the city of H Spokane found that their salaries and m wages were inadequate. So they came in H for a raise, whereupon the city council B jessed the buck to the voters. Were they H willing to give the police and the firemen M an increase of 25 per cent and the rest M of the city employees a boost of 15 per m cent? The matter came to a vote. By a B two to one majority the citizens declined M o authorize the raise. B Wc believe that the reason for the re- m . fusal is to be found in the suspicion, usu- M ally justified, that surrounds the adminis- M tration of most American cities. The B average citizen believes that municipal M offices' arc crowded with political hanc:- B erS on and camp followers who regularly B draw their pay from the city treasury. B witliout rendering needed service. So B -ivor "0 citizen seen va H money used to i)ay political debu or H acquire political credits that he has be- H come a confirmed cynic in all matters H relating to the expenditure of public rev- H enues. It is impossible for him to conceive H of a municipal administration without a H long and deep trough lined with habitual H l,hx eaters. And he hates to pay these H crib feeders any more money than he has H to. "If the real city workers need more H pay," he argues, "lop off the loafers' sal- H aries. Enough will be saved to give the H deserving ones what they need." H In most cities he is right, too. Tliere- H fore it is to the interest of the legitimate . H municipal employees to see to it that the H parasites and political pansuckers are H given the boot. November Sunset. ibbbm ra pi ra M TOOIl TIME TO INJURE THE LUM- B BER INDUSTRY H Lumber Workers Industrial Uniovv No. M r.00, Industrial Workers of the World. H have called a strike in logging camps in H eastern Washington, northern Idaho and H v pstern Montana,, at cordig to advice ve- H ceived. The primary eauso for the strike H it was said, was a raise to $1.25 a day for H board. Other demands of the lumber H wotkors include release of all "class wav H prisoners," immediate wfthdrawal of the H troops from Russia, minimum wage scale H of 15 a day, not more than $1 a day for H board, eight hours from camp to camp. H free blankets sheets and pillows, bath H house, dry room and wash room he fur- H nished seven days a week; right of free H sneech, free press and free assemblage. B all men to be hired on the Job and not H through employment offices and no dis- H crimination against union men. B The lumber industry is prosperous just H at j)rosent and more men are employed at H r higher wages than ever before. If the ra M ' dicals are successful in starting a strike B and causing disturbance among lumbpr H workers, thov will grontly damage many B lines of industry in the west and thous- B ands of people will'be out of work. H SUGAR SITUATION IN THE U. S. Sugar nroduction, supply and distribu H tion, and prices to consumer present a H difficult problem in this country. The best B solution at present time seems to reqairo K the purcharr of ihc Tulwin crop for 1920. , This can be accomplished bv a continuu H tion of the U. S. Sugar Equalization H bpaj'd of the food administration, which H - GECJ&res P"t-! ;''Vv- Dpfvmbor 31 In B order to ?np mt inflation of prices and to B abili'e 'r(' -u p nn equitable diftribu B tion of sugar, the govarrappnt pmehaaed H the Cuban supply for 1919.

Domestic sugar producers, including the sugar beet muur.tr of the west, ax'e urging upon the government the continuation of the U. S. oi'rar Lquali7ation board with power to purchase the Cuban sugar product. in.cn ornspect of high prices for sugar threatens the first impulse is to blame the 'sugar beet industry of the west. Not only as a protection, to their own industry from unjust criticism, but also the public from high prices, the sugar beet produc ers desire the government to continue its present attitude of controlling the situa tion. The unfortunate phase of the whole matter is that just before the world war the government attempted to force a Tree trade poVcy on this country, threatening the very life and continuance of the sugar beet idustry in the west, which was only saved h1' the demand and exigencies of the wnr The U. S. produces from a fourth to a third of the sugar supply needed f or homo consumption, when wo should raise our requirement here if proper encour agement had been given the sugar beet indu."tv,r of ih vt Ar it is w rusl nav millions of dollars to Cuban planters that should have been to our American farmers and factories. n n ra PRICE OF WHEAT NOT FIXED That price fixing by law has always failed and always will fail, is the state ment mde recently in an address by Jul ius II. Barnes, chairman of the U.S. Grain corporation. Later in the address Mr. Barnes said that the Grain corporation was not a price fixing body which all grain farmers will agree with. As a mat ter of fact, there was no price fixing by law, in the case, of wheat. The law mere ly guaranteed a minimum price in order to encourage the growing of more wheat to supply the war needs. The President took advantage of his power to control the movement of wheat and made the minimum price the maximum price for first grade wheat. Notwithstanding the fact that there was no price fixing by law -nr tlm Clvin corporation was not a price fixing body, the price was effectually fixed, as many farmers learned when thev sold their grain at the "fixed" price, less the various discussion on account of the grade and weight. m ri 1 WHO PAYS Senator Hitchcock attempts to meet criticism of sending 5,000 soldiers to Sil esia to conduct a plebiscite by saying that it makes no charge on the Treasury, Ger many havng agreed to pay the expenses of the army of occupation. Yes, but who nnvs for the men who may be killed in that enterprise, and who pays for the withdrawal of 5,000 men from produce tive occupation in this country? lb ru rti RATIFY TUB-TREATY , If the League of Nations covenant and the Peace Treaty had been submitted to a popular vote of the American people ihrce months ago, an overwhelming ma jority would have declared itself in favor of ratification without amendments and without reservations. Today that over whelming majority has vanished. The President bar been losing ground, the op position has been gaining steadily, a face clearly demonstrated by the result of Mr. Wilson's personal appeal to the country. He was received cordially and courteous ly while the opposition senators aroused almost hysterical enthusiasm. Neverthe . less, the Treaty with the League of Na tions will and should be ratified, but ndt without reservations or interpretations which clos-ly define the attitude of the United States. Considering world condi tions, no other course seems reasonably and honorably possible. Sunset. Ri to to IDLENESS NO CREDIT Retail merchants are wisely adopting the theory that a auan who is out of a job by his own choice is an unsafe debtor. No retail merchant can be expected to ex tend credit to a man who can get work and won't take it. A perfectly trustwor thy man is sometimes out of employment for a short time, through no fault of his own but in these days there are jobs far all who. are willing to work. A man can. with perfect propriety quit the iob he has but he cannot with credit to himself, re fuse to seek and find a now employment.
