Recently Mrs. Read was promoted to the position of forewoman— or as she
would* term it— "forelady" of ,the ten or a dozen women who scrub for Uncle Sam.
Soon- after her- exaltation, she Issued an : 'order* that her force should no
; longer j refer to her aa a "charwoman," but should, invariably speak of her as a
"charlady." •*" " . ,■* ■ :;'■.....■:.:■...■',.'■.-*■..:■■.■■
Instantly insubordination 7 ?andirebellion asserted itself. Indignant little
groups discussed the matter to the neglect of duty. Finally, there was a formal
refusal to obey the order. - 1 "" * **
Then Mrs. Read by subtle insinuation made it understood that it would be
the worse for any one who disobeyed a ."charlady" who was a "forelady."
The working force/Said: "Oh, very well," or words to that effect, and re- ]
fused to mop under oppression. . ; " I
The difficulty lies in the fact that all of them are under civil service and
are; only discharged by act of congress or something equally ceremonious.
