ed to the senate that the gasoline in

ership and other branches in the petro
leum industry be made and an estab
lishment of gasoline standards be provided.

NEW lORK. April 24. United
States Steel today declared an extra 3
per cent dividend on common stock in
addition to the regular quarterly divi
dend on common and preferred. The
net earnings for the quarter ending
March 31st were over $113,000,000, as
compared with $105,(XX),000 for the prev

Salary Question
to Be Voted On
George H. Meyers filed yesterday
with the citv clerk a petition demand
ing that the city trustees publish a no
tice and call for an election by the qual
ified electors of the city on the question
of approval or rejection of ordinance
No. 143, being an ordinance to fix the
salaries of the city trustees of Carson
City for the year 1917, in accordance
with an act passed by the last legisla
ture. The list of names to the petition it
is claimed represents 10 per cent of the
voters of the citv.
The men working on the roads for
the county who struck yesterday morn
ing for an increase of wages from $3
to $3.50 per day, met last evening with
County Commissioners Wiley and
Daugherty, Larson the other member
of the board, being absent, and talked
the matter over.
The discussion brought out the fact
that the matter of wages was covered
by statute, section 6 of the Revised
Laws of the state being as follows:
"Compensation to other than road in-
spector shall lie not to execeu ior a
day's work on public roads by one man,
or not to exceed $6 by one man and a
span ot two drait animais. ami i..-o
additional for each additional span.
The person so compensated shall, with
out additional charge, furnish such
tools, implements, vehicles and other
necessary equipment as may be neces
sary to his work."
amended, but that does not apply to
the wage per day, only to the hours.
It would appear then that the men
were entirely within their rights when
they asked for the increase and the
County Commissioners should grant
the demands made. It occurs to the
Appeal that in matters of so much mo
ment and of so much importance to the
wage earner that the County Commis
sioners would consult the district at
torney and ask for his opinion when
matters of this kind come before them.

really all in the course of a life time.
Miss Murray, having proven a tremend

Another pleasing Paramount comedy
