The increase is said by Postmaster
General Burleson to be due to iucrea-(■$>
sed salaries paid employes of the tele
phone and telegraph. True it was, un
der private ownership of these utilities,
many employes received meager wages,
but nevertheless the wages paid these
selfsame employes usually Were com
mensurate with the ability displayed
by the workers. Telegraph operators,
in minor positions, received net more
than $40 a mouth, in many instances,
but in larger cities, qualified opera
tors, working under the bonus system,
frequently were able to earn $150 to
$200 a month, depending entirely upon
ability to accurately and rapidly trans

If the public is to be continually con -1

telegraph rales, in order that obscure
employes of the wire communication
systems may be coddled by the gov

greatly increased wages, the, |iufilic

itself, is entitled to some coddling, in

local store here is but a branch of 23 stores
crating throughout the northwest with head
quarters in Lewiston, Idaho. All merchandise is
bought by C. J. Breier, owner of the stores, di
rect from the manufacturers, thereby eliminating
the jobber's probt, also the traveling man's ex
penses, which means a great deal. Our competi
tors will tell you that The Hub store is a # cheap
place at which to buy, or that the merchandise
shows it. When the truth is known, Mr. Breier's
buying power is so much greater than most mer
chants' that it enables him to buy much cheaper
in the brst place. If you have never been in The
Hub, make it a point to come in and see us when
in town.
