COTTER Broadway Seward CHEAPNESS IS UPPERMOST IN LANDOF JAPS SAN KKANCISCO, Jan. Ifc. — A locomotive engineer receives 50 cents a day and a primary school teacher $15.50 a month in Japan, according to A. Ulut^isuma, member of a party of Japanese statisticians, which vis ited here recently after a tour of the United States. The average newspaper or maga zine writer does not receive* over $.*>•'* a month, while the average monthly income of a Tokio doctor is $50, ac-, cording to Mutasuma. “Some of the boilermakers in Ja pan are getting the unheard of wage of $2 a day," he stated. “The ship building industry is lively.and the wages of boilermakers has advanced decidedly since the war began. “Railroad firemen receive .'10 cents a day and firemen 25 cents. Railroad boilermakers are getting 40 and 50 cents a day, but these men are flock ing into the shipyards, because of the higher wages paid there. “We have no trade union on the American basis. The cost of iiving is quickening the labor union idea among our peoples. The school teach ers and railroad men are agitating for labor unions to help their condi tions. There is no set opposition to labor unions in Japan." ■ ■■■- -- — GANNERYMEN ARE SENDING GOODS NORTH SEATTLE, Jan. 18. — Lumber, 1 machinery, box shocks and other sup plies for the 11)18 season ot the Alas Imn fish canneries are being sent north more than a month earlier than in previous years.
