Wage Bill to Affect
Pay of Many Women
Continued from Page One.)
found that 53 per cent of the women
were earning: less than that. The
bureau set a standard in 1916 of $125
as the prices necessary for olothing
per year for a wage-earning woman
and 68 per cent of the women exam
ined spent less than that for clothes
in 1916.
The advocates of this legislation as
sert that such a law wil lnot injure
business because Investigation has
proved that inefficient, underpaid girls
become more efficient when paid
enough to buy three square mean a
day and decent clothing. A government
investigation, they declare, showed that
in retail stores in Oregon after a min
imum wage of 19.25 was in effect In
Portland and $8.25 for the rest of the
state, the female labor cost Increased
only three mills per dollar of sales.

to where the hard pressure of mere
living disappears you . arrive at the
point where the possibility of more in
telligent action, more intelligent stady,
more comprehension of retail distribu
tion is possible. Higher wages, I be
lieve, make lower labor costs. In 1912
we put in a minimum wage of 18 per
week In our store, by far the greatest
specialty store in the world, employing
about 3,000 people, and doing the larg
est business In our line, and the best
evidence that It has been satisfactory
is that on April 1 of this year we in
creased the minimum wage to $10."
Those back of the bill are expecting
but little opposition to It in congress
because the merchants and others
whom It will affect favor the legisla
tion. Congress having passed a bill to
increase the., wages of all the federal
employees making less than $1,500 by
$120 at this session is hardly in a posi
tion to oppose legislation to give those
working for less than $8 a week an
J increase.
Two Deputies Held
Under Grave Charge

criticised the officers severely for fir
ing upon the ear and scouted the theory
that Lowery was shot by the negro.
The shooting took place on the Ferry
Pass road, the deputies having been
directed to proceed to the ferry and
there Intercept and arrest the negro
who, on the strength of a telephone
message from Sheriff Harvell, of Santa
Rosa county, was in an automobile.
on his way to Pensacola. Sheriff van
Pelt went to one ferry and the two
deputies named were despatched to the
other. It was at the ferry landing
where the two deputies were sent to,
that the automobile in which the ne
gro was a passenger with his charge,
landed. Sheriff Van Pelt, upon the ar
rival of the ferry at this point, saw
that his trip was fruitless and he
started to the other place. He planned
to meet his deputies there and either
station one or more at. the ferry and
return to the city or else was to re
main there himself. Just about the time
he approached the scene he heard the
shooting and made as quick time as
possible to the spot. Approaching the
location, he was told that "two men;
were dead," and believing that his!
deputies were injured in the melee, hej
lost no, time in making an investiga
tion. Learning that neither of his men
had been hurt, he conducted further
inquiry and ordered that the two depu
ties be held In custody until the serious
encounter could be cleared up by a
further investigation.
Coroner Will L. Johnson yesterday
empaneled a Jury to look Into and ar
rive at some conclusion relative to the
death of the negro, Jenkins, but the
inquiry was postponed until Monday
The Jury will get together in his office
at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning for the
inquiry.
News of the shooting was telephoned
to Sheriff Harvell of Santa Rosa coun
ty and it was not many hours before
the well-known officer from the adjoin
ing county, was in Pensacola, looking
