In your issue of the 14th a local
reads thus: "The band boys wish to
express their thanks to all, and espe
cially to Mrs. A. L. Slemmons, who so
materially aided them in the success
attained in their recent concert."
Now, in justice to Mrs. A. L. Slem
mons, "* tt> say to the public, the
i-eoc /as not a band concert,
but was gotten tip and managed bv
her and assisted by her associates of
local talent, and the whole proceeds
donated by Mrs. A. L. Slemmons for
the benefit of the band: therefore, to
Mrs. A. L. Slemnions all credit is due.
In reference to another concert men
tioned in the same paper, to be given
on the ilfjth, will say this will be de
cidedly a band concert, managed by
the leader, 11. Driscoll. and kindly a>
sisted by some of the best local talent,
and if it is equally a musical success,
as was Mrs. A. L. Slemrnons'concert,
the audience will certainly be de
lighted and the band have cause to feel
Respectfully yours for harmony, both
musically and socially. M. K. 1».
Want higher Wages.
A petition to tin- city council, signed
l»y the street men and sidewalk build
ers. was presented at the last council
meeting and tabled This petition was
a request that the petitioners he grant
(?d the sum of Li~>c per hour for work
done by them for the city, and in view
of the quality of work performed by
theiu we are of the opinion that the
city fathers should h *ed this call.
Said petition had the endorsement of
all or nearly all of the business house*
ol the city, as well as numerous other
citizens and people who realize that
the cost of living has advanced far in
excess of what the present scale of
wage- will (rover when it is taken into
consideration that their employment is
not steady, as they seldom ever yet in
more than twenty days in a month.
We sincerly hope that, in the interest
of fair play that our city council will
not drop this matter here, but wili
again consider it in a more favorable
light and lind it to the best interest of
all to grant their request.
