When it was first organized, com mon labor in this city was receiv ing $1.50 per day and 10 hours com prised a day's work. The union suc ceeded in securing a wage id' $2.25 per day and has reduced tne hours of work to eight hours per day. The union spent all the money It had in its treasury and |5000 of American labor union funds in car rying the eight hour day ordinance to the supreme court when the law was declared constitutional. If the union succeeds in securing a charter from the American Federa tion of Labor it is believed that it will accomplish, If possible, more good in the future than in the past. At the meeting of the Central Labor union last Monday evening, members of the cement workers' and building laborers' unions stated that these unions would probably be represented by delegates in the central union in the near future. The painters and paper hangers will receive an advance in wages of 50 cents per day on April 16. This will increase their pay from $3.50 per day to $4 for eight hours work. The new scale has been accepted by all the large contractors.

A good musical and literary program is promised and an enjoyable time is anticipated.

The object of the legaue is primarily to bring about a more consistent exercise of the purchasing power along union lines These leagues are operating very successfully ln all the coast cities. The meeting is called for 8 pm. A. W. Jones of the cigarmakers' union, who has Interested himself in the organization of the label league, received a letter from the Women's International Label league, saying that the charter ap plied for recently by the local league would be forwarded at once.

SURE OF RATE VICTORY RAILROAD BRANCH OF THE SENATE DYING HARD, BUT THE PRESIDENT IS TRIUMPH ING — HOW THE HEPBURN BILL LOOKS AFTER ONE YEAR OF VICISSITUDES. GNASHING OF TEETH. On tho whole the railroad sena tors are taking their medicine with poor grace. Last April it was "To hell with the public!" and the rail road lobby occupied the seat of honor at tho right hand of the sen ate committee on commerce. Then the storm broke. For a while the senators were anxious and silent and waited for the stom to blow over. But it didn't. Then they be came genuinely alarmed. Some of them aro whining—Elkins for one, Spooner for another. They say they are the very best friends the people have had and they feel deep ly grieved that they should be so misunderstood. Aldrich feels the lash, but he is taking it like a man. He is a pirate who believes political piracy to be an honored profession. By Gilson Gardner. Special Correspondence to The Press. WASHINGTON, D. C„ April 10.— The end of the long fight for rail way rate control is in sight. That a rate bill is to be put on the stat ute books is now conceded, oven by the Aldrich-Elkins crowd ln the sen ate. It Is to be a "real" bill, as di.* tinguished from a "gold brick." The most important thing about the law is, it will assert the prin ciple of government control over rates. "Tho rate! That Is the thing!' President Roosevelt once ex claimed. "The government must bo able to put Its finger on the rate!" ' It is nearly three years since that WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 190*. remark was made. The government will soon be able to put its finger on the rate. The Court Review. As to the much talked of wai ter of "court review" in the rate legislation. President Roosevelt has no objection to court review— provided that section is drawn and executed in GOOD FAITH. It Is all a question of a PROPER court re view. That's why he has just agreed to the review amendment which Lodge and other friends of the president have drawn. Except that the principle of gov ernment control of rates Is estab lished by tho pending Hepburn-Dol- II vcr-Tillman-Davey -Roosevelt bill, the measure a year ago would have been regarded as exceedingly con servative. It does not authorize tha government to go Into the general rate-fixing business; it does not give the government power to ad just differentials between rival commercial localities; it does not legislate any broad general princi ples of rate making. Tho thing* that the bill does not profess to do aro reserved for the "next round." Some Big Features. Many important provisions In tho pe&dl&g rate bill have been entirely lost to view In the great interest which has centered on the "court review" amendments. There is t'te publicity feature — one of tho most important — which provides for a system of Inspection of the books by government agents to discover whether rebates are being given. Another relates to the right of feed er roads to use the terminals of trunk lines to enter large commer cial centers. Still another is the new control to be provided for the private car lines, such as are main tained by Armour, Swift, Rocke feller and others. Besides thero are pending amendments' raising many questions.
