Louis Hunziker Jeweler and Optician. 726 Main St. Harvest wages in Oregon will be re duced fully 40 per cent this year, ac cording to D. E. Budd, an employment agent, who was asked in regard to the matter this morning, says a Portland paper. "The whole country Is full of Idle men, and Oregon hag her share," he says, "and when harvest time comes around In 1908, you will see men wil ling to work for $1.60 a day, where they refused J2.60 In 1907. The nhut ting down of the logging camps and railroad construction last fall was a bad blow on the laboring classes In the northwest, and although times are slowly getting better, there are still plenty of Idle men In the country. "Last year men could get work any where, and they would not stay more than a few days on one Job, because work was so easy to get at the next camp or farm. Young men who had been raised In the country had gone away from their homes In large num bers as a result of high wages offered al the big camps. These young men are all at home this year, and they will be ready to do the harvestln when the crops are ripe, without the assistance, of transient men. This condition will reduce the wages offer eii. ami the farmers will have it all their own way this season. "There are quite a number of Idle laborers In Portland now, but they re fuse what work offers. There Is little to do but clear land or work on farm, and this work does not suit them. They hang around the free lunch counters, bewailing the hard times and hope for a return of he prosperity of the past three years, which I fear Is somewhat remote. 'At the same time, good men can get all the work they want, and at living wages. They can get $40 an acre for 'grubbing' and If they are a mind to work steady, they can clear -1 r. t' $0 an acre. years, and I never saw a time when years, and I never sa wa time when good men could not get work. The hobo, who pretends to want work, however, Is likely to keep traveling from place to place, as employers can tell a good man from a habitual tramn. and are not likely to waste much time on the weary Willies, when thev can cct their Dick of men. Last year the men had It all their own way. and they abused the privilege shamefully. The shoe Is on the other foot now, and men must work In order to hold a Job." IrfiKircr Crushed by railing Tree, John Anderson, employed as bucket at a logging camp near Silver Lake, In Snohomish county, Wash., was almost Instantly killed by a fall- i lng tree one clay last week. His skull !was fractured, his body crushed and one leg broken. Anderson was a ! stranger and the whereabouts of his I relatives Is unknown.
