K. Chandler. On hearing of the increase, a News reporter called Mr. Chandler by telephone and asked him for a verification of the report and he responded by sending the News a copy of the bulletin, the contents of which are as above quoted. Mr. Chandi* r ilco said ;hat he and his assistant. Mr. M O. Mathews, had been making an investigation of the cost of living of their employees since about the first of May and that the increase came about as a result of that investigation. They had expected to make the raise earlier, but were unable to do so on account of the extensive work connected with the investigation which they have been j conducting. Mr. Chandler also stated it was! the disposition of the company to, at all times, civ*-1 the employees all the traffic would stand in the way of wages, and the very best conditions that they could possibly provide. From Interviewing some of the men in the employ of the company it was learned that almo>t unanimous satisfaction prevails among the employees, and the unsolicited raise in wages at this time will no doubt help to make the feeling between the employer- and the employed all that could be desired. There are many men in the employ of The cement company who have been with it for years, and when it is considered that it is the biggest employer of labor in this nan of the country it is phenomenal that there has never been a labor difficulty at th*1 plant that even rh * a retied serious proportions. A few electricians who were in the * employ of the company presented them with a closed shop agreement a few' days ago, and it was thought thai there might be <ome friction because of the company’s refusal to sen it, but t seems that the electricians hav<* receded from their position and intend to go ahead under the present arrangement, since it has been .hown them thai the cement company’s plant is not extensively electrical and not in posit <>n to deal with the electrical workers union so far as til*- closed shop is concerned. During the pas* two and a bal month* at least the management of 1 he Oklahoma Portland company has actually schemed and planned, ii ap pears, to keep the plant going ami keep the men on the pay roll. Owing to car shortage the cement ami clinker storage bins have been filled to capacity and for That reason th*1 plant * ould ha'-* !*eeii shut down to good advantage to the company.

W hen it was first announced, over th re* months ago, that something would have to be done immediate!} to improve th*1 waterworks system os the city and increase the supply of water, the city commissioner# took the matter to the chamber of commerce and asked th‘ii i assistance and co-operation in solving the problem. \ Committee Was Api*oiiite<l.
