PHONE 1865 Want Fulfilment of Promises-Street Car Drivers Get a Small Increase Willj the granting of a twenly (-ent ft day increase to the miners of District No. T!>, nuuiiciiial employees are looking for an increase. When it was not, forthconiing in the c.^se of tlio men of the street tle)iarlment thitv-raorning Ihey walked out on their sgeond strike iluring the past six months. The men called on (.'ommi.ssioner Grni'e in u body shortly after ten outlook, demanding a raise. It Is understood he has promised an ndju.stnient of the trou-lilo. The men remained oft work all day. Motormen Get Increase The men of tjio .?trcfet railway, do-jjurlmont have also b6en after'a Wage increase recently and at a ppeeial meeting of tho city council yesterday afternoon this was granted to the ex lent of two cents an hour. The men liad askod for an increase to place thorn on tho .same footing as the Calgary motor conductors � hut- the city could not see its way clear to grant a raise which would amount to about ton conis an hour. In connection with llio increaso granted Uie t'ollowltig resolution was pas.scd: .Whereas the Street flallwuy employees liuve made a request for an increase of wages, on account of tho cost of living having greatly increased .since tho last wage adva,]ico, and Wlieruas tho City Council is cognizant of llio fact that the cost of living has boen largely increased and that consideration must be given the employ(?es ou this account, on as liberal a .scale as the ta.xpayers ability to meet it will permit, and Whereas there is an annual deficit ot about $ao,000.00 in the operation of tho Street Hallway, which must be paid, through tiixation, by the taxpayer.^ who are already taxed to the limit, and Whereas the. condition of our Street Kailway is such that an increased fare cannot be imposed to -meet any in-oroaso of wages, and there is no poss-ibl(' v/ay of meeting an increase of wages except by increasing the taxes, it necessarily follows that whatever increase is given must be with duo con.s id oration to tho taxpayers, and Whereas tiie basis of increase asked tor is the wag'os paid in Calgary where the condilions are very differ-out in-as-mucU as the work is more arduous, tho inttomo on the Street .Uailway produces a profit, the wages paid in Calgary are in excess of any other Street llailway in the country, and iu many otnei' ways is different from tho conditions in Ijethbridge, and Whereas the .$110,000 deficit referred lo is the overhead charges cost indicating that tho Street Railway only pays slightly more than operating expenses, it iollows that if this deficit is to be increased by increasing wages, it will be ospecially in tho interest of the tax payers to discontinue the operation of tho Street Kailway. Therefore be it resolved that an in-cretiso of two cents per hour be granted all employees in fhe .Street Railway and Power House Departments, paid by the hour, other terms aud conditions remaii)inK the same, Soffie of the BlriSet workers inter-vio'wed the Herald this morning and voiced their protest of tlie difference in tho scale of wages. They state that old Mr. L.ongley, who has been one ot the best street employees is only getting cents an lion;- while some Aus-trians working on w.xterworks are getting ?.S cents an hour. Crossings men aro getting .35 centa an liouj' and claim they should be getting as much as the Austrians. MARCH TO ViCTORV Courage ia a Jnatter of tho blood.
