Spokane, Wash., May Malony, formerly business agent of Federal Union No. just chosen superintendent of cooperative con- struction in Spokane, has solved the problem of doing city work at reason- able prices and providing the highest' wages for laboring men by having the organization become a bidder for street grading and sewer building.
