Ordlnnrlly tho Chamber ot Com
rnorco pays no attention to tho malic
ious and untruthful stories that from
time to time are circulated rogarding
cortaln notions roputcd to havo been
taken by tho organization but tho ono
oxcoptiou is mado in tills lnstanco In
branding as absolutely untruthful tho
report that tho Chamber of Commorco
dictated what wugo should bo paid to
laborers on raving work or suggested
ur recommcnucu n cortaln wage, or
informed tho contractor that men
could bo secured for 30 conts an hour.
These charges are not only falsehoods
but aro absurd, and that thoy aro
falso will bo verified by Mr. Abel,
head of tho AboL Construction. Co., or
by Mr. Franklin, tho general Buporin

that tho higher tho wngo tho laboror

Thou why should a morchant favor n

of his business?
Tho only action tho Chamber of
Commorco has takon :n tho paving
work was to wait upon Mr. Franklin
When ho cahio horo In advanco of con
struction work and urged upon him
tho jufltlco und fairness of employing
North Platto rosldonts in preference
to non-residonts of "floaters." Tills
Mr. Franklin agreed to do, and at his
suggestion, and in order that ho . or
his foromen might know who wore or
who woro not actual residents, appli
cants for work woro requested to call
at tho Chamber of Commorco office,
givo thor names nnd street address and
rocoivo a card upon which was writ
ten their name, whether slnglo or
married and that thoy'.doslred work,
About ninety of theso cards woro is
sued, and Mr. Leo, tlio general foro

Chambor ot Commorco promptly -with

since been consistent in its position.
It was Instrumental last winter in or
ganizing tho Associated Charities
which took caro of about ninety fam
ilies of unemployed mon and others
that noedod help; urged that paving
work bo startod ns oarly as posslblo
In ordor to holp out tho unemployed
mon and glvo work to teamsters. It
devoted much timo last fall and dur
ing tho winter to finding employmont
for mon out of work and was ably
asslstod by Frank DlBtol nt tho Silver

In fact, tho Chambor of Commorco
courts an Investigation of any and
