More Money in Sight for Central Section Men

Announcement Made Public That Company Has Voluntarily Granted Ten Per Cent Raise.

Illinois Central section men are rejoicing in the news that the company voluntarily had advanced the wages of its section men 10 per cent on the entire system, the advance to date from May 1. The raise will effect (sic) all men working on sections from foremtn (sic) to the cheapest laborer. The men had not asked for a raise and that makes the announcement all the more pleasing.
