Shovellers Have A Grievance.

There is a difference between the management of the M.T. company and the shovellers in employment of the same. The men have asked to be allowed $1.25 a thousand bushels instead of ninety-seven cents, which at present is all they earn. A shoveller stated this morning that recently the men had worked for thirty-six hours and their earnings were only three dollars. They are allowed one dollar a thousand bushels, but have to pay in three cents a thousand bushels to the boss shoveller, who makes $40 to $10 earned by the men. The matter is under consideration by the company.
