Street Car Men Take 8Issue VWith
Good Government Club
The following statement concern
ing the raise in street car fares ask
ed for by the Butte Electric Railway
company is published at the request
of the Street Car Men's union:
"We look with surprise on the
misguided efforts of the Good Gov
ernment club to interfere with the
petition of the Street Railway com
pany for an increase of one-fourth
of one cent in fare.
"Assuming the published state
ments of the comllpalny are correct,
they would furnish an excellent op
portulnity for the worthy enldeavors
of the Good Government club.
"In fact, not having seen or heard
anything of the club advocating the
soviet, we do not ascribe any desire
on their part to eliminate the pri
vate corploraltion as an integral lelnt
her of the present ilndustrial and
economlic olrdler. Therefore, assulm
ing out deductions of its attitude in
this regardt to be correct, they can
inot lie conlsistent if they expect tile
street railway to operate at a loss.
This phase concerns its, as street car
inen, as it is pertinent to tile main
tenaince of our wages.
"The financial conditions of the
comlpainy do not concern uis, provided
tie comlpensation for ouri services
operating the cars is assured.
"Examline facts of other street
railways. We find Seattle's lines
municipally owned and absolved of
tile taxation, ipaved streets, lighting,
bridges and license, all of which the
Butte colnlmpainy have to pay, and tile
ipeople there ultimately pay with
Itaxes, iand the difference ill fare at
present is just one cent.
"liBoston's system, which is ill part
privately owned, charges an eight
"'The motives of the Good Govern
menllt ('club) ill this matter are not
qullestionled, biut we conteindl that the
clubl has taken its position without
analyzing the entire proposition, es
tpecially as it applies to the workers
who operate the street cars.
"The club has a right, of course,
to oppose a slight raise in street car
fares, but we ask them in all fair
noss whether or not 20,0010 people
are not better able to stand this raise
thanll tie street car l1men would be
able to stanlldl a, cit in wages.
"On the 3rd of October last, the
war labor board grlanted our lenlnm
erls anll incrlease ill wages lasting unl
lil May 1. Since this'date the man
atger' of the company has withdrawn
from this award, but lie is willing to
continue the present scale of wages
given its by the war labor bioard, pro

anll increase of one-fourth of one

perlllit ouil' wages to be re
