The A. B. C. of the Plumb Plan
What Is the Plumb Plan?
It is a pIlan for thte public ownership and the deirocraiy in the control
of the railroads.
Who Has Endorsed it?
The two iillion organized railroad employes of America; and the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, ol;'roving the plil'iple of government owiner
ship, has inlIstru(ted its executitvie ('Olllltnitee to co-operalte withl the officers
of the railroad internationals in their elffort. It aso has been endorsed by
s t;everal farmnrs' orgalnizlations.
How Does It Propose to Buy the Roads?
By issuing government bonds with which to pay for the legitimate pri
vate interests in the railroad industry.
How Does It Propose to Operate the Roads?
Bly a board of 15 dircetors. five named by the president, to represent
the public; five elcted by the operallitg officers; fi\e elected by the classi
Does This Mean Government Operation?
No; it is operation by a board in which those having the reslonsibil it
have also tile a llltorty. It is supelrior to governm'ent operation because it
prevents coltlrol bty anll inefficient Irllreallcracy: and is trle democracy since
it gives the uieti engatged in the inldustry a voice ill its llanagemlent.
A What Becomes of the Surplus?
After operating expenses are paid, and fixed clharges are met, including
the interest O on otstanding governllent securities, the surplus is divided
equltlly between the governmellnt and thlie ien. 'Tiw employes' portion is
to be divided between the illaiagerial and classified n1iplloyes, the forlmer
roeti\iing doulie trite rate received by the latter cla:as. This is lnot a profit
sillce the corporation has ino capil;i. \\'hat the nitnI receive is a dividend
Is This a Bonus System?
No, it is giving those who increase production a share of the resulIts
their increased effort has produced; and this share is theirs for as long
as they are actually inll the service, and .is not forfeitable.
Why Do Operating Officials Receive the Larger Rate of
Because it serves as a greater stimulus to the group with the most re
sponsibility. And since the operating officials would lose dividends if
wages were increased it acts automatically to prevent collusion between
labor directors and the operating directors to outvote tle the public's directors
in raising wages beyond a reasonable level. The chief argument against
the plan is that the public loses control of its own property, and that the
nlell in clltarge cannolllt Ibe prevented fromn colnbinillg to pay Ihemselves ex
tortionate wages. This method of sharing dividends sets up a natural bar
rier against collusion.
Is This the Only Protection for the Public?
No. the rate-mnakitg power remains with the interstate commerce com
mission, and if wages were raised so high that rates hand to be increased,
the commission could refuse to change theml, and shippers might appeal to
the courts for redress. If the operation by the directors results in a de
ficit, congress can revoke their charter.
Does This Difference in Dividends Create Hostility Between
Officials and Men?
No, because withoutt hlarlmony between them neither grotlp can earn
dividends. An official in working for his own dividend is working for the
dividend of his subordinates, for ono cannllOt gainl unless all gain.
Does the Plan Assure a Decrease in Rates?
It provides that when thile governll'n1 t's sliare of thie surplus is 5 per
celnt or ltore of thile gross oIperating rev'enue, rates shall be reduced alccord
illgly to absorb th( anlounllt the government receives. For insta.nce: If
the entire surpluls one yoear is $500,0t01,00(1, and this is 10 per cent of the
gross olperating revenuel, the govornmllaent receives $250,000.00 . And lbe
cause this is 5 iper cen't. rates are decre:ased 5 1per cent. See what follows:
Without new 1conomies or' 111ew businaess the profits the next year would
be only $250,000.i010, and the employes and the governlment would re
c ive onlly half the amollntl of the year .before. But decreased rates mlleat
more business; and, also, theli reducttiol in, dividends would stimulate the
ei ployes to intl)rove their operation byi applying hoetter methods. So the
tend1nce11y is to iassure ctonstantly dccresing rates, to add to the volume of
bulsintess, illd (to give tho lmlost 'ff'icielit service hllullan ingenuity and de
votion a provide. l)ocreased rates I.lean c'heaper colImmIdities; and so,
through lthe efitectieneIss of the railroads, the purchasing power of oIImoney
is illncreased. not only for the railroad lIlan, but for every wage earner and
iWihat Does the Government Do With its Share of the Surplus?
It invests it ill ipllllro'veiellts and e:xteolnsions, thllus adding to the value
'of the Irailroads withllout addling to the fixed clharges. It retires the out
standing bonds, thus reducing the fixed cllharges. Ultimately the public
has its railroad service lit cost.
Does the Government Pay for All Extensions.
No. tilhe comninity benefited must Uay if it can; if it is alble to pay all,
the building of the extension is obligatory. If it. only pays part, the gov
crnmellnt pay:l the reeil'Orlitl, iblt ontly nmaltes the extension as it deelms
. 'ice. And twherl' Ilie g.llierall llbliuc and not a local community would be
benefitted, the governmtent 1pays the whole bill.
How Are Disputes Between Officials and Men Adjusted?
ily boards, to which the opelraling officials elect five nmembers and the
Snen, fi've tietbers. In case of failure to reach all adjustment, the case is
IappealeId to the dilrectorlls.
Who Determines the Rate of Wages?
The board of directors.
Who Supervises the Purchase of the Roads?
A purchasing board, composed of the interstate commerce commission
and three directors of the new goverltnmient corpIoration, one director from
Who Decides the Value of the Private Interest in the Railroads?
The courts. It is a judicial question, and is to be answered only after
an examination of the charters of the existing companies, the laws under
which they were created, and the manulr in which the company has lived
iup to its charter and these laws.
Will the Public Have to Pay for Watered Stock?
No. The public will probably pay less than two-thirds of what the rail
Sroatls claimIt as their value.
Are There Other Savings?
Yes. the polublic can obtain the monlley to purchlase the lines at 4 per
cenlt, whereas the plublic is now charged rates to guarantee the roads 6%
per cent on their money. The saving on the present capital account of
jthe raihoads would be about $400,000,000, and on an honest valuation
.wiould be nearly twice this sumlll. The Plumb plan provides for a sinking
fund allnda every yiear one of the fixed charges would be 1 per cent of the
outstanding indebtedness, to be used in retiring the bonds. The govern
iment also uses its profits in retiring bIonds, so eventually, probably in 50
years, thie peolple would ownl the roads debt-free. A further saving would
be in the operation of the roalds as a unified system, whlich permits the
Interchange of eqluipment, tlhe enld of wasteful comnpetition, and greater
econoImy in buying supplies. Under thlis plan passenger rates of 1%/ cents
a mile, and a reduction of frieght rates by 40 per cent appear reasonable.
Why Is It Called the Plumb Plan?
Because it was conceived by tGlenn E. Plumb, general counsel for the
Organized Railway Employes of America.
S What Can You Do to Help its Realization?
Join the Plum Plan league (lodtge nmembership, $10 a year; individual
imembership. $1. payable to Trreasurer, Plumb Plan League, 447-453 Mun
sey BIldg., Washington), talk witht your friends, and write your congress
mlan. It is the onIly association to secure lpublic ownership that has the
endorsemnent of the organized Iraiload emolloyes.
SWho Is Eligible to the League?
Every one who believes that democracy in industry is the solution of
the railroad Orobletlm.

to carry on the defense of the Bulletin staff in the courts. Two
members cf the staff have been fined a total of $9,500, on
charges of sedition, charges which were the direct result of
the effort of the corrupt political machine in Montana to put
a free press out of business. The cases have been appealed
to the State Supreme Court. It requires money to fight
these cases through the various courts; it takes money for
traveling expenses, etc., for transcripts of evidence and ste
nographers' hire. None of the money goes to pay lawyers'
fees, the lawyers engaged in the cases not only having donat
ed their services, but actually paying their own expenses.
The fines imposed and the expenses of fighting the cases
through the courts, are the result of the Bulletin Staff keep
