If Alfred the Great had done noth

The A. B. C. of the Plumb Plan
What Is the Plumb Plan?
It is a plan for the public ownership and the democracy in the control
of the railroads.
Who Has Endorsed it?
The two million organized railroad employes of America; and the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, alpuroving the p; iciple of government owner
ship, has instructed its executive committee to co-operate with the officers
of the railroad internationals in their effort. It also has been endorsed by
several farmers" organizations.
How Does It Propose to Buy the Roads?
By issuing gosvernment bonds with which to pay for the legitimate pri
vate interests in the railroad industry.
How Does It Propose to Operate the Roads?
- y a board of 15 dlirectors. five iiamed by the president, to represent
v the public; five elected by the operating officers; fi'e elected by the classi
Does This Mean Government Operation?
No; it is operation by a board in which those having the responsibility
have also the authority. It is superior to government operation because it
prevents control by anl ine'fficient bureaucracy; and is true democracy since
it gives the men engaged in the industry a voice ill its management.
What Becomes of the Surplus?
After operating expenses are paid, and fixed charges are met. including
i the interest on outstanding government securities, the surplus is divided
equally between tihe government and the men. The elimployes' portion is
- to he divided between the managerial and classified employes, the former
1 receiving double the rate receivedi by 1he latter class. This is not. a profit.
s since the corporation has no capital. What the men receive is a dividend
Is This a Bonus System?
No, it is giving those who increase production a share of the results
their increased effort has produced; and this share is theirs for as long
, as they are actually in the service, and is not forfcitable.
Why Do Operating Officials Receive the Larger Rate of
Because it serves as a greater stimulus to the group with the most re- y
sponsibility. And since the operating officials would lose dividends if fi
wages were increased it acts automatically to prevent collusion between C
labor directors and the operating directors to outvote the public's directors
in raising wages beyond a. reasonable level. The chief argument against a
the plan is that the public loses control of its own property, and that the i j
men in charge cannot be prevented fromn combining to pay themselves ex
tortionate wages. This method of sharing dividends sets up a natural bar- t
rier against collusion. 1>
Is This the Only Protection for the Public?
No, the rate-nmaking power remains with thle interstate commerce com- t
mission, and if wages were raised so high that rates had to be increased, h
the commission could refuse to change them, and shippers might appeal to p
the courts for redress. If the operation by the directors results in a de- i
ficit, congress can revoke their charter.
Does This Difference in Dividends Create Hostility Between v
Officials and Men?
No, because without harmoily between them neither group can earn
dividends. An official in working for his own dividend is working for the t
dividend of his subordinates, for one cannot gain unless all gain.
Does the Plan Assure a Decrease in Rates?
It provides that when the government's share of the surplus is 5 per
cent or mnore of the gross operating rex enue. rates shall be reduced accord
ingly to absorb the. amount the government receives. For instance: If
the entire surplus one year is $500,000.000, and this is 10 per cent of the
gross operating revenue, the governltment receives $250,000,000. And be
cause this is 5 per cent, rates are decre.ased 5 per cent. See what follows: 1
W\ithlout new econllomlies or" new business the profits the nlext year would
be only $250,000,000, and the .employes and the government would re
coive! only ihalf thIe amount of the year before. lIit decreased rates mean
more business; and, also, the reduction in dividend.s would stimulate the
employes to improve their operation ;by applying better methods. So the
t endency is to assllre constn tly decroeasing rates, to add to the volume of
business, and to give the most efficient service human ingenuity and de
votion can provide. I)ecreased rates lteant cheapler commodities; and so,
through the effectiveness of the railroads, the purchasing power of money
is increased, not only for the railroad tman, but for every wage earner and
What Does the Government Do With its Share of the Surplus?
It invests it, in inlprovements and e'ttensions, thus adding to the value
of the railroads without adding to the fixed charges. It retires the out
standing bonds, thus reducing the fixed charges. Ultimately the public
has its railroad service at cost.
Does the Government Pay for All Extensions.
No, the community benefited must pay if it can; if it is able to pay all,
the building of the extension is obligatory. If it only pays part, the gov
ornmllent pays lthe remasinder, but only malces the extension as it deems
wise. And where the general public :nd not a local community would be
benefited, the government pays the whole bill.
How Are Disputes Between Officials and Men Adjusted?
By boards, to which the operating officials elect five members and the
men, five members. In case of failure to reach an adjustment, the case is
appealed to the directors.
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 government corporation, 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 manner in which the company has lived
up 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
roads claim as their value.
Are There Other Savings?
Yes, the public can obtain the money to purchase the lines at 4 per
cent, whereas the public is now charged rates to guarantee the roads 6%
per cent on their money. The saving on the present capital account of
the railroads would be about $400,00)0,000, and on an honest valuation
would be nearly twice this sum. The Plumb plan provides for a sinking
fund and every year one of the fixed charges would be 1 per cent of the
outstanding indebtedness, to be used in retiring the bonds. The govern
nment also uses its profits in retiring bonds, so eventually, probably in 50
years, the people would own the roads debt-free. A further saving would
be in the operation of the roads as a unified system, which permits the
interchange of equipment, the end of wasteful competition, and greater
economy in buying supplies. Under this plan passenger rates of 1 1 cents
i 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. 'Glenu E. Plumb, general counsel for the
Organized Railway Employes of America.
What Can You Do to Help its Realization?
Join the Plum Plan league (lodge menbership,. $10 a year; individual
g membership, $1, payable to Treasurer, Plumb Plan League, 447-453 Mun
0 sey Bldg., Washington ), talk with your friends, and write your congress
0 man. It is the only association to secure public ownership that has the
eendorsement of the organized railroad employes.
Who Is Eligible to the League?
Every one who believes that democracy in industry is the solution of
i the railroad problem.

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
