Head of Brotherhood Notifies
Railroads That Strike Is
FIREMEN ARE INVOLVED
Companies Arc "Standing Pat"
and the Situation Is Held
to Be Grave.
CHICAGO, March. 13. W. S. Carter,
president of the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Firemen and ICnginomcn, notified
the railroads today that if the contro
versy -with the firemen is not submit
ted to arbitration, a strike is inevitable.
Twenty-five thousand firemen on rail
roads west of Chicago are involved.
Mr. Carter's letter of notification was
indorsed by the Brothorhood's commit
tee, which represents the firemen on
about forty-seven railroads, -west, north
west and southwest of Chicago. The
letter was sent to W. C. Nixon, general
manager of the Si. Louis & San Fran
cisco railroad, and chairman o tho
railroad general managers' committee,
Lettor Is Explicit.
'" Vonr letter of this date (March 13).
wherein yon state that the managers'"
committee declines 'further to consider
matters in ,cmitrovers3' and in reply our
committee instructs me to say: If
there is to be a great railway strike,
responsibility inubt aud will rest ou tho
managers' committee. That There may
he no misunderstanding concerning this
responsibility, our conimitteo hereby
proposes tho submission of all mat tors
in dispute- to an adjustment by arbitra
tion. JiTho public has been informed,
through the press, that matters in con
troversy cannot be arbitrated, because
they involye the authority of railway
oih'eials and the discipline of employees.
This statement our committee emphat
'"The officials of manv railways rep
resented by tho managers' commitleo
do not hesitate to confess the grofs in
justice perpetrated under present prac
tices. "Our committee directs mo to re
quest the managers' committee through

Points of Difference.
The railroads previously announced
their willingness to arbitrate the in
creased -wage demand, which the fire
men say would amount to about '12H
per cent.- Two other demands involved",
the managers say. concern discipline and
are not open (o arbitration These points
have to do with the promotion of fire

men, they are still under the jurisdic
tion of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Firemen aud Enginemcn.
"Docs your letter mean that if a sat
isfactory rcplv is not received a strike
will be called?" Mr. Carter was asked.
''It looks prcttv grave." he said.
'Wo are nearer a disagreement than
we have ever been during the whole six
i weeks of conference. We do not waul
a strike. We want the public to under
stand that. As to our aulhoritv to

Jt wa- learned that the uiauagers had
agreed to "stand pat" and. while re

another conference tomorrow.

PUBLIC LANDS 101
Problem to Harmonize Laws
Relating to Conservation
BALL I NG ER- PINCH 0T CASE
IS TEACHING LESSON
Evidence Shows the Various De
partments of Service Not
WASHINGTON, March 13. Senators
from public land states, who were ap
pointed a special committee to prepare
conservation .bills that would harmonize
the laws, arc finding their task far from
A number of bills arc before the com
mittee, but it is giving its attention
principally to the measure known as the
classification bill. The committee is
composed of Senators Sinoot of Utah.
Clark P Wyoming and "Dixou of Mon
tana, Republicans, and ITughes of Jolo
rado stud Chamberlain of Oregou, Dem
ocrats. A majority of them are favorable to
the .general theory of conservation. Sen
ators Clark and Hughes, however, are
antagonistic to the proposed change of
the public land policy.
The testimony before the Balliuger
Pinchot committee has disclosed that
the general land ofiice. the forest serv
ice, the reclamation service and the geo
logical survey arc uot operating in sym
pathy and iliis makes -work or' the com
mittee more difficult. It is their opinion
that if the classification and the with
drawnl'bill can be passed, the way will
be eas3' for other menstrfes, which look
to the disposal of the lands uuder the
Lack of Agreement.
The principal obstacles in the way to
an agreement on the classification bill
j are found in the provisions relatiutr to
oil lands and water power sites. This
bill authorizes the secretary of the in
terior to classify all the public lauds.
Many senators contend it would bo
impossible to classify oil lauds in ad
vance and senators who hold this view
are making trouble for the committee.
The committee itself appreciates this
difficulty, and there is a tendency to
wards a provision fb" the leasiug rather
than the sale of lands supposed to cover
oil deposits. If the bill should be
framed with this idea any person could
lease a tract of land and put down his
I well and if successful iu liDdiug nil
could then acquiro the laud uuder the
The subject of water power sites has
been the basis of many conferences,
with tho executive branch of the gov
ernment as well. A tho slates coutrol
the streams, it is recognized as difficult
for the government to continue its su
pervision of the lauds immediately bor
dering tiio streams, as power sites neces
sarily must. Ou this account the sen
ate seems favorably disposed toward
the grant of the power sites to the sev
eral states and it is believed that the
administration may be induced to con
sent to this disposition of them if suf
ficient resfrictions are provided.
The withdrawal bill is giving the com
mittee almost as much concern as the
classification bill, notwithstanding it is
now on the senate calendar. Favorable
action on that measure is rcallv neces
sary before the classification law could
be carried into ell'ect. Its language is
so broad that it authorizes the president
lo withdraw practically all the public,
land at his discretion. The measure
specifies the purpose for which tho lands
may be reserved as " forest rv, water
power sites, irrigation, classification of
lands or olher public purposes." There
will .bo no effort to pass this bill until
the terms of tho classification bill are
agreed to and the two Sills probablv
will be considered consecutively.
