LABOR COMMISSIONER IS
TRYING TO FIXvTHINGS
New York, April 24. After
having his offer of mediation ac
cepted by the railroad presidents,
Labor Commissibner Neill went
into conference with the officials
this afternoon in an effort to fix
a "basis of settlement.
It is expected that all of today
will be required for his delibera
tions with the employers, and to
morrow he will confer with rep
resentatives bf the .Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers
' The course then will probably
be arbitration to select a reason
able and acceptable compromise
between the positions of the em
ployers and employed.
A proposition for a larger com
mission to handle the negotia-
tions was frowned upon by Grand
Chief Stone of the engineers.
Stone declared, f inAiiscussing a
tentative plan for the appoint
ment of a committee by President
Taft, that in tlie present political
situation the president could not
afford to appoint such 'a body
Oite side would be bound to claim .
it had been unfairly dealt with,
and the president would bear the
brunt of criticism.
He also argued in favor of the
smaller commission as being less
unwieldly in handling the situa
tion, and also because Tudere
-Knapp and Commissioner Neil!
are experts m such matters.
Stone said that the railroads
were making a grandstand play
in an effort to ,have freight rates
raised, and that the engineers
wouldnat play into their hands.
He pointed out that the men who
control railroads also control
steel companies, and when they
pay out money far materials it, is
taking, fhe cash fromone pocket
and puttirig it in another. This
argument was meant to contro
vert the contention of the roads
that they could not afford to pay
.for new equipment under exist
ing shipping rates.
