New York, March 16. Miss The
resa Nicholson, 50, of Little Neck,
L. L, sister of John J. Nicholson of
Chicago, leaped from the fifth floor J
MAY CALL STRIKE ON."Q" T
Pinal action before calling, a strike $
vote among the 7,000 members of a
the brotherhoods of railroad em
ployes working on the Burlingtoa ,2
system will be taken today. Mem-a
bers of various grievance committees ft
were told to come to Chicago for a B
conference,, They will probably re- i&
turn with ballots which will give v- to
efy man a chance to declare for or j
against a strike. 3j
The trainmen are quarreling with
the railroad because the company in- j
sists that if a freight run is completed
during the day and the employes are
sent out again on a passenger run $
they have made only one run and are B
paid accordingly. 0j
The employes demand payment on j0
the basis of 100 miles or less or 10
hours or less. ' ,j
Another point upon which the rail-ot
road men and employers could notJB
agree was the discharge of a switch- 09
man at Rockford, HI., which was con
trary to the agreement with the rail- ni
roads, the trainmen say. 0
FOR LOWER TAXI RATE Z
A fight will be put up for a 30 cent -a
taxi fare, according to Montague tia
Perry Comm'r of Public Service. He do
turned down the suggested compro-og
mise of 40 cents offered by Aid. Kjel- fH
lander on the ground that it was too js
high and barred "common folks" JW
from the use of the taxi. 'ui
In answer to the repeated claims
that a 30 cent fare would put many ,u
taxi companies out of business, Ferry
replied that a 30 cent fare is now in XQ
operation in New York and the taxi9V
men are thriving under it ,
"A 30 cent rate will bring the taxis lu
to the point where everyone can use Btl
them and end the restriction which jj
gives the taxis over to the wealthiest
class of citizens," said Ferry.
