The Railroad Trainmen's An
The Origin and History of the
What It Has Accomplished for Train
The Parade Yesterday Afternoon—Who
the Delegates Are—The Opening of
the Convention at the Pavilion.
Fine looking, stalwart, intelligent,
representative American workers and
American men; such was the verdict
passed by the Los Angeles public on the
members of the Brotherhood of Rail
way Trainmen, who paraded yesterday
afternoon and whose annual convention
was opened last evening. The city was
crowded with people yesterday auxious
to do honor to those brave and able
men. Many oi the delegates are accom
panied by their families and the ladies,
of course, are loud in their praises of
the city and Southern California gener
The local lodge, Paradise by name.and
84 in number, has made all possible
preparations for caring for the visitors,
owing to the earnest efforts
of the committee on entertain
ment, composed of C. B. Patterson,
chairman; Hugh Byrne, W. H. Clum,
George Trepanier, A. D. Renfro, R. L.
Barton, T. S. Lewis and H. D. Drake.
The officers of this lodge are: Master,
A. D. Renfro; vice-master, E. T. Tavlor;
past master, H. Byrne; chaplain, j. H.

The Brotherhood of Railroad Train
men.forinerly the brotherhood of railroad
brakemen, was organized at Oneonta, N.
V., in the autumn of 1883 by a few
freight brakemen who assembled in a
caboose and decided to establish a union
for mutual protection. They were but a
mere handful of men, pledging each
other financial assistance in time of
need; and it is by no means probable
that they foresaw the splendid structure
that was destined to rise above the
humble foundation then laid. At that
time there was in existence the brother
hood of locomotive engineers, the
brotherhood of locomotive firemen, and
the order of railway conductors ; but no
effort worthy of mention had been made
to organize the brakemen or the switch
That the time for such an order had
come, and that the country was ready
for it is evident from the fact that the
infant organization quickly gained a
foothold in the neighboring cities, and
new lodges were formed with wonderful
rapidity. In a single year the order had
grown to a membership of eight hun
dred members, representing 37 lodges.
Not long after the first annual conven
tion, which met in Oneonta, the young
and rapidly growing brotherhood met
with a disaster that suddenly checked its
progress and for a time threatened its
existence. It was discovered that Grand
Treasurer Osterhout was an embezzeler;
through his dishonesty the organization
was brought to the verge of ruin. The
rumor of bankruptcy spread and there
was imminent danger that the members
would flatly refuse to pay another
assessment, and that the movement
would come to an inglorious end.
The board of trustees immediately as
sembled and decided to place Ed. F.
O'Shea in charge of affairs. Mr. O'Shea
was at the time a clerk for the de
faulting treasurer and had been instru
mental in exposing the theft. He
assumed the; duties of grand
secretary and treasurer tempor
arily, and at the next conven
tion was elected to those offices.
He set himself vigorously to work to re
pair the shattered fortunes of the broth
erhood. Organizers were put on the
road, confidence was restored and the
good work once more moved forward.
For five years he held the double office
of treasurer, and also editor and mana
ger of the Journal, and then resigned
his position at the last convention, held
in St. Paul, to become traffic agent for
the Southern Pacific at Denver. During
those five years the order grew from a
feeble band of a few hundred to a power
ful army of twenty thousand, distributed
over the United States and Canada.
At the last conventionmuchbeneficial
legislation was enacted. The name was
changed to the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen, and its membership is com
posed of conductors, brakemen, switch
men, baggagemen and yardmasters. A
sum of $1000 is paid to each member who
is totally disabled, or to his heirs in
the event of his death. The power of
the order may be judged from the fact
that it pays out annually to the widows
and orphans nearly $300,000.
The official organ owned and published
by the brotherhood at Galesburg, 111.,
has a circulation of some 22,000 copies,
and is steadily extending the territory it
covers. The past year has been a very
successful one for the order. S. E. Wilk
inson, who has been grand master for
the past five years, has this year con
ducted negotiations with a number of
railroad companies which resulted in
settlements that have raised wages in
many different parts of the nation ag
gregating many thousands of dollars and
bringing better conditions to the train
men. The present convention in this
city will continue a week or ten days and
will probably be noted for its progressive
At 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
sidewalks were crowded with people
anxious to take a look at the visitors.
The merchants along Main and Spring
streets, and Broadway, had in many
instances decorated their stores, and the

city* had a gala like appearance. At
about 3 o'clock the procession com
menced to move from the corner of
Main and Sotello streets. Four mounted
officers dressed in their best suits of
clothes led the way. These were fol
lowed by the Police Rifle corps, com
manded by Captain Roberts. This was
a fine feature, the seventeen men show
ing the effect of good schooling.
Next came the grand officers in car
riages, accompanied by their families

There were thirty carriages in line
next, filled with delegates.
After the carriages came more dele
gates on foot, to the number, probably,
of 200. These were the visitors. As they
passed the Herald office they did this
paper the honor of giving three cheers,
Headed by the city band,next marched
the Typographical Union 174, made up
of the" most intelligent, self respecting,
able workmen in the city. There were
ninety-five of these gentlemen who
marched, besides officers and their ladies
in carriages. The parade continued to
the pavilion, where the body disbanded
and returned to their hotels and homes
to prepare for the evening's festivities.

At the Pavilion.
The stage of the Academy of Music
was tastefully decorated with chrysan
themums, palmettos and a variety of
flowers last night. The auditorium was
crowded as it has never been since the
days when the American opera company
appeared in the pavilion. The hall was
decorated with bunting and flags. Many
ladies were present, and great enthusi
asm was the order of the evening. On the
stage were many of the invited citizens
of this city, as well as the officers of the
organization. The convention was
opened with an eloquent prayer by the
Rev. R. S. Cantine, who asked God's
blessing upon the Brotherhood of Train
Mayor Henry T. Hazard then ex
tended on behalf of the city of Los An
geles a cordial welcome to the order of
trainmen. He believed that it repre
sented the great principles of republican
government. The orator referred to the
arrival of our forefathers to this soil,
what they did to establish the republi
can form of government which has
challenged the admiration of the entire
civilized world. The speaker believed
that America had been more productive
in science, art and industry than all the
other nations combined. This he as
cribed to the free school system of our
country. He then introduced the grand
master of the order of the Brotherhood
of Trainmen, S. E. Wilkinson, to the
audience. The gentleman was received
with prolonged applause.
Mr. AA'ilkinson said that he was glad
to be in the land of sunshine and beau
tiful women (applause). He said the
organization was doing great and good
work for the betterment of railroad em
ployees. Formerly the order contained
pnly brakemen, but it had been ex
tended because a number of men who
had been promoted were still in the or
der. He referred proudly to the great
work that it had done in the name of
charity. The life of a railroad man was
a very hazardous one. AVhen a loss of
life occurred—that of an employee—it is
said: "Only another brakeman killed."
He referred to the hopes and aspirations
of the men of the order, and hopefully
expected that many of the repre
sentatives would in the future
fill much more responsible positions
than those of brakemen. He al
luded with pride to the fact that
no strike had ever yet been ordered by
the brotherhood. The convention had'
met tonight to better the condition of :
this country and that of the members of. j
the brotherhood. He advocated voting
for the men who would protect them and
their families, and who would see that
not so many graves should be filled with
the bodies of railroad men who died
while attending to their duty.
One of the great objects of railroad
men's conventions was to come closer
together. He denied that when the en
gineers, firemen, switchmen, brakemen
and conductors federated they would
walk into the general manager's office
and tell him: "You may own the road
but we are going to run it." The speaker
showed how many valuable lives had
been lost since many years on the field
of railroads. He thanked God that since
three years ago the organization had
brought up the standard-of pay, to the
standard which the hardships of
the work deserved. He did not believe
that the dangers to the organization
came from capital but from the internal
workings of the order itself. The speaker
advocated industry and sobriety, and in
conclusion hoped that Los Angeles
would always remember the organiz
ation kindly and extend to it the right
hand of good fellowship.
Mayor Hazard announced that Judge
James G. Maguire had kindly consented
to speak in the stead of Lieutenant Gov
ernor S. M. AVhite, who was absent in
the north. The eloquent speaker said
that labor produces the wealth of the
world, and the share which went to the
producer was small—almost insignifi
cant. He eulogized Mr. AVright, the
commissioner of labor statistics, who
had said that one man today could pro
duce as much with labor-saving appli
ances as- eleven men could have done
ten years ago. Judge vlaguire said that
he understood the organization had met
to legislate upon the relations of labor
to capital, and he urged it to treat the
capitalist as a wrong and misguided
brother with whom it was proper to
reason about the situation. He said in
conclusion that goodness was alone im
mortal, evil was not made to last.
H. Z. Osborne next addressed the
convention. He said the mayor in
extending to it the welcome of the city,
had forgotten to refer to our climate—
the glorious climate of California. If it
was either too hot or too dry, too cold
or too wet, the speaker said, all he
could say was that it was very unusual.
The speaker believed in trade union or
ganizations and everything which would
enable the laboring man to improve his
condition, that of his family and of his
_W. C. Owen spoke shortly in lauda
tion of the order and the "dangers at
tending the life oi a trainman. He ad
vocated the soledarity of labor.
Mr. Owen was followed by H. T. Wil
shire, and being the last speaker he said
he would make his speech exceedingly
brief. The gist of his address was that
the owners of railroads are not the ab
solute owners of them, but hold them
in trust for the people. Mr. Wilshire is
a nationalist, and managed to express
a few of his ideas on the subject.
At the conclusion of this orator's
speech Mr. L. W. Rogers was called by
the audience, and thanked the city of
Los Angeles, in the name of the organ
ization, for the hearty reception accorded
its delegates. He spoke of the dangers
and perils of the trainmen, and said that
General Sherman had once said that if
he had to recruit an army he would
choose it entirely among railroad men.
He imoked the sympathy of America's
citizens for an improvement of the brake
men's condition, and for a reduction of
his hours of work. Mr. Rogers spoke
very sensibly and moderately, and was
listened to with the greatest attention.
P. H. Morrisey, first vice grand master,
having been called upon for a few re
marks, also addressed the audience.
Upon the conclusion of his remarks, Rev.
Dr. Cantine asked a benediction and the
large gathering withdrew. The H. J.
O'Blea orchestra furnished the musical
selections between speeches.
A familiar figure at the convention, to
railroaders, was Joseph Bellaire, the one
fingered firemen. By an unfortunate ac
cident he lost his left hand except the
thumb. To his left wrist he has now
attached a hook with which he can
grapple anything,as Captain Cuttle with
the glittering eye. On the right wrist
is fastened a piece of steel which can be
utilized as a knife or a bistouri.
CONSTABLE CRAIN'S TRIAL COSTS
FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS.
He Is Found Guilty of False Imprison
ment and Fined Seventy-Five Dollars.
Some of the Features of this Peculiar
M. H. Cram, the constable from Lan
caster, whom a jury found guilty on Sat
urday in department six, with an alac
rity seldom displayed by juries in this
county, was brought up for sentence
before Judge Shaw yesterday morning.
Cram had been convicted of picking up
two traveling Mexican sheep-shearers
whose only crime was that they had not
enough money to pay their railroad fare,
and were too honest to steal a
ride. This model constable, for
the sake of the mileage and fees he
would obtain, made these two unfortu
nate fellows his prisoners, dragged them
before a justice of the peace on a charge
of vagrancy, and they were promptly
convicted. " Mr. Cram brought them to
the county jail, and then he had earned
his money. Such methods are not
countenanced in free America, and
Cram was in his turn arrested. After
hearing all of the testimony and the
arguments, the jury, which was abso
lutely indignant, found Cram guilty in
less than ten minutes, and there was no
recommendation of mercy attached to
the verdict. Judge Shaw "fined him $75.
A reporter of the Herald called upon
the board of supervisors and inquired of
Chairman Perry how much the Cram
trial had cost the county. The answer
was: "All of $4000." In the auditor's
office warrants have been issued
at the bidding of Judge Shaw for
$358. 30, up to date and quite a contin
gent to be heard of as yet. This money
has been paid to witnesses who had
been subpeenead by the defense to tes
tify to the immaculate Cram's character
and who made affidavit that they were
too poor to pay their own expenses.
Among these was Mr. Livesay, the jus
tice of the peace who convicted the
men. His plea for traveling expenses
was that he had only earned $11 in ten
months as a county dogberry, and could
not bear the expense of coming here to
testify in favor of his constable.
The punishment of Cram's crime is
either a fine'not exceeding $5000 or im
prisonment not exceeding one year. He
was fined $75. Some of the witnesses
who played the indigent act afterwards
went before Judge Shaw and wanted to
qualify as bondsmen in another case.
