THE WASHINGTON TDIES, FltlDAY, OCTOBER ., 1912.
Trainmen Satisfied With 1 1
Per Cent Increase Grant
' ed By Mediators.
"Satisfied, If not quite contented," Is
the central attltuAo o( the labor repre
sentative aa expressed by Vul 'Hs
Patrick, vice president of the Hrolher
hood of Railway Trainmen, In discuss
ing the' settlement of the controversy
between, the employes and managers. of
the floatlieastorn railroads, by which a
raise of a little less than 11 per cent
was granted the trainmen.
This agreement, brought, about
through the efforts of Chief Justice Mar
gin A. Knapp, of the Commerce Court,
and Charles P. Nclll, United1 States Com
missioner of , Labor, acting as mediators,
ends a controversy that has been waged
, stubbornly for almost six months. About
12,000 trainmen and practically, every
railroad In the Southeastern section
, were Involved, and a probable, strike of
the trainmen has been averted' by tho
'agreement, which was signed at 3:13
o'clock yesterday afternoon.
The percentage of Increase In the
wages Is different for the different
classes of employes.
According to A. B. Oarrettson, presi
dent of the International I Order of Rail
way Conductors, the Increase averages
about 10 2-3 per cent and la effective Oc
tober 1, 1912. It Is understood the train
men asked for Increases ranging from
15 to 22 per cent, and the railroads at
first refused to grant any raise. This
was the state of affairs when the two
parties to the controversy agreed about
three weeks ago, to attempt a settle
ment of the dispute by mediation under
the Krdman act of 1855, and named
Justtoe Knapp and Commissioner Nelll
For the last several days It has
seemed as If the mediation process
would fall, and It Is said that when jus
tice Knapp and Commissioner Nelll pre.
sented a wage scale to the managers
and employes Wednesday, It was with
the understanding that If these terms
