I orning, was postponed gnl
afternoon, owing to the failure of
T. C. Cashen, head of the Switch
men's union, to arrive In the city.
It was said that L. E. Sheppard.
president of the Order of Railway

the meeting, but that the "real war
council" of the union leaders would
be held in Chicago tomorrow morn
ing, prior to their meeting with the
Railway Labor Board.
siens CrIticises Labor Doard.
"I note by the paper.," Warren S.
Stone, head of the Brotherhood of
Engineers, said In a statement this
morning. "that the Railway Labor
Board is going to assert its author
ity. It is strange that It should be
discovered only when labor is trying
to better Its condition and is filing
a protest against further wage re
ductions, and that then. and not un
til then, the United States Railway
Iabor Board has full authority.
"In the case of the Missouri and
North Arkansas in February. the At
lanta, Birmingham and Atlantic ,ln
March. the Pennsylvania, the Erie
and numerous other roads that could
be mentioned, the railroad officials
have simgly flouted the authority of
the labor board and have told them
-very plainly and forcibly that they
would not recognise them and abide by
their decisions, and now at this late
date the boird commences to talk
about asserting their authority when
labor Is interested.
"If the prese reports are to be be
lieved, the Administration has issued
a statement that it now proposee to
find out whether or not the United
States Labor Board is a useless public
board. Why has not the Administra
tIon taken this position long ago? The
violation on the patt of the railroads
has repeatedly been brought to the
attention of the Administration and no
action wasn taken."
Reply to Businees Man.
Stone's utatemnent was in reply to a
telegram received this morning from
A. E. Duncan, of Atlantic City, who
declared he represented "four com
panies with aggregate resources of
about $25,000,000. and annual business
volume of $75,000,000." In the tele
gram, Duncan declared he "strongly
supported the railroad executivee' pro
poeed plan of further wage and rate
reductions, regardless of the outcome
of the threatened strike, and declared
"an actual nation-wide strike is more
to be desired than everlasting fear of
"Call your strike." the telegram
ended, "and see how quickly railway
employee are taught a much needed
lesson and what a failure labor unions
are making of their affairs."
