PLACES i THE MEXICAN RAILWAYS
Agreement Beached Wdok
Officials of Railroad and
Unions Say Is Satisfac
tory. It is all settled. There will be no -walkout
of American employes of the Na
xional railways of Mexico. It has been
hanging fire for many -weeks, and yes
terday a settlement wasmiade in the City
Both employers and employes declare
that a mutually satisfactory agreement
has been made, and as far as the public
is concerned the matter is ended.
To End Bitter Feeling.
Agitation based on the alleged dis
crimination between Mexican and Amer
ican employes of the National railways
has resulted in much bitter feeling, But
that, too, may be eliminated. Even be
fore the settlement a feeling of frater
nity was felt between American and
Mexican trainmen. It was said by anany
that not a few Mexican freight conduc
tors would bear out their American fel
lows if it came to a "show down."
Only in a general Tvaj' is the. agree
ment made public. The president of the
railway and the chairman of the com
mittee of conductors and engineers sign
ed the agreement Wednesday afternoon.
Here is -what E. N. Brown, president
of the company, has to say:
"A satisfactory adjustment has been,
reached between the company and the
committee of the engineers and con
ductors, the settlement beiug in lino
with tile policy set forth in the reso
lution of the board of directors, which
was published some time ago. The set
tlement is considered mutually sausiac
tory." Theodore Curtiss, of the Order of
Railroad conductors, has issued an
equa'ly brief statement. It is:
"A satisfactory settlement of the dif
ferences between the conductors and en
gineers and the management of the Na
tional railways of Mexico was effected
at a meeting -with president Brown yes
terday, and the agreement was signed
yesterday afternoon. The, committee
representing the engineers and conduc
tors has received satisfactory assurance
that the policy of the board of directors
will be carried out by the subordinate
"Wnen the agreement was signed all
differences between the imeu and the rail
road management ceased," said vice
grand chief Corrigan of the Brother
hood of Locomotive engineers, in dis
cussing the settlement.
"There are a few smaller matters to
be adjusted, but the main questions are
settled. We cannot give out the terms
Basis of Agreement.
It is granted that the agreement was
based on resolutions adopted by the rail
road board In January, as follows:
"That instructions be given to the
executive president of the company to
the effect that by means of circular,
bulletin or otherwise, as he may see fit.
he may advise Mexican and foreign em
ployes in the service of the company,
that, with a view of putting a
stop to any misunderstanding or er
roneous interpretation of the attitude of
the board of directors, this board sets
forth that its policy has been and will
continue to be,-that the most equitable
a"nd complete impartiality insofar as the
relation between the company and its
employes, be observed..
"That it does not propose to discon
tinue cmploj'ing foreign citizens and
much less to exclude these already serv
ing, by reason of their nationality, but
to give the Mexican citizens, for rea
sons which are obvious and publicly
known, a chance and opportunity to be
promoted to responsible positions in the
service of the railways, always when
this may be coupled with an efficient
and safe operation of the company's
"That in order to carry this into ef
fect, the instructions of the board of
directors have been and will continue
to be that "whenever a vacancy occurs it
will in all preference be filled with Mex
ican employes when they have both the
competency and qualifications required
therefor, and for this purpose the com
pany has appointed competent and im
partial committees which will continue.
to act in ordei- to examine candidates..;
or applicants tt the positions of en
gineers and conductors and one of the j
ticials from the engineers and conduc
tors in service."
WHESE WILL THE
TICKET AGENTS GO?
Xot in the Hereafter, But
Eight Now Where Will
They Get Offices'?
Three poor, lonely derenceless ticket
offices without any homes! Sad, isn'J
it? But it will soon be true.
All of a sudden property owners
about the plaza have been smitten with
1 the remodeling fever. And the poor,
ticket offices are going to suffer
goodness, gracious me!
They have tried to get together and
form a ticket office union, but union
blood doesn't seem to flow in ticket
agents' veins. It looks very much like
"shift for yourself, Mac," ,and "paddle
your own canoe, William."
When they start doing things to the
Sheldon hotel front both the E. P. & S.
W. and the Texas & Pacific ticket
shops will have to hie away somewhere.
j And that remodeling of the Mills build
ing -will oust the Santa Fe ticket dis
pensary. But where, or where, will
It will never do to ask ticket buyers
to climb stairs, it is averred. So the
office building is out of .the question.
And then after the buildings are re
modeled, higher rents are sure to fol
low, and will Gen. Manager stand for
that? Well, if he does, that doesn't
help things now.
For many days the Santa Fe, T. & P.,
and E. P. & S. W. ticket folk have been
J holding self-condolence meetings. It
has been suggested that all city offices
be collected in one bunch and housed
in the ground floor of some central
block. But nothing has resulted so
And all the while the G. H. & S. A.
and the Southern Pacific joint offices
or rather the passenger folk contained
are smiling at the down town tur
moil. The G. H. people are in a cozy
aittle col: up by the St. Regis hotel and
they alone don't have to move.
Elf GINE CREW IS
SCALDED BY STEAM
Pipe Blows Out of Engine
Boiler; Fireman Fatally
Childress, Tex., Feb. 10. Engineer
Jack Nash and fireman Bob Ferguson,
'bothtof Ft. Worth, were seriously in
jured this morning by an explosion on
a Denver railroad passenger engine
near this city. The train was running
25 miles an hour when a blower pipe
was blown out of the boiler, and the
full force of steam and water struck
Nash, knocking him from the cab.
His hands, face, head and neck were
badly burned and he may die.
.Ferguson escaped the blow out but
was compeled to pass through a cloud
of steam to crawl through a window
from whence he jumped to the ground.
Ferguson shut the throttle before leap
ing! The passengers saw both men hit the
ground, after which the train stopped
and they rushed back to their aid. A
freight pulled the train-to Childress.
Both men were taken to a hospital.
Nash is a wealthy real estate owner.

Advocates Withdrawing of
Credit by Credit Men's
A plea for cooperation between El
Paso railroad employe organizations,
and incidentally a wallop at t.e move
ment for garnishment in the s .ate. was,
made by C. F. Goodrldge, chairman of
the joint labor legislative board at Aus
tin, before an open meeting Wednesday
afternoon oj the local Order of Rail
way Conductors. Mr. Goodridge, who
represents the O. R. C. on the joint rail
road board at the state capital, made a
strong and pernaps effective plea, for
the organization of a joint board ic
take up local affairs in El Paso.
Addressing his hearers as 'you boys,"
the veteran railroader said:
"There is no reason why El Paso
should not have a duplicate organiza
tion to the state board. The labor board
at Austin has surprised all in its re
sults. It takes votes to get legisla
tion, and that takes strength at home,
not alone at the capital.
Touching on the alleged alliance with
the farmers' union, and declaring it to
be groundless of truth, he continued:
"The employers have not been harmed.
But safety appliances, on railroads as
the child labor legislation, has been
accomplished by the unions, but against
the bitter opposition of the employes.
Now the officials point with pride to
the appliances on equipment and say,
'we could not get along without that."
"Organize at home, right "here in this
city, and you can get anything you wane
that is fair and honest. But there is
a danger in power, and you can not be
too careful of whom you select to lead.
The straight honest way is the only
way. Do not hesitate to affiliate with
some other union because is weaker
than yours, or because there is some
dishonest man in it. By affiliation you
can help the honest men throw out the
dishonest men. There are- dishonest
men in every class on earth, but there
are not so many after all.
. "The Retail Credit association is ad
vocating the garnishment law in Texas,
although it is against the constitution
of the state. They have a man at Aus
tin to push the measure. I don't be
lieve they will get it through but do
nqt let them. We don't believe in the
dead beat, but we believe that more
good men would suffer than dead beats.
"They make the credit system them
selves. Let them reform by abolishing
credit, their own creation. It may be
