Eailroads Threaten to Challenge J
Employes' "Inalienable i
Eight" to Free Rides.
Chicago, m. April 10. Issuance of
free transportation to approximately i
8,.no,000 persons throughout the j
United Stales may be eliminated by 1
the railroads as a result of the pros- '
enf. agitation in favor of full-crew bills
Id various parts of the country.
General managers of railroads in
Colorado announced recently that if a
full-crew bill now pending In the let;- t
Mature, of that state is enacted into '
law, there will be no more pauses fur-
n:nu"l to employes or members of
their families The contention is made
that full crew legislation is being pro
ir.nted by the employes, that it tends '
to incrcae the operating expenses of '
the companies, that in order to meet
these Increased expenses they must
make savings in other directions and
that the most feasible way to make !
them would be to curtail free traflB- I
In commenting on the subject, tin
president of one of the large roadB en- '
terlng Chicago said yesterday:
"The effect of full-crew legislation is
to mnke it necessary to employ more 1
men and thereby to increase operating !
expenses. Such laws. In the opinion j
of railroad officers, are both unneces- '
s'iry and burdensome. The net reve- j
rues of most railways are not large
enough to Justify Increases in ex
penses in some directions which are ,
not accompanied by reductions in ex- j
pMises in other directions. The elim-i
ir.ation of the issuance of free trans
portation to employes and their fain-j
Hies seems the most feasible and sat
h. factory method of meeting the Bit-:
"There are 1,700,000 railway em-:
plnyes in the I'nlted States. There
ae about five persons In the average
family and. assuming that each em
ploye represents a family, they repre
sent a to'ul of 8,r00,00() persons to
whom f ratihportation is now freely glv-

Miss Grace Helen Zane.
Announcement has been made of the engagement, of Miss Grace Helen
Zane of Wasbineton, D. C. and Lieutenant J. B. Earl of the United States
navy. The wedding will take place in the near future. Miss Zaae Is the
daughter of Captain A. V. Zane, a X'nited States nary officer, and is consid-
red one of the prettiest girls of the national capital.
en. This fgure represents about 9
per cent of the population of the coun
try. As a class railway employes are
very well paid and therefore do not
need free transportation any more
than any other class of persons."
While no action has been taken to
date, it is known that the subject has
been discussed at several meetings of
Chicago railroad officials and also at
conferences of railway executives
various other cities.
