The order removing the officials was
served at noon today without previous
notice, said the statement which con
"Burleson gives as a reason for tihe
order th'at we have failed to carry
out his orders and instructions. We
do not know what Burleson refers to
in the way of orders and Instructions.
It all is a pretense.
"The statement by Burleson that we
failed promptily to put into effect the
wage schedule Is a distortion. We
announced an Increase in wntges of all
our employees on Alarch 5, effective
from January 1. which was more gen
erous than that ordered by Burleson.
The H1u rleson schedule was based en
tirely on file Western Union plan of

ours, and It was impossible to apply
it to our organization. Hril esoni's op
