Chicago. Four millions of dollars a
year was what the officials of 61
western railroads put in the stocking
of the locomotive engineers. The gift
brought "peace and good-will" and
averted what might have proved one
of the most disastrous strikes in the
history of the country.
Commissioner of Labor Charles P.
Neill played the part of Santa Claus
to the engineers. For seven days he
worked to bring the railroads and the
engineers together. In spite of their
repeated assertions that they had
reached the limit, the managers made
concessions In the face of a threat
ened strike. Concessions were made
by the engineers, also, but they es
tablished two of the chief point3 for
which they contended Jurisdiction
over motor-trucks and an increased
schedule for the Mallet type of en
gine. The increase granted the men
runs as high as 14 per cent on cer
tain engines and as low as 8 per cent
on the higher-paid runs. The average
increase to the payrolls of the rail
roads Is 101-3 per cent

bills have been gotten out of the way

Power Site Bill Drawn.
Advocates of state control of water

forts on a bill recently Introduced by
Senator Smoot, which embodies the
ideas set foith by Secretary Ballln
ger in his annual report. This bill
was prepared Jointly by Senator
Smoot and officials of the Interior
Department and has proven accept
able, in the main, to all western sen
ators and representatives who believe
that waterpower development should
be regulated by the states rather than
by the national government.
It is too early in the session to de
termine whether or not there is any
chance for the passage of the Smoot
bill before adjournment on March 4,
but If opportunity presents the
measure will be pressed to early con
federation In the senate, in the hope
it may be taken up by the house after
the appropriation bills are out of the

called upon to answer a charge which
Is not made against him until after
the lapse of so long a time," is the
opinion of Special Prosecutor Heney,
who moved for the dismissal of all
charges against Blnger Hermann, ex
Representative in Congress and ex
commissioner of the general land of

missed all the cases.
Willard N. Jones was sentenced by

Indicted, the offense of wnlch he was

agreed. Heney explained that Jones
