EXODUS OF EMPLOYES FROM
SECTION HANDS UP 18
S NOW ON
Of men from all lines of business
who go home for Christmas, the rail
roads furnish the largest per cent. It
may be because the transportation
cornea more easily to the railroad em
ployes than to the outsiders. At any
rate, the Christmas exodus js on and
railway employes, from section hands
to high officials, are on their way to
some point to spend the holidays.
The railroaders have been on the
move for some time, but yesterday fur
nished the greatest number that has
gone through and from Missoula this

leave of absence during the holidays
and will spend his time at his ranch

ductor, left yesterday afternoon for
Kansas City and will be away until
Takes Cold Easily.
Have you ever considered why you
should take cold easily? Is it not due
to a sensitive skin? That is the usual
cause. If so. take a cool but not cold
sponge bath every morning before
breakfast and rub with a dry towel
until the skin is dry and warm. Then
when you take a cold get rid of it as
quickly as possible, and to accomplish
this you will find Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy most excellent. Its re
markable cures of bad colds have won
for it a wide reputation and immense
sale. For sale by all dealcrs.-Adv.

EIGHT MACHINES WILL BE UN
DER THE ELECTRIC. POWER
OF THE ROAD
The Milwaukee will operate the first
electric train over the main line' be
tween Three Forks and Deer Lodge
October 1 next, and if the experimental
runs are successful the system will
be operated by electric power begin
ning January 1, 1916, according to
word received here.
The 12 electric motors to be used
with the first unit are to be of the
latest and largest design. The motors
will weigh 260 tons each and will be in
two parts, which will be permanently
coupled together. These.motors will be
112 feet 8 inches long, with a wheel
base of 103 feet 4 inches. Each of the
two parts of the locomotive will have
a wheel base of 46 feet 7 inches. There
are a few of the new Mallett steam
driven locomotives whidh atre about
the same length as the electric loco- 1
motives to be used on the trains which
will run into Butte, but few will have 1
the speed and power combined.
These motors will have 3,000 horse
power at a continuous rating and as
capacity of 3,400 at a one-hour rating. 1
Each locomotive will have embodied in I
its construction eight motors of 375
horse power, with a pair of driving i
wheels for each motor. In starting the I
motors will have a pull of approx- 1
imately 80,000 pounds.
The electric freight. loconrotives will
be able to pull a 2,500-ton train up a
1 per cent grade at a speed of 16 miles
an hour and two of the gigantic mo
tors will pull 2,500 tons up a 2 per cent
grade. It is planned, however, to util
ize one motor as a puller and one as a j
pusher on the freight trains in the
Among the features of the motors
will be the control and the system
known as regenerative braking. This
feature will be embodied in these mo
tors for the first time in the United
States, although well known in Europe.
The regenerative braking is to be used
in holding heavy trains on down
grades. It will provide a return of en
ergy from the motors to the trolley
wire while going down grade and will
be of assistance to trains coming up
The locomotives will be flexible to
an extent which will permit their great
length to round curves with safety.

OUT THAT RULE
,Chicago, Dec. 21.--Threats that the
enginemen would strike unless cIrtain
features of the efficiency tests in the
railWays' "safety. tirst" campaign
were eliminated were made today be
fore. the wage arbitration board by
Whrren S. Stone and William 8. Car
ter, representing the men.
The witnesses today told generally
of men laid off and promotion de
ferred by the advent of heavy engines,
of long hours and scant pay, the lat
ter impaired by expenses when away
from home. It appeared from the
testimony that on the heaviest en
gines, one fireman' cannot do all the
work required and is asSibted by the
engineer. The men claim that on
such engines an asilstaht fireman
should be provided.
It' appeared also that violations of
the 16-hour law are frequent.
The strike threat came when Stone
and Carter both declared that they
had been promised time and again
unfair tests would be eliminated, but
that the promises were disregarded.
"'If the courts cannot protect us and
the board cannot, the united strength
of the men will," declared Carter.
"The practices of which we complain
are condemned by the rules of the
railroads themselves, but they con
The men complain that the tests are
made in such a way that they frighten
the engine crew to a degree inimical
to health and sometimes' result in
their leaping from their engines.
