Low Writes to Managers.
Members of the committees represent
ing the trainmen and conductors were
wrathful yesterday over the eight ques
tions the railroad managers propose to
have Incorporated In the list of proposi
tions to bv arbitrated. Like Presidents
unrrcison ami tney said tncy un
.li.Mtnnll ,hnt thn .inlv nllMtlnn. nt ln.ua
woro tno jemands of the trainmen and
The same view was taken by Presl-
1pnt Sp'" Low and other ofllcera of the
Nntlonal Civic Federation who attended
yesterday to Kllslia Lee, chairman of
tho managers' conference committee,
In which he snld In part:
"Messrs. Garretsnn and Lee have Just
Informed me that if the questions raised
by the railroads In your communication of
yesterday are presented as a condition
upon which the proposed arbitration of
the questions submitted by tnem shall go
forward may would deem the Insistence
upon such a condition, as tantamount to
a breach of faith. They do not quesMon
the right of the railroads to submit to
them In a proper way and at a proper
time questions wnieh the railroads wish
arbitrated. To do so would be to take a
position not only unreasonable In Itself
but entirely out of harmony with the spirit
In which they and the brotherhoods which
they represent have dealt with the rail
roads from the moment that the effort
began to secure satisfactory amendments
of the Rrdman law. They do believe.
however, that the railroads are honornbly
bound to dispose of the questions raised
by them on their own merits and apart
from any other question before they are
asked to consider new and far reaching
problems, to which neither they nor their
brotherhoods have given the slightest con
Arrana-e for Conference m-itar.
"I am entirely In sympathy with this
view. If It has been the Intention of the
railroads to submit these questions as
soon as the new law was passed and as a
part of the pending controversy I think
this purpose should have been made known
to the brotherhoods before their aid was
accepted In securing the passage of the
N'cwlands law. It must not he lost right
of that the brotherhoods were willing to
arbitrate under the Krdman act as It was,
hut they Joined the railroads In asking
for the' Newland a law because they
thought the desire of the railroads for a
larger board of arbitration was reason
able and fair. They also shared the wish
of the railroads for an Independent board
of mediation and conciliation, such ns is
provided in the N'cwlands net.
"This atltude of the brotherhoods
toward the railroads as to the size of the
board of arbitration fairly entitles them
to ask at the present time that the rail
roads confine tho Immediate arbitration to
the questions raised by them. This re
quest seems to me both reasonable and
Just and I venture to express the very
earnest hope that the railroads which you
represent will accede to it. If, after
considering this letter, you are still In
doubt, I respectfully ask for nn oppor
tunity to be heard by your body as I
was heard by the. representatives of the
brotherhoods, for whom Messrs. Oarret
son and Lee speak, when they were hesi
tating whether or not to withdraw from
any further effort to secure the amend
ment of the Krdman act."
The members of the managers' con
ference committee would not comment
on this totter, but arrangements were
made for n conference with Mr. Low
at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
Explains Right Propositions,
"In case tho eight propositions of the
railroads urc not Included by the media
tors under the Newlands law In tho
matters to be'arbltrated, would the rail
roads refuse to arbitrate?" a member of
the managers' committee wns asked,
'They are not contemplating the
crossing of bridges until they come to
them," ho replied.
As to the first proposition, "When a
minimum day's wage Is puld In nnv
class of servlco It shall entitle tho rail
road to the full mileage or hours of
service paid for," he snld:
"Under the present system If a man Is
shifted In a day from one kind of work
to another he sometimes gets two days
pay. . .
"The proposition against uuuuw com
pensation related to cases on rallronds
where there were both the mile and hour
rates of compensation."
The third proposition that the same
classification be applied to all members
of the train crew In fixing compensation
spoke for Itself, he said, The reason why
the fourth proposition called for the
abolition of all monthly guarantees was
that men who had not done a full month's
work were sometimes paid for a full
month. The fifth proposition that con-
slderatlon tie given 10 ine reouciion or
the existing pay of yard brakemen under
certain conditions, he said, was because

SUES FOR SEPARATION'
Court Denies Application for
Alimony and Coun
Affidavits filed In the Supreme Court
yesterday were the first Intimation that
1'rof. Albert Arthur Livingston, associ
ate professor of Romance languages and
literature In Columbia University, Is
defendant In a suit for separation
brought by his wife, Mrs. Laura Manley
Livingston, who was a teacher In tho
Wadlelgh High School when she mar
ried Prof. Livingston. In 1909. The
parties to the suit are still occupying
tho same apartment at 373 West 116th
street. Prof. Livingston said he be
lieved ho could effect a reconciliation
with his wife If ho could Induce his
wife's mother and sister to leave.
Tho affidavits were submitted to Su
preme Court Justice Glegerlch on an
oppllcatlon by Mrs. Livingston for $100
a month alimony. Mrs. Livingston
charged her husband with cruelty and
said he assaulted her several times.
She accused him of abandoning do
mestic happiness for a club whoso
members bellevo In free love and said
ho proposed that she give him the evi
dence upon which he could divorce her
or permit him to supply to her the evl
dence with which she could get a de
Coart Ilenlea lienors!
Prof. Livingston denied all his wife's
charges nnd accused his wife's mother.
Mrs. Mary J. Manley. nnd her sister,
Helen Manley, n school teacher, of as
saulting him. Justice Glegerlch re
fused to grant either alimony or coun
sel fee on the ground that there, appears
to bo no probability that Mrs. Living
ston will succeed In her suit.
In her affidavit Mrs. Livingston said
her husband gets a salary of $3,500 a
year and earns additional money by
writing, lecturing and teaching In the
Columbia summer school. Mrs. Liv
ingston said sho would now be earn
ing $1.10 a month teaching if her hus
band hadn't persuaded her to give up
her profession to marry him. She

began to show signs of Irritability
ajid abuse me without reason. He
called mc a thief, blackmailer and para
site, and said he desired to get rid of me
as soon as possible. He assaulted me
vlntentlv hen- and In Ithaca.
"In Nnvemlier. 1912. the defendant
Joined a club and compelled me to go
there with him. From what I heard
thero and saw of the class of members
I can assure the court that iost of the
members are a lot of people who bellevo
In free love and have no conception of
the sanctity of marriage.
"Mv husband has brought home ob-
Jectlonnblo persons and compelled me to
meet and serve them. I have taken sev
eral college degrees and am much above
them and refuse to associate with tnem.
Trouble In Italy.
The plaintiff says she and her hus
band went to Italy In 1911 and that he
took along a woman student of Co
lumbia. She chargew that tho conduct
of her husband nnd the woman was
so scandalous thnt hotel keepers warned
him that his conduct wns offensive. In
addition she alleges the woman stole
her purse and her husband refused to
permit her to prosecute.
Mls Helen Manley. the plaintiffs sis
ter, said she hn refused to quit tho Liv
ingston apartment becnusc she Is afraid
to leave her sister alone wit rror,
In his answering nffldavlt Prof. Liv
ingston says hid wife's charges aro all
untrue. He is 29 years old and wns
eradunted from Amherst In 1904. He
alleged that his wife's mother and sis
ter caused the trouble between them by
complaining because he didn't give his
wife enough money. He gave nis wire
nil his ealary last spring, he sold, and
Inter she drew all the money from tho
bank nnd refused to give him nny to
pay his bills. Ho had to borrow money
to buy his lunches, he said.
The defendant denied tho charges
concerning his nttentlons to tho Co
lumbia woman student nnd said "there
was no proof thnt sho stole the money
and to have arretted her would have
Involved us In serious consequences.'
Concerning one of his wlfo's chnrges
of assault Prof. Livingston snld his
father nnd mother came here from At
tleboro, Mass., for n visit and his wlfo
compelled them to leep on tho floor.
When they started to leave his wife
abused his mother so that he took her
by the arms nnd forced her into a
J chair. ITof. Livingston said his wife
i hid his class books and when he found
I them she attacked him
"She came ot mo In n rage, cnrrylng
n pair of sckssors, striking out and
-shrieking Hysterically, no assiertea. "i
held her arms to protect myself, and
her mother rushed out nnd beat me
about tho head nnd body with a broom
"The charge against the members of
tho club Is wholly false," said Prof,
"It Is quite true that a separation suit
ngalnst mo has been filed by my wife,1
snld Prof; Livingston last evonlng. "Tho
application was filed In June, but on
July 1 Justice Glegerlch of tho Supremo
Court handed down a decision which
wus an entire vindication of tho charges
