IN NEW RAIL LAW
Win Diners Here That Meas

rect Evils.
CRITICISES OLD SYSTEM
iPredicfs Much Good Through
Arrnnginp: I'"es in Strong
Competitive Groups.
Walker V. Illnes, formerly Commls
rlaner General of llallroads, was the
principal speaker lat evcnlns at the
thirteenth annual dinner of the New
Torlc Alumni Chapter of Sigma Chi,
which was held In the McAlpIn Hotel.
Areloslzlnff for dlscusslns to irious a
iubjeet on n fooIhI occasion, Mr. Illncs
iMnnly Indorsed tho new ltnllroad
Transportation act aa a plr.ee of lcslala
tlon much needed nml one that Is likely
to bo a low? way to correct many of the
evils that heset railway management
prior to 1917.
Diirltyr that phaso of Governmental
relation to tho roads preceding Federal
control In 1517 thero iv;ui much In
writable confusion. Timt Is rnnwMlnl to
a (treat extent, ho mild, by the direct
rate makluc rulo embodied In the new
atatuto Kuaranteclnp a 6'i per cent,
return on the valuation of the railroads
ea a wholo and the additional provision
permitting the fixing of rites hlprh
mouk1i to provido 'j of 1 per cent, for
Hi purpose of proparty hcttermontf.
"That, I think, is n ktoM Improvement
upon the old system." t.M Mr. lllnea.
"Under the old s-yHcm the Inter.stato
Commoroo Commission had to hear the.
odium Of flxtnc tJm sUmlanls and life
rates, and nltn of uppiyitiR tnem in
practice. Cjnsrtsa ncm- r.xcs the stand
ard and leaca the IntcrMate ("ommTce
commission to apply It.
"Another unfortunate phase of the old
system v.ia that It was contrary to tlie
law for the utronser companies to ac
quire tho weaker ones, whrrras the new
law rccoBiilres tmd p"rmlt the conpoll
dutlon of different railroad Interests un
der proper safeguards and reBUlatlun. It
distinctly rccOBUlre") the propriety of
proupins tho railroads Into a few strong
competitive aystcniH. which I think Is a
treat and litncflclal chanso of policy.
Wonlil Compel Coniolldaf Ion.
Tersonally, howovcr," Mr. nines
added. "I have frravo doubts whether
the iKNrt result!! can ho attained with
out providing for compulsory ronsolida
tlons, and the new law as yet does not
g-o fo far as that."
Tho sneaker also pointed out that
imdor the old system there wac no ef
fective way of dealing with laoor proh
Isrns and controversies between tho rail
road managements and their employee
'Tho new statute hai made important
progress In that respect," ho t-a'd. "It
signifies a de.nrc that the road shad
establish boards of adjustments -n
which the management and tho em
ployees 6hall ln equally roprcantcd.
We. found that while tlio roads wcro un
der Federal control suOi boards almost
always arrived at an amicable adjust
ment of tho points In controversy and
that their pcsslona sreatly Improved re
lations between the management and
the employees
"But the new transportation net cocs
further. It creates a laboar board to
Im composed of irtne members, three of
whom are to be named directly by tho
Mrtploycs, three by tho management and
three aa representation of tho public,
who are to bo designated by the Presi
dent with tho confirmation of tho Sen
ate. Tills laboar board la to lnvcutl
eato and to report upon labor contro
versies, wage probloms and other dif
ferences In Instances whero tho adjust
ment boards have fallel to agree.
"Tho act docfl not compel cither nlde
to abide by tho finding of tho labor
uoaro, nor ioc it prohibit striKos. ji
relies upon tho power of public, wentl
mcnt to enforce concurrence with Its
roooirtmcndiitlons. Hut I am very hope
ful that It will bo substantially Buccew
tid In bringing about greatly Improved
conditions.
Predict Vast Improvement
"In nil respects I regard tho new
ftatuto as promising a vast Improve
ment over railroad conditions as they
existed under private management and
operation prior to 1017. and, in my opin
ion, It tends largely to inmne the
causes for pessimism concerning the fu
ture of our railroads that existed Ije
foro that time."
Jtr. lllirfa pointed out that unfortu
nato features of tho present railroad sit
uation, Inevitable ns a result of their
position before and during war time,
wcro ahortago ot matorlal and equip
ment and tho high prices ol l.rnor.
'Tho roads, now that they have been
returned to privato management," hu
said, "are confronted by a very bcrlous
situation. They must mako up for tho
shortage of tho Inst four years. They
are confronted by a very largo business,
together with very Inadequate facilities
nnd equipment. Thero is danger, there
fore, that the public mny lxcomo die
contented with tho workings ot tho new
law before It has had a fair opportunity
to becoiim familiar with its many good
points. My hopo Is that tho publlo mny
appreciato that unfortunate condition
that now exist arc tho result of forces
that were wholly beyond human con
trol." Other speakers wcrtrtcphen T. Math
er, Commissioner of N'ntlonul Parks, and
Hoy Chapman Andrews of tho Ameri
can Museum of Natural History, who
Illustrated with moving pictures his tour
through Mongolia, where ho spent threo
years collecting specimens ot wild life.
The toastmastcr was Dr. J. H. Claiborne.
