The United States Rubber Company

This gigantic Company's factories,
plantations, branches, agencies, labora

dotted entirely around the globe a vast
empire of American industry.
Another world's industrial record
established for the United States by

This company could never have reach

not made and sold
"Service" and "Satisfaction"

into extra quality production.
3 By giving a better grade of

Our Efforts to Fulfil Our Duty
To the People of New York
To the People of New York City:
Our supreme duty is to prevent an interruption in the atratt
railway service of New York.
A communication alleged to represent the demands of our men
has been handed to the Mayor. This communication was signed y
non-resident officers of an alien organization.
' We have had no disputes with our men, and no
communication from them. We shall, of courts), how
I ever, confer with the Mayor, and at any time with
: our own men.
The canvass we have made convinces us that our men are loyal
and wish to co-operate with us in maintaining service for the peopla
of New York.
I addressed two large mass meetings of our men at the 99th St.
and 50th St. car barns last night. At least 2,500 men were present
I told the men very frankly our position, and with great enthusiasm
these men promised their support.
We have had a very happy family in the years in which I have
been associated with the Management of these Companies, and no
questions have hitherto arisen which could not be satisfactorily set
lied without necessity for outside interference.
In order that there may be no mistake on our part, however, as
to the present attitude of our men, we have asked them to select by
secret ballot a group of their fellow-employes empowered to discuss
matters of common interest and to consider effective methods of
maintaining uninterrupted the transportation service expected by the
people of New York.
We are in no attitude of resistance toward our own men.
Our policy is and has been to work with them and to stand by
The sole reason why we feel it unwise that they
ally themselves with an alien organization is that we
and they are responsible to New York and to New
York alone for maintaining without interruption from
any cause the transportation service in this city.
The present tie-up on the Third Avenue Railroad is wholly due to the exigen
cies of a dispute in a neighboring community.
Alliance by New York street railroad employes with a foreign organization
would mean that the transportation service of this City might at any time be inter
rupted without reference to conditions in New York, and solely to promote in some
other city the interests of an organization in no sense responsible as we arc and as
our employes are to the people of this Community.
We recognize a peculiar obligation to our men, and we have felt that they
should receive more than ordinary consideration.
As the Company has prospered, therefore, we In--nuiv times in recent years
increased the wages of the men.
We now propose to go a step further in an effort to get closer to our men,
and to protect the public against interrupted service.
We believe there are no subjects which may arise at any time which
cannot be disposed of at a friendly conference between accredited anu
representative employes and ourselves.
In addition to considering with a committee of our employes any questions
now at issue, we shall invite these representatives to join with us in perfecting a
permanent plan for securing more effective understanding and co-operation be
tween management and men.
We therefore appeal to the people of New York to co-operate with us and our
loyal employes in working out a satisfactory and permanent solution of the rela
tionship between management and men which shall be fair to all concerned, and
which shall, above all else, protect the supreme right of the people of New York to
enjoy without alien interference an nn interrupted transportation service.
