The A. B. C. of the Plumb Plan
What Is the Plumb Plan?
It is a plan for the public ownership and the democracy in the control ra
of the railroads. fe
Who Has Endorsed it?
The two million organized railroad employes of America; and the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, al;.roving the principle of government owner
ship. has instructed its executive committee to co-operate with the officers or
of the railroad internationals in their effort. It also has been endorsed by co
,everal farmers' organizations. to
How Does It Propose to Buy the Roads?
By issuing government bonds with which to pay for the legitimate pri
vatq interests in the. railroad industry.
How Does It Propose to Operate the Roads?
Iy a board of 15 directors, five named by the president, to representl
the public; five chcted by the operating officers; five elected by the classi- al
lied emplloyes.
Does This Mean Government Operation? It
No; it is operation by a board in v:hich those having the responsibility
have also the authority. It is superior to government operation because it
prevents control by an inefficient bureaucracy; and is true denmocracy since 1;
it gives the men engaged in the industry a voice ill its management. o
What Becomes of the Surplus?
After operating expenses are paid, and fixed charges are met, including
the interest on outstanding govertnment securities, the surplus is divided
equally between tile government and the nmen. The employes' portion is
to be divided between the managerial and classified employes, the former
receiving double the rate received by the latter class. This is not a profit.
since tile corporation has no capital. What the men receive is a dividend
on efficiency. b
Is This a Bonus System?
No, it is giving those .who increase production a share of the results a
their increased effort has produced; and this share is theirs for as long C
as they are actually in the service, and is not forfeitable.
Why Do Operating Officials Receive the Larger Rate of n
Because it serves as a greater stimulus to the group with the most re- V
sponsibility. And since the operating officials would lose dividends if w
wages were increased it acts automatnlically to prevent collusion between it
labor directors and the operating dire:tors to outvote the public's directors s
in raising wages beyond a reasonlable level. The chief argunlent against a
the plan is that thie pIublic loses control of its own property, and that the a
imen ill charge cannott be prevented froltl comlbining to pay themiselves ex- c;
tortionate wages. This imethod of shttling dividends sets up a natural bar- a
rier against collusioni a
Is This the Only Protection for the Public?
No, the rate-niaking piower remlaiitns with the interstate collmmerce com
mnissiont, anld if wages were raised so high that rates had to be increased,
I the coiimmissioni could refuse to chllane theti, and shippers tlight appeal to
the courts for redress. If the peeriation by the directors results in a dte
ficit, congress can r'evioke their ctharter.
Does This Difference in Dividends Create Hostility Between a
Officials and Men?
No, 6ecause without hlarmony bet cieen them neither group can earn
dividends. An official ill working for his own dividend is working for the
dividend of his subordinates, for oneo cannot gain unless all gain.
Does the Plan Assure a Decrease in Rates?
It iprovides that when the government's share of the surplus is 5 per t1
cenllt or imore of the gross operating revenue, rates slihall be reduced accord
ingl]y toi abtsolrb the aloutlit the goverlltunnt. receives. For instance: If
the entire surplus one year is $500,000,000, and this is 10 per cent of the
gross oplerating revenuIe, the governt.int receives $250,000,000. And le
icause this is 5 pher cent, rates are dcretased 5 per cenit. See what follows:
Without new ec(wonomicS or new uIsiness tlie profits the next year would
be only $2P".t o.l!*i00l,00, and the enltp loiyes iand the governlellnt would re
ceive on(ly half the amounlllt of the ye0r. Ibefore. But decreased rates lmleanl
molllre buisiniesss; and. also, the reduction in dividends would stitmulate the
,,lltlployes to imlnrove their operation by applying better mnetllods. So the
tendency is to assure constantly dlecrel:sing rates, to add to the volume of
buisiness, anld to give the imost efficienlt service huminan ingenuity and de
votion cati provide. I)ecreased rates nmean cheaper commodities; and so,
thriough the effectiveness of the railroads, the purchasing power of money
is increasedl, not only for the railroad mtan, but for every wage earner and
every purchaser.
What Does the Government Do With its Share of the Surplus?
It invests it in imllprovements and extensions, thus adding to the value
of the railroads without adding to the fixed charges. It retires the out
;:standing tionds, thus reducing the fixed charges. Ultimiately the public
has is t rail'oald service ati cost.
Does the Government Pay for All Extensions.
No, the communuity benefited nmust lay if it can; if it is able to pay all,
the building of the extension is obligatory. If it only pays part, the gov
Sernment pays the remainder, but only makes the extension as it deems
_wise. And where the general public end not a local commnunity would be
benefited, the governmlent pays the whole bill.
How Are Disputes Between Officials and Men Adjusted?
By boards, to which the operating officials elect five mnembers and the
men, five members. In case of failure to reach an adjustment, the case is
appealed to the directors.
Who Determines the Rate of Wages?
Tire board of directors.
Who Supervises the Purchase of the Roads?
A purchasing Iboard, composed of the interstate commerce commission
I and thriee directors of the new government corporation, one director frotl
each group.
Who Decides the Value of the Private Interest in the Railroads?
The courts. It is a judicial question, and is to be answered only after
ant examination of the charters of the existing companies, the laws under
which they were created, and the manner in which the company has lived
tup to its charter and these laws.
Will the Public Have to Pay for Watered Stock?
No. The public will probably pay less than two-thirds of what the rail
roads claim as their value.
Are There Other Savings?
Yes. tile public can obtain the nloney to purchase the lines at 4 per
cent. wilereas the public is inowv charged rates to guarantee the roads 6/%
per cent oil their ltoney. The saiving on the present capital account of
the railroads would be about $400.000,100, and on an honest valuation
would be nearly twice this sum. The Plunmb plan provides for a sinking
fund and every year one of the fixed charges would be 1 per cent of the
i outstanding indebtedness. to be used in retiring the bonds. The govern
i lent also uses its irofits in retiring bonds, so eventually, probably in 50
years. the people would owni the road:; debt-free. A further saving would
be in the operation of the roads as a unified systeim, which permits the
interchange of equipntent, thle end cf wasteful conlpetition, andti greater
ecotnomy in buying supplies. Undler tris plan passenger rates of 1 %i cents
a ulile, and a reduction of frieght rates by 40 per cenit appear reasonable.
Why Is It Called the Plumb Plan?
Because it was conceived by Plenn E. Plulllb, general counsel for the
Organized IRailway Eimployes oif America.
o What Can You Do to Help its Realization?
Join the Plum Plan league (lohdge ilemlnbership, $10 a year; individual
smembership. $1, playable to Treasurer, Pltunb Plan League, 447-453 Mun
sey Bldg., Washington), talk withi your friends, aiid write your congress
iman. It is the only association to secure public ownershipi that has the
sendorsement of the organized railr'oad employes.
Who Is Eligible to the League?
Every one whlo believes that democracy in industry is the solution of
Ithe railroad iproblem.

to carry on the defense of the Bulletin staff in the courts. Two
members cf the staff have been fined a total of $9,500, on
charges of sedition, charges which were the direct result of
the effort of the corrupt political machine in Montana to put
a free press out of business. The cases have been appealed
to the State Supreme Court. It requires money to fight
these cases through the various courts; it takes money for
traveling expenses, etc., for transcripts of evidence and ste
nographers' hire. None of the money goes to pay lawyers'
fees, the lawyers engaged in the cases not only having donat
ed their services, but actually paying their own expenses.
The fines imposed and the expenses of fighting the cases
through the courts, are the result of the Bulletin Staff keep
ing the Bulletin alive, despite the order issued by the copper
interests-and if you believe the Bulletin has been of ser
vice to the cause of labor and the honest element generally,
you should help defray the expenses incident to the fight for
a FREE PRESS by contributing according to your means.
The need for funds is imperative and you should not delay
sending in your contributions.
