By the Associated Press. i
CLEVELAND, October 11.?Methods
of settling: wage and working agreements
between the "big four" transportation
brotherhoods and the railroads
has entered a new era, and if
the present course of negotiations is :
continued the country- for several :
years at least, will not be threatened
with a complete tie-up of railroad
transportation through . a. concerted
strike of these brotherhoods on all !
lines of the nation, W. G. Lec, president
of the Brotherhood of Railroad ;
Trainmen, said yesterday.
The situation which developed in ;
1915 as a result of the eightrhour '
fight and again last fall, when the
trainmen's, conductors ; engineers'
and fireman's brotherhoods sent out
nation-wide strike orders, probably '
will not again occur.
See* llrenk-l p of liig Four.
Decentralization of all wages, rules
and working negotiations and return 1
to the system prevailing for twenty
years prior to the time when the
four train-service brotherhoods were
forced by the "eight-hour fight" to
pool their strength into what has 1
since become famous as the "big
four" railroad brotherhoods has already
set in, in the view of Mr. Lee.
The new alignment of the transportation
brotherhoods probably will
find the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen and the Order of Railway
Conductors in one group and the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers.
Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen
and Knginemen and the Switchmen's
Union of North America in another.
"1 feel that I am able to handle
my organization to better advantage.,
to cet more for mv men and to
work more effectively all around if
the trainmen and conductors g?> it
alone, so far as wapes and workingrules
are concerned." Mr. Lee said.
Separation Only Way Out.
"This whole business, with all railroad
labor unions on one side and
all railroads on the other, with the
Railroad Labor Board in between, got
too big for any one nxan or a few
men to handle. It was loaded with
dynamite for the country as well ?s
for ourselves and the executives. No
sane government would permit any
faction or class to paralyze the
transportation business of the country.
and thereby punish the innocent,
who are always in the majority. The
only way out was to separate."
"A nation-wide railroad strike is
not possible today." Mr. Lee said.
"It costs the railroads and the unions
which indulge in it more than they
can afford to lose. The shopmen's
strike proved that. When a strike
gets so big that it can't be controlled
then the government will step in
and control it. This results generally
in legislation detrimental to all

WOULD AID PRESIDENT
IN GUIDING COUNTRY
Correspondent Urges All Loyal
Americans to Lay Aside Partisanship
for Patriotism. '
ro the Editor of Tho 8t?r: We
are passing through perilous
times and efforts are being made to
strike at the very roots of our civilization
and freedom; therefore let
js. as loyal Americans, rally to the
colors und "do oiir bit" as we each 1
tried 80 faithfully to do not long
It seems to me that the time has 1
come for those of us who recognize j
the guiding hand of a Higher Power, (
who is back of all and in all, to
come out boldly and declare the 1
trum ana stand on principle. iuum i
think there has ever been a time
in the history of the world when the j
spirit of unrest has swayed men as 3
it is swaying them today. Neither <
do I believe thero has ever been a
time when man has sought Lift, or j
God, as he is seeking today. Most of
us may not know what we are seek- 1
ing?in fact, it is very evident that j
we do not know?therefore let the <
thinking men and women of our land <
rise up in their might and show those i
who need help how to find them- i
selves. Let us be loyal citizens and f
show those who know nothing of the i
higher things of life what loyalty i
really is. Let the men in high places,
who sway the opinions of thousands,
take heed lest their condemnation
and false criticism return to them in ,
As the great problems of today present
themselves, actually tumbling
over one another in the strivings or ;
men and bodies of men to put themselves
first. wo should lay aside all
partisanship and lend our aid to the
President and those associated with
him in guiding the affairs of the ]
country. It is not at all necessary
that we agree with everything that ,
is done, but let our criticism be con- ,
structive and not destructive.
Lest some one think I am a republi
can pleading" the cause of a republican
President in a rather subtle
manner, I want to say that I am a
stanch democrat and have never
hesitated to say that I am one.
although I am a government employe, i
I do not believe in government employes
becoming mere tree toads and
changing with every administration
As an American citizen, I appeal
to all Americans to join in the great
work of saving our homeland. The
time has come for us to lay aside
all littleness just as we did when the
great war came upon us and to come
to the aid of our men of affairs morally
and spiritually as we did physically
when we took up arms against
the common enemy.
There is a great common enemy ot
unrest, dissatisfaction and self-seeking
hovering over this country now.
which is causing it to boil and
seethe, and occasionally break forth
into steam, and in order that we may
not become a whole seething nation
as we see Russia today let those who
know the power of constructive
thought and right speech stand on
principle, and stand firmly, and
thereby bring order out of chaos.
We are known to the world as a
Christian nation. Let us be one in
reality and not in name only. Now, 1 j
am not talking about a sentimental,
maudlin religious attitude?we have 1
had too much of that and we are all
sick of it?but the time has come
when we, as a nation, must steady
ourselves by recognizing the guiding
hand of God (call it what you will? 1
first cause, principle, origin, or what- :
ever name may appeal to you) in all
our affairs, and we. as individuals. ,
can "do our bit" by asking that ,
Deity, with a believing faith?the J
faith of understanding and power? !
that those in charge of the great
issues of the day may be guided by
We know that "where there is no
vision the people perish"; therefore
let us forget personality and all pettiness
and by our communion with
the great Being back of all and in
us all, and our co-operation with our
/* run. Ionr!
