' WANT CONGRESSIONAL
Washington, Feb.' 1. The
charge of the striking shopmen
on the Harriman lines that the
railroad was not observing gov
ernment safety appliance regula
tions, and the fight to force an in
vestigation, was carried to the
floor of the house of representa
tives today, when Rep. Berger of
Wisconsin offered a resolution
for a congressional investigation
of allegations by the strikers that
inefficient repairs on locomotives
and cars by strike-breakers have
caused loss of Hfe and property
and delay to the mails.
The measure requires specific
investigation of the charge that,
although aware that they "can
not efficiently operate tljeir lines
under present conditions," the
railroads are refusing to treat
wtih the strikers "for purely spec
ulative and stock exchange purposes."
- Centralia, 111., Feb. 1. Twen
ty deputy U. S. marshals, who
have been doing guard duty at
the local I. C. shops since the
strike injunction was issued by
the federal court, were relieved
from duty tonight and their com
missions and badges taken away
by Deputy U S. Marshal James
E. Bacon, who has been in charge.
Bacon said there had been some
dissatisfaction, but did not ex
plain. Guards will be removed from
the shops at East Si. Louis,
Mounds, Mattoon and other
will put a smalf force of guards
in each shop.

what Johnny McGraw says about
it isn't polite.
"Why I kept Marquard on the
payroll for two years when he
wasn't worth a a hill of beans,"
snorted McGraw today.
"That's all right, too," said
Rube. "I was content to accept
a small salary when I was not
delivering the goods. Now I am
as good as the best, and I am en
titled to more. Going to get it,
