TRAINMEN MAY STRIKE CAN'T
The overwhelming vote of rail
road trainment in favor of 8-hour
day is surprising even the union men.
While the definite result of the vote
will not be made public until May 1,
it' is known that less than 5 per cent
of the 400,000 affected workers have
voted against the proposition.
In one way the vote may be taken
as a direct slap in the fact for Grand
Chief Stone of the locomotive en
gineers, who, the workers believe,
spoofed them out of their" rights by
not fighting hard enough in the re
cent long and tedious arbitration
hearing which resulted in a victory
for the railroads.
Stone is an exponent of arbitra
tion, and the men, smarting from
bitter arbitration experience, want
no more of it. They have made

trainmen, who would be benefited but

runs of 100" miles or less; on runs
when time on duty exceeds miles run
divided by 12y2; no- one to- receive
less for 8 hours or 100 miles than
they now receive working longer
hours or running more miles. .
