TROLLEYMEN CONFER ABOUT WAGEINCREASE Connecticut Company Averse to Raising Wages While Cut In Pay of Sal aried Men Remains in Force. Rem-esentatives of the various di visions of trolleymen in this state and Portchester, N. Y., met in an eight hour conference yesterday in New Haven with General Manager John K. Punderford and the various superin tendents in the employ of the Connec ticut company, this being the first conference of the kind called for a year and a half. C. W. Minnix of the general conference board, presented to the general manager a number of matters affecting employes of the company in many parts of the state and it is understood that that one or the questions to be taken to the road's officials Is that of a general increase In wages through the state and in Portchester. In connection with the proposition to have the road adopt a uniform wage scale came the request from the conference board to have the time limit for reaching the maximum wage reduced from five to three years all over the state. , The request for an increase of wages is alleged to be a surprise to the trolley management, as it comes before the restoration of the old sal-1 men in the employment of the New Haven road. Over a year ago these salaries were cut. Of course the trolleymen were not Included in this cut, and it is taken as somewhat doubtful that they will be given an increase until the salaries of the men who were cut are restored in whole or In part.
