TO PUT RAILROAD
ON PEACE BASIS
•Director General Hines De
clares Address of Howard
> Elliott Unfair
By Associated Press
Washington, March 11.— Return
of the railroads to a peace basis as
to their labor forces and other con
ditions affecting cost of operation
will require several months. Direc
tor General Hines says in a state
ment in reply to an address made
by Howard Elliott, president of the
Northern Pacific Railroad Company,
last Saturday in Chicago.
E> Mr. Hinos.characterized as "un
fair" Mr. Elliott's comparison of the
number of employes of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company In De
cember. 1917, with the 16 per cent,
increased force on the payrolls of
that company in December. 191 S.
to demonstrate that Federal con
trol of the railroads was not produc
tive of the best results. The director
general said favorable weather dur
ing December of last year, and the
free movement of traffic, in contrast
with the bad weather and congested
traffic conditions in December, 1917,
justified this increase in workers
because of the greater opportunity
for car repair, maintenance of way
and other work. The Pennsylvania
railroad. Mr. Hines also said, could
not be considered typical, as the
average increase in number of em
of all roads from December.
1917. to January of this year was
only 5.2 per cent.
