President Asks Railroad Labor

, Washington, Jun S3. President Wll
. aon cent a messaa-e todav tn tha mil
road labor board at Chicago urging that
, it make an Immediate, award of the
wn comic versy. The text of the .a
. aage was not made aubllc at the Whlta
Uousa. . , . , .
Announcement of the president'! ac
tlon was made after W. k. Honk. vlo.
president of the trainmen's brotherhood,
had called at the White House. Mr.
' Doak did not see the president, but was
In- conference about fifteen minutes with
Secretary Tumulty. Mr. Doak declined
to discuss his conference with Secretary
, Tumulty, but said he would have a
statement later' In the day.
-Information prepared for submission
to Secretary Payne today Indicated that
unless assurances were given Immedi
ately to railway workers that a wage
nujusimeai mignt De expected soon,
the Unauthorized atrllta nf trainman mt
Philedelphia, taltlmore and many other
points, might not b opposed further
vy me orotnemooaa.
; Mr. Doak expected to consider the
situation wim Mr. Payne, who Is director-general
of the railroad administra
tion. He also Plans to leave this week
for Chicago, where the railroad labor
uoara is meeting.
Reports to labor headquarters here
Indicated no Improvement In the sit
uation and pointed to increased un
rest amor g the men. Labor leaders said
that since the beginning of the unau
thorized strikes, 30,009 men had been
dismissed from the unions, but that the
feeling was growing that to continue
disciplining the men was Impracticable.
' Mr. Doak. In a statement Issued- fter
he, had conferred with Mr. Tumulty and
with Secretary Payne, head of the rail
road administration, said the heads ol
the railroad brotherhoods hoped there
.would be a settlement of the wage
question this week and that if not 'prob
ably the situation will b much worat
than at present." , .
"Appeals have gone up from all parts
of the country to the labor board," said
Sir. Doak. "and we desire the public te
know that this much heralded and ad
vocated method of adjusting questions
of this character, according to the pres
jnt indications, Is a rank and hopeless
"The chief! of tha brotherhoods," Mr.
Doak s statement continued, "are con
sidering means to assist in every man
ner to start the wheels of transporta
tion, but know full well that these men
must first be given substantial In
creases In pay before auch can be ac
complished. ."The board has no reasonable or le
gitimate excuse In not granting sub
stantial Increases In wages to railroad
employes and there can be no escape
from the responsibility that the United
States ratlraad board now sitting in
Chicago la wholly responsible for the
present bad situation.! They have been
told of the seriousness of the situation,
but they apparently are not alive to
their duties and responsibilities. The
brotherhoods have Informed them of
the Impending crisis and they would not
act. We Informed them that unless
they did act we should be compelled to
appeal to the American puhlio and to
notify tha president of the United
States of the seriousness of this sltua?
tlon. . They will, not heed the' appeal.
. "The railroad labor organizations de
sire the public to know the truth and
to fix the responsibility where It right
fully and Justly belongs. We have done
everything reasonable to keep transpor
tation moving, our men have, waited for
..year without relief and have worked
at wages on which they could not main- I
tain their- families. We have apprised
very one, congress, the public, the
prees and the United States railroad la
bor board, that these men could not be
expected td continue In the employ of
the railroads under such conditions, yet
no relief has been afforded them, so
they are now leaving the service of the
railroads." ,
"The oresldent' message to the war
railroad labor board will do much to
relieve the situation." said John Scott,
ocretary of the railway employes' de
partment of the American Federation
of Labor, which represents practically
alt the railroad workers with the excep
tion of the members of the "big four"
"It will help to reassure the men who
are threatening to strike. They are too
restless to wait much longer."
Other leaders expressed the opinion
that If the board failed to respond to
tha president's request there was little
hope of Immediate action on wage de
mands. The general chairmen and executive
boards representing every railroad sys
tem In the countrv. with Tull authority
from the men to act, will be called Into
conference before final action ia taken.
- Chicago. ' June 25. President Wilson's
message asking that the railway wage
board give an Intmedlate decision in
the wage controversy had not been re
ceived" here at 1 p.m., today, the board
Judge R. M. Barton, chairman of the
board, aunorlied a statement that all
possible was being done to expedite
the decision revising wages of all rail
road employes. It was indicated at tha
board's headquarters today that the de
cision probably would be handed down
within the next two weeks.
Jadge Barton said the impatience of
railroad men to get a decision was only
delaying the ease. He declared the
board's deliberations were being inter
rupted scores of times dally by dele-
Jatlons of railroad men asking that a
ate for the decision be set. As many
as 300 calls have been received In a
single day, he aald.
Tha board's publicity department de
clared that the delay. In reaching a de
cision had nothing to do with the pres
ent railroad strikes and that the board
believed the strikes would continue
even after the wage case is settled.
The strikes, tt was said, are prompted
by an Internal fight for control of the
railway unions and not primarily by
dissatisfaction with wages. The wage
question has been Injected, It was Inti
mated, to deceive the public.
Copies of the demands of the railway
clerk's union for an Increase, together
with requests for certain Information
regarding the wage paid, hours worked
and similar items, have been received
here) from tha wage board, which has
tha demands under consideration.
Practically all classes of railway em
ployes have asked Increases. Consid
erable time will be needed to provide
the Information requested by the wsge
The clerks are asking a i" cents an
hnur fist Increase, effective January 1,
1J20. with back pay from that date,
and In addition a sum sufficient to mske
their Increase In line with the Increas
ing cost of living. They also ask two

W. G. Lee, head of the Brotherhood
of Railroad Trainmen here today,
However, we" are going to mt in
Chicago on Friday and I am unable to

come of that meetlnsr.
The rumors of a general railroad
strike are flying thick and fast," con
tinued Mr. Lee. "but so far they are
all unfounded. The present situation Is
nearly normal, according to reports
which I have received from alt parts of
the country. This present ripple is
caused hv a few who have lost their
1obs by going out unauthorized and who
are getting others to Join them because

Senator John R. Neal will leave fot
San Francisco Wednesday night,
where he will attend the democratic na
tional convention.
Senator Neal's name will be on the
ballot for the democratic nomination for
governor. -It was placed there by quali
fying petitions signed by the senator's
friends, but filed without his participa
tion. '
i After Jils return from the San Fran
cisco convention, Senator Ncal will in
vestigate the state situation and will
decide whether he will enter the race
for the nomination and press his claims
for the ofllce. He takes the position
that as he has never, announced hit
oandldacy so far, 'he cannot talk ol
"withdrawing" from the race.
It is understood that Senator Meal
considers the Roberts tax machine a
thoroughly indefensible measure, and
feels that the governor under no cir
cumstances deserves a renomlnatlon at
the hands of the party.
