WILL NOT MEET
SALT LAKE OFFICIALS , ARE
NO CHANGE IN SITUATION
General Manager . Says Increase In
Wages Will Be Made September
/ 1, at Originally Planned, but
"Am I willing to meet the striking
switchmen and effect a settlement of
the strike which they, have declared?
No,' Indeed. The Salt Lake road does
not know that they are on the face of
the, earth." This is the way General
Manager Wells expressed himself yes*
terday on the general strike of the
switchmen of the Salt Lake road at
Los Angeles, San Pedro, Callente and
i "I hardly think they will care to see
me," either," he continued. "The posl
tlons of those men who left us Tuesday
have already been filled,' " We simply
notified a numhor of those men who
'were on -'our waiting list and within
half an hour everything was moving
along as if nothing had happened. The
1 men are those who, for the most part,
.were waiting for road positions. Six
refused to .work. ' The remainder were
eager to do^ so..- They have gone to
work at the same wages paid those
'whose positions they are now filling.
•' '.'"The -strikers have made themselves
the laughing stock of other employes
and/ had they waited for a few weeks,
1 they would ■ have received an Increase
of wages along with a number of
: others, without any demonstration on
their part. We plan a general increase
in nearly all salaries after September
first . -t , • .. .
No Sympathetic Strike
"There has been no talk of a sym
pathetic strike and such is . not . con
templated by their fellows."
.;.'-.' At the 'headquarters of the road It
was i stated yesterday that everything
yas running along smoothly. ,
The fact Is that the strike was called
oh a day. when the Salt Lake was cop-
Ing" with the question of handling the
largest business ' in its history.. The
time for the walkout could not have
been. better. planned, but, now that the
road Is in a condition to take .'care of
Its .business, the advantage which the
strikers had does not favor their being
granted any consideration by the com
',T he only, delay on the Fourth was
,that caused by the derailing of a car
at the Fourth street switch, which de
layed' traffic for half an hour.. This
1 iray have been ' done accidentally 'or
'purposely by the strikers. •' •'■"■'",'"■ "■
that they have thirty, men
■ out and can tie up 'the road If they so
; desire. ' The company officials say nine
men are out at Los Angeles, three and
' San Pedro and six at Las Vegas.
. i'lt 'was planned by' the strikers yes
terday, to get their fellow switchmen
on other roads to handle Salt Lake
' freight as ■ quickly as possible and
: cause • a congestion of freight in the
Losy Angeles yards, so that the road
would 1 not 1 be able to handle It. ' •
'."The union* held a meeting at Fire
men's hall last night to. talk over plans
for a settlement of, the strike.

ON GOOD ROADS
NATIONAL SECRETARY GIVES
DISCUSSES OILED HIGHWAYS
County Commission Suspends Business
Besslon to Hear Interesting and
Instructive Address by Col.
R. W. Richardson
The regular monthly meeting of the
County Highway commission was held
yesterday morning at the courthouse.
After the opening preliminaries fur
ther business was suspended to allow
Col. R. W. Richardson of Omaha, sec
retary of the National ' Good Roads as
sociation, to address the commission
ers. He was much Interested In the
line of work this commission is doing
and said that "while your work is to
a certain extent ethical, you are com
bining the useful and practical and as
similating it , with the natural beauties
of" this country.''' ' ;
Also, that ''it Is the very essence of
public splrlt"for you gentlemen to stop
in the midst' of business activity to
take time to discuss so commonplace
a thing as the country roads. It Is the
most patriotic thing one could do and
one that would bring lasting good to
the country at large. : ' Vl''V I ''
"The matter pf roads and their care
and improvement is one of the greatest
Importance to us, and yet one that re
ceives. the greatest indifference." The
reason for this, I think, is the fact that
II is used so freely by all that it Is a
matter of little concern to us. . *; ,
| t "While roads ,and road .-,]wprk- are
commonplace matters, few of us- ever
stop to think of. them. It is true that
our highways are essentially the most
democratic thing we possees. They are
the very basis of individual, commer
cial and social Independence and the
man, no matter how busy he is, who
stops long enough to consider the mat
ter will not be lone In becoming a good
roads enthusiast." •'
In speaking further of the great
transforming power of good roads In a
community. where bad roads have' been,
he> cited, the change that has 'been
wrought in Southern Alabama, around
Jackson, where 'the whole j country Is
clay and soft soil, washed down by the
river. He said : ■ •
"In this section, in the worst seasons
of the year, owing to the bad condi
tions of the roads, business came to a
standstill, for not enough cotton could
be hauled to keep the mills busy. It
being scarcely possible t0 .,; haul, .two
bales of cotton' at a time. The National
Good ffoads.'assbciat'ion iwetit into this
section,. and brought 'material down
from Illinois to build 1500 yards or so
of good road as an object lesson. This
was built near the town, where ■ the
traffic congested from the branch
roads. :-.-«.: ; ■;. ■■> "-; ■::;:-,,■: ■-■■■
"This road ; went through the worst
season air right and following that, the
people came together by common con
sent and obtained a special .ict to bond
the county, raised the money, shipped
material. from Illinois,' built more good
roads and now It Is a common sight
to see loads of fifteen or sixteen bales
of cotton on a broadtired wagon go in
to market in the worst season."
Mr. Richardson Is interested greatly
In California's oiled . roads, but gave
his opinion that the oiling of some of
the roads, in the way some of them are
oiled, Is a useless outlay of money.
"Because," he said, . i n
