Heads of Organizations Lunch With the President Enormous Labor Interests Involved Trainmen Greatly Disturbed Over the Mer ger and Predict General Shading of Wages Unless It Is Prevented. (Special Correspondence.) WASHINGTON. Jan. 11. The northwestern railway merger may have a deep and vital significance for organized labor. Monopoly is almost always inimical to labor. Reduce the number of employers in any impor tant line of business, and wages and tenure of service are' directly affected The Northern Securities company is. for the labor world, a monopoly, and 'it is evident that the locomotive en gneers, firemen, conductors, switch men, telegraphers and trainmen gen erally have nothing to gain as the result of its continuance. The heads of the great rail way labor organization launched by appointment with the Presi dent yesterday, and the confer ence which followed lasted until after 3 o'clock. The Attorney General of the United States was present, and ! the Secretary of Agriculture. The conference may be very important, i Should government supervision be-! come the policy of the Roosevelt ad-, ministration; should the president! continue to advocate increased power1 for the inter-state commerce commis sion, which Is one form of sovern- irent supervision; yesterday's lunch' j and conference will be looked back . axp muimuS IUC Ul-Slliuiug Ul CU operation .between the administration and organized labor in order to bring these things about. ' Those who say they know the pur- nose cf yesterday's conference claim! that the President, who for weeks has ueen studying the northwestern rail- way erser from the view point of the statutes said to be involved, the probable effect of the merger on rates, and the discriminations which it may make possible, at last reached the position where he wanted to study it from the view point of the enormous labor interests which are involved. He wanted to know whether the mer ger, in the opinion of the heads of the great railway brotherhoods, was to be regarded as a menace to labor ' Back of the conference is the fact, now well established, that the train men and employes generally of the Northern Pacific railway are greatly disturbed over the merger, and pre dict that unless it can be prevented, there will be a general shading bf wages, to correspond with existing "" wm practices or tne Ureat Trtf hnrn T7tlw SUPffl hI Z TLVJZ "fflEata.bXisb.ed XXX 185B. ...w u..u.u. tc-ir.o luat l"c v,u,e 1!
