Award Gives Them Twenty
Per Cent More Wages, but
Xot an Eight-Hour Day
'The decision of the board of arbi
tretion Is practically complete: it only
remains to formulate the terms of the
This Ftatement was made by Judge
Bfatty yesterday afternoon at j the
clop* of the session of the board,
which is to render the award in the
arbitration of the differences between
the United Railroads and its employes.
Father Yorke was under the im
pression that the question of the
wages and hours of the carmen was
s-tHI open for discussion at today's
meeting of the board.
"If the Chief Justice says it 1b de
rided, I suppose that settles it." he
said. He returned to Oakland to be
gin the preparation of a dissenting
opinion, which, it is understood, will
be a-stronga -strong statement oN.what the
minority arbitrator considers the jus
tice of the carmen's claims.
The terms of the decision as it will
be signed hy Major Frank McLaugh
lin. the arbitrator for the company.
and Chief Justice Beatty. virtually
award to the construction workers and
electricians all that they asked. They
«re granted an eight-hour day and a
substantial increase in wages, while
the carmen, whose case had been con-
Fidered the strongest, must continue
on the ten-hour schedule and will re
ceive an increase of only 20 per cent.
When Richard Cornelius, the presi
dent of the Carmen's Union, was in
formed what the terms of the award
v.ere to be he expressed great dis
"This is a'death blow to arbitration."
he exclaimed, adding that he was
greatly surprised that the board should
have granted the demands of the other
workers and refused to give the car
men an eight-hour day.
As the decision now stands, it gives
the linemen an increase from $3.50 to
$4 a day and reduces their hours from
ten to eight. The trackworkers or
laborers employed in construction work
receive an increase from %t to $2.50 and
also get an eight-hour day. The sta
tionary firemen's demands are granted
in full. Save a few instances, the
award of the eight-hour day is to be
granted to all but the carmen.
While their wages are increased, the
carmen get much less >than they had
nought. Formerly they had been paid
25". :.'6'i and 27 cents an hour. They
will receive hereafter, unless a change
be made today, 50, 32 and 33 cents an
hour, according to the number of years
they have served in the company's em
ploy. The recent increase in the wages
paid by the Oakland Traction Company
gave the carmen on the other side of
the bay. where there are no hills and no
congestion of traffic, from 30 to 40 cents
an hour.
•"This will mean that Oakland will
Sret the best motormen and conductors,"
ts the opinion expressed by Cornelius.
"It will have the pick of the men. Good
men are not going to work here, where
the conditions are harder, when they
can get more in Oakland, where the
work is more pleasant."
Albert Johnson, the attorney for the
carmen? refused to discuss the award
until its terms were made public by the
"It is a remarkable decision," he said.
It is known that before Saturday
Chief Justice Beatty had not been will
ing to consider a greater 'increase than
10 per cent for the -carmen. At that
Urn* the arbitrator for the railroad
gave way from his original position
;tnd on the same morning Tirey Ford is
reported to have said to some of his
friends that the award would grant
the carmen an increase of 20 per cent,
hut that there^would be no change in
the hours of the/ working day.
The argument advanced by Beatty in
refusing to agree to the lesser number
of hours is said to have been that it
would Involve great cost to the com
"What the men ask would mean an
outlay of $400,000 a year by the com
pany, or, in other words, it would be
equivalent to the necessity of setting
aclde a fund of $8,000,000." he is re
ported to have urged during the course
of the arbitration. It is evident that
to the mind of the jurist the property
rights involved were, a stronger, con
sideration than the personal rights of
the workmen.
Father Yorke. In his dissenting opin
ion, will take the ground that motor
men and conductors as a class are un
derpaid throughout the country,, and
that they are suffering from the \ evil
inheritance of the days when street
<-ars were operated by horsepower and
driver* were obtainable at a niggardly
wage for sixteen hours' work.'
During the taking of testimony it
had been repeatedly urged by the at
torney for the railroads that the,ques
tion of the , company's ability to pay
the increase demanded was not before
the court, and on its side the company
bad refrained from introducing any
testimony on this point. This, silence,
under the ordinary rules of evidence,
\u25a0would have been construed as an ad
mission, but it appears that the ques
tion of the expense Involved, weighed
most strongly with the umpiring ar
bitrator, who had the deciding vote.
The question of the greater cost of
living "was passed over In the conclud
ing argument of the= attorney for the
carmen. It wm believed that It would
not. have great weight, as the com
pany could not- be held responsible for
prevailing high prices. Greater stress
was laid - upon the- harder, conditions
under which the men had : been obliged
to' work since the fire. It is under
stood, however, that in granting the
increas" In wages the Chief Justice ex
pressed himself as having been in
fluenced; by the greater cost of living
rather, than by the harder' conditions
of labor.. which, he held,. were inappre
ciable and temporary.
The decision would have been signed
yesterday had It not been . for the fact
that th« lncre.ase^ln Ihe "wages paid
by the Oakland Company, as
it was alluded to in yesterday's Call,
was brought before the -board, and an
argument upon it was made, which. It
was hoped, would, be' of % avall. " .Th-3
board "was in session untll*a. late hour
in } the afternoon, and many interlinea
tions' were made* in the text of the
majority decision without appreciabl *
changing' the result.
The new conditions established by
the award'will be in,effect only, a little
more than two. months/. On May 1 the

San Rafael Almost Has
New Sensation in Feud of
the Cochranes and Taylor
San Rafael almost had a new sensa-
Mon in connection with the Cochrane-
Taylor feud yesterday during the in
vestigation by the Grand Jury of the
charge of jury bribery in , the Keefe
case. The inquisitors had been in ses
sion about an hour;when they heard a
noise between the ceiliii&'of their room
and the roof. ,- It must Kave been made
by an eavesdropper who had made his
way up the ladder in an adjoining
room to the trap door leading, to the
rat and bat inhabited silences of the
spider-wehbed attic. \u25a0- -
Foreman Fred P. Howard, led the
deliberating host and scaled the lad
der, closely followefl by W. T. Price,
who boasts the title of "the Kicker
of Mill, Valley." He in turn was fol
lowed by George Ring. The trap
door had been unlocked.; That, looked
bad, so Constable George M. Agnew
was sent for.
Then the door was opened and Fore
man Howard .raised his head into the
dark and echoing emptiness. Slowly
he made his way Into the forbidding
attic, and with equal*" cautiousness
other jurors followed. A bat fluttered
against .the roof-rarters. but not a
juryman moved a muscle.
Carefully but firmly, as men with a
duty to perform, they stepped upon
the single board which permitted
reconnoitering over the lath and
plaster to the farthest reaches of the
attic. A complication ensued when
Juryman Hazelton attempted to make
his way through the trap door. He was
too large and had to leave the heroics
to smaller men.
But the investigation proved about
as fruitless as the Inquiry into the al
leged $5000 bribe giving. There, was 'no
one to be found. All the newspaper
men were rounded up,. but they estab
lished satisfactory alibis, and the cause
of the noise must go down :, in San
Rafael history as* auother mystery too
deep to penetrate.
Father Byrne who, it was stated, would
come from Napa to corroborate the
statement of Father Egan. failed to at
tend. He pleaded, by telephone a pre
vious engagement, and as he lived
more than thirty miles from the meet
ing place of the Grand Jury, he could
not be legally forced to come. Instead
he is said to have told "over' the wire
what he knew of the matter.
In this connection :Father- Byrne is
quoted as having said that, shortly
after the conversation between C. IT.
Beardsley and Father Egan, the latter"
told him about it. This conversation
was substantially the same as the story
that Father Egan gave to the Grand
Jury, to the effect that Beardsley had
told the witness of giving $5000 to.Pat
Cochrane to be used by Attorney James
W. Cochrane In bribing the. jury in the
Keefe. perjury trial. This was the con
versation that Beardsley -denies ever
having had with P'ather Egan.
Dr. Wickman was another witness
summon ed " to ; testify.: to hearing, Father
Egan say," four years ago, that Beards
ley had told him of a bribe fund
handled by ""Jim'V Cochrane. H. -H.
Lynch, d newspaper man, was on hand
to testlf y . as .to how Taylor's scath
ing letter had come Into print in San
Francisco. Taylor declares that the
letter In "which he made the bribery
charge was addressed to M. F. Coch
rane and was secured for "publication
without his knowledge and -printed
despite his emphatic protest. : \u25a0 .%v.:
Lynch is also said to have- testi
fied before the Jury .\u25a0 yesterday that
"Jim" Cochrane admitted. In his pres
ence the receipt of $5000 as his fee In
the Keefe case, but declared that it
was a legitimate charge for legal
The Taylor-Cochrane feud now. rests
with the jury, and will probably expire
easily. Beardsley -will not be .Indicted
because his innocence of wrongdoing
is apparent to the jury. A misunder
standing between Beardsley and
Father Egan as to what, he had said
is believed to have been the cause
of the latter's statement which led to
Sheriff's Taylor's charges. : The Coch
ranes cannot, be Indicted even if there
were sufficient evidence, of bribe
giving,- which there is; not; because'lof
the statute of limitation. Sheriff Tay
lor' cannot be indicted because hejs not
involved except In so far as \u25a0he re
peated ;the story 'of bribery as told by
Father Egan.'

Thursday at 11:30 a. m., when it is
expected that a large delegation will
be present to protest against the grant
ing of the permit.
The ordinance providing $273 for
