Their Counsel Argues That •• Arbitrar

One ~~oi the 'Issues
Before United States District Judge
"William C.; Van Fle^t yesterday Her
man G. "Walker, counsel . for the Order
of Railroad Telegraphers, and A. A.
Moore, counsel for the Southern; Pacific
company, made their arguments. on the
contention of the telegraphers that the
recent board of arbitration had illegally
changed one^of the issues presented to
it. This \ was the fourth issue and
read as follows:
"Question of ; elmlnation fromopera
tion of schedule > certain important
agencies .where the duties of soliciting
traffic are-; paramount." '
The board, consisting of ; Emory "R.
Johnson, H. B. Perham and R. A; Ing
ham, .Perham dissenting, changed; the
issue In the following words: "It\ Is I
manifest to the 2 board that the '" real ]
question is, 'what stations 'shall; be
starred 1 , to : supersede theZ schedule -of i
1902.%" They ignored the" proposition!
as to the splicltfng of traffic and starred
or ' eliminated all stations where ; telef
graphing- was only. a' small' part of the ]
agent's duty.
Walker took the broad "ground! that
an issue-presented; for arbitration could
not "be changed .except byconsent of
both parties. <:'l, , . *

ments; written „ out 'and \u25a0 took .the .; mat
