The award of the United States Rail read Labor board enlarging the anmial payroll of the railroads of the coun try approximately $000,000,000 has such a close personal effect that it bc "onies intensely interesting. This sum of money must be produced by the rail reads before it can be turned over to railway employes and the only source of production is in increased freight rates. One railroad official already an nounces that an increase of 18 per cent in freights will be necessary to meet this increased expense. That means that for every dollar now paid for freight there must be paid slightly over .1.0."." in the future. This must be aid by the shipper of merchandise who in turn will charge it the pur chasers of his goods and they pass it on to the ultimate consumers. We are all consumers and therefore will all be affected by the increase. This increased burden of $000,000,000 a year means approximately iff!, a year for every per son in this country. To thi head of a family of five it means an increase in living expenses of $30 per year and for larger families more. With the prospect of this increase falling upon everyone, all of, us begin to consider its justice. One will not question the justice of paying an ef ficient laborer more than he has been receiving but that does not prove the inefficient laborer is entitled to more of our income. Railroad employes are now receiving one billion, six hundred million dollars more per year now than they did when the government took control of the railroads. Not only are the old employes of that period receiv ing more but hundreds ,of thousands more employes are being paid by the railroads. G. B. Hartley of the Penn sylvania railroad says his corporation is employing between 273,000 and 280, 000 more men now than it did when the government assumed control of the roads. This is only one of the great railroad systems of the country but it allows the imagination wide aeope in guessing what the total for all the sys tems is. The Pennsylvania system, "in order to bring about improved efficiency in the operating force and curtail expen ses as far as practical," is making a ten per cent reduction in the number of its employes. It further announces that the efficiency of the employe rather than length of service will determine whether he thall be discharged or re tained. Union labor expresses its oppo sition to this plan and flings to the principle of seniority. There' may be a conflict between the union and the road on this question, but the public that has to pay for all-this labor, un doubtedly will approve of the. efficiency test. That test may not reduce the roads capacity for service but may re duce the expense of such service. The man paying from $6 and upwards per year increased wages to the railroad employes-naturally will champion more efficiency for more money awarded the railroad employes by the federal labor board.
