On the Wage Question Outlined In a
Pamphlet Issued In New
York Today
Herald Special
New York Feb 25 Representa
tives of the eastern railroads issued
today a pamphlet which gives the
railrpads side of the wage question
The reason for this is the recent ac
tion of the trainmen and conductors
in demanding higher pay and shorter
hours The principal subjects dis
cussed in the pamphlet are the de
crease in freight and passenger rates
the increase in the cost of operation
and the wages of railroad employes
as compared with the wages paid in
other industries
The position of the railroad is that
in the face of a steady decline in
rates and a steady v advance in the
cost of operation they are not able
to grant general wage increases in
addition to those already made There
were general increases in the latter
part of 190G and the early part of
1907 and there was no subsequent de
crease in the wage rate on railroads
as there was in other industries at
the time of the 1907 panic
A statement by Martin A Knapp
chairman of the Interstate Commerce
Commissions in the Annals of the
American Academy of Political and
Social Science July 1908 is quoted
Mr Knapp said Partly because of
the strength of railway labor organi
zation which for the most part has
been prudently managed by astute
and able leaders the general scale
of wages in railway service has been
materially higher than in correspond
ing private pursuits I congratulate
our railway friends and the country
at large that means have been de
Tised for carrying this great industry
over this critical period without at
tempting a reduction in wages of rail
way employes
While freight rates have declined
year by year the price of everything
a railroad buys has gone up Thus
the railroads have not contributed to
the rise in prices but have suffered
seriously from it Fuel is one ex
ample of how expenses have increas
ed While the freight traffic increased
148 per cent between 1897 and 1907
on all the railroads in the United
States and the passenger traffic in
creased 12G per cent the cost of fuel
for locomotives increased 207 per cent
Rails lumber pipe cement glass
all structural materials show similar
The price of labor has moved up
Avard along with all other prices pe
riodical advances in wages having
been made by the railroads The
average yearly earnings of railroai
employes including laborers accord
ing to the latest report issued by the
Interstate Commerce Commission
amounts to C41 The average yearly
earnings of trainmen including en
ginemen firemen and conductors on
tfilT easter railroads according to the
same report are 90S Skilled work
ingmen in other industries according
to the report of the Massachusetts
State Labor Bureau earned the fol
lowing amounts in 1907

Visit of Ruler of Bulgaria to Czarof
Russia Revives Interest In the
Near Eastern Question
fHerald Specal
Vienna Feb 2G A slight revival of
interest in the Near Eastern question
has been occasioned this week by the
visit of Czar Ferdinand of Bulgaria to
Czar Nicholas of Russia Political
rumors are always rife when poten
tates travel though as a matter of
fact but little importance should h j
attachesd to their visits for history
shows that international relations are
never seriously affected by these of
ficial courtesies
Of all the soverigns of Europe the
journeyings of the Bulgarian ruler
certainly should attract the least at
tention for he is nearly always on
the go Though comparatively young
in years today by the bye is his
fortyninth birthday Ferdinand has
probably traveled more extensively
than any other European rulerrSome
thirty years ago he visited the United
States and later made a voyage of
exploration into the unknown regions
of South America During the first
few years that followed his election
as prince of Bulgaria his frequent
journeys to the capital of Europe in
volved such expense and kept rhim
away from Sofia so much that for a
time his popularity among his own
people suffered
It Is but natural that on his present
tour of the courts of Europe theflrst
he has made since Bulgaria succeeded
in throwing off the suzerainty of the
Porte Ferdinand should elect to makei
the Russia court his first objective
