fic. provide proper control and pro
duce practical efficiency.
Rules That Prove Costly.
The rules themselves were present
ed ns allowing unnecessary costs 'hat
militate against rate reductions. For
example, under one rule covering con
tinuous and called service, there was
cited an award to a machinist for
10% hour« pay for work performed
during a spread of eight hours. Such
eases, it. was pointed ont, were numer
set out for
Under another rule, covering emer
gency road service, in one case a com
pany was isimpelled to pay four men
a total of 112 hours, at 67 cents an
hour each, or $75.04, for work which j
would have occupied one man 18 hours'
and 12 minutes, which at 67 cents an
vould have amounted to $12.20
a difference of $62.84.
One car repairer was paid $1000 j
one of those rules for service |
never performed and the same amounlt
of overtime was pai dhis force.
With a storm in sight, an engineer
insisted on repairs being made to a
window light in his cab. Under
another rule, it exist five hours for
what could have beeu done in 30 tuin
utes besides the train was delayed
an hour and a half. This was due to
the restrictions as to who should per
form that particular work.
An Expensive Leak.
A leak in a boiler, a trivial mat
ton - , under one rule called out three
skilled men and three helpers where
as It is claimed one man and helper
could do the work in the same time.
The mere matter of adustijig a head
light called similar large service into
play under this rule.
Many hundreds of such cases were
cited in detail.
There are 182 of these rules, as re
[»orted by Idaho shippers who have
gone over them.
The enforcement of these rules has
not only resulted in inefficient service
to the public, as claimed, but is
known to have cost heavily.
For work not performed at all it
was brought out at the Chicago hear
ing the railroads paid $6,500,000 in
six months tinder the punitive payment
The interest of shippers, as stated,
is to aid In securing such equitable'
changes as will affect rates downward.
