Eet idoyes to secure any Increase In wages. (|
10,1 This Is a Question which is becoming '
me more prominent as tbo date for the 1
lan meeting of the director* next month
draws near. It Is thought the matter v
"us will be discussed at that meeting, a! "
en' 'hough there Is no Intimation on the e
'a<1' part of nny official which would war- <!
ccit rant the statement that an Increase ?j
"I ?ill lie authorized.
ont Howevr, there Is reason to believe u
the t),at the employes of the Baltimore & ''
an Ohio consider themselves as well, If
ty. not belter, off at the present time an.! J"
use nr.der the present wage scale than
led those men on other roads who have 11
receited Ihcrenses. This feeling of
Ific contenlnipnl Is the direct res.ilt of the ''
an merit system. Installed by President "
aus Oscar 0. Murray. Previous to the In 11
ire- crmbency of Mr. Murray It was I he. '
of cusloni, as It Is to-day on many roads,
tra- to All vacancies in the ranks from out- 1
of aide sources. The result was lltrt '
eat men who hud worked long and faith- ''
sea fuuy |n their positions saw others
brought In to All vacancies ahead of 1
'he them, a situation which minimized an '
a" en-ployc's chances for promotion. Pros "
hat ident Murray changed this ami put the
we men sfltiarely upon their merits. To- ''
wd day when a vacancy occurs promotion a
I"" Is mailt! from the ranks. The faithful !l
t? and conscientious employe has a "
lay chance to demonstrate his worth, and n
U may rest assured that sooner or later "
Ins lip will bo given whatever recognition
a a ho has won. So, while no general In- n
aid ctease In wages has been made since "
ini President Murray took office, tils In- "
stailatlon of the merit system has. it
Is Is safe lo say. rendered the employes
led of the road more satisfied anil conten
tented than any 10 per cent, rulse In
es. wages could do. "

"h its entire system aboal 57,000 men. Of
'll'' this number about 10,500 live in and

"The upward progress of the road h
as since It got out of court has been even o
go- more startling than lis downward ?
march under he younger arrett. The o
ed receivers added nothing to Its mileage, ai
ng which In 1889 was 2,047 miles. To- vi
of day it Is 1,030 miles. The gross earnnd
tags have advanced from $28,400,000

from $7,400,000 to $31,300,000. Operat- n

on $8,S90 000. Several causes have eon- t<
in- trfbnled to this nmaxlng conversion
Ol UC.Qjiiail HIIU UU auiuciit auiiiivitHi
It's One is the expenditure on equipment li!

lio pent extension of mileage. Points cl
is- whore great volumes of freight, can si
he secured, as at Pittsburg, and in It1

been made tributary. But these causes m
1,11 would not have beer, sufficient to raise P<
the ton mileage of the railroad from W
m* 5.137,(ion,000 to 10,714,000,000 units and Is
cn the freight receipts from $20,000,000
to $00,000,000. if it had not been for
the Industrial prosperity of the conn- w
_ tiy. That prosperity makes freight, m
" ami It puts money m me treasury or a ce'
