Ask Congress to Direct U, S
Inquiry into R. R. Wages.
Members of United States Chamber of
Commerce Vote Overwhelmingly In
Favor of Letting Interstate Commerce
Commission Adjust Controversy.
Washington. In order to ascertain
tho position of tho business meu of
tho nation on tho controversy between
tho railroads of tho country and tho
unions of train servleo employes, which
was proclpltnted by tho demnntl of tho
latter for nn Increase In wnpos that
would nmount to 5100,000,000 a year,
tho United States Chamber of Com
merce recently submitted tho mat
ter to a voto of nil Its members. They
wcro asked to express their opinion as
to whether tho dispute should be al
lowed to tako its courso with tho pos
sibility of a great strlUo that would
tlo up all the transportation lines
throughout the country and paralyzo
all business, or whether they would
favor tho adoption to a joint resolu
tion by tho two branches of congress
directing tho Interstate Commerce
Commission to investigate and pass
upon the matter.
The voto received was a very largo
ono and represented business organ
izations In every part of the coun
try. Tho result was overwhelmingly
In favor of placing tho matter In tho
hands of tho Interstato Commerce
Commission, 034 votes being cast in
favor of this course and only 2SU
against it Tho result showed cleftrly
that tho business Interests of tho
country are unalterably against per
mitting the transportation lines to be
tied up by a national railroad strike
that would paralyzo the commerce of
the country and Inflict enormous losses
on nil classes of citizens.
Chairman Wheeler of the Commit
tee in charge of tho matter for
the Chamber of Commerce appear
ed before tho representatives of tho
railroads and their employes at their
conference in New York In June. IIo
announced the result of tho Com
mittee's Inquiry among the business
men of tho country pnd urged both
parties to tho dispute to get together
and adopt the courso suggested. As a
result tho commltteo of managers rep
resenting tho railroads submitted a
proposal that tho wholo subject bo
placed before tho Interstate Commcrco
Commission as requested by the repre
sentatives of tho business Interests.
As an alternative they offered to sub
mit the demands to arbitration under
tho Federal law. Both offers wero
refused by the union leaders, who an
nounced that they would go back to
their unions and get authority to de
clare a strike. This they have since
been doing.
Meanwhile a resolution has been In
troduced In Congress directing tho In
terstato Commcrco Commission to
mako an Investigation of railroad
wages. This resolution is now await
ing action. It is believed hero that it
nothing further Is dono by Congress or
by tho parties to tho wage dlsputo to
bring about n peaceful settlement tho
business interests of the country,
through tho United States Chamber
of Commerce, or somo other organiza
tion, will appeal to tho Government
to take some direct and decislvo action
to prevent tho destruction of national
prosperity by a strlko on nil tho rail
road lines.
Wage Increase of $100,000,000 a Year
Would Have to Be. Borne by Public.
The train scrvico employes of all
railroad lines In tho United States have
united In a demand for n now basis of
pay for all men engaged In operating
trains, except thoso in passenger serv
ice. At tho present timo they aro paid
on -tho basis of ten hours of timo or
100, miles of distance, whichever gives
them tho higher pay; and every man
receives a full day's pay, no matter
how short a time bo works.
Tho trainmen now demand that, In
all but passenger service, (1) tho pres
ent ton hours pay shall bo given for
eight hours, or less, with a guaranteo
of a full day's pay, no matter how lit
tle scrvico is performed; (2) ovcrtlmo
to bogtn after eight hours, instead of
after ten hours, and to bo paid for at
ono and ono-half times tho 'hourly rate.
Thoso demands would increaso tho
hourly rate of pay 23 per cent, and tho
ovcrtlmo rato 87 per conr.
They also insist that nil special extra
pay provisions In tho 10-hour schedules
shall bo Included in tho proposed
8-hour schedule.
Thoso special rules frequently glvo
doublo pay for tho same service, and
enable, tho employes to earn two and
three days' pay lq a slnglo day of
ordinary working hours.
As tho Increaso for nil the lines Is es
timated to nmount to $100,000,000 a
year the railroads say that they cannot
pay it unless they are allowed to In
creaso freight and passenger rates.
The average wages of tho men en
gaged In train service are already very
much higher than those of other em
ployees and they receive 28 per cent of
the total payroll nltbout h constituting
only 18 per cent of the whole number
of railroad' workers.
Railroad Payroll Records Made
Public by the Carriers,
Managers Offer to Leave Question of
$100,000,000 VVago Demands to an Im
partial Federal Tribunal to Prevent
Disaster of a Nation-wide Strike.
Now York. What Is probably tho
most elnborato study of wages ever
made in any Industry has Just been
completed by- tho National Conference
Commltteo of tho railways.
For six months railway accountants
throughout the country have boon on
gnged lu collecting tho payroll records
to show the actual wngo payments to
every ludlvldual employe among tho
300,000 engineers, conductors, firemen
and brnkemcn now voting on n na
tional strike for a now wage scale.
That theso employes aro ono of the
highest paid groups of workers in any
Industry Is disclosed by tho summary
made public today by tho railroad
Tho nvcrago yearly wago payments
to all Southern train employes (Includ
ing thoso who worked only part of tho
year), ns shown by the 1013 payrolls,
Passenger. Freight, tard.
Engineer tWI 1 1,712 11.313
Conductor 1.73 1.4SS 1.157
Firemen 1.094 SG5 CSS
Brakemen 1.013 ta SGS
Three-quarters of theso men (Includ
ing those who put In a full year's serv
ice), earned these wages:
Engineers (road), $1,453 to $3,083;
(yard). $1,130 to $2,424.
Conductors (road), $1,333 to $2,G0O;
(ynrd), $1,033 to $1,749.
Firemen (road), $040 to $1,032; (yard).
$400 to $1,302.
Brakemcn (road), $755 to $1,834;
(yard), $754 to $1,405.
For tho whole country tho average
wages of three-quarters of the employ
es were:
Pasaenser. Freldht Yard.
Engineers U0C7 Jl.SK I1.6K
Conductors l.SM 1,719 1.310
Firemen 1.20J Mil 921
Brakemen 1,085 1,013 1.076
Tho railroads havo considered every
man whoso name appears on the Janu
ary and December payrolls as an cm
ployo for a year, no matter bow llttlo
service ho performed In tho other ten
months. It Is pointed out by tho man
agers that these averages arc, In con
sequence, an understatement of tho
earning power of theso employes.
An Appeal to the Public.
The National Conference Committee,
In making these wago figures public,
"Do you believe In arbitration or
Industrial warfare?
"The train employes on all the
railroads are voting whether they
will give their leaders authority
to tic up the commerce of tho coun
try to enforce their demands for a
$100,000,000 wago Increase.
"Tho railroads aro In tho public
service your service. This army
of employees Is In tho public service
your service.
"You pay for rail transportation
$3,000,000,000 a year, mid 44 cents
out of every dollar from you goes
to the employes.
"A $100,000,000 wago increase for
men in freight and yard service
floss than one-flfth of all employes)
Is equal to a G per cent advanco in
all freight rates.
'Tho managers of tho railroads,
as trustees for the public, havo no
right to place this burden on the
cost of transportation to you with
out a clear mandato from a public
tribunal speaking for' you.
"Tho railroads havo proposed the
settlement of this controversy either
under tho existing national arbitra
tion law, or by rcfcrcnco to the
Interstato Commerce Commission
This offer has been refused by tho
employes' representatives.
"Shall n nation w'ldo strlko or an
Investigation under the government
determine this Issue?"
When I note from tho reports
mado to tho Interstato Com
merco Commission that thoso
mon rocolvo nvcrago yearly
wages SO per cent higher than
thoso of all other railway em
ployes, and practically doublo
thoso of tho averago American
wage-worker. It occurs to mo
that they at least havo less
cnuso for complaint than most
others. When I consider that
tho averago locomotlvo engineer
has an Income of over $2,000
a year, and that most of the
engineers who havo been long
in service make from $2,000
to $3,000 a year, and when I
compare their hours, labor and
responsibilities with thoso of
tho average small merchant,
farmer or doctor, whose Income
la far less, It seems that In all
fairness they are well palcL
