"Beln' polite to some men," said Un cle Ebon, "don't do no more dan In courage In thlnkla' you is easy pooled," Cheap Transportation Has Built National Prosperity TMs Is a blp American freight engine. It is an achievement of AMERICAN INVENTIVE GENIUS. It is built to HAUL LONG TRAINS loaded with the products of Amer ican industry from the mines, farms, mills and factories to the markets of the country, and to the seaboard for shipment across the seas. In all the wonderful history of American industrial progress NO PIECE OP MACHINERY HAS PERFORMED SUCH SERVICE AS THE BIG FREIGHT LOCOMOTIVE. Freight is carried on our railroads at the LOWEST RATE? IN THE WORLD, while we pay our railroad workers the HIGHEST WAGES IN THE WORLD, A TON OF FREIGHT IN THE EAST IS C ARMED THREE MILES FOR THE COST OF A TWO-CENT POSTAGE STAMP. Cheap transportation is one of the "biggest builders of our prosperity. The big freight engine with its enormous tractive power, the big steel freight car with its great carrying capacity, and the heavy rails and rock-ballasted roadbed to support the weight of the great engines and heavy trainj these are the achievements of American industrial genius which hsrre given us low freight rates and broad markets, and have enabled ns to put our products in the markets of the world in competition with foreign manufacturers. But now come well-meaning but short-sighted leaders of American railroad workers who say to the railroad managers: "SHORTEN YOUR FREIGHT TRAINS so that the enginemen and trainmen can haul the tonnage faster over the roads, and so make as many miles pay in eight hours as they now do in ten hours." To the State Legislatures these same spokesmen for the railroad work ers say: "Pass laws LIMITING THE LENGTH OF FREIGHT TRAINS we oppose big tonnage trains." To the Farmers, Manufacturers, and Merchants they say: "With shorter freight trains railroads can move your products faster to the markets." To the American Public that pays every dollar of the railroad bill (and 44 cents of every dollar paid for transportation is for wages), they say: "All that the railroads have to do to meet our demands for higher wages is to shorten their trains, move the freight more rapidly and escape the nenaltv of overtime waires." What would be the result of taking these leaders of the 350,000 train employes at their word shorten freight trains so that they can be run at higher speed? Increasing the number of trains to handle the same tonnage would eall for more employes to do the same work, more tracks, larger yards and terminals, jdore supervision, and it is plain that there wonld be more con gestion of traffic and greater hazards in train operation. Hundreds of mil lions a year would have to he spent by the railroads to increase their facili ties and to operate the bigger plant. IT WOULD BE AKIN TO USING HAND SHOVELS INSTEAD OF FIVE-TON STEAM DREDGES TO DIG A PANAMA CANAL. American railroads have spent enormous amounts in reducing grades, cutting down mountains and filling up valleys; in increasing the hauling power of locomotives and the carrying capacity of cars; in putting down rock ballast and heavy rails all for one purpose, to lower the cost of operation. It is the publio that has reaped the benefit in better and cheaper railroad service. If the railroads moved their tonnage in shorter trains at higher speeds, the public, it is seen, would have to shoulder a great burden in the in creased cost of transportation. Would the public get value received for its money! Of the tonnage on the roads east of Chicago 60 per eent. consists ot coal, coke, ores, stone and other mine products. To the publio it is of no consequence whether this freight is a few hours longer on the road, so long as there is a continuous and regular stream of it coming to the markets. FOUR-FIFTHS OF ALL THE TONNAGE MOVING IN THE EAST IS MADE UP OF LOW GRADE, SLOW MOVING FREIGHT, CARRIED AT THE LOWEST RATES IN THE WORLD. To abandon the big freight trains on American railroads in order to increase the speed at which the bulk of the traffic moves, and thereby enable the train employes to earn higher wages in shorter hours, would place a great burden on American industry without giving the publio any tangible benefit. LONG HOURS A RARITY. Only Once In Five Years Does Average Trainman Exceed Legal Limit That long hours lu train service have been reduced to a mlntmum Is shown by a report issued by tbe Interstate Commerce Commission. Only ono em ploye In fivo on the average last year was compelled to remain on duty moro than sixteen hours during any one day In tho wholo year. Stated In another way, tho chance of an cnglneman or trainman remaining on duty beyond this prescribed limit was reduced to bnco In flvo years. Tbo total number of cases of excess servlco from all causes reported to tho commission was only 01,517 during tho year ending Juno 30, 1015, ns com pared with 137,430 in 1014 and 270.S27 In 1013, and with raro exceptions thoso represented cases recognized as due to unavoidable causes. Statistics on thla subject nro collected by tho Interstate Commcrco Commis sion undor tho national hours-of-servlco law. Every tlmo a train is so de layed by n blizzard, washout or oth er cause that any part of tho train crew Is on duty longer than sixteen hours the railroad company must re port tho occurrenco to the commission, giving tbo names of tbo individual em ployes concerned and a full statement of the cause for tbo excess service. For several years the tallroads nnd tbe Interstate Commerce Commission have been co-operating In efforts to prevent tbe keeping of employes on duty for long periods. The reduction of nearly 80 per cent In such cases which has been brought about In three years shows that tbe working of men for long stretches of continuous service has practically disappeared except In tare cases of unavoidable delay. RAILWAY MAIL PAY. Congress Directs Interstate Commerce Commission to Investigate Subject. Washington. Tbo annual Tost Of fice appropriation bill recently passed by Congress contains a clauso directing the Interstate Commcrco Commission to take up for Investigation, report and the fixing of rates the system of pay ment to the railroads for carrying mall. The Commission Is authorized to test the relative merits of payment by weight anil by space. Tbo railroads bavo long contended that they were underpaid for this serv lco and that they wcro losing millions of dollars a year undor the system of paymont now In effect It wus felt that the Interstate Commerce Com mission, on oecouut of tbe Information at Its command regurdlug all phases of railroad oporatlon, Is ln'tlio best po sition to detennluo the merits of the case. GOVERNMENT SHOULD REGULATE WAGES. If a set of conditions bavo arisen which oblige tho govern ment to regulate rates, then It Is equally obliged, on tbe basis of economic analysis, to regulate wages accordingly. Ilavlug tak en ono step, It must take tbo other. Tbo logic of events Is forcing thU dilemma on tho gov ernment It is tho public which sooner or later must pay for the increased expenses of transport i tatlon. Professor J. Laurence . Laugblln, Jafctrslty e Chicago.
