Washington. D. C. May S. While the Pennsylvania railroad is not looking for trouble with any of its- thousands of employes, it is always ready for whatever may develop, according to the testimony of W. W. Atterbury, vice president of the system, answering charges of unfairness before the fed eral commission on industrial rela tions. "We would welcome closer relations with our employes," said Mr. Atter bury. "if it could be brought about under proper auspices. We would more than welcome an organization of all Pennsylvania railroad employes anions themselves without entangling outside alliances. Such an organization would be good for the railroad and anything that is good for the railroad is good for the employes." The objection of the Pennsylvania to the Order of Railroad Telegraphers, which made the complaint against the company to the commission, the wit ness said, was that it would make the men responsible to the president of the union and not to the proper officials of the railroad company. Mr. Atterbury championed mediation as the best means of settling labor dis putes and said that he would welcome a federal workmen's compensation law for interstate commerce employes, modeled after some of the state com pensation laws. Ijettvei Organization To Kmployes. "In dealing with organizations f among its employes, tne company has felt that the employes themselves were the best judges of the forme of organisation in which they desired ts go." be added. "Therefore there has been no interference in the employes liberty of choice in this matter. The foregoing statement, however, must be qualified in these respects: "The company owes a supreme duty to its patrons and employes to take all possible measures to insure safety of operation. Such safety cannot be se cured without the most careful adher ence to orders. The management, therefore, felt that It should resist firmly all activities of employes' organ izations which might tend, in the least, to undermine discipline. "The management Is also responsible to the public for maintaining the con tinuity of operations. This has made necessary a policy of opposition to such labor organizations as might interrupt that continuity because of disputes with wblch neltner tnis comnanv nor -is em ployes had any direct relation. The I company is therefore opposed to em- ! ployes affiliating themselves with an ! organization which might call a sym- i pathetic strike. If there is to ne any J strike on this railroad, tne management believes that it should be the result of the choice of its employe, and no other reason." Company In Always 1'rrpared. "Is your company always In a state of preparedness for any Industrial war fare that might spring up?" asked Xr. Walsh, "such as having men and arms and clubs on hand?" "We are always prepared for any thing the other fellow Is getting ready for. I can assure you." Mr. Atterbury replied. "How many rifles do you keep on hand?" "I don't know that we have any. but we have everything that is legal that is necessarv to keep on hand to protect the running of our trains." "Shouldn't the control or armed forces, in vour opinion, rest with the stater Mr. Walsh asked. "Theoretically yes. bat practically I doubt if you can eifer arrive at that solution. If the state would properly patrol our property we would be glad to have It do so." Gives KmployrV Side. At the resumption today of the com mission's inquiry, W. H. Pierce, an or ganizer of the Brotherhood of Feder ated Railroad Kmployes. resumed his testimony concerning the Pennsylvania shopmen's strike at Harrisburg last year. Pierce, questioned by commissioner Weinstock. insisted that the Pennsyl vania discharged in wholesale lots of men who joined the shopmen's union. Pierce attacked W. G. Lee, president of the Brotherhood of Railway Train men, for his part in the H14 shopmen's strike. FORMER SENATOR AND FRIEND, "SPIES," RELEASED vicuna. AuatiM, !
