Packages of four, 10c Callaway's FURNITURE FUNERAL DIRECTORS QUICK RAIL WAGE DECISION EXPECTED Hines and Wilson Confer After For mer Meets Brotherhood Members. Washington, August 20. Early action to settle unrest in the ranks of the railroad employes who have been determining new wage increases was forecast today. After a lengthy conference with the representatives of the six shop crafts, Director General Hines went to the White House to discuss with President Wilson the problems fac ing the railroad administration. While no arrangements was made, it was understood that the entire question was received, including the obvious necessity for an increase in rates or another congressional appro priation to provide funds for any wage advances that may be made. Since the administration has been in curring a deficit every month this year due to the falling off in business and the high cost of labor and ma terials. Mr. Hines promised the shopmen leaders that he would give careful consideration to all the facts presented and would endeavor to reach a final decision in the near future, indicating that he will order into effect any change in the wage scale without re ferring the demands to a board for investigation. The shopmen's de mands were presented in the spring to the board of railway wages and work ing conditions, which took extensive testimony and then divided evenly for and against a raise. Delays in acting on the demands eventually resulted in the recent unauthorized strikes in many sections of the country. A SNAP For sale two vacant lots on a cor ner in Prospect Park addition.
