LAKE SHORE ENGINEER GIVES FIREMAN’S SIDE Sixteen Years Before Assistant Becomes Engine-Driver. NEW YORK, March 11. John W. Locke, formerly a fireman, now an engineer on the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern, resumed the wit ness stand today at the hearings be fore (he board, which is arbitrating the demands of 35,00(1 firemen of Eastern roads. Locke said that counting terminal , delays a fireman's round trip on the. Lake Shore consumed forty-six hours, of which thirty-six hours was spent away from home. During this time away the fireman was obliged to pay for four meals. It took sixteen years, asserted the witness, before a fireman could be come a regular freight engineer on the Lake Shore. "Big engines and in creased tonnage of trains has delayed promotions," he said. Locke was cross-examined by Elisha Lee, chairman of the. railroad managers. It was a hardship, said the witness, to take examinations for an engineer's position. “A fireman is obliged to lay off for from two to four weeks to prepare for the examination," he explained, "and when you pass It may be years before you're promoted." The witness thought firemen should be given leave of absence on pay to take the examination, as “it’s for the protection of the railroad that ex aminations are. given so long before a man is promoted. The road mean time has engineers to call upon whenever It wants them.” Locke admitted that applicants for government positions took civil serv ice examinations at their own ex pense.
