Chief of the '"Big Five" railroad transportation or ganizations convened here to-day for their first conference since authorizing the nation-wide railroad strike in Chi rajii last Saturday. il van announced that general plana fur conducting the strike would be dis russcd, but whether any question of w ul-taniling importance has presented . ilelf wjis not stated. It is expected that tin! proposal of the public group of the railroad labor board to pass the July iji reduction on down to the puhiic through reduced raf will re ceive only panning consideration by the bailers, a most til' them have indicated tlicy considered the plan of little value. Prior to conference President Lo; of the trainmen issued a statement in which he averted that "the Brother hood of Railroad Trainmen very re luctantly takes the position that it not longer agree to give service un- l-.'i, there is surance that there will lie no further wie reductions, nor at tempt to eliminate wo-Jting rules that have been mr-ured thrt.ngh many year? .f collective bargaining and which rep trsent only fair remuneration for extra eenice given:" After discussing the wages of train men in which he made comparison of ages paid in 1913 with those received now, Mr. Lee"1 mud: "Tbe men have .been asked to accept vit is an inade- t,ute living wase. Tbey know the railway are taking unfair advantage of business depression to force them to accept unfair wairea and service condi tions. To state the matter briefly tbey , believe that the companies are going to continue their aggreasire warfare against them until tbey force the men to strike. Therefore, they must re- , luctantly deride to accept tbe cba lence bow." Mr. Lee's statement in part follows: "The wages of train and yard servus employes were fixed in 1P13 and were r t changed, except in a Terr few mi wr instance, onril Jan. 1, 1918.

Ibis is a typical wage earned by an employe who class transports more than 90 per cent of the freight business of this country. This employe received in the eastern division 2.tiJ tor nis normal day'g work of 100 miles within ten hours, or $80.10 for a 30-day month. With the increase of Jan. 1, 1918, he received approximately $1.04 addition al, which made his daily rates 13.71 and his monthly wage for a 30-day month $111.30. Supplement number Id effective Jan. 1, 1919, brought his daily rate to $4.08 and his monthly wage for a r50-day month $122.40, and the de: cision of t lie L nited Mates railroad ia bor board effective May 1, 1920, brought the daily rate of the through freight brakeman running into New York to $5.12, which multiplied by 30 days for the month, gave him s month ly wage of $153.00. The wage decrease effective July 1, 1921, reduced the monthly rate to $134 for 30 days' serv ice on which amount he is expected 1o maintain himself and family decently and reasonably and he cannot do it as every one who is trying to maintain an American standard of living under stands.
