The train employes on all the railroads are voting whether they will give their leaders authority to tie up the commerce of the country to enforce their demands for a 100 million dollar wage increase. The railroads are in the public service your service. This army of employes is in the public service your service. You pay for rail transportation 3 billion dollars a year, and 44 cents out of every dollar from you goes to the employes. On all the Western railroads fn 1915, icventy-five per cent of the train employes earned these wages (lowest, highest and average of all) as shown by the pay rolls Passenger Freight Yard I Raac. Average Rant; Averse Raas. Average Ener.. Jg $2071 ,137. Conductor, 43 1454 1151 Firemen . 1317 1181 973 Brakemen. 967 113S Jg 1107 h i The average yearly wage payments to all Western train em ployes (including those who worked only part of the year) as shown by the 1915 payrolls were Passenger Freight Yard Engineer $2038 $1737 $1218 Conductor. 1772 1624 1292 Firemen ...... 1218 973 832 Brakemen 921 1000 1026 A 100 million dollar wage increase for men in freight and yard service (less than one-fifth of all employes) is equal to a 5 per cent advance in all freight rates. The managers of the railroads, as trustees for the public, have no right to place this burden on the cost of transportation to you without a clear mandate from a public tri bunal speaking for you. The railroads have proposed the settle ment of this controversy either under the existing national arbitration law, or by refer ence to the Interstate Commerce Commis sion. This offer has been refused by the employes' representatives. Shall a nation-wide strike or an investigation under the Gov ernment determine this Issue?
