Phone 171-W. 93-9Sp Federal Inquiry or Railroad btriKe Faced by demands from the conductors, engineers, firemen and brakemen that would impose on the country an additional burden in transportation costs of $100,000,000 a year, the railroads propose that this wage problem be settled by reference to an impartial Federal tribunal. With these employes, whose efficient service is acknowledged, the railroads have no differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by such a public body. Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration The formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement of the controversy is as follows: -Our conferences have demonstrated that we cannot harmonize our differences of opinion and that eventually the matters in controversy must be passed upon by other and disinterested agencies. Therefore, we propose that your proposals and the proposition of the railuaxs be disposed of by one or the other of the following methods: 1 Preferably by submission to the Interstate Commerce Commission, the only tribunal which, by reason of its accumulated information bearing on railway condition, and its control of the revenue of the railways, is in a posi ' tion to consider and protect the rights and equ.t.es of all the interests affected and to provide additional revenue necessary to mt. the added cost of operation in case your proposals are found by the Commission to be lust and reasonable; or, in the event the Interstate Commerce Commission cannot, under existing laws, act in the premises , that we jointly request Congress to take such action as may be necessary to enable the Commission to consider ana promptly dispose of the questions involved: or 2. By arbitration in accordance with the provisions of the Federal law" (The Newlands Act). Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the joint conference held in New York, June 1-15, refused the offer of the railroads to submit the issue to arbitration or Federal review, and the employes are now voting on the question whether authority shall be given these leaders to declare a nation-wide strike. The Interstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the railroads as the ...... 1 . 1 L 1 C .1 public body to which this issue ougnt to De reierrcu iui ujcsc icdauua. No other body with such an intimate knowlidge of railroad conditions has such an unquestioned posi tion in the public confidence The rates the railroads may charge the public for transportation are now largely fixed by this Govern ment board. Out of every dollar received by the railroads from the public nearly one-half is paid directly to the em ployes as wages ; and the money to pay increased wages can come from no other source than the rates paid by the public The Interstate Commerce Commission, with its con trol over rates, is in a position to make a compleU investigation and render such decision as would pro tect the interests of the railroad employes, the ownen of jhe railroads, and the public. A Question For the Public to Decide The railroads feel that they have no right to grant a wage preferment of $100,000,000 a-year to these employes, now highly paid and constituting only one fifth of all the employes,, without a clear mandate from a public tribunal that shall determine the merits of the case after a review of all the facts. The single issue before the country is whether this controversy is to be' settled by an tmpartial Government inquiry or by industrial warfare.

Sunset Central Line NEW AND SIMPLER CODE FOR TELEGRAPH (By Associated Press) VIENNA, July 8. Dr. Max Herz, a well known Vienna scientist, has in vented asort of combination of talking machine and telegraph which -will eng able the blind to "read" with, far great er ease than the present cumbersome and costly Braile books. The principle of the new device lies in the conveying of "Morse'' or other telegraphic signs to the blind through the se.nse of hearing. On the machine are placed small records, each of which may contain a whole story, written out in code. To produce these records a further instrument composed of two Morse keys and electric sounders, is required, the sounders being connected with a needle which cuts into the prepared wax record. The records consist only of long and short sounds and they can be sold at extraordinarily low prices. . It is proposed through this medium to issue a daily newspape rfor the blind. British soldiers are proverbially good fighters, but let us place some credit where credit is due. They're always fed on Irish stew. There's rhyme and reason in that. St Louis Globe Democrat.
