'i i t- -. Washington, D. C. Though termers usually feel little interest in jrailway labor disputes and are disposed to think that such troubles are remote from them and cannot touch them directly. In the pending ques-ttiobetween the Brotherhoods of jfreight trainmen and the railways of !the country the railways evidently Jare making special effort to inform the farmers on the points involved and to enlist their attention. It is argued by the" railroad man-- " agers that the final disposition, of the jdispute will be made by public sentiment They reason that the farmer, iwhen it comes to a final "showdown," really controls not only the political power but the sentiment of 'nearly all the states. Therefore, they 'are trying to appeal to his horse . sense. They are sending out a good deal of literature directed especially to the fanners probably the first time such a course has been taken in any great labor struggle. They say they are convinced of the general public's confidence in the horse sense, the insight and the fairness of the American farmer, and that, therefore, his influence must be powerful. High Wages Now Paid They are dwelling especially on the argument that the freight trainmen already are the highest paid laborers in the world. They submit figures to show that in many instances freight train employees earn from $75.00 a month for the trainmen, or "brake-man- " as they used to be called, to $250.00 a month for engineers, work-inifrom 22 to 25 days a month. They are asking farmers to inquire into the facts and convince themselves that most of the talk of excessive hours of labor on railways is empty and contradicted by the facts. More than sixteen hours of continuous work in railway service is forof bidden by law. The instances men kept on duty so long as sixeen hours are a very small fractional percentage of the total employment; they become less every year, and almost invariably are due to accident or some unusual weather conditions. The managers of the railway companies point out that the farmer f accustomed to from twelve to fourteen hours a day of steady work rarely earns in a year as much cash money as a trainman on duty from ten to twelve hours, and never continuously at work, can earn, resting d to from labor from of his time. In the south it is a familiar maxim that "it takes thirteen months to make a cotton crop." The man who raises ten .bales of cotton gets for it from $450.00 to $500.00, and from this must pay his fertilizer bills and labor. The trainmen are said to average $800.00 a year, this being the estimate of the Brotherhood leaders themselves, and the engineers to $2,500.00 a draw from $1,500.00 year, the conductors and firemen earning wages between those of the trainmen and engineers. Farmer Vitally Interested Aside from the question of justice, it is pointed out that the farmer's direct interest in the matter is that his welfare demands freight traffic adequate to the needs of the country, and "that whatever injures the railroads or hampers their operation or prevents their development is a direct Injury to him. If the trouble should flevelop a general strike of the freight train employees, resulting in a tie-u- p of traffic, the fanner Tvould be unable to ship out what he raises or to get in what he wants. He will be asked to consider whether the railroads should be crippled by being - compelled to pay 25 per cent increase In wages to men already receiving far more than the average prosperous farmer, with resulting injury to T"the fanner himself nd if the rail- are compelled to. grant the in crease and have to raise their freight rates, the farmer will have to pay a big part of the increase. n : receivday less than theyhad-bee- n ing ten years earlier. At that time there were 48,201 conductors with whom the statistics The conductors, therefore, dealt were only a slightly - more numerous class than the tenders and watchmen; yet, while the conductors had had their wages raised from $3.38 to $4.29 per day the less fortunate class of tenders and watchmen had to stand a reduction from- - $1.76 to $1.70 per day. If the cost of living has been steadily advancing for conductors, so as to justify an increase of 27 per cent in their wages, it seems difficult to explain why that same cost of living should have fallen sufficiently to warrant a decrease of 3 per cnt in the wages of switch tenders, crossing tenders, and watchmen. Take the single classification of general office clerks. There were 87,100 of these according to the official report A much larger number than of either engineers, firemen, or conductors. These general office clerks were paid an average of $2.21 per day in 1903, and of $2.50 In '1912; an Increase of only 13 per cent in the ten-ye- ar period. General office clerks, without exception, are compelled to live in - g him-'sel- one-fourt- h one-thir- -- cities, where cost of living is high. Engineers Better Off Engineers, on the other hand, are distributed between large towns and small towns; on the average, their living circumstances ought to make their expenses average considerably less than those of office clerks, yet the statistics show that engineers r have received in the period an increase of 24 per cent in their wages, making them average exactly day, while $5 per general office clerks have received an increase of only 13 per cent, making them average $2.50 per day. One of the worst underpaid classifications of railway employes is that of the station agents. There are just about 40,000 of these in the country, or nearly as many as the number of conductors. In 1903 station agents averaged $1.80 a day, and in 1912 they had been raised to only $2.20 a day, while in' that same time conductors had advanced from $3.38 to $4.20.. That is, the station agent in 1512 was getting just about half the wages of the conductor, and in ten years he had had. an average increase of 17 per cent, while the conductor's had been 27 per cent Here are two of the most numerous classes of railway employes: Trainmen, other than engineers, firemen, and conductors, numbered 136,809, while trackmen numbered 337,451. The statistics show that the trackmen were getting in 1903 an average of $1.31 per day, and in 1912 an average of $1.50 per day, an increase of 14 per cent What Others Got On the other hand, the classification of other trainmen was getting in 1903 $2.17 per day, and in 1912, $2.96 per day, an increase of 36 per cent In percentage, this is the largest advance received by any single class of railway employes during this decade. A general survey of wage conditions in the railway service and in other industries, it is believed, would show that in the last fifteen years the highly-- organized and favored classes of railway wage earners have had their incomes increased more than almost any other class of workers in the country, while the much more numerous, but less effectively organized classes of railway workers have probably received rather less increases than other industrial workers in general. In view of the strong feeling that these most fortunate classes of the railway employes are now making excessive and unreasonable demands, attention is now being called as never neiore to tnese general discrepancies. There is a strong disposition to inaugurate a general and sweeping inivestigation of the whole question of railway wages with a view to establishing some sort of public regulation not unlike that already applied to railroad rates, in the interest of employes and public alike. Meanwhile, there is a marked indisposition to extend further favors to those classes already most highly favored, at the expenss of other classes oremployes who appear to be getting very low wages. ten-yeaihi-crea- Martial law has. been relaxed The present agitation is nominally eight-hou- r for the substitution of an in Ireland and the people are alworkday in place of the present ten-hoschedule, but in reality it is a lowed to go about Dublin with of wages. move for an increase perfect freedom, except four Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. ur hours of the night.

Editor News: In reading last issue of your paper, I see a remeniscent article from Dr. J. T. Jones, which awakened old memories. While I did not know all the people to whom he referred, yet many of them I recall. When he referred to Glenville, alias Hardscratch, I could but be reminded of that grand old Roman, Uncle Matthew Taylor. Next to my last visit to Kentucky, he sent conveyance for me and I was his honored guest for two days. On same journey I enjoyed hospitality of Z. T. Taylor (Long Hungry) and no kinder heart throbs than pulsates in the bosoms of Uncle Matthew and Tom Taylor. ton and tobacco are the money crops, of North Carolina, this s tate; heln g second, in production of tobacco, Kentucky takipg first rank. It stands about fifth in cotton, Texas leading. North and South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama can't produce - cotton without aid of commercial fertilizers nor yet corn. Potash is what makes the fruit, as people in Kentucky know who use phosphate, guano and nitrate of soda. So we are handicapped by the braid of Germany and the greed and arrogance of England. Germany is not three times so large as Kentucky, and her soil is not nearly so fertile. Yet, where the United States makes, on an average, fifty bushels of pototoes per acre, Germany produces two hundred and two bushels. So instead of damning the Dutch, we HENRY W.

C To the public that pays .every dollar of the railroad cents of every dolbill (and forty-fiv-e transportation is for lar paid for of the four wages) the leaders of railway employees, brotherhoods who are demanding increased pay, say: "All the railroads have to do demands for higher to meet our wages is to shorten their trains, move freight more rapidly, and escape the penalty of overtime wages." The fallacy of this statement, which argument used in h is the support of the demand for increased wages, Is well shown in the following editorial which appeared in the Washington, D. C. Times of April 19, under the heading "A Mad Freight Train Idea:" "Everybody in the ranks of the general public will agree with the railway managers that the campaign which the railway workers are waging, particularly In the west, for shorter trains, while at the same time demanding higher pay and fewer hours of work, is of all possible claims the most preposterous. Indeed, in economics it is an ideal little short of mad. "The railroads have spent hundreds of milions of. dollars lowering eliminating sham curves. arnAoa. last-ditc- ballasting roadbeds and putting in heavy rails, so that powerful locomotives, larger cars, and longer trains could be handled in one movement. If this object had not been achieved railway wages never could have been advanced to the point at which they already havaarrived and traffic rates never could have been held down where they are today without the whole railroad system of the United States being made a financial wreck. "Any chUd can see that if, after the principal railroads of the country have .been reconstructed to haul the heavier tonnage in mass, you cut every freight train in half, the cost of operation must be increased stupendously, with two locomotives where one now does, with two engineers where one "now does, with two firemen where one now does, with two conductors where one now does, with virtually two whole train crews where one now does, not to speak of the new equipment and the new terminal facilities that would be needed. "This proposal is not essentially different from urging that the world from the steamships of fo back the sail barks of centuries to ago, from the railroads themselves to the stage coaches and ox carts of the past. It is like suggesting that the farmer himself drive his wagon-loa- d of produce in small lots day after day to the distant market of the city instead of loading it in bulk into freight cars and shipping it all at nnca by rail." It Is calculated that if a general tie-uand paralysis of ' all freight traffic should result from the demand of the freight trainmen for an increase of 25 , per cent in their wages, a large number of the poorer people of New York City would face star-- ! vation within three days; In other words, these people have , available suppKes of food for t, not more than two days ahead. Other large cities would face 4 like conditions. Milk supplies . would be cut off, and babies da- pendent on the daily milk Jar fr for sustenance would be left i( to perish.

Editor News: As I am a reader of your paper and enjoy reading home letters and letters from other States, I will write a few lines to the News, as I have a number of relatives and friends back in Kentucky that may hear from me through the News, that' I haven't time to write too. I left Kentucky June 25, 1914. I got to Lawrence the 26th at II o'clock Friday night. Well, I will tell you something about Lawrence. It is a nice town of 15,000 population. The Kansas University is located here, and also graded school, high school and business college. There is a government Indian school in South Lawrence. The Bowersack Mills and Pow ers Co., owns and operates a large roller mill, grain elevator, paper mill and a large ice plant. The Missouri Vally Bridge Co., is building a new traffic bridge across the Kansas river and the old bridge is being repaired by the Interurban Street car Co., to cross the river into the main town. This street car line runs from Kansas City to Lawrence. There is ated two railroads, The Union Pacific and Santa Fe running through Lawrence". Well, there is quite a bit of dairying, grazing and hay making in this part of Kansas. The principal crops are wheat, oats, corn and potatoes. Hogs and cattle are a good price. - ar -- n t 8 Gradyville. Mr. and Mrs. L. Simmons vis- f heiadair HATES CHICKENS her$20., . county news netted Mrs. Willie C.
