"In a discussion of the proposed demands In the official journal of the Trainmen's organization, the following explanation of the demands is given by one of the of that Brotherhood: "'There appears to be some difference of opinion as to what such a proposal involves, therefore it may be seasonable to say that there Is quite FROM a difference between an eight-hou- r work-daand an eight-hou- r basic work-day- .

In the ten years from 1903 to 1912, inclusive, Ihe salaries of general officers increased an average of 17 per cent. In that same period the salaries of engineers Increased 24 per cent.

"The proposals of the employees, aa in reality formulated and officially explained In the above citation, simply mean that they shall be paid more money than at present for the same work they are now doing. The matter, therefore, resolves Itself primarily into a question of wages and consequently of increased cost "Applying the proposed demands to the present conditions of work would mean an Increase ranging from 12 to 40 per cent in cost, as the roads would be compelled in most cases to continue the present hours of operations ' since changes to escape the payment of overtime would cause a higher percentage of increase than the figures already given. "The railways of the southeast are in no condition to stand any increase expenses, much in their operating less such increases as would result from granting these demands. The already pay higher wages to train and engine employees than are pal.' in other sections of the countrj where traffic is much more denst and they have had no part In th rate increases which recently hav been granted by the Interstate Com merce Commission to railways in otb er territories.

The railways would be forced either to secure increases ir. their rates or to lower their cost of operation by curtailment of train service and reducing the outlay for main tenance and improvement necessar to. meet the transportation needs of he rapidly developing southeastern territory.
