WASHINGTON. Feb IS. The first
official Indication of what proposed
railroad wage tncreasis would cost was
given at today's hearing before the
railroad wagi commission, when J. A.
Franklin presented the claims of the
railway employes' department of the
American Federation of Labor.
"Figuring an average of S3 1-S per
cent increase, on the flat Increases
asked, the additional cost would be
ISI.000.000 annually.' Secretary Lane.
chairman of the commission, computed.
Mr. Franklin said the estimate seemed
correct based upon Increases for 2i0.000
He also had suggested that sny In
creases should apply to unorganized
workers of the same trades, numbering
about 2SO.00O who were not figured In
the rough calculation. The wage basis
asked was IS a day for skilled men.

None of the witnesses has submitted
estimates of what the Increase requested
would cost, all apparently taking the
position of A. B. Garretson, of the con
ductors, who said that It did not matter
what the cost would be. since the in
creases were essential to maintain
the standard of living and that if an

I.ow wsges have been blamed by the
witnesses for the exodus of railroad
workers to other Industries. Mr.
Franklin said the various shop unions
he represented had lost IS per cent of
their membership to shipyards and still
others to munitions factories.
Warren S. Stone, of the engineers.
told the commission that never before
this Winter have the railroads entered
the bad weather season with equipment
in such "rotten condition" and said that
lack of skilled men In shop: was re
sponsible for curtailment of output
there to 60 per cent of normal. He
said there would be no shortage of
engines If provision were made to care
for motive power.
Maay Verge of Quitting.
A. K. Marker, speaking for the broth
rrhood of maintenance of way em
ployes. said his men were on the verge
of quitting because they saw living
costs mounting steadily without ad
vance In wages.
Lack of preparation by the railroads
to meet the Winter weather was the
cause of traffic congestion, Warren S.
Stone, grand chief of the Brotherhood
of locomotive Engineer, today told the
railroad wage commission.
Long hours worked by railroad men
Mr. Stone denounced as a menace

yards were working on an eight-hour
shift until the movement was begun
for Increased wages, when the work
was lengthened to enable the railroads
to show larger amounts paid to em
Employment of women In the place
of men was condemned by Mr. Mone.
He said women now were being used
