J. B. Rhodes, chairman of the ex
ecutive committee for the western ter
ritory of the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen and the Order of Railway
Conductors, arrived In Portland yester
day from Washington, D. C, where he
conferred originally with William G.
McAdoo, Director-General of Transpor
tation, and later with the regional di
rectors of the executive committee of
the Railroad Administration relative to
the back pay due railway employes of
the O.-W. R. & N. system from Janu
ary 1 to the present.
Representatives from the Western
conference who were represented at
Washington were: G. O. Barnhart, gen
eral chairman of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers; John Clifford,
general chairman of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Firemen and Engineers; F.
D. Hobbs, of the Brotherhood of Rail
way Trainmen, and J. B. Rhodes, of the
Order of Railway Conductors for the
O.-W. R. & N. system and chairman of
the executive committee for the West
ern territory for the trainmen and con
ductors. There is dissatisfaction among the
employes of the O.-W. R. & N. Company,
says Mr. Rhodes, because the company
has not paid all the back pay due the
men under the new wage increase,
which became effective January 1.
Through the efforts of Chairman
Rhodes the increase in wages, which
was effective from January 1, has
been added to the Increase made ef
fective April 1. 1916, Instead of that of
January 1, 1916, which was a lower
The rate made effective April 1. 1916,
was $5.08 for conductors and $3.75 for
brakemen for level territory and J5.35
for conductors and $4.01 for trainmen
on mountain divisions. The newest in
crease adds 33.20 per cent for brake
men, 13.61 for conductors and 32.71 for
firemen. This net Increase will cost the
railroads several millions a year.
Another feature which was brought
to the attention of the Director-General
was the vast number of experi
enced railway men who have left the
service because of the higher wages in
the shipyards and other vocations, said
Mr. Rhodes. The railroads have also
lost large numbers of the younger
men, who have been drafted into the
service or who have enlisted.
Mr. Rhodes- will be In Portland when
Director-General McAdoo arrives here
from San Francisco.
