The managers and engineers mat la
joint conference at 4 o'clock In ths
afternoon and formally signed the
schedule which Insures peace and runs
Indefinitely until It Is reopened by a
notice of SO days oa either side. .
Under the terms of ths compromise

The differential haa been firmly estab
lished, whlah wa the obief point of

service, through freight, pusher and
helper engines, wreck trains, snow
plows, work trains and mixed trains

crease of 80 cents a day Is oonooded en

service, and the advanoe on motor care
Is 40 cents a day. with complete Juris
diction over the work.
Overtime Demand Waived.
The engineers In the settlement had
to waive the demand for pro rata over
time. Under the custom the men dc
not receive any pay for overtime leas
than 10 minutes, while they arc given
an hour for anything over that. They
charge the railroads with making them
work 2t mlnutee every night and then
calling them off before the 10-mlnute
lljntt is up.
In the transfer esrvtce In Chicago
the engineers are paid by the hour, re
ceiving 40 cents an hour. Under the
new schedule they will receive 46 cenU
an hour, though they demanded to have
the transfer service placed on a freight
basis, which would have netted the
men about 15 a day. The demand for
pay for preparatory time, used In get
ting their engines ready for a run, also
was denied in the compromlec
Representatives of the engineers are
not satisfied with the settlement, and
they expect In the near future to take
up again the question of pay in the
switchyards and terminal service In
Chicago. The new schedule gives the
engineers 14.25 a day In the swltch
yarda. while the firemen on the same
engines receive 14.75.

too low In proportion to the firemen,
and that they will not be satisfied

SAN FRANCISCO. Dec L (Special.)
The holiday season, which reached Its
climax tonight, is far the most brilliant
San Francisco has ever enjoyed.
No city In the world is happier and
none has greater cause to be.
The remarkably fine weather of the
whole holiday season, piled on top of a
multitude of fundamental blessings, has
made the San Francisco Tuletlde a record-breaker.
In the matter of fine
weather, Deoember, 1910, haa been a
record month of all the many that have
been figured upon in furthering the
benevolent mission of good old Saint
Weather Proves Good.
Atmospherle conditions have been such
that shopping was possible on' all days
of December, the clear, bright skies In
viting the shopper to linger over ' his
or her purchases longer than usual. It
meant the constant surging of throngs
In and out the big department stores.
"It msy seem like a fairy tale to you."
remarked one of the managers of a large
Market-street department store today,
"but this weather has added at least
1500,000 to our Christmas sales. I am
basing my estimation upon last year's
"Even had we experienced the normal
rainfall I do not think our sales would
have been less than those of 1909. But
rain Is the greatest detriment to Christ
mas shopping possible.
Assistance Not Adequate.
"Last year there were about 1309 men
and women taken on in the department
stores ss extra help. In some cases these
were found to be too many. This year
the number has been doubled and several
stores of ths larger" sort discovered they
have not had sufficient assistance.
"I would estimate that the fine weather
means at least an addition of 12.500.000
to tbe profits of the merchants who cater
esDcclslly to the holiday trade, and that
the extra help will receive fully 1600,000
for their services."

neat and orderly and there is no lack of
wholesame food for the entire family.
The father is a laborer and earns one
