"Hundreds of men in the state are

Time Comma When Controversies of
Men And Employers Is Submitted.
WASHINGTON, April:. Federal
authorities express the opinion that
the time is coming when the railroads
and their employes will submit all
controversies relative to wages, hours
of service and conditions of employ
nvtit to government boards rather
than undergo the distressing experi
ences that usually follow strikes and
partian tie-ups. Congress has provi
ded the machinery whereby mediation
and arbitration shall be applied to la
bor disputes In the railroad world. This
machinery is found In the "mediation
and arbitration" act of 1S98. which for
a long time was not Invoked owing to
the distrust of railway employers and
A fair test of the efficacy of the law
Is now being made In the difference
between the Southern Pacific Railroad
company and Us employes growing out
of the strike of the latter because of
dissatisfaction over wages and other
matters. Both sides to the controver
sy having signified a willingness to
submit their troubles to a board of
arbitration, steps were taken by the
Chairman of the Interstate Commerce
Commission and the Commissioner of
Labor to bring them together. The in
dications are that an award will be
made satisfactory alike to the rail
rod and Its employees.
The mediation and arbitration act
of 1898 applies to common carriers,
their officers, agents and employees.
It provides that whenever a contro
versy Shall arise between a carrier and
Its employees, "seriously Interrupting
or threatening to Interrupt the busi
ness of the said carrier," the Chair
man of the Inter-State Commission
and the Commissioner shall, upon the
request of either party, use their best
efforts by "conciliation and mediation"
to amicably settle the differences be
tween emDlovers and employees. If
mediation falls then the law offers the
alternative of arbitration. Mediation
was tried In the case of the Couthern
Pacific, without results. Arbitration
was then proposed, and if was aJop
Chairman Martin A. Knapp, of the
Interstate Commerce Comml1on Is
of the opinion that before long arbi
tratlon will become fashionable In the
transportation world. '1 regard this
law as well eoncelved and sound in
principle," he said. "It goes about as
far as useful legislation of this kind

compulsory arbltrtion. That, to my
mind, la a contradiction of terms. The
tribunal to which a party to a contro
versy can be brought against his will
Is not In any true sense arbitration,
because the very Idea of arbitration
Is a voluntary submission b both sides.

voluntary arbitration must come, in
