Fare Raise to Keep Street
Cars From Warrant Basis
During federal control of the
railroads disputes which did not
involve waj,e agreements were
settled by boards of adjustment,
known as .N'os. l, 2 and S. These
board 3 went out of existence
when the roads were returned to
private ownership and the em
ployes want them re-established.
Rnanl to Consider Plea.
" The roads contended when the
matter came up in recent wage
hearings before the board that
the board had power only to deal
with wage questions and that con
sequently it could not rule on
other differences. k I
The board took the plea of the
employes under advisement and
announced that if it decided to go
into the matter an early hearing
would be held.
Warning that "ultra-conserva
tive" leaders of the railroad broth
erhoods would cease their efforts
to hold their men in check unless
some plan to adjust differences
between roads and employes Is
found was delivered to the United
States railway labor board; to
day by Warren S. Stone of Cleve
land, grand chief of the Brother
hood of Railway Engineers.
Ilan of Results Is Sought.
Appearing before the board
with officials of 15 other recog
nized railway unions, Mr. Stone
announced that, after being
classed "for 17 years as an ultra
conservative, I have arrived at
the point where I am through
making excuses to the men."
"There . must he some plan
found somewhere, some place,
where we can get results for thes
men," Mr. Stone continued. "The
locomotive engineers have carried
the load of responsibility for
years. e have tried to embody
your board's decision of last July
in agreements with 238 railroad,
but only four of these agreements
have been signed. The roads re
fuse to sign until the hoard
passes on the question of rules."
Xal ionnl Hoards Concerned.
With Mr. Ftone appeared offic
ials of the other employes' or
ganizations, asking that the board
hold a hearing to decide upon
the creation of national boards
of adjustment which would hear
and pass on controversies other
than wage disputes. The matter
has been pending for some time,
due to the fact that adjustment
boards created under United
States government control have
no jurisdiction over disputes aris

Means by which the altered
"graft" was made possible, the
witness testified. Included lack of
inspections, failure to check re
pair work, overcharges for ma
terials and labor and unnecessary
repairs. He cited an instance ot a
repair engineer who. he raid, had
sat in a pilot house and approved
repair bills amounting to "thous
ands of dollars" without ever
looking at the work. He declared
inspectors had been told that
"cost" were none of their busi

make, rather than cut down, re

proximately I95.000. and lb
shipping board had advanced for
the re-conditioning of the hip

about $ 1.500. Ouo. which an audit
