THE RAIL. STRIKE
In any consideration of the threat
encd strike of the railroad workers
of the UnlUd States there should bo
taken Into account, It seems (o us,
two or three, essential factors before
a decision Is reached as to whether
or not tho mctt arc justified In carry
lng out their announced plans. The
strike voto was taken last summer
after a 12 per cent cut in pay had
been made but no steps have been
taken toward . putting It Into effect
until within the last 10 days when
railroad officials announced plans
lor a further cut of 10 per cent.
Tho first question one would want
answered is "What are the various
pay scales with the 12 per cent cut
In effect and what will they he it
n further reduction Is made?" In
other words, jWill the pay be fair or
too low for present living costs? Wo
cannot answer the question off hand.
We have at hand no tables .showing
what the various scales may be but It
Is our impression, and we believe, the
general feeling that the various In
creases granted during the war and
after made the various railroad work
ers about the best paid class in the
.In the past 12 months wage re
ductions have been general. Here at
home the timber worker's wage has
been reduced about 40 per cent.
Farmers and stock raisers have had
a hard tlmo to make wages at all.
Unless the rail men can show that
the pay which will result from tho
cuts mado and proposed will leave
them too little, there is no reason why
they should not' share the general lot
costs and closer proximity to tho
markots of tho country having given
them an advantage so long as they
had timber,, that'tho northwest could

In short, tho south Is slipping and
the west Is coming into its own. Tho
futuro is secure.
AN OPEN CONFERENCE
As the time draws near for tho
Washington disarmament conference
tho demand that tho meetings bo
public grows in strength nnd volume.
This Is not because anyone Is cspoc
tally curious to know what may go on
In tho conference room but becauso
the people want to bo assured that
wars are to be brought to an end and
they arc satisfied that unless tho old
ways of secret diplomacy are ended
there may still bo chances of war.
Only a few years ago, the, people
remember, the world was engaged In
terrible strugglo to curb tho Ger
man war beast. It was the war to end
war. Idealistic hojio looked through
the horrors of the conflict to a fit
ture that would be peaceful Just be
cause that was such an awful calam
ity for the nations to pass through.
With the armistice hope ran high
The peace conferenco was to bring
permanent peace and then tho con
ference began and behind closed
and take the cuts that are coming to" aoore n" lne ""gams ana iraacs
them. I were mado that left the world sick
Another factor lies in the legal sit- at heart and Peaco aPI'afet'- " '
uauon. a uoaru to ueai wiin me ques
tion of wages, the railroad labor
board, has been established by law
and has all the machinery necessary
to handle the "matter. In threatening
a strike the rail men are Ignoring
the labor bqard and the law. If there
were no such machinery the matter
would bear a' different aspect. With
it the public feels that it cannot give
Its support to a selfish, highhanded
proceeding that will mean much suf
fering. After all 'public sympathy and sup
port will determine the result. There
can be no doubt today that the public
Is not with, but is strongly against,
the rail unions and their plans.
SOUTH IS SLIPPING
At various times in the past we
have pointed out the growing Indi
cations of the centering of the lum
ber industry in the west. Here, of,
course, is tho country's greatest tim
ber reserve. The largest portion of
tho standing timber In the United
States is concentrated in the states of
Oregon and Washington. In spite of
this concentration, however, other
sections have led in the production
of lumber, their lower production
away as ever,
Possibly the result would liavo
been the same had the people known
from day to day what was going on
but It is unlikely. Public sentiment
would have forced a different end
Ing. In the case of the coming Wash
ington meeting no one wants to have
any such chances of failure taken
The people want the doors open, the
cards on the table and the trading,
if there is to be any, done In the day
light. Only by such means, they
know, will the causes of war be
brought out into tho light and re
moved and the horror ended.
If you who read this feel that only
by publicity will the disarmament
conference reach its greatest possi
bilities write at once to President
Harding and Secretary Hughes and
join your voice to the voices of all
those from every part of the country
who are urging open meetings and
the very utmost in the way of limit
ation of armaments.'
