WHERE DOES THE PUBLIC
All America is holding its
breath and watching every move
between the railroads and the
brotherhoods of employes. What
will hapen? When will it hap
pen? What will we do if there is
a strike? Are the employes
justified in asking for an eight
hour day? Are the railroads
justified, in refusing to grant an
eight hour day?
Under, the present coditions
the trainmen get paid by the
hour aridthier working days are
just as long as thier runs happen
tq be. If the run takes eight
hours they work eight hours, if
it requires eleven hours, .eleven
hours is the length of the day.
Now the employes ask that they
be, granted an eight hour day
with extra pay for more than
tight hours. When a man does
a day's work does he pot de
serve a little rest and. recrea
tion? .If ;It is necessary for him
to,, be denied this rest and recre
ation is it not worth a little more
to him than his regular working
,.The railroads want to arbi
trate. They want to arbitrate
the last rights or their trainmen
the length of time they shall
work. Nearly 400,000 men are
standing for the same principle
and they threaten to strike if
they are not granted the conces
Bion. Do strikes benefit any
one? Here is what Thomas S.
Adams and Helen L. Sumner
have to say about strikes in
their book on Labor Problems:
"Does the strike pay the work
ingman? The answer of the
most conservative labor leaders
is that it does, and they may
be supposed to know their busi
ness. The strike, they point
out, often drags be lh employers
and employes from a dangerous
rut and facilitates the adop
tion of more efficient methods
of work and production. Again
the morals of organized labor,
the feeling of solidarity, is im
measurably stimulated, they be
lieve, by the common conflict
and the common sacrifices de
manded in this conflict. 'It is
difficult to overestimate the
gain, from a righteous labor up
rising,' says John Mitchell, 'and
there dre few moral forces more
uplifting than the strike spirit
that cements, a vast army of
men.' more particularly they in
sist that strikes are necessary to
impress the employer with the
power of organized labor, and
prepare him for peaceable col
This Is the laborers point of
view. The railroad, has its way
of looking at it and the public
stands by and suffers the con
sequences of the' abtlbns of both
sides. Strikes may be a good
thing fqr ttie wprldncman, but
the are poor, ecpnpmica for
anyftQWV The public suffers
and pays the biUfl. If" there Is a
loe" Ifi'eir es.:tbera,iiro93R

jiojrau-iOBf .crops; cities will nave
toid famkiee all inliiiid business
will be demoralized and tho mil
Ions that the public loses will
be so large that the amount lost
by the. railroads and their em
ployes will look small.
President Wilson has asked
congress to pass legislation that
will protect tho public against
great loss on account of a strike.
This is one of tho duties of con
gress under tho police power.
