Uncle Billey Gates, who went
to Portland some time ago to at
tend the annual meeting of the
State Pioneer Association and
on a visit to friends in Tillamook

While coming from C F Wa

his Ford car, Claude Norris had
what might have been a very
serious accident. When making
a shortturn where the road is nar
row just below liamp McUinnw
place, he met R J Carsner, who
was going to Monument in his
new Dodge, and in passing
Claude's car got off the grade.
Jdr Carsner helped him get back
on the road and when he started,
from some cause he lost control
of the steanng gear oi nis ma
chine and it headed off the bluff
at the lower side of the road.
Just before the car " went over
Claude jumped and in the fall
broke his knee cap very badly
and sustained several other cuts
and bruises. He was unconscious
when Mr. Carsner reached him
and his head was pinned uder the
car. Mr, Carsner. succeedeed
In extracting him from the
wreck. After he had regained
consciousness, Mr Carsner got him
into the Dodge' and brought him
to town. Dr Mckenzie was
immediately, summoned from
Fossil, and when he had made a
thorough investigation found his
wounds painful but not serious,
however, he will be invalided for
8ome time. .
TrDH Tl TV m O T?
Faced by demand from the conductor engineers; firemen and brakemert
that would impose on the country an additional burden in transportation costs of
$100,000,000 a year, the railroads propose that this wage problem be settled by
reference to an impartial Federal tribunal.
With these employes, whose efficient service is acknowledged, the railroads
have no differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by such
a public body.
Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration
The formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement of
the controversy is as follows:
"Our confer trier hare demonstriled lint wt cinnot harmonire our didrrrnrn of opinion and lhaf csentiislif tha
matter in ronlrovmr mutt be passed upon by oilier and ci;nkrrted 'ic:. Therefore, we propose that your

tion to consider and protect the rights and equities of all the interests a'.ected, and to provide additional revenue

reasonable; nr, in the event the Interstate Commerce Commission cannot, under existing laws, act in the premises,
that ste jointly request Congress to lake audi action at may be uecessary to enable the Commission la consider aud
promptly dispose of the questions involved ; or
I. By arbitration in accordance with the provisions of tha Federal law" (The Kewlaoda Act). i
Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote
Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the joint conference held in New
York, June 115, refused the offer of the railroads to submit the issue to arbitration
or Federal review, and the employes arc now voting on the question whether
authority shall be given these leaders to declare a nation-wide strike. ;
The Interstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the railroads as the
public body to which this issue ought to be referred for these reasons: .
No other body with such an intimate know'.'da
of railroad conditions hat tuch an unquestioned posi
tion in the public confidence.
The rates the railroads may chars; the public for
transportation are now largely fixed by this Govern

ployea as wages; and the money to pay increased wage

TLe Interstate Commerre Commission, with its con
trol over ratct. is in a position to make a complete
investigation and render stu b decision at would pro
l.cl the interests of the railroad employes, the owners
of the railroads, and ih public.
A Quezon For the Public to Decide ,
The railroads feel that they have no right to grant a wage preferment of
$100,000,000 a year to thc6e employes, now highly paid and constituting only
one-fifth of all the employes, without a clear mandate, from a public tribunal that
shall determine the merits of the case after a review of all the facts.
The single issue before the country is whether this controversy is to be settled by an
impartial Government inquiry or by industrial warfare.
