UNIONS REFUSE ;
J. W. Higglns, chairman of the
Conlerence Committee of Man
agers of the Western Railways,
today made the following state
"The tefusal of the Order of
Railway Conductors and of the
Brotherhood of Ksilroad Train
men to arbitrate certain defer
ences between them and the viest
em railways creates situation of
great concern to the bublic. The
Watson Parker Railway La bo:
Act was passed by Congress only
two years ago to afford a peace
able means of seltlingtuch differ
ences. It was arafted by repre
aentatives of all the railway laior
Organizations and a majority of
the railways, and its passage a as
urged by both Of them. Persitt
ence by the conductors and train
men in their refusal to arbitiale
would amonnt to a repud a on
of this law.
"On June 25, 1927, an arl.it a
lion board formed under the Uu
son-l'arker Railway Labor ict
made an award in a wagediapute
between the Western railway
and their conductors and tiain
men. It held that ihe fact that
employees of these classes on
eastern and sjuthess ern I nts
recently had been granted an in
crease was no reason why an ud
vance should be granted in wt
ern territory, because road cjn
ductors and trainmen in roao at r
vice in the west previously had
been earning Ci to 7J per cent
more than those in the east and
southeast, and because, as he
roads of the western group were
earning relatively much smaller
net returns than those of the
east and southeast, they ciuld
not afford to pay an advance.
While refusing an advance to con
uctors and trainmen, theaibi
ration board awarded ti ad-
vance of 7 per cent to the yard
men of the western lines.
"This award was effective un
til March 1, 1928, but in Nov. m
ber, 1927, the conductors and
train men renewed their demand
on the western railways for ic-
vances. Because of wage negoii
lions that were pending t(
tween the western railways and
their locomotive engineers aid

time the firman secured an aJ
vance of Ci per cent by arbitra
tion and the engineers accepted
a settlement On the same bus's
"The Conlerence Committee
of Manag. rs was willing to itive
the conductors and trainmen in
creases equivalent to those receiv
above the hintiest in history,
that is the rates awarded by I he
Unit'd States IUil oad Labr
Hoard in 1920. The repr a Na
tives of the employees refused
to accept either ol theBe pror. osi
lions but insisted, as a rninimurr,
upon the retention of the rules
srid an advance of 7i percent.
As previously stated, the engin
eers and firemen have already
accepted Ci per cent. It is eslima
ted that without any change n
rules, an increase of f J per cent
to the conductors and train men
would cont the western railways
$0,600, 0(0 h v-ar. wl.il an in
crease of 7i per cent would cost
"Mediation between iba two
parties has been conducted by
lion. John Williams, a memter
of the United States Megat on
Board. Mediation having appi r
ently tailed, the Conference Com
mittee of Manager! at-ked Mr.
Williams io use his good offices
to bring about arbitration o.' the
matters still in dispute. What
this meant was simply that there
should be arbitration as to whelh
er the objectionable rules in
question ahonlJ be ehminat d
and the employees should be giv
en an advance of 7 per cent or
the rules should be sl owed to
stand and Ihey should be fcrantid
ihe same advance as the engin
eers and firemen,
"There lias been no favorable
change in conditions on the wist
ern railways since an arbitral ion
bjdrJ held on June 25. 1927, beld
that their road service conductors
and train meu were not entitled
to any advance in wanes. Tr e
railways are still falling tar ahoit
o earning a fair 'return' arid are
earning a relatively much smaller
return than those of eastern or
southeastern Urriiory. The con
ference Committee of Manatee)
has offered the settlement it lias
with the conductors and trainmen
because the engineers and lite
nun on these roads already h .ve
secured increases. It seems car
