as my personal answer to his welcome
letter. The news from all parts of the
line is even better, I am glad to inform
you, than the committee led to me to
expect, and is all the more gratifying on
that account. Trackmen, without regard
to whether they have membership in the
organization or not, are making common
cause, and all have suspended work for
the same purpose, namely, to secure fair
working rules, giving protection from in-
justice and a living rate of pay. $1.35 per
day is just as small to a non-union man
as it is to a union man; f 57.50 per month
or even $65.00 or $70.00 is too small pay
for one occupying the responsible posi-
tion of a section or yard foreman, and
working all night, -as the foremen are
abliged to do without a cent of pay for
overtime, is felt to be an injustice by a
non-uniofi man just as strongly as his
union brother, and both protest against
the injustice. We are trying to improve
conditions for all without regard to their
union afQliations, being united in a com-
mon effort, by a common misery, to make
conditions better for all. I commend you
for the law-abiding manner in which you
are conducting the strike, and which is
gaining you the respect and sympathy of
the public. Continue the same line in
which you have begun, use every lawful
method to induce any who may be brought
in to replace you to see the wrong they
are doing themselves as well as you. The
strike will be called off the moment the
officials have agreed to arbitration or any
fair method of settling the controversy,
with a guarantee of a fair and impartial
hearing, to the dismissed committee. I
will keep you posted by frequent bulle-
tins, but the matter is in your own hands
and you can achieve success by staying
quit until a satisfactory settlement has
been made.

Yours fraternally,
(Signed) A. B. Lowe,

President, I. B. M. W. E.

Vice-President Powers and the commit-
teemen representing the union report that
company spotters and detectives, who are



part of the company's system of espion-
age, are constantly on the trail of the
men.— From "The Scranton Times", Se;^t
19.

An Amusing Incident.



An amusing incident grew out of the
strike situation yesterday afternoon when
President Lowe received a letter addressed
to himself as president of the Lackawana
railroad. It was an offer to furnish guards,
and read as follows:

Pittsburg, Pa,, Sept. 18. 1911.
President A. B. Ix>we,
Delaware, Lackawanna & Western R. R. Co..

Scranton, Pa.
Dear Sir: This service Is In a position to
furnish guards for your railroad trouble. Can
refer you to Thomas A. McQualde, superinten-
dent of police in this city, as to our reliability.
Will have ou^ representatives call on you.
should you desire. Would be grateful If you
would file this letter in the office of the proper
official of the road for further reference. We
have all the facilities for acting as an employ-
ment bureau for your company in this com-
munity with a population of more than T.OOO.OOO
people.

Very respectfully,
McGOVBRN DETECTIVE SERVICE.

President Lowe Is a rugged Scotchman,
over six feet tall, and has a great fund of
humor. He thought that it was a good
Joke and to rectify the mistake he sent the
letter to President Truesdale, supplementing
the explanation with a naive request that
the railroad join him In getting rid of the
guards employed by the company and put-
ting in their places the "old reliable" track-
men. This letter was as follows:

COYNE HOUSE.

Scranton. Pa., Sept 19, 1911.
Mr. Wm. H. Truesdale,

President D., L. & W. R. R. Co.,
90 West St.. New York, N. Y.

Sir: 1 do not know whether you ore fond of
a joke, but if you are this will appeal to your
sense of humor. I enclose a card which hai*
been sent to me, addressing me as the presi-
dent of the D., Li. & W. R. R. The letter be-
gins: "Dear Sir — ^This service is in a position
to furnish guards for your railroad trouble.'*
and goes on to solicit an order from me in
connection with my supposed trouble as presi-
dent of the road. I enclose you his card.

May I suggest. Mr. President, that you sug-
gest a means, as you do not accept my method
or Deputy Commissioner Downey's, by which
you can be relieved of those guards and g'>t
back to the old reliable? I need not give you
any further assurance that anything I can do
to assist in a settlement, honorable to all con-
cerned, is at your service and that of your
track employes. I am

Yours truly,

A. B. LOWE.

"What brilliant detectives they must be,"
lauglilngly commented the union's chief as
he sealed the letter to President Truesdale.



•O—



A Possible Reason.

Teacher — If I were to stand on my
head the blood would run into it. Why
does it not run into my feet?"

Litlo Girl— Coz they ain't empty.

She had to stay in at recess.

Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
Ry. Strike.

Below you will find a circular is-
sued by firesident Lowe approving
of the request of the committee, in
response to the vote.of the good men
who endured. to the end, that the
strike be called off. Nothing need
be added to what the circular tells
of. the cause of the failure at this
time to improve conditions for our
good, people on the D., L. & W. The
reflections of those men as they went
back to their sections, vacant of any
foremen until each man filled his
own, must fill them with remorse
and shame. "No need to scold," as
the circular says. The thoughts and



suggestions of their friends, their
fellow epiployees in oth^r branches
of the service and their own con-
sciences may well be left to be their
puiiishment, but the lesson should
not, be lost and will not be by our
good fellows on other roads. Not
one single foreman was replaced by
a track foreman. Specials and Win-,
chesters there were in abundance,
but not one foreman on any section
where a foreman struck until the
foolish iellow replaced himself. Be
assured that the president in his cir-
cular to these men while on strike
was abundantly justified by the fact
that the scarcest article of labor on
the North American continent is a
competent section foreman. All
roads are short of them and no road
can. spare one to help another, even
if;^ competent track foreman could
be found to disgrace himself by
taking service on a road where hi9
comrades were on strike. The cir-
cular follows:

President Lowe's Letter.

rades who have gone back on their
