there are the special passenger trains
such as the Farmers* spring trains
to the West; heavy travel often
compelling the transcontinental ex-
press trains to run in sections, three
or four often following their regular
express; the harvesters' excursions,
• Ste. Anne de Beaupre, and numer-
ous other special trains for special
occasions, and in addition to all
these the freights regular and spe-
cial. Most freights are run as spe-
cials of which the only notice we.
have is a flag letting us know they
will come, no time given and usual-
ly our first notice of their coming
is when they put in an appearance.
Our rules ask us to be prepared for
their coming at all times and we
are held responsible for any delay
or accident to them.

Very much of our work, and the
most important part of it, a good
deal of it as in removing or replac-
ing rails requiring, as we say, to
**open the track," is such as would
wreck a train if we are caught un-
prepared for it. The rules provide
that flags should be sent out to pro-
tect trains while the work is being
done and removed to let trains pass,
but with the small force with which
we have to do the work, often the
foreman and two or at most three
men you will easily see if we kept
our men running out and in with
flags we would not have any time
left in which to do the work. Even
the -express trains, though sched-
uled, are often behind time, which
still further increases our perplexi-
ties.

Now think of the early days and
their two light mixed trains, only
one of which, the morning train, ran

in working hours, and that probably-
one of our modern well-filled express
trains carries as many passengers as
the other carried in a month, and
you will not need any further evi-
dence that the responsibility of the
M. of W. employes entrusted with
the repairs of our tracks and bridges
and the lives of all who travel by
rail increases as the number, weight
and speed of trains increase. Thus
whatever the feeling of responsibil-
ity may be, the fact of it isn*t open
to question.

Mr. Leonard makes no reference
to that part of Mr. Lowe's reply'
which was that owing to the vast
increase in the number of passen-
gers carried, and the rate at which
modern trains run, the consequence
of a wreck would be horrible to con-
template. Also, that because of the
increase in traffic and the weight of
rolling stock there was needed in-
creased skill, energy and fidelity on
the part of the M. of W. employes.
From what we have just shown of
the great increase in all that makes
skill and fidelity on our part neces-
sary, the Board, we feel assured, will
agree with us as to this point also,
and will realize something of what
modern traffic's demand for safe
and speedy transit requires of us,
especially bearing in mind the un-
certainty of the arrival of numerous
trains for whose safety we must pro-
vide.

To the credit of the skill, energy
and fidelity of the M. of W. em-
ployes in charge of the tracks and
bridges of the C. P. R., an accident
due to any want of skill or care on
our part is almost unknown, and we
have never yet failed to respond to
each and every call made upon us
at any hour of the day or night and
in any state of the weather, nor has
a M. of W. employe ever booked rest
when his services were required.

As already said, we are responsi-
ble for each life on each train, from
the engineer in the cab to the last



passenger in the last car, as well as
for all the valuable freight and roll-
ing stock hauling and carrying it.
In the interest of the traveling pub-
lic, our fellow employes of the en-
gine and train service, of the C. P.
R. company itself, as well as in the
interest of ourselves and farailic's, we
humbly suggest that the foregoing
are among the reasons which we be-
lieve will fully justify you in ^ving
and us in asking a substantial in-
crease in our rates of pay.

Cost of Living.

Mr. Leonard states that it was
shown and agreed to by us that the
increase in the raise of pay and the
increase in the cost of living had
about balanced, or, indeed, the in-
crease in rates paid us was rather
more than the increase in the cost
of living. We very decidedly dis-
sent from this statement either as
to the rates of pay hs^ring kept pace
with the increase in the cost of liv-
ing or that we agreed to such state-
ment and offered no conflicting tes-
timony. Our statements show a
very large increase in the cost of
living over a fair estimate of the
increase given in the rates of pay.

A fair comparison of the increase
in our rates must take as a basis of
calculation the rates established by
an Arbitration Board of which Sir
John Boyd was chosen chairman by
the representative of the company,
and the M. of W. employes. Tht
arbitration was for the Eastern Di-
vision of the C. P. R. and was for
the purpose partly of establishing a
minimum rate for isection foremen,
and section men expecting that this
minimum established, the above rep-
resentatives could agree upon the
rates to be paid to the balance of the
M. of W. employes, and failing to
agree. Sir John's services had to be
called in again. Mr. Gutelius was
the company's representative and
can verify the above statement. This
arbitration was held in the spring

<>( 1902 and the award made effec-
tive on the first of June, that year.

Taking into consideration the in-
crease in the current rates of pay in
other departments and the increase
in the cost of living in the three
years immediately preceding, Sir
John made his award that taking
these two facts into consideration, a
fair estimate of the increase in the
cost of living was 20 per cent and
he made his award 20 per cent of in-
crease in the cases submitted to him.
Taking the rates submitted by the
company for section foremen and
men as that paid before negotiations
began in March, 1901, as benig $1.50
for foremen and $1.10 fpr men, the
award made the foremen's rate $1.80
and the men's $1.32 per day. By
mutual agreement of the represen-
tatives concerned and to simplify
matters in the accounting depart-
ment of the O P. R., the rates were
made $1.85 for the foremen and $1.30
for section men. The increases
given meantime were taken into ac-
count as part of the 20 per cent in-
crease and we claim now and we
believe, and we think, justly, that the
figures awarded then and the date
1902 should be those from which
both the increase in rates and the in-
crease in the cost of living should be
computed. In the list submitted, a
statement will be found including
articles most commonly used, which
shows a 52 per cent increase. Since
the award above referred to, we
have not received the increased
wages that the increased cost of liv-
ing would entitle us to. The in-
crease in wages has been less than a
third of the increased cost of living.

We beg to remind the Board of
the statement made by the represen-
tative of the men to the effect that
the men on the three roads, namely,
the Grand Trunk Pacific, the Cana-
dian Northern and the C. P. railway,
are asking for uniform rules and
rates on account of a decision giv-
en by the conciliation board last



year, which iinposcrl upon the men
the task of asking for uniform con-
ditions.

Apart from this, the men do not,
and did not, acknowledge that the
C. P. R. are paying higher rates, or
that our men are working under bet-
ter conditions than on so-called com-
peting roads. Practically the same
rules which have been in effect on
the C. P. R. since 1907, have been in
operation on the C. N. R. for the
same period, C. N. R. men have been
paid $1.75 per day, while only the
men in a few yards have received
this rate on the C. P. R.

Summary.

Since 1907 nearly every depart-
ment of employes have received an
increase. The telegraphers have re-
ceived two increases since 1907, and
in any case so far as the other roads
are concerned, if they wish to re-
main in a state of undesirable citi-
zenship, we of the three roads above
mentioned, and the C. P. R. in par-
ticular have other ideals and do not
desire to be placed in such a class.

We note that the company have
changed their application of the
schedule with the words added '*In
Canada." We desire our applica-
tion to read "on lines operated by
the C. P. R. Co." The company also
states rules and rates to take effect
on January 1, 1911. The men gave
the sixty days' notice, as per agree-
ment, on May 2, 1910, which meant
that the schedule, as presented,
should be considered July 2, 1910.
Therefore, the rules and rates given
by this board should be in effect
from July 2, 1910.

In conclusion, we respectfully
submit that the company, having
eliminated the ability-to-pay, and the
increased responsibility, and the in-
creased cost of living having been
clearly established, an increase in
our rates is necessary to meet the
increased cost of living, and we de
sire the Board's careful considcra-

lion of the new schedule as present-
ed by the men of which the Board
has copies. All of which is respect-
fully submitted on behalf of the men.

The Southern Pacific Railway has
given notice to its employes of a cut
in their wages from September 1st.
This, of course, will not affect the
contracts or agreements in force
with their organized employes and
is another very decided answer to
the querv: **Does it pav to organ-
ize?"



-«-o^»-



The effect of a federation of all
branches *of railroad employes is
seen in the recent industrial strug-
gle in Great Britain, where it is esti-
mated that between four hundred
and five hundred thousand employes
struck. The settlement was not
effected by the interested railway
officials, but by the government who
recognized the fact that the men on
strike had perfected an organization
that surpassed in numbers and spon-
taneous united effort any previous
demonstration. Notwithstanding

the fact that the military were
called out upon the request of the
railways, they were unable to keep
the wheels moving and starvation
and misery stared the poorer people
in the face. The majority of these
were the strikers and their families,
who unanimously agreed to starve
sooner than submit to the injustice
meted out to them by their employ-
ers. The Government has a double
object in view. They know that the
men who can organize and control
the masses of labor, as has been done



in this instance, without a single vis-
ible break, can also control and
direct the vote of these same men at
an election. The workers of the Uni-
ted Kingdom have proven their abil-
ity and their strength. Is not this
an object lesson to the organized
workers of the United States and
Canada? Will they profit by it?
