The bulletin advised them that with the conclusion of the day's work the hop would shut down Indefinitely that beginning this morning only .a number- of men sufficient \0 meet the actual demands would be retained on the payrolls of the various departments. To the men TrUo have been earning the dally wage scale fixed by the road and the working men mutually that bulletin meant that about a score of "the full force In each department would be retained while the bulk or the trained men In ea h ine except the carmen would find themselves idle. Retrenchment Xec ssary. But to the employers it meant that so much of the old force as. Is necessary to keep In condition the rolling stock of the road would be continued on the payroll the reduction In the tore being made imperative It Is Mid In order to retrencn. Not the slWitest Intimation had been given the men that a reduction In the force was even contemplated. The great majority of the men let out have been working at 'the shops for years some of them In .fact ever since the shops were started In Atlanta. The exact number of men let out is not known. Men who have been work- Ing at the shops for many years say that between one hundred and fifty and to hundred men are thrown out of employment while representatives of the road offfficlals assert only about ten per cent maybe a fraction- more have been affected by the order. The order was Issued by Chief Master Machinist Murrian. of the Southern" headquarters at Knoxville and a copy was sent to Master Machinist M. M. Royden of the Atlanta shops as well as to the matter machinists it other points along the road. No one connected with the road In Atlanta appears .to know anything additional about the order J. 8. B. Thompson of. the Southern assistant to the president. If out of the city. Hen Who Are Affected. A machinist who has been working at the shops for nearly twenty years says that 'of the machinists of whom something like a hundred and twenty- five to a hundred and fifty are used as the demands upon that branch re quires between seventy-five and one hundred ere out. These men are On the payroll he says at three dollars -and twenty cents a day.- of something like twenty-five to thirty helpers Who earn one dollar and twenty-five cents a day fifteen fully one-half are without work. Six blacksmiths out of about an even dozen are sent adrift. Three dollars and twenty cents to-three dollars and fifty cents is the scale for the blacksmiths. Eight boiler makers about one-half the force. will not return to work. The boiler makers' scale 1 three dollars and twenty cents. Twenty-five carpenters a little less than one-half the force cease earning two and one-half to two seventy-five per day. Twenty-five apprentice boys..some- tiling less than one-half the number whose pay is one dollar a day and five painters who have a scale of two fifty a day are out too. Something- like- a dozen painters are. generally employed. The one line not. touched at all by the order It seem. is that of the car men. Fully two hundred car men. It Is said are kept at the shops. Not even the master machinist here has any Idea how long the lay-off may continue. HELD UNDER $500 BOND CHARGED WITH ROBBERY White Man Held for Assao.lt and Robbery of Colonel W. H.
