My MMMWWWMM Abnormal traffic conditions during the first nine month* of 1917 have made it impossible lor the eight-hour commission, appointed to make a study ot the effects ot the eigh-hour day on the railroads untter the Adamson law, to make any definite recommendations. Major General George Goethals, the chairman, so declared in a report submitted to Congress. The report says: "It will require further study to make anything like a final showing^ Nevertheless, we believe that certain truths regarding the operation of the right-hour lav are now apparent, and .the presentation of such facts as have been collected will be of some service. "We 1 find that the railroads in actual practice have applied the eight-hour day as a basis for reckoning compensation of the following employes: En- ginemen, firemen, conductors, assistant conductors, baggagemen, brakemen and flagmen in road and yard service and generally hostlers. The average number of these .employes was 308,373, which is 17.37 per cent of the total number of railfay em- ployes." These figures, the report said, apply to railroads having an annual operating revenue of $1,000,000 or more an- nnalfr. The percentage of employes in tb« eastern district is 17.69; southern, 17.45, and western, 16.SS. Taking the 1916 schedule as the basis, the law caustd an increased expenditure. of $9S5,S03, or 24.59 per cent, in January, 1917, by railroads having a total mileage ot 104,356. The report continues: "To what extent this change will be permanent we do not know, but a reduction to hours means to tha men that they do not get the wage increase indicated above, and In some cases it means considerable decrease, as where XD«n formerly worked twelve hoars they now work eight hours tor the former ten hours' pay. To the carriers the reduction in hours does not neeeMarily means the escape from all of .the increased cost shown in January. The general change to the eight- hour »hitt has been so recent that it was not practicable for) this commission to undertake a special study of the effect of reduced hours or efficiency. We can make no finding as to how much the percentage ot increase in labor cost shown for the yard service can be reduced. . . . "In road service, actual experience has shown a much less marked change in. operation, but, considering the repeated statement o£ representatives of the railroads that train operation would not be affected by the eight- hour law, the replies of the carriers were somewhat surprising in reveal- Ing hundreds of instances of an actual shortening of the hours of ro:id em- ployes." On the eastern roads in slow- freight service the actual time of engineers on duty is from twelve to thirteen hours per run, and considerably less in the South and West, the report shows. In -both slow and fast freight service the engineers arc running about ten hours a day. Pointing out that the speed basis of the actual eight-hour day is approximately twelve and one-half miles an honfi the report concludes: "A railroad cannot speed up all the freight trains to twelve and one-half miles an hour, including delays, by any universal method. But by close attention to the problem of reducing delays, and with sufficient incentive, the conditions as to hours of work in road-train service can be improved only iy local conditions." ould try it. nervousness soon left me. I sleep weH and feel fine in the morning and able to do my^work. 1 gladly recommend Lydia E. Pinkhsm's Vegetable Compound to make weak nerres itrong." -- Mrs. ALBKKT SULTZE, «03 Olmitead St. 'Winona,. Minn. How often do we bear the expression amongwomen, "I am so nervous, I cannot sleep," or "it seems as though I should fly. " Such women should profit by Mrs. Soltzc'i experience and give this famous root and herb remedy, Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, a trial. Forforty yeara it has been overcoming: such senoua conditions as displace; menta, inflammation, ulceration, irregularities, periodic pains, backache, dizziness, and nervous prostration of women, and is now considered the standard remedy for such ailments.
