Monday Evemngr, July IS, 1914. T H E D E C A T U R R E V I E W Page Seven They Do Not Want Home Terminals Abolished. "W« ara not looking: for any immediate trouble in this proposed strike ·f railroaders," said a well known Wabash engineman recently, "but unless the roads show some degree of concession there will eventually be a general walk-out. "On* of the things that the managers of the railroads want to do Is to abolish home terminals and make all ·nglnemen worlc a ten or ele\~en-hour day. That would mean that engineers and firemen would no longer have homes. When they reached their home terminal and had two or three hours yet to go, they would have to continue on the road until the time was up. "If that were carried through, we .would practically be homeless. All of cur time off duty would be spent In dead-heading around the country and sleeping In eaoookes. FAY BT HOUR. "Another thing the railroads want to do is to pay the englnemen by the day Instead of by the mile. Thus, after a» engineer came In from a run from Chicago of five hours, he might be put Into a switch engine and made bump cars about the yards for another five hours. "The firemen are also objecting to the long drags which they are forced to carry. Sometimes trains of from seventy-five to 100 cars are sent out and the fireman is forced to shovel tons and tons of coal. It is really more work than any human being should be asked to do. The firemen are asking for an extra man to help them out on their trips, thus making two firemen to one engine when the drag le heavy." WANT TO KNOW WHERE MONEY WENT If the family skeletons, whose distant rattllngs and clackings have IssueJ from the vicinity of the Wabash-Pittsburgh terminal closet, really Inhabit that dark and dismal region as expected, they must come out and face the light of day. This decision has been made by the Interstate and Foreign Commerce committee of the house, which body has summoned Former President of the Wabash and the Wheeling Lake Erie to appear before it next Wednesday in company with R e p r e s e n t a t i v e Townsend, of New Jersey. Mr. Ramsey will he asked to explain his side of the claim made by Representative Townsend that the Wabash-Pittsburgh Teiminal company has been wrecked ana looted and its bonds hammered d o w n to merely a nominal price. Permission for this hearing has been obtained by the representative who says that Mr. Ramsey wishes to answer some of the emphatic questions concerning the wreck of the company going around at present. Bankers and brokers, the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker all want to know where their money went. It is understood that Mr. Ramsey, the f o r m e r president of the Banner Route, was not active In the financial management of the Terminal, but gave his a t t e n t i o n to operating matters and the c o n s t i u c t i o n of the extension.
