The Burlington railroad in keep
ing with the general policy of the
roads over the country has announced
reduction of their working forces
from five to seven per tent, is the an
nouncement made from the headquar
ters of the new general manager of
the lines west of the Missouri river,
W. F. Thiehoff.
In some departments of the rail
road work the reductions will be
heavier than in others it is thought.
In the shop lines as in this city and
llavelock it was estimated at the Lm-
coln offices that the reductions might
reach ten per cent and with extra
gang forces as high as twenty-five
per cent and fifteen per cent with
track laborers. Reductions will do
the heaviest in departments doing
work that can be put off until spring
At the local shops of the Burling
ton Superintendent Baird is now-
working on the plans following the
instructions from the headquarter
but has not reached a definite esti
mate of the extent of the men that
will be affected by the chances.
The reduction will affect about one
hundred men at the llavelock shops
It has been expected for a long while
The Burlington is one of the last of
the big western roads to begin re
ducing forces, the condition of its
business making it possible to defer
the order until the present.
It is understood that a consider
able amount of rebuilding work
bridge work and new steel placing
will be deferred. Heavy concrete
work that mav be done in the winter
time at much expense will be deferred
until April. Forty miles of new steel
hanging over because of late deliv
ery of the rails, will not be placed
during the winter months. Work on
this steel replacement has been de
ferred until March 1. In the mean
time the rails will be distributed and
it will be made certain that the ma
terial is on hand when the date to
do the work arrives.
A great deal of work under way in
the shops can be deferred if attention
to routine work makes that neces
If business had kept up to the
high peak carried in October a reduc
tion in the shops would not have
been possible. Western Triads in
pre-war times, usually made winter
time reductions in forces. These re
ductions usually affected outside forc
es being first to feel the effect. Dur
ing the war period and followinj
business has been so heavy that the
big difficulty has been to get men
enough to do the work.
For the first time in four years
the railroads have faced a serious
reduction in business this fall. The
cattle business was handled early.
The mild weather eut coal transpor
tation nearly a half on the lines
west. Grain price reductions cut
down the grain business. Tho su
gar beet traffic has about been fin
ished. Less than carload business be
gan to drop with the beginning of
November and the drop has been
growing more and more since that
dat?. Plainly stated the people rjuit
buying and business slumped. The
carload business held up better than
the less than carload tonnage, but
even that has begun to slump.
Assistant General Manager Thie
hoff said that it is necessary for the
health of the railroads and the well
lieing of the country that the rail
roads be efficiently and economically
managed. It is not possible to
greatly reduce the number of men
employed in yards, in the round hous
es and at stations, because a certain
number of men are required to run
trains and keep engines going re
gardless of the amount of business.
The country must have railroad ser
vice. It is possible, he said, to put
off a great deal of work that can be
done in warm weather better than
in the winter time and that is just
what is being done. All the men
laid off now will eventually find a
demand from the road for their ser
vices And Mr. Thiehoff hoped that
the demand for labor would be heavy
enough in the early spring to need
every man who is laid off now.
"Force reduction is always a dis
tasteful thing." he said, "but it is
necessary at this time. The fact Is
revenue has not come up to expecta
tions. . The new rates were based
on what transportation was costing
the railroads at the time they were
made, and since that time the rail
labor board has added other expenses
which the new rates do not cover.
The transportation act puts it up to
the railroads to operate as effiefpnt Vi
and economically as possible arfd X
force reduction is therefore made ne
cessary." Railroad men expect a marked im
provement in business by spring time
and because of this outlook the re
duction in force is not regarded so
seriously as it might otherwise be.
If financial conditions make it pos
sible many believe a great deal of
rebuilding and new' construction
will follow the coming of spring.
