agreements and reduction of wages: of

As W. W. Atterbury. chairman of

ion. Judge R. M. Barton, chairman
of the federal board, informed him
that the employers should be able to
settle the question hy direct negotia

Atterbury declred that the rail

unless the board gives immediate re- j

by delivering what they termed "an
ultimatum" to the labor board, "vio

garded the transportation act, and
flouted exirtinir agencies such as the
interstate commerce commission amH
even congress itself."
General Atterbury's obvious policy,
the telegram said, was "to disrupt
labor unions. turn public opinion
against the employes and place wages
on a tire-war basis so that railway
profits may be enhanced when pros-;
perity returned." The shipper would!
have to pay increased rates and the;
laborer would be exploited, if (Jen-!
