EGGS FOE HATCHING
Chicago. Feb. 22. Railroad em
ployers of the nation today had lest
their test case before the United
States railroad labor board for imme
diate reduction in wages of employes
The board in a decision rendered to
the Atlanta, Birmingham and Atlan
tic railroad in effect said:
The fact that a railroad cannot pay
the wages fixed by the labor board
dees not empower it to notify its em
ployes that wages are to be cut; the
road must first prove that the wages
are not "just and reasonable."
The Atlantic. Birmingham and At
lantic railroad case follows:
The road posted notices seven
weeks ago that wages were to be cut.
Employes appealed to the labor
board which decided in favor of em
ployes. It has been generally reported that
railroads all over the country had in
tended to post wage reduction notices
in the case the Atlantic. Birming
ham and Atlantic had won.
Chicago, Feb. 22. Railroad offi
cials an dlabor leaders are eagerly
awaiting the outcome of the case of
the maintenance of way employes and
train dispatchers against the Eric
railroad which is scheduled to be
heard by the United States railway
board here tomorrow. The Erie was
the first big railroad to arbitrarily
reduce wages and also Increaso
The Erie case will start with a
precedent established by the board in
two rulings this week which seem to
forecast a decision The board rlued
in the case of the Atlanta, Birming
ham and Atlantic and the Missouri
and North Arkansas that because no
conference hed been held between
the road an demployes concrnoing
the reasonableness and justness of
the present wage scale, "the board
does not deem it necessary to decide
to what extent, if at all. a carrier's
financial condition is a factor in the
determination of just and reasonable
wages to be paid by such carrier."
Such a ruling compels a road to
pay just and reasonable wages
whether money is being made or not
and limits future hearings to the is
sue of whether or not the wages are
just and reasonable. The roads are
ordered to confer with their em
ployes on this subject and if no agree
ment can be reached, the board will
hear the case.
Brotherhood leaders and other
railroad labor chiefs" hailed these de
cisiosn today as a distinct victory.
However, some dissatisfaction was
expressed over the Missouri and
North Arkansas ruling, which also
requires the men to accept the pres
ent wage cut under protest. The
board gave its reason that it neg
lected to take action in the case prior
to February 1, the late upon which
the M. & N. A. announced the wage
PASS THIS WAY
AT EARLY HOUR
JOE THOMPSON AT PLATTE RIVER
BRIDGE REPORTS PASSING OF
CAR WITH FOUR MEN.
A lazy liver leads to chronic dys
pepsia and constipation weakens
the whole system. Doan's Regulets
(30c per box) act mildly on the liver
and bowels. At all drug stores.
Sometime during the night the
bank at Ilotve, Neb., a few mile:
somn or Auburn was entered and
the safe deposit boxes of the patron
of the bank were stolen and carried
away by the robbers. From the re
ports received here it seems that the
robbers did not attempt to blow open
the safe or molest it in any way af
ter they had broken into the bank
and secured the boxes in which the
customers had been in the habit of
placing their valuables.
The robbers on making their es
cape from Howe evidently came north
on the way to Omaha and the indi
cations are that they crossed the
Platte river auto bridge four miles
north of this city at 4 o'clock thi?
morning, headed for the north. The
bridge tender, Joe Thompson v.a
aroused about this time in the morn
ins wun tn' noise oi someone on
the bridge and throwing on his coat
hastened out to the gate to find a
large sized touring car ready to crosr
over the bridge, the parties in the
car having forced, the gate that is
swung over the driveway at night to
prevent anyone crossing unawares to
The men seemed in a great hurrv
and did not object to paying the toll
but their chief desire was to be on
their way. The car was a large one
and as far as Mr. Thompson could see
in the semi-darkness was of a dark
green color and occupied bv four
men, only one of whom the bridge
tender saw clearly and this was a
man rather short and stout in build.
At this time there was nothing
known of the robbery of the bank as
it was not discovered until the bank
opened for business there this morn
ing and at once Countv Atlornev
Armstrong of Nemaha countv sent
out notices to the surrounding conn
ties am! the one to this countv
started the investigation that reveal
ed the story of Mr. Thompson and
howed undoubtedly the robbers had
passed this way.
There is no possible way to t'Sti
mate the loss of the bank and iti
customers until the owners of the
boxes make a personal check of what
they had in the various boxes. A
reward of $50 has been offered for
the return of the boxes to th hnnk
or the notification of the authorities I t&Z
i iu in fir wiierfauuuis. , i ryi4
ine system oi saie deposit boxes
used by the bank at Howe was of the
oiu type mat does not require a
great deal of work to open and get
away with. and consequentlv the job
of getting away with the boxes w&s
comparatively easy for the men.
The more modern and up-to-date
deposit boxes such a? are used by the
larger tanks and similar to the sys
tem now installed in the First Na
tional bank of this city, are very dif
ficult to enter even with the most
strenuous work of the safe breaker
and the individual boxes are pro
tected by the most modern lockf
which requires not onlv the kev of
the box owner by the master key of
the bank to open it up and the boxes
cannot be opened without both keys
being used. This robbery is a dem
onstration of the fact that the mod
ern safe deposit boxes are after all
the cheapest in the long run for the
bank that has them.
