Among the Railroad Men
There is every indication that the
railroad men in all branches of he
mechanical service will soon mane a
concerted request for Increased wages.
It is a fact easy of demonstration that
the wage has not kept pace with the
amount of work demanded from the
men, to say nothing of keeping pace
with the Increased cost of living. Train
men are compelled to perform about
200 per cent more service than they
did ten years ago, but the wage scale
has remained discouragingly near the
old point. The men believe they should
have some share in the benefits of the
improved machines and methods.
The report is that the enginemen
west ct Chlc.igo will ask for a read
justment of the scale. This will es
pecially uffect the "Q" and the North
Wfstern. The switchmen will first
submit their demands to the Gould
system, and then follow up by doing
the same with the other roads. The
condaotors will give their first atten
tion to the Great Northern.
Only a comparative lew of the
switchmen belong to the Switchmen's
Brotherhood, 1 he majority of them be
ing members of the Brotherhood of
Hallway Trainmen. There is the ut
most harmony between the switchmen
of the two organizations, however, and
they will stand together when their
demands are made.
There are some evidences of friction
betwet n the engineers' and the fire
men's organizations. The Brotherhood
of Locomotive Firemen recently de
cided on a change of name and will
hereafter be known as the Brotherhood
of Liocomotive Firemen and Engineers.
Nnttnraliv tbla has aroused some on-!
position in the Brotherhood of Loco
motive Engineers. A great many mem
bers of the Bremen's organization wha
have been promoted to the right side
of the cab have retained their mem
bership with the firemen. The result
has been more or less friction which
the head officers have not been able
to quite remove.
The same situation prevails, only
to a more limited extent in other
branches of the train service. The
brakemcn belong to the Brotherhood
of-Railway Trainmen, while the con
ductors have a separate organization.
A number of recently promoted brake
men continue their membership in the
Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and
decline to enter the Order of Railway
Conductors. Tt is going to take some
good head work to get these little mat
ters straightened out.
During the twenty months ending
September 1, 384 locomotive engineers
were, killed while in the line of duty,
During the same period 1, 120 engi
neers received disability benefits.
Grand Chief Stone says that tne aver
ase life of a locomotive engineer is
ten years from the time he assumes
charge of an engine. The Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers has paid out
millions of dollars to disabled engi
neers and to the widows and orphans
of those who have met death while on
The Wabash seems to be in line for
a bit of trouble over the wage scale.
A Chicago paper has the following to
say about it:-
"Engineers, firemen and switchmen
have specific complaints against the
Wabash. If the enginemen quit work
the switchmen will also walk out.
"Warren S. Stone, grand chief of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
presided at a. meeting of the repre-

sentatives of that organization which
was held in the Grand Pacific hotel.
Stone declined to discuss the possi
bility of a strike, but he was not averse'
to discussing the general order of the
Wabash company which declared that
engineers on fast trains should not in
the future be permitted to wear eye
glasses. It was said that it was likely
that the engineers, firemen and switch
men would meet before the close of the
month and that they would come to
some kind of an arrangement that
would put the one agreement at the
back of the other. At the present time
there is no agreement, between the dif
ferent unions of railway organizations
and there is none which may become
involved in a fight with a railroad com
pany that may hope for the support
of another union of railway men."
Getting Ready For a Lot of Good
Times This Winter.
Something is going to happen. We
are-going to have a "Bazaar", and a
jolly good time thrown in. Will let
every one know about it in time to
come. - Of course we know every one
wants to come.

THE AMERICAN FEDERATION.
Meets in Minneapolis This Year and
Can Be Had for Lincoln.
The annual convention of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor meets in
Minneapolis on November 12. Lin
coln ought to have a couple of good
hustlers up there to work for Lincoln.
There is no reason why tie 1907 con
vention should not be held in this
city, and the editor of The Wagework
er believes that a little systematic
hustling will secure it fte"has men
tioned the matter to several local mer
chants and they have exprtssed them
selves as willing to assist in jgettiny ft.
The convention would bring several
hundred representative labor men to
Lincoln, and they would be here from
ten days to two weeks. The atten
dance is growing every year, and with
its splendid railroad' facilities and its
central location, Lincoln would attract
an unusually large attendance. Local
unions, and especially the central
body, ought to take the matter up at
once and perfect plans for going after
the convention. , t ' 'i' 'i
. Work has never been better in the
electrical business than at present, and.
the local men are hustling for all they
are worth. , . :.
The Citizens' Street Railway com
pany has its trolley lines and rail con-'
nections all roady. The track work
will be completed to Eleventh and O
streets this week, and it Is thought
that cars will be running regularly be
fore the end of nest week. This line
has afforded employment to quite a
number of electrical workers.
Electrical workers are still on strike
at Louisville. - . ;. .
The electrical workers organized six
teen unions in August.
Electrical workers of Grand Rapids,
Mich., with the exception of three
shops, have been granted the eight
hour day. ,
Detroit electrical workers have ar
ranged for a series of lectures on the
ethics of their calling. Omaha unions,
ought to continue their open meetings
with a technical address sandwiched
in with the balance of the program.
Three hundred and fifty telephone
girls of Chicago struck against going
into the exchange by a rear door to
reach which they had . to traverse a
back alley, and the rear of several
saloons. The public soon awoke to
the fact that the girls were in the
right and the company now permits
a front door entrance. . ' .
Local plumbers have taken ample
doses of ginger lately, and as a result
are up and coming, in the matter of
pushing the work of unionism.
Ed. English has been down in Fair
bury showing the natives of that burg
what a union plumber can do to make
"scab" work look like the. puttering of -a
schoolboy. . ) r
The plumbers had 250 delegates in
attendance at Toronto.- Among the
more "important subjects before the
convention was the establishment of a
Home, s A proposition was under con
sideration from Pueblo. '.
Seattle plumbers, painters and sheet
metal workers have secured increased
wages, while painters and sign writers
obtained the Saturday half holiday.'
The Steam Engineers have organ
ized unions in St. Louis, Mo.; Olym
pia, Wash.; Norwich, Conn.; Spring
field, O .; New York N. Y.: and EiW
